A once powerful demographic group is losing ground in American politics. For most of the countrys history, white Christian Americathe cultural and political edifice built primarily by white Protestant Christians set the tone for our national conversations and shaped American ideals. But today, many white Christian Americans feel profoundly anxious as their numbers and influence are waning. The two primary branches of their family tree, white mainline and white evangelical Protestants, offer competing narratives about their decline. White mainline Protestants blame evangelical Protestants for turning off the younger generation with their anti-gay rhetoric and tendency to conflate Christianity with conservative, nationalist...

Allowing an islamic cancer to metastasize in their home country is a form of self-flagellation in a vain attempt to assuage their internal pain.

The old song from Mikado is right on about some people, Upper/Upper Middle Class Coasties are insulated from the downside of third world immigration and Islamic Immigration in particular, while reaping the benefits of low wages, stuffed rentals, and eliminating "sauciness" of the lower classes. I would call it flagellation of "old, evil racist and religious (Christian only) America".

That is why the Two Scoops Refugee Resettlement program requiring refugees to be resettled in communities where the median home price is over $300k and the schools are in the top 10% of the state is necessary.

Bethesda, MD, Manassas, VA and Orange County can afford the increased burden of housing and schooling immigrants, not Twin Falls, ID or Buffalo, NY.

Let the Neolib/con Coasties of affluent areas enjoy the diversity also. Not just rustbelt or rural communities. It'll be so culturally enriching when the group of Somali Teens walk Hannah Merriweather and Sarah Silverstein back through the Greenbelt Bike Trail from School! Nothing says experiencing different communities then driving past all the smoking Pakistani men hanging out in front of the new affordable housing just across from Willow Downs Estates, where luxury townhomes start from $500k, within minutes of the Riverwalk featuring Benihana and Banana Republic!

Remember, Diversity is good, just like beneficial Corn Sugar, which is harmless in moderation..

When you have suffered with Communism, and watched the misery and corruption of having to answer to a powerlord, then you rise up and seize your freedom and destiny through blood sweat and tears.... you aren't going to be handing it over to some layabout, entitled migrants who want everything for free while they demand you change your values for THEIR whims. Fuck that.

The reason we're so kumbaya in the West is we've had generations of snowflakes that have never felt the pain of war or sacrifice, and have been handed participation trophies.

C'mon. If you were taking only 2 classes but the rest of the students were taking 5, it is not that hard to do better than them.



Actually, the full time course load at HU is 4.

And then again, I was working full-time, you stupid POS. If I had all my time to myself, I could take 4 to 7 classes and ace them all.

Polish politician unapologetic for ‘zero’ Muslim refugees: ‘We can be called Populists, Nationalists, Racists, I don’t care … Poland is safe’

When asked on British television how many Muslim refugees Poland has taken in, an unapologetic Tarczyński said, “Zero.”

This prompted the host to ask the vice president of the European Conservatives of the Council of Europe if he is “proud of that.”

Again, the politician did not waver, saying that Poland will not accept even one.

“This is the why Poland is so safe,” he explained. “This is the reason why we had not even one terrorist attack.”

European countries have taken in millions of Muslim refugees fleeing violence and poverty in the Middle East, resulting in citizens being slaughtered in the streets by radicalized Islamic extremists, but Poland has not seen such an attack.

And doesn’t plan to.

Polish MP: Our country is safe because we didn’t accept illegal Muslim migrants

Channel 4 host Cathy Newman asks Tarczyński “how many refugees Poland has taken,” Tarczyński says “zero”. When Newman asks him if he is proud of that, he says: “If you’re asking me about illegal Muslim migrants, not even one will come to Poland, if it’s illegal.”

The Polish MP explains how his country has accepted already 2 million Ukrainians who are working peacefully in the country. He adds that Poland will not receive even one Muslim, because that is what “we’ve promised”.

When Newman says it sounds like he’s proud of it and reminds him of accusations of racism, Tarczyński says:

“This is what our people expect from our government (…) this is why Poland is so safe, this is the reason why we had not even one terrorist attack”.

Czech PM: EU Must Turn Back Boats, Resettling Migrants Is ‘Road to Hell’

On Twitter, Babiš stressed that the bloc should follow Australia’s lead and turn back the boats, writing: “We must send a clear signal that illegal migration has ended and that the European Union is ready to return illegal immigrants immediately.”

Interior Minister Jan Hamáček said the government is offering Italy alternative forms of assistance including the possibility of sending border guards and experts to help push back migrants in North Africa.

“We must focus on the solution to the migrant crisis causes and the ways of halting the flow of illegal migrants, including the fight with their smugglers,” he told CTK. “We will not tackle the migrant crisis by keeping the door to Europe open to uncontrolled migration.”

The Czech Republic’s fellow Visegrád nation Hungary took a similar line, with Fidesz parliamentary spokesman István Hollik stating: “We will not be accepting anyone, as Hungarian voters made it clear at the last election that they do not want to live in a nation of immigrants.”

Describing the NGO boats ferrying migrants across the Mediterranean as “Soros ships”, in reference to open borders-backing globalist billionaire George Soros, Hollik added that “Hungarians reject the Soros plan”.

Hungary officially pulls out of UN migration pact as it ‘encourages migration’

It has become clear that differences between Hungary’s position on migration and the UN’s approach are irreconcilable, Szijjarto told a press conference.

“Hungary will maintain its position and no global package can change that”, he added.

“We see migration processes from a different perspective,” he said. The UN believes that migration is unavoidable, beneficial and should be supported, while Hungary considers it a danger to Hungary and Europe, he said, adding that the UN’s aim was to encourage migration whereas Hungary’s goal was to stop it.

The Global Compact for Migration includes some agreeable targets, such as taking action against human smugglers, but its effect will be contrary even to these, he said. A document that encourages migration will only benefit human smugglers because they can then convince more people to set off, telling them that they will be accepted in line with the global compact, Szijjarto said.

Hungary’s position is that it would be unnatural to change the population of the continent and global efforts should instead be made to stop migration, he said.

The migration compact includes certain obligations that Hungary would not be willing fulfil, such as organising training sessions for migrants before they set off and after they arrive, granting allowances to those send home remittances, enabling NGOs to help migrants submit complaints, increasing migrant reception capacities and viewing border crossing as a human rights issue instead of a security issue, he added.

Hungary has introduced “precisely contrary measures” in order to protect the security of citizens, Szijjarto said.
In response to a question, he said that considering that the US had not even participated in the talks on the Global Compact for Migration and several countries had expressed dissatisfaction at the end of talks, Hungary was unlikely to meet with any negative fallout as a result of its announcement.

That's an excellent photo because it describes Polish history in a nutshell.

"Pole" (pronounced with the final "e") literally means "field" in Polish. The country's name indicates its geography. Poland is very flat north of the Carpathians, and has historically been rolled over in both directions: Nazis from the west, Communists from the east.

They don't want to be either of those! They just want to be Polish.

Nazis from the west, Communists from the east.

And the Lithuanians (yes, Lithuania once ruled over Poland and modern day Belarus and even parts of Ukraine, I think) and after that the Holy Roman Empire and Russian
Empires, followed by the breakup of the former, the German Confederation and its successor, the German Empire in conjunction with the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Sucks to be Poland.

Yep, as had France, Germany, Italy, and especially Britain. Of course those countries, along with Poland, did there fair share of invading as well.

Most of Ukraine and parts of Russia (Smolensk region, IIRC). It was called The Grand Duchy of Lithuania then and at some point it was the biggest state in Europe.

Finland's last government failed a few months ago over Health Care financing.

Bank of Finland's Governor declares current Bernie-Beloved system in financially unsustainable.


HELSINKI, March 15 (Reuters) - Finland’s social and healthcare systems still need reforming to ensure the sustainability of its public finances, Bank of Finland governor Olli Rehn said on Friday, a week after the failure of its health reform plan led the government to quit.

The coalition government resigned a month ahead of a mid-April general election, saying it could not deliver on the healthcare reform package, its key policy and widely seen as crucial to long-term fiscal security.

“The collapse of the structural reform of the social and healthcare (systems) is of course very troublesome from the point of view of fiscal sustainability,” Rehn told a news conference in Helsinki.

“The problem itself, (the need for) better and democratic healthcare as well as consolidation of public finances, has not disappeared.”
