This same thing is happening with Democrats opposing legislation against female genital mutilation in Minnesota — the islamization of America.
And Minnesota doctors recently charged with mutilating the genitals of little girls are claiming it is a religious Islamic right. And the left is taking up the fight for the savages.
Perhaps they are taking this tack because the American Academy proposed a resolution to
sanction a “ritual [clitoral] nick” back in 2010. As I warned at the
time, and we see now how right I was, such a resolution would give
Islamic misogyny the seal of approval by the American Academy of Pediatrics, no less. The sanction of clitordectomies, the sanction and norming of evil. We defeated that proposal, but female genital mutilation continued apace because of the increase in Muslim immigration.
