One can't miss what isn't there

Before the St. Floyd riots made it internationally notorious, I was occasionally asked if I regretted leaving Minneapolis. I don't, as it happens, and perhaps this account of a woman who is a lifelong resident and is leaving Minneapolis today will help explain why:

I’ve lived in Minneapolis my entire life. I’m leaving Friday. I no longer recognize my hometown. Minneapolis is my home. My happiest memories are here. It’s where I learned to ride a bike, had my first date, received my high school diploma.

But today, I’m too afraid to even walk in my neighborhood by myself.

The ACE Hardware down the street? The one that I used to bike to in the summer? Robbed twice in the past five days.

The Walgreens next to my elementary school? Molotov cocktail thrown into it.

The Lake Harriet Bandshell, where we spent countless Mother’s Days? Homeless encampment popped up next door.

These are the things you don’t read about in the news.

My friends from MA, Edina, and Jefferson used to hang out at Lake Harriet on a regular basis once we got our drivers licenses. It was like an 80s movie come to life, only decorated with better-looking guys and much prettier blonde girls. I can't even imagine a homeless encampment there. 

Even two decades ago, the last time I was downtown, the area from First Avenue to Washington Avenue was barely recognizable even though most of the landmarks were the same, including the place where I first met Spacebunny. It looked less like the place I spent most of my weekend evenings and a lot more like my recollections of nights out in Atlanta. 

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that people are now afraid to walk in their own neighborhoods.

We lived in Minneapolis for about 5 years, and it was a nice area then. However, the schools were becoming increasingly dystopian and the last straw for us was when the teachers started telling kids to report their parents if they were spanked or disciplined. So we left with no regrets in the early 1980s.

Chaos, disorder and of course violence are political tactics for blacks and of course the Left which uses them. Drive you out rule over a sh*tpile but at least they will be ruling and extracting.

I vote we send Boomercons to the South Pacific to build runways and control towers, same results.

It’s not even just there. In Texas. About a decade ago, moved back into a suburb lived in as a kid. Not the wealthiest part, but the part of town with a Ferrari dealership nearby, in the 80s. Last few years, wife, reasonably, won’t take the kids by herself to the big box store down the road now, due to risk of them being taken. Yes, we’re leaving, shaking the dust off our feet, digging in where we go next. A place with community.

I feel the exact same way about Nashville. The Nashville I remember doesn't exist. It is so far removed from the city I knew and loved that what exists today may as well be called Nashlanta or Atlashville.. or some other nightmare.

The name Nashville still conjurs up nostalgia for me. Hearing the names of the streets and such brings back memories. The bombing on Second Avenue hit me pretty hard because I spent so much time there, but it only lasted seconds. once I saw the video I realized it was the same name but it wasn't the same Second Avenue. it was some new monster wearing a Second Avenue skin suit. and just like that all feeling disappeared.

Go to EVERY municipal planning and building committee meeting and speak vehemently against high density housing and get your friends to do so also, because public spaces aren't a requirement but zero-responsibility, income-subsidized housing is. High Density Housing is VD's "stutzpunkt" strategy in reverse and adopted for the left - hives of voters to manipulate emotionally and gin up to hate the middle class and the American way of life.

The same thing happened to my hometown of Tulsa. The city becomes worse and worse every few months. My old neighborhood is unlivable for a family. Homeless encampments pop up in the median between highways. And, in fact, there’s usually panhandlers at the most used highway exit ramps. A friend of mine took notice that the Black people who are there now are not of the same phenotype as the blacks who have always lived in Tulsa. He thinks these are the Californians who are now streaming in to ruin new territory.

Too many of us have the same basic story, I grew up in Farmington outside of Detroit, after Detroit already had its Minneapolis/Portland years. In a way, I can tell you what to expect if you don't already know.
Everyone with any value or values left Detroit, beginning in the late 1960s after some major poc riots, mostly to the suburbs. One of the 1st suburbs was southfield, which, by the 1980s was becoming infested by the poc that were tired of 2 decades of decline in Detroit.
By the 90s there were virtually no productive citizens living in Detroit, they all created a ring of mostly wealthy, mostly white suburbs outside of Detroit. In southfield, by 2000 was majority poc and I remember a news story about how the black residents of southfield were fed up with the new black residents still leaving Detroit because they would act "uncivilized" in southfields quiet neighborhoods.

Anyway, 5 decades after the riots, Detroit went from 2 or 3 million people in the 1960s to 500k-600k today. The ring of wealthy white suburbs is looking like a UN multiracial zone where my previously wealthy white home of Farmington now has a very large black eastern block, middle-eastern northern block (they are leaving for Dearborn to escape the encroaching blacks from southfield), and red dot Indians flooding in en masse in the west and south of Farmington. My daughters kindergarten class was about 1/4 to 1/3 white this year as we look to move out of Michigan.

Now, out in Brighton and Howell, 30-40 minutes nw of Detroit, 30-40 minutes south of Flint, diversity is popping up in some of the last wealthy white suburbs. Sure, there are some wealthy enclaves closer to Detroit, but if you travel 5 minutes from that enclave, you're back in diversity rich lands.
Unsurprisingly, things that were new and nice a few years ago are dingy and littered with garbage. Plastic bags seem to grow on trees even in the "nicer" diverse areas.

We all were told for 3 decades now that Detroit was about to make a comeback... other than the casinos and sports areas, it's all been a lie.
Get out now, it won't get better til it collapses or burns down. And even then, if the poc and their culture of vultures remain, it'll still find a way to get worse.

Importing foreign savages into your city is never a good idea.

Blogger The Propaganda Resort April 23, 2021 12:45 PM  

I live in a small city, and even without a high-profile "racial" incident and subsequent riots, it has no less than transmogrified over the last 15 years - and on hyper drive the last 5. I'm sure 50 years ago the city could almost have been described as glorious, and while it wasn't at that former glory 15 years ago, at least it was safe to walk around.

There are now homeless encampments directly across the street from decent - not upscale, but decent - restaurants in the downtown. In addition to that particular encampment, the popular bar/downtown area in general is now teeming with homeless at all hours of the day and night, so when you're walking with your girlfriend or wife or group of friends, you'll no doubt walk by several homeless and not unlikely be confronted by a few.

The people largely responsible here are the type who are into a now-predictable mix of vinyl records, weed, kombucha, micro-breweries, critical race theory, feminism, organic food, and if not a staunch atheist, then some kind of new age "spirituality."

These people and what they are doing is an abomination, and I want to know when it will stop - or rather, when it will have to.

For Minneapolis, Rochester and St. Cloud, agreed. But for Bemidji, I am hopeful it is not too late... it would be better to have the area behind you secured from the word go, than to be distracted dismantling the leftist infestation in every town over 1,000 people. The left invests much in disrupting the right's ability to organize, and a giant violent woke tumor is just what the doctor ordered to paralyze a local population to act.

I grant you may be right on Bemidji also, I don't know. I was driving through a tiny town in SW Wisconsin, I can't even recall the name, it had maybe 500 people, was 100 miles from anything resembling a large town, and I saw a procession of 15-20 Sikhs walking down the sidewalk in their Sunday best. So it IS broad and deep. But there still must be towns where its not too late?

Things you don't hear about in the news... My once award-winning high school now has police and metal detectors at all entrances and a large percentage of the student body is homeless and will never graduate but it ranks high on "student body diversity" so its all good. Hilariously, Covid has caused a clash between the BOE and teachers. The BOE is desperate to open up the school for the well-being of poor students (imported from Chicago) but they can't convince the teachers who are routinely spit on by the very same students that it is safe to go back nor can they acknowledge publicly that this a primary reason the school is still closed. And I guarantee before Covid being spit at was considered a badge of honor by these teachers and even with Covid still not enough to change the way they vote.

Bingo. This is one reason broad-franchise democracy is completely untenable. People like this aren't psychologically fit to make important community decisions, and frankly I think they subconsciously know it so they don't really take their votes seriously. They would never admit it, but deep down they assume someone else - an Alpha - is making the real decisions so they're free to vote any moronic way they want.

I live in a Western Canadian city with a population of just over 300,000.My old neighbourhood of the mid 1960s to mid 1980s has changed so much that I am quite saddened to even visit it.There might have been welfare in the 70s but most fathers worked in the local flour mill, the meat packing plant or, like mine, in a warehouse.Others were carpenters, mechanics or truckers. If mothers worked it was after the kids got older and they worked part-time as store clerks or waitresses. The mill,meat plant and warehouse are all gone now and welfare has increased. The old neighbourhood is more "diverse" but what stores are still there are shabby. The cafe that we kids hung out at sipping pop closed up and became a tattoo parlor.The old neighbourhood had it's petty crime but now shootings are more prominent and there's been cases of arson. So it's not just the large U.S. cities that have changed but even much smaller ones in the middle of the Canadian prairies. Even 20 years ago I'd visit the old neighbourhood. The confectionary where I bought candy and comic books as a kid after school was still there.Now, I'd rather avoid it.

University ave runs from Mpls to St. Paul. It used to be the "main drag." Then I-94 was built (replaced a mainly black neighborhood) took most of the traffic and the area declined. Then they built the light rail which construction killed many businesses. Then it really picked up. Lots of new shops, many immigrant run. It looked great. Then the GF riots came and many were smashed or burned. I recall the Wallmart was shut down but that may predate the GF killing.

Being remote is not always safe anymore. I do not know the legal details, but apparently once you have a section 8 voucher for subsidized housing you can use it anywhere but there may not be housing near where you live. I may get the details wrong. Dubuque IA is a 3 hour drive west of Chicago. They had subsidized housing and gave priority to city, then county, then state residents. The Obama DOJ sued as this was 'racist' and had a huge number of lawyers so the city caved and allowed people from Chicago to have equal priority.

Also, meat packers and other employers can effectively import low skilled workers which increases the public costs which they dump on the taxpayers. E.g. there are already low skilled workers who work for low pay and would require welfare benefits to survive but there are aliens who will work for even less. If Cargill had to pay for added welfare costs they would sooner hire American citizens. Instead they import more low skilled workers and externalize the social costs such as schools, hospitals, police, and welfare. So meat packers will destroy the local towns and make them pay for it.

Refugees and people granted asylum have as much a right to welfare as a US born citizen. Illegal aliens do not have have a legal right but I would guess they do anyway. Anyone know how common this is?

I found this gem long ago. It summarizes some of the issues with resettling Somali refugees in MN. Remote is not necessarily safe.
Here is a 12 min video clip of a Willmar MN meeting where a guy discusses the costs of bringing in immigrants for the local meat packing plant. Also, MN gives "state aid" to poor counties to pay some for schools.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhiB8mtQ3Pg&t=210s
This meeting took place in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota on July 7, 2015

Finally, a little OT, this shows how little the US govt or MSM care about bringing in the third world. This is little known.

The video below says 2 million illegals were collecting this Additional Child Tax Credit back then by filing using an ITIN instead of a social security number which they lacked. The law said the child had to be a US citizen AND reside in the US with the tax filer, so they ignored both requirements. The illegals might list 5 relatives back in MX as dependent children even though they were not US citizens and never set foot in the US. $2000 refund per kid. ON trailer had 24 children 'living there.' Now the law requires a SS number for the kids but still gives $500 per kid without one.

These problems are exacerbated by the fact that the orcs have the most mobile job of all::: being ward of the state. When you can just take your kids to small town whiteopia without even having a job and just get welfare and section 8 there, new viral sites open up everywhere. I'm so suck of it. Fuk all these people and enablers.

"What were the 80s/90s like?" is a regular topic on the chans. When we tell them, they think we have to be making it up.


Tell them about the 50's and they'll think it was a different world entirely.

Thing is, they'd be pretty much right.

When a whole race of people can't wait for any opportunity to burn down their neighbor's stores and homes and bring terror to their own street they are not countrymen they are parasites and invaders to be destroyed. Seems like only this thinly working pc culture is stopping a fully justified reconquista by calling it all racism.

Dubuque IA is a 3 hour drive west of Chicago. They had subsidized housing and gave priority to city, then county, then state residents.

One of the weak points of white communities is that we tend to have an abundance of aid for those willing to take it. Small white towns have more charitable folks who would like to help at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen than there are clients, so you could have that infrastructure for helping the poor without it getting overwhelmed or becoming a problem.

But when higher levels of government funnel blacks into those communities, always accompanied by drugs, they quickly overwhelm those services and then some. Suddenly the nice white charitable people can't keep up, and they're supporting a foreign invasion that resents them for not providing even more.

The answer is obvious: if you want to protect your town from invasion, get rid of the infrastructure that would support that population. Get rid of all the homeless shelters, rehab clinics, and halfway houses that you can. Get rid of anything that attracts the lazy or the dependent. That goes against the instincts of nice white people, of course, who see the initial wave of dependents and think helping them will make it better. But it won't; it'll only draw more. If you want to conserve your town, you'll have to be an asshole about it, to the extent that you can as long as there's a government to keep you from acting more directly.

I'd bet on the Reconquista starting in Detroit. Five out of six murders do not get solved. Granted, you can kind of fill in who the murderers are,once you see the murdered. At some point, some black somewhere is going to figure out going Nat Turner on an immigrant.

I doubt it, from what I'm reading: right now Hispanics bully blacks, and the black quits their job. The white person uses the word N to even sing a song alongside their black friends, and they get fired immediately.

Maybe it's Hispanic versus Chinese for the final boss fight. MENA seems to have taken over South American ruling positions, so that fight has already happened.

I might note that the (((usurers))) will probably be able to buy up a lot of cheap property now, then lobby for heavy police spending in a year or two, and enjoy huge profits when things become safer. Pretty sure that is a side-bet everytime something like this comes up.

I am reviewing and re-thinking my exit strategy along the logic of The Schlieffen Plan, but because things change constantly without our knowledge there are always weaknesses.

Cities are out. Suburbs are very soon to be out. You've go to go farther and out to places where two people standing in the same patch of area is considered a crowd.

I recall Thomas Sowell being on a talk show with several liberals clucking about how bad it was for blacks before due to all the discrimination. Sowell replied that he used to sleep on the fire escape to escape the summer heat in Harlem and never feared for his safety.

Seems people are leaving public schools. A good trend.

I have not been in Linden Hills in a long time. It is an area West of Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun. Still around 90% white and 2% black. Expensive real estate. The HS is SW HS 47% white, 26% black. I imagine many send kids to private HS if they can. People who live ON the Mpls lakes certainly do not send kids to public schools. They vote democrat as I recall.

I just read that
But Southwest Minneapolis enrollment has actually declined by 601 students, or 5%, since June. That has included a 236-student, or 23.8%, decrease in kindergarten enrollment and a 295-student decrease in grades 1-5 enrollment.
In Linden Hills, kindergarten enrollment at Lake Harriet Lower School has decreased by 57 students, or 39%, since June. That’s the largest single-grade decline in Minneapolis.

Me: It may be because people are sick of the distance learning. Maybe people are leaving. This seen elsewhere. For people outside the US, here many school districts' teachers were refusing to teach in person because of covid. Distance learns sucks especially for younger students and many minorities never even sign on.

I wonder if banning rental properties would solve the threat of section 8. I know the more violent diversity don't go to South/Southwest Texas or NM because no matter what courts rule they're terrified of the Spanish language.

Several men from my Parish are going to be dying a land buy within two years together, building our own and fortifying of need be is the plan.

Talk about Atlanta; I was told in the 90s that the mall where I used to work and go to movies and bowling had the highest auto theft occurrence in the metro area. Northeast plaza is the name of the mall. I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to search for the demographic trends in the area.
