New Jersey Mayor Attacks Trumps Supporters As ‘Religious Zealots’ Who Want ‘Sharia Law’

A New Jersey mayor recently caused controversy by criticizing President Donald Trump in a private Facebook post that compared his supporters to “religious zealots” who want to “enact the Christian version of Sharia law.”

Betsy Driver is the mayor of Flemington, New Jersey and her alleged recent post was shared on a local Republican website.

Local Leaders Condemn Flemington Mayor

“This is day one of the new SCOTUS terms – the religious zealots want to enact the Christian version of Sharia law,” the post reads.

“If you voted for the orange monster with COVID, go f*** yourself. If you plan on voting for him again, unfriend me and go f*** yourself again.”

Local GOP Chairman Gabe Plumer shared the post and condemned it as as “shameful” and “insulting.” 

“Your statement is antithetical to the principles of representative democracy,” Plumer wrote in a statement.

“It is further proof that you do not represent the people of Flemington, the character of Hunterdon County, and the values of at least part of the Democrat party.”

Former assemblyman and candidate for New Jersey Governor, Jack Ciattarelli, tweeted something similar on Saturday: “I join with Chairman Plumer in calling for Driver’s resignation & urge leaders across our state to do the same.”

Ciattarelli and Plumer are correct, but this kind of local and hateful anti-Trump sentiment happens more often than some might think.

Far-Left Politicians Aren’t Limited To ‘The Squad’ In Congress

A woman who declared “I am Antifa” wants to be the next mayor of Portland.

And she’s ahead in the polls.

The Washington Examiner reports, “A poll shows Portland, Oregon, mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone is up 11 percentage points over the city’s incumbent Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler.”

“Iannarone has defended antifa, an often-violent activist group whose masked supporters protest law enforcement and work to promote left-wing policies, once tweeting, ‘I am Antifa,” the Examiner noted.

Fox News’ Jesse Waters asked Iannarone in early September, “Why do you call yourself the ‘Antifa mayor?'”

“Because it’s good to oppose fascism!” Iannarone replied.

Madison, Wisconsin Mayor Forced To Apologize For Praising Police

The mayor of famously left-wing Madison, Wisconsin was recently forced to apologize after a video of her praising and showing sympathy for the police was leaked, because she supposedly failed to say that black lives matter.

NBC News reports, “The mayor of Madison, Wisconsin, apologized after video leaked of her praising local officers and sympathizing with police over the stress of recent protests without discussing the nationwide concerns for police reform.”

“Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway walked back the comments in a new video posted Wednesday where she admits she ‘failed to center’ the message that black lives matter in her password-protected video to the Madison Police Department,” NBC noted.

“I realize I may have done irreparable harm with my actions,” Rhodes-Conway said. “I realize too that I may have permanently lost any trust I may have had.”

Extremist left-wing views are not confined to the bright lights and bold headlines of national political figures. But it’s the environment we find ourselves in now.

They can be found right down the street, at City Hall.

  • President Trump made another brainless head explode Bravo Trump. To the people in Flemington get your head out of your ass

  • Where is the insane asylum that these ungrateful, unpatriotic, ugly and people and politican come from. It must have been from the woodwork there. Can't believe some of these people; most of them certainly should be locked up or put on a slow boat to China with a 1/2 a tank of fuel. Those who are unhappy with the US really have mental problems, insecure, incompetent, dumb, etc. They need to learn to zip their mouth as nobody wants to hear about their misery.

  • Just goes to show you how smart you people are. The liberal left wants Sharia law, not the right. Get your 'facts' straight.

  • Would I buy a used car from Trump? Absolutely!! Not only a used car but also an abused national economy that he turned around in only 3 years and that's why you have to attack him.

    After all the hoax of "Russia collusion", all the Chinese Communist Party Virus panic, getting sick with C-19, unending defamation and demonization, etc., etc. he stands VERY STRONG and you ENVY and hate that because you are weak and couldn't take any of what he has endured for a New York minute. Total Fail!! His bombastic statements keep attention on him and the important issues and you, like all the deranged leftists, fall for it. America Is Great!!

  • Trump does indeed make policy usually with his gut. Consequently, advisors, cabinet members, and career experts have fallen by wayside expressing their abhorrence of Trump's ignorance, lack of work ethic, and narcissism.
    The big picture: President Trump says he's an expert on a lot of things, including ISIS, taxes, technology, nuclear arms et al.

    • ISIS: "I know more about ISIS than the generals do." (November 2015.)
    • Social media: "I understand social media. I understand the power of Twitter. I understand the power of Facebook maybe better than almost anybody, based on my results, right?" (November 2015.)
    • Courts: "I know more about courts than any human being on Earth." (November 2015.)
    • Lawsuits: "[W]ho knows more about lawsuits than I do? I'm the king." (January 2016.)
    • Politicians: "I understand politicians better than anybody."
    • The visa system: "[N]obody knows the system better than me. I know the H1B. I know the H2B. ... Nobody else on this dais knows how to change it like I do, believe me." (March 2016.)
    • Trade: "Nobody knows more about trade than me." (March 2016.)
    • The U.S. government system: "[N]obody knows the system better than I do." (April 2016.)
    • Renewable energy: "I know more about renewables than any human being on Earth." (April 2016.)
    • Taxes: "I think nobody knows more about taxes than I do, maybe in the history of the world." (May 2016.)
    • Debt: "I’m the king of debt. I’m great with debt.

    Would you buy a used car from this man? Not me!
