Meanwhile, in commentary you won’t find on MSNBC…
Sheriff David Clarke appeared on Fox Business News last night to talk about Dr. Ben Carson’s comments regarding the possibility of a Muslim presidency.
“Only a moron didn’t understand what Dr. Ben Carson was saying,” Clarke said, while wearing a cowboy hat for some reason. “Look, I agree with him that Sharia law is incompatible with our constitutional republic here in the United States.”
That’s a good point. We don’t know of anything in the U.S. Constitution that says that our government should behead people who don’t convert to Islam.
Clarke went on to say that, according to his limited knowledge of Sharia law, it governs public behavior, personal behavior, and personal thought. Our Constitution, on the other hand, gives us quite a bit of freedom in those areas.
The sheriff also expressed concern that GOP candidates continue to “take the bait” from the mainstream media regarding questions that are meant to make them look bad. He said that Carson should have deflected that question and instead talked about his vision for America.
