A heavily attended caucus in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood ended abruptly Tuesday night after an altercation between activists.

About 300 people, nearly all of them Somali-American, attended the event at the Brian Coyle Center. Most of them were there to support Mohamud Noor, who is challenging Rep. Phyllis Kahn for a seat in the Minnesota House.

The altercation over who would chair the event took place before any delegates were elected. Two women outside the meeting said that an aide for council member Andrew Johnson, Ilham Omar, was attacked.

“She was attacked,” Johnson confirmed in an interview. “She’s got some bruises and cuts but she’s going to be fine.”

Police escorting people outside said that no one was arrested.

“There was an argument about who was controlling the meeting, as far as I could tell,” said Park Board commissioner Scott Vreeland, who tried to break up the fight. “And then there was kind of a rush forward of folks that wanted something different.”

A handful of police quickly started dispersing the crowd, telling people to leave the building. The event, which began around 7 p.m., was over by 7:40 p.m.

It appears the two people running to chair the meeting were Mohamed Jama and Zamzam Ali. “I’m speechless,” Ali said outside the gymnasium.

Corey Day, executive director of the DFL, said the precinct elects 44 delegates out of about 700 in the House district.

“I have no clue exactly why this transpired,” Day told reporters after the room had cleared. “I’m just as shocked as you guys. I really just want to talk to the folks at the party and figure out how we’re going to resolve this.”

More. The brawl was apparently escalating for days, incited by a Somali Muslim who then cried victim:

Ilhan was an active participant in the hostile environment that occurred that night and was responsible for inciting conflict in the days leading up to the caucus. Prior to the fight, she engaged in a tat-for-tat exchange on Facebook that essentially materialized into a physical altercation between Noor supporters and Kahn supporters on the night of the caucus. Among her posts include taunting lyrics and the following tribal reference: “We ruled kingdoms made you our servants, it’s only with honor you claim to be one of us.” She has since deleted many of these statements.

Ilhan is not from the cedar-riverside neighborhood; in fact, she lives in Ward 2. Her role at the caucus was to monitor the process to ensure fairness and provide translation services as necessary. The role specifically called for someone who is neutral on the race prior to the DFL endorsement. It is a well-established fact in the Somali-American community that Ilhan was heavily campaigning for Noor, leaving many on the other side wondering how the process could be fair when the monitor herself was compromised. Her ties to Noor are deep. Not only are they co-founders of the New American Political Action Committee, but after becoming Executive Director of the Confederation of the Somali Community, Noor appointed Ilhan Omar to serve on his board. None of these relationships are problematic in and of themselves, but it’s hard to believe Ilhan when she insinuates that she was an unbiased party official at the caucus that evening. Many were also upset that she spoke with a classist tone — saying that the many low-income people in the neighborhood were “sloppy” and “uneducated” and thus needing her political guidance.

Corey Day, by the way, is hard core:

…served as a Director on the Obama for America campaign in Florida, worked for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in Los Angeles, and was the Minnesota state field director in 2004 for the Kerry for President campaign.

  2. What’s new? It is all Islamic FILTH know how to do. Fighting, killing, robbing, maiming, cheating, etc., etc.

  3. Such is the concept of Democracy in Islamic countries. Welcome to the new Ahmerikah!

  4. This is a cultural thing- IXQuick : Africa Legislature Fistfights – thug style!

  5. they are democrats and they are muslins so what do you expect – neither democrats or muslins respect the rule of law, the Bill of Rights or the US / state constitution — the president is a perfect example of a democrat muslin

  6. I bet it was between Sunni & Shiite. Zam Zam Ali has to be Shia!

  7. support Mohamud Noor, who is challenging Rep. Phyllis Kahn

    now you know why any Muslims showed up- they need to defeat the JEWESS but DUMBASS JEWESS is a DEM LEFTARD – the record proves she is typical of suicidal multi culti JINOS –

    here are a sampling of her wacky doodle ideas and her CORRUPTION:
    –Kahn proposed reducing the voting age in Minnesota to 12.
    –Kahn was charged with theft for removal of Republican campaign literature from doorsteps of several houses.
    —(pandering to Muslims for votes) – repeatedly advocated for repeal of so-called “Blue Laws,” which forbid liquor stores from operating on Sundays and some holidays.AND
    —to repeal the ban on first-cousin marriage in Minnesota, …..
    She reportedly got the idea after learning that cousin marriage is an acceptable form of marriage among some cultural groups that have a strong presence in Minnesota, namely the Hmong and Somali

    from wikipedia

  8. One of the few times a muslim is a better choice. Really.. 1st cousins marriage? Why not brother and sister

  9. I wonder how long it will take for the one time most powerful country on Earth to become a disease/thug/criminal/terrorist/Muslim/minority/
    ignorance/etc. ridden hell hole?

    To a child of 1950’s America, this is like watching my beautiful country rot and burn before my very eyes. I can’t begin to tell you how angering and depressing it is.

    Death to Islam.

    • The time is now. We are in the End Times. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus of the bible get on your knees now and invite Him into your heart then go to a bible believing church on Sunday.
      I am serious folks.
