A mystery in two acts; one is a heinous crime the other is not.
Yesterday on the ABC program Good Morning America two time Oscar™ winning actor Tom Hanks said a mal mot during an interview with Elizabeth Vargas. The word that he said was fuck, a commonly used word despite it being considered vulgar in certain circles and indeed on the public airwaves. To this, We, Ourselves, of The Collective say, “So what?” For all his tiresless professionalism, philanthropy and down right kindheartedness to fellow Human Beings, The Meditators see no need to hold Tom Hanks up as some sort of swearing criminal. It can be summed up as a moment of counter-intuitive exuberance on the part of the actor.
Conversely, The Meditators are concerned with a conundrum facing Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative [AFDI] and Stop the Islamization of America [SIOA] and her positions regarding a Muslim Brotherhood “infiltration” into the administration of President Barack Obama. This delusion even gained purchase in the mind of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann who called for a full blown investigation into an aide of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Huma Abedin. Pamela Geller, writing at her blog Atlas Shrugged 2000:
McCain is cavalier, lax and sloppy with the facts about the greatest threat facing our nation. Bachmann should be lauded and applauded. And Congress should be pressing for the prosecution of Muslim Brotherhood groups named as such in the captured internal document released during the Holy Land Foundation trial.
Ms Geller was interviewed in February 2011 by FrontPage with Jamie Glazov magazine where she said the following about connections between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Oabama administration:
FP: And people with ties to these organizations are involved with the Obama Administration, right?
Geller: Yes they are, Jamie, in various ways. On the first day of his presidency, the President showed an eagerness to be friendly toward the Brotherhood: he chose Ingrid Mattson, president of ISNA to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral during inaugural festivities on January 20, 2009.
Superficially, Obama’s choice was understandable: Ingrid Mattson was a Canadian convert to Islam who carefully cultivated the image of a moderate spokesperson. But ISNA has even admitted ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, which calls itself “one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine.”
Mattson has also tried to set Jews and Christians against one another. Speaking at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government in March 2007, Mattson said: “Right-wing Christians are very risky allies for American Jews, because they [the Christians] are really anti-Semitic. They do not like Jews.”
But Obama didn’t seem to care about any of that. And so she prayed for Barack Hussein Obama on January 20, 2009. And it gets worse: after that, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Senior Advisor for Public Engagement and International Affairs and a longtime, close Obama aide, asked Mattson to join the White House Council on Women and Girls, which is dedicated to “advancing women’s leadership in all communities and sectors – up to the U.S. presidency – by filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women.”
A hijab-wearing leader of a group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorists and Islamic supremacists – that’s diverse, all right!
In a May 2012 article posted at WorldNet Daily Pamela Geller said the following about the Arab-American Institute:
Our AFDI/SIOA Jessica Mokdad Human Rights conference on April 29 in Dearborn, Mich., was the first conference of its kind, dedicated to increasing awareness of honor killings and gendercide under the Shariah. But in the aftermath of the highly successful conference, Arab-American and Muslim groups continue to attack us instead of focusing on the real problem: the victimization of girls in the Muslim community.
There are videos going around by Islamic supremacists such as the pro-honor killing “journalist” Omar Baddar, new media coordinator at the Arab American Institute (AAI), claiming that they were refused entry to the Jessica Mokdad Human Rights Conference because they were Arabs and Muslims. This is a fabrication out of whole cloth. In reality, every attendee had to register, and we were overbooked. The furor over these people who were supposedly denied entry, who actually had not registered at all, is a manufactured nontroversy designed to deflect attention away from the grim reality of Islamic honor killing.
Indian Governor Mitch Daniels was honored by the Arab-American Institute and drew considerable ire from Pamela Geller and commneters on her site in this post at Atlas Shrugged 2000
Mitch Daniels has become the new it boy of the GOP and the race for the Republican presidential nominee in 2012. I, OTOH, am not impressed by this johnny come lately, but have kept my reservations quiet until now.
Once you are “honored” and “awarded” by Islamic supremacists, that should be the kibosh on any candidate. Tim Pawlenty, as Governor of Minnesota, had his Housing Finance Agency set up a Shariah-compliant lending fund. His fumble of Franken’s wholesale theft of the election Senate race was bad enough; sharia finance is the death knell for a limpwristed RINO.
Back to Mitch Daniels. The American Arab Institute, co-founded by James Zogby, is presenting their annual award to Mitch Daniels.
Comments from conservatives to this post were clear–to be associated with such a group means a candidate is no longer worthy of conservative consideration for a GOP nomination in 2012:

Buuuuh-byyyeee Mitch Daniels.
THANK YOU ATLAS, for revealing this hidden side, and undoubtedly demolishing his admittedly slim chances.

No RINO dhimmies! Above all else, it is the one big fat deal breaker for me. My number 1 issue for a potential GOP candidate for 2012is their stand on islam. I am not alone in this. I will do everything in my power to undermine campaigns of RINO dhimmies. We need Allen West, dear God how I wish we could get him to run!

I never could stand Mitch Daniels, and now I really hate him. Thanks for the great expose, Pamela! I watched Daniels’ speech at CPAC, and he just gave me the creeps. I could not understand at all those who were pushing the idea of Daniels for Pres. There is NO WAY I would ever support such a Jihad-loving, Jew-hating scum!
Allen West for President!

Here’s what you do with the Arabs and Muslims in this country – internment camps. They worked in WWII and they should work just fine now. Daniels and his family should be locked up until the war on terror has been won – which unfortunately for him might be beyond his lifetime.
So this clearly show an important factor; that Governor Daniels, because of his association with AAI, is not in the eyes of Geller and conservative commenters, fit to serve as POTUS. It appears, according to this article at Right Wing Watch that these persons are confronted with a bit of a conundrum or are speeding toward hypocrisy fueled by cognitive dissonance. Five days ago, the Arab American Institute announced :
On Friday, October 12, 2012, the Romney campaign announced “Arab Americans for Romney,” a national coalition of Arab American supporters of Gov. Mitt Romney’s bid for the presidency of the United States.
In a statement released by the campaign, Governor Romney stated:
“I am very proud to have so many distinguished Arab-Americans on my team,” said Mitt Romney. “This country has been a beacon to people around the globe. The American Dream belongs to the world, but lately, it has been harder to pursue that dream. I am committed to bringing prosperity to the United States and creating the good jobs that foster opportunity and will inspire another generation of dreamers. Together, we will restore America to the land of possibility it has always been.”
“Like the rest of the country, many Arab Americans are concerned with the direction the country is heading,” said Arab American Institute Chairman, Hon. George R. Salem who serves as National Co-Chair of “Arab Americans for Romney” and is also a member of Gov. Romney’s Labor Committee. “Our polling shows that the overwhelming majority of Arab Americans, 82 percent, consider jobs and the economy the most important issue facing the country. Mitt Romney understands that Arab Americans, who are business owners, doctors, lawyers and public servants, have a lot at stake this election and are an extremely important constituency in the race for the White House.”
The full text from the Romney/Ryan campaign issued on 12 October 2012 can be read here. At this hour Ms Geller has not issued a statement declaring Mr Romney unfit to hold the office of POTUS because of his association with AAI which is a classic case of criminal hypocrisy. We, Ourselves, of The Collective ask Ms Geller, why are you silent on these matters now. How can you continue your support in the light of your past statements and support for Mitt Romney, or even better how can any thinking Human Being now take you seriously in any of your writings?
