Of course they would celebrate Nowruz, as the White House now adores all things Iran and Islamic. You don’t see them going out of their way to mention Christian or Jewish holidays, unless of course it is to hang a Mao ornament on the tree. But the Persian New Year? Why, that’s tradition, I tell ya! Never mind that the US was founded on Judeo/Christian principles. That’s soooo yesteryear. Never mind that until the ’90s, Islam didn’t really register on the radar in America at all – the Obama’s just keep pushing that Islam has always been an American tradition – just like Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July. Rubbish. It’s historical revisionism and it’s offensive to Americans.
From Western Journalism:
On more than one occasion, President Obama has praised Muslim immigrants for their contributions to American history, though the extent and significance of those contributions have been questioned by many.
The Washington Examiner reminds us of Obama’s effusive shout-out to Muslim Americans: “Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country, and Muslim Americans, and their good works, have helped to build our nation.”
Now, as the president reaches out to the mullahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, intent on making a controversial deal on their nuclear weapons development — a deal that would admittedly not be legally binding — his wife is also doing her part to make nice with the dictatorial regime.
First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a “Nowruz” celebration of the Iranian New Year, throwing open the doors of the White House earlier this week to mark the official start of the Persian holiday that’s been celebrated for thousands of years.×

Nowruz means “The New Day” and is the name of the Iranian New Year, marking the beginning of the year in the Persian calendar.
As a post on Downtrend notes of the White House event: “For the optics-conscious Obamas, the timing couldn’t be more perfect with the Republicans’ letter to Iran and Netanyahu’s speech still ruffling administration feathers.”
In keeping with President Obama’s public praise for Islam and the supposedly noteworthy threads of Muslim Americans woven through the fabric of the nation’s history, the first lady suggested to the Nowruz gathering something that could be considered rather curious…if not absolutely stunning.
Mrs. Obama said that a celebration like the one marking the Iranian New Year is part of the “traditions that make us who we are as a country.”
In other words, it certainly sounds as though Michelle Obama wants us to believe that Nowruz is much like Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July or Presidents’ Day.
By clicking on the video above, you can watch Mrs. Obama’s address to the Nowruz gathering at the White House — a short speech that some might consider history-warping.
And according to commenters, since I object to this latest push to ‘Islamicize’ America, I’m a redneck and a racist. Stuff it. Norwuz is not one of our traditions. It’s something being forced on us by the Obamas, who are desperately seeking to rewrite American history. We don’t want their New Year, we have our own, thank you very much. All of this is to shove the nuclear deal with Iran in our face. A deal that Obama says he will explain to the American people after he makes it, sans the Senate, which is blatantly unconstitutional. In fact, he’s going to have the UN in on the deal. How’s that New World Government progressing for ya? The nuclear clock is at straight up midnight, while Mooch is pandering to genocidal Islamists. It’s a new day in America.
