On Hamtramck’s social media pages, the celebration continued with comments and taunts like “Fagless City” posted in approval of the new law. The new mayor, Amer Ghalib, said that the action was not hostile but rather an attempt at neutrality and to close the door to other groups that could be extremist or racist, pointing to the fact that the council has banned all flags except U.S., state, city, and POW/MIA banners, not just “pride” flags. But the gay community is still hurt that they don’t get special privileges due to their special relationship. The Detroit mayor even tried a little coercion, attempting the left-perfected art of social shaming, posting: “Detroit @MayorMikeDuggan in response to Hamtramck’s flag ban: ‘The City of Detroit proudly raises our Pride Flag at the start of every Pride Month and allows it to fly throughout the year to show our unwavering support for the LGBTQ+ community and the diversity within.'” “It’s the role of city officials to ensure everyone feels welcome in their community, and everyone is welcome here in Detroit,” he added.
The lgbpb&j groups are up in arms over the all-muslim city council of Hamtramck banning the “pride” rag.The irony is lost on these leftists. https://t.co/HrWyF2KA5I — Morgana Le Faye *Patriot *America 1st* 🇺🇸 (@Keltic_Witch) September 18, 2023
Former Hamtramck mayor Karen Majewski, a Polish American, said there’s a feeling of betrayal. “We supported you when you were threatened, and now our rights are threatened, and you’re the one doing the threatening.” “We welcomed you,” another former council member who identifies as gay, told them. “We created nonprofits to help feed, clothe, find housing. We did everything we could to make your transition here easier, and this is how you repay us, by stabbing us in the back?” she asked, according to the Post. But they’re not. The Muslim community is being who they have always been. It’s like the girl who thinks she can change a boy if she’s nice enough to him. Sure, he’ll eat the home-cooked meal she cooked for him. But that doesn’t mean he won’t go to the bar later that night. It’s not his fault she was living in a daydream. LGBT supporters can’t be upset because the Muslim community is not interested in playing with them. It’s time for them to take their flags and go home.
