Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett (R) made news last week when he warned people to watch out for those who call themselves “Muslim American.”
“Be especially wary if you’re a Christian,” Bennett stated on a Facebook post, which he linked to a story about murders committed by the terrorist group ISIS.
“The Quran clearly states that non-Muslims should be killed,” added Bennett.
He later told The Oklahoman, "We must shine a bright light on the role of the Muslim Brotherhood and its varied tentacles in the U.S. These tentacles include unindicted co-conspirators of the U.S. vs. Holyland Foundation trial like the Council on American-Islamic Relations here in Oklahoma. Our borders are wide open to drug and human traffickers. Terrorism could come to Oklahoma just as easily.”
However, Bennett failed to note that "unindicted co-conspirator" means that someone (or an entity) who has not been charged with a crime. This practice is frowned upon by the United States' Attorneys Manual.
Bennett slammed Muslims again on Monday night during a meeting of Republican voters (video below).
When asked if he would apologize for last week's Facebook posting, Bennett said, “No. Because I’m right, and they know I’m right.”
“CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) used political pressure to make me back down, but I didn’t and I’m not going to,” added Bennett, noted Tulsa World.
Bennett also gave a presentation on American Muslims: "Their goal is the destruction of Western civilization from within. This is a cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out."
“We need to share [Jesus’] story, love others and stand for freedom,” added Bennett. “I love each and every one of them, but I’m not going to stand back and let them push Islam into our nation.”
Bennett got numerous ovations from the anti-Islam GOP crowd.
Attendee Alan Beard told Tulsa World that he is “100 percent in agreement with what John said, and I stand behind him.You just have to look at other countries like England and Australia where they’ve gotten a foothold."
“Islam has no place in these United States,” said a female attendee.
Neither Bennett or any of his attendees mentioned that the majority of terrorist attacks in America have been carried out by non-Muslim Americans, according to a report by the FBI, noted Loonwatch.com.
