Alas, Jason Ravnsborg continues to peddle Islamophobia to get local Republican delegates to overlook his lack of qualifications and nominate him for Attorney General. An eager reader submits this flyer advertising Ravnsborg’s next great slideshow to stoke Pennington County Republican women’s fears of Sharia Law:
I guess with the Islamic State back to statelessness (if you want to call temporarily filling a power vacuum and ruling by terror and theft a “state”), Ravnsborg has to repackage his old slides on the Caliphate and focus on the hogwash his Republican friends tell each other about Muslims and Marxists and the Chamber of Commerce collaborating to take over South Dakota.
Whatever those sneaky Muslims are up to, Ravnsborg doesn’t appear to bagging many of them in his job as assistant to the state’s attorney in Union County. That county’s state’s attorney’s press releases list a lot of prosecutions, but none of Muslim-sounding dudes or sympathizers engaging in terrorism or civil rights violations, just the usual assortment of mostly Euro-names committing the usual assortment of small-town mischief. The lack of excitement must be why Ravnsborg can step away so often from his part-time job to affirm the fears of Republicans around the state of things that aren’t happening.
