Summary: Christie flips out at a reporter for suggesting a Muslim judge is a risky choice because of Sharia law.
Note: Freepers who previously seemed pretty anti-Muslim were defending Christie's decision here. Only a few of them, granted, but still. I was pretty surprised, but I think he actually made a difference in how some people think about Islam.
*** Gov. Christie made clear he had no patience for such “ignorance,” calling the complaints “crap.” ***
It appears Gov. Christie is quite ignorant when it comes to islam.
This is very disappointing.
Looks like Christie is quite literally, full of it. Take this Sharia Law crap EXTREMELY seriously.
I like even Christie more after this. He isn’t pandering to the crazies who want shred the first amendment and property rights of Muslims.
All mooselimbs believe in Sharia Law, and they believe it trumps US law.
The more this big fat $@#&*($^#@)( opens his mouth to defend the indefensible, the less likely he will sell in middle America.
New Jersey may have a lot of these Muslims, but as a percentage of the voting public, they are so small that something else must be involved here. And I suspect that something else is campaign contributions from wealthy Muslims.
“But it was a follow-up question on the fear of Sharia Law that set the governor off. “Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy!” he cried. “The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,”
Either Christie is a liar or he is an historical ignoramus.
In either case, hardly a candidate for higher office or even re-election.
He should go back to his law practice where facts are less significant than how you can manipulate them.
HISTORICAL FACT is that NO society which EVER tolerated Islam escaped from eventual total Islamicization and he must know that.
He must also know that wherever Muslims have moved in large numbers in the west they have sought to implement Sharia.
He can not be ignorant of a recent study which shows that more than HALF of the Mosques in America are controlled by radical, ant-western, anti-Christian, anti-Israeli Clerics.
He can HARDLY have failed to notice that “democracy” in Islamic Nations, where Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan or anywhere else results in the imposition of Sharia Law along with all the horrific consequences for non-Muslims.
He MUST be aware of the fact, that unlike any other religious leader I have ever heard of, Mohammad robbed, enslaved and murdered other human beings with his own hands, used his “scripture” to justify it, and erncouraged his followers to emualte him. And they have done just that for the past 1300 years or so.
[after being attacked for defending Christie]
"After this guy is a judge for a year, let's have a look at his rulings. If he tries to impose Sharia Law on Passaic County, I will be the first to say that Christie made a mistake.
What I’m getting from Christie’s rant is that this new judge is a normal US law loving individual. The judge isn’t some 3rd world weirdo that will be effected by Sharia law."
A true Muslim can never swear allegiance to the Constitution, above the Koran, which makes me believe they can't truly be citizens.
a sad day, but Reality sucks.. and so does a person, sworn to protect and defend his state and society’s existence, who then turns his head to evil masquerading in the guise of a religion.
Constitution? What Constitution?
The day is coming and sooner than many would ever think possible.
Were there no non-Muslims up for appointment? What's ignorant is going out of ones way to appoint the minority du jour.
“Do all Jews believe in Jewish law as espoused in the Torah?”
Have the Jews professed, taken violent actions, killed people over it, or otherwise demanded Jewish Law?
Didn’t think so. Try again.
why didnt this bother Christie and affect his decision?
hardly a state suffered more personal tragedies than NJ from 9-11.
Christie never struck me as a PC or pander-bear kinda guy
"You said ALL Muslims. I.e. every single one. Trust me, I think that particular faith has more whack-a-doodles than every other religion combined. But to say that EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM without exception wants Sharia law imposed is a bit silly."
I bet if I said jumping out of airplane at 5,000 with no parachute will kill you, you’d be the nerd to say you know of someone that did and didn’t die, yet, you’d never jump.
I bet if I said getting shot in head will kill you, you’d be the nerd to say you know of someone that did and didn’t die, yet, you’d never volunteer to get shot in the head.
I bet if I said getting hit by a speeding car will kill you, you’d be the nerd to say you know of someone that did and didn’t die, yet, you’d never let me run you over.
BUT, I stand by my statement that Islam believes in Sharia law, you expections not withstanding.
Islam is a child-molesting mmurdering cult, and “moderate Islam” is its Trojan Horse.
From the article: "...he built bridges between the Muslim American community in this state and law enforcement..."
The only bridges I want to see between moslems and law enforcement is the ones that take "them" over there, and away from us...and gangways getting "them" onto ships and airplanes to transport them out of here.
"to say that EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM without exception wants Sharia law imposed is a bit silly."
Well then they should become Methodists or something.
When a State Transportation Employee protested the Ground Zero Mosque by burning a Koran ON HIS OWN TIME at a demonstration and was fired, Christie SUPPORTED it. He said burning a Koran was a “disgusting act.”
Well, incinerating almost 4,000 Americans was a ‘Disgusting Act” and I’m sure MOST of them wouldn’t agree with Christie about the relaive benign nature of Muslims like Sohail Mohammad, WERE THEY ALIVE TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES. NOR would MOST of them support a monument to their killers on the site of their extermination.
Mooselimbs are a blight on the world. “He is an extraordinary American..." claims Chrissy. WRONG! A Mooselimb is loyal only to the pedophile, murdering founder of the bloodthirsty cult.
Hope you enjoy!
