Here is a quick rundown of what is happening in Michigan as a microcosm of what leftists expect for the country…the Islamic takeover through resettlement, elections, and education.
September 15, 2015 “Massive Crowd Chants ‘God Bless America’ after Michigan Mosque Voted Down”:
“After weeks of contentious debate, the planning commission of Sterling Heights voted 9-0 Thursday night to reject building a mosque on 15 Mile between Ryan and Mound roads.
City Planner Donald Mende said the mosque was too tall for the location and not suited for the residential area. Many residents agreed with him, speaking out before the vote.
But Jaafar Chehab, a board member of the proposed American Islamic Community Center, said before the vote: “Not allowing this mosque to be built is a violation of my Constitutional rights…Denying me a house of worship in the place I live is unacceptable. We have the right to build a mosque.”
November 5, 2015: “Michigan City Becomes First to Elect Majority Muslim City Council”:
“On Tuesday, the town of Hamtramck, Michigan, became what many believe is the first city to elect a majority Muslim city council, Click on Detroit said. After the election, four of the six members of the council are Muslim.”
November 11, 2015: “New Muslim Majority City Council Member in Michigan Issues Warning”:
“A cell phone video, taken moments after Muslims received the word that they took over the city council, has surfaced of one of the organizers of the Muslim city council effort saying, “Today we show the Polish and everybody else…” The town has a large but shrinking Polish community. How ugly. How fast. They won — are they incapable of being gracious? Don’t answer that. The message is clear: non-Muslims move or else.”
November 22, 2105: “Michigan: Muslims Behind 10-Block Islamic Enclave for Syrian ‘Refugees’”:
“US Muslim Brotherhood Coalition Meets White House Officials, Recommends More Muslim “Refugees.” It’s not without coincidence that at least one of the Muslims involved in building an Islamic enclave specifically for Syrian Muslim “refugees” in Pontiac, Michigan is related to the terror-linked Muslim group that urged the White House to import more Muslim refugees. Evidence suggests they’ve been planning – possibly coordinating with the State Dept. – for quite some time.”
With the Muslim takeover of Michigan, leftists work in the education system to undermine parental authority while pushing the transgender agenda, which is odd considering how Islam treats transgenderism.
March 21, 2016: “Michigan Schools To Let Students Choose Gender, Name and Bathroom”:
“Michigan’s State Board of Education has drafted a guidance that would push the state’s schools to allow all students, regardless of parental or doctoral input, to choose their gender, name, pronouns, and bathrooms.
Spearheaded by board president John C. Austin and signed by state superintendent Brian Whiston, the guidance informs Michigan public schools that only the students themselves–i.e. not their parents or doctors–can determine what their individual gender identities are.”
“The suggested state transgender policy was discussed by the state board March 8, but board members did not send a copy of the memorandum to state lawmakers, as is typically the case.
‘We heard from countless parents who are upset at being deliberately cut out of their children’s education, and are livid at a government body that is trying to cut them out under the cover of night,’ Cotter said. ‘The word is out now on their divisive plan, and many parents are scrambling to have their voices heard.’
Since more parents became aware of the proposed policy, thousands of comments have poured into a state website, and most seem to be in opposition.”
Back to the Muslim takeover of the Michigan….
“On Sunday, Fox17 reported that a group claiming to be a cyber army for ISIS took credit for hacking and defacing the website for the Lamont Christian Reformed Church in Lamont, Michigan.”
“Last week, members of the ASU plastered flyers all over the school to promote their first meeting, violating a rule that limits one flyer per organization on the school’s bulletin boards. ASU flyers were also inserted into every locker during after school hours.
The following morning, teachers and students were agitated that the group had disregarded the school’s rules and began tearing the flyers down. On Friday, May 27, Crestwood High School Principal John Tafelski prohibited ASU President Mohamed Hojaj, a senior, from entering the school as a punishment for violating the rules. Seniors had already finished their school year; Hojaj was told not to return until graduation day.
In a stand of solidarity with Hojaj, ASU members held their first meeting outside of the school. A video uploaded to Facebook shows dozens of students sitting outside of the high school as Hojaj declared the administration was targeting the group because they were ‘Arab’.”
“Dan Guernsey, the Cardinal Newman Society’s director of K–12 programs, says Common Core fails to provide a well-rounded education.
‘Catholic schools can use parts of the Common Core, but the Common Core in and of itself is insufficient to guide education in Catholic schools,’ Guernsey said. ‘The Common Core does college/career prep. We adopt this broader approach and vision toward education, and parents will run to that. Parents will pay, if they can afford it, to get an uncommon education and have their children’s depth of thought, compassion, humanity, and vision of man articulated. In the Common Core, we’ve lost this vision of humanity’.”
August 29, 2016 “Bill Clinton: Rebuild Detroit with Syrian Refugees”:
“In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.
‘The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,’ Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis. ‘Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.’
It is unclear from the video why Clinton seems to think it would be better to fill these Detroit jobs with imported foreign migrants rather than unemployed Americans already living there, who could perhaps benefit from good-paying jobs.”
“According to this FY 2017 abstract submitted to the Department of State by Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which operates in Michigan as Samaritans, the resettlement agency plans to bring 100 Iraqi and Syrian refugees to Flint Michigan in the twelve month fiscal year that begins in less than three weeks. The document was obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
With all the financial and public health problems the city of Flint, Michigan faces, critics are wondering if it makes any sense to force 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees upon the citizens of Flint, Michigan.”
Of course the influx of illegals and the elections of Muslims to local seats was not enough to override the native population in the 2016 Presidential election where, to the horror of Hillary Clinton’s camp, Michigan went to Trump. Unable to cope with the reality, democrats demanded recounts which worked against them as Hillary LOST votes. Michigan was one recount state where the violent left reared its ugly head in defiance over not just the vote but the voter ID bill which followed.
“It seems that liberals across the country have decided the law doesn’t apply to them and are now threatening members of the Electoral College in an attempted coup d’etat intended to install Democrat Hillary Clinton as president. On Thursday, the Detroit News reported that electors in Michigan are now receiving death threats from pro-Hillary liberals.”
December 8, 2016 “Michigan House Approves Strict New Voter ID Bill Over Dem Objections”:
“This is a significant change from current state law, which allows registered voters to vote on Election Day without IDs as long as they sign an affidavit affirming their identity under threat of perjury. The Detroit News reported that some 18,388 state residents took advantage of that option in the Nov. 8 election, many of them in heavily Democratic Wayne County, where majority-black Detroit is the county seat. Donald Trump’s margin of victory over Hillary Clinton in the Great Lake State was 10,704 votes.”
Nevertheless, democrats “persist”…
“For his part, Sayed Hassan Qazwini said Muslims are not against freedom of speech and that people should be free to preach their religion. [Actually, Qazwini has called on U.S. law enforcement to enforce sharia laws against free speech in America.]”
April 4, 2017 “Meet ‘Next Obama’ Groomed to Make Political History”:
“The Democratic Party may have found its next Barack Obama. His name is Dr. Abdul el-Sayed, he’s a 32-year-old medical doctor and he recently launched his campaign for governor of Michigan, the election for which is in November 2018. If he wins he would be America’s first Muslim governor.
He speaks articulately, without an accent, inserts humor into his speeches at seemingly just the right moments, and he has the full backing of America’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood-linked network of Islamic organizations.
In an interview with Al Jazeera, El-Sayed said Michigan voters are having “buyer’s remorse,” and that President Trump’s decisions “are at odds with deeply held American values, and distractions from real issues.”
“Lansing is a diverse community, rich with history and culture. It’s what makes our city a welcoming destination to live, work and thrive,” the business groups’ letter says. ‘Recent actions of City Council, whether intended or not, have placed an unnecessary target on the City of Lansing while jeopardizing millions of dollars in federal funding that impacts the city budget.’
‘The term ‘sanctuary’ in the resolution has become very problematic and distracting — so distracting in my opinion that’s it’s taken away from the intent of our resolution, which is to protect individuals,’ said Councilwoman Judi Brown Clarke. ‘It’s basically a ‘don’t ask’ policy, which was outlined by the mayor’s executive order and what we had in our policy complements that’.”
“The legislation, which now goes to the state House of Representatives, was spurred by the case of an emergency room physician charged last month under federal law with performing genital mutilation on two 7-year-old girls at a suburban Detroit medical clinic…State Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Rick Jones, a sponsor of the legislation, cited recent expert testimony before his panel describing Michigan as a “hotspot” for genital mutilation due to its large community of immigrants from countries where such surgery is still routinely performed.”
“As refugees continue pouring into Michigan, there have been several high-profile incidents involving Muslims in the state. Cases of assault, female genital mutilation, and anti-free speech rhetoric have hit the pages of Michigan newspapers. Meanwhile, liberals are working to elect the country’s first Muslim governor.”
“The Islamization of Hamtramck and Dearborn continues apace. This should be a warning to all of us.”
“A Michigan-based Islamic preacher’s YouTube account may have helped radicalize one of Saturday’s London attackers, a friend of the attacker told BBCNews Asia.
The preacher, Ahmad Musa Jibril, is well known on youtube for preaching sermons that appear to lionize Islamic terrorists fighting in Syria. The friend of the attacker was so concerned by his obsession with the preacher’s sermons, it prompted him to notify the anti-terror police. The attacker and two accomplices killed seven and injured dozens more after plowing a car into a crowd and stabbing passersby before police could gun them down.”
Pay attention, Michigan, before it’s too late…although it might already be.
