    ‘Is Anybody Paying Attention?!’ Chip Roy Says He’s Concerned ‘Sharia Law’ Will Be ‘Forced Upon the American People’

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) expressed concern on the House floor on Tuesday that Islamic “Sharia law” will soon be “forced upon the American people.”

    During a bizarre rant, Roy questioned, “How many campaign ads, how many speeches are going to be given by my Republican colleagues between now and November about what they will do to secure the border? And what are they doing right now? Shrugging! ‘Sorry! Can’t do anything!'”

    He protested, “We’re shrugging it off! We’re pretending it’s not happening! I mean, is anybody paying attention to what’s happening in London?!”

    Roy – who has repeatedly attacked Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, for not doing enough to protect the southern border – then claimed:

    You’ve got a massive Muslim takeover of the United Kingdom going on right before our eyes. People say, “Chip, well what is wrong with that?” Well, I’ve got some pretty strong concerns about Sharia law and whether that will be forced upon the American people. In this case, the people of the United Kingdom. I’ve got pretty strong concerns about people who want to see Israel’s destruction, who were happy about October 7, who were elected in the United Kingdom! Some might say that we’ve seen that here in the United States. What are we gonna do about that?

    We have 51.5 million people who are foreign-born in the United States. They have about 20-25 million kids. That puts that well over 20 something percent of the population and it’s the highest such number in the history of our country. People say, “Well isn’t that great?” Is it? Are we teaching people about Western civilization? Are we teaching people about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the rule of law? Are we teaching them Western values? Are we teaching them God exists? Are we teaching them the importance of freedom? Or are we teaching an entire generation, or two, or three to run around complaining about what’s wrong and why the entire world is against them because of their skin color, their sex, their supposed gender identity?

    Last week, Roy expressed concern on social media over the election of a Muslim in the U.K. who celebrated his victory with chants of “Allahu Akbar.”

    “Coming to America,” commented Roy.

    Roy also shared a video captioned, “Dark times ahead,” which showed an old clip of extremists chanting, “Sharia for U.K.!” in London.
