Denver Islamic law, Shariah protest gets testy

Quote:
Denver Islamic law protests draw small but testy crowds

Denver Police and a Colorado State Patrolman take down counter protesters who were protesting Anti-Shariah Law protesters at Veteran's Park across from Civic Center Park, June 10, 2017 in Denver. Four protesters were arrested.

A Denver protest Saturday over fears extremist interpretations of Islamic law will one day become the law of the land ended up producing yelling and insults, some scuffles and at least four arrests.

The Denver rally was one of more than two dozen held in American cities Saturday, organized by ACT for America, which claims Islamic law — namely Shariah — is incompatible with Western democracy. Protesters at the western steps of the State Capital claimed Shariah calls for the abuse of women and has no place in America.

They said liberals, Democrats and others are allowing Shariah to supplant the U.S. Constitution.

“I don’t understand why they want this,” said one woman, who declined to give her name. She was looking at a group of counter-protesters gathered at the sidewalk skirting Broadway.

Colorado State Troopers and Denver Police put up yellow tape around the capitol steps to keep the two sides well away from each other. Each side boasted about 150-to-175 people.

Using bullhorns, they taunted each other for about two hours under a sweltering sun. About 5 p.m.the anti-Shariah group began walking through Civic Center park, surrounded by police and yelling counter-protesters.

There were some quick confrontations and police made four arrests. Police then cleared the park while counter-protesters yelled at them.

The same basic scene was repeated in other cities throughout the country Saturday, with most confrontations happening as the protests ended.

At a park near New York courthouse, counter-protesters sounded air-horns and banged pots and pans in an effort to silence an anti-Shariah rally. In St. Paul, Minn., state troopers arrested about a half-dozen people when scuffles broke out at the close of a competing demonstration.

“Out of nowhere liquid was splashed onto my face from one of the masked individuals in the crowd. It got all in my eyes and over my face and totally reeked. The first two seconds were a little horrifying because I wasn’t sure if it was an acid attack,” Southern told Breitbart News.

Several people were arrested after fights broke out at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, although nobody was injured, according to local reports.

Sniveling cowards will always rise up to protect and cheer on the bad people who do not get fazed one bit if they are called upon to murder them.

Sharia in the US.

Of all the things that aren't gonna happen, this isn't gonna happen the most.

Our 1st Amendment is a guarantee against any sort of religious rule, Islamic or Christian or otherwise.

Yet the left wants to allow more and more Muslims in the country. Muslims have already taken over several small cities here in NJ. It is called stealth jihad.With constant immigration flow and a higher birth rate eventually we will see Sharia law on a piecemeal basis. We will be adding the suffix "stan" to cities one after another if we don't slow down Muslim immigration. These people, both liberals and Muslims, have no regard for the First Amendment. It is total hypocrisy when a leftist sites the First Amendment or any amendment in the Bill of Rights.

Nobody is saying we should exclusively allow more Muslims on the grounds that they are Muslim. So that's incorrect.

Name a city in New Jersey where the local government is controlled by a majority of representatives who are Muslim.

Or name a city in New Jersey whose general population is majority Muslim.

Or name any city in New Jersey that have incorporated Sharia Law into its local ordinances or laws.

Wrong. Just flat wrong. Also quite the broad brush.

Not really, no. It's existence just nullifies the fearmongering from those screaming about creeping Sharia Law, so it's inconvenient to the argument when a liberal, or anyone, brings up thae fact that we have our 1st Amendment protections from every set of religious law becoming the law of the land.

And don't forget, a guarantee against undesirable speech, as per the politically correct liberals.

Your flat wrong, and obviously you don't know what your talking about. In Austrailia, and most of continental Europe the Muslims in fact already have Sharia law, in one form or anther. It is only idiots like you who doubt what the Muslims have in mind for us, or any other country they are invading. In fact they count on, and require full blown idiots like you to get what they want. You idiot, Soros Fuqing robot...

The concept of Creepin' sharia is simply fear mongering at it's consrevobot finest. Remember the taxi drivers at Denver airport that would pick up drunk riders or dogs or something? Thanks to Fox creppin sharia has been a RW rallying point since. Why would you have anti Sharia protesters if this is not Sharia law in this country...perhaps it is really an anti Muslim protest?

How about not talk like a paranoid instead, and address the points I made. Thanks.

Again, the 1st Amendment protects us from being governed by a set of religious laws, whether from the Koran or the Bible or any holy book.

You say "anti Muslim protest" as if it is a bad thing.
