Jason Rapert: Goes off again on Muslims; erupts again over Facebook edit

Sen. Jason Rapert's anti-Muslim views have won him national attention again.

Several have reported, including this website, that Rapert was posting prolifically on Facebook and Twitter after news of a bombing in New York. His posts included  Facebook.

This Facebook quote was attributed to Rapert:

Regardless of who is responsible for these events today – we need to round up every single Muslim extremist sympathizer and other anti-American crazies and detain them or deport them. And for goodness sake – stop bringing more Muslims into this nation.
Facebook apparently found Rapert's post over the line and removed it  from circulation.

The bully of Bigelow was NOT happy:

I think Mark Zuckerberg is up to this match.

In the meanwhile, Senator Rapert, the chief proponent of a Ten Commandments monument on the state Capitol grounds because of its supposed foundational role in law as opposed to religion, perhaps needs a reminder of the law of these United States:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; ...
That includes Islam, senator.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
