It's SATIRE, Internet: 'City in Michigan First to Fully Implement Sharia Law'

City in Michigan First to Fully Implement Sharia Law

Contrary to what's claimed in an article published yesterday on NationalReport.net, the Dearborn, Michigan City Council did not vote to implement Sharia law there over the weekend.

A list of the Council's scheduled meeting dates shows that members last met on Oct. 24 and meet meet next on Oct. 29. There was no City Council meeting this past weekend.

To remind everyone yet again, National Report is a satire website. Nothing they publish is true. See more examples of their handiwork below.

Update: The City of Dearborn issued a press release on Oct. 30 labeling the National Report article "false" and "phony." Dearborn mayor Jack O'Reilly was quoted as follows: "Dearborn has never been, nor ever will be, under sharia law. We are governed by the U.S. Constitution, the Constitution of the State of Michigan and the City of Dearborn Charter."

Think you mean Republicans always lie. They make up things all the time and post it.

It’s not satire; it’s boy who cried wolf. That way we’ll laugh and think it’s satire when it actually happens.

Klitzke, so you basically believe everything you read before doing your own research? Sounds like your credibility has always been on the line.

Check the various hoax sites for political hoaxes and you’ll see that the number of outright lying hoaxes against Obama outnumber the ones against all Republican figures combined by a huge margin. Rather like 6 or 7 to 1. Why does the rightwing rage so furiously against Obama? I’ll let you answer that.

It’s the right-wing dominionists and fundamentalists who want to impose their version of Christian sharia law on all of us. There’s NOTHING liberal or progressive about religious dictatorship and tyranny, regardless of what name God has.

Gosh, I wonder how these things get spread so far and wide. Not.
