Congratulations to David Ramadan

David Ramadan has won the Republican primary for the 87th District in Virginia. David is a conservative Republican and I probably disagree with him on most issues, but he deserves kudos for his victory especially in the light of a vicious opposition campaign by Jo-Ann Chase, whose entire platform was one large smear campaign accusing David Ramadan of being a jihadist.

In general the Republican Party has been hostile to muslims, to the point where Republican muslims like Rima Sinclair and Suhail Khan have been disgracefully slandered and vilified.

That’s all the more reason to celebrate and congratulate David Ramadan on his victory two days ago – it is important for muslim Americans to have a wide political dynamic range and not become too tied down to the Democrats and the left. If the GOP is able to overcome its Muslim Problem then that will be a good thing for muslims, Republicans, and the country as a whole.

Also, David Ramadan’s last name is “Ramadan”, so this post counts as part of my Ramadan series. Ha!
