A Crossroads in Saint Cloud: Culture War or Rebuilding Together
This is a long form essay on the situation in Saint Cloud following the knife attack by Dirhan Adan, the backlash against Somalis that followed, and the resistance to that backlash. Written in several sections, it explores how the anti-refugee far right is using Islamophobia as a cover for their attack on the working class, compares and contrasts this anti-immigrant sentiment with the historical anti-German sentiment that helped form St Cloud's history of tension and resistance, and analyzes the city's economic conditions. It puts forward a call for community working class unity to push for housing, wages, and jobs, and against attempts by the far right to push cultural warfare.
