Peter Brimelow and Edwin S. Rubenstein pointed out in National Review in 1997:

Electing a New People

By Peter Brimelow & Edwin S. Rubenstein

DEMOGRAPHY is destiny in American politics. This point was made brilliantly almost exactly thirty years ago, by Kevin Phillips in The Emerging Republican Majority (1968). In the shadow of the Democrats’ long-dominant “Roosevelt coalition,” and amid the wreckage and recrimination of the disastrous Goldwater defeat, Phillips boldly predicted a generation of Republican victories based on the persistent but dynamic pattern of ethnic politics. He has been triumphantly vindicated.

But the Republican hour is rapidly drawing to a close. Not because the “Phillips Coalition” of the West and the South, of the middle class and urban blue-collar voters, is breaking up in the traditional manner. Instead, it is being drowned—as a direct result of the 1965 Immigration Act, which ironically became effective in the year Phillips’s book was published. Nine-tenths of the immigrant influx is from groups with significant—sometimes overwhelming—Democratic propensities. After thirty years, their numbers are reaching critical mass. And there is no end in sight.

From the New York Times in 2019:

How Voters Turned Virginia From Deep Red to Solid Blue

A new kind of suburbanization is sweeping through politics, from Richmond to Atlanta, Houston, Denver and elsewhere, and Democrats are starting to breach Republicans’ firewalls in elections.

By Sabrina Tavernise and Robert Gebeloff
Nov. 9, 2019

SOUTH RIDING, Va. — Not long ago, this rolling green stretch of Northern Virginia was farmland. Most people who could vote had grown up here. And when they did, they usually chose Republicans.

The fields of Loudoun County are disappearing. In their place is row upon row of cookie-cutter townhouses, clipped lawns and cul-de-sacs — a suburban landscape for as far as the eye can see. Unlike three decades ago, the residents are often from other places, like India and Korea. And when they vote, it is often for Democrats.

… Mr. Katkuri’s vote — the first of his life — helped flip a longtime Republican State Senate district and deliver the Virginia statehouse to the Democratic Party for the first time in a generation. It was a stunning political realignment for a southern state, and prompted days of prognosticating about President Trump’s own standing with suburban voters nationally in 2020. But while political leaders come and go, the deeper, more lasting force at work is demographics.

Once the heart of the confederacy, Virginia is now the land of Indian grocery stores, Korean churches and Diwali festivals. The state population has boomed — up by 38 percent since 1990, with the biggest growth in densely settled suburban areas like South Riding. One in 10 people eligible to vote in the state were born outside the United States, up from one in 28 in 1990. It is also significantly less white. In 1990, the census tracts that make up Mr. Katkuri’s Senate district were home to about 35,000 people — 91 percent of them white. Today, its population of 225,000 is just 64 percent white. …

It’s not just Virginia. From Atlanta to Houston, this pattern is repeating itself — a new kind of suburbanization that is sweeping through politics. The densely populated inner ring suburbs are turning blue, while the mostly white exurban outer ring is redder than ever. Elections are won and lost along that suburban line, and in some places — like Atlanta, Denver, and Riverside County, Calif. — Democrats have begun to breach Republicans’ firewalls. …

But in other cities — like Charlotte, Indianapolis, St. Louis — the Republican advantage in the outer-ring areas countered the gains that Democrats made in more densely populated neighborhoods.

Democrats took control of the House and elevated Nancy Pelosi to speaker in 2018 because of victories in these fast-changing parts of America, and both parties are preparing for battle over these voters in 2020. …

The influx of immigrants and their U.S.-born children, the spread of high-density suburbia and the growth of higher education all tilt the field toward the Democrats. …

In the 13th Senate district, where Mr. Katkuri lives, one in five residents are immigrants. The district had been Republican for longer than Mr. Katkuri had been in the United States. He came in 2006 at the age of 25 as a tech worker, and lived for a while in New Jersey. But it was congested and expensive, and crime was high. After visiting a friend in Virginia, he moved.

“You drive from the northeast and you fall in love,” he said of Virginia. The state felt more like what he had imagined America would be. “I like the wide roads and green trees. In India, we didn’t have this.”

He added, smiling: “It’s like a therapy.”

Today he works as an I.T. specialist for a company that contracts with the federal government, a job that has landed him in the upper middle class of American society. He drove to the Indian grocery in his silver Tesla. He has a house in the tidy suburb of Arcola a few miles away.

As Virginia’s population has grown it has also gotten wealthier. Households earning at least $150,000 have grown at three times the rate of the population over all.

Mr. Katkuri always thought he would be a Republican in America.

“Taxes, family values, these things are closer to our hearts,” he said. He likes Mitt Romney.

But when he got his citizenship in March and started talking with his friends about whom to vote for in the first election of his life, he realized it had to be Democrats. Mr. Trump helped him decide.

“The way he speaks, you get the feeling that you are separate,” Mr. Katkuri said. “This is not what we signed up for in America.”

It’s almost as if he still might have a bunch of cousins back home in India.

Around the advent of the modern immigration system, in 1965, foreign-born people made up only about five percent of the American population. Now they are nearly 14 percent, almost as high as the last peak in the early 20th century. The concentrations used to be in larger gateway cities, but immigrants have spread out considerably since then.

… Lakshmi Sridaran, who heads South Asian Americans Leading Together, said that about a third of South Asians in the United States now live in the South. The South Asian population in the South nearly tripled from 2000 to 2017, to 1.4 million.

Of the 10 metro areas that had the largest South Asian growth, five are in the South, said Ms. Sridaran, who was born in Atlanta, after her father took a teaching job at Morehouse School of Medicine in the early 1980s.

  1. But when he got his citizenship in March and started talking with his friends about whom to vote for in the first election of his life, he realized it had to be Democrats. Mr. Trump helped him decide.

    Yet, somehow, I have the feeling that had he been able to vote in 1996, Dole would have helped him decide; in 2000 and 2004, Bush would have helped him decide; in 2008, McCain would have helped him decide; and in 2012, Romney would have helped him decide. It’s not like a lot of non-whites were favorably inclined toward the GOP until Trump came along, though the New York Times would like to imply that.

    Russia did spend about $250,000 on ads to influence the 2016 election. Some of that was to help Bernie over Hillary, which nobody cares much about.

    That doesn’t include the very labor intensive process of making thousands of slightly different ads to test which ones work best. Fold that in, and maybe they spent $1 million, or 0.2% of total cycle spending.

    Just as the Russian pro-Bernie aspect isn’t mentioned, nor is the value of the fact the foreign owned and subsidized BBC America and and Al Jazeera America were extremely anti-Trump. Their viewership may not be gigantic, but I am sure the value of having two cable news channels running non stop anti-Trump stories was worth at least $1 million to Hillary.

  4. I wonder who mr. Katkuri supports in India. I am sure it could NEVER be ethnonationalist prime minister Modi. Mr. Kathuri views all people as equals. It’s the indian way!

    Having read a lot about the Russian operation, it really seemed like an intelligence gathering and testing operation. Some of the facebook ads they made they spent under $10.00 running.

    They question they were researching is whether Facebook and Twitter bots are a cost-effective method of promoting pro-Russian politicians abroad.

    I think it was also a shot across the bow to warn Western politicians that if they are unusually and extravagantly anti-Russian like HRC they’ll face hacking and fake news and meme operations.

    The dream scenario of a Tory-Brexit Party deal but not Lab-LibDem deal is looking increasingly likely.

    The result of this could be a Conservative landslide with 370 seats to Labour’s 170, and on top of this 10-20 Brexit Party seats and 10 DUP seats that are also generally conservative.

    There are 44 seats where Brexit Party is stronger than the Conservative Party. These are generally Labour held white working class areas that don’t like any major party and where Brexit referendum got 55% or more of the vote.

    An interesting poll one could take: walk around extreme Northern Virginia and the Mall of DC asking people “what’s that?” while pointing to the Washington monument. Those who get that right earn a bonus question, “Who was he? What did he do?”. I predict a whole lot of “Americans” would not get the second question right, and some number wouldn’t get the first one. Many of them would be wearing saris.

    Personnel is policy.
    Demography is destiny.

  8. So, the NYT is proud of democrat vote fraud in the election. Democrats estimate the number of cullut folks in a precinct, multiply that number by 1.5 and turn the result in as the vote tally. They are doing the same thing with immigrants, even illegals.

    It just isn’t possible that the same sort of totals can come out of the farming counties as in the cities, but that’s what happened this time.

    He adds: “But there’s definitely a growing intolerance towards immigrants at the moment and immigration, and as an immigrant myself, I get caught up in that emotionally. And I’m hoping that, you know, by sort of talking about it, we’ll sort out if we can, you know…

    Indeed… Loath the natives have a right to get emotional about it… You’d think immigrants would see themselves as guests who haven’t a right to invite others but then that’s not how ethnic conflict works.

    The immigrant veto: Once an immigrant from a non-North Western European country enters a North Western European country or offshoot, the natives lose control of immigration policy. It can stay the same or expand but never contract. The native perspective becomes illegitimate.

    I’d love to say these YouTubers are completely off their rockers with this diatribe, but the truth is, their concerns are not entirely unfounded. You see, I know for a fact, I am definitely a danger to Japan!

    The way I see it, the only way Japan could have avoided the danger that myself and like-minded people represent — the perils that invariably accompany transition — is if they had kept this island nation isolated. Maybe pull a Trump card and build a wall. But that would not have been in the country’s best interest.Nor is behaving as if the nation is in fact isolated, homogenous, or even capable of stemming the tide of foreign influence on the culture and customs here.

    Those days are over. The people here, both Japanese and foreign, who embrace this truth will position themselves to succeed in the years to come. Those that don’t, well, they will likely erect or support the erection of obstacles to progress, or spew hate on video, as backward thinkers everywhere tend to do.

    Meanwhile, the world is going to keep coming here, some with embossed invitations due to Japanese necessity, some with adventurous sensibilities and disposable cash, some seeking opportunities to prosper, and some running for their lives from desperate situations seeking refuge.

    Exactly. And if there had been no Hart-Celler Act, the Democrat party wouldn’t even exist today–except perhaps as local representation in various ghettos.

    And that’s almost exactly where the GOP is headed now. Do what you have to, to adjust.

    Because this “demographic transformation” (the nicest euphemism I can think of) is permanent. In fact, it’s just getting underway.

  15. “Guns, that is the most pressing issue for me,” said Vijay Katkuri, 38, a software engineer from southern India, explaining why he voted for a Democratic challenger in Tuesday’s elections. He was shopping for chicken at the Indian Spice Food Market. “There are lots of other issues, but you can only fix them if you are alive.”

    Mr. Katkuri’s vote — the first of his life — helped flip a longtime Republican State Senate district and deliver the Virginia statehouse to the Democratic Party for the first time in a generation. It was a stunning political realignment for a southern state, and prompted days of prognosticating about President Trump’s own standing with suburban voters nationally in 2020. But while political leaders come and go, the deeper, more lasting force at work is demographics.

    South Asians have BIG problems with gun ownership and the sooner we rid the USA of H1Bs, the easier it will be to defend gun rights. Typical anti-gun South Asian desecendants like IL 8th Congressional Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi are killing gun rights.

    Looking at YT videos of SHOT show, can’t recall seeing any South Asian continent types; did see Chinese types, Phillipinno (Mixed Flip), Blacks…

Around that time, I had a Class A CDL and was driving a $120K tractor with a $200K trailer and as much as $5 million in cargo and I could not rent a Ferrari, even with a $25 k credit card limit and $100K plus of house equity I was willing to collateralize. So was it money privilege or vagina privilege she could rent a Ferrari and I could not?

    Many are known to bizarrely justify this by waving towards a collection of things said to have happened in one part of Europe approaching a century ago during a period of a few years, by people who are supposedly similar (NW Europeans) to us the living; some of this vague collection of things probably happened, some not. Grandiosely assigned a capital letter, many of us are legally mandated to believe it under punishment of fines and even prison if publicly disbelieving.

    It is a bizarre, religious-cult-like idea. Yet it underpins the whole, weird project. A manifestation of it is what you label there the Immigrant Veto.

    Wow. Thanks for this info, Jim Don Bob. That does like a clear case of a press cover-up, and something like communist regime media tactics.

    But I am thinking Christian Dorsey would have been re-elected anyway, because [1] his name has a ‘D’ next to it, and [2] he’s nonwhite.

    I think the Arlington, Virginia, of today is one of those “1/3rd hardline-White-D [highly educated, SWPL types, with seemingly-obligatory leader figures with names like Katie Cristol], 1/3rd Non-white-D (though relatively few regular Blacks), 1/3rd regular Whites,” the latter being non-ideologues who lean conservative but may switch their votes depending on the specific candidates and so on. Adjust these percentages if you want, but the point remains; end result is: One-party town, Democratic Party lock.

    (note: Ilhan Omar’s family also reportedly spent some time living in Section 8 housing in Arlington in the 1990s. Another famous Arlington,Va. guy in his youth: Nidal Hasan, Fort Hood shooter.)

    Even if Jesus Christ himself returned and ran as Republican, he’d be defeated there by Mickey Mouse (D) at this point.

    @GOPArlington said Nov. 8:

    @ArlingtonVA County Board Chairman #ChristianDorsey’s ethical and financial misgivings are certainly not the “Arlington Way.”

    He betrayed the voters’ trust by deliberately hiding relevant information from us prior to Election Day. We will release a statement soon.

    So what’s the story? Failure of opposition research? In a first-past-the-post system and one-party hegemony, opposition parties in places like this just become little political clubs, at most, not serious organizations.

    Foreigner or American, what’s the difference?

    The problem is America’s naturalization process. It takes 5 yrs for someone who got off the boat to apply for citizenship and have ALL THE RIGHTS of people who’ve been here for 100, 200, 300, 400 yrs. Thus, history doesn’t matter in America.

    A sounder naturalization process would have been gradual. First arrival gains certain rights. His children gain more rights. And then, his grandchildren, second-generation kids, have full rights, even to vote.

    But US law says some Hindu or Chinese or Mexican can come here, live for 5 short yrs, apply for citizenship, and have the same voting rights as people with deeper roots here. Thus, it’s hard to tell what is an American and what is a foreigner.

    At least in the past, most immigrants were white and could assimilate to Core America. But the process is different with non-whites, esp in the age of anti-white PC.

    In a way, White America is becoming ‘Koreanized’. One may say ‘Vietnamized’ but the nation was eventually united under communist-nationalists. In contrast, Korea remains divided. Once a single unified people, they were divided and set against one another. Those in the North were brainwashed to hate those in the South as whores of imperialism. Those in the South were drummed to hate those in the North as commie lunatics. These Koreans, instead of asking WHO DIVIDED US AND SET US AGAINST ONE ANOTHER, just go along with the imposed Narrative at the start of the Cold War. They are still two dogs barking at each other.

    While there were always liberals and conservatives in American history, white people belonged to one race. Even after the bloody Civil War, the hatchet was buried and White America lived on. New Deal Democrats were patriots too. When radicals got too crazy in 60s, even many white Democrats voted for Nixon. And in the 80s, it seemed like many boomers came to their senses and put the 60s behind them, and it was red, white, blue once again.

    But then, with the rise of intensive PC education beginning in the late 80s/early 90s, truly a new breed of White Americans came into being. Not white reformers but white self-loathers and white degenerates. Especially with Jewish and Homo takeover of America, the main goal became to divide White America into Men vs Women, ‘left’ vs ‘right’, ‘blue state’ vs ‘red state’, etc. Just about the ONLY thing all sides agreed on was ‘Muh Israel’.
    Thus, in the long run, White America became like Korea. What the US(and USSR as junior partner) did to Korea, Jews(and homos as junior partner) did to White America. Divided into two camps that totally hate and despise one another. This is why Sailer Strategy goes only so far. Too many whites are appalled by the notion of white identity or white interests and are only too proud to vote against any such. They are triggered even by “It’s Okay to be White”. One would like to believe the white self-lovers are better than white self-loathers, but even the former love Jews and Israel more than anything DESPITE the fact that Jews have been most instrumental in using media and academia to spread anti-whiteness among whites as the highest value.

    South Korea vs North Korea. White Lovers vs White Loathers. All those Loathers voted for Dems in Virginia.

The righties have tried to take the horse to water many times, but it just won’t drink. Blacks will be stuck at 10 percent GOP at best for the next two or three decades, and with Hispanics, it might get to 40 percent on a really good election day (although probably more like 35).

    The real problem is, people on the right won’t get on with the Sailer ?(solution, hypothosis, etc.) that calls for getting more whites on the bandwagon. I mean, honestly, if the Rep’s are only getting 53 percent of white women in the last election, something is F#$#ed up. And really, even lefties know that their fellow travellers are messed up in the head, but they don’t attack them. R’s (elected and pundit class) are all the time attacking “alt-right” people.

    I would suggest whoever wrote that could have meant something like “The cultural zone that became ‘The South’ began in (southeastern) Virginia in the early 17th century,” four-hundred-some years ago.” Virginia remained the leading state, in some ways, even into the early 19th century. (Hence the placing of the new federal capital district on a 100-square-mile tract that included land in Virginia.)

    The writer couldn’t figure out how to say that elegantly and briefly without conceding that the cultural zone we call the American South (or Dixieland) has a legitimate historical identity.

    So what the writer perhaps meant was something more like a “cultural hearth,” but using terminology like that would be a problematic concession to, and legitimization of, White Southern identity. One thing bungled into another, and the writer was left with “heart,” perhaps originally intending “the heart of the South,” but finally tacked on “confederacy” [sic] instead.

    The story is that nobody cares because they’re all on the same team. Arlington has been one-party county for 30+ years. They briefly had some independent on the county board in the early 90’s and the Dems went hysterical, mobilized, and defeated him at the next election cycle with the current Board Chairman Jay Fisette (naturally, a homosexual).

    Looking at a map, Arlington and Washington DC make up a square. Its just the part of the “federal city” ceded back to VA, and is filled with federal workers, lawyers, lobbyists, federal contractors, lawyers to government contractors, contractors to government lawyers, etc.

    Even back in the 50’s and 60’s there was a busybody group called “Arlingtonians for a Better County”…aka ABC isn’t that cute. They were “nonpartisan” but their policies were all cut-and-pasted from “progressive” platforms and their staff was all Democrats. Typical was Ellen Bozman. She won election to the Board in 1973, then ran and won five more times. The first five times she was an “independent” from the nonpartisan ABC and then she shocked everyone (not really) by running as a Democrat. Arlington liberalism isn’t San Fran style looniness, instead it is “experts” and “progressive” and the sort of smug “we know what’s best for everyone” type of liberalism. Arlington is so tightly aligned to the federal government that is essentially recession-proof and the spend-happy County Board can just tax their way out of any jam. As such Arlington is a pretty livable place (if you can stomach the politics).

    Typical of rule by lawyers and schoolmarms: There can never be enough public transportation. Even though Arlington is mostly served by the DC metro (both buses and subways), they also have their own bus service just in case somebody somewhere needs a ride. A few years ago they decided to put a light-rail trolley down the middle of Columbia Pike. After a few years and a few million of research it was pointed out they’d need two sets of tracks not just one and they shelved it. Naturally there was no outcry over the wasted money and nobody lost their job or was admonished in any way.

    Right. Loudon County was the stomping grounds of John Mosby, the “Grey Ghost of the Confederacy”. He needed to function as a guerrilla because that part of Virginia was either fully occupied or subject to frequent Union raids. It wasn’t the “heart”.

    There are countless locations in Loudon, Fauquier, Prince William, and Fairfax counties where Mosby spent the night, burned a railroad bridge, commandeered arms and/or horses, attacked a federal encampment, slapped a Union general on the ass to wake him before taking him prisoner, etc. Its beautiful country and seeing it filled with duplexes and the attendant traffic is heart-breaking. The fact the duplexes and cars are filled with people like this dreadful Indian just makes it worse.

    It’s not like a lot of non-whites were favorably inclined toward the GOP until Trump came along, though the New York Times would like to imply that.

    Clearly the key to the success of a party whose members are 80% white is to strive to be even more anti-white than the Dems. If only Trump would stop talking so incessantly about white unemployment and the needs of the white community, then the GOP would have a chance to win the votes of POCs. And his top priority, the urgent need to do something about “White Death?”?

    All-cause mortality, ages 45–54 for U.S. white non-Hispanics (USW), US Hispanics (USH), and six comparison countries: France (FRA), Germany (GER), the United Kingdom (UK), Canada (CAN), Australia (AUS), and Sweden (SWE).

    The consequences of this divergence have been staggering. If the white midlife mortality “had continued to decline at its previous (1979‒1998) rate,” Case and Deaton estimate, “half a million deaths would have been avoided in the period 1999‒2013, comparable to lives lost in the U.S. AIDS epidemic through mid-2015.”

    Oy vey. Pajeets don’t care about that. Drumpf needs to just shut up about it all ready.

    But when he got his citizenship in March and started talking with his friends about whom to vote for in the first election of his life, he realized it had to be Democrats. Mr. Trump helped him decide.

    “The way he speaks, you get the feeling that you are separate,” Mr. Katkuri said. “This is not what we signed up for in America.”

    I’ve got an idea: How about no more Asian immigration? Hoping blacks will scare naturally gun-averse Asian civilians into being selfish supporters of the Second Amendment is really dumb. Rooftop Koreans are a fine example of ad hoc militia action in the collapse of law and order, but it’s cringe to cite them as anything indicative of Asian attitudes in general towards gun rights.

    Arlington had a bad case of bus envy. Surrounding counties all had their own bus lines, so why not us?
    Of course, the ART buses all run on natural gas and are painted green. The county spent a million dollars to build an NG refueling station. The joke around here is that the reason ART buses have tinted windows is so that the taxpayers can’t see how empty they are.

    Two more:
    1) About 15 years ago, the county hired a NYC artist for $2 million to decorate the sewage treatment plant.
    2) About 8 years ago, they spent $900k+ to build a “transit shelter” that had heated seats, real time route info, but no roof!

    Aside from the Jews in New York City, do you think residents NYC are “naturally gun adverse?”

    I don’t think so; they’ve been raised and bred in a cosmopolitan anti-gun environment; no different from Chicago where every opinion maker from the local newspapers, television, magazines is anti-gun. From childhood, about the ONLY pro-gun opinions I ever saw were in the Letters section of the newspaper and an occasional op-ed on television. That was it; on a national scale, you can add WSJ newspaper editorials. Today, you can add talk radio to pro-gun opinions you can acquire on a passive basis.

    If you had no “gun culture” around you as you grew up, that means you were “shepherded” (thanks, Nicholas Stix!) in your thinking about guns from the prevailing anti-gun culture and literally never gave guns much thought.

    The current chairman in one Christian Dorsey who is Amish.

    What kind of euphemism is that?

    Arlington, Virginia, County Board Members:

    (left to right in picture)

    – Erik Gutshall (b.1970; Arlington resident since 1995; Board Member, 2017-)
    – Libby Garvey (b.1951; Arlington resident since 1977; Board Member, 2012-)
    – Christian Dorsey (b.1971; Arlington resident since 1993; Board Member, 2015-)
    – Katie Cristol (b.1985; Arlington resident since 2011; Board Member, 2015-)
    – Matt de Ferranti (b.1973; Arlington resident since 2013; Board Member, 2018-)

    In the same order:
    – White-Christian;
    – Jewish;
    – Black (Jewish wife);
    – Jewish;
    – White-Christian.

    Of these five Arlington County Board members, three are married, one was married from her early 20s to late 50s but is now a widow, and one has apparently never married (de Ferranti).

    Of the four spouses between the five of them, one is Jewish (surname: Feldman), one was a Quaker (Garvey, deceased), two are apparently other Christians (Gaspari and Giballa — both of Northern European appearance), with the latter two being, I’d say, 45-45-10 calls on Protestant-Catholic-AnyOther origin/affiliation/identity (that is, if pressed for a religious identity), respectively, based on available information.

    LIBBY GARVEY (nee Test)
    Arlington [Va.] County Board member, March 2012 to present

    (information below is taken from interviews, campaign material, and other public info; see especially “Garvey, the Fighter,” article by Liam Malakoff, Aug. 2011)

    _____________________

    – Libby Garvey was born 1951 in Cambridge, Mass. as Elizabeth Test;

    Family origin for Libby Garvey: Likely Jewish, given especially her maiden name:

    Test [Jewish (Ashkenazic)]: Metonymic occupational name for a refiner, from Yiddish test ‘crucible’, ‘melting pot’…”

    Libby describes her father as someone who frequently moved the family “chasing the pot of gold,” who went bankrupt and “left the family” in 1971, at which time she was about 19 and a younger brother was about 6; the younger brother (Edward ‘Mac’ Test) is today a Renaissance scholar who has just published a book titled Sacred Seeds: New World Plants in Early Modern English Literature (2019), which “reinstates the contributions of indigenous peoples to European society, charting an alternative cultural history that explores the associations and assemblages of transatlantic multiplicity rather than Eurocentric homogeny;”

    1950s and 1960s: Libby spends much of her youth in the Philadelphia area, where [speculative] her ancestral roots back to the Ellis Island era may be (30% of people named Test on the 1920 census lived in either Pennsylvania or New Jersey);

    – ca. Early 1971: Meets Yale student Kennan Garvey (of Indiana; Quaker origin) [1951-2008]; “Their first date was spent watching the controversial trial of Black Panther founder Bobby Seale [jury selection for this trial began in late 1970 and the trial proper looks to have been in the early months of 1971]. Their second was a trip to Washington D.C., in order for her to serve as a justice of the peace during the 1971 May Day protests;”

    1973: Graduates with a BA from Mount Holyoke College [Massachusetts], Political Science & Economics; also in 1973, the day after graduation, marries college boyfriend Kennan Garvey;

    1973 to 1975: Peace Corps service with new husband Kennan Garvey; they are sent to the Central African Republic; after the Peace Corps (1976), they relocate to the Washington, D.C. area, then approaching its low ebb with high crime and the rising political career of a cocaine addict from Mississippi named Marion Barry (then of the DC Council, soon to be Mayor);

    Early 1977: Moves to Arlington, Va. (Fairlington neighborhood) with husband, who begins a thirty-year career with the federal government, rising to “Branch Chief and Program Analyst in the division of Pesticides for the EPA;”

    ca. late 1970s: Garvey’s husband gets involved with a Quaker congregation in Washington, maintaining an affiliation until his death;

    1978: Works for Congressman Lee Hamilton, who represented Libby’s husband’s district in Indiana;

    1979 and 1982: Daughters born; eventually five grandchildren (four of whom were born in the 2000s), of whom one has a Hispanic name;

    1980s: Libby Garvey raises her two young daughters, “directs Mount Holyoke’s Washington internship program,” and does volunteer work;

    Early 1990s: Emerges as a figure in the local PTA, which can be called the start of her political career; in 1992, she was a delegate at the Democratic National Convention (again at the 2004 convention that introduced an exotic and hitherto-little-known figure named Barack H. Obama);

    1996: Elected to Arlington, Va., School Board (serves to 2012);

    Aug. 2011: Libby Garvey loses a close race for Virginia State Senate against two primary opponents — Adam Ebbin (b.1963 in New York; Gay; Jewish) and Rob Krupicka (b.1971; straight, White-Christian male from Southern California). The Ebbin-Krupicka-Garvey vote split was 39-36-25. Ebbin remains in the Virginia Senate today. Krupicka went on to serve 3.5 years in the Virginia House of Delegates, and was replaced by a very-Semitic-looking man named Mark Levine (b.1966; like Adam Ebbin, is also Gay and Jewish). This Mark Levine’s resume includes previous work as a “Nazi hunter,” after receiving a BA in Economics from Harvard and a JD from Yale;

    March 2012: Libby is elected to the Arlington County Board in a special election (re-elected Nov. 2012 and Nov. 2016);

    2014: As part of her campaign against the plan to install a streetcar that would compete with car traffic along a major road, she endorses a non-Democrat-machine independent candidate, who wins a surprise victory (Nov. 2014), after which the streetcar plan is cancelled; the independent then loses handily in Nov. 2018 to a no-name D-teamer;

    Nov. 2016: Libby Garvey is re-elected to the County Board; as Chair, Garvey convenes a special session several days after the election condemning the stated Trump immigration policy; fellow Board member Katie Cristol taunted Trump and his supporters that the Arlington police would never be allowed to question illegals about their status, and Garvey added the following:

    “Arlington County has always been and will remain a community that welcomes and values all its residents, treating them with human dignity and respect regardless of immigration status,” said Jay Fisette, another board member.

    “This is a beautiful, wonderful community and we will do everything we can to preserve it,” said Board Chair Libby Garvey, “and I am hopeful that we can.”

    (Funny choice of words there, ‘preserve.’)

    Aside from the Jews in New York City …

    Orthodox Jews in NYC aren’t necessarily gun averse.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shomrim_(neighborhood_watch_group)#New_York_City

    “In April 2016, Alex Lichtenstein, a former Brooklyn South Shomrim leader who was Boro Park’s liaison to the NYPD, was charged with bribing police officers to obtain 150 gun permits for $6,000 a piece, then selling them to community members for $18,000.”

    … do you think residents NYC are “naturally gun averse?”

    Not all NYC residents are natives. A significant amount (majority?) are transplants from other parts of the US or recent immigrants. This subset of residents are self-selecting people attracted to the established living conditions of NYC. Asians (immigrants and American born) gravitate towards deep blue cities and their blue suburbs by choice, and vote blue—revealed preference is evident.

    If you had no “gun culture” around you as you grew up, that means you were “shepherded” (thanks, Nicholas Stix!) in your thinking about guns from the prevailing anti-gun culture and literally never gave guns much thought.

    Right. That’s why I don’t want immigration from anywhere without a law-abiding American-style “gun culture.” Cultural imprinting is often hard to break and can last a lifetime, and indeed, generations. Add possible genetic ‘evo-psych’ racial dispositions, e.g. a Confucian instinct for a hive-like “Harmonious Society,” and bye-bye Bill of Rights.

    Your obsession with this one bugman looking dude, whom the Army sagely kept out of the intel branch, says nothing about Asian voting patterns. He may be a patriotic American, but he’s not typical of his ilk.

    1993: Graduates with a BS from Georgetown University, International Relations and Foreign Service; also in 1993, moves to Arlington, Va.;

    1997 to 2000: Dorsey runs “a program dedicated to providing the DC metro area community with tools to fight racism, Anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination;”

    2000 to 2004: Runs a group that “provides literacy outreach programs for children who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless;”

    2004 to 2008: Runs a group that “develops affordable housing in conjunction with area non-profits and community organizations, and operates a social services center fro [sic] the residents inand [sic] around Nauck in Arlington, VA;”

    Oct. 2005: Christian Dorsey marries Rachael Feldman, a Democratic Party activist and active member of a Washington synagogue; two daughters later born (ca. 2008 and 2012);

    Jan. 2008 to early 2017: Director of External and Government Affairs, Economic Policy Institute, a left-wing economic policy think tank in Washington;

    Nov. 2015: Elected to Arlington County Board for first time (alongside co-candidate Katie Cristol);

    Jan. 2016: Begins involvement with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) via appointment to the position of Alternate Director; promoted in June 2018 to Principal Director (one of two from Virginia at WMATA);

    Oct. 2019: Declares bankruptcy — media somehow misses the story for a few weeks;

    Nov. 5, 2019: Re-elected to County Board amid token opposition (two-seat race, 75%+ voted for Dorsey while 81% voted for co-candidate Katie Cristol; two other vanity candidates appeared on the ballot);

    Nov. 6, 2019: Media reports that he failed to report large contributions from the WMATA (kickbacks?);

    Nov. 7 2019: Christian Dorsey’s major bankruptcy is reported in the media for the first time; meek protest from local opposition follows.

    In his 2019 campaign appeal to voters, Christian Dorsey boasted about his resistance to the Trump administration on immigration, as in his threat, issued from his position as Chair, to refuse to cooperate with any federal deportation efforts:

    Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey’s statement on immigration

    On June 18, 2019, Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey made the following statement, reaffirming Arlington’s stance on immigration.

    “Once again, the President of the United States has issued a vague threat via Twitter that seems designed to sow fear and discord across this nation. On Monday night [June 17], President Trump vowed to begin mass immigration arrests and removals of, as he put it, ‘millions of illegal aliens,’ beginning next week. We cannot know whether this is a serious plan, or just another tweet that will be rescinded or forgotten within days – as so many of his tweets are. […]

    “I would urge anyone in our community who fears he or she may be at risk, should this policy actually be carried out, to visit the County website, where you will find a wealth of immigration resources, in English and other languages. This Board has approved funding for the Legal Aid Justice Center, to provide legal services to immigrants, and I would urge anyone with legal questions to contact them.

    “If this latest escalation turns out to be real, Arlington will not be assisting in any mass round up and deportation of families or the separation of yet more children – some as young as infants – from their families.

    – Katie Cristol was born 1985 in Atlanta;

    ca. 1993: Father’s job in trade association management leads the family to move to Montgomery County, Maryland;

    2003: Graduates from high school; is accepted to the University of Virginia, which she attends;

    mid 2000s: Cristol meets future husband Steve Giballa (born ca. 1984) while both were students at the University of Virginia (marr. 2011), “Steve petitioned me to perform a part in his Playwriting III class project in 2006, and the rest was history;”

    2007: Graduates with BA in Political & Social Thought, University of Virginia, at which her Activities and Societies include: University Democrats, Sexual Assault Peer Advocacy, and campus newspaper The Cavalier Daily;

    2011: Graduates with Master of Public Affairs in Domestic Policy, Princeton; Activities and Societies include Gender & Policy Network;

    2011: Hired by Education First Consulting, Arlington, Va., where she remains today (as Consultant); as soon as she arrives in Arlington, she begins to get involved in the local Democratic Party machine — e.g., is “appointed to the Arlington Commission on the Status of Women by the County Board in 2012;”

    Nov. 2012: Katie Cristol is profiled in Washington Post for first time (“The Confident Generation: Millennial women are changing what work looks like,” by Laura Sessions Stepp) — how she was selected of all possible subjects of such an article is unclear;

    2013: Buys home with husband Steve Giballa in Arlington (see quotation below on why she likes her neighborhood / chose to buy where she did);

    Nov. 2015: Elected to the Arlington Country Board, puts diversity promotion at the center of her campaign;

    Here is Katie Cristol, in Jan. 2019 (Northern Virginia Mag), on the Unite the Right rally, either misinformed or deliberately lying for political points:

    In addition to the general alarm and concern I felt as an American, it wouldn’t be accurate to say [Unite the Right] was like watching a terrorist attack on somewhere that I loved, it was a terrorist attack on somewhere that I loved

    To see the violence perpetrated by the Unite the Right rally attendees…[i]n addition to the general devastation that I felt, to see that happening in our nation, it felt so personal to see it happening in a city that I love.”

    Katie Cristol on why she likes Arlington (from interview in Washington Jewish Week):

    My vision for Arlington, what’s attracted me to live here and what I want to preserve about it, is the diversity

    (‘Preserve’ the diversity!)

    Katie Cristol on why she likes her neighborhood:

    We really love the vibrancy here, …that mix of old and young. A terrific mix of ethnic restaurants for example. Great Ethiopian food and papusas at the same time. The food becomes emblematic of the vibrancy here.

    (‘Vibrancy’ count: Twice in <50 words.)

    Parents of Erik Gutshall: Father, Dennis J. Gutshall (of Akron, Ohio) [1944-2001], and Lotte nee Hordam (of Denmark) [1941-], who were resident of Sterling, Virginia, as of the 1990s; Erik’s father was a Master Sergeant in the US Air Force, a rank suggesting a long, possible twenty-year career, from ca. mid 1960s to ca. mid 1980s);

    Ancestry of Erik Gutshall: Erik’s grandparents were born in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Denmark, and Denmark. His maternal grandparents never emigrated to the US; his US side’s surnames are: Gutshall, Rhinesmith, Kline, Mumper (these four all of Pennsylvania-German stock and in Berks and Perry counties, Pennsylvania, as of the early 19th century), Young, Heffelfinger, Peterman, Gard (these four lines mainly in Ohio by the early-mid 19th century); this makes Erik Gutshall himself (b.1970), in terms of ancestral-stock, about 40% German (25% Pennsylvania-German [colonial stock], 15% other German [via 19th-century Ohio]), 10% colonial-US British Isles ancestry; 50% Danish of very recent foreign origin (mother’s birth — and upbringing?);

    Religious affiliation: Presbyterian; Given Erik’s ancestral profile (above), it’s very likely that most of his ancestors between the 16th century and 20th century were Lutherans, and records show that his paternal grandparents were married by a Lutheran minister (Harold Lentz) in Ashland, Ohio, in March 1940. Erik Gutshall himself, though, been affiliated with Western Presbyterian Church, “a progressive Christian community in Foggy Bottom [Washington, DC],” presumably dating to the mid 1990s during his MA studies at George Washington University; possibly this church was his wife’s (or, the choice thereof);

    1970s: Erik may have been resident of the Tampa, Florida, area for some period in the 1970s, and was possibly born there; his father’s Air Force career may have attached him to MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa;

    June 1988: Erik graduates high school (Broad Run High School) in Ashburn, Virginia, in then-still-largely-rural Loudoun County; the school was presumably around 90% White at this time (down to 64% White, already by the 2006-07 school year, per wiki, as immigration had started to make its mark);

    1992: Graduates with BS, James Madison University, Political Science;

    – ca. mid 1990s: Marries Renee Gaspari of Dallastown, York County, Pennsylvania (pictures suggest Renee is also of heavily NW European ancestry, despite Italian maiden name);

    1995: Moves to Arlington, Va.;

    1996: Graduates with MA, George Washington University, Public Policy and Environmental Resource Policy;

    2003: Erik Gutshall founds his own business, Clarendon Home Services (owner, to present?);

    – ca. 2004 to ca. 2010: Three daughters born (from campaign material: “As the father of 3 girls who will be in high school from 2018-2027, I know it is essential…”);

    2000s and 2010s: Active in civic life and local politics in Arlington; involved with Democratic Party machine;

    Nov. 2017: Elected to Arlington County Board to first four-year term, replacing Jay Fisette — (Note on Jay Fisette [b.1956]: A longtime County Board member [1998-2017] and the first LGBT Unitarian Universalist on the county board, Fisette lost his first race in 1993 in an Arlington in which Republicans could still, if narrowly and if given favorable conditions, win. The then-37-year-old Fisette’s 51-49 loss in the 1993 County Board race to Ben Winslow [1931-2001], an independent Republican, was probably the very last time that a Democrat has not had a walk-on-sure-thing election win for any race in Arlington; we see that Republicans stopped running candidates for this seat as of 2005 (during which year the seat was unopposed, with Fisette taking 97.4% of the vote with 2.6% write-ins — the same kinds of no-choice election they had in communist regimes); thereafter, the Green Party has been the only opposition party in elections for this seat; As of the 2000s and 2010s, anyone the ‘D’ machine puts up is a sure-thing; a one-party state.)

    2019: Press reports claim that Erik Gutshall had “colluded” with Amazon executives to secure the Amazon ‘HQ2’ deal in 2018.

    Jews and their Anglo/NW-Euro bitchboys are the biggest problem.

    and in the US it’s NYC and areas settled by New England (“New Amsterdam” and “Yankeedom” [1]). Jewish settlement tends to be in trading cities / areas — NYC in the US NE, cities on the “Left Coast” [1].

    It is a mistake to think that differences are alwasys primarily ethnic. The religious impulse to repent for your sin (which usually grows stronger with age) and to make everybody else repent for the same sin, possibly so you don’t have to, is about the same in Anabaptists (e.g. Quakers) and and Protestants (e.g. Presbyterians). The desire to do anything for a buck has been notably uniform in NYC since the Dutch set up their first trading post, and would remain the same if the Jewish population were to be replaced by Jains or for that matter Han Chinese traders.

    Not that ethnicity doesn’t matter, its that other things do as well. You have to consider these other things lest ignoring their interest induces them to ally against you.

    In the current world, _a_ major problem is the economic obsolescence of cities. Happens world wide, even in Canada. Urban inhabitants are not now providing services and goods needed by their hinterlands in return for food & other raw materials; they are extorting money as taxes, unproductive financial “industry”, introducing hostile foreigners. See Copleys work [2].

    This will end when the nations relax into a pattern of much less concentration. I’m using “relax” as a kind of numerical method / simulation technical term [3] — the actual process has not so far been relaxing in the conventional sense.

    values of freedom, self-reliance, and morality that most people can agree on, no matter what their cultural or social origins.

    Clan based societies do not believe that freedom, self-reliance, and morality are good. They believe in obligations within the clan, reliance on clan resources / influence, and suspension of morality when vital clan interests (such as immigration) are affected. In short, they treat the clan as a NE European treats his / her spouse and children.

    You have to remember that foreigners are _foreign_ and there are many ways to run a society, many evolutionary stable strategies [1], and how the interaction of such strategies can work out.

    They pretty much savaged Clinton and Gore for being southerners

    Um, they endorsed all of them. They cheered for them. Nice try with the lie, commie.

    Nor do I think Sarah Jeong is really anti white. She had very close ties to the alt-right movement.

    A straight-up lie.

    Otherwise known as *Citation needed.

    I think a lot of her anti-white posts were to try to cover her tracks while she had a boyfriend who was supposedly pretty big in the NY alt-right movement, and she was involved with a publication run by Gavin McInnes.

    Another straight up lie by a commie.

    Or, as I stated, *citation needed.

    She publicly promoted physically harming old white people and hoping whites burn to death. You can try to lie, little Bolshevik, but the truth has willed out. She’s a white-hating foreign bitch who deserves a beating and to be put back on the boat to her country.

    But you wouldn’t be a commie if lying didn’tt come so naturally to you!

  143. @bigdicknick

    ROFL.

    Seriously now.

    She got gleeful joy out of the pain of retirees because they were white, and called for whites to be burned to death.

    Get a clue. She HATES whites.

    I don’t know that’s entirely true. I guess it depends on whether you see all immigrants as a monolith, or you choose to dive a little deeper into the data. Some of the other articles here show how Asians behave differently from other migrant groups, even outperforming whites in many areas. I wouldn’t be surprised if the higher-income and higher-educated groups, migrant or not, tend to vote Republican. I did my MBA ten years ago and everyone was Republican — I suppose the fashionable phrase was “fiscally Republican, socially Democratic”. Fashionable or not, more people tended to favor free markets and meritocracy, and diversity wasn’t such a mandate back then. My class was roughly 70% Americans, predominantly white, and the remaining 30% included all minorities. Men-Women ratio were again 70-30. The GMAT scores and GPAs and other parameters were significantly more competitive for Asians (Chinese as well as Indians), because there were just way more of us vying for far few spots. The central belief was that 30% of minorities (women, migrants whatever) was enough to round out the discussion and make for interesting and varied viewpoints. I hope I’m not indulging in some revisionist history now… but I do recall feeling there was way less whining about not adequate representation and whatnot. Besides, I was from the class that entered just as the bottom fell out in 2009, and all those multi-million-dollar hedge fund salaries and bonuses and hot finance jobs dried up. It was a markedly different, sober and survivalist atmosphere in those years 2008-2010/2011, both in B-school and across the board with all the consulting companies and others. Tech wasn’t as hot as yet, and finance had dried up, and the few jobs available in consulting and other top companies were far less than years before because these companies had all overhired during the heydays of 2007.

    As for this article… Eh. He does talk about guns too and his views on that, but I guess that doesn’t fit the narrative about all Indians marrying for the green visa and bringing their parents over… oh wait, that’s Melania. Ok never mind.

    Anyway, If you actually profiled the group, I wouldn’t be surprised if you found that the majority of single Indians living in the US would probably want to marry someone else who’s already legally in the US, preferably on a work visa. Social customs and strong filial duties / sentiment still heavily influence the choice of Indians to marry from within their community / caste, but there seems to be a huge dropoff once you look at second-gen migrant kids. But even with first-gens, beyond the caste thing (which also is weakening with time and as attitudes shift), most Indians in the US don’t want to have to deal with a potential spouse whose entire support system is in their home country, who might have to deal with a culture shock, might have to live apart potentially for months, might have to deal with the uncertainty of visas, might have to deal with the frustration of one of them being on a dependent visa and hence not being able to work and at the same time being a financial burden on the other person.

    Some the stories don’t always fit the Sailor narrative… and it is inconvenient indeed. Where are those damn cousins and their smelly food when you need em.
