South Africa: Blacks attack black migrants as “xenophobic” violence returns

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 9, 2018

It probably never went away, but several news accounts of recent days suggests the attacks on immigrants to the “Rainbow Nation” have picked up lately.

Soweto looting

South African looters in Soweto last month. They are destroying the shop of a “foreigner.”   https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2018-08-30-soweto-looting-death-toll-rises-as-violence-spreads-to-daveyton/

 

We have chronicled (see my archive here) the fact that South Africa’s black citizens are not welcoming to their fellow black Africans (they didn’t get the Nelson Mandela message I suppose!) from countries to their north.  They especially don’t like Somalis!

The international Hard Left (Commies, the Obamas and others) don’t like this bad news getting out broadly because they have much invested in the myth of South Africa as a “Rainbow Nation” now that the whites have been driven from power there.

And, part of that Leftist mythology is that anyone who has been discriminated against in the past couldn’t possibly discriminate against others, right!

As you read this remember these are not white people attacking the immigrants, they are black South Africans!  And, since they don’t want that fact to spread widely, you need to spread it widely!

Portland, OR: Refugee federal funding uncertainty causes Catholic Charities to fire some staff

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 9, 2018

Well, nothing new there you say! Right!

Portland refugees welcome

However, a couple of things in this otherwise ho-hum news story make it worth posting.

First, because Catholic Charities of Oregon (a refugee agency subcontractor of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops) isn’t getting in massive new waves of fresh refugee clients, they are focusing on better care for the ones they resettled earlier and that is a good thing.

However, when they list their efforts at job training and mental health counseling it got me thinking—who is paying for that!  

It is probably the taxpayer again, but because Catholic Charities of Oregon considers itself a church they are not required to file an IRS Form 990 so that we could find out exactly how many taxpayer dollars are flowing to them.

We know that in addition to the per head payment resettlement agencies receive from you there are myriad taxpayer-funded grants at the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, grants like this one, that keep resettlement contractors afloat. (I think I need to start having a look at those!)

Require all Catholic Charities to file Form 990s (they aren’t churches!) 

One more of many reforms that Congress (or the President) should undertake is to require these so-called ‘religious’ charities to file Form 990s.  (By the way, some Catholic Charities do file a Form 990, but the one featured at Catholic News Agency does not.)

To see the second reason I’m posting this story, continue reading!
