This was retweeted by Annie Lowrey, a quite bright economics writer for New York, NYT, Slate, etc. who is married to Vox founder Ezra Klein. So, it is, safe to say, representative of The Conventional Wisdom, which is increasingly:

“The United States is a sovereign country.”

Wow. Just wow.

  1. Along the lines of a previous Steve suggestion that the GOP work to brand the Democrats as “the black party,” maybe now they have an excellent opportunity to brand them as the “Muslim party.”

    Because Pelosi is such a common last name among Muslims. It doesn't scream Italian at all.

    "The Black Muslim Party should do great in the flyover states!"

    Is Minnesota a part of Flyover Country? Because they are represented by a Black Muslim named Keith Ellison. Swedes sure love Islam and Blackness, whether it is in Sweden or their diaspora descendents in Minnesota. Both Sweden and Minnesota have a sizable Somali Muslim population.

    I actually used Steve's idea on my old-school liberal, i.e. blue-collar family history, wife with the women's march. Told her about the clash between the Nice White Ladies and the sisters. Then I said that she'd need to "check her privilege" from now on if she's going to stay a Dem.

    The look on face was interesting. A little pissy at me for bringing it up, but she didn't deny it, which means that she knew that to some degree that I was right.

    Btw, my wife may be a little bit of a Nice White Lady but she knows the score with blacks. Just doesn't like to talk about it. However, if blacks don't stop bring it up, she won't like it much.

    Much of the Muslim reaction to Trump goes to show that, as organisms, humans are materialists(seekers of comfort and convenience) before tribalists(keepers of memory, heritage, and lineage).

    Given all the mess caused in the Middle East and North Africa by American foreign policy(dictated by Zionists & Wars for Israel, Energy companies & control of markets, and Military-Industrial-Complex & addiction to superpower arrogance), you’d think the main message from Muslims would be LEAVE US ALONE and INFIDEL YANKEE GO HOME!!!
    Instead, the main message is LET US IN FOR A SLICE OF THE AMERICAN PIE!!

    Instead of Moral Outrage over America’s neo-imperialist horror-show in the Middle East and North Africa, all the bitter rhetoric is about America not being ‘welcoming’ enough to more Muslims. Given the decadent state of American Culture, why would any self-respecting Muslim even want to come to the US?
    And if Muslims are self-respecting, why aren’t they sufficiently angry about American meddling and invasions of the Middle East?

    In the end, Muslims can’t stand one another and figure even infidel America treats them better than they do one another. And they figure the infidel West offers more comfort and convenience than the Muslim world does.
    So, their main moral fixation is about America-letting-them-in than a sincere effort to defend their realm from the infidel.
    Besides, if the Muslim World wasn’t so divided, the US wouldn’t be able to play divide-and-conquer and form alliances to mess up the whole region.

    In the end, Muslims want more cookies in America than falafel in the Middle East. And they’ll give up identity, history, faith, and principles for more cookies.

    A truly self-respecting Muslim would first say DON’T INVADE US before PLEASE INVITE US. But it seems they sense that the Right of Invasion/Intervention by the US is their ticket to Invitation to the West.

    The place was "messed up" before we came; it will be "messed up" when we are gone.

    Muslims are fine with their countries; what you see as "messed up", they see as strong and able to send people out to conquer the world. Not too many of them come here to live as Americans; they come here to live as Muslims and bless us with their religion.

    "Given all the mess caused in the Middle East and North Africa by American foreign policy(dictated by Zionists & Wars for Israel,"

    Was The Middle East and North Africa just a Browner version of 1st World Switzerland before George W. Bush and the Neocons took over?

    How many Westerners wanted to immigrate to Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine, etc for a better life before the election of Bush Jr.?

  4. It’s too bad Samuel Huntington, the author of the book — Who Are We? The Challenges To America’s National Identity — is no longer among the living. Huntington wrote that the United States is a British Protestant settler nation-state. Huntington would have provided some nice pushback to the notion that America has no fixed founding stock.

    I would say that America is a European Christian nation-state.

    You must’ve seen this linked today on the DrudgeReport:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/759995/North-African-youth-gangs-Chinese-migrants-Paris

    GANGS of North African youths have terrified Chinese migrants amid complaints they have become ‘too rich’.

    The streets of Paris have erupted into inter-migrant strife as North African youths have targeted ‘rich’ Chinese migrants amid growing tensions.

    Police in France recorded more than 200 attacks on Chinese immigrants last year, mostly from hostile migrant gangs.

    This comes amid a growing perception that recent migrants from North Africa have become “too demanding” and consider themselves “victims” who deserve pity.

    Contrary to this, the long-standing Chinese community in Paris has gained a reputation for being “hard-working and managing without taxpayer help”.

    In a report from German channel DW, a Chinese migrant named Woo described how a gang of North African youths attacked him in his home last November.

    He said that the yobs threatened him and his wife with a knife and smashed his head, after which broke in and stole his valuables.

    He added: “I am scared. I don’t feel safe anymore.”

    In this country, and in Canada, the yellows are standing with the blacks and browns against the larger white culture. Good luck with that. I’m sure the blacks and browns will admire your qualities, talents, and culture like whites have. And I’m sure when whites are pushed off the stage Asians and Jews will really start to thrive.

    Frankly, I think the Chinese are playing the long game and expect to take control of the Pacific Northwest.

    Seizing from the whites would be difficult. Taking it from the blacks and browns, not so much.

    , @Jason Liu
    How did you reach that conclusion from reading the article? Barring white-passing Latinos. Asians are likely the most sympathetic group towards whites, a little too much so IMO.

    It's unlikely for any minority to completely side with the majority except under very unique circumstances. If anything there is a slow shift away from SJWism within the Asian community, as more and more young Asians are perceiving it as excessive, as well as a newfound nationalist pride in our home countries.

    Asian-Americans are obviously not going to go alt-right, but our own sense of nationalism will eventually put us in conflict with the ideas of the liberal left. It's just a matter of time, and preparation.
  8. The elite just cannot accept the idea of a sovereign country deciding who goes in and who does not.

    Hopefully, this trend will also be followed by other countries also becoming sovereign.

    Germany, France, etc. They were just following the diktat of Globalism and trying to imitate the U.S.

    But if the U.S. goes towards nationalism, there’s hope they will go nationalist too. At least, it’s to be hoped. Then it’s endgame for globonazis.

  9. Liberal Europeans hate sovereignty. It is at the core of their identity.

    Liberal Americans have traditionally differed from their European counterparts precisely on this matter. See the likes of Anne-Marie Slaughter, for example. When she redefines sovereignty for the world, she really means rule by the United States.

    But now liberal Americans have gone full liberal European at precisely the moment that the Europeans are rediscovering sovereignty. Liberal Americans have become like fashion in the old Soviet Union, always about 10 years behind the curve.

    “In a 1940 Muslim League conference in Lahore in 1940, Jinnah said: “Hindus and the Muslims belong to two different religions, philosophies, social customs and literature…. It is quite clear that Hindus and Muslims derive their inspiration from different sources of history. They have different epics, different heroes and different episodes…. To yoke together two such nations under a single state, one as a numerical minority and the other as a majority, must lead to growing discontent and final destruction of any fabric that may be so built up for the government of such a state.”

    I had a discussion with my wife on the subject. What prompted it was my showing of the following to her, very on topic:

    https://youtube.com/watch?v=nR7VhRq2yns

    She would rather not be confronted by the politics, and that she disagreed that every Muslim is a bad person. However, what it really came down to after a lot of discussion was that none of her friends/family think the same way that I do and that she doesn't want to be thought of as a "terrible person" and lose her friends.

    I asked her if she had read the Koran, and responded she didn't have the time. I asked if she remembered what the main principles of Christianity were. I think she had forgotten them too. I was expecting to hear something like "The Ten Commandments" or "The Sermon on the Mount". The point being is that the core message from the Koran is completely different. The meek do not inherit the earth in the Koran. Instead one must wage Jihad. If that is what the average Muslim thinks is a good thing, importing people like that will be the destruction of Western civilization and our way of life. If you are going to make a statement that not every Muslim is a bad person, you should make some attempt to understand what Muslims believe.

    I mentioned Malmo in Sweden, and that Sweden used to be the model state that leftists would mention for the rest of the world to aspire to, gun control, welfare, you name it the Swedes had it and this made them a leftist utopia. And now they are the rape capital of Europe with Muslim areas as no-go zones for the police. Why don't they kick them out? Well, it's because most Swedes are politically correct and don't want to be seen as "terrible people".

    Why don't the politicians do the right thing then? Because it takes a lot of guts, and they don't want to be seen as literally Hitler by the media.

    I made the point that the 1968 generation had no experience with non-whites, and saw the world through a lens where it was whites who were always the instigators of negative actions towards non-whites. So they have created this world that they had not anticipated, and they are too old to adapt very well for the most part. It is up to ours and future generations to adapt to this world that our parents' generation have created for us.

    I'm not saying this isn't a problem for continuing The United States in some semblance of the way we knew it, but I'm guessing that a large proportion of the "Hispanic" population is criollo - primarily Spanish or Portuguese descended with only a negligible admixture of Amerindian blood. The white proportion has no doubt been declining due to border jumping of the peasant classes of Mexico and Central America, but I don't think things are as bad (which is to say, utterly irreversible) as our adversaries would have us believe.

    I don't like gypsies except that they can make some great high spirited music. But there cannot be more than ten million gypsies on this planet. Muslims are worse because there are 1.5 billion of these absurd 5x daily head bumpers. Islam calls non-Muslim nations Dar al Harb, meaning The House Of War, meaning these nations and territories are up for grabs and that Islam has Allah's sanction to make war on them overtly or covertly via immigration and demographics.
    Islam calls the collective of Muslim nations Dar al Salam, meaning House of Peace. The peace of Allah, Mullahs, Imams, a false prophet and the robotic, self-brainwashing, 5x daily head bumping.

    Sure there are peaceful Muslims, who will only pick out the peaceful Koran verses to recite to the gullible Westerners. The peaceful Muslims in Western nations are the oceans that the radical fundamentalists swim in undetected. The radical fundamentalists could not survive in civilized nations without the mass of peaceful Muslim immigrants being there to disappear into. The radical fundamentalist Muslims can recite valid Koran verses that sanction their wars on non-Muslims and other Muslims as in the eternal Sunni vs Shiite wars.

    There's probably a great deal of cognitive dissonance--and selective (cherry picking) recall of facts/information. Annie/Ezra probably disagree, and don't think France is facing a terrorist threat.

    The prog-left mindset believes that Western (governments) society is the cause of acts of terrorism--that if the society were more welcoming, more open minded about accepting Muslims, then said acts would diminish. WE are the cause of said terrorism, i.e. that terrorism is an understandable reaction to racial/religious discrimination/persecution.

    GANGS of North African youths have terrified Chinese migrants amid complaints they have become 'too rich'.

    The streets of Paris have erupted into inter-migrant strife as North African youths have targeted 'rich' Chinese migrants amid growing tensions.

    Police in France recorded more than 200 attacks on Chinese immigrants last year, mostly from hostile migrant gangs.

    This comes amid a growing perception that recent migrants from North Africa have become "too demanding" and consider themselves "victims" who deserve pity.

    Contrary to this, the long-standing Chinese community in Paris has gained a reputation for being "hard-working and managing without taxpayer help".

    In a report from German channel DW, a Chinese migrant named Woo described how a gang of North African youths attacked him in his home last November.

    He said that the yobs threatened him and his wife with a knife and smashed his head, after which broke in and stole his valuables.

    The desire for faith - for something bigger than ourselves - is a point that the book Submission makes - as does Peter Hitchens. I never thought about it much, but now I'm beginning to wonder if whites will move toward a faith or religion that demands something, that fights for its beliefs.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it's a religion of uber inclusiveness. And as always, any group that doesn't have admission criteria isn't really a group. The Left doesn't stand for anything. Diversity? What's that. The Left exists to counter old-school whites. As they decline so will the Left.

    As other groups rise and show that they don't care a whit about diversity, whites will realize that they need something, that being an "American" doesn't mean much in a multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-everything country. They'll also realize that the Left's pie-in-the-sky BS about inclusiveness is a joke and won't protect you as you walk down the street. There will be groups and you had better choose a group or form your own. At that point, many will find "religion" whether that be Islam or white identity or marrying into Conquistador America or whatever.

    But joining a group means pledging to something bigger than yourself. Religion.

    What town? I grew up nearby and am curious.
    , @S. Anonyia
    It isn't necessarily going to be the same case in regions of the U.S where the local brand of Christianity is of the born-again variety. With evangelicals religion is more of a lifestyle or personal philosophy than a set of traditions or shared cultural practices. Also somewhat true of really bland, mainline denominations like Methodists.

    If there isn't "much" grounding the local variety of Christianity, you end up with crazy people on your hands once the population starts becoming irreligious.

    This probably explains why even though weekly church attendance rates probably aren't that different in Catholic vs. Protestant Europe, Protestant Europe seems to be far more full of leftist nutcases. Also look at whites on the West Coast vs. East Coast.

    Sadly, you are incorrect. Hispanics in the USA have substantial degrees of non-European ancestry:

    The survey also found that Latinos are “18 percent Native American, 65.1 percent European and 6.2 percent African.”
     
    That's 24.2 % non European. And these data come from customers from 23andMe, so we can assume a certain level of self-sorting on the basis of income...

    In contrast, Anglo-Whites are really, really White:


    White Americans (European Americans) on average are: “98.6 percent European, 0.19 percent African and 0.18 percent Native American.”

    I'm saying that I think it's a bit of intentionally demoralizing propaganda to pretend that everyone with the last name "Gonzales" or "Fernandez" is non-white. e.g. I know a woman whose parents emigrated from Spain to Cuba and resided there for one year during which time she was born, and after which they emigrated from Cuba to the United States baby in tow.

    The Stranger

    The Stranger within my gate,
    He may be true or kind,
    But he does not talk my talk–
    I cannot feel his mind.
    I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
    But not the soul behind.

    The men of my own stock,
    They may do ill or well,
    But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
    They are used to the lies I tell;
    And we do not need interpreters
    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control–
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father’s belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf–
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    It is quite simple, but we are superficial people. I could see believing in the "proposition nation," the social contract, popular sovereignty, etc., if they were commands from God or traditions from time immemorial. But no, they were inventions of the Enlightenment, and we can more or less see them being invented. (Not actually, because they weren't dreamt up by rigorous rationality in a book, but pulled together from ideas "in the air," with some precedent; but you know what I mean.) That makes their ad hoc nature obvious.

    Praytell, what happens when the nation starts believing different propositions? Which we undeniably have, even within my lifetime. Is the nation gone with the wind, like the Old South? Believers in Propositional Nationhood don't want that (unless they completely lose control, in which case they want to be able to dissolve the nation and elect a new one).

    Ah, there's a way out of this conundrum, and one that aids in the sacred mission of Inviting the Worl. You make the propositions as simple as possible, e.g. "all men are created equal," liberty and justice for all. Then, whatever you do, you can plausibly argue you're sticking to our fundamental principles.

    If you don't know anything else about the Founding Fathers, you probably know the Declaration says "all men are created equal." That's about all Abe Lincoln needed to alter our form of government single-handedly. Who doesn't believe in liberty and justice, defined as thoroughly as I've just defined them? Which is to say not at all.

    Best part, if all it takes to be an American is belief in undefined ideas like liberty and equality, who the heck can't be American? All it takes is going through the formality of coming over and being recognized as such.

    In his mind he tore it apart. In reality, that's another thing.

    The nation was founded for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed. Congress was given the green light by the Founding Fathers as to determine who were those people. At the time, it was Europeans. Later on, it incorporated non-Europeans. The people through Congress had the liberty to include other peoples. Now, the Alt Right would counter a coalition of early 20th century immigrants, led by the Jews, intentionally destroyed the demographics of the United States because they thought it would be beneficial for their various minority groups. Do you subscribe to this line of thought?

    Would you agree that the single biggest single mistake made by the Founding Fathers was for immigrants and their descendants, ranging from the Irish to Germans to Assyrians to Vietnamese, should never have been permitted to vote? That they had little to do with creating the society they sought to join?

    The argument made by Vox Day is that the melting pot is “anti-American and anti-Christian.” From his point of view, the Constitution was meant secure the rights of Englishmen and ONLY applies to this particular group of people, since the non-English–meaning white Europeans–lack the intellectual capacity to properly comprehend its ideals. So those American citizens born in Portugal or in Romania are other than American. That would mean YOU if you are unable to track your ancestors down as being English.

    In this impending race war by 2033, is there any place for this large amount of white Americans who are the descendants of non-Anglo Europeans in the Alt-Right America? Vox Day says, “I have no idea. It’s not for me to decide where the lines will be drawn. I can only say that there is a very high probability that lines will be drawn. Precisely where, my guess is no better than anyone else’s.”

    Interesting how few of his supposed high IQ Vile Faceless Minions dare question his rationale. So, my fellow white Europeans who are not of English descent, are you on board with his position? Is he not equating that YOU are refuse, that YOU are the tired and huddled masses, that YOU should have never received voting rights, with his insistence that a select few have the right to call themselves “Americans”?

    This current round is not America's first experience with immigration. This circle was squared long ago with many generations of Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, etc. The proposition that America affords to immigrants is supposed to be a 2 way street - you accept American values and become a useful citizen and America will accept you as an American. America is much more than just the descendants of English settlers. The Constitution did not create a hereditary royalty consisting of the descendants of English settlers. This deal was and is valid, but then Leftists decided that American values (meaning dead white male values) were deplorable and should not be accepted by anyone and this spoiled the deal. If Americans themselves no longer believe the proposition, and their teachers tell them to despise racist, sexist America, then how can immigrants and their children buy into it?

    Just read an article about a town of 1,000 in Western MD. It's 97% white & Trump won the town easily. On Sunday most of the town is at the only church in town, a Lutheran church.

    Church attendance is down but it a weekly ritual for millions. Also I think we'll end up like France where folks may not go to church but are infused with Catholic sentiment.

    The desire for faith – for something bigger than ourselves – is a point that the book Submission makes – as does Peter Hitchens. I never thought about it much, but now I’m beginning to wonder if whites will move toward a faith or religion that demands something, that fights for its beliefs.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it’s a religion of uber inclusiveness. And as always, any group that doesn’t have admission criteria isn’t really a group. The Left doesn’t stand for anything. Diversity? What’s that. The Left exists to counter old-school whites. As they decline so will the Left.

    As other groups rise and show that they don’t care a whit about diversity, whites will realize that they need something, that being an “American” doesn’t mean much in a multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-everything country. They’ll also realize that the Left’s pie-in-the-sky BS about inclusiveness is a joke and won’t protect you as you walk down the street. There will be groups and you had better choose a group or form your own. At that point, many will find “religion” whether that be Islam or white identity or marrying into Conquistador America or whatever.

    But joining a group means pledging to something bigger than yourself. Religion.

    I actually used Steve's idea on my old-school liberal, i.e. blue-collar family history, wife with the women's march. Told her about the clash between the Nice White Ladies and the sisters. Then I said that she'd need to "check her privilege" from now on if she's going to stay a Dem.

    The look on face was interesting. A little pissy at me for bringing it up, but she didn't deny it, which means that she knew that to some degree that I was right.

    Btw, my wife may be a little bit of a Nice White Lady but she knows the score with blacks. Just doesn't like to talk about it. However, if blacks don't stop bring it up, she won't like it much.

    I had a discussion with my wife on the subject. What prompted it was my showing of the following to her, very on topic:

    She would rather not be confronted by the politics, and that she disagreed that every Muslim is a bad person. However, what it really came down to after a lot of discussion was that none of her friends/family think the same way that I do and that she doesn’t want to be thought of as a “terrible person” and lose her friends.

    I asked her if she had read the Koran, and responded she didn’t have the time. I asked if she remembered what the main principles of Christianity were. I think she had forgotten them too. I was expecting to hear something like “The Ten Commandments” or “The Sermon on the Mount”. The point being is that the core message from the Koran is completely different. The meek do not inherit the earth in the Koran. Instead one must wage Jihad. If that is what the average Muslim thinks is a good thing, importing people like that will be the destruction of Western civilization and our way of life. If you are going to make a statement that not every Muslim is a bad person, you should make some attempt to understand what Muslims believe.

    I mentioned Malmo in Sweden, and that Sweden used to be the model state that leftists would mention for the rest of the world to aspire to, gun control, welfare, you name it the Swedes had it and this made them a leftist utopia. And now they are the rape capital of Europe with Muslim areas as no-go zones for the police. Why don’t they kick them out? Well, it’s because most Swedes are politically correct and don’t want to be seen as “terrible people”.

    Why don’t the politicians do the right thing then? Because it takes a lot of guts, and they don’t want to be seen as literally Hitler by the media.

    I made the point that the 1968 generation had no experience with non-whites, and saw the world through a lens where it was whites who were always the instigators of negative actions towards non-whites. So they have created this world that they had not anticipated, and they are too old to adapt very well for the most part. It is up to ours and future generations to adapt to this world that our parents’ generation have created for us.

    Fascinating, discussing politics with wives. Mansplaining to your wife? Why beat her down with this stuff? Graph your sex life the next month or two, bet you're trending down. Unaware and Liberal Feminist Democrat women are at heart, ignorant about this stuff, they don't think of existential situations 40 years down the road. Look, millions of men, husbands of millions upon millions of liberal feminists, kept their traps shut, smiled sweetly at their liberal feminist wives and pulled the levers for Trump. This, because full disclosure would cost them pussy or a divorce. It was, collectively, a constructive strategy. That road, discussing opposing politics with liberal women (who are feelings-ruled morons to begin with), leads only to a life of less pussy, even less normally even, I was married to one back in DC, I know. Of course, she was a biscuit or two over 335, but THAT is another issue..

    Women are 90% "educated" and still don't know shit about the world and how it works. How would they then understand politics? Their politics are all feelings-based, every bit. What was rational about Ashley Judd last week and yet, there were the White women in their Islamic headgear cheering Ashley Judd's psychotic rant against men like Judd was the Beatles of old. THESE are the scary ones. This is because Liberal Feminists, even the marrying kind, as still psycho. Look at them. They're out there all over the streets. They're mad-cap, batshit crazy, dressing like pussies on the one hand, Muslims on the other. How does anyone reconcile any of this? Ye Gawds..

    If these women knew their husbands cancelled their feminist vote for Hillary with a man-vote for Trump, they'd geld the poor bastard, even assuming they haven't been in the virtual sense just being married to them. And there some of you are, ministering to your wives about the political dangers of the world. Again, fascinating..

    Not quite. Politicians are in bed with Muslims (sometimes literally) and both hate and fear their countrymen, in particular the little people, at any rate.
    They figure by the time Muslims take over, if ever, they'll be long dead by then, so they don't care. "Apres moi, le deluge". Politicians just want to hold on to their sinecures and their power, however limited.

    I'm not saying this isn't a problem for continuing The United States in some semblance of the way we knew it, but I'm guessing that a large proportion of the "Hispanic" population is criollo - primarily Spanish or Portuguese descended with only a negligible admixture of Amerindian blood. The white proportion has no doubt been declining due to border jumping of the peasant classes of Mexico and Central America, but I don't think things are as bad (which is to say, utterly irreversible) as our adversaries would have us believe.

    but I’m guessing that a large proportion of the “Hispanic” population is criollo – primarily Spanish or Portuguese descended with only a negligible admixture of Amerindian blood.

    Sadly, you are incorrect. Hispanics in the USA have substantial degrees of non-European ancestry:

    The survey also found that Latinos are “18 percent Native American, 65.1 percent European and 6.2 percent African.”

    That’s 24.2 % non European. And these data come from customers from 23andMe, so we can assume a certain level of self-sorting on the basis of income…

    In contrast, Anglo-Whites are really, really White:

    White Americans (European Americans) on average are: “98.6 percent European, 0.19 percent African and 0.18 percent Native American.”

    The ostensible message seems to be that football needs to keep progressing towards the current year, but is there some kind of triple bankshot going on here? If I wanted to improve the reputation of the NFL among deplorables there are worse ways to do it than complaining about how conservative the sport is. I could actually see both messages coexisting effectively given that one target group reflexively believes the MSM while the other tends to believe the opposite.

    An Extract from the Wisdom of Enoch Powell:

    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature.
    One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense of the future.
    Above all, people are disposed to mistake predicting troubles for causing troubles and even for desiring troubles: "If only," they love to think, "if only people wouldn't talk about it, it probably wouldn't happen."
    Perhaps this habit goes back to the primitive belief that the word and the thing, the name and the object, are identical.
    At all events, the discussion of future grave but, with effort now, avoidable evils is the most unpopular and at the same time the most necessary occupation for the politician. Those who knowingly shirk it deserve, and not infrequently receive, the curses of those who come after.

    The Stranger

    The Stranger within my gate,
    He may be true or kind,
    But he does not talk my talk--
    I cannot feel his mind.
    I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
    But not the soul behind.

    The men of my own stock,
    They may do ill or well,
    But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
    They are used to the lies I tell;
    And we do not need interpreters
    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control--
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father's belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf--
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    One drop of blood drawn from thy country’s bosom
    Should grieve thee more than streams of foreign gore.

    See, then, thou fight’st against thy countrymen
    And joint’st with them will be thy slaughtermen.

Her kids by an Anglo Episcopalian are officially "Hispanic."

    Just read an article about a town of 1,000 in Western MD. It's 97% white & Trump won the town easily. On Sunday most of the town is at the only church in town, a Lutheran church.

    Church attendance is down but it a weekly ritual for millions. Also I think we'll end up like France where folks may not go to church but are infused with Catholic sentiment.

    It isn’t necessarily going to be the same case in regions of the U.S where the local brand of Christianity is of the born-again variety. With evangelicals religion is more of a lifestyle or personal philosophy than a set of traditions or shared cultural practices. Also somewhat true of really bland, mainline denominations like Methodists.

    If there isn’t “much” grounding the local variety of Christianity, you end up with crazy people on your hands once the population starts becoming irreligious.

    This probably explains why even though weekly church attendance rates probably aren’t that different in Catholic vs. Protestant Europe, Protestant Europe seems to be far more full of leftist nutcases. Also look at whites on the West Coast vs. East Coast.

    GANGS of North African youths have terrified Chinese migrants amid complaints they have become 'too rich'.

    The streets of Paris have erupted into inter-migrant strife as North African youths have targeted 'rich' Chinese migrants amid growing tensions.

    Police in France recorded more than 200 attacks on Chinese immigrants last year, mostly from hostile migrant gangs.

    This comes amid a growing perception that recent migrants from North Africa have become "too demanding" and consider themselves "victims" who deserve pity.

    Contrary to this, the long-standing Chinese community in Paris has gained a reputation for being "hard-working and managing without taxpayer help".

    In a report from German channel DW, a Chinese migrant named Woo described how a gang of North African youths attacked him in his home last November.

    He said that the yobs threatened him and his wife with a knife and smashed his head, after which broke in and stole his valuables.

    He added: "I am scared. I don’t feel safe anymore."

    Given all the mess caused in the Middle East and North Africa by American foreign policy(dictated by Zionists & Wars for Israel, Energy companies & control of markets, and Military-Industrial-Complex & addiction to superpower arrogance), you'd think the main message from Muslims would be LEAVE US ALONE and INFIDEL YANKEE GO HOME!!!
    Instead, the main message is LET US IN FOR A SLICE OF THE AMERICAN PIE!!

    Instead of Moral Outrage over America's neo-imperialist horror-show in the Middle East and North Africa, all the bitter rhetoric is about America not being 'welcoming' enough to more Muslims. Given the decadent state of American Culture, why would any self-respecting Muslim even want to come to the US?
    And if Muslims are self-respecting, why aren't they sufficiently angry about American meddling and invasions of the Middle East?

    In the end, Muslims can't stand one another and figure even infidel America treats them better than they do one another. And they figure the infidel West offers more comfort and convenience than the Muslim world does.
    So, their main moral fixation is about America-letting-them-in than a sincere effort to defend their realm from the infidel.
    Besides, if the Muslim World wasn't so divided, the US wouldn't be able to play divide-and-conquer and form alliances to mess up the whole region.

    In the end, Muslims want more cookies in America than falafel in the Middle East. And they'll give up identity, history, faith, and principles for more cookies.

    A truly self-respecting Muslim would first say DON'T INVADE US before PLEASE INVITE US. But it seems they sense that the Right of Invasion/Intervention by the US is their ticket to Invitation to the West.

    The place was “messed up” before we came; it will be “messed up” when we are gone.

    The desire for faith - for something bigger than ourselves - is a point that the book Submission makes - as does Peter Hitchens. I never thought about it much, but now I'm beginning to wonder if whites will move toward a faith or religion that demands something, that fights for its beliefs.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it's a religion of uber inclusiveness. And as always, any group that doesn't have admission criteria isn't really a group. The Left doesn't stand for anything. Diversity? What's that. The Left exists to counter old-school whites. As they decline so will the Left.

    As other groups rise and show that they don't care a whit about diversity, whites will realize that they need something, that being an "American" doesn't mean much in a multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-everything country. They'll also realize that the Left's pie-in-the-sky BS about inclusiveness is a joke and won't protect you as you walk down the street. There will be groups and you had better choose a group or form your own. At that point, many will find "religion" whether that be Islam or white identity or marrying into Conquistador America or whatever.

    But joining a group means pledging to something bigger than yourself. Religion.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it’s a religion of uber inclusiveness.

    You got me there. But then, I'm a straight white guy.

    In the end, however, the Left stands for opposing - and stealing from - normal white guys (and, to some extent, normal white women). That's it. The Left offers nothing else. It's really an empty ideology.

    Everything else that it stands for - abortion, welfare state, enforced equality - are contradictory to its diversity uber alles. Muslims won't stand for abortion. Unfettered immigration destroys the welfare state. The various groups making up the Left will not stand for sharing the pie equally.

    The Left will die as whites fade. It's already happening. Blacks and other groups already are demanding the higher jobs in the party. White men and women are being pushed aside, at least in public roles. In DC, minorities are bitching that Dem staffs on the Hill aren't diverse. They will demand quotas.

    The Dem Party is on its way to being the Anti-White (all whites) Party. Only the most zealot whites will not notice this. I'd suspect that younger whites will notice better than older liberals.

    The Dem whites thought that they could run the party like a plantation. A few whites controlling a large number of browns with a few nice house ni$$ers allowed in the mansion. But those whites never employed big, strong men with guns to keep the order and now the uprisings are starting.

    The only question is whether the Jews can use their money, organization and influence to hold the party together by buying off or threatening the brown leaders. It'll be tough, but Jews are remarkably capable so it's anyone's game. But each year it will get harder to hold those groups together while keeping whites running the show. Frankly, blacks are just too stupid to realize that they can't run things and are better off letting whites do it, which means that they'll keep pushing for more.

    Hopefully, this trend will also be followed by other countries also becoming sovereign.

    Germany, France, etc. They were just following the diktat of Globalism and trying to imitate the U.S.

    But if the U.S. goes towards nationalism, there's hope they will go nationalist too. At least, it's to be hoped. Then it's endgame for globonazis.

    The place was "messed up" before we came; it will be "messed up" when we are gone.

    Muslims are fine with their countries; what you see as "messed up", they see as strong and able to send people out to conquer the world. Not too many of them come here to live as Americans; they come here to live as Muslims and bless us with their religion.

    “Not too many of them come here to live as Americans; they come here to live as Muslims and bless us with their religion.”

    If flying a plane into a skyscraper and shooting up a nightclub is their way of blessing us, what do they consider as punishing us? Playing their awful Arabic music on full blast?

    And William F. Buckley, Jr., the original @DemsRRealRacist.

    Alberto Fujimori, Raquel Welch,Cameron Diaz, Sammy Sosa, and Jennifer Lopez

    And William F. Buckley, Jr.,

    Really? That seems odd, given Buckley’s ancestry:

    Birth Name: William Francis Buckley

    Date of Birth: November 24, 1925

    Place of Birth: New York City, New York, U.S.

    Date of Death: February 27, 2008

    Place of Death: Stamford, Connecticut

    Ethnicity:
    *Irish (father)
    *Swiss-German, German, Irish (mother)

    William was the son of Aloise Josephine Antonia (Steiner) and William Frank Buckley, Sr., who was a lawyer and oil developer. William’s father was born in Washington-on-the-Brazos, Texas, to Canadian parents, of Irish descent. William’s mother was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, of Swiss-German, German, and Irish descent. William was a devout Catholic.

    William’s paternal grandparents were John C. Buckley (the son of John Buckley and Ellen Doran) and Mary Ann Langford (the daughter of Charles William Langford and Hannah P. Lane). William’s grandparents John and Mary were both from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and all of their own parents were Irish. Hannah was the daughter of Edmund Lane and Johanna.

    William’s maternal grandfather was Louis Aloysius Steiner (the son of Josef Alois Christian Steiner and Barbara Rohrbacher). Louis was born in Louisiana, to German and Swiss-German parents. Josef was the son of Josef Alois Steiner and Maria Francisca Christina Steiner.

    William’s maternal grandmother was Marie Louise Wassem (the daughter of George Henry Wassem and Mary Ann Lee). William’s grandmother Marie Louise was born in Louisiana. George was German, from Prussia, the son of John Henry Wassem. William’s great-grandmother Mary Ann’s parents were Irish.

    Vox Day has done a great job of ripping apart the idea of a proposition nation. It's quite simple: if we are truly a proposition nation, those who do not agree with the proposition must be stripped of citizenship.

    It is quite simple, but we are superficial people. I could see believing in the “proposition nation,” the social contract, popular sovereignty, etc., if they were commands from God or traditions from time immemorial. But no, they were inventions of the Enlightenment, and we can more or less see them being invented. (Not actually, because they weren’t dreamt up by rigorous rationality in a book, but pulled together from ideas “in the air,” with some precedent; but you know what I mean.) That makes their ad hoc nature obvious.

    Praytell, what happens when the nation starts believing different propositions? Which we undeniably have, even within my lifetime. Is the nation gone with the wind, like the Old South? Believers in Propositional Nationhood don’t want that (unless they completely lose control, in which case they want to be able to dissolve the nation and elect a new one).

    Ah, there’s a way out of this conundrum, and one that aids in the sacred mission of Inviting the Worl. You make the propositions as simple as possible, e.g. “all men are created equal,” liberty and justice for all. Then, whatever you do, you can plausibly argue you’re sticking to our fundamental principles.

    If you don’t know anything else about the Founding Fathers, you probably know the Declaration says “all men are created equal.” That’s about all Abe Lincoln needed to alter our form of government single-handedly. Who doesn’t believe in liberty and justice, defined as thoroughly as I’ve just defined them? Which is to say not at all.

    Best part, if all it takes to be an American is belief in undefined ideas like liberty and equality, who the heck can’t be American? All it takes is going through the formality of coming over and being recognized as such.

    The desire for faith - for something bigger than ourselves - is a point that the book Submission makes - as does Peter Hitchens. I never thought about it much, but now I'm beginning to wonder if whites will move toward a faith or religion that demands something, that fights for its beliefs.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it's a religion of uber inclusiveness. And as always, any group that doesn't have admission criteria isn't really a group. The Left doesn't stand for anything. Diversity? What's that. The Left exists to counter old-school whites. As they decline so will the Left.

    As other groups rise and show that they don't care a whit about diversity, whites will realize that they need something, that being an "American" doesn't mean much in a multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-everything country. They'll also realize that the Left's pie-in-the-sky BS about inclusiveness is a joke and won't protect you as you walk down the street. There will be groups and you had better choose a group or form your own. At that point, many will find "religion" whether that be Islam or white identity or marrying into Conquistador America or whatever.

    But joining a group means pledging to something bigger than yourself. Religion.

    There was a pretty good Politico magazine story about Trump’s effect on young white men during the campaign. Many admitted that his unapologetic confidence awaken something in them. Several said it pulled them out of depression.

    You must've seen this linked today on the DrudgeReport:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/759995/North-African-youth-gangs-Chinese-migrants-Paris

    GANGS of North African youths have terrified Chinese migrants amid complaints they have become 'too rich'.

    The streets of Paris have erupted into inter-migrant strife as North African youths have targeted 'rich' Chinese migrants amid growing tensions.

    Police in France recorded more than 200 attacks on Chinese immigrants last year, mostly from hostile migrant gangs.

    This comes amid a growing perception that recent migrants from North Africa have become "too demanding" and consider themselves "victims" who deserve pity.

    Contrary to this, the long-standing Chinese community in Paris has gained a reputation for being "hard-working and managing without taxpayer help".

    In a report from German channel DW, a Chinese migrant named Woo described how a gang of North African youths attacked him in his home last November.

    He said that the yobs threatened him and his wife with a knife and smashed his head, after which broke in and stole his valuables.

    He added: "I am scared. I don’t feel safe anymore."
     

    In this country, and in Canada, the yellows are standing with the blacks and browns against the larger white culture. Good luck with that. I'm sure the blacks and browns will admire your qualities, talents, and culture like whites have. And I'm sure when whites are pushed off the stage Asians and Jews will really start to thrive.

    How did you reach that conclusion from reading the article? Barring white-passing Latinos. Asians are likely the most sympathetic group towards whites, a little too much so IMO.

    It’s unlikely for any minority to completely side with the majority except under very unique circumstances. If anything there is a slow shift away from SJWism within the Asian community, as more and more young Asians are perceiving it as excessive, as well as a newfound nationalist pride in our home countries.

    Asian-Americans are obviously not going to go alt-right, but our own sense of nationalism will eventually put us in conflict with the ideas of the liberal left. It’s just a matter of time, and preparation.

  98. I think the “government official” in question might have been Stephen Miller. I saw him being interviewed on Tucker Carlson’s show last night, and he was saying the same thing. It might have actually come from that interview.

    Hearing Miller speak made a remarkable contrast with the kind of person who held that kind of job in the Obama administration or the Bush administration. He was direct, intelligent, logical, and unapologetic in defence of this administration’s policies. It was incredibly heartening and refreshing to see.

    I don’t know about the US, but in the EU, could this welcoming of Muslims be a subconscious way for Europeans to be finally cleansed of Holocaust guilt and challenge Jewish Power? Europeans feel they have lost the moral right to be anti-Jewish, but they feel that Muslims are justified in hating Jews because of Palestine and Nakba and Occupation.
    So, if Europeans make common cause with Muslims(who don’t have the guilt of Holocaust and imperialism), the result will be a Muslim-geared EU that can stand up to Jewish Power.

    Jews have a different reason for welcoming Muslims to EU. Divide and rule by diversifying the goyim. But what if whites make common cause with Muslims, as is happening with Muslims and white progs in UK? Because Muslims can pose as victims of Zionists, whites can attack Jewish Power behind the Muslim shield. As white progs are opposed to ‘antisemitism’, they cannot be doing this consciously. But maybe they are subconscious ‘antisemites’ who find Muslims very useful.

  102. As always. Moldbug.

    For example, dear progressive, why is racism wrong? Racism is wrong because all humans are born simply as humans, having done nothing right or wrong, and it is incompatible with our deeply-held ethical principles to mark these newborn babies with indelible labels which assign them either privileges or penalties which they have not earned. Such as the privilege of being able to drink at sparkling-clean water fountains marked “Whites Only,” or the penalty of having to go out back to the horse trough.

    We hit that one out of the park, didn’t we? Okay. So why is it ethical to label newborn babies as “American” or “Mexican,” due to nothing but the descent and geographical position at birth of their parents, and give the former a cornucopia of benefits from which the latter is barred – such as the right to live, work, and drink from drinking fountains in the continental United States? What makes Washington think it is somehow ethical to establish two classes of human, “Americans” and “Mexicans,” based only on coincidences of birth that are just as arbitrary as “black” versus “white,” and treat the two completely differently? How does this differ from racism, Southern style?

    There is a very easy resolution to this problem: adopt the principle that no person is illegal. This rule is perfectly consistent with “applied Christianity.” It is taught at all our great universities. It is implied every time a journalist deploys the euphemism “undocumented.” And I’m sure there are dozens of ways in which it could be incorporated into our great Living Constitution. There is only one problem: the people are not quite ready for it.

    I used to make a chocolate-coffee black beer whose wort got freeze-distilled outside on the balcony. G0t it up to the 20+% ABV range at 20 below. Northern Brewer, Olympic, or Glacier for bittering, Cascade and Willamette for finishing. Or whatever was on hand.

    The water supply in that city was high in lime, which offset the acids in the roasted malt portion of the grain bill. Champagne yeast punched through the high gravity. There'd be vigorous arguments about what it was--barley wine, Baltic porter, imperial stout--but I never knew or cared.

    Point being, it got to the point where it was as easy as throwing a lamb leg on the grill. I brewed more often, only a gallon to three/four at a time. Anything I didn't like would make friends happy.

    Though there was that time my "Russian barley wine" was too sweet for my taste, and three friends got in a shouting match over who got how many bottles. Gave me a whole new perspective on Russian history, though they were Irish guys, and that batch's 22% was no doubt a contributor.

    The survey also found that Latinos are “18 percent Native American, 65.1 percent European and 6.2 percent African.”

    I guess Budweiser hasn't learned that taunting your core market isn't good for business. Has the NFL figured that out from Colin Kaepernick yet?

    Dude, I love football and played all my life through college. It was something I really enjoyed to play and to watch.

    Now, I cannot watch it anymore. The grandstanding and moral posturing of some of the most privileged people in our society is disgusting. Their white-hating and America-bashing has really pissed me off too. I don’t think I will even watch the Super Bowl.

    Beer ads aimed at Muslims and white wine sipping libs - now there's a brilliant marketing move.

    It would be interesting to correlate Budweiser sales with political affiliation. I get the feeling that deplorables drink a lot more Bud than non-deplorables.

    When I was 18 I worked in a liquor store (in NJ you had to buy beer in a licensed liquor store). I found that the customers adhered to the 80/20 rule = for almost any product, 80% of sales are made to the most loyal 20% of your customer base. Let's say we had some VERY regular customers.

    I've seen snippets of the ads - the premise is to show (not very realistically) the immigrant young Adolphus Busch making plans for his brewery. Because 19th century German immigrants are JUST like Muslim immigrants today.

    —President Donald Trump, inauguration speech.

    This is what I always understood to be the meaning of the Statue of Liberty, properly called Liberty Enlightening the World. The clue being in the name.

    Instead of grasping in her hand thunderbolts of terror and of death, she holds aloft the light which illumines the way to man’s enfranchisement.

    —President Cleveland, inauguration of The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World.

    It’s a pity ‘way’ here is used, as it could be interpreted as other than meaning ‘method.’

    Later Cleveland says,

    …a stream of light shall pierce the darkness of ignorance and man’s oppression, until liberty enlightens the world.

    In his commemorative address, at the inauguration of Liberty Enlightening the World, The Hon. Chauncey M. Depew rebuked neocons thus:

    The marvelous development and progress of this republic are due to the fact that, in rigidly adhering to the advice of Washington for absolute neutrality and non-interference in the politics and policies of other governments, we have avoided the necessity of depleting our industries to feed our armies, of taxing and impoverishing our resources to carry on war, and of limiting our liberties to concentrate power in our government.

    However he did also say:

    The rays from this beacon, lighting this gateway to the continent, will welcome the poor and the persecuted with the hope and promise of homes and citizenship. It will teach them that there are room and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development

    The immigration sentiment was there form the beginning, but he then added:

    but that those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

    I don't like gypsies except that they can make some great high spirited music. But there cannot be more than ten million gypsies on this planet. Muslims are worse because there are 1.5 billion of these absurd 5x daily head bumpers. Islam calls non-Muslim nations Dar al Harb, meaning The House Of War, meaning these nations and territories are up for grabs and that Islam has Allah's sanction to make war on them overtly or covertly via immigration and demographics.
    Islam calls the collective of Muslim nations Dar al Salam, meaning House of Peace. The peace of Allah, Mullahs, Imams, a false prophet and the robotic, self-brainwashing, 5x daily head bumping.

    Sure there are peaceful Muslims, who will only pick out the peaceful Koran verses to recite to the gullible Westerners. The peaceful Muslims in Western nations are the oceans that the radical fundamentalists swim in undetected. The radical fundamentalists could not survive in civilized nations without the mass of peaceful Muslim immigrants being there to disappear into. The radical fundamentalist Muslims can recite valid Koran verses that sanction their wars on non-Muslims and other Muslims as in the eternal Sunni vs Shiite wars.

    That is somewhat untrue. There are plenty of Muslims in name only who are decent, hardworking people that add value to America. However, it’s tough to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    There are certainly plenty of Muslims--even devout ones--who are decent hardworking people. I know two muslim guys--both good guys. But they do not "add value" to America. They subtract value merely by being muslim, adding diversity, chafing at America's Western orientation, making it less a part of Western Civilization.

    Diversity is generally bad, and it takes a non-Western person of reasonable talent, to rise above that and be a net positive--actually add value--to America. I know several of those. But Islam is a hostile anti-Western force. The character of the West in fact forged in continual opposition, continual conflict with Islam. There is such incredible value in *not* having muslims around, in having a nation that is free from the conflict and contention that muslims always bring to the West (or to any other civilization they rub up against) that it is essentially impossible for any muslim to "add value" to a Western nation.

    Fascinating, discussing politics with wives. Mansplaining to your wife? Why beat her down with this stuff? Graph your sex life the next month or two, bet you’re trending down. Unaware and Liberal Feminist Democrat women are at heart, ignorant about this stuff, they don’t think of existential situations 40 years down the road. Look, millions of men, husbands of millions upon millions of liberal feminists, kept their traps shut, smiled sweetly at their liberal feminist wives and pulled the levers for Trump. This, because full disclosure would cost them pussy or a divorce. It was, collectively, a constructive strategy. That road, discussing opposing politics with liberal women (who are feelings-ruled morons to begin with), leads only to a life of less pussy, even less normally even, I was married to one back in DC, I know. Of course, she was a biscuit or two over 335, but THAT is another issue..

    Women are 90% “educated” and still don’t know shit about the world and how it works. How would they then understand politics? Their politics are all feelings-based, every bit. What was rational about Ashley Judd last week and yet, there were the White women in their Islamic headgear cheering Ashley Judd’s psychotic rant against men like Judd was the Beatles of old. THESE are the scary ones. This is because Liberal Feminists, even the marrying kind, as still psycho. Look at them. They’re out there all over the streets. They’re mad-cap, batshit crazy, dressing like pussies on the one hand, Muslims on the other. How does anyone reconcile any of this? Ye Gawds..

    If these women knew their husbands cancelled their feminist vote for Hillary with a man-vote for Trump, they’d geld the poor bastard, even assuming they haven’t been in the virtual sense just being married to them. And there some of you are, ministering to your wives about the political dangers of the world. Again, fascinating..

    In fact, no devout Muslim would ever choose to live amongst the kuffar.
    By living amongst the kuffar, he is, by definition subjecting himself to rule by kuffar and is paying taxes to uphold the kuffar.
    If it so happens that the 'king' of the kuffar happens to declare war and enmity against the ummah - as happened with Tony Blair in 2003 - not only is Muslim legally obliged by kuffar law to participate in war against the ummah, his tax money and hard work is used against the ummah.
    It is a fundamental contradiction that forces faithful Muslims never to live in kuffar nations under kuffar kings. It is reasonable to call devout Muslims who voluntarily choose to live under the kuffar - for purely financial reasons - hypocrites.

    "What’s interesting is that while there have always been a handful of Muslims in the US, until recently there was never any mass immigration."

    The first wave of Muslims were African slaves, of whom 10 to 15 percent were practicing members of the Islamic faith. But their slave masters forced them to convert to Christianity.
    Any effort to embrace Islam was conducted in secret. From 1878 to 1924, Muslim immigrants from the Middle East, particularly from Syria and Lebanon, arrived in large numbers, with many settling in Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and even the Dakotas. Like most other migrants they were seeking greater economic opportunity than in their homeland and often worked as manual laborers.

    “Not too many of them come here to live as Americans; they come here to live as Muslims and bless us with their religion.”

    That’s a False News Story. Get your facts straight.

    What's interesting is that while there have always been a handful of Muslims in the US, until recently there was never any mass immigration. The earlier Middle Eastern immigration was mostly Christians (Maronites, Armenians) not Muslims. They could have come in the pre-'24 era but they didn't. I think they understood that, as you say, Islam is a complete civilization and way of life that's not really compatible with life in the West. It certainly wasn't in pre-PC days when Americans would not have put up with multiple wives and other Muslim nonsense.

    “What’s interesting is that while there have always been a handful of Muslims in the US, until recently there was never any mass immigration.”

    The first wave of Muslims were African slaves, of whom 10 to 15 percent were practicing members of the Islamic faith. But their slave masters forced them to convert to Christianity.
    Any effort to embrace Islam was conducted in secret. From 1878 to 1924, Muslim immigrants from the Middle East, particularly from Syria and Lebanon, arrived in large numbers, with many settling in Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and even the Dakotas. Like most other migrants they were seeking greater economic opportunity than in their homeland and often worked as manual laborers.

    That is somewhat untrue. There are plenty of Muslims in name only who are decent, hardworking people that add value to America.
     
    Disagree.

    There are certainly plenty of Muslims--even devout ones--who are decent hardworking people. I know two muslim guys--both good guys. But they do not "add value" to America. They subtract value merely by being muslim, adding diversity, chafing at America's Western orientation, making it less a part of Western Civilization.

    Diversity is generally bad, and it takes a non-Western person of reasonable talent, to rise above that and be a net positive--actually add value--to America. I know several of those. But Islam is a hostile anti-Western force. The character of the West in fact forged in continual opposition, continual conflict with Islam. There is such incredible value in *not* having muslims around, in having a nation that is free from the conflict and contention that muslims always bring to the West (or to any other civilization they rub up against) that it is essentially impossible for any muslim to "add value" to a Western nation.

    Muslims are--by defintion--members of Muslim civilization and that's where they belong ... in their own civilization.

    In fact, no devout Muslim would ever choose to live amongst the kuffar.
    By living amongst the kuffar, he is, by definition subjecting himself to rule by kuffar and is paying taxes to uphold the kuffar.
    If it so happens that the ‘king’ of the kuffar happens to declare war and enmity against the ummah – as happened with Tony Blair in 2003 – not only is Muslim legally obliged by kuffar law to participate in war against the ummah, his tax money and hard work is used against the ummah.
    It is a fundamental contradiction that forces faithful Muslims never to live in kuffar nations under kuffar kings. It is reasonable to call devout Muslims who voluntarily choose to live under the kuffar – for purely financial reasons – hypocrites.

    “Vox Day has done a great job of ripping apart the idea of a proposition nation. It’s quite simple: if we are truly a proposition nation, those who do not agree with the proposition must be stripped of citizenship.”

    In his mind he tore it apart. In reality, that’s another thing.

    The nation was founded for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed. Congress was given the green light by the Founding Fathers as to determine who were those people. At the time, it was Europeans. Later on, it incorporated non-Europeans. The people through Congress had the liberty to include other peoples. Now, the Alt Right would counter a coalition of early 20th century immigrants, led by the Jews, intentionally destroyed the demographics of the United States because they thought it would be beneficial for their various minority groups. Do you subscribe to this line of thought?

    Would you agree that the single biggest single mistake made by the Founding Fathers was for immigrants and their descendants, ranging from the Irish to Germans to Assyrians to Vietnamese, should never have been permitted to vote? That they had little to do with creating the society they sought to join?

    The argument made by Vox Day is that the melting pot is “anti-American and anti-Christian.” From his point of view, the Constitution was meant secure the rights of Englishmen and ONLY applies to this particular group of people, since the non-English–meaning white Europeans–lack the intellectual capacity to properly comprehend its ideals. So those American citizens born in Portugal or in Romania are other than American. That would mean YOU if you are unable to track your ancestors down as being English.

    In this impending race war by 2033, is there any place for this large amount of white Americans who are the descendants of non-Anglo Europeans in the Alt-Right America? Vox Day says, “I have no idea. It’s not for me to decide where the lines will be drawn. I can only say that there is a very high probability that lines will be drawn. Precisely where, my guess is no better than anyone else’s.”

    Interesting how few of his supposed high IQ Vile Faceless Minions dare question his rationale. So, my fellow white Europeans who are not of English descent, are you on board with his position? Is he not equating that YOU are refuse, that YOU are the tired and huddled masses, that YOU should have never received voting rights, with his insistence that a select few have the right to call themselves “Americans”?

    This current round is not America’s first experience with immigration. This circle was squared long ago with many generations of Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, etc. The proposition that America affords to immigrants is supposed to be a 2 way street – you accept American values and become a useful citizen and America will accept you as an American. America is much more than just the descendants of English settlers. The Constitution did not create a hereditary royalty consisting of the descendants of English settlers. This deal was and is valid, but then Leftists decided that American values (meaning dead white male values) were deplorable and should not be accepted by anyone and this spoiled the deal. If Americans themselves no longer believe the proposition, and their teachers tell them to despise racist, sexist America, then how can immigrants and their children buy into it?

    Trump should quote the 'Father of Pakistan' Jinnah, who persuaded the British that an India containing a large Muslim population would inevitably fall apart.

    "In a 1940 Muslim League conference in Lahore in 1940, Jinnah said: "Hindus and the Muslims belong to two different religions, philosophies, social customs and literature.... It is quite clear that Hindus and Muslims derive their inspiration from different sources of history. They have different epics, different heroes and different episodes.... To yoke together two such nations under a single state, one as a numerical minority and the other as a majority, must lead to growing discontent and final destruction of any fabric that may be so built up for the government of such a state."
     

    Muslims believe that even as they carve their way in to the West.

    Beer ads aimed at Muslims and white wine sipping libs - now there's a brilliant marketing move.

    It would be interesting to correlate Budweiser sales with political affiliation. I get the feeling that deplorables drink a lot more Bud than non-deplorables.

    When I was 18 I worked in a liquor store (in NJ you had to buy beer in a licensed liquor store). I found that the customers adhered to the 80/20 rule = for almost any product, 80% of sales are made to the most loyal 20% of your customer base. Let's say we had some VERY regular customers.

    I've seen snippets of the ads - the premise is to show (not very realistically) the immigrant young Adolphus Busch making plans for his brewery. Because 19th century German immigrants are JUST like Muslim immigrants today.

    As always. Moldbug.

    For example, dear progressive, why is racism wrong? Racism is wrong because all humans are born simply as humans, having done nothing right or wrong, and it is incompatible with our deeply-held ethical principles to mark these newborn babies with indelible labels which assign them either privileges or penalties which they have not earned. Such as the privilege of being able to drink at sparkling-clean water fountains marked "Whites Only," or the penalty of having to go out back to the horse trough.

    We hit that one out of the park, didn't we? Okay. So why is it ethical to label newborn babies as "American" or "Mexican," due to nothing but the descent and geographical position at birth of their parents, and give the former a cornucopia of benefits from which the latter is barred - such as the right to live, work, and drink from drinking fountains in the continental United States? What makes Washington think it is somehow ethical to establish two classes of human, "Americans" and "Mexicans," based only on coincidences of birth that are just as arbitrary as "black" versus "white," and treat the two completely differently? How does this differ from racism, Southern style?
    ...
    There is a very easy resolution to this problem: adopt the principle that no person is illegal. This rule is perfectly consistent with "applied Christianity." It is taught at all our great universities. It is implied every time a journalist deploys the euphemism "undocumented." And I'm sure there are dozens of ways in which it could be incorporated into our great Living Constitution. There is only one problem: the people are not quite ready for it.

    Obviously, the Left is a religion, but it’s a religion of uber inclusiveness.
     
    That's a silly statement. They'd never include you or me in a million years.

    You got me there. But then, I’m a straight white guy.

    In the end, however, the Left stands for opposing – and stealing from – normal white guys (and, to some extent, normal white women). That’s it. The Left offers nothing else. It’s really an empty ideology.

    Everything else that it stands for – abortion, welfare state, enforced equality – are contradictory to its diversity uber alles. Muslims won’t stand for abortion. Unfettered immigration destroys the welfare state. The various groups making up the Left will not stand for sharing the pie equally.

    The Left will die as whites fade. It’s already happening. Blacks and other groups already are demanding the higher jobs in the party. White men and women are being pushed aside, at least in public roles. In DC, minorities are bitching that Dem staffs on the Hill aren’t diverse. They will demand quotas.

    The Dem Party is on its way to being the Anti-White (all whites) Party. Only the most zealot whites will not notice this. I’d suspect that younger whites will notice better than older liberals.

    The Dem whites thought that they could run the party like a plantation. A few whites controlling a large number of browns with a few nice house ni$$ers allowed in the mansion. But those whites never employed big, strong men with guns to keep the order and now the uprisings are starting.

    The only question is whether the Jews can use their money, organization and influence to hold the party together by buying off or threatening the brown leaders. It’ll be tough, but Jews are remarkably capable so it’s anyone’s game. But each year it will get harder to hold those groups together while keeping whites running the show. Frankly, blacks are just too stupid to realize that they can’t run things and are better off letting whites do it, which means that they’ll keep pushing for more.

The white proportion has no doubt been declining due to border jumping of the peasant classes of Mexico and Central America, but I don't think things are as bad (which is to say, utterly irreversible) as our adversaries would have us believe.

    Technically yes. The real conflict is Semites vs. Europeans. The fellow-Semite kindred feeling is becoming more and more obvious as time goes on. They look similar, and think similarly (Judaism, Marxism, Islam are all conquering totalitarian semitic thought systems) because they are essentially the same people. The ongoing tribal conflict in the Middle East with Israel vs. moslems might have some people confused, but that is a brothers' war.

    Sigmund Freud (Ashkenazi jew, Semite) adored and admired Hannibal (Phoenician/Carthaginian, Semite) because he 'took it to Rome' like Freud himself was trying to do, i.e. the Catholic Church, i.e. Europe, i.e. White people (towheads as Freud called them. Even the love/hate thing in regard to blonde hair is shared and eternal).

    But the jews and their Semitism are in White people's heads thanks to Christianity so I strongly doubt they will ever understand and be able to do anything about it.

    , @lavoisier
    In the sense of the word Gentile as used by Jewish people you are right--all non-believers are considered to be Gentiles by Jewish people.

    However, Muslims would not consider themselves to be Gentiles and have also used the term Gentile to describe the non-believer as well. In fact, the term can be found in the Quran.

    So basically the term cannot really be applied to the Muslim correctly unless you feel comfortable applying a term to a group of people who would not accept that term as valid and use it themselves to describe the non-believer in THEIR faith.

    I don't know about the US, but in the EU, could this welcoming of Muslims be a subconscious way for Europeans to be finally cleansed of Holocaust guilt and challenge Jewish Power? Europeans feel they have lost the moral right to be anti-Jewish, but they feel that Muslims are justified in hating Jews because of Palestine and Nakba and Occupation.
    So, if Europeans make common cause with Muslims(who don't have the guilt of Holocaust and imperialism), the result will be a Muslim-geared EU that can stand up to Jewish Power.

    Jews have a different reason for welcoming Muslims to EU. Divide and rule by diversifying the goyim. But what if whites make common cause with Muslims, as is happening with Muslims and white progs in UK? Because Muslims can pose as victims of Zionists, whites can attack Jewish Power behind the Muslim shield. As white progs are opposed to 'antisemitism', they cannot be doing this consciously. But maybe they are subconscious 'antisemites' who find Muslims very useful.

    The multi-generational effects of migration do need to be addressed. If we hadn’t admitted German Friedrich Trump and his wife back in the 1800′s, we wouldn’t have gotten their authoritarian grandson as president.

    What's a shame is that Americans drink that swill. Give me Miller High Life any time over that Bud crap.

    OK, I'm boycotting all of these beers now, even though I never saw the commercial because I've been boycotting TV. I would switch to Guiness, but then there's U2 (is that spelled right, Mr. Derbyshire?).

    Make your own. Ale is easy, especially with today’s beer kits.

    Master it and the move to black beers comes naturally.

    I used to make a chocolate-coffee black beer whose wort got freeze-distilled outside on the balcony. G0t it up to the 20+% ABV range at 20 below. Northern Brewer, Olympic, or Glacier for bittering, Cascade and Willamette for finishing. Or whatever was on hand.

    The water supply in that city was high in lime, which offset the acids in the roasted malt portion of the grain bill. Champagne yeast punched through the high gravity. There’d be vigorous arguments about what it was–barley wine, Baltic porter, imperial stout–but I never knew or cared.

    Point being, it got to the point where it was as easy as throwing a lamb leg on the grill. I brewed more often, only a gallon to three/four at a time. Anything I didn’t like would make friends happy.

    Though there was that time my “Russian barley wine” was too sweet for my taste, and three friends got in a shouting match over who got how many bottles. Gave me a whole new perspective on Russian history, though they were Irish guys, and that batch’s 22% was no doubt a contributor.

    When Enoch Powell actually had some power, as minister of health, he brought the first waves of Caribbeans into the UK to do unpleasant jobs in hospitals. Which is the problem, long term thinking thwarted by the need for short-term results.
     
    Dunno:

    After his speech on immigration in 1968, Powell's political opponents sometimes alleged that he had, when Minister of Health, recruited immigrants from the Commonwealth into the NHS. However, the Minister of Health was not responsible for recruitment (this was left to health authorities)[6]:286 and Sir George Godber, Chief Medical Officer for Her Majesty's Government in England from 1960–1973, stated that the allegation was "bunk...absolute rubbish. There was no such policy".[6]:597 Powell's biographer Simon Heffer also stated that the claim "is a complete untruth. As Powell's biographer I have been thoroughly through the Ministry of Health papers at the Public Record Office and have found no evidence to support this assertion".

    “Up until age six I spoke only Spanish,” William F. Buckley, Jr. told Brian Lamb, the founder of C-SPAN, in 1993. “

    Buckley spent his tender years split between family in CT and Mexico City. His first language was Spanish.
     
    That sounds.....doubtful. I suspect that Buckley is gilding the lily, as it were....

    By current definition that makes him solidly Hispanic. Possibly Latinx but not quite Chicanx.
     
    Is that the current definition? By that measure, a large percentage of Hispanics in the USA are not Hispanic......

    By that measure, a large percentage of Hispanics in the USA are not Hispanic……

    It’s either being born or raised in a Spanish-speaking country or direct descent from Hispanic people. There’s a lot of angst from anglophone Hispanics in America that don’t speak Spanish these days. Just do a youtube search for Mexicans that don’t speak Spanish. Some of the better videos are pretty funny in the fish-out-of-water genre. The reversal of Unz’s initiative should reverse that trend, though.

    I wonder about edge cases like full blooded Mayan Guatemalan Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchú who learned to speak Spanish starting at the age of twenty (from Así Me Nació La Consciencia),

    I'm genuinely curious about folks like Annie's position. Why do they think France is facing a terrorist threat now? Is there a limit to the number of Muslim immigrants that they'd admit?

    I wonder how much of this is actual belief & how much of this is being offended by people openly admitting that they don't want many Muslim immigration.

    Annie/Ezra have a child presumably they want a country that works for her.

    There’s probably a great deal of cognitive dissonance–and selective (cherry picking) recall of facts/information. Annie/Ezra probably disagree, and don’t think France is facing a terrorist threat.

    The prog-left mindset believes that Western (governments) society is the cause of acts of terrorism–that if the society were more welcoming, more open minded about accepting Muslims, then said acts would diminish. WE are the cause of said terrorism, i.e. that terrorism is an understandable reaction to racial/religious discrimination/persecution.

    No. They hate and fear the Gentile more than they hate and fear the Muslim
     
    Incorrect use of terminology. Muslims are also Gentiles.

    Technically yes. The real conflict is Semites vs. Europeans. The fellow-Semite kindred feeling is becoming more and more obvious as time goes on. They look similar, and think similarly (Judaism, Marxism, Islam are all conquering totalitarian semitic thought systems) because they are essentially the same people. The ongoing tribal conflict in the Middle East with Israel vs. moslems might have some people confused, but that is a brothers’ war.

    Sigmund Freud (Ashkenazi jew, Semite) adored and admired Hannibal (Phoenician/Carthaginian, Semite) because he ‘took it to Rome’ like Freud himself was trying to do, i.e. the Catholic Church, i.e. Europe, i.e. White people (towheads as Freud called them. Even the love/hate thing in regard to blonde hair is shared and eternal).

    But the jews and their Semitism are in White people’s heads thanks to Christianity so I strongly doubt they will ever understand and be able to do anything about it.

    We/USA get a better class of Muslims than Europe. Happily enough we are an ocean away from Muslim population centers of the Middle East which find Europe next door, thus easy to invade/hijack/take over via demographic Jihad.
    We get more Muslims who want to become apostate and who are semi-atheist. Not serious 5x daily head bumpers or believers in Islamic doctrine due to experiencing it and despising it. Iranians who get here really want to shuck off Islam and go atheist.

    But we still get too many Muslims who will remain invested believers. If it were up to me, no more Muslim immigration except for well vetted Iranians, who as far as I know are less inbred than Arabs and Pakistanis. There is hope for the Persians.

    I actually used Steve’s idea on my old-school liberal, i.e. blue-collar family history, wife with the women’s march. Told her about the clash between the Nice White Ladies and the sisters. Then I said that she’d need to “check her privilege” from now on if she’s going to stay a Dem.

    I had a discussion with my wife on the subject. What prompted it was my showing of the following to her, very on topic:

    https://youtube.com/watch?v=nR7VhRq2yns

    She would rather not be confronted by the politics, and that she disagreed that every Muslim is a bad person. However, what it really came down to after a lot of discussion was that none of her friends/family think the same way that I do and that she doesn't want to be thought of as a "terrible person" and lose her friends.

    I asked her if she had read the Koran, and responded she didn't have the time. I asked if she remembered what the main principles of Christianity were. I think she had forgotten them too. I was expecting to hear something like "The Ten Commandments" or "The Sermon on the Mount". The point being is that the core message from the Koran is completely different. The meek do not inherit the earth in the Koran. Instead one must wage Jihad. If that is what the average Muslim thinks is a good thing, importing people like that will be the destruction of Western civilization and our way of life. If you are going to make a statement that not every Muslim is a bad person, you should make some attempt to understand what Muslims believe.

    I mentioned Malmo in Sweden, and that Sweden used to be the model state that leftists would mention for the rest of the world to aspire to, gun control, welfare, you name it the Swedes had it and this made them a leftist utopia. And now they are the rape capital of Europe with Muslim areas as no-go zones for the police. Why don't they kick them out? Well, it's because most Swedes are politically correct and don't want to be seen as "terrible people".

    Why don't the politicians do the right thing then? Because it takes a lot of guts, and they don't want to be seen as literally Hitler by the media.

    I made the point that the 1968 generation had no experience with non-whites, and saw the world through a lens where it was whites who were always the instigators of negative actions towards non-whites. So they have created this world that they had not anticipated, and they are too old to adapt very well for the most part. It is up to ours and future generations to adapt to this world that our parents' generation have created for us.

    She takes my side in discussions with family but their side in discussions with me. Most women do not enjoy political discussions or thinking about politics. I think part of the reason the left has been successful with women is that it has pre-packaged its politics as doctrinal, good vs evil religious type emoting.

    Not quite. Politicians are in bed with Muslims (sometimes literally) and both hate and fear their countrymen, in particular the little people, at any rate.
    They figure by the time Muslims take over, if ever, they’ll be long dead by then, so they don’t care. “Apres moi, le deluge”. Politicians just want to hold on to their sinecures and their power, however limited.

    In the sense of the word Gentile as used by Jewish people you are right–all non-believers are considered to be Gentiles by Jewish people.

    However, Muslims would not consider themselves to be Gentiles and have also used the term Gentile to describe the non-believer as well. In fact, the term can be found in the Quran.

    So basically the term cannot really be applied to the Muslim correctly unless you feel comfortable applying a term to a group of people who would not accept that term as valid and use it themselves to describe the non-believer in THEIR faith.

    Well, if it comes to that, Christians have often used "Gentile" to describe non-Christians. E.g., Aquinas' Summa contra Gentiles .....

    This current round is not America's first experience with immigration. This circle was squared long ago with many generations of Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, etc. The proposition that America affords to immigrants is supposed to be a 2 way street - you accept American values and become a useful citizen and America will accept you as an American. America is much more than just the descendants of English settlers. The Constitution did not create a hereditary royalty consisting of the descendants of English settlers. This deal was and is valid, but then Leftists decided that American values (meaning dead white male values) were deplorable and should not be accepted by anyone and this spoiled the deal. If Americans themselves no longer believe the proposition, and their teachers tell them to despise racist, sexist America, then how can immigrants and their children buy into it?

    No, the deal has been spoiled because there has been a lot written about immigrants from certain parts of the world -- Latin America, and the Muslim world in particular -- where the immigrants are not assimilating, even across generations. You can say that this stuff isn't true, that second and third generation Latinos and Muslims are assimilating at the high rate that our ancestors did, but you should at least point to the refutations.

    May NOT be assimilating. I would suspect that there are immigrants here that are all about the free stuff, similar to their European brethren from the late 1800's. I would imagine that first generation immigrants back then AND now clung on bitterly to their customs and values, while encouraging their children to fully immerse themselves into the American way of life.

    On one hand, it would appear that assimilation is taking place rather quickly...

    "A close evaluation of Hispanic acculturation data suggests there was scant reason to worry that their growing presence in the country would dilute America’s national identity or lead to cultural separatism. The 2000 Fairfax County survey of Salvadoran immigrants like Call found that while 83 percent had arrived in the United States with no English at all, most of their children by the time of the survey spoke English well enough to translate for them. In a 2007 article, four political scientists examined available data for Hispanic immigrants and found that they “acquire English and lose Spanish rapidly beginning with the second generation” and that their educational attainment and political attitudes suggest “a traditional pattern of political assimilation.” A scholar at the RAND Corporation, after comparing the trajectories of various ethnic groups in America, found that “education advances made by Latinos are actually greater than those achieved by either Europeans or Asian migrants,” meaning that as a group their educational attainment rose steadily from generation to generation. Hispanics were joining the American mainstream, just as previous immigrants had."

    On the other hand, it would appear that our newcomers may hold different ideas about Americanism. Yet, to what extent had Europeans when they came here exhibited similar attitudes?

    "A broader and more difficult question was whether immigrants who became American citizens would genuinely embrace the American ideology. The woman from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) who presided at the naturalization ceremony at Oakton High School told the assembled immigrants to cheer as their origin countries were announced, and then she encouraged them to applaud again and wave their flags when they officially became Americans, as if they had been reborn. She said they should speak English whenever they could, take part in elections, and otherwise fulfill their civic responsibilities, but she also told them they should feel free to continue speaking their native language, celebrate their own cultural backgrounds, and stay true to their own religions."

    "You can say that this stuff isn’t true, that second and third generation Latinos and Muslims are assimilating at the high rate that our ancestors did, but you should at least point to the refutations."

    Assuming that our ancestors did assimilate at a rapid pace. Diversity Heretic was of the notion that the Irish and Italians were notoriously slower, and in retrospect should have not been let in.

    And, I'm sure those who are pro-immigrant and those who are anti-immigrant today each believe they are the authority on the matter.

    Technically yes. The real conflict is Semites vs. Europeans. The fellow-Semite kindred feeling is becoming more and more obvious as time goes on. They look similar, and think similarly (Judaism, Marxism, Islam are all conquering totalitarian semitic thought systems) because they are essentially the same people. The ongoing tribal conflict in the Middle East with Israel vs. moslems might have some people confused, but that is a brothers' war.

    Sigmund Freud (Ashkenazi jew, Semite) adored and admired Hannibal (Phoenician/Carthaginian, Semite) because he 'took it to Rome' like Freud himself was trying to do, i.e. the Catholic Church, i.e. Europe, i.e. White people (towheads as Freud called them. Even the love/hate thing in regard to blonde hair is shared and eternal).

    But the jews and their Semitism are in White people's heads thanks to Christianity so I strongly doubt they will ever understand and be able to do anything about it.

    By that measure, a large percentage of Hispanics in the USA are not Hispanic……

     

    It's either being born or raised in a Spanish-speaking country or direct descent from Hispanic people. There's a lot of angst from anglophone Hispanics in America that don't speak Spanish these days. Just do a youtube search for Mexicans that don't speak Spanish. Some of the better videos are pretty funny in the fish-out-of-water genre. The reversal of Unz's initiative should reverse that trend, though.

    I wonder about edge cases like full blooded Mayan Guatemalan Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchú who learned to speak Spanish starting at the age of twenty (from Así Me Nació La Consciencia),

    …llegó el terrateniente, empezó a hablar en español. Mi mamá lo entendía un poquito, un poquito de español y después nos decía, está hablando de la elecciones…

    Thanks for at least attempting to answer the question. In my own family, both parental families go back to the early 17th Century. However, starting around the middle of the 19th, they started marrying out. So we also have at least three identifiable groups of family who migrated from separate parts of Europe. I know from family tradition and/or personal acquaintance with the people involved that none of them were encouraged to maintain any linguistic or nationalist linkage to the Old Country. In fact, quite the contrary, because their parents wanted them to be Americans.

    As I have said repeatedly, for me, immigration is not so much a matter of who, but how many, and whether or not assimilation is rapid. In the first place, I am concerned about population densities (because it is clear that most population growth will happen in a few select locations; we aren't going to have 20 million people living in South Dakota, ever) and secondly I am concerned about assimilation not only because "cultural diversity" can lead alternatively to violent clashes but also to a withdrawal from civil society, but because it can lead to actual separatism.

    There are of course cultural issues involving nepotism, patronage, and subservience which to the Anglo-American POV appears as corruption, and these may affect our culture in the future as they may have affected it in the past. But we shouldn't encourage them. But that is altogether a separate issue, if the curve for assimilation is high, as your data suggests. On the other hand, the other data -- including our last several domestic terror attacks -- suggest the opposite.
