Minneapolis Installs Sharia Hotline to Report Americans Who Criticize Islam

The city of Minneapolis has set up a hotline for residents to report citizens who criticize Islam, in order to prosecute them for “hate crimes”, according to statements on the city’s website.

The city, run by Democrat Mayor Besty Hodges, a non-Muslim who regularly wears a hijab in public, will operate the “service” through its 3-1-1 helpline, and claims it is targeting any “harassing behaviors motivated by prejudice”, according to a press release.

According to the local newspaper, the Star-Tribune, “the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.”

The city’s Department of Civil Rights clearly states on its website that it only enforces hate crimes against certain “protected classes.” Muslim imams, as members of the “protected class,” can preach the destruction of America from a Minneapolis mosque, and they will not be prosecuted.

A city official also admitted the creation of the sharia hotline was the election of President Trump and that the targets are his supporters.

“Since the general election, many of us have experienced, witnessed firsthand or heard of actions of: racism, xenophobia, sexism and bigotry directed at people here and in cities across the United States,” Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights Director Velma Korbel wrote in a statement posted on the city’s website. “In no uncertain terms, hate-motivated speech and actions have no place in Minneapolis nor will they be tolerated.”

WND reports:

Korbel said the city’s tough stance on “hate” is reflected in the views of its mayor, Betsy Hodges. Korbel states on the city website:

This department echoes Minneapolis mayor, Betsy Hodges’ resolve and commitment when she stated: “I will not compromise the public safety of the people of Minneapolis to satisfy Trump’s desire to put politics before public safety. Minneapolis is being built and strengthened by people from all over the world and I am grateful for their commitment to our city. I stand with them today and will continue to take that stand as the President-elect prepares to take office.”

The press release announcing the new hotline gives a broad definition of “discrimination,” citing any “action or a decision that treats a person or a group negatively for reasons such as their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity.”

The release also places local police on notice, stating:

If you, your family or someone you know experiences discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, sex, LGBT status or other protected classes, or has been the victim of police misconduct, please call 612-673-3012 or visit http://www.minneapolismn.gov/civilrights.

Shahram Hadian, whose family fled Iran in the run-up to the Islamic revolution in 1978, said he was aghast at the Minneapolis hotline.

“This is ultimately what they got passed up in Canada. But this is the backdoor approach to eventually setting up hate speech laws … hate crimes morph into hate speech,” said Hadian, a former law enforcement officer turned pastor who heads Truth In Love Ministries.

“It’s crazy to think my family left Iran because of the impending Islamic State to come to this nation because of its freedom – and what other freedom is more precious than your freedom of speech? – and now to see this backdoor attempt to try to impose hate speech laws.”

    Betsy Hodges, you awear a Hijab but don’t claim to be Muslim? Which is it? You eitherare, or you aren’t..which is it? What? Care to say that again? Actions speak louder than words so you may as well admit you are Muslim. I saw all of the softy, leftist, hate speaking, Jew bashing, Christian/Christianity bashing groups you could find placed on the protection list, but sadly, Jews and Christians were left off the list. You are no better than the hate spouting Imams who fill Muslim mosques, and you are no better than those in the Middle East who shout “death to America.” You don’t deserve to hold government office anywhere in America but, unfortuntely; you were elected. That is probably due to the fact that you refuse to admit one thing, who/what you truly are.

      Robert there is a place in our nation for “FREEDOM of RELIGION.”! Crawl back under your rock of hatred and wait till God delivers you to the hell you wish for others!

      1. Ree

        There is also a place in our nation (believe it or not, it’s enumerated in the exact same Amendment) for CRITICIZING anything we damn well please. I live in Minneapolis and liberal politicians have inundate my community with Somalian Muslims who do not believe in ANY of the freedoms you hold dear. They are awful, rude people and the Constitution guarantees my right to say it.

        1. TJ Henderson

          No Govt Local or Fed should be showing favoritism toward any one religion and making Laws no doubt concerning it! First of all Words are not a Crime. If No Bodily harm to anyone they can’t claim it’s a crime. This isn’t American Law and they better Protest and bring charges up on this woman for even allowing it! Nip it in the bud or they will think they can do this all over this nation! They have ruined Europe! I say deport their Asses but at least Stand up for your Rights!

      2. You’re free to practice any religion you want in the United States. However, when you impose your religious will on others because outsiders don’t accept or abide by your dogma, then I have the freedom to resist and say what I will because Freedom of Expression is a guaranteed right that your ideology has no power to silence.

        Unless it is No- believers. Muslims specifically do NOT recognize the Constitution of the United States. So save your so-called respect for FOR. We know different.

    2. Ree

      Betsy is not a Muslim, just another white liberal.

      I actually went to elementary school with Betsy. She was as big of a loser then as she is now.

    Don’t you love it when liberals jump the constitutional shark? It is always their over-reach that is their undoing.

  4. drdtuttle

    QURAN 3.28: muslims are PROHIBITED from having FRIENDS, GUARDIANS, and even COUNCILORS those who are unbelievers (making it IMPOSSIBLE to integrate into a non-Islamic nation)….. in March, England’s PM May stated there were 40 (FORTY) NO-GO ZONES IN ENGLAND….MUSLIMS ONLY….. (now coming to minn?)

    They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the

    Thank you for the post.

    As a straight white male, why do I feel oppressed by the professional victims of society and the neo-fascist leftists who seek to censor me and destroy me if I utter a complaint?

  17. Ron

    You are a coward and a malcontent. You don’t deserved to be an American. Victims like you complain and whine, stop whinning and be a man, oh, that would be too hard, you would have to work and that is something that abhors you sense of entitlement!

  18. Richard C. Kreitenstein

    Take a note, Sharia-loving goat-lovers … Islam is despicable in each and every one of its parts. And your ‘prophet’ was a pedophile and mass-murderer.

    Now you can add my name to your list of those who hate that POS the world knows as Islam.

    It’s not a religion. It’s a cult and should be outlawed.

    Ignoramuses in Minnesota also elected Al Franken and Jessy Ventura.

    This country is going down, little by little.

    You arabs can take your hotline and shove it up your butt too. You must deal with your own hate, and assimilate into becoming real Americans. You are visitors in our home, and you should act like one.

  27. Western civilization is at war with a cult that is pushing hard for world-wide domination. All is fair when cultural, societal and national survival is at stake. Tyrannical elites and their traitor lackeys have FORCED foreign barbarians upon We, the People. If patriots have to bend reality and truth a little to battle an enemy that will use ANY devious scheme to defeat the West then bend or even lie… whatever is needed to defeat that which would enslave We, the People if it could.

    Do a web search and dig deep to learn how much misery the Somalis have brought to the USA and the HUGE expense in taxpayer dollars those barbarians have incurred. The traitors infesting the USA need to be brought in front of military tribunals.

    Visited MN back in 2000. Saw the beginnings of the infestation and told the locals you’ll have big problems within 20 years but they didn’t believe me. Oh well.

  29. Roxie

    So glad I moved from MN. So embarrassed I am from MN.

    Cool how Trumptards fall for anything. Did any 0f you retards LOOK AT THE “SHARIA”” SITE? Perhaps you should ask an infant to assist you to visit the site. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with Sharia, nor are hate crimes reported there limited to those against Muslims.

    Even YOU could be a victim of a hate crime — and will be, I predict, when normal people have had t with you pigs. I know I have, Have a nice day, you won’t have many more. 🙂
