Current Affairs REPUBLICAN MUSLIM FORMER REFUGEE LAUNCHES BID TO TAKE ILHAN OMAR'S SEAT

Looks like Ilhan will have to step up her game.


Dalia al-Aquidi is tired of Ilhan Omar playing identity politics. "Muslims, Christians, Jews are all Americans," she said.
A Muslim Iraqi refugee has launched her bid to enter Congress - and plans to unseat Ilhan Omar as the Representative for Minneapolis in the process.

Dalia al-Aquidi is tired of hearing the Democratic representative play a divisive identity politics game, so she has joined a growing field of Republicans determined to take the Somalian-born congresswoman out at the next election.

“She’s spreading hatred, and she is spreading racism throughout not only her district, not only her state, but throughout the whole country, and this is very important,” al-Aqidi, 51, told the New York Post on Thursday after announcing her bid. “She’s hurting the moderate Muslims; Muslims like myself. She doesn’t represent me as a Muslim.”

Speaking to Fox News, she added: "She needs to be stopped. I truly believe that I'm strong enough to beat her at her own game."

Al-Aquidi plans to neutralize Omar's background as a Muslim refugee as a campaigning point by bringing her own story to the table. Omar fled Somalia with her family aged 9, while al-Aquidi escaped Saddam Hussein's reign in Iraq with her family in the early 1990s when still in her 20s. "[We're] basically the same," she told Fox.

However, unlike Omar, al-Aquidi rejects identity politics and the division it brings to America. "Muslims, Christians, Jews are all Americans," she said, adding: "Every time she [Omar] opens her mouth she says something either anti-US or antisemitic."

In early January NGO Stop Antisemitism named Omar as their Antisemite of the Year following a poll, which also included Louis Farrakhan and Richard Spencer, for, among other things, accusing Israel of having hypnotized the world.

Al-Aquidi is used to the politics game, having enjoyed a prestigious journalistic career as a political journalist working for Voice of America and then as the White House correspondent for Alhurra, a US-based Arabic channel which broadcasts in the Middle East. She says she is grateful to America for the opportunities she has enjoyed.

"I am loyal to the country that gave me a chance, gave me a brighter future," she told Fox, comparing herself to Omar who she said "continually tries to weaken the country and divide us."

However, despite her criticism of the freshman congresswoman, al-Aquidi acknowledged that running a negative campaign would not be in her best interests overall. “Conflict resolution is an art. You cannot do anything without a conversation. You talk to the other side and try to figure out something that will be acceptable," she said, drawing on her journalistic experience. "Trashing the other side will get you nowhere."

Instead the focus of her campaign will be on what more can be done for the residents of Minneapolis, who she accuses Omar of having ignored in favor of raising her own political profile. Al-Aquidi recently moved to the city and has spent every day talking to locals about the issues that move them.

“I’ve done my homework for months and months before I decided to move here,” she told the New York Post. “On Thanksgiving, I helped feed more than 250 homeless people in Minneapolis, which she [Omar] doesn’t remember. She doesn’t even talk about homeless situation in Minneapolis, which is extremely cold and there are not enough places of shelters for them to sleep in. It’s a very, very important problem in Minneapolis, and it’s getting very cold.”

There is evidence that Omar's constituents are sympathetic to al-Aquidi's criticisms of their representative. Omar campaigned on a platform of giving the Somalian community a voice, but despite having introduced the Homes for All Act which would authorize the expansion of America's public housing supply by 12 million units, some locals have said that they feel her focus is elsewhere.

“It’s just one crisis after another. She could have done so much more for our community with immigration and education, but she’s not. She’s picking fights,” one Somali man who chose to remain anonymous told the New York Post.

Al-Aquidi is prepared for a tough fight which will see her go up against a number of fellow Republicans including former auto sales manager Brent Whaley, special-education professional Danielle Stella, minister and missionary Lucia Vogel, businessman Lacy Johnson, and activist Alley Waterbury. If successful, she then faces a huge task to flip the district, which Omar won with a landslide 78% in 2018.

Curbing gang violence and bringing people together will be high on her agenda, along with the homelessness issue. But al-Aquidi admits that she chose to run against Omar specifically, seeing the congresswoman herself as a threat to America's interests.

“If anyone thinks I’m just running to be in Congress, I would have chosen one of smallest districts in Virginia,” she told the New York Post, “But I chose a battle because I believe in what I’m doing, because I believe in the Constitution and I’m defending the Constitution against people who are working against this country.”

This is her campaign video:


She sounds menacing. She probably smokes hard & drinks hard. And she is Iraqi? Baa'ah
 
Ilhan will win again. She upgraded from a farax to an cadan guy. Smart political move as she looked anti western before but this disproves this idea.

Don't project your insecurity and fetish on Ilhan. She beat the game without changing her culture and Identity. She is comfortable in her skin unlike you who wish you were born Jessica every time you look at the mirror.

Choke on a Dildo

Warning for what? You insult Somalis all day 24/7. If you can dish out, you ought to be able to take it. Plus you participate as a member of the forum.


I am not here to sell my dignity as a somali, so please hold on to your threats. I don;t care.

Don't hide behind your modship. If you are engaged in demeaning somalis and insult somali males as you please, you will get a negative response and lose respect.

I will address your posts as a member of the forum. I am not here to trade my principles for access to the forum.. I will defend myself and Somalis and will not let a negative comment hang unchallegned.


I take somali insults personal because I am somali, the son of somali parents.

yawn. No member of this forum should face personal abuse. If you took offence to what I said about a group and thought it addressed you, then those are your own insecurities.

This makes sense. Nice reply and come back. Better than threats and pointing to your position. I can also understand if you can't handle my replies to you for their effectiveness and how they expose your shaky foundation.

I am willing to ignore you altogether as I often do.

which is why you make threads about me?

anyway not to get sidetracked, ilhan is a politician at the end of the day, who has a PR time behind her who analyse public perception of her and advise her on ways to mitigate major issues. She’s a smart cookie for following their advice.
 
Ilhan has enough non-Somali supporters now to win re-election. She's among the top 5% best known politicians in the US, and her district has been staunchly Democrat since 1963. This Arab lady is targeting Ilhan simply as she thinks she can beat a Somali. It's anti-Somali bigotry and nothing more. She's jealous of what Ilhan has become

Ilhan is beloved in her dicstrict and people like her honest approach to politics. She represents people's views and ideas of Trump and she makes no secret how much she despises him. She also delivers to her constituents. The university of Minnesota being the biggest institution she represents.

Some low grade like that Iraqi woman will have zero impact on her chances. I do not live in her district and live in a different area outside the metro, but she would have my vote in a heartbeat in every election.


No sane american votes republican. The party of hate and ignorance.


PS: I made the thread because I was impressed by your choice of username and got curious. I wanted to know how you came up with that. Little did I know it was some Japanese shop name lol. Muji is a somali word and cool one at that,

Yea, majority in her district are white and liberal or moderates. They also fund all the useless hillbillies outside the metro area who vote for Trump through taxation. State earns most taxes from twin cities and businesses. She reps crucial area of the Metro and state., The somali popoulation is also important to her as constituents. Should they decide to vote against her, which will never happen knowing somalis, She will still win if she keeps the white majority.


No sane person votes republicans.
 
She doesn't recognize PIM and she's also an sjw.. Sorry I can't support this cuz :uCkf6mf:

But you are willing to get screwed for your lack of foresight by the winner who beats her later. First law they introduce would be to make life difficult for Somalis and start their campaign of hate against non-whites using somalis as their bogeymen.

We are lucky to have a muslim Attorney general who defends the rights of the state residents against abusive power now and a governor who is a democrat. Absent men like these from state power, all we would hear would be how bad somalis are, how bad immigrants are a drain on the system, how Minnesota needs to ban refugees just to name a few of the hate campaigns we deal with when some incest born cracker takes power. We would even see scenes of Immigration officers chasing people in the streets if republicans were in charge this election year to please Trump.

I vote for a Khaniis over Republican.

I like Ilhan too and a lot! Not sure why you thought I was attacking her. Just highlighting that she’s a politician at the end of the day and politicians construct political stunts to get into the public’s favour.

Nah, I wanted to pick a fight with ya. It is a complement when I pick fights with you. I know you would support her based on your liberal sentimentalities. Ilhan is fiery and brave, true to her beliefs. That is the politician you want. One who Stays the course and destorys everyone else who deserves it.
