You know how your liberal friends roll their eyes when conservatives call President Obama a Muslim?
Then ask them to explain this.
The latest dump of WikiLeaks’ Podesta emails show that the Obama administration kept a comprehensive list of high-profile Muslims they wanted to appoint to top administration jobs, such as agencies and policy committees, and sub-cabinet positions and outside boards.
The 2008 emails reveal it wasn’t enough to be just an Arab American – you had to be Arab and Muslim to make it onto this list.
The email written by Preeta Bansal – who worked on the transitional team headed by Podesta – and currently presides as a campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, said:
“Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).”
There was also concern that some of the suggested Muslims would not survive media scrutiny, with one aide responding:
“High-profile Muslim Americans tend to be the subject of a fair amount of blogger criticism, and so the individuals on this list would need to be ESPECIALLY carefully vetted.”
“I suspect some of the people I list would not survive such a vet — but I do personally know, at least in part, virtually all of the candidates in the 1st two categories (but I know very few of those listed for outside boards/commissions).”
Every candidate on the list was labeled by their nationality and race, with other leaked emails showing potential appointees were also labeled with an ‘F’ for female, ‘B’ for black, ‘H’ for Hispanic, and ‘M’ for Muslim.
Now there is clear undisputed evidence the Obama Administration used race and religion to influence their hiring.
Since Obama’s term is almost up, and since we all know Hillary Clinton will continue the “legacy” of Obama, will she continue hiring Muslims as well?
As discussed earlier, Bansal works as a campaign manager for Hillary’s campaign now. Clearly he has a say in the process.
However, the question remains. Will the mainstream media report on these new damaging and embarrassing emails?
We just learned in another Podesta email that 65 mainstream journalists and networks colluded with Hillary Clinton campaign staffers to discuss how to frame the news and “sell” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton to the American public.
Yet, there’s no mention of these Podesta emails in the mainstream news.
The journalists from NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, Politico, Bloomberg, New York Times, Daily Beast and the Huffington Post were treated to lavish dinners and cocktail hours by Clinton’s campaign while they received instructions on how to present Clinton in a positive light.
It was one of the most elaborately planned get-togethers – and Clinton’s campaign likes to hold intimate and off-the-record parties.
Of course no Fox News reporters made the list. They talk about the Podesta emails at least.
And you won’t hear about many of these Podesta emails from the other news networks because they obviously love Hillary Clinton more than doing their jobs and respecting journalistic integrity.
Do you think these Muslim-hiring emails will make the mainstream media?
