Jen Psaki Claims Muslims Are Being Tricked By GOP to Oppose Wokeism

'The left wants to scare Muslims into accepting its indoctrination of our children in exchange for a smile and pat on the head...'

(Headline USAFormer White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Sunday that Muslim Americans were being “recruited” by the GOP to oppose woke ideology.

Referencing recent protests by Muslim families who are concerned about woke content in their public schools—specifically that related to LGBT and transgender issues—Psaki suggested on her new MSNBC show, Inside with Jen Psaki, that Muslims were being tricked into opposing other minority groups.

“I’ve been noticing the reemergence of a very old GOP playbook,” Psaki said, suggesting former President Richard Nixon encouraged the fear of black people in order to draw the votes of white people. 

“And it worked by pitting one group of Americans against another, the GOP successfully managed to split off southern whites from the Democratic Party,” she added.

The Republican Party is now “trying to recruit Muslim Americans, a community that makes up less than 2% of the U.S. population, against another tiny, marginalized group of Americans: transgender people,” Psaki continued.

“Ten years ago, standing against Sharia law was the key GOP litmus test,” Psaki claimed. “Now that litmus test seems to be held fervently to oppose transgender people.”

Psaki called this “same old GOP playbook” a “cynical ploy to tear at the fabric of our society and damage the idea that out of many, we are one—all because they want so desperately to regain the White House.”

Ismail Royer, the director of the Islam and Religious Freedom Action Team for the Religious Freedom Institute, blasted Psaki’s remarks as insulting to the many Muslim families who oppose the ideology she represents.

“The left wants to scare Muslims into accepting its indoctrination of our children in exchange for a smile and pat on the head,” Royer said in a statement. “They insult Muslims by portraying us as having no agency or intelligence but can’t imagine that we’ve weighed the bargain they offer us and rejected it.”
