Somali Muslims in Minnesota. A Conversation.

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."
I'd like to know who is teaching these young men to think this way. Who are the leaders in the Somali Muslim community pushing for the takeover of America? These boys didn't come up with this themselves. They were taught. This must stop.
Here's another important conversation from today:
Q: Peggy, politics aside, Cedar Riverside needs an upgrade for Humanitarian reasons. Somali Leaders Bihi and Fafumo Yousef, in good faith, asked the GOP for help in deradicalizing youth. Will you contact and support them? #MinnesotaLibertyAlliance
A: What do you mean the Somali leaders need help "deradicalizing" Somali youth? How is SPENDING ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO put up a 6 foot fence around Cedar Riverside and security cameras going to help "deradicalize" Somali youth? President Obama brought Abdi Warsame here to bring would-be terrorist boys to Minnesota so we could "reprogram" them with Minnesota nice guinea pigs. Part of his "Countering Violent Extremism" Program (CVE). IT DIDN'T WORK. So, Minneapolis taxpayers are GOING TO PAY ONE MILLION DOLLARS MORE to keep violent Somali youth from attacking older Somalis at Cedar Riverside? What the heck is going on? I'm sorry the elders fear their own radicalized youth but this is not a fix to a larger problem. We need to STOP THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RADICALIZING THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.
