Controversial Muslim activist Rose Hamid was escorted from the Trump rally in South Carolina on Friday after putting on a yellow Holocaust star and making a scene.
Hamid believes Muslims in America are treated just like Jews in Nazi Germany.
CNN spoke with Hamid before and after her demonstration at the rally.
Rose Hamid is a well known Sharia activist who made headlines after she refused to remove her hijab as a stewardess at US Airways. The airlines refused to allow Mrs. Hamid to continue working as a flight attendant because, the company said, her head scarf violated the company’s rules on uniforms.
Governor John Kasich today lectured Trump supporters for booing Rose Hamid’s political stunt.
“I saw a crowd booing this woman who was being escorted. That’s not the party of Jack Kemp. I mean, we are people that can tolerate differences.”
And, he wonders why he’s losing?
A British television network went undercover for a year among female supporters of the Islamic State group in London and reportedly found British mothers preaching that Allah will destroy Western militaries, that the “man-made” laws of Britain are to be rejected and that Muslims must travel to Syria to join the jihadist group.
In the program, “ISIS: The British Women Supporters Unveiled,” Britain’s Channel 4 reported that its investigation spanned the past year until about four weeks before the Paris attacks, which killed 129 people.
The undercover reporter, dressed in full Islamic garb, including covering her face, penetrated the closely guarded group by first setting up fake social media accounts that she used to communicate with three leading female Islamic State supporters in the U.K. who go by the names Umm Usmaan, Umm Saalihah, and Umm L, whom Channel 4 said it could not name for legal reasons.
The reporter, who presented herself as a woman named “Aisha,” said she is a Muslim who grew up in London and was willing to undertake personal risk in order to discover what has motivated an estimated 700 British Muslims to travel to Syria to fight for the jihadist group – among them 100 girls.
“Aisha” attended secret lectures in London, during which women preached the evils of the U.K. and democracy and described Jews as “filthy,” often with teenage and younger girls present.
The women pushed the notion that man-made laws are not to be followed, only the laws of Islam; therefore, democracy should be rejected.
“We do not submit to the law of any country, any nation,” said one of the women.
One of the women tweeted against wearing the traditional poppy on one’s lapel in honor of servicemen killed in war, describing a person who wears the red flower as an “apostate.”
Accusing Israel of killing Muslim children, the radical female activist Umm L said, “The amount of Muslim children – I won’t even use the word ‘Palestinian’ – Muslim children that are in custody of those filthy Jews.”
On the videos, Umm Usmaan frequently quoted Islamic religious texts to encourage people to travel to Syria, while Umm Saalihah told Muslims online to go work for the caliphate, the documentary reported.
Repeatedly, the British women attacked Britain for allegedly waging a war against them.
“Allah, one by one, he will destroy them,” one female preacher said regarding coalition fighters targeting jihadists.
Those launching air strikes on the Islamic State group in Syria were described as “cowards” and engaged in “killing innocent people.”
“Aisha” the undercover reporter saw online messages encouraging girls to travel to Syria.
“Start saving for a plane ticket and don’t tell anyone,” social media activists told the impressionable young Muslim women.
The documentary can be viewed at Channel 4.
A Pennsylvania beauty queen is facing felony charges for allegedly raising thousands of dollars from donors whom she tricked into believing she was battling cancer, police say.
Brandi Lee Weaver-Gates, a 23-year-old reigning Miss Pennsylvania U.S. International, was arrested Tuesday and charged with theft by deception and receiving stolen property, NBC affiliate WJAC reported. Her bond was set at $150,000, and she remains jailed at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
Pennsylvania State Police said they began looking into the case after receiving an anonymous letter.
“When confronted with what the investigation revealed, the accused advised that she did not want to incriminate herself and invoked her right to an attorney,” police said in a statement.
Weaver-Gates allegedly carried out her “elaborate scheme” over the course of two years – going as far as shaving her head and having family members drive her to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to get treatment.
She also held fundraisers in attempt to swindle money, police said. Police said one event in April – called “Bingo for Brandi” – apparently raised $14,000.
“It speaks to how great our community is,” Weaver-Gates later told The Centre County Gazette. “They wanted to come and support someone who is going through a hard time in their life.”
Weaver-Gates claimed she was first diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in March 2013, according to the Centre Daily Times.
“I didn’t know how to tell my family and even though they were there through it all, it still feels like (you’re) battling it alone because they don’t understand,” she told the newspaper in an interview last year.
Upon her arrest on Tuesday, Butler’s Beauties, which coordinates Miss Pennsylvania U.S. International, said in a statement that she has been stripped of her title. The pageant’s organizers said that they, too, believe they were duped.
“Butler’s Beauties believes that with a crown and sash you can accomplish many great things as a role model, spokesmodel and community leader as a beauty pageant queen,” the statement said. “When you deceive the public and take people’s money that is under the pretense of fraud, we will not tolerate those actions.”
They added that she must return her sash and crown upon being released from jail.
Jeb Bush had a rough day at CPAC 2015.
The crowd booed him during his Q-and-A with Sean Hannity and several conservatives walked out during the session.
Conservatives streamed out of CPAC 2015 when Jeb Bush hit the stage.
It’s a good thing he bussed in supporters to cheer for him.
It sounds like Jeb Bush’s supporters are taking CPAC pretty seriously this year. Emails provided to Slate show that backers of the former Florida governor are busing supporters from downtown Washington D.C. to CPAC in National Harbor, Maryland, and organizing to get them day passes into the event.
One of the emails that went out this morning was from Fritz Brogan, a former advance man for then-President George W. Bush who (per the Washington Post) co-hosted a fundraiser for Jeb’s Right to Rise PAC earlier this month. A Bush insider confirmed to Slate that Bush’s Right to Rise PAC is helping organize the transportation.
“We strongly recommend arriving as early as possible to get a seat,” wrote Brogan in an email sent to undisclosed recipients. “Our ‘Early Rise’ team will be there at 7:30am onward helping reserve seats- if you want to join the early team, let me know.”
