Cultural diversity enriching you Texas hicks. Does that include Amarillo taxpayers as well?

Amarillo”where subtle aspects of far-away cultures have taken root.”

We had just been reporting that Amarillo has deep problems with too many refugees to assimilate and educate and feed and house, and now here comes the news about how rewarding all of that is to the taxpayers of Texas.  You cowboys, hicks, rednecks or whatever the Left calls you are getting cultural diversity as a reward, and apparently some of you are lapping it up!

Didn’t one of our readers recently report that Texas is standing up against the feds and demanding State’s Rights be respected? No it isn’t, or we wouldn’t have stories like the one we reported just the other day written by a woman involved at Catholic Charities in bringing refugees to Amarillo who says that too many refugees strain the educational system of the city (she also admits that meatpackers have driven the resettlement!).

The US State Department ignored her concerns and sent hundreds there anyway!

Don’t you get it!  They are working to turn red states blue and more importantly they are working to plant Islam deep into your neighborhoods.

No, apparently, Texans don’t get it (or not enough of them anyway)!

From AP  (hat tip: Robin):

Despite its reputation for anti-immigrant politicians, Texas has led the nation in refugee resettlements for the last four years and continues to attract others who move here on their own, due in large part to a strong economy. Most are settled in large cities, but immigrant populations are also thriving in more remote areas like Amarillo, where subtle aspects of far-away cultures have taken root.

Judge Rowdy Rhoades: We welcome more mosques because the big meatpackers need the refugee laborers. (He didn’t exactly say that, but he may as well have!) Photo at an old story about over-crowded jails in Moore County.

“We’ve just adapted,” Moore County Judge Rowdy Rhoades said. His county, just north of Amarillo, will soon have a third mosque to serve the population of Somalis and people from Myanmar who work at a nearby meat processing plant. “They’re just here to provide for their family, like anyone.”

The U.S. State Department oversees the resettlement program, which annually places tens of thousands of people who have fled their countries in about 190 communities. In a year span that ended in September, Texas became the new home for about 7,200 refugees from more than two dozen countries, the majority from Iraq and Myanmar. Houston led the state with nearly 2,000 resettlements, followed by Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio.

Texas’ smaller cities have been accommodating the rest — including Amarillo, Abilene and Midland. In 2010 alone, Amarillo received 730 refugees, about the same as San Antonio and Austin.

Yet, the constant flow of refugees — hovering in the 400 to 500-person range in each of the last four years — has some of Amarillo’s leaders worried that the city’s resources are being overwhelmed. [Yet a few paragraphs earlier, the reporter says refugees are “thriving,” but I guess the taxpayers aren’t!—ed] Among the biggest concerns are getting students up to speed in schools and addressing the language barrier. Dozens of languages are now spoken in Amarillo, Mayor Paul Harpole said, and 911 calls have sometimes taken nearly 10 minutes.

Resettlement agencies have responded, deciding that refugees would only be placed in Amarillo if they have family ties.

There is more, read it all.

That last line is part of the scam!

Once your city is deemed “welcoming” and the feds (with their contractors***) drop off the “seed community” (their words!), then how can you possibly say no to the extended family without looking like uncaring boobs.  You can just imagine how the immigrant community will grow when “only” those with “family ties” move in!  And, by the way, the contractor is still paid by the head to bring in the family.

Pay attention to Qatar! Funding and promoting the Muslim migration to the West?

Blazing Cat Fur has a post yesterday entitled: ‘Al Jazeera ‘Voice of Qatar’ nags Europe and Canada about taking Syrian refugees’, with this commentary:

Qatar has been blamed for financing the Islamic fanatics that are making a solution impossible. They have also not taken in any refugees themselves.

Looks like a plan to Islamize the West.

It is true, that like Saudi Arabia, Qatar takes no refugees.  Read it all.

By the way, in 2013, Daniel Pipes penned a logical piece suggesting that Muslim refugees go to appropriate cultural zones and mentioned wealthy Qatar as one of the most desirable resettlement countries:

To place Syrians in “countries better able to afford to host them,” as Guterres delicately puts it, one need simply divert attention from the Christian-majority West toward the vast, empty expanses of the fabulously wealthy Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the smaller but in some cases even richer states of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. For starters, these countries (which I will collectively call Arabia) are much more convenient to repatriate to Syria from than, say, New Zealand. Living there also means not enduring frozen climes (as in Sweden) or learning difficult languages spoken by few, such as Danish.

Why don’t they take in their fellow Muslims?  Because this is not about humanitarian brownie points!  The migration of Muslims is about the Hijra—the responsibility of all Muslims to migrate and to colonize the West—to create the Islamic State worldwide.  They know it, why don’t we?


Stop Qatar Now!


Yesterday a reader directed me to this important website about the role Qatar is playing in funding the advance of the Islamic State throughout the Western world.  I have to admit, I hadn’t been focusing on Qatar, but I will now!  So should you!

Cologne: By turning off the lights, German Catholic Church repeats history, accelerates its death

Islamists world wide are surely gleeful to see this capitulation by the Catholic Church in Cologne.

We told you about demonstrations that should be taking place in Germany today against the Islamisation of the country, here over the weekend.

This is the first report I am seeing about what is happening today.  If you see more news as the day progresses please send us links!

By going dark today, I guess the church in Germany learned nothing from its dark past….

From Christian Today:

Cologne Cathedral will turn out its lights this evening in protest against the anti-Islamisation marches gaining momentum across Germany.

The marches led by the group Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (Pegida) have grown from a few hundred people gathering in Dresden in October, to 17,000 people at a rally in the eastern city just before Christmas.

The growth of the movement, prompted by the rise in immigration to Germany, has brought widespread condemnation. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in her New Year address: “I say to all those who go to such demonstrations: do not follow those who have called the rallies because all too often they have prejudice, coldness, even hatred in their hearts.”

Counter-protests have also emerged, which many Christians have joined, conveying German support for asylum seekers. The landmark Roman Catholic cathedral in Cologne is responding to fears that the movement will gain traction in other cities around Germany.

“PEGIDA is made up of an astonishingly broad mix of people, ranging from those in the middle of society to racists and the extreme right-wing,” cathedral dean Norbert Feldhoff told Reuters.

“By switching off the floodlighting we want to make those on the march stop and think. It is a challenge: consider who you are marching alongside.”


According to Reuters, an opinion poll last week found that one in eight Germans would join a Pegida march if the group organised one in their town.

Germany’s immigration figures are now second only to the United States, and around 200,000 people tried to seek asylum in the country last year, partly due to the influx from Syria. Dresden, however, has one of the lowest immigrant populations in the country.

Silence the critics of mass immigration of Muslims to Germany and one day the Cathedral in Cologne will be a mosque.

Sweden: Number of ‘unaccompanied minors’ soaring, small towns can’t handle it.

More on the ‘Invasion of Europe’.

The parasitic bird out-competes the host bird’s young.

Do you know about “brood parasites” in nature—you know, like the clever Cuckoo bird that lays its eggs in another bird’s nest, so that the unsuspecting host bird feeds and cares for the Cuckoo’s young often resulting in death to the host’s own offspring! That is what I think of every time I hear one more story about the  “unaccompanied children” flocking to the US, or in this case to Sweden.

Aren’t we just like the animals after all?   (I can hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth among my Leftwing critics!)

I know we have posted a lot on Sweden in recent weeks and days (click here for our complete archive), but it’s important because we can use Sweden as our ‘canary in a coal mine’ (oh geez, an ornithological analogy again!).  The country is small and the huge number of migrants they are permitting to live there will bring them to the brink sooner than larger western countries, so we can all watch and learn from what happens to Sweden.

It is not just the US that has ‘unaccompanied minors’ (the “children”) arriving en masse.  Here is a report about one unhappy community—Östra Göinge—in southern Sweden.

We reported on this Swedish policy here in 2013, when one of the “kids” murdered another of the “children” at a residential facility, not in Östra Göinge, but in another town.

From The Local (emphasis mine):

Around 7,000 unaccompanied refugee children arrived in Sweden in 2014, twice as many as the year before. And some parts of the country aren’t coping, according to reports.

A total of 81,300 people found refuge in Sweden in 2014, a jump of almost 50 percent from the 54,300 in 2013.

Among the refugees, 7,000 were children arriving without their families – almost double the figure from the previous year.

A law change that came into effect last January means that the unaccompanied minors can be sent to any municipality in the country, regardless of whether the municipalities want them or not.

Some consider the influx to be problematic, including Patric Åberg of the city council in southern Sweden’s Östra Göinge.

“We have taken in unaccompanied minors since 2011, but the problem is that the municipalities taking in many of them have to take in even more – and we think it’s devastating,” he told the TT news agency.

He says that his municipality simply doesn’t have the room to house so many children, and that other parts of Sweden should step up and take their share.

The municipality has requested an official court inquest into the matter.

“We think there is a gap here and that we can get around it. We want the system to be changed at a fundamental level,” he added.

There is a bit more about “flocking” at The Local.
