Dorrie O’Brien leads the Texas chapter of ACT for America, a virulently Islamophobic group led by Brigitte Gabriel. She spoke at an anti-Islam rally in Texas recently and offered up xenophobia, Islamophobia and misology all in one tight little ball of stupid.
“Stealth jihad is working in about every circle of influence you can think of in the United States, like law, politics, entertainment, like in movies and books and videos, in advertising and in publishing,” O’Brien said, in remarks captured in a YouTube video of the event, which was organized by the far-right groups Overpasses for America and 2 Million Bikers to DC as part of a national anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant day of protests and which featured representatives of a number of anti-immigrant groups.
“Have you guys noticed, I mean really noticed, calendars lately, that the Islamic holy days are in all the calendars?” she asked.
Quick, clutch your pearls!
O’Brien went on to tell of an incident at a high school in New York state where students protested after the Pledge of Allegiance was read in Arabic as part of a foreign language week.
She said that it was “fantastic” that the school eventually apologized, but that it “happened for the wrong reason.”
“The school was celebrating ‘world languages’ or some such thing, ‘multiculturalism’ — socialism, in other words,” she lamented. “There is a whole lot wrong with pledging to the flag in Arabic, the language of the people trying to kill us, but the schools should be celebrating English! I don’t think we should have to have a ‘celebrate world languages.’”
Yeah, why would we celebrate learning things? Learning is only for liberal wimps who hate the baby Jesus.
