That Mike Pompeo is facing criticism as our next U.S. Secretary of State is not all that surprising. After all, as chief U.S. diplomat, the position calls for diplomacy.

So when Pompeo is called on the floor for making incendiary remarks about Muslims and gays, that’s cause for concern.

Taking a page from radical terrorists, Pompeo is on record accusing Muslims of having a global mission to eradicate Christians. After the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Pompeo, then representing Kansas’s 4th Congressional District, accused local Muslim leaders of being complicit in the attacks, though no proof existed.
