On January 29, a female protester at a Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) event in Texas grabbed the mic and screamed, “Islam will never dominate the United States.”
The incident took place in Austin, Texas, during the 11th Texas Muslim Capitol Day.
In a video posted by The Texas Tribune, the woman can be seen grabbing the mic and denouncing the “false prophet Muhammed.” And even as Muslim organizers by the podium asked for help in silencing her, the woman continued: “Islam will never dominate the United States. And by the grace of God, it will not dominate Texas.”
Finished, she then turned and stormed away from the podium.
Afterward, the Tribune reported that a group of Muslims responded to the woman by singing the “Star Spangled Banner,” but other protesters countered them by shouting, “Islam is a lie!” and “No sharia here!”
The Huffington Post reported that “Texas Muslim Capitol Day [was] tainted by Anti-Islam protesters.”
