Joe Biden: ‘I Wish’ More ‘Islamic Faith’ Was Taught in US Schools
Former vice president makes remarks during 'Million Muslim Votes Summit'
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he wishes that Islamic faith was taught more in American schools.
The former vice president made the remarks during a speech a the Emgage Action’s virtual “Million Muslim Votes Summit."
“Look, one of the things that I think is important is I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith," Biden said.
"I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths — it’s one of the great confessional faiths, and what people don’t realize is one of my avocations is theology, don’t realize is that we all come from the same root here in terms of our fundamental basic beliefs."
"And I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity, for being engaged, for committing to action this November,” Biden added.
“You’re doing what has never been done before," Biden said.
"You’re registering and turning out more than 1 million Muslim voters this November," Biden continued.
"It matters. Your voice — your voice — is your vote, your vote is your voice,” Biden stated.
Biden's comments come just days after former New York Governor George Pataki warned radical leftists were influencing the Presidential nominee.
Pataki said Biden was being controlled by progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders
"I’ve been disappointed by the ability of the leftist activists in the party like Bernie Sanders and [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez to apparently influence him in real and significant ways,” Pataki said.
“The Biden, who was the moderate Democrat for a long time serving in Congress, might not be the Biden who we would see as president,” he added.
Neon nettle reported last week that Biden's proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 vowed to flood America's suburban communities with immigrants and forcing low-income housing into the area.
The Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations are seeking to grant immediate amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for 22 million illegal aliens.
The proposal also aims to grant legal status to all the world’s refugees, regardless whether their claim is legitimate or not.
More evidence that far-left Democrats are influencing Biden is his recent pledge to limit ICE’s ability to deport criminals in local jails, expand sanctuary locations, and reverse deportations for some military veterans ousted because of criminal records.
