Trento to Speak as “Expert” on Muslim Students & Extremism at ACT! Meeting


Imagine 2050 Staff • Apr 11, 2013

Tom Trento, founder and president of The United West, will be the featured speaker at the Corona, Calif., ACT! for America chapter meeting on April 13 at 6:00 p.m. Trento co-authored “Shariah: The Threat to America” with John Guandolo and Frank Gaffney. The group says “Trento knows first hand how Muslim Student Associations on campuses have been a vehicle of extremism, hate and incitement” and promises to provide an update on MSA activity on local campuses.

It remains to be seen if Trento and the ACT! chapter leaders will mention the recent FrontPage Magazine “infiltration” of MSA’s West Zone conference. Despite reporter Mark Tapson’s conclusion that the event was “innocuous,” he and other far-right personalities insist the group is a breeding ground for future radicals.
