It probably never went away, but several news accounts of recent days suggests the attacks on immigrants to the “Rainbow Nation” have picked up lately.
We have chronicled (see my archive here) the fact that South Africa’s black citizens are not welcoming to their fellow black Africans (they didn’t get the Nelson Mandela message I suppose!) from countries to their north. They especially don’t like Somalis!
The international Hard Left (Commies, the Obamas and others) don’t like this bad news getting out broadly because they have much invested in the myth of South Africa as a “Rainbow Nation” now that the whites have been driven from power there.
And, part of that Leftist mythology is that anyone who has been discriminated against in the past couldn’t possibly discriminate against others, right!
As you read this remember these are not white people attacking the immigrants, they are black South Africans! And, since they don’t want that fact to spread widely, you need to spread it widely!
It is a good campaign message, but in reality will get MN no where.
How quickly people forget that in the last few years three other Republican governors made a big show out of withdrawing their states from the federal program (Texas, Kansas, New Jersey) and of course they still get refugees with Texas presently being the top ‘welcoming’ state in the nation.
As they did with those states, the US State Department will simply turn the whole resettlement plan for the state over to a non-profit (contractor) group to manage. (The Tennessee case is on appeal and if by a miracle, TN wins, then that strategy could go up in flames for the feds.)
Don’t get me wrong, there are political considerations for Mr. Johnson as he is up against former governor Tim Pawlenty in the primary, it is definitely worth discussing in the campaign. And, as governor there will be many things the state government could do to rein-in the program by reforming the state’s welfare system, etc.
Indeed, Pawlenty was a Republican establishment governor of the state during the expansion of refugee resettlement to St. Cloud and must have known what was happening. I would say look to his campaign donors and see if he was being funded by big business (poultry!) interests looking for a steady supply of cheap labor to the St. Cloud area. I presume Mr. Johnson has some good investigators at work to discover Pawlenty’s ties to the program while he was governor. LOL! Any photos of Pawlenty snuggling with the Lutheran resettlement people?
“How dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity.”

“A Scandal Trifecta” is what John Hinderaker at Powerlineblog is calling the latest news from the state where ‘Minnesota nice’ takes on new meaning almost daily.
Sorry, I know a lot of good smart Minnesotans, but just now when I wrote about Swedenlikely being the first European nation to fall to the Islamists, it struck me as interesting that Swedes in past centuries populated Minnesota…hmmm…is there some defect in the genes? A gene that is driving people to succumb to invasion? A suicide gene?
One of my top posts in recent days is this one—You are old and white and we are taking over Minnesota!
Everyone has been sending me this latest news about millions in cash leaving Minnesota for Africa, much of it alleged to have been generated by welfare fraud perpetrated by a certain group of Africans the Minnesota nice people (the infidels) continue to welcome to the state.
Just as I hit publish on myprevious postabout the Somali gang members who traveled hundreds of miles to shoot up a Concord, NH wedding on April 22nd, I saw that the Union Leader had an update two weeks later.
(Apologies to any readers who might have alerted me to this story and I missed your e-mail!)
Here is more of the stunning story from the Union Leader(the title I think downplays the seriousness of the event):
NH wedding parking-lot brawl traces back to Ohio street gang grudges
Sure looks like it! This story from New Hampshire is jaw-dropping. And, maybe just a bit more astounding is that it happened in late April and we are just hearing about it.
Why on earth does no national news ever tell the wider public about shocking events like this one!
Leo Hohmann has the news (the small amount that is available!) on the confrontation when Somalis from Nashville, TN, Columbus, OH and Erie, PA descended on a wedding party of 300 causing a riot as shots were fired. And, they think they are going to run Americasomeday…what a joke!
Imagine you’ve met Mr. or Mrs. Right and you go to the altar, say your vows, and just as you start to celebrate your big day, several members of a gang show up to your wedding party uninvited and start shooting.
That’s what police say happened recently in Concord, New Hampshire.
Four men, at least three of them with Somali names, crashed a wedding party on April 22 at the Bektash Temple, where they wore red bandanas associated with a criminal street gang known as the Bloods, “yelled profanities and fired gunshots during a melee in the parking lot,” police told the Concord Monitor.
There were a number of “rivaling” groups, likely gangs, who somehow ended up at the wedding party uninvited, police said. This created a toxic atmosphere where violence was a fate accompli, according to court documents. Police said at least two of the men came armed with handguns and “looking for a fight.”
If you are looking to thank those responsible, look no further than Catholic Charities, Evangelicals at World Relief, Church World Service, and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and others of the big nine resettlement contractors all of which have promoted the resettlement of over 100,000 Somalis to America in the last 3 decades.
The nine contractors….
The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)! From most recent accounting, here.
If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go. Tell that to the President!
This week Judy sent me an interesting facebook post. I’ve decided not to name the author in order to spare her further aggravation.
Normally I wouldn’t post on a social media conversation except this one rings a bell. I’ve heard it before.
In fact in earlier years in the life of this blog, I heard it from time to time. Somali commenters told me that this country had a lot of wide open spaces and they planned to fill it.
In fact in 2010, aSomali woman communicatedwith me to warn that Somalis are creating what she called Tuulas (villages) throughout some states—she mentioned Minnesota and Kansas and Maine. She said:
I have read about what is going on in Kansas and in other small towns like Maine. Somalis will turn these small towns into a largely populated Somali town, because if Minnesota is the U.S capital of Somali people then a small town or city cannot stand a chance.
And, more recently a reader (a Somali?) has told me I am old so I am to be dismissed, implying that I can’t stop the inevitable wave anyway.
So this facebook post sounds perfectly in line with what other Somalis have said to me, and are saying:
Yesterday, I had long social media conversations with two Somali Muslim gentlemen from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I asked them about their goals for improving Minnesota and how they feel about being an American. I also asked them about the million dollar upgrade at Cedar Riverside public housing that Mayor Jacob Frey promised its majority Somali residents this week. After I was called a racist, a fascist, a bigot, stupid and old, here’s what else they shared with me. Nearly verbatim. Thoughts?
“Get with the program, miss. We are here to stay. We never left our Somali heritage or culture.That’s what America is missing. Please stop forcing us to your ways. You’re old and have very old ideas. Get with the program. I’m trying to have my son to be the first Muslim black governor of the state of Minnesota in next 20 years. He’s gonna run as a Democrat. Oh, and on those upgrades at Cedar Riverside. They better give us those upgrades and changes if the Mayor wants to earn our votes. Or else we can always get another Mayor next time around. You see how being an American works? I told you lady please get with the program because Somalis are the latest addition to black folks.
Why should we assimilate? Do you know how stupid you sound? Guess what? We’re here to stay and will transform America for the better. Get that through your thick, ignorant skull. You need to see a doctor. It’s inevitable that Somalis will be taking over and there isn’t anything you can do about it. Again, what’s wrong with Somalis taking over? It is inevitable! This land doesn’t belong to either of us. It is our time to populate it and rule it. Go back to Europe or wherever you’re from if you don’t like it.”
When populations rise, they get cocky (and careless).
And, they are amazingly confident even in light of the fact that Somalia is a failed state because they couldn’t manage to govern it without creating a hellhole.
I suggest that their Leftist trainers (who must be talking to them about ‘old white people’) teach them to not spill the beans prematurely…but then again, let ’em talk!
However, perhaps more interesting is the lack of mention of the arrested man’s name, a critical omission in the first St. Cloud Times version of the story.
Apparently, only after a local radio station posts his pic and names him, did the politically correct St. Cloud Timesbother to report that vital information.
Mayor welcomes Somalis, so why would they want to bomb city hall?
Remember when you read this first account on the 11th, which quotes the great defender of all things Somali, Mayor Kleis, that this office ostensibly targeted for a bomb, is the very office that is silent on anything relating to crimes involving Somalis the office welcomes to St. Cloud with open arms.
The “suspect” (the man) had already been arrested when the St. Cloud Times said this (hat tip: Bob):
Law enforcement has taken a suspect into custody in connection with a bomb threat at St. Cloud City Hall, according to authorities.
Officers responded to city hall at approximately 10 a.m., according to a press release, and conducted a K9 search of the building.
Mayor Dave Kleis said the building was searched after an individual “posted threatening comments and made statements about a bomb in St. Cloud.”
Officers found the suspect on St. Cloud State University’s campus at 110 Atwood Center. The suspect is not enrolled as a student there, according to the release.
Local investigators are working with the FBI, according to Kleis, on the active investigation. The area where the man was found was also searched, according to a press release. No suspicious items were found.
The suspect is being held in the Stearns County Jail in connection with charges of terroristic threats.
However, here we see thatKNSI radioreported the arrested ‘man’s’ name and picture.
Listen to the nutty story the man’ is telling investigators.
(KNSI) – A man who says he felt he was being radicalized is accused of making a bomb threat that referenced St. Cloud’s city hall.
According to the criminal complaint, Abdalle Ahmed Ege, of St. Cloud, posted on his Facebook page “Im bouta bomb this town” on Wednesday morning.
Police found a duffel bag next to a gas can outside city hall. Investigators say the duffel bag contained Ege’s personal items. Police found no explosives when they searched the building.
According to the complaint, the 25-year-old told police that he was being radicalized and posted the threat on Facebook to get attention from the FBI.
He has been charged with two felony counts of making terroristic threats.
A couple hours later the St. Cloud Times got around to publishing his name and photo, see here.
So we are to believe that Ege wanted to get the FBI’s attention to what?—protect him from being radicalized! Why not just walk in to a local police station and describe what you think someone is doing to you. This is nuts, or he is nuts (a distinct possibility!).
We don’t know when Ege arrived in the US, but just know that mental illness is not a reason the feds use to screen out prospective refugees to place in your towns and cities.
