Oh, yay! January is going to be a great TV month. "Rome" is returning to HBO, I've already seen the ads for it around my neighborhood, "American Idol" starts a new season, and a special two-night 4-hour premiere of "24" starts Sunday, Jan 14th at 8pm/7c. I can't wait. And neither can CAIR. As Henry Mark Holzer explains,
"It is not without reason that Fox TV’s hit counterterrorism show “24,” with its take-no-prisoners protagonist Jack Bauer, has captured the imagination of millions of Americans. Year after year, Bauer’s Los Angeles-based “Counter Terrorism Unit” has faced down and bested domestic and foreign terrorists intent on destroying American cities and eventually our nation itself.Click here to read the rest of Holzer's excellent article describing how CAIR wraps itself in the American flag, invoking the Constitution, and is the preeminent domestic mailed fist of Islam in the velvet glove of civil liberties.
Not surprisingly—because while most Muslims are not terrorists, most terrorists are Muslims—Bauer’s principal enemies have been Muslims. Art imitates life. Although Bauer is smart, resourceful, and ruthless in his patriotic determination to keep America safe, neither he nor Fox TV were tough enough to withstand pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It was at CAIR’s insistence that Sutherland make the politically correct statement quoted below on national television.
Hi. My name is Kiefer Sutherland, and I play counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer on Fox’s ’24.’ I would like to take a moment to talk to you about something that I think is very important. Now while terrorism is obviously one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is important to recognize that the American Muslim community stands firmly beside their fellow Americans in denouncing and resisting all forms of terrorism. So in watching ’24,’ please, bear that in mind.
CAIR is using the American legal system to intimidate the exercise of free speech, to undermine our homeland defense and to advance Muslim cultural infiltration of our domestic institutions by seeking special dispensations concerning dress, national holidays, educational texts, the content of books, movies, television, and more.
