“What it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25 percent (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim.”
WASHINGTON – In a post that quickly went viral, blogger Loretta the Prole outlined how a flood of Muslim refugees changed the face of her hometown of Utica, New York, forever.
The piece, titled “My Hometown is Gone,” was written in response to the recent increase in refugee numbers and was designed to “convey what it is like living in an Islamizing area,” according to Loretta.
“I’m from the Utica, N.Y., area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN ‘the city that loves refugees!’ Soon every American city will be a city that loves refugees! Get ready!” the piece begins sarcastically.
“So I would like to tell you what it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25 percent (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim.”
The first thing Loretta noticed under increasing Islamization during the Obama era was the conversion of an old Methodist church into a mosque. The next was that Muslim immigrants were increasingly put in local positions of bureaucratic power.
“So let me just summarize: the social worker at the school is Muslim, the administrator who ok’s homeschooling is Muslim, the CPS worker is Muslim, the nurse practitioner at the ER is Muslim, the doctor at the ER is Muslim. These are positions of authority that wield a lot of power,” Loretta notes.
The next development was far more alarming.
“In 2015, a 26-year-old Bosnian refugee in Utica was arrested for supporting ISIS,” Loretta writes. “I went to a couple Trump rallies and meetings in upstate N.Y. before we moved [to North Carolina]. When I mentioned the arrest of this ISIS supporter to a local businessman at one of the meetings, he got a very serious look and said Utica was full of ISIS and the local police were really worried.”
As the post-industrial economy of upstate New York continued to collapse, Loretta’s husband lost his job. Attempting to find temporary relief through food stamps, Loretta went to the local Department of Social Services.
What she found there was a Kafkaesque bureaucratic nightmare: Even though her family had no income and four children, her application for food stamps was rejected several times.
“Want to know why my application was rejected several times even though we qualified?” Loretta asks. “The Department of Social Services in my area is swamped because of the refugees. 25 percent of the city are refugees. Virtually all of the refugees are on welfare. And when they apply for welfare, they don’t do so as an independent entity, as I did. They go through their refugee resettlement agency who deals with the Department of Social Services for them. So basically Americans get the short shrift, and refugees get taken care of.”
Not only do refugees get preferential treatment over American citizens, but they bring disease as well. Loretta cited a WND article relaying the re-emergence of TB in Utica.
“This is why so many Democrats voted for Trump. Americans are getting squeezed out by non-Americans at multiple levels,” she believes. The county where Utica is located is historically a Democrat county, but it went for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
“Americans can see that they are being forced to accommodate non-Americans to their own detriment and expense,” Loretta states.
In response to the article, Loretta has received harassing messages and even death threats from Muslims and non-Muslims alike, leading her to call the police.
But she refuses to back down.
“I shouldn’t have said anything. But Trump is just letting this happen – same as Obama – and I see where this is going [and] what the stakes are,” she tweeted Sunday.
In an interview with WND, Pamela Geller, editor-in-chief of the Geller Report and president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, said Trump “has tried to stop this from happening but has been repeatedly blocked by leftist activist courts that are bent on globalization, the destruction of borders, and the destruction of the nation-state.”
“They are bent on keeping America on a path that will only bring civil strife and bloodshed on a massive scale – and sooner than anyone expects,” Geller said.
