This is based on this letter by the Mayor. The Somalis were brought here as refugees, paid for by US taxpayers, and they targeted Lewiston for its welfare benefits and low crime rates. This is how they show their thanks...

Naw. He'd be a racist and a bigot if he called in the National Guard to evict these freeloaders.

Been done to death here.

Until the kaht chewing ranger killer's are moved to Westchester county in New York, I may still dislike the islamists.

Of course they could move them 20 miles north of Fort Kent, I am sure they would be welcomed there.

Of Course you could always find there social club and start playing BlackHawk Down 24 hours a day, on the outside of the building.

They aren't skilled enough to hold down jobs. Many cannot speak English well, if at all.

But they sure know the language of victimization.

Deport these scumbags.

I am getting a bit sick of people coming to this country and treating it as their personal litter box if they do not have their butt kissed on a daily basis.

Although I will bet my house that their is a non Somali agitator behind all of this.

This was just a matter of time. The Somalis are entitled to move anywhere they want, dontcha know? We are obligated to accept them, even if they drive us to the brink of bankruptcy. All in the name of multiculturalism, you see.

The idea that for a group to prefer their own ethnicity--and rooted ciitizens of Maine were certainly evolving a distinct ethnicity, even in relation to other Americans--is somehow "bigoted," is one of the big lies of the Left that we need to confront, wherever it crops its ugly head. (See The Big Truth.)

This lie is one of the most widely used by the modern Leftist. It should be instantly recognized and instantly answered whenever it is encountered.

I have nothing against the people of Somalia. I am sure that some of these people are admirable. I am also sure that some of them are far from admirable. (Were it otherwise, they would not have a land that seems in perpetual conflict and near chaos.) Neither their virtues nor their vices are in the least relevant.

Americans have a right to preserve the character of their communities. That includes the culture, lines of descent and lineage--and that means race and ethnicity. The politically correct crowd has tried to create a new bastardized cultural norm, where anyone who even tells an ethnic joke at a party is ostracized and treated as a pariah. What rational men and women should be doing, however, is ostracizing those who have so little common sense, that they consider it "bigoted" for people simply seeking to preserve social and cultural continuity.

Stop tolerating the Leftists who seek to destroy everything your ancestors strove for! These Somalis are simply being used as pawns.

I just watched a movie this morning called, "The Second Civil War" where the Governor of Idaho (Beau Bridges) closes down the state when the President (Phil Hartman, God rest him) orders refugee Mexican children relocated there. Funny movie watching *NN news cover the fiasco. Right wing militants, left wing administration, Chinese Governor of Rhode Island, etc. Movie was made in '97. What a riot.
