DAILYKENN.com -- 90 Muslims are seeking public office in this year's elections and nearly all share this common denominator: They are running as leftist Democrats.
And that, my friends, is why the far-left is so intent on amassing millions of Muslims in the United States and other Western nations.
About one percent of the nation's population is Muslim. That's enough to throw a close presidential election away from patriots who built this nation and to the far left that seeks to destroy it.

Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office.
Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump’s election and policies.
But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave.
More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group.
Although their number seems small, the candidacies mark an unprecedented rise for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics.
There are more than 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, but Muslim Americans hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. And the Muslim community’s voter participation pales in comparison to the general public’s.
