Jon Elrod, despite his best efforts, was unsuccessful in taking down the Democrat machine in the Special Election that occurred yesterday in Indiana's 7th. Reuters
Reutershas the news:
INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) - Indiana voters on Tuesday elected a Muslim to Congress, only the second of that faith chosen in U.S. history.
Andre Carson, grandson of the late Democrat Rep. Julia Carson, was elected to serve the balance of her term in the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election.
The article goes on to say that Carson converted to Islam a little over a decade ago. This is a fact that hadn't even affected my decision to support Elrod, though it would've. I have plenty of questions for any followers of The Religion of Pieces. Carson will face a primary in May to get his own party's nod to run in the actual election in November, where he just may face Elrod again (I believe). This is a race to watch.
Demography is destiny, I’m afraid.
If someone had told me in October of 2001 that there would be any muslims elected to federal office, and that the democrat front-runner would be named Barack Hussein Obama, I’d have fallen off my chair in laughter.
Does that mean he’ll really take orders from imams, like Catholics do with the Pope?
That is what most Freepers don’t get. Demographics are against the Republican Party and strongly support Democrats. The Mexicanization and Islamization of the USA is very scary. All Democrats.
Not to mention the stupid, uneducated youth of America. “Yah, like, Obama, he is soooo, like, cool!!!”
Are people in Indiana awake? Do they keep their heads buried in the sand (or dirt, or whatever they have in Indiana)? I can’t believe that people are that willing to turn their government over to people whose religion is the most intolerant on the face of the planet.
Second Muslim? I assume they are still in denial about Obama? ;-)
It has reached the point where it is not funny any more. Since they have killed 3000 of my country men I do not like them very much no matter what banner they fly.
I’ve gotta email my Indiana auntie and ask for an explanation for this post-911 behavior.
“Does that mean hell really take orders from imams”
No, he takes orders from Louis Farrakhan.
just announced: Brother O’Bammy coming to Indy to celebrate on Mar 15

“Stupid is what stupid does”
The Indiana 7th district exists to elect minority candidates. It consists of Indianapolis proper, but none of the affluent suburbs.
That's only the approximate count of those killed on 9/11/01. These Islamo-facists have been murdering our citizens and military personnel much longer than that. What the actual number is I don't know, but it is higher than 3000.
Minority candidates are one thing. Electing a person who is a member of the most intolerant religion on earth is something else.
Local media had a COMPLETE BLACKOUT on the word “Muslem” concerning Carson.
It was like it was a gag order! If someone even STARTED to mention it on local radio, they got cut off.
SCARY what PC has done to us...
According to your response, I apparently don’t...at least not like you do.
In reality, given the amount of support Carson got from Local Media, The money from the DCCC and the DLC, and the local machine, the un-party-supported and nearly broke ELROD did AMAZINGLY well.
BIG National Dem money was used for carpet bombing Carson advertising.
Elrod had a few tv commercials the 2 days before the election.
Unfortunately unless we get a good turnout in November the result won’t change.
They probably mean the 2nd one who is admitting tht he is a muslim.
Yeah, now that Andre al-Carson is now a Superduper Delegate I’m sure B. Hussein is sucking up really good right now.
The adverts for al-Carson’s Dem primary opponents started today.
I really doubt there are even two Muslims in our government. I question the authenticity of his faith unless he has a rap sheet that hasn’t come out yet. He should be slaying the infidels. I think he’s a fake.
“The Koran is above all a book of war “” a call to butcher non-Muslims (2:191, 3:141, 4:91, 5:3), to roast them (4:56, 69:30-69:32), and to cause bloodbaths amongst them (47:4). Jews are compared to monkeys and pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:166), while people who believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God must according to the Koran be fought (9:30).”
You are right. 3000 was just the approximate number killed on 9/11. For some reason I do not like anything Muslim and never will.
