A US Congresswoman who purports to represent Minnesota explains that she does not represent Minnesotans or even her fellow US citizens, but rather Somalians first, Muslims second.
We are an organized society, brothers and sisters, people of the same blood. People who know they are Somalians first, Muslims second, who protect one another come to each other’s aid and to the aid of other Muslims too. Couple of days ago, we heard some people who call themselves Somalis or claim to be Somalis have signed an MoU [Memorandum of Agreement] with Ethiopia on access to the sea.
Many Somalians have personally called me to encourage me to speak to the U.S. government and help Somalia. They wanted to know what the U.S. government could do for Somalia to ensure the MoU never turns into a full bilateral agreement. My answer to Somalians was that the U.S. government will only do what Somalians in the U.S. tell them to do. They will do what we want and nothing else. They must follow our orders and that is how we will safeguard the interest of Somalia. We Somalians must have that confidence in ourselves that we call for the shots in the U.S.
We live in the U.S., pay taxes in the U.S., and have a real voice. The U.S. is a country where one of your daughters is in Congress to represent your interests.
For as long as I am in the U.S. Congress, Somalia will never be in danger, its waters will not be stolen by Ethiopia or others. The U.S. would not dare to support anyone against Somalia to steal our land or oceans. Sleep in comfort, knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system. The woman you sent to Congress is working day and night to protect your interests. She knows your plight and that of Somalia. I am as concerned about Somalia as you guys are. Together we will protect the interests of Somalia.
And it’s not just the Somalis (US Paper edition) that put their own people first. The same is true of every single wave of hyphenated-American immigrants. The same is true of every single wave of human migration everywhere throughout the course of history, all of whom have histories and beliefs and objectives and traditions that are distinctly different than the American posterity whose rights the Constitution was written to protect.
The only reason the USA is on the verge of war with Iran, is funding a losing proxy war with Russia, and is even banning college protests is because of Jewish immigrants who live in the US, pay taxes in the US, and have a real voice. They have a voice and that’s what they’re choosing to do with it, the American national interest be damned. This is tragic, but should never have been a surprise to anyone; it certainly would not have surprised the greatest political mind of the 20th Century, Lee Kuan Yew.
