SHE REALLY SHOULD GET OUT MORE…. Did extremist Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R) really say Sharia law has “taken hold” in some U.S. cities? Pretty much.

One of the last questioners asked about “Muslims taking over the U.S.,” including a question about Angle’s stance on the proposed mosque near Ground Zero in New York.

“We’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it,” Angle said.

“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. 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.”

I’m not entirely sure exactly what Angle’s even trying to say here. She said she doesn’t know “how that happened in the United States.” How what happened?

The implication seems to be that a “foreign system of law” has “taken hold” in Dearborn and Frankford, which is completely insane. Those communities, like every other community in the country, follow American law. Does Angle believe cities where there are a lot of Muslim Americans necessarily fall under Sharia?

She’s already made clear that she rejects the principle of church-state separation, so perhaps in her twisted worldview, predominantly Muslim cities suddenly become little theocracies unto themselves — carve-out exceptions to the First Amendment.

I really don’t think she’s well.
