The lean to the left in this country is, well, despicable.
People are so worried about being politically correct and not offending the LGBTQ community or the illegal immigrants living here or minority religious groups, they are putting the concerns of actual citizens and residents at risk.
Well, Dave Lawson, a military veteran and state Senator for Delaware, was in a situation where the Quran was being read prior to a state Senate meeting in April 2017, and he finally hit his breaking point.
Lawson is an Air Force Veteran and did his tour of duty in Vietnam.
After the session opened with a prayer from the Quran, Lawson stood up to protest the reading.
He stated, “We just heard from the Quran, which calls for our very demise.
“I fought for this country, not to be damned by someone that comes in here and prays to their God for our demise.
“I think that’s despicable.”
What you did not see in that video is the end of the session, when Lawson was actually called out for speaking his mind.
Then-Delaware Senate President Pro Tempore David McBride (D-New Castle) ended the session by ripping Lawson.
He stated, “I have never been of the mind to censure the words of other members, but I also believe deeply that words have consequences.
“To criticize the sacred prayer of another religion from the floor of the Senate strikes me as antithetical to everything we ought to stand for as lawmakers.”
McBride went on to say, “I am personally offended that our guests from the Muslim community and anyone else here in the chamber today would feel anything less than welcomed with opened arms.
“And for our guests today to be branded as anti-American when our First Amendment of our country’s Constitution explicitly guarantees the freedom of religion is both ironic and deeply sad to me.”
When McBride stated that he was “hopeful we can move past this sad chapter in the body’s history,” Lawson told him he was “ignorant to what’s going on.”
