been away for a few months. haven't heard anything in the news after all the camp evictions in november or so. the local group here in dallas completely disappeared after their eviction, i haven't seen any presence downtown anymore. kinda disappointing.

hard to get noticed without a visible presence to the public

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction," says Obama.

Misleading e-mail: From Audacity of Hope: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Actual quote from "The Audacity of Hope" [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
