Somalis in Ft. Morgan, CO say they can’t assimilate without a mosque

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2016


(Why what Donald Trump says is resonating with voters!)

This is just one more story about Ft. Morgan, Colorado (we have been following their experiment with a growing Somali population for years, click here for our Ft. Morgan archive).  See also Leo Hohmann at WND on Friday—why are we still taking Somali refugees after three decades?

Cargill Inc. in Ft. Morgan is responsible for the influx of an estimated 1,200 Muslim Somalis to the small city in the northeast corner of Colorado. Photo:

Ft. Morgan has Somalis because it is a meatpacking town.  If they had no meat packer, there would be no Somalis clamoring for a mosque.

BIG Meat is changing the face of the American heartland!

From AP at the Santa Fe New Mexican:

FORT MORGAN, Colo. — For the last decade, Somali refugees have flocked to this conservative farm town on Colorado’s eastern plains. They’ve started a small halal mini-market and a restaurant, sent their children to the schools and worked at a meat processing plant run by Cargill Inc.

As much as Fort Morgan’s small town feel reminds many of their rural villages back home, some say they will feel like outsiders until they get what has so far eluded them: a permanent mosque. They are renting two small rooms for a makeshift version, for now.

They say they’ve tried to buy property to build a mosque but believe no one wants to sell to them.

“If we can own a mosque here, we will be more a part of the community,” said Abdinasser Ahmed, a local Somali leader and public schools teacher who fled war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia, in 2003, arrived in Fort Morgan in 2009 to work at the plant and is now a U.S. citizen.

Some longtime residents say they don’t want one in their city of 12,000, a step too far especially at a time when fears of terrorism have grown following the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif.

Putting a mosque “right in the center of town” would be a symbol “as if to claim the town,” said Candace Loomis, who runs a coffee shop and whose grandparents settled this country of sweeping horizons in a two-room sod house.  [Loomis is right, the mosque will mark their Islamic territory.  That is what mosques are!—ed]

If anyone was really serious about assimilation, it would require a moratorium on mass migration to America right now. Just as in the 1930s when America wisely closed the spigot to allow the masses already here to assimilate, we should be doing the same now (if anyone in leadership positions had guts).

In fact, if Republican leaders had ten years ago worked to close, or at least slow, immigration, instead of following the likes of Senator John McCain off a cliff, there would be no Donald Trump in 2016.

  1. Then they can go back to their Islamist hell-hole of a country from which they came, and assimilate there.

    Mosques are also always named after some place moslems have conquered. The land will never again belong to the city or county, and officials need to know that; it will belong to the ummah. Get the religious status taken away from Islam, because it is fascist ideology to start off with.

  5. Trump may not be able to do all he needs to, but he is a start. NO ONE ELSE has any balls or hope to save America. Gee whiz folks, it only took a year for EU to be ruined! AND OUR LIBS WANT THAT HERE NEXT? Yes, maddening! I have much stronger words for it though!. Ann, as an aside, you may not realize how many of us repost, with and without additional comments, your info on facebook. You may be like a lot of us older Americans – the VCR is blinking 12:00 all the time – if you have a young nephew or grandson, or or or, please ask them how to automate your sight to show when we repost you to fb or other. I think you and others will be amazed how often & in what high volume it happens! Now, you have no idea! I think it would help your blog for folks to see! Thank you and keep up the good work!!!!

      Thanks Mike, I do have a computer tech son, but like pulling teeth to get him to help old mom! You do know I have a facebook page for RRW which has a huge following. See it here: It has over 16,000 likes! And, I tweet…which is so much fun! Well, you can see my tweets in the right hand side bar here.

      • I had no idea you were on FB too! you said ” You do know I have a facebook page for RRW which has a huge following. See it here: It has over 16,000 likes! ”

        GREAT! I think I will change over to watching THAT instead of this blog, if all the same info is there. I can more easily repost to my public page from there than here, plus you will get to see who reposts!

          Only problem is that I don’t put every post over there. Was advised by my helper there, Kelly, not to overwhelm you all! By the way, there is a little facebook icon at the bottom of every post. When you click on it, doesn’t it send the story to your facebook (sorry I am so tech-impaired).


          • Yes, that little button works, but it is my guess that you have no idea how often we readers push it! Like that “likes” you mentioned on FB page – it is good to know how many.


  6. Typical. Building a mosque in the middle of town is changing the community to suit the hordes, it’s not the hordes changing to suit the community. Why not fly our own homeless people in to fill these jobs of they need labour so bad? give them all of the state welfare benefits that they heap on the invaders, plus the matching federal funds, and they will have no problems getting established, plus we won’t have to worry about them bringing some dangerous cult to the town.

    There are professional methods of dealing with this.
    Informing is great, but it does nothing to stop this aggression.
    There are those of us out here who have foreign and domestic
    experience with these issues. Why is no one asking for assistance?
    The charts that you have provides are far from accurate on the numbers
    of Refugees and Muslims who are coming in (Being brought in).
    Please let others know there is assistance if they chose. I know the end
    game with this, because I have seen it before, real close.


  8. then send them home – NOW! People of Ft. Morgan, build them a mosque and you are thru! You will be like Sweden and Denmark shortly after that! They operate in 4 STAGES – learn them! SEND THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOW TOLD YOU THEY WILL NOT ASSIMILATE HOME! NO GUESS WORK NEEDED – THEY WILL NOT ASSIMILATE ACCORDING TO THEMSELVES, SO SEND THEM HOME!!!!!!!!

      It is maddening isn’t it Mike, most people have no clue about the Hijrah and how mosques are where Islamists ultimately gather their warriors.

  9. They have Mosque in other cities and states, but still don’t seem to be able to assimilate into U.S. society! Mosque are nothing more than “safe havens” and base camps for terrorist, to stockpile weapons, munitions, explosives and intelligence gathering.

    • Why would we want them to assimilate anyways? let them stay in the wonderful culture they have created, instead of brining them into ours, and expecting us to change to suit them.
