Muslim Parents in Dearborn, MI Protest at School Board Meetings Over LGBTQ Content

Muslim Parents in Dearborn, MI Protest at School Board Meetings Over LGBTQ Content

Are progressives going to start calling these Muslims haters and domestic terrorists?

Dearborn, Michigan is home to a sizable Muslim community and parents there are not happy about the inclusion of explicit LGBT books and other content in their schools.

These parents are making their voices heard at school board meetings like other parents across the country, and this poses a big problem for progressives.

When mostly white parents from other areas were doing this, Democrats sought to portray them as terrorists. The National School Boards Association even enlisted Merrick Garland and the DOJ to intervene. How is the left going to do that here?

Ari Blaff reported at National Review:

Muslim Protesters Shut Down Michigan School-Board Meeting over LGBTQ Books

A school-board meeting in Dearborn, Mich. was shut down earlier this week by hundreds of protesters opposing the circulation of LGBTQ books across the city’s public-school system.

Viral videos recorded by a Detroit Free Press reporter circulated on Twitter showing pandemonium breaking out at the meeting Monday night. Many of the protesters carried signs in English and Arabic: “Keep Your Dirty Books in the Closet,” “Stop Grooming Our Kids,” and “Homosexuality Big Sin,” some read.

Tensions boiled over when Roxanne McDonald, chair of the school board, limited attendee speaking time to three minutes. The proceedings were then halted due to fears that the growing crowd violated the fire code. Shouts of “Vote them out!” broke out.

Here’s more from the Detroit Free Press:

Protesters shut down Dearborn school board meeting over LGBTQ books

Hundreds of protesters packed a Dearborn Public Schools board meeting this week and shut it down with cries of anger over certain LGBTQ books they said are too sexually explicit for children. And now, some community leaders anxiously await a rescheduled meeting set for Thursday night as others call for calm.

A heavy police presence failed to prevent the Monday night meeting from descending into chaos as demonstrators took it over and then various factions within them jostled for control, shouting at each other. Protesters often ignored the requests of police officers to stop interrupting board members.

Tempers are flaring.

This tweet perfectly illustrates the problem the left finds itself with in this situation.

A mention of Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib was met with boos.

Watch this video report and note how the protesters go out of their way to say that their objections are not an attack on gay people.

Are progressives going to start calling these Muslims haters and domestic terrorists?

That would be problematic.

The chickens are coming home to roost, and the “reverend” Wright used to say.

Parents should have the final say in their children’s education, not the latest fad “educational” gimmick. Even Bill Maher is noting how many kids are being encouraged to claim some sort of transgender status to get attention, favors or privileges in school.

The extreme actions of the far leftists, the socialist/communists, are alienating more and more citizens by their elitist, “we know better than you” attitude.

It doesn’t take a village to raise a child; it takes concerned and active parents.

Muslims are lower on the progressive victim pecking order, so yes, they’ll be called names as soon as the LGBT efforts to make alliances with them are rebuffed. It should be a hoot to watch.

    It seems to me that the LGBTQEIEIO crowd is starting to run out of allies in the Intersectional Olympics.

      Then they start fighting each other. We should encourage them to do so early and often.

      It’s only a matter of time before they are forced back in the closet.

      Someone should have told the LGBT crowd pride always comes before a fall.

        you give conservatism a bad name

          No, I think he has a valid point. The “aggrieved” are never satisfied with tolerance. They always eventually demand more and more extreme concessions, to the point where others devoutly begin to wish they would just go away. And if they won’t go away on their own, then they start thinking of ways to make that happen. It turns an “interest group” that you were perfectly happy to “leave and let live” into one you want to see explode in a puff of smoke.

          It’s really the same dynamic you see for any entitlement, from welfare to Medicare.

    Actually Muslims are higher than gays. They are considered “BIPOC” and they are not Christian so Leftists will be careful not to insult them.

Somebody should write a letter to Merrick Garland demanding he investigate these parents as domestic terrorists. There’s some embarrassing (to the left) shit that absolutely demands to be stirred here, and somebody important on our side needs to do it.

“A union rep called for unity and tolerance.”
Muhammed’s homies don’t play that. They know a call to dhimmitude when they hear it, and they have no desire to be the Democrats’ NPCs.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Michigan Muslims get a carve out just like certain organizations got an Obamacare carve out. Anything for political power.

Intersectionality is not the way of the world.

This is the part where the white liberal know-it-all nudges the Muslim and says, “Shhh…keep it quiet and we’ll get you Israel”

Making common cause with Muslims is a very, very dangerous enterprise.

    Cum ulla sella in pugno taberna.

    Oh shut up you bigot.

    Settle down. Allies of convenience can be dumped when they are no longer needed. Beyond that, many Muslims are about as devout as a Christmas Catholic. Those living in the West are as fallen from their faith traditions as many/most Christians and Jews.

    The average Muslim isn’t any more likely to become a radical than the average Christian is to become a crusader. There’s a reason these folks don’t live in Nations with a majority Muslim population and under a system dominated by Islamic laws. They came here because they didn’t want that crap.

    Making common cause with a Bush era war monger who still insists on hating Muslims due to racist reasons and will not accept them is a fools erand.

    We tried anti-Muslim racism, mass murder of Muslims all over the middle east with drones and stealth bombers, and your other tricks Mr. Bush and I hate it we defiled our flag doing it, and disgraced ourselves.

    I want to befriend Muslims already here, and help the American worked by restricting immigration. I have no need to demonize or dehumanize Muslim Americans neither do I think you should either. By the way if we make the immigration debate about “is x an inhuman beast” we lose by about 100-0 because the argument just isn’t true.

    Oh can it already with the anti-Muslim sanctimony.

Intersting. I had no idea LI shadowbanned comments, but I’ve just had incontrovertible evidence of it.

    What happened exactly

      henrybowman in reply to gonzotx. | October 16, 2022 at 6:22 am

      I submitted a post between f2000 and broomhandle. When I’m logged in as me, it appears. When I’m not logged in, it doesn’t show.

        Dathurtz in reply to henrybowman. | October 16, 2022 at 8:05 am

        I can see your reply to Dimsdale at 9:38, your post at 9:10, your reply to fscarn at 6:25, your post about shadowbanning at 12:18, and your reply to gonzotx at 6:22.

        healthguyfsu in reply to henrybowman. | October 16, 2022 at 1:37 pm

        I don’t think that’s shadowbanning….I think it’s some kind of browser cache issue.

          henrybowman in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 16, 2022 at 4:10 pm

          Before I complained about it, I tried two different browsers. Same results from both. But if somebody other than me can see the 9:10 post, then it isn’t shadowbanning. Maybe LI has the capability of marking posts invisible to nonmembers (people not logged in) so as to thwart feds and cancel-karens. Try logging out and then see if you can still see the 9:10.

          CommoChief in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 16, 2022 at 6:17 pm

          Henry,

          I can see your post both logged out and in. FWIW.

          henrybowman in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 16, 2022 at 9:51 pm

          Truly bizarre. It is the only post of mine that disappears upon logout, consistently, from two browsers. But thanks for doing the experiment for me.

        Dathurtz in reply to henrybowman. | October 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm

        I can see the 9:10 post both when logged in and not logged in.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to henrybowman. | October 17, 2022 at 7:04 am

    That’s the stealth moderation policy that has been established here at LI and the reason I will no longer post here. You cannot be assured, unless you log out and look, that your comment has actually been posted so that others can see it or whether it’s in stealth moderation and the PTB are simply presenting it to you as if it actually posted but it hasn’t really been. Worse, they give no indication that the moderation policy has been applied to the post. To their credit it seems as if most posts are approved and are allowed to be seen. But it’s a really poor system in my opinion.

It was most amazing seeing how fast Muslims became an approved minority victim group to the Left right after 9/11. Observers could see a train wreck off in the future somewhere when the conflicts in their respective value systems would scuttle the venture. ‘Islamophobia’ was their juvenile attack on the Right — useful idiots to Islam, as the Left found a new ‘ally’ in their quest to destroy America. Islam would be happy to take their help in getting Christians out of the way but it was obvious even back then that tranny drag queen shows were not going to win Islamic hearts and minds, quite the opposite in fact.

It is only a matter of time until sanity returns.
People are wiser than we think.

When do you think we’ll see our first LGBTQ+ beheading in MI?

Where exactly is the “far right”??

Asking for a friend.

And I never thought Muslims could be useful for more than worm food.

Okay all you lefty pundits on MSNBC; which one of you is going to tell these Muslim parents how bigoted and intolerant they are?
