Minneapolis, MN- A video of a group of (presumably) Somali young men harassing a white (presumably) gay man on a Minneapolis street has resurfaced from 2009.
On September 18, 2016, “Gorilla Mindset” author Mike Cernovich posted the following tweet with the caption “Somali Muslims harass an American citizen walking on the streets of Minnesota. @PRyan (Speaker of the House Paul Ryan) brought these “refugees” in.”

Cernovich blames House Speaker Paul Ryan, but fails to mention the fact that Governor Dayton told Minnesotans to move to a different state if they disagreed with his immigration policies (Dayton to those questioning refugee resettlement: “Find another state” AlphaNewsMN.com October 2015) and, in the wake of the ISIS related attack by a Somali Muslim in St. Cloud last weekend, Dayton admonished Minnesotans to practice “tolerance” (“Dayton call for tolerance…”).
The video shows a mob of young black men following a white man who just seemingly happened to walk past them on the street. Yelling, “I hate gay people” and “Gay is not the way,” along with some other unintelligible insults, the group consisting of what appears to be elementary school-aged boys to older teens, harasses the man for more than a block. During the harassment, two police officers walking the other direction meet the group, but seem to do nothing but glance at the commotion as they walk by.
Conservative activist and Breibart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos, noted the tweet in a Breitbart column excoriating the Left’s double-standard on its “support” for LGBT causes alongside of its support for Muslim groups today, saying:
“…exposes one of the left’s most egregious double standards.
They’ve decided to support Muslims: the people who want to kill gays, or at the very least make homosexuality illegal…The difference…(is) countless millions of Muslims want to kill or outlaw gays.
If you think I’m exaggerating, watch these nice refugees in Minnesota, and listen to their comments on gays.”
