Rep. Dennis Kucinich, member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus (that would be ‘communist’) issued recognition and praise to a Muslim Brotherhood front group (CAIR).
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Ohio Chapter.
CAIR is a nationwide, nonprofit organization whose mission is to “enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.” For the past ten years, CAIR Ohio has played an instrumental role in helping to bridge the divides between Greater Cleveland’s diverse communities.
This, from the same man Ron Paul said he would consider for a cabinet position if elected president (gasp).
We found Kucinich’s closing stanza to be the most telling about his loyalties:
Mr. Speaker and colleagues, please join me in recognizing the Council on American-Islamic Relations Ohio Chapter for their tenth years of outstanding achievement. May their efforts to promote dialogue and create a more inclusive world continue to endure.
This would be like a congressman in 1938, praising the Nazis from the House floor.
