I don’t even know what Vice magazine is, and don’t care as long as they bring more attention to the issue of the campaign by the nine major federal resettlement contractors to get 65,000 mostly Muslim Syrians distributed to your towns and cities before Obama leaves office.
Reporter Meredith Hoffman makes me laugh. She doesn’t understand that she has admitted, as she has fun with my appearance, that in fact the NO borders activists must be very worried about the impact we are having.
As she says, my Youtube video has passed the 700,000 viewer mark (see one incredible comment from a former refugee agency employee, here).
Thanks to Meredith and Vice we may reach our 1 million viewer goal!
It would be wonderful if she would mention that ‘granny’ has a second video about the Senate ‘Jihad Caucus’ and 65,000 Syrians!
After her ‘humorous’ opening she gives us some important new information (see below).
Vice (dumb title: ‘Why are Republicans so scared of Syrian refugees’). Heck she does report that Obama’s FBI is scared too! Emphasis below is mine:
Superimposed upon the cartoonish image of a lush neon pasture, Ann Corcoran stares through horn-rimmed glasses at her YouTube audience. The white-haired right-wing blogger is unruffled, almost grandmotherly, as she warns about a dark and insidious threat: Muslim refugees.
“I’ve become increasingly alarmed by the percentage of problematic Muslim refugees distributed around the US,” Corcoran informs viewers. “Many are forming cities within cities…where mosques are being built to consolidate, train, and promote a growing American Muslim population and its Islamic supremacist doctrine called Sharia.”
Corcoran, who runs the inflammatory anti-refugee blog Refugee Resettlement Watch, goes on to give a conspiracy-laden account of how the US government (with the help of the United Nations and shadowy Islamic charities, of course) takes in refugees from predominantly Muslim countries, and secretly “seeds” them in unsuspecting American communities.
The threat, she warns, is only getting worse: “Soon we will be settling Syrian Muslims in large numbers,” Corcoran says. “If you don’t help counter [this], we are, in my opinion, doomed. Over time this migration will be more devastating to your children and grandchildren than any terrorist attack could ever be.”
The video—which has been viewed more than 700,000 times since it was first posted in April—stirred up familiar strains of Islamophobia around the right-wing blogosphere, igniting a wave of alarm over Muslim refugees, in particular Syrians who have fled country’s five-year civil war. Both politicians and anti-refugee activists have loudly fought efforts to resettle Syrians in the US, amounting to what analysts say is the most vocal and active opposition to a refugee group in years.
Obama’s FBI testified that the Syrians cannot be properly screened:
Security analysts disagree on whether the Syrian refugee program could actually pose a terrorism risk. At a February House Homeland Security Committee hearing, Michael Steinbach, the FBI’s assistant director for counterterrorism, questioned whether the US had the ability to collect adequate intelligence to screen new Syrian entries, noting the lack of on-the-ground intelligence collection in the war-torn country.
“You are talking about a country that is a failed state, that does not have any infrastructure so to speak,” Steinbach told the congressional panel. “So all the data sets, the police, the intel services, that you would normally go to and seek that information, don’t exist.”
Holy cow! Last we heard the US State Department had 3,000 Syrians in the pipeline (selected by the United Nations) and now it is up to 14,000!
A total of 14,000 applications are currently being processed, Henshaw [Simon Henshaw, a spokesperson for the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Migration and Refugees] said, but added that applications will likely move more quickly in the future. “We’ve been getting referrals [from the UN!—ed] for a little over a year now but we have a very slow process,” he said. “We have to build up resources and get people on the ground.”
Remember readers, the UN is not saving Christians! And the federal contractors which include the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society are resettling mostly Muslims into your towns and cities.
Heads up Idaho, you are mentioned in Meredith’s story too! Good work!
