Michelle Obama Hosts Iranian New Year Celebration At The White House

With her husband desperate to make a sucker deal with Iran to allow the rogue Muslim nation to develop nuclear weapons, First Lady Michelle Obama thought she’d get into the spirit of things by hosting an Iranian New Year celebration at the White House on Wednesday. For the optics-conscious Obamas, the timing couldn’t be more perfect with the Republicans’ letter to Iran and Netanyahu’s speech still ruffling administration feathers.

UPI reports:

U.S. First lady Michelle Obama hosted a Nowruz celebration to mark the Persian New Year — traditionally celebrated in Iran and Afghanistan…

The report is a little light on the details of what this celebration entailed, but we know this:

The Silk Road Dance Company performed Wednesday in the East Room of the White House in celebration of the more than 3,000-year-old holiday.

Silk Road? Wasn’t that the dark website that sold illegal drugs over the Internet? It must be a different Silk Road. What is clear is that hosting this event was a calculated move to show Republicans in Congress and the American people where the Obamas’ loyalties lie:

The official start of the nearly two-week holiday observance is March 21, coinciding with the Spring Equinox.

Wednesday was March 11th, ten days before the actual holiday. If you think this wasn’t timed out as a reaction to 47 Republicans sending a letter to Iran to let them know Obama is full of crap, you probably vote for democrats. If you think this pre-emptive Iranian New Year celebration is not related to John Boehner inviting Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress about the dangers of dealing with Iran, you probably donate money to democrats.

Remember when Michelle Obama held that celebration at the White House for the Buddhist New Year? How about the Russian Orthodox New Year? Jewish New Year? Don’t worry; I don’t recall any of those either.

“I think it’s so fitting that we are holding this celebration here today because, one of my favorite things about the White House is how it is truly the people’s house. A house that reflects the diversity of culture and traditions that make us who we are as a country,” said the First Lady.

I guess all of that is true if you don’t consider American culture and traditions as being important to “who we are.”

“And Nowruz is one of those traditions,” continued Michelle Obama.

Really? The Persian New Year is an important American tradition that helped shape us as a nation? I’m sure almost everybody reading this has never heard of this holiday before today.

Hosting this event at the White House was a shameless political move and shows the Obamas’ growing bias for Islamic culture. I can’t wait for the ISIS Day “egg” hunt where underprivileged militant youth search for the decapitated heads of infidels in the Rose Garden.
