Sharia law is the antithesis of everything the American legal system stands for. Unfortunately, thanks to mass migration from Muslim-majority nations, some American states are already dealing with the specter of “creeping Sharia.”
During an interview, Minnesota Republican Michelle Bachmann told WND that she no longer recognizes her adopted home state. The Congresswoman blamed this on Minnesota’s large Somali Muslim population and the growing rates of female genital mutilation (FGM) and terrorism.
Historically speaking, Minnesota is long known as the home of large populations of American citizens of German, Scandinavian, and Finnish extraction.
Indeed, Minnesota has the highest population of Scandinavian-Americans in the country, with Swedish-, Norwegian-, and Danish-Americans making up 32 percent of the state’s overall population, according to US Census.
These numbers cannot hold, however.
On the political front, these immigrants have helped Minnesota to become one of the more solidly “blue” (i.e. Democratic) states in the country.
More disturbing is the fact that Minneapolis, which is home to hundreds of thousands of Somali immigrants and Somali-Americans, has become a hotbed of jihadist terrorism. The problem first came to light in 2007, when more than twenty Somalis from Minneapolis traveled to Somalia in order to fight for al-Shabaab.
The Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota has been at the center of Minneapolis’s infamous export, and some experts believe that the mosque is still producing ISIS terrorists.
As for Bachmann’s other complaint — the rise of FGM among Minnesota’s Muslim community–the issue has drawn enough attention that the state proposed a bill to curb its practice. It passed in the Minnesota Legislature with near unanimous support.
Despite the obviously barbaric nature of the practice, the bill drew widespread criticism from Islamists and white liberals.
All of this lawmaking could be a little too late. Minnesota is currently home to the nation’s largest Somali population. This demographic has, so far, proven resistant to assimilation. Attempts to further integrate Somali Muslims in American life have backfired.
Somali-Americans in Minnesota seem more comfortable decrying “racism” and “Islamophobia” than actually working towards stopping the terrorism problem within their own community, reported Washington Post.
Look for tensions in Minneapolis to rise soon given the ongoing investigation of Officer Mohamed Noor, who is accused of killing Justine Damond, and the rising number of deportation raids conducted by President Trump’s administration.
