Ilhan Omar in 2013: ‘Sadly’ Some Muslims Celebrate Christmas

The Minnesota Democrat apparently isn’t a fan of the Christmas spirit.

Minnesota’s Rep. Ilhan Omar apparently isn’t a fan of the Christmas spirit, and spoke in disapproving terms of other Muslims who choose to celebrate the Christian holiday in a 2013 tweet.

According to Omar, it’s unfortunate that some Muslim Americans should choose to celebrate a storied American holiday.

Islamic reformer Imam Tawhidi shared the old tweet on Thursday.

Some Muslims do in fact celebrate Christmas, and the practice isn’t as uncommon as Omar’s tweet might make it seem. Jesus is revered as a prophet in Islam. Perhaps ironically, it may be more common for Muslims in Islamic countries(usually with substantial Christian minority populations) to celebrate Christmas than in the west.

Some American Jews also celebrate Christmas in a secularized fashion.

Since being elected, Omar hasn’t spoken of the same spiteful anti-Christmas sentiment. She even went so far as to wish the constituents of her district a Merry Christmas, but her holiday greetings might seem hollow in light of her remarks about the tradition back in 2013.

Omar has increasingly become a progressive leader in the Democratic Party. There are other reasons to believe she harbors a fair degree of Islamist views, including a vote against official recognition of the Armenian genocide.

It’s hard to think of a cultural position more alienating to Americans- be they residents of a liberal district in Minnesota, or the most conservative areas of the country- than actively discouraging celebration of Christmas. Perhaps Omar would prefer living in a country where celebration of the holiday is actively repressed.

Stanford University Babies Demand “Removal” of College Republicans from Campus

A new low of intolerance.

Published

on

Left-wing crybabies at Stanford University are demanding that the school’s College Republicans chapter be wholly removed from campus in a new article for the campus newspaper, citing a laundry list of violations against the liberal religion. The appeal for deplatforming was made in an article in the Stanford Daily.

Stanford CR’s are known as a strong America First chapter of the organization, refusing the bow before the establishment College Republicans’ modus operandi of insider connections and backroom deals with political power brokers.

California College Republicans are pledging to fight back, refusing to cave as the Stanford Daily’s Claire Dinshaw demands the Stanford College Republicans be purged from campus. Dinshaw describes herself as a senior at the elite university minoring in political science and feminism, gender and sexuality studies.

The Stanford Republicans responded to the display of intolerance on Friday.

Dinshaw cites the standard university-liberal schpiel of “racist, misogynistic and hateful rhetoric” in her censorship demand, in addition to claiming supposed “transphobic rhetoric.” Dinshaw also refers to incidences of the Stanford College Republicans fighting back against Antifa-style thugs who have attempted to disrupt their events, claiming that publicizing the identities of left-wing militants who have tried to destroy their materials and presentations represents some sort of mortal threat to their lives.

Dinshaw’s political purge demand may be facilitated by Stanford’s status as a private university, where left-wing managerial elites are free to silence and censor anyone who they deem a threat to liberal hegemony. However, the academic integrity of Stanford will be revealed as little more than a sham if university administrators cave to her demands, with free expression reserved for recitations of left-wing ideas.
