The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an advocacy group linked to the terrorist group Hamas, said it would hold a press conference on Monday demanding he withdraw from the presidential race for daring to speak an opinion they do not approve of.  Of course, CAIR thinks that it is now our overlords and the final arbiter of what Americans can say or think.

Some on Twitter reacted by calling Carson racist.  Funny, I thought Islam was a religion, not a race.  Silly me.

Too late…

But they are…

No doubt these are the same kind of low-information idiots who can probably see racism in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.


So, is Islam a religion or a race?  And is it now a requirement to get CAIR’s approval before uttering a statement or holding an opinion?  It sure looks like it.

By the way, here’s video of Carson’s statement.  What do you think?  Was he out of line?
