The defenders of Oprah guru Mehmet Mohammed Oz say that there’s something xenophobic, Islamophobic and otherwise bigoted about questioning the progressive Senate candidate’s Turkish citizenship.
But running for the Senate with dual citizenship is strange in and of itself. Doing so while being a citizen of an enemy nation tied up with Islamic terrorism is really… unsavory.
But Senator Lindsey Graham would like to borrow that word.
In interviews, Republicans gave Oz what amounts to a leg up in his nasty primary by saying that they have no concerns about his loyalty and no problems with him receiving classified briefings should he become a U.S. senator.
“That whole line of attack is unsavory to me,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). “I have no doubt that he’s loyal to the United States.”
As loyal as Lindsey who never met a Muslim Brotherhood member he would condemn.
Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina broke the GOP silence on Capitol Hill on Sunday to issue a scathing condemnation of President Donald Trump’s ban on travel to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“We fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism,” McCain and Graham said in a joint statement, adding that Trump’s executive order “may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.”
Quite a recommendation.
