Tenn. Lawmakers Reassured That Mop Sink Isn’t Sink For Muslims To Wash Feet

A few Tennessee lawmakers apparently inquired whether a new sink at the state capitol designed for custodial use was a sink for Muslims to wash their feet in before prayer, theAssociated Press reported Monday. The lawmakers were reassured that it is simply a “mop sink.”

“I confirmed with the facility administrator for the State Capitol Complex that the floor-level sink installed in the men’s restroom outside the House Chamber is for housekeeping use,” Legislative Administration Director Connie Ridley wrote in an email. “It is, in layman’s terms, a mop sink.”

The Tennessee Capitol underwent renovations in December, the AP reported, and the sink is designed to make it easier for custodial staff to clean mops and fill buckets. The sink is located in a men’s bathroom outside the House chamber. 

As TPM has reported, Tennessee is no stranger to controversy when it comes to Islam. In 2011, legislation was proposed to make Sharia law illegal. And in February 2012, a group of police officers in the state attended a training seminar held by a man who has claimed that Muslims should not be granted First Amendment rights.

    Whew, that was close! Sure glad that sink was for mops and not Moozlems. Those good Christians could’ve lost their souls.

    Jeeeezzz. And they’re sure it was Arabs that did 9-11. If you told them Israel did 9-11 you’d probably get your ass beat. I wish I had the funds to become an ex-patriot. I’d go where there were no jews. Maybe if I got a quarter from every asshole Christian zionist, I could.

    Hey! That’d be $15 Million bucks!!! Hmmmm. If I said it was a charity for poor, hungry Israeli kids, I’d have it in a week! Yeah, that’s my ticket!

    CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!! How stupid do you have to be to think that a custodial sink is something someone like a Muslim or anyone would wash there feet in! How paranoid,predigest and ludicrous these people are! Instead of worrying about custodial sinks and if a Muslim might use it for some bizarre reason! Maybe its time to lay off the Jack Daniels Cocktails at lunch!

    I find it comical when I hear Americans like Robert Spencer , Pamela Geller, and their demonic ilk speak loudly proclaiming that ”Sharia is being enforced in America”. When in reality all the laws being enacted are Jewish in their nature. The Constitution is being shredded in front of your eyes, by who? Feinstein, Lieberman, the list is endless, and they are nearly all Jews.

    Is there any end to the constant idiocy these freaks conjure up just to bash Islam????? I mean really. Come on guys, are you really that stupid? Oh I know the answer already and it is a resounding affirmative. What in the blazes have these imbeciles been huffing any way, loads of crazy glue, paint thinner and brake solvents?? Only a mindless souless CLUELESS moron would even assume such a ridiculous notion. ‘Uh is that floor sink for dem Mooselums? Ah don’ wanna share a restroom with some damn rag head!’
    You freaking Zionist Christians in particular make me SICK!! You’re all a bunch of craven suckups. Have mercy!!!

    I can’t stop laughing! Who comes up with these idiot ideas? I truly can’t believe the stupidity in this country. It looks like some executive’s bathroom converted into a custodial washroom.
