Republicans should invite these Muslims to Obama's SOTU

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Muslim congressman Keith Ellison are sending out an adjective-laden “Dear Colleague” letter to encourage politicians from both parties to consider inviting a Muslim to the State of the Union (SOTU) as a show of American solidarity. Typically, this sort of thing should be treated like any another vacuous gesture, but this also happens to be a political stunt intended to reinforce the Democratic party narrative about the rise of rampant Islamophobia, starring Donald Trump as Hitler.

So here are a couple of ideas for Republicans: Why not also bring a relative of someone killed by Islamic terrorists at San Bernardino or at Fort Hood, or maybe the relatives of an infantryman who lost his life fighting terrorism overseas? Now, I realize the current presidential administration, along with many others, believes the true victims in this situation are the ones who have to hear ugly words from a rogue presidential candidate, but guests who have suffered from violence at the hands of Islamic terrorists might provide some much-needed perspective.
