Muslim lawmaker blames Trump’s rhetoric for death threat

A Muslim lawmaker is blaming the “toxic environment” created by Donald Trump’s rhetoric on Islam for a death threat he received Monday.

Indiana Rep. André Carson said threats of violence against Muslims can be linked to Trump's “demagoguery.” Carson is a practicing Muslim and the first person of that faith to serve on the House Select Committee on Intelligence.

“I just received a death threat yesterday in my own office, and it’s largely in part to this toxic environment,” Carson said on CNN on Tuesday.

He added, “what concerns me is you have the demagoguery taking place from people who are seeking to become president of the United States. You have other politicians who are joining the bandwagon and who are fanning the flames of bigotry.”

Yeah right, Andre.. it couldn't have ANYTHING to do with the recent terrorist attack. It had to have been caused by somebody's rhetoric.

Oh Boo Hoo, go cry elsewhere. If your buddies would quit killing innocent people, maybe you wouldn't get death threats.
