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.
SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
