Indeed, were it not for the dhimmi multiculturalists in Minnesota and elsewhere — particularly in Britain — Islamic supremacism would not have advanced nearly as far as it has. An update on this story. “Somalis: We didn’t cause Santa flap,” by Brian Ojanpa for the Mankato Free Press, December 22 (thanks to Joe):
MANKATO — Head Start officials erred in ending Santa Claus visits to St. Peter Head Start classrooms and have unfairly made Somalis into scapegoats on the issue, say two Mankato Somalians who have lived in the community a combined 23 years.
“Why put a fire under Somalis?” Lul Ahmed said. “This is a lovely community where we live together. But we’re being seen as negative, and we don’t want that.”
Then it might be a good idea to cut out the jihad.
Fanah Adam, who has children in the Mankato Head Start program, said respect for differing cultures and customs is a two-way street — a concept that was sullied by prohibiting a Santa appearance because some families in the class reportedly objected to it.
“Santa and the families (were) not the decision-makers; Head Start administrators are who sent Santa away,” he said.
Ahmed and Adam fear that the virulent anti-Somali reactions on website comment pages and forums to published reports of the Santa ouster could be breeding grounds for hate crimes.
Earlier this year Dennis Jackson of St. Peter, who has played Santa for St. Peter Head Start classes the past four years, was told by program officials that his appearance this year would be against some people’s wishes.
He said he was given no specifics.
Chris Marben, who coordinates regional Head Start programs through Mankato-based Minnesota Valley Action Council, said this:
“We have Somali families in the program. We’re respecting the wishes of the families.”
She did not say how many objected to Santa’s appearance, nor if Somali families specifically objected.
Head Start officials have made no comments on the matter since then, but Ahmed and Adam think they need to do so.
“They need to make an apology,” Ahmed said. “They need to correct this mess.”…
I am sure they will race to oblige the demand for an apology.
