Illinois Congressman Apologizes to Muslims for Being Discriminated Against


Mike Quigley, the Democrat Congressman from the Chicago area’s 5th Congressional District thinks he needs to apologize for America. Why? Well, because we have been so darn evil towards Muslims and all, dontcha know? And why are we so mean to Muslims? It’s because Republicans want to cut the budget.

It looks like Quigley has taken a page out of President Obama’s world apology tour playbook by going back to his district to attend the American Islamic College Conference in Chicago where he felt compelled to apologize for America.

After a long winded wind up saying that the “war” we are experiencing between the diverging ideas about the economy is an “ideological war,” and it’s one that is causing us to somehow lash out against Muslims! Never mind that Muslims declared war on the U.S. long before the U.S. had any major economic troubles. He capped that surreal assessment with his grand apology…

And I think it’s important to apologize on behalf of this country for the discrimination you have faced.

It is as if there never was anything like 9/11 and nativist Americans are merely taking their economic fears out on Muslims. And not only is it bizarre that Quigley blames the economy for our being mean to Muslims, but it is a flat out lie that it is even happening.

According to the FBI, hate crimes against Muslims are still tiny in percentage. In fact, hate crimes against Jews have risen in the U.S. comparatively. So, far from Americans turning against Muslims, maybe Quigley should be apologizing for the attacks on Israel. He could start by apologizing for his president who has become the most anti-Israel president since the country was reborn.
