Just hours after little 8-year-old defenseless innocent little girls in Manchester were picking fellow concert goers body parts from their hair. The mayor of a major United States city decided to do what all jihad loving scummy US politicians do. Attack President Donald Trump.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges gave a typical “State of the City” speech Tuesday night, just hours after the Manchester attack. In of all places, a mosque in north Minneapolis. Covering all the typical BS most politicians want to sell their constituents. She covered topics from the building a new mall, to affordable housing and jobs. And lastly but not least, she had to take her swipes at President Trump and his fight to protect us from the evils of Islam.
“Minneapolis, our shell is cracked. And from that will come the full flower of our potential, whatever we are destined to be,” Hodges said. “To some, who can only see this moment, it may indeed look like complete destruction. In reality, it is transformation.”
In the mayoral campaign, Hodges faces several competitors, including DFL state Rep. Ray Dehn, Nekima Levy-Pounds, Council Member Jacob Frey, Tom Hoch and Aswar Rahman.
She made a point of giving the annual speech at Masjid An-Nur (Mosque of the Light) at 1729 Lyndale Av. N., in an effort to reassure the city’s Muslim community that she and the city stand with them despite the antagonism of Muslims by the Trump administration.
Unlike past State of the City speeches, Hodges’ address wasn’t an official City Council meeting, after officials determined it would be best to avoid First Amendment concerns over holding city proceedings at a place of worship. Still, seven of 13 council members attended the speech, along with about 125 others who removed their shoes before entering the place of worship.
Standing on a podium in white ankle socks, Hodges spoke for 45 minutes, ticking off initiatives and accomplishments.
“The state of our city is strong. We are growing,” she said. “We are increasingly known for what is great about us and for the strong, creative ways we are tackling our biggest challenges.”
Each of the past five years, more than $1 billion in construction has been permitted in the city, and “the cranes are still rising.” The city has added about 5,300 private sector jobs each of the past three years, according to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.
On Nicollet Mall, which is still under construction, Hodges said that while patience is running thin, “the finish line is actually in sight” for a transformation that “will be good for all of us.”
Speaking less than a mile from the spot where a man was shot to death in a car on West Broadway the night before, Hodges spoke at length on public safety.
“Gun violence in any and all parts of our city must end, and can end,” Hodges said, but building trust between police and residents is of central importance to her.
She said all officers responding to 911 calls are now wearing body cameras. Residents along West Broadway and in Little Earth are designing public safety strategies for themselves with the help of $500,000 in city funding, a project Hodges cited as “a daring, first-of-its-kind effort” to build trust.
“We can only have true public safety with public trust,” she said.
Hodges repeated her commitment to resist Trump and stand in the way of his “attack and unfairly targeted policy” against Muslims.
“When Donald Trump comes after any part of our community, he’ll find 419,000 Minneapolitans and me standing squarely in his way,” she said. “That’s the kind of wall I can support.”
The mayor called for land-use policies that encourage density in order to maintain housing affordability, asked the city to join the global battle against climate change, lauded the city’s “civically engaged, forward-thinking corporate leadership,” and said it’s important for the city to help ensure businesses have the workforce they need.
“To be more than just a great city, to be a new city: shining as a beacon brightly enough to show our nation and the world that when we come together as a people, in government and in community, it is possible to be transformed,” she said.
Dehn, one of Hodges’ chief challengers in November’s city elections and a Northsider himself, said he was glad Hodges delivered her speech from Masjid An-Nur. But he said she was “justifying change as progress,” and needs to listen better and change course.
“We need to acknowledge that many of our approaches are wrong,” Dehn said. “When the people most harmed by systemic inequity are opposed to the created solutions, we need a better, more inclusive approach that invites communities affected and co-creates remedies.”
Now, this is truly maddening. This left wing hack politician from the Islamic Cesspool that is Minneapolis goes after gun violence in her speech but not a word against Bombs or beheadings. And interestingly enough she also neglects to mention the epidemic that Minnesota is currently going through with all those Muslim doctors Illegally performing genital mutilation on little girls.
Even worse, she goes as far as attacking President Donald Trump by actually saying, “When Donald Trump comes after any part of our community, he’ll find 419,000 Minneapolitans and me standing squarely in his way, That’s the kind of wall I can support.”
Are these leftist politicians really this damn stupid and misinformed? Or are they getting paid by someone to end the United States of America as we know it?
This is beyond just politics, as usual, this is a war for our very culture and freedoms. We have reached the point where patriotic citizens should start doing what is our duty to do. Go to the ballot box in droves to remove these people from office. And a good tar and feathering wouldn’t be bad either. If not they will stop at nothing to end the freedoms we hold dear by invoking Sharia Law. They don’t care, it’s all about money and the next election to them. This nation is, and always will be a Judeo-Christian Nation, and we will fight to the end to keep it this way!
