That is the conclusion of an excellent piece by Hillsdale College’s Michael Anton writing at the American Mind. Hat tip: TX2Guns
Just a reminder, most of the Afghan evacuees are not yet determined to be legitimate refugees, so try to refrain from referring to them as refugees.
As I said yesterday, most are being paroled into the US, and after they are here they will be supplied with lawyers to help them figure out how to get that most-prized immigration status—refugee—which opens the door to a cornucopia of welfare goodies and eventually citizenship.
The demand to resettle Afghan refugees brings the war home.
Closing paragraphs, please read the whole article:
Mass resettlement of Afghans would thus seem to be a recipe for social chaos and unrest greater than any America has yet experienced—precisely at a time when we’re already experiencing the most since the 1960s. Who would choose this for their own country? We can be forgiven for assuming that our rulers are intentionally trying to hurt us.
Indeed, I don’t think that possibility can be altogether ruled out. Shortly after the Afghan withdrawal debacle became impossible for even the most brazenly dishonest regime hack to deny or spin, one of them shifted tactics: “Afghanistan,” he thundered, “is your fault.” By “your,” he meant ours—yours and mine, the American people’s.
The ruling class is angry that the people demanded an end to their idiotic, life-wasting failed experiment. They’re embarrassed at having been exposed as fools and failures. Some are bitter that the war-profiteering gravy train that kept them so well-fedfor so long has come to an abrupt and ignominious end.
Instead of taking stock and asking themselves tough, necessary questions, they’re lashing out. They want to punish us for our justified doubts and lack of enthusiasm. They want to deflect blame for their own failure. They know, or should, that taking in refugees from a very poor, very tribal, very backward, very extremist society is a recipe for disaster. But they also know that none of these “refugees,” you can bet, will be settled in Cambridge, or the Vineyard, or the Upper West Side, or Georgetown, or Chevy Chase or McLean, or Berkeley or Palo Alto, or Santa Monica or Silverlake.***
No, they’ll be going to heartland communities where what’s left of the middle class lives, to put stress on local schools, hospitals, police departments and other social services. And allowed to live as they damned-well please, free of the laws and regulations that tie honest citizens in knots, that are only enforced against us.
It’s hard not to conclude that our government hates us. That conclusion, at any rate, fits the observable facts of its actual behavior.
Note that Anton reference’s an article I commented on here in July:
*** No, they won’t be placed in upscale communities where the elite reside, but you can get some idea of where they will go by having a look at this map at the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center.
Unfortunately it has not been updated this year (post Biden), so we don’t know the new additional target communities in middle America (yet).
And, although as I have been saying, most Afghans entering the US, or expected to enter shortly, are not legitimate refugees, the only network Biden’s team will have to distribute them is the established refugee resettlement contractors whose web of subcontractor locations are depicted on the map below.
You can find a clearer copy here, but there is definitely no Chevy Chase, Martha’s Vineyard, Georgetown, or Santa Monica listed.
I hope to have a follow-up shortly to explain to new readers that there is likely only one way you will know if your town has been ‘chosen’ in addition to the map above.
This Invasion of Europestory should be a wake-up call to Americans as the Biden administration gets ready to begin airlifting Afghan ‘refugees’ to the United States.
And, I suspect the administration is counting on you being so distracted by the southern border invasion you won’t notice those being flown in on the taxpayer’s dime from one of the most backward countries on earth.
An articleby Dr. Cheryl Benard at The National Interestis must-reading as we open our doors to more Afghans.
(It may look like a lot, but I have only snipped a small portion of the detailed account of Afghans creating chaos and fear in Austria. Emphasis below is mine.)
I’ve Worked with Refugees for Decades. Europe’s Afghan Crime Wave Is Mind-Boggling.
Afghans stand out among the refugees committing crimes in Austria and elsewhere. Why?
In 2014, when waves of refugees began flooding into western Europe, citizens and officials alike responded with generosity and openness. Exhausted refugees spilled out of trains and buses to be met by crowds bearing gifts of clothing and food, and holding up placards that read “Welcome Refugees.”
This was a honeymoon that could not last. Some of the upcoming difficulties had been anticipated: that the newcomers did not speak the local languages, might be traumatized, would probably take a long time to find their footing, and had brought their ethnic, religious and sectarian conflicts with them, causing them to get into battles with each other. All of these things happened but—as Angela Merkel promised—were manageable. “Wir schaffen das.”
But there was one development that had not been expected, and was not tolerable: the large and growing incidence of sexual assaults committed by refugees against local women. These were not of the cultural-misunderstanding-date-rape sort, but were vicious, no-preamble attacks on random girls and women, often committed by gangs or packs of young men.
At first, the incidents were downplayed or hushed up—no one wanted to provide the right wing with fodder for nationalist agitation, and the hope was that these were isolated instances caused by a small problem group of outliers. As the incidents increased, and because many of them took place in public or because the public became involved either in stopping the attack or in aiding the victim afterwards, and because the courts began issuing sentences as the cases came to trial, the matter could no longer be swept under the carpet of political correctness. And with the official acknowledgment and public reporting, a weird and puzzling footnote emerged. Most of the assaults were being committed by refugees of one particular nationality: by Afghans.
This is not an article that has been fun for me to write. I have worked on issues related to refugees for much of my professional life, from the Pakistani camps during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan to Yemen, Sudan, Thailand, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Lebanon, Bosnia, Nicaragua and Iraq, and have deep sympathy for their plight. But nowhere had I encountered a phenomenon like this one. I had seen refugees trapped in circumstances that made them vulnerable to rape, by camp guards or soldiers. But for refugees to become perpetrators of this crime in the place that had given them asylum? That was something new.
A few weeks ago, the Austrian city of Tulln declared a full stop to any further refugee admissions. As the mayor made clear, that decision was aimed at Afghans, but for legal and administrative reasons it could only be promulgated in a global way. That had not been the city’s intention—to the contrary, it had just completed the construction of an expensive, brand-new facility for incoming asylum seekers, which would now, the mayor declared, be given over to another purpose. His exact words: “We’ve had it.” The tipping point, after a series of disturbing incidents all emanating from Afghans, was the brutal gang rape of a fifteen-year-old girl, snatched from the street on her way home, dragged away and serially abused by Afghan refugees.
It took a while for the pattern to be recognized because, until recently, western European media deliberately refrained from identifying an assailant’s refugee or asylum status, or his country of origin. [Sounds familiar—ed] Only when the correlation became so dramatic that it was itself newsworthy did this policy change. At that point, it became clear that the authorities had known about, and for political reasons had deliberately covered up, large-scale incidences of sexual assault by migrants. For example, a gang of fifty Afghans who terrorized women in the neighborhood of the Linz train station had been brushed off by a government official with the remark that this was an unfortunate consequence of bad weather, and that once summer came the young men would disperse into the public parks and no longer move in such a large, menacing pack. The public was not amused.
Wow! The Austrian media is naming criminals’ ethnic origin!
I could write the same report about Sweden, Germany, or any other country of asylum in Europe, but I am focusing on examples from Austria because that’s the European country I come from and know best. So let’s take a look at the Austrian press. This from Österreich, the daily newspaper distributed for free on public transit and thus read, basically, by almost everyone. Front page: Afghan (eighteen) attacks young woman at Danube Festival. “Once again there has been an attempted rape by an Afghan. A twenty-one-year-old Slovak tourist was mobbed and groped by a group of men. She managed to get away, but was pursued by one of them, an Afghan asylum seeker who caught her and dragged her into the bushes. Nearby plainclothes policemen noticed the struggle and intervened to prevent the rape at the last moment.” Page ten: “A twenty-five-year-old Afghan attempted to rape a young woman who was sitting in the sun in the park. Four courageous passersby dragged the man off the victim and held him until the police arrived.” Page twelve: “Two Afghans have been sentenced for attempting to rape a woman on a train in Graz. The men, who live in an asylum seekers’ residence, first insulted the young woman with obscene verbal remarks before attacking her. When she screamed for help, passengers from other parts of the train rushed to her aid.”
Sounds like Islamic supremacism, the Hijra, straight up!
This brings us to a third, more compelling and quite disturbing theory—the one that my Afghan friend, the court translator, puts forward. On the basis of his hundreds of interactions with these young men in his professional capacity over the past several years, he believes to have discovered that they are motivated by a deep and abiding contempt for Western civilization. To them, Europeans are the enemy, and their women are legitimate spoils, as are all the other things one can take from them: housing, money, passports. Their laws don’t matter, their culture is uninteresting and, ultimately, their civilization is going to fall anyway to the horde of which one is the spearhead. No need to assimilate, or work hard, or try to build a decent life here for yourself—these Europeans are too soft to seriously punish you for a transgression, and their days are numbered.
And it’s not just the sex crimes, my friend notes. Those may agitate public sentiment the most, but the deliberate, insidious abuse of the welfare system is just as consequential.Afghan refugees, he says, have a particular proclivity to play the system: to lie about their age, to lie about their circumstances, to pretend to be younger, to be handicapped, to belong to an ethnic minority when even the tired eye of an Austrian judge can distinguish the delicate features of a Hazara from those of a Pashtun.
Well this isn’t going to happen! Rigorous vetting by the Biden administration to weed out the degenerate young males!
…the relevance to U.S. refugee policy is sadly obvious. It will require rigorous vetting indeed to weed out such deeply disturbed, degenerate young males whose willingness to be deceptive is so pronounced and whose motives are so irrational.
Which brings me to a final theory being vented in Austria: that these destructive, crazed young men are being intentionally infiltrated into western Europe to wreak havoc: to take away the freedom and security of women; change patterns of behavior; deepen the rifts between liberals, who continue to defend and find excuses, and a right wing that calls for harsh measures and violent responses; to inflict high costs and aggravation on courts and judicial systems and generally make a mess of things.
They don’t need a “deliberate plan,” their religion is the plan! And, they know the great replacement is underway!
For the record, I am not convinced that there is a deliberate plan behind this, but I do agree that angry and unstable young men are susceptible to destructive paths. Those paths can lead to ideological extremism and terrorism, or to the formation of gangs and packs that attack, harm and destroy. As we have seen, presently many of their attacks are inept and easily blocked by random civilian passersby. But they will get more skillful over time, and Europe had best develop a defense against them.
The Left has to do some “hard thinking!” Good luck with that!
Finally, the Left has to do a bit of hard thinking. It’s fine to be warm, fuzzy and sentimental about strangers arriving on your shores, but let’s also spare some warm, fuzzy and sentimental thoughts for our own values, freedoms and lifestyle. Girls and women should continue to feel safe in public spaces, be able to attend festivals, wear clothing appropriate to the weather and their own liking, travel on trains, go to the park, walk their dogs and live their lives. This is a wonderful Western achievement, and one that is worth defending.
When reader Paul pointed out to me that inan opinion piece from Billings Montana entitled: “Guest opinion: Billings should welcome refugees in our community,” included this paragraph it sent me on a trip down memory lane (something I plan to do more of as my 14th year writing this blog begins on Thursday)!
It would be naïve to believe that all Montanans agree with us, but we suspect many concerns about refugee resettlement are rooted in misinformation. Refugees are distinct from those seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. Refugees come at the invitation of our federal government and, as a Heritage Foundation report notes, already “undergo more vetting than any other immigrants to the U.S.”It’s a credit to our government that not a single one of more than 3 million refugees resettled since the Refugee Act was signed in 1980 has taken the life of a U.S. citizen in a terrorist attack.
I don’t have the energy right now to go into the subject of the traitors at the Heritage Foundationor the fact that the UN picks our refugees, but I am sick to the death of the line I highlighted above. And, never mind the fact that the Biden Administration is softening its stance on vetting after Trump put in place stricter vetting.
Note the qualifiers: “taken the life of a U.S. citizen in a terrorist attack.” Well, they sure as hell have come close! And, if you count the Boston Bombers who were refugees via the asylum system, they sure did kill Americans.
And, more importantly remember that some terrorist attacks were planned by refugees but thwarted before they could execute their plans.
Without a doubt, some refugees have, sure as hell, raped Americans and committed other violent crimes.
They have killed some of their own fellow refugees as well, but apparently the refugee apologists don’t care about whether they kill foreigners or their own family members. I guess they don’t count!
Back in 2017 I put together a list of some refugee terror attack plans and included additional crimes perpetrated by the thoroughly “vetted” refugees!
(On some older posts that were initially lost when I was deplatformed a couple of years ago, the formatting isn’t the greatest, but the information is still there.)
The federal refugee contractors and their hundreds of subcontractors are out now frantically searching for new unsuspecting communities willing to ‘welcome’ some of Biden’s promised 125,000 refugees expected to begin arriving on October first of this year.
Thus you may see pieces in your local paper, like the one above from the Billings Gazette which are for the purpose of softening-up your town or city so citizens don’t resist their plans to change America by changing the people.
For new readers, here are the nine major contractors. So far the International Rescue Committee has its hooks in Montana.
Update: I went on a search this morning to see if US corporate media was reporting on this story. Not seeing much. But, here is a publication that says he killed and wounded women, and one boy was injured.
As usual, even as it was reported that he shouted “Allahu Akbar” when he proceeded to knife to death perfect strangers, authorities were still reporting that his motive for the attack is unclear, and besides he is just another mentally impaired Somali doing what Somalis do!
The UK Daily Mail has their usual big spread including videos and photos of the horrific scenes in an iconic German city.
The Daily Mailsays he was welcomed to Germany during the migrant invasion of 2015, so see this first!
African ‘Refugee’ Charged With Molesting 7-Year-Old Boy In Washington State
He looks like it….however…
I put my secret decoder ring to work and couldn’t find a second published report to confirm his refugee status.
So, until we get further confirmation we will assume he is a refugee and is from Somalia. As I said on previous occasions if law enforcement and the media want to play games and keep immigration status a big secret, then I’m just going to assume the worst and let someone correct me.
Man arrested for allegedly licking and kissing 7-year-old boy
KENNEWICK, Wash. (KEPR) — One man is behind bars, accused of licking a 7-year-old’s bottom, and kissing him, according to police in Kennewick, Wash.
Ibrahim Hire Salat, 32, is facing suspicion of child molestation in the first degree.
Kennewick police say on Saturday, just before 11 a.m., officers were called to an apartment complex off Olympia near the Grocery Outlet.
The mother of the child told police that her son came crying to her, saying that a man had touched his bottom and kissed him on the cheek.
She said that after consoling him, he told her that he had licked his bottom, kissed him, and then offered to buy him a soda.
Police say Salat was detained and says the boy identified Salat as the man that touched him and licked him.
A judge set bail at $75,000.
If Salat is a refugee, no matter from where, my question is, why are we admitting men like him—men who are either unable to live by our laws and culture or are too mentally impaired to understand.
He is headed for a brutal life here in America and I wonder whether, for his sake!, he should have been left in Africa.
Where are the do-gooders, the humanitarians (ha-ha!), who ‘welcomed’ him to Washington, and are they coming to his rescue now? I doubt it.
