Andre Carson envisions 30-35 muslims in Congress by 2030

Andre Carson envisions 30-35 muslims in Congress by 2030

 

In January, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) hosted a Community Congressional Reception for the 3 muslim members of Congress; Andre CarsonRashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.

During the reception, Congressman Andre Carson stated that he hopes to see 30-35 muslims in Congress by 2030. 

Carson said: 

It’s more than just about having three Muslims in Congress. I think symbolically it has great value, but I won’t rest until 2020 we have five more members of Congress, 2022 and 24, we have 10 more Muslims in Congress. In 2030 we may have about 30-35 Muslims in Congress.

Before Carson spoke of his hopes to have more muslims in Congress, Carson referred to the current muslim members of Congress as superheroes. 

Carson said: 

Voters across the country showed up and showed out. They did so much that they elected our brother, Superman Keith Ellison, to be attorney general. Yeah. They left Batman and I felt all alone. And then all of a sudden I looked in the sky and saw Wonder Woman come out of nowhere. And then I looked on the other side and I saw Storm from the X-Men come out of nowhere. And we’ve got firepower in Congress.

Carson went onto praise Rashida Tlaib, saying:

We’ve got sister Rashida in the House, and she’s tough. She’s the kind of sister you take to a debate with scholars with you, because she’ll rock the house. She’s also the kind of sister you take with you if you’re about to get jumped, because she’ll fight too. That sister’s tough. Love her dearly.

Carson was first elected to Congress in 2008, making him the second muslim Congressman in the U.S. following Kieth Ellison, who was elected in 2007.

One thought on “Andre Carson envisions 30-35 muslims in Congress by 2030

  1. Well, if you have still not figured out this is a carefully planned attack on Western Civilization, you’re already dead.

    The rest of of us better wake up and start protecting our homeland, as they are coming after us for real. If you don’t want to fight this battle in the streets, we better start fighting it in the polling places.

    Long ago I learned that freedom is protected by three boxes; the jury box, the ballot box, and then all else fails, the ammo box.
