    Gen. William Boykin can espouse his racist rants elsewhere but not here representing America's finest.

    He sounds just like many of the rightwing nitwits who post on this forum.

    Troubling that the military would tolerate someone so ignorant and hateful – now that he’s no longer ‘serving,’ let’s hope there are no more like him.

    The military is infested with the likes of Lt. Gen William G. Boykin unfortunately. They will come out of the cracks as opportunities arise.

    "Boykin has said that Muslims are trying to implement Shariah Law in the United States and that Islam is the greatest threat America faces."

    Sounds like simple reality to me but I guess there are many in denial.

    WRONG!

    In interviews, American Muslims say they reject separate ‘sharia’ law system

    Miss this?:

    "The study's sample was not random, and MacFarlane's findings are not generalizable to the American Muslim community as a whole."

    Wrong question anyway. A legal system other than the one we have that is binding on anyone is not acceptable in this Country.

    Islam isn't a race. The last time I checked, it's a religion. Someone who criticizes religion isn't a racist. More than likely, that makes you a liberal. that is, so long as the religion you criticize is Christianity.
