Last week, Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove a car into a large crowd on campus and carried out a knife attack that injured eleven people. True to form, leftists were slow to reason but quick to silence any judgement over Abdul’s actions.
Even professor William Clark, who suffered injury in the attack, wanted to wait to see ‘exactly why he took the course of action that he chose to’. Just another misunderstood, oppressed migrant – a victim of the same country that gave him money to attend OSU in the first place.
Americans recognize the patterns of these attacks.
Almost all terrorist attacks that have occurred in the United States post- 9/11 have been committed by radicalized Muslim men between the ages of 18-35 years old in the defense of Islam. As ISIS calls for the continuation of lone wolf attacks against the West – the Muslim perception problem only escalates.
Recently, I’ve noticed a new method adopted predominantly by the Somali refugee community to manage this crisis.
Their solution is to promote their most attractive Muslim women to the position of managing damage control. Whether it’s a news anchor in Canada, a pageant contestant, or a state legislator – this technique is being implemented to distract us with a call for inclusion and progress. After all it’s the West’s fault these attacks are happening and pretty girls in hijabs make everything better, right?
Meet Illhan Omar – the first female, Somali-American lawmaker.
Omar was elected this November as a Democratic Farmer Labor legislator in the Minnesota House of Representatives – unseating one of the longest serving House reps in state history. Her family immigrated to the United States in 1995 after living in a refugee camp in Kenya owing to the Somali Civil War.
She now represents Cedar-Riverside, an area of Minneapolis that is home to the largest Somali/Muslim community in the United States. I’m from Minnesota. I grew up ten minutes from this neighborhood which has become a depressed ghetto referred to as ‘Little Mogadishu.’ This community refuses to integrate but has no problem signing up for social services provided by Lutheran Churches or government welfare benefits.
Sharia law is taught in their community schools.
Oh, and it’s a top recruitment ground for ISIS and other radical organizations like the Al-Shabaab terror group.
One of Omar’s first actions as representative-elect was to ask for leniency from Senior US District Judge Michael Davis after nine Minnesota men convicted of plotting to join ISIS in Syria. She argues that ‘such stiff punishment would cause further alienation and create an environment in which extremism can flourish.’ She suggests an inclusive approach that includes sunshine, rainbows, and delusion. Pretty girl Omar to the rescue annnnnnd no one is saved and no one is safe.
Now let’s turn to Halima Aden.
Halima Aden is a 19-year old, brace-face Somali teen from St. Cloud, Minnesota who advanced in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant semi-finals. You might have heard of St. Cloud in the news back in September when our friend Dahir Adan, another Somali refugee hacked his way through a mall in the name of Allah, stabbing ten people.
But, I would be racist to draw any patterns here.
While I assume Halima was extremely articulate and is objectively a stunning woman, she bypassed mandated requirements of the pageant (like wearing a bathing suit) because she is a Muslim. The non-Muslim contestants who went to the gym, spent money on bathing suits and agonized themselves to be fit because they were being assessed on their physical form were told to go fuck themselves. Because now we have another pretty Muslim face to deter any negative sentiment America will surely feel after another terrorist attack, committed by an ugly, Muslim man.
This week, in a stunning political U-turn, Angela Merkel called for a burka ban in Germany. While this will do little to dilute the damage she has already done by opening the country’s borders to over a million refugees last year, she was re-elected by a large majority of her CDU party in hopes of remaining Chancellor.
