Christie blasts “CRAZIES” for their objection to his appointment of a Muslim judge who worked to get several Islamic terrorist suspects out of jail. Says all this “shari’a law business is just crap.”
(Christie is no Allen West, that’s for sure. But this little ‘Muslims are all wonderful’ hissy fit of Christie’s makes it more than apparent why he stubbornly refused to oppose construction of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. I guess we have to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ to you, fatboy) NOTE TO BNI READERS: Please send this story to your New Jersey friends who probably didn’t hear about it!
Mediaite – (H/T The Blaze) The New Jersey governor appointed a Muslim judge this year, something Herman Cain said he would never do (but then backtracked), and during a press conference yesterday answered questions about it.
Or more appropriately put, he delivered a trademarked, passionate tongue-lashing of those who questioned his decision.
Christie’s appointment of Muslim Sohail Mohammed to a state bench this week ruffled some feathers among some who fear the threat of Sharia Law, but when asked about those concerns, Gov. Christie made clear he had no patience for such “ignorance,” calling the complaints “crap.” Christie argued, adding that he was “disgusted, candidly, by some of the questions he was asked… at the Senate judiciary committee.”
“Ignorance is behind the criticism of Sohail Mohammed,” he told a reporter asking about the complaints that he may be inadequate to be a judge because he defended Muslims who were arrested post-9/11.
But it was a follow-up question on the fear of Sharia Law that set the governor off. “Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy!” he cried. “The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,” adding with disgust and frustration that “it’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.”
Christie being combative at a reporter is so, but it is particularly significant in that it gives one an idea of what Gov. Christie would sound like on the matter as a (now unlikely) presidential candidate.
It begs the questions: what would Gov. Christie have said on a podium across from Herman Cain while he insisted that “American law in American courts, period” was one of the more important platform issues of his campaign, or how he would respond to other states banning Sharia Law?
