Imam Mohammad Tawhidi to Rep. Ayanna Pressley

Sounds to me like:

We don’t need people who think for themselves.

A Quick Rebuke.

Imam Mohammad Tawhidi:

Who the hell are you to say which Muslim has the right to speak?

Imam Mohammad Tawhidi

In response to this Rep. Ayanna Pressley speech:

I don’t want to bring a chair to an old table. This is the time to shake the table. This is the time to redefine that table. Because if you’re going to come to this table, all of you who have aspirations of running for office. If you’re not prepared to come to that table and represent that voice, don’t come, because we don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice. If you’re worried about being marginalized and stereotyped, please don’t even show up because we need you to represent that voice.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley


  • What exactly is a Muslim voice? I need some specifics.
  • What exactly is a black or brown or queer voice?
  • What standards should I adhere to if I want to speak for any of those groups?
  • Who sets those standards?

Imam Mohammad Tawhidi doesn’t care for any of those questions. He took a different kind of approach; He told miss Pressley to get lost. I like the simplicity of this approach.

Favorability of the squad:

The Economist ( July 14 – 16, 2019 )

Interestingly, although The Squad members are not as popular as mainstream media want us to believe they are. It doesn’t prevent them from trying to dictate, who and what can or can not to say.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN),

Favorable: 25%
Unfavorable: 34%
Don’t know: 41%
Net: (-9%)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY),

Favorable: 33%
Unfavorable: 41%
Don’t know: 26%
Net: (-8%)

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI),

Favorable: 24%
Unfavorable: 31%
Don’t know: 45%
Net: (-7%)

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

Favorable: 22%
Unfavorable: 18%
Don’t know: 60%
Net: +4%

It seems to me that Rep. Ayanna Pressley and few others who think exactly like her are trying to assume control over that imaginary table (which I believe represents Democrat Party) and then will decide who will be allowed even to get close to it. I wonder if members of the old guard, like Pelosi or Schumer, will get an invitation.
