Detroit A Timely Lesson in Multiculturalism
10th December 2009
One of the great drawbacks of being an Australian is the apparent arrogance that has been fostered by the elite. While they have spent decades spinning the line in our education system, churches and advertising campaigns that were all the same, at the same time they do a backflip and suddenly take the line that while various experiments have failed in other parts of the world (decentralisation of mental health, economic rationalism and multiculturalism to name a handful), they wont fail here. Why? Because were different......
Well, experience has proven this a lie. Numerous incidents of suicides, brutal attacks by people suffering from a mental illness because the system chose to release them into the community without adequate support left to fend for themselves. It failed in the US, it is failing here. Institutionalised multiculturalism too has a long line of victims, those suffering through a grievous mistake made by the arrogance of self-proclaimed intellectuals and parliamentary MPs who do not have to deal with the reality of their decision. The pack rapes, the criminal activity, gang violence, the unnecessary financial strain trying to accommodate the needs of those who are never satisfied and demand more under the guise of being disadvantaged. Did the Brits, Poles, Italians, Greeks and Germans cry out for government support services when they came here?
The answer is a clear No!
For those who have not seen an October edition of the Weekend Australian newspaper, a report was made that Centrelink payments in the last 2 years have increased a massive 40% all due to the influx of illegal immigrants.
The following is an interesting article sent to me originating in the US, reproduced here for the purpose of discussion amongst members and supporters. While the Australian Protectionist Party is concerned about future generations of Australians and the problems we face here, it is also important to look at the events overseas, events which are the results of the same failed experiments tried in other countries. It is not enough to say It wont happen here.....
Many thanks to Mr. Wooldridge for his kind permission to reproduce this article.
For 15 years, from the mid 1970s to 1990, I worked in Detroit, Michigan. I watched it descend into the abyss of crime, debauchery, gun play, drugs, school truancy, car-jacking, gangs and human depravity. I watched entire city blocks burned out. I watched graffiti explode on buildings, cars, trucks, buses and school yards. Trash everywhere! Detroiters walked through it, tossed more into it and ignored it.
Tens of thousands and then, hundreds of thousands today exist on federal welfare, free housing and food stamps! With Aid to Dependent Children, minority women birthed eight to 10 and in one case, one woman birthed 24 kids as reported by the Detroit Free Press all on American taxpayer dollars. A new child meant a new car payment, new TV and whatever mom wanted. I saw Lyndon Baines Johnsons Great Society flourish in Detroit. If you give money for doing nothing, you will get more hands out taking money for doing nothing.
Mayor Coleman Young, perhaps the most corrupt mayor in America, outside of Richard Daley in Chicago, rode Detroit down to its knees. He set the benchmark for cronyism, incompetence and arrogance. As a black man, he said, I am the MFIC. The IC meant in charge. You can figure out the rest. Detroit became a majority black city with 67 percent African-Americans.
As a United Van Lines truck driver for my summer job from teaching math and science, I loaded hundreds of American families into my van for a new life in another city or state. Detroit plummeted from 1.8 million citizens to 912,000 today. At the same time, legal and illegal immigrants converged on the city, so much so, that Muslims number over 300,000. Mexicans number 400,000 throughout Michigan, but most work in Detroit.
As the whites moved out, the Muslims moved in. As the crimes became more violent, the whites fled. Finally, unlawful Mexicans moved in at a torrid pace. Detroit suffers so much shoplifting that grocery stores no longer operate in many inner city locations.
You could cut the racial tension in the air with a knife! Detroit may be one our best examples of multiculturalism: pure dislike and total separation from America.
Today, you hear Muslim calls to worship over the city like a new American Baghdad with hundreds of Islamic mosques in Michigan, paid for by Saudi Arabia oil money. High school flunk out rates reached 76 percent last June according to NBCs Brian Williams. Classrooms resemble more foreign countries than America. English? Few speak it! The city features a 50 percent illiteracy rate and growing. Unemployment hit 28.9 percent in 2009 as the auto industry vacated the city.
In this weeks Time Magazine October 4, 2009, The Tragedy of Detroit: How a great city fell and how it can rise again, I choked on the writers description of what happened.
If Detroit had been savaged by a hurricane and submerged by a ravenous flood, wed know a lot more about it, said Daniel Okrent. If drought and carelessness had spread brush fires across the city, wed see it on the evening news every night. Earthquake, tornadoes, you name it if natural disaster had devastated the city that was once the living proof of American prosperity, the rest of the country might take notice.
But Detroit, once our fourth largest city, now 11th and slipping rapidly, has had no such luck. Its disaster has long been a slow unwinding that seemed to remove it from the rest of the country. Even the death rattle that in the past year emanated from its signature industry brought more attention to the auto executives than to the people of the city, who had for so long been victimized by their dreadful decision-making.
As Coleman Youngs corruption brought the city to its knees, no amount of federal dollars could save the incredible payoffs, kick backs and illegality permeating his administration. I witnessed the citys death
from the seat of my 18-wheeler tractor trailer because I moved people out of every sector of decaying Detroit.
By any quantifiable standard, the city is on life support. Detroits treasury is $300 million short of the funds needed to provide the barest municipal services, Okrent said. The school system, which six years ago was compelled by the teachers union to reject a philanthropists offer of $200 million to build 15 small, independent charter high schools, is in receivership. The murder rate is soaring, and 7 out of 10 remain unsolved. Three years after Katrina devastated New Orleans, unemployment in that city hit a peak of 11%. In Detroit, the unemployment rate is 28.9%. Thats worth spelling out: twenty-eight point nine percent.
At the end of Okrents report, and he will write a dozen more about Detroit, he said, Thats because the story of Detroit is not simply one of a great citys collapse. Its also about the erosion of the industries that helped build the country we know today. The ultimate fate of Detroit will reveal much about the character of America in the 21st century. If what was once the most prosperous manufacturing city in the nation has been brought to its knees, what does that say about our recent past? And if it cant find a way to get up, what does that say about our future?
As you read in my book review of Chris Steiners book, $20 Per Gallon, the auto industry wont come back. Immigration will keep pouring more and more uneducated third world immigrants from the Middle East into Detroit thus creating a beachhead for Islamic hegemony in America. If 50 percent illiteracy continues, we will see more homegrown terrorists spawned out of the Muslim ghettos of Detroit. Illiteracy plus Islam equals walking human bombs. You have already seen it in the Madrid, Spain, London, England and Paris, France with train bombings, subway bombings and riots. As their numbers grow, so will their power to enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of government, first amendment rights and subjugates women to the lowest rungs on the human ladder. We will see more honor killings by upset husbands, fathers and brothers that demand subjugation by their daughters, sisters and wives. Muslims prefer beheadings of women to scare the hell out of any other members of their sect from straying.
Multiculturalism: what a perfect method to kill our language, culture, country and way of life.
