Muslim groups aim to get
5,000 Muslims to run for office
in America in 2020

I can now say that I have survived my first Republican State Convention as a delegate. While not everything went the way I would have liked, at least I was able to get a small, but important, statement added to the preamble to the state Republican platform. The third paragraph now starts with these words: “We believe that all public officials and candidates for public office should be willing to publicly acknowledge the supremacy of the United States Constitution.”
This is important because it gives “we the people” a way to vet public officials and candidates, particularly those who are followers of Islam. A true follower of this ideology cannot make this statement. One of the tenets of Islam is that the rules and laws put forth by Allah, Sharia, are to be followed; any man-made laws are subservient to these and have no sway over Muslims. We see this in our courts when terrorists are tried under our laws and laugh with disdain at the judge and tell the court that they can only be tried by the laws of Islam.
Of course, we do have public officials and candidates for office who follow this ideology. So, what are we to make of it when they take their oath of office and swear to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution? I see a couple of possibilities that exist. First, there are “cultural” or “secular” Muslims who do not follow all of the tenets and beliefs of Islam just as there are non-practicing Christians who don’t study the Bible and don’t follow the path of a true believer. Second, there is the possibility that a Muslim is following Taqiyya, which is a deliberate deception to promote an Islamic goal—in other words, they would be lying to us infidels because one of the Islamic goals is to take over any country that is not following the rules and laws of Allah and to do whatever is necessary to bring them under Islam.
We must ask questions of all Muslims running for and elected to public office to ascertain if they will truly uphold our Constitution. Dr. Steve Kirby has developed four questions he has asked of 80 Muslim public officials and is in the process of asking of Muslim candidates for public office.
