Maryland Democrat Claims Muslim Families Sided With ‘White Supremacists’

A Maryland Democrat appears to be trying to start a culture war between the Muslim community and the LGBT community, as she claimed during a school board meeting that Muslim families have sided with “White supremacists” because they dared speak out against radical gender ideology being taught in schools.

Montgomery County Council member Kristin Mink (D) made the comments during a school board meeting on Tuesday night.

“This issue has, unfortunately, does put … some Muslim families on the same side of an issue as White supremacists and outright bigots,” she claimed. “I would not put you in the same category as those folks, although, you know, it’s complicated because they’re falling on the same side of this particular issue.”

The radical leftist’s attempt at shaming Muslim families came after several Muslim children from the district spoke at the board meeting condemning the schools for not allowing their parents to opt them out of lessons that violate their religious faith.

“Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right that protects the conscience of all people. It allows us to think, express and act upon what we deeply believe. But around the world and in the United States, this freedom is eroding,” one Muslim child, identified as Yasmeen Elkoshairi, told the school board.

According to Mink, that was unacceptable — as she compared parents opting children out of learning about explicit material and radical gender ideology to opting children out of lessons on evolution.

“That is equity,” she claimed. “That’s not an infringement on, you know, particular religious freedoms, just as we cannot allow folks to opt out of teachings about evolution.”

Ismail Royer, who serves as director of the Islam and Religious Freedom Action Team for the Religious Freedom Institute, spoke out about Mink’s claims.

“I was shocked. I was absolutely stunned. That’s the last thing that I thought she was going to say,” she told Fox News. “In fact, the Muslims don’t hate anyone.”

Meanwhile, the school board meeting was filled with students from the district arguing for their First Amendment rights.

“I’m here to talk about my rights. My religion teaches to respect all religions and all human beings and their rights. So does my country’s law. And I want my right back to have an opt-out option,” said one student named Sa’ad.

Ibrahim Raziuddin, who graduated from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) this year, told the school board that he does not agree with the so-called “all-inclusive” curriculum.

“Although the introduction of texts and discussions related to transgenderism and LGBTQ+ may support MCPS’s mission to be all-inclusive… I don’t believe my first grade and third grade cousins are prepared to read and discuss such issues,” he said.
