Minnesotan challenges MN CAIR director to public debate

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2017

For new readers: We often give readers an opportunity to post guest opinions here at RRW. This is one from a longtime Minnesota resident, Robert Carrillo, who attended the event last Saturday at the St. Cloud Public Library where CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) attempted to equate the internment of Japanese in the US (after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor) with what could happen to Somalis in the age of Trump.

The event backfired when many educated and fearless audience members pushed back (see full report here at WND).

I’m all in favor of holding debates with CAIR anywhere and everywhere CAIR is willing to show up—let’s educate more Americans!

From Robert Carrillo who was in the audience on Saturday, November 18th (edited from the original for space, so if it doesn’t flow so well at times, blame me!):

The Japanese American group folks were actually very interesting. Their plight during the war years (WWII) was difficult indeed. So was the same fate for German Americans and Italian Americans located on the East coast at that time also, and for the very same reasons. Please remember, that we were attacked at Pearl Harbor.

There was no instant communication. No internet. Only teletype, telephones, Western Union telegrams, and newspapers; all lagging behind events for days and weeks, or even longer. People were scared to death, and many rational precautions were taken to insure the safety (against potential domestic sabotage) of the American homeland, including “resettlement” of people of Japanese descent, German descent, and Italian descent… Sad, and difficult to be certain, but a historical fact.

 

As an aside it was a Democrat President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who signed that war time emergency order. I lived in Japan for a couple of years on a military base as a kid. I get it!

However, they are being used, and are being played. The conflating of these events (75 years ago), and the loaded race baiting/ religious baiting language used by Mr. Hussein, to connect the dots—which do not connect at all, was obvious, and disconcerting.

Outrageous fear-mongering poster wouldn’t you say!

The “Could This Happen Again?” program format, created by Jaylani Hussein (MN CAIR Director, comparing this 1940’s historical event to a modern-day possibility involving the Somali (Muslim) community, was, at best tacky and completely dishonest, and at its worst, a disgusting form of hate mongering manipulation by this man.

According to Hussein, all the interrelated (legitimate), and horrifying news stories, just in the past two years alone, involving Somali (Muslims), and legitimate and horrifying NEWS STORIES, reported here in the land of “Minnesota Nice” are lies, and false propaganda, intended to marginalize, demonize, and to intimidate the Somali “community” (the victims). Truly?

And, according to his highness of MN CAIR, they are the VICTIMS, and WE are simply not taking the time necessary enough to understand THEM. The ever-increasing crime and violence, and barbaric behavior on the part of their “community” membership is all fiction, and “We” will not be silenced nor intimidated by those attempting to spread such lies about us” says Mr. Hussein.

This man is what is called a “grifter”, and in my view, an extremely dangerous con man, completely unwilling to accept any responsibility whatsoever for the terrible actions of far too many within the ranks of his own “community”, or for his culpability in this tragic situation. In fact, he repeatedly denies that these real-life news stories (there are way too many of them now) are true, sadly.

Furthermore, he also refuses to accept the reality that in this world, and in any civilized society, “attitudes reflect leadership”, and that his lack of leadership only serves to foment additional violence, and additional blow-back from Minnesotans as a result.

In short, he is a completely irresponsible “slick talking”, delusional adult-child, and again, unwilling to accept the existence of his disgraceful part in this quickly unfolding tragedy here in Minnesota. He does neither he, nor his “community” of Somali’s in Minnesota, or Minnesotans in general, any good whatsoever, by behaving in this deplorable and irresponsible fashion. In fact, he accomplishes just the opposite objective, in my view, and I believe that to be intentional.

In short, and although I believe there are some exceptions within the community, I do not believe that they are here to get along as good neighbors at all (to assimilate). I believe, as has proved to be true in other parts of the world, especially Europe and the UK, and around the United States and Canada as well, that they are here to overwhelm the indigenous population, and to sow the seeds necessary to grow their “caliphate”. There are literally centuries of similar historical evidence to support this statement. In short, and for the most part, they simply do not play well with others.

One might also ask a logical and practical economic question here on the home front.

Why, given that in St Cloud, Minnesota and the surrounding area, with very limited industry, and very limited employment and business opportunity, would he (Hussein) not support a “moratorium” at this point (St Cloud MN, Councilman Jeff Johnson’s proposal), which would naturally limit (“time out”) the number of additional immigrants being transplanted into St Cloud, MN, so as not to bring in more people to compete for the very same jobs and limited opportunities his “community” are currently enjoying. Conclusion? He is obviously up to something else here.

One woman (nice lady I suppose) – “Bless her heart”, as one person I know would say – was actually willing to outline the “cultural reasons” why all Muslims (she) must pray 5 times a day. It is “required” says she…including in our taxpayer funded public schools. Well, that trumps (pardon the word) OUR US Supreme Court decision on that score in particular relative to “prayer in public schools”, I suppose, according to her. Well, there you have it! Done deal! We, (the “community”) demand it, and therefore, we are entitled to it!

somali wanted poster

Six of the eight the FBI is looking for in Minnesota. “Should be considered armed and dangerous.” https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seeking-info/providing-material-support-1

 

Then there is the refusal on the part of Somali-owned food service and restaurant businesses in St Cloud, MN, now refusing to allow lawful and required Health Department inspections of their establishments – AND, APPARENTLY, GETTING AWAY WITH IT! Those businesses should have been shut down yesterday.

As an aside, and since the FBI Minneapolis is presently looking for “8 Armed and Dangerous Men” (Somali) fellas as we speak, perhaps checking under the floor boards of those restaurants might be a clever, and rational idea at the moment. By the way, where did these young men get their guns and ammunition? There is the recently formed “Somali American [ Men’s ] Gun Club” in St Cloud now.

One fella, afterwards in the lobby of the St Cloud Public Library (also very wordy and slick – and oh so smooth—Jaylani Hussein’s right-hand man), told me, with considerable pride, that his father had 6 wives, and thus he had 22 siblings. OMG… Paleeeeeze.. …Just say NO! How many welfare checks does that add up to do you suppose?

Because I was not called on during the Q & A portion of the program (my arm is still sore from waving it), intentionally, to offer any commentary, and to ask some needed questions, I did have a chance to visit with a few concerned citizens afterwards.

I handed out more than a few actual and very recent news articles relative to very serious incidents, which have happened in Minnesota, which are much more than alarming. Not to my surprise, there were far too many people there, who had not even been made aware of these news stories at all. (Minnesota mainstream media is a disgrace – AND AFRAID in my opinion – as is true of many connected to Minnesota Law Enforcement and governance now).

 

This included the two incidents at the Mall of America on a recent Sunday (November 12, 2017) afternoon and evening. First was the 5th degree sexual assault (ride operator arrested and charged) of a woman by an amusement park ride operator, and then, the stabbing of two shoppers in Macy’s, both acts committed by member(s) of the Minneapolis Somali “community” (not a good track record here people).

Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN), is, I concluded, an arrogant huckster and a master con man, and he is smooth.

He was caught lying through his teeth several times, and we have him on tape. Can you say, no denunciation or condemnation of The Muslim Brotherhood, or Hamas, connected to CAIR?

His response more than once during the Q&A portion of his presentation was: “He will not be intimidated or silenced by such website-generated questions”, says he! “And, we carry a big stick” says he.

These people, and their home-grown SURROGATES (Not the Japanese American organization folks being played for fools here), are so clearly, Kool-Aide drinking – moneymaking – and race baiting pimps, and they too are very dangerous. Joseph Stalin referenced such people as “useful idiots”.

Jaylani vote

Relating to Mr. Jaylani’s condescending behavior and treatment of many of the women audience members in particular (a cultural problem I believe); demonstrating such disrespect and obvious disdain in his tone and manner throughout, while somehow believing that his deceptive delivery style had gone on unnoticed, I can almost hear Michael Corleone (Godfather Film) saying to his brother-in-law, Carlo, relating to his brother, Sonny’s (Santino) assassination…”Ahhh, that little farce you played with my sister: Did you think you could fool a Corleone?”

How about another panel discussion Mr. Hussein – face to face – with additional experts on the stage, who do understand the serious “Public Safety” and “Public Health” issues connected to this “Trojan Horse” problem WE ALL FACE, regardless of political affiliation, or personal philosophy? This, Mr. Hussein, is my standing invitation to do so, publicly, and with local and national news cameras and microphones rolling.

To: MN CAIR’s, Mr. Jaylani Hussein: Let’s have that public conversation (public panel discussion), and public debate, very soon. As US Supreme Court Justice Brandeis once said: “Sunlight is the best disinfectant”, my friend.

While we wait for Jaylani’s answer, please keep thinking happy “Minnesota Nice” thoughts … Please pass the brats – the beer – and the hot-dish…wouldja? …OK then, “Enjoy the weather!”

Stay tuned….

We are staying tuned as well—this should be good!

Be sure Lutheran Social Services of MN and a representative of the mayor/council of St. Cloud are on the panel with CAIR. And, presumably the St. Cloud Public Library will make a room available for the educational event.

Foreign Policy mag gives me credit for helping make the word “assimilation” in vogue with the Trump Admin

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 13, 2017

Update October 16th: James Simpson at Bomb Throwers takes on Ms. Wolfe and gives a good summary of the resistance movement going on across America.

I thought Foreign Policy magazine was supposed to be a credible, thoughtful place where foreign policy eggheads debated the big issues of the day.  I guess not!

In a story entitled:

The Trump Administration Wants Refugees to Fit In or Stay Out

writer Lauren Wolfe says this (below) about RRW (and the Center for Immigration Studies) showing a complete lack of understanding of the on-going debate raised to new heights about the use of the words “assimilation” and “integration” during Obama’s tenure.

This is a post I wrote to explain it to my readers.  Although it began before Obama, Obama’s open borders agitators were bent on getting the word “assimilation” out of use throughout the government. Trump has just brought it back.  If Ms. Wolfe is giving me credit, I’ll take it!

Screenshot (964)

Keep it up girls! Everytime I think that 10 years of putting out the facts about refugee resettlement is long enough, along comes someone like Ms. Lauren here to inspire me to keep going!

You will have to read the whole story yourself, but here is the part that appears in my alerts today.

(You see how these Leftwing ‘journalists’ write, and Foreign Policy goes along with it, using hot button words to describe me, and then she doesn’t even link to the post I wrote on the subect, so readers won’t see what I did say!)

Ms. Wolfe….

Indeed, the language in the directive is suspiciously similar to the language used online by white supremacists and members of the alt-right, including Ann Corcoran, who in June 2013 lamented on her nationalist website, Refugee Resettlement Watch, that the term “‘assimilation’ is no longer a part of government lexicon and does not even occur in dozens of recent reports and papers generated about refugee resettlement. The operative term in vogue now is ‘integration’ with its clear intent of maintenance of ethnic identity.” And it’s not just that Trump’s determination echoes the language of racists and hate groups — such groups seem to have played a direct role in this language modification. The Sept. 29 White House fact sheet cites as a source the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies as a hate group because of the “fear-mongering misinformation” it publishes about immigrants.

Do you know why she is so angry?

Hint: It is not about great-grand-pa!

She is angry because the Left has always controlled the language and they can’t stand it when we demonstrate that the jig is up!

Think Progress complains about Russian facebook pages that mention refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 8, 2017

Don’t get me wrong, I am not defending the Russian government (or Russian anybody). But, I do want to say that this is rich (and it makes me laugh!)—Soros/Podesta‘s Think Progress apparently doesn’t like the competition from skilled propagandists when propaganda is Soros’s greatest asset!

The implication in the story is that these “fake” Russian facebook pages are promoting fake news. We know in one case, the Starbuck’s story, there is nothing fake about the news. It happened. So, I guess Think Progress is really just furious (and jealous!) about the way the news is presented in order to have the most impact.

Here is Think Progress

How Russia’s Facebook ads inflamed America’s social tensions

Gun rights and same-sex marriage. Secession movements and refugee intake. Racial tensions and, of all things, dog lovers.

These are a smattering of the topics unearthed so far from Russia’s fake Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

[….]

Facebook, as it has over the past few months, remains hesitant to publicly identify the accounts they’ve since pulled down. But the handful of accounts reporters have uncovered thus far highlight how Russian actors viewed the types of schisms running through the U.S., and how best to incense, provoke, and enrage millions of followers.

[….]

The Russian “Secured Borders” account, which attempted to host an anti-immigrant rally in Twin Falls, Idaho, pushed material regularly regurgitating nativist talking points. According to a search through Google Cache, the “Secured Borders” page was fraught with the types of anti-migrant language familiar to the current administration.

[….]

The site appeared to espouse a special ire for refugees, especially those from the Middle East. One post from August claimed a link between increased refugee resettlement and higher rates of tuberculosis, complaining that refugees were allowed to be hired at Starbucks (which the site referred to as “Shariabucks”).

(LOL! Shariabucks! Clever!)

We reported on the research about the increasing rates of TB especially high in San Diego, and the special hiring event at Starbucks!  It happened.  So what is Think Progress‘s beef, that this real news was presented by Russian facebookers in a format that would get people’s attention?

Does the Soros Open Borders propaganda machine have some serious competition from sites like these? I think so!

Here is one of the facebook ‘ads’ (ads or just pages that anyone can set up?) that Think Progress wants you to treat as fake news (filed in my ‘Laugh of the day’ category):

Hitting a nerve (again!) at Right Wing Watch

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2017

I served up some red meat for the Right Wing Watchers here at World Net Daily with my comments about the Rohingya ‘crisis’ in Burma.  You can read the Watchers yourself!

miranda-headshot-2-250x250

RWW’s Miranda Blue, one of my biggest fans! @bluemir https://twitter.com/bluemir

How dare I (and others) challenge the Left Wing meme that the Rohingya are the helpless victims, pure as the driven snow, in the decades-old violent conflict between these two great religions of peace!

Watch for it!

The Syrian Muslim refugees were yesterday’s downtrodden, but the Left has moved on to the new flavor of the year—-the Rohingya—who we should support with millions of taxpayer dollars, or better still move to your neighborhoods ASAP.

For ambitious readers, I have over 200 posts on the Rohingya conflict archived here over TEN years. See for yourself what’s been happening there.

Oh, and see my other mentions at Right Wing Watch, here.  Miss Miranda sure didn’t like me telling Americans to have more babies!

This post is filed, not just in Rohingya Reports, but in my category ‘Laugh of the day!’ here.

St. Cloud, MN: a microcosm of the battle ahead for cities targeted by federal refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2017

The dramatic change in demographic makeup and the escalation of tensions in St. Cloud came to my attention in the earliest days of writing this blog when my then blog partner, Judy, wrote in 2008 about how Somali students were harassing a service dog to such a degree that it caused the disabled student to leave the school.

See that story here.

It is a good thing that we captured some of that story because it seems to no longer be available at the St. Cloud Times, which surprise, surprise, seems to be the case for many of the articles we have reported on from St. Cloud in the ensuing 9 years.

Recommendation!  I can’t do it here, but when I look at RRW’s archives on St. Cloud (that began with the dog abuse story) what immediately comes to mind is that what has happened to the city, now the third highest for the direct resettlement of Somalis in the state (Minneapolis and St. Paul, are numbers one and two), is that someone should do a documentary film or write a book about the transformation of a small American city that began with a meatpacking plant’s desire for cheap labor.

And what got me thinking about it this morning is this snarky editorial in the St. Cloud Times blaming the Christian haters for the tension there.

Before I get to that, take a look at my St. Cloud archive by clicking here.

A sampling of stories that you should look at include:

St. Cloud, MN Somalis turn up the stealth jihad heat, demand “human rights”

St. Cloud, MN a perfect example of community agitation to bring “change”

St. Cloud, MN update: refugees now arriving there directly from camps

 

On this last post, I checked data at Wrapsnet and St. Cloud was getting Somalis directly, immediately after 9/11, but I believe Lutheran Social Services MN (the resettlement contractor there) didn’t open an office in the city until 2010.

But, direct resettlement doesn’t tell the whole story because Minnesota leads the nation in secondary migration (Somali refugees placed in other states move to MN to be with their own kind of people.)

Here is some of the editorial from the St. Cloud Times showing its disdain for its Christian readers:

If Central Minnesota is going to look back on one year since the Crossroads Center attacks and ask about community relations and people getting along, we at least need to be honest.

Screenshot (864)

Photo used by the St. Cloud Times to illustrate its editorial. What! no photo of the Somali who stabbed ten at the local mall last year (a bit more hateful than words!).

When it comes to publicly exuding religious extremism in Central Minnesota and a lack of tolerance for others, it’s not from new immigrants nor Muslims. It’s from long-time residents. And Christians.

[….]

But there also is no denying a small, fervently vocal group of residents is working very hard to degrade new immigrants and Muslims — to the point this group wants to ignore the First Amendment and move from an American democracy to a Christian theocracy.  [WTH! These citizens with concerns are using the First Amendment as you chronicle below. It is the SC Times attempting to silence speech with this editorial!—-ed]

Witness the continued march of anti-Islam guest speakers making stops across Central Minnesota, typically as invited guests of certain Christian pastors.

The latest came Sept. 12-14 when Christian pastor and former Muslim Shahram Hadian spoke in St. Cloud, Browerville and Freeport. His topics: “Trojan Horse of Interfaith Dialogue,” “Islam’s Assault on the Constitution” and “Islam’s March Toward Supremacy.”

Witness the handful of local folks who have shown up regularly at recent St. Cloud City Council meetings to use the public input period to demand City Council members stop the influx of immigrants.

Never mind that this is a free country, and people can live where they choose. These speakers also want city leaders to go into public schools and other places, programs and organizations over which the city has no control.

So how many Christians in St. Cloud have attempted to murder Muslims?

(Don’t miss Leo Hohmann here on the feckless FBI on Somali refugee Adan who attempted to murder Americans one year ago in St. Cloud.)

But, somehow, to the editors at the St. Cloud Times, it’s the Christians (exercising their First Amendment rights!) who are the haters?

The editors continue…

To be clear, Dahir Adan stabbing 10 people at Crossroads a year ago was among the most horrific crimes experienced in Central Minnesota. And, yes, it certainly met the definition of terrorism.

It is unsettling that even a year later the FBI is not providing more details, especially clarity as to whether Adan was acting alone.

More here.

I’m frustrated! The story of St. Cloud needs to reach all Americans, so someone in the larger media needs to do a full investigation, or better still write a whole book or produce a documentary film so that all of America can be warned!

RRW weekly roundup for week ending September 15th…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2017

I haven’t posted a weekly roundup for awhile but I am this week so I can tell you for the umpteenth time to exercise your free speech rights while we have them.

Screenshot (55)

Artwork compliments SPLC

Prompting me to nag you again was the news from Oakland, Iowa I posted here minutes ago.

But, before I get to the nagging part, and since this is a round-up for the week, here are the top three most-read posts of the week (top posts of the last day are in right hand side bar):

Catholic Bishop Dolan says that the USCCB is not after more money when defending DACA kids, I beg to differ

White House could announce refugee ceiling for FY18 this week

Consider the optics Mr. President! Thousands of impoverished people arriving in the US when Americans are homeless

On that second post above, I’m looking for an announcement any hour (or any day). It was expected yesterday.  I’m reserving judgement on Trump until I hear what he decides on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

Let the nagging begin….

Come on people, stop being passive news readers!  Find a way to become informed (yes, read the news, but do some research too) and then get that information and your opinions out there through social media, letters-to-the-editor or by writing your own blog.  Believe me, getting your ideas and information out to others is very satisfying!

Or, if it is comfortable for you, put on local informational meetings like the one in Iowa this week.

If you sit in your house alone reading news and stressing over the future of America, you do no one any good (and you hurt yourself!).

The mainstream media is not going to report on certain issues, so you have to do it.

Honestly, the most important thing we must preserve to save America is our freedom of speech, and the more of you fearlessly exercising it, the harder it will be for those trying to kill those rights.

They will call you a few names! Who cares!

Endnote: You can see my facebook feed in the left hand side bar here at RRW, and my twitter feed is in the right hand side bar.  I recommend that you visit RRW from time to time rather than depending on that e-mail notification controlled by wordpress that somehow seems to mysteriously drop people on a regular basis.

Dems join CAIR to silence speech in Iowa small town

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2017

This didn’t happen in Berkeley, CA or St. Louis, MO but in a small Iowa town’s community center.

I’m just going to give you the opening paragraphs of the story, but everyone of you concerned about the future of  our country should read the jaw-dropping account of a public meeting where Democrat protesters and Council on American Islamic Relations representatives teamed up to disrupt a presentation organized by a former Muslim, a convert to Christianity.

This is America?

From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:

While all eyes were on the University of California, Berkeley, Thursday night to see if radical leftists could control their anger over the mere presence of a conservative speaker on campus, it was a gathering in a tiny Iowa town that attracted the attention of one of the left’s key allies – the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Screenshot (839)

Hurst, running for local elected office, was the leader (along with CAIR) of the infiltrators who disrupted the meeting requiring police presence so that speakers could continue. “He posted on Facebook suggestions that Guandolo, Christian and Gaubatz did not qualify for free speech rights under the First Amendment.”

CAIR, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-financing trial held in 2008, crashed a meeting in Oakland, Iowa – population 1,500 in rural Pottawattamie County.

Why such concern for what’s going on in a place so far off the beaten path?

Actually, it’s not unusual, not in post-Trump America.

CAIR has made it a top priority in the wake of President Trump’s surprising election victory to show up, challenge and cause confusion wherever the truth about Islam is being taught, say experts on the organization. CAIR is worried that a nation under the spell of Barack Obama for eight years may start to wake up to some startling facts and discover that Islam has become the government-favored religion, the only religion Americans are not allowed to criticize.

MiriamAmer_400x400

Miriam Amer, CAIR Iowa, was reportedly in attendance. https://twitter.com/mzmea611/

This is all part of CAIR’s nationwide campaign against “Islamophobia” which coincides with the United Nations’ anti-Islamophobia campaign being carried out on a global scale. Cities such as Boston, Minneapolis, San Fransisco and Nashville have all taken up the cause of defending Islam against verbal attacks increasing referred to as “hate crimes.”

The speakers who had CAIR worked up into a tizzy were John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz, partners in Understanding the Threat…..

Click here and read about what happened in Oakland, Iowa, a bigger deal then Berkeley where we have come to expect massive intimidation efforts to silence speech.

When is the last time you heard about Dems/Muslims holding public meetings crashed by people trying to silence their speech?  That’s right, you haven’t!

And, one more thing, if you have people like Hurst running for public office where you live, you better get out and oppose them!

Letter to media: “discredited” SPLC should be ignored

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2017

I signed an open letter to the media on Wednesday critical of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” listing.

Here is the story about that letter at WND:

They are among the rudders of America’s conservative movement.

rush-limbaugh-two-fingers-600

Limbaugh: “… all you have to do is disagree with them and you are called a hater.”

Names such as L. Brent Bozell III of the Media Research Center, Edwin Meese III of the Heritage Foundation, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William Boykin of the Family Research Council, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel and Michael Farris of Alliance Defending Freedom.

They are the ones media seek out for comment on important issues of the day.

Now they collectively are sending a message to establishment media: Stop using the “hit pieces” from the Southern Poverty Law Center in your reporting.

Forty-seven individuals and groups in a coalition Wednesday released an open letter to news outlets, calling on them to stop using data from the “discredited Southern Poverty Law Center.”

[….]

Just days ago, talk radio superstar Rush Limbaugh criticized SPLC as “perhaps one of the biggest hate groups on the left.”

“They tar and feather and slander right-wing groups and call them hate groups,” he said. “They’ve got a map on their website, and whenever a right-wing group that says or does anything that the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a bunch of leftist freaks, all you have to do is disagree with them and you are called a hater.”

Go here to read more, and see the text of the letter here.

No group here!

oreo 2

Looking for a hate “group” at RRW? Up until recently, Oreo is all you would find for group members!  However, we recently added a dog and that has created a whole new hate situation here at RRW. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/02/17/splc-announces-new-list-of-hate-groups-did-you-make-the-list/

Of course the SPLC has me listed as a hate “group,” but to show how shoddy and unprofessional their work is, I have no group.  I’m an independent blogger writing factual reports (with my opinions!) on the US Refugee Admissions Program and have been doing so for the last ten years.

What apparently got me in the crosshairs of the SPLC (besides being effective!) is this report (Resettlement at Risk) written by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (a federal refugee contractor) with the help of a large grant from the J.M. Kaplan Fund.

The report recommends that any local citizens questioning the federal placement of refugees in their towns and cities should be investigated. (You see we have no right to question what the federal government does or how it spends our money, or expect to be labeled “haters.”)

Conduct Research on Local Anti-Refugee Leaders:

The national refugee agencies should partner with groups such as Center for New Community and Southern Poverty Law Center to learn more about individuals and groups leading local efforts to resist resettlement, to determine if they belong to
organized anti-immigrant or anti-Muslim organizations or networks.

‘Government Slaves’ website gives list of 400 websites Google is attempting to chill, RRW is on it

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 1, 2017

Here is the news, hat tip: Judy

Government Slaves:

The war on truth has reached a fever pitch as Google has made it their mission to annihilate the independent media. The ‘New Media’ lead by the likes of Infowars, Breitbart, Natural News and many other great independent sites will have an uphill battle when it comes to getting their content in front of readers. Google has announced they will be doubling down on their ‘Orwellian’ practice of making stories disappear from their monopolistic search engine. Outlined in their Gestapo like 160-page handbook, Google describes exactly how they plan to suppress any information they deem unfit for readers.

Continue here, see the list and learn about other search engines to consider.

Screenshot of a portion of the list of 400. We are in good company:
