Bernie Sanders’ team has sent Tlaib and Abdul El-Sayed, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2018, to campaign for him in mosques in Michigan Friday to garner up Muslim votes, Politico reports.
Muslim and Arab-American voters played an important factor for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 upset victory in Michigan that gave his failed campaign a second life.
Sanders is counting on them again to help revive his bid for the presidency in 2020.
The Vermont senator has won endorsements from key Muslim elected officials here, tapped Muslim leaders to be his top surrogates, and held a rally this week in one of the largest Muslim communities in the country. But for Sanders to succeed, it’s not enough for Muslim voters in Michigan to simply support him: He also needs them to come to the polls in droves, something that hasn’t happened among some crucial pro-Sanders voting blocs in early primary contests.
Sander’s campaign has been flying under the radar when it comes to the mainstream media reporting on his camps extreme push to gain Muslim support. Which should come as no surprise because of the socialism and marxism views that Sanders whole campaign is about, the Muslim communities beliefs share the same twisted views.
According to the LA Times:
Since February, Sanders has named a Muslim to be his campaign manager, tapped a prominent Muslim Palestinian American activist as a surrogate and visited a Los Angeles mosque to commemorate the victims of a New Zealand terrorist massacre at two Islamic houses of worship.
Last month, he headlined the Islamic Society of North America convention in Houston, where he got a standing ovation for his promise to overturn President Trump’s travel ban blocking most visitors from five predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. It was the first time a presidential candidate addressed the largest and most prominent Muslim gathering in the country, and more than 7,000 people packed in to hear him.
Why do we tolerate putting Muslims that desire to destroy the American way of life into political offices where they can do exactly that? Then when they do start breaking down American history, culture and our Amendments, people do nothing but complain about it.
