Wingnuts Oppose Muslim Republican Candidate

David Ramadan is running for the Virginia State Assembly as a Republican and he even has the endorsement of Eric Cantor and Ed Meese. The the anti-dhimmi dummies don’t like him because he’s openly and flagrantly Muslim.

James Lafferty is chairman of the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force. He says Ramadan supports the “Ground Zero” Mosque in New York City and has also had some ties with the lobbying firm for Libya in the United States.

Good, he should support that mosque. The owners of that building have every right to turn it into an Islamic center if they wish. And ties to lobbyists for Libya? There’s hardly a Republican alive that doesn’t have “ties” to a lobbying firm for Libya. Former Republican House Speaker Bob Livingston’s firm lobbies for Libya. And another lobbying firm had Straussian historian Francis Fukuyama vouch for Gaddafi’s son as part of their PR campaign. There’s hardly a conservative alive who doesn’t have “ties” to those people. This is the anti-Islam version of six degrees of Kevin Bacon.

“That’s not like any conservative I’ve ever met,” Lafferty says of Ramadan’s connections. “He’s says that those of us who are opposed to building the Ground Zero Mosque are ‘racist’ and ‘Islamophobes.’

You are.

“Lots of Americans are getting this sort of condescending attitude from extremists like Mr. Ramadan. We don’t think he should be in the House of Delegates in Virginia. We’re not even sure he should be allowed to continue to live in the United States.”

Thank you for proving just how crazy you are.

    What a bunch of low life bigots.

    I’m sure they would say the same thing about me as an ex-xian.

    Most likely they would say we shouldn’t even be allowed to live. And if no one was looking, they would make sure of that. People like this send me death threats all the time. It’s a fundie xian thing.

    They eat their own.

    We’ve been watching the POG heading towards a full-up schism for a long time. Under Shrub, the usual cohesive effects of national power kept a lid on while letting the pressure build. Having a Coon in Chief in the White House blew the lid off, and they’ve got the bit in their teeth now.

    If they manage to take the Presidency next year, we’ll either get Nehemia Scudder or the lid will go back on while the economic damage cranks up the heat. What happens in 2014 will be very, very interesting.

    A Muslim Republican? Seriously?

    What’s next, Jews for Hitler?*

    * No, not comparing Republicans to Hitler. What I’m asking is how could a person join a group whose members literally do not want him to exist? Who want to kick him out of the fucking country for seeking elective office?

    Oh, and for Lafferty, Article VI, paragraph 3, right there in the Constitution. English, mother fucker, do you speak it?

    There’s no small print in there that says: “Except Muslims.”

    I oppose all openly religious candidates, because I know that they’re fucking nuts.

    Unfortunately, there are no candidates that support my views. So much for representative democracy, if you’re out on the “rational fringe”…

  • D. C. Sessions

    Fifth Dentist, please consider GOProud for your “What I’m asking is how could a person join a group whose members literally do not want him to exist?”

    …nd has also had some ties with the lobbying firm for Libya in the United States.

    How many of the former Bush Administration had ties to Saddam Hussein’s regime before the war there?

    Hey, I’m just asking a question!

  • Chiroptera

    Is Ramadan the Republican candidate, or is he still running for the Republican nomination?

    If the former, will the Islamophobes vote for the Democrat, or not vote in that particular election?

  • ehmm

    “James Lafferty is chairman of the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force.”

    The answer to a question NO ONE asked.

    Do these people recognize what an own-goal this is, for their party and the country? Do we get to call these people “racist” now?

    When did the Village People add an anti-Sharia character?

  • Fifth Dentist

    @ D.C. Sessions

    Noted, and I agree. We could also add the following to that list of people who should never consider supporting Republicans: atheists, agnostics, Buddhists and Hindus (OK, any non-Christian, which in fundie world would include Catholics, Mormons, those pussy peace-loving Quakers, etc.), physically or mentally handicapped (remember Lush Limppole’s mocking of M.J. Fox?), the sane, people who read books, people who are even considering in the future reading any book that is not the Bible. … Feel free to add to this list.

    Also, since making my initial comment I’ve remembered that there actually IS a Jewish Nazi — Pam Geller.

    Women. Poor people. Anyone ESL. Anyone living on a coastline. Anyone who appreciates a nice latte, iced or otherwise.

    Ties to Islam? Don’t forget, that Fox News is partly owned by a Saudi prince.

  • oldebabe

    ” flagrantly…”??? Like Occam’s BI above, I think it’s unnecessary for people to flap their religion in everyone’s face; whether it’s just verbal, or waving a bible, or praying, etc., or flopping down/nose to the ground, rear raised… (??? do the women do that, too?) tho as I don’t know the Muslim tenets, maybe this is how they are expected to proselytize… but really, it’s no one else’s business.

    Will any of that posturing make them better public servants in a democracy? Not likely.

    Finally, an organization with even less to do than the Unicorn Preservation Society. lol.

  • Shawn Smith

    … Anyone living on a coastline.

    You mean like Corpus Christi TX, Galveston TX, Gulfport MS, Mobile AL, Pensacola FL, Jacksonville FL, Savannah GA, Charleston SC, and Norfolk VA? Interesting.

    Was being facetious, see latte reference

  • CJColucci

    And he’s running as a Republican?

    I’d heard of self-hating Jews, but until today I hadn’t seen an example of a self-hating Muslim.

  • interrobang

    So Ed Meese supports him, huh? There has to be a porno joke in there somewhere, but damned if I can see it.

  • Chris from Europe

    The support of Cantor and Meese could be an indicator that he’s actually a generally unethical (Cantor) and also murderous (Meese) monster.

  • http://bobapril.blogspot.com/ BobApril

    Shawn Smith, Dennis N – why was that facetious? After all, do we know where the new coastlines will be when the icecaps finish melting? I think it fair to assume that all the “red-state” coastal areas will turn blue when they’re underwater.

  • danie lrotter

    ehmm: What’s an “own-goal?”

  • daniel rotter

    Never mind. I looked it up in Wikipedia (yes, I should have looked it up BEFORE asking the question. It’s been a long day).

    Former Republican House Speaker Bob Livingston’s firm lobbies for Libya.

    It’s awfully nice of you to refer to Livingston as a “former speaker” given that he never made it past “speaker-elect.” His extra-marital affairs were exposed after the Republicans nominated him for speaker by acclamation, whereupon he withdrew his candidacy. The GOP scrounged around and found Denny Hastert instead. It was felt that Livingston would be an ineffective leader under which to pursue the impeachment of Bill Clinton on a morals charge.

    That’s how I feel about GOProud. A bunch of Judenrats.

    Does anyone have a source for the Hillary Clinton calling Cheney Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine? ‘Cause I know it was a common liberal joke, it just doesn’t at all sound like something she’d actually say.

  • redwards

    Apparently, up until 9/11, Muslim-Americans were a small but consistent voting bloc for Republicans, what with so many being small-business owners (thanks for helping give us a bad name, guys!). Then, you know, Republicans decided to crap on a growing contingent of their own voters, a la conservative Catholic Hispanics.
