An image is going viral of a gang of left-wing rioters hanging up a Somali flag over a gas station in Minneapolis over the weekend, in what could be considered a symbol of conquest. The flag replaced what was formerly an American flag, with the rioters enshrining their true allegiances.

It has been well documented how the city of Minneapolis has descended into a hell scape since last summer’s orgy of destruction prompted by the death of serial felon crackhead George Floyd after a police encounter. Riots emerged again over the weekend, after an armed felon was shot and killed by Minneapolis Police after resisting arrest.
The murder rate rose by 72.3 percent from 2019 and 2020, as the ends of the Black Lives Matter terror movement against the Bill of Rights and Constitution are achieved:
Journalist Michael Tracey catalogued the horrors in the wake of the BLM riots over the summer, which was entirely glossed over by the fake news media:
Big League Politics has reported on how Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her constituent base have demonstrated what happens in such circumstances.
Minneapolis police are asking their City Council to fund 14 more officers to deal with a crime wave, as mobs of roving young men are regularly targeting drunk men for vicious gang beat-downs.
Law enforcement are requesting three more investigators, eight additional neighborhood outreach officers, and three more traffic enforcement personnel. Mayor Jacob Frey is standing with Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, arguing that more officers are necessary to deal with this growing problem.
Business owners have complained about the gang beat-downs, which may be racially motivated. One recent instance occurred at Target Field Plaza and happened in broad daylight. It involved a group of African-American men targeting a lone Caucasian individual, knocking him unconscious, stomping his body, throwing a potted plant on him, and then crushing him with a bicycle during a robbery…
“I don’t think I have ever seen anything like what I saw at Target Field,” said Ken Sherman, who owns 7 Steakhouse and Sushi.
“Look, stealing is one thing. But the level of viciousness goes far beyond I think anything any of us who are civil people imagine,” Sherman added.
There is a 53 percent increase in robberies year-to-year in Minneapolis since 2018. Mayor Frey believes a greater police presence would help send the message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated.
“We want officers out there on the street walking the beat, preventing some of these serious crimes before they take place to begin with,” Frey said.
He is not getting much support from the city council, as there are several councilmembers who are happy to keep the status quo in place.
“I want to tie our investments to structural change that improves the performance of the police department,” councilman Steve Fletcher said.
“Then we do need to careful about who we’re targeting. Because you’re basically criminalizing standing on the street,” Fletcher added.
Sherman believes that the city is suffering because of the soft-on-crime policies pushed by liberal public officials.
Left-wing politics and third-world economic migration are a dangerous combination, and the city of Minneapolis is learning that the hard way.
