From Associated Press:

Record number of African migrants coming to Mexican border
By ANDREW SELSKY and PATRICK WHITTLE
2 hours ago

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Undaunted by a dangerous journey over thousands of miles, people fleeing economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries are coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in unprecedented numbers, surprising Border Patrol agents more accustomed to Spanish-speaking migrants.

“Economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries,” a.k.a., just another Tuesday in African countries.

Officials in Texas and even Maine are scrambling to absorb the sharp increase in African migrants. They are coming to America after flying across the Atlantic Ocean to South America and then embarking on an often harrowing overland journey.

In one recent week, agents in the Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector stopped more than 500 African migrants found walking in separate groups along the arid land after splashing across the Rio Grande, children in tow. …

Cameroonians generally fly to Ecuador because no visa is required and take about four months to reach Tijuana. They walk for days in Panama through dense jungle, where they are often robbed and held in government-run camps. They come from Cameroon’s English-speaking south with horrifying stories of rape, murder and torture committed since late 2016 by soldiers of the country’s French-speaking majority, which holds power.

Angl0phone Liberation Now! Down with Francophone Tyranny!

You probably haven’t been keeping up with Cameroon’s English vs. French troubles, but they are Your Problem Now.

… Many were bused to Portland, Maine, about as far as one can get from the Mexican border and still be in the continental United States. Word has spread among migrants that the city of 67,000 is a welcoming place. Somali refugees were resettled in Portland in the 1990s.

… Portland officials tweeted Thursday that rumors some of the migrants are carrying the Ebola virus “are patently false,” and said that as asylum seekers, they are in the United States legally.

On Thursday afternoon, families in the Expo chatted in French and Portuguese as children kicked a soccer ball near rows of cots. One of the men, 26-year-old Prince Pombo, described himself as a pro-democracy activist and said he had fled his native country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, because of political oppression. He went to neighboring Angola, then flew to Brazil. There, he met a local woman and they had a baby they named Heaven.

Nickname: “Meal Ticket.”

Now 16-months old, she giggled as she played with her mother in the Expo. Pombo said his journey from Congo to America took three years. …

Mbi Deric Ambi, from the English-speaking part of Cameroon, is among them. … “We don’t have jobs in the English part, the educational system is poor, they are looking at us as dogs…”

The United States of America is of course the closest English-speaking country to Cameroon.

By the way, the United Nation’s 2019 World Population Projections will be released on Monday. It will be interesting to see how many media outlets draw any connection between the UN’s forecast of African population growth and what is happening at the border.

    (updated July 16, 2027) PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Undaunted by a dangerous journey over thousands of miles, people fleeing economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries are coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in unprecedented numbers, surprising Border Patrol agents more accustomed to Arabic-speaking migrants.

    Officials in Texas and even Maine are scrambling to absorb the sharp increase in African migrants. They are coming to America after flying across the Atlantic Ocean to South America and then embarking on an often harrowing overland journey.

    In one recent week, agents in the Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector stopped more than 500,000 African migrants found walking in separate groups along the arid land after splashing across the Rio Grande, children in tow.

    That is more than double the total of 249,111 African migrants who were detained by the Border Patrol along the entire 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) U.S.-Mexico border in the 2026 fiscal year…

    ….Portland officials tweeted Thursday that reports by the CDC that some of the migrants are carrying the Ebola virus “are patently mean-spirited,” and said that as asylum seekers, they are in the United States legally.

    Now you’ve got Trump trying to start a war with Iran.

    If Israel’s problems are our problem, then why can’t we say the same for Cameroon? Why not every country in existence?

    The whole world’s problems should be our problem.

    We should also merge all countries together and have one global open border, with only Israel permitted a border.

    Yes, but the white man’s spirit is severely diminished.

    Go to any red state event: degenerate fat people, alcoholics, depressed people, people that just generally give off a vibe of being an opioid/drug addict, old people. That’s the founding stock right there.

    The other, more “successful” white people are useful idiots and actively plotting against their own kind! They have degenerate sexual relationships, abortions, and childless lifestyles.

    No doubt that it was the intelligent, successful, haughty, now-blue state type people that spearheaded the ideology behind the revolution. Their mindsets have now been warped to hate themselves, but it is the same people. White liberal elites = White nationalist elites of the past. Same WASPs.

    Without the direction and support of the white elites, the white proles do not know what to do. Hence the degeneracy found in red states. Whites need good elites to lead them. Without it the white race will fall, unfortunately.

    Well, you see. Since France (WHITE people) colonized Cameroon, therefore it is America’s responsibility (also WHITE people) to take care of them.

    Yes, whitey. You broke the world, you own it. Plus France and America were on the same side during the revolution.

    As a serious aside, why do Hispanics, blacks, Indians – basically every person in America right now – not seem to care about this invasion? Like yeah, it’s “fucking over” whitey, but it’s fucking them over too. Ebola will not discriminate and only go after the evil whitey. Asians and other taxpayers will equally have to support these leeches. It seems short sighted to me to destroy the country to get at whites. Especially Asians should (theoretically) get it. You live here too, even if you still think America is an evil white country.

    I get how blacks and to an extent Hispanics feel this way, but even then. Half of Hispanics and most Asians are certainly smart enough to figure that out – I guess the burning hatred of whites is stronger than their desire for a decent country. Anybody else have ideas?

  13. “The United States of America is of course the closest English-speaking country to Cameroon”.

    “Don’t feed the animals.”

  15. this is why i think the old “Whites will be a minority in 2042” line is simply wrong.

    once the next democrat president comes into office, that border opens up immediately. 2 million, 3 million third worlders come in per year.

    europeans will be a minority in the US by 2030.

    the projections are assuming the rate of the change will remain constant. no it won’t. the democrats will speed it way up. why wouldn’t they? once you win a war, you take the spoils. they didn’t become president and take over the country so that old line americans can linger around for a few more election cycles, making things a little annoying for the democrats. just bury them immediately under 30 million third worlders so no elections are even close anymore.

    this “Minority America 2042” line is not much different than the “10 million illegal aliens” line they keep repeating. there’s more than 10 million illegals, and europeans will be a minority long before 2042.

  20. This story purports to come from Associated Press, but I posted extracts from another version of the same story by another journalist a couple days ago. Both reports reference this fellow Prince Polombo who acquired his daugher Heaven in Brazil, and I asked, among other questions, why, if he is married to a Brazilian woman, he did not seek residency in Brazil.

    https://www.pressherald.com/2019/06/12/asylum-seekers-describe-journeys-from-africa-to-portland/

    Prince Polombo is described as a “democracy activist” who was forced to leave the Congo. Good luck, fella, I think you will find that the US, like Congo (formerly also Zaire) is resource rich, but dominated by large corporations who do not share their wealth with the population or their employees. Where will he go if he is forced to leave the US? What are employment prospects for democracy activists called Prince like these days?

    If you have the right to live in a second “safe” country, you are automatically rejected from asylum in the USA.

    It doesn’t matter for Prince though, because unless he’s really stupid he won’t admit he has a wife and child who are Brazilian citizens and can live there.

    And that’s if he actually shows up to his asylum hearing. About 97% of the current wave of fake asylum illegal invaders don’t show up.

    The Empire continues abolishing itself at breakneck speed, and just in time for China’s rise, too. Divine providence?

    I expect the number of African immigrants to swell over the next 50 years to perhaps millions per year; several American politicians such as Lindsey Graham are already on record stating they want to triple legal immigration, so it’s definitely possible if the future one-party government assists in the effort. Say goodbye to functioning democratic government when that happens and hello to economic and political dysfunction; one party government and endless racial redistribution of wealth schemes. Wave bye to religious liberties and quaint notions like freedom of speech and of association. American flag? Burn it – racist. Intellectual freedom – gone, it’s dangerous. Diversity of entertainment? Nope. Nothing but wall-to-wall political correctness. Privacy? Already gone. The deepstate will monitor all communications to ferret out heretics; they’ll hire a massive army of social media warriors to own your hateful opinion with “facts and logic” or doxx you and get you fired if that doesn’t work. Peace and quiet? It’ll be hard to get that when you can’t turn on the television without some “Get Becky” story. 60 or 70 years from now and your descendants may have their homes stolen from them under some kind of land appropriation/racial grievance scheme a la what they are doing in South Africa and what they once did in Zimbabwe, and you won’t be able to stop them because the DNC/ANC will be the sole political party that is viable on the national level thanks to demographics. They are already having a racial reparations hearing in congress.

    In the future, the US will be a beaten, broken society with zero social trust, an authoritarian government that uses force to keep itself together, relatively poor despite the promised AI and manufacturing technologies*, and racked with various racial issues that dominate every aspect of life making every waking moment miserable.

    *I expect the Chinese to take away many of those technologies from the US in the coming decade. Along with a coming AI winter and difficulties erecting a next gen economy while being hamstrung by incompetent grievance mongers like Kamala Harris and AOC, the US will probably end up something other than the utopia futurists imagine it will: a poor, miserable, and broken country with no social trust but even better iPhones and other technological distractions for the masses (all made by the Chinese).

    This is objectively incorrect. These people were done “fleeing Africa” the day they arrived in South America.

    By the time they reached the U.S. border they were “fleeing Mexico.”

    Likewise, the assertion that they walked through the Amazon jungle, swam the Panama Canal, and hiked across the Sonoran Desert on foot is beyond preposterous and patently false.

    As another commenter wrote recently, the minimum cost of moving all these people across the Atlantic and through Central America is hundreds of thousands of dollars, a literal king’s ransom in Cameroon or Congo. So either their “economic hardship” is not really so hard, or else some third party is footing the bill. Now who could that be?

    Middlebury Evacuated its School in Cameroon. Was it the Right Decision?
    https://middleburycampus.com/45415/arts-academics/cameroon-school-evacuated-right-decision/

    One afternoon last October, the four students studying abroad in Middlebury’s school in Yaoundé, Cameroon, received a cryptic message from the program’s director, asking them to meet for dinner at the home of one of their host families.

    …. Cameroon’s contentious presidential elections, which had taken place nine days earlier on Oct. 7, and whose results were slated to be announced within the next week.

    …. the notion that the election results could unleash a wave of political violence was unthinkable.

    …. Middlebury had decided to relocate the four students to Morocco, fearing that electoral violence could sweep Cameroon and shutter its airports. The group would be put on flights to Rabat, Morocco just over a day later, with no guarantee that they would be able to return to Cameroon to finish their semester.

    “It was traumatic,” Ray said.

    The four students, along with Ngabeu, spent a pleasant week in Morocco before returning to Cameroon, which had remained almost entirely peaceful after the election results were announced.

    Middlebury is so woke that its French study abroad program is in Cameroon, not France. If you know French programs, you know that they avoid sending students to Montreal because of their bumpkinish accent. But you cannot say things like that about the speeeh of black bodies.

    …. the incident in Cameroon was the latest in a succession of cases in which the continent has received unequal treatment at Middlebury. She pointed to an effort by faculty several years ago to convince the college to offer Swahili at its summer language schools…. Korean had been picked instead.

    Still, many involved with African Studies at Middlebury tell anecdotes about biases and unfounded fears … instances in which parents of students interested in the program asked her how their children would drink water or receive medical care in Cameroon, presuming the country did not have hospitals.

    …. a French professor recently tried to dissuade her from going and urged her to study in France instead.

    “When I asked him why, he discussed African accents, meaning it would be really hard for me to understand an African accent and that when I came back from Cameroon, I would have an African accent,” said the student, who was granted anonymity so she could speak freely about the exchange. “He implied that that wouldn’t be good for my future career prospects,” she recalled, adding that the professor “made a face” as he discussed African French.

    These people were done “fleeing Africa” the day they arrived in South America.

    That’s why you can never sign off on legislation with people who aim to replace you. Because they will never honor the law. They only want to open the door to your country and allow as many in as possible.

    For example, as part of the 1986 amnesty the other side promised there would never be such an amnesty again, and that border enforcement would become a priority. How did that work out? DACA is effectively an amnesty, and border enforcement is a joke. But the other side got their original amnesty up front 33 years ago and so far has given up nada.

    The refugee law was supposed to give refuge in the first safe country a refugee came to. But apparently “first country” is just a code word for USA. They keep bending the rules because they know, just like possession is 9/10ths of the law, residency in the USA pretty much gives a guy a 90% shot at remaining. So the goal is to get them on US soil where they know the odds are very good the refugee will never leave.

    Ultimately this goes back to the 1965 Immigration Act. No that act did not cause the refugee scam. But that act effectively said that the USA was no longer a White nation. It was akin to Australia abandoning the White Australia policy. And once the USA admitted it was no longer a White nation, it lost the will to defend itself against these insane laws that are ripe for abuse.

    A total of 170 asylum seekers arrived [in Portland, Maine] in recent days. Hundreds more are expected.

    Portland, Maine, metropolitan area, residents by race

    – 2000 census: 468,500 Whites / 5,500 Asians / 3,900 Blacks / 10,000 Others
    – 2010 census: 481,000 Whites / 8,200 Asians / 8,000 Blacks / 16,500 Others
    – 2020 census: ? [if Blacks double in number again, on track for 16,000+]

    I expect in 1990 (pre-refugees), there were around than half the number of Blacks, mainly a few randoms of long-U.S. ancestry, and that all the Black net gain since then has been from African refugees.

    If this current little wave nets the Portland, Maine, region just 500 new Subsaharans, that’s only a modest little bump from where they’d be expected to be (16,000? –> 16,500 by 2020 Q2 census time).

    The Portland, Maine, metropolitan area — I presume ~0% Black as of the 1980s (rounding down) — is now 3% Black, mainly foreign-origin (presumably/unfortunately, many Muslims among them). Acc. to someone’s Wiki edits, 4.4% of births in Maine statewide in 2017 were to Black mothers, presumably the big majority being refugees.

    This pattern is remarkably similar to Black/Muslim colonization of parts of Northern Europe, down to the timeframe (from ~zero as recently as the 1980s, to now on the precipice of being a numerically-serious problem-minority).

    In the unlikely event Prince shows up to his asylum hearing years from now, what are the chances the government googles him looking to see if he lied on his application?

    I am not fully familiar with the asylum process, and I do not know if USCIS uses Internet databases for background checks, but I would imagine that he would have to produce a birth certificate for his daughter if she is part of the process as part of the paperwork. That is the way it works with a standard citizenship application for, for example, the wife of a US citizen. The birth certificate would show the date and place of birth and have the names of the parents.

    Now whether he is legally married to the mother, I do not know, but she is apparently also seeking asylum with him and appears to have a Brazilian, or at least Portuguese, name. Of course she might not be from Brazil, she could be from Angola, but the daughter is presumed to be a citizen of Brazil.

    Presumably there are also some kind of paperwork records of his stay in Brazil.

    If you do NOT show up for an asylum hearing, then you basically become a fugitive and your options are very limited, for example you might not be able to renew a driver’s license.

    This link suggests that as many as 89% of asylum applicants do attend their hearings, which seems to conflict with the claim that 97% do not.

    Government figures made available through the Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) asylum decision tracking tool show near 100 percent appearance rates for asylum seekers released from immigration detention. Out of 10,427 decisions in fiscal year 2018 for released asylum seekers, only 160 received removal orders because they missed a court hearing—resulting in a 98.5 percent court hearing compliance rate.

    Oh well cool. So basically they have to travel through one, two, three, eight countries before reaching the United States. Eight countries in which they could claim asylum. I guess if these countries are all too oppressive for these poor Africans to claim asylum in we need to begin the economic sanctions and start dropping bombs on their leaders, starting with Ecuador.

    It used to be in the good old days that political leaders got their thrills by invading other countries. Now we have a party 100% of whose leadership is in favor of invading the United States. Me, I’d just like to go back to the time when our leaders preferred not to invade or be invaded. But we live in un-effing-believable times where an entire major political party has embraced the politics of the self-righteously insane.

    True. And that’s not even taking into account a reversal of the market boom which followed Trump’s election. The election of a candidate whose party is moving ever farther to the left would do no good to the stock market.

    The downside is that even two years is enough time to do a lot of damage, unless Republicans manage to maintain control of the Senate, which would probably be unlikely. That would include the passage of an amnesty giving citizenship to easily well over 15 million+ illegals – guaranteed.

    For example, as part of the 1986 amnesty the other side promised there would never be such an amnesty again, and that border enforcement would become a priority. How did that work out? DACA is effectively an amnesty, and border enforcement is a joke. But the other side got their original amnesty up front 33 years ago and so far has given up nada.

    None of these were “amnesties”. They were outright gifts. To lawbreakers.

    The only policy that merits the term amnesty is deportation without further punishment.

    A Dem Congress will pass a bill to add PR as a state. 2 new senators, and 7 in the House. Assuming they don’t permanently expand the house, those 7 seats will be bled out of Rust belt states.

Helping refugees as close as possible to their source nations is over 10X more cost effective than bringing them to the developed world. So if there really are more genuine refugees now than at any time in human history, then helping as many as possible necessitates keeping them as close to possible their points of origin.

Without a doubt, he’d prefer to be writing about belles lettres and varieties of liquor. Writing about civic life irritates him, though he has views on such questions.

    He’s always had a too-cool-for-school attitude toward conventional starboard politics. Doesn’t matter who it is – George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Donald Trump – basically the same song.

    It’s a reasonable guess that he’s writing for NR because they’ll pay him a salary. He’s had some lean years. His schooling was quite impractical (Bard College) and I’m not sure he finished his degree (though he claims to have paid off his student loans). Some of his well-wishers suggested to him a dozen years ago that he learn a practical trade (say breweries or distilleries) and write on the side.

    His current project is mining his family life for material.

    Don’t be so sure. The 2018 mid-terms taught the Dems something very important: they can steal elections with impunity. Republicans will barely mumble about it, and the media will provide protective cover.

    My feeling is that Hillary lost largely from over-confidence. They just didn’t roll out the vote fraud machine big enough in Milwaukee, Detroit, in Ohio, in Pennsylvania. All of those states were close enough that a determined fraud effort could have put Hillary over the top. In addition, by 2020 several million Trump voters will have died of old age and suicide, and several million newly minted Dem voter-citizens will be empowered legally to vote. Countless millions more of illegal potential voters will have also arrived.

    Anyway, even if the Republicans keep a slim Senate majority, there are plenty enough cucks in the Senate to happily go along with President Harris or whatever grifting incompetent the Democrats elect.

African and Indian mothers took his free food, vitamins and vaccines and said no thanks to the contraceptives, so instead of losing half of their 14 babies per woman to famine and disease, they all survived to adulthood. All the babies he and Melinda saved since the 90’s are now in their 20s and 30s needing jobs and BillG has no answer, he can’t create enough jobs for them in Africa and India with their low IQ, so his answer is to help them invade Europe and the US under false pretenses.

    With the Indians he was able to swindle the country into believing they are “best and brightest” and therefore deserving of millions of H1b visas and green cards, but with the Africans it was a tougher sell. Fortunately the west still have our retarded asylum laws so Africa’s surplus population too can get into the US and Europe en masse, like the Indians.

    For about the last 20 years the overseas French language teachers and the government and organizations that arrange it like the Alliance Francaise have really been focusing on the French speaking countries of Africa and the Caribbean.

    For several centuries French was the lingua Franca of Europe and many Americans and S Americans learned it too.

    Now it’s English as the global language and French is just for France and part of Quebec. Those are the only White French speaking countries.

    The language teaching machine doesn’t want to dwindle away. So now there’s a big big push to include the former Caribbean and African colonies. The language classes and books used to emphasize French culture and Camus, Moliere Rostand Colette George Sand Balzac Zola that WW2 pilot Antoine Expuery? French fiction plays short stories history .

    Now the books and lessons include African and Caribbean “ culture” history and “ literature”
    The Alliance Francaise and the rest are really going all out to promote French speaking Africans. Instead of a French mother whipping up beef stew and cream puffs they have a Senegalese mother squatting over the bush meat pot.

    My friend’s group flashed their black diplomatic passports and the police hustled them to safety. (My friend worked in the diplomatic corps at the time in another country and is a retired B-52 Commander.)

    I knew a Nigerian visitor to the US some years ago. He was a fairly ordinary guy. He was married with a new child, but his family was not with him on his visit to the US. At a certain point in his visit, circumstances occurred where he could choose stay in the US illegally, but he would have to abandon his wife and child forever.

    So he abandoned his wife and child forever. Didn’t even hesitate, as far as I could tell. Had he been abandoning them to murderous loan sharks, I’m not sure his decision would have been different. As I say, he wasn’t an obvious sociopath, or really in any obvious way out of the ordinary, this was just a reasonable decision from his point of view.

    Who was going to ‘force them to leave’ and why? Britain and France were the world’s principal powers in 1918. We’d assembled a large military for a discrete purpose, then dismantled it over a two year period. We had no history of a large standing army up to that point, no history in Africa at all, and no particular reason to attempt coercive measures contra Britain and France over their portfolio of African dependencies. Wilson promoted the notion of an international organization. He didn’t create the League of Nations; the United States never joined it. There were diplomatic committees providing notional supervision of the ‘mandates’, but otherwise they weren’t much different than ordinary dependencies. The United Nations General Assembly tried to strip South Africa of their ‘mandate’ over South-West Africa in 1966 and were told to go hang by the South African government. South Africa wasn’t a great power, but they did have guns and boots on the ground and there wasn’t anyone else who care to enforce anything. Nor would there have been in 1922.

    It’s interesting how “a country without army”, such as United States in 1918, managed to swell tens of times over the size of at the Declaration of Independence. How did it manage to swallow Florida, California, Hawaii, and Porto Rico? How did it occupy Philippines and Cuba on two opposing sides of the Earth? How did it invent the country of Panama? Who brought over a century of disaster in Haiti? Who bombed Shanghai, Ganghwa, and Shimonoseki – again at the antipodes? During the 19th century, who attacked Algiers, Mykonos, Sumatra, Greytown, Formosa, Samoa? Was it Putin? Xijinping?

    This is a catalog of invasions longer than Hitler’s and Napoleon’s. Almost any part of the globe, in any region that ACTUALLY lacked standing armies (native or imperial), was attacked by United States, during the 19th century.

    From Wiki: “At the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, a commission was appointed to agree on a covenant. Members included Woodrow Wilson (as chair), Colonel House (representing the U.S.), Robert Cecil and Jan Smuts (British Empire), Léon Bourgeois and Ferdinand Larnaude (France), Prime Minister Vittorio Orlando and Vittorio Scialoja (Italy), Foreign Minister Makino Nobuaki and Chinda Sutemi (Japan), Paul Hymans (Belgium), Epitácio Pessoa (Brazil), Wellington Koo (China), Jayme Batalha Reis (Portugal), and Milenko Radomar Vesnitch (Serbia). Further representatives of Czechoslovakia, Greece, Poland and Romania were later added. The group considered a preliminary draft co-written by Hurst and President Wilson’s adviser David Hunter Miller. During the first four months of 1919 the group met on ten separate occasions, attempting to negotiate the exact terms of the foundational Covenant agreement for the future League.” Again, the charter that sets the protectorates up is Wilson’s work. It i based on the Fourteen Points, which he and House’s committee wrote.

    Watch how Americans humiliate the yellow pest: “Japan requested that a clause upholding the principle of racial equality should be inserted, parallel to the existing religious equality clause. This was deeply opposed, particularly by American political sentiment, while Wilson himself simply ignored the question.” (both quotes from Wikipedia).

    Of course, since France and Britain were in tatters, while Americans barely registered a messed-up summer holiday. Number of dead soldiers: 1.8M British, 1.4M French, 1.1M German, 650K Austrians, 300K Romanians, 275K Serbs, 116K Americans. As usual, Americans came when the opposition was weak, and went for the spoils.

    More specifically, Americans did not want land at that time. They needed more sea power. In 1922, through the Washington Naval Treaty, they dictated to the “victorious powers” how large could their warships could be. British fleet was allowed to remain at most equal to the American fleet. The French fleet was to remain at half the tonnage of America. How does it sound like a French victory? Was anyone surprised when, later on, America showed up in Indochina and Lebanon? How were the French to protest?

    Wilson wrote that idealistic crap, which set up the next war. He tricked the other powers into signing it, and then withdrew. “Although Wilson had secured his proposal for a League of Nations in the final draft of the Treaty of Versailles, the U.S. Senate refused to consent to the ratification of the Treaty” But this is an old trick. Trump’s people negotiate a treaty to replace NAFTA; one month later, Trump tweets that he will impose tariffs on Mexico. A Yankee’s word is not worth the paper it is written on. No wonder you hope to twist history from showing US as the largest naval power in 1922 to a “dindu” with no role in the protectorate system. Classic Yankee lies.

    It doesn’t matter how much extraneous verbiage you use, the U.S. Government still had nothing to do with the conquest and administration of Kamerun.

    If you expect better from an Ecuadorian fisherman, you must not know any. While it’s true no politician can think past his next election, most mestizosi.e., most Ecuadorians – simply cannot think (full stop).

    From a dissertation by Scot Bruce, submitted at University of Nebraska in 2003:
    “Noted historian George Louis Beer served as House’s colonial expert, helping him [Wilson] form the American position on postwar decolonization in Africa and the Middle East. A scholar known for his expertise in the field of British colonialism, Beer was an easy choice for House in his effort to mold an extensive report on the social, political, and economic realities present within the African colonies. Among his most influential early ideas, Beer proposed to House the inclusion of provisions for indigenous rights and economic free trade, favoring trusteeship in the colonies rather than the traditional colonial oversight proposed by Great Britain and France. In a report for The Inquiry written in December 1917, Beer clarified this approach, first using the term “mandate” to describe The Inquiry’s colonial proposals.”
    “In German East Africa, Beer advocated several initial resolutions, including one for less stringent colonial immigration laws allowing non-Europeans greater access to the territories. He also criticized the prewar boundaries in West Africa. Here Beer recognized France’s political claim to the portion of Cameroon seized by Germany in 1911. Nonetheless, for the rest of Cameroon, he proposed trusteeship, whereby the former colonies would be overseen by a multinational body until they were ready for independence. ”
    “Beer included a reserve option, saying that if his proposal was deemed unfeasible, the only solution might be to ”assign part of the Cameroons to British Nigeria and part to French Equatorial Africa.””
    “Avoiding further delay while seeking an agreement in Paris, Lloyd George proposed to postpone a final settlement for Cameroon and Togo until later when the French and British would make a joint recommendation to the League of Nations regarding the future of these former German colonies. Wilson did not object to this compromise, which would give the League a supervisory role in this eventual colonial settlement.”
    I don’t think Serbs or Romanians were in the room when Clemenceau, Lloyd George, and Wilson were redrawing the Cameroons. By the number of dead, they were as deserving as the Americans, but somehow couldn’t get a seat at that table. Surprisingly, Wilson, from a poor country that lacked standing armies, got a seat, and was asked to approve partition of Cameroon.
    He only approved it, he dindu nuthin.

    Again, none of this matters.

  183. At this point, should we elect a President who passes blatantly anti-White legislation? Say, no forgiveness of student loan debt except for non-whites? More affirmative action for non-white immigrants? All non-whites get only 6 months in jail while white citizens get 20 years hard labor for the same crime?

    What will it take to wake the Whites up? Do we have to get to the point where we have White Death Squads hunting immigrants and open-borders traitors?
    Generally speaking, in my view, the “worse is better” philosophy doesn’t work. Remember the John:*** commenter on Amren? Does “worse is better” ever work?

    I can barely believe I’m writing this. But this is where we are going.
    I weep for what used to be my country.

    Indeed, you are on the side that is losing the public, so perhaps you should have made your point clear. Whether I write more, or stop here, it won’t change the fact that your taxes are up for grabs by the reparations crowd.

    Indeed, I was partly making a joke at the expense of politicians.

    But we also depend on instincts to get us through, and I expect mestizos to have some self preservation instincts, such as limiting involvement with negros and not inflicting too much damage on the Goose of the North that lays golden eggs, of which a few roll south.

    But I suppose ours is an age where instincts are overridden by the search for cash and prizes.

    Popular sentiment is not always the best metric.

    it won’t change the fact that your taxes are up for grabs by the reparations crowd.

    But it is from base greed and avarice; not really from a historical wrong.
