Spencer Returns Fire

Last night I linked to a story about CAIR's assault on Robert Spencer; well today Spencer got to have his say, and Michelle Malkin live-blogged the event. You'll want to check it out and I will also update with a link to the video of Spencer's speech, once they have that up.

UPDATE: Dr. Rusty Shackleford has more, including a video report of the YAF event from Brit Hume:

Robert Spencer spoke today at the Young America's Foundation despite CAIR's threat that they would sue YAF if Spencer made any defamatory remarks. I guess YAF called CAIR's bluff, eh?

Anyway, most of you already knew this since we all travel in the same blog circles. But since Robert has become something of a friend--in the online sense of the word--then I just wanted to give him some props. Good going man and good going to the people at YAF for standing up the the bullies in CAIR.

The man has a set of cajones much larger than me. Despite death threats he's out there in the public eye criticizing those elements of Islam that are most dangerous, repressive, and violent.

Robert has a roundup here and Michelle Malkin was there to see it live. Lucky. Anyway, it was big enough news that Brit Hume had something to say about it. Video here.

And Stacy McCain has a partial transcript of the speech. Here's a teaser:

If CAIR succeeds in smearing and silencing all those who dare to speak about the elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify their actions, and who dare to call upon CAIR itself and other groups to go beyond vaguely-worded condemnations of terrorism to real efforts to teach against the jihad ideology in schools and mosques, what chance do we have to resist the spread of that ideology? ...
