What is with people, and the constant social engineering by the left to normalize Islam (a religion of not so much peace)? It’s never ending but you wouldn’t maybe expect it in such an offensive way from a U.S. Congressman.
Congressman Lou Correa decided to push the envelop just a little bit more and hang a painting in his office of the Statue of Liberty, … wearing a hijab.
Conservative Fighters had this:
Congressman Lou Correa was attacked by the group, “We the People Rising,” about this painting.
A high school student painted this photograph for a student competition, he drew the lady liberty with a Muslim hijab under her seven-spiked crown.
According to The Orange County Register Correa “sees nothing objectionable in the painting”:
“You take it in the context of a lady, probably a Muslim American — with all that’s going on, she’s a proud American,” Correa stated over the phone from Jerusalem, where he was going to meetings a congressional information-gathering trip. “That’s what it says to me.”
And of course, there is pushback. OC Register:
“It’s a bad example for our congressman,” said Orange resident Mike McGertrick, an activist with We the People Rising. “He shouldn’t have anything religious in his office. … I would like to see our Congress people be right-down-the-line patriotic.”
McGertick went farther in his condemnation during a July 3 meeting with Correa’s district director, Claudio Gallegos, calling the hanging of the painting in the office “reprehensible and disrespectful.”
“In this day and age, we want to see that our elected officials are the utmost of patriotism,” McGertick says in a video the group recorded and posted on YouTube.
Maybe this guy needs to be primaried. Just sayin’.
