In an account of Robert Spencer's speech at East Tennessee State University, I read that the Muslim activists on campus effectively ruined his speech and tried to discredit him before and during his talk. There were probably only 20 Muslims involved, but they were organized, and the counterjihad activists were not organized enough to defend or protect Spencer from this attack.
Spencer managed to deliver his talk, but to many in the audience, he appeared as one lone voice, isolated, hated, and without support. Why? Because the Muslims were organized and the defenders of freedom were not.
And the same principle is being demonstrated in many places in the free world: The Muslims are organized and the freedom-defenders are not. So Muslims have a disproportionate political influence. They create organizations that sue people. They create organizations to lobby politicians. They create organizations to give the press answers on Islamic questions. They are winning. Why?
But they are totally outnumbered. And it would not take much to prevent them from waging jihad by gaining concessions, or getting people fired for criticizing Islam, or helping Jihadis immigrate to our country to promote jihad in the mosques, or anything else we want to stop them from doing — we could easily do it if only we were organized. There is something missing and it is badly needed: United action.
Brigitte Gabriel has stepped into the gap and created ACT! For America. It is the most organized response to the jihad against the United States I have yet come across. I urge you to sign up for the AFA newsletter, to share the organization with all your friends, to join a local chapter in your area, and to read her two books. They are heading toward a million members and have hired a lobbyist. With a lobbyist representing a million members, politicians want to talk to that lobbyist. ACT! For America has their ear.
ACT! For America is for the United States. If you know of a similar organized group in your country, please post the organization's contact information in the comments of this section.
Let's organize. Whoever is the most organized is going to win.
