Donors to Congressman who wants U.S. schools to be like Muslim madrassas

André Carson (l) with wife and the POS

Remember André Carson, the Congressman who wants U.S. schools to be modeled after madrassas? A madrassa or madrasah is a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque.
Steve Peacock reports for WND, July 21, 2012, that according to Federal Election Commission quarterly filings, thanks to large campaign donations, Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) appears well-positioned, at least financially, to fend off Republican challenger Carlos May in November.
After a $206,000 infusion during the most recent period ending June 30, Carson’s total receipts for the 2011-2012 election cycle jumped to $778,000. Even with $531,000 in reported expenditures, Carson still has $490,000 in campaign cash remaining.
So who are the donors to Carson’s political campaign? They include:

U.S. Marshal Kerry Forestal

  1. An Obama appointee, Kerry J. Forestal, whom the POS appointed in 2010 to be U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Indiana. The following are Forestal’s known political donations to Carson:
  • $1,000 to Andre Carson for Congress, on Feb. 4, 2008. Carson defeated Republican John Elrod one month later in a special election to become one of the only two Muslims serving in Congress at the time.
  • $1,000 on June 30, 2009.
  • $1,000 on May 7, 2012.
  • More than financial contributions to Carson, Forestal and two other high ranking sheriff department officials also appeared in full uniform in political ads for Andre Carson. Forestal also hosted a fundraiser on St. Patrick’s Day with Carson.
  1. Then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, who donated $2,000 in May 2008.
  2. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who donated $2,000 in February 2008.
  3. The Council of American Islamic Relations California PAC gave Carson $5,000 in August 2008.
  4. The Arab American Leadership Council PAC donated $2,000 in October 2008.
  5. Other group donors to Andre Carson in 2008 included the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Fund for Children and Public Education ($10,000, followed by $4,000 in 2010, and $1,000 in 2011), NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC ($6,000), and Moveon.Org PAC ($5,000).
  6. Unions, such as American Federation of State County & Municipal Employees People donated $28,000 over the past five years, and the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education, which donated $27,500 during that time.
  7. Hundreds of thousands of dollars combined have come to Carson from financial and corporate special interests such as the General Dynamics Corporation PAC, General Electric Company PAC, Duke Energy Corporation PAC, Bank of America Corporation Federal PAC, and dozens of others.

How could General Dynamics not know the nightmare Carson brings? I’m not surprised by GE because their CEO is an Obama stooge. And all the others are the same. But GD develops some of our most advanced weapons systems. This is very bad news.

We are currently at war with the camel-washers, and probably will be for a very long time to come – at least until (not to mention if) the Civilized World finally decides to win it once-and-for-all.
As far as I am concerned, anyone supporting this camel-flea infested traitor is committing treason against our country.

I don’t care how much money they spend on trying to get elected…that is NOT what puts them in office. It’s STUPID people, just like the ones that shoved Odumbo down our throats. I suggest deporting ALL the idiots in America, along with Odumbo and his clan back to Kenya. Let them put up with them. And once they’re gone…LOCK on the borders!!!

That Marshall Forestal looks like a great oracle of intellect, based on his facial expression. (NOT!). Nice crossed eyes and pig nose.

Every religion has the right to have schools based on that religion. I personally don’t support any of them, but I support the RIGHT for them to exist, as long as they teach the 3 R’s to an acceptable minimum, and prepare children for existence in mainstream America. Public education should look at ALL educational models, religious and secular, to look for ways to improve student learning and college preparedness. Just as an atheist finds wisdom in the Bible and the Quran, our schools shouldn’t turn down any opportunity to improve. No public school should ever promote ANY religious belief.… Read more »
