A reader in Northern Virginian, the Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy, just sent us this note about an event everyone in NoVa should be aware of:
On Monday, October 17th, there will be a pro-Islamic ‘Refugee’ presentation in Arlington, VA from 7-9 PM. The location is:
St. Ann Roman Catholic Church Hall
5300 N. 10th St.
Arlington, VA 22205
Please get this news out so that truth-tellers can descend upon them in droves. The keynote speakers will be Anastasia Brown, director of Refugee Services, HHS, and Patricia S. Maloof, program director, migration and refugee services, Arlington Catholic Charities.
The church is just off I66, close to where George Mason crosses. I know the area fairly well. Just down Glebe Road from there is the Buckingham neighborhood, which is one of the most heavily culturally enriched areas in the USA. When I lived up there forty years ago it was mostly black and working-class whites, with some Mexicans mixed in. The last time I went down Glebe Road it seemed to be largely Arab/Afghan, with halal food markets, Arabic script on the signs, hijabs everywhere, etc. But I assume there are still some Salvadorans, Hondurans, and Guatemalans around, since the St. Ann church advertises Spanish-language masses and events.
I didn’t see any presentation on refugees listed in the upcoming events calendar on the church website. If anyone has definite information that this event will not occur at that place on that date, please let me know, and I’ll post an update and take down the notice.
Update: An alert commenter named Bob found a listing of Monday’s event in this PDF document at the St. Ann website.
