SCHIFF’S IMPEACHMENT THEATER SENDS IN THE CLOWNS
Of all the local election victories decided on November 5th, 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 victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in June 2018. 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 the 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 attacks and threats fueled by social media. Safiyah Khalid, 23, soundly defeated a fellow Democrat an Tuesday for a seat on the Lewiston City Council. Shrugging off attacks on her skin and faith, Kihlid declared that “community organizers beat internet trolls.” The attacks didn’t seem to faze voters. Khalid won with nearly 70% of the vote to make history in the former mill city. 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-generations 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.
Can national prominence and elevation to higher office for Khalid be far behind?
On Wednesday following the election, 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. 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.
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: 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 Americans 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.”

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
What is happening in Maine and all across our country is a result of eight years of Barack Obama. He open the flood gates to let all these Muslims into our country. They do not want to assimilate into our culture, but to follow the teachings of the prophet Mohammed as spelled out in the Koran. They despise the Constitution. One only has to look as far as Europe to see what America will become if this trend continues.
