Even though Muslims account for only roughly one percent of the U.S. population, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has vowed to make his administration “look like America” by having “Muslim Americans serving at every level.”
“My administration will look like America, with Muslim Americans serving at every level,” he said while speaking for a video presentation that was compiled and published this week by the Muslim advocacy group known as the Muslim Advocates.
Measuring about 400 words, the remarks by Biden were his pitch to the Muslim community, and so they predictably mainly centered on falsely portraying President Donald Trump as someone who’s allegedly racist towards Muslims.
“We have seen what happens when a president fans the flames: hate crimes on the march, more kids bullied in school, a rise of anti-Muslim bigotry. This is not who we are. Abraham Lincoln told us at Gettysburg, ‘a house divided cannot stand,’” he said.
“Today, trust is ebbing, hope seems elusive, instead of healing we are being ripped apart, and I refuse to let that happen. We have too bright a future to leave it shipwrecked on the shores of anger and division.”

While there’s arguably nothing wrong with Biden reaching out to Muslim Americans and promising them that they’ll treat them fairly, there’s arguably something very wrong with promising Muslims seats within the government.
In 2017 the Pew Research Center estimated that Muslims comprise just 1.1 percent of the U.S. population, meaning that it would most likely require racial quotas to ensure that “Muslim Americans [are] serving at every level” of the government.
And were racial quotas to be established within the federal government, it’d require a total rewriting of how the government currently bases its hiring decisions.
The current system — one based on merit — has been active since the 1880s, according to Lumen Learning.
“Beginning with the Pendleton Act in the 1880s, the bureaucracy shifted away from the spoils system toward a merit system. The distinction between these two forms of bureaucracy is crucial. The evolution toward a civil service in the United States had important functional consequences,” the learning platform notes.
“Today the United States has a civil service that carefully regulates hiring practices and pay to create an environment in which, it is hoped, the best people to fulfill each civil service responsibility are the same people hired to fill those positions.”

Prior to the act being implemented, hires were often based on politics. Sound familiar? It should, because the notion of racial quotas is itself highly political.
Another problem with Biden’s promise to the Muslim community is that it suggests his policy decisions, particularly those related to Islamic terrorism, could be corrupted just like the policy decisions of former President Barack Hussein Obama had been.
During Obama’s presidency, now-deceased Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney revealed how the then-president had blocked him from investigating Islamic radicalism on the basis that investigating terrorism was somehow racist.
Speaking with then-Fox News host Megyn Kelly in late 2015, Haney explained that about a year into an investigation that had led his team to one of the mosques that San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook had attended, officials from the State Department and the Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties showed up at his office to pull the plug.
The remarks were made only days after Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, committed a terror attack in San Bernardino that left 14 innocent victims dead.
According to Haney, the attack may have been prevented had he been allowed to continue his investigation.
“Either Syed would have been put on the no-fly list because association with that mosque, and/or the K-1 visa that his wife was given may have been denied because of his association with a known organization,” he said.
Watch his discussion with Kelly below:
Haney was eventually pushed out of the administration, after which he became a whistleblower.
The attitude of Biden, who as a reminder served as Obama’s vice president, strongly suggests similar events could play out in his administration, with intelligence officials again being sidelined for the sake of political correctness.
Speaking of which, during his remarks to Muslims this week, he also vowed to “end Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim Ban.”
The so-called “Muslim ban” was a ban on travel to and from nations where Islamic terrorism is prevalent, and at the time of the ban’s implementation, a 52 percent majority of Americans favored it as an “anti-terrorist measure,” according to Rasmussen Reports.
But with Biden in office, this 52 percent majority of Americans would be out of luck just so that a one percent minority of Americans don’t take offense …
