Wingnut: Muslims, Mexicans Killed Detriot


I’d never heard of Frosty Woolridge before finding a link to this column on a wingnut website. He’s an anti-immigration activist who has been everything from a dance teacher to a “lifestyle coach.” Whatever the hell that is. He used to live in Detroit but he says stupid things like this:

Detroit plummeted from 1.8 million citizens to 912,000 today. At the same time, legal and illegal immigrants converged on the city for the free government handouts, 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…

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 Arabian oil money.

He seems to be confusing Detroit with Dearborn. They aren’t the same city. Dearborn has nothing to do with the financial problems in Detroit. Dearborn does indeed have a lot of Muslims, but it also has a lot Christian Arabs and Persians, like the Chaldeans. How they had any role in ruining Detroit is beyond me. And there aren’t “hundreds” of mosques in Michigan, there are 58. 15 of them are in Detroit. And since Muslim immigrants to America tend to be well educated and relatively affluent, even if there were large numbers of them in Detroit I don’t see how that would have contributed to the demise of the city.

You could translate the entire column into one basic sentence: If it weren’t for all those dark-skinned people, Detroit would be paradise. Never mind that a lot of those dark-skinned people don’t even live in the city he’s talking about.

    I’d like to know what were the “free government handouts” that Detroit was offering immigrants that they couldn’t get in any other city in America?

    An interesting look at the Detroit story is the BBC2 documentary Requiem for Detroit?

    Fascinating, really.

    Oh, and this Woolridge moron is a moron.

    ““lifestyle coach.” Whatever the hell that is.”

    Ed, teh GAY is a “lifestyle”? N est ce pas?

    So, maybe, before he got all JESUSReiKKKwinged, Ol’ Frosty used to teach people how to mince, lisp and be FABULOUS? I’m just spitballin’, here.

    I think it’s fair to say that the Germans, Japanese and Koreans caused the demise of Detroit. Well, maybe them plus the FUCKING BONEHEADS in the front offices of the Big Three.

    i think they ought to build a wall between Detroit and Mexico so all the illegal aliens don’t cross over and destroy the city even more. the only problem i see is that we will have to move Detroit a teensy bit closer to the Mexican border.

    I think that maybe the Mexicans were going to Detroit to take away the jobs that weren’t there? Or maybe it was all that Saudi money that was being spent on…all…the shops that weren’t there either? I don’t know.

    Maybe you need sofistimicated economaniacal phyloosoofie to understand it.

    Actually, when I lived for a number of years in a country with a large Muslim population, I quite enjoyed hearing the call to prayer every morning. I would be totally psyched if a mosque opened up in my neighborhood.

    No you wouldn’t. It’s dubstep now.
     
    Ace of Sevens “Also, aren’t the vast majority of Muslims in Michigan white Arabs? It makes no sense to say whites moved out and Muslims moved in.”
    Once you get Muslinism it turns your skin swarthy. Osama Hussein bin Laden started out as the blonde and freckled Bjorn Adlercreutz. True story.

    Modusoperandi:

    What’s actually true is that the Mormons believed that by converting, black people can actually be made white!

    I’m confident more than 90% of the racists who live in Michigan are blaming another group altogether. Frosty Woolridge therefore demonstrates he’s clueless even in Wingnuttia; that’s quite the feat.

  10. says

    Detroit plummeted from 1.8 million citizens to 912,000 today.

    All that exodus in one day? The cluelessness starts early with this one.

    I think that maybe the Mexicans were going to Detroit to take away the jobs that weren’t there? Or maybe it was all that Saudi money that was being spent on…all…the shops that weren’t there either?

    It’s both: the Saudi regime is organizing a network of El Mexiqaeda siesta-cells to take over the West and make it a caliphate or something.

    I wonder how many Mexicans and Muslims were living in Detroit before the riots in ’67 as opposed to the number living in Detroit in the 5 years after? You know immediately before and immediately after the beginning of ‘the white flight’? Surely them swarthy types were just pouring in after 1967, right?
