'The Democrats Who Want You Sued For Reporting Terrorism'Topics: Immigration and Border Issues
Here's a list of the Democrats who voted against a provision in homeland security legislation that would protect citizens, who in good faith, report suspicious activity to police or law enforcement. In doing so, they "voted against lawsuit protection from Islamic grievance rackets like CAIR for reporting such things as noticing jihad videos being developed by jihadis at Circuit City." They claim to be strong on national security - yet they rejected allowing the average citizen tip authorities when they observe suspicious behavior or believe that someone may be engaged in terrorist activity.
These Islamoappeasers just gave Johnny Jihad a gift. Powerline puts this into perspective:
This is a good example of how Congress really works. The "John Doe" measure passed the House on a 304-121 vote, which means that many Democrats didn't want to go on record as opposing the measure. Instead, they killed it quietly in conference committee. So now Democrats in "swing" districts--those must be the ones where voters take seriously the risk of terrorist attack--can tell voters that they voted for the measure, and take no responsibility for the fact it never became law. This dodge is as old as the Republic.Other coverage: Michelle Malkin - John Doe vs. the moonbats (language warning)
It also shows the importance of party affiliation. If the Republicans still controlled Congress, a majority of conferees never would have voted to strip "John Doe" protection out of the bill.
