BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Republican state lawmaker in North Dakota said he doesn’t know how a pair of anti-Islam posts appeared in his Facebook feed, and speculated Tuesday that his account may have been hacked by political opponents.

The Fargo Forum first reported on the posts Tuesday, saying a post shared from Rep. Jim Kasper's account reads: “The whole world has one common problem( Islam.”

“I don’t know how the hell it got there and I took it down immediately," Kasper said of the posts that appeared Monday night on his Facebook page. “It's political season and the time to do political tricks has started. It's a sad state of affairs this stuff has to happen."

According to the newspaper, another post shared from Kasper’s account read: "Minnesota's Twin Cities are lost" to "the Islamic Movement."

2. It's weird how their accounts are NEVER "hacked" to endorse Marxism or say they are a ninja

It's always some crypto-Nazi vitriol they spew... er, get "hacked" to say.
