Texas Rep. Introduces Sharia Law Ban Because He “Heard It On The Radio” That Sharia Was In Dearborn
Texas GOP state Rep. Leo Berman has introduced a bill that would ban Sharia law because he fears that Sharia law will come to Texas as it has come, he falsely believes, to Dearborn, Michigan. (via Think Progress)
Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly, who has appeared on national news to refute the idea, said all the comments are due to “ignorance” and political gamesmanship.
“These people know nothing of Dearborn and they just seek to provoke and enflame their base for political gain,” he said.
Berman is sounding the alarm because he heard something on the radio, even though he admits knowing nothing about Dearborn.
“I heard it on a radio station here on my way in to the Capitol one day,” Berman said Monday in an interview. “I don’t know Dearborn, Michigan but I heard it (Sharia is accepted law here) on the radio. Isn’t that true?”
Uh, no. Oh, and Leo is also a birther.Click here for reuse options!
