There I was, innocently looking into whether CAIR-OK's outrage of Sen. Inhofe's common-sense statement -- "I believe in racial and ethnic profiling" when it comes to defending airplanes against jihadis with bombs in their underpants -- had come to anything when I found that CAIR-MN was where the action is, Or, rather, as Refugee Resettlement Watch has been chronicling, St. Cloud, MN is where the dhimmitude is.
From a CAIR-MN press release:
Event designed to help community build bridges of understanding NB: "Understanding" is code for submission.
(ST. PAUL, MN, 1/27/10) On January 26, the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) co-sponsored a community town hall meeting at the St. Cloud City Chambers in response to recent anti-Muslim cartoons posted around the city. More than 300 community members were in attendance. Speakers included the mayor, city attorney, chief of police, president of St. Cloud State U and "the human rights coordinator for the St. Cloud Human Rights Office."
Yes, St. Cloud, population 66,000, has a "human rights coordinator." And lots more.
The town hall meeting was co-sponsored by CAIR-MN, St. Cloud Office of the Mayor, City Attorney's Office, St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud Area Somali Salvation Organization, St. Cloud Islamic Center, Create CommUNITY, Great River Interfaith Partnership, Center for Service-Learning and Social Change, St. Cloud Area Somali Women's Association, National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum- St. Cloud Chapter, NAACP- St. Cloud, College of Saint Benedict and St. John's University.
As a follow up to the town hall, CAIR-MN will hold a “Know Your Rights” workshop in St. Cloud on Saturday, February 13 to address the community’s safety concerns.
Sounds like a bona fide hotbed of multi-culti-Islamization to me.
Meanwhile, the man who admitted to posting the cartoons -- hot lights? enhanced interogation techniques? -- has been cited. The AP reports:
A Minnesota man who admits posting anti-Muslim cartoons in several St. Cloud locations has been cited with violating a city ordinance.
Forty-one-year-old Sidney Allen Elyea of Waite Park was assessed two civil charges Friday of posting materials on fixtures. Each carries a maximum fine of $250.
Elyea says he posted the cartoons to educate others about Islam.
St. Cloud city attorney Jan Petersen says the cartoons had sexually explicit depictions of bestiality and sodomy. He says the postings were designed to harass Muslim citizens.
Elyea's attorney tells the St. Cloud Times the cartoons may have been distasteful but Elyea meant no harm. Ryan Garry says Elyea was exercising his right to free speech.
Garry says his client plans to fight the charges.
