Intolerance: The Left insults conservative Muslim student online

Nothing may make liberals angrier than seeing that their stereotypes of the right don’t hold up. Here’s proof.

On Tuesday, Red Alert Politics posted an interview with Nadia Elgendy, a practicing Muslim student at Christopher Newport University recently elected chair of the College Republicans of Virginia.

Liberals couldn’t handle the interview, Red Alert Politics noted:

Shortly after the interview was published and shared on Facebook, Elgendy began to see a backlash from individuals who were shocked that she is a practicing Muslim who holds conservative views.

One person commented “What utter garbage.” Another remarked “This paints a picture of a child playing politics (which I’m sure she’s not, blame the writer playing journalist).”

There was more:

Other users told Elgendy and the people who support her views they were close-minded, misleading, and “childish.”

It’s likely those who commented didn’t like Elgendy’s defense of President Donald Trump’s immigration order or her rebuke of identity politics:

Elgendy told Red Alert she understands the Muslim community’s concerns over Trump’s immigration order, but she does not think it should be called a “Muslim Ban.” She added she does not believe identity politics should affect her views.

Following the online harassment, Elgendy said her job isn’t to be “the ‘token Muslim’ and only comment on the ‘Muslim issues.’”

Liberals also probably didn’t enjoy her pointing out similarities between conservatives and Muslims:

[Elgendy] believes that it’s important to be an advocate for her community, because there is so much in common between Muslims and conservatives. Both are family-centered, pro-life, and stand up for the little guy.
