A U.S. lawmaker, expressing concern about the lives of Afghan women when most U.S. troops leave the country in 2014, said those who want to do so should be allowed to come to the United States:

“I’m really concerned about these women,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told a House Armed Services subcommittee on April 25. “I think everyone on this panel is very concerned about these women…But I think there is something we can do. And that is to create a refugee status for any Afghan woman who wants to leave the country and is seeking asylum in our country.

“And that we should put in place now a procedure whereby they can be informed of that opportunity and be granted that opportunity, so that we can at least save the lives of those who are not so embedded in the culture and want to find a way to free themselves of what I believe will become, without a question, more oppressive than what’s going on right now, under our noses with us there.”


David Sedney, a deputy assistant defense secretary for Afghanistan, said told the panel the Defense Department shares Speier’s concerns.

He told Speier he’d raise the issue of asylum for Afghan women with his colleagues at the State Department.

    Liberals somehow love Islam and women’s rights at the same time…

      Yeah, I also noticed this.

      The worst Islamic throat cutter terrorists deserve to be married to these idiot Lib American women – a fate worse than death.

          Like I said last time Mr. Moderator, you guys need to find a way to delete the spam, but keep the avatar…..

          • Amber

            Your African half on the loose here? Somehow I doubt the kind of white female interested in a site like this would have an interest in a multiracial individual.

          • Distant Observer

            I have been watching this for some time now. The fact that some here, given the purpose of a website like this, will respond to “multiracial individual” as if this person is an accepted group member is telling. From a sociological perspective it is telling because it shows that decades of cultural subversion played out via media and academia has had its intended effect. Since Brown vs Board of Education there has been a push toward forced integration which inevitably leads to miscegenation.

            I can see the casual acceptance of this by those claiming to be racially aware by their acceptance of a “multiracial individual” posting on a white racial website. Very interesting. Continue. I am taking notes.

          • a multiracial individual

            This (bold) website often posts editorials from non-Whites who advocate positions that would further assist you in your aims. Do you find that practice unsavory as well? If your interest is large scale, long term, racial and cultural preservation of the European, then why does it matter where useful information (like articles by Juan Williams or Satoshi Kanazawa) comes from? In fact, given the toxic environment that liberals have created for (white) race realists, one would think that allies like me would be somewhat appreciated. Guess not.

          • Distant Observer

            Yes but they would be abhorred by a website like this let alone actually post here. I have cast myself as a disinterested observer so as to study this phenomenon with an unbiased mind. It isn’t so much you that I am studying but rather the effect, or lack thereof, that you are having on group members claiming to be racially aware. Do they accept you as an ingroup member? Ignore you? Reject you? What do you represent to them?

            Every known race of people have in place cultural barriers meant to keep racial aliens outside the tribal group. This is achieved in various ways. Religion, peer pressure, geographic boundaries, and so on.

            Based on what I have seen here so far indicates that these cultural boundaries have indeed been broken down even to the point that you are accepted as an ingroup member on a White racialist website.

            Of course this does not bode well for our purposes….

          • a multiracial individual

            [Based on what I have seen here so far indicates that these cultural boundaries have indeed been broken down even to the point that you are accepted as an ingroup member on a White racialist website]
            Only a few people around here are warm towards me. I will say that I was thinking about what you wrote. People enjoy the company of “civilized” people (whatever their race). Whites and Asians do not avoid Blacks and Hispanics because they do not like their physical features. They avoid them because a disturbingly high portion of Blacks and Hispanics act improperly. If Blacks and Hispanics started acting like Whites and Asians, you would actually see violence-free racial diversity (much like you find in White/Asian suburbs right now.

          • a multiracial individual

            I apologize for my off-color remark directed at a spammer. I suspect you are correct about the dating thing. That is why I have not tried to “pickup chicks” here. A female poster here might avoid dating someone like me because she fears “regression toward the mean.” Although in my case, the IQ regression would not be so dire (105+105+100+85= 395/4= 98.75) I apologize again if I offended you. Be well.

    • fenway23

      and liberals claim to love gay rights too. Go figure

      • Amber

        But most of all, liberals love multiracial individuals. That is their hope and design for the future. Do you understand that?

      • Shattered2013

        Liberals accept anyone as long as they are immoral.

    • JerriCurl

      Well I suppose those women could come here and produce multiracial individuals. That is what liberals ultimately want. Get rid of Whites and you get rid of racism.

  • Kathy M

    No they should not be allowed to come here! We’ve got more than enough non-whites now. Who made the U.S. the world’s nanny? A better approach would be to send our feminists over there. One-way trip of course.

    • concernedcollegekid

      I know a couple of REALLY serious anti-“patriarchy” feminists who really, seriously think Islam “does not oppress” women and go to great lengths to defend it. (I know one girl who is obsessed with defending both transgender people and Muslims – how many transgender Muslims, exactly, does she know??) It never occurs to her that white males came up with the freedoms that enable her to speak her mind and be anything more than a submissive baby-making machine. I would almost volunteer to live under Sharia law myself if it meant I would be able to watch her have to also… hahaha.

      • How many transgender Muslims would come out in Afghanistan?

        • Saint Somebody

          In Afghanistan and Iran, men all want to poke adolescent males. As they view it, the shame is being the “goat” (i.e., all shame on the poked, not the poker). Not too different from the attitude in the joint in our own wonderful country.

        • The__Bobster

          How many doctors could they find there that would be willing to mutilate their genitals?

      • Eve

        Well you’re right on one point; some of the islamic countries actually sponsor transsexual surgery – for gays, that is. as they regard homosexuality as a mental/physical illness that needs to be medically corrected. Iran is one example; maybe point this out to your feminist friends. OTOH, you only vote and attend college because of white women feminists so where you get the bizarre notion that white males came up with the freedoms to be more than a submissive baby-making machine is utterly beyond me.

    • Rudyard

      I’ve been to Afghanistan. And through a bit of luck have managed to see a fair number of burkha-less females. They are White. White! Do I need to say it again? White!

      • hugo

        Just like the Tsarnaev’s.

        • rightrightright

          The Chinese are also white but they aren’t European. It shows.

      • evilsandmich

        I was thinking that: we can loot their white women; no kids or men allowed. 😉

  • David Ashton

    Ethnic discrimination? Surely ANY woman who wants to leave their own country and live in the USA should be allowed to do so.
    Gender discrimination? Surely any MAN….ditto.
    Will it come to that?
    Yesterday’s impossible often becomes today’s unbearable.

  • Winston Merryweather

    Let them sort out their own problems. We’ve got our own to deal with. We should withdraw from every Islamic land on the face of the earth. Keep them out of here at the same time.

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      Amen. I think we are at war with islam, whether we like it or not. You might not be interested in islam, but islam is interested in you. However, we have to go into a cold war type stance, stop the hot war fighting and attempts at nation building (you can’t build any kind of nation you’d want to live in on a muslim foundation), keep them out of our country, and conserve our resources.

      • Sloppo

        I agree. I just don’t think you can make a civilization out of a people who’ve been inbreeding for 14 centuries and believe some dishonest mass-murdering pedophile-pirate is “humanity’s highest example”. Only a brutal despot can lead that kind of population.

  • concernedcollegekid

    I feel bad for the Afghan women, but Afghan women will have Afghan sons and biology largely determines culture. As a white woman I don’t want to live around a theoretically unlimited amount of Afghan men.

    “Rep. Jackie Speier” is thinking solely with her emotions here and not rationally considering the potential future impact of basing policy on her current feelings of empathy toward Muslim women. The West + Muslims has just too often not had a splendid result. We should not keep trying new ways to put the two together in the hopes that this time it will miraculously turn out well.

    • Or any other Muslim men, Lebanese, Pakistani, Afghans or whatever.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Exactly. That is one of the main problems with letting the women come. They might not cause too much trouble themselves (though they would undoubtedly immediately go on every welfare program available), but they will end up popping out 6-8 children per woman, half of whom will be male.

      Those boys will be the ones causing major problems. Letting in Afghan women means letting in their sons, who will begin raping, assaulting, and murdering whites at the first opportunity.

      • Eve

        They will assuredly take the resources meant for white women who are oppressed by gender in the US…oh I forgot, they’re already taken by blacks, hispanics, and professional welfare queens!

      • GM (Australia)

        Re Muslim women, not only will their sons be involved in all the criminal activities that we normally associate with these people, these mothers will defend their sons and protest their innocence absolutely.

        As for foolish white women who get involved with Islamic males their first reality check is when they meet their mother-in-law and/or when hubby confiscates the passport.

  • The__Bobster

    A U.S. lawmaker, expressing concern about the lives of Afghan women when most U.S. troops leave the country in 2014, said those who want to do so should be allowed to come to the United States.

    These women will be certain to bring with them the very people they are allegedly fleeing from.

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      True. All refugees we have now should be moved to internment-type camps where they have to work 50-60 hours a week for their three hots and a cot as well as protection from the molestation from which they fled. If they don’t like it, they can try to be refugees somewhere else.

  • No way in hell do we heed to import a bunch of Muzzies to the US, this woman is nuts…..

  • You tell ’em, Jackie! The sissy, castrated white steer (stag?) isn’t going to do anything but suck his thumb as you pass legislation. Now is the time to strike!
    Don’t worry about a thing, Jackie. The Republican Party is going to whine like little babies who need their diapers changed, but will they actually DO anything to stop you?
    The GOP will probably try to reach out for their votes.

  • bigone4u

    There are a billion sob stories around the world that I don’t care about. Muzzie women in Afghanistan is one of those stories. They have done nothing to deserve asylum in the USA, just as I have done nothing to justify having their sick culture inflicted on me.

  • Andy

    Why don’t we donate an unused bit of Alaska, some farm tools, and some walls?

    • Better yet, there are thousands of miles of southeast California that is just right for them. 29 Palms is just the place. Muslim women and lonely U.S. Marines out in the middle of nowhere.
      I mean, it could be worse. If you had to choose between a woman who grew up afraid of getting executed for even looking at a man other than her husband, or… Jackie Speier?

      • NYB

        There’s plenty of room in Israel in the Negev.

  • Luca

    Oh poor Afghan women. Please Jackie don’t stop there! Don’t forget about the poor women in Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Palestine, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Egypt, Libya and Indonesia. And don’t forget to let them indulge in chain migration and welfare benefits. After all once they are legal and their anchor babies are of age think of all the new Democratic voters we will have.

    Another brain-dead liberal zombie in office.

    • David Ashton

      Another idea: let Israel take them in return for continued aid?
      Has Ms Speier any contacts there?

    • Actually, Jackie Speier is not brain dead at all. She knows what political party these refugees will vote for. The brain dead are the republicans who will try to reach out to these soon to be new citizens.

  • The Jim Jones cult left Jackie Speier to die, (she was Leo Ryan’s Chief of Staff and went with him to check out Jonestown), but she miracuously survived. You’d think she would have learned about the dangers of political cults and avoid them.

    • She didn’t drink enough of the kool aid.

    • dukem1


  • So what they are saying is just because you are an Afghan woman, that should give you a free pass to come to the US? What about Pakistani women living in the Swat Valley in Pakistan where the Taliban have been active? Do they get the same rights as the Afghan women?

    • Eve

      The US actually terms survivors of rape in these countries as political refugees yet denies and blames white american females who suffer rape. We aren’t even afforded anywhere near the kind of rights and financial subsidization these non-citizens in some foreign country are.

      • These women have more rights than servicewomen who get raped while serving their country. This angers me.

  • TXPeggySue

    Instead of importing these women, let’s just arm them instead! And the Copts, too.

    • Why not? I think it is a great idea. Some of these women may even outshoot the Taliban.

  • Henry Clay

    When will a national organization arise in the United States that addresses the holocaust that is killing white South Africans by the thousands? South African whites are suffering from extreme affirmative action and have been stripped through through firearms confiscation of their ability to protect themselves. They are facing extermination.

    An effort must be organized to help White South Africans–our brothers and sisters. What can be done? We must reach beyond conservatives in this effort. I wonder if Bishop Tutu could be recruited? He is speaking out about the failures of the new South Africa, especially in the collapse of law and order.

    • I just saw a documentary on Australia’s Dateline SBS series. They showed that the South African police are no different than they were under apartheid except that the majority of the officers are blacks shooting other blacks. There was a massacre of miners who were armed with machetes and other knives and they were shot dead by the South African police even though the demonstrators were separated from the police with a fence.

  • Sloppo

    I think they should grant Jackie Speier an opportunity that she can’t refuse to live exclusively among Afghani Muslims in Afghanistan for a couple of years before anyone listens to her recommendations that Americans should be forced to share real estate with them.

  • dogbone

    That’s strange. The woman is jewish (her father fled the evil Germans that wanted a place of their own). Why doesn’t she send them to Israel?

    First it is the women, then it is the gays, than it is the fat people, than the handicapped, than who knows what. In the end the only people that will be left in Afghanistan is white people. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

    • The Israelis do not want them. The last thing they need is more Muslims to rally to the Palestinian cause.

        Do the Zionists in the USA want them?

        On top of all else, she wants increased gun control, including bans on certain types other than for hunting.

    Billions of dollars wasted, too many American lives sacrificed and wounded, but we’ll just let them all move here. Unbelievable. If this woman wasn’t such an idiot I’d swear she was a Congresswoman from California.

    America is now like being on a rush hour train headed into Manhattan with no seats open, people standing in the aisles the entire ride, yet the conductor keeps saying “COME ON IN 3RD WORLDERS! PLENTY OF ROOM!” as the passengers look around confused realizing there’s already way too many people as it is.

    Immigration has already spelled the death of America was we knew it.

  • guest

    Wouldn’t that be half the country

    Yes, and once they are here they can immediately apply for family visas to bring over their husbands, brothers, sons, whatever, to bring in the other half. Don’t worry, they will thoroughly background check them all, by calling up the Afghan embassy and asking, “hey, we have a guy named Mohamed Khan here. Is he a good guy? Ok great, thanks!”

    And even though they are all conservative Muslims they will still vote Democratic because they know where their foodstamps are coming from.

    • rightrightright

      A better solution would be to do a deal with India which is a democracy and not a sharia law state as the Muslims are in the minority. Afghans and Indians look pretty much the same so they would fit in. Let them take refuge there. No handouts there of course. They would have to work.

      Won’t happen, of course.

      I truly resented this woman’s sanctimonious tone.

  • cadmium

    Yes the liberals are very concerned about these women until they arrive in white countries and receive the same treatment within their muslim communities. Magically, when islam comes to whitey land, it becomes a beautiful culture beyond reproach. It’s something to do with the visa process I suppose.

    Luckily, muslim women are very infertile. At least at 13 when they get married off to their 30 year old cousins.

    Is there any way to force this woman to live in a middle eastern country for a year in the same status as a peasant? Let her enjoy the fruits of Simon-Pure 7th Century Islam and see if that changes her tone. I would think it would do for a lot of women. There is a feminist named Phyllis Chesler who lived this nightmare close to 50 years ago and has little love for Islam.
