Dearborn Mayor Launches Reality Grenade on Sharron Angle

Dearborn Mayor John O’Reilly fired off a letter to Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle, saying she is “misled” about his city. O’Reilly invited Angle to visit Dearborn, where there has been a Muslim mosque for 90 years and they are nowhere near under “Sharia law” or a situation of “militant terrorism”. They mayor explained that people in his community by and large try to work together and Angle might want to visit before she slanders the city again. This is called laying down a reality check for careless, reckless fear mongers and liars.

Here’s the mayor on WXYZ, the ABC affiliate in Detroit:

As you might recall, this all started when Angle said:

“We’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe it isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it. My thoughts are these, first of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas are on American soil, and under constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States,” she said. “It seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with allowing a foreign system of law to even take hold in any municipality or government situation in our United States.””

Dearborn’s Mayor O’Reilly responded by launching a bit ‘o reality Angle’s way:

“This is the most absurd, inane answer I’ve ever heard. And she was led by the questioner, but should have been mature enough to say I don’t think that’s happening….The last census revealed that only thirty percent of the population in Dearborn is Arab American….Nobody is trying to control Dearborn. Muslims have been in Dearborn, there has been a mosque in Dearborn for 90 years. So the notion that there’s this new phenomenon and Muslims are taking over America is certainly not substantiated in this community.”

In his letter to Angle, O’Reilly then reiterated his offer for Angle to visit Dearborn. O’Reilly said he has not heard from Angle yet.

If Angle is qualified to run for senate (oh, I jest – there are no qualifications this year — all you have to do is say “I am you”), she should have guessed that a city with a mayor with the last name of O’Reilly has probably not been taken over by Muslims quite yet. But perhaps she fears the Irish, too. Wait till Bill-O hears about this.

Here’s hoping Angle takes O’Reilly up on his offer, but he shouldn’t hold his breath. I hear ignorance is all the rage this year.

  1. Where are these IDIOTS getting this Sharia law BS? I think this is planting the seed…”Obama” is scary, bla,bla,bla, all their other BS I expect will fade away after they Lose the elections in Nov. but I think this will prevail. And we know who will be mouthing off about it….And she better STFU if she knows what’s smart b/c she will get the JoeMiller, SharonAngle, ChristdineO’donell treatment. All her “gates” exposed!

  2. Please Sarah, I lived in Michigan for 50 years. I don’t want her contaminating that beautiful state. Get a grip!

    Besides I brought the Sharia law to Tennessee when I moved here.

  3. Don’t worry, Sharron wouldn’t educate herself via traveling to Dearborn unless she thought she could get money for it. Learning isn’t a driving force on the Right.

    It’s ironic that Sharron is the one trying to implement something close to Sharia law, but I fear she is too ignorant to understand just how outrageous she is.

  4. Her claims that Sharia law has had an impact on Frankford, TX and Dearborn, MI make her either an ignorant fearmonger, a liar or both. It’s good that this mayor called her on her own bull. But he shouldn’t hold his breath. People like Angle like to drop stuff like this, get some media coverage and then walk away. I’m still waiting for Sean Hannity to get waterboarded.

  5. Again the TROLL has nothing intelligent to say.. not surprising..

    I learned something the other day on History channel I believe it was. I learned that Muslims believe in the virgin Mary and they believe in her son Jesus too, that he’s an equally important prophet of god (equal to Mohammed that is), they just don’t believe that he was the son of god himself. The Koran also apparently has portions of the old testament and new testament in addition to the teachings of the prophet Mohammed. I also learned that there are far too many ways to interpret the Koran, for every good answer, there apparently is an equally bad one if you wish to interpret it that way anyways.

    Kind of neat to learn they aren’t so different than Christians when you boil it down. Same god, same books, same chapters with some added stuff. It’s like Christian 2.0 *shrug* Just sucks that everyone keeps killing each other over the same effing Deity.

    Personally I think religion in general is secretly evil disguised as good words or good intentions – has to be considering all the death and misery it causes people around the world. You read “love thy neighbor” in the bible and then go kill them cause they don’t happen to read the same exact book, or they don’t believe in part of your religion, though they believe in 75-90% of it and it’s the same God.

  6. smarg..what a waste of good hard earned money. But then again. Its your hard earned money and future. I mean really..lets get real serious now. You really think this woman is someone you would want to see in the senate? or in any political office? really? You don’t think she’s coming out of left field just a tad with all these rediculous lies and wild assertions–like Shria law in Dearborn? My gawd does the right never stop lying so blatantly? So then, you’re voting for this whacked out lady because she’s not Reed and not black? And this is going to benefit you and your do you have girls? Pray to God not. Because ms angle would have you raise a baby that was a product of a traumatic rape and make lemonade out of the situation–like she said. Would you do that? PROBABLY NOT! I’m sure you’de make sure they got the abortion. She and palin disgust me! its easy for them to say that a woman should keep a child out of a traumatic rape. AND YET we all know that angle palin bachman ..any of them…would never ever keep a child as a result of rape –especially if that rapist was any darker than a shade of pale. THATS THE TRUTH and they know it! These women like to dictate what you should do in any given situation..but they would never do the same. THEY ARE FRICKEN LIARS AND FAKES. And I think I speak for millions of women when I say they are a disgrace TO ALL WOMEN in America! They are dumbing down the far right ladies to believe their ignorant crap too. I feel for them. And once again angle is using this Sharia lie to freak out the seniors –and they will fall for it. Palin will be the next one on this subject. She loves a good lie. She loves to scare the holy crap out of the seniors too–even though she herself actually let over 200 of them die in Alaska WITH HER VERY OWN REAL DEATH PANELS. Thats why she needs to put that on Obama so you can forget she did it!

  7. if anything rules Dearborn, it’s Ford.

    But so what. :) come to Dearborn, have some shish kabobs and build something useful…
