For me, it’s telling that the left came out to defend repressive and regressive theocracy, which is what Sharia law is:

Police said two to five people were arrested, but they didn’t release any further information.

Counter-protesters eventually left as about 100 Trump supporters taunted them, and the scene quieted somewhat.

The “March Against Sharia” rally was one of several demonstrations held in more than 20 cities across the country, including New York, Chicago, Boston, Dallas and Atlanta.

On its website, Act for America, which sponsored the rally, calls itself “the NRA of national security.”

“This is a march against Sharia law and for human rights,” according to a statement posted on Act for America’s website. “Our nation is built on the freedom of religion — a pillar of our democracy — which we must always respect, protect, and honor. However, many aspects of Sharia law run contrary to basic human rights and are completely incompatible with our laws and our democratic values.”

Act for America member Denise Zamora told CBS2 News, “There are radicals out there. People are saying that we’re against Muslims. No, Muslims are attacking other Muslims, and we’re bringing in these refugees that have the same ideologies.”
