RELENTLESS MUSLIM WHINING over federal program called Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), started by Obama to counter all kinds of extremism, but under Trump will focus mainly on Islamic extremism/radicalization/terrorism.
The Blaze Under the administration’s plan, the “Countering Violent Extremism” program, which is intended to counter all types of violent ideologies, including white supremacy, would become “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.
So opposed are Muslim groups to fighting Islamic extremism, they have even turned down federal funding to fight terror. A California Islamic school has become the fourth Muslim group to turn down federal funds to fight terrorism under President Donald Trump’s administration, funds they had been receiving under a program developed by former President Barack Obama.
Fox reports this is the fourth Muslim-affiliated school to turn down federal funds from the CVE program. Unity Productions Foundation of Potomac Falls, Virginia, plans to decline $396,585 to produce educational films challenging extremist ideologies “due to the changes brought by the new administration”; Leaders Advancing and Helping Communities, based in Michigan, turned down $500,000 for youth and health programs due to the “current political climate”; and a Minneapolis Somali nonprofit called Ka Joog also turned down $500,000.
Muslim groups took the money under Obama because they believed his administration wasn’t hostile to their faith.
A1.2: Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) is a federal “counter-terrorism” initiative that uses “community engagement” to target Muslims in America and other communities deemed inherently suspect, which threatens their civil rights and chills their freedom of expression. #StopCVE

A1: According to @DHSgov, #CVE programs aim “to address the root causes of violent extremism.” But, these programs are based on false premises that end up targeting American #Muslims and stigmatizing Muslim communities as inherently suspect.#StopCVEhttps://t.co/WyPI7L3RNw pic.twitter.com/pUTMEWJLz9

A4.1: CVE has always been focused on combating “Islamic extremism,” even though the govt claims it is applicable to all forms of extremism. CVE also targets other communities of color, like BLM activists. #StopCVE https://t.co/f5rK1JUYDx

Both Republicans and Democrats have bought into this junk science – but the focus on criminalizing Muslim-Americans has even been more escalated during the Trump administration.#StopCVE
