Lafferty Detained by State Department

Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) president Andrea Lafferty was targeted and detained by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security personnel this Wednesday during the closing event capping the three day closed-door conference advancing the implementation of U.N. Resolution 16/18.

“For weeks we have been asking whether the true aims of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and U.N. Resolution 16/18 would be used to apply “old fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to chill and coerce those critical of the Islamist agenda,” said Lafferty.

“Hillary Clinton was as good as her word,” said Lafferty.

Lafferty was circled by several members of Secretary Clinton’s staff before being approached by a member of the security detail, demanding Lafferty follow him. When asked why she was being removed from the reception hall, the security detail announced that a phone call had identified Lafferty as a “security threat” to Secretary Clinton. […]

Secretary Clinton in a June 2011 conference in Istanbul, Turkey remarked how certain comments from those concerned about Islamic fanaticism have been deemed as “incendiary” and looked to sympathize with efforts that would criminalize certain speech that is “an incitement to imminent violence.”

“This language — “incitement to imminent violence” — has been used time and time again to close events here in the United States concerning the impact of Islamic shariah law, detain law-abiding Christians elsewhere, and now even target and detain as security threats people from State Department events,” said Lafferty.

  1. Hi Kris,
    I am reading Edge of Apocalypse by Tim LaHaye and this sort of assult on free speech is a major theme running through the book.

    Quite scary, but I suppose this sort of thing is only going to get worse before Jesus comes back for His saints.

  2. Hi Malcolm and welcome,
    There’s no doubt we are living in the biblical last days, and as you said, things are only going to get worse prior to Christ intervening. I have often commented that “Truth is the new hate-speech”, and the ongoing attack on free-speech will primarily be targeted at biblical Christians and people who hold conservative Judeo-Christian values; those who promote truth and expose error, lies, and deception.

    Lk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
