we are already seeing backlash after Keith Ellison was elected in Minnesota.
Not all the backlash was because he's Muslim. Some was. But most has been because he's a Muslim who attended very questionable rallies. There is
a thread about him somewhere here I think. I remember seeing some of the rallies he's attended and who attended with him. No, it's not against the
law to attend rallies ... but what was preached at these leads me to bellieve that SOME OF THOSE in attendence are INTOLERANT of us non-muslims and
that these people do not want what is best for America.
That's what I saw.
a lot of people are furious at the fact that this dude is a moslem who will carry the Koran into Congress.
Yes. Dumb huh? And that politiican from Virginia who is on the airwaves complaining about it is looking like a complete idiot. (perhaps he isn't
just looking like one, perhaps he IS one??)
rednecks of the bible belt will simply not tolerate it.
You just reminded me of something. When I lived in Alabama for 9 years (HATED IT!), just before we moved out Gore had Lieberman as his VP running
mate. There were letters to the editor of the Huntsville Times from people , which got printed, who said they'd never vote for someone who wasn't a
Christian. They'd vote for Clinton who claimed to be a Christian but was a lieing sex addict ... but they wouldn't vote for Lieberman who is a
prayerful quiet spoken man because He's Jewish.
There weren't any calls to riot or for civil disobedience if he was voted in, but you may be right, they might not tolerate a Muslim as POTUS.
