Muslim support, 2014

Muslim Democratic Club of Montgomery County, October 26, 2016:

This. This is why our club was founded.

In 2014, Congressman John K. Delaney faced a tough re-election campaign, and Muslims played a vital role in helping him win that year. More than half his interns were Muslims, and large numbers of his volunteers were Muslims, too. But they weren't organized by Uncles or Aunties: they were organized by young people. The Uncles and Aunties didn't want to help John win, and so we almost lost a Democrat to an extreme, Islamophobic tea party member. But young Muslim Americans helped stopped that from happening, and to protect our community's interests, a group of 30 of us founded the Muslim Democratic Club.
The Muslim Democratic Club is challenging the inequality, the racism, sexism, mysogyny corruption, ableism, homophobia, hypocrisy, superstitions, casteism and male privilege that has kept our county's 100,000 Muslims from seeing a single one of us elected to state or county office in the past decade--not to mention *ever* to federal office. Will you join us to end Uncle-Ji rule, and bring forth Democratic rule in our community?[6]
