Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a rare bird — a politician who doesn’t pull punches when talking about Islam or immigration.
It’s hard to tell what sends the Left into orbit quicker, Jindal speaking truth about Islam or Jindal being a non-white Republican while he’s doing it.
In any event, Jindal was on Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” on Tuesday when host Tony Perkins asked him about some of his previous remarks regarding Islam.
Jindal didn’t back down and reiterated his position that when Muslims, or any immigrants, come to America with no intention of adapting and every intention of changing the country’s values, then they pose a threat.
“One of the great things about America,” Jindal said, “is it doesn’t matter if you’ve been here five minutes or a hundred years, we have folks that come here, want to be Americans. They join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community. And that’s wonderful.
“What’s not acceptable is people that want to come and conquer us.”
Some would argue that’s what’s happening in many cities across America, between illegal immigrants who have snuck across our borders and growing numbers of Muslim immigrants who set up their own enclaves in places like Dearborn, Michigan, disparagingly nicknamed “Dearbornistan” due to the growing Muslim influence on local politics and society.
The greatest worry of many critics of Islam is that while some immigrants are only too happy to take advantage of our political system, they may have no intention of jumping into the melting pot and instead attempt to re-create the countries they fled from on U.S. soil, including the dominance of shariah law.
The fear is not unfounded, as Breitbart has documented the existence of an Islamic shariah law tribunal operating as a nonprofit in Texas. Compliance with that tribunal by local Muslims is voluntary, according to a tribunal lawyer, but the tribunal deals with family, workplace and business law disputes, and those sitting on the tribual are referred to as “judges.”
“That’s not immigration, by the way, that’s colonization,”Jindal said, “if someone wants to come here and change our fundamental culture and our values. If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion, if you’re honest about it.”
Jindal seems to be under no illusions about the Left’s ability to be honest with itself and with the public. But he is insistent that the situation will need to be dealt with, sooner rater than later.
“If we’re not serious about this,” Jindal read , . Wre going to see more lone wolf actors. We’re going to see more folks come into our country just like you’ve seen in other countries — the horrific shootings in Paris.”
