The Leftist-Islamic alliance, which has been rolling along without a hitch for many years now, hit a pothole in Dearborn, Michigan last Monday. The disagreement between the two camps was so sharp and irreconcilable that it may herald a definitive end to this alliance. A parody story spoofing The Atlantic called the Muslims in Dearborn “the new face of the far-right,” and by the time this is all over, that might not be too far off the mark.
The Detroit Free Press reported Tuesday that “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.” There were much more than cries of anger: “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.”
The whole thing became so chaotic that “it was unclear who was in control of the meeting at times. Most of the crowd appeared to be in opposition to the books, but there were also a number of people with the American Federation of Teachers union who showed up to support inclusion of LGBTQ people and others.” Finally, the local police chief had to restore order: “Not until Dearborn Police Chief Issa Shahin arrived later did the protesters stop their agitation. Shahin pleaded with the crowd to relax and not embarrass Dearborn. There was concern expressed by some community leaders that the protesters are making the city and its Arab American Muslim population look bad. But others said that as Muslims, they have to stand up for their faith.”
The crowd was enraged over LGTBQ propaganda in public schools: “Several held up signs with anti-gay rhetoric in English and Arabic, making religious references to assert that LGBTQ educational materials and books should not be available in Dearborn Public Schools, the third largest school district in Michigan. Some of the placards held up read: ‘Keep your porno books to yourself,’ ‘Homosexuality Big Sin,’ and ‘If democracy matters, we’re the majority.’” The Free Press added: “Most of the protesters appeared to be Arab American and Muslim. But others in the Arab American community strongly objected to the actions of the protesters Monday night.”
Osama Siblani, publisher of the Dearborn-based Arab American News, was appalled at this fracture in the Leftist-Islamic alliance: “What happened tonight at the school board meeting in Dearborn is very embarrassing and is totally rejected,” he wrote on Facebook. “Remember that the loss of any individual’s right to express himself/herself is the beginning of the end of all people’s rights … Remember that Islam is a religion of love, peace and tolerance, not a religion of insults, violence and threats.”
Sure. And Siblani’s reaction was understandable. This protest was “very embarrassing” for everyone concerned. It was especially “embarrassing” for local Muslim leaders such as Siblani, as they know that Leftists are their staunchest and most dependable allies. If the Leftist-Islamic alliance splits, events could take an ugly turn, especially given the Left’s increased penchant for authoritarianism.
But this is also embarrassing for the Leftist school board members, for they would rather have their teeth pulled out one by one with rusty pliers than appear to be “Islamophobic,” and yet they can’t appease the Muslims in Dearborn in this instance without giving up their cherished gender fantasies and relentless agenda of sexualizing children.
So who will give? The appalling Niraj Warikoo, the far-Left pseudo-journalist from the Detroit Free Press who reported on this chaotic meeting, is staunchly on the LGBTQ side, as one can tell from his editorializing at the end of his article, where he says “As Stone,” an LGBTQ activist, “walked away, a protester yelled at him a phrase advocates note is often used to make bigoted attacks against gay people based on inaccurate stereotypes: ‘Leave our kids alone.’” What will Warikoo do when all the friends he has made in the Muslim community over the years with his relentlessly biased coverage turn on him because of nasty little digs like that one?
And what will both sides do if this alliance breaks down altogether over the Left’s insistence on corrupting and sexualizing children?

Oh joy Islamic nutcases finally incensed by the delinquent licentiousness of Western culture. Look to the UK to see how this plays out. Not well.
Kids are pawns in contemporary Western culture just like their Eastern counterparts. Good for outrage and suicide bombings, little else.
Who will give? We already know who is more giving. The West already gave up its kids for Covid at the gates. They tell themselves otherwise but it isn’t so.
This dilemma is simply resolved by the two tier system that already exists.
“And what will both sides do if this alliance breaks down altogether over the Left’s insistence on corrupting and sexualizing children?”
One thing they may consider doing is toning down any anti-Americanism, creating a hudna and joining the republican party. The far left can shit on Jews and Israel and control the Dems and the republicans can go back to their traditional lukewarm stance in exchange for Muslim votes. Don’t imagine that Evangelicals cant be persuaded to go along. There’s already a steadily growing movement with that community that wants to heave Israel overboard.
For once, Im with the Muslims

Are you sure?
They promote pedophilia and sex slavery. Is that better or worse than being gay/lesbian?
Don’t those 4 things sort of roll up into the same disgusting ball of yuk?
They make demands then threats followed by greater demands and greater threats. Ultimately, non-Muslims will cave, but even if they do, demands, threats will continue, until there is violence. Their goal is a Sharia stare. They WILL have it. Among other reasons, because B. Hussein Obama brought them here by the millions. Hijra ->Jihad->Sharia. The same for 1400 years.
Two rather dishonest conquest philosophies have a tiff.
Should this continue, Islam wins, hands down.
Just tell gay teachers union staff to avoid going up to any rooftops.
Or don’t tell them.

This was inevitable, the atheist leftist elites are being used by islamic extremists and one day they were going to cross the line of islamic doctrine there are too many contradictions.
Leftist elites thought the they could control them. They can’t. And now we will all pay for leftist naiveté and stupidity. Forever.
Who knew it would Islam that would come to the rescue of our children.
Wonder what their plans are for them?

Your kid is an infidel. They don’t give a crap about him/her.
Your children will bow to the east 5 times a day. Thanks, Soetoro.

Newsweek finally found some opponents of these explicit books that it can admire – the Dearborn Muslims. Even though the Muslim critique was basically the same as that previously made by Christians, Newsweek found a way to make a sharp distinction between the two. The Christian response was extreme and bigoted – an expression of “white Christian nationalism!” – whereas the Muslim response was nuanced and intelligent. Thus, once again, the MSM shows its anti-Christian bigotry.
With any luck, they will eradicate each other.
Carl Goldberg says
The Moslem community leaders know full well that the leftist-Moslem alliance must be kept intact because it promotes the cause of the eventual triumph of Islam. Therefore, they will suppress those short-sighted religious Moslems who threaten that alliance by openly standing up for Islamic principles such as suppression of homosexuals.

Many of the LGB are trying to separate themselves from the TQ. You have Gays Against Groomers who are being silenced on media because even THEY know that children don’t belong getting butchered for the big bucks doctors or being anywhere near a drag show.
As for the Muslims: The refugees biting the hands that feed them. Just put a fence around Dearborn and let them all have at it.
These Jihadist want you to think this violates Sharia.
When you have a Prophet that rewards his warriors both boys and girls in Paradise one would think by now western nations would be up to speed on Sharia.
In Sharia lying is obligatory for Muslims. ( Sharia )
This is simply another example of what this Islamic House of War entails in this war of surrendering to Mohamed.
This unknowing Americans non Muslim Citizens according to Allah are Kaffirs.
Infidel is a word used to water down what Kaffir means to Allah.
Kaffir’s are subject to humiliation/ persecution/ murder/ rape/ as per Islamic text.

We don’t t was hard sex taught to our kids but at the same time we don’t want Sharia Laws forced upon us by these types
My feelings are that no matter what race you are, you don’t want your children to be corrupted by immorality, and sinful lifestyles… LGBTQ are created genders by man to cause divide, sin, and chaos on this earth, they are perversions of man’s gender dysfunction…. They are not real biologically. God created one man and one woman, Adam and Eve, to produce offspring and populate the earth in Genesis 1:: 2 Two women together or two men cannot produce offspring and populate the earth. God made two genders for that purpose which shows the falacy of all these genders. If that had been the case, none of us would be here today. Its nonsensical and what it does is defy that God is the Creator of all things that were ever made.
