I received this email from ACT! for America:
There are certain members of the U.S. Congress who just “get it.” Not only do they “get it,” but more importantly, they are prepared to put actions behind their words in the interest of national security. As I’ve mentioned in the past, a lot of these Members happen to be freshmen in the 112th Congress—legislators who literally “hit the ground running.” And one of them is from your state of Illinois.
Recently, Congressman Joe Walsh (R-8th District) spoke before a group of his constituents. During his comments, he noted how our nation cannot afford to be politically correct when it comes to radical Islam—and he cited the shootings at Ft. Hood as one example. Click HERE to see the Congressman’s official statement about this matter. As usual, CAIR was quick to hold a news conference about Mr. Walsh’s comments, calling names like “racist” and “bigot.” The tune never changes.
Thankfully, Mr. Walsh has no problem being clear about the threat of radical Islam to our nation, nor about how dangerous it is when our government fears addressing this threat head-on. As a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, the Congressman has been working hard during the 112th Congress to see that concrete steps are taken to protect U.S. citizens from all threats to our national security—including radical Islam.
My hope is that you’ll take a moment today to thank Congressman Walsh for speaking out about this very important issue. It’s critical that both he and his staff understand the level of support that is behind him when he speaks up about radical Islam.
