Elections do, indeed, have consequences.

And one of the most interesting and perhaps controversial consequences of Nancy Pelosi and Democrats being elected to take control of the House of Representatives come January is their planned rules change to allow religious head covers on the floor of the House.

Head covers as in hijabs, Muslim head scarves covering an entire woman’s head except for her face. The new House will have the first two Muslim females — Ilhan Omar of Minnesota (see above), a Somali refugee, and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib.

For nearly two centuries, hats have been banned from the House floor. The previously updated rule reads:
During the session of the House, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not wear a hat or remain by the Clerk’s desk during the call of the roll or the counting of ballots.

A person on the floor of the House may not smoke or use a mobile electronic device that impairs decorum. The Sergeant-at-Arms is charged with the strict enforcement of this clause.
According to Pelosi, the ban on the ban, one of many planned in a bundle of Democrat changes, would for the first time since 1837 permit head coverings that are religious garb in the House itself. Pelosi says it’s designed to promote diversity and ensure freedom of religious expression on Capitol Hill.

Her other rules changes also involve creating an office of diversity and banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Religious Jews have managed without wearing kippahs on the House floor. No Sikh members yet to test such a ban on religious turbans. And it’s unclear if members of such faiths would even choose to don head apparel, some of which are large enough conceivably to conceal weapons.

Wearing head covers indoors was routine in Congress during the nation’s early days, copying the British tradition of hat-wearing in Parliament.

The movement to ban them and be different from the Revolutionary opponent took several efforts. But finally succeeded on Sept. 14, 1837. “Every member shall remain uncovered during the sessions of the House,” became the rule.

In recent months several U.S. allies in Europe with significant Muslim populations and concerns about terrorism have moved to ban some religious clothing in public, mainly veils and complete body coverings.

I don’t feel bad about the Democrats losing their party, but in a way it’s justice.

You can best believe this won’t be the only change in the House of Representatives going forward.

The landscape of the House of Representatives has changed after the 2018 Midterms. Two Muslims were elected to serve their state in the United States Congress, a first of its kind. One of those representatives, Ilhan Omar-Minn (D), wears headgear because of her religion. Most Americans did not know that there was a ban on wearing hats inside the House of Representatives that was enacted 181 years ago.

That ban has now been rescinded.

The New York Post writes:

The ban was enacted in 1837 by members who wanted to break from the hat-wearing tradition in British Parliament.

They didn’t anticipate Ilhan Omar.

The Minnesota Democrat is one of two Muslim women elected this yearand she’s the first to wear a hijab.

A Democratic source said the rules will be clarified to allow religious headwear, as well as coverings for medical reasons.

“There are those kinds of policies that oftentimes get created because people who have blind spots are in positions of influence and positions of power,” Omar told The Post Thursday.

For Omar’s part, she’s in disbelief she even made it to the Capitol. She joins Rashida Tlaib of Michigan as the first Muslim women. She’s also the first Somali-American and first former refugee.
