Muslim activists launch a multi-state effort to ‘Abandon Biden’

At the intersection of terrorist sympathy and electoral politics, anti-Israel activists had a stark warning for President Joe Biden’s re-election chances over ostensibly siding with America’s ally.

“…the Democrats will learn a lesson…”

Between rabble-rousing in cities and on campuses to destructive ends, while organizing “uncommitted” protest votes, the pro-Palestine populous within the United States has signaled their desire for nothing short of full capitulation. Despite the terrorists’ own undermining of humanitarian aid shipments, disregard for ceasefires and use of civilians as human shields, a multi-state coalition contended they’ve got the numbers to send the president packing if he doesn’t turn on Israel.

“By defeating [Biden], it would signal to the entire political landscape that defending genocide could lead to your defeat, so beware,” said now-former University of Minnesota professor Hassan Abdel Salam, a leader of the “Abandon Biden” movement, to the Minnesota Star Tribune.

Organizing in nine swing states, as previously covered, the movement focused its efforts on threatening the outcome of the November election in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

“That’s my goal,” expressed Abdel Salam who departed academia at the conclusion of the most recent semester teaching a class on global Islamophobia, “…promote the message throughout the nation and ensure it’s a consistent one.”

The Tribune spoke with locals in a heavily Muslim community in Minneapolis where Abdi Ali suggested the Democratic Party “thinks that because we’re scared of Trump, we’re going to vote for [Biden], and we will not do that. I’m not going to vote for Trump, but if he comes, let him…He will stay four years, but the Democrats will learn a lesson: They’re going to lose their base if they don’t listen to the people.”

As has been demonstrated through polling of other demographics, former President Donald Trump’s record over four years and his intended policies for a potential second term have continued to make inroads with voters frustrated by Biden’s leftist leadership that has resulted in economic woes, international turmoil and increased crime and violence across the nation.

According to New York Times/Siena College polls conducted in most of the aforementioned swing states from late April through early May, Trump beat out Biden by 57% to 25% among Muslim and Arab-American voters.

“Our math right now shows really no pathway for Biden to win,” said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of Minnesota’s chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the second of three board members for Abandon Biden from The North Star State. “The talk that I’m hearing from many community leaders is if [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee] can do it, we also can…I just think that there is a huge political shift, and a lot of the political pundits and Democrats are not waking up.”

Recognizing the reality of the potential sway a negative campaign could have on the incumbent, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D)  resorted to fear-mongering over Trump as he told the Tribune, “But I’m looking toward what the future looks like…And what that means to me is Trump can’t be any part of that.”

“Trump’s the one who came up with the Muslim ban. He said he would do it again. Trump won’t do anything to alleviate the harm to Palestinians; in fact, he’ll do worse,” he continued, re-racking a tired narrative on restricting travel from terrorist-harboring nations before rattling off some of the GOP leader’s accomplishments like moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and brokering the Abraham Accords as though these were bad things.

Ellison further claimed, “If you want to undermine Hamas, a Palestinian state is the best way to do it.”

Abandon Biden contended growing support among demographics that included young voters, blacks, Latinos, leftists and libertarians and Abdel Salam argued, “In order for moral advancement to take place, we cannot move into the formula of what is the lesser of two evils.”
