The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is furious that Scott Presler is among the featured speakers at this year's CPAC, because they consider him to be "anti-Muslim".
"Another speaker on the lineup for the conservative mega-gathering CPAC is getting some unwelcome spotlight for anti-Muslim statements and activity, and this is only scratching the surface of the extreme ideologies being trotted out at this week’s event in Orlando," wrote Matthew Moyer for a local paper on Thursday.
"Presler had been involved with 'ACT for America' from 2017-2018 as an organizer. The Southern Poverty Law Center has characterized that organization as ‘an anti-Muslim hate group because it pushes wild anti-Muslim conspiracy theories, denigrates American Muslims and deliberately conflates mainstream and radical Islam."
According to PJ Media, there is a massive difference between being opposed to oppression in the name of religion and being "anti-Muslim." The former position is perfectly understandable in the case of Presler, who is openly gay.
CAIR, on the other hand, has been directly linked to Hamas, whom the whole world recognizes as a terrorist organization, and has been named by the Justice Department of the US as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case of funding terrorism.
As well, their current executive director has publicly called for the US government to be overthrown.
