If one didn’t understand the dynamics of race/white supremacy, almost nothing about US politics would make any sense. #theideathatgoprepresentsreligiousvaluesisajoke

While writing for his personal blog, Ryan praised Islamic terrorists and openly called for jihad. In a now-deleted post, he extols Anwar al-Awlaki, the former leader of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, as an articulate and “fearless” speaker. Al-Awlaki was the mastermind behind the Fort Hood Shooting and the attempted Christmas Day bombing attack of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit, Michigan.
Ryan further applauds the “Mujahideen,” or Islamic guerrilla fighters, for resisting the American presence in Iraq and bringing an “Islamic revival” that will establish an Islamic State in the Middle East.
In 2008, Ryan posted a “nasheed” sung by Islamic jihadists and fundamentalists. Nasheeds are religious Capellas that are popular in the Muslim world. In this particular one, the lyrics feature a chant that calls for jihad.
According to the website, Muslim Matters, Ryan converted to Islam in 1994, accrediting heavy influence from Malcolm X, the National Representative for the Nation of Islam and a prominent black nationalist.
