In Case You Missed It: August was “Muslim Appreciation & Awareness Month”

The California State Assembly passed HR 59, a resolution declaring that August, 2016 was: “Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month.”

This is the first time any state has designated a calendar month to recognize Islamic ideology. Californians can thank state assemblyman Bill Quirk, D–Hayward, and everyone else who voted to pass the resolution.

But they aren’t thanking him. Quirk’s resolution (and tweet) was not well received:

The Daily Californian cites language from the resolution suggesting that:

“while most American Muslims ‘strive to promote peace and understanding’ and seek to uphold American values, they are nevertheless subjected to incidents of violence and vandalism.”

Of course the terrorist organization CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) weighed in, even having a press conference to push their Twitter campaign: #CanYouHearUsNow.

(Yes, the San Bernardino murders were loud and clear.)

Speaking of which, these two were nowhere to be seen at CAIR’s press conference:

This ludicrous resolution is exactly what is wrong with America. Its legislators don’t represent the people. Quirk is ignoring his constituency, as is every member who voted for this nonsense.

One month after the San Bernardino terrorist attack, 71 percent of California voters polled believe another Islamic terrorist attack is likely. Yet, their concerns were met by their elected officials designating one month to appreciate an ideology that has publicly stated its intent on destroying western civilization.
