Minnesota Baby Daddy Of 9 Joins ISIS To Escape Child Support

MINNEAPOLIS — Abdifatah Ahmed struggled for years to make ends meet.

After losing his $15-an-hour job fueling airliners in Minneapolis, the Somali-American father of nine survived on low-wage jobs and public assistance. He complained about working hard, but never having enough money. His circumstances worsened when he was ordered to pay more than $700 a month to support three of his children — including one less than a year old.

Months later, he surfaced in Syria, where he went to fight for the Islamic State.

    Can you blame him?

    ‘”He was looking for paradise.” ‘


    Screw the cowardly media outlets and the taking heads on the news channels who refuse to state the obvious about the Islamic obsession with martyrdom and paradise.

    They’re portrayed as generous individuals fighting on the behalf of others, when the truth is that they are selfish and only fighting for their chance at the Islamic Paradise that the Koran repeatedly states awaits those who die in ‘Allah’s cause’ (yep, jihad).

    What a brilliant idea–hire a Zoomali terrorist to fuel airplanes.

    What’s he complaining about? He could pick up over 60k a year by working only 12 hours a day.

    “He complained about working hard, but never having enough money.”

    Wow! What a coincidence! I have the same problem!
    Here’s some possible remedies.
    1) Stop fathering unwanted children
    2) Quit marrying women then divorcing them
    3) Don’t renew your gym membership. Work out at home.
    4) Quit drinking
    5) Quit “dressing sharply”. Buy less expensive clothes.

    It might help.

      Then he wouldn’t be a playa!

    Well it’s not as if he was ever going to pay for those kids and more like would eventually father 7 or 8 more.

    Most of his fellow Somali’s would have been more than happy to settle for welfare rather than paying job.
