The tradition of holding Ramadan festivities at the White House has been in place since Bill Clinton’s time and has been one of the main cultural calendar events ever since. But not any more. Rex Tillerson has declared that they won’t be held at the WH…And why should they? Ramadan is not an American holiday, it has no special significance to the majority of Americans, so why should festivities be held in the most important office in the country?
There are many American Muslims, who are free to observe Ramadan in any way they please (that is the beauty of religious freedom), but the US is a Christian nation, it always has been. There are many on the Left who hate the idea that the US is a Christian nation and are appalled at the idea that it is named as such (they are not however horrified when people call Middle East nations “Muslim nations”…Why is that?).
The White House does not host festivities for every subsection of America as a matter of course. In fact, the White House is not even obliged to celebrate American holidays on site! What makes groups like CAIR think they have rights that others do not?
This is an incitement to hatred from special interest groups like CAIR who only “care” about themselves and the power they can accrue and wield.
This week United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just did what all us red-blooded patriotic Americans have been dreaming about since 1999.
While President Donald Trump is on his first overseas trip since becoming president Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did to Muslims what they have been asking for centuries now. He decided not to hold the annual Ramadan festivities at the White House which have become a tradition since the Sexual Predator President Bill Clinton’s administration.
This comes on the heels of Muslim activists actually having the audacity of accusing President Donald Trump’s administration of having an unfriendly attitude toward Islam.
