New Jersey Mayor Says MAGA is ‘Christian Sharia’ and ‘Religious Zealots’

The comments have several local leaders calling for the Mayor’s resignation.

The political divide that America is currently facing is simply astounding.  It truly is like nothing we’ve experience since the either the Civil War or the Civil Rights Movement…or maybe both.

These are unprecedented times, as the media fans the flames of our dichotic division in search of ratings and revenue, figuratively fanning the literal flames that we see on-screen from places like Portland and Kenosha.

And, undoubtedly, these instances of violence and vitriol will continue to ramp up until after the November election, as political operatives continue their quest to completely dismantle the other side of the aisle.

Even at the local level, the rhetoric is becoming unhinged.

A New Jersey mayor has come under fire for a private Facebook post that condemned President Donald Trump and likened his supporters to “religious zealots” who want to “enact the Christian version of Sharia law.”

The post, allegedly from Flemington Mayor Betsy Driver, was shared Saturday on the Hunterdon GOP’s website.

“This is day one of the new SCOTUS terms – the religious zealots want to enact the Christian version of Sharia law,” the post reads. “If you voted for the orange monster with COVID, go f— yourself. If you plan on voting for him again, unfriend me and go f— yourself again.”

Several local leaders were incensed at the post.

Hunterdon GOP Chair Gabe Plumer, who shared the post online, derided it as “shameful” and “insulting,” and called on Driver to resign.

“Your statement is antithetical to the principles of representative democracy,” Plumer wrote in a statement. “It is further proof that you do not represent the people of Flemington, the character of Hunterdon County, and the values of at least part of the Democrat party.”

Jack Ciattarelli, a former assemblyman and candidate for New Jersey Governor, tweeted Saturday that he joins “Chairman Plumer in calling for Driver’s resignation & (urges) leaders across our state to do the same.”

Driver has refused to consider resigning over the comments.
