Or should I say ‘Minnesotastan?’ For the next week, the fake news media will be swarming with representatives of CAIR, whining about how Trump’s speech has endangered the lives of all the Somali freeloaders in Minnesota and their radical Somali Congressmuslim- Ilhan Omar.

They reacted most strongly when Trump vowed to curb the influx of refugees and took aim at U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., calling her “a disgrace to our country.” “I knew it,” said Mohamed Ali, the coffee shop’s Somali Muslim manager who warned patrons that the president would say something critical about Somalis. “This guy is a big hater.”
Some recited difficulties that have befallen the community since Trump’s election, including a lack of jobs and a rise in hate crimes. (Lack of jobs? That’s funny, there are more jobs and more people working now than in the past several decades. I guess Americans finally understand that it is not good business to hire Somali Muslims)
Trump’s visit also spurred anxiety and fear for many Somalis here.
The nation’s largest Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR local and Somali-elected leaders were sounding the alarm about the long-term implications of Trump’s visit, suggesting it could spark a fresh surge in hate crimes in Minnesota — home to the nation’s largest Somali community.
“We’re also definitely concerned about his anti-Muslim and anti-Somali language,” (He’s just reflecting the mood of the country) said Jaylani Hussein, who leads the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which had urged Muslim-Americans to join protests Thursday.
State Rep. Mohamud Noor, DFL-Minneapolis, said it’s one thing dealing with Trump’s anti-Somali slurs and his hateful posts on social media about immigrants and refugees. But his visit to Minneapolis struck fear close to home, Noor said. (That was the idea)
Fresh in Minnesota Somalis’ minds was Trump’s effort to bar refugees from Somalia and six other Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, his past remarks that Somalis are a “disaster” and a strain on Minnesota, and his constant attacks on Omar.
State Rep. Hodan Hassan, DFL-Minneapolis, said she opposed Trump’s visit, asserting that it could have negative blowback on the community. (Maybe it’s time to return to Somalia, if it’s too dangerous here))
To address the fear and anxiety in the community, Minnesota Somali leaders said they are working with the FBI, have hired armed security guards to patrol Somali-owned businesses and are urging people to stay vigilant, particularly Muslim women who wear a hijab. (I hope Minnesota taxpayers aren’t paying for this)
