Liberals have been trying in vain to get rid of the freely-elected President of the United States for a year and a half now, but those crafty bastards at the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) may have finally figured out a way to get rid of Trump for good. Muslims are planning an anti-Trump protest where, now get this, Muslims will eat food near the White House. I honestly don’t see how the Trump presidency can survive this brutal smack-down.
The “Iftar” dinner is an event hosted by the POTUS to mark the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. It started with Bill Clinton, which means it probably involved sexual assault, and has continued on to this day, presumably without the rape. Last year, Trump’s first in office, he decided not to hold the Iftar dinner, but will be hosting one this year. Big mistake.
Here’s a statement from CAIR:
On Wednesday, June 6, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in partnership with other civil rights organizations, will host a “NOT Trump’s Iftar” fast-breaking meal (iftar) outside the White House. People of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to take part in the iftar.
What are the chances that anyone besides Muslims show up to this thing? I’m putting it somewhere at zero.
You may be wondering, what purpose does this protest serve? Glad you asked:
Wednesday’s event is designed as a counterpoint to the iftar that will take place at that same time in the White House.
Yes, apparently the President hosting a Muslim dinner requires a counterpoint. I’m not sure Trump is actually trying to make a point by hosting this dinner, but whatever, here’s why CAIR is so pissed at him:
CAIR said it has witnessed an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president. The Washington-based civil rights organization has also repeatedly expressed concern about Islamophobic and racist Trump administration policies and appointments.
Maybe if CAIR stopped counting hate crime hoaxes as real hate crimes, they would no longer see a spike in them. Also, perhaps if they could stop confusing legitimate national security concerns with Islamophobia, they wouldn’t be as upset by President Trump’s policies. Naw, that wouldn’t be fun. Reality is such a downer for people who need to portray themselves as victims.
Just to be clear, this protest will be a bunch of Muslims sitting on the ground in Lafayette Square outside the White House, eating food. I’ve never really saw the point of protests, but this seems dumb even by lefty standards. Do they think Trump will be staring out the window at them and wishing he could have some their Muchentuchen?
If the Muslims are pissed that Trump is hosting an iftar, wouldn’t it make more sense for them to have their dinner as far away from the President as possible? The way they are doing it, it just sounds like they are upset that they didn’t get invited to the White House.
Yesterday democrat Adam Schiff indicated that something was going to happen on Thursday that would end Trump’s presidency. Considering this “NOT Trump’s Iftar” is taking place on Wednesday, could this be what Schiff was talking about? Don’t laugh, that wouldn’t even be the dumbest thing Schiff said this week.
