Carolyn Walker-Diallo, Muslim judge, sworn in on Koran in Brooklyn
defund.com Daily News reports:
Carolyn Walker-Diallo, who was elected last month in Brooklyn’s 7th Municipal District, took her oath of office Thursday using the holy book of Islam as a testament to her Muslim faith.
The swearing-in session went off without a hitch, but after attendees posted video of the ceremony to social media, the backlash became so severe that some of Walker-Diallo’s supporters became concerned for her safety.
“Sickening,” one Facebook user posted in response to the video. “Is this America or the Middle East.”
“Another piece of s— Muslim,” another user wrote, “trying to take over this country.”
Walker-Diallo did not return calls for comment.
