Louisiana Republican candidate says boycott Muslim businesses
You couldn’t get away with saying this about any other religion.
Michael “Duke” Lowrie, a firefighter and paramedic, is a Republican running for the Louisiana House of Representatives. He also believes that the United States should boycott businesses owned by or employing Muslims, according to a report in the Shreveport Times.
Lowrie announced his decision to seek election on Thursday, and by Friday afternoon, he was answering for a 2015 Facebook post in which he said that he did not intend to patronize businesses that had anything to do with Islam…
“The fact is the Islamist seek to kill us and make us submit to their false religion and God,” he wrote in a Facebook post from Nov. 15, 2015. “There are many who worship, if you call it that, Islam here among us. I do not believe they deserve peace of our culture or the continued fruits of our society while following this religion. I for one will no longer knowingly go to or do business with any establishment that has someone who I know is a follower of Islam working there.”
