Republicans Attempt to Criminalize the World’s ‘Greatest Threat’ – Muslim Interns!

LOL! Republicans crack me up. Shout out to Asim for sharing this.

As President Barack Obama said:

“The dream of opportunity for all people has not come true for everyone in America, but its promise exists for all who come to our shores — and that includes nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country today who, by the way, enjoy incomes and educational levels that are higher than the American average.

Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion.  That is why there is a mosque in every state in our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders.  That’s why the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it.

So let there be no doubt:  Islam is a part of America.

    I was an intern for Senator Lincoln last summer and yes, I am a Muslim. Therefore, this topic is particularly hilarious to me.

    As interns, our jobs consisted of filing, answering phone calls, and looking busy. It's purpose is nothing more than learning about what your representative does on an everyday basis and making your resume look good.

    I find it incredibly disturbing that some our nation's elected officials could be so ridiculously ignorant.
