Officials in Minnesota imposed a curfew on Minneapolis as a result of the Black Lives Matter rioting this week but exempted all Muslims after U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar complained.

Black Lives Matter rioters erupted in Minneapolis after 20-year-old wanted criminal Daunte Wright died after being shot by a police officer ion Brooklyn Center, a northern suburb of Minneapolis. City Mayor Jacob Frey announced a state of emergency on Monday.

But Muslim-first Rep. Omar jumped into action to get officials to allow Muslims free movement, especially since Ramadan started last weekend.

“My office reached out to the Minneapolis Mayor and Governor’s offices to urge them to include an exemption to the curfew this evening for travel to and from Ramadan activities/prayer services” Omar Tweeted on Monday.

Not long after, Omar went back to Twitter to announce her victory, saying, “The Governor’s Executive Order was just announced with that exemption so that folks are able to observe the first night of Taraweeh this evening without fear of arrest.”

Meanwhile, as Minnesota has given Muslims the go ahead to enjoy free movement, Christians have been locked out of attending church until recently.

So, while American citizens are expected to be locked up in their homes over Black Lives Matter rioting, Minnesota is just fine with giving Muslims free movement.

VIDEO: Conservative Icon Tears Through 30 Pushups to Teach Reporter a Lesson

He’s still got it!

Published

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…

Twitter Account Suspended for Sharing Link to Trump’s New Website

This is unbelievable.

Published

on

Twitter has long had it out for Donald Trump, having already banned the former President from the platform for life following the attempted insurrection of January 6th.  This was followed shortly thereafter by a slightly less-permanent ban by Facebook that has yet to be rescinded. Now, however, Twitter is taking it a step further, and essentially erasing the 45th President of the United States from the platform entirely. A Twitter account sharing posts from former President Donald Trump’s new blog and other right-wing content was banned by the platform Wednesday. A spokesman for the social media site said Twitter would take enforcement action against accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account. The suspended account reposted blog entries that were originally published on the From the desk of Donald J. Trump blog, which launched Tuesday. The suspended account also shared tweets from other Republican politicians, including Caitlyn Jenner, who’s running for governor of California. Trump’s new blog is billed as “a place to speak freely and safely,” though readers don’t appear able to comment on his posts. Posts date back as far as March 24 and contain sentiments anyone familiar with Trump’s tweets would recognize. Buttons to the right of his posts allow readers to like or share a post in their own Twitter or Facebook feed. This censorship will likely be put to the test in the coming years, as Trump has made it abundantly clear that he intends to run for office again in 2024.
