Australia ignores the UN and the New York Times, selects more Christian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 27, 2017

This is what we should be doing as well and it has begun with the Trump Administration restrictions on migration to America from certain regions of the world.

While Australia tells the UN they will pick their own refugees, they are happy to send these detained ‘asylum seekers’ (mostly Muslims) to the US as refugees.

I would be completely cheering for Australia if what Miranda Devine says is really happening, however, Australia is dumping those rejected asylum seekers (mostly Muslims) on US towns and cities (with the Trump Administration’s full cooperation), so I’m feeling less enthusiastic about this news (any news telling the UN to take a hike!) than I normally would.***

Columnist Devine tells UN to butt out of Australia immigration policy, here at the Daily Telegraph (hope you don’t get the paywall):

THE United Nations refugee agency was at it again last week pointlessly complaining about Australia’s sovereign right to secure its borders.

At a special press conference in Geneva, the UNHCR demanded the Australian government “live up to its responsibilities and urgently find humane and appropriate solutions” on Manus Island.

This is the organisation which runs refugee camps in the Middle East which are supposed to be for all persecuted, displaced people but which, for some reason, are almost entirely populated by Muslims.

By the way, almost all Syrian refugees admitted to the US in Obama’s last years in office were Muslims and we heard the same thing: the UN was picking our refugees and they were picking from their camps, thus mostly Muslims were being resettled.

It’s a curious demographic imbalance when Christians and other religious minorities are effectively being ethnically cleansed from the region, yet are not safe in UN camps because they are persecuted there by the same people who drove them out of their homes — that is if they weren’t crucified, beheaded or turned into sex slaves first.

But the UN turns a blind eye to the missing Christians on its books, declaring the imbalance a mystery, while attempting to shame countries like Australia to “do more”.

[….]

The New York Times reported these numbers as “Australia’s Immoral Preference for Christian Refugees”, with an opinion column arguing that “Selecting refugees based on their spiritual beliefs is a form of state-supported prejudice that secular societies like Australia have a moral obligation to reject.”

I didn’t see that New York Times piece, but they show their ignorance because I will bet a buck that the NYT cheered (or at least didn’t say anything about “state-supported prejudice”) when the US opened its doors to Russian Jews (calling them refugees), by the tens of thousands, a few decades ago.

And, I doubt they ever editorialized against the Lautenberg Amendment, here.

Devine continued:

What about the UN’s apparent discrimination against Christians in its refugee camps? If the UN wants to claim the moral high ground, it should get its own house in order first.

(Most) Minnesota media fails to mention attacker was a Somali man

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 27, 2017

I hadn’t noticed the story until Christmas day or so when Ann Coulter posted a series of tweets about the complete absence of any description of the man who attacked a woman walking home from work.  (Ann had the date of the attack wrong, but not the fact about the apparent media coverup.)

If you read Coulter’s ‘Adios America’ you know that this is a recurring theme in the book. The news media (not all of it, but most of it!) will turn itself into pretzels trying to hide the facts (and the nationality) about immigration status of migrants involved in crimes, often simply referring to him as “man.”  Or, LOL! if the attacker used a vehicle it becomes “truck killed…..”

 

Ann Coulter tweet

 

When I saw that tweet I went on a hunt for the stories too, but never saw any description either (I didn’t bother watching the one TV news bit, but I should have.)  I’ve noticed on several previous occasions that the text accompanying a broadcast story leaves out the key piece of information that someone has deemed politically incorrect to mention even when it was mentioned on air—that the alleged perp is an immigrant of some stripe.

Here Leo Hohmann at WND fills in the blanks (hat tip: Joanne):

Morgan Evenson was walking home in downtown Minneapolis about 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 when a black man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled and stabbed her repeatedly.

Morgan Evenson

The feisty 26-year-old frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.

At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to help. Her attacker – described as a Somali man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans – ran away.

Evenson was left bleeding on the curb with 14 stab wounds on her arms, neck and back. Her kidney was lacerated. She was lucky to survive the attack.

It happened while she was walking home from the Apple Store, where she worked, about eight blocks away from her apartment. That’s when the man attacked her for no apparent reason. Police, who have not made any arrests in the case, are calling it a botched robbery.

Police have called the case unusual for the level of brutality just to get a woman’s purse, leading some to wonder if the assailant didn’t want more than just a purse.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city’s largest newspaper, has been AWOL on the story.

The newspaper’s on-duty news editor, Maria Reeve, did not return WND’s calls Tuesday to inquire about why it went dark on such a brutal, unprovoked attack on a defenseless, unarmed woman walking home from work.

Other media, such as the Southwest Journal, have reported on the crime but left out the assailant’s full description as a Somali migrant.

Only one media outlet, local ABC News affiliate KSTP, included in its on-air coverage the fact that the victim described her assailant as Somali, but the station’s website article failed to mention that fact.

Continue here to read about other Minnesota criminal cases involving Somalis swept under the rug in Minnesota—America’s ‘canary in a coal mine’ about the advancing hijra.

Then here is our friend Deb Anderson:

“It was interesting the articles I read didn’t say anything about the police coming. Not a thing. Just sounds like the classic media template used in Europe,” Anderson told WND. “You had to get all the way through that KSTP [broadcast only] report to find out he’s Somali, and it was never mentioned in the other media outlets at all.”

That’s very disconcerting for someone who has been trying to educate Minnesotans about the pitfalls of kowtowing to the Somali community and its “civil rights” advocates at CAIR.

“It’s unofficial but Minnesota law enforcement agencies are enforcing, or at least tolerating, Shariah law. Most people don’t know it yet but the police are not here to protect the indigenous Minnesotans anymore,” Anderson said. “They have been incrementally changing their search policies and their use of force policies for years. We’re not being protected anymore. They’re protecting the Muslims, so it’s becoming increasingly like Europe. Yes, it’s here now.”

Go here for more.

If you missed my decade review yesterday, see it here, notice that three main issues jump out of those most-read posts since 2007:  Minnesota, Somalis and Europe.
