CAIR welcomes Tennessee university's decision to drop Anti-Muslim summit

Earlier this week, CAIR similarly welcomed a decision by Virginia's Amherst County Sheriff's Office to drop an event featuring Islamophobic conspiracy theorist Chris Gaubatz, who is also an employee of Guandolo's anti-Muslim hate group 'Understanding the Threat.' The FBI is currently investigating an image tweeted by Guandolo's hate group that purported to show the bombing of CAIR HQ in Washington, D.C. Guandolo, who has previously tweeted that CAIR needs to be obliterated, re-tweeted the bombing image on his personal account. Earlier this month, Guandolo tweeted that Islam is. & barbaric.

Minnesota's Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek has accused Guandolo of assaulting him during a national law enforcement conference earlier this year in Reno, Nev.

CAIR has in the past said Guandolo is putting local Muslim communities at risk by making the false claim that, Mosques/Islamic Centers are organizing for an armed confrontation with law enforcement, shoring up physical defenses where they see likely confrontation and increasing their pre-attack surveillance of churches and other targets.

CAIR's profile of Guandolo documents his belief that America is at war with Islam and that major Muslim organizations and mosques are preparing for combat. Guandolo also claims there is inaction on the part of the U.S. government to counter this threat because people inside the Trump White House have been co-opted by the bad guys.

Earlier this year, Guandolo excused a terror attack on a London mosque because people who are still sane are having to make very difficult decisions.

In 2016, a Texas college canceled a similar event. The college's decision came following a request by CAIR's Dallas-Fort Worth chapter.

In 2015, CAIR welcomed the withdrawal of an FBI representative from an event in Texas that was initially sponsored by the anti-Muslim hate group ACT! for America and featured Guandolo.

Virginia's Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy rescinded its approval of in-service training credits for state law enforcement scheduled to attend a training Guandolo was conducting in Culpeper, Va., after being made aware of his anti-Islam rhetoric.

A sheriff in Kansas decided not to partner with a citizens group sponsoring Guandolo training after being informed of his conspiracy theories. When a journalist at Kansas' Wichita Eagle covered the controversy, Guandolo accused the reporter of material support of terrorism.

CAIR welcomes Tennessee university’s decision to drop Anti-Muslim summit

 

Washington (UNA-OIC) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Wednesday welcomed a decision by a Tennessee university to drop an Islamophobic homeland security summit featuring John Guandolo, an infamous anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist who claims a former CIA director was a secret Muslim and that Muslim hotel managers, cabbies, and 7-11 workers seek to take over America.

CAIR, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, said Trevecca Nazarene University will no longer host the January 25 anti-Muslim event organized by Republican gubernatorial candidate Mae Beavers. The event would have featured three Islamophobic speakers, including Guandolo.

We welcome the decision by Trevecca Nazarene University to disassociate itself from this hate event featuring bigoted Islamophobic conspiracy theorists posing as national security experts, said CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw. We thank Tennessee's American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) for its vital work on this issue.

"By working with our allies here on the ground in Nashville, AMAC was able to prevent the anti-Muslim haters from having their event at a respected university like Trevecca. Nashville has become a welcoming city for all people and will continue to be so, said AMAC Program Manager Sabina Mohyuddin.
