The number of Muslim registered voters is up 324,000 since the last Presidential election. As our State Department continues to seed small and large communities across America, expect to see more and more of these results. Speaking of America, does anyone see an American flag anywhere in the room during Ilhan Omar’s acceptance speech in her native language?
Does the idea of Sharia Law still seem like a far-fetched idea in America?
Political jobs held by two veteran Democratic politicians have been outsourced to two young immigrants, underscoring the growing impact of mass immigration on white-collar Americans.
The two Democrats who have lost their jobs to immigrants are both experienced, established and liberal members of the state’s version of the Democratic party: 22-term Rep. Phyllis Kahn and 10-term Rep. Joe Mullery, both from Minneapolis.
They were beaten in state primaries on August 9 by two political newcomers: Somali-born, hijab-wearing Ilhan Omar and Thailand-born Hmong immigrant, Fue Lee. The primaries were arranged by the state’s Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party.
Ilhan Omar’s website attributed her win to immigrant Somalis: “More than 250 volunteers and 450 individual donors supported Ilhan’s campaign. ‘I am so proud that the majority of contributions to my campaign are from members of the Somali community who believe in my leadership,’” the site said. Somalis in other states supported her, including Washington state and Ohio.
Kahn was actually beaten by two Somalis–Omar and Mohamud Noor. She had only 1,726 votes to Omar’s 2,404 votes. The second Somali candidate, Noor, edged Kahn with 1,738 votes. Compared to 2014, primary turnout rose by almost 40 percent in the 60B district, which includes most of the University of Minnesota.
