‘Battle of Sacred Cow Groups’ Begins in MI After All-Muslim City Council Bans Pride Flag on City Property

‘Battle of Sacred Cow Groups’ Begins in MI After All-Muslim City Council Bans Pride Flag on City Property

“We welcomed you. We created nonprofits to help feed, clothe, find housing. We did everything we could to make your transition here easier, and this is how you repay us, by stabbing us in the back?”

Though Democrats have blamed conservative Republicans for the growing outcry from the Muslim community over the radical LGBTQ agenda being forced on children in public schools, the belief still exists among woke leftists that if they continue to play nice they can coexist with—and win over—devoutly religious, socially conservative Muslims who have become disaffected with Democratic Party.

It’s almost an understatement to say that theory has been put to the test in one city in Michigan, which saw an all-Muslim city council and mayor unanimously vote to ban the Pride flag and some other flags from being displayed on city property, a vote they held during ‘Pride Month’:

From the Washington Post‘s report:

And last year, a Muslim who emigrated from Yemen as a teenager became mayor — the city’s first leader in nearly a century with no Polish roots — alongside what is believed to be the nation’s only all-Muslim city council.

Many residents in this tiny enclave just north of downtown Detroit saw these changes as a sign of the Hamtramck’s progressiveness. The Muslim community that had previously experienced discrimination, including voter intimidation and resistance to mosques’ public call to prayer, had finally taken its seats at the table.

Yet the ethnic, cultural and religious diversity that made Hamtramck something of a model is being put severely to the test. In June, after divisive debate, the six-member council blocked the display of Pride flags on city property — action that has angered allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community, who feel that the support they provided the immigrant groups has been reciprocated with betrayal.

“We welcomed you,” former council member Catrina Stackpoole, a retired social worker who identifies as gay, recalls telling the council this summer. “We created nonprofits to help feed, clothe, find housing. We did everything we could to make your transition here easier, and this is how you repay us, by stabbing us in the back?”

The only flags that can be displayed on city property, per the WaPo‘s report, are “U.S., state, city and POW/MIA banners.”

My first thought when I read this was “What the heck did they expect?” My second was to remind myself that the far left always expects mindless subservience from their core voting blocs.

Though there seemed to be general agreement from Twitter conservatives with the vote to only allow the American flag and related flags on city property, some other observations were made about the widening political rift in Hamtramck which ranged from serious to downright hilarious:

Some pointed to the “intersectionality” aspect of all of this:

Then there was the “let them fight” contingent:

This Twitter user summed up things nicely:

“If the money runs out it will collapse fast.” Couldn’t happen soon enough in my humble opinion.

HA said ‘sacred cow’…now the Hindus will be offended.

AF_Chief_Master_Sgt | September 17, 2023 at 12:20 pm

It has been proven time and time again. Muslims will blend into a community until such time that they have a majority.

Once that majority has been achieved, it becomes all Muslim, all the time.

And yes, Muslims are to the FAAAARRR right of Christians.

The “Community of Alphabet Sexuality” is now learning that lesson.

Truman’s first airplane was named Sacred Cow. A DC-4 variant.

I’m uncertain what’s more disturbing: the rainbow degenerates wield an inordinate amount of power in America, or there’s an all muslim city council led by a muslim mayor in America.

That said, I will conclude that the enemy of my enemy is my friend – for now.

There is only one flag, the Flag of the United States of America

Enough of this crap

I’ll go make some more popcorn.

Thad Jarvis | September 17, 2023 at 1:37 pm

This has to be a tough one for our resident “all Muslims are terrorists, prepare for the final battle” armchair warriors here.

    Why? From a strategic perspective it’s a Good Thing. Let the enemy exhaust themselves fighting each other, then it’s a cakewalk to finish off the survivors – if any.

    JR in reply to Thad Jarvis. | September 17, 2023 at 4:43 pm

    I totally agree. The “all Muslims are terrorists” group is alive and well at LI. Absolutely disgusting. So even when the Muslims are on our side in opposing all of this gay/lesbian/transgender/grooming crap, the usual suspects here on LI show their true racist views. Just like they often do to Hispanics, who are more often than not on our side culturally and politically.

      Explain to me where you get the idea muslims are a race. Be interesting to hear.

      More like a political front masquerading as a religion. Wait- some scholars have written books describing them just like that.

      Thad Jarvis in reply to JR. | September 18, 2023 at 12:35 pm

      It gives them something to feel heroic about. I can’t imagine going through life worrying that every Muslim in America is a pre-jihadist, ticking time bomb. Seems like a rather neurotic way to go through life but it makes for a good d-measuring contest in the comments for ex-military has-beens.

    randian in reply to Thad Jarvis. | September 17, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    “All Muslims are terrorists” is manifestly false. “All devout Muslims support (Muslim) terrorists” is manifestly true, whether they will publicly say so or not, as all Muslims have a duty to oust the infidel from power wherever he has it.

    Sometimes they will say they support terrorism publicly, when they say things like “it is forbidden to kill to innocent”. Ignorant fools take this to have the infidel meaning. Infidels are by definition not innocent, as it is a grave crime, punishable by death, in Islam to deny the divinity of Allah or the authority of Muhammad. This kind of doublespeak is commonly heard from Muslim spokesmen.

      gospace in reply to randian. | September 18, 2023 at 9:45 pm

      The saying goes- an extremist muslim want to kill you. A moderate muslim wants and extremist muslim to kill you.

      If you substitute “mainstream” for “extremist” it would be a correct substitution. Islam isn’t a defined hierarchy like most Christian denominations. (Come to think of it- most religions aren’t a defined hierarchy like most Christian denominations and Mormons) The Roman Catholic Pope, the various Orthodox Popes, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the heads of the various state churches that still exist in Europe, none of them call for hatred and warfare against other religions or non-believers. And any of their underlings who do will find themselves ex-communicated.

      Not let’s compare that to the mad mullahs of Iran. I’d look up some quotes from them- but I can’t. If toy search “quotes from Iranian mullahs” you get quotes about them, on both google and duckduckgo, almost as if they’re afraid you might see what they actually have to say… like the USA is the Great Satan and must be destroyed. A fairly well known one. Find one single muslim cleric in the USA who has condemned that remark unequivicolly.

        gospace in reply to gospace. | September 18, 2023 at 9:50 pm

        Clicked the wrong thing trying to spell check… The taliban speaks for muslims, the Iraqi imams and ayatollahs and mullahs, whatever, speak for islam. Find one who speaks for peaceful coexistence with other beliefs and religions rather then the peace of submission to their will. I won’t hold my breath waiting for an example.

        And, BTW, there are numerous cases right here in the USA where muslim clerics have been recorded saying one thing to their believers, and another thing to the rest of us.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Thad Jarvis. | September 18, 2023 at 12:05 am

    Look at what is happening in Europe, how about Africa. There is a clear pattern, Islam is exactly what one would expect from a barbarian cementing his power.

    It isn’t unfortunately, I wish it was but you could see the bigoted comments here.

    The keyboard crusaders will be very difficult for a Republican trying to get Muslim voters back (they voted 90%+ for Republican every election due to social issues prior to Bush) to overcome.

not_a_lawyer | September 17, 2023 at 1:46 pm

Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

If you find yourself living in an area in which you can hear the Muezzin, you live in the Ummah and must do whatever you can to escape before they institute Sharia start applying the Jizya.

    CommoChief in reply to not_a_lawyer. | September 17, 2023 at 2:07 pm

    I actually.came to like the call to prayer, it was a very peaceful time of day every one of my 46 months in the sandbox. You can keep the Sharia law being implemented though, hard pass.

      True that. I wasn’t there as long as you, but I did a tour at Elf One.

      gonzotx in reply to CommoChief. | September 17, 2023 at 5:51 pm



      Jesus, mother Mary…

      They stop whatever they are doing , could care less who’s face they put their butt up into and how inconvenient it is to the population to stop traffic in cities , all in non Muslim majority cities
      Then there is the blast at MN and dawn

      Hope you don’t work nights or have kids

      I love rock and roll, but I can’t, and dont ,want to blast it 6 times a day

      Neighbors, it’s a kind, cultural thing

      Now before you call me
      Racist, I let the staff, who are Muslim do their prayer thing in private as long as we weren’t having medical

      I helped one get her medical school transcripts but the med school didn’t think the country she was from was up to par, now she’s a NP and thanks me for Helping her

      Do I think if the shit hit the fan she wouldn’t come for my head

      Unfortunately, pretty sure she would, but she might shed a tear…

        CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | September 18, 2023 at 8:06 am

        Yes really. When they were at prayer they weren’t launching rockets/mortars, ramming VBIED at us, taking pot shots at us and so on. The call itself is relaxing as well IMO.

        As I stated y’all can keep the Sharia law, I don’t want to live under it or any theocratic govt. Though Sharia would drastically cut down on the population of Karens and end trans ideology.

    How about standing your ground? Whites so seldom do.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to not_a_lawyer. | September 18, 2023 at 12:07 am

    The call to prayer sounds like someone suffering from terminal dysentery.

    Greeks routinely listen to music that is interchangeable with what is available in Syria, Egypt, Turkey, and Jordan.

    Bulgarian music sounds like it could have come straight from Iraq.

    Could you at least keep the Muslim hatred out of Music theory?

The Somali’s in Minnesota haven’t broken from the dem party yet and I doubt they will.

The Dumb-o-crats were stupid to believe that they could make bedfellows of Muslims and LGBT folks, in common cause to the Dumb-o-crat banner. It was only a matter of time before their diametrically opposed ideologies came into open conflict.

    “But we’re on your side!”

    Danny in reply to guyjones. | September 18, 2023 at 1:49 pm

    That depends on if we alienate Muslims by continuing to hate them.

    No matter what if they keep hearing routine comments from Republicans that could be straight out of Anton Denikin’s army with the word Jew replaced with Muslim they will not change sides.

      guyjones in reply to Danny. | September 18, 2023 at 5:44 pm

      What is this “hate” that you refer to? It’s not backed up by facts. Israeli Jews and American Jewish supporters of Israel are bigger targets of Democrat hate than any alleged “hate” for Muslims that you ascribe in presumptuous and sweeping terms, to conservatives.

        Danny in reply to guyjones. | September 18, 2023 at 8:51 pm

        “It has been proven time and time again. Muslims will blend into a community until such time that they have a majority.

        Once that majority has been achieved, it becomes all Muslim, all the time.

        And yes, Muslims are to the FAAAARRR right of Christians.

        The “Community of Alphabet Sexuality” is now learning that lesson.”

        Now lets change one word

        “It has been proven time and time again. Jews will blend into a community until such time that they have a majority.

        Once that majority has been achieved, it becomes all Jews, all the time.

        And yes, Jews are to the FAAAARRR right of Christians.

        The “Community of Alphabet Sexuality” is now learning that lesson.”

        I think that should easily be enough to demonstrate exactly what Muslims who look at conservative things have to go through.

        That is the window dressing at Legal Insurrection a reliable source of news and commentary run by one of the nations greatest conservative thinkers a professor who is standing firm against the scourge of wokism at the heart and center of woke theology.

        LI should be a place Muslims feel welcomed.

        Instead an article that should make them feel we are allies standing shoulder to shoulder will if a Muslim reads it make them feel like they are under attack and that they need Democrats to defend and save them.

        They banned a hate filled partisan flag in favor of the American flag you should be applauding them for it like I am.

        Instead the comment section has very much promised that any Muslim who reads this will feel more than ever our side is hate filled and evil and whatever the flaws and horrendous social values they need Democrats.

        Great job.

We did everything we could to make your transition here easier, and this is how you repay us, by stabbing us in the back?”

Catrina, like many Dumb-o-crats, seems appallingly ignorant of basic Islamic tenets regarding homosexuality. Was she truly so stupid and naive to believe that devout Muslims were going to reject centuries of Islamic teaching and texts, to suddenly give their approval to their supposed homosexual allies?

In many ways, the ignorant and stupid dhimmitude on display, here, is similar to the same dhimmitude that allows Dumb-o-crats to rationalize and whitewash Arab Muslim Jew-hate, slanders and genocidal belligerence against Israeli Jews and Israel.

    nordic prince in reply to guyjones. | September 17, 2023 at 4:03 pm

    Well, she no doubt has experience with plenty of “Christians” rejecting centuries of doctrine teaching that homosexuality is sinful and contrary to Christian belief, so she probably figured that the Muslims were just as much pushovers as the so-called Christians.

    She’s wrong, of course, but it’s easy to see why liberals would draw that conclusion.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to guyjones. | September 17, 2023 at 7:31 pm

    Danny in reply to guyjones. | September 18, 2023 at 8:53 pm

    You missed the part about her being an ignorant jerk pulling things out of her ass.

    Muslims have extremely high rates of achievements in this country and always have and are extremely overrepresented in opening businesses in this country.

    They did not receive any help in getting to the middle class, they actually had the classification of white while it happened.

    Muslim anti-Semitism is an issue, it is not going to be dealt with by adopting anti-Muslim bigotry (actually I can’t think of anything more likely to make a Muslim refuse to listen).

Subotai Bahadur | September 17, 2023 at 6:00 pm

1) Both devout Muslims and Militant LGBTQRST’s are NOT part of our Social Contract nor do they consider themselves subject to our laws and Constitution when it gives them advantage not to be.

2) From Muhammed on, Islam has not tolerated other religions or violations of their Jizya at any time when they have power. You cannot find any historical examples of such, nor seriously claim a Reform Islam that does so;

3) Militant LGBTQRST’s have the same inclination when they are the majority, but have not had the same practice. When in the majority or in the plurality they attack “straights” as best they can.

4) Incidentally, when I refer to the Social Contract as I have been forced to do by events more and more lately; I find it’s principles are best stated in the Declaration of Independence. Which Contract is followed by fewer and fewer.

5) While there are secular particulars that also make up what a nation is, the people of a nation can be largely defined by a common culture and Social Contract. There are several mutually hostile nations within our borders who share neither. Neither of the two antagonists in Hamtramck can be said to share our culture or Social Contract.

6) When two foreign nations fight, we are not required to intervene unless it is to our benefit. I see little to no benefit to intervention now and a great risk of encouraging both to ally against us. Let them have at each other.

Subotai Bahadur

this is how you repay us, by stabbing us in the back?

These fools never get it. Islam isn’t here to join the club, it’s here to take over the club.

    Danny in reply to randian. | September 18, 2023 at 8:56 pm

    No you don’t get it stop dehumanizing people who share your values.

    That screed by that woman claiming how the Muslims were helped, like hell they were. They raised themselves into the middle class by hard work, and opening risky businesses and high academic achievement.

    Small business ownership is extremely high among Muslims in this country.

    Perhaps you should stop sharing that woman’s guesswork and stereotypes in just guessing what the situation of Muslims are.

Sounds like the MI Muslim community has a different meaning for the “Pure Michigan” motto.

Anyone still stupid enough to cling to the George W Bush era war on terror/hating Muslims/not trying to mend the bridges we burned with that group……I frankly have no words words fail me.

They are with us on social issues, they are against us on dehumanizing Muslims.

Pick what means more to you, your flag being replaced by the pride flag or hating Muslims who frankly in Dearborn have established a vastly superior burgh to so many American cities (you really are going to tell me you would rather live in a violent Ghetto than Dearborn?).

        You are fighting Muslims because you are bigoted not because of history.

        They could be on our side or we could be a bunch of evil, weak bigots.

        Frankly if your hatred and your investment in George W Bush is so great you want to lose on REAL issues your an asshole.

pdulchinos | September 18, 2023 at 12:41 pm

Actually, the Town Council has taken a more inclusive position by eliminating the display of partisan political banners from public property. Had they wanted to adopt an authoritarian religious position, they would have approved the display of an Islamic banner for all Muslim Holidays.
Which they could have easily done given the precedence set by previous progressive councils. It is sad that it took an immigrant all Muslim Council to take an all-American position.

    CommoChief in reply to pdulchinos. | September 18, 2023 at 2:30 pm

    Yep. A town council insisting upon the removal of partisan/propaganda flags in favor of only displaying the US Flag. Some seem upset b/c it was a council comprised of people of faith and others b/c that faith is Islam. Last time I checked we have freedom of religion in the USA as one of the cornerstones of our Republic. It was enshrined in our Constitution due to the very clear historical problems of placing one particular religion or sect in a dominant position.

    Danny in reply to pdulchinos. | September 18, 2023 at 8:39 pm

    Thank you. I am appalled and shocked to see people here are attacking that town council for being Muslim.

      They are really just missing the point of the OP, and that seems to be a more significant problem. The fact that the Democrats are losing one of their “intersectional” “allies” is the point here, not that a town elected the exact people it wants to represent them, which is their right in these United States. Don’t lose sight of the forest for the trees.

        Danny in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 19, 2023 at 8:05 pm

        In this case I am afraid we have a fork in the road leading to many forests.

        One is the Democrats making it clear to every religious Muslim how they feel about everything they cherish and value from the constitution, equality under law, religion, god and their socially conservative values.

        The other tragically is the sentiments expressed in the frankly hate filled comments under it attacking the people who stood up for the American flag for being Muslims,

        We are an internet culture (except very elderly first generation immigrants in retirement homes that includes Muslims) so a couple of fringe morons (which is what I am hoping these comments are) have the ability to alienate a lot of people (because frankly I have seen similar comments on Facebook and Youtube where the public actually is).

        If it isn’t just a couple of fringe morons we have a much bigger issue.

        I think it is wonderful to see my values, including patriotism from American Muslims, the only consolation to the possibility a couple of bigoted morons make sure they don’t come home back to our party is that Michigan is likely irrelevant for now anyway.

          I hear you. And I hear the others, too. I think that both are right to a degree; Islam is not just a religion, it’s an entire legal and socio-cultural system that most adamantly does not fit in with our country’s founding values.

          There’s a reason there was an uproar when Keith Ellison chose the Thomas Jefferson Koran for his swearing in: the English version of the Koran was widely circulated back in the day pretty much on the same basis American conservatives started reading Alinsky: to know thy enemy. It was not approval, it was not embrace; it was basic self-preservation.

          Islam and America’s founding principles are fundamentally and forever ill-aligned. We can live alongside Muslims just fine as long as our Constitution holds, our American values prevail. But Islam is not compatible with anything our Founding Fathers believed, thought, or wished for our great nation.

          When people are wary of Muslims in America, they are correct because Islam specifically teaches that there is no law, no religion, no god, no socio-cultural principle that is not guided by their prophet and their goal (as stated in the Koran) of global dominance over all peoples of all religions. Is your Muslim neighbor family of four likely to run around killing non-Muslims in pursuit of this goal? Well, obviously, no. But there is something to this concern among Americans (one shared by Thomas Jefferson) about Islam and its adherents. To pretend otherwise (or worse to believe otherwise) is not helpful.

I talked to a woman (retired school teacher) recently who openly said she was offended by the homosexual flag.

She explained it annoys her that homosexual activists appropriated rainbow colors for their flag and now when she sees rainbows she associates it with homosexuality.

But she has liked rainbows her whole life. But now she can not appreciate the natural beauty of a rainbow because when she sees one her mind tricks her into associating it with homosexuality.

And that offends her.
