Stakelbeck Condemns Obama for Defending Right to Build Mosques; Fears Muslim ‘Infiltration’ of the Bible Belt

SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Wednesday, 5/15/2013 1:50 pm

Next time Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent Erick Stakelbeck talks about religious liberty, just remember that he doesn’t seem to extend that freedom to Muslims. During a conference call with the group Tea Party Unity, Stakelbeck attacked the Obama administration for having “literally” intervened in cases to defend the construction of mosques.

Stakelbeck said he is outraged that the Obama administration is trying to stop residents from blocking the construction of mosques because how dare the Justice Department defend the First Amendment!

He was also livid that Muslims may want to build “a $5 million mega-mosque,” just as we are sure he is angry that a Southern Baptist congregation in Dallas constructed a $130 million megachurch.

But then again, what do you expect from a sports reporter-turned-terrorism “expert”who has championed anti-Muslim activists like “mosque buster” Gavin Boby?

Caller: How is it we can get these facilities, because I’m not going to call it a church or a religion, how can we get them shut down?

Stakelbeck: Well look under this administration, good luck, because I’m just working on a chapter in my new book about how this administration when locals, in places like Murfreesboro, Tennessee, when local residents are up in arms about a mosque being built, the Obama Department of Justice literally intervenes, files amicus briefs in support of the mosque, we’ve seen this time and time again. Here’s a statistic for you, folks, in the year 2001 there were 1,200 mosques in America; now, just twelve years later after 9/11, that number has doubled to over 2,000 mosques, that’s a 74 percent increase since 9/11 alone, that is astounding and it is not a coincidence. Under the Obama administration the floodgates are open even more; they are literally intervening in these mosque cases around the country, in small towns with very small Muslim populations. I’m sorry, if you have a 200-strong Muslim population, why do you need a $5 million mega-mosque? And where is the money coming from? Look no further than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. So getting mosques shut down in this era, in the age of Obama? Good luck. What you’re going to see is more mosques built.

Stakelbeck told another caller that “there is a concerted effort by Islamists to infiltrate the very heartland of American society,” particularly the Bible Belt.

Just to be clear, Muslims represent just 1% of the population of Tennessee and less than 0.5% in other Bible Belt states like Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Arkansas.

But maybe they’re all just hiding in national parks….

Caller: We are seeing so much Saudi in middle Tennessee, I mean they have the best health care in the Saudi embassy, we have classes at the university, so we are just seeing a major, major influx of Saudi nationals here in middle Tennessee.

Stakelbeck: Folks, it’s not a coincidence. Middle Tennessee is the buckle of the Bible Belt. This is not just in New York City, Boston, Chicago, LA, traditional gateway cities for immigrants, anymore; there is a concerted effort by Islamists to infiltrate the very heartland of American society. I write about this in my book “The Terrorist Next Door,” I call it “Southern Inhospitality,” and that’s what we’re seeing, and you’re seeing it in a major way in that Nashville area where you have tens of thousands of Muslim immigrants in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville.


  1. Stop the Europeanization of America! Defend freedom of worship!

  2. wtf

  3. Oh for heaven’s sake. Muslims have been here for about as long as there has been a USA to come to. The biggest concentration of Muslims outside of the Middle East used to be Cedar Rapids Iowa. Did anything bad ever happen in Cedar Rapids? Nope. Let us get over ourselves.

  4. Apparently he thinks religious freedom is well and good as long as it’s not extended to any other religions.

  5. he is pathetic!

  6. Freedom for all or none!

  7. The scary thing isn’t so much that they’re against the 1st amendment, but their belief that mosques are somehow legally-operated terrorist training centers, because it’s a belief that persists despite being extremely implausible and easily disprovable, and it’s one inflammatory enough to lead to violence.

    They have to willfully ignore reality, or interpret it as it’s exact opposite, to say the things they say. Terrorism simply doesn’t and has never come from US mosques. If anything, mosques are too cowed by the fear of accusation to do so much as criticize government corruption, discuss relevant politics, or collect for charities.

  8. unbelievable……

  9. I guess he would be happy to have the Catholics out, too? And, the Jews? If fact, ALL non-Protestant Evangelical Christians?

  10. Hypocrites abound.

  11. Drop the fuck dead, Mr Stakelbeck.

  12. Exactly.

  13. This is why people spouting ideas like this are dangerous, because it is an incitement to racial violence of the sort the NSDAP used against so-called “untermensch” in Germany.

  14. LOL! Richard Chetwynd

  15. Jerk!

  16. labyrinth of lies. I condemn obama for continuing a death cult foreign policy. His puppet masters are of dajjal

  17. We really need to break this country up into “the ignorant” and “the Northeast”.

  18. People like this are one of the reasons for the existence of terrorism and unrest today.

  19. Middle Tennessee, “the buckle of the Bible Belt,” is the very heartland of American society? God help us all.

  20. There are records of Muslims migrating to the US in 1840. Muslims fought in the Civil War. Most of the slaves they brought from Africa were Muslim and they forced them to convert to Christianity and change their names!

  21. Another one with Pamela Geller’s syndrome, let’s see how far they go with their pathetic lies.

  22. I still see people here with “Protect religious freedom” signs in their yards, and you know very well that it doesn’t include ANY religion outside of the one they belong to!

  23. This myth of the Christian minority is absolutely toxic.

  24. I’m an agnostic Palestinian Arab from a Palestinian Greek Orthodox Christian family, and want to tell My Muslim and Arab brothers and sisters need to tell American right wing Protestant( fake Christians) to go fuck themselves along with their Zionist masters. Protestants are a joke they’re not true Christians. Protestants Zionist are a disgrace to true eastern Orthodox Christianity. Don’t fear these neanderthals. Racist right wing republicans and fox news watchers are insecure losers.

  25. What a creep.

  26. ZOMG THEY ARE TAKING OVER!!! I hope so, I love middle eastern food, and it’s healthier than deep fried tomatoes and bacon

  27. If Obama wanted to defend peoples’ rights to build churches, betcha this guy wouldn’t have a problem.

Have your say!
