The 2016 Election has proven---and in fact continues to prove---the complete degeneracy and corruption of those who shaped policy and public opinion for the last few decades. We had another example yesterday from one Hussam Ayloush, the Los Angeles director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Ayloush said via Twitter that:
"I am sad about the crashed Russian military jet. The TU-154 could have carried up to 180 military personnel instead of just 92!"
Ha-ha. Humor worthy of that other Left-Wing icon, Stephan Colbert. In fact, the Russian plane was carrying a military band and a group of humanitarian aid workers; but we can well understand Alyloush's glee. In 2015, Senator Ted Cruz presented evidence that CAIR was connected to the Wahhabi-run Moslem Brotherhood and Hamas terror-organizations. Both groups are supporters of the Jihadists in Syria and Iraq.
In spite of these connections, however, CAIR has had representatives at the White House during both the Bush and Obama Administrations. They've actually helped shape US anti-terror policy---including writing the 'Rules of Engagement' for police and military forces. CAIR was largely responsible for placing Moslem chaplains in the military and removing Christian ones.
As for Ayloush himself, he is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post. That publication states in its author biography that Ayloush is "a life-long civil rights and human rights activist, and a community organizer. He is Executive Officer of the Los Angeles office of CAIR; and a second-term elected board member of the California Democratic Party. He also serves on the board of the Moslem-American Homeland Security Congress."
Unsurprisingly, Ayloush is also a graduate of American taxpayer-funded public universities.
In the effete US of the 21st Century, people like this become community leaders; policy advisors to the White House; published authors and pundits; and leaders of political parties. It's no wonder we're falling behind other nations across the board.
