Nearly 300 self-proclaimed Muslim leaders penned a letter to President-elect Trump, calling on him to protect Muslims in America from alleged and mostly unsubstantiated anti-Muslim harassment and violence. And just in case they haven’t maxed out their victim cards yet, they urge him to ‘reconsider and reject his “Islamophobic” Cabinet nominees.’
LA Times Leaders of some of the most suspicious Muslim groups in America have released an open letter to President-elect Donald Trump to “express serious concerns” about his policy proposals and upcoming administration and ask him to protect their community. (Sorry, he’s too busy trying to protect his American community from people like you)
The crap-sandwich letter, published Monday at MuslimLetterToTrump.com with 291 signatures, is endorsed by top officials from such Muslim Brotherhood front groups like Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), as well as dozens of radical imams, professors, activists and leaders of Muslim Brotherhood campus Islamic groups like the Muslim Students Association (MSA).
Muslim groups have strongly opposed many of Trump’s pronouncements and advisor picks since the election, though the letter is one among the first unified responses to the president-elect from members of the faith. (Not to worry, it’s already in the trash)
“During and immediately following this year’s presidential election cycle, American Muslim organizations received more reports of anti-Muslim hate crimes than any other period of time since 9/11. (Which still makes them only one-fifth of the documented anti-Jewish hate crimes in America). We call on you to make mutual respect and acceptance a hallmark of your presidency,” the letter says. (You first)
“Furthermore, along with many other Muslims, we are deeply troubled by reports that your team is actively considering proposals that would target Muslims based on religion and violate their Constitutional rights (No, they wouldn’t, there is precedence).
Advisors and members of your transition team have proposed a registry of Muslim immigrants and visitors to this country. (Easier to round you up that way)
The letter says that Muslims will also hold Trump and “all elected officials accountable for upholding our Constitution and the equal protections it guarantees.” (See below)
Washington Post Muslim leaders also called on Trump to “reconsider and reject” some of the individuals he recently named to his administration who have “
a well documented history of anti-Muslim bigotry (a well-documented understanding of the threat that Muslims pose to America as outlined in their holy books and the Muslim Brotherhood Project for conquering America through mass migration, political and media influence, and violence when necessary in order to turn it into an Islamic state.)
The letter, which also heralded the
long totally false history of Muslim contributions to American society, did not identify any of Trump’s advisers or cabinet appointees by name. But some of its 300-plus signatories have previously expressed concern about Trump’s selection of retired Marine Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as a National Security Adviser,
Michael Flynn is also adviser to the leading anti-Muslim grassroots group, ACT for America, and has said Islam is a "cancer." Lovely.
