POLL: Do you approve of Congress changing the rule against head coverings on the House floor?

JANUARY 6, 2019

On Thursday, the House of Representatives, including several newly sworn-in members of Congress, passed a new rules package intended to “restore inclusion and diversity.”

Among the new rules was an exception to a 181-year-old ban against the wearing of any head coverings on the House floor. Now, for the first time since 1837, headwear may be worn on the House floor – if it is for religious reasons. The rules package passed in a 234 to 197 vote.

Also on Thursday, the first female Muslims were sworn in to office – Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American from Michigan, and Ilhan Omar, a Somalian refugee from Minnesota.

Omar, who wears a head covering, celebrated the new rules package with a statement on Twitter, writing, “Yesterday, Congress voted to lift a 181 year ban on headwear to make the #116thCongress more inclusive for all. I thank my colleagues for welcoming me, and I look forward to the day we lift the Muslim ban separating families all over the U.S. from their loved ones.”

PLEASE TAKE OUR POLL BELOW – WE WANT YOUR OPINION. Do you approve of Congress changing the rule against headwear on the House floor?

    Bow down and kiss the Muslim’s ass. You dicks let them in government and now you want to change the rules just for them, if you think it will end with head covering you are mistaken, that’s only the beginning.

    The beginning of the takeover, and it will them wanting more and more, they will want pork to be not served in the cafeteria, Hala meat, prayers 5x per day, the government has opened a can of worms and America is in trouble.
    If we the people don’t stop this we will soon lose much more.
    Our whole foundation is at risk because politicians are corrupt and are NWO.
    No MUSLIMS should be in any form of government, both woman are against Jews and Israel and we are next.

    All government official’s finally showed how stupid they all are. Don’t care how much education or money you have – when you make stupid decisions your just plain stupid. So afraid to show you have any backbone or stand up for the Constitution that made America the great country it was. Now you’ve been sold a worthless bill of goods and your so happy. When it bites your ass blame your pansie ass twinkie brains that you let it happen.

    If the rules would have been changed a long time ago that would be fine. The fact that they changed the rules to accommodate a Muslim is total crap!

    Yes what about that bothersome church/state issue? Doesn’t it apply here, too? And especially making an exception for someone whose idealogy is diametrically opposed to the very foundation of our government. Tlab lied when she took that oath of office; she had/has no intention of upholding and defending our Constitution or laws. She should be impeached for fraud along with the other rabid wolves in sheepskin.
