Democrat Ilhan Omar On Hijabs In US Congress: “It’s Important For The Law To Be Changed”

Two days ago, the Democratic caucus in Congress voted for Ms Nancy Pelosi as their official leader. It is now becoming clear which price she had to pay in order to get the support of the progressive part of her party.

You may think that the ‘party of the workers,’ as Mr Bernie Sanders always portrays the Democrats, would firstly think about the layoffs at General Motors of this week and the people whose Christmas has been ruined, but the truth about their priorities seems a bit further off.

Quite sure we will hear about healthcare and universal tuition in a few days, but for now, we will have to do with the first media storm of Congresswoman-elect Ms Ilhan Omar, who openly stated that the first change she wants to bring about is the possibility to wear her hijab in the US Congress and this change a 181-year-old law which prohibits the wearing of hats in the House.

Speaking Arabic to the worldwide BBC Channel, Ms Omar explained: “I'm a Muslim woman who wears a hijab. It’s important for the law to be changed so that I can wear my hijab in Congress and perform my duties.”

“When I was elected, we realized there was a law in place that would prevent me from wearing a hijab in Congress. I was given an opportunity to lead efforts to change the law. We have the support of many people, they are happy about it.”

“I hope that Muslim women elected after me will find it easier. I hope it will also help others whose faith requires them to cover their heads. I hope this will also help our Muslim schoolgirls who feel challenged or harassed when they wear a headscarf. When they see me, they will be able to say with confidence: Don’t talk about my headscarf because there is a Muslim woman sitting in Congress wearing one.”

Democratic House leader and expected next speaker, Ms Nancy Pelosi, agrees with Ms Omar’s idea and has thus formally proposed to ditch this 181-year-old ban on headwear in order to “ensure religious expression.” As Ms Pelosi explained, “After voters elected the most diverse Congress in history, clarifying the antiquated rule banning headwear will further show the remarkable progress we have made as a nation.”

Oh, so now we want government to dictate religious edicts? Where are the snowflakes and ACLU liberal morons on this? Now they want laws enacted to promote a religion and a false one at that!

Some one explain how this is not a clear violation of the separation of church and state. It CLEARLY violates the Constitution.

“It’s Important For The Law To Be Changed”

No, your wrong. America was founded under God, not Mohamed. Muslims make it plain that they obey only sharia.

We the People will not be governed by sharia law nor any of it`s agents no matter how kindly the deception is sugarcoated. We know the endgame is for the oppression of all under sharia law.

Dorrie No. 92002 2018-12-01 : 21:34

NO! Our laws should NOT be changed for Islam! Muslims who want to live here MUST assimilate into our culture, not think we should bend to theirs! If they can't do that, they don't belong here!!

Get that vile incestuous cretin and her sick cult out of America.

To the guy who wants to “prise” Allah. You got a serious problem when you follow a prophet who marries little girls. There is something seriously screwed up in the head of any pedophile like that. Offending a little one makes you a prime candidate for a millstone around your neck as you drop into water which would be an easier judgement than than the you are going to get when you stand before the judge of all men.

Of course it doesn't fall under separation of church and state, islam is not a religion, it is a murderous cult.

As long as I can legally wear my MAGA hat anywhere I want without getting attacked, doxxed and losing my job, sure you can have your hijab.

The muslim cult is not compatible with the USA. The only reason this abomination is in our country is because of the evil liberals and evilbama. All muslims should be deported and now. These militant murderers will not rest until we are all converted to the rapist and murderer allah and his book of death and murder the Koran or have a civil war against them. I for one will not stand around and let those scumbags rape and murder my Christian daughters! The terrible realization that the house was taken over by criminals shows how far down the toilet our country has gone down thanks to corrupt fake republicans and dirtbag democrats who told their constituents to go to hell for the love of money and satan!

P.S. All you homosexuals, if you voted for a liberal to support your lifestyle you just shot yourself in the foot by allowing muslims to gain a foothold in our country. The muslims hate homosexuals!

Ill hands Omar is already trying to start changing our laws to suit her idiot cult. I'm betting she only won in the election by vote fraud like most of the rest of the demonrats did. Watch and see now if she doesn't start trying to slowly sneak in Sharia laws. That's the way they always do it. Most of the other countries have been overrun with these savages and are having Sharia law overtake them. These evil people won't stop until they have the world under islamic law.

Let’s hear from the Christians in unison!
“OUR GOD CAN BEAT UP YOUR god!!!” Did Muhamed get sacrificed to save my soul? NO.
Did Jesus Christ get sacrificed on a cross, in front of many witnesses, to take the punishment for all of humanities sins? YES HE DID!!! Jesus Christ is my Savior. Muhamed is your deceiver and teacher of hate.Seek out the Truth He will set you free from the burden of shariah lies. Jesus has never and will never FORCE you to love Him. Forced love is not true love!
