Now, I know some of you are going to say “Big deal. They wont win.” So let me list muslims who have ALREADY won in previous elections in the United States:
Keith Ellison is a muslim convert and Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District. Ellison was first elected to the House in 2006. He won re-election in 2012. Ellison won re-election in 2016
Amir Omar is a muslim man and the City Councilman for Place 7 in Richardson, Texas.
André Carson is the U.S. Representative for Indiana’s 7th congressional district.
Larry Shaw is a Democratic member of the North Carolina General Assembly representing the state’s twenty-first Senate district.
And lets not forget, we had a muslim in the White House for 8 years!
If you’re wondering my point with this article, here it is – Getting into positions of power is all part of the muslims goal to enforce sharia law. Muslims do not want to assimilate, they want to take over. They do not want to be your friend, they want to kill you. There is no such thing as a moderate muslim and there never will be. If we do not speak out, educate people and vote against these people, this will no longer be America.
