DOJ refuses to promise to protect free speech 3

This is from the PJ Tatler:

A stunning exchange took place today when Assistant AG Tom Perez of the DOJ Civil Rights Division refused to commit to the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution that it would never advance a law criminalizing the right to criticize any religion.

The non-commital answer by Perez was in response to a question asked by Rep. Trent Frank (R-AZ): “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”

Here’s the exchange:

The Muslim Brotherhood has deeply infiltrated the Obama administration, and its influence could not be more glaringly obvious.

    Amazing how hard it is for these people to answer simple yes or no questions. 
    Of course, when you’re entire job involves lying to cover up a dubious agenda, the simplest answers do present complicated problems.

    It seems to me we are caught in a cross fire and there is no escape. We have the Christians on the far right and the liberals supporting Islam on the left. Both are working as hard as they can to dismantle the Constitution and turn this country into an economic disaster or a theocracy. It is indeed very disheartening. No matter who gets elected I am not optimistic about the country’s future. To quote the great American philosopher Walt Kelly (aka Pogo), “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

      Well, you can look at it like this – it’s like the choice between drugs and religion.  Both are means of escapism, but since the former can kill you, the latter is a better choice.  It may enslave you mentally, but at least it is possible to free yourself of it eventually through the use of reason.
      The leftists will kill this country economically and it’ll be over.  If the religious right wins, at least we’ll survive economically, and have a chance of talking some sense into them over separation of church and state later.
