Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council Board Member Says Constitution is Document of White Supremacy

Tennessee’s American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) board member Drost Kokoye says the U.S. Constitution “is a document that writes white supremacy into law.”

Those were the exact words Kokoye used in a tweet sent from her Twitter account on September 17, 2014–the 227th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution at the close of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787:

Kokoye is a Kurdish refugee who, as a young child, came to live in Nashville, grew up there and was educated in Nashville’s public schools. While attending college at Middle Tennessee State University, she worked for the TN Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) as a “Multicultural Organizer.”

TIRRC offers workshops encouraging immigrants to become citizens and assists them through the naturalization process, after which TIRRC says they can represent “the immigrant vote” in elections.

In 2012, Kokoye was featured in TIRRC’s “New American Voter” campaign:

Voting gives me the opportunity to voice what not every immigrant or refugee can yet. It’s my chance to choose the people and laws that will allow others to practice this freedom I now have.

While still in college and serving as the “Civic Engagement Coordinator” for the American Center for Outreach, a Muslim-centric organization inter-connected to the AMAC, Kokoye rejected her status and identity as an American citizen:

Kokoye’s extreme anti-Americanism fits the findings of The Hudson Institute’s America’s Patriotic Assimilation System is Broken report. Using a quantitative analysis of interactive survey data comparing native-born and naturalized citizens, the study concluded that a “large ‘patriotic gap’ exists between native-born citizens and immigrant citizens on issues of patriotic attachment and civic knowledge. Despite what some may believe, native-born citizens have a much higher degree of patriotic attachment to the United States than naturalized citizens.”

According to the report’s authors, there are different reasons that “the patriotic assimilation of immigrants to American identity is weak and ambivalent” but attribute part of the problem to American leaders having moved the norm for immigrant assimilation away from “Americanization” and replacing it with a multiculturalism approach “that emphasizes ethnic group consciousness at the expense of American common culture.”

Analysis of the survey data that support the Hudson Institute’s conclusions include:

  • There was a large gap of about 31 points on whether schools should focus on pride in being part of America or pride in their own ethnic group or heritage. 81.2% of native-born citizens said schools should focus more on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and pride in being part of America rather than an emphasis on ethnic pride; 49.5% of the naturalized citizens adhered to this view. Moreover, more naturalized citizens (31.7%) compared to the native-born (8.4%) thought it more important for schools to focus on ethnic identity.
  • 82% of native-born citizens compared to 67% of immigrant citizens say the schools should teach more about the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and other founding documents.
  • Significantly more native-born citizens think that Americans share a unique national identity based on shared beliefs, values and culture.
  • Native-born citizens are more suspicious than naturalized citizens of multinational corporations that consider themselves to be global companies with no more responsibility to America than to any other country.
  • 67.3% of the native-born think the U.S. Constitution should be the highest legal authority for Americans, but the majority of immigrant citizens think differently.

Changes in U.S. demographics has been used to justify retaining multicultural assimilation policies, whereas changing demographics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries resulted instead in policies that emphasized national unity over diversity:

The decision ultimately rested on the firm moral vision of the concept of equality of individual citizenship the foundation of American liberal democracy. In a liberal constitutional democracy such as ours, individual citizens voluntarily join a wide variety of groups, but their legal rights are not supposed to be based on the ethnic or racial group into which one is born.

Results of a 2015 Polling Company survey of Muslims in the U.S. released by the Center for Security Policy found that “a majority (51%) agreed that ‘Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah [Islamic law] and “[m]ore than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.”

    Love the comments on this and it boils my blood to have this Muslim immigrant insult our constitutional Republic, this is part of the stealth Jihad. Please read the book The Muslim Mafia

    Immigration only works when immigrants assimilate. Multiculturalism has never done anything but destroy ever country in which it was allowed to flourish. If you come here to promote what you left then why did you come here? Assimiilate or go home. We should not adjust to you. You need to adjust to us.

    Then get out of my Country and carry your infadells with you. Here in the South we like Bar-B-Q and Ole Glory.
    Your family and you had nothing to do with founding this country. Hi go back where your culture allows men to rape little boys and you turn your head.
    We don’t need this tye of rederick in this state. Love, or Leave it!

    I guess she does not read her Quran often. It is a book of Muslim male dominance that unlike the Constitution can not be changed to give women rughts. To allow women to drive cars or vote or to wear the clothing they want. Women are property to be bought and sold by their family men. The same book that says she is not equal to a man and should be beaten if she does wrong in a man’s eyes.
    Nobody is holding you here by force. Leave anytime you want.

    The day grows close when a purge of this infestation will begin. Let us not forget those who opened the doors to this filth. OBAMA and the Democratic party.
    It all needs to go. It will, shortly

    Americans had better wake up and realize that Muslims like her are Hell bent in unraveling our Constitution and implementing their preferred Sharia Law. Our Constitution is facing a Real Threat from Islamic adherants, Jihadists and Criminal Political Hacks who despise our Country and our Rule of Law.

    Patriots must step up to the task of defending our Liberties and our Constitution. Identify the threats and REMOVE each one, before the infestations grow worse !

    Yes, the muslima who thinks the U.S. Constitution is only a white supremacist document, and that she’s a Kurd, not an American, is a traitor and should go back to Kurdistan where she could actually do some good. She could work for the muslimas there where the rate for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) runs around 72%. In case you don’t know what FGM is, it means that the clitoris is removed in order to cut down on the female’s sexual desire. As a female, does this concern her? Or does she only care about the progressive “hate” America campaign?

    Is she’s getting her law degree at UTK to use it to undermine our U.S. freedoms that are enshrined in the “white supremacist” document? What she doesn’t know in her ignorance, and obviously hasn’t learned in school, is that this document has enabled us to get to the place where she and her family and many others can come to this country and enjoy its generous gifts and freedoms. What an ingrate!

      As far as I am concerned, any immigrant ingrate is welcome to go back to whatever hellhole from which he, she, they or it came. There are lots of other immigrants who would love to come and be part of the solution and not part of the problem (ingrates).

    Send the Muslim bimbo back home! Problem solved.

    Any threat to the constitution should be considered and act of terrorism.

  11. Bob

    Any threat to the constitution should be deemed as a terrorist threat. I will protect it with my life.
