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

Published

on

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:

Speaking with the host, Katherine Stewart, who is also the author of the book "The Power Worshipers," explained that years of anti-science rhetoric from the predominately rightwing evangelical movement is a contributing factor as to why the country is in the throes of a deadly pandemic that may lead to over 250,000 deaths.

Ex-Homeland Security adviser reveals to The View another Trump coronavirus failure no one’s talking about

Published

on

Tom Bossert, a former Homeland Security adviser to President Donald Trump, identified one failure of leadership that has mostly escaped notice during the coronavirus outbreak.

Governors have begged the president to order the manufacture of ventilators and other medical equipment under the Defense Production Act, which Trump has already invoked, but Bossert said he must also anticipate another need to eventually end the pandemic.

"This is a massive, complicated logistics challenge at this point, and, you know, Gov. [Gavin] Newsom and others will tell you that it's not just about large-scale purchasing," Bossert said. "It's about deciding who needs it and whose priority should trump others because this is a scarcity of resource problem at this point. We're kind of past what we would have, could have and should have done, and we're making decisions about who gets what when and why. That's the trick."

Published

A veteran Republican campaign official is raking Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner over the coals for taking on a major role in the White House coronavirus task force despite being totally unqualified for the position.

Attorney Lloyd Green, who served as opposition research counsel to George H.W. Bush's 1988 presidential campaign and then worked at the Department of Justice in the early '90s, writes in The Guardian that Kushner's presence on the task force is literally putting more Americans at risk.
