[su_right_ad]Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett says any Muslim practicing Islam can’t be trusted, as is akin to Germans who were Nazis.

Bennett argued, “Mohammed’s teaching only teaches one thing. And that’s the violence that we’re seeing today in ISIS and in the beheading in Moore and other places.”

One woman challenged him and said there are nice, moderate Muslims who don’t appreciate their elected leaders calling them “no better than ISIS.” Bennett shot back, “Where are your nice friends? Why aren’t they here? Why aren’t they out there saying, ‘Hey, you know what, we don’t believe in that?’”

He made a comparison to the Nazis and basically said that any Muslim who practices the Muslim faith cannot be trusted:

“You think every German was a Nazi? No, they weren’t. But what happened with the Nazis was that once they got in power, all those Germans that sat quiet or were scared to say anything had no choice but to follow and support what they were doing. “So is every Muslim bad? No. but if they subscribe to Islam and what it teaches, and if they’re not standing up and condemning what Islam teaches, then they’re just going right along with them, just like the Germans did when the Nazis were around.”[su_csky_ad]

    Ignorance and hate are the core values of conservatism.

      Amen. and the they are getting bolder in their hatred with obvious bigotry.

      conservatives are the real threat to the Constitution. to paraphrase an old saying.

      after they take away the first amendment and article 6 rights of Muslims, you will be next unless you bow down and worship their god.

    Where was he and his friends when it was time to denounce any of these xian terrorists? I’m guessing nowhere to be found

    The Republican party platform has far more in common with Nazism than Islam does.

    Another right winger from the low end of the human gene pool heard from

    Teapublicans know they can’t really get away with publicly hating on African-Americans anymore, but hating on Muslims is an E-ticket ride straight to the GOP top.

      They still have women, the poor, the educated, unions, hispanics, aged, the ill, ……

    Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett is only a few steps away from suggesting that cattle cars and forced labor camps are the “Final Solution” to his problem with Islam.
    Who is more like a Nazi?

    one more majestic american mind – where the hell do these slime come from?

    • StoneyCurtisll October 9th, 2014 at 11:13 am

      Straight from the Republican party.

    All that red sand blowing around gets inside the brain of Oklahomans and clogs up the thinking process.

  9. tiredoftea October 9th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    OK. the caboose of the krazy train is making squeaking noises to get some attention. Nice of him to stick to his guns when a constituent pushed back.

  10. rg9rts October 10th, 2014 at 8:40 am

    Have to wonder what he thinks of the good christians??

    How can so many readers of this site be so mindless? The FACTS he gave were not hate speech; that was left to the low-information comments after the post. He rightly pointed out that since the fundamentals of that religion include violence, child, woman, and animal abuse, lying, etc., then anyone practicing that religion should be suspect. (Keep in mind, the fundamentals of a religion consists of: 1) the Founder of that religion’s teaching and following his example – in Islam that would be Mohammad – and 2)the teaching from their holy book.
    If they are truly following the fundamentals of Islam, then they will behave like Mohammad and “kill the infidel”, rape children, and believe violence, murder and suicide is their ticket into paradise. Those are words from the Koran people, get informed and read them for yourself. Yes, of course there are some “nice” muslims… these are also small minorities. As they grow in numbers anywhere in the world, so do the acts of violence, the demand for sharia, the abuse of women, and the reduction of rights of non-muslims.
    Dont get angry about facts…. GET INFORMED! !!!!!!

      If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

      Christians as Nazis? You tell me.

    • OldLefty October 11th, 2014 at 7:12 am

      The problem is with the words, “fundamentals of that religion include violence, child, woman, and animal abuse, lying, etc.”.

      Which is the same as Christianity was a few centuries ago, and which we have encouraged in the Muslim world and which the low information right wingers encourage in the Muslim world to this day.

      “Certainmen, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; 14 Then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask
      diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such
      abomination is wrought among you; 15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of
      that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is
      therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

      Meanwhile, from the ACTUAL NAZIs;

      ~ “And the founder of Christianity
      made no secret indeed of his

      estimation of the Jewish people.
      When He found it necessary,

      He drove those enemies of the
      human race out of the Temple of God.”

      [Adolph Hitler, _Mein Kampf_, pp.174]

      ~ “It may be that today gold has
      become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will
      again bow down before a higher god.”

      [Adolph Hitler, “Mein Kampf” Vol. 2 Chapter 2]

      ~ “….the personification of the
      devil as the symbol

      of all evil assumes the living
      shape of the Jew.”

      [Adolph Hitler, “Mein
      Kampf”, Vol. 1, Chapter 11,

      precisely echoing Martin
      Luther’s teachings]

      ~ “Thus inwardly armed with
      confidence in God and the unshakable

      stupidity of the voting citizenry,
      the politicians can begin

      the fight for the ‘remaking’ of
      the Reich as they call it.”

      [Adolph Hitler, “Mein Kampf” Vol. 2 Chapter 1]
