Newsletter #180 – Tennessee ACLU: The Left’s Biggest Hypocrite (part 4 of 5)

In 1971, Saul Alinsky published Rules for Radicals “for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be,” and teach the Have-Nots how to take the power away from those that have it.

Alinsky described himself as an agnostic; other sources describe him as a nihilist. Either way, for Alinsky, morality and/or ethical behavior was whatever anyone believed. He wrote that “truth is relative,” a convenient way to divorce “truth” from facts.

The Nashville projects

ACLU’s Hedy Weinberg serves as an advisor to the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC). In 2007, the Highlander School (an ally organization of the ACLU), started its Justice School for TIRRC, providing “nuts and bolts training on organizing and leadership skills.”

Weinberg was also a founding member of the Nashville For All of Us campaign which started in late 2008 to oppose a Metro Councilman’s “English First” proposal. In 2007, Eric Crafton proposed that with limited exceptions, the city government conduct business only in English. It passed the Metro council but was vetoed by then Mayor Bill Purcell.

Following Alinsky’s rule #10, which says that “the public sympathizes with the underdog,” Weinberg found a community she could market as unjustly marginalized by the government.

Using the Highlander’s training techniques, TIRRC worked against Crafton’s proposal which was defeated in a 2009 special election by a 56 – 44% vote.

Nashville Next is a long-range plan to guide Nashville and Davidson County’s development from 2015 through 2040. The plan was developed through a community-driven process emphasizing the inclusion of groups considered to be under-represented in civic processes. So, advocates from TIRRC representing legal and illegal immigrants, the American Center for Outreach (ACO) representing Islamists, and the political director for the Tennessee Democratic Party heavily influenced the plan.

The 2013 Partnering for an Equitable and Inclusive Nashville(Partnering Report), written by Hedy’s husband, Dan Cornfield, is the Nashville for All of Us Steering Committee report. Representatives from the civil rights (like the ACLU), disabled, immigrant and refugee rights, LGBT and Muslim communities had an expanded opportunity to influence the long-range plan for Nashville.

This moral highground claimed by the inclusive and “Nashville-for-all-of-us” proponents excludes anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

The Partnering Report describes Nashville as enlightened and focused on inclusion and “creative strides toward equity and inclusivity,” achievements credited to leftist hypocrites like Remziya Suleyman who started the Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO) which the ACLU promotes. Weinberg’s daughter, Hannah Cornfield, worked for Suleyman’s organization.

Also, in the Partnering Report, Suleyman describes how Muslims in Tennessee have been victims of Islamophobia. She perpetuates the falsehood that the state tried to restrict Muslims’ right to practice sharia law even while Mayor Dean showcases the flourishing sharia enclaves in Nashville.

What isn’t reported, is that Suleyman revealed before the report was issued, that “she never knew the concept of sharia.” Nor does she admit that the state law she falsely claims to have defeated, only criminalized terrorist’s acts; she was the one who equated the practice of sharia law, to terrorism. The law specifically excluded the “peaceful” practice of religion.

In the “means and ends” rule, Alinsksy wrote “[t]he most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means,” which easily aligns with the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya (permissible lying.) Leftists justify their deceit based on ends and means; Islamists simply use Quaranic doctrine.

The willful hypocrisy in the Partnering Report and the ACLU’s promotion of the Islamist organizations, is simply stunning. The Partnering Report emphasizes inclusivity. It highlights Nashville’s promotion of the LGBT community and cites as an example, that Metro Nashville was the first Tennessee city to prohibit gender or sexual orientation discrimination by the city government.

At the same time, that Weinberg gave Suleyman the ACLU’s “Bill of Rights” award, her friend Suleyman and her allies were publicly mocking the agenda of homosexuals who according to sharia law can be murdered.

A month after Suleyman tweeted out this picture, her board member, Kasar Abdullah, was invited to speak at Hedy’s high school Student Rights Conference. Kasar’s sister Jihan is pictured above.

Internationally popular Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi who helped Suleyman launch ACO, wrote that a homosexual act is a major sin against Allah. Even worse he says, is to support something like gay marriage, because that would be “kufr” – a sin so grave that you go to hell.

Of course the hypocrisy runs both ways since Islamists support the ACLU even though the ACLU promotes pre-marital sex, abortion, and gay marriage. CAIR-Michigan director sums up the political agenda this way:

dawud on gays

**************

The Partnering Report calls for a “mandate to ensure that all Nashvillians share equally in and have access to the benefits of its growth…” but without any requirement of individual initiative or effort. The report proposes creating a Public-Private Partnership whose mission is to “sustain and elevate Nashville as an exemplary open, just and inclusive community….” The Partnership plans to create internships to indoctrinate the next generation.

Alinsky wanted these same outcomes. His vision included the “People’s Organizations,” groups of radicals, led by one of their own members, but with an Alinsky- trained, professional organizer always controlling the leadership. Together, they would incite class warfare. The mass movement would ultimately transfer power from the “haves” so “the people” construct an ideal society.

In his book Master of Deceit, J.Edgar Hoover said that Alinsky’s use of the front man strategy was like what the Communist Party used as a way to achieve their objectives.

In the red-green alliance, the radical leftists abet Islamists to deconstruct the system of laws that even protects “useful leftist idiots.” It’s hard to know who is really using who.


Newsletter #174 – Tennessee ACLU: The Left’s Biggest Hypocrite (part 1 of 5)

“The Bill of Rights contains no grant of privilege for a group of people to destroy the Bill of Rights.”                           Eisenhower on Communism, October 1952.

The TN ACLU would like you to believe that it fights equally for everyone’s religious freedoms, civil liberties and Constitutional rights. It doesn’t.

The ACLU would like you to believe that it’s work promotes the ideals of democracy and social justice. It doesn’t do that either.

The ACLU would like you to believe that it is nonpartisan and advocates for individual rights. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

The ACLU’s work is about moving its socialist and communist DNA into the mainstream. It’s about the red-green alliance (the professional leftists and the Islamists), sharing a mutual goal of undermining the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization. It’s about rejecting the individual initiative that drives capitalism in favor of collectivist redistribution of resources. It’s about partnering with groups willing to abuse and disassemble our Constitutional liberties to advance the leftist agenda. It’s about disenfranchising “the Establishment.”

It’s about socially advantaged elites showing solidarity with the “underprivileged” – that is, until they retire at the end of the day and drive their pricey hybrid cars to their children’s private school, then on to their expensive homes in privileged neighborhoods.

Socialists + Communists = ACLU

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), was co-founded by Norman Thomas, William Foster and Roger Baldwin. These fathers of the new left, defining themselves as the “counterculture,” came to power in the 1960’s.

These men from Chicago came out of the Midwest labor movement – they were the progressives. They wanted to help the oppressed workers raise economic standards and working conditions.

Norman Thomas, a Presbyterian minister, was a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. He said,

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”

William Foster, a Marxist, was the National Chairman of the Communist Party USA from 1945 to 1957. He said,

“The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body of forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on.”

Roger Baldwin was an admirer of Stalin’s government. He said:

“I joined. I don’t regret being a part of the Communist tactic, which increased the effectiveness of a good cause. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the Communists wanted.”

Baldwin accepted dictatorship and suppression of rights were necessary to achieve socialism.

These men formed an organization intended to destroy our country, and created an Orewellian vocabulary to subvert mainstream American thought.

“Multiculturalism,” “human rights,” “tolerance” and “social justice” is the jargon of the ACLU’s leftist ideology. They fuel their moral narcissism on the backs of the underdog and use minority rights as an excuse to substitute a socialist solution which has been proven time and time again that it doesn’t work. The ideology is a master-slave relationship to keep the minority disenfranchised and emphasizes materialism as the answer to all our problems.

The ACLU and their fellow Alinsky travelers (discussed in later parts), have perfected the art of liberal bullying along with a proficiency in name-calling, propaganda and fact distortion to achieve their ultimate Communist goals.


Newsletter #122 – Raising a Capitalism-Benefitting Socialist in Nashville Who Also Hates Israel

If you are a young adult Jew, like Hannah Cornfield, daughter of TN-ACLU Director Hedy Weinberg, you augment your socialist-progressive credentials by promoting the anti-Israel Jewish Voice for Peace and support BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) against the State of Israel.

Grow up in the expensive Green Hills neighborhood. Attend an expensive private high school (2013 high school tuition $20,000 plus books). Graduate from an expensive private college. Protest the evils of capitalism. Serve as a Field Organizer with Obama’s Organizing for America. Use connections in D.C. to learn how to undermine voting integrity.

How else can you expect to understand what it’s like for the disenfranchised? Be sure not to disavow the unfair advantage of “white privilege” until after graduation. Then assuage your guilt by attacking capitalism and the very system that provided for you.

Jewish Voice For Peace (JVP), an extreme leftist group is ranked by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) among the top 10 “worst of the worst anti-Israel groups.” American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), are on the same list.

ADL characterizes groups likes JVP as “fixated with delegitimizing Israel” using campaigns like BDS.

BDS is the pro-Palestinian campaign that followed the 2000 intifada. The goal of BDS is to end Israel as a Jewish state. Period. The goal of BDS, is not peace. Its not justice. Its not democracy. The goal of BDS is to end the existence of the State of Israel.

JVP has been described as a “Jewish Voice for Hamas” because it advocates dialogue with Hamas and promotes what JVP believes are the “positive” aspects of Hamas despite the fact that Hamas’ charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Unless of course that is what draws JVP to Hamas?

Hannah might be surprised to learn that Hisham Sharabi, supporter of “radical Palestinian terror groups,” and founder of the Jerusalem Fund, understood how gullible progressive Jews are. He predicted that the intifada followed by a BDS campaign would be supported by “progressive Jewish forces in Israel and the United States….[any group] enlisted in the ‘progressive’ cause of the Palestinian Arabs – why not, anyone ‘progressive’ enough to embrace Hamas…is someone useful to Israel’s enemies.”

Cornfield is just the kind of Jew Sharabi liked. But maybe it’s Cornfield’s socialist morality that makes her support the Israel-hating JVP. After all, Israel could have been a socialist’s dream except for its successful capitalists.

It’s not the first time Jews were complicit with their demonizers. Judenrats in Germany didn’t legitimize Hitler any more than JVP legitimizes the goals of BDS.

*****

The milieu of Cornfield’s genealogy (which will examined in later newsletters), is steeped in Marxist/Communist/Leftist/Socialist associations and alliances. Hannah Cornfield is merely a product of these familial influences. But Cornfield also reflects the newer version of the red-green alliance between the socialist progressives (reds) and the Islamists (greens), which share the goal of destroying America and western civilization as we know it.


Newsletter #100 – Resolve to Tell the Truth in 2014

Deliberate omission is deceitful.  It is intended to evade telling the whole story, the truth.

Bob Smietana – Imagine if former Tennessean newspaper (non) reporter Bob Smietana would take off his apologist lenses before writing about the Islamist agenda.  Distorting facts to write a fiction of persecution is unethical and a disservice to the public.

Ad hominem should never substitute for objective, fact-based reporting.  As with anything Smietana writes on this topic, all Islamists and their supporters are virtuous; naysayers are contemptuous bigoted Islamophobes.

Even when Smietana writes about CAIR, he can’t bring himself to acknowledge the 2009 holding that “[t]he Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF [Holy Land Foundation], the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas”.

Hedy Weinberg – Imagine if the Director of the TN-ACLU had admitted in her 2011 testimony at the Tennessee legislature, that all the issues she alleged as problems had already been resolved in 2010 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled them Constitutionally sound.

Imagine if Weinberg advocated for the religious rights of Christian students the same as she does for Muslim students?  Take for example, the 2011 lawsuit filed against the Sumner County school district because of alleged Christian-centric activities. Part of the settlement agreement prohibited the Sumner County schools from taking field trips to religious sites. Except Weinberg didn’t object when Sumner County violated the settlement agreement this year by taking students to a Hindu temple and a mosque where they received free Qurans.

Her 2013 Students’ Rights Conference, with plenty of Islamist representation, was a reflection of Weinberg’s own conservative paranoia.  How ironic that a conference including LGBTQ Equality, also included speaker Kasar Abdullah whose sister Jihan, was out and about making fun of gays!

Remziya Suleyman – raises money for her organization American Center for Outreach (ACO) based on an embellished and distorted story about Islamist persecution in Tennessee.  The one documented truthful statement she has made is her admission to knowing nothing about Shariah law.  Of course that has not stopped her from demonizing anyone who objects to its insertion into American public life.  Without this platform, her fundraising would be flat.

It doesn’t appear that she ever addressed the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Memorandum before bringing CAIR’s Dawud Walid to train Muslim students.  What about her work with and support for CAIR?  Doesn’t it matter to her that CAIR is connected to Hamas?

Our wish for 2014: try telling the whole story;  honesty is good for the soul .
