U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd of supporters [last week] that the country needs to address a “militant terrorist situation” that has allowed Islamic religious law to take hold in some American cities.
So says the AP, in Angle: Muslim law taking hold in parts of US.
According to the AP, Ms. Angle was referring to … wait for it.. Dearborn, Michigan.
Dearborn, Michigan? Controlled by militant terrorist Muslims who want to deport all the other citizens of the town?
A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations was really quite kind about it all, settling for calling Angle's demagoguery “incoherent bigotry”. How about, maybe, several sandwiches short of a picnic? Certifiable? Raving delusional? Unfit for public office? Yet Angle is leading in some polls in Nevada.
Time to dust off one of my favorite Thomas Jefferson quotes:
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
Then again, maybe Sen. Angle would be the retribution.
Well, to be real, Dearborn DID try to stop some Christians from proselytizing, (On the basis that it might cause the poor Muslims to riot, apparently.) and that IS a common Muslim law.
