With Diversity Visas back in the news as the Uzbek Muslim truck terrorist in Manhattan got in o this country in 2010 on Ted Kennedy’s second bite at the immigration system, here’s my UPI article from 15 years ago on another Muslim terrorist beneficiary of the Diversity Visa:

Analysis: The curious immigration lottery

By STEVE SAILER, UPI National Correspondent | July 29, 2002 at 1:16 PM

LOS ANGELES, July 29 (UPI) — One of the U.S. government’s more obscure yet curious programs received some unwanted publicity on the Fourth of July when Egyptian immigrant Hesham Mohamed Hadayet killed two Jews at the Israeli El Al Airline counter of Los Angeles International Airport.

Hadayet had been scheduled for deportation in 1997, but was allowed to remain in America when his wife’s application to receive a coveted “green card” for permanent residency was randomly drawn by the State Department from the millions of applicants to the annual Diversity Visa Lottery.

What is this Diversity Visa Lottery that so few Americans have heard of, yet is of such avid interest around the world that anti-government riots raged in the impoverished African country of Sierra Leone in 1997 when 5,000 lottery applications mailed by locals were found floating in the Freetown harbor?

In the latest drawing, 8.7 million foreigners filed free applications. Permanent residency visas will then be handed out to 50,000 individuals from 167 countries. (That’s 174 applications per green card granted.) The lottery accounts for about 7 percent of all legal immigrants to the United States.

According to New York City immigration lawyer Richard Madison, “The purpose of the diversity lottery is to make the immigrant population of the United States more varied.” Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, who advocates abolition of the program, said, “The lottery is premised on the belief that America needs immigrants as such — not people with relatives here, or with job offers, or fleeing persecution — just more random people.”

The program allows more immigration from countries that don’t send America large numbers of immigrants through the normal channels of family reunification (which accounted for 72 percent of all immigrants in 1998), employer sponsorship (12 percent, which includes the employee’s spouses and children), and refugee status (8 percent).

When the 1965 immigration law opened the new era of mass immigration, a few Asian and Latin American countries quickly came to dominate the flow of immigrants. Those early arrivers, in turn, brought in their relatives who eventually brought in their relatives — what’s called “chain migration.” This left very little opportunity for people from countries that hadn’t gotten in on the system early to qualify to immigrate.

Oddly enough, the diversity lottery originated as a way to bring more whites to the United States. White ethnic politicians in America felt that their distant relatives in Europe had been squeezed out by chain migration from the Third World. So, natives of the 14 largest sources of legal immigrants — such as Mexico, India and China — are banned from participating. In particular, Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., saw a diversity lottery as a way to boost the number of legal Irish immigrants.

Krikorian explained, “It was cooked up in the 1986 law to provide a way to amnesty Irish illegal aliens, since the main amnesty in that law primarily benefited Mexicans. In fact, to this day the lottery is often referred to by congressmen and their staff as ‘The Irish Program.’ But as the program evolved, and as there were fewer and fewer Irish illegals, its emphasis changed, and it’s now more accurately described as the Middle Eastern, East European and African program.”

Only 331 visas were awarded to Irish applicants this year.

Requirements for qualifying are fairly minimal. To be eligible to win permanent residency, a high school diploma is required. Failing that, the lucky winner can still get by with “two years of work experience … in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience.” Winners also must undergo a physical exam and a background police check.

Interestingly, this program run by the State Department increases immigration from the seven countries that the State Department has declared “state sponsors of international terrorism:” Iran (768 visas this year), Iraq (71), Syria (62), Libya (61), Cuba (529), North Korea (four) and Sudan (1,297).

It also awards permanent residency to the natives of two countries that are the prime sources of al Qaida — the network of suspected terrorists: Saudi Arabia (38) and Egypt (1,551). Other participating countries with active Islamist terrorist elements include Algeria (834), Lebanon (62) and Yemen (45).

The overwhelming majority of the winners of the lottery are not terrorists, of course. Ellie Azoulay of the American Immigration Center, a business that checks and submits lottery applications for $40, described two winners he knows personally. “One is my own mother, who won the DV1998 lottery program.”

“The other,” he continued, “is a friend who won the DV1999 lottery — a degreed academic professional, who came over to the USA as soon as her visa was issued. Since she has been in this country, she has been working and studying to finish her doctorate degree at a local university. She also works full time at a pharmaceutical company, and has a weekend job to pay for her schooling. They are both hard-working, honest individuals.”

Despite the enormous number of applications received annually, the government makes no attempt to skim the cream off the top. The lottery truly is a lottery. Rather than try to choose those applicants whose skills would most benefit America, the government simply draws blindly.

Judith Golub, a spokeswoman for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, defended the arbitrariness of the selection process, saying, “Maybe it serves to reflect who we are as a nation. This country has always valued diversity.”

Of course, it’s not logically necessary for the program to be a lottery for it to maintain its current commitment to diversity. The government could simply keep the present national quotas and just fill them with the highest potential applicants out of all those applying from each particular country.

While Americans sometimes seem uncomfortable choosing among immigration candidates, Canada uses a point system to try to identify those would-be immigrants who possess the “human capital” to most benefit Canada as a whole. Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Elinor Caplan explained, “Independent skilled immigrants (the largest single class of those admitted to Canada) are selected on the basis of their potential contribution to Canada’s economic and social well-being.”

In fact, potential immigrants to Canada can quickly determine whether they are desirable enough to qualify for an interview with a Canadian immigration officer. They need only visit the official immigration Web site at cic.gc.ca for about 15 minutes. There they can answer nine questions about themselves involving qualifications such as education, profession, age and language. Those scoring at least 60 out of 100 can advance to the second stage of Canada’s immigrant selection process.

America’s refusal to choose non-randomly among diversity visa applicants appears costly. A National Academy of Sciences study found that immigrants with below a high school education cost the country $90,000 net over their lifetimes, while those with the equivalent of a high school education cost the United States $30,000. But immigrants with a college education or more brought a net benefit to the nation of $100,000.

By this calculation, over the course of a decade, the lifetime opportunity cost of admitting 500,000 high school graduates rather than the same number of college graduates would be $65 billion.

Others don’t want to just reform the diversity visa lottery. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., the head of the fast-growing Immigration Reform Caucus, has called for abolishing the diversity visa lottery.

Krikorian agreed. “The sooner the lottery is abolished the better,” he argued. “There’s no need for it; no constituency for it; and it’s harmful.

“Not only does it plant the idea of immigrating to the United States in the minds of people who had not previously considered it,” Krikorian went on, “but those who succeed create brand-new immigration chains from places which didn’t use to send immigrants. No one wakes up in Uruguay and says, “Today, I will move to Hoboken!” People only go to places where they already have friends or relatives. Any kind of lottery creates more networks of this kind, guaranteeing future illegal immigration from places that had no previous ties to the United States.”

    Blame your Republican swamp for Trumps hesitation on just deporting everyone that's here illegally.

    Whenever he appears tougher on immigration you have all Democrats (of course) screaming racism but also any amount of Republicans doing the same and repeating the same tired lines about "who we are".

    So, are you doing anything to help the situation or are you putting all the blame on the President that has pretty much the entire brainwashed nation against him? (including you).

    In the unlikely case you're doing anything make sure to frequently complain to your representatives about those activist judges that are screwing with the immigration system.

  5. Anyone with half a brain can see plainly that the solution is to bolster the Diversity Lottery by special $ellout E$tabli$hment emergency legislation to ramp it up to become the Super Open Border$ Double-Down Diversity Is Our Strength MegaMillions Lottery.

    However anyone with an entire brain can see plainly that the present Diversity Lottery has bestowed upon us Americans all the manifestly satanic “blessings” of Import The Third World And You ARE The Third World.

  6. When I first heard of the Diversity Lottery, I thought it was a joke. That was back in the 90’s when the word “diversity” was not a joke word yet. Two decades latter and this damned thing is still with us.

    It’s the ultimate black pill now. Given all that has happened, this idiotic program is still running and defended by the ruling class.

  10. Since I am Irish:

    The Irish in the US Congress are among the most treasonous scum on the immigration issue.

    Let’s take Caroline McCarthy…..Let’s take the marbles-in-the-mouth-rotting-piece-of-cornbeef and cabage Peter King…then there is the cockroach McCauley who represents the Hindus and Pakistanis in Queens…..I recall a traitor who represented the growing Hindu population in Westchester County who once justified the genocidal H-1 B Visa…L-1 B Visa Program on TV by arguing:”The Indians were America’s allies during WW11…therefore we owe Indian Americans the H1-B -L-1 B Visa Program….” I believe his last name to be McCarthy also…….Then there are the phony lying sacks-0f-shit…the McCord brothers…Frank slandered his own Irish Mother and neighbors back in Ireland for a second home in the Hamptons and an opportunity to hang out with….well, what the hell us would you call them….the repellant filthy disgusting periplaneta species know as Bill and Hillary Clinton…

    Back in 1986…the Irish should have stayed in Ireland and kicked the Muslims and Nigerians out of Ireland….

    Not too long ago…I had to drive a friend of the family back to the Covent after a birthday party in the family….Out of the clear blue, this elderly frail Irish Catholic Nun…said to me in the car:”You can not believe what is happening in Ireland…whole towns have gone Nigerian…I hate it…I hate it…..it’s not Ireland anymore…They do not belong in Ireland…They are not Irish”…I could swear she might have used the F word…but I can tell you this:This frail elderly Irish Catholic Nun from Ireland really wanted to….

    To anticipate the responses I know I’m going to get:I’m making a distinction between the aforementioned Traitors…and the rest of Americans of Irish ancestry….because you know, there were some really great Irish Americans such as Denis Kearney….who with the Jew Samuel Gompers gave us the wonderfull 1888 Chinese Exclusion Act…..

    Steve…have you read Denis Kearney’s Nobb Hill speech?…Isadore Choynski liked it….

  18. Every time someone on the right, or perceived to be on the right, commits a violent act our side immediately has to go into defensive mode because the other side uses the tragedy as an excuse to grab more power. Thus you have the wholesale removal of Confederate flags and statues, and the expected chorus clamoring for more gun control after Vegas and any other shootings involving white males.

    I wish Trump and company would use this to demand and end to what should have never been, the ridiculous diversity visa. Our side doesn’t do a good enough job making the other side pay when one of theirs commits a heinous act. Every time one of their pets does something like this the democrats should be on pins and needles thinking about what it’s going to cost them politically. Instead they’ll get to memory hole it and the GOP will be frighted off by the frontlash.

  19. 1 in 200 Men Direct Descendants of Genghis Khan

    In Russia among the Muslim Tatars and in Central Asia among the Uzbeks descent from Genghis Khan was a major calling card for any would-be warlord. This is peculiar in light of the fact that Genghis Khan, and his near descendants, were non-Muslims!

    Is Tamerlan Tsarnaev Named After a Brutal Warlord?

    Amir Temur, also known as Tamerlane, was a Central Asian ruler and warlord who lived in the 14th and 15th centuries. Scholars estimate that his military campaigns throughout Central Asia, Africa, Europe, and the modern Middle East killed about 17 million people, or 5 percent of the world’s population at the time.

    Identifying strongly with Mongol culture, Tamerlane wanted to restore the empire of Genghis Khan and conquered the modern nations of Iran, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Syria, India, and southern regions of Russia. He was a devout Muslim who referred to himself as the “Sword of Islam,” even though he razed many of the Islamic world’s greatest cities at the time.
    […]
    Respected as a national hero in Uzbekistan, site of his imperial capital of Samarkand, he is regarded with loathing—with good reason—by the country’s neighbors, who remember, more than 600 years after his death, the numerous outrages he committed against them.”

    When I first heard of the Diversity Lottery, I thought it was a joke. That was back in the 90's when the word "diversity" was not a joke word yet. Two decades latter and this damned thing is still with us.

    It's the ultimate black pill now. Given all that has happened, this idiotic program is still running and defended by the ruling class.

    I think the whole point of the diversity visa by most backers from the beginning and certainly now among those who support its continuation is the interest in having a more racially heterogeneous America, which is seen as guarding against the rise of an extreme right wing authoritarian government and culture.

    A more racially heterogeneous non-white segment of the population would discourage those nonwhites from uniting, wouldn’t it? In that case, it works to the favor of “right wing authoritarian” whites.

    I was going to add that it also makes left-wing whites look like s***, but reality itself already performs that task.

    It is hard to scam as you do not need to pay a lawyer or get a congress critter or anyone else to sponsor you.

    Having a varied pool of immigrants is better than having them all from one background, where they can conspire against the majority or at least the influential minority that has political control. Ask Phyllis Kahn about all those Somali immigrants. Phyllis Kahn had 20 more years of public service in her and probably would have been reelected over and over again where it not for the nondiverse immigration from Somalia. Which would you prefer, an Uzbek running people over, or running for Congress. If all the immigrants to Kahn’s district were from random African locations Kahn would still be in power. Do you understand, power!

    Representing East Harlem, New York City, which had many ethnic Italians and Puerto Ricans, Marcantonio was extremely popular. He spoke Spanish, Italian, and English. He was elected to numerous terms in the House of Representatives from the 1930s until his defeat in the 1950 election.

    They hate all whites, catholic or not. And for better or worse, Catholicism is increasingly a Third Worlder's religion here in the USA and elsewhere.

    Almost nobody white in most of Europe attends Mass even occasionally, reads the Bible, discusses catholic doctrine even neutrally or openmindedly, I.e. it is woefully inaccurate to speak of Europeans' Catholic faith. That horse has left the barn.

    Also, you are surely aware that the very solid majority of Slavs are not catholic. Or are you somehow not counting Russians, Belarussians, Ukrainians, and Serbians as Slavs?

    It's great if you're catholic. I was born and raised catholic and was last in a Catholic Church just days ago. But Catholicism is and has long been resoundingly irrelevant to most Slavs, at best.

    Other than Poland, is there any catholic Slavic country that has even five million people? The other traditionally catholic Slavic countries have populations that are inconsequential, e.g. Slovakia, Czech Republic, Croatia.

As a kid in the 80’s, when I first started reading history books, it was the clear consensus that ethnic/racial/religious diversity was a source of tension that was to be managed, not a source of strength. In fact, it was the liberals themselves who denounced putting different ethnic groups under the same political system. Artificial borders were those that forced different groups together and were created by evil colonial powers to divide and conquer. The fact that leftists now support policies that they spent decades attacking as immoral and dangerous tells me they are deliberately trying to destroy our countries.

    I’ve been watching a lot of old video and the first mention that I can find of diversity being “our greatest strength” was election night 1988, when some Democrat functionary was spinning the Dukakis loss. He didn’t actually say diversity was America’s strength but rather the Democratic party’s greatest strength.

    Someone wrote a book "Diversity- The invention of a concept" about this subject.
    https://www.amazon.com/Diversity-Invention-Concept-Peter-Wood/dp/1594030421

    It a written in dry academic style so not reader friendly but in brief:

    The US Supreme Court Bakke decision in the early 80's restricted but did not completely ban reverse discrimination against more qualified whites in favour of less qualified blacks and other approved minorities applying to medical school. The Left seized on some wording in the Bakke decision inserted by Justice White (? from memory) that touted the benefits of a diverse student population at Universities. This newly discovered inherent goodness of diversity became the new justification for special givemethats to the Left's pet minorities, since redressing past wrongs via reverse discrimination aka affirmative action was now out-of-bounds.

    Hey , that's a good one, though I have started re-attributing some of that stupidity to evil lately.

    Anyway, the origins of that bring up something in my mind. It was in the early mid-1990's and this professor said something along the same lines as "diversity is our strength" to me just in a general conversation. The guy was fairly liberal more in the classical sense, and no dummy. He was a professor in a technical field and an overall good guy (he hated the politics involved in the publishing/research business that detracted from good teaching, for example).

    Even that instant, I thought to myself - "That's a new one. Why would that be true? It doesn't really make a lot of sense." After that, it kept coming up on the TV, but it was not long after that that I was off TV anyway. I think the idea was - just get everyone saying that and saying it some more. Just keep saying that, so it becomes an axiom.

    Thanks for that information also, Mr. Jesse Helms think-alike. Man we could use a guy like him again.

    an estimated 300,000 Muslims have gained green cards via the lottery over the last decade. once they obtain resident status they quickly obtain visas for their family members. The Visa lottery discriminates against Canada, Britain and China, as these nations are banned from the program.

    Strangely, the only data at those links proves the opposite of what Noah Rothman says.

    On the other hand, the data show that Muslims do not assimilate to modern Western notions of feminism and homo-worship ... which gives me an idea ...

    Next time immigration comes up at a sh*tlib dinner party I am compelled to attend:

    "I am now a supporter of more Muslim and third world immigration. The data clearly show that these people violently oppose the scourges of feminism and homosexuality, so when we have enough of them we can finally roll back those false doctrines which have had their boot on America's throat for too long."

    Cue wailing and gnashing of sh*tlib teeth.

    most leftists would gladly see homosexual rights eliminated in return for eliminating christianity from America. They supported Obama, despite his opposition to gay marriage. Leftists even tolerate Female genital mutilation , as a protected cultural practice. Leftist must truly hate their fellow Americans.

    Blame your Republican swamp for Trumps hesitation on just deporting everyone that’s here illegally.

    Whenever he appears tougher on immigration you have all Democrats (of course) screaming racism but also any amount of Republicans doing the same and repeating the same tired lines about “who we are”.

    So, are you doing anything to help the situation or are you putting all the blame on the President that has pretty much the entire brainwashed nation against him? (including you).

    In the unlikely case you’re doing anything make sure to frequently complain to your representatives about those activist judges that are screwing with the immigration system.

  89. To those saying Trump should get rid of the Diversity Visa Lottery he’d already backed a senate bill to do so. In an August article from Ireland’s Independent they explained it and went into details about the Lottery:

    The lottery’s origin dates back to the mid-1980s, when America had an Irish problem. Hundreds of thousands of Irish immigrants were flocking to the US, fleeing an economic crisis back home. They arrived too late to qualify for amnesty. Few had the family ties or job experience to qualify for green cards. And many were undocumented, coming as tourists and overstaying their visas.
    Irish-American members of Congress came up with a solution. A green card lottery.

    Green card lottery invented to help Irish – under Trump, its luck may have run out

    The 1965 act made it more difficult for would-be western European immigrants, including the Irish, to get accepted to the US:

    For a decade, Irish-American lawmakers offered different ways of increasing legal Irish immigration, but weren’t able to pass them.

    By the early 1980s, Ireland was undergoing an economic crisis that earned it the nickname “the sick man of Europe”. Unable to immigrate legally, hundreds of thousands of Irish came to America as tourists and then overstayed their visas.

    “About 150,000 Irish immigrants came to New York as students or tourists over the last six years and stayed on as undocumented aliens,” the ‘New York Times’ reported in 1988.

    In 1986, Republican Brian J Donnelly proposed an amendment to the Immigration Reform and Control Act that would provide 10,000 visas on a first-come, first-served basis for nationals of countries “adversely affected” by the 1965 changes. Senator Ted Kennedy filed similar legislation in the Senate. Then-speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill – yet another Irish-American from Massachusetts – ensured the amendment passed.

    The Irish were well prepared. Undocumented Irish immigrants in the US applied en masse, submitting multiple applications, which was allowed at the time.

    The Irish government even got involved, “chartering planes and literally depositing the applications in post office boxes on Capitol Hill”, according to Ms Law.

    “People still talk about Donnelly-visa parties, held in the US and in Ireland, where guests spent the early evening filling out hundreds of applications for the host,” the ‘Times’ reported. “Some applicants were known to have sent as many as 500 forms.”

    As a result, the first green card lottery was very green indeed.

    Donnelly’s NP-5 programme was a one-off. But he and others in Congress fought for a permanent version of the green card lottery in the Immigration Act of 1990, cagily couching it as an issue of “diversity”.

    “That was the rhetoric they used,” Ms Law said. “They couldn’t call it the ‘White-Europeans-who-don’t-have-job-skills-American-employers-want-and-don’t-have-ties-to-anyone-in-the-United-States-but-want-to-come-anyway’ lottery.”

    The whole thing was sordid from the beginning.

    The Diversity lottery has some charms:

    It is hard to scam as you do not need to pay a lawyer or get a congress critter or anyone else to sponsor you.

    Having a varied pool of immigrants is better than having them all from one background, where they can conspire against the majority or at least the influential minority that has political control. Ask Phyllis Kahn about all those Somali immigrants. Phyllis Kahn had 20 more years of public service in her and probably would have been reelected over and over again where it not for the nondiverse immigration from Somalia. Which would you prefer, an Uzbek running people over, or running for Congress. If all the immigrants to Kahn's district were from random African locations Kahn would still be in power. Do you understand, power!

    Blast from the past: What happens when you let Italians into the US.

    Rep. Vito Marcantonio, (Communist-NYC).
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vito_Marcantonio

    Originally a member of the Republican Party and a supporter of Fiorello LaGuardia, he switched to the American Labor Party. Later in his life, excepting his position on Japanese in America, Marcantonio grew to seem more of the far left of the American political spectrum, and was nationally known for his support from Communists in the 1940s.
    Representing East Harlem, New York City, which had many ethnic Italians and Puerto Ricans, Marcantonio was extremely popular. He spoke Spanish, Italian, and English. He was elected to numerous terms in the House of Representatives from the 1930s until his defeat in the 1950 election.

    Also recall that Ilhan Omar did some pretty freaky things to sneak into the country. Like marrying her brother, or pretending to do so. And now she tells you what to do, white man.

    Is Tamerlan Tsarnaev Named After a Brutal Warlord?


    Amir Temur, also known as Tamerlane, was a Central Asian ruler and warlord who lived in the 14th and 15th centuries. Scholars estimate that his military campaigns throughout Central Asia, Africa, Europe, and the modern Middle East killed about 17 million people, or 5 percent of the world’s population at the time.

    Identifying strongly with Mongol culture, Tamerlane wanted to restore the empire of Genghis Khan and conquered the modern nations of Iran, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Syria, India, and southern regions of Russia. He was a devout Muslim who referred to himself as the “Sword of Islam,” even though he razed many of the Islamic world’s greatest cities at the time.
    [...]
    Respected as a national hero in Uzbekistan, site of his imperial capital of Samarkand, he is regarded with loathing—with good reason—by the country's neighbors, who remember, more than 600 years after his death, the numerous outrages he committed against them.”

    What year did the idea that Diversity is Our Greatest Strength become mainstream? As a kid in the 80's, when I first started reading history books, it was the clear consensus that ethnic/racial/religious diversity was a source of tension that was to be managed, not a source of strength. In fact, it was the liberals themselves who denounced putting different ethnic groups under the same political system. Artificial borders were those that forced different groups together and were created by evil colonial powers to divide and conquer. The fact that leftists now support policies that they spent decades attacking as immoral and dangerous tells me they are deliberately trying to destroy our countries.

    I've been watching a lot of old video and the first mention that I can find of diversity being "our greatest strength" was election night 1988, when some Democrat functionary was spinning the Dukakis loss. He didn't actually say diversity was America's strength but rather the Democratic party's greatest strength. Leave it to the stupid party to adopt the slogan of the losing party and implement it into policy.

    Steve...have you read Denis Kearney’s Nobb Hill speech?...Isadore Choynski liked it....

    What year did the idea that Diversity is Our Greatest Strength become mainstream? As a kid in the 80's, when I first started reading history books, it was the clear consensus that ethnic/racial/religious diversity was a source of tension that was to be managed, not a source of strength. In fact, it was the liberals themselves who denounced putting different ethnic groups under the same political system. Artificial borders were those that forced different groups together and were created by evil colonial powers to divide and conquer. The fact that leftists now support policies that they spent decades attacking as immoral and dangerous tells me they are deliberately trying to destroy our countries.

    I've been watching a lot of old video and the first mention that I can find of diversity being "our greatest strength" was election night 1988, when some Democrat functionary was spinning the Dukakis loss. He didn't actually say diversity was America's strength but rather the Democratic party's greatest strength. Leave it to the stupid party to adopt the slogan of the losing party and implement it into policy.

The Left seized on some wording in the Bakke decision inserted by Justice White (? from memory) that touted the benefits of a diverse student population at Universities. This newly discovered inherent goodness of diversity became the new justification for special givemethats to the Left’s pet minorities, since redressing past wrongs via reverse discrimination aka affirmative action was now out-of-bounds.

    One of the most inexplicable phenomena of contemporary political alignments is the (unrequited!) love affair of shitlibs with muslims. It's many times crazier than Republicans' love affair with hispanic immigration. After all, it's not completely beyond the bounds of possibility that hispanics might some distant day start voting republican in roughly the same numbers as they vote democrat; and on a personal level, it's not hard to understand why someone like Jeb would be unconcerned about their demographic weight, given his facility with them. But it's entirely fantastical to imagine muslims ever making pet shitlib issues their own; and it's just as fantastical to imagine the typical shitlib having anything whatsoever to gain from watching her city become infested with muslims.

    The Muslims don’t have to make any shitlib issues their own. The shitlibs will capitulate. Look at London, or Rotherham, etc

    To the Hebrews who have colonized the US, anything that supports European pride is nazism. That's why they had to enslave the Slavs, also and murder them, starve them and lock them up in gulags. We can't have those nasty Europeans loving their people and their Catholic faith.

    They hate all whites, catholic or not. And for better or worse, Catholicism is increasingly a Third Worlder’s religion here in the USA and elsewhere.

    Almost nobody white in most of Europe attends Mass even occasionally, reads the Bible, discusses catholic doctrine even neutrally or openmindedly, I.e. it is woefully inaccurate to speak of Europeans’ Catholic faith. That horse has left the barn.

    Also, you are surely aware that the very solid majority of Slavs are not catholic. Or are you somehow not counting Russians, Belarussians, Ukrainians, and Serbians as Slavs?

    It’s great if you’re catholic. I was born and raised catholic and was last in a Catholic Church just days ago. But Catholicism is and has long been resoundingly irrelevant to most Slavs, at best.

    Other than Poland, is there any catholic Slavic country that has even five million people? The other traditionally catholic Slavic countries have populations that are inconsequential, e.g. Slovakia, Czech Republic, Croatia.

  124. @Matra
    To those saying Trump should get rid of the Diversity Visa Lottery he'd already backed a senate bill to do so. In an August article from Ireland's Independent they explained it and went into details about the Lottery:

    The lottery's origin dates back to the mid-1980s, when America had an Irish problem. Hundreds of thousands of Irish immigrants were flocking to the US, fleeing an economic crisis back home. They arrived too late to qualify for amnesty. Few had the family ties or job experience to qualify for green cards. And many were undocumented, coming as tourists and overstaying their visas.
    Irish-American members of Congress came up with a solution. A green card lottery.

    Green card lottery invented to help Irish - under Trump, its luck may have run out

    The 1965 act made it more difficult for would-be western European immigrants, including the Irish, to get accepted to the US:

    For a decade, Irish-American lawmakers offered different ways of increasing legal Irish immigration, but weren't able to pass them.

    By the early 1980s, Ireland was undergoing an economic crisis that earned it the nickname "the sick man of Europe". Unable to immigrate legally, hundreds of thousands of Irish came to America as tourists and then overstayed their visas.

    "About 150,000 Irish immigrants came to New York as students or tourists over the last six years and stayed on as undocumented aliens," the 'New York Times' reported in 1988.

    In 1986, Republican Brian J Donnelly proposed an amendment to the Immigration Reform and Control Act that would provide 10,000 visas on a first-come, first-served basis for nationals of countries "adversely affected" by the 1965 changes. Senator Ted Kennedy filed similar legislation in the Senate. Then-speaker of the House, Tip O'Neill - yet another Irish-American from Massachusetts - ensured the amendment passed.

    The Irish were well prepared. Undocumented Irish immigrants in the US applied en masse, submitting multiple applications, which was allowed at the time.

    The Irish government even got involved, "chartering planes and literally depositing the applications in post office boxes on Capitol Hill", according to Ms Law.

    "People still talk about Donnelly-visa parties, held in the US and in Ireland, where guests spent the early evening filling out hundreds of applications for the host," the 'Times' reported. "Some applicants were known to have sent as many as 500 forms."

    As a result, the first green card lottery was very green indeed.

    Donnelly's NP-5 programme was a one-off. But he and others in Congress fought for a permanent version of the green card lottery in the Immigration Act of 1990, cagily couching it as an issue of "diversity".

    "That was the rhetoric they used," Ms Law said. "They couldn't call it the 'White-Europeans-who-don't-have-job-skills-American-employers-want-and-don't-have-ties-to-anyone-in-the-United-States-but-want-to-come-anyway' lottery."

    The whole thing was sordid from the beginning.

    I don’t expect the foreign press to know the “inside baseball” stuff about American politics, but to call Brian Donnelly a Republican beggars the imagination!

    Just hours after the massacre happens, public officials come out to say the killer became radicalized AFTER he entered the United States. So I guess the message is his immigration status had nothing to do with the murders, since he didn't become a killer until after he came here. Funny how long term trends and "facts" about the suspect that exonerate the policy of massive immigration can come out within hours, but other facts in other mass killings take days or weeks to be to be revealed...and all the while we're cautioned "not to rush to judgement."

    1. The reporter or a politician on your screen is talking about a COWARDLY act (because Islamic terrorists will be so mortified at being called cowards that they will never do it again!)

    2. A reporter on the scene is reminding you that the citizens of your city are known for being resilient, strong, and will not let themselves succumb to fear.

    3. A city official will mention the shooting in Las Vegas as a reminder that we must be vigilant in our efforts to identify people who may commit acts of terrorism.
