Minnesota Independent: “We’re Muslim and we’re McCain voters and you guys are taking votes away.”

“We’re Muslim and we’re McCain voters and you guys are taking votes away.”

On Sunday Colin Powell spoke strongly against his party’s slandering of Islam. This kind of thing is happening at McCain’s campaign events too. Here’s video from the American News Project of a McCain rally in Woodbridge, Virginia, where McCain supporters denouncing Barack Obama as a Muslim are confronted by a man who introduces himself as the chairman of McCain’s Maryland campaign–and a Muslim. “I ran for United States Congress and I was endorsed by John McCain,” he tells a man holding an anti-Obama sticker that features the crescent and star and the hammer and sickle.  Muslim McCain supporters are there too. “Shame on you guys,” shouts one, “because we’re Muslim and we’re McCain voters and you guys are taking votes away.”
