Sanders wins backing of top Muslim political group

48

Emgage Action is a virulently anti-Israel organization, so naturally they would throw their support behind the anti-Israel bigot and self-hating Jew Bernie Sanders. Expect CAIR to officially endorse Bernie Sanders in the months ahead. G-d help us if this lunatic wins in November. #Jexodus! #Trump2020!

Sanders wins backing of top Muslim political group

Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action, said Sanders is popular among Muslim voters because of his health care plan, criminal justice proposals and environmental policy. He also noted his international affairs platform and record of supporting Palestinian rights.

By Politico, February 20th, 2020:

Emgage PAC, which calls itself the biggest Muslim political action committee in the country, is throwing its weight behind Bernie Sanders.

The organization, which has chapters and affiliates in 11 states, is the latest in a series of high-profile Muslim groups and elected officials to endorse the Vermont senator.

Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action, said Sanders is popular among Muslim voters because of his health care plan, criminal justice proposals and environmental policy. He also noted his international affairs platform and record of supporting Palestinian rights.

“More than any other presidential candidate, Sen. Sanders has built a historically inclusive and forward-thinking movement: one that represents America as a set of ideas grounded in the belief that all humans are equal and worthy of a dignified life,” he said. “Our endorsement is intended to galvanize Muslim Americans at the polls to ensure that our voices are heard.”

An informal survey of Emgage’s members and email list users found that nearly 75 percent said they support Sanders.

Sanders was one of only two 2020 candidates to attend a presidential candidate forum co-hosted by Emgage at the Islamic Society of North America’s annual convention. That didn’t go unnoticed by Muslim leaders, who have argued that most of the 2020 contenders have all but neglected them.

“From where we’re sitting and what we’ve seen, it doesn’t seem that any major candidate has reached out in the same way,” Alzayat said.

Sanders’ relationship with Muslim voters contributed to his upset victory in Michigan in the 2016 presidential primary. This year, Sanders has won the support of Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first two Muslim women elected to the House.
