Does California Go Out of its Way to Kowtow to Muslims?

California is currently celebrating Muslim Appreciation Month, thanks to some very Islam-friendly lawmakers.

"My friends and neighbors continue to experience harassment on a daily basis for no other reason than being Muslim. This resolution is an opportunity to look beyond the hate, the negative headlines and the hurtful rhetoric," said California Assembly member Dr. Bill Quirk.

He is one of three sponsors of the measure that recognized Aug. 2018 as Muslim American Appreciation and Awareness Month. Assembly members Kansen Chu and Ash Kalra joined him in promoting the bill.

Muslim-American Aziz Akbari joined them on the Assembly floor to celebrate the passage of the bill. He is the youngest Muslim American to be elected into public office in the country.

But Carol Brown with American Thinker says Californians are going out of their way "even more than normal—to kowtow to Islam as they celebrate a contrived notion about Muslim contributions to our society."

This is the third year California has decided Muslims are deserving of special honor by the government. Brown writes it's a perfect example of political correctness as "madness rules the day" in California.

She points out there aren't other months reserved for honoring other religions like "Hindu Appreciation Month" or "Jewish Appreciation Month." She wrote that she doesn't want to "start with this nonsense, but I'm just making the point that this is Dhimmitude, pure and simple."
