Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Would Faisal Gill “Pull A Steve Smith?”

By Greg L | 9 January 2007 | 51st HOD District, Manassas City | 8 Comments

Back in October, Councilman Steve Smith was the lone dissenting vote on the Manassas City Council on a resolution proposed by then-Councilman Jackson Miller whereby Manassas declared that it would participate in the Section 287(g) program. A number of citizens were deeply disappointed in Councilman Smith’s decision and believed it might have had something to do with Councilman Smith’s law practice, which is said to be involved to some degree in defending the interests of illegal aliens.

Although Councilman Smith’s actual motives for his vote may or may not have been a case of economic self-interest, you’d really have to wonder what sort of conflict-of-interest might be built into a vote on controlling illegal immigration by Faisal Gill, if elected to the House of Delegates, given this snippet from the website of his law firm:


Even if you or your loved one is already in the process of being removed from the U.S., Gill & Gallinger may be able to help. We can help you qualify for protection from deportation based on Cancellation of Removal, Waiver of Deportation, Asylum, or other methods. Time is extremely important in situations dealing with possible removal, so contact the Gill & Gallinger today for a free consultation.

What are the chances that a Delegate Faisal Gill would “pull a Steve Smith?”

    There would seem to be a bit of conflicting interests here. Whether or not he knowingly covorted with supporters of terrorism is one thing. What cannot be debated is that he has and is highly involved with radical special interest. This is what concerns me most. In the other threads, the usual suspects chime in in defense of Gil (the same ones who were so staunch in their support of Chapman), just because they feel that he is “conservative” and as a reward for his labor and financial support given to other conservative candidates. Nevermind looking at the complete package. Nothing regarding whether or not he would be beholden to a particular interest group, which happens to have a few bad apples in it. I would make the comparison of the Right-to-Life lobby. Most in the RTL group would rather use the tools of legislation and peaceful protest to move their agenda forward, while a small percentage advocates violence against doctors and nurses who perform abortions. In the muslim community, a large portion are peaceful practitioners of their faith. However, some sympathize with, and provide material support to groups that funnel money to terrorist organizations.

    I wonder, would Gil help close down Saudi and Pakistani Madrasah’s operating in Virginia, which indoctrinate young muslims with a hatred for America and Israel? Would Gil’s lawfirm continue to profit from defending those the United States has deemed dangerous enough to warrant deportation? Who would he be on the hook to?

    If you don’t think that Tim Kaine and the Democrats aren’t hoping that Gil is the GOP candidate, then you are a fool, and you don’t know how campaigns work. If you don’t think that there would be democractic independent expenditures broadcasting the same information that Greg has put out, then you have your head in the sand. If you don’t believe that there are very legitimate questions and concerns regarding Gil’s electability, especially when there are many radical muslims in this world who wish to do us harm, then you are blind.

    Now I have no doubt that the usual suspects will jump in and pick this thread apart, leaping to Gil’s defense. No problem. The purpose of a blog is to increase political discourse. Questions were asked of JFK, as the where is loyalties were, to Rome, or to the USA. The difference here is that at that time, there weren’t Catholics bent on destroying America and Israel, nor where some leaders of the Catholic faith calling for a Crusade against America.

    Can a muslim be elected and serve the citizens of Virgina? I have no doubt that one could. Considering the sate of the world today, should a muslim candidate be examined very closely to make sure that he or she doesn’t have divided loyalties? Yes. A larger question is, can this candidate, win in a general election?

    IMHO, Gil cannot win. There’s too much fear, uncertainty and doubt that the Dems could sew in the minds of voters, and the 51st is not Republican enough to negate this. It won’t matter who he’s worked to get elected, or how conservative he is, or even what his positions on the issues are. Gil will be on the defensive the entire campaign, and the Dems haven’t even nominated a candidate yet. Talk about a softball. Call me a bigot if you like, I am trying to look at this as a practical matter.

    Speaking of Chapman, I hear he has put “his mattress ” in the Neabsco district for a possible run there now. I have also heard rumors that Gary Friedman is doing the same in Woodbridge. Might be another interesting story for you to look into there Greg.

    “There would seem to be a bit of conflicting interests here.”

    You bet there are, “Batson.” The first would be your insistence on pseudonymity so that no one can discern what your “conflicting interests” are.

    I note, however, the fact that Greg is engaging in the same kind of attacks on an attorney for his law practice — i.e., using the tools in service to his clients — that the far Left frequently uses to attack Dave Albo. Now, one doesn’t need to have much use for Albo — I never have — to recognize the patent unfairness of such criticisms. Unless one is planning to disqualify all practicing attorneys from elective office (an idea with attraction to some, with some justification), then such criticisms are unfair, save for those situations involving special legislation or favors benefiting a single client.

    There are some questions that Faisal must answer. Perhaps the first is whether he would ever vote to impose Shari’a law, which — I have been led to believe — is an article of faith in the Muslim faith/ideology/political system. I believe that the answer would be “No,” though I admittedly haven’t asked him.

    The question of whether Faisal can win is a different one. I happen to believe that the voters of the 51st District are sophisticated enough to reject the kind of bigotry to which these accusations might be directed, if his pledge is to the Constitution (an oath he has taken before), rather than to the teachings of Mohammed. And certainly, I believe that the GOP should reject appeal to bias in its nominating processes, particularly those given credence by people who are hiding their identity.

    And, so far as I can recall, no one has called you a “bigot.” Yet.

    Here’s a conflict of interest for you:

    Faisal Gill is representing a person who is suing Greg L./Black Velvet Bruce Li. Nowhere in this post is this fact disclosed by Greg.

    What’s the status of that lawsuit, anyway Greg?

    I discussed it on the 6th here: http://www.bvbl.net/?p=592

    I guess you weren’t reading enough BVBL. Shame on you.

    Greg, Where there is smoke there is fire. I’m with you. I can’t wait to see who is foolish enough to publicly endorse him and those that do are either idiots, don’t care or they are so desperate for money they’re not thinking clearly. Get ready for a Convention in the 51st District. I hope there is a school auditorium large enough to hold all the delegates that will show up to vote.

    “Get ready for a Convention in the 51st District.”

    Has someone announced that they will challenge Gill for the nomination?
