Is Old Joe Biden losing what little grip he had?
The reputed president hosted a reception in the White House Monday to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim feast marking the end of Ramadan, the monthlong season of fasting by day and gorging by night, and he was in even worse form than usual. The senescent corruptocrat who holds the job that not too long ago entitled him to be called the leader of the free world was slurring his words and making wildly inappropriate cracks. At one point he even told an audience member, “Hush up, boy,” which would have made for at least a week’s worth of media outrage for his predecessor, if not impeachment proceedings. All in all, Biden’s Eid display was another I-told-you-so moment for the Democrats who wish Old Joe would just go away already.
Biden's "Hush Up, Boy" Comment Sparks Outrage
President Joe Biden is facing backlash for making racially insensitive comments during a White House celebration of Eid-al-Fitr. From referring to a Muslim judge as "boy" to using racist language towards attendees, Biden's behavior has sparked outrage and criticism from many Americans, particularly Muslim Americans. Additionally, Biden's comment calling Rep. Ilhan Omar "beautiful" has been criticized for being inappropriate and objectifying. The incident has highlighted the hypocrisy of the Democrat Party's supposed commitment to anti-racism. The treatment of Muslim Americans at the event has also raised concerns.

Biden struggled with his teleprompter even more than usual and was often defeated. In the midst of a lengthy bout of Islamopandering, he declared: “Muslims surveyed and served very, very bravely in the U.S. Armed Forces and law enforcement.” “Surveyed and served” was clearly a matter of the dementia-ridden octogenarian reading his cue cards wrong and then correcting himself. A bit later on he said: “And the cheer from Muslim —” No, that can’t be right, Joe, try again: “We cheer for Muslim athletes, like Kareem” – uh oh, you know this is going to be a tough one for The Big Guy – “Alj- — Alj- — Abdul-Jabbar.” Old Joe tried to cover for this by adding: “I know him, and I still mispronounced his name. But he calls me ‘Joe Bidden’ once in a while.” That almost certainly was yet another lie from Joe, but the audience, knowing that the jabbering old man who is supposed to be president was very much on their side, dutifully laughed, anyway.
Even amidst all his pandering, however, the alleged president managed to make some clumsy and tone-deaf remarks. He called out, “Congresswoman Omar. Where are you, Congresswoman Omar?” When the winsome and patriotic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu) responded, “Right here.” Biden said: “I’m not supposed to — I’ll get in trouble for saying this, but you look beautiful tonight.” Omar is a Sharia-adherent, hijab-wearing Muslim. The basis for the hijab in Islamic theology is that it is supposed to reduce a woman’s attractiveness and thereby remove the possibility that men will be tempted; for Biden, as a male who is unrelated to Omar and an infidel at that, to tell her that she looks beautiful was the height of inappropriateness. If he weren’t pretending to be president, he would indeed have gotten in trouble for saying such a thing.
Biden also boasted that Muslims in his regime were working away at his socialist, America-Last agenda: “Muslim Americans in my administration are working on everything from making sure our veterans get quality healthcare, to meeting the climate crisis, to representing Americans overseas as members of our diplomatic corps.” But as Biden was in mid-pander, an audience member called out: “We also have the first federal judge — Muslim federal judge. The only one.” Biden began to reply, but the audience member kept talking until Papa Dementia snapped: “You want to come and make a speech? Hush up, boy.” Boy? Who are you calling “boy,” Joe? If Biden had an “R” after his name, this “boy” would have been screaming headline news all Tuesday morning. But as always, Old Joe gets a pass.
Pious Joe also seized yet another opportunity to run down his own tradition, marveling at how Catholics have it easy compared to Muslims in terms of fasting: “It’s not so different than we Catholics have Lent. We do it for 40 days, but not nearly as hard as your time. It’s a little longer than Ramadan, but we get to eat and drink during the day, which makes a big difference, to say the least.” Sure, but Biden didn’t mention that during Ramadan, Muslims feast all night, which makes the fast look quite different. Nor did he note that the traditional Lenten fast, which some Christians still observe, involves eating no meat, dairy, or fish for forty days, and that’s far more rigorous than Ramadan. Why did Catholic Joe have to go out of his way to compare his own faith unfavorably to Islam? Why does he profess to be a pious Catholic and yet never miss an opportunity to denigrate Christianity or foster legislation that is opposed to its teachings?
Biden concluded by wishing the audience a “Happy Eid Mubarak.” The name of the feast is actually “Eid al-Fitr,” that is, the Feast of Breaking the Fast. “Eid Mubarak,” or “Blessed feast,” is what Muslims say to one another on the big day. So what Biden was saying to his guests was the equivalent of saying “Happy Merry Christmas.” Just more tone-deafness, and one more indication that it’s long past time for Old Joe to retire to his taxpayer-funded walled Delaware beach house and catch up on those Matlock reruns.
NJ mayor blocked from White House, calls for reform

Old Joe Biden held a big party for Muslims at the White House Monday, and he went heavy on the pandering, claiming that “Muslims have been part of the United States from the very start.” But conspicuously not playing a part in this lovefest was Mohamed Khairullah, the mayor of Prospect Park, N.J., who complained Monday that the Secret Service had barred him from attending. What’s this, Joe? “Islamophobia” in the Biden regime’s White House? Appoint a special counsel!
News 12 New Jersey reported Monday that Khairullah, “New Jersey’s longest-serving Muslim mayor,” asserted that “officials at the White House told him that the United States Secret Service decided that he could not enter.” Khairullah, in full victimhood mode, lamented, “I guess I’m back to being accused of something.” News 12 New Jersey explains that he was “referencing a 2019 incident where he was detained at JFK International Airport. The Syrian American mayor traveled to Syria in 2015 to aid refugees and to the Middle East last year with no issue.”
Well, there was a bit more to it than just aiding refugees. Back in Sept. 2019, Khairullah was at JFK International Airport in New York City, on his way home from visiting relatives in Turkey. “We just wanted to go and have a good time,” he said, but upon his return, he was held for no less than three hours for questioning. “I don’t go near shady organizations,” he declared and added, “I believe that my constitutional rights were violated” by questions about whether he had met with any terrorists.
It turned out, however, that Khairullah has a history of support for jihad activity. Terrorism researcher John Rossomando noted in Nov. 2019 that it was “more likely that Khairullah was pulled aside by the CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] due to his frequent travel to the Syrian war zone via Istanbul.” Also: “The mayor worked on relief missions and was a board member with Watan USA, the American branch of the London, England–headquartered Watan Foundation. Watan’s partner organizations and some of its leaders have supported and assisted al-Qaeda in Syria. Its co-founder and president, Moaz al-Sibaai, belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood–linked Muslim Council of Britain’s Business and Economics Committee. A 2015 IRS tax form listed Khairullah as a Watan USA board member.” Thus there was every reason for U.S. officials to look twice at Khairullah’s trip.
And as you no doubt expect, there was more: “Khairullah’s social media shows he repeatedly expressed support for Jabhat al-Nusra,” al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria. “Khairullah even thanked ISIS for taking bandits off the streets of Syria.” Khairullah wrote in Jan. 2014, “A good thing that ISIS has done is to eliminate the thieves and bandits in their area of control. Allah knows what was behind this move.”
But Khairullah didn’t note any of that when he decided to go public with this complaint about his questioning by the CBP. “It was definitely a hurtful moment where I’m thinking in my mind that this is not the America that I know,” he said. “I am very familiar with our laws and Constitution.” That’s terrific, seeing as how you’re the mayor of an American city and all that. “And everything that was going on there was a violation.” Even worse, “it’s flat-out insulting. It’s flat-out stereotyping of Muslims and Arabs.” Maybe. But all this made it abundantly clear why the Secret Service had abundant reason to bar Khairullah from Old Joe’s post-Ramadan shindig.
The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), however, disagreed, and fumed: “We call on the White House to override the Secret Service and reinstate the mayor’s invitation, disband the secret watchlist, and issue an apology to [Mayor Khairullah].” In the face of this intimidation, at least so far the Secret Service is standing firm: “While we regret any inconvenience this may have caused, the mayor was not allowed to enter the White House complex this evening. Unfortunately, we are not able to comment further on the specific protective means and methods used to conduct our security operations at the White House.”
There are perfectly good reasons to keep a man such as Mohamed Khairullah away from the White House. The refusal to recognize this is designed to make sure that no one is barred in this way in the future. After Khairullah’s rage and complaints, the Secret Service may become more wary of daring to stop people from entering sensitive areas, no matter how suspicious they may be. Is that what Mohamed Khairullah, the patriotic mayor of Prospect Park, N.J., wants? Is that what any American should want?
