Friday on Fox and Friends, Muslim Author Dr. Qanta Ahmed eloquently embarrassed former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich and his idiotic “Sharia Law Test.”
On Thursday Gingrich told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the U.S. should implement a mandatory religious test for all Muslims across the nation to determine who supports Sharia Law. He said once the government finds someone who supports Sharia Law, that person should be deported.
Western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door. But we need to be fairly relentless about defining who our enemies are.
Ahmed took exception to Gingrich’s irresponsible rhetoric and took the time to educate her ignorant Fox News hosts as well as Gingrich on what Sharia Law actually is.
It’s very discouraging when you’re a Muslim here in the United States, as am I, as are about three and a half million other people, every time this happens, all Muslims are dehumanized,” she said. “How are you going to test me? How are you going to test me? If you say — Gingrich does not even understand sharia, though he’s not alone in his ignorance. The whole narrative in the 18 months we’ve been talking does not understand what sharia means. Which means I live a God-centered life.
Having realized they were inadvertently promoting a message of logic and reason, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade immediately cut the interview short for a commercial break after promising the viewers that they’ll return to talk about Donald Trump.
Gingrich’s call for a “loyalty test” based on Sharia Law flies in the face of the constitution and the very reason people founded America, to begin with.
The idea that the U.S. could elect a president who shares this mindset should be all the motivation anyone should need to get out to the polls on November 8th and vote to defeat Donald Trump.
