We need workers in South Dakota so we’re importing them

I have a bunch of stories I didn’t post when they first appeared, so count this as an oldie-but-goodie from a couple of weeks ago.

Here we have the political and business leaders (note Chamber of Commerce too) in Aberdeen, South Dakota attempting to get peoples’ minds right on the issue of ‘multiculturalism’ that comes with importing a work force from the third world.   Of course my first thought when I read this was what about the huge unemployment rate among American blacks and Native Americans (which abound in South Dakota)—don’t they want jobs?

From the Aberdeen News:

The mayor says—we just make critics feel guilty and suggest bigotry is behind any criticism in order to shut them up!

Refugees and immigrants may be able to help fill upcoming jobs in Aberdeen, and a presentation on Thursday detailed the process of how they get to South Dakota.

Amy Spaulding Zimbelman and Deb Worth, who work at the Lutheran Social Services Refugee and Immigration Center in Sioux Falls, spoke to a gathering at the Public Safety Center, hosted by Absolutely! Aberdeen, the Aberdeen Development Corp. and the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce.

In introducing Spaulding Zimbelman, Mayor Mike Levsen said that, for about the past five years, gatherings such as Thursday’s have been held to discuss minority populations and how people in Aberdeen will handle them.

Participants in those meetings, he said, have been trying to discourage the kind of “blatantly bigoted comments” that were prevalent in Aberdeen as recently as five or 10 years ago and are still said at times.

Levsen’s favorite response when he hears a bigoted remark is to ask, “Why would you say that?” That question, he said, makes the person who uttered the racist remark “defend the indefensible” or “makes them just shut up.”

The article doesn’t tell us how many refugees will be resettled in Aberdeen, but you can bet the other South Dakota cities have hit immigrant overload!

Lutheran Social Services is the only resettlement agency in South Dakota. Every year, the organization resettles 400 to 600 people in Sioux Falls and Huron.

They “must” get a job—that is a joke!

Immigrants are given money to support themselves for either four or eight months. During that time, they learn English and must get a job, Spaulding Zimbelman said. Immigrants even reimburse Lutheran Social Services for their plane fare after they get a job, she said.

“Our programs are meant to equip people to be self-sufficient. They’re not meant to be welfare assistance,” she said.

And, it is so annoying how these contractors twist the truth on the airfare reimbursement.  They didn’t pay the airfare for the refugees—you did!  The US taxpayer pays the airfare and then the contractors act as bill collection agencies for the US government and get to keep a portion of what they extract from refugees (who usually are not employed so don’t have anything to give back!).

Shelbyville propaganda film shown!  To soften up the town folks, that one-sided film from Shelbyville, TN was used to guilt trip anyone who might have some questions. (Golly gee, if some southern town can come to see the light, surely you South Dakotans can!)

Two documentaries were shown at the gathering. One was about life in Burma. The other was about Shelbyville, Tenn., a town that has had an influx of Hispanic and Somali people.

During showings of that film around South Dakota, “We have had people leave because they were frustrated by one viewpoint or another,” Worth said. She encouraged people to stay Thursday morning. No one left.

Let me tell you, a Leftwing Open Borders advocate is not going to walk out of the Shelbyville film, but someone who smells a rat and can see the bias just dripping from the screen might walk out.  So, what the heck is that “frustrated by one viewpoint or another” supposed to mean?

And, what is Levson talking about here?

Near the end of the meeting, Levsen was one of several people who spoke. He said that in documentaries such as the one about Shelbyville, the “truly unfortunate segment” will not speak on camera. It’s very difficult to reach the “5 percent of the incorrigibles who simply will not listen,” Levsen said.

Yes, there were some people who refused to be interviewed for the Shelbyville propaganda film because all they had to do was look into who was making it (smell that rat!) and know that it was not going to give a FAIR portrayal of the situation in a town roiled by the large number of Somalis who arrived there almost overnight supposedly to do work Americans won’t do!

“White plague” spreading in Europe, London is TB capital

A warning this week from the World Health Organization states that Drug-resistant Tuberculosis is reaching “alarming” (epidemic?) levels in Europe.

From Reuters:

LONDON, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis (TB) are spreading at an alarming rate in Europe and will kill thousands unless health authorities halt the pandemic, the World Health Organisation(WHO) said on Wednesday.

Launching a new regional plan to find, diagnose and treat cases of the airborne infectious disease more effectively, the WHO’s European director warned that complacency had allowed a resurgence of TB and failure to tackle it now would mean huge human and economic costs in the future.

“TB is an old disease that never went away, and now it is evolving with a vengeance,” said Zsuzsanna Jakab, the WHO’s Regional Director for Europe.

“The numbers are scary,” Lucica Ditiu, executive secretary of the Stop TB Partnership told a news conference in London. “This is a very dramatic situation.”

Neither the Reuters story or the official release from the WHO mentions the words “immigrant” or “immigration” but this report from Russia Today does.  Calling it the “white plague,” RT says the blame for the spread is immigration from countries with high incidents of TB and poverty (watch the video report too).  Update:  This story from Malta tells us that the UK is at the top of the list in many categories for the number of immigrants it allows to enter the country.

Known as the ‘white plague’ in 19th Century England, tuberculosis is now increasingly a modern-day menace for those living in the UK. Viewed as the TB capital of Western Europe, the illness outbreak in Britain has been connected to both poverty and immigration. But as RT’s Laura Emmet discovered, the infection is now spreading beyond those high risk groups.

Readers should know that refugees are admitted to the US with TB.  Of course the volags and the US State Department are always quick to say it’s “latent” TB and not “active.”   However, we all know that the volags often lose track of refugees three months after resettlement, so who is following refugees around to make sure they finish their course of meds?

Remember a Somali working in a Tyson Foods plant in Emporia, Kansas in 2007 died of TB in the plant, here.  Needless to say, it didn’t make the nightly news!

Hillary: You Libyan rebels are bad boys for discriminating against blacks…

….if you don’t stop it, we will just bring them here as refugees!

The US State Department this week released this rather meek rebuke to their Libyan rebel-freedom-fighting-democracy-seeking-Arab friends.   (See our earlier posts here and here about abuse by the racist rebels of migrant workers.)

The United States is deeply concerned about reports of arbitrary detention and abuse of sub-Saharan African migrants and refugees. We also understand that some Libyans are also being victimized based on the color of their skin. Nobody should be detained or harassed due to the color of their skin or their nationality, and measures must be taken to protect individuals from acts of violence.

We have welcomed the Transitional National Council’s (TNC) assurances of their commitment to safeguard the well-being of individuals throughout Libya and the TNC leadership’s cooperation with those international agencies engaged in identifying and assisting those at risk and/or detained, including the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the International Organization for Migration. We look forward to prompt implementation of these measures.

‘We’ll show you, we will just ship the tens of thousands of African migrant workers to Europe or America‘ (our meatpackers can use them anyway and we will get more campaign contributions for Obama!)—so take that!

The United States is working with its international partners to facilitate safe passage out of Libya for those foreign nationals, including sub-Saharan African migrants, who wish to depart for their own safety.

The next thing you know John Podesta and the Center for American Progress will be calling for an airlift (as they did in 2009 for Iraqis)!

It is maddening, Hillary and Obama’s girls drag us into another conflict in a Muslim country and we get refugees out of it!

Addendum:  Some related links which I don’t have time to post (Libya intervention looks hazy in hindsight, here). And as of yesterday Gaddafi isn’t finished yet in Libya, here.  So, is this Obama’s aircraft carrier moment?

Oh, and here is one more interesting bit of news, the US State Department had previously listed the “rebels” as a terrorist group.
