Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women newly-elected to Congress, is helping spearhead an effort to allow religious headwear, such as hijabs or kippahs, on the House floor.

This will benefit the alt-right politicians like Steve King. They can now wear their white hoods. Maybe next year they will be able to wear their white sheets as well.

Have't we had orthodox Jews in congress before?

I'm all for inclusion but don't understand how this move might affect, or counteract, the separation of church and state. Perhaps we need to elect a few Amish candidates to gauge their opinions about proper attire for government work.

"Joe Lieberman."

He refers to himself as "observant" rather than orthodox, I believe. Anyway, he was never in the House. Different bodies, different rules.

"Its all roses and unicorns until a Christian wears a mantilla; then the sky would be falling ..."

Yeah, Christians in the US are SO oppressed.../snark

Seriously?

IMHO - you either allow head wear or you don't. Religion isn't part of the state. And the bit about wearing a mantilla is just precious. Never ever seen anyone wear one in the RR circles.

The Democrat party has a rich history of KKK affiliation. You can taunt and lie and disagree, but it's true. Democrats tried to prevent Blacks from voting. Democrats prevented a civil rights act in 1875. Unfortunately a few Republicans were members of the KKK, but not nearly as many as Democrats. Robert Byrd was famously a member of the KKK and filibustered the Civil Rights act of 1964. Even Harry S. Truman was a member of the KKK, but not very active. It goes on and on.

Well Dems, so much for separation of church and state, huh? You fight against one religion to make sure nobody has to be introduced to it but then fight for other religions to be able to have their freedoms.

Hypocrisy is alive and well in both parties, it's just nice to have a great example of it with Dems so their mouths can be shut. Having to listen to all that whineyness requires a break every now and then.

Also, to use another hypocritical statement made by Liberals in Republican-controlled climates...do Dems REALLY have nothing better to do than spend their time on headwear? Obviously both parties are full of this type of crap but it's so fun to poke fun at Liberals who regularly try to make sure the whole world knows their poop doesn't stink.

How is this not separation of church or state?

Allowing any religion to wear their magic garb is separation.

Allowing only one religion to wear their magic garb is not.

It "goes on and on" yet your last example is from 1964. This is the year 2018. It's the Republicans who are affiliated with white supremacy now. Some are even starting to admit it. Neo-Nazis are voting Republican, not Democrat!

#14 | Posted by DirkStruan Actually, the original Klan was 100% Democrat, It was disbanded by it's leadership in 1877. The second Klan was started in Georgia before the first world war and got to be a national organization, again the vast majority of it's members were Democrats. After the national organization was sued out of existence, that movement fragmented into small local groups with various levels of success. The desegregation push and the civil rights movement fueled their membership, and the again vast majority were Democrat. Now they are a loose network of various covens with perhaps 2 to 3 thousand active members. At least that is what the FBI and actual history says.

#35 | Posted by Danforth, Note the two southern senators that voted for the act were both from Texas. Your source is good, but note that over 80% of southern Democrats voted against the act. More than ten times the number that voted for the measure. I remember those days pretty well. No one had any doubt back then who was for that measure and who was against it. No amount of revisionist history can change that.

"Note the two southern senators that voted for the act were both from Texas"

Which is not what you claimed.

"note that over 80% of southern Democrats voted against the act."

So you've moved the goalposts, and it's still not what you claimed.

"No one had any doubt back then who was for that measure and who was against it."

And no one has had any doubt since those folks left the Dems, and joined the Republican party, just as LBJ predicted. Good God, old man, you lived through that transition; weren't you paying attention?

Actually, the original Klan was 100% white.

It was also 100% male.

You have zero idea how they voted.

Besides...

There were no recognized political parties in the Confederate States of America. Most Southerners, including Confederate President Jefferson Davis, opposed political parties, considering them to be a corruption of the principles of republican government.

While 100% of southern Republicans voted against the act.

Meanwhile...

✔ Introduced in the House on June 20, 1963 as H.R. 7152 by a Democrat (Emanuel Celler D–NY).
✔ In the US House, more southern Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did southern Republicans. Overall, more Democrats voted for the Act than did Republicans.
And...
✔ In the US Senate, more southern Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did southern Republicans. Overall, more Democrats voted for the Act than did Republicans.
Finally...
✔.Signed into law on on July 2, 1964 by a Democrat (President Lyndon B. Johnson)

The original House version:

Republican Party: 138–34

Cloture in the Senate:
Democratic Party: 44–23
Republican Party: 27–6

The Senate version:
Democratic Party: 46–21
Republican Party: 27–6

The Senate version, voted on by the House:
Democratic Party: 153–91
Republican Party: 136–35

What was that again, how "ever(y) member of congress that voted against the Civil Rights Act were Democrats"?
