In Europe, if not in the United States, some people are beginning to grasp that just maybe they made a mistake when they decided to welcome millions of immigrants over the last several decades. The most recent European to get it is former West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, who has been making noises about the... Read More
Harvard scholar Samuel P. Huntington's Who Are We?, undoubtedly the most important criticism of mass immigration by a major academic figure in the last 50 years, has now been published, and if theonslaught against it has not been quite the gang rape some predicted, the establishment embrace of the book has not exactly been a...

For most of this month, while the rest of the country worried about what was happening in Iraq, the state of Maryland had other concerns—namely, whether its governor, Robert L. Ehrlich, is too insensitive to the Tower of Babel into which mass immigration has helped convert his state and the nation. Mr. Ehrlich, a Republican... Read More
Thanksgiving is over, but the country is probably lucky it took place at all. Various reports disclose that the war against Thanksgiving is almost as ferocious as those against such other evil institutions as Christmasand the Confederate Flag. A story in the Washington Times last week discussed the war and who's behind it. As you... Read More
On the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court unbosomed its wisdomon why whites should allow special privileges to less qualified non-whites in admissions to elite law schools, the Washington Postpublished a huge front-page story on the merits of college courses designed to instigate racial guilt into whatever white students are still permitted to enroll....

If you're like most Americans, you probably have not yet recovered from the surfeit of self-indulgence you enjoyed on Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May, which seems to be the nation's newest holiday and one almost intentionally designed to remind us that we are not really a nation anymore at all. Of course in... Read More
If the war with Iraq has accomplished nothing else, it has offered a bottomless bonanza for media celebrations of the New World America that the military side of the war is pounding into reality. The New World America is what the United States will be after it is transformed by mass immigration and racial and... Read More
Black history month may be over, but a poster prominently displayed in a McDonald's near my neighborhood tells us we should be observing it every day of the year. One way of doing so might be to recall that blacks used to make up most of the workers at the fast-food palace. Today, most are... Read More
Once again, as so often since Sept. 11, the arrest of American-born terrorist Abdullah al-Muhajir, or Jose Padilla, or whatever his name this week may be, shows what's wrong with the multiracialist mythology on which contemporary America purports to be founded. For all the fashionable goop and hoop-la about the glories of "diversity," the truth... Read More
Does anyone today still seriously maintain that the mass immigration of the last 30 years is not transforming America? The classic argument in support of immigration, especially amongconservatives and neo-conservatives, has always been that the immigrants would assimilate to the culture of their new homeland. Indeed, most conservatives believed that assimilation was the prerequisite for... Read More
It's a funny thing about the politics of the names of sports teams. If a school or city calls its team the "Rebels" (as the high school in my home town once did, back in the Dark Ages), or has a team mascot in the form of a Confederate colonel (as Ole Miss still does,... Read More
The first Independence Day of the new century—maybe the last century of the American nation as it has historically existed—was greeted by a hot flash of brain waves from the nation's illuminati. The main burden of their reflections on national independence seemed to be that it's time to call it all off and start over.... Read More
While Time magazine's cover story this week gurgled cheerfully over the happy "whole new world" it spies in the disappearance of the U.S. border with Mexico, a more sober article in the June issue of American Demographics analyzes the new borders that are sprouting up—inside what used to be the United States. The second article,... Read More
In a rare fit of courage, Virginia Gov. James Gilmore last week put his name to a proclamation declaring May to be "European-American Heritage Month," but alas, the fit did not endure. [VDARE note: the Proclamation has now vanished from the gubernatorial website, although Virginia Beer Month and white canes – for the blind –... Read More
Having ripped down every Confederate flag in sight, the armies of tolerance are now aiming their big guns at state songs their generals find offensive. Virginia's quaint ballad, "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny,"(play) was retired a few years ago, and now Maryland's anthem, "Maryland, My Maryland", (play) is in the gun sights. The chief... Read More
After the orgy of patriotic indulgence in which most Americans no doubt engaged over the President's Day weekend, probably no one wants to hear much more about national holidays just now. Nevertheless, hear about them we must, since two congressmen are sponsoring legislation to change President's Day back to George Washington's Birthday. Back in the... Read More
