Politicians, Muslims, and law enforcement are concerned about a 'backlash' against Muslims. Now is the time for a professional and legal backlash against the Muslim community and their leaders. Muslims know what materials are being taught in their mosques and they know many of the materials instruct young Muslims to kill innocent people who do not adhere to Sharia law.

And here's the version that is currently up on FSM's site:


Politicians, Muslims, and law enforcement are concerned about a 'backlash' against Muslims. Now is the time for a professional and legal backlash against the Muslim Brotherhood and their leaders. Muslims know what materials are being taught in their mosques and they know many of the materials instruct young Muslims to kill innocent people who do not adhere to Sharia law.

Even on its own terms, the new passage doesn't make a ton of sense, shifting from Muslims to Muslim Brotherhood and back to Muslims.

Several outlets picked up Gaubatz's comments after they were first reported by TPMmuckraker.

We've reached out to Family Security Matters to get their side of the story on this, but haven't yet heard back.

FSM says its mission is to "empower all Americans to become proactive defenders of our national security and community safety." Its board of advisors includes radio host Laura Ingraham, former Clinton CIA director Jim Woolsey, and GOP operative Barbara Comstock.

(Special thanks for catching the change goes to Summer Hararah, national security and civil rights program coordinator at the Asian Law Caucus.)

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
