WorldNet Daily – It doesn’t take much to get one’s self branded a racist in Michigan these days.
Donald Trump pulled off an upset win in the state that has gone Democrat in the previous two presidential elections, but that hasn’t stopped the entrenched establishment from demonizing those who hold Trump-like views on immigration.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is teaming up with local Detroit media to paint a Maryland-based journalist as an anti-Muslim “extremist” and “Islamophobe” simply because he has produced fact-based research on the U.S. government’s refugee resettlement program.
James Simpson has been invited to speak at the annual Business Roundtable Breakfast in Oakland County, one of several counties in Michigan that have been pummeled with refugees from the Middle East over the last eight years of the Obama administration.
“Civilization jihad” is underway. Get Leo Hohmann’s brand new book, “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” for an in-depth look at the plan of radical Muslims to fundamentally transform the population of the United States.
Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who won re-election in a landslide on Nov. 8, has been a vocal critic of the refugee program, threatening to sue the administration for violating the Refugee Act of 1980. Under Obama, the feds have distributed thousands of refugees into Oakland County without advance notice to Patterson and other local government officials. Once the federal month that follows the refugees runs out, Oakland County taxpayers are left holding the bag for the education and welfare of the refugees.
But the SPLC’s attack stance has now frightened away one of the Roundtable event’s main sponsors, the Fifth Third Bank.
SPLC is the same organization that tried to label former GOP presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson an “extremist” only to remove the post from its website and apologize after an intense nationwide backlash in 2015. The SPLC website still includes a negative “file” on Carson maintaining he has said things that “most people would conclude are extreme,” citing as the main example Dr. Carson’s belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.
But the newest source of the media-made controversy in Michigan is Simpson, author of the 2015 book “The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.”
Simpson has been invited by Patterson to speak at the annual economic forum on Dec. 1. Simpson is a research fellow at Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. The SPLC was used as the source of the negative stories about Simpson that appeared in the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit Metro Times.
Simpson’s book, published by Center for Security Policy, exposes both secular and church groups working as paid government resettlement contractors and provides data on the costs of the resettlement program. Oakland County, along with Wayne and Macomb counties, has been on the receiving end more than 7,000 Muslim refugees from Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Bosnia and elsewhere over the past 20 years. The Islamization has been so intense that many local opponents have started referring to Dearborn as “Dearbornistan” and Hamtramck as “Shariahville.”
Patterson issued the following statement to WND:
“Mr. Simpson was invited to speak at the Oakland County Business Roundtable precisely because he is provocative. It’s not about whether one agrees with him, but it’s about stimulating meaningful conversation on a timely and important topic in our country. It would be rather Orwellian to exclude him. After all, this is still the United States of America where the First Amendment protects even the most contentious speech.”…
