Skip to comments.Somalis in America Sympathize with Somali Pirates, Not Americans

Clearly this is a problem that only can be solved with more Somali settlers moving out of the Midwest and into coastal states. And then Americans can finally experience Somali piracy without going anywhere near Africa.These people are not Americans. They have no interest in being Americans. Somalis living in Knoxville and across the country are anxious about the new negativity being circulated around the world by the actions of a few. The forecast isnt getting any easier.
No other groups gets this treatment. This backlash whining in front of every story and after every crime. Now talking about Somali piracy, like talking about Muslim terrorism, becomes a hate crime that makes the poor dears feel unwelcome.
Hollywood is rolling out a brand new blockbuster movie Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks that depicts the Maersk Alabama hijacking.
So lets hear the response from patriotic Somali-Americans.
The reason these guys are becoming pirates is because their livelihood is fishing, but international companies come and fish in Somalias (territorial) waters illegally because the (Somali) government cant control it, Sudi Issak, 22, said in an interview last week.
And other companies also come and dump tons of chemicals and waste off Somalias coastline. So what are these people supposed to do? Somalia is war torn and other companies steal hundreds of millions of dollars of fish every year. I think its shady that these issues are never really addressed. Its not like these people just wake up one day and say, Oh, Im going to be a pirate today.
Her sister, Kowsar, 19, added: And what can they do about it? Half of them are like my age 17, 18, 19. The negative depiction of Somalis or African-indigenous people in general

We need immigration reform, but not the kind Rubio talks about.
We need more Somali immigrants like Sudi and Cowsore to fill up all the empty cracks in our nation.
What a stupid country America has become.
It would probably be a good idea for Chancellor Merkel to declare war on America. They’d win it in about a week.
Hell, we have been ELECTING people who hate us.
Thanks to Ted "Swimmer" Kennedy, and the DemoRat party.
I would assume they also are receving a free college educations at the University of Tennessee ,it takes a lot of money to attend this college and yet they remain ungreatful.
Always whining about being somebody else’s fault. Just like the liberals who want them here.
Thank JFK and his immigration bill of 1965, that was passed as a memorial to him, for this.
It’s absolutely true though. The Japanese and others have illegally fishing in Somali waters. Also shipping companies have been using their beaches as latrines. If foreigners were doing that to US beaches how would you feel?
The mindless PC apostles of unimited cultural “diversity” and open borders are ignorant of the lessons of the Balkans and are lacking the commonsense instinct of national survival.
Who doesn’t hate us these days? The weaker we get as a nation and as a people, the more the animals of the world will prey on us.
But Somalis help the economy by living off welfare Americans borrow from China. Don’t you understand Obamanomics?
Seems if they’re here, they’re neglecting their beloved homeland.
Somalis are, by and large, animals.
Back when I was in elementary school, we were taught that the US was great and would remain so because we were self-sufficient, our borders were secure from invasion, and people were self-reliant and confident that if we did things right, we'd be secure, have jobs, and a decent life. We had endless opportunities but it was up to us to do things right.
How have any changes since the early 1960s made our lives better? In 50 years, we've gone from those promises to where we are now. It's pretty disgusting.
In a previous life I had a rather stressful job. My main function was to keep African Embassy posts filled. Most places require some arm-twisting to fill, and some African posts have SOMETHING to offers. Mogadishu was the hardest. The Embassy Post Report emphasized the beauty of Somalia’s beaches. It failed to mention that an abattoir nearby dumped all of its offal via a pipeline into the waters just off of Mogs. The offal attracted schools of sharks; many Somalis every year get eaten by them. We had to dangle some other benefits, usually monetary, to get them to agree to a two-year tour of duty.
They ARE trashing our country where they live. If I were in charge, starting tomorrow, all of Detroit would be deported to Somalia. Either pack up, get on the ship, or die. That would be everyone in Detroit, the bad ones and the few good ones who chose to stay there are all guilty for even honoring the place by living there.
Oh, and the Somalis would follow soon after. Every one of them. Pack up, get on the ship, or die. Your choice.
Big surprise there. Kick them the hell out.
We have plenty of Somalis in New England, too. Google Lewiston, Maine.
Allah AkbAAAARRRRRR! <— Somali pirate
The left wingers import them, so they can help destroy American culture.
Maybe they would garner more sympathy if they dressed like old pirates!
There is a restaurant in Astoria, Oregon, that has a ‘captured’ Japanese fish finder in the lobby (quickly dumped off the Columbia River when the Coast Guard moved in on them for illegally fishing). The Japanese fishing fleets go where the fishing exists and they really, REALLY like salmon.
As for using Somali beaches as a latrine, there are many vessels out on the high seas that dump raw sewage. Since it happens to our coastline, maybe we should be incensed, too. However that is a lousey reason for piracy.
So illegal fishing and dumping raw sewage is an international problem. Maybe Americans should become pirates; is that what you’re suggesting?
Come on - you’re no bleeding liberal heart! Stop making excuses for the Somalis.
Remind me again why there are any Somalis in MY country??!!
