President Barack Obama’s nomination of Muslim Abid Riaz Qureshi to serve as a federal judge is drawing howls of protests from the right.
Right-wing conspiracy site World Net Daily has accused Qureshi, a Harvard Law grad, of being nominated because he was Obama’s classmate in an Indonesian madrassa. Obama has battled rumors of being a Muslim who attended a madrassa.
“This guy’s only qualification is the fact he sat next to Obama in a terrorist training school,” said Joseph Farah, World Net Daily CEO.
Other Republicans were concerned that Quereshi’s appointment would spark the end of the country.
Breitbart News tweeted: “Pack it up, folks. Fun country while it lasted.”
A Twitter user called Bloodylouver was even more explicit: “We need trump, these fcking muzzies r taking over and the Dems and Repubs r happy to do it.”
