US Muslims Finding Common Values With Republican Party

As Democrats slide further and further into woke ideology, conservative American Muslims increasingly find common ground with the values of the Republican Party.

Quanta Ahmed of the Independent Women’s Forum observed that there is “much coherence” between basic GOP values and those of the American Islamic community. She added that much of what Republicans value centers on God and country.

Nowhere is this more evident than in Dearborn, Michigan, where parents rose up against local school officials over sexually explicit materials in their children’s libraries.

When the Dearborn school board held a meeting last month, Muslim parents crammed the seats to protest books their children find in the district’s libraries. One title, “This Book Is Gay,” gives explicit details about “the ins and outs” of homosexual relations.”

Hundreds of demonstrators chanted “vote them out” and carried signs with slogans such as “Keep Your Dirty Books In The Closet.” They ultimately shut the meeting down with their vigorous protest.

It was rescheduled for a larger facility, and posters and signs were banned.

The state chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is actively informing parents of their rights over their children’s education as well as religious liberties.

GOP gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon called out her opponent, incumbent Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, for her silence on the issue. Dixon also openly courts disenchanted Muslim voters and has gathered support from the community.

Dixon rightly declared that “parents are fed up” and, at least in Dearborn, “aren’t allowing this nonsense to go on any longer.” Much like the area’s Muslim families, the Republican said that schools need to stop pushing radical gender theories and return to reading, writing, and math.

As recently as 2011, a Pew Research study showed that 46% of Muslims align with Democrats and only 11% declared themselves to be Republican.

But a 2020 poll by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding found that former President Donald Trump enjoyed the support of 30% of Muslim voters.

American Muslims desire to protect their children and families from radical social ideology in much the same way as most families do. As they find the Democratic Party more aligned with ideas vastly out of line with their faith, it is only natural that common ground is found with Republicans.
