The Way Life Should Be? Vol. IV: Bête Noir

At a recent symposium held at the University of Southern Maine (USM), “Economic Necessity: Workforce Development and Immigrant Integration,” the “necessity” of “internationalizing” Portland was echoed by a variety of figures from Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling to David Brenerman to David Zahn of Southern Maine Community College[1] who:

connected the college with various committees in the Portland metro area (Catholic Charities, One Westbrook, Maine Immigrant Rights Coalition, etc.). David was instrumental in initiating working relationships with numerous community partners allowing for innovative workforce training initiatives to develop between the college and other entities in the greater Portland, Maine region.

Also present were several representatives of the University of Southern Maine itself, Tae Chong of Coastal Enterprises, Inc. (CEI) and Catholic Charities (who “wants to see Portland rebranded as an international city, well-poised to compete for human capital; supports an Office of Globalization”), the Maine Immigrants Rights Coalition (MIRC), the Immigrant Legal Aid Project (ILAP), SIGCO, IDEXX, and the J.T. Gorman Foundation. The Jewish Brenerman, a Portland City Council member, concluded that a “broad-based collaborative” must:

Rebrand (my emphasis) Portland as a multicultural, international city…celebrating the mosaic of ethnicities and nationalities here…strengthen Portland’s image as multicultural and international…Maine International Trade Center…re-engineer (my emphasis) the work force pipeline…[expand] USM (and SMCC?) role with training ESL teachers…support including microfinancing (Opportunity Alliance, Living with Peace, CEI, Community Financial Literacy, Portland Development Corporation, SBA) and proactively connect to employers’ needs (Diversity Hiring Coalition)…Ensure optimal coordination of the many service providers.

These service providers are legion—many of them we’ve previously discussed, and many more will be detailed. They are absolutely essential to the vast matrix of “philanthropic capitalism,” a very Jewish concept we will be “unpacking,” to use their parlance, to a greater degree in the final installment of this series, “Get Woke, Shoah Invoke.” It should be abundantly clear by now that all of these organizations from the “charitable” to the state- and corporate-sponsored are inter-connected and their machinery is geared toward first splintering and then eradicating the native white populations of the Western world. Understanding the mechanisms they employ is absolutely essential to counter-acting their destructive agenda.

Despite the fact that immigration to White countries today is predicated on economic exploitation and racial animus, it is the host population, seeing their opportunities and way of life evaporate before them, who must adapt, who are “hateful” and must confront the “systemic racism” of a society built by their ancestors for “themselves and their posterity”—not imported peoples from the dark recesses of the equator.

In a recent paper published by Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, entitled “New Mainers’ Barriers to Access Healthcare,” twenty-five medical professionals were interviewed on “systemic bias and disparities” in healthcare in the state of Maine, despite the fact that, as one informant put it, “Immigrants don’t prioritize wellness.” Never let facts get in the way of a good narrative.

Now, something about the names of the interviewees stuck out to me: Abshiro Ali, Hassan Mahmoud, Ghassan Saleh, Tho Ngo, Asha Suldan, Nelida Burke, Dancille Nshimimana, Jovin Bayingana, Claude Rwaganje, Tarlan Ahmadov (State Refugee Coordinator for Catholic Charities of Maine), Damas Rugama, Mufalo Chitam (Executive Director of Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition[2]), Heritier Nosso, Hawa Abdouckader, Sana Osman, and Nadine Twagirayezu. Of the two authors, one, Darlene Ineza, is from Rwanda, and the other, Kathleen Fairfield, supervises a clinic that works with Catholic Charities to bring refugees into Portland. I cannot imagine what their bias might be. Naturally, according to the authors . . . .
