    Default Why Muslims Aren't Republicans Anymore

    Frontline recently compiled a range of statistics about American Muslims, and found that an overwhelming 78 percent of them voted Republican in the 2000 presidential election, with only a thin sliver voting Democratic. Since 9/11, those numbers have flipped: The percentage of American Muslims who “lean toward the GOP” is just 11 percent.

    About Hispanic-Latino voters, I believe Newt Gingrich said something like "They look like us [on paper], but they don't look like us." Vis-a-vis the Democratic party, he continued with something like "They look like them, but they don't look like them [on paper]." Maybe the same is being said of Muslims in the U.S.

    Because Wahhabi, and Muslims using the Mosque institution as a vehicle for political change in violent fashion.
    And the Left wing's abstinence from addressing it, and blocking others from doing so.

    Western civilization is rediculous in that manner ins the way, atleast in the U.S. perceive racism.

    Yet the majority of Muslims are not Wahhabi or Arabs.

    We are talking about Muslims in the U.S. who can vote, and I believe that the majority of them are, in fact, Arabs. But the South Asian Muslims are catching up quickly.

    Muslim voters in the United States are Americans.

    Are they? How do we prove it? Or any voter for that matter, when there is no required way to do so? And the attempts to have a way is shot down as racist and bigoted all the time?

    Being a Muslim that lived in the US I'd like to ask what in the hell you are smoking.

    No, you read it wrong. My reply was to Ordie and how Muslim voters in the US are Americans. I assume, and certainly hope they are. But without some way to prove voters, of any color, creed or religion are indeed citizens, and eligible to vote, it is certainly not always a true statement that voters are Americans, or technically eligible to vote. Efforts to have such a system to guarantee that only legal citizens do vote, seems to get bowled over as racist, etc..
