Egypt, Libya, Tunisia now ...... Nashville.
The Hutton Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee is now sharia-compliant.
Steve Eckley, Senior Vice-President of Hutton Hotel, has caved to Islamic supremacist demands and cancelled our entire Preserving Freedom Conference scheduled for November 11th in Nashville. Eckley notified us that they will not honor our contract. Steve said that if we showed up we would not be let in. He said he has been getting threatening letters and calls. We are currently awaiting the written notification of the cancellation.
Steve Eckley's phone number is 720 318 4238. He said he would not let us in the hotel if we showed up. He was so ugly and hostile, it was shocking.
I was a scheduled keynote speaker, along with Robert Spencer, Wafa Sultan, Mark Durie, William Murray, Father Keith Roderick, and a host of voices for freedom.
This is the second time in no less than a week that a major hotel has capitulated to intimidation and demands to enforce the blasphemy laws under the sharia here in America. Opposing the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth is now forbidden in the war of ideas.
Just last week the Hyatt Place in Sugarland canceled a tea party event where I was scheduled to speak. They have since apologized, but that is hardly enough. Free speech, the cornerstone of our constitutional republic, is in serious jeopardy. Under the Shariah, criticism of Islam is blasphemy (punishable by death in Muslim countries living under the Shariah). This is the death of free speech in the continuing Islamization of America. This is yet another shattering demonstration of why I wrote my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.
The silencing of free speech is key to the islamization of America.
Americans must boycott these cowardly enterprises and raise their voices in protest.

Nashville is a gateway city for refugee resettlement -- whole Muslim communities are resettled in "gateway" cities like Lewiston, Maine; Shelbyville, Tennessee; St. Cloud, Minnesota; Clarkston, Georgia; and Jamestown, North Dakota. Nashville has one of the country's highest Muslim populations.
I strongly urge all Atlas readers contact the Hutton Hotel and voice your concern with the abridgment of our cherished and hard-fought freedoms. This continuing restriction of free speech is a key front in the war on the truth. Your future, your children's future and that of our country is at stake. I cannot impress this upon you enough.
Get this out to your lists, your friends, and all the freedom lovers that you know.
This cannot stand. Start calling. Now.
UPDATE: The cretins at Hutton Hotel are referring callers to their PR firm. Don't accept that. Politely insist upon speaking with hotel senior management. The attempt to blow you off to their spinmeisters at their highly paid PR firm is not going to cut it.
Check this out -- here's the latest info from Steve Gill:
Mr. Eckley told me that they cancelled the event because of "risk to their property and staff" and numerous threatening calls they received. I asked him where the threats were coming from and he refused to answer that. He indicated he did not contact the FBI or Homeland Security or local police, because he cancelled the event and there was no need to do so. I asked him if the hotel gets a bomb threat over a particular event to they simply cancel the event and fail to contact police in that case, too? He then hung up stating I was "so right wing" he didn't want to talk any longer. The hotel has referred any contacts to their pr agency.
