Brigitte Gabriel, one of the most absurd and inane voices on the Islamophobic right wing, went on Newsmax TV and declared that it was impossible for Muslims to assimilate into American society, no doubt because only Christians could ever be considered “real Americans” to her.
Why is it that the Muslim community is not blending in with the rest of American society?” he asked.
“Because this is what they are being told in mosques across the United States,” Gabriel responded, claiming that American mosques are “instructing their people not to shake hands on Christmas or Easter or wish the Americans a happy holiday.”
“Is there any chance that the Muslim community will ever turn it around?” Lynch asked.
“No,” Gabriel responded, “there is no chance, we are seeing a reverse, actually, instead of a blending in, instead of assimilation.”
