Influential 'Center for America Organization' names those behind hate-fear mongering of Muslims in Americana;
A report compiled by the Center for American Progress stated that over $42 million dollars has been paid out to spread hate-fear of Muslims in America. Moving in more than 23 states, the in-depth investigation revealed that the politicians who are making this happen are Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Peter King (R-NY) and Allen West (R-FL)---successful in tarring Islams and all Muslims with extreme distortions and half-truths throughout the country.
Hate money is flowing like water through organizations
like the Eagle Forum, the American Family Association, Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT! For America, David Horowitz’s Freedom Center, and Pam Geller’s Stop Islamization of America, according to page seven of the American Progress Organization report.
Going even further, Raw Story reports that “Donors Capital Fund” and “Richard Scaife Foundations” have received more than half of the $42 million dollars. According to Dr. Steve of the Daily Kos, the Donors Capital Fund has paid out over $20 million in dollars for the same purpose they are receiving it, with the board of directors, officers and affiliations showing how extremist the entire right wing can be.
"It is of course, as always, the same interlocking circle of the same folks---who have given us 30 plus years of deregulation, cuts in taxes for the rich, rise in taxes for the working and middle class, income stagnation, rising inequality---who are of course also behind the bread and circuses of Islamphobia fear mongering.”
Part of the money also went to individuals like David Horowitz and Pamela Gellar, in order to pass off negative information as “news” to Fox News, Newt Gingrich and Allen West. Yet a little more than two hours ago, David Horowitz (an American conservative writer and policy advocate whose both parents were Secular Jews and of the American Communist Party) was on front-page news today on Newsmax, spewing out, “David Horowitz: Obama ‘Systematically Destroying Our Liberties.’”
