DETROIT…A Failed Experiment in Socialism
 

By  Frosty Wooldridge

For 15 years, from the mid 1970′s to  1990, I worked in Detroit, Michigan. I watched it descend into the  abyss of crime, debauchery, gun play, drugs, school truancy,  car-jacking, gangs and human depravity. I watched entire city  blocks burned out. I watched graffiti explode on buildings, cars,  trucks, buses and school yards.Trash everywhere!

Detroiter s walked through it, tossed more into  it, and ignored it. Tens of thousands, and then hundreds of  thousands today exist on federal welfare, free housing, and food  stamps!

With Aid to Dependent Children, minority women  birthed eight to 10, and in one case, one woman birthed 24  children as reported by the Detroit Free Press, all on American  taxpayer dollars.

A new child meant a new car payment, new TV,  and whatever mom wanted. I saw Lyndon Baines Johnson’s ‘Great  Society’ flourish in Detroit. If you give money for doing nothing,  you will get more hands out taking money for doing  nothing

Mayor Coleman Young, perhaps the most corrupt mayor  in America, outside of Richard Daley in Chicago, rode Detroit down  to its knees… He set the benchmark for cronyism, incompetence,  and arrogance. As a black man, he said, “I am the MFIC.” The IC  meant “in charge”.

You can figure out the rest Detroit became a  majority black city with 67 percent African-Americans.

As a  United Van Lines truck driver for my summer job from teaching math  and science, I loaded hundreds of American families into my van  for a new life in another city or state.

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

As the crimes became more violent, the whites  fled. Finally, unlawful Mexicans moved in at a torrid pace.  Detroit suffers so much shoplifting that grocery stores no longer  operate in m any inner city locations.. You could cut the racial  tension in the air with a knife! Detroit may be one of our best  examples of multiculturalism: pure dislike, and total separation  from America.

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 Arabia oil money. High  school flunk out rates reached 76 percent last June, according to  NBC’s Brian Williams. Classrooms resemble more foreign countries  than America. English? Few speak it! The city features a 50  percent illiteracy rate and growing.

Unemployment hit 28.9 percent in 2009 as the  auto industry vacated the city. In Time Magazine’s October 4,  2009, “The Tragedy of Detroit: How a great city fell, and how it  can rise again,” I choked on the writer’s description of what  happened. “If Detroit had been ravaged by a h urricane, and  submerged by a ravenous flood, we’d know a lot more about it,”  said Daniel Okrent. “If drought and carelessness had spread brush  fires across the city, we’d see it on the evening news every  night.” Earthquake, tornadoes, you name it, if natural disaster  had devastated the city that was once the living proof of American  prosperity, the rest of the country might take notice.

But Detroit, once our fourth largest city, now  11th and slipping rapidly, has had no such luck. Its disaster has  long been a slow unwinding that seemed to remove it from the rest  of the country.

Even the death rattle that in the past  year emanated from its signature industry brought more attention  to the auto executives than to the people of the city, who had for  so long been victimized by their
Dreadful decision  making.”

As Coleman Young’s corruption brought  the city to its knees, no amount of federal dollars could save the  incredible payoffs, kickbacks and illegality permeating his  administration. I witnessed the city’s death from the seat of my  18-wheeler tractor trailer because I moved people out of every  sector of decaying Detroit.

“By any quantifiable standard,  the city is on life support. Detroit’s treasury is $300 million  short of the funds needed to provide the barest municipal  services,” Okrent said. “The school system, which six years ago  was compelled by the teachers’ union to reject a philanthropist’s  offer of $200 million to build 15 small, independent charter high  schools, is in receivership. The murder rate is soaring, and 7 out  o f 10 remain unsolved. Three years after Katrina devastated New  Orleans, unemployment in that city hit a peak of 11%. In Detroit  today, the unemployment rate is 28.9%. That’s worth spelling out:  twenty-eight point nine percent.

At the end of Okrent’s report, and he will  write a dozen more about Detroit, he said, “That’s because the  story of Detroit is not simply one of a great city’s collapse,  it’s also about the erosion of the industries that helped build  the country we know today. The ultimate fate of Detroit will  reveal much about the character of America in the 21st century.

If what was once the most prosperous manufacturing city in  the nation has been brought to its knees, what does that say about  our recent past? And if it can’t find a way to get up, what does  that say about America’s future?”

As you read in  my book review of Chris Steiner’s book,”$20 Per Gallon”, the auto  industry won’t come back. Immigration will keep pouring more and  more uneducated third world immigrants from the Middle East into  Detroit, thus creating a beachhead for Islamic hegemony in  America. If 50 percent illiteracy continues, we will see more  homegrown terrorists spawned out of the Muslim ghettos of Detroit.  Illiteracy plus Islam equals walking human bombs.

You have already seen it in Madrid, Spain,  London, England and Paris, France with train bombings, subway  bombings and riots. As their numbers grow, so will their power to  enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of  government, first amendment rights, and subjugates women to the  lowest rungs on the human ladder. We will see more honor killings  by upset husbands, fathers and brothers that demand subjugation by  their daughters, sisters and wives. Muslims prefer beheadings of  women to scare the hell out of any other members of their sect  from straying. Multiculturalism: what a perfect method to kill our  language, culture, country and way of life.


I PRAY EVERYONE THAT READS  THIS REALIZES THAT IF WE DON’T STAND UP, AND SCREAM AT WASHINGTON,  AND OUR STATE, CITY AND LOCAL LEADERS THIS IS WHAT AWAITS THE REST  OF AMERICA. IF YOU THINK MEXICANS AND MUSLIMS AND OTHER  FOREIGNERS WILL EVENTUALLY FIT RIGHT IN THEN YOU ARE AS BIG A PART  OF THE PROBLEM AS THEY ARE.

IF YOU THINK THIS IS  JUST A BUNCH OF HOOEY AND YOU FEEL NO DUTY TO FIGHT FOR THIS  COUNTRY, THEN I’M SORRY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT WILL TAKE FOR YOU TO  STAND AND FIGHT …

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting  on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting  the vote.” — Benjamin Franklin

    I knew Detroit was bad, so bad that Rush mentioned they wanted to bulldoze whole blocks. I did NOT realize that it had become the foretaste of hell. I agree that Americans need to wake up, however it would do no good to scream at Washington. Most of the Democrats left in Washington are progressive/globalist/Marxist/communists. Their intent is to implement the Cloward & Piven Strategy to radically change the capitalist republic into a socialist tyranny. Back in mid 2009 I was emailing Sen Nelson & Martinez that the Obama Regime’s policies and the Democrat legislation would produce a banana republic. They probably had a good laugh over it! I had been reading Gelately’s “Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler” when I read that Lenin realized to change the economic system you needed to devalue the currency. Click! I realized that their agenda was no mistake. Everyone kept saying why are they doing this? I knew in my heart it was no error. Too many of the Old Guard Republicans just want to stay in the game and some progressives are on board with the plan. As Glenn Beck has realized, we need to get a clear message to young skulls full of mush, the mush of Marxist teaching which the Public Indoctrination Centers have been pushing for decades. Perhaps someone could open some sort of ‘Outward Bound’ camp in Detroit that would give these kids a clear dose of the reality of the Marxist/Islamist “Utopia”. It could be a program akin to Mao’s Red Brigade students who went out to the provinces to bring Mao’s message to the peasants but who wound up seeing the reality of deprivation, starvation, and abject grinding poverty.

    Copper you mentioned something in your comment that struck a cord with me. I have long been amazed how people would say that they did not understand many of Obama’s actions or those of members of his administration including here, the Federal Reserve. I would frequently tell people, Obama minions, that they would never understand some of these actions so long as they looked at him as a traditional president, one who was looking to do what truly is in the nation’s best interest. Until the minions started looking at Obama as a radical would any of his actions begin to make sense. In fact I decided to write an article to this effect.

    Detroit is much too dangerous now. The muslims regard it as theirs and they WILL fight to keep it that way. The insurance, if you could get it, to open such a camp would be so prohibitive in price as to make it impossible to operate. If there were any uncorrupted politicians left in Detroit, I would recommend that they call in the national guard to remove and deport ALL illegals from Detroit and then actually bulldoze the place and try to rebuild. I agree with both of you that this has been done systematically and according to a plan, but we can’t just blame obama for it. The progressive/communist/global/NWO freaks have been at this for at least 100 years. And the unions and the democrat party have been their eager stooges to accomplish this. And don’t leave out the corrupt career republican politicians. Our entire government has been slowly feeding our school system and our country into global communism since 1895. Ron Reagan and eisenhower BOTH signed agreements with india, russia, and china to dumb down the public through the school system and make them believe it is for the good of the environment that we take steps backwards. Because stupider people use less energy and resources, they reasoned. This has been machinated upon us for a very long time. And if God doesn’t send some miracles we are in for bloody civil war to get out of it, or face our country’s capitulation to ICLEI/agenda 21 implementation in more than the 600 cities and counties where ir rules now.
