Army Officer Sacked for Teaching About Islam

Hat tip to The Blaze.

The message is obvious - note that Islamic teachings incite war and can be fairly easily interpreted to justify terrorist acts, and your career will be ruined.

"A highly decorated Army lieutenant colonel says he was essentially blacklisted by his superiors after more than 50 Muslim groups complained about a course he taught on radical Islam. Now he is fighting to get his career back.

As previously reported by TheBlaze, Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a West Point graduate and decorated combat veteran, was an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University, where he was reportedly popular among students and fellow staff members, reports.

That all changed when Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, slammed Dooley and his “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” course during a Pentagon press conference in May, calling his teachings unprofessional and “against our values."

He was later given a negative Officer Evaluation Report (OER), which was unusual given the fact that Dooley had passed the evaluations with flying colors the previous five years. Dooley says a bad OER is like being blacklisted in military circles."

The influence of Islamic groups such as CAIR that seek to suppress any honest discussion about Islam and thereby keep the West ignorant of the threat it poses is very real and very effective.

Lt. Col. Dooley is just one example of what is going on before our eyes; throughout the West, those who decide what is allowed and what is prohibited (The Left) have set the rules. The Pentagon, Justice Department, Homeland Security, and the media are all on board with this censorship. 

If an anyone with an official position notes the central part that warfare and other acts of violence has in Islam, his or her career will either be ended outright or, in the case of Lt. Col. Dooley, effectively wrecked by a an official elevation that rates the target poorly.

Please read the article linked at top. The only way that this totalitarian censorship will stop is if people stand in support of the brave individuals who put the truth before their careers. Legislators need to be contacted and made aware that the people know what is going on.
