MSM ecstatic over young Somali woman newly elected in Maine
« on: November 07, 2019, 06:47:23 PM »
Of all the local election victories decided in Tuesday’s vote, a Muslim Somali immigrant named Safiyah Khalid elected to a local office in Maine’s second largest city has gotten the royal treatment from the MSM. It reminds me of the primary victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in June 2018, which I wrote about here.  AOC was largely pooh-pooed at the time but she has gone on to quickly become the most influential politician in the country.
Khalid, 23, a covered Muslim Somali immigrant who came to the U.S. at age seven, was elected to a spot on the Lewiston, Maine city council in a race that was tailor made for immediate, major national exposure. As the AP reported:
The second-largest city in Maine, home to thousands of African newcomers, has elected a Somali American to its city council following a campaign that was marred by racists [sic] attacks and threats fueled by social media.

Safiya Khalid, 23, soundly defeated a fellow Democrat on Tuesday for a seat on the Lewiston City Council.

Shrugging off attacks on her skin color and faith, Khalid declared that “community organizers beat internet trolls.”


Can national prominence and elevation to higher office for Khalid be far behind?
On Wednesday, flush with her victory, Khalid made the rounds of friendly cable news channels including a live Q&A with CNN’s Don Lemon, instantly expanding her national profile as a leftist Democrat up-and-comer.
 
 
The gushing AP story about Khalid’s victory, typical of hundreds of stories in the MSM, continued:
Quote
Maine is the nation’s whitest state, but it is home to a growing population of Africans who’ve fled their homeland.
First- and second-generation candidates from four African countries — Somalia, Congo, Ghana and Nigeria — won seats on city councils and school committees across the state, continuing an established trend, said Mufalo Chitam, executive director of the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition.
This outcome is the result of the demographic transformation of the U.S. According to Wikipedia, the 2010 Census noted 5,000 Somali refugees were living in Lewiston, a city of only 30,000. The number of Somalis and other Africans who have made Lewiston their home since then has increased dramatically.
Articles in local Maine media have reported on tensions, include a major increase in crime, due to this influx of thousands of predominantly Muslims from Africa. Typical is this hyper PC article from June 2018, “Anti-immigrant sentiments run high after Knox Street brawl kills Lewiston man,” published in  the Lewiston Journal:
Quote
Thousands of Somali immigrants have moved into Lewiston. While Somali families remain the largest immigrant population in the city, families from other countries have joined them in recent years, including people from Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Sudan, among others.
“I’m hearing 30 or more nationalities now that live in the community,” said Phil Nadeau, who retired last year after 18 years in city administration.
Newly elected Lewiston council member Khalid made much out of alleged social media racist attacks on her. For example, the Washington Post, in an article celebrating her victory, noted:
Quote
With just a week to go before the election, Safiya Khalid was in tears. She had spent the past six months knocking on hundreds of doors in Lewiston, Maine, the city where she arrived as a refugee more than a decade earlier, and where she hoped to be the first Somali immigrant to win a seat on the city council. Suddenly, online trolls from as far away as Alabama and Mississippi were hurling vile abuse at her, telling her that Muslims had no place in American government and she should go back to where she came from.
“I just couldn’t take it,” Khalid told The Washington Post on Tuesday night. “I was crying so bad. My eyes were completely red.”

A social media photo of a teenaged Khalid giving the finger was ignored by voters.
Quote
“A teenager pointing a middle finger is not a big scandal,” [said] Abdifatah Afrah, of Lewiston. “That’s nothing compared to what we see in the news with politicians every day.”
Things are changing fast in the U.S.A. As Pat Buchanan (in 2011 in this case) and others warned us years ago, “Demography is destiny.”
Khalid wasn’t the only Muslim to claim electoral success on Tuesday. After the election, CAIR crowed:
Quote
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said today it has counted 26 Muslims who won elections in local and statewide races across America on Tuesday.
“These electoral victories clearly indicate that American Muslims are stepping up and showing their commitment to public service,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “We congratulate these Muslim trailblazers who are creating a more inclusive democracy for everyone.”

A teenager giving the middle finger is a scandal? Muslims being elected means the death of America, a nation of immigrants and the free?

Not me.

More of a concern is that she was endorsed by the "People for the American Way" and is an outspoken leftist.

Yep it's not what she looks like it's what she stands for.
And it won't be good if she and handlers get their way.

Either we change where foreign born can't hold elected office or we will cease to be America as we once knew it.

I just got back from Sweden and can't figure out why Governments (national, local, etc.) are choosing to destroy their way of life. 

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/5195/sweden-rape


Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.

Significantly, the report does not touch on the background of the rapists. One should, however, keep in mind that in statistics, second-generation immigrants are counted as Swedes.

In an astounding number of cases, the Swedish courts have demonstrated sympathy for the rapists, and have acquitted suspects who have claimed that the girl wanted to have sex with six, seven or eight men.

The internet radio station Granskning Sverige called the mainstream newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen to ask why they had described the perpetrators as "Swedish men" when they actually were Somalis without Swedish citizenship. They were hugely offended when asked if they felt any responsibility to warn Swedish women to stay away from certain men. One journalist asked why that should be their responsibility.

Another point of view, no doubt to be discounted here.

I see no reliable information to support the notion that rapes have increased by nearly 1500% in Sweden (and you'd need to state a time period for that to be meaningful).

What percentage increase would you support, say over the last 30 years?

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/01924036.2017.1295395

Vuorela, M. (2018). The historical criminal statistics of Finland 1842–2015–a systematic comparison to Sweden. International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice, 42(2-3), 95-117.

The Finnish criminal justice system is more involved in the investigation of rapes than Swedish. In total, 13% of the reported rape cases in Finland lead to a conviction, while Swedish courts only give sentence in 3% of the reported cases.

Rape emerged as a core crime relatively late. During the nineteenth century, only 1–10 persons were convicted of rape every year in both Finland and Sweden. It was not until after the Second World War that recorded rape criminality began slowly increasing. In Sweden, the rape crime rates have increased steadily since the 1950s with a major spike in the 1990s and a dramatic increase in the early twenty-first century. In Finland, the steadily increasing crime trend has prevailed since the late 1940s to the present. According to the court conviction statistics, the rape conviction rate in Finland is one and a half times higher than in Sweden. However, the number of rape offences reported to the police is significantly higher in Sweden (Figure 8).
