NO TO FASCISM IN LEWISTON, MAINE! By East Coast ARA

STOP THE WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR, NATIONAL ALLIANCE, AND MAYOR LARRY RAYMOND! NO TO FASCISM IN LEWISTON, MAINE!

This is a call to action from East Coast Anti-Racist Action (ECARA) for all to converge on the city of Lewiston, Maine, on Saturday, January 11th, to shut down the WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR's (WCOTC) speaker presentation featuring Matt Hale, the white supremacist leader of the group. This is also a mobilization against the National Alliance's (NA) racist campaigns to divide the working class of Lewiston through advocating an anti-immigrant agenda.

Furthermore, it is imperative that we do not forget the gross violation of security dealt to the Somali community in Lewiston by Mayor Larry Raymond, with his racist requests to the group, and his apathy towards burgeoning xenophobic and anti-immigrant hysteria in the city.

The WCOTC has been linked to dozens of violent hate crimes, including a shooting spree by one of its members, Benjamin Nathaniel Smith, which resulted in 2 deaths, 8 injuries, and the taking of said members life. The group's pseudo-religion preaches that biracial children have no souls, and that Jews are the spawn of Satan. The mass deportation of all nonwhites from the United States is advocated by Matt Hale's teachings, and the group uses the same eugenic theories used in nazi Germany to convey their beliefs on the supposed "superiority of the white race".

"When we come to power, we will execute all race traitors."- Matt Hale, 12/12/02 The National Alliance is currently the largest and most active neo-nazi organization in the United States, with an ever-increasing Canadian presence.

Since the group's birth a plague of dozens of violent crimes, including murders, bombings and robberies, have been linked to NA members or have been inspired by the group's propaganda, such as the Oklahoma City bombing. At the same time, the organization has experienced major membership growth, with its numbers more than doubling since 1992.

"Let's face it, to the Jews all of America is just too darn White. Too darn GENTILE. They don't feel comfy. Jews seem to think that our purpose in life is to make them feel as comfortable as possible. It isn't. Just say no to the Jews." - National Alliance Since his October 1st, 2002 letter to Lewiston's Somali community, Mayor Larry Raymond's racist sentiments have fueled prejudice and encouraged the covert campaign of racial hatred being carried out by the NA. His lack of concern for the well being of all Lewiston residents, and his inactivity in combating organized racism in the city, has resulted in a tragic manifestation of racism in Maine, which has not been seen since the massive Ku Klux Klan presence in the state during the 1920's.

"This large number of new arrivals cannot continue without negative results for all. The Somali community must exercise some discipline and reduce the stress on our limited finances and our generosity. We have been overwhelmed and have responded valiantly. Now we need breathing room. Our city is maxed-out financially, physically and emotionally." - Letter to the Somali elders from Mayor Larry Raymond The fact that fascist scum such as this believe that they can exploit the current racial tensions in Lewiston to further heir own racist agenda is disgusting. Lewiston has better concerns to deal with, without having to combat a racist Mayor Larry Raymond, Matt Hale, the NA and their parade of white supremacists marching through proclaiming their "racial purity", while casting slurs and prompting violent attacks on innocent Lewiston residents of all backgrounds.

We are calling upon all anti-fascists, those in solidarity with the struggle for the rights of immigrant communities, students, labor activists, human rights advocates, and in general, all working class people of Lewiston and abroad, to band together on January 11th, and from that day forward, in order to stop any intended racist organizing and intimidation within Lewiston, on the part of the WCOTC, NA, municipal government, and all other bigoted groups and individuals.

We ask that those who support and heed this call respect a diversity of tactics approach by any who are in attendance on the 11th. Through this method, we believe that maximum success can be reached in our goal of halting any activity by the WCOTC through promoting community self-defense with the empowerment of the people. If our range of opposition techniques will be at its highest point of diversity under an umbrella of anti-racist ideological unity, there are no limits to what we can accomplish on January 11th, or anytime else in the future.

THEY SHALL NOT PASS!

ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE IN OPPOSING THE WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR, THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE AND RACIST MUNICIPAL POLICIES!

A Call to Action in Lewiston, Maine by the Green Mountain Anarchist Collective On Saturday January 11, 2003, the WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR (WCOTC) plans to rally in Lewiston, Maine- a move Matthew Hale, their leader, said will "help spread the group's message of racism throughout New England". Seeking to capitalize on racist statements made by Lewiston Mayor Laurier Raymond in regards to the recent influx of Somali refugees to the area, Hale plans to deliver a speech entitled 'White Power or Ruin'. The speech will urge residents "to make sure that the Somalis feel unwelcome", and to "drive [them] out of Lewiston!".

As the WCOTC, as well as the National Alliance, continue to piggyback off of local controversies, we must continue to stand solidly against the spread of racism and fascism in our communities. This strategy, of dividing the united force of the working class along ethnic lines, is historically used by the right wing as a means of consolidating the power of the status quo (the bosses), and has the effect of strengthening the power base of fascism. In New England, where once the right played the Irish against the Italian immigrants, and the Quebecois immigrants against both, now, in Lewiston, it uses the recent immigration of Somalis as a lever to divide the natural solidarity of the working people in this Maine town.

They tell us that immigrants are taking our jobs. But the fact remains that Maine's economy, in general, has been destroyed by plant closings, capital flight, and the loss of a manufacturing base. Lewiston, like other parts of the state, actually saw its population significantly decrease between 1990 and 2000 in part because it is really difficult to find good paying jobs. This is just one example of the relationship between capitalism and community-- the more flexibility the corporations have to move to the cheapest labor markets, the more insecure working people become in their daily lives.

The WCOTC and the National Alliance seek to exploit an artificial divide in order to gain support for their neo-nazi program. But we, the working class, know racism and fascism is antithetical to our class struggle aimed at our own emancipation as human beings. As Adolf Hitler was driven to commit suicide, and as Italian workers executed Mussolini, we intend to stand united against the threat that fascism poses to the freedom, safety, and continuing struggles of our co-workers, communities, friends, and families.

We call on the people of New England, Quebec, and beyond, who strive to eradicate such racist leeches as the WCOTC from our communities, to show unity against racism not behind closed doors-- but out in the open streets of Lewiston. For, wherever preachers of racist ideology travel to spew their garbage, they will be met face to face by the fire of working class solidarity. Wherever they try to construct racial tension, we will continue to dismantle them the only way that has proven to be effective-- up front and personally. The people of New England have no tolerance for fascism or racism, we will meet the WCOTC with steadfast opposition, and we intend to win!

Working class power, not white power.

This is sad, but predictable. The Left always focuses on a few extremists on the right--if they can find them--and thereby avoid debating the real issues. The present multi-cultural pursuit in the United States is intellectually idefensible. If debated on the merits, the Left loses, and America rediscovers her roots. But if the Left finds and publicizes groups that simply want to rant slogans against it, that tends to legitimatize the Leftist ranting-sloganeers who are promoting it; and most of the American mainstream just hopes the argument will go away. If that happens, the damage will continue unabated.

My advice to the people of Maine is to ignore outsiders, of every stripe, and debate the real issues with candor and determination to preserve their heritage. (See The Leftist War On Social Cohesion.)

Avowed white supremacist Matt Hale was arrested in Chicago by federal agents today on charges of soliciting the murder of U.S. District Court Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow.

A member of Hale's group in 1999 went on a shooting spree that killed minorities in Illinois and Indiana.

Hale, a 31-year-old East Peoria man, was arrested by agents of the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force as he arrived in Chicago's federal courthouse for a contempt of court hearing in a lawsuit on trademark infringement.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald scheduled a news conference later today at the courthouse to discuss the case.

A two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury charged Hale, the self-appointed head of the World Church of the Creator, with attempting between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17 to get another individual to kill Lefkow.

Lefkow has been presiding over the trademark infringement suit and on Dec. 13 issued an order requiring Hale to show cause why he should not be held in contempt.

The indictment also charged that Hale had "by force endeavored to influence, intimidate and impede" Lefkow from presiding over the lawsuit.

Hale was taken into custody as he passed through the metal detector at the north end of the lobby of the skyscraper courthouse.

Witnesses said that after the arrest a number of Hale's supporters yelled protests in the lobby. Police and agents then flooded the area.

Fitzgerald said in a statement issued by his office that "freedom of speech does not include the freedom to solicit murder."

He said the "conduct alleged in this indictment is disturbing on many levels, but particularly so because it targeted a judge, whose sworn duty is to apply the law equally and fairly to all who appear before her."

In May 2000, an Oregon-based religious organization sued Hale's group, saying it had infringed on a trademark through the use of the name "Church of the Creator."

The indictment said that Hale's World Church of the Creator has held itself out as a religious organization "dedicated to the survival, expansion and advancement of the white race."

In 1999, former church member Benjamin Nathaniel Smith went on a shooting spree that targeted minorities in Illinois and Indiana, killing two people and wounding nine before he killed himself. Killed were former Northwestern University basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong and a member of a Korean United Methodist church.

Hey man!

I agree with your post but I would like to add one little thought of mine.

The World Church is NOT Right-Wing, far right or "ultra-right," or any other type of right(There is only right wing to us of course.)

To label racism as even fringe right wing philosophy is a device of the left. There are no "fringe" groups on the right. The World Church quite simply is NOT Conservative in any sense of the word. They may be Right Wing Euro-Type Fascists but they are not Right-Wing American COnservatives.

Conservatives try to hold on to traditions. Take a look at the Democratic Parties racial "traditions." Disgusting to say the least.

I have known about the situation in Lewiston for quite a while and it is indeed a sad turn of events that has led up to this point.

The welfare benefits should be immediately cut. The Somalis networked this movement into Maine specifically for benefits and services. It may sound paranoid but I cant help but wonder if they are trying to attain political power with such a large move. Political power on a municpal scale that is.

This is not only dishonorable, it smacks of values which are contrary to the spirit of our country itself. If they wish to live in Lewiston, they can live there like the Maine Natives they are moving in with.

The true fascists are the people FORCING Lewiston to integrate this population at the townfolks expense. I think this situation is a great deal more serious than it looks. Planned migration to overwhelm a municipality does not say good things about our "Muslim" friends.

The Somalis should be grateful that they have received refugee status and get to live in our great nation. Instead, some Fascist, I mean Liberal has indoctrinated them to seek government assistance. Good to know the Libs are actively working the Mosques. Now THATS progressive!!! :D

How about we start at the beginning for the reason of this influx:

Representatives Baldacci (NOW OUR GOVERNOR) and Allen called for $100,000 in funding to enable Catholic Charities of Maine to provide needed services to Somali immigrants in Lewiston and other communities. Catholic Charities provides outreach and assistance to refugees and immigrants.

Maine has a hard time finding work and feeding their own. Yet Baldacci and Allen want an INFLUX of immigrants! What's up with this!

I checked the various Chicago websites & there's not much more news, except that Hale had his initial appearance before a federal judge and pled not guilty. I don't know if there was a bail hearing. He faces 30 years in jail, 20 years for the solicitation for murder, 10 years for obstruction of justice. There'll probably more tomorrow. It was covered on the 3 network news programs. The reporters and cameramen missed the arrest--it seems they turned off their cameras as Hale was going through the metal detector; just after he went through the metal detector, they busted him.

White supremacist arrested for soliciting judge's murder

By Mike Robinson, Associated Press, 1/8/2003 19:13 CHICAGO (AP) The leader of a white supremacist group who planned a rally in Lewiston, Maine, this weekend was arrested Wednesday on charges he tried to have a federal judge murdered.

Matt Hale, 31, was taken into custody by agents of an FBI-led terrorism task force as he arrived at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse for a contempt of court hearing in a trademark infringement lawsuit.

The East Peoria man is head of the World Church of the Creator. A former member of the racist organization, Benjamin Smith, went on a deadly shooting rampage against minorities in Illinois and Indiana in 1999. Smith killed two people and wounded nine before killing himself.

Murdered in that spree were former Northwestern University basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong and a member of a Korean United Methodist church.

Hale was indicted on charges he tried between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17 of last year to get someone to kill U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow.

Lefkow has been presiding over the trademark case involving Hale's use of the name World Church of the Creator. She had recently ordered the organization to stop using the name and turn over all printed materials reading ''World Church of the Creator'' because the name infringed on the rights of an Oregon group, the TE-TA-MA Truth Foundation. But Hale refused to comply.

On Dec. 13, the judge ordered Hale to show why he should not be held in contempt.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said the ''conduct alleged in this indictment is disturbing on many levels, but particularly so because it targeted a judge, whose sworn duty is to apply the law equally and fairly to all who appear before her.''

At a news conference, Fitzgerald declined to provide details of the case, including exactly who is alleged to have been solicited by Hale. He did say Hale could be facing 30 years in federal prison if convicted.

''If you try to convince someone to kill someone,'' Fitzgerald said, ''that's a violation of the law and we'll prosecute it. There's no safe way to do it.'' Hale was scheduled to speak at a rally in Lewiston on Saturday. It was not clear whether the event would still be held. A call to the group's headquarters was not immediately returned.

Lewiston Police Chief William Welch said he planned to proceed with security preparations as planned. About 100 officers were expected to be on duty Saturday at the white supremacists' event at the National Guard building and a pro-diversity celebration at Bates College.

Hale told police he might be jailed for contempt and that he would send a substitute if he be in Lewiston himself, Welch said.

The diversity celebration was also going ahead as scheduled, said Mark Schlotterbeck of the Many and One Coalition.

Hale was taken into custody as he passed through the metal detector at the north end of the lobby of the skyscraper courthouse.

Witnesses said that after the arrest a number of Hale's supporters yelled protests in the lobby. Police and agents then flooded the area.

Fitzgerald said in a statement issued by his office that ''freedom of speech does not include the freedom to solicit murder.''

Hale appeared briefly late Wednesday afternoon before U.S. District Judge Elaine E. Bucklo and his attorney, Matthew Madden, entered a plea of innocent on his behalf. Madden declined to comment to a reporter later.

Hale was held in the Metropolitan Correctional Center pending a bond hearing next Monday. When he was led into the courtroom, a group of his youthful supporters, some with hair cropped extremely short and wearing black military garb, stood and gave a Hitler-style salute.

According to the indictment, Hale's World Church of the Creator has held itself out as a religious organization ''dedicated to the survival, expansion and advancement of the white race.''

The group's Web site refers to American Indians as ''an inferior human subspecies'' and derides ''Jews and the mud races.''

Last month, Hale said he could not estimate the number of members in the organization but claimed branches in every state and 34 countries.

The organization moved its world headquarters last month to Riverton, Wyo.

The state of Illinois sued Hale's group in 2002 for failing to register as a charity and failing to disclose its finances.

Hale has graduated from law school and has passed the Illinois State Bar examination.

But the Illinois Supreme Court Committee on Character and Fitness and the Board of Admissions to the Bar, which evaluates applicants' moral fitness to practice law, denied Hale's application in 1998. It said that Hale's belief in racial discrimination is inconsistent with the letter and spirit of Illinois' professional conduct rules for lawyers.

Hale has been fighting that denial in the federal courts.

I wonder if Mr. Baldacci wants state money to go to building mosques?

It is indeed sad that Maine is facing economic chaos. The "Massholes" that flood MAine and vote Liberal are a big problem. I call them the Human Plague, Mass Liberals that is.

I believe the Libs WANT Maine to cave so they can wave thier banners and have the Fed step in.

WHen I lived in Jacksonville Florida ten years ago, it was a 90% GOP state. Within a decade, the state is now at 50-50 and going downhill. The only thing helping Forida is that old Massholes dont want to pay taxes any more then normal people.

Even Texas has seen its share of MAssholes. The problem is, they move when they can not afford it here and then spread thier values, making thier new communities exactly like the ones they left in the first place!

Sorry, this situation angers me. I dont know how to help Maine but Lewiston, the New England RINO's, and the Massholes make me so mad I can barely see straight!

Who said: "I feel your pain?" I, too, feel the pain of a beautiful state being sucked into the underbelly by fat politicians who are just getting fatter at the expense of the Mainers who wish to live here. And for those Mainers who have no choice BUT to live here. I don't know where it's going to end, but the next 4 years under Baldacci should be very interesting.

Several years ago I coined the term "Socio-Economic Cleansing" to describe the phenominon you have been bemoaning here in the last couple of posts; ie. where the wealthy Leftist "Yuppies" swarm in to what they percieve to be a quiet, peaceful, rural, idyllic community.

The only impediment to their rapture seems to be "The Natives" who don't always appreciate being treated as a subserviant underclass and having these "enlightened" interlopers dictate just how we are going to live from now on - under their domination and rule, of course.

Lacking the power they lust for to just round us up and have us "liquidated" as is the norm in other socialist utopias (besides; we have GUNS... a decided inconvenience to the liquidators), they use their money, Lawyers, and political influence to accomplish what they cannot do with thugs and ordnance.

I'm not going to repeat the litany in detail here - we are all familiar as to how it works;

Before the moving van has left the driveway of their $300,000+ home, they are running, often unopposed, for the local Shcool Board. Usually the Socialist "Education" cabal sees to it that they get elected. Then of course the Board of Selectmen, Town Counsel, or whatever else needs to be infiltrated and taken over rolls under the juggernaut. Local apathy in many cases makes this a fairly easy mission for them.

Soon the liberal minority rules the Community, and of course these rustic schools where they dare mention the Name of "God" and teach insensitive and potentially embarrassing "History" will never do; for a proper socialist indoctrination we must have the biggest and the best, and pay a gaggle of Administrators and beauraucrats big bucks to properly administrate. How did this little mudhole ever survive the past 240 years without proper administration, they wonder, as they expand government into every crack and cranny of the community.

Now don't expect these Yuppie Refugees to PAY for all of this "progress"; Don't those ignorant, smelly Fishermen and Farmers know that the land they are squatting on (passed down to them in most instances through several Generations of hard-working Mainers) is prime real-estate, worth zillions of dollars to second, third, or fourth oncoming waves of urban Yuppie Lawyers and Executives? We are just not paying nearly the TAXES we should for such desireable digs - but we'll soon fix that!

Enter Mr. Tax Assessor, stage left; since Maine's Constitution demands that real estate must be taxed not at it's current usage (as they can in NH) but "fair market value", property tax rates are largely determined by market pressures - you guessed it - driven through the roof by rich urban refugee demand.

It never ceases to flummox me how the left constantly rails against the "Greedy rich Capitalists" while their own ACLU / Hollyweed types who are rolling in dough and throwing millions of it around to advance their socialist agendae seem to be completely immune from any such stigmata. Go figure!

So pretty soon all of these "Colorful" locals are getting hit with a tax bill that they cant' pull enough lobsters or grow enough corn to possibly pay - especially if they are on a fixed income, and still eat.

The options include starving to death, or freezing (take your pick), not paying the taxes until the Sheriff comes to your door with the eviction notice (and a gun; hello homelessness), or surrender to the School committee (where 95% or so of our property taxes are going), sell out, and take refuge back inland in some sandpit/swampwater hole where the Yups have yet to take over. Resistance is futile, it seems.

Then the bulldozers move in to clear those ugly trailers and fisherman's shacks out of the way to make room for more condominiums and mansions for those more worthy to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Maine's prime real-estate. Fields that once fed New England now sprout suburban tickky-Tackkies like giant angular "Better-Homes and Gardens" mushrooms. Our Orchards can no longer compete with Chinese unregulated apple products harvested with slave-labor, or pay the taxes with their reduced income... so more prime real estate becomes available.
If more Yuppies wanted to live up in Aroostic County, I have no doubt that we would be getting all of our potatoes from China as well.

Were this systematic clearance - akin to what happened to the poor Scots and Irish at the hands of the British Aristocracy in the early to mid 19th Century - done because our noses were blue, or we spoke French, or were members of a certain Church, we could plead racial, ethnic, or religous persecution, perhaps garnering a modicum of sympathy for our plight.

But our stigma is that we for the most part are Farmers, Fishermen, Mill Workers (without a Mill, thanks to China and it's hired shills in Washington) and the like. Jobs have been systematicly regulated or taxed out of Maine, and it's tough for a blue-collar Worker to earn a decent living these days anywhere in America, especially in the Peoples' Republic of Maine.

Is it my imagination, or are Maine's primary industries now tele-marketing, School Administration, and Welfare Recipiency? Well; they certainly are environmentally correct "clean" industries.

We certainly don't seem to have a shortage of Lawyers, do we? I guess the high divorce rate here keeps them employed well enough, and the Yups have to have someone to help them sue anyone they don't like out of existance. Sort of like the old Chinese Warlords always kept a gaggle of Ninja in their employ in order to ensure that they were not messed with very often.

So what Slobberd-on Miloshovic did to Serbia, the Liberal establishment has done to Maine, NH and probably a good part of Vt as well.
Word has it that the same "cleansing" in going on in the West as the California Socio-Facists escape the social cesspool they created for themselves there and are beginning to repeat the experiment all over America.

You folks in Middle America - hang on; they're closing in on you!

So what can we do to save our homes - our Communities, States, and perhaps even our Nation?

For one thing, sitting around the cracker barrel (or computer monitor) and bitching about it is not going to cut it any more, if it ever did.

I sense that most Freepers are aware of that, and are politically active in supporting Candidates who reflect our values and beleifs, communicating with and educating others to that which the Mainstream Media and our government indoctrination centers (schools) do NOT want us to know, and showing up to FREEP any movement or charade that needs FReeping.

On Election Day, volunteer to Poll-Watch (I did) and participate in anti-fraud operations.
You may recall as how I suggested back in October that someone keep an eye on a certain ethinic "refugee" Community in Lewiston to see where, and how often they voted. Did anyone?

Do you really think that Native (or more than 25 years residency) Mainers elected the dominant Party to the State House and U.S. Congress last November?
They might have - Maine has never been known to be a particularly "Conservative" State... but I rather doubt it.

The Commucrat constituency of Yuppies, Refugees, out-of State College Students and career welfare-recipients is a powerful bloc, under which Maine's surviving working-class minority will feel increasing pressure and restraint for the forseeable future.

California and Maine seem to be Liberalism's last American bastions.

They may have suffered some setbacks as a result of the national Klinton abomination revulsion and our President's positive initiative, but we discount or ignore them at our own dire peril.

And before any of us arrange a party to celebrate our President's recent Tax Reforms, just remember;

"What the Federal Goverment withdraws, the State of Maine will cram back in, with interest aplenty!"... If you get my drift.

As to that Lewiston Debacle; I'm glad that this is January and not August. Maine weather this time of year has a way of inducing participants of any such carnival of kooks to keep their shirts on.
I still plan to avoid the place like the plague for a while, and if we lived there would strongly consider going on a long trip this weekend.

Does anyone have any GOOD NEWS out there? I could sure use some.

You hit, hit, hit the nail on the head. It is a firestorm here in Lewiston, and the closer Saturday gets, the more nervous I get. I just get the feeling that something bad is coming down the pipe.

I have considered leaving Lewiston and fleeing up north. My company has an outfit in Augusta. But I don't want to be forced out of my home. I have lived here all my life. I know every inch of Lewiston Auburn like the back of my hand. My friends, my family, my everything is here.

The Somalis aren't as peaceful as they appear on TV or in the paper. They are rude, lazy people, and they are the biggest racists you will ever meet. I know this. I live in close proximity to them. The fact that they are Muslim is also cause for alarm. Many Somalis are militant Muslims--you know, like the nineteen Muslims that drove planes of Americans into buildings. A lot of people don't know this about Somalis. They are Muslim to the core--they are not the shiny happy moderates that everyone likes to daydream about. They are hardcore. And they are here.

But what do we do? Our hands are tied. I hate this helpless feeling I have. I have never felt so impotent before in my life. I don't care if I am branded a racist--I am going to start speaking the truth about Somalis, the truth that no one else seems to care about. How radical they are. How much they hate Jews and Americans. People are forgetting the fact that they collect welfare on a massive scale. Nothing they do makes them desired members of the community.

You want to know how Somalis really think? I regularly visit a Somali forum, for the poor little "refugees" here in the States. You should hear some of the things they talk about. THEY HATE US. They hate everything about us. They hate America. They want Islam to acheive world dominance, and they honestly believe that this will happen. At this point, I am not so sure that it won't. Here's a comment made by a Somali that is going to college in the States to be a doctor: "Your blind support for the swines who occupy our land in Palestine. Cut the four billion donation and the military support to Israel and let's see how many seconds the hair backed swines and dogs last." This was in response to a question: why do you hate America?

All I have to say is, it is time for people to wake up. These are the kind of people we have living among us. The wolf is no longer at the door.

He's in the house.

Yikes!; I had a feeling it was bad, but didn't know it was THAT bad. The Media is doing a pretty good job of whitewashing the situation over and portraying the Somalis as helpless "victims".

I wonder how long it will be before those "Technicals" - you know the pickup trucks with the machineguns mounted in the back - start patrolling the streets of Lewiston to assure that the tribe is properly accepted and respected. About the first time a Lewiston Police cruiser meets an RPG they won't be seen around much after dark - if at all.

How are things in the Lewiston Schools? Are the followers of Islam actively proselytising (trying to convert other kids) or intimidating others, or minding their own business?
I would expect that the govt. Schools would be a whole lot more tolerant of Islam than they are of Christianity, and I would not be surprised to see an after-school Moslem Club formed in the near future to convert as many of the local kids as they can - and the ACLU won't mind a bit.

Have they built the Mosque yet?

You probably have not seen the AK-47s and RPG's yet, but I suspect that more than a few of them are not too far away from an adequate supply should the need arise.

Another thing you are apt to see this weekend is a demonstration of the kind of Islamic jihadist "backup" that the tribe can call in on short notice from all over the Country if any of the local Yankees push back overly much or fail to demonstrate sufficient racial sensitivity.

I doubt that they will be waving signs or making a big fuss, but if you see them you will know who they are... and they will, likely as not, scare the hell out of you. For good reason.

As much as I hate to see these Nazi Loonies presenting themselves as a solution to this situation, if and when the tribe gets more aggressive and pushy, and some of the Locals get sufficiently frustrated and desperate, no telling what could happen.

Of course, we need not look to our local, State, or Federal Government to do anything positive about it.

We could have a rather interesting Summer ahead of us!
(Got enough sandbags and supplies?)

Please do take care up there this weekend!

Yes, there is a mosque, and it is in the middle of downtown Lewiston--it is right on Lisbon St. And they are teaching an Islam class for the non Muslims at Lewiston Adult Ed. You know, I hadn't even thought of any jihaders coming down in case the locals got a little rough until you brought it up. Great, now I am even more nervous:) I hope I don't see any of those freaks wandering around.

I am staying far, far away from that circus today. Going to check out the madness had occured to me earlier in the week, but the mood in town has changed significantly since then. Mark my words, someone is going to get hurt today. I don't intend to be there when it happens.
