Muslim Congressman Andre Carson (D-IN) envisioned a future of 30-35 Muslim members in Congress by 2030, who will be elected to powerful posts such as committee chairs, Speaker of the House and even President of the United States.
Congressman Carson gushed over the newly elected Muslim Congresswomen, foul-mouthed Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Rep.Ilhan Omar, the woman who married her own brother, while speaking at a reception for terror-tied CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) on Thursday.
Carson fantasized about Rashida Tlaib, the Palestinian Rep who called President Trump “motherf*cker” the day she was sworn into office on a Quran, becoming Speaker of the House or a Senator.
“We’ve got firepower in Congress. We’ve got sister Rashida [Tlaib] in the House, and she’s tough.”
“She’s the kind of sister you take to a debate with scholars with you, because she’ll rock the house. She’s also the kind of sister you take with you if you’re about to get jumped, because she’ll fight too. That sister’s tough.”
Although Carson said that it was important to have three Muslims in Congress so far, it’s not enough — he wants more Muslims in power.
“In 2030 we may have about 30, 35 Muslims in Congress,” Carson said.
“Then we’re talking about Madame Chair Rashida. We’re talking about Madame Chair Ilhan,” Carson continued.
“Hell, we could be saying Speaker of the House Ilhan, Speaker of the House Rashida, Senator Rashida, Governor Ilhan, President Fatima, Vice President Aziza. Inshallah [Allah willing].”
Carson described Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as “powerful” and “smart.”
“They’re ready. They represent the next generation of Democratic leadership. They’re unapologetic about who they are, and they won’t bow down and they’ll never, never sell you out.”
At the end of his speech, Rep. Carson said every American Muslim has “a directive to represent Islam, in all of our imperfections, but to represent Islam and let the world know that Muslims are here to stay, and Muslims are a part of America. And we will have a Muslim caucus that is sizeable, that is formidable, and that is there for you.”
Every Muslim member of Congress is closely tied to CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator of the largest terror funding case in US history — Had enough yet, America?
