Skip to comments.Muslim Republican Lawmaker Leaving GOP Over Perceived “Bigotry” (good riddance)

Muhammad Ali Hasan, a member of the wealthy and influential Colorado Republican Hasan family and a past state House and treasurer candidate, said he is switching parties. Speaking at the University of Colorado-Boulder on his experience growing up Muslim in the American West and later in conversation with the Colorado Independent, Hasan said he is ending his affiliation with the party for the bigotry he believes has shaped Republican politics over the last year. The FOX News regular and founder of Muslims for Bush said he met recently with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the controversial Democratic leader won him over.
I met her in Los Angeles. For a Republican thats like He-Man [meeting with] Skeletor, he said, referencing the Masters of the Universe cartoon arch-enemies. I am impressed by her vision. She convinced me that the Democrats will work to protect and further the interests and opportunities of minority Americans. That matched with the politics of Reagan for me. He was a champion of the American dream, the idea of America as a shining city on a hill. He expanded opportunities through small business credits and amnesty for immigrants. It was all about opportunity.
I have three top political heroes: Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and now Nancy Pelosi. She has such a spine, like Reagan and Bush, they all have that in common: a spine of steel that comes from conviction.
Major financial backers of conservative causes and candidates in the state and friends to national GOP leaders and successive Republican presidential administrations, the Hasans have publicly struggled with the post-Bush Palin-era GOP. Matriarch Seeme Hasan during the Ground Zero Mosque debate said she didnt recognize the party. Ali Hasans defection comes in the wake of news that state GOP lawmakers will introduce tough Arizona-style immigration legislation and held a high profile hearing on the topic with a slanted roster of experts that featured almost no immigrant rights groups but several with ties to white supremecist organizations.
‘I have three top political heroes: Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and now Nancy Pelosi’
Saying that Reagan and Pelosi have anything in common is insane.
“Matriarch Seeme Hasan during the Ground Zero Mosque debate said she didnt recognize the party.”
That’s right, some members of the party grew some balls you Islamist RINO.
So he waits till after the election after he has stolen our donations.
He talks about bigotry, how bout talking about theft?
Read is tweets - he's a punk.
We sure don’t need any clown that could compare the Pelosi witch to the great Ronald Reagan!
good riddance, and stick your “DREAM Act” where the sun won’t shine, buddy!
I am sorry...maybe I missed it, but what does this guy do?
Awww....wittle Muhammy doesn’t feel special anymore.
I am going to send him a can of spam to show my appreciation.
Neither George Bush’s belong in the same category as Reagan.
The only exmplars of similar spiritual and political competence are:
Is that the guy from CHIP’s?
LOL. In younger years there’s a slight resembance and that guy turned out to be a homosexual...lol.
Nothing! absolutely Nothing! He’s a self-professed rag-head...just wants someone to TAKE him?
Just like a kid that gets mad and runs away from home...says “ya’ll don’t love me anymore...but the neighbors said they would take me (sticking out tongue).Good! Go live over there forever. We don’t want to feed you lazy a** presumous people no more.”
