Sharron Angle: Sharia Law Has "Taken Hold" Here In US

Sweet Jesus, you just can't fix this level of stupid:

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?

Both Dearborn, Michigan and Frankford, Texas both have predominantly Muslim populations, but the last time anyone with a reasonable grasp on reality checked, the cities had not given over their municipal laws for Sharia law. But apparently, the presence of Muslims in such a strong plurality apparently means to Angle that American law no longer applies.

Sigh. Like I said, you just can't fix that level of stupid.
