The Death of Detroit by Frosty Wooldridge

     Frosty Wooldridge, now 64, has been a journalist, a writer and a teacher.  His politics tends
toward the extreme right and he has written for the website of David Duke, an avowed racist. 
Wooldridge  also demonstrates anti-Catholic feelings in his criticism of the policies of the Catholic
Church on abortion and contraception.  Wooldridge is an environmentalist who believes in
population control.  Does this make him an eugenicist?  Well, many hippie/Marxist liberals also
want to limit population growth to "save" the environment, and Barack Obama's science advisor,
Paul Holdren, advocated population control by secretly introducing chemicals into public water
supplies that would make people sterile.  The chief scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund,
Charles Wurster, said that banning DDT and letting people die from malaria in Africa and Asia was
as good a way as any to reduce population pressures on the environment.  
      What Frosty Wooldridge says in the following article is mostly true and backed up by other
sources, such as Time Magazine.  It should not be viewed as racist, as is most speech critical of
minority behavior. 
Detroit - A socialist hell-hole that will self-destruct within
a few years.  A fitting tribute to Lyndon Johnson's Great
by Frosty Wooldridge
      For fifteen years, from the mid 1970s 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.
      Detroiters walked through it, tossed more into it, and ignored it.  Tens of thousands, and then
hundreds of thousands of those in Detroit today exist on federal welfare, free housing, and food
      With Aid to Dependent Children, minority women birthed 8 to 10, and in one case, one woman
birthed 24 children as reported by the Detroit Free Press, all on American taxpayer dollars.
NOTE: A Muslim woman recently gave birth to a baby of record birth weight in Germany that
            she named Jihad.  Jihad was her 14th child in a country where the average family
            has two children.  How long will it be before Muslims swamp the native German
            population, change the character of the nation, and impose an economic burden
            similar to what Detroit is experiencing?
NOTE: Between 2000 and 2010 minorities accounted for 85% of the population growth in the
            United States, while the white birth rate decreased over the same time period.  Recently
            a minority couple was honored at a basketball game for having 17 children and 200
            grandchildren.  By 2042 whites will constitute less than 50% of the U. S. population
            and by 2050 whites will make up only 46% of the U. S. population.  In Great Britain
            the most common named given to new-born babies is Mohammed!  Great Britain is
            another example of a nation that is losing its national identity.  The city of London is
            often sarcastically referred to as "Londonstan."
      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.
NOTE: The use of the word "Mexicans" shows a bit of a racial bias on the part of Wooldridge.
            There are many Hispanic immigrants, both legal and illegal, but they come from all over
             Central and South America, and most Hispanic immigrants are solid family people who
             contribute to the overall welfare of the nation.
     Detroit suffers so much shoplifting that grocery stores no longer operate in many inner city
locations.  You could cut the racial tension in the air with a knife.
NOTE:  Here Wooldridge mentions "racial tension" without explaining what he means.  This is not
             racial tension between whites and minorities but instead the racial tension between these
             minorities.  Few people know or will admit that blacks can and do exhibit racial prejudice.
             Blacks often refer to white people as "whitey" with the same intended insult as whites
             when they use the "N" word.  Many blacks are also prejudiced against Hispanics and
             Asians.  Surprisingly, I haven't noticed similar prejudice from Hispanics to other racial
             groups.  The prejudice of Muslims to all others is so great that it will be dealt with as a
             separate issue later in this writing.
      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.
NOTE: Here we should say something about the hippie/Marxist liberal notions about their claim
            that multiculturalism is something good that all must strive to achieve.  First, these hippie/
            Marxist liberals claim that all cultures are equal; well, except for Western European
            culture, which is inferior to all other cultures.  The American Indian (not native-American)
            culture that practiced human sacrifice and the torture of young children in Central America
            to make it rain and the torture of human beings for sport and entertainment in North
            America is portrayed by the hippie/Marxist liberals as superior to Western European culture.
            Black culture is also portrayed by the moronic hippie/Marxist liberals as a culture superior
            to Western European culture.  It is this promotion of black culture by the hippie/Marxist
            liberals that has caused so much damage to blacks in the United States.  Black culture
            has blacks saying to black students who try to work hard to get a good education that
            they are "acting white," and this is meant in a derogatory sense.  Minority families also
            know how to game the system to get more money from the "Great Society" programs when
            it comes to education.  Since American teachers have been programmed with a great deal
            of bogus psychological theory, any student not doing well in school is most often labeled as
            "emotionally disturbed" - "challenged" - whatever.  The families of such students are eligible
            for increased payments from the "Great Society" programs to deal with these disabilities.
            Some minority families tell their children not to do well in school so that the family can
            receive what they call "crazy money."  More examples of the damage done by the hippie/
            Marxist liberal push for multiculturalism will be presented later.  Now, on with the paper
            by Frosty Wooldridge.
      Unemployment hit 28.9 percent in 2009 as the auto industry vacated the city.  In Time
Magazine's October 4, 2009 issue, "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 hurricane, 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 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 Colman Young's corruption brought the city to its knees, no amount of federal dollars could
save the incredible payoffs, kick backs, and illegality permeating the 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," Okrent said.  "Detroit's treasury is
$300 million short of the funds needed to provide the barest municipal services.  The school
system, which 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 of 10 remain unsolved.  Three years after Katrina devastated New Orleans, unemployment
in that city hit a peak of 11 percent.  In Detroit, the unemployment rate is 28.9 percent."
NOTE: Let's pause in this quote from Time Magazine writer Daniel Orkent to examine why the
            Detroit teachers' union would reject an offer to build 15 charter high schools in the city.
            Teachers' unions are all about pay, working conditions and pension and health benefits.
            Educating students comes far down on their list of priorities.  But there is something more
            behind this amazing rejection of help for the disadvantaged students of Detroit.  Today, in
            almost all of America's schools, teachers are promoting Marxism and demeaning the
            free enterprise economic system as enslaving, American corporations as ravenous, the
            American military as blood-thirsty, community police forces as racist and Republican and
            conservative Americans as evil.  Charter schools would not be required to hire these
            Marxist union teachers and the psychological conditioning of students to Marxism would
            not be able to continue.  According to the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund, 47% of the
            adult residents of the Detroit regional workforce are functionally illiterate!  That is about
            200,000 adult residents and 100,000 of these adults have questionable high school
            diplomas or GED certificates.  Teachers bear a great deal of responsibility for the decline
            of Detroit and the United States in general.  Back to the Orkent article.
      "That's worth spelling out: twenty-eight point nine percent," Orkent says at the end of his 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 industries that helped build the
country we know today.  The ultimate fate of Detroit will reveal much of 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 our future?"
      As you read in my book review of Chris Steiner's, "$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 home grown 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.
      This is the end of the article by Frosty Wooldridge and my interspersed notes.  The whole
emphasis of my website is the right of individuals to be different and not be persecuted.  Well,
is Frosty Wooldridge advocating the persecution of Muslims in their right to be different?  That
depends upon who the "different" people are in this situation.  Remember, in the eyes of hippie/
Marxist liberals, all cultures, with the exception of inferior Western European culture, are equal.
That would make Sharia Law equal to the system of laws handed down to us by our Greek and
Roman forbearers.  Is that possible?  Any non-Muslim entering the holy city of Mecca is subject
to be killed...immediately!  I guess that would be like any non-Christian entering the holy city of
Rome being killed on the spot.  Which is the inferior culture?
     And as for the right of individuals to be different, Muslims believe that all non-Muslims must
be converted to the Muslim faith.  According to Islam, no one has the right to be different.  The
persecuted individuals in this instance would be any non-Muslims.  Granted, fundamentalist
Christians do try to convert non-Christians and atheists, but the penalty for not converting is not
death; just a bit of persecution.  And hippie/Marxist liberals believe that anyone not subscribing
to their political beliefs is evil, but they haven't gotten around to killing non-believers - yet - as one
of their gods, Saul Alinsky, has proposed.  You do know that the writings of the avowed Marxist
Saul Alinsky are posted as recommended reading on the website of the National Teachers
Association?  Connecting American teaching with the promotion of Marxism was not pulled out of
thin air.
      The hippie/Marxist liberal notion that multiculturalism should be embraced as an ideal has had
one unintended effect in Great Britain.  Today, the most popular name for newborn boy babies in
England is Mohammed!  Muslims also have a much higher birth rate than native Britons.  What is
to become of English culture if this trend continues?  A few years ago Muslims rioted in Dublin,
Ireland because of perceived discrimination in that Irish Catholic country.
      Some large cities in Europe now have a majority Muslim population.  What is to happen to
national identities when a majority Muslim population in - say Germany - bans the Oktoberfest
because it conflicts with the Muslim prohibition against the drinking of alcoholic beverages?  When
there is nothing to provide for the community spirit of a people, all that will be left will be Islamic
fanaticism, because Muslims will not allow anyone to be different.
      The Prime Minister of Great Britain, David Cameron, and the Prime Minister of Germany, Angela
Merkel, have both said recently that multiculturalism has failed in their countries.  Just what is meant
by "failed."  The prime ministers explained that many minority groups, but especially Muslims, do not
become Britons or Germans when they emigrate.  Instead they tend to gather in ethnic, religious or
racial ghettos and live as they did in their former countries, rejecting English and Germany values
and customs.  This creates a source of conflict within those countries and the ghettos have been
breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists.
      The French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy is leading the campaign in France to ban burquas
and Muslim head scarves for women in public.  Head scarves are already banned in French public
schools.  Nicolas Sarkozy has joined David Cameron in Britain and Angela Merkel in Germany to
decry multiculturalism as destructive to his nation.  Belgium has banned the wearing of burqas by
Muslim women.  In Italy it is against the law for anyone to cover their face in public.  Barcelona,
Spain has banned the wearing of burqas in public buildings.  Syria, Tunisia and Turkey have
banned the wearing of Muslim veils.  Many German states have banned head scarves in schools. 
        In the United States Muslim extremists have set up terrorist training camps meant to prepare
Muslims to attack American targets as they have in England, Germany, France and Spain.  These
terrorists are not some sort of freedom fighters struggling to preserve their way of life.  Their intent
is to make everyone else conform to their way of life; to prevent anyone from being different.  All
men in Muslim theocracies like Afghanistan had to grow beards.  Anyone not having a beard was 
punished.  In one case they removed the skin from the face of a man who was clean-shaven.  Of
course, he died in the process.  But the hippie/Marxist liberals are also trying to get all American
men to grow beards, and they do discriminate against men who are clean-shaven, harking back to
the 1960s and 1970s when hippie drug freaks had long hair, beards and resembled animals.  There
is nothing religious behind the hippie/Marxist liberal push to have all men grow beards.  It is just
their natural stupidity.  But like Muslim terrorists, hippie/Marxist liberals believe that no one has the
right to be different from them; what with they being so perfect and right all the time on all subjects.
Yes, they are terminally arrogant.
