    The Tarrant County Republicans in Texas will vote this week to remove their vice chairman because he is Muslim.

    Republican Dorrie O'Brien is leading a group of colleagues in an attempt to unseat Shahid Shafi, a trauma surgeon in Forth Worth, the largest city in Tarrant County.

    "We don't think he's suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he'd be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S.," O'Brien wrote in a Facebook post.

    It's not bigotry it's all about economic anxiety.

    Kicking this guy out specifically because of his religion and based on nothing else is overt bigotry.

    Decisions like this within the Republican party will have major ramifications years down the road. However, in the immediate term it serves to strengthen the party.

    Makes sense considering Texas was annexed by Israel.

    Not all Muslims are terrorists. But it's too bad Obama didn't see Islam in the same way as the Texas Republican Party.

    Obamas Islamic immigrant terrorists

    Islam is NOT a religion. It is an ideology of domination and means to destroy and take over host countries.

    I’m 100% in support of less Islam but I think these guys are going about it the wrong way.
