For Ramadan, Tolerance is a One Way Street
Remember a year ago when the debate was raging over then-candidate David Ramadan’s religious persuasion? Remember how the nuts of the Anti-Sharia Task Force screamed that he couldn’t possibly represent “true” Americans because he was a Muslim and the Muslim faith was fundamentally at odds with an obligation to faithfully execute the laws of Virginia and the United States? Remember how ridiculous all that was?
Ramadan sure doesn’t.
In voting against the confirmation of an openly homosexual nominee for a district court judgeship on the basis of his sexual preference, or even his perceived inability to apply Virginia laws on same sex marriages because of his sexual preference, Ramadan is every bit as guilty of the bigotry and prejudice of which he himself was the victim only one year ago.
Of all the “no” votes on the nominee, Ramadan’s stands out as the most hypocritical and disgusting of them all.
