Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett has become the subject of controversy after exposing the ugly truth about Muslims and Islam. Now, the state representative is organizing an event featuring members of the organized counterjihad movement.

GOP leaders DID respond:
Imagine On Oct. 13, Rep. Bennett is co-hosting a (virtual) town hall meeting featuring leading expert on the threat to America of creeping Islamization and the Muslim Brotherhood, Frank Gaffney at Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Clare Lopez, former FBI special agent, who is employed by Gaffney’s think-tank Center for Security Policy, is also scheduled to take part along with Oklahoma Pastor Paul Blair of Reclaiming America for Christ, another co-sponsor of the event.
“We plan to continue to educate the public about the very real threat that terrorists present to the U.S.,” Bennett said about the meeting.
However, given Gaffney and Bennett’s past history, the meeting will almost surely manifest itself as a chance to spread the truth about Islam and the domestic threat that the presence of even non-terrorist Muslims in America pose. The meeting appears to be in response to the tragic events (Tragic? Beheadings aren’t tragic, they are Islamic) last month at a Oklahoma food processing plant involving an assailant who is Muslim.
In a press release last week, Bennett laid out his plans to host an event to find out “Who are these people and why are they doing these terrible things to us?” This rhetoric is welcome considering Bennett has previously warned his constituents be “wary” of Muslim Americans.
This also is not the first time Bennett has associated with Gaffney and his ilk. Last year, Bennett, via his informal House Counterterrorism Caucus, sponsored a law enforcement training seminar that featured Gaffney, Lopez, and Jerry Boykin, a retired Lt. Gen. who argues the practice of Islam should not be protected under the First Amendment.
Bennett’s Counterterrorism Caucus colleague Rep. Dan Fisher is also co-hosting the event.

In a town hall appearance in Muskogee, Republican Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett told the assembled crowd that the expansion of rights for Muslim Americans is no different than the growth of the Nazi Party in Germany before World War II.
Raw Story Bennett argued that there are no distinctions between radical Islamists and everyday Muslims, that all of them are programmed by their faith to attack and destroy Christianity.
“Mohammed’s teaching only teaches one thing,” he told the Muskogee Patriots this week. “And that’s the violence that we’re seeing today in ISIS and in the beheading in September, a 30-year-old employee of Vaughan Foods attacked two women, killing and beheading one of them. The suspect, Alton Nolen, had recently converted to Islam and had reportedly tried to convert coworkers. However, police have not ascribed a religious motive to the murder, which is being prosecuted as an act of workplace violence.
Rep. Bennett, however, sees the attack as evidence of a growing domestic jihad movement in this country.
Audience member Tina Kelley accused Bennett of needlessly fomenting suspicion and fear of Islamic people, citing her friendships with Muslim families. “They don’t like having their government say that they’re no better than ISIS,” Kelley said, “and having their Oklahoma neighbors made afraid of them.”
“Well, let me ask you a question,” Bennett countered. “Where are your nice friends? Why aren’t they here? Why aren’t they out there saying, ‘Hey, we don’t believe in that?’”
He said that Muslims condemn violence against the innocent, but that no one outside the Muslim faith is considered truly innocent by Islamic standards. Muslims, said Bennett, can only be trusted if they fully renounce their faith.
“Do you think every German was a Nazi?” he asked. “No, they weren’t. But what happened with the Nazis was that once they got in power, all those Germans that sat quiet or were scared to say anything had no choice but to follow and support what they were doing.”
“So is every Muslim bad? No,” he said, “but if they subscribe to Islam and what it teaches, and if they’re not standing up and condemning what Islam teaches, then they’re just going right along with them, just like the Germans did when the Nazis were around.”
