    I'm going to start a thread here to discuss the various absurd and unreal stories we all come across in today's Amerika on a daily basis, and keep it going like the Crime Thread or the Commercials We Hate.

    Let me get started with this story:

    Helping Immigrants Warm To Winter

    PORTLAND, Me. — Charlene Masengu left the Democratic Republic of Congo late last year, hoping to get asylum status in the United States after a wave of political violence made life at home unbearably dangerous. She made it to this coastal city last month, just before it was covered in more than 30 inches of snow, and she wondered, briefly, whether she had made a mistake.

    “Deadly!†Ms. Masengu, 29, said in French, shaking her head as she remembered the snowstorm. “I didn’t feel good at all. I wanted to leave.â€

    Ms. Masengu was squeezed, notebook in hand, into a plain conference room at the city’s center for refugee services. She and dozens of others were here to be schooled in a central piece of Portland’s cultural curriculum for its growing population of new arrivals, many of whom are asylum-seekers from Central Africa: the art of handling a Maine winter.

    The instructor, Simeon Alloding, a human services counselor here, sat at the front of the room, ticking off winter’s many perils as clip art images of a penguin and an elephant decked out for cold weather hovered in a PowerPoint presentation behind him. “Everyone here has fallen, right?†Mr. Alloding asked as he began a discussion on how to navigate the city’s icy sidewalks. “You don’t walk too fast, you don’t take long steps. You take shorter steps,†he said, dispensing advice that even the most seasoned New Englander would do well to remember.

    The workshop is part of a series of courses that new arrivals here seeking general assistance are required to take. On this slushy morning, there were more attendees than could possibly find seating, and late arrivals clustered around the entrances to the room, many still wrapped in winter coats and hats despite the stifling heat of the room.

    Northern New England would seem an unlikely destination for immigrants from Central Africa, but many new arrivals — who include a steady number of refugees and a rapidly growing number of asylum seekers, who say they are refugees but whose claims have not yet been evaluated — are drawn here by referrals from family and friends, as well as the relatively low crime rates [NOT FOR LONG] of this region’s small and manageable cities. “Big cities are more challenging, and more terrible to people who have nothing, including language,†said Mr. Alloding, who came to Portland himself after leaving Sudan in 1995.

    Still, for this growing population, winter — especially during stretches like the last several weeks, when heavy snowfalls have come one after another — compounds the difficulties of life as a new arrival. Amel Joudha, an Iraqi refugee who arrived here in mid-February, said she initially stayed in a shelter that provided her with space only in the evening, leaving her to navigate cold streets during the day. “I was sick,†Ms. Joudha said, in Arabic. “The streets were icy.†She said another Iraqi saw her on the street and took her in; she has since found an apartment.

    Mr. Alloding asks his students to list the clothing they need to stay warm in frigid conditions.

    “Socks,†says Abraham Conde, who is from Nigeria, with some conviction, before Mr. Alloding explained the merits of scarves and the absolute necessity of boots. He showed the class his long johns, peeking out from beneath his sleeves, and reminded his students to send their children into the snow with an extra pair of gloves in their pockets.

    “Children are forgetful — they get warm and they throw everything away,†he warned.

    More than anything, he says, his students have to learn how to bring the weather into their daily calculus. “The weather forecast — you have to plan ahead. The best way to do that is wake up in the morning, put the TV on and look at the cancellations,†Mr. Alloding said.

    Miguel Chimukeno, from Angola, rose to ask a question in Portuguese, which another student translated to French, which the French interpreter, Eric Ndayizi, posed to Mr. Alloding.

    “He’s low income — zero income — and you said they should watch TV and know some information. How does he get TV?†Mr. Ndayizi asked.

    “There’s nobody that’s going to issue out TV’s,†Mr. Alloding said. “My only suggestion is that you talk to your neighbors.â€

    One of the biggest winter-related issues refugees face, Mr. Alloding said, is dealing with the heat in their apartments. “Some landlords have evicted some of my clients,†he told the class. “There is a complaint that a certain population will open the heat at 90 and keep it on. They are under law to provide you with a temperature of no more than 67.â€

    Wrapping up class, Mr. Alloding mildly suggested that his students try to enjoy the winter.
    “I know most of you don’t have fun in the snow — maybe children, I don’t know,†Mr. Alloding said. “The snow looks beautiful during Christmas. It’s white, there are no insects flying around, that’s the fun of it.â€

    I believe Maine was bringing in Somalian "refugees" about 10 years ago. All they ever do is end up on welfare and bring crime and stupidity to the nearly all-white cities they end up in. It really is insane. What benefit is it to us to have nearly feral, illiterate central Africans running around?

    I can't get my mind around the stupidity of someone that would think importing someone from equatorial africa to fridgid Maine makes any kind of sense. It seems to be complete madness on so many levels. I really cannot understand it. I never could and never will. I can only assume that those types of people are functional psychotics and have risen to a level of control that never should have happened. What bugs me more then that is there are so many people who agree with them and encourage it.

    Many of those people are religious and use some sort of religious reason to support this kind of social de-evolution. But isn't it obvious that God wanted these people to live in hot weather amongst their own kind of people? It seems a violation of God's will to import them to such a foreign place and put them under so much suffering. In fact it is cruel. How do they rationalze that?

    The fact is that these people are much, MUCH better off being cold in Maine, than being eaten by their fellow black in Congo. Im sure many of them have AIDS too. The whole thing is a total mess. We really do live in a cartoon. Its upside down backwards world.

    There has been a concerted effort over the past 10-15 years by church groups, aid organizations, and other assorted associations, with the blessings and help of the Feds, to bring in Somalians, Congonese, and people from other hellholes in Africa into the US, and then re-settle them in lilly-white towns (90% or more) in states like Minnesota, Nebraska, Maine, and others. It's all coordinated under a careful agenda to ensure that Whites have nowhere to run anymore and forced to live with these third-world vermin, and watch their communities get destroyed from within. And these people never had a say in any of this.

    I've read many stories where people wake up one morning to find busloads of Africans coming in and moving to their designated Section 8 homes, and their first stop is the welfare office to make sure they get their share of "gibsme dat" as soon as possible. Then, as the above article indicates, word gets out that this new town is clean, safe, with lots of government benefits, and like ****roaches, they multiply. The circle is getting smaller and smaller. Other than the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Eastern WA, maybe certain parts of CO/NE, there are not many places left where as a White person/family, you can go and try to live a peaceful, normal life.

    Here's another story, as we move from Maine to Texas now, where the war on White people continues:

    This is a sad, but totally true comment. We are only 8% of the world population, and the future looks very grim without devine intervention. Honestly what can possibly be done at this point?

    RESIST!!! Like being members of this site. Educating like minded, ethnic and complexion people to the hazards and dysfunctionality of non whites and the dangers of them living amoungst them.

    I would rather go out swinging rather than being a limped d*cked sorry ass White person thrown onto the trash heap of history.

    I wouldn't be surprised if these stupid sluts get impregnated by one of these Somalis.

    Maine is now ruined too.

    "We are one people." I just have a gut feeling that the Somalis don't believe that for one minute.

    Interesting article regarding coping with the U.S. looney bin:


    Men Turning Their Backs on Modernity


    Masculinized women
    . Feminized men. Witch hunts for white boogeymen. Enfeebling government largesse. Humiliating reeducation camps. Self-aggrandizing social media. Ruling class treason. Corn and porn. Hypocritical, status whoring SWPL leftoids robotically sermonizing about a diversity they spend vast energy fencing off from themselves.

    It’s enough to make a guy want to say “**** it to all that.”

    And some men are doing just that, before the diseased forces of modernity permanently infect their sanity. Commenter Dan at Mangan’s writes,

    I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a dozen years ago. It was not a misdiagnosis then. I was a mess with run ins with the police and mental institutions and a suicide attempt where my life had to be saved, while managing to graduate with honors from an Ivy league school.

    Since then, I’ve had totally smooth sailing with stable marriage and four kids so far, a long tenure at a successful job, a nice house, large savings and so on, and some political activism while I tapered off medication almost completely.

    Here are some lifestyle changes:

    - Going from binge drinking to no drinking
    - Going from massive caffeination to no caffeine.
    - Going from lots of all-nighters to sleep every night
    - Going from atheism to faith (if you are an atheist and not suicidal, you aren’t trying hard enough)
    - Becoming conservative, not just politically but behaviorally
    - Going from being the life of the party to being a bit square

    When I changed, my friends said they wanted the old me back. Ha. The old me was mentally diseased and headed for a graveyard.


    Mental illness likely has a genetic origin, but the particular ills of modern society — a recent innovation in human cultural ecology that is undoubtedly exerting powerful selection pressures on first world peoples that perhaps rival the great genetic selection events of the ancient past — could be exacerbating tendencies to psychological distress.

    Evidence is mounting all around us that Western people — whites especially, and white women the most — are unhappy, frazzled and dangerously delusional, even though they can’t quite put their fingers on the cause of their anguish and quixotic need for comforting self-flagellation.

    Some turn to medication. Others, like Dan above, rearrange their lives in hopes of warding off the gray shroud of ennui. And they rearrange in a way that, intentionally or not, closely conforms to the kinds of lives that men led pre-postmodern America. They become less of what the modern society demands more of, and embrace the opposite of that which the modern society inexorably pushes one toward.

    The men who turn their backs on modernity become less secular, less spastic with stimulants, less beholden to participation in the rat race, less burned out by digital addictions social or sexual, less political, less engaged in media-fed triviality, less liberal (yes), and less status-conscious. They may even become less sociable, as it seems a precondition of eschewing the trappings of modernity is a willingness to ostracize oneself from the hedonist herd.

    This is not a lifestyle choice for everyone. Some of us like our freedom and sexual cornucopia, and can better manage, or compartmentalize, the peculiar stressors of secular modern society. But many people would find much comfort and peace of mind by essentially flipping the bird to the trajectory that the West is currently on. If you believe that maximizing human happiness is a noble goal, then you wouldn’t stand in their way.

    Don't forget that half the White population is below the White average for intelligence and add on to this lack of real world exposure to nonwhites and it is easy to fall for the propaganda. The lower intelligent will follow their leaders in many cases even when their own eyes see the contradiction and the more intelligent are better at avoiding the dangerous nonwhite and people without exposure to real nonwhites, generally, are naive. And many other Whites know the truth but remain silent for fear of what others might do if they speak the truth. Others are hypocrites who don't care about other people only want praise for themselves.

    But real world exposure can quickly change people attitudes. Years ago saw a talk show where the subject was suppose to be sexual assault on college campus, which was suppose to be a politically correct males banishing program but one of the young women, if remember correctly from Alabama, who had been politically correct and had black friends one of who assaulted her, and she was very blunt and politically incorrect about warning White women to avoid black males. The host didn't know what to do! People who are naive and intelligent can change opinion very quickly when exposed to the truth.

    As for religion, most preachers want a comfortable life of being praised and ones who don't say what the powers that be want them to say don't have a comfortable life of praise. Basically, if the leaders both governmental and religious are change most people will change their opinion on race on a dime to that of their new leaders.

    Most egalitarians are White supremest (people who want to rule over nonwhite) who could care less about what is best for nonwhites as long as they can say to White separatist how much better people egalitarianism are then common Whites who they force to live with nonwhites while they avoid them because they are so much better.

    Bluntly put, there is nothing in this world more selfish than an egalitarian who wants to remove a nonwhite from there native (warm) climate to bring them to a White civilized country so that the White egalitarians can teach them to be better people and to replace common Whites so the egalitarians can have nonwhite slaves/servants take care of them. Rationalizing it as good is just a lie.

    A country lead by such delusional people is doomed.

    I don't believe (for 1 second) the Lord meant for people to become mongrelized. He confounded the languages & split the people at the tower of Babel. The Word is full of examples of segregation (tribes, races, believers vs. the carnal world, etc.). The only unity should be in Christ (spiritually). Most of these churches pushing the "social gospel" are apostate & (salvation thru) works based. As Christians, we're not to be "respecters of persons" but winners of souls to/for the Lord.

    DixieDestroyer, sir, I live in a shore area and when I go for a walk sometimes, there's a small inlet beach I pass with hundreds of birds there in the morning. Each species of bird is always with their own species, the short neck geese, gulls, pigeons, swans, ducks, etc. They never, ever mingle. Are they wrong?

    Absolutely not. That's their nature/instinct the good Lord gave them. We have a similar innate quality...to gravitate towards our own kind.

    Somalis are without a doubt the most repulsive people on the face of the earth. I believe they are the only country in the world without a proper central government which should tell you how dysfunctional they are. Funny thing is, under Italian rule, Somalia was a relatively modern nation by African standards. Shows their true nature when whitey is no longer there to hold their hands.

    There are people who make a living administering these programs in societal destruction and they probably feel morally superior to everyone else too.

    Here's an excellent article by Pat Buchanan:


    Who Killed the New Majority?

    The Republican National Committee has produced an “autopsy” on what went wrong in 2012, when the party failed to win the White House and lost seats in Congress.
    Yet, the crisis of the Grand Old Party goes back much further.

    First, some history. The Frank Lloyd Wright of the New Majority was Richard Nixon, who picked up the pieces of the party after Goldwater’s defeat had left Republicans with just a third of the House and Senate.

    In 1966, Nixon led the GOP back to a stunning victory, picking up 47 House seats. In 1968, he united the Rockefeller and Reagan wings and held off an October surge by Hubert Humphrey, which cut a 13-point Nixon lead to less than a point in four weeks.

    In 1972, Nixon swept 49 states. The New Majority was born. How did he do it?

    Nixon sliced off from FDR’s New Deal coalition Northern Catholics and ethnics — Irish, Italians, Poles, East Europeans — and Southern Christian conservatives. Where FDR and Woodrow Wilson had won all 11 Southern States six times, Nixon swept them all in ’72. And where Nixon won only 22 percent of the Catholic vote against JFK, he won 55 percent against George McGovern in 1972.

    What killed the New Majority?

    First, there was mass immigration, which brought in 40 to 50 million people, legal and illegal, poor and working class, and almost all from the Third World. The GOP agreed to the importation of a vast new constituency that is now kicking the GOP into an early grave.

    When some implored the party in 1992 to secure the border and declare a “timeout” on legal immigration to assimilate the millions already here, the party establishment repudiated any such ideas.

    “We are a nation of immigrants!” it huffed. Well, we sure are now.

    And when amnesty is granted to the 12 million illegals, as GOP senators are preparing to do, that should advance the death of the GOP as a national party by turning Colorado, Nevada and Arizona blue, and putting even Texas in play.

    Second came party acquiescence in dropping half the nation off the income tax rolls, while making half dependent on government for food assistance, income support, rent, health care and the education of their kids from Head Start through Pell Grants.

    Why should the half of America that pays no taxes but survives on federal benefits vote for a party that will cut taxes they do not pay but roll back benefits upon which they do depend?

    Third, to accommodate its K Street bundlers, the GOP embraced globalism, empowering Corporate America to shed its U.S. labor force, move its plants to Mexico, Asia and China, bring its foreign-made goods back to the USA free of charge and pocket the difference.

    Profits, stocks, dividends soared. But the Reagan Democrats of industrial America — who paid the price in lost jobs and shuttered plants from the $10 trillion in trade deficits America has run since George H. W. Bush — have now gone home to the party of their fathers. And they are not coming back.

    Fourth, rather than bringing the troops home after our Cold War triumph and telling our allies the free rides were over, Bush I and II went crusading for a “New World Order” to “end tyranny in our world.”

    After three wars and half a dozen interventions, we are bankrupt at home and hated abroad. And Americans, sick of seeing their best and bravest brought home to Dover or being fitted at Walter Reed for prosthetic arms and legs, have twice voted for an ant-interventionist president.

    Yet, one matter over which the GOP had no control is the triumph of the counterculture.
    What might be called the old morality — that abortion is the killing of an unborn child, an abomination, that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral — has been relegated by scores of millions, especially among the young, to the dark ages of the 20th century.

    Americans who adhere to this traditional morality, rooted in Christian tradition and Biblical truth, are culturally outgunned and may now be outnumbered. They may have lost America for good.

    What can the GOP do about this? Nothing.

    What will the GOP do? Probably what comes naturally — declare itself “tolerant” and respectful of all views, pro-life and pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and pro-traditional marriage.

    Reality must be faced. A generation has grown up rejecting the truths that its grandparents lived. And while population growth among our native born halted decades ago, scores of millions have come in from abroad to fill the empty spaces. And they are still coming. They like what Big Government has to offer, and seem uninterested in what the GOP has to sell.

    In that case, you try harder to sell your product, change your product, or go out of business.

    Yet, if the GOP changes its product, it may just lose its most loyal customers.
    When the obituary of the party is written, the subhead will likely read “Dead of Self-inflicted Wounds.”
