Despite statements from both President Obama and vanquished Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, liberals have been unable to accept the fact that Republican Donald J. Trump won Tuesday’s election and is set to become the 45th President of the United States. Many have taken to the streets in violent protests, others have demanded Trump and his supporters be assassinated and still others are working to enact a coup d’état by encouraging the Electoral College to ignore the will of the voters. Now comes word that a leader of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a tweet advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government.
Early Wednesday morning, Hussam Ayloush, head of the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office, tweeted this:
Ok, repeat after me:
Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam.
(Arab Spring chant)
— Hussam Ayloush (@HussamA) November 9, 2016
Daniel Pipes explained:
That second line is Arabic (“الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام”) for “The people wants to bring down the regime.”
In other words, Ayloush unambiguously and directly called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
Not because we doubt Pipes, but because we wanted to see this for ourselves, we ran the Arabic through Google Translate and got this:
Not exactly subtle, is it?
A post at Sean Hannity’s website notes:
The slogan was first used during the Tunisian Revolution which kicked off the Arab Spring. It was also used frequently during the Egyptian revolution in which the regime of Hosni Mubarak was overthrown.
Ayloush is not a marginal figure but someone with access to the heights of American power, including the White House. According to an Investigative Project on Terrorism analysis in 2012, he
WAS A DELEGATE TO THE 2012 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION IN CHARLOTTE, N.C. [AND] … ATTENDED AT LEAST TWO WHITE HOUSE MEETINGS. THE LOGS SHOW AYLOUSH MET WITH PAUL MONTEIRO, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF THE WHITE HOUSE OFFICE OF PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT ON JULY 8, 2011 AND AMANDA BROWN, ASSISTANT TO THE WHITE HOUSE DIRECTOR OF POLITICAL AFFAIRS PATRICK GASPARD, ON JUNE 6, 2009. ACCORDING TO RELIABLE SOURCES, MONTEIRO WAS WHITE HOUSE LIAISON FOR SECRET CONTACTS WITH CAIR, ESPECIALLY WITH AYLOUSH.
Further, “IPT has learned that the White House logs curiously have omitted Ayloush’s three meetings with two other senior White House officials.”
Pipes also said that Ayloush would normally have kept this particular emotion “under wraps,” and “offered a rare, candid insight into the mind of one CAIR apparatchik.”
He also noted that advocating the overthrow of the government is a violation of federal law:
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States … Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
But as we’ve learned over the last eight years, some are more equal than others.
