    When hearing about rival Somali political factions rioting, one might assume the event occurred in Somalia, where political violence is the norm. But the mayhem in question actually was in Minneapolis, where, increasingly, being Somali is the norm. (Apparently, “Minnesota nice” hasn’t rubbed off.) Per The Post Millennial:A riot erupted in Minnesota during Democrat nominations for Minneapolis City Council on Saturday [May 13], which led to no candidate being chosen in Ward 10 after officials were forced to shut down the event over safety concerns.Somalian supporters of city council candidate Nasri Warsame turned to political violence and reportedly assaulted Minneapolis...

    In a May 11, 2023 article, we explored the axiom that all cultures are created equal -- or, in Pope Francis’s words, “Never again can the Christian community allow itself to be infected by the idea that one culture is superior to others.” Two days later, that claim was put to test right here in the USA, when all bedlam broke lose in Minneapolis. On May 13, 2023: A riot erupted in Minnesota during Democrat nominations for Minneapolis City Council on Saturday, which led to no candidate being chosen in Ward 10 after officials were forced to shut down the...

    The leader of Minnesota’s Democratic Party says he is calling an emergency meeting this week to "ban individuals engaged in violent assaults" from its ranks after a tense confrontation erupted over the weekend at an event to nominate candidates for a Minneapolis City Council seat. The showdown between supporters of Minneapolis Council Member Aisha Chughtai and her challenger, Nasri Warsame, on Saturday has been surrounded by allegations of assault from both campaigns ahead of the November election. Video shows the incident began after a crowd of Chughtai supporters took the stage in preparation for her speech, which caused an uproar...

    An ancient artifact was damaged when a visitor tripped at the Minneapolis Institute of Art last month, according to the StarTribune. The Pillsbury Owl, a 12th- or 13th-century BCE bronze owl-shaped wine vessel, was at the entrance of the museum’s exhibition “Eternal Offerings: Chinese Ritual Bronzes” when the damage occurred on April 9. Shang-dynasty (ca. 1600–1046 BCE) aristocrats would have used the vessel in rituals offerings to honor their ancestors. A museum spokesperson confirmed that the vessel has since been removed from the show for further assessment and conservation. The extent of the damage, as well as how long conservation...

    The Hill ^ | 05/02/2023 | CHEYANNE M. DANIELS -
    The last of four former Minneapolis police officers facing state charges in the death of George Floyd has been convicted of aiding and abetting manslaughter. Tou Thao was convicted for his role in the murder of Floyd, who died on May 25, 2020, when former police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes despite his fading cries of “I can’t breathe.” Floyd’s killing led to worldwide protests, and his last words became a rallying cry in the call for police reform. Chauvin was convicted of murder and manslaughter in April 2021 and later pleaded guilty...

They should feel bad. It was terrible what happened.”

    Anybody fighting City Hall is outgunned and outnumbered. It is just a fact of life. If anything can be said to have deep pockets, it is government–because their pockets include everybody else’s. That’s why it is so important to have independent groups like the Pacific Legal Foundation, which along with a few other nonprofits like the Institute for Justice, can beef up the power of the little guy. They can’t fight every battle, but they can rack up some important victories which make everybody’s lives a bit better. ... I am a big fan of the PLF and what they...

    St. Louis, Mo., Apr 18, 2023 / 15:00 pm The mayor of Minneapolis on Monday signed into law a new ordinance allowing the Islamic call to prayer, or adhan, to be broadcast on loudspeakers from the city’s nearly two dozen mosques five times a day, including at dawn and late evening. The new ordinance is expected to take effect on Friday after passing the city council unanimously and gaining the approval of Mayor Jacob Frey, who likened the call to prayer to the ringing of church bells and the Jewish shofar. The previous ordinance restricted the adhan practice to between...

    Pro-crime policies work. They always work. Minneapolis Police records showed there have been 2,725 auto thefts so far in 2023, compared to 1,306 last year at this time. What could the home of famous drug overdose victim George Floyd be doing right to make that happen? “I bet 14 or 16 years old, came up, had guns, like right into, you know, my stomach, and all I could look at was the gun,” Craig Boettcher said. He was one of the 755 victims attacked in the Twin Cities last year. We know stories like his well. “They said ‘Give us...

    Increasingly during these strange times, we watch foreshadows of past prophecy spread across our nation. I say “strange times,” because things are taking place that are antithetical to all we have embraced as a constitutionally secured republic founded on Judeo-Christian principles. By “shadows of past prophecy,” I’m referring to there being nothing new under the sun, as written by the writer of Ecclesiastes. The clouds of wickedness that plagued generations of antiquity as reported by God’s prophets now are a metastasizing sin-stain shadow of evil spreading across America. Particularly, I believe we can look at Daniel’s time in Babylon and...

    Have you ever married a sibling? Like, say, a Somalian Muslim immigrant, who wears a kerchief over her head to connote deep religious integrity and modesty, marrying her brother? What is that like? I mean, really. Can you imagine the quarrels at home? “You know what I hate most about you?” “What?” “I hate your parents. They are the worst Satanic in-laws a man ever could be stuck with!” “Well, the people you are calling Satanic are your parents, too.” “Don’t you dare speak that way about my parents! I’m talking now about your parents!” “My parents are just watching...

    Government officials are calling for calm ahead of the planned nationwide protests over the Tyre Nichols bodycam footage, which will be released tonight, as the Georgia governor activated 1,000 National Guard troops and Capitol Hill amped up security. Many cities, including Memphis and New York City, are gearing up to protest after the gruesome footage, which has been described as worse than Rodney King, on the Memphis Police Department's YouTube page at 7pm. Police are releasing the footage later a night to allow people to get home beforehand. Nichols, 29, was brutally beaten like a 'human piñata' by five Memphis,...

Drag queen activist Marti Cummings celebrated the invite on Twitter, and though he keeps his account private, the Libs of TikTok account shared Cummings’ status. “To be a non binary drag artist invited to the White House is something I never imagined would happen.

    England’s National Health Service (NHS) banned puberty blockers for minors outside strict clinical trials and advised against social transitions for kids, arguing that most children who think they’re transgender are going through a phase they will outgrow, according to The Telegraph. The NHS is developing plans to restrict cross-sex medical treatments for children due to “scarce and inconclusive evidence to support clinical decision-making,” according to The Telegraph. As England moves to limit transgender medical interventions for children, the Biden administration has been championing child sex changes and publicly criticizing state level efforts to restrict those procedures as harmful to transgender...
