The Washington Post Wants
You to Fast for Ramadan

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 5/5/2020 4:45:40 AM

The far-Left anti-Trump propaganda organ masquerading as a news source and operating under the name the Washington Post on Thursday published an inspiring op-ed entitled “As American Muslims fast this Ramadan, maybe the rest of America should consider joining in.” The Post’s articles exhorting people to keep the Lenten fast or the Yom Kippur fast have not yet been published, but I’m sure that they will be when the appropriate times for them roll around again. Won’t they? In the meantime, I’ll consider fasting for Ramadan, but I have a fairly good idea of what my conclusion will be. The article’s author, the imam Omar Suleiman, “founder and president

OK, WaPo, here's how it works. You go to work the first day and fast. This also means no tobacco, booze (obviously), etc. At sunset, you can eat and party all night. At sunrise, you go to work, fast, and likely fall asleep. You do this for about thirty days. It's basically reverse cycle schedule except your boss doesn't get any work out of you during normal business hours. Then you're fired. So go ahead, I'd love to see your rag go down the tubes.

You know what we can fast for? We can fast for our country and all of our freedoms; if Muslim, fast for Ramadan. I found out it is not that hard. I buy a gallon of distilled water, a box of soup without vegetables, a bottle of sugarless apple juice, and a box of mint tea and i spend less than ten dollars Some of it I use the next day I don't eat. It's very good for your health to get rid of toxins. Just a little sacrifice so God will know we are trying and are sorry for the times we didn't. And when you do it once a week, you could try to do it twice a week. We desperately need His help.

Jesus became known and loved by dying for us on the cross. Islam was started by a sixth century pervert who murdered thousands of people and slept with little girls and boys. He wasn't satisfied with that much power and had to create his own god and declare himself a prophet. The only thing that muslims do today that does the rest of society any good is that they require their women to cover themselves and they don't affect our bacon supply.

During Ramadan, the fasting is only during daytime. Then, they pig out at night. Having lived among Muslims and observed Ramadan first-hand, I would tell the Washing Post to try understanding Ramadan better, if they want to take a position on it!

The notion that we should bow down to Islam to appease our Muslim neighbors is popular on the left and right coasts. The rest of America not so much. These people don't even live on the same planet as the rest of us. They sit in their offices or on their cable news sets and attempt to tell the rest of us what we should believe and how we should behave. It has not dawned on them yet that their ship has sailed and they weren't on it. Articles like this are held in contempt by the vast majority, as is the entire corporate media complex.

Perhaps if Christianity and Judaism would get with practices that have made Islam so attractive to so many, you know the ones I am talking about, public beheading and stoning, castration and female mutilation, public amputation, and the rest of the litany of devotion that certainly puts to shame the Catholic Rosary, Christian communion, and and the Stations of the Cross, I would feel a deeper attraction for fasting in Ramadan. I wonder if it ever occurs to liberals that if the Muslim community could somehow install Sharia law, liberals would be among the first to be stood UP AGAINST THE WALL or have their necks placed on THE CHOPPING BLOCK. Probably not. Due to their apparently genetic blind spot that keeps them from seeing the reality directly in front of them, hence they remain in the befuddled state in which we so often find them, ready to fall for just about any silly idea like, for example, pushing FASTING FOR RAMADAN.

To begin with, there is no way ever that I would take any recommendation from the defunct Washington Post! This rag along with the New York Times are pure America hating trash. This proposal to the citizens to fast during Ramadan is a joke. Muslims fast at this time, not Christians. They respect every religion but will never follow a proven blood thirsty murdering cult. This program will go over real big in New York state though where Cuomo feeds the muslim community during this pandemic time while squatting and threatening to put Christians in jail.

In 1665, François Duc de la Rochefoucauld famously opined “Hypocrisy is a tribute that vice pays to virtue.” That definition may have been witty at the time, but seems a bit feeble in our era when Nancy Pelosi states she absolutely believes Joe Biden did not sexually assault Tara Reade and she will not “answer this question again.” As we know, this contrasts with the Pelosi who until recently was repeatedly reciting the “believe all women” mantra, as was Biden himself.

Across the nation, protesters are taking to the streets and business owners are filing lawsuits objecting to the shutdown rules. As the shutdown drags on, it’s causing job losses, bankruptcies and a sense that people are being robbed of their rights. The liberal media label the protesters virus deniers. But the protesters have science and the US Constitution on their side. Not to mention common sense. As Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday, “This is not a sustainable situation. Close down everything, close down the economy, lock yourself in the house.”

The defense of Joe Biden on the allegations that have disrupted his campaign has gone through some fascinating twists and turns. At first, in the wake of Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in 1993, the reaction in media and political circles was largely silence. Reade seemed to come out of nowhere, so there was little need to acknowledge her story. Many media outlets stuck with silence after the New York Times and Washington Post published their accounts 19 days later. In other outlets, the second reaction was that she was probably not telling the truth -- after all, no Biden Senate staffer could recall her making the charge

The Justice Department on Wednesday released a mostly unredacted version of then-Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's August 2017 "scope memo" outlining the authority of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller -- and the document reveals for the first time that Mueller's authority went significantly beyond what was known previously. Rosenstein, who later left the Justice Department for a law firm, oversaw Mueller's probe and played a central role in its still-unfolding drama. He was the subject of a two-page memo written by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that outlined how Rosenstein allegedly proposed wearing a wire in the White House "to collect additional evidence on the president’s true intentions,"

In 2003, during the George W. Bush administration, the columnist Charles Krauthammer coined the phrase "Bush Derangement Syndrome" to refer to some of the president's more unhinged critics. It was funny, and given Krauthammer's background — he was a medical doctor specializing in psychiatry — it had the ring of truth. Now, the nation is in the fourth year of Trump Derangement Syndrome. And there are plenty of indications that the condition, already acute, has been made worse by the coronavirus crisis. Just Google "Trump" and "blood on his hands." But for some in the media and politics, Trump derangement is more than a syndrome. It is a business — show business.

It is almost worthy of a dark Netflix series to watch how the sins of these people keep coming back and back and back to revisit them.

Texas created a Wuhan virus martyr

On Tuesday, Texas may have created the anti-lockdown movement’s first martyr when a Dallas judge sentenced hairstylist Shelley Luther to a week in prison for the crime of trying to provide for her own and her employee’s families. Texas is home to 28,995,881 people. It’s had 32,879 diagnosed Wuhan virus cases (that is, 0.11% of the population got diagnosed) and 890 virus deaths (0.003% of the population). Most of the cases are linked to nursing homes or people with co-morbidities. Even in nursing homes, though, things needn't be so dire.

If you’re a healthcare worker who went to New York to volunteer to help fight the coronavirus outbreak there, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says you owe New York state income taxes. Even if you were not working for any pay in New York, but you were still being paid in your home state. Pay that enabled you to volunteer and put your own health in danger to help New York. That’s classic taxation without representation. Americans have a history of not liking this. Health care workers that came to New York to help fight the coronavirus pandemic at its epicenter will have to pay state taxes, according to the governor.

Why do you not like Donald Trump? I asked my brother. "Because he is a d---" was his reply. Such a deep, meaningful answer!Why I never felt the same way is a question I have often asked myself. Prior to his campaigning and his presidency, I never felt any hatred for the man. Having an interest in property, I read his books and enjoyed watching The Apprentice, and not once did I feel any animosity. Trump was such an admired figure by many businesspeople, celebrities, and politicians prior to his announcement that he was running for president. Yes, he had his detractors, but

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Marco Rubio of Florida said they are inclined to provide more aid to states, despite the president warning that he opposes giving more money to states that have been “mismanaged” by Democrats. “No doubt states have been hit pretty hard,” Mr. Graham told reporters
