Adams County GOP Official Doesn't Agree With Own Anti-Muslim Bigotry on Facebook

Adams County GOP vice-chair John Sampson.
Adams County GOP vice-chair John Sampson.

Adams County Republican Party Vice Chair John Sampson does not believe that a Muslim judge, who chose to take her oath of office with her hand on a Quran, will use Sharia law as the basis of her legal decisions, even though an email shared by Sampson on Facebook made the argument that the judge, Carolyn Walker-Diallo, “will head the first federally sanctioned SHARIA COURT.”

“Just because I post something, does not necessarily mean I agree with it,” Sampson told me today. “I will post something in order to prime the pump, if you will, for public discourse. And I would use the word civil public discourse.”

“I don’t agree with it,” Sampson continued. “She, from everything I have seen, is an exemplary jurist. Just because she is wearing a hijab, and just because she is holding a Quran does not necessarily mean she is going to impose Sharia law. People are drawing conclusions based on an insufficient amount of information.”

In the spirit of “putting it out there for public consumption,” Sampson did not indicate that he disagreed with the email, when he posted it on Facebook May 29, writing instead, “What follows is the content of an email I received from a friend. I did not write this. I am merely ‘sharing’ it.”

Here’s the text of the email, which, again, Sampson said, he does not agree with:

The first Muslim woman judge — Carolyn Walker — was hand-picked by President Obama and sworn in as judge of the 7th Municipal District, Brooklyn, choosing to swear her oath of office holding the HOLY QURAN at the Brooklyn Boro Hall on December 10, 2015. It was a historic day! Oddly enough, there was almost no media coverage of this event . .

Since the Quran forbids all law but Sharia Law, isn’t it reasonable to assume that Her Honor will head the first federally sanctioned SHARIA COURT.

Makes one proud, doesn’t it? “Gives me chills up my legs” said Chris Mathews.

Another little chink in the armor? A small, quiet erosion here and there. No one cares, until it’s too late. Step by step by step….this is how American culture will end.

Rejoice Obama supporters! Your dream of destroying America is coming true.

Politicians and diapers should be changed frequently and all for the same reason

A Snopes fact-check found it to be true that Walker-Diallo chose a Quran for her swearing-in ceremony, as permitted by law.

Walker-Diallo is the first black Muslim female civil court judge in New York City. She has no apparent connection to Obama, as alleged in the email.

  1. But hey, Sampson has a black friend! (Right wing wacko Allen West)  Whom he's met twice!

    Pols' February 2015 post enumerates some of the other ways Adams County chair GOP Vice Chairman has shown himself to be a racist:

    *He was a birther in 2009.

    *He posted this American Renaissance piece on his Facebook page:

     On December 29th, Sampson posted an article to his Facebook page from American Renaissance–a white nationalist publication listed in the Southern Poverty Law Center's "Extremist Files." From the American Renaissance article Sampson posted:

    My experience has…taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike. [Pols emphasis]

    Remember that John Sampson was also the "private investigator" who interviewed Julie Naye during OutHouse. During that interview, Naye, sounding authentic, denied any affair with GOP Chairman Steve House.

    So Sampson may be a birther and a racist and an Islamophobe, but he helped keep the Republican Chairman from being blackmailed into resigning by the OutHouse crew.  He's also a Trump supporter, albeit a reluctant one:

    John Sampson I'm not enamored with how he treats people. He is bombastic, rude, crude, and socially unacceptable. I believe the word to describe what he is lacking is "Presidential". Having said that, if he is effective, and gets the job done, then I have no issues. I love his immigration agenda. I don't know if he's a supporter of big government or not.
