Former General Jerry Boykin, now with  the Family Research Council, was speaking on Tony Perkins’ radio show.

After host Tony Perkins warned that Muslim-Americans are “not assimilating into the broader American culture” and instead seek to establish “closed communities” in states like Minnesota and Michigan, Boykin insisted that it has gotten so bad that the police now refuse to go into Dearborn, Michigan, except for in cases of emergency.

“Talk to the police in Dearborn, talk to the police in Detroit, and ask them how often they go into Dearborn and the reality is it’s more on an emergency basis than it is for any kind of routine police activities there,” Boykin said. “We have the same problem here, by not assimilating these people, we are creating the same kind of situation that France and Britain and much of Europe has.”…

Dearborn has been the focus of many right-wing conspiracy theories which typically center around the myth that the city is ruled according to Sharia law. Boykin once said that Dearborn could be easily confused with Damascus.

Dearborn, of course, is not under Sharia law, as the city’s mayor politely explained to Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle when she made that claim in 2010.[su_center_ad]

    I’m just going to throw this out there and say maybe the people in the community don’t commit any crimes and that they don’t want the police killing them when they’re outside w/a skeery looking rake, caulking gun, or portable drill in their hand. IDK

    • rg9rts January 10th, 2015 at 1:02 am

      There is only one place that I know of that the police are reluctant to enter and its not because they are muslims

  2. Steve January 9th, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    That’s what you get for not taking care of your people. Cheap land and poverty situations allowed this to happen. We have no one, but ourselves, to blame…

    • edmeyer_able January 9th, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      Uhh.. just what are you blaming yourself for, if anyone is to blame it’s Obama……/s

  3. Mephistophiles January 9th, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    Just because it sounds like a right-wing conspiracy, doesn’t make it untrue.

    • edmeyer_able January 9th, 2015 at 6:58 pm

      What do you suggest drones and hellfire missles?

      • Mephistophiles January 9th, 2015 at 7:09 pm

        I’m not quite sure how you could come to that conclusion from my post.

        • edmeyer_able January 9th, 2015 at 7:12 pm

          Couldn’t follow your link so what are you suggesting in your post?

    • Carla Akins January 9th, 2015 at 7:23 pm

      But this did not occur in Dearborn, but in London. The Muslim community in Michigan is significant, but so are the Sikh’s and Catholics. The Muslim’s are not planning a coup to rule the mighty kingdom of Dearborn.

      • Mephistophiles January 12th, 2015 at 8:35 am

        That’s true, this isn’t in London, and I’d take anything said by a Right-wing nut with a huge pinch of salt, for instance, I’ve seen a story today where it’s been reported that Birmingham, UK is exclusively Muslim, and whites cannot go there – being from the UK myself, I know this to be nonsense.

        My wider point was that this can – and does – happen in Western liberal democracies with large Muslim populations. Clearly not all Muslims are as extreme as the people trying to implement Sharia law on the streets on London (or wherever), and these people would be an embarrassment to the vast majority. However, a light needs to be shone on the areas where it does happen, so the problem can be tackled, not least by the community/religion/culture in which it originates.

    • bpollen January 11th, 2015 at 10:53 pm

      Apparently, we also have to worry about Christian Terrorists in Dearborn, because they are religious extremists operating in a totally different area. Kinda like your statement saying claims about Dearborn are true cuz LONDON!

      • Mephistophiles January 12th, 2015 at 8:22 am

        Show me where I said that ‘claims about Dearborn are true’.

        You seem to have a problem with reason and comprehension.

        • bpollen January 13th, 2015 at 6:47 am

          You said “doesn’t make it untrue.”

          You then posted a link about something happening somewhere else as evidence that maybe it’s not untrue. Kinda disingenuous to claim that you weren’t implying that this piece of xenophobic crapola by Boykin shouldn’t be lent some credence.

          And for someone claiming to be the Dark One, your insults are really kinda limp.

          • Mephistophiles January 13th, 2015 at 8:26 am

            So in your skewed logic, “doesn’t make it untrue” = ‘claims about Dearborn are true’.

            …as I said – problems with reason and comprehension.

            I think I’ve explained myself fully further in this thread to more rational, reasonable, and less arrogant people than yourself, so I think we’re done here.

          • bpollen January 13th, 2015 at 4:01 pm

            Baffled by a double-negative, I see.

            Bye-bye now, Beelzebubbie!

  4. Carla Akins January 9th, 2015 at 7:16 pm

    I don’t understand how people like Angle, Boykin and even Perkins can be allow such talk. Feeding the fear and bias of the uneducated and uninformed has a very real impact on this city, and this it’s ability to rebound economically. It’s essentially slander.

  5. Chinese Democracy January 9th, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    So stupid. Extreme bigotry gives me gas . Reminds me of a while back out here in Los Angeles . A group was yelling at Muslims . MUSLIM GO HOME! NO SHARIA! .. Home happened to be right down the street it was a block meeting.

  6. Suzanne McFly January 9th, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    I wish people quit putting microphones up to the mouths of morons. Nothing good ever comes from it and no one comes out looking smart.

    • Alex Magee January 24th, 2015 at 3:23 am

      Except for the people who get their jollies from pointing out how stupid and misinformed these morons are on social media.

      • Suzanne McFly January 24th, 2015 at 4:32 pm

        Too bad their “followers” refuse to catch on to how stupid their idols are.

  7. OldLefty January 9th, 2015 at 7:34 pm

    When it comes to these people, I’ll take my que from Barabra Bush;

    “Why should I waste my beautiful mind ?”

    Former First Lady Barbara Bush said of the war in Iraq: “Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It’s not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?”

    Jerry Bonkers is right! They’re everywhere! It’s gotten so bad that I’m afraid to open my closet for fear that a Sharia spouting Muslim will tumble out!

    • StoneyCurtisll January 11th, 2015 at 1:22 pm

      Allah Ackbar~!

    • bpollen January 11th, 2015 at 10:44 pm

      Oh, please, come out of the closet! It gets better…

  9. VALERIE MARTIN January 9th, 2015 at 11:30 pm

    That is so much BullSh*T!!!
    My daughter lived in Dearborn.
    Their children go to school with ours.
    We shop at the same stores.
    We eat at the same restaurants.
    It’s really a melting pot.
    Much different than 30-40 years ago when
    Dearborn was ALL White.
    The cops in Dearborn seemed to have
    1 purpose only, make sure there were
    NO BLACKS there!!
    I like it much better now……………..
    I’ll bet this guy has NEVER set foot in Dearborn!

    • chilly1952 January 10th, 2015 at 9:03 am

      Yes, someone who actually knows something about Dearborn. Dearborn’s infamous mayor Orville Hubbard who rained for 36 years back in the 1940’s through 1970’s was known for barring Blacks from moving into Dearborn. That was the true disgrace of Dearborn, Michigan. Yes, you do see women wearing burkas, otherwise it is a normal suburban American city.
      What is misunderstood is that most of the Arab-Americans in the area are not Muslim but are Christians, such as the Chaldeans and Maronites.

      • VALERIE MARTIN January 10th, 2015 at 12:47 pm

        YeS! & not only were Blacks not allowed
        to live in Dearborn, they were not allowed
        to BE in Dearborn, period!

  10. rg9rts January 10th, 2015 at 12:59 am

    Why do morons like that get any coverage ???

  11. bpollen January 10th, 2015 at 6:00 am

    He’s really gone off the deep end since he and Tom broke up…

  12. StoneyCurtisll January 11th, 2015 at 1:21 pm

    With Generals like Boykin, it’s no wonder we cant win a war.

  13. Sam January 12th, 2015 at 3:27 pm

    (Sharia law.?)
    Now I understated from time to time both sides lie or twist the truth to make their claims ,
    But when the right wingers get caught red handed in a pants on fire lie…,,…….
    They Just keep repeating the lie.

    • Alex Magee January 24th, 2015 at 3:21 am

      just like the fox terrorism ‘expert’ who claimed that birmingham (england) was off limits to non muslims. Pah, I doubt that these morons could tell the difference between a Israeli and a Palestinian. Freedom of speech is one thing, blatant fiction another.
