"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -Cicero
Muslim Congressman: U.S. Schools Should Be Modeled After Madrassas
So who is Representative Andre Carson? Here is what Wikipedia tells us about what types of organizations he affiliates himself with, this will tell us a great deal about the man:
In the 2008 Presidential Election, Carson endorsed Senator Barack Obama in April 2008, and later won Obama's endorsement for his own May 2008 Democratic primary battle. Carson was the first member of Indiana's Congressional Delegation to announce his support for then-candidate Obama."
Also, he is the only member of Congress to serve in the Dept. of Homeland Security. That makes me feel all warm inside, how about you?
He had a famous lie to do with the Tea Party you may recall, again, according to Wikipedia:
Tea Party controversy
On March 20, 2010, Carson told reporters that health care protesters outside the Capitol hurled racial slurs at fellow Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) member Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia. Carson came off the House floor and told reporters his story about health care protesters hurling racial slurs during their walk from the Cannon Building to the chambers. Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for any proof of these accusations.Audio and video recordings of the event have been posted on the Internet, no proof has yet been provided by those who made the accusations, and the reward remains unclaimed.
Here are the elction results in his last race in 2010:
"America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our Madrassas, in our schools where innovation is encouraged. Where the foundation is the Koran," Rep. Andre Carson (D-Indiana) said at the ICNA-MAS convention at the end of May.
