Mary Young, an Orange County GOP official and volunteer to Donald Trump’s campaign, broadly attacked Muslims in a Facebook post, among other things writing in all capital letters, “I DO NOT WANT ANY TYPE OF MUSLIMS IN OUR COUNTRY, PERIOD!”
OC Register The comments were promptly condemned by county ‘dhimmi’ Republican Party Chairman Fred Whitaker, who said they did not reflect the position of the local or national party — or the position of Trump. (But it reflects the position of most Americans)
Young was elected by area Republicans to serve on the county GOP’s governing Central Committee. She cannot be removed from office by party officials, but Whitaker said the party’s executive committee would meet to determine the “appropriate response.”
Young’s comments, which the Laguna Niguel resident later deleted on Facebook, come at a time when some say that Trump has emboldened anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim incidents and comments. (No, he’s just made it OK not to be politically correct anymore)
Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Anaheim office of the designated terrorist group CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations), said that recent reports of such hate incidents are the most since his group began tracking complaints. He said the national CAIR office has received 120 such complaints since the Nov. 8 election and that the Saudi-funded Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes, has tallied 700 around the country.
He called on Young to resign from the Central Committee because of her Facebook comments. “It’s the very definition of anti-Muslim bigotry, which has been normalized and fueled by the Trump campaign,” Ayloush said. (Get used to it)

In a tweet (below) 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.’”
