"the congressman responded with a fundraising pitch, saying he's “a proud advocate of a woman’s right to choose as well as access to reproductive health care, but I need your support to respond to these shameless attacks,”

Muslims are renowned for their support of "Women", and killing babies inside a Muslim Womans womb is commonplace in all Muslim Countries, especialy those Moderate Muslim Countries with Sharia Law.

Mr Ellison is about as Muslim as I am.

But then again, I do not need to dupe the Sheeple to attain a free ride and political office....therefore, morality is not situational with me

I admire Demokrats for thier consistency.

I must inform you that the term "towel head" is very offensive to some people. The Turban is actually a holy vestment and when translated means, Little Sheet.

Therefore, the politically correct term is "little sheet heads"....

as well as you are more likely to see a Sikh or a Hindu wearing a turban than a Muslim here in the Twin Cities.
the Muslim males around here are more likely to wear a kufi. it looks more like a cap or a pill-box hat.

yea, it is a slur against anyone who wears a turban for religious and or cultural reasons.
many folks tend to assume it is only Muslims who wear turbans. as well as they assume that only males wear them. there is at least one Jewish group who also wears them. same goes for Rastafarians.
along with Ethiopian Orthodox Christians who also wear them.
there are women who wear them too as part of their cultural identity.

People with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) are literal, and have a hard time understanding some humor.

a person on the spectrum does have a harder time with written word humour. but many do have a dry sense of humour face to face type.

Written word humor is always hard to discern. sarcasm is even harder...

I was just telling a joke relating to Towelhead's moniker.(a joke told to me by a muslim...)
