Needless to say, ALL of the Democrat candidates are, and continue to pander to the people who pose the greatest threat to America…Muslims in America. But a few Republican candidates also have revealed their own disturbing Muslim sympathizing sides.
Islamic Commentary As you can see in the video a few posts down at BNI, Rep. Bernie Sanders, Democrat Socialist hugged a Muslim supremacist while vowing to fight against growing anti-Muslim backlash in America.
Last Friday, former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (below) denounced the socially-corrosive evils of “Islamophobia and xenophobia” at a conference held by the Arab American Institute at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. During his remarks, O’Malley decried that Muslim “houses of worship…have been denied permits, worshippers exiting the mosque in Phoenix (Arizona)…greeted with protesters carrying assault rifles.”
He also said the U.S. should take in a lot more Syrian Muslim refugees…at least 65,000.
O’Malley also spoke out against the U.S. Islamophobia network, describing it as a “shadowy network of hateful” groups that are “scapegoating and marginalizing Arab and Muslim Americans.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s top advisor is a Muslim, Huma Abedin, whose own family is actively involved in the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton also had high praise for now deposed Muslim Brotherhood leader of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, while serving as Secretary of State.
In response to Ahmed, the fake, phony clockboy’s detention, Hillary Clinton Tweeted, “Assumptions and fear don’t keep us safe—they hold us back. Ahmed, stay curious and keep building.”
It is well-known that her Clinton Foundation has garnered tens of millions of dollars in donations from terrorism-supporting Arab Muslim leaders. Clinton has also agreed with the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) that criticism of Islam must be curtailed and penalties should be imposed on those who insult Islam.
While Clinton has not directly condemned the rising tide of anti-Muslim bigotry, she recently released a campaign video showing her wearing a blue head scarf out of respect for local customs while on a diplomatic mission in Pakistan as Secretary of State.
Unfortunately, a handful of Republican presidential candidates have come out and forcefully denounced “Islamophobia” (It is not a phobia to fear people who want to kill you)
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie remains the GOP’s standard-bearer in speaking out against anti-Muslim bigotry within the Republican Party and conservative circles.
Christie dismissed Trump’s handling of the question about the Muslim threat to America by stating: “I’ll just tell you what I would do, and I wouldn’t have permitted that. If someone brought that up at a town hall meeting of mine, I would’ve said, ‘No, listen. Before we answer, let’s clear some things up for the rest of the audience. And I think you have an obligation as a leader to do that.”
More significantly, Christie has been widely praised by designated terrorist group group CAIR for appointing a Muslim terrorist lawyer as a Superior Court Judge. When anti-Muslim activists attacked him with allegations that he was promoting sharia (Islamic principles) for nominating a Muslim judge to the New Jersey Superior Court, he went on the offensive by saying that, “This Sharia law business is just crap. It’s just crazy, and I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.”
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has also become one of the strongest Republican voices against Islamophobia in the GOP primary by Tweeting that Carson “is not ready to be Commander-in-Chief” in response to Carson’s opposition to an American Muslim president. Graham went so far as to say Carson should also “apologize to American Muslims.”
In July, Graham also shot down an audience member at an Iowa campaign stop who proposed outlawing Islam in America, stating: “You know what, I’m not your candidate. I don’t want you to vote for me. I couldn’t disagree with you more.” He later added that, “I’m not buying into that construct. That’s not the America that I want to lead.”
Carly Fiorina, not only praised the Ottoman Empire as the “greatest civilization in history,” she also got around sanctions on Iran by setting up a shadow corporation in Dubai to sell $100 million in products to Iran while she was CEO of HP.
Fiorina also said Ben Carson was “wrong” to say he didn’t believe a Muslim should be president. She added: “You know, it says in our Constitution that religion cannot be a test for office. It is also true that this country was founded on the principle that we judge each individual and that anyone, of any faith, is welcome here.”
