Your Day in Muslim Somali Swimming Lessons – YMCA Embraces Sharia to Survive; Gets Police Escorts, Public Funds for It
Young Man, There’s a Place You Can Go . . . . Oh, wait, you cannot go there because it’s sharia Muslima swimming time. Yup, it’s no longer “fun to stay at the YMCA.” And you can “no longer hang out with all the boys,” either.
Hey, It’s the New & Improved Muslim Village People Approved YMCA . . .
It’s stark symbolism of what’s happening in America: YMCAs–ironically once Christian organizations–are embracing sharia and Muslims to stay afloat. And they’re getting tax money to subsidize this–in the form of police escorts and funds, which is completely unconstitutional. Where is the ACLU when you need them? Cricket noises abound.
When I was a little kid, my parents sent me to the YMCA for swimming lessons. But the suburban Detroit YMCA where I learned to swim doesn’t exist anymore. It’s now some sort of industrial park warehouse location. And that’s indicative of what is happening with “the Y” all over the country. YMCAs are dying out fast. The organization–the acronym for Young Men’s Christian Association–is now best known as the topic and title of The Village People’s 1978 disco song.
And, so, how does YMCA stay afloat? By providing gender-segregated, Muslim-only swimming lessons for Muslima chicks in Minnesota.
Yup, the YMCA is now the YMMA or perhaps the YMShariaA. FYI, when my Orthodox Jewish parents sent me for swimming lessons, they didn’t demand that all little boys and non-Jews be removed. We would never dream up such an intolerant, absurd demand. That’s not how we are. But it is, sadly, how Muslims are . . . in swimming, and in many countries, in who gets to live. And the separate swimming lessons for Muslim girls are a preview of what’s to come (and what is, actually, already here).
Another thing on this is that the swimming lessons program “specifically caters to the needs of Somali [DS: that means Muslim] girls.” Um, is there something about their bodies that makes them sink? Something about them that makes the way they swim different from the rest of the human population? (It’s a myth that Blacks can’t swim due to some fictional “body density.”) I mean, I understand it’s far more difficult to navigate the waters when you have on scuba gear and bombs you’re about to detonate. But, I mean, other than that . . . .
Rayan Dhamuke, 12, doesn’t get to swim a lot, unlike her brothers. During the past summer, she had to visit the pool at 5 a.m. so that she would have the privacy she needed to enjoy the water while still adhering to her family’s cultural and religious beliefs. To better accommodate girls like Dhamuke, the downtown St. Paul YMCA, in partnership with the St. Paul Police Department, has started a swim group for Somali-American girls. The group, which began in October, is serving as an outlet for girls ages 5 to 17 to learn the basics of swimming.
One evening last week, the din of girls’ laughter and splashes filled the windowless, humid pool room of the St. Paul downtown YMCA. . . . Special considerations have to be made to address modesty concerns so that the Muslim girls can swim and not reveal too much of themselves. During the hourlong swim practice, all other swimmers are cleared out of the pool. The men’s locker room is locked. Female life guards are brought in. The pool, which is on the building’s third floor, has no windows so they don’t have to worry about prying eyes from outside.
St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith had discussions with Britts to let the Y know that, through the department’s connections with the Somali-American community, they had learned that such a group was needed. “I think this is just a great opportunity for them to learn basic skills that we take for granted,” said Sgt. Jennifer O’Donnell, who has worked with the Somali community regularly during her time with the department.
Yes, I, too, agree that tax funds should be used for swimming and underwater training for young Muslim girls. After all, why should the Ikhwan [Brotherhood] pay for these lessons, when tax funds and police support plus desperate YMCA dhimmi dhummies can be used to help these women learn the skills necessary for plumbing New York’s harbor when the time comes.
“We have to have privacy,” said Ubah Ali, Dhamuke’s mother. For years, Ali said she has been trying to find a place where her daughter could swim, but nothing seemed to work. Not knowing how to swim is a safety risk, especially in the state of 10,000 lakes, Ali said.
And in the Hudson River when you’re trying to plant bombs.
Hani Hussein, who volunteers at the Al-Ihsan Islamic Center in St. Paul, said she looked into reserving public pools for girls, but it was too expensive. “I really wanted the girls to come swim to learn not only how to swim but to build their confidence,” Hussein said.
Cuz’, G-d, er . . . allah, knows that Muslim chicks’ self-confidence is not high enough.
Other metro YMCAs have water safety programs, but they don’t specifically cater to the needs of Somali girls. However, Britts recalled that a YMCA in north Minneapolis did have a Somali girls swim group about a decade ago.
Funding for the group comes from two metrowide water safety grants from Hawkins Inc. and Abbey’s Hope Charitable Foundation. The police department helps provide transportation for the girls to the YMCA.
If you live in Minneapolis-St. Paul, don’t patronize Hawkins and don’t donate to Abbey’s Hope. Clearly, Abbey has thrown in the towel and put up the surrender flag to Islam.
By the way, don’t dare play The Village People’s “YMCA” anywhere near this sharia swimfest. Gays aren’t welcome in Islam. In fact, it gets you a fate worse than drowning.
