Greeley, CO Round 2 in the Ramadan battle? What is this all about?

Yesterday I directed readers to this excellent and extremely informative article in the Greeley Tribune that basically suggests a new round of protests is likely at meatpacking plants as the Muslim Ramadan holiday approaches.   Read my post yesterday and be sure to go back and read the Greeley Tribune as well. 

Since the ruckus began first in Shelbyville, TN with the decision by Tyson’s Food to give up the Labor Day holiday in exchange for Eid-al Fitr, the last day of Ramadan, and through the demonstrations in Greeley, CO and Grand Island, NE it wasn’t so clear to me what this was all about other than a spontaneous demand by mostly Somali “refugees”  for religious accommodation in the workplace.   However, in the last year we have learned a lot and we now know this is much bigger then a few spontaneous demonstrations.  There is nothing spontaneous about this—protests are being orchestrated.

So I don’t get too long, I’ll tell you what is happening in bullet format.

* Progressives (radical leftwing community organizers) are using the Alinsky model of community organizing.  We call it community destabilization and we have a whole category on the topic, here.   The gist of what they are doing is using angry poor immigrants to create chaos to bring about “change.”     And, “change” means socialism and ultimately a world without borders, without sovereign countries.

* The Progressives, including Obama’s friends at the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) and their helpers at CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) have “organized” Somalis in certain cities in the US and trained them to disrupt the workplace by demanding religious accommodation.  I have noted that Somali “community” centers are springing up and Somali “community” organizers are arriving in meatpacking company towns.   The most recent one I mentioned was Ft. Morgan, CO where Somalis are already agitating through their new “organizer” that they don’t have any supervisory positions at the Cargill plant there (did you notice this issue is also being raised in the Greeley Tribune story?).  In addition to special treatment for prayer times, mark my words, this supervisory promotion issue will be popping up everywhere this year.

* You might say the Progressives, the socialists, are using the Somalis, but the Somalis are also using the Progressives.   Baron Bodissey writing last year at Gates of Vienna blog says this is all about probing western countries to see how much Shariah law we will tolerate.   Always on Watch reminds us what the Eid-al Fitr holiday is all about—it’s about conquering people (well, infidels!), about creating a worldwide caliphate.

So as the battles begin later this summer, keep what I have said in mind.  It is planned, it is organized, it is a strategy to change America.   The only thing that makes no sense to me is, do the Progressives think they can control the Islamic fundamentalists in the end?    If they do, they are miscalculating very badly.

White House Amnesty chit-chat happened last Friday

The bipartisan White House strategy meeting to discuss Amnesty and border security that we originally heard was scheduled for June 8th, finally occurred Friday the 26th according to this news report from NumbersUSA.   No consensus was reached but Obama still says he wants Amnesty.    From NumbersUSA:

Pres. Barack Obama took the first step on Thursday towards immigration reform and an amnesty for more than 11 million illegal aliens. Members of the Administration met with 30 Members of Congress from both sides of the issue and both sides of the aisle to get the debate rolling, but Pres. Obama said after the meeting that there was “not by any means consensus across the table.”

Despite the differing opinions on how to handle the illegal alien population, how to secure the borders and how to monitor the flow of future immigrants, Pres. Obama said he’s committed to getting an amnesty through Congress.

See the NumbersUSA story to see who attended.

And, by the way, to one of our Progressive (radical leftwinger) commenters the other day who said I didn’t  know the difference between refugees and other immigrants, as long as the refugee agencies who are contracted to take care of refugees conflate the two and lobby for amnesty, so can I put the two together.   Frankly, it defies logic when federal contractors, like the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), can say that giving amnesty to 11-12 million illegal aliens won’t hurt refugee job prospects.

If you haven’t done so previously, check out the NumbersUSA permanent link at the top of our home page and see what the growth charts tell us about immigrations’ impact on the US over the next few decades.  If you are concerned about overcrowding, the loss of farmland and open space (more schools, more houses, more roads), the impact on air and water resources and a diminished quality of life for your kids and grandkids, Roy Beck’s demonstration is pretty scary.

Question for Progressives visiting RRW:  I’m curious, how do you justify in your minds the obvious impact millions of additional people arriving as immigrants to the US will have on our resources and our environment, since Leftwing policies promote both environmental protection AND more immigration?

Prosecutors get rare conviction in Somali murder case

Apparently regularly stymied by the unwillingness of anyone in the Somali “community” to talk, Minnesota prosecutors managed to get a conviction against a Somali, former refugee,* for murdering another Somali, former refugee, in what is being described as gang and clan related violence.  From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

A 23-year-old Richfield man was found guilty Friday in Hennepin County District Court of what police said was a misdirected revenge killing outside a south Minneapolis mall that is popular with Somali immigrants.

A jury convicted Hassan Mohamed Abdillahi of second-degree murder in the shooting death of 21-year-old Abdishakur Adan Hassan, of Minneapolis, on Sept. 29 at the Village Market Mall.

According to the charges, Abdillahi wanted revenge for the April 2008 shooting death in Minneapolis of his cousin, but because he believed the shooter had fled the country, he killed that man’s friend instead.

Cycle of violence will continue.

It’s a cycle of violence that Hassan’s sister, Deka Hassan, said likely won’t end soon, but the conviction of the man she said murdered her brother in cold blood shows that Somalis and their families will not be intimidated. [Good for this brave woman to stand up to the Somali men!]


The killing was part of what authorities and community leaders called a disturbing string of crimes in the Somali community. Outrage flared again last month when second-degree murder charges against 17-year-old Ramadan Shiekh Osman were dropped. That happened after witnesses recanted their statements about what they saw the night a 20-year-old Augsburg College student Ahmednur Ali was shot and killed. That killing happened seven days before Hassan’s. 


“Witnesses wouldn’t cooperate; witnesses didn’t come forward; witnesses had to be arrested,” Connors said. “And despite being arrested, one witness still would not testify. The witnesses that did testify showed great courage.”

We have written many times about Somali gang violence in cities with large Somali populations—Minneapolis, Seattle and Columbus.   Even Salt Lake City is seeing an increase in Somali gangs.

Note to Lewiston, ME and Ft. Morgan, CO:   You have this to look forward to as your Somali populations grow!

Asylum-seeking boatmen flooding into Australia

This is an update on previous posts (see our Australia category, here) we’ve done on the veritable flood of asylum seeking men from Muslim countries attempting to get into Australia.  For all you commenters who called me an Islamophobe at this post last week, where I said it was a lie to suggest that Islam welcomes the stranger, note all the flow of refugees is always away from Muslim countries and toward westernized countries.  You don’t see hordes of refugees beating on the doors of Saudi Arabia with its state-of-the art border fence, but Australia,  like America and Europe, is where everyone wants to be.  

Saudi Arabia knows there would no longer be a Saudi Arabia if their doors were flung wide open.   Many Americans and Australians know it also (some Europeans get it but it may be too late for them)—open borders will destroy the prosperity of westernized democracies, but unfortunately the powers that be in both Australia and America are working really hard to do just that—-destroy the goose that lays the golden egg.

From the Brisbane Times today:

A BOAT carrying 194 people, the largest number of asylum seekers on a single vessel in eight years, has been intercepted 43 kilometres north-west of Christmas Island.

Australian officials had tracked the small wooden fishing boat, which defence sources said was overcrowded, since Friday after it left Indonesia.

Those on board, almost all men, are understood to be Afghan or Iraqi, and are being processed in immigration detention on Christmas Island. No children were aboard.

You can’t blame it all on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan because note that in 2001 the numbers were even higher and had gone down when the Howard government made it harder to get into Australia.

Arrivals by boat this year are well up on the 161 last year, but still far below the heights of 2001, when 5516 arrived.

Insisting their policies aren’t involved, the liberal Rudd government has been loosening restrictions on refugees and asylees, while claiming the flood is related to an increase in refugees worldwide.

Those who do not support flinging borders wide open, say it is those policies that are encouraging the boatmen and their human traffickers.

The Opposition spokeswoman on immigration, Sharman Stone, said the latest arrival could be directly attributed to the Federal Government’s softer immigration regime.

“This week we have seen another softening,” Dr Stone said, referring to legislation to remove charges levied against people for their time spent in immigration detention. “No wonder we have seen a boat this big.
