Quoted: Hussein Rashid on ‘Hate Comes To Orange County’

There is no excuse for this behavior. It is pure, unbridled bigotry. There is no way to explain it away, and muddying the waters by saying there was anti-Semitic speaker there does not make it OK to call charity “terrorism,” or to terrorize young children.

The video also shows elected representatives speaking about a Muslim event—although it’s unclear if it is the same event. However, the point of these politicians is made succinctly by Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly, who said, “I know quite a few Marines who would be happy to help these terrorists to a, uh, early meeting in paradise.”

This is an elected representative presumably telling some of her constituents that US Marines should kill some of her other constituents—US citizens. For her, the people at the meeting were not human, were not citizens, were not constituents, but were “terrorists,” tried and convicted by her; and that is enough for her to call on the Marine Corps to exterminate them.

    What is telling is at moment 3:48, the speaker says “Our children have been told that every idea is “white”…….” He meant to say right, but said what he really wants to believe.
    These folks are just a sheet and a noose away from being a lynch mob. Disgusting!

    Completely disgusting, disturbing and outrageous. Even more disturbing that a Jewish rabbi was part of the Hate rally. I expected better from a minority leading figure who would understand the harmful effects of racism (ie: anti-Semitism). Goes to show you that kyriarchy is very much real and alive.
