Muslims Standing Up Against the Left’s LGBTQ Agenda
Bringing Muslim immigrants to the West for demographic change has been working in the favor of liberals in elections for decades. But in some places, Muslims are now voicing their opposition to the left’s LGBTQ agenda fed to the children via the education system.
On Friday, June 9, the Canadian daily The Star reported “dueling protests” by three west-end Ottawa schools over gender identity taught in the schools. The protesters opposed teaching LGBTQ material to children, while the counter-protesters supported it.
Ottawa Centre Member of Provincial Parliament Joel Harden, a liberal lawmaker of the New Democratic Party, claimed that he was punched in the face by a woman during the protest for supporting “queer and trans youth.” His claim was challenged by other reports claiming that he accidentally cut himself with a megaphone.
However, the overlooked part of the media story, both in images and narrative, is the presence of Muslims on the protesting side of the crowd. Independent journalist Andy Ngo tweeted a video clip from the footage of the protest. The video shows Muslim men and women voicing opposition to LGBTQ material in schools, with one woman encouraging her young son to stomp on pride (LGBTQ) flags.
Liberal governments in the West and Muslim immigrants from around the world have long enjoyed mutual benefits of a political alliance, with the liberals helping Muslims mass-immigrate and settle in the West and Muslims voting for liberals in elections to help them get or stay in power. But participation in anti-LGBTQ agenda protests may create a political rift between the two allies. A glimpse of this possibility was seen immediately after the Friday protest in Ottawa.
Canadian journalist Élie Cantin-Nantel shared a tweet by a liberal educator, who didn’t like seeing Muslims protesting with conservatives against the LGBTQ movement targeting children and wrote that she’d like to see a new screening process put in place for immigrants to make sure they would “respect Canada’s Human Rights Code.”
In a separate incident, a liberal teacher at a junior-high school Edmonton, Alberta, angrily reprimanded Muslim students in her class for not attending pride (LGBTQ) activities at the school. The teacher’s audio was shared on Rumble by Rebel News.
The audio came as evidence that many Muslim immigrants in the West don’t share or support the LGBTQ agenda of the left and are teaching their children to skip pride events and activities.
Last week, Muslim parents in Maryland joined a protest against the Montgomery County public school district’s headquarters to oppose promoting homosexuality and transgenderism in schools. The Muslim protesters chanted “religious freedom now” and “protect our children” – two well-known conservative demands in the United States.
