Nevada Republican Senatorial candidate Angle suggests that two towns in America — Dearborn, Michigan and Frankford, Texas — are now under the control of Sharia law. You can hear the tape here: here In responding to a question, she answers:
“We’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe isn’t a widespread thing. But it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it. My thoughts are these. First of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas are on American soil, and under Constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States. It seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with allowing a foreign system of law to even take hold in any municipality or government situation in our United States.”
The problem is not just with Ms. Angle’s coherence. Frankford, Texas has not existed since it was annexed by Dallas in 1975. The area is now better known as Bent Tree, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Texas.
