Sharia Law In The US
Sean kicked off the show sharing his thoughts on recent information that suggests Islamic radicals are planning on taking over the United States by replacing the United States Constitution with Sharia Law. Originally written in the Dallas Morning News, writer Jason Trahan explained,” Amid the mountain of evidence released in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, the most provocative has turned out to be a handful of previously classified evidence detailing Islamist extremists’ ambitious plans for a U.S. takeover. A knot of terrorism researchers say the memos and audiotapes, many translated from Arabic and containing detailed strategies by the international Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood, are proof that extremists have long sought to replace the Constitution with Shariah, or Islamic law.” “Now that couldn’t happen here, could it,” questioned Sean, “They have Sharia courts in many places in Europe and the whole idea is to follow the European model.” There is little doubt that America’s Constitution remains strong but the due diligence of each of us will go a long way toward protecting our liberties.
Cal Thomas and Bob Beckel
Fox News contributors Cal Thomas and Bob Beckel joined Sean to discuss the latest controversial threats to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas where liberal activists suggested we “string him up and send him back to the fields.” “If this were Cal Thomas or Sean Hannity this would be discussed for weeks,” a frustrated Hannity argued, “Why are liberal activists saying these things and nothing happens.” Beckel defended these liberals saying, “Their comments were out and out racist and I’m sorry those people purport to be on our side but you’re going to get that on the fringe of any movement.” Cal Thomas offered his thoughts saying, “ There’s always been a double standard but the media always likes to take the fringe and get people fighting with each other. If anyone believes a double standard doesn’t exist should recall the demise of Senator Trent Lott in December of 2002." It’s true, both sides can say some pretty ignorant things, but both sides should pay the price equally.
Congressman Pete King: Fights The Islamic Threat
Congressman Peter King joined Sean to discuss the latest controversy surrounding his plans to host Congressional hearings on the radicalization of the American Muslim community and homegrown terrorism. “I admire what you’re doing in speaking out about radical Islamic imams that are in the United States,” began Sean, “yet every time you speak out you’re criticized, why?” “Forget me,” quickly retorted King, “Eric Holder, the most liberal Attorney General we’ve ever had, has said that he has trouble sleeping at night because of the growing number of Islamic radicals in America.” Congressman King is under attack for trying to get a handle on the growing number of radicals in the United States but the reality is the reality and kudos to the distinguished gentleman from New York for bringing the issue to the forefront for further discussion.
