    Frosty Wooldridge -- How Immigration and Multiculturalism Destroyed Detroit

    How in the world do we get out of this mess? This is a perfect example of how good intentions without good foresight can produce an absolute nightmare. Never underestimate the downside of human nature. The author of the following piece is a U.S. journalist who writes for seventeen national and two international magazines.

    THE TRAGEDY OF DETROIT: HOW IMMIGRATION AND MULTICULTURALISM DESTROYED IT !
    By Frosty Wooldridge

    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 was everywhere! Detroiters walked through it, tossed more into it and just 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 Johnson's "Great Society" flourish in Detroit. If you give money for doing nothing, you will get more hands out to take 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'.

    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 (extreme) 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 NBC's 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 Time Magazine October 4, 2009, "The Tragedy of Detroit: How a great city fell and how it can rise again," I choked on the writer's description of what happened:

    "If Detroit had been savaged by a hurricane and submerged by a ravenous flood, we'd know a lot more about it," said Daniel Okrent. "If drought and carelessness had spread brush fires across the city, we'd 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 Young's 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 city's 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. Detroit's 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 philanthropist's 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% That's worth spelling out: twenty-eight point nine percent."

    At the end of Okrent's report, and he will write a dozen more about Detroit, he said, "That's because the story of Detroit is not simply one of a great city's collapse. It's 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 can't find a way to get up, what does that say about our future?"

    As you read in my book review of Chris Steiner's book, $20 Per Gallon, the auto industry won't come back (to Detroit). 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 the 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 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 to use 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.

    Now that is pretty close, but may be missing a couple things, It is pretty easy to fill them in,

    Of Course, We have to Start with US House of Representatives ... Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D- Mich 13th) Mother of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who for some reason keeps her job. In the mean time, Her Husband, Bernard Nathaniel Kilpatrick is still under investigations for corruption. (http://detnews.com/article/20100624/METRO01/6240405/Feds-not-finished-with-Detroit-corruption-probe )
    Which brings us back to Kwame...
    Detroit
    --Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was indicted this afternoon on allegations of taking at least $640,000 from his nonprofit foundation for his mayoral campaign and travel, car leases college tuition, anti-bugging equipment and yoga lessons.




    So we can move on to Ex- City Councilwoman Monica Conyers.


    Detroit
    -- Nearly a year after she admitted taking bribes, former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers wants to delay going to prison by about three more months.



    OH Yeah, By the way, Monica Conyers is the wiphe of US House of Representatives, Congressmen John Conyers, (D- Mich 14th) I believe is pretty involved with the House Judiciary Committee.

    The old movie RoboCop is not far off from reality....

    I have spent most of my life within 60 miles of Detroit, Michigan and can attest to the what the city once was, and what it is now. Once a great place to go out for dinner, and shopping at the Renaissance Center (later to become the G.M. Building). It is now a town laid to waste, by the corruption of the population who lives there, the city's government, and the immigrants who flood to this once fair town. Very said indeed.

    Do you think that this all happened by chance alone? If you couple this with what is going on in Washington D.C., we are being systematically destroyed from within.

    Agreed, Alaska. A house divided can not stand. Our congressmen/women choose to divide us with:
    amnesty for illegals
    acceptance of Islam as a "peaceful religion"
    anti-2A agenda
    hyphenated Americans (i.e. African-American, Italian-American, Irish-American, etc. etc.).

    Just yesterday, I came to the decision to begin refering to myself as a Christian-American! Wonder what kind of response that will get?

    Amen, Ringo. I REALLY should have typed "I've decided to refer to myself as a Christian-American. I wonder what kind of response that will get from the Progressives." I made the statement in sarcasm and in reference to the PC useage of hyphenated multi-cultural citizenship! So Christian-American is absolutely correct since I claim dual citizenship -- God's Kingdom first and America second!

    Mom, when you think about it, as Christians, we're ALIENS ( legal that is ) in this world, just a pass'n through.
