Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar makes history by wearing hijab on the floor of the House of Representatives as rules are changed to allow religious head coverings - then is sworn in on the Koran

 Ilhan Omar -- one of two Muslim women ever elected to Congress -- made history Thursday when she wore her hijab on the House floor.
The Congresswoman from Minnesota was all smiles as she was sworn in on Capitol Hill ... where she was surrounded by a throng of supporters, many of whom were also wearing hijabs. Omar's no stranger to politics -- she served in the state legislature before making her historic run for Congress.
Omar -- the first Somali-American in Congress -- has also never shied away from her religion in public. In fact, during her victory speech on Election night, she dropped the Arabic phrase, "alhamdulillah" ... which means "all praise to God."
The 37-year-old -- who came from a refugee camp in Kenya some 23 years ago -- ran on very progressive platforms ... such as hiking the minimum wage, universal healthcare and free college tuition. 
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from Michigan -- the other Muslim woman elected to Congress -- got quite the reception Thursday on the steps to the Capitol.

  2. If we keep letting mooslims into our government, pretty soon we won't have a country. Those pieces of shite are out to ruin anything and everything that is not about their satanic way of life.

  3. All pigs are equal.But some pigs are more equal than other pigs. I paraphrase George Orwell. This Globalist bull$hit is growing a bit tiresome. These attacks on the Republic should be dealt with sternly and quickly. Just my opinion. Sharia overruling the Constitution? Never! LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC

  4. Our country should be ashamed to let them tell us what they can wear in public in a public place like the Congress. They are public servants...not warped fashion experts on what the best dressed raghead should wear into Congress!!!! Next we'll see the folks from Hawaii wearing hula skirts and Aloha shirts...and the Alaska folks wearing mukluks and fur coats!!! Enough of this f***king diversity crap already and dress like a proper woman without the goddam rag on your head!!!!
