Here we go again.
The Council on American Islamic Relations has learned that Toms River school board member Dan Leonard has a Facebook page and they don’t like what is on it.
“This kind of mockery that was exhibited is very intimidating and not indicative of the kind of nurturing environment we want our children to grow up in.” – Jim Sues CAIR Exec. Director, New Jersey
Leonard has called Ilhan Omar a “terrorist . . . . 100%”, and about Rep. Rashida Tlaib that “My life would be complete if she/they die ….”
But most problematic to Sues is the Sharia Barbie with a hijab and facial bruises.
“It definitely implied she had been the victim of domestic violence and was going to be the victim of a stoning which are some common screeds that people use to defame Muslims.” – Jim Sues
It goes without saying that CAIR appears to be more concerned with people commenting on the status of women under Islam than they are in confronting the actual problem.
This is yet again another example of CAIR attacking Americans on TV, and demanding their resignation at a rate greater than once a month.

And now Dan Leonard

CAIR-NJ Calls for Resignation of Board of Education Member Who Shared Anti-Muslim, Racist Posts
(SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ, 7/23/2019) — The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) today called for the resignation of Toms River Board of Education member Dan Leonard who shared racist and Islamophobic posts on his Facebook account.
Leonard, who chairs the “Safety, Security and Transportation Committee” of the Toms River Board of Education shared a post depicting an image of Freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib with caption, “My life would be complete if she/they die. . .”
Other posts include an image of a bruised Barbie doll in a headscarf with the meme “Sharia Barbie, Comes with Jihab [sic], bruises, & Quran, Stoning accessories available for additional purchase.” and an image of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar with the comment, “Terrorist. . .100%.” [NOTE: "Jihab” is an apparent reference to the Islamic head scarf, or "hijab.”]

“The bigoted, hateful and threatening social media posts shared by this elected board of education official serve to disqualify him for any position that has responsibility for the safety, security and well-being of New Jersey’s diverse student body,” said CAIR-NJ Executive Director James Sues. “The bigoted views expressed by Mr. Leonard have no place in an educational system that seeks to celebrate diversity and encourage students of all faiths and backgrounds to excel scholastically and to make positive contributions to our society. This is just a painful reminder of the extreme divisiveness that characterizes the current political climate at the national level.”
He noted that CAIR offers anti-bullying and bystander intervention workshops, as well as a free series of guides to explain relevant Muslim religious practices to employers, educators, healthcare providers, and law enforcement and correctional facility agents.

The Washington-based civil rights organization has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims, immigrants and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.
