GOP lawmaker’s Facebook eruption: Round up Muslim sympathizers and run them out of our country

State Sen. Jason Rapert (Facebook)

Republican Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert is back in the news this week after having another freakout on social media.

Arkansas Times reports that Rapert is claiming vindication after Facebook has decided to restore posts he wrote over the weekend where he declared his support for rounding up and deporting not just Muslim extremists, but “every single Muslim extremist sympathizer and other anti-American crazies.”

“Regardless of who is responsible for these events today – we need to round up every single Muslim extremist sympathizer and other anti-American crazies and detain them or deport them,” wrote Rapert in response to the mass stabbing that occurred in a Minnesota mall and the dumpster bombing in Manhattan. “And for goodness sake – stop bringing more Muslims into this nation.”

Rapert also said that Muslims “wait for every opportunity to convert Americans to Islam or kill the infidels — that is what their holy book the Koran instructs them to do.”

At any rate, it seems that Facebook removed his post because it supposedly violated “community standards.” He went on a successful whining campaign and got the company to put them back up. Facebook even apologized for removing his posts and claimed that it was all a big accident, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy his rage:

"Mr. Trump plans to announce on Saturday that she is his choice, according to people close to the process who asked not to be identified disclosing the decision in advance. The president met with Judge Barrett at the White House this week and came away impressed with a jurist that leading conservatives told him would be a female Antonin Scalia, referring to the justice who died in 2016 and for whom Judge Barrett clerked," the newspaper explained.

Published

The anti-Trump Republican PAC Lincoln Project dropped a new ad this Friday, this time targeting President Trump's upcoming announcement of his pick to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the "hypocritical Republican Senators who have vowed to push Trump’s nomination through the Senate before the next president can be sworn in."

"The 60-second ad 'The Choice' condemns Republican Senators for tearing the country apart in their unending quest for power and position. It admonishes their unchecked power in their attempt to remake America in Trump’s image," the group said on its website.

Published

on

Reading non-U.S. publications is an excellent way to gauge what other countries are thinking about life in the United States under the Trump Administration. But U.S. publications sometimes address that subject as well, and New York Times reporter Hannah Beech — in an article published this week — takes an in-depth look at non-U.S. reactions to the effects that the coronavirus pandemic and other crises are having in the U.S.

From Canada to Myanmar, Beech reports, much of the world feels badly for Americans in light of how deadly COVID-19 has been in the United States — which leads the world in deaths from the novel coronavirus.
