President Trump has stirred the pot again.
Actually, he probably enjoys stirring up his opponents and even if he doesn’t, he’s damn good at it.
And this is not a man who is easily intimidated.
The Obama administration went out of its way to cater to Muslim interests even though Obama claimed to be a Christian. Of course, that statement created no shortage of debate and acrimonious controversy.
Perhaps the truth was best expressed by the observation that he really is not an adherent of any religion, but rather supports the one that offers the most political benefit at the time.
Mr. Trump chose to refrain from hosting a White House dinner marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but instead sent his well wishes to the Muslims in America.
As a result, the left is outraged…despite the President’s very friendly message he sent in lieu of the dinner.
Via BizPac Review:
“‘Tolerant’ Muslims and virtue-signaling liberals are outraged that President Donald Trump, a Christian, chose not to host a White House dinner commemorating the end of Ramadan this year.
Instead, Trump issued a warm statement wishing Muslims a happy Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.
‘On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.
With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values. Eid Mubarak.’
Leftists who aren’t even religious trashed Trump for ‘breaking’ a White House tradition that only started with Bill Clinton in 1996 and continued through Barack Hussein Obama.
The leftist hypocrisy in slamming Trump as islamophobic is laughable, considering many public schools bar Christian prayers and the Christian greeting ‘Merry Christmas.’
In 2015, Samantha Dawson — an 8-year-old elementary school student in San Francisco — was suspended for wishing her homeroom teacher ‘Merry Christmas.’ Liberals ignored that anti-Christian attack.”
The problem is that Muslims, a very small minority in our country, are demanding implementation of their laws and mandatory observance of their holidays and traditions.
They have the right to practice their faith. About this there is no question. They do NOT have the right to demand others do so.
Freedom of religion works both ways, something many of the Islamic faith either do not understand or refuse to accept.
By the way, in how many Islamic nations do you see the leaders hosting Christmas and Easter celebrations as official state functions?
