Juan Cole and CAIR Accuse 2008 Presidential Candidates of "Islamophobia"
Yet another Campus Watch blog post of mine on the tireless (when it comes to promoting CAIR) Juan Cole:
As noted recently by Campus Watch, University of Michigan history professor Juan Cole will be speaking at a CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) fundraiser this March. In light of Cole's high-profile fundraising efforts for CAIR, one assumes he either shares the group's Islamist political agenda or serves as a useful idiot in its promotion.Read the whole thing.
Strengthening that assumption, it turns out Cole will be the primary speaker at yet another upcoming CAIR event, this time on January 23 at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Moderated by CAIR Legislative Director Corey Saylor and titled, "Fear for Votes: How Some 2008 Candidates are Exploiting Islamophobia," the event will undoubtedly push the idea that any and all discussion of radical Islam in the 2008 presidential election is tantamount to "Islamophobia."
