Dem Rep. Invites Right-Wing Leader To Visit Non-Existent ‘No-Go Zones’ In Minneapolis

I'm askeered of Muslims.

Those scary ‘no-go zones’ are popping up worldwide, according to Republicans. Even Fox News’ pundits have apologized for allowing someone to propagate that lie on their network and allow the claim to go unchallenged.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins claims that several neighborhoods in Minneapolis, along with the entire city of Dearborn, Michigan, have become “no-go zones” where Sharia law has effectively replaced the authority of the U.S. government, Right Wing Watch reports.

That’s right, the entire city of Dearborn is under siege by skeery Muslims.

Perkins has now been given the opportunity to see the mythical “no-go zones.”

Rep. Keith Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, invited Perkins to check out these Muslim invaded areas in Minneapolis which totally do not exist.

Dear Mr. Perkins:

I am writing regarding your recent comments about my hometown. As you know, I represent the 5th district, of Minnesota which includes most of Minneapolis. You recently said that you believe parts of our city are so called “no-go zones” where state and federal laws are subordinate to Sharia Law. Having lived in Minneapolis for over two decades, I can assure you this is not true. But I would like you to come see firsthand that Minneapolis is an inclusive and thriving city completely under the jurisdiction of local, state, and federal authorities. The Muslim Americans in Minneapolis help make our vibrant and diverse place to live.

If you accept my invitation it may represent an important step toward interfaith understanding. I would be glad to organize meetings with local and federal enforcement as well as community leaders.

I wonder where Perkins first heard this claim? Governor Bobby Jindal has been taking a lot of heat lately for also buying into this falsehood. But, he’s sticking by debunked claims anyway. A village somewhere is missing their idiot.
