Losing our sons, and losing Nashville
Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 25, 2012
Not just Nashville, but every American city where the seeds of Jihad have been planted.
Our friend Susan Falknor has reviewed the powerful documentary film—Losing our Sons—recently featured on Gov. Mike Huckabee’s popular TV news and commentary program.
Read Falknor’s whole review of the film at Blue Ridge Forum. Here is the nub of the story:
Two families from the American heartland lost their sons when four 7.62 mm rounds rang out at an Army-Navy Career Center in a Little Rock shopping mall June 1, 2009. This is their story, narrated largely by the fathers of these soldiers through on-screen interviews.(Click here for trailer.)
One father is Melvin Bledsoe, a black citizen of Memphis, owner of a small business, the Blues City Tourist Company bus tours. His son, Carlos, who by 2009 was going by the name of Abdulhakim Muhammad, was arrested immediately for the Little Rock shooting. He testified to his Jihadist motives in a letter to the judge, and received a life sentence without possibility of parole.
What happened to Nashville is happening in many cities across the United States thanks largely to the US State Department and the “church” groups being paid to bring refugees to your towns.
When Carlos Bledsoe arrived in the country music capital of America in 2003 to go to college, “the city was already changing,” according to the film. Nashville was one of the American towns chosen under the 1980 Federal Refugee Act – which launched a program now grown to a billion-dollar budget with buy-ins from numerous nonprofit resettlement agencies — to receive flows of immigrants from war-torn areas such as Somalia, and the Kurdish region of Iraq.
Unlike most immigrants, refugees are entitled to welfare. They are supposed to receive employment assistance and other benefits from often-faith-labeled-but-government-funded nonprofits. As Don Barnett’s exhaustive analysis (CIS) says of the flawed refugee resettlement program:
“…The assimilation model has been completely abandoned in favor of an enforced multiculturalism. This missed opportunity may be the biggest tragedy of the irresponsibility of the contractors such as Catholic Charities . . . and its parent, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the leading resettlement contractor.”
