In a conference call this week with E.W. Jackson, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin warned that to counteract the population growth of America’s Muslim minority, “Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans.”
Fearing that America would soon go the way of a Europe that he claimed is “hopelessly lost” to Muslim population growth, Boykin insisted that “Americans” (among whom he evidently doesn’t include Muslim-Americans) must increase the average birth rate to supersede that of the country’s less-than-one-percent Muslim minority. “It is a very serious issue, which is why Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans,” he said.
Boykin also claimed that President Obama’s “identity is more with Islam than with anything else,” citing myths about the president’s the so-called “apology tour” in 2009 and his supposed education in a “madrassa.”
“And I think that all goes back to his roots, to the fact that he was raised in an Islamic environment,” he said. “I think he went to a madrassa for, it’s undetermined, but at least five years of his life. I think that’s his comfort zone. And I think he was in Jeremiah Wright’s church as a matter of convenience, but his identity is more with Islam than with anything else.”
In reality, Obama attended a Catholic school and a secular public school in Indonesia.
