….And, then what?
This is not hot news just off the presses, but is buried in recommendations in a report that the J.M. Kaplan Fund and Suzette Brooks Masters commissioned with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and published in February 2013.
We first mentioned the report on how to counter the local backlash here just ten days ago.
Let me say at the outset! This is classic Saul Alinsky/hard left stuff on the part of HIAS and Suzette Brooks Masters and so it makes me laugh! If you are a “local anti-refugee leader” you should be proud to be identified by them, because it means you are getting under their skin and disrupting their plans to bring more leftwing voters and more Muslims to America!
Frankly, I’ve been bummed to not yet have been added to the Southern Poverty Law Center‘s hate groups list! (See Southern Poverty Law Center stands up for Hamas!).
Plea to SPLC, please add me to your list of hate “groups.” I would be honored!
One of the funniest things I ever read was Daniel Greenfield writing about how he and his cat became a SPLC designated hate group. Read it and laugh! Hey, I have a cat too!
My first response on finding out that I was now a hate group was to look around to see where everyone else was. A hate group needs the “group” part, and one man and a cat don’t seem to be enough. Even when the cat is a well known bigot who hates mice, birds, car alarms that go off in the middle of the night, the plumber and sudden noises.
But, I digress…..
Yippee! In Resettlement at Risk: Meeting Emerging Challenges to Refugee Resettlement in Local Communities, RRW does get a mention on page 10:
Online forums such as Refugee Resettlement Watch have emerged for individuals critical of the resettlement program to share their concerns. Many of the posts express disdain for the refugee resettlement program, particularly the resettlement of Muslim refugees, along with anti-Muslim views.
Their footnotes lead readers to this post we wrote in 2012 about Congressman Keith Ellison being their go-to guy in Congress!
Check out the report especially if you are in one of the three states with pockets of resistance identified by HIAS at that time (there are more now!)—Tennessee, New Hampshire and Georgia.
Now to the recommendations and especially the one suggesting that if you have problems with changing America forever by importing tens of thousands of third-worlders every year and more Muslims, you should be identified, investigated and then what?
Page 16: Recommendations
Adopting the following recommendations would help counter the refugee backlash and keep communities open and welcoming to refugee resettlement:
Read all of them, but note this one:
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.
And, so what if we do? You people belong to organized networks! This is America. You know that old-fashioned notion about freedom of association, it still exists!
Why do these Jewish groups want more Muslim immigration to America?
One of the great mysteries of our times is how the Jewish leaders of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and the J.M Kaplan Fund don’t get it—frankly, a large percentage of the world’s Muslims want them dead and facilitating Muslim migration to America is not going to make that Islamic imperative go away.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is also a Jewish-run organization.
Are they that naive?
About the photo: It is interesting that HIAS apparently invited a staffer in the now former Senator Lugar’s office who did some of the research on the program in Indiana that resulted in a damning GAO report on the refugee resettlement program. Were they, at this 2011 event, trying to convince him to move along—nothing to see?
