The day after it was announced ISIS executed British Aid Worker David Haines, sprang into action and issued an Action Alert…to censor experts scheduled to talk about Islamic extremism to law enforcement in Arizona.
And they are trying to censor one of the stars of my documentary The Caliphate. (Click for more info and to donate to help get the film finished.)

Sure, the tweet gets cut off but you can see where it’s going,
CAIR want readers to Take Action! against anti-Muslim hate, urging them call and write to…well, to stop a couple of people from speaking. So, they want censorship, right?
So, who do they want censored? From CAIR’s release:
On September 19th, the MCAO is hosting a training presentation on “Islamic extremism” with known Islamophobes. John Guandolo and Clare Lopez – two headlining speakers at this training event – are known for their well-documented anti-Muslim hate rhetoric. Arizona Muslim community leaders, along with the ACLU, wrote to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery highlighting concerns over allowing hate speakers to train our law enforcement and prosecutors.
Known Islamophobe Clare Lopez!
Well, that’s interesting to me since known Islamophobe Clare Lopez is one of the people featured in my upcoming film The Caliphate! You can see Clare featured in this trailer for the film.
And here’s an extended clip of Clare that seems especially appropriate: Clare talking about how information about Islamic extremism was purged by the Obama administration. Watch it all, it’s chilling.
