Illinois GOP State Senator since 1993, Dave Syverson, recently posted an anti-Muslim joke to his Facebook page:

THE ‘OFFENSIVE’ JOKE: “Father Daughter Talk…My daughter just walked in the room and said, ‘Dad, cancel my allowance, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out, take my TV, iPhone, iPod, and my laptop. Please take all my jewelry. Then sell my car, take my house key. And write me out of your will.’ Well, she didn’t put it like that…she actually said…’Dad this is my new boyfriend, Mohammed from Iran.”

Of course, Terrorist Front Group CAIR have their panties in a wad and are advising people as follows: These are the sorts of jokes that Syverson finds entertaining and thinks are appropriate to post to his Facebook page, which he uses to represent himself to his constituents. This suggests that Syverson is willing to promote racist and offensive jokes to his followers.  Syverson refuses to apologize, not wanting to bend to “political correctness.” (Good for him!)

ACTION: Contact Dave Syverson’s office and tell him that as a public servant what he posted was unacceptable and he cannot defend racist sentiments — even jokes. Request that he make an immediate apology to anyone that he offended tell him that as a public servant what he posted was hysterical and not racist at all because, as we all know, Islam is not a race. Request that he never apologize to anyone who is offended because the first amendment protects speech that some might find offensive. And tell him not to cave to the terrorist tactics of CAIR.
