Trying to figure out the motive behind the ridiculous bragging of progressive politicians is always challenging. For instance what the Minneapolis mayor recently did when she gave her “Annual State of the City” address in a Muslim Mosque.
Instead of in a city building, just so she can get more attention. On top of everything, rather than discussing issues regarding the city, she used her time to trash the President and his agenda in protecting the nation from radical Islamic extremists.
Mayor Betsy Hodges apparently had no regard for the problematic issue within the Constitution, about the need to separate the state from the church, when she chose to give an officially sanctioned address in a religious building.
In addition to this she didn’t waste any time to attack President Donald Trump saying that “his agenda of oppression, and regression and suppression has no place in Minneapolis.”
But the mayor evidently took her the narrative even further when she particularly attacked anyone who would talk against the “Shariah Law.”
She even reportedly created a “city website: together with a “hotline” for citizens to observe the speech of persons who get in contact with them and who speak out against the “Shariah Law”
It looks like this preference for the Islamic culture, has made her interfere with the First Amendment right of free speech, even if that speech is rude or unpleasant for some.
As local media have reported :“the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.”
The Department of Civil Rights of the city points out on their website that hate crimes are imposed only on particular “protected classes”.
The Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights Director, Velma Korbel wrote this disturbing overview on the website that should make any normal person who lives there very concerned:
“Since the general election, many of us have experienced, witnessed firsthand or heard of actions of: racism, xenophobia, sexism and bigotry directed at people here and in cities across the United States, in no uncertain terms, hate-motivated speech and actions have no place in Minneapolis nor will they be tolerated.”
