Tennessee State Representative Rick Womick: “I Don’t Trust One Muslim in Our Military”

In this video, Rick Womick expounds upon his position:

Unsurprisingly, the Muzzy thugocracy went into high gear and called for his impeachment:

Muslims call for rebuke of Womick for remarks

MURFREESBORO — Local and national Muslims called for state officials Saturday to rebuke state Rep. Rick Womick for remarks he made that all Muslims be removed from the U.S. military.

At least one local Muslim, Saleh Sbenaty of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, went further, stating: ” … he needs to be impeached immediately.”

Womick, though, stood by his comments and offered no apology when contacted by The DNJ.

“Who are we at war with?” Womick said. “We are at war with al-Qaeda and the Taliban, who are Muslims. It’s a Catch-22. They are not allowed to kill their fellow Muslims, we’re at war with Muslims. The only solution I see is that they not be allowed in the military.”

Womick, R-Rockvale, set off a cascade of criticism for remarks that he made during an interview with Eli Clifton of thinkprogress.org Friday at an anti-Shariah conference in Nashville.

“Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military,” Womick said in the interview. “If they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the Tennessee General Assembly to formally rebuke Womick for calling for removal of all Muslims from the military.

CAIR also called on state and national Republican Party leaders to repudiate Womick’s bigoted “un-American” comments.

Womick said Saturday he has no opinion on what CAIR had so say.

“They are a radical Islamic group,” said Womick, who fought as a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot in the first Gulf War to force Iraq’s military out of Kuwait in 1990-91. “Whatever they have to say, I choose to ignore.”

Womick’s comments particularly bother Islamic Center of Murfreesboro member Saleh Sbenaty.

“It’s really sad to see Mr. Womick’s comments coming on Veterans Day,” said Sbenaty, a 19-year MTSU professor in the Department of Engineering Technology. “He needs to be reminded that there are thousands of Muslims who serve and are serving (in the U.S. military), and there are many of them who gave up their lives to preserve the freedom of this country and the freedom that he is enjoying.”

State Rep […]  Pat Marsh, R-Shelbyville, said:

“I know Rep. Womick has had some run-ins with them (Muslims) on his pilot’s job,” said Marsh, a Republican whose district includes portions of Rutherford County’s Rockvale and Blackman communities and Eagleville. “I think he’s OK to say whatever he likes. It’s free speech.”

Damn right it is!

  1. There maybe thousands of moslems serving in the US Military.

    However here is my question. Are they trust worthy?

    I agree with Mr. Womack. IF they give themsevles over to jihad in the name of muhammad and thier allah. Then they are the enemy not an ally.

    Too bad cair forgets those moslems who have killed thier Officers in the name of thier system…

    So if they start either a censure or impeachment process, won’t they have to show where the statements he made were materially false?

    That ought to be entertaining to see that dance!

    His statement of distrust is a matter of opinion, and should be protected 1st Amendment speech. They don’t have to like it. There’s no Constitutional guarantee that you won’t be offended. I’m offended every time Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, etc. open their stupid pie holes; you don’t see me running to the press. (like they’d listen anyhow)

    I think that he cogently brings up a vitally important issue that is the crux of the Ft. Hood shooting, and other ridiculous things like the Marines’ orders about peeing, spitting, and boot pointing. To quote, “If they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”

    I know that there are plenty in the military who are aware of this catch-22, really, subterfuge. But they are really unable to do or even say anything about it due to the PC bull trickling down from Capitol Hill and out of the WH. I expect any comments of that nature would be shortly career ending.

    The Army is being sued over Ft Hood and the power point presentation that the murderer used long before he went full muslim on everybody else. Who will pay the settlement? Us, the taxpayers, of course. And that my friends, makes it personal and directly our business. It seems the Army has developed a plan here that is worse than the one we are using in the stan and that is simply unacceptable. We should be calling for some butts. I would like to know where the best and brightest are in Army leadership circles. Perhaps they think we should sacrifice our lives for their plan to nowhere.

    Believe in me I’m with the high command!

    Muslims and their US allies are trying to destroy morale in the military. One on purpose, one through ignorance. Well I hope its just ignorance.

    BTW a Maronite Christian friend of mine who was born and raised in the ME told me that the ‘Holy Korans’ English translation has been ‘cleaned up’ and ‘sanitized’, some passages in the original text are literally more hateful, vile, and violent. Translation can be slanted and tweaked to the benefit the propagandists who are presenting a ‘gentler, kinder Islam.

    Interesting that the fascist CAIR feels it needs to be everywhere to stifle any criticism of islam – perhaps they fear the truth being revealed about their history, and their link to Hitler via AMIN AL-HUSSEINI.

    Amin, heavily influenced by the Third Reich, would end up escaping to Egypt where he orchestrated the mindset of the present day Muslim Brotherhood, who has spawned al-Qaeda, Hamas, and yes, CAIR.

    It is all anti-Jew, death to Christianity, death to democracy, and world domination by a fascist radical totalitarian government.

    Why does CAIR, (who is only supposedly concerned about the view Americans have of Muslims in America), care about the opinions other muslims have of known terrorist group in Somalia? Why?- because they are all siblings to parent jihadist terrorist groups, thats why.

    Screw Islam. Screw the god of the kaaba, but don’t screw Muhammad, he might like it. Sick puppy.
