Andrew McCarthy: Rule of Law, Equal Protection Threatened Under Obama DOJ
Andy McCarthy twice addressed the AIM “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth” conference. The author and former federal prosecutor discussed the Obama Justice Department, under the leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder. McCarthy successfully prosecuted the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
“What we’re seeing in this administration,” said McCarthy, “is not only an out-of-whack choice about what their priorities ought to be, but the actual use of political philosophy in deciding who gets prosecuted, and how cases get conducted—and that, for somebody who’s been inside the Justice Department, is an unbelievable thing…If you have a situation where the Justice Department is using politics in the actual enforcement of the law, then you don’t have the rule of law anymore, and you don’t have equal protection under the law anymore.”
In a later talk at the conference, McCarthy discussed his new book, Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, which we will post in the near future. He also gave an interview at the conference, where he said that what’s happening in the Middle East “is not the spontaneous outbreak of democracy,” but rather the ascendancy of Islamic supremacism. McCarthy also observed that the only countries that practice slavery today are Islamic countries. He said that America and Islam are two different civilizations and that while we’re a freedom culture, in Islam “liberty is subordinated to ‘order’…sharia law.”
He added that what the media largely ignore is the fact that there is serious persecution of religious minorities throughout the Middle East. He indicated that of the worst 50 countries that persecute religious minorities today, 36 of them are Muslim countries.
