From the Toronto Globe & Mail:

Trump’s racism is more than rhetoric – it forms policy and ruins lives
SARAH KENDZIOR

SPECIAL TO THE GLOBE AND MAIL
PUBLISHED JANUARY 13, 2018

… Mr. Trump and his backers have abandoned the idea that America is for everyone – a fundamental precept of the United States.

Commenter Jus’ Sayin’ adds:

“America is for everyone”

The Zeroth Amendment. First Article in the Bill of Rights.

First seen in the Mayflower Compact, this became the closing sentence of the Declaration of Independence. Later it was incorporated into the Articles of Confederation and enshrined into law in the Northwest Act. Lincoln reiterated this theme in all his major addresses. It was part of the Emancipation Proclamation. Woodrow Wilson made it the Zeroth of his Fourteen Points. More recently one can find it as a prominent apart of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

It’s Who We Are.

    In which case I’m sure it can be found in the Constitution. Perhaps next to the Posterity Clause that I’d be deemed racist for invoking.

  4. Western elites used to treat the Whitey masses like mushrooms : keep them in the dark and feed them shit.

    Since Matt Drudge & Monica Lewinsky stole the “Internets” from Al Gore on Jan. 15, 1998, it has not been smooth sailing for our elites. On the night of Nov. 8, 2016, they suffered a collective nervous breakdown. They have yet to recover.

  5. The Toronto Star is the local Communist rag.

    The Globe & Mail, on the other hand, is the liberal internationalist screed machine. It is the mainstay of respectable opinion in English Canada. This paper, for example, largely supports finance minister Bill Morneau’s proposal of increasing Canada’s population from 30 million to 100 million by 2050 via wide-scale Third World immigration.

    If you have an opinion about anything to the right of the Globe & Mail, you will be considered a racist, homophobe, antisemitic, etc.

    As I’ve said before, if we get a candidate who even hints that the Conservative Party of Canada is the implicit White Man’s party, it would win in a landslide.

    I used to read the Toronto Red Star daily, mainly because of their decent coverage of local planning issues, now I won't even click on their webpage. The Globe & Mail, to their credit, at least covered how foreign money being laundered through real estate in Vancouver and Toronto was causing housing prices to soar.

    As for the writer of this piece, Sarah Kendzior, will let's just say she has an agenda.


    After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, Sarah began working for the New York Daily News as an online editor and writer. She worked there for about two years before returning to school.
    During her last year as a PhD student, she also worked as a consultant for the Open Society Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping developing countries build stable democracies.
    During that time, she also worked as an instructor for the university in the Department of Anthropology and the Department of International Studies.
    After graduation, Kendzior began consulting once again, this time for Freedom House, an organization that studies and reports on the governments of both the United States and foreign countries.

    Ms Kendzior should have some idea about what a “sh*thole” is, seeing she’s from St. Louis, a former notable city on its way to becoming one. The article is so blatantly inaccurate that one can only wince that a paper such as the Globe and Mail would even let it be printed. Such crude partisanship is abhorrent.

    What is free ‘for everyone’, has no value. Maybe that’s the point here – that citizenship in Western countries is worthless. We are all equal, all 7 billion of us. Of course, except for the exceptional people, who cannot be ever compared to anyone, they are exceptional.

    Canadian liberal globalists seem in an abstract-thinking induced tailspin into absurdity. What I find interesting is how many times politicians and journalists have called countries from Russia to Greece, from Poland to Hungary, ‘hellholes’, ‘xenophobic retards’, ‘lazy’, ‘backward’, etc… check it out, it happens almost daily and nobody is ever upset. I guess those poor countries do not have the population with the right ‘colour’; (they do have functioning sewage and indoor plumbing).

  11. Is it Canada’s job to MAGA? Usually interests coincide (although with his approach to NAFTA Trump disagrees).

    Other times it doesn’t. If the US takes in more takers than makers, then fewer will go to Canada. That’s in Canada’s interests. So the G&M is being patriotic.

    And it happened because "someone pushed the wrong button"? There's a button for that? Really? And they'll "get to the bottom of how it happened?" Dollars to doughnuts a POC did it because Trump and we'll never hear another word about it after today.

    A couple of years ago I was coming home from a downtown Chicago job around 6:30PM dark and it started raining cat & dogs, and the wind picked to get the proverbial horizontal rain. The authorities sounded a tornado alert and activated two warning sirens. The two sirens created a beat note from their differing frequencies and I felt this surreal "end of the world" sense. Fortunately, no tornado event made an appearance.

    Mr. Trump and his backers have abandoned the idea that America is for everyone – a fundamental precept of the United States.

    Fundamental, eh? Odd, then, how it’s nowhere mentioned in the Constitution, which is, you know, a fundamental document…..

    And then there’s the Naturalization Act of 1790:

    The original United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103) provided the first rules to be followed by the United States in the granting of national citizenship. This law limited naturalization to immigrants who were free white persons of good character.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalization_Act_of_1790

    And those restrictions were maintained in the 1795 Act:

    The United States Naturalization Act of January 29, 1795 (1 Stat. 414) repealed and replaced the Naturalization Act of 1790. The 1795 Act differed from the 1790 Act by increasing the period of required residence from two to five years in the United States, by introducing the Declaration of Intention requirement, or “first papers”, which created a two-step naturalization process, and by omitting the term “natural born.” The Act specified that naturalized citizenship was reserved only for “free white person[s].” It also changed the requirement in the 1790 Act of “good character” to read “good moral character.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalization_Act_of_1795

    Lots of Founders in Congress in 1790 and 1795……

    And then there are the opinions of future Broadway star Alexander Hamilton:

    “The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias, and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education, and family.

    “The opinion advanced in [Jefferson's] The Notes on Virginia is undoubtedly correct, that foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity, and to its particular customs and manners. They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or, if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism? There may, as to particular individuals, and at particular times, be occasional exceptions to these remarks, yet such is the general rule. The influx of foreigners must, therefore, tend to produce a heterogeneous compound; to change and corrupt the national spirit; to complicate and confound public opinion; to introduce foreign propensities. In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all-important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency.

    “The United States have already felt the evils of incorporating a large number of foreigners into their national mass; by promoting in different classes different predilections in favor of particular foreign nations, and antipathies against others, it has served very much to divide the community and to distract our councils. It has been often likely to compromise the interests of our own country in favor of another. The permanent effect of such a policy will be, that in times of great public danger there will be always a numerous body of men, of whom there may be just grounds of distrust; the suspicion alone will weaken the strength of the nation, but their force may be actually employed in assisting an invader.”

    And then there’s the repatriation of Mexicans that occurred under both Hoover and FDR:

    The Mexican Repatriation was a mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936.[1][2] Estimates of how many were repatriated range from 500,000 to 2,000,000,[3][4] of whom perhaps 60% were US citizens by birth.[4]:330

    Widely blamed for exacerbating the overall economic downturn,[5] Mexicans were further targeted because of “the proximity of the Mexican border, the physical distinctiveness of mestizos, and easily identifiable barrios.”[6]:29 Because the forced movement was based on race, and ignored citizenship, one scholar has argued that the process meets modern standards for ethnic cleansing.[

    @J.Ross

    As the Founders were discussing the Constitution a lot of what they did was to compare peoples, societies and nations, always categorically. The Poles did this but the Greeks did that. They were thoroughly aware of historical examples and arguing using what-might-happens. They sounded a hell of a lot more like us observing how immigration is working out in various places.
    None of the people making these arguments have any familiarity with what they are talking about at all, not even Jack Kerkove, who is supposed to be a law professor. The positions are perfectly incompatible. I remember being a weakening half-leftist and watching the uniquely irreplaceable documentary In Search Of The Second Amendment (free on YouTube, the host is a liberal lawyer who became interested in guns when he went South as part of the Civil Rights movement and discovered that the police are not always there to protect you). They get to the new lefty argument that we should have guns, but stored in a centralized and state-owned armory. It turns out this was proposed several times during the Amending and it was thoroughly rejected every time. Imagine that. The notion that the militia is the Army is its own special historical illiteracy.
    This is red pill stuff, you either get one side and can never again be fooled by the other, or else you just don't know it. This brings us to the real meat and why the Second is not a digression.
    America's actual founding principle is a unique conception of law. This idea of pre-government rights is crystallized in firearm ownership. The Constitutional equivalent of Muggles hate that and want to replace it with their idea of law, which is that the God State can do whatever it wants. You have no rights, but you can get licensing. This is how most societies have always worked and is the reason for their misery even as our legal philosphy created the space for our success.

    Another one who either hasn’t read, or won’t acknowledge our early naturalization acts.

    From Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution:

    The Congress shall have Power To….

    establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,…;

    From the First Naturalization Act of 1790:

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen …

    Does anyone doubt that the Founders would have included in the Constitution of 1787 the passages of the naturalization act which they wrote into law three years later if they had any hint about the future demographic makeup of this nation? Imagine if the same paragraph from the 1790 law was inserted into the Constitution instead.

    Canada’s relative success with immigration comes from their much more severe standards. These are never mentioned by establishmentarian Canada-admirers.

    Sweet irony from liberal Canada:

    Canada’s minister of immigration, Ahmed Hussen, himself a former refugee who moved to the country from Somalia when he was 16, said Canada was proud to be a welcoming country but could not welcome everyone. Only about 8 percent of Haitian migrants had received asylum here since the summer, he said, while there is a backlog of about 40,700 cases, according to Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board.

    “We don’t want people to illegally enter our border, and doing so is not a free ticket to Canada,” Mr. Hussen said in an interview. “We are saying, ‘You will be apprehended, screened, detained, fingerprinted, and if you can’t establish a genuine claim, you will be denied refugee protection and removed.’ ”

    Canada also has had the benefit of being bordered by the US, ocean, and Arctic ice while the US has Canada to the north but Mexico to the south, through which Central and South America - all 3rd world countries - has poured almost at will along with others who can get to Mexico from all over the world. The US also takes in more refugees than any other country.

    Now that Trump is cracking down on illegal aliens etc, Canada is getting a small dose of what the US has experienced for decades. Reality bites.

    When I was a young boy my father explained to me that Canada is the dumping ground for the excess populations of various former British Colonies. Extend that to non-former Brit colonies and that applies today. That's Canada's future and nothing will stop it. Unlike Americans Canadians are an apathetic bunch and don't stand a chance against the continuing tide of globalism and mass migration.

    Not to mention Operation: Wetback under Eisenhower:

    Operation Wetback was an immigration law enforcement initiative created by Joseph Swing, the Director of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), in cooperation with the Mexican government. The program was implemented in May 1954 by U.S. Attorney General Herbert Brownell and utilized special tactics to deal with illegal border crossings into the United States by Mexican nationals.[1] The program became a contentious issue in Mexico–United States relations, even though it originated from a request by the Mexican government to stop the illegal entry of Mexican laborers into the United States. Legal entry of Mexican workers for seasonal labor was at the time controlled by the Bracero program, established during World War II by an agreement between the U.S. and Mexican governments. Operation Wetback was primarily a response to pressure from a broad coalition of farmers and business interests concerned with the effects of Mexican immigrants living in the United States without legal permission.[2] After implementation, Operation Wetback gave rise to arrests and deportations by the U.S. Border Patrol that were civil rights violations, which resulted in several hundred United States citizens being illegally deported without being given a chance to prove their citizenship.[3][4]

    Operation Wetback was a system of tactical control and cooperation within the U.S. Border Patrol and alongside the Mexican government.[26] Planning between the INS, led by Gen. Joseph Swing as appointed by President Eisenhower, and the Mexican government began in early 1954 while the program was formally announced in May 1954.[27] On May 17, command teams of 12 Border Patrol agents, buses, planes, and temporary processing stations began locating, processing, and deporting Mexicans who had illegally entered the United States. A total of 750 immigration and border patrol officers and investigators; 300 jeeps, cars and buses; and seven airplanes were allocated for the operation.[28] Teams were focused on quick processing, as planes were able to coordinate with ground efforts and quickly deport people into Mexico.[29] Those deported were handed off to Mexican officials, who in turn moved them into central Mexico where there were many labor opportunities.[30] While the operation included the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago, its main targets were border areas in Texas and California.[29]

    Overall, there were 1,078,168 apprehensions made in the first year of Operation Wetback, with 170,000 being rounded up from May to July 1954. In addition, many illegal immigrants fled to Mexico fearing arrest; over half a million from Texas alone.[

    The Guardian’s description of pre-earthquake Haiti certainly sounds like an outdoor privy.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/jan/14/haiti-history-earthquake-disaster

    “what has really left Haiti in such a state today, what makes the country a constant and heart-rending site of ­recurring catastrophe, is its history. In Haiti, the last five centuries have combined to produce a people so poor, an infrastructure so nonexistent and a state so hopelessly ineffectual that whatever natural disaster chooses to strike next, its impact on the population will be magnified many, many times over. Every single factor that international experts look for when trying to measure a nation’s vulnerability to natural disasters is, in Haiti, at the very top of the scale. Countries, when it comes to dealing with disaster, do not get worse.

    “Haiti has had slavery, revolution, debt, deforestation, corruption, exploitation and violence,” says Alex von Tunzelmann, a historian and writer currently working on a book about the country and its near neighbours, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. “Now it has poverty, illiteracy, overcrowding, no infrastructure, environmental disaster and large areas without the rule of law. And that was before the earthquake…

    It needn’t, though, have been like this. In the 18th century, under French rule, Haiti – then called Saint-Domingue – was the Pearl of the Antilles, one of the richest islands in France’s empire…”

The Act specified that naturalized citizenship was reserved only for "free white person[s]." It also changed the requirement in the 1790 Act of "good character" to read "good moral character."
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalization_Act_of_1795


    Lots of Founders in Congress in 1790 and 1795......

    And then there are the opinions of future Broadway star Alexander Hamilton:


    “The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias, and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education, and family.

     


    “The opinion advanced in [Jefferson's] The Notes on Virginia is undoubtedly correct, that foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity, and to its particular customs and manners. They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or, if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism? There may, as to particular individuals, and at particular times, be occasional exceptions to these remarks, yet such is the general rule. The influx of foreigners must, therefore, tend to produce a heterogeneous compound; to change and corrupt the national spirit; to complicate and confound public opinion; to introduce foreign propensities. In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all-important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency.

     


    “The United States have already felt the evils of incorporating a large number of foreigners into their national mass; by promoting in different classes different predilections in favor of particular foreign nations, and antipathies against others, it has served very much to divide the community and to distract our councils. It has been often likely to compromise the interests of our own country in favor of another. The permanent effect of such a policy will be, that in times of great public danger there will be always a numerous body of men, of whom there may be just grounds of distrust; the suspicion alone will weaken the strength of the nation, but their force may be actually employed in assisting an invader.”

     

    And then there's the repatriation of Mexicans that occurred under both Hoover and FDR:

    The Mexican Repatriation was a mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936.[1][2] Estimates of how many were repatriated range from 500,000 to 2,000,000,[3][4] of whom perhaps 60% were US citizens by birth.[4]:330

    Widely blamed for exacerbating the overall economic downturn,[5] Mexicans were further targeted because of "the proximity of the Mexican border, the physical distinctiveness of mestizos, and easily identifiable barrios."[6]:29 Because the forced movement was based on race, and ignored citizenship, one scholar has argued that the process meets modern standards for ethnic cleansing.[
     

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_Repatriation#Repatriation_of_the_early_1930s


    Not to mention Operation: Wetback under Eisenhower:


    Operation Wetback was an immigration law enforcement initiative created by Joseph Swing, the Director of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), in cooperation with the Mexican government. The program was implemented in May 1954 by U.S. Attorney General Herbert Brownell and utilized special tactics to deal with illegal border crossings into the United States by Mexican nationals.[1] The program became a contentious issue in Mexico–United States relations, even though it originated from a request by the Mexican government to stop the illegal entry of Mexican laborers into the United States. Legal entry of Mexican workers for seasonal labor was at the time controlled by the Bracero program, established during World War II by an agreement between the U.S. and Mexican governments. Operation Wetback was primarily a response to pressure from a broad coalition of farmers and business interests concerned with the effects of Mexican immigrants living in the United States without legal permission.[2] After implementation, Operation Wetback gave rise to arrests and deportations by the U.S. Border Patrol that were civil rights violations, which resulted in several hundred United States citizens being illegally deported without being given a chance to prove their citizenship.[3][4]

     


    Operation Wetback was a system of tactical control and cooperation within the U.S. Border Patrol and alongside the Mexican government.[26] Planning between the INS, led by Gen. Joseph Swing as appointed by President Eisenhower, and the Mexican government began in early 1954 while the program was formally announced in May 1954.[27] On May 17, command teams of 12 Border Patrol agents, buses, planes, and temporary processing stations began locating, processing, and deporting Mexicans who had illegally entered the United States. A total of 750 immigration and border patrol officers and investigators; 300 jeeps, cars and buses; and seven airplanes were allocated for the operation.[28] Teams were focused on quick processing, as planes were able to coordinate with ground efforts and quickly deport people into Mexico.[29] Those deported were handed off to Mexican officials, who in turn moved them into central Mexico where there were many labor opportunities.[30] While the operation included the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago, its main targets were border areas in Texas and California.[29]

    Overall, there were 1,078,168 apprehensions made in the first year of Operation Wetback, with 170,000 being rounded up from May to July 1954. In addition, many illegal immigrants fled to Mexico fearing arrest; over half a million from Texas alone.[

     

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Wetback

    I guess that both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eisenhower didn't understand that "America is for everyone"......

    As the Founders were discussing the Constitution a lot of what they did was to compare peoples, societies and nations, always categorically. The Poles did this but the Greeks did that. They were thoroughly aware of historical examples and arguing using what-might-happens. They sounded a hell of a lot more like us observing how immigration is working out in various places.
    None of the people making these arguments have any familiarity with what they are talking about at all, not even Jack Kerkove, who is supposed to be a law professor. The positions are perfectly incompatible. I remember being a weakening half-leftist and watching the uniquely irreplaceable documentary In Search Of The Second Amendment (free on YouTube, the host is a liberal lawyer who became interested in guns when he went South as part of the Civil Rights movement and discovered that the police are not always there to protect you). They get to the new lefty argument that we should have guns, but stored in a centralized and state-owned armory. It turns out this was proposed several times during the Amending and it was thoroughly rejected every time. Imagine that. The notion that the militia is the Army is its own special historical illiteracy.
    This is red pill stuff, you either get one side and can never again be fooled by the other, or else you just don’t know it. This brings us to the real meat and why the Second is not a digression.
    America’s actual founding principle is a unique conception of law. This idea of pre-government rights is crystallized in firearm ownership. The Constitutional equivalent of Muggles hate that and want to replace it with their idea of law, which is that the God State can do whatever it wants. You have no rights, but you can get licensing. This is how most societies have always worked and is the reason for their misery even as our legal philosphy created the space for our success.

    I’m going to have to disagree with both of these points from Ben Shapiro. The countries Trump labeled ‘sh*tholes’ themselves would be great places were it not for the people who live there. Doubt it? Name me a black run, majority black city or country that has the achievements, civility, generosity, or self-created prosperity of an average predominately white city or country. Plenty of examples of whites going to black sh*tholes, and turning them into great first world cities or countries. And every example of blacks taking over a once great white city or country results in it turning into a sh*thole. It’s the people. Many of Africa’s countries were blessed with great natural wealth and resources, much more than the countries to the north of it.

    I used to read the Toronto Red Star daily, mainly because of their decent coverage of local planning issues, now I won’t even click on their webpage. The Globe & Mail, to their credit, at least covered how foreign money being laundered through real estate in Vancouver and Toronto was causing housing prices to soar.

    As for the writer of this piece, Sarah Kendzior, will let’s just say she has an agenda.

    After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, Sarah began working for the New York Daily News as an online editor and writer. She worked there for about two years before returning to school.
    During her last year as a PhD student, she also worked as a consultant for the Open Society Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping developing countries build stable democracies.
    During that time, she also worked as an instructor for the university in the Department of Anthropology and the Department of International Studies.
    After graduation, Kendzior began consulting once again, this time for Freedom House, an organization that studies and reports on the governments of both the United States and foreign countries.

    Canada's relative success with immigration comes from their much more severe standards. These are never mentioned by establishmentarian Canada-admirers.

    They also have a drug store chain called "Shopper's Drug Mart," (see it, it doesn't belong to its owner, except for legal purposes), which reminds one of how Trots added "Workers'" to their party names.

    Sweet irony from liberal Canada:

    Canada’s minister of immigration, Ahmed Hussen, himself a former refugee who moved to the country from Somalia when he was 16, said Canada was proud to be a welcoming country but could not welcome everyone. Only about 8 percent of Haitian migrants had received asylum here since the summer, he said, while there is a backlog of about 40,700 cases, according to Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board.

    “We don’t want people to illegally enter our border, and doing so is not a free ticket to Canada,” Mr. Hussen said in an interview. “We are saying, ‘You will be apprehended, screened, detained, fingerprinted, and if you can’t establish a genuine claim, you will be denied refugee protection and removed.’ ”

Extend that to non-former Brit colonies and that applies today. That’s Canada’s future and nothing will stop it.

    A couple of years ago I was coming home from a downtown Chicago job around 6:30PM dark and it started raining cat & dogs, and the wind picked to get the proverbial horizontal rain. The authorities sounded a tornado alert and activated two warning sirens. The two sirens created a beat note from their differing frequencies and I felt this surreal "end of the world" sense. Fortunately, no tornado event made an appearance.

    You want blood and soil nationalism in Canada? You should call yourself the Canuck Quixote.

    Canada’s disadvantage is too little blood for too much soil.

    Would it have killed them to put some parentheses around "Joel Stein"? It would have made the cover about a hundred times better.

    It might have even made them wonder "Is it possible that people like us are doing something to make other people dislike us?".

    You may say that it's impossible, but Joel Stein already admitted a lot of it:

    http://articles.latimes.com/2008/dec/19/opinion/oe-stein19

    From there, how much of a leap is it, really, to wondering if maybe it's possible that people just don't like the way they run things?

    Would it have killed them to put some parentheses around “Joel Stein”?

    That’s one vowel away from an anagram of “Joe Stalin”.

    YEah of course America is for everyone. That’s because White men are too dweeby, nerdy, beta male-ish, which was adaptive before the welfare state and the pill, condom, anonymous urban living, and female driven advertising and consumerism. White Beta males formed the shock troops of the Greek Phalanx, the Roman Legions, the Middle Ages Pike Squares, and the musket/rifle infantrymen from the Enlightenment to Vietnam. Men who would fight together, mostly in a line, disciplined, slaughter as a day’s work. Not much different from the Olive Harvest or plowing. That was the White Man Advantage — beta males — and its now a massive disadvantage.

    White Nationalists aka White Knights are in denial. The same stuff that has parents pimping out their teen daughters to rapefugees in Germany aged 35 or so (as the new conquerors and they know it) with said teens eagerly awaiting their new conqueror husbands has White women in a rage — they were promised billionaire werewolf/vampire boyfriends and all they got was ordinary men that remind them that themselves are ordinary.

    All this Open Borders stuff is driven 100% by women. Any place where women have the upper hand they import male conquerors who are more violent and dominant than their male cohorts with extreme predictability. And any place that wisely keeps women subservient and subordinate to men avoids this: Russia (plenty of Jews still there), Israel (plenty of Jews there), Switzerland (not much Jews), Japan (almost no Jews), Austria (some Jews, and some subservience of women), Poland (women definitely subservient to men.

    Women want things that are incompatible with what Beta Males want. A few dominant men swaggering about, impregnating most of the women and constant dramas as they compete to be harem queen; with most Beta males slaves or serfs or dead. That’s a female paradise. A male paradise is revolting to women — one in which they must constantly be more attractive to ordinary men to gain and retain male commitment and resources, and they can’t hop from Alpha male to Alpha male like Carly Simon.

    Why, its as if the biological desires of men and women are in the main, completely incompatible and at odds with each other!

    Bottom line if a billion Salma Hayeks and Sofia Vergaras were making for the border, the Wall would have been built in a week. But since you have lots of low IQ, aggressive, dark skinned, and violent men on the move, otherwise known as chick-crack, well the borders must be open. Its why you see the most feminized men like the manly man Lindsey Grahamnesty making the argument for Open Borders. Its bringing the Jamaican Sex Trade (middle aged fat White women looking for young gigolos) on a global scale. Or the reverse Gary Glitter trade if you will. Without the need to go to Thailand to look for underage hookers.

    Just saying …

    Canada picked the wrong time to elect a liberal prime minister because he is handsome. Thousands of Haitians have trekked up to Canada. None as of yet have been deported & there has been minimal resistance to their arrival. The issue for Canada is that as Trump tightens the screws many thousand Haitians, Salvadorans and others will see this early group’s success and make the trek up to Canada. Canada could be looking at tens of thousands asylum requests and arrivals from the US. Tredeau will become North America’s Merkel.

    Btw is Canada an “Idea Nation”?

  • Always The Menacing Mention of Future Demography:

    Mr. Trump’s base may be overwhelmingly white, but by 2020 non-whites will be the majority of America’s children. Given this shifting demographic, one would normally expect a president and his party to tone down racist rhetoric in a midterm election year and instead try to expand the voter base.

    That Mr. Trump remains blatantly racist shows not only personal mendacity but a lack of concern for the will of the public – a nonchalance best explained by the numerous suppression mechanisms the GOP has designed to disenfranchise voters.

    WHITE IDENTITY POLITICS is the answer to the demographic future threatening the European Christian ancestral core of the United States.

    WHITE LADY VOTERS must be told this over and over. The writer is gloating about the demographic dispossession of Whites among the youngest cohorts.

    Canada's relative success with immigration comes from their much more severe standards. These are never mentioned by establishmentarian Canada-admirers.

    They also have a drug store chain called "Shopper's Drug Mart," (see it, it doesn't belong to its owner, except for legal purposes), which reminds one of how Trots added "Workers'" to their party names.

    Canada also has had the benefit of being bordered by the US, ocean, and Arctic ice while the US has Canada to the north but Mexico to the south, through which Central and South America – all 3rd world countries – has poured almost at will along with others who can get to Mexico from all over the world. The US also takes in more refugees than any other country.

    Now that Trump is cracking down on illegal aliens etc, Canada is getting a small dose of what the US has experienced for decades. Reality bites.

    "America is for everyone"
     
    The Zeroth Amendment. First Article in the Bill of Rights.

    First seen in the Mayflower Compact, this became the closing sentence of the Declaration of Independence. Later it was incorporated into the Articles of Confederation and enshrined into law in the Northwest Act. Lincoln reiterated this theme in all his major addresses. It was part of the Emancipation Proclamation. Woodrow Wilson made it the Zeroth of his Fourteen Points. More recently one can find it as a prominent apart of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

    America is not only for the whites , but it is for all. Who is the America? The American is you, me and that. When we go to America we will become Americans and there is no a race or nationalism called America and the Americans are those Africans, Indians, Chinese, and Europeans and whoever goes to America will become American…American is for all of us and the whole world had made and created America. All the people all over the world had made America and it shall accordingly be for all of us. I will never feel ashamed when I claim for my right in America and it will not be strange when I raise my voice in America.
