Texas Tribune – County party officials overwhelmingly rejected attempts to remove Shahid Shafi because he’s Muslim. The 139-49 vote in his favor came after the state’s top Republican officials denounced the failed move to oust the trauma surgeon.
We don’t think that he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S., in Tarrant County, and in the TCGOP, and there are big questions surrounding where Dr. Shafi’s loyalties lie, vis a vis Democrat and Republican policies, she wrote in one of several Facebook posts dedicated to the topic.
^^So they think that because he’s Muslim, he’s a secret Democrat? Not all Republicans think Islam is safe? THE FUCK? Islam is a peaceful religion.
Star Telegram -Some Republicans who say it’s time they take our party back are pushing to remove a top Tarrant County GOP official [Dr. Shahid Shafi] because he’s Muslim. Please explain to me … why we need a Muslim in the SREC in Tarrant County! There are no Conservative Muslims or Moderate ones! Republican Vicky Underhill posted on theRepublican Women of ArlingtonFacebook page.
Daily News – Precinct chairwoman Debbie O’Brien has been outspoken about efforts to recall Shafi on social media. We don’t think that he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S., in Tarrant County, and in the TCGOP, and there are big questions surrounding where Dr. Shafi’s loyalties lie, vis a vis Democrat and Republican policies, she wrote in one of several Facebook posts dedicated to the topic.
You already see it in the workplace where Muslims demand they’re able to wear their hijab and demand they get a prayer room, Former Tarrant County precinct chair Sara Legvold said. When was the last time a Christian was allowed to have a separate place to say their prayers?”
^^^WTF? Why does any of that matter? These holier-than-thou “Christians” are going around persecuting Muslims for no reason! That is not what Jesus would do, idiots. Hey Sara! If Christianity is so important to you, go ask your employer for prayer breaks and say the rosary during work every day. If your employer denies you, cry out for religious discrimination. Can your believe this IDIOT white lady actually wore a Burka to prove that there is an Islamization of America. For serious? Go do something else with your life. Christsake.
Good for everyone who stood up for this man! The Governor even know’s what’s up: “The promise of freedom of religion is guaranteed by the first amendment in the Constitution; and Article 1, Section 4 of the Texas Constitution states that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust in this state”
These 49 intolerant people are fucking abominations who need to kill themselves. America is a country founded on the principles of RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. Do these people not understand the United States Constitution?!?! These ignorant fucks are trying to remove a man from office because of his religious beliefs? Are they outside their fucking minds?
The 49 people who voted to remove him should be deported and dumped onto the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to start their own idiotic country, because they are un-American. If they were actually educated, they’d realize that Islam is a peaceful religion. Yeah, there are a few radicals here and there, and Islam as a religion DENOUNCES that bad behavior. You can’t judge an entire religion on a bunch that have gone rogue. You can throw “I did X in the name of religion Y” around all you want. If you’re a good person who’s nice and doing good things, you’re good. If you’re a shitty person doing awful things, you’re bad – simple as that.
These 49 people brought about bad attention to the already batshit crazy Republican party. Love em or hate em, the majority of Republicans involved actually thought this sort of discrimination was a bad move. Why go after a religious group? That’s only going to hurt them. Are they brain damaged?Here’s my problem with America… It shouldn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican to realize this is wrong. Don’t like Muslims? Shut your whore mouth and keep it inside your own ignorant head.
Here’s some solid portfolioso.com advice: Want this dude out of office? All you have to do is publish some “fake news” on him and invent some scandal, and walla! He’s ruined. But don’t lower yourselves and say it’s in the name of a potential link to radical Islam. Even if you secretly think it is, shut the fuck up and come up with some other excuse.
People can believe in whatever religion they want to, what the hell do I care.Take something like Scientology, which is batshit, wonky, utterly made up horsecrap… If people want to be dumb and get roped into that sci-fi fairy tale, by all means they have every right to do so. Doesn’t affect me whatsoever. And if they run for office and want to do good things, then go for it. If they run for office and try to create bullshit laws based on the principles of Scientology, let’s say, to build a launch pad for Xenu to land his DC-8 spaceship on, then it’s justified (not on the grounds of religious intolerance, but on the grounds that I’m not spending taxpayer dollars on a landing pad for Xenu’s fucking spaceship. That motherfucker blew up people with hydrogen bombs and shit like that. I don’t want to die yet, thank you very much).
So go and let this educated man do his political thing and leave his religion out of it!
PS – Scientology leader people – don’t sue me. I’m tolerant over here, I was just using you as an example for shits and giggles. I know y’all sue everyone for defamation and crap, so just go on believing in your thing and I’ll leave you alone, I promise. But for real, if I disappear because of this blog that 4 people read, then I think you know where to start looking for me.
