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.
