Somali Muslim Migrants Protest Welfare Reform in Maine
frontpagemag.com ^ | january 12, 2014 | daniel greenfeild

Posted on 01/13/2014 12:37:46 PM PST by lowbridge

Maine’s Somali Muslim settler problem is growing worse with gang violence and welfare abuse threatening the state. Governor LePage’s efforts to make Maine’s generous benefits system less attractive to Somali Muslim migrants who have swarmed the state seeking taxpayer handouts has led to protests from those same Somali Muslims.

One of the many reasons Maine is turning at least purple.

Send them all to Obama’s Hawaii. Unfortunately the DOJ will see the problem as too many YT’s in Maine and therefore white privilege is keepin’ the gibsmedat down and only through more diversity will justice have a chance.

Remember when the Somalis migrated to Maine (and specifically, to Lewiston) to take advantage of their welfare?
I do!

Couldn’t happen to more deserving folks.

Here in San Diego it was Catholic Charities who made money by importing these Somali scumbags. I hear that the Lutheran charities did the same thing in Minnesota. There must be a reason why Maine is getting hit so hard by these Somali welfare bums.

Liberal “Christian” churches get reimbursed by the fed gov to bring them over and dump them on the public purse. Once these do-gooders get them here and get their reimbursement, they are finished, and from then on it’s the taxpayers’ problem.

The Somalis carefully determined that Maine had the most generous welfare system and then migrated there.

This is why I am against Federal welfare of any sort. The ability to vote with our feet against this sort of thing is to valuable.

That is what I said to myself when I saw a bunch of Somalian women in hijabs walking out of the Catholic Charities office. Non profits are in it for the money. The “non profit” corporations get the money and pay themselves salaries.

Would appear those days are done.

It would, of course, be “racist”....” insensitive”.... and “intolerant” not to help these poor jihadi - err, “immigrants”.

After all, Maine is FULL of “white privilege” folk who have more than they need... and need to be relieved of that burden.

Back in the early 80s, I was visiting a construction site in Texas.
An old cracker told me “son, if we had welfare like you people up north, half the population of Mexico would move here tomorrow”

Welfare is Jizyah, according to some Islamic clerics.

So its their due.

I have some friends in Finland. They have the same problem.

I think it is weird that people who grew up in hot regions migrate to such cold areas.

I’m thinking the American people are about fed up with all this, if he Government won’t find the cure the little people will. So those who faithfully follow Allah should be very aware they could be on thin ice.

My understanding is the Bush dynasty, the Catholic hierarchy, and the Lutheran hierarchy want them here. I believe there is an old FR posting about the Bush administration teaching them how to abuse the welfare system.

In their minds they think that they have conquered America. It’s their right as conquerors to demand and receive anything they ask for from us.

It’s a master/slave thing in other words.

We get millions of useless immigrants and refugees ....but the Somalians are the most useless of the useless. They are idiots but walk around with a Muslim air of superiority. So I have read. They never get along with American blacks when living in proximity and they will fight each other.

The Congressional black caucus promotes African immigration and refugees. They are to blame along with do gooder churches that profit off each refugee they bring into America.

The Seattle area has tons of these folks; Portland, too. So your liberal church thesis makes sense.

BTW, these are the same kinds of churches that support tent cities for the homeless.

My daughter worked at Catholic Charities for a year while she attended college. She use to come home and complain about the welfare queens driving Lexus and BMW's to pick up their rotten bastards. It was a good lesson for my daughter to learn. She got a first hand look at what I've been telling her for years.

When you import Third World tribal people into modern society, this is what happens. Their mentality remains Third World, and they drag society back to the dark ages from which they came( and in which they choose to remain.) SHIP’EM BACK!

Even if they get jobs all of sudden they make demands about how the laws of Islam religion must be adhere too.Let them go out on the streets and highways, to be picking up cans for making of money.

There must be a reason why Maine is getting hit so hard by these Somali welfare bums.

I remember a couple years ago an article linked from here about the Atlanta Somalis didn't like the American blacks (different cultural behavior). The word got out that welfare was good in Maine. So they pulled up stakes and headed en masse to Maine and may have joined some others already there.

The people in Lewistown (I think it was) were most unhappy about it but what could they do?

So still nothing has been done and they have turned into gangs and thugs.

This won't go down well but they should be informed that they have worn out their welcome and deported. Now who would have the guts and authority to do that?

Yah -- good point. Why are these liberals bringing Muslims? Because they can't give away their "social gospel" in Ethiopia? Maybe there all the ethiopian rice-christians have been slaughtered, and the only immigrants left over to "help" are Muzzies. How many wives sre they allowed in each "family" once they get to the U. S.? Half a dozen? Maybe the somali men don't have any time or energy left over to perform laborious tasks.

Exactly. They are using the same tactic-successfully, unfortunately-that they’ve used to great advantage on the media and academia dcades ago, and most recently, on the military, and I believe, on the so-called “opposition” party, the GOP.

That’s why they, as much as the secular world, vehemently try their hardest to ridicule, marginalise, and denigrate fundamentalist, separatist Christians, such as independent Baptists, of which I am one.

Lewiston Maine could do even less than nothing-when their fund of welfare benefits was overwhelmed by the Somalis and the mayor politely asked rhe Somalis to back off and let them regroup, the Somalis successfully sued Lewiston for “racism” and to force them accept more federal funding to funnel to the Somalis, and to build more “low income” housing which the Somalis promptly trashed, having no concern for the proper use of modern plumbing, nor for building fires on the floor of their homes, nor for butchering goats on the grounds of the taxpayer-funded housing.
