Investors Business Daily reports that John Conyers is "fighting bigotry."
The likely new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says he's just fighting bigotry in leading a Democrat jihad to deny law enforcement key terror—fighting tools. But he is in the pocket of Islamists.
John Conyers, son of a leftist Detroit union activist, represents the largest Arab population in the country. His district includes Dearborn, Mich., nicknamed "Dearbornistan" by locals fed up with cultural encroachment and terror fears from a steady influx of Mideast immigrants.
Conyers, who runs an Arabic version of his official Web site, does the bidding of these new constituents and the militant Islamist activists who feed off them. They want to kill the Patriot Act and prevent the FBI from profiling Muslim suspects in terror investigations. They also want to end the use of undisclosed evidence against suspected Arab terrorists in deportation proceedings.
And the 77—year—old Conyers has vowed to deliver those changes for them.
Recall that John Conyers held a mock impeachment hearing regarding the Iraq War which devolved into an anti—Semitic hate fest. He featured known anti—Semitic "witnesses" and "experts" that blamed American Jews and Israel for the war in Iraq. Simulataneously, anti—Semitic "literature" was being distributed at Democratic National Committee headquarters. Now Conyers promises to hold "real" impeachment hearings (though Speaker Pelosi may derail his desires). That would play well back home... and in the global Islamic community.
