No. Just. No. It is downright unAmerican to support oppressing people because of their religion.
Paul Nehlen, who is challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s first congressional district, said on “Chicago’s Morning Answer” that he wonders why we have any Muslims in the country.
He actually told the that there should be a discussion of throwing Muslims out of the country. All Muslims.
When he was asked whether he would support deporting every Muslim from the country, Nehlen told hosts Amy Jacobson and Dan Proft: “I’m suggesting we have a discussion about it. That’s for sure. I am absolutely suggesting we figure out how do we, we — here’s what we should be doing. We should be monitoring every mosque. We should be monitoring all social media.”
Paul Nehlen has made his business experience the centerpiece of his primary campaign against House Speaker Paul Ryan, but while he claims to be a “Wisconsin small business owner,” there is no evidence that his business has ever actually done business in Wisconsin…or anywhere else, for that matter.
“I’ve got a factory up in Beaver Dam,” Nehlen said. “I started out as a maintenance mechanic at 18 years old. I eventually ran that business; I ran businesses all around the country. I’m an engineer, I’m an inventor. I’ve got U.S. patents, I’ve got foreign patents. I was in charge of Europe, the Middle East and Africa for a Fortune 500 (company). I’ve run businesses in Mexico, Canada, China. I know about business and about trade. I’ve made payrolls. Paul Ryan’s driven the Wienermobile, for god’s sakes. So for him to suggest he’s got the solution to small businesses, as he wrote in his op-ed for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that’s offensive to small business owners.”
