Ah, the leftist crapfactory that is California. It’s the home of all things progressive. Strict gun control, LGBT inclusive school curriculum, and now… Muslim Appreciation Month. Just when you thought Muslims were appreciated all year around (what with the media never once tying Islam to anything other than PEACE) they now have a dedicated month. For extra, super-duper appreciation. The California State Assembly introduced the idea on Monday. Because California wouldn’t be complete were it not for the enchanting sound of Muslim morning prayer.
On Monday, August 1, the California chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-CA) [joined] Assembly member Bill Quirk in the presentation of House Resolution 59, which recognizes the month of August 2016 as “Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month.”
“I am proud to celebrate the first ever Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month by honoring generations of Muslim Americans for their many social, cultural, and economic contributions to California,” Assembly member Quirk stated. “The rhetoric surrounding this election makes the presentation of this resolution more important for me,” He said. “It is appropriate to acknowledge and promote awareness of the myriad invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California…”
Look, it’s one thing to genuinely feel appreciation towards a specific group who helped build society. For instance, our forefathers. Heck, even horses. But this? I’m not sure it’s accurate, or even feasible for that matter. Has Islam contributed enough to California to fill up an entire month? Think about it for a second, what famous (or non famous) Muslim has made California better? It’s okay, you can cheat on this one. Googling is totally allowed here.
Assembly member Quirk (yes, his real name, you can’t make this stuff up) talks about “The myriad of invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California…” But fails to detail any of these countless feats. Again, feel free to Google this one. Perhaps Quirk is referring to Islam’s latest contribution to California? You know, the San Bernardino attack…? The one that left 14 dead (see Liberal Narrative BUSTED: San Bernardino Killer Pledged Allegiance to ISIS). Ringing a bell?
We here at LwC are ahead of the game when it comes to this whole “Muslim Awareness” thing. So to kick off the start of Muslim Awareness Month, here’s last month’s Islamic contributions to the world:
- ISIS Raids Church in Normandy, France. Beheads Priest…
- Horrific Terrorist Attack in Nice, France.
- ‘Moderate’ British Muslim Cleric to Teens: Sex Slaves are A-OK!
- Muslims Shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ at Munich Memorial
- GERMANY: Student Refuses Handshake With Female Principal. Because Islam?
- Moderate Islam: Twin Brothers Stab Entire Family… For Opposing ISIS
- Swedish Police Give Out ‘Do Not Molest’ Bracelets Amidst Music Festival. Islamic Migrants Ignore…
The biggest issue with these “Appreciation Months” is that they’re minority pandering tools for leftists (i.e. Black History Month). Condescension level ten. These groups are told they matter solely by their religion, the color of their skin, etc. What the Assembly fails to see is the individual underneath the burka. A beaten and oppressed one, sure, but an individual nonetheless. And unless she’s waving the ISIS foam finger, she might not want to be lumped in with the rest of the Muslim population. That is if she’s the elusive “moderate” Muslim the left keeps lecturing us about (read Dear Moderate Muslims: We NEED You to Fight Against Islamic Terrorism). The rest of the Muslim population sucks. Hence the actions listed above detailing said suckage.
If Muslims truly want to be a vital part of America, they should feel free to do so. Actively fighting against terrorism is a good start. Throwing together a fake Appreciation Month? Not so much.
