Rubio's Islamophobia Reverses Previous Support For Muslim Immigrants. Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Just in case anyone thought that Senator Marco Rubio (FL) is offering a Republican alternative to Donald Trump's Islamophobia, Rubio issued a February 3 statement denouncing President Obama for making a speech at a Baltimore mosque in which the president condemned prejudice against Muslims.

Obama is the second president to visit a mosque in order to speak out against anti-Muslim bigotry. The first was a Republican, George W. Bush, shortly after 9/11.

Rublio had been under attack from the right for supporting immigration legislation which would have allegedly made it easier for people to come to the US from "jihadist" countries.

In his comments, Rubio accused the president of "dividing" and "pitting" people against each other by claiming that there is discrimination against Muslims in America. He then proceeded to admit that there is such discrimination, but that "the bigger issue is radical Islam".

Rubio did not explain how the need to protect against radical Islam justifies discrimination against all Muslims, solely because of their religion, even when there is no evidence of any terrorist connection.

Rubio has evidently gone a long way from his previous support for comprehensive immigration reform in order to assume the mantle of Donald Trump.

    There was nothing wrong about President Obama's visit, but many people believe he is more interested in fair treatment for Muslims than he is for Christians.

    Where is there the slightest shred of evidence that Obama does not respect or care for Christians? (Other than the more than 2 million whom he has deported while in office, and the hundreds of Christian families from Central America that he is tearing apart through deportation raids now - but we don't hear very many complaints about that from Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio or other right wing politicians who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ.
