Haiti literally a shithole

with 64 comments

Reported by NPR:

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the largest cities in the world without a central sewage system. There are no sewers connecting sinks, showers and toilets to hulking wastewater treatment plants. Most of the more than 3 million people in the metro area use outhouses, and much of that waste ends up in canals, ditches and other unsanitary dumping grounds where it can contaminate drinking water and spread disease.

  2. This reads like a good business opportunity! A sandbox where a few motivated individuals could build society in their own image as long as they had the backing of US military might. (Personally, I’d be willing to go with yakov to set up their hvac and plumbing systems.)

    If we are going to be letting in vast amounts of people in from these countries we might as well colonize them for the US’ benefit. If their sovereign governments oppose this let them attempt to stop us. At this point, if our leaders continue to drastically change America then why not drastically change the Western Hemisphere by making it entirely American? Manifest Destiny on a continental scale.

    • you could probably do it peacefully by buying bits of the coast off the Haitian government and turning them into tourist resorts, employing local people, and gradually expanding out and buying more and more territory.

      • I had that idea once. Actually, my idea was sex tourism to Haiti. You’d have to make sure the girls are HIV neg, plus free of all other diseases obviously. Clean ’em up, dress ’em nicely, pay ’em a fair wage, and I’m sure you’d have many applicants for the job.

      • The problem is that as your resorts became succesful, pressure would mount within the Haitian government to expropriate them just like what happened with white owned farms in Zimbabwe. Few people would have sympathy for you since you are an evil racist exploiting local labor. If you used foreign workers, then you are an evil racist who won’t hire local labor.

        That’s the plot of the Michel Houellebecq book “Platform.” Professionally organized 3rd World vacations, with prostitute add-ons.

      • “you could probably do it peacefully by buying bits of the coast off the Haitian government and turning them into tourist resorts, employing local people, and gradually expanding out and buying more and more territory”

        Already has happened. Last May we were on a cruise that stopped at Royal Caribbean’s private resort of Labadee on the north coast. We went on an excursion to the nearby village of Labadee, where there was a display of Haitian dance* and music, and the guide (a young man who studied in Canada) gave a talk about local life and culture. While the village was obviously rundown by American standards there was some construction in progress.
        * = two of the dancers were quite hott

      • “Actually, my idea was sex tourism to Haiti”

        During the Haitian cultural exhibition at the Labadee resort, which I mentioned in another comment, the guide mentioned twice that Haiti has severe criminal penalties for foreigners who have sex with underage Haitian girls. It was something totally unlike the otherwise lighthearted exhibition. I presume he said it for a very good reason.

        That’s to their credit then. Give credit where it’s due. My idea is frankly a joke, but even in jest, would only include girls over 18. That said I doubt that most Haitians have reliable birth certificates.

        A small part of the reason Haiti is a shithole today is because it had a thriving sex tourism industry, which spread AIDs there.

  3. The thing about the shithole remark is that it’s Trump’s way of poking his finger directly in the eyes of the sanctimonious liberal douchebags who hound him. Those same liberals remind us daily that Trump is worse than cancer or Isis, so having said that what more can they possibly say now?

    • It appears that Canuckistan can no longer accept anymore migrants from these sh!tholes occupied by darkies.

      Both the Cakers and French Quebeckers will probably throw many of them back to the Meriproles, because Meriprolestan was their exit point.

      I’m sure your pretty boy Trudope has choked on his kind words that Canada welcomes everybody.

    • Rural yes, urban metro no. However public urination on walls is common even in urban metros.
      India is not monolithic – there are slums and shit holes and there are many many millionaires living in posh mansions and driving expensive cars and dining in fancy restaurants.

      The biggest thing I miss in the USA about India is having domestic help in the house. In india, even middle class and lower middle class can afford to have servants (domestic help) to clean floors, do laundry, cook, wash dishes etc. Unfortunately I do not earn enough in USA to pay someone to do all that.

      • I’m wondering how Marco Reuben sandwich is reacting to Trump’s sh!thole comment. After all, he’s a Trump supporter when it comes to getting the best immigrants to our shores. The garbage that flows into Florida from his motherland is telling. Poor mulatto-type Cubans are the ones being dumped into our shores — making Cuba less of a sh!thole.

        Mass Latin immigration has been the altright’s model immigration all along. Their model is Israel’s policy of allowing anyone who is 1/4 Jewish. In American terms that means most of Latin America can immigrate since most of the population is at least 25% white.

        And when the altfucktards finish importing most of Latin America to fish-shit Idaho where Spencer hangs out, they’ll really turn up the ethnic genetic strategic genius when they make their “ethnostate” 20% Muslim – just like Israel!

      • I have spent considerable time traveling and doing business in places where it’s normal for middle class people to have servants, i.e. Latin America. Here is what I observed:

        1. Your household help isn’t very good, and in most cases are illiterate dumbshits.
        2. If you employ a maid, there is a good chance her son(s), brother(s) and/or cousin(s) are gang members, so you’re never quite sure about your personal safety.
        3. Your help may steal from you, or aid other people in doing so.
        4. You’re expected to provide room and board. So, you have no privacy. Again, this comes back to safety concerns.
        5. On the off chance your help is any good, expect your better off friends or neighbors to poach them.
        6. You never know if your household help is being used by criminal elements. You cannot talk freely about anything regarding your travel plans or whereabouts, because that information could lead to you being kidnapped or worse.
        7. And because of that, you have to carry a weapon and take a different route to and from work everyday. Yes, even middle class people.
        8. Indirectly related, the quality of consumer goods in these places is horrible, and what is available is expensive compared to the US. Most Latin Americans who are middle class or better periodically make shopping trips to the US.
        9. On the plus side, if you’re a man and your maid is young and pretty, it’s expected that she’ll allow you to sleep with her. (A lesson Schwarzenegger obviously did not learn. But then again, Maria probably would not allow a young, attractive woman in the house at all.)
        10. And maybe worst of all, if you have kids, especially girls, the likelihood that they will develop into snotty, unpleasant, entitled, just godawful individuals is close to 100%.

    • Sgt Joe,
      No experience in Latin America. In India, it’s unwritten rule to not have cash lying around that maid can see.
      Once you find a gem (competent trustworthy maid) u try to keep them for as long as you can. Poaching is an issue but that’s your free marker at work. Not unheard of domestic help working same household for 5 years. Most help are not exclusive meaning they rotate 4-5 houses each day.
      Don’t know which country u got data from but NOBODY ever sleeps with their maid. Domestic help belongs to the lowest caste (in India), 99.9 % ugly and even if in rare cases pretty are low caste and u will not even think of doing anything remotely sexual. Think in terms of a banker or professor trying to sleep with a janitor or construction worker. 99.9% never happens. Doesn’t mean there are not a few creeps out there.
      Don’t know much about gangs in india.

  13. But on a more enlightened level. We shouldn’t be going around calling other nations shitholes. Especially if we are striving for a world where each ethnicity stays in their own territory and does not covet what the other groups have. A leader should at least show respect and politeness to those that look up to it. Should the most gifted student in the class say the other students come from shithole families?

    • The thing about shithole countries is that they need us more than we need them. If we even need them at all. Mostly we just need to keep the shitholers out.

      Which brings me to my real point. We need real data on this important question. Which is why I propose we create a way to track this. We’ll call it Leon’s Shithole Index and use it to track the percentage of a population that’s still shitting in holes. It could include people who shit in beaches, fields, ditches, etc as well as actual outhouses.

      • It’s all golden but this is the best part IMO, “Chain & Lottery were made worse” – it’s now fashionable to say you are in favor of strict border control. Hell, even Schumer looks into the camera and says that. He’s lying of course, but he says that.

        Chain migration esp. is where the rubber hits the road. It will, in our lifetimes, destroy this country. It might already have but I can’t afford to think that way. But the compounding fx of chain migration will within 30 years literally obliterate the USA.

        That’s what Schumer and his ilk want, but they can’t say so.

        I honestly can’t understand Schumer’s psychology. Does he think that if the US is demographically transformed, that the Israel lobby can survive?
