Recently on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” ex-Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) warned that “the United States is embracing more and more of Islamic Sharia law,” claiming that “Islamic organizations” like the Council on American-Islamic Relations “are wildly successful in advancing the implementation of Islamic law through public schools, through public accommodations, community centers, community colleges, etc.” “For instance, here in Minnesota, public schools serve ‘halal’ food, Islamic Sharia-compliant food in our local cafeterias and public schools,” she continued. “I mean, can you imagine if Baptist kids came in and said, ‘We want accommodation’ or Catholic kids said, ‘We want accommodation.’ Are you kidding? They’d be drummed out of the schools and called bigots and racists.”
Bachmann also added that she feels like her Christian faith “is constantly in danger” after being tricked into trying halal food at one point. “Not only was it awful, but the worst part is I didn’t know what I was eating when it happened. They only told me afterwards, which made me throw it up instantly,” she said. “I mean, I really try to keep an open mind towards all the cultures and peoples that have a home here, but I think it’s important to keep in mind at the same time that this is America, not the other way around. In order for an immigrant to become an American, they must accept the rules of this society, and that includes the culture, traditions, customs and in many cases, the predominant Christian religion. That’s not what we’re seeing today.”
“What we’re seeing today,” she continued, “is that everyone who shows up here and crawls up under any rock half way around the world with the notion of living the American dream seems to bring their own culture here. You don’t see assimilation anymore; all I see is people coming here from different parts of the world and continuing their lives as if they’re still at home. And because there are more and more Muslims coming here as well, they keep bringing their primitive, women-hating laws and culture to this great country. The scariest part is, they keep wrapping it up and masking it as seeking out their democratic, Constitution-guaranteed rights and civil liberties. In reality, it’s nothing more than a farce designed to annihilate the Christian faith.”
“I have to tell you, not a day goes by that I don’t feel soiled by that halal food, that Devil’s meal. I keep remembering how I was tricked by them, how they kept convincing me it was perfectly okay to try it only to laughingly tell me afterwards what it really was. I feel as though I’ll never be pure again and that’s not even the worst part. The worst part is I feel like my Christian faith is in danger 24/7 now because of it. I might as well burned down a crucifix just for the hell of it, that would be equivalent to what I was tricked into doing. And I know deep down that that sin is going to haunt me for as long as I live. I’ll never be what I was because of them. That’s why I urge my fellow Americans not to make friends with Muslims, not to eat their food, not to drink their drinks, not to talk to them, not even to look at them. They need to go back where they came from and it needs to happen, like, yesterday,” Bachmann concluded.
