Minneapolis City Council Creates Somali-American Day

Eric Roper, Star Tribune, April 12, 2014

The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to mark July 1 as Somali American Day in the city, home to many immigrants from the East African country.

The date holds significance among Somalis, who celebrate independence day on July 1 both in Somalia and the U.S. diaspora. That’s the day the Somali republic was created by uniting territories previously controlled by Italy and Britain.

Abdi Warsame, the first Somali-American on the Minneapolis City Council, praised the resolution at a council meeting on Friday. “This is a very important resolution for me,” he said. “And it actually came from the elders and the community leaders who wanted to highlight the contributions, the culture, the values of the Somali-American community, which is a large and growing population in the city of Minneapolis.”

[Editor’s Note: There are about 32,000 Somalis in all of Minnesota. The Minneapolis–St. Paul metropolitan area has a population of 3.4 million.]

    Minneapolis again! What do those two joggers who were victims of the knock out game have to say about that?

    Police and reporters were eager to identify the attacks as “random.” Except for the fact that the attacks are part of a pattern of racial violence in Minneapolis documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot. Dozens of attacks. All described as random.

      They could replace the Viking with a Somali swiping a EBT card with a fat white woman holding his hand and smoking.

    • Vikings should mount a protest, just like the Indians are protesting the name Redskins. The blacks who play on the Minnesota team are certainly NOT Vikings.

      • D.B. Cooper

        Uhh, you forgot about Heimdall in the Thor movies.

    • So CAL Snowman

      They should replace the Viking horns with rainbows.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        Replace the Viking horns on the helmet with a skull and crossbones… Somalians are poison.

        • me

          Replace the Viking horns with demon horns…that’s what I see when a bunch of Negroes run around on the field anyways….

      • Rick

        Or with shrunken heads and spears

      The Viking symbol is valid. The Vikings were the ultimate cowards. It takes absolutely no honor to raid and butcher those who can’t fight back. I’m so sick of these savages being made over into decent people. It’s just the same as what liberals have done with non-whites.

  • JackKrak

    “Somali-American”
    If ever there were two words that were never supposed to go together…

    • tetrapod

      I am incapable of speaking that phrase without triggering my gag reflex. One might also ask why our good friends from the Horn don’t celebrate their glorious independence in their own country … known as Somalia … you know … where Somalians live.

      America is now so fragmented along ethnic lines. How will we ever put this genie back in the bottle?

      • RisingReich

        It’s long past ‘putting the lid back on’.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Only a white nationalist revolution can save us now! I only hope it comes before the United States is completely submerged in 3rd world feces.

    • JSS

      That’s why we need to stop identifying as American and begin identifying as simply White men.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Or they can do what the Quebecois do, who refer to themselves as Quebecois pure lane or de souche in order to distinguish themselves from the non-white invaders. Americans should take back the word American and reserve it exclusively for themselves, in defiance of the multicult traitors in Washington. Non-whites masquerading as “Americans” should be called non-white or racial foreigners. Every time a 3rd world immigrant says he’s an American, he should be told: “I don’t care what the government says. You’re not an American. Only white people can be Americans.”

    Hmmm. Do tell us what those magnificent contributions, culture, and values are.

      Just check the crime blotter, it’s all there.

    Somali-American Day, aka SAD.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Somebody complete this for me. Their motto: welfare, jihad, and _______. I’m not sure what fits best.

        Man love Thursdays?

      • tetrapod

        I believe “piracy” fits quite nicely.

      • Doomispixulated

        Jenkem.

        • RisingReich

          Refresh my memory – that’s skittles with Robo – right?

          • So CAL Snowman

            Jenkem is fermented human waste that is huffed from a paper bag.

            Skittles with Robo or codeine cough syrup is known as “lean” or “purple drank”

          • RisingReich

            Wow. Well then – thanks….ewwwww

        Khat: the drug they chew on all the time.

      • me

        Welfare, jihad, and rape.

  • Just one day?

    You mean they don’t already want a whole month of their own?

    • Anglokraut

      Give ’em time.

  • ncpride

    What stupid White person would ‘celebrate’ their displacement, growing crime in their areas, and a flat out nuisance to their state? Eh, we all know the answer to that one…..(sigh)

    • tetrapod

      The same ones that will be hunted down and executed for treason if the American apocalypse ever comes to pass.

    A few years ago, I spent a weekend up in Minneapolis. I got to check out a few restaurants, saw a few sights, ran the marathon. From what I could tell, it seemed like such a nice town. Lots of running/bike paths, nice parks, very few non-whites. At least that’s how I remember it. So why are they trying to throw all of that away?

    • Anglokraut

      Because they are dumb about race. I used to date one of them–he wasn’t dumb about race, but he is very rare in that regard.

    • shmo123

      Remember, a large part of Minnesota’s population consists of the descendents of Scandanavian countries; the same countries that are willingly displacing themselves by African muslims and other third world rabble.

      • wildfirexx

        And do they have Scandinavia day in Minnesota ? just wondering!

  • 32,000 of these creatures? That’s 32,000 too many. As to them having their “day,” that whole thing is nothing but a joke now. Every group that can lie, cheat, or bribe its way into the USA must be honored thusly by the Multicult poobahs. Nobody in his right mind pays any attention to the pandering politicians’ declarations. Watch, as Somali Day erupts into violence.

  • Greg Thomas

    Whites see themselves being displaced by brown third world foreigners (the worst of the
    worst in this case). In turn, the government creates a day to “celebrate” that displacement, in order to keep the peace and hoodwink Americans into believing this displacement is to our benefit. Unbelievable.

  • Extropico

    The values that encouraged Somalis to flee Africa are certain to be celebrated in Amurkistan, particularly when the federal government pays money to Minnesotans to eradicate the White majority.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    And watch the Somalis recreate their failed 3rd world society on Murrican soil. These multicultural nutjobs actually believe that America is a magical land where we can endlessly dump 3rd world immigrants from all four corners of the globe and still end up with a stable, functioning and economically prosperous western society. After all, white people are sitting on a pile of wealth that has to be shared with the world’s huddled brown masses. It’s not like whites had to create this wealth from scratch or anything like that. America was already a land of milk and honey when whites got here.

    • Ron Cheaters

      I wish that Bono character would put his money where his mouth is.

    • me

      Yeah, the United States just magically appeared out of nowhere, right? ANY race could have built this country, right? That’s what the fairy tale says…The TRUTH is that there was a mass of land that took the inventiveness, intelligence, bravery, and determination of the White man to shape into the most beautiful, just, powerful, free, beneficent, and prosperous nation in the history of the world. Now, the non-goys, the globalists/socialists, the self-loathing Whites, the Mammon-worshipers, the Satanic brotherhood, and the mass of unwashed Brown and Black freeloaders have come to end it all. And just like legendary Atlantis, the United States will be remembered as a utopia that existed only in man’s imagination….

      We saw Somali families in Burlington Vermont 2 yrs. ago. My jaw hung slack when I spotted this unexpected infestation. Nothing could have looked more out-of-place than these people. And they had tons of kids running around and were dressed in full Muslim regalia. My dad’s family is from New Hampshire. We love New England–and the thing we love about it the most is its whiteness. Soon we won’t love it anymore.

    There is no nation in Europe which does not prosper due to Somali immigrants. In the Netherlands, only 49% of Somali immigrants are on welfare according to a recent report from the central bureau of statistics. Statistics in Sweden are comparable. I’m sure they are everywhere else.

    • Whitetrashgang

      That’s interesting because half of blacks and illegal aliens are on welfare too. WT needs a second job for sure.

  • So CAL Snowman

    They are here to do the pirating on the great lakes that Americans are too lazy to do. Ever heard of the Edmund Fitzgerald? They say it sunk in a great storm. In reality it was Somali pirates.

  • MekongDelta69

    Will a city in Somalia create an American-American day?
    /sarc

  • Luca

    So, on July 1st in the Minneapolis area, Walmart will have a sale on monkey meat, cow urine, shrunken heads, elephant penis, rhino horn and lion’s liver. Be sure to stock up for the holidays.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Lets roll out the cow-shit carpeting so they can feel right at home.

  • Mrfinoni

    Since when is crime a contribution?

  • rasher223

    That’s it??

    32,000 out of 3.4 million and they’re given a holiday?

    Srsly?

    • wildfirexx

      I’m sure it’s to make them feel welcome so as they can promote their own culture,…along with free welfare, free education, ant-white affirmative action programs, liberal propaganda, Gay marriages, and more…indicating what a great diversity cesspool country America has become! Friendly White Genocide without borders!

  • clemensb

    “Elders”? So now the direction of a great Midwestern American city with a history of railroads and milling and Mississippi River commerce is being steered by Somali “Elders?”
    Forgive me for not taking the Somali “Elders” seriously. How many Minneapolis sons and daughters died in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the recent wars to bring us to the point where East African “Elders” have influence over what this city values?

    • MikeofAges

      Ain’t I an elder? They say an elder speaks with a wisdom as old as his race and as old a life itself. With a voice as “ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins”.

      Ain’t I an elder? And if I ain’t, what malignant power stole my voice and fought so hard to make me into the world’s fool, the only one who cannot speak with a voice as “ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins” and be heard?

  • evilsandmich

    That’s the day the Somali republic

    That’s a generous characterization to say the least. If it’s all that great why aren’t they back there?

    • Sloppo

      Agreed. If the day Somalia was created is worth celebrating, it must be a wonderful place and those Somalis should all go back to it.

  • Sloppo

    Gentile-whites are the only ethnic group delusional enough to think they have a “moral” obligation to promote, finance, and “celebrate” their own ethnic replacement/destruction.

  • There is no such thing as a “Somali-American”.
