Dem Candidate For Minnesota House Ends Campaiging “ISIS Isn’t Necessarily evil"


#1

A Democratic candidate for Minnesota state representative is ending his campaign because of backlash to a post he made on social media about the Islamic State.

Dan Kimmel, a software developer and self-described “business process expert” from Burnsville, Minn., posted a tweet Saturday night that said “ISIS isn’t necessarily evil. It is made up of people doing what they think is best for their community. Violence is not the answer, though.”

His tweet came a day after attacks in Paris left 128 dead and at least 350 injured. The Islamic State claimed responsibility.

Looks like he cooked his goose. To say such an asinine thing is unbelievable.

Liberals can’t call evil what it is which is evil. They are walking dead.

ISIS and those all-in for ISIS subscribing to shooting and blowing up men, women and kids eating dinner or attending a concert or walking along a street are not necessarily evil?
