MICHIGAN: A Muslim & Vice-Chair of the State’s GOP Board Rola Makki speaks out against ‘inappropriate books’

A reader sent us the following comments and the below video. Rola Makki, who is featured in the video, is a resident of Dearborn, Michigan. H/T JW.

This brief video of Rola Makki the Michigan GOP (MIGOP) outreach vice-chair is a Muslim acclaimed to be a wonderful speaker and a gift to the state party to fire up the Muslim vote.

Sodomy/homosexuality is antithetical to Sharia (Islamic law) and must be killed.

She is one of three Muslims on the MIGOP committee.

Islam dictates Muslims cannot follow man’s law i.e. the U.S. constitution, only sharia. When questioned she did not have an answer.

She also was unable to answer the constitutional question and will defer to an Imam.

Take a look.

WATCH: Public Comment Against Inappropriate Books – Rola Makki – Dearborn School Board (10-13-2022)

We have reported on Muslim outrage against teaching children about sodomy and having pornographic books in public school libraries and media centers.

Tom Perkins from The Guardian on June 17, 2023 reported:

In 2015, many liberal residents in Hamtramck, Michigan, celebrated as their city attracted international attention for becoming the first in the United States to elect a Muslim-majority city council.

They viewed the power shift and diversity as a symbolic but meaningful rebuke of the Islamophobic rhetoric that was a central theme of then Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign.

This week many of those same residents watched in dismay as a now fully Muslim and socially conservative city council passed legislation banning Pride flags from being flown on city property that had – like many others being flown around the country – been intended to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

Muslim residents packing city hall erupted in cheers after the council’s unanimous vote, and on Hamtramck’s social media pages, the taunting has been relentless: “Fagless City”, read one post, emphasized with emojis of a bicep flexing.

In a tense monologue before the vote, Councilmember Mohammed Hassan shouted his justification at LGBTQ+ supporters: “I’m working for the people, what the majority of the people like.”

While Hamtramck is still viewed as a bastion of multiculturalism, the difficulties of local governance and living among neighbors with different cultural values quickly set in following the 2015 election. Some leaders and residents are now bitter political enemies engaged in a series of often vicious battles over the city’s direction, and the Pride flag controversy represents a crescendo in tension.

“There’s a sense of betrayal,” said the former Hamtramck mayor Karen Majewski, who is Polish American. “We supported you when you were threatened, and now our rights are threatened, and you’re the one doing the threatening.”…

The resolution, which also prohibits the display of flags with ethnic, racist and political views, comes at a time when LGBTQ+ rights are under assault worldwide, and other US cities have passed similar bans, with the vast majority driven by often white politically conservative Americans.
