Decision by Commission appears to be result of collusion with Library Director.

County attorney advises to have police at Commission meetings.

MassResistance parents continue to be relentless!

November 19, 2021
At the previous Commission meeting (before the testimony ban) this mother shows the Commissioners the federal report on preventing child sexual exploitation - and the local library is part of the problem. But the Commissioners weren't interested.

The County Commission in Campbell County, Wyoming, has voted to ban all public comments at its meetings. They did not hide their reason: The majority of the Commissioners do not want to hear any more complaints or criticism (from Wyoming MassResistance parents) about the lurid pornographic books in the public library children’s and teen’s sections.

The County Commission oversees the Library Board. There is evidence that this ban on public comments was enacted in collusion with the Library Director.

On October 15, the County Commission chairman issued an announcement that no public comments about the library books would be allowed at the Commission meetings. But then, apparently, the concept of banning a particular type of speech seemed problematic. So at their next meeting, on October 19, the Commission voted 3-2 to ban all public testimony at their meetings. Here is the arrogant announcement they posted after the vote..


Since July, parents in Gillette have been showing up regularly at County Commission meetings to read excerpts from some of the library books in the children’s and teen’s sections and make their outrage clear to the Commission members.

The library books in question tell young teenage boys and girls that “gay” sex is desirable and instruct them in graphic detail how to engage in a variety of perverted homosexual and lesbian sex acts. Some of the books overtly encourage girls to become lesbian. Another promotes the “how-to” for girls to “transition” to boys by having breast removal surgery, taking male hormones to grow facial hair, and using strap-on dildos.

The parents have demanded that the books be removed and that the perverse library staff members who put them there – and the local Library Board that has defended those books – be fired.

Holding signs in front of the library.
When people drove by the local Subway sandwich shop they saw this!

But instead, the County Commission has insisted that the parents go through a formal “challenge” process for each book. That is an insulting sham. The same library employees who brought the books into the library decide on the “challenge.” So far, there have been over 85 formal challenges filed by parents in the community with the library. The challenges have all been denied; not a single book has been removed from the library. (One book got moved to a different shelf.)

When people think of Wyoming, the word “conservative” comes to mind. The population of Campbell County is certainly conservative overall. But that’s not always reflected in the elected officials. Three of the County Commission members – Chairman Robert Maul, Rusty Bell, and Daniel Reardon – clearly have no problem with these filthy books and are openly contemptuous of those who do. The other two – Colleen Faber and Del Shelstad – hold “normal” values but unfortunately are out-voted on this.

How the comments ban came about

Wyoming MassResistance parents filed various Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for all relevant communication concerning the ban on public comments and the parents’ protests. What they got back was interesting – and shocking. Here are some of the events leading to the Commission’s decision to ban comments:

  • July 14. Commissioner Daniel Reardon’s visceral disgust for parents who opposed to the library pushing a transgender agenda on children was reflected in an email he sent to a local supporter. Reardon wrote, “It is a sad state of affairs where we regress back to the Matthew Shepard days because of ignorance and hate.”
  • Sept. 22 – Draft of “Joint Statement.” In response to a prior conversation with Chairman Robert Maul, Library Director Terri Leslie gave him a draft for a “joint statement” that would come from the library staff, Library Board, and County Commission on this issue. The statement bemoaned the constant flow of “comments about particular library books” by the public. It absurdly states that “reading is a constitutional right” - meaning that children have the “right” to access homosexual or transgender pornography at the library. It goes on to say that the library’s book challenge procedure is a “democratic process” and a “serious matter” that “requires due diligence and takes time” –  and that “community members must be patient.” To our knowledge, that statement was not released.
  • Oct. 5. Commissioner Rusty Bell suggested taking this a step further. He emailed Maul suggesting that the County Commission “continue to take public comment on everything except the public library at our public meetings.”
  • Oct. 6. Maul said he liked the idea and said he’d have Sean Brown, the Assistant County Attorney, come up with the wording for a formal statement.
  • Oct. 8. Sean Brown submitted wording for the statement to Maul.
  • Oct. 15. The Library Director was very pleased: The statement was made public and posted on social media. The County administrator emailed Library Director Terri Leslie to let her know of “the decision of the Chairman.” Leslie quickly answered, “Words cannot express how impressed I am with this decision.”
  • Oct. 15. Bring in police to control upset parents, says Asst. County Attorney. A member of the local parents' group emailed the Commission stating, “You are not autocrats, you are not fascists, you are not dictators, you are elected public servants … It is outrageous and reprehensible that you have forced this issue for so long in this community.” Obviously, the parents were not taking this casually and so intimidation was in order. Sean Brown then advised that the Commission should have a police presence at the next meeting. (Taking a cue from the DOJ and FBI?)
  • Oct. 16. Brown and Maul decided to eliminate public comment entirely, rather than try and defend the “limited comment” approach. And since they had the votes, they apparently decided to pass an official resolution on that at their next meeting.
  • Thus, at their Oct. 19 meeting, the Commission voted 3-2 to eliminate public comment entirely. But that has only increased the outrage on this issue.

Meanwhile, attacks against the parents by pro-LGBT activists (a small but very vocal and nasty group) praised the decision on the county’s Facebook page. They engaged in the usual vicious name-calling. They posted moronic statements, for example: Unless children have free access to the homosexual pornography, girls will get pregnant. But our people were not intimidated, and those comments were answered with a strong rebuttal!

Final thoughts

To totally squelch public comment before an elected board is an outrageous and arrogant action, to be sure. However, it is has served to bring out in the open that these three County Commissioners (1) fully approve of making this obscene material available to vulnerable children; (2) think they can insult the public’s intelligence with their phony “book challenge” process; and (3) fully support the demented public employees who choose these books.

This ban is having the opposite effect than was intended. Instead of being intimidated and cowed, the local Wyoming MassResistance parent group has been growing tremendously since the announcement. There will be a lot more to report on this battle!

Our successes depend on people like you.

APOSTATE Evangelist Franklin Graham develops pericarditis, undergoes heart surgery after aggressively pushing covid “vaccines” on Christians

Franklin Graham accepted the lie and spread it to his followers

(Natural News) Preacher and evangelist Franklin Graham was recently hospitalized for pericarditis, an inflammatory heart condition commonly associated with Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccination.”

Roughly eight months ago, Graham was pushing covid shots on his Facebook account, claiming that “if Jesus were physically walking the earth now,” he would “be an advocate for vaccines.”

“My answer [is] that based on the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, I would have to say – yes, I think Jesus Christ would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives,” Graham added in his post about his response when asked if Fauci Flu shots should be taken by Christians.

Months after stating this blasphemy, Graham, who presumably got jabbed in obedience to the government, had to undergo specialized heart surgery to deal with severe inflammation of the pericardium, which is a sac that surrounds the heart.

“I want people to know that COVID-19 can kill you,” Graham further shilled in months past, prior to when he developed this serious heart condition.

“But we have a vaccine out there that could possibly save your life. And if you wait, it could be too late.”

Graham previously gave an interview with Axios that appeared on HBO in which he pleaded with Christians to take the injections because that is supposedly what Jesus would have done.

Franklin Graham accepted the lie and spread it to his followers

The timing of Graham’s hospital admission on November 8 strongly suggests that he experienced a serious adverse reaction from getting injected himself.

According to reports, Graham was admitted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., where surgeons removed his pericardium.

“I want to thank all of you who have prayed for me and shared such encouraging words after my surgery,” Graham’s account tweeted two days after the surgery.

“It means more than you know. I thank God for the good reports. My doctors say I’m doing well and recovering normally.”

Pericarditis and myocarditis, two different yet similar forms of heart inflammation, are a common occurrence post-injection for the Chinese Virus. These two conditions are the primary reason why Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark have suspended the use of Moderna’s mRNA (messenger RNA) injection.

Taiwan has also suspended the second dose of Pfizer’s mRNA injection for teenagers due to the same problem: recipients continue to develop serious inflammatory heart conditions, which in some cases result in death.

Graham did not even mention the vaccines in his thank-you tweet, however. Instead, he chose to ignore the elephant in the room and pretend as though the injections had nothing to do with his new heart condition (assuming he got injected, of course).

Since he was pushing them so aggressively on Christians, Graham more than likely took the injections himself. This would explain why he developed heart inflammation seemingly out of the blue.

“How much did he get for supporting the lie?” asked one commenter at The Covid World blog. “Jesus and God provided healthy plants for our bodies and non-GMO foods … for starters … what a freak.”

“He is a freemason like his dad so it is expected,” responded another, referring to the late evangelist Billy Graham.

“Jesus raised people from the dead; he didn’t need biological weapons,” wrote another about how the real Jesus Christ would never have promoted these injections, which are clearly part of the Mark of the Beast system that is rapidly being unveiled.

“All vaccines have toxins in them and we have been lied to for decades about them. The drug companies inject people with aluminum, mercury, and other things that cause all kinds of problems through life and make a person a continual customer for the drug companies. If you follow Jesus, you wouldn’t recommend these or any vaccines.”

Bayer executive says covid mRNA shots are “gene therapy” falsely marketed as “vaccines”


SEE: https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-11-18-covid-mrna-shots-gene-therapy-falsely-marketed-vaccines.html;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) Stefan Oelrich, the president of Bayer’s pharmaceuticals division, admitted to international “experts” during a recent globalist health conference that both of the mRNA (messenger RNA) “vaccines” from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are not vaccines at all, but rather “cell and gene therapy” injections in disguise.

At the recent World Health Summit, which took place in Berlin from October 24-26, 6,000 attendees from 120 countries got to hear Oelrich say this. They also got to hear him explain that had these injections been marketed as what they actually are, most people probably would have rejected them.

“We are really taking that leap [to drive innovation] – us as a company, Bayer – in cell and gene therapies … ultimately the mRNA vaccines are an example for that cell and gene therapy, Oelrich said.

“I always like to say: if we had surveyed two years ago in the public – ‘would you be willing to take a gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?’ – we probably would have had a 95% refusal rate.”

The only reason that there has been any “success” at all as far as getting the masses to roll up their sleeves is because Big Pharma got away with lying to the public about what these things are and what they supposedly do.

“Our successes over these 18 months [the duration of the COVID ‘pandemic’] should embolden us to fully focus much more closely on access, innovation and collaboration to unleash health for all, especially as we enter, on top of everything else that is happening, a new era of science – a lot of people talk about the Bio Revolution in this context,” Oelrich continued to brag at the event.

Covid “vaccines” are reprogramming people’s bodies to become a new AI-driven slave race

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was also complicit, having changed the definition of “vaccine” to include mRNA injections.

The fake federal agency, which is really just a private corporation in disguise, decided that the old definition of vaccine was “problematic” for the purposes of purveying the plandemic lie. So the agency scrapped it entirely and came up with a whole new definition that suited the narrative.

This “Bio Revolution” to which Oelrich referred during his speech is described by the McKinsey Global Institute as “a confluence of advances in biological science and accelerating development of computing, automation, and artificial intelligence [that] is fueling a new wave of innovation.”

“This Bio Revolution could have significant impact on economies and our lives, from health and agriculture to consumer goods, and energy and materials,” McKinsey further says.

In other words, Big Pharma’s mRNA injections are laying the groundwork for a total transformation of humanity into an artificial intelligence-driven slave race controlled by whatever else the globalists have planned to install into people’s bodies via “vaccination.”

Oelrich further advocated for depopulating the planet by handing out more contraceptives to “an additional hundred million women” across Europe.

“We’ve invested 400 million this year into new plants that are dedicated to produce long-acting contraceptives for women in low-and-middle income countries,” he explained.

“Together with Bill and Melinda Gates, we’re working very closely on family planning initiatives.”

Continued covid shot administration combined with these other depopulation methods will eventually create a “sustainable” world, Oelrich says.

Oelrich is also a vocal proponent of the so-called “Great Reset” initiative, which the World Economic Forum (WEF) says is being driven in large part by the plandemic.

“To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions,” says WEF founder Klaus Schwab.

Epic Clown-Slap: DeSantis Signs Anti-Vaccine Mandate Package in Brandon, Fla.


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/kevindowneyjr/2021/11/18/epic-clown-slap-desantis-signs-anti-vaccine-mandate-package-in-brandon-fla-n1534174;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will take a “jab” (see what I did there?) at President Peepants when he signs an anti-vaccine mandate bill into law Thursday in the town of Brandon (see what he did there?).

The new law will require employers to allow vaccine exemptions over health, religion, pregnancy, and expected pregnancies in the future, as well as recovery from a previous case of the China flu.

Brandon, Fla. is roughly 13 miles east of Tampa.

DeSantis’s press secretary, Christina Pushaw, tweeted the following on Wednesday.

To be clear, @GovRonDeSantis is confident this legislation delivers on the promise: Floridians wont lose their jobs over vax mandates & will be protected from invasive discriminatory policies. I hear those of you who have doubts but believe you’ll be satisfied with implementation

“The significance of signing this legislation in Brandon, Florida, is not lost on the governor,” Pushaw quipped.

Florida state Rep. and “community organizer” Angie Nixon (I’ve never heard of her either), a Democrat, tweeted to all 6,702 of her followers her crankiness about the clown-slap DeSantis is giving Biden, suggesting that it’s all a bid to run for the White House.

DeSantis had something to say to his 1.3 million Twitter followers:

Great to meet with doctors and nurses about the Special Session. They have been working hard throughout the pandemic, many have recovered from COVID, and now their jobs are being threatened by COVID vax mandates.

DeSantis has been gaining nationwide popularity for standing up to Biden and his mandate clowns — so popular that people on “both sides of the aisle” are clamoring for a Ron DeSantis bobblehead.

DeSantis claims the rumors of his running for president are “nonsense” and, as he tweeted, “purely manufactured.”

An informal Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) presidential nominee poll from July showed that Trump had 70% of the votes compared to DeSantis’ 20%. Everyone else had less than 1%.

DeSantis and Trump have both resisted mask mandates in schools.

A Trump-DeSantis ticket, combined with what is clearly a tragic Biden presidency, could be disastrous for Democrats in 2024 and likely beyond.

Biden Moves to Destroy Religious-Based Childcare


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/chris-queen/2021/11/18/the-religious-liberty-violation-buried-in-build-back-better-n1534042;

To hear the Biden administration talk about it, there’s something for literally everybody in the 2,000-plus pages of the $1.8 trillion Build Back Better spending packages. After all, you’ll get tax breaks if you want to buy an electric bike, and there will be federal money available to you if you work as a doula, as my PJ Media colleague Rick Moran pointed out recently.

But there’s one group that won’t benefit from the largesse that Build Back Better offers if the bill passes as-is: child care facilities affiliated with religious institutions.

The New York Times is reporting that lobbyists are trying to talk Congress into stripping a provision from Build Back Better that would prevent religious preschools and child care centers from receiving their share of the gargantuan funds.

The provision at issue is a standard one in many federal laws, which would mandate that all providers comply with federal nondiscrimination statutes. Religious organizations, whose child care programs are currently exempt from some such laws, argue that it would effectively block many of their providers from participating, while civil rights advocates contend it is long past time for such institutions to comply.

Some of the faith groups are pressing lawmakers to scrap or modify the nondiscrimination language, asserting that it would essentially shut them out of the new federal program unless they made major changes to the way they operate. For instance, it could bar federal funds from going to programs that refused to hire a gay employee, gave preference to applicants of their faith or failed to renovate their facilities to accommodate disabled students.

According to the Bipartisan Policy Center, about 53% of families with children in preschool or daycare enroll their kids in religious-affiliated facilities, so you can see the problem here: for all that the Biden administration and congressional Democrats have promised to families of kids in childcare, over half won’t benefit one bit.

The NYT reports that while reliable Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) wants to include faith-based childcare centers in the legislation, House Democrats unsurprisingly want to leave out “any organization that discriminates.”

The Times details what’s at stake:

The bill would provide nearly $400 billion to help states build universal prekindergarten and affordable child care programs over six years. It is intended to ensure that the vast majority of families — those with four-person households earning up to $300,000 — spend no more than 7 percent of their income on child care. Families that earn under 75 percent of the state’s median income would pay nothing.

It explicitly includes religious organizations.

“Nothing in this section shall preclude the use of such certificates for sectarian child care services if freely chosen by the parent,” it says. “For the purposes of this section, child care certificates shall be considered federal financial assistance to the provider.”

Democrats in both legislative chambers are at loggerheads over including or excluding religious centers. But the fight also marks another point of contention between religious liberty and anti-discrimination laws. And naturally, many Democrats would opt for squashing religious liberty over offending or excluding a much smaller minority.

Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, addressed this provision in Build Back Better on his podcast on Wednesday. He stated that the attempt to exclude religious schools from receiving federal funds is part of what he calls the left’s “moral revolution.”

As we have seen, the setup in our entire cultural moment is for the moral revolution to win at the expense of religious liberty. And what that means, of course, is that the newly invented artificial rights of the sexual revolution are threatening to take the place, indeed to displace, the actual recognition and respect for religious liberty that is demanded by the United States Constitution.

Now when you look at this you would say, “Well, this can’t be entirely new, because we’re looking at the fact that the government has been involved in funding many of these programs before.” But as this [ New York Times] article makes clear, what has been hidden in the giant social spending bill proposed by the Biden administration is language that would change the rules.

According to Mohler, this is completely intentional, something the left has wanted all along.

The most substantive change might not have been recognized at first. It’s a change from funding these programs through block grants given to the states to changing the situation to direct funding by federal programs.

Now, here’s the big difference: there have been organizations, even ministries, Christian organizations, that had participated in those programs through funding by the block grants. That meant that they did not come directly under the non-discrimination provisions declared by the federal government.

But the change proposed here is not accidental; it’s very intentional. It’s an intentional effort, and it’s being demanded by some on the political left — an intentional effort to bring all of these programs under the moral revolution mandated by the federal government. And that means that religious institutions and religious organizations would not be able to operate these schools in a way consistent with their own beliefs, especially when it comes to the gender and sexual morality revolution the entire ray of issues most importantly summarized as LGBTQ.

He has a valid point. We’ve moved past “bake the cake, bigot” to “we’re going to withhold federal funds from you unless you play by all of our rules, bigot.”

The left has made the LGBTQ agenda a sacred cow, and as a result, they’ve doubled down on promoting it through culture, higher education, and K-12 schools. Now they want to use the power and purse strings of the federal government to ensure that they can push their sexual agenda to American preschoolers.

If First Amendment protected religious liberty gets in the way of that agenda, they will restrict it. This is one of many reasons why Build Back Better must be stopped.

Vax Mandate Could Put HALF of Border Patrol Agents Out of Work

Former acting ICE director Tom Homan appeared on Fox News recently to address the coming crisis of our already overwhelmed Border Patrol having its ranks seriously thinned by the Biden administration's vaccine mandate, which could put up to half of the Border agents out of a job. That can only make the collapse of our southern border unimaginably worse, but as Homan puts it: "This administration doesn't care about the border situation."

North Carolina: Anti-Israel ‘Progressive’ Muslim Congressional Candidate Hopes to Become New ‘Squad’ Member



SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/11/north-carolina-anti-israel-progressive-muslim-congressional-candidate-hopes-to-become-new-squad-member;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In 2015, the semi-demented Craig Hicks shot three of his neighbors because he believed they were using parking spaces to which they were not entitled. All three were Muslims. But he had a history of berating non-Muslims, too, over both parking spaces and making noise. His wife of seven years testified that he had never spoken ill of Muslims, never denounced them, never expressed hostility to the ideology of Islam, on social media or anywhere else. In fact, he was anti-Christian, and on his Facebook page wrote: “Knowing several dozen Muslims…I’d prefer them to most Christians.” The police said there was no evidence of a “hate crime.” The prosecutor could come up with no evidence of a “hate crime.” But none of that mattered, or matters, to North Carolina Congressional candidate Nida Allam.

Allam has been milking this non-existent hate crime for all it’s worth. Her website Nida For Congress includes this: “After three of her dear friends were murdered in 2015 — a case that drew national attention and triggered calls for stronger hate crime legislation — Nida Allam took to politics.”

She was spurred to run for office  because of the “hate crime” against “three of her dear friends.” Allam is not in the race to further her own well-being. Not at all. Personal aggrandizement, power, and money and fame — these hold no attractions for the self-effacing Nida Allam. She has girded her loins and entered the political arena in answer to a higher call.  She wants to fight against the “hate crimes” that she insists took her friends’ lives.

She has a video at her Nida For Congress website, about her decision to run. Here’s a transcript of part of it:

I was 21 years old when three of my best friends were killed.

Deah, Yusor, and Razan, brutally murdered in a hate crime that shook our community to the core. My lie was shattered but I knew I couldn’t let their legacy die. I looked for ways to fight against the  hate that took my friends  to make sure that no one would have to experience the pain that we [Muslims] endured , to make sure that we [Muslims] could live with dignity and without fear.

I never set out to make history, but sometimes life has different plans [inshallah fatalism]..  It wasn’t just racism and hate that we faced….my service was born out of tragedy…I’m ready to take my passion and my experience [one year as County Commissioner] to the halls of Congress. I’ve been told that I don’t belong, that I ought to wait my turn, but North Carolina can’t wait….I’m Nida Allam, and I’m running for Congress because Congress can’t wait.

Goodness me. So Congress “can’t wait” for the appearance of Nida Allam, who is just like Mighty Mouse, “Here I come,  to save the day/That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way.” She does have a whole list of what she intends to accomplish. Most impressive. Nida Allam has a jobs program because  “everyone deserves a good-paying job.” She wants to fight climate change, because “Black, brown, and working-class communities are on the front lines of this crisis.” She has a health care platform: “Everyone deserves comprehensive high-quality healthcare coverage that includes primary care, vision, hearing, dental, mental health care, reproductive health care, and more.” Sounds good to me. She has a housing plan: “Housing is a human right, and all of our neighbors deserve a safe and stable place to live.” “Education? “Every child deserves a quality public school education.” And so on and so mindlessly forth. Foreign policy? “We need to end our ‘so-called war on terror.'”

She never mentions Israel in her “Nida Allam For Congress” website. A curious but understandable admission – Nida may be a fool, but she’s “no fool,” given that this past May, amid escalating violence between Israel and Hamas, Allam participated in a pro-Palestinian rally where protestors chanted slogans such as “Israel is an apartheid state” and “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” the latter of which is correctly understood to be a call to eliminate Israel. In a live video she posted to her Facebook page on May 22, Allam appears to have been chanting that line along with her fellow protestors.

A week earlier, Allam attended a May 15 demonstration in downtown Raleigh marking the annual date of the ‘Nakba’ when Palestinians mark the war of 1948.

Following the May 15 rally, the Jewish Community Relations Council and the Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary released a statement identifying alleged instances of “antisemitic rhetoric” used by some demonstrators, including “posters combining Israeli and Nazi imagery.” One poster, the statement said, featured then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Benjamin “wearing a Hitler moustache,” while another declared, “Israel, Hitler would be proud of you.”

For her part, Allam denounced what she described as “ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and murder of children” in comments to a local newspaper reporter at the event.

Near the beginning of the May conflict, Allam released a statement of her own calling for a wholesale cessation of U.S. military aid to Israel, which is guaranteed in annual installments of $3.8 billion through a memorandum of understanding between the two countries. “We must end this negligent spending that is being used to oppress the Palestinian people,” Allam wrote, echoing the sentiments of a handful of far-left lawmakers in the House who have argued in favor of conditioning or eliminating aid to the Jewish state.

“I condemn all violence in this conflict and urge the United States to acknowledge our complacency in the continuing Israel-Palestine conflict,” Allam argued at the time.

In June 2018, after reports that the U.S. had quietly frozen aid to the Palestinian Authority, Allam weighed in with an incendiary Twitter comment. “This is the United States of Israel.”

Peter Riezes has reported on Nida Allam’s candidacy here:

Nida Allam, a 27-year-old progressive activist and Durham, North Carolina County Commissioner, announced last week that she will run for the Congressional seat of retiring Rep. David Price (D-NC).

I first researched Allam during her 2019 campaign for County Commissioner, due to her anti-Israel positions. What I found was a history of abhorrent statements that extended far beyond Israel.

In 2018, Allam tweeted, “This is the United States of Israel,” which is consistent with centuries-old antisemitic propaganda that Jews seek to dominate the world.

In 2013, Allam tweeted, “F*** the police,” and she has made many offensive and hateful posts over the years.

I spoke with award-winning Durham columnist and Black minister, Carl W. Kenney II, who told me that Allam’s use of the N-word in a 2014 tweet is “appalling.”

When asked if it matters that Allam’s tweet is from 2014, Kenney responded:

I think it speaks to character issues. I think it speaks to a lack of sensitivity. We have a person who has a desire to run for US Congress at 27…What has she done in building relationships with the Black community to help soothe the pain connected to making that type of statement? … I’m not comfortable that she’s learned a lesson.

When asked about Allam’s “F*** the police” tweet, Kenney told me that while he understands the anger, “In Durham, we’re not one to say ‘f*** the police.’ We want to say we want to work with the police.”

Allam was at the time pressuring the Durham police to end their training arrangement with the Israeli police, falsely claiming that such training “militarized” the Durham Police Force.

“I met with Kenney via Zoom and asked if it is acceptable that I — someone who is not Black — cite Allam’s N-word tweet in this column as a warning to the public. Kenney responded, “You have an obligation to do that. … For people to fully understand what we are talking about, they need to have it in its original form.”

Here’s Allam’s unseemly tweet: “Kid in front of me is in a group text called “United N*gga Network.’ Where do I apply?”

In 2019, Allam tweeted a picture of herself standing with a Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) sign. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes JVP as “a radical anti-Israel activist group that advocates for a complete economic, cultural and academic boycott of the state of Israel.”…

Allam has repeatedly promoted her close ties with noted antisemite Linda Sarsour, calling Sarsour “my shero, role-model, mentor, and so much more.”

Sarsour has been widely criticized for advocating for the destruction of Israel via the BDS movement and other means, saying “Nothing is creepier than Zionism,” and advising Muslims not to “humanize” Israelis.

Earlier this year, Black constituents and politicians strongly criticized Allam and two other Durham commissioners for what was viewed by many as racially divisive policies.

“There is a sense in the Black community that she [Allam] is among the politicians here who doesn’t really talk to Black people” Kenny [sic] told me. “They have an idea of what is best for Black people without actually engaging in the conversation. That’s a problem.”

On his widely read blog, Kenney warns: “If Allam has her way, the race for Congress will not be determined by local Black voters. It will be won by the support of the national media and progressive politicians desirous of an addition to The Squad — joining Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).”…

Just hours after Allam announced her run for Congress, Ilhan Omar tweeted, “Let’s go Nida!”; Keith Ellison tweeted, “Great Candidate”; and Linda Sarsour retweeted Allam’s campaign announcement….

Nida Allam’s campaign received $115,000 in donations just the first day it opened. Muslims from all over the country sent money, eager to add one more anti-Israel voice to Congress,  provide another potential collaborator of Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, another member of the Squad. No doubt CAIR is out fundraising for her, raising money among Muslims across the country who are relentlessly focused on increasing Muslim power in Washington. This would-be squadette needs to be stopped in her tracks, or headed off at the pass, preferably by an African-American candidate who will make good use of Allam’s “United N*gga Network” tweet,  and of her palpable want of interest, according to the columnist and black minister Carl Kenney II, in African-Americans.

According to her website, the essence of Nida Allam is that she is “working for a brighter future.” What a fantastic idea. Really, who could disagree?
