Like we did in the 2016 election, we must also snuff out this type of anti-american rhetoric.
The left-wing histrionics continue in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory on Tuesday. The latest example of over-the-top rhetoric comes from Hussam Ayloush, the head of the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Ayloush suggests an Arab Spring-like overthrow of the United States Government.
According to Daniel Pipes of the Mideast Forum, “that second line is Arabic (“الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام”) for ‘The people wants to bring down the regime.’”
Not exactly subtle.
The slogan was first used during the Tunisian Revolution which kicked off the Arab Spring. It was also used frequently during the Egyptian revolution in which the regime of Hosni Mubarak was overthrown.
Despite Ayloush’s tweet, other CAIR leaders showed restraint in the face of Trump’s election.
According to The Daily Caller, Nihad Awad, the longtime CAIR executive director and Hamas sympathizer, struck a conciliatory tone.
“As citizens of this great nation, we accept the result of the democratic process that has bound us together as one nation,” Awad said. “Regardless of who won or lost yesterday’s election, American Muslims are here to stay. We are not going anywhere, and will not be intimidated or marginalized.
