Shahid Shafi’s Bogus Journey
Up north, Tarrant County Republican party vice-chairman, Shahid Shafi, has survived an ouster attempt led by precinct chair and crazy person Dorrie O’Brien, who demanded the trauma surgeon’s removal from his post because he is–wait for it–a Muslim.
She insists it’s not because he’s Muslim, but because he is connected to “Islamic terror groups”, but as she was unable to provide a shred of evidence to back that libel up, we’re going to go with “because he’s a Muslim” because she said it’s because he’s a Muslim:
“We don’t think he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S., in Tarrant County, and in the TCGOP".
“Practicing Muslim”. My goodness.
We’d venture to guess not all Republicans in her precinct are ignorant xenophobes either, but that hasn’t motivated O’Brien to step down. Going out on a limb, we’re also guessing self-examination might not be a strong point for her.
She went on, via the Facebook, to suggest that Shafi might be running a liberal sleeper cell in addition to his terrorist connections by stating that "there are big questions surrounding exactly where Dr. Shafi’s loyalties lie, vis a vis Democrat and Republican policies.” OMG
Tarrant County GOP Chair, Darl Easton, laid out the case in straightforward language, saying that O’Brian’s attempt “is about religious prejudice,” and went on to explain her coalition’s motivation to remove Shafi: “[He’s] very active with the party, but most of the people don’t even care about what he’s done... Most of them already have a prejudice against Muslims, and a lot of that comes from the attack on 9/11 and the Shariah law they claim all Muslims must obey.”
Shafi issued a response to O’Brian’s charges, which, in retrospect, looks exactly like the kind of thing a secret Dem would write! Look at this liberal propaganda:
