The California State Assembly has passed a bill making August “Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month”. The bill was proposed by Assemblyman Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) and was supported by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It passed unanimously on Monday.
Not only do you now have to appreciate Muslims you have to be aware of them. And not being aware of Muslims is like living in Compton and not being aware of the gunshots. This feels like what happened when Kublai Kahn took over China, “appreciate” the mongols or die.
While America hasn't quite gotten that barbaric yet, this definitely feels like a step in the wrong direction. And the thought of it is racist in itself. Imagine what would happen if somebody were to propose a Christian or Catholic appreciation month? It would be called an exercise in intolerance.
