Virulently anti-Muslim activist wins FL primary

Imagine 2050 Staff • Aug 27, 2014
On Tuesday, notorious anti-Muslim activist Joe Kaufman won his primary election for the Republican nomination for Florida’s 23rd district of US Congress.

Kaufman, who runs the ironically named group “Americans Against Hate,” has a well-documented history of anti-Muslim activity. For example, Kaufman previously protested Muslim Family Day at a Six Flags amusement park, claiming it was sponsored by terrorist organizations. Following the actual terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Kaufman recklessly advocated the use of nuclear weapons against unspecified Muslim countries.

Kaufman will be running against incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz in November’s midterm election.
