A tradition that started in 2001 under the Bush administration after Muslim terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, resulting in the deaths of over 3,000 Americans, has apparently run its course.
President Trump issued a statement Saturday greeting Muslims as they celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, breaking with nearly two decades of tradition of holding an iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan. (As reported by The Hill)
“On behalf of the American people,” President Trump said in the statement, “Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.”
It was a shit tradition that George W started, presumably to ease the growing tension between Muslims and justifiably angry Americans following the 911 attacks. It’s a smart play by president Trump, partly because you don’t ban Muslims from entering the country and then invite them to dinner, but mainly because it’s an archaic religion surrounded by hateful, violent ideologies- and one that shouldn’t be celebrated by the state.
Eid al Fitr- The celebration of the end of Ramadan. Celebrated every year at the White House for the past 2 decades, features an explosive menu with some appetizers that are to die for and entrees that are out of this 3rd world.
Ramadan, being the Muslim holiday that starts on May 26th and lasts until June 24th. A period of time where the “religion of peace” was responsible for over 150 terror attacks, resulting in nearly 1400 deaths in just 27 days. The left will blame “right wing islamophobia” for the radicalization of “moderate” Muslims, but don’t buy into that bullshit. A phobia is an irrational fear. Scroll up and re-read those statistics and tell me if we’re being irrational. And what does the word moderate mean, anyways? It doesn’t mean peaceful, it doesn’t mean radical, it means, in the middle. And if all it takes for a “moderate” Muslim to radicalize, is the citizens of the country they’re trying to infiltrate pointing out verifiable violent behavior, maybe banning them all is a pretty damn rational idea.
We are at war with these monsters. Their culture is incompatible with western culture. They hate us because we aren’t like them. They hate us because we don’t praise their god, they hate us because we don’t oppress our women, they hate us because we don’t execute homosexuals. They want to kill us because we won’t convert to their evil, violent, archaic religion of hate; and they’d rather see us dead than free, and they won’t stop until we’re all dead. Let’s not celebrate their holidays. Good move Mr. President.
