Larry Klayman Demands Obama ‘Put The Koran Down’
You can always rely on publicity-hog Larry Klayman, who was sighted yesterday at the
Sons of the Confederacy Tea Party protest outside the White House, to bring his special brand of calculated crazy to the discourse:
[Klayman] claimed that President Barack Obama “bows down to Allah” and does not represent “we the people.”
The Tea Party and conservatives have been criticized for years for conflating President Obama and the Muslim religion. Despite the president’s frequent insistence that he is a Christian, some members of the right refuse to believe him and have even passed bans on Sharia Law around the country in the wake of his election.
“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come up with his hands out,” said Klayman.
Klayman was among protesters and veterans fighting the closure of the WWII memorial during the ongoing government shutdown. The barricades of the memorial were broken and some were left in front of the White House.
Polarizing Republican senator Ted Cruz joined the demonstration as well as former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
