Mason, TX. August 1, 2011 – The Mason County Republican Women and the Mason Tea Party meets Thursday, August 11, 2011, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Richard P. Eckert Civic Center in Mason. Featured speaker: Dorrie O’Brien, discussing “Sharia Law and the Muslim Brotherhood” Dorrie O’Brien became a chapter leader for ACT (Act for America) in 2007, an organization dedicated to safeguarding national security by enacting legislation against Sharia law. The real driving force behind orthodox Islamists is Sharia Law, which serves as the basis for them attacking America. Ms. O’Brien studied Islam for several years before taking a stance against radical Islam, which she has come to know as a threat to the United States. She was attracted by ACT because of their uncompromising policy to expose and defeat Islamic Jihad in this nation. Dorrie’s valuable contribution to ACT has been acknowledged by being appointed a National Mentor, and she is a member of ACT’s speaker bureau.She graduated in 2010 from the invitation-only, prestigious Strategic Engagement Group for the Study of Islamic Doctrine in Washington, DC. Some of her many accomplishments include creating an anti-Sharia resolution that was incorporated in the Republican Party of Texas Platform at the 2010 State Convention. She helped get HB911 “American Law for American Courts” legislation filed in the 2011 Texas legislative session. This is essentially an anti-Sharia bill; it garnered much support, passed in the House, but did not pass the Senate.Ms. O’Brien is the daughter of an Air Force colonel, and proud inheritor of a long family tradition that boasts of having at least one soldier in every American war since the Revolution.
