Memes, Muslim, and Petty: This photo is of a Somali woman in 19IO @chakabars She is fine! In 1899, Sheikh Maxamed came into conflict with the recently established Christian mission and also was involved in a petty dispute with the administration. With the current European and Ethiopian encroachment and with the example of the Sudanese mahdi (in Islamic eschatology, a messianic deliverer), these two incidents provided the seeds that rapidly developed into a major Somali insurrection. Maxamed did not appropriate the title of mahdi but assumed the title of sayyid (a descendant of the Prophet), and his followers were known as the dervishes. He displayed great skill in employing all the traditional tactics of Somali clan politics in building up his following, strengthening these with the call to national Muslim solidarity against the infidel colonizers. Arms and ammunition, denied to Somali in the past, became easily available through the ports of Djibouti and the northeastern coast, and the dervishes, although opposed by many Somali, who were branded as traitors to Islam, successfully weathered four major British, Italian, and Ethiopian campaigns between 1900 and 1904. The cumbersome British armies, hampered by their supply and water requirements, found the dervish guerrilla tactics hard to combat effectively, and, when in 1910 the British government decided to abandon its inconclusive, extremely expensive operations and withdrew to the coast, leaving chaos in the interior, Sayyid Maxamed seemed to have emerged victorious. A new policy was subsequently adopted, however, and, with the aid of an increasingly effective camel constabulary (whose founder, Richard Corfield, was killed at the Battle of Dulmadoobe in 1913), the dervishes were kept at bay until 1920, when a combined air, sea, and land operation finally routed them. The formidable dervish stronghold at Taleex, or Taleh, was bombed, but the sayyid escaped, as so often before, only to die of influenza a few months later while desperately seeking to rally his scattered followers. chakabars ❤🇸🇴 pic by @vintage_somalia

Apparently Congress doesn’t actually affirm the results until January 6, which means there will be at least a few people petitioning Congress to change their minds.</p> </blockquote> <p>Holy shit it’s almost like millions of people are unhappy that trump was elected for a myriad of legitimate reasons and are holding out hope that the failsafes built into our electoral processes might be used to keep an unqualified twitter addict out of the most powerful political office in the Western Hemisphere. </p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="284" data-tumblr-attribution="giphygiff:A8ztuzB-HcCSI5E1nLW7Jg:Z6qXVm22qt1kV" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/8112727175f26d9b323e9003e83602d9/tumblr_inline_oigtiq6QCS1qdaedo_500.gif"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/8112727175f26d9b323e9003e83602d9/tumblr_inline_oih4dcp2wF1rw09tq_500.gif" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="284" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/8112727175f26d9b323e9003e83602d9/tumblr_inline_oigtiq6QCS1qdaedo_500.gif"/></figure></blockquote> <p>Exactly, these things are failsafes. Changing a fucked up result are their purpose.

Sure lots of things are “possible” and you can hope all you want, all I’m saying is it’s wildly unrealistic. I’m not even sort of a Trump fan and I completely agree that there’s a myriad of reasons not to want him as president, but that doesn’t mean I’m wasting my time and energy waiting for a miracle. The idea that a Republican majority house will stage a mass insurrection and go against their party&rsquo;s nominee is little short of a fantasy. </p>
