(Patriot Insider) – A high school graduation in Virginia was hijacked by Islamist radicals last week but don’t expect any national outrage. Jihad-promoting Islamists are allies of the radical left and substituting “Allah” for “God” while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is just part of embracing “diversity” in woke America.
One school board member gave a speech to the graduates in which she told the primarily-immigrant class of high schoolers that they are about to enter a world filled with “racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, [and] white supremacy.”
She further encouraged them to “remember your jihad” and to reject the concepts of objectivity and neutrality.
Fairfax County school board member Abrar Omeish delivered the keynote address at the graduation ceremony for Justice High School in Falls Church, Virginia on June 7.
The commencement kicked off with a ceremony in which JROTC military cadets were the only people wearing masks and the class president led what she referred to as “the nation’s anthem,” AKA the Pledge of Allegiance.
During the Pledge, the class president said the US was “one nation under Allah.” Meanwhile, a picture from the ceremony shows Omeish as being the only person without her hand over her heart during the Pledge.
In her introduction of Omeish, the class president noted that she was “Virginia co-chair for the Bernie Sanders campaign,” and that her father, Esam Omeish, was a “leader and a board member of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center” who “raised his daughter to be an outspoken woman.”
The Daily Wire points out that Dar al-Hijrah is a mosque which was attended by two of the 9/11 terrorists who hijacked planes and killed thousands of innocent Americans. The shooter of the 2009 attack on Fort Hood also attended Dar al-Hijrah.
At one point, its Imam was Anwar al-Awlaki, who Muslim-sympathizer Barack Obama ordered killed by drone strike for helping Al Qaeda to plot terror attacks.
Sure sounds like Dar al-Hijrah is an Islamist terrorist recruitment center. Omeish asserted that her father was in attendance at the graduation.
Her entire address seemed to revolve around the fact that the school served as a political and ideological indoctrination center.
“You all kicked off the first ever black history month assembly to ensure that we confront our history and answer honestly about the ills of our past,” she said.
She went on to praise a teacher who exploited her access to young, impressionable teens to encourage them to become political activists and how to effectively make demands to influence change in school policy.
“Huge shout out to [the class president who called her a “role model”] and Ms. Corey Haynes, a teacher, for her leadership in supporting and empowering students despite the pushback. Let’s hear it for them, guys. They empowered your voice. Your model, Justice Class of 2021, moved the superintendent of the 10th largest school division in the country to follow your lead to teach with courage. And you pushed to incorporate that in the school schedule because you understand that social justice is only political for those who can afford to ignore it.”
“You understand that neutral is another word for complicit,” she said.
She also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to slam America and colonialism by saying, “let us acknowledge the stolen land of the Manahoac people,” in reference to a Virginia Native American tribe.
She continued on to encourage the graduates to continue on being political and ideological activists and seeing resistance, or “haters” as she put it, as a good sign that they’re being effective.
“No matter how many haters emerge, I’m sure you’ve encountered them yourselves, and believe me they’re a sign you’re unsettling the status quo towards justice. Just consider them your cheerleaders of another breed,” she said.
In other words, don’t listen to any other thoughts, perspectives or rationale. Just stick to the course you’ve set out on no matter what anyone else thinks. Typical liberal indoctrination at its finest.
Naturally, Omeish also focused on “equity,” the concept of forced equal outcomes, and said that “Our successes are not worth celebrating until we all come along.”
