Barack Obama’s immigration policy is having unattended consequences for the Democratic Party. Veteran politicians are being replaced by people who consider them outsiders. These lifers thought they could pander to this new group. But how do you appeal to a people who have as much contempt for traditional America as a Democrat, particularly if you don’t belong to their tribe.
Phyllis Kahn actually lost her race to two Somalis – Ilhan Omar (the winner) and Mohamud Noor (runner-up.) The primary voter turnout was up by almost 40 percent over 2014.
Omar credited her win to immigrant Somalis, and posted a statement on her website: “I am so proud that the majority of contributions to my campaign are from members of the Somali community who believe in my leadership.” Financial contributions flowed in from Somalis in other states who supported her as well.
The Democratic Party’s VP pick, Tim Kane, let the cat out of the bag when he openly stated that white America has to be replaced with minorities in order to make the country more equitable. But for now, they’re content in replacing other minorities with immigrants who have as much contempt for American values as they do.
