"Dhimmirat” (dhimmi + rat/Democrat) is a slang name for the Democrat party, used by speakers who believe that Democrats act like “dhimmis” toward Muslims and especially Muslim extremists. A “dhimmi” is a non-Muslim subject who accepts a lower legal status under sharia (or Islamic) law; often a tax such as “jizya” must be paid by dhimmis to practice a non-Muslim religion. The older term “dhimmicrat” (dhimmi + Democrat) dates to at least 2003.
“Dhimmirat” has been cited in print since at least 2005. The spelling “dhimirat” has been used since at least 2011. Both uppercase ("Dhimmirat") and lowercase ("dhimmirat") have been used.
A dhimmi (Arabic: ذمي [ˈðɪmːiː], collectively أهل الذمة ahl al-dhimmah, “the people of the dhimma or pact of protection”; Ottoman Turkish & Urdu zimmi, “one whose zimma [responsibility of protection] has been taken") is a non-Muslim subject of a state governed in accordance with sharia law. The term connotes an obligation of the state to protect the individual, including the individual’s life, property, and freedom of religion and worship, and required loyalty to the empire, and a poll tax known as the jizya, which complemented the Islamic tax paid by the Muslim subjects, called Zakat.
This status was originally only made available to non-Muslims who were People of the Book (i.e. Jews and Christians), but was later extended to include Zoroastrians, Mandeans, and, in some areas, Hindus and Buddhists. Dhimmi had fewer legal and social rights than Muslims, but more rights than other non-Muslim religious subjects. This status applied to millions of people living from the Atlantic Ocean to India from the 7th century until modern times.
Conversion by a dhimmi to Islam was generally easy, and almost without exception emancipated the new convert from all legal impairments of his previous dhimmi status. Violently forced conversion was known in early Islamic history, but increased in frequency in later centuries, such as in the Almohad dynasty of North Africa and al-Andalus.

Dingy Harry doubles down on defeating America – UPDATE – it’s official

A few things:
- El-Slimeroad said, “Congress can’t afford to be characterized as backing down at this point…. If he vetoes it, he’s basically challenging us to accept his will.” Isn’t your desires for dhimmitude and an emasculated Presidency what you and the DhimmiRATs are trying to cram down the President’s and our throats, Russ?

Hermann Cain only needs to stay on message. Don’t deviate from Conservative principals. Then if elected, govern like a Republican; not like a Dhimirat.
