Everyboy has to hate somebody sometime...

Minnesota's teabaggin' Torgerson is back... this time running as a Republican... but still speading the same hate and discontent.

Incumbent Democrat Keith Ellison is one of two Muslims in the U.S. House. Torgerson accuses Ellison of being a “radical Islamist” who “fails to oppose banning Islamic Sharia law in the United States.” Responding to the hate mongering, Ellison eloquently responds:

I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees freedom of religion for all Americans. Religious acceptance is a deeply rooted American value, and regardless of political persuasion, it’s a value we must protect.

It’s too bad that someone can obtain so much attention based on their intolerant rhetoric, especially when unemployment is above 9 percent. On the other hand, the nation will be able to see how extreme the rhetoric has become. I call on all Americans to reject religious intolerance and embrace our constitution which upholds the promise of liberty and justice for all people.

Justice for all people is a concept not understood by that element of society who spend so much time being afraid... and hating because of it.
