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.

Cultish.

A crowd of white liberals in Bethesda, Maryland, were seen kneeling for a bizarre ritual in support of the Black Lives Matter movement that can only be adequately described as something resembling a religious proceedings.

Watch the strange footage here:

“I will use my voice in the most uplifting way possible.”

*Crowd repeats the phrase in monotone*

“I will do everything in my power to educate my community.”

“I will love my black neighbors the same as my white ones.”

*Crowd repeats*

Not even any real policy suggestions. Just empty appeals to social justice without any real substance.

Such mass monotone chanting of pre-prepared slogans has long been not only an element of the world’s major religions, but also elements of authoritarian political belief systems, such as those seen in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

Even some political commentators on the Left who support the George Floyd protests and accompanying riots called out the organized ritual as a useless display of conformist moral virtue, recognizing that the performance didn’t actually contribute anything to society.

Bethesda, Maryland is one of the most affluent communities in the country, and it’s doubtful the privileged liberal elite actually stand anything to lose from their support of the movement within the de facto gated community.
