    Exclamation Muslim vice-chair of Texas county GOP survives effort to oust him over his religion

    An attempt by a faction of the Tarrant County Republican party in Texas to oust its vice-chairman because he is a Muslim failed in an emotional party vote Thursday night.

    Shahid Shafi, a trauma surgeon and city council member, was backed in a 139-49 vote after more than two hours of closed door discussions. Cheers could be heard outside as the results were read.

    As the meeting gathered Thursday night, one of his chief critics, Sara Legvold, former member of the Texas State Republican Executive Committee, stood outside dressed in a black burqa to underscore her opposition to Shafi's appointment.

    “You already see it in the workplace where Muslims demand they’re able to wear their hijab and demand they get a prayer room,” she said, according to the Texas Tribune. “When was the last time a Christian was allowed to have a separate place to say their prayers?"

    Hard to believe that in the 21st century, a major political party in the United States has a serious, widespread, and systematic problem with Islamophobia, racism, misogyny, and anti-Semitism.

    If you’re going to virtue signal Cypress why don’t you explain the misogyny in your own party. Go back to the Bernie Bro’s of 2016 for starters. And feel free to explain your party’s association with Farakhan, the chairman of the DNC and his antisemitic past among others. Glass houses Cypress.

    From a Republican perspective the behavior toward this guy is dispicable
