Oh, have the tables turned, and I can’t wait to see how the left will deal with this one.
They have put themselves between a rock and a hard place, and it will be fun to watch.
In Hamtramck, Michigan, a city with an all-Muslim city council, voted to ban the LGBTQ+ flag from public areas.
Debate during the meeting was intense.
“Sure, many Hamtramck residents have fled countries where being gay is a death sentence, but nothing says we have to make it ‘comforting’ and ‘welcoming’ here,” an LGBTQ+ woman testified before kissing her partner.
Folks, if a Christian said that before they got home, they would have had their home foreclosed on, fired from their job, all social media accounts would have been shut down, Amazon would refuse them services, and the IRS would have audited them.
The rule appears to only cover city-owned property and allows residents and businesses to fly the flag on their own property.
“You guys are welcome,” council member Nayeem Choudhury said. “(But) why do you have to have the flag shown on government property to be represented? You´re already represented. We already know who you are.”
The council unanimously voted to allow five flags to be displayed on city property. The American flag, the Michigan flag, and the flags that represent the native countries of the immigrant residents of the community.
What really has the left seething is that the current measure is a campaign promise made by the current mayor.
Mayor Amer Ghalib made the flag an issue with then-Mayor Karen Majewski display it on city property in 2021.
Ghalib stated that he would not fly a flag that was not related to America or veteran causes.
“We serve everybody equally with no discrimination but without favoritism,” he said.
Ghalib told Dailymail.com he was upset by what he felt was residents and the media believing they’re targeting the LGBTQ+ community.
“It’s not targeting any specific group, but it doesn’t allow any preferential treatment for any group either. It confirms the neutrality of the city government, and it doesn’t allow any religious, racial, ethnic, political or sexual orientation group flags on public or city properties,” Ghalib explained. “It’s disappointing that some media tries to make it sound as it’s an attack against LGBTQ group. I have many members of this group in my boards and commissions that I appointed and we get along well. I will continue to serve and treat everyone equally, but in this resolution we block the doors in front of any other radical or racist group that would come and ask for their flag to be flown in city properties.”
The former Mayor of the town, Karen Majewski is demanding that Governor Whitmer’s new LGBTQ Task Force go after minority Muslims.
Get your popcorn folks, and this is going to be a good one.
i kept telling these libs that importing religious conservatives would result in conservative public rulings
