Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden just shocked the nation by declaring in a rare public appearance that he wishes we “taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.”
Despite Democrat attempts to completely expunge all mention of religion from schools for decades, Biden appears to believe that it’s time for a reversal.
Biden made the shocking statement at a Muslim voter summit hosted by Emgage Action on Monday, boldly going where even Democrat favorites Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were reluctant to go.
The Washington Post noted on Monday that Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, did not attend any Emgage events during her 2016 campaign and former President Barack Obama was “cautious” about doing so as well.
Biden exhibited no such caution, openly courting the organization despite the fact that it had already endorsed him in April.
“I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” Biden said. “I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It’s one of the great confessional faiths. And what people don’t realize is — one of my avocations is theology — don’t realize is we all come from the same root here in terms of our fundamental basic beliefs.”
Biden also promised to roll back President Trump’s “vile” travel ban that affects Muslim-majority countries and blamed Trump for “an unconscionable rise in Islamophobia” in America — though he did not acknowledge that the so-called “Muslim ban” is a myth.
Breitbart News reported on Monday:
There is no “Muslim ban,” and there never was. What Democrats called a “Muslim ban” was an executive order issued on January 27, 2017, that barred tourism and immigration from seven countries previously identified by the Obama-Biden administration as being particularly vulnerable to terrorism, partly because their internal record-keeping was substandard.
These seven nations — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen — happened to be Muslim-majority countries, but there was no blanket ban on Muslims from other Middle Eastern countries or large Muslim countries like Indonesia.
