Democrats officially now control the House of Representatives, and one of their first actions as the majority party was to revamp a rule that goes back to 1837 in order to accommodate two Muslim lawmakers.

On Thursday, the chamber voted 234-197 to pass a new rules package, which governs the regulations for members of Congress and is a routine part of starting the legislative session.

What isn’t routine, however, is the change to head-wear regulations. Since the 19th century, the House has kept hats and other head coverings off limits as a sign of formality and tradition for office holders.

But not anymore. Due almost entirely to incoming Democrats who practice Islam, that nearly two-century old rule has been modified. Those Muslim members are Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — who just made headlines for crass language — and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

“During the session of the House, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not wear nonreligious headdress or a hat or remain by the Clerk’s desk during the call of the roll or the counting of ballots,” the new rule states, according to The Hill.

Omar, who wears a head scarf in public, used social media to praise the change, but couldn’t help making a back-handed jab at the president at the same time.

“Yesterday, Congress voted to lift a 181 year ban on headwear to make the #116thCongress more inclusive for all,” she declared.

“I thank my colleagues for welcoming me, and I look forward to the day we lift the Muslim ban separating families all over the U.S. from their loved ones,” she continued.

That last part was referring to the Trump administration’s policies of restricting travel to the United States from certain countries that have known problems with radical terrorism.

Contrary to Omar’s tweet, there is no “Muslim ban,” a fact that the Supreme Court has recently confirmed.

“Chief Justice John Roberts penned the 5-4 opinion in which the court found that Trump’s order was well within his authority as president,” The Western Journal reported in June. “The decision also denied that religious hostility had anything to do with the order.”

“The (order) is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote.

Countries on that restricted list are widely known to be unstable and hotbeds of extremism, such as Syria and Iran. The newly sworn-in Representative Omar must know this, but decided to push a false narrative anyway.

Despite her attempts to politicize the issue, however, it’s hard to get truly worked up about the head-wear change. The updated rule which continues to prohibit random hats but allows religious headgear is reasonable, and plenty of centuries-old laws have been changed in America for the better.

Indeed, allowing religious head coverings isn’t something that only benefits one person. The rule change means that Jewish lawmakers can now wear a kippah or yarmulke and Sikhs can wear a turban, for instance.

Other government branches have already enacted waivers for religious head coverings. Even the U.S. military has eased its rules in this area — and that change happened during the Trump presidency.

The real concern for conservatives is not that Democrats just overturned an obscure rule, but rather that they want to overturn so much else. The left has a laundry list of goals that go all the way up to impeaching the president — and that’s why it’s so important to challenge them and win again in 2020.

        First is the head gear and soon it will be the hajib. Just wait for one of them in a hajib with a machine gun hidden under it. Pelosi doesn’t realize she has opened the door to muslim domination, just like Minnesota and Michigan.

          Actually, Ken, it’s “hijab,” not “hajib.” And “hijab” also happens to be the name of the “head gear” that you’re so frightened of.

          You do realize, don’t you, that the Capitol has metal detectors? And that the vast majority of mass shooter terrorists in the U.S. have been homegrown white conservative males, not Muslim women wearing hijab?

      “Given in” to whom? Are you referring to the change that now allows religious headwear? No need for hysteria and temper tantrums–even this highly slanted article admits that it’s a reasonable change.
      The writers of these opinion pieces know exactly how to push your buttons. They gin up fear and hatred of Muslims; then they tell you about the rule change that accommodates Muslims. It accommodates other religions, too, of course—but they know you’ll immediately go into a tizzy if they stress that the new rule helps Muslim representatives.

      And, so it has begun! They warned us they would destroy America from within, and now we have many sitting in our Congress, ready to implement their sick laws and do away with our way of living. Shame on the people chosen to represent we, the people for allowing such a travesty!

    Once again the representatives we send to serve our laws are indeed breaking the laws. They are changing the rule to accommodate a religion. The separation of church and state is the law. I cannot get behind today’s political views. What took decades to build and perfect is now being ripped apart for political gain.
    It does not help to write to our representatives because they do not hear anything you say. Once in office they cheat, lie and steal as much as they can to help themselves.

    . . . . The muslims are here illegally. It is against Federal Law for muslims to be in this country. This law was signed by President Jefferson during the Barbary Coast Days because he understood that islam and our Constitution are incompatible with each other.
    . . . . This law needs to be enforced. All of the muslims need to be rounded up and deported. They are a Clear and Present Danger to all of us. These are enemy combatants and need to be treated as such. They hate us with every fiber of their being. This is a battle to the death. Either we win WWIII or they do. If they do then the whole world loses.
    . . . . I am a retired Auto Technician that is living on Social Security Disability. I also served in the AF but my disability is not service connected. I am trying to raise the money for me to be able to move back to Texas. I was born there. I am concerned that I may not be able to survive another Wisconsin winter.

    Just remember, there are two houses in Congress. Whatever bull they want to pull will not pass thru the Senate, nor do they have the 2/3 majority to over ride a presidential veto. Relax. Muslims will eventually rule the entire World and the Dems are holding the door open for them.

    I just comments on another article about Nancy but sure appropriate here! Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence stated, “Without morals a republic cannot subsist any lenght of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion…are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” These Democrats are at it again attacking our faith and morals. Nancy came on strong with all these immoral rulings.

    Tlaib got the kind of face and mouth the muzlims invented the burka and hajib to cover up and sharia law to keep that mouth shut.
    For now, there’s only 3 elected muzlims in DC, Ellison and these 2 new ones. There are however a larger number of muzlims that 0bama appointed all through the government, in various positions on the inside, for treacherous purposes. But as muzlims take over more and more city districts (making then no-go zones even for police) this trend will continue. They already have a few ‘judges’ in position that are trying to implement sharia law in their courts instead of US law. These need to be watched very closely, for now they only make noise but if enough other leftist dems team up, they may try and pass some of their BS into law.

    Islam should be banned from all western nations and all Muslims who refuse to renounce Islam should be returned to Muslim countries. Islam is a political ideology that seeks to overthrow the US government and, therefore, falls under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. Anyone who has read the Koran or studied Islamic history will know that. It’s not just terrorists who feel that way. Just look at the 2 Muslim women who are now in Congress. One got there by marrying her brother to get citizenship. The other wants Sharia law and despises free speech.

    She is just another plant in the government to further the takeover of America by muslims. How can she even be in the government when we have a law that bans them from even being in the country. Her very belief goes against the values of America. I bet she even hates Jews also. Someone should ask her about that.

    No ones fault but that of the American people to let foreigners run for office to change our laws to suit them and THEIR people. If this continues, America will be forever changed to protect them, not us. Are we too blind to see our own country being taken over by Satan? I appeal to all US citizens to vote out these devil worshippers in congress when the time comes. Trump may have his faults, but he’s the best we have to fight those scum, but he can’t do it alone. Our president and our country needs all citizens to fight along side him. MAGA

    It’s a sad day for America now that we’ve allowed muslims to infiltrate our government offices. This is how it starts. How long will it be before they take over our government? Consider this, muslims are against birth control. Muslim women drop baby after baby after baby. We currently have over 3 million muslims in the United States. How long before that number multiplys 10, 20 30 times? Wake up America!
