CAIR-MN Calls For School To Drop Event For ‘Anti-Muslim’ Speaker

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Muslim advocacy group is calling for a northern Minnesota high school to cancel an event with a speaker whom they describe as an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) says that John Guandolo should no longer be invited to speak at Bagley High School because his message is one that shouldn’t be highlighted on a taxpayer-funded platform.

“The perception that the high school may be endorsing Guandolo’s anti-Muslim bigotry could lead to a hostile learning environment for Muslim and other minority students,” said Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of CAIR-MN, in a statement.

Guandolo, a former FBI agent, is the founder of UnderstandingtheThreat.com. According to descriptions his books, he believes that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to overthrow the American government and that some high ranking U.S. officials are secret Muslims and the tools of Middle Eastern governments and organizations.

CAIR-MN suggests that the high school tell Guandolo to find a private venue for his talk.

The school’s superintendent could not be reached Tuesday for comment. Bagley is about 250 miles north of the Twin Cities.

    When your enemy controls what you can say and not say about them they have already won.

      Exactly. It seems we aren’t in the USA, any more, according to the news site.

  2. bulldog says:

    I wonder when the ant-Christian speaker is scheduled?

    This doesn’t belong in a public school!

      Do you posts any comments that are completely idiotic?

        I think I know what you were trying to say, but you should ask mommy troll to proofread your comments before you hit the “Post Comment” button.

          Oh butt hurt liberal bulldog.

          How did you survive the abortion?

    2. S Strand says:

      All the pro muslim rhetoric on this news site, I consider Anti-Christian. I have lived long enogh to witness it, and I guarantee you, that you haven’t.

        You’d have to be pretty old to have been around longer or experienced more than I have, and whether you approve of this website or not, it’s not taxpayer funded. The high school in question is a public school, no speaker with a religious agenda of any kind should be invited to speak there.

        If the school chose to invite experts on all religions to speak to the history of each, that would be different, that’s not what they’re doing. So regardless of what you think about CAIR, in this case they are right.

    Only Muslim’s have freedom of speech in CAIR’s America? It’s still legal to oppose Islam believe it or not. Why is CAIR trying to take our rights away? Because CAIR is a terrorist-front organization.

  4. Jim says:

    They( Muslims) are only outspoken when it suits them,

  5. Concerned about this says:

    Freedom of F N speech… stop bombing and people will stop being anti-muslim.

    Yet another example of why “Home Rule” is not the best way to run schools.

    I call BS! My grandparents lived 1 mile south of the Red Lake Reservation in Gonvick, and the only “minorities” at that time happened to be the indigenous Indians on the Res. Unless there has been an infestation of Muslims recently, I can’t see any reason this would be a hostile learning experience. Correct me if I am wrong but I think the Tribe has their own schools on the Res. More disinformation and propaganda from CAIR in my opinion.

    CAIR is associated with every terrorist organization in the Middle East, yet they THRIVE here in the good old US of A under President Obama and Secretaries of state Clinton and Kerry.

    Let the guy speak. He is a conspiracy theorist. He can probably tell stories about Sasquatch, the plot to vaccinate republican kids with the aids virus, and Trumps plans to enter a seminary.
