The Million Muslim March On 9/11

By Alan Caruba ~ There is more than a little irony that September 11th is designated Patriot Day when the Obama administration has made it clear what it really thinks of patriots. It is astonishing and frightening how many Americans have been identified as “potential terrorists” or “extremists” by various elements of the government. Michael […]
