Christian protesters shout down Muslim kids singing National Anthem at Texas rally: ‘Islam is a lie!’

Published

Angry conservative protesters disrupted the Texas Muslim Capitol Day celebration in Austin on Thursday, repeatedly shouting “No Sharia” and screaming “Go home.”

The celebration was organized by the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and according to their website, the event was “an opportunity for community members to learn about the democratic political process and how to be an advocate for important issues.” The group largely consisted of Muslim students and children, along with faith leaders.

The event was protested by a group calling itself the Patriot Defense Foundation Inc., who claimed that CAIR sought to create a climate in which it would be able to “take over” America, destroying it for “Americans [who] believe in the Constitution and what this country was founded on.”

Only about 20 protesters affiliated with the group showed up to the protest — some of them carrying signs declaring “Radical Islam Is The New Nazi” and imploring the students to “Go Home & Take Obama With You.”

Another sign read: “I serve a risen savior, Jesus Christ. Muhammad is dead.”

Though small, the group made its presence known, according to local reporters on the scene.

Early in the celebration, a woman grabbed the microphone away from a Muslim speaker and shouted, “I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the capitol of Texas. I stand against Islam and the false prophet.”

Video of the protest shows the same woman screaming, “A prayer to a false god,” as the celebrants later prayed. The protesters then recited the Lord’s Prayer.

Local reporters said protesters shouted “Islam is a lie!” at Muslim children when they were singing the National Anthem. One protester reportedly shouted: “There’s no ‘twilight’ in Sharia!”

Protesters also shouted other pro-Christian statements peppered with cries that “Muhammad is dead” throughout the event.

Before the rally, state Representative Molly White (R-Belton) left a message on her Facebook page indicating that she would not be able to attend the celebration, but that she did “leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws.”

“We will see how long they stay in my office,” she added.

Trump may allow churches to open for Easter despite local bans: ‘Something we should talk about’

Published

"Maybe we could allow special, for churches, maybe we could talk about it. Maybe we could allow them, with great separation outside, on Easter Sunday. I dunno, it's something we should talk about."

"We're not going to churches on Palm Sunday. But think of next Sunday -- Easter," Trump said.

"And I brought it up before, I said, maybe we could allow special -- for churches, maybe we could talk about it. Maybe we could allow them, with great separation outside, on Easter Sunday," he said.

"I dunno, it's something we should talk about," Trump added.

Watch:

Trump has no idea how coronavirus is transmitted from person to person and therefore doesn't get why packed churches amid a pandemic is a bad idea. This clip of him talking about how he considered an Easter exemption from social distancing shows it. pic.twitter.com/G4LXzNIGKf
