Omar wins MN House seat; nation's first Somali-American lawmaker



Minneapolis organizer Ilhan Omar made history Tuesday when she won a Minnesota House seat and prepared to become the nation's first Somali-American legislator.

Omar won House District 60B, which comprises parts of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, southeast Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota. It was represented for decades by DFLer Phyllis Kahn. Omar defeated Kahn in a primary contest.

While her election wasn't a surprise in a reliably Democratic district, it carried huge symbolic importance in Minnesota, home to the nation's largest Somali immigrant population. It came just days after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump ripped Somali immigration as a threat to Minnesota.

Following news that the Associated Press had called her victory shortly after the polls closed, Omar said the win was "icing on the cake" of a long campaign season and that she'd be a "voice for the marginalized" at the Capitol.

"I think I bring the voice of young people," she said. "I think I bring the voice of women in the East African community. I bring the voice of Muslims. I bring the voice of young mothers looking for opportunities."

Of course, you all will remember her from when I reported on this:

Immigration fraud: Muslim Minnesota House candidate married her brother; no investigation
Further investigation into social media accounts, news reports, and legal documents support the allegation MN State House of Representatives Candidate Ilhan Omar married her brother, who is not a US citizen, in 2009

Once Rudy is appointed as the new AG perhaps we can start the purge of Muslims living in the USA. Personally, I think if all Trump did was do a birth certificate check for food stamps, welfare etc it would weed out millions of foreign mooches. Cut off the bennies and watch them scatter back to whatever cesspool they came from.
If Trump keeps his word, he will suspend all refugee programs on January 21st. He will cut off all federal funding for Sanctuary Cities, shut down the State Department programs and eliminate any tax breaks the 501 c's get for importing the foreign hordes. Of course, there is always the wall, but cut off the food stamps and that will take care of a lot of it right there.

She was on MSNBC last night, and I caught a little of it. I had missed this thread and first heard about this last night. This is very disturbing and downright appalling.

And now in March 2019 we see just another example of creeping Sharia in this emissary of Satan. This is how it started in Iran, by many accounts, and we are headed down the same ugly path. Looks we may not even get a chance to kick off Crusades 2.0, with these godless invaders being imported in the dead of night and bused to wherever they wish/Muslim majority areas in the US. God help us all.
