Race for DNC Chair heats up

And brings out the inner stupid in some people:

“His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him,” Tolliver wrote. “Muslims discriminate against gays. Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it. In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.”

“Clearly, Mr. Ellison is not the person to lead the DNC or any other organization committed to not discriminating based on gender identity or sexual orientation,” Tolliver continued. “I’m shocked [the Human Rights Campaign] has been silent on the issue. A vote for Representative Ellison by any member of the DNC would be divisive and unconscionable, not to mention counterproductive to the immediate and necessary steps of rebuilding the Democratic Party.”

And before you ask, Mr. Tolliver is no longer on the list of approved candidates for DNC Chair, and rightly so. Do I need to list all of the reasons attacking someone’s religious affiliation is wrong and inherently un-American? Or that it is a quintessential ad hominem attack, not worthy of even being debated? I didn’t think so. But this idiocy is bleeding into NC political circles, so be very careful which groups you associate with and/or encourage friends to associate with:
