Arab-Americans Form Unlikely Alliance in Bid to Ban Explicit LGBTQ Books from School Libraries
I bet many of these people are Islamic. As I’ve noted in older blog posts, Muslims don’t give a rat about American progressive “intersectionality.”
This presents a problem for U.S. progressives, because they incorrectly view Muslims as an oppressed minority. 😂

An unexpected alliance has formed between conservative parents and Arab Americans in Dearborn, Michigan.
The groups have come together to stand up against the public school boards that are supplying their children with ‘explicit’ LGBTQ reading material.
Reports indicate a school board meeting in Dearborn, Michigan was disrupted last week when hundreds of protestors denouncing books with LGBTQ content poured into the Dearborn Public Schools administration building.
Some of the titles concerned parents are coming together to object to include Push, The Lovely Bones, This Book Is Gay and Flamer – all titles that confront rape, explicit sex and sexuality.
The Republican candidate for Michigan attorney general Matthew Deperno attended the meeting and commented on the surprising united front between conservatives and Arabs.
‘I think you’ll find these are people with deeply held religious beliefs. We have to stand up for the First Amendment and people’s religious beliefs and I think you’re probably seeing a shift in the Republican Party,’ he said.
Local affiliate Fox 2 said the presence of the two groups ‘was a nod to the unexpected alliance of sorts between conservatives and many in the Arab American community as their interests overlap on this issue.’
The majority, according to the outlet, of those who attended the Thursday night school board meeting were Arabic.
One individual in attendance at the meeting expressed his support for how the GOP has been handling the issue by bolstering the rights of parents.
‘What the Republican Party has done, is they stood on this issue firmly and they stood with parents firmly. We’re waiting for Democrats counterparts to also stand with us on this issue,’ he said.
Another attendee slammed progressive Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, calling her ‘the only person that’s behind this….Do not vote for Rashida Tlaib!’
The audience reportedly cheered the criticism.
…According to the Washington Post, local Muslim leaders had encouraged people to attend the meeting to oppose the presence of LGBTQ books in public schools.
‘Some of those books promote pornography. Some of them promote homosexuality. We don’t need this,’ prominent Muslim leader Iman Sayed Hassan Al-Qazwini told the Detroit Free Press.
