Allen West’s Unhinged Rant About Sharia Law Invading Walmart Is Why We Love Him (SCREENSHOTS)

If you’re a fan of Allen West, you probably don’t read anything on this web site…or at all. For those of you who tend to avoid anything produced by the Stupid Part of America, it is important to realize that Sharia Law is coming to Walmart — so sayeth one of the many right-wing Presidential hopefuls.

West and his daughter were shopping at one of the Walmarts the United States Government isn’t currently using to tunnel to Texas for an armed takeover of the Lone Star State, and they noticed something chilling: There was a single lane at which customers could not purchase alcohol. West explained on his web site:

“Back in Dallas, after we unloaded the U-Haul, Aubrey, a very organized young lady, began the initial arranging of her room. And then came the request — ‘Dad, I know you haven’t been eating well here, so we need to go grocery shopping.’ Dang it! This is what happens when your daughter is pursuing a Masters in Molecular/Cellular Biology. So we were off to the local Walmart Superstore just up the road. We gathered up her desired foodstuffs and headed to the checkout — and then this happened.”

What happened next was…probably the most moronic thing you will read all day:

There was a young man doing the checkout and another Walmart employee came over and put up a sign, “No alcohol products in this lane.” So being the inquisitive fella I am, I used my additional set of eyes — glasses — to see the young checkout man’s name. Let me just say it was NOT “Steve.”

I pointed the sign out to Aubrey and her response was a simple question, how is it that this Muslim employee could refuse service to customers based on his religious beliefs, but Christians are being forced to participate in specific events contrary to their religious beliefs?

“Boy howdy, that is one astute young lady,” West writes. “Imagine that, this employee at Walmart refused to just scan a bottle or container of an alcoholic beverage — and that is acceptable. A Christian business owner declines to participate or provide service to a specific event — a gay wedding — which contradicts their faith, and the State crushes them.”

West might have a point (though he probably wouldn’t) — if, of course, he and his daughter exercised even the smallest amount of critical thinking before jumping to their terrifyingly stupid conclusion.

Upon further investigation, West’s web site learned that “not Steve” was actually under the age of 21, and that it would have been a violation of store policy for the employee to sell alcohol:

We spoke to the Walmart store, and apparently employees under 21 years old are prohibited from selling cigarettes and alcohol. However, that isn’t to say Walmart isn’t selectively caving to Muslim demands, such as this case regarding Halal meat in Ohio.

In the “Ohio” case, West is correct that Walmart is selling Sharia-compliant meat, just like it sells Kosher food. However, this is not “caving to Muslim demands” as West claims — it’s simply catering to customers of varying belief systems. Walmart sells Bibles, too, after all.

Though West’s ridiculous “Sharia checkout” theory was debunked by…Allen West…his readers certainly don’t care:

For all the smarts allegedly in that family, West sure doesn’t think about things much in his desperation to demonize Muslims. It’s a pity that his daughter seems to be just like him.
