John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent and right-wing conspiracy theorist who now trains law enforcement agencies around the country to identify seemingly anyone with dark skin and a beard as an Islamic terrorist, appeared on “The Glazov Gang” program last week, where he declared that two Muslim women who were elected to Congress should be banned from serving because, he absurdly claimed, only Christians can serve in Congress.
In the recent midterm elections, Democrats Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women elected to Congress, but Guandolo is declaring that as “sharia-adherent women,” they are unable to uphold the U.S. Constitution and therefore must not be allowed to take office.
“These are people who are now, I would argue, legally they cannot serve in these positions,” Guandolo said. “You cannot have somebody who is adherent to sharia serving in public office. The founders, by the way, were very clear that only Christians should hold public office, so let’s just put that out there.”
