Republicans and FOX "News" spend a lot of time trying to instill fear in those who listen to them. They bellow about socialism and terrorism and guns and taxes in an effort to make voters so fearful of Democrats that they'll vote against their own interests because they equate the Democrats with something worse. FDR once said "we have nothing to fear but fear itself", and that fear is what they peddle.
One fear they traffic in quite often is the absurd nation that somehow the U.S. will adopt Muslim Sharia law. They never quite explain how, or which laws, they just put throw that out there like a lit package of firecrackers and watch everyone run for cover. The irony, of course, is that religious law IS becoming a problem here in the U.S. - it just isn't the Muslim variety.
