Far-left members of the House have offered a resolution to make July Muslim American Heritage Month. Is it coincidental that they chose July? That would mean Americans would get one day, Independence Day but Muslims would get the entire month.
Ostensibly, they want recognition for all of the accomplishments of Muslims in this country., I do have something in common with those offering this resolution. None of us can name what those contributions could be.
Indeed, when the resolution was offered, not don’t accomplishment was named. This country was well established before most Muslims came to this country.
The resolution is being promoted by Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar but they have been joined by a multitude of their liberal colleagues. They could start celebrating as early as next year. I did just think of an accomplishment they had. They were able to permanently alter the New York skyline.
You know. When somebody did something?
Rep. Karen Bass declared:
“I’m proud to join my House colleagues in introducing this legislation to acknowledge and appreciate the numerous contributions and achievements of Muslim Americans – both throughout history and today.” Rep. André Carson (D-Uncharismatic), the least headline-grabbing Muslim in Congress, chimed in: “As a proud Muslim-American Member of Congress, I am pleased to join my colleagues in introducing this resolution. Muslim-Americans have played a major role in shaping our nation for centuries.”
“This legacy is something we should celebrate and share. Designating July as Muslim-American Heritage Month is a wonderful opportunity to honor the trailblazers who came before us, thank the Muslim-Americans currently making history, and inspire the upcoming generations who will help lead our country into the future.”
You know, like our Founding Fathers, Mohammed Washington and Hamdi Franklin.
But of course, there are the antebellum Muslim Senators who joined Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, and John C. Calhoun in the great debate over slavery, and who then left Congress to fight on the Union side in the Civil War, right? Wrong. Of course, there were no Muslim senators at all, because there was virtually no Muslim presence at all in the early decades of the United States, contrary to the woke wishful thinking of Bass, Carson, and the others who co-sponsored this resolution.
If there had been Muslim senators, and they were adhering to Islam’s tenets, they would likely have been pro-slavery, because slavery is sanctioned in Islam. It is no accident that the abolitionist movement arose in a Christian milieu in Britain and the United States, while numerous Muslim countries only abolished slavery far later, and under Western pressure. The Qur’an has Allah telling Muhammad that he has given him girls as sex slaves: “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty” (Qur’an 33:50). Islamic tradition depicts Muhammad buying slaves, taking female infidel captives as slaves, and owning slaves.
