CAIR demands apology from Scott Walker for so-called ‘anti-Muslim’ remarks

scott-walker-topperThe Muslim propagandists at the Council on American-Islamic Relations are trying to stir up trouble for Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker over remarks he made about radical Islam.

But it looks like he won’t be apologizing anytime soon.

CAIR tweeted:

This was in response to an argument the Wisconsin governor made while stumping in New Hampshire on Friday.

CAIR released a statement dated Aug. 21.


“These types of inaccurate statements reflect a lack of understanding of Islam and Muslims that is, frankly, not presidential,”  CAIR Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw said in the statement. “If Mr. Walker believes only a ‘handful’ of Muslims are moderate or reasonable, then he is ignoring the very clear reality that violent extremists murder more Muslims than they do people of any other faith.”

When no response came from the candidate, CAIR continued to press:

CAIR even demanded that the Republican Party apologize:

Walker’s remarks were probably spurred by six years of Obama administration policy to distance itself from the term “radical Islam.”

“If you’re fighting a war, you’ve got to identify who the enemy is loud and clear,” Walker said, according to The Nation.

“We’ve said it repeatedly: It’s radical Islamic terrorism,” he continued.

“It is a war against not only America and Israel, it’s a war against Christians, it’s a war against Jews, it’s a war against even the handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don’t share the radical beliefs that these radical Islamic terrorists have.”

That was on Friday, the same day CAIR pounced on Walker.

Walker’s personal Twitter feed, @ScottWalker, is full of campaign events — but noticeably void of apologies.

His governor’s account, @GovWalker, is equally silent.

Looks like CAIR won’t get that apology.

Here’s a short clip of Walker’s remarks.
