A Republican Intellectual Explains Why the Republican Party Is Going to Die

CLEVELAND — Avik Roy is a Republican’s Republican. A health care wonk and editor at Forbes, he has worked for three Republican presidential hopefuls — Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Marco Rubio. Much of his adult life has been dedicated to advancing the Republican Party and conservative ideals.

But when I caught up with Roy at a bar just outside the Republican convention, he said something I’ve never heard from an establishment conservative before: The Grand Old Party is going to die.

“I don’t think the Republican Party and the conservative movement are capable of reforming themselves in an incremental and gradual way,” he said. “There’s going to be a disruption.”

Roy isn’t happy about this: He believes it means the Democrats will dominate national American politics for some time. But he also believes the Republican Party has lost its right to govern, because it is driven by white nationalism rather than a true commitment to equality for all Americans.

“Until the conservative movement can stand up and live by that principle, it will not have the moral authority to lead the country,” he told me.

This is a standard assessment among liberals, but it is frankly shocking to hear from a prominent conservative thinker. Our conversation had the air of a confessional: of Roy admitting that he and his intellectual comrades had gone wrong, had failed, had sinned.

  3. But he also believes the Republican Party has lost its right to govern, because it is driven by white nationalism rather than a true commitment to equality for all Americans.

    See, what the hell is this? The American right lives in opposite land. Right-wing, by definition, is the ideological belief in social inequality. If a government is not nationalistic, it cannot be considered legitimate and therefore does not have the mandate to rule. If everyone was equal the nation can no longer be defined as a nation, and would become merely a commune.

    There’s nothing wrong with intellectualism. Western nations need right-wing intellectualism to counter centuries of left-wing intellectualism. The problem is that the American right does not want to speak from the core of right wing thought, and so they’ve spent like 50 years standing on side issues like small government or whatever. Do they realize that the right should seek out bigotry, not run from it? If the left isn’t constantly calling you a racist sexist or whatever, you’re not doing it right.

  4. Anything these establishment politicians say is always 180 degrees from the truth.

  5. Even a cuckservative such as Avik Roy can have insight. His Republican Party probably is going to die, because it serves no useful purpose when the politics become founded on racial identity. The GOP, if it is to exist at all, must be reconfigured as a white identity party, one in which an Indian such as Roy probably has no place. His much more natural home will be with the coalition of the fringes that now constitute the Democratic Party. If he doesn’t like that either, he’s free to go back to India–they have lots of political parties.

  6. Indian-American Hindu complains of white nationalism in America. It’s as relevant as a white American complaining about Hindu nationalism in India. In fact, the biggest Indian party, the BJP, is the main exponent of Hindu nationalism.
    Without Hindus, there would be no India. Without white Europeans, there would be no America. Any party that sustains and supports the interests of white people in America, necessarily helps preserve America.

  7. If they were really so effective at getting the white nationalist message out, the fact that more than 70% of each year’s birth cohort is white would mean the Republicans would be around for a long time to come.

    The GOP is a dying party because they are simply too whitebread in their ideas. It is easy and mindless to try to whip up support by dredging up ISIS rather than telling Black Americans that they are being kept on a modern plantation by the Dems, because the latter would really be controversial and might take a little intellect to sell.

  8. Agree. The political right has morphed into an ideology of liberalism with small government versus the leftist liberalism with big government. What is needed are parties that can put forward the wealth of analysis regarding the building of civilisation, as seen on the web. Europeans need to find a way to speak up for European achievements and lobby for European self-rule without resorting to total alienation of non-Europeans. The hour has come but sadly the men haven’t. No great leaders are stepping forward in US or EU despite the evident pool of intellectual and leadership ability seen on the web. Two examples are the research that has been done on the commonweal, and cousin marriage bans.

    For dudes like Roy Republican Party is “dying” because it nominated Donald Trump, a “Judas Goat” instead of Ted Cruz, the “Defender of Israel”.

  10. What motivates movement Republicans is not white nationalism, it’s “I got mine.” Social Darwinism. It just so happens that more people who “have theirs” are white. The Darwinists are indifferent to Las Vegas on the Hudson Banksterism, open immigration and an economically pathological health care system, because the perverse consequences of those Crony saturated domains do not measurably affect them. They really do “have theirs”.

    Which makes for an interesting conversation about Donald Trump. Trump’s admittedly incoherent message is against the cronied-up corporate and political organs that sustain the Social Darwinist model. So movement Republicans and the complicit MSM purposely painted Trump with the racist brush as a diversion away from Trump’s generalized message against the Darwinists that transcends race.

    I.e., Crony America hoses Americans of every race. A black or Hispanic American CITIZEN with crammed down wages or who is driven out of the workforce altogether by massive immigration is just as under-employed or unemployed as the white person. The systemically pathological wreck that is Obamacare is indifferent to skin color in making access to health care (not health insurance) infeasible for working class people.

    That said, Trump can be stupid and maybe even clueless. He should have pointed out that distinction when the MSM set off the David Duke stink bomb to purposely derail him. But he didn’t, and now the MSM is again taking the upper hand in dominating the propaganda as the compliant mouthpiece for the Cronies and the next corrupt parasitic hack to occupy the Oval Office, the haggard and odious HRC.

    Roy is partially correct. At this point in time, the Republican party is decomposing. However when the inevitable Implosion happens and that haggard 70+ year old mediocrity is sitting clueless in the Oval Office while it goes down, the Democrats will join them.

    We love America and our traditional way of life, and we don’t care if you are offended that more people are waking up to the increasing violence, intimidation, cruelty, and hatred that Africans and their ilk inflict on white and Asian americans every day.

    The Republican Party may deserve to die. We and our children don’t.

    Get out, Avik, and let real Americans and real men — the white European-American historic core of this country and our friends and allies of other backgrounds (sometimes spouses of other backgrounds) — defend our families and borders and restore our common language, Western culture, and prosperity.

  19. Banning first-cousin marriage is certainly a good idea without regard to the religious or racial background of the cousins. But it’s a bonus if that ban makes America or Europe less comfortable and convenient for the muslim savages.

    How about deporting people who are the descendants of first cousins, too? I’d really miss all those Jewish folks…. ;)

  20. Disclaimer: I don’t claim to be an expert on anything.

    Conservative is an ideology and Republican is a political party. I genuinely & sincerely believe that Conservative principles, when applied correctly, produce the best results. Leftist thinking is in denial of certain facts about human nature, disregards the principle of Causality, i.e. cause-and-effect relationships, and repeatedly runs afoul of the Law of Unintended Consequences.

    One reason why the Republican party has been dying for, in my opinion, twenty-odd years, is because they stopped being Conservatives. Example: It’s a basic-principle of Conservatism that government does not create jobs. Government creates the legal & physical infrastructure so that society can function and entrepreneurs & investors can engage in economic-activity, i.e. start businesses, a byproduct of which is creating jobs. By legal infrastructure I mean a criminal & civil justice system to protect people & property rights and enforce contracts. By physical infrastructure I mean roads, sewers, water, electrify, ports, airports, etc.

    But increasingly I hear Republicans promising to “if elected I’ll do this to create jobs” thereby betraying a basic Conservative principle.

    Do you remember the Terri Shivo fiasco? Twenty-odd years ago a man wanted to take his wife off life-support. She’d been brain-dead for something like twenty years. Her parents opposed it. Terri Shivo was not in a federal hospital, e.g. a VA hospital, and her husband wasn’t trying to transport her across state-lines therefore it wasn’t a federal matter. But Republicans in Congress chose to make it one. It was so very obvious that they were pandering to their pro-life constituency. It was so very obvious and so disgusting. I remember thinking that the Republican party had begun a slow death-spiral.

    The Republican party, as we know it, is likely doomed because they were collectively more concerned about getting reelected at all costs instead of focusing on good governance—which likely would’ve resulted in getting reelected. What will replace it I don’t know but we’re going to find out.

  21. It all depends on the dialogue. Who out in media land is challenging the currently accepted definition of racism? Most people are not racist but preferentialist. Instead of being defensive the right needs to start challenging the notion that europeans should want to live amongst non-european cultures. If non-europeans want to live in european culture with a commonweal and high trust that’s one thing but currently europeans are being made to accept low-trust extended family based cultures alongside high-trust culture and high-trust culture is inevitably being eroded. The only way to redress this trend is to make public and acceptable analyses of what european civilisation and culture mean.

    Very few whites have any interest in white nationalism. I assume the same thing goes for minorities.

  25. If that’s so, how come so many of us live in white countries? It’s nearing 10% or so in Western Europe, much more in the US. If China was set to become 50% Han Chinese by 2050, there would be egalitarians hung from every tree.

    Only a small number of whites are ideological bigots, but that can be improved with controlled education. Racial self-interest is racism by American standards.

    Going by your voting patterns, it seems over half of whites prefer homogeneity. That’s probably a low number relative to the rest of world, due to the west’s humanist beliefs, which is weaker in immigrants. Since assimilation will never be total, the increase in nonwhite population in the New World could be a slow death for western liberal democracy, ushing in social inequality over a few centuries. It wouldn’t be the entire continent, but if white and other nationalists play their cards right, we could all have our own piece.

The only ones for whom conservatism is a natural fit are Roy’s “cranky old white people” — and they’re dying off.

    Maybe Roy and company will be able to solve this problem. I hope they do. America needs a viable, intellectually serious right-of-center party.

    Because we now know what the alternative looks like. It’s Donald Trump.”

    I think for many natural fit conservative Americans the explanation for DJ Trump is “root hog or die.” It is very serious for them.

  33. Very interesting perspective.

  34. “The Republican party, as we know it, is likely doomed because they were collectively more concerned about getting reelected at all costs instead of focusing on good governance—which likely would’ve resulted in getting reelected.”

    The GOP is doomed because they can’t figure out how to get re-elected at any cost. Good governance went out the window a long time ago. Thus the paradox of modern US government … why vote for anyone who makes promises like a Democrat party member when they can vote for an actual Democrat and have a higher probability of achieving that for which they voted?

    The Republicans will probably never attract a significant portion of the black vote, therefore 95% of 14% of the electorate is off the table, because, for whatever reason, it is not cool to vote Republican. They will also probably never get half of the nearly 15% Hispanic vote because of the fine traditions of central and south America that revolve around statism. Maybe the Republicans will get most of the 5% Asian vote … on a good day. What this means is that Republicans must get at least 65% of the remaining white voters on a good day, and that is not easy even on a good day.

    The demographics only get worse as time goes on, and since the growing portions of the population are pre-disposed to statism, it is highly unlikely that the standard go-to conservative themes of smaller, more responsible constitutional government are going to add to the numbers of those who vote Republican.

    What this boils down to is that Republicans must capture a significant part of the white vote to win. They can only do this by inspiring them, or, more likely, by scaring them. We have already seen some of this at the convention. The conventional alternative is to win the hearts and minds of the non-white votes, but once again, why vote for a Democrat look-alike when you can have the real thing. Nah, the GOP is likely dead if they do not win this time around.

    The most likely outcome for the US in any case is a century or so of one-party rule, like that of the PRI in Mexico. Since we invited the electorate of Mexico to replace our own, so why should we be surprised?

    I disagree. Social Darwinist conservatism and clueless libertarianism have little to offer most working class white Americans. The core principle of conservatism is the adamant opposition to the use of government to ameliorate the economic conditions applying to the lower classes. They thought that they got Reagan Democrats, but what they really got was New Deal Democrats and their descendants. Now that it is crunch time, they have nothing to offer this group. Too late now, damn democraphics.

  38. If that’s so, how come so many of us live in white countries?

    This is a common trope I have heard on this website (and other similar ones) that non-whites are clamoring to live among whites in their societies. In reality, people are just doing what people have done forever; try to migrate to where the grass is greener. That’s what Europeans did in the colonial era. Had you been around then, would you have claimed that white people were clamoring to live among Native Americans, Australian Aborigines, Africans, Indians, etc?

    If China was set to become 50% Han Chinese by 2050, there would be egalitarians hung from every tree.

    You are just projecting your personal angst and proclivities on the Chinese (and no doubt, on other people too.) Your type a hundred years ago would have said the same thing about white people in America not tolerating changing demographics. Yet they have, and quite happily for the most part. You probably don’t believe that; perhaps you think (just like the Bernie Bros) that your views are shared by 99% of people?

    Most people around the world just aren’t that obsessed with race (historically, it’s white people from colonizing countries who have been the most race-conscious). People do care about culture though. But culture ain’t synonymous with race.

    Also he seems to have little understanding of Indian History. In 1945, over 30% of the population of what is now Pakistan was non-Muslim. After partition, there were mass communal killings, forcible expulsions and migration. Now Hindus, Sikhs and Christians constitute 3% of Pakistan’s population. Similar events occurred in Bengal.
    In nascent form we are seeing actions like these in parts of France. Sufficient numbers of Muslims arrive in a neighbourhood. They start intimidating the remaining natives. Unsupported by the State, the natives are pushed out or leave. Next stop Shariah Law etc.

  43. Yes Hindu nationalists were strong exponents of Aryanism and many still are.

    I don’t know where you get your information from, but if by Aryanism you are referring to something akin to white supremacy, you could not be more wrong. The Hindu nationalist (or Hindutva) movement from its origins has preached moral and political equality of castes (though they haven’t gone out of their way to destroy the institution.) Hindu nationalists are very bigoted towards Muslims (and to a lesser extent towards Christians) but they go out of their way to be inclusive of the lower (and formerly untouchable) castes.

    To put it succintly, upper castes in India have never tried to frame a grand theory around their superiority and lower castes’ inferiority, like Europeans have. There are no Indian equivalents to the theories of Gobineau, Madison Grant, Chamberlain, or Hitler. The texts (Vedas and others) provide a religious basis for caste privileges, and everyone unthinkingly practiced them until not too long ago. There’s nothing more to it.

    Hindu nationalists today, across the board, even reject the premise on which the Indo-European theories have been propounded. They either dismiss the similarities between Indian and European languages as coincidences, or propound the “Out-of-India” theory, which claims that Proto-Indo-European originated in India, and the Indo-European volkerwanderung started in India and ended in Europe.

  54. I am saying that a fair share of working class Americans, and a much larger share of the Crackers and their demographic cousins, generally support government that promises to “leave them alone.” This is complicated by the immigration question, but this is the main reason they were attracted to small government advocacy. This does not mean voters of this stripe want SS ripped out from underneath, just means they’re not comfortable with a Nanny State.

    These voters have not historically been opposed to outcrossing or alien assimilation. They are probably less racist, in terms of a tendency to make prior assumptions regarding value on the basis of race without additional information, than most if not all other significant classes of voters in our country. Throughout American history the Crackers and Cousins have been more willing to assimilate outsiders than probably any other class.

    They are concerned about unlimited immigration because they realize that their social and technological instincts and priorities will be a handicap, at best, in an America that is focused on burying its pioneer foundation and values deep in the ground with a lead overcoat. Of course, since these folks are the root of limited government, the internationalist free market advocates are left bereft of a fighting force.

    No, and for the last time, Hinduism is a set of religious concepts, not a racial manifesto. All the group-and-hierarchy theories that you are thinking of were propounded from whole cloth by Europeans during the 19th century. They thought they know what the Vedas meant more than than its practitioners did. Any texts that are so old and vaguely worded as the Hindu religious texts are can be reinterpreted and twisted in a way that fits the preconceptions of the theorizers (e.g., whites who have a need to believe in their own congenital superiority.) The Bible too can be reinterpreted any number of ways, psychoanalyzed, and its passages mangled, to paint a different picture of the land and inhabitants it emerged out of.

  62. I don’t think that there is a philosophical attraction for “small government” among us crackers. We are opposed to actions and policies that are inimical to our interests and those that favor other groups to our detriment, see affirmative action. There has been, and is, a class based political trope that government is “bad” for us and this gives way to a reflexive oppositional position. The elites had the generic opposition to government and were able to bring along the crackers because the main thrust of government action in the 60’s and 70’s was in many instances directed against the interests of crackers and in favor of other groups.

    I am in complete agreement here. I think we will readily and sincerely make exceptions to the stereotypes, but the stereotypes will hold overall. Didn’t Dylann Roof have a black friend that stayed with them in their trailer home at times?

    No, they are the root of the Republican base that has been used by the opportunistic globalist elites to win elections. The elites favor limited government. The jig was up in 2012 when 8 million stayed home and refrained from voting for that sewer pond scum Romney. This year they went full rogue. Unfortunately, the rats as identified by Kirkpatrick are sabotaging the election. Even without the rats the total opposition of the MSM would tough to overcome.

    ” Most Dalits continue to live in extreme poverty, without land or opportunities for better employment or education ” http://www.dalitchristian.com
    The Indian press, to its credit, routinely runs stories of untouchable men being lynched or burned alive, as well as gang rapes of untouchable women. The true level of atrocities is probably significantly higher as many are unreported.
    The Aryan invasion over 3,000 years ago ushered in the caste system. The original untouchables were probably in large part the descendants of the pre-Aryan inhabitants. An upper caste Hindu’s religion and caste ultimately derives this invasion. He cannot therefore be anything other than an Aryanist.

    Yet Goldwater carried FDR’s best states, not his weakest. Yes, it was the civil rights business that inspired them to, but civil rights (except perhaps for open housing’s effect on property values) is not economics.

  67. Blacks in America suffer from similar disadvantages as Dalits in India. Yet most people commenting on these forums go up in arms when anyone dares to say that blacks don’t have it very good in modern America. The reality is that both of our societies are working (slowly) towards improving the conditions of formerly unprivileged people. Please try to understand that.

    Please read Razib’s blog for a more nuanced take on ancient Indian history. “Facts” you take for granted (that the Aryans invaded India rather than migrate or merge into it, or that the caste system resulted from said invasion) are in the realms of hypotheses, and are by no means taken for granted by scholars. The evidence is very incomplete, and open to multiple divergent interpretations.

    (The word “Aryan” itself was taken well out of context by 19th century European supremacists. It gets some mention in the early part of the Vedas purely as a class marker. That word has never been prominent in Indian religious or secular discourse until the late 19th century when European interpretations of the Vedas brought it to the forefront.)

    Look, I despise the caste system, segregation, untouchability, etc., and am happy to see them (gradually) disappear, just as I would hope that modern Americans despise slavery and segregation and are happy in a world where people don’t suffer from a crippling disadvantage just because they were born into a particular family. But that doesn’t prevent me from recognizing that, historically, the beneficiary of these institutions (in bot countries) mainly went along with what was normal in their societies rather than willfully plotting to keep the “lower castes” down on a daily basis.

I have said it a few times on this site: if this is the view and your ideal then it is living in a fantasy.

    If you think there can be no United States with the integration of the new immigrants into our people-hood then then you are contributing to dis-union and fragmentation. I suggest instead that you work to help unify the country. Promote American ideals – liberty, freedom, opportunity. There are plenty of ‘non-whites’ who not only embrace them but now live them.

The people pushing the cuckservative meme are correct in that if the GOP does commit to equality then it will just be a whiter shade of Democrats.

    You should take notice that politicians are exploiting race and ethnic divisions (as always) and as to the Democrats they are all in on the idea that white people are the problem. The commenters here are not representative of generic white America. Generic white America has tried to make diversity work and if one takes a historical perspective nothing in recorded history comes close to what has been accomplished in the last 50 years. That said, many white Americans are noticing that the problem is being described as white people, not racism or discrimination or persecutions.

    I guess you’ll change your tune in five years, eh (see below)?

    The Emergency Quota Act, also known as the Emergency Immigration Act of 1921, the Immigration Restriction Act of 1921, the Per Centum Law, and the Johnson Quota Act (ch. 8, 42 Stat. 5 of May 19, 1921) restricted immigration into the United States. Although intended as temporary legislation, the Act “proved in the long run the most important turning-point in American immigration policy”[2] because it added two new features to American immigration law: numerical limits on immigration and the use of a quota system for establishing those limits. These limits came to be known as the National Origins Formula.

    The Emergency Quota Act restricted the number of immigrants admitted from any country annually to 3% of the number of residents from that same country living in the United States as of the U.S. Census of 1910.[3

    Based on that formula, the number of new immigrants admitted fell from 805,228 in 1920 to 309,556 in 1921-22.[4] The average annual inflow of immigrants prior to 1921 was 175,983 from Northern and Western Europe, and 685,531 from other countries, principally Southern and Eastern Europe. In 1921, there was a drastic reduction in immigration levels from other countries, principally Southern and Eastern Europe.

Why are the schools good here in my neighborhood? Lack of diversity. No other factors need be considered.

Some Liberals settle in such “good neighborhoods” they have high walls and security gates.

    And thus is my painful discussion with a youngster close to me that argues the benefits of diversity and inclusion and Hillary on the one hand while sensibly settling with her hubby into a lovely and wealthy neighborhood chock full of the qualities, amenities and “good schools” that come with a lack of diversity. Amazing still, the disassociation and distinctions these folks are able to make as regards your children while making certain they and their children are safe.

    I figure they know it’s the diversity, they just aren’t able to bring it to the top and spit it out. It would poke too many holes in their inner structure, that one concept, lack of diversity.

    The article makes a lot more sense if you read “Republican’s Republican” as meaning “one of the ‘Republicans’ that real patriots are going to have to steamroll if they want to take back the party and make it serve real American interests again.”

    There’s nothing wrong with intellectualism. Western nations need right-wing intellectualism to counter centuries of left-wing intellectualism. The problem is that the American right does not want to speak from the core of right wing thought, and so they’ve spent like 50 years standing on side issues like small government or whatever. Do they realize that the right should seek out bigotry, not run from it? If the left isn’t constantly calling you a racist sexist or whatever, you’re not doing it right.

    I doubt a job in sales would be for you. Just some free advice.

    The GOP, if it is to exist at all, must be reconfigured as a white identity party, one in which an Indian such as Roy probably has no place. His much more natural home will be with the coalition of the fringes that now constitute the Democratic Party. If he doesn’t like that either, he’s free to go back to India–they have lots of political parties.

    I could see the GOP as a coalition of ethnic identity parties, at least, one that wanted to be, one that presented itself as such. The left wants to squish all the tribes and identities, they’re just saving some of the more useful idiots for later.

    I see no reason for the right not to buy off minorities, the way the left does.

    This would be a huge disaster for the GOP. You can’t win as a racist, white party–there aren’t enough racists.

    Hoping they try, though.

    Boris is sort of right. Liu’s spergy or ill-intended advice is the wrong sort of “bigotry.” It’s one thing to say “I’m a Sith, join the dark side!” It’s quite another to do what everyone else does, and have everyone else call you a dark-sider because you happen to be the calf designated for slaughter at their BBQ.

    It’s not like Democrats use “we’re the hate-YT, destroy-America, gibsmedat party” as a campaign slogan.

    The fundamental problem the Fringe Party has is that they can’t compel white loyalty. Sure, they can become a majority, take over the gov’t, and rewrite the laws to be authoritarian. But they can’t make whites loyal enough not to evade taxes, cheat/game the system, set up parallel economies, etc. As the Fringe rises, they contaminate the legitimacy of whatever they rule. Eventually, that legitimacy will be low enough for a clean break.

    Untrue. Most minorities are equally or more racist than whites, we just have better moral cover from a victim standpoint. Almost all minority voting for the left is based on racial self-interests, and the Democrat party knows this.

    This is why the American right needs to foster nationalism in all communities, not just white ones. Together, we can relegate the white liberals to obsolescence.

    Much better than rubbing our hands together and shouting “embrace the bigotry.”

  96. What’s the alternative? A big government telling people where they can and can’t live? Sorry, but freedom is more important than somebody’s irrational preference for neighbors.

    Every rank-and-file leftist is an unimaginative conformist at heart. There are thousands of ways to skin the cat without ordering people about. They’re called incentives, carrots and sticks. The leftist rulers know this, but their rank-and-file seem to be too stupid to grasp the concept.

    Then there’s simple reality, another thing that leftists are too stupid to understand without a Parish Priest nearby to explain it to them with, I dunno, coloring books and cartoons. That being, landlords tell people all the time where they can and can’t live. One might say that’s at the very heart of the idea of being a landlord, but again, probably too complicated a concept for the leftist rank-and-file.

    Then there’s the idiotic Rube Goldberg “freedom is more important than somebody’s irrational preference for neighbors.” Only a leftist is stupid enough to think that doesn’t sound like a totalitarian’s flimsy rationalization.

    Assuming that people emigrating to white countries just to mooch off their welfare systems is extremely insulting to those immigrants. So back at ya!

    For most white people who emigrated to the colonies, grabbing huge tracts of land for themselves and (in some cases) pushing away or killing backward natives (e.g., Maxim gun vs bow and arrow) didn’t require much bravery, just a very unexceptional human greed. For landless peasants, and second or third sons in Europe, colonialism was a Godsend.

    Your praise for white colonists, and simultaneous contempt for today’s immigrants, is hypocritical. Immigrants to richer countries work exceptionally hard for relatively low returns (and the prospect of something good in the future), but nativists see nothing praiseworthy in that, labeling them job-stealers, scabs, wage-undercutters, etc.

Of course, the conquistadores and the beefeaters were too ignorant to know that their swords were unneeded once the hogs got loose. The Europeans could not have stopped the plagues they brought if the king himself had ordered them to. Yes the natives were easy to murder when they were running high fevers.

    You may say that you don’t. But if not, your fellow progs will say you’re not progressive enough.

  112. I was talking about Boris and his tokens, not you and yours.

    Would you live in a black-run neighborhood? In a Sharia-compliant district in Birmingham or Île-de-France? Who dominates, matters. Progs know this, too, but conceal it.

    Progressives’ “universal values” are just as parochial as those of their fellow whites whom they condemn. But they won’t ‘fess up to this.

    And one of those rare universal values, the purpose, shape and content of marriage, they just went to war with themselves.

  113. “Would you live in a black-run neighborhood?”

    Yes. In a black-run middle to upper class neighborhood, sure. Social class dominates. That matters most.

    “In a Sharia-compliant district in Birmingham or Île-de-France? Who dominates, matters. Progs know this, too, but conceal it.”

    There is a reason why there are ethnic enclaves. Praytell, how many Sharia-compliant districts are there in America?

  114. “Then why do you support BLM police murders…”

    BLM doesn’t murder cops.

    “gun prohibition”

    Guns have always been regulated in our country.

    “unhindered immigration”

    There have always been laws to restrict immigration.

    “and buggery as marital consummation?”

    And how does homosexual marriage personally impact your life?

    They certainly have. Do a search on “No free Negro or mulatto shall be suffered to…”

  116. White nationalism is as normal as Black, Latino, Jewish or Asian nationalism. The problem of the Republican Party was its inability to accept and integrate the white nationalists the same way they did with all other nationalists.

  117. The problem is, you have to win. Winning politics is about addition, not idealism. You need a coalition, and whites aren’t enough these days. And Mr. Liu, I see Asian Americans often vote with the Dems so you aren’t much help either.

    Nationalism, including all the people we’ve got whether we’re thrilled about that or not, should be an absolutely winning platform. Comparing nationalists to Hitler has worked amazingly well for 70 years since WW2. Are we willing to say “f that” and vote our interests?

  118. I think the Dallas cop shooter wrote something pro-BLM. Of course BLM disavows it and probably says he was just a nut. But BLM does get involved in a lot of things that turn violent and confrontational with cops — that put cops in danger as well as other people.

    I don’t think BLM gets off so easy from being dangerous to cops.

  119. Name-calling doesn’t bother me. But you didn’t read my comment carefully. I was talking about the integration/assimilation of the immigrants who are already here. So slowing immigration is indeed necessary but that does not fully address the problem of creating a united country where not everybody is white. And I completely disagree that the ability to assimilate is long-gone. Studies show assimilation is indeed happening, e.g. Alba and Nee Remaking the American Mainstream, essays in Jacoby’s Reinventing the Melting Pot, and monographs by the scholars who published there. White racialists don’t want this assimilation because it means eventual intermarriage. Black racialists don’t want it for the same reason. Radical leftists don’t want it because it promotes social cohesion and in their view solidification of the economic status quo. The ones who will be left out in the end will be those “whites” and “blacks” who want to stay separate. They will be the minorities in a hundred years. The rest will be Americans. That is my prediction.
