When the moment called for sending a strong message that Portland was serious about yanking the welcome mat for terrorists, Mayor Sam Adams sent the Somali/Muslim community a gay man, a woman and “peace keeper.”
Adams said he and Commissioner Amanda Fritz and Police Chief Mike Reese will be doing outreach to leadership in the Somali community.
These people show understanding about Islam by completely biffing the most basic understanding of Islam’s beliefs about gays, women and wimpies? I thought the medium was the message. This decision to make himself, Amanda Fritz and Mike Reese the liaisons to the Somali/Muslim community is tantamount to the city sending a black councilman to a KKK confab or Sam Adams to a MENSA meeting. I’m surprised he didn’t decide to send a Jew! (Gads, is one of them Jewish?)
I’m not saying all Muslims are bigots, I’m saying if you want to talk to the devout Muslims and Imams you send a man, thank-you-very-much. Of course it’s not enlightened. It’s not right. But that’s the way it is. Sam’s homage to political correctness notwithstanding, THEY DON’T want to talk to the chick or the gay guy.
Adams is more worried about the Somali community who produced this would be bomber than about the thousands of HIS CONSTITUENTS who would have died at the hands of a member of the Somali community. He cares more about political correctness than about being correct.
Adams SHOULD have angrily denounced the attempted bombing of his citizens. He SHOULD have said he won’t rest until justice is done. He SHOULD have apologized for not being a part of the effort to bring in this would be bomber.
When we needed a firm hand Adams sent a limp wrist.
But to show his ‘toughness’ and his ‘seriousness’ what did Adams do? He vowed to redouble police patrols to —-watch mosques to stop any “stupid copycatting” of the attempted arson of the mosque where Mo Mo the accused bomber prayed in Corvallis.
There was room to do both but he chose only one side. In their zeal to look politically correct, Portland officials–especially Sam Adams–show they don’t understand the threat. And now apparently Adams thinks the rest of us are to blame!
“Bad actions by one member of any group does not and should not be generalized or applied more widely to other members of that same group,” he said. “Otherwise, as the biggest racial group in Portland, we European-Americans would be in deep trouble.”
Pardon me, as a card carrying “European-American,” it was “European Americans” and the rest of the hue of humanity who WERE in deep trouble Friday night and our Mayor didn’t know the threat because he was too busy riding a bicycle while singing, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the way to the tram to attend a planning seminar.
The bombing plot was “very unnerving,” he said. “It came as a shock to me, as I’m sure it did for most Portlanders,”
We don’t ask much of our elected officials. Safety is their number one job. And Adams and the rest didn’t want to be a part of stopping this threat to our safety. This is what he told the Zero over the weekend about belonging to the Joint Terrorism Task Force:
Adams said the city still operates under the agreement reached with federal authorities at that time [which is not to be a part of it]. He stressed that he has much more faith in the Obama administration and the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s office now than he did in 2005.
See what I mean? This guys really does his homework, doesn’t he?

In 2005, Tom Potter, Randy Leonard and Sam approved pulling out of the Joint Terrorism Task Force with the FBI because the FBI was serious about combating radical jihad (Another reason: Tom Potter couldn’t get a security clearance and was miffed at the FBI over it). Portland pulled the plug on its involvement with the JTTF in year seven of a nine year long investigation into animal and eco terrorism, AFTER the Portland seven were uncovered, AFTER the arrest of Maher Mike Hawash for terrorism, AFTER the Al Haramain “charity” was busted for sending money to terrorists in Chechnya AFTER the Bly training camp bust… the list goes on. This is little old OREGON! What more of a sign do these guys need to take terrorism seriously?

This city, county and state use the taxes of the law abiding to encourage illegal behavior by currying favor with illegal aliens and other law breakers.
Somali women requested and got special hours to swim at local pools–paying for it themselves.
Somali children in Portland’s schools are allowed to pray IN SCHOOL DURING SCHOOL HOURS.
Illegal aliens and immigrants were first in line to get the flu shots to fight off the threatened pandemic last winter in Portland.
In the affidavit this is what the FBI claims Mo Mo said about killing women and children,
“You know there’s gonna be a lot of children there?” an undercover FBI operative asked Mohamud. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded that he was looking for a “huge mass that will…be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays.” Further discussing the attack, Mohamud allegedly stated, “…it’s in Oregon; and Oregon like you know, nobody ever thinks about it.”
No, the only one who doesn’t think about Oregon is our elected “leaders.” The rest of us are only too aware of the dangers of their ignorance.
