OK Republican: Any Muslim Who Practices Islam Shouldn’t Be Trusted

A local Oklahoma Republican representative said recently that while not all Muslims are bad people, any Muslim that subscribes to the actual practices of Islam should not be trusted.

...

One woman challenged him and said there are nice, moderate Muslims who don’t appreciate their elected leaders calling them “no better than ISIS.” Bennett shot back, “Where are your nice friends? Why aren’t they here? Why aren’t they out there saying, ‘Hey, you know what, we don’t believe in that?’”

He made a comparison to the Nazis and basically said that any Muslim who practices the Muslim faith cannot be trusted:

“You think every German was a Nazi? No, they weren’t. But what happened with the Nazis was that once they got in power, all those Germans that sat quiet or were scared to say anything had no choice but to follow and support what they were doing. “So is every Muslim bad? No. but if they subscribe to Islam and what it teaches, and if they’re not standing up and condemning what Islam teaches, then they’re just going right along with them, just like the Germans did when the Nazis were around.”

Because when Muslims stand up and actual denounce this mess, those same folks put their fingers in their ears and close their eyes.

If they're still practicing, does that mean they haven't got it right yet? :unsure:

Because I can believe it to be the case for lawyers, but I'd rather not believe it for doctors. :(

I feel the same way about Christians.

People actually elect representatives with these politically unsophisticated views? Fascinating.

Of course, you got morons on both sides of the fence.

Are there Muslims that don't practice Islam?

If there are, I would love to meet them.
