Hawaii Goes Dhimmi, Creates Islam Day

This couldn’t have anything to do with the rumors that Barack Obama is a closet Muslim, could it?* Nah. It has more to do with those on the far left respecting the values and objectives of Islam then other established religions – Hawaii Lawmakers Pass Bill to Create ‘Islam Day’

Hawaii’s state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate “Islam Day” — over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn’t want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.

The Senate’s two Republicans argued that a minority of Islamic extremists have killed many innocents in terrorist attacks.

Can you imagine the uproar from the Left if a State legislature, heck, a small town board, creating a Christianity Day or Hebrew Day? Massive talking points about the wall of separation between church and state. We know that Democrats do like to erect walls.

“I recall radical Islamists around the world cheering the horrors of 9/11. That is the day all civilized people of all religions should remember,” said Republican Sen. Fred Hemmings to the applause of more than 100 people gathered in the Senate to oppose a separate issue — same-sex civil unions.

The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote. It had previously passed the House and now goes to Republican Gov. Linda Lingle.

Will Gov. Lingle have the fortitude to stand strong in the face of dhimmitude in the Hawaii legislative branch? And, of all the days, they pick one in September? Searching around, I cannot find any significance to the Muslim faith for that day. Anyone know?

“We are a state of tolerance. We understand that people have different beliefs,” said Sen. Will Espero, a Democrat. “We may not all agree on every single item and issue out there, but to say and highlight the negativity of the Islamic people is an insult to the majority” of believers “who are good law-abiding citizens of the world.”

Here’s today’s task, folks: everyone write or call Will Espero, and ask him to submit a bill proclaiming some day in the year Christian Day and another to be Hebrew Day. Let’s see how far his tolerance extends.

*That Obama is a Muslim crack is simply that: a wisecrack. I do not think he is a Muslim. I think he is a Godless Progressive who will used religion when it benefits his politics, but, otherwise couldn’t care less.
