Coach FIRED after Open Letter to Obama Challenging Islam’s Role in America’s Founding
President Obama has on several occasions asserted that Islam had an integral role in America’s founding. We have already reported on this at The Federalist Papers and have documented the case that such assertions are patently false.
Now a lacrosse coach in Conway, Maine has been fired for making the same case.
Scott Lees was the coach of the Fryeburg Academy’s boy’s lacrosse team, until he dared to disagree with President Obama in a Facebook post.
The Conway Daily Sun reports that Lees posted an open letter to the president in the form of a Facebook post.
In that letter the author asks whether anyone had ever seen a Muslim hospital or heard a Muslim orchestra. The letter points out that Muslims “are still the largest traffickers in human slavery,” and that they were allied with Adolf Hitler.
The points may not be political correct or culturally sensitive, but that doesn’t make them untrue. They were also posted to Facebook, which is often a medium used for open political discussion and debate.
But the most remarkable part of this story is that Lees claims he didn’t even write the letter. He had received the letter in an email from a friend and posted it for the purposes of discussion. He never envisioned it would cost him his job. Two days later, he was forced to resign.
“I’ve never been fired in my life,” said Lees. “I’ve been coaching kids since 1992.”
Have you seen Muslims shak[ing] hands with Muslim Girl Scouts?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?
Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life????
The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY???
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England? No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present. There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?
Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazis in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.
No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America…
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major, a doctor and a psychiatrist, who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America!
P.S. Now, you can add the Boston Marathon bombings, too…
As for the post itself, Lees says it wasn’t very popular. Only one person commented on it. Why the school chose to fire him over something barely anyone saw is a mystery. But it demonstrates the clear bias of the liberal left towards anyone who doesn’t hold their same cultural views or dares to criticize the president.
