Everybody, obviously. To decide that not everybody gets to be American would be discriminatory.

Seriously, the Good People culturally appropriating old Norman Rockwell illustrations by diversificationizing them has to be the lamest trend of 2018:

It’s funny how when the American media asks immigrants “Who Gets to Be American?” the answer usually turns out to be “My cousin.” Were immigrants alway quite so shamelessly nepotistic?

Professor Viet Thanh Nguyen is a smart guy, but he’s so desperate for some of that Crazy Rich Asians “Represent Me!” lucre, it’s embarrassing.

Stradivarius Cain responds: Open borders is a Nguyen-Nguyen solution for everybody.

    Judging from the experience of the Irish in America–and I’m about 1/3 Irish–the answer is yes.

    But come to think about it, for whatever reason that seems to hold mostly for immigrants who stay urban. Then again, nowadays immigrants increasingly stay urban.

    From Waugh’s “Put Out More Flags,” 1942.

    “You might write a book for us then. I’m getting out a very nice little series on ‘What We Are Fighting For.’ I’ve signed up a retired admiral, a Church of England curate, an unemployed docker, a Negro solicitor from the Gold Coast, and a nose-and-throat specialist from Harley Street. The original idea was to have a symposium in one volume, but I’ve had to enlarge the idea a little. All our authors had such very different ideas it might have been a little confusing. We could fit you in very nicely. ‘I used to think war crazy.’ It’s a new line.”

    “But I do think war crazy still.”

    “Yes,” said Mr. Bentley, his momentary enthusiasm waning. “I know what you mean.”

  5. I think that pregnant in Mr. Nguyen’s question is the real question, which is: “Who gets to decide who gets to be American?”

    The “artwork” accompanying the question seems to provide the answer to Mr. Nguyen’s rhetorical question: “Not you, whitey.”

  6. Getting ready to vote early and often, using provisional and mail-in ballots, against Trump in 2020.

    The TIME cover is really an obituary notice for the United States of America.

    Indeed Mr. Leamas.

    Pregnant in your question is, to me, the more interesting and vital question: “Who doesn’t get to become an American?”

    I’ve yet to hear any of these globalist knuckleheads delineate any coherent limiting principle for their open immigration policy.

  8. Funny how Mexican Americans want more Mexicans to immigrate here. Muslims want more Muslims, etc. No surprise as we are all nepotistic.

    Let’s get some “on the street” interviews with Mexicans or Muslims or whatever where they are asked about greatly increasing the numbers of Chinese and Indians immigrating to America to help fill the high tech job openings. After all, there are about 8 of them for every American, so no shortage of immigrants to fill up America. I bet they are not so enthusiastic about immigration then.

  10. TG says:

    “Who gets to be an American” – the answer should be, people who are already Americans. If non-Americans are to be adopted into the family, that should be the decision of the American people themselves.

    But the real answer is: the Koch brothers (and their fellow oligarchs) get to decide. They get to decide who gets to be an American, not us. And if they ever start to worry about the country becoming unstable, they will without shame seal the border and if necessary machine gun migrants en masse.

    Because this country does not belong to us. It’s a farm. And the Koch brothers are the farmers. And we are cattle. And farmers don’t ask the cattle’s permission if they want to jam them in more tightly, do they?

    Great point Alec. Can’t be emphasized enough.

    “Who decides?”—and it’s correlative questions:

    1. How many?
    2. At what rate of entry?
    3. What mix of nationalities?

    Leftists can scream and yell that these—and the last one especially—open the door to discrimination. But ANY answer would be discrimination of some kind; immigration *policy* discriminates by definition.

    What flummoxes liberals of my acquaintance is the “Who decides?” question. Maybe because these are of an older generation, they can’t bring themselves to argue against a democratic decision by citizens. Opinion makers of the Left still have not come up with a standard, surefire retort that blithely replaces popular governance with decision by totalitarian clique.

    At least, these older liberals haven’t internalized it yet. They’d rather avoid the issue of immigration entirely, and defer to nonhuman authorities like “science” or “international law.”

    What’s not so funny is why the voice and wishes of the American people have never been asked or listened to over Immigration.

  20. Wilkey says:

    It’s convenient that they ask a guy like Viet Thanh Nguyen, who hails from a country absolutely no one wants to immigrate to. Why not have a Japanese author? Then we could ask him in reply “who gets to be Japanese?”

    I’m not just making the normal point about hypocrisy, as good a point as that is. If the whole point of living in a cosmopolitan, multicultural world is that we treat all cultures equally then why aren’t we asking “who gets to be Japanese” or “who gets to be Israeli” or a citizen of any other country? The Left never hesitates to impose it’s values on other countries in any other number of ways. Why isn’t it imposing its immigration values on these countries, as well (unless they happen to be white and Christian)?

    Who gets to be American? The people who we Americans decide get to be American.

    Once upon a time a Time magazine cover story would have meant something. In 2017 alone it’s circulation fell by 33%, from 3 million to 2 million. “New” Americans have never bought the magazine. Legacy Americans no longer want to. I’d guess that the age of its average reader is somewhere north of 50 or even 60 years old, who only continue to buy out of inertia. It’s the kind of magazine which celebrates the death and decline of traditional white America even as its readership dies off even faster.

    These current Asians have 20 or 30 IQ points on the Asians Andrew Jackson dealt with, but they will go as the others did regardless. It will be as difficult as the Asians make it, but they will not colonize and occupy the United States.

    If you (or someone else) is willing to be publicly identified, then please consider converting this into a letter and submitting it to Time for publication. (The magazine published letters when I last remember looking at a copy, although that was years ago.) The last paragraph should be omitted, and the apostrophe removed from “it’s” in the second.

    I would be pleasantly shocked to learn that Time has the guts to print your challenging questions, assuming that the magazine is still around in a couple more months.

    Good point.

    Also bothersome in this essay is the usual supremacism of the current day immigrant: “America sucks with its history of genocide, colonialism, etc., so we are here to replace those people with my wonderful untainted people. This may look like another form of genocide and colonialism, but I will explain to you why it is different” Nguyen hedges this a bit, at least, with some criticism in passing of Vietnam, but lets it slip some more with his musings, “Perhaps it is not so far-fetched to imagine that one day someone like me, born in Vietnam, might be sent back to Vietnam, despite having made more out of myself than many native-born Americans.”

    “How about the kind of people who created America (**and invented/created/discovered just about everything in existence**) and not the kind of people who created Third World shitholes?”

    **“White inventions” or “western science”, while noteworthy in their original ideas and innovations, of course owe much to paper, the compass, and movable type (Chinese), to the number 0 (India), and to the idea of a rule-based, law-giving universal Creator (Middle East). Bear in mind that there are few inventions that are “purely” white. Take this comment for example. It depends on the Internet and computers – “white inventions”. But it also depends on the alphabet, a Phoenician invention, and the idea of writing itself, which in the West comes from Egypt. At any point in history, most inventions will come from one part of the world because it is the most advanced at that particular time.

    You are the type of white person who is quick to point out how other people have done something bad too, how it is “natural”. Like with the slave trade, you would quickly point out that Africans and Arabs also did it. Historical context suddenly matters. But when it comes to good things, like inventions, you act like “your kind” were the only ones. It is no longer “natural” anymore. Wave bye-bye to historical context.

    Remember, four important Chinese inventions–gunpowder, compass, paper, printing press–in part enabled the rise of Europeans, who promptly engaged in imperialism for gimmedats and free stuff in Africa and the Middle East, which helped facilitate “Third World shitholes”.

    By the way, unless you are able to directly trace your family tree on your mother’s and father’s side to ancestors who arrived prior to 1763, you are not an American. You have to go back.

    I didn’t even know Time Magazine was still in business until I had to start seeing Drs. recently . It’s in the waiting rooms . It’s not my father’s Time any more . Luce must be spinning in his grave .
    “In September 2018, Meredith announced the sale of Time to Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne for $190 million.” Marc Benioff a Jew from SF .”In 2016, he was named one of Fortune’s 50 World’s Greatest Leaders for his commitment to equality for all and other social issues as CEO”. ” Benioff led a global effort of business leaders fighting back against Religious Freedom Restoration Act ultimately leading to the Indiana State Legislature’s passing an amendment to the bill containing protections for LGBT customers, tenants and employees.” Benioff supported Hillary Clinton for President of the United States in the 2016 presidential election. So basically a “termite”.
    During the second half of 2009, the magazine had a 34.9% decline in newsstand sales . During the first half of 2010, another decline of at least one-third in Time magazine sales occurred. In the second half of 2010, Time magazine newsstand sales declined by about 12% to just over 79,000 copies per week.
    Time initially possessed a distinctive writing style, making regular use of inverted sentences. This was parodied in 1936 by Wolcott Gibbs in The New Yorker: “Backward ran sentences until reeled the mind [...] Where it all will end, knows God!” Sounds like Yoda another SJW . Embrace the dark side .

    Judge Bernard Friedman is; quelle suprise! a Jew. His ruling legalizing gay marriage in Michigan and then presiding over the wedding and staying for the grandiose reception was celebrated in the Detroit Jewish News as another marvelous example of how the virtuous and saintly Jews are maki g America a better and better place with every warped judicial decision.

    The argument for the defense of the FGM drs and parents was that the federal law making FGM illegal was not debated, but just proposed and quickly passed by Congress.
    So the good Jewish judge Friedman has set another precedent, that no federal
    Law is valid unless it has been extensively debated before passing.

    Given that precedent the next time a US president is murdered, the defendant can’t be tried and convicted in a federal court but in the state in which the president was killed

    After all in November 1963, there was no federal law forbidding the nursery of a president so if Oswald had lived he would have been tried in Texas

    After the murder of Kennedy a federal law was swiftly passed without debate making the murder of a president a federal crime.

    What’s the significance of 1763?

    End of the French and Indian war when the Americans decided to defy the treaty the English made with the Indians and invade Indian territory in violation of the treaties and the legitimate English government? Perhaps only descendants of men who actually fought in that war should be considered American.

    By fought I mean actually fought, not quarter masters teamsters and other support troops.

  68. How about we make it easy, and just declare a moratorium on all immigration. Let someone else carry the immigration baton for 50 years. I am sure China or Niger or Paraguay or some other sap, er, country, is up for the job.

    Lee Jussim at Rutgers has been doing similar studies looking at people’s responses to politically correct statements by looking at brain activity (which is actually more reliable than a lie detector) and getting some interesting results. Added bonus- this was done in solidly blue state NJ.

    New Jersey is the most segregated state in the United States if you go by town lines. At least it was.

    Ask fat boy mass immigration fanatic Chris Christie why he moved to the mostly White town of Mendham, New Jersey. Some damn wag will say the “ham” in Mendham got the attention of walrus rump Christie, but it ain’t so.

    Hey Christie, don’t offer Shelly Adelson any ham with mustard — or talk about the word “occupation” or “occupied” — if you want to pry some loot out of Adelson.

    One more observation about this cover story. Written by a non-European and featuring an almost entirely non-European cast of characters, one needs to remember that Europeans are still 62% of the population. Of course people on this blog realize that 62% means little since it is dropping each year, and even with a complete shutdown of immigration, birth rates and such would still push us in the same direction. But that is not the point of this comment.

    Rather I am pointing out how people seem to be lulled into complacency so long as they think they are in the majority. And then are quite surprised to learn that it doesn’t take the other side accumulating 50% to make drastic changes that forever alter the situation.

    I recall when Pat Buchanan first raised the immigration issue in 1992. I had friends telling me that this was a non-issue since Hispanics were not even 9 percent of the population. They thought I was wasting my time listening to Pat argue about something so insignificant. Yet by the time Hispanics hit 10 percent of the population,they were in a position to prevent immigration restrictions on Latin America.

    At 10 percent a political party was bound to see them as an ally in their fight with the other party, and thus would fight tooth and nail to keep them coming. Additionally Spanish became a de facto second language, from government forms to the aisles of Home Depot. Even today Hispanics are just approaching 18%, well below 50%, but they are a force to be reckoned with.

    I am sure those guys from 1992 would be surprised how much things have changed given that “WE” are still over 50% of the population. But most people just can’t see it that way. They think that if they are in the majority all is well. However, there are exceptions where people seem to understand that a small change can poison the well.

    For example, most whites will not send their kids to a school that is 50% black. In fact many would consider 10% or even a 5% black student population to be a tipping point to avoid if they can afford to. Yet they just don’t seem to get this with the national population figures.

    Now we have other groups coming in large numbers. I think muslims are closing in on 2 percent. Of course I meet the same type of people today who tell me that a 1 percent or 2 percent muslim population is no big deal. But then what is the number where such a population starts to make a material change to your society? In Europe it seems that places with 5% experience calls for separate islamic law and the like. We already have implemented security measures at airports and public events that I would never have imagined. And that is with a muslim population of under 2 percent. What will happen here when they reach 5 percent?

    The bottom line is people feel safe behind the perception that they are in the majority. But fail to realize it doesn’t take a majority of the other to materially affect your nation. On that I will close from this quote from the late Lawrence Auster.

    A traditionalist is a person who sees a threat to his society the moment it appears. A conservative is a person who sees the threat to his society after it’s already done a lot of damage. A liberal is a person who only sees sees the threat to his society after it’s too late to do anything about it—or he never sees it at all.

    You are the type of white person who is quick to point out how other people have done something bad too, how it is “natural”. Like with the slave trade, you would quickly point out that Africans and Arabs also did it. Historical context suddenly matters. But when it comes to good things, like inventions, you act like “your kind” were the only ones. It is no longer “natural” anymore. Wave bye-bye to historical context.

    For the record, I’m completely against slavery, even when white people are guilty.

    Many Americans consider the war to be a noble, if possibly flawed, example of American good intentions. And while there is some truth to that, it was also simply a continuation of French colonization, a war that was racist and imperialist at its roots and in its practices. As such, this war was just one manifestation of a centuries-long expansion of the American empire that began from its own colonial birth and ran through the frontier, the American West, Mexico, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and now the Middle East.

    Yeah, giving it to YT good and hard here…..Dunno about referencing both the “frontier” and the “American West”….Maybe a bit redundant, you know, what with the West also being the frontier….Eh, let the editors at TIME (they still have those, right?) decide….Will anybody notice that France (all that territory that they lost in the French and Indian War) and Germany (I seem to remember that Japan and Nazi Germany had some kind of partnership way back when….What was it called…the Axis?) are omitted from the list? Nah, only racist White supremacist cis-het males would notice something like that….

    One war might be a mistake. A long series of wars is a pattern.

    Oooo, yeah, YT’s going to feel that one….Of course, somebody might mention the fact that the USA had two back-to-back wars with Germany in the 20th century….and how many colonial wars did the Angl0-American colonists fight against the French….Let’s see, King William’s War, Queen Anne’s War, King George’s War, The French and Indian War….But nobody remembers those….

    Indians were the original terrorists in the American imagination.

    Remember, any atrocities committed by the Amerinds were strictly imaginary….

    The genocide committed against them by white settlers is Thanksgiving’s ugly side,

    even in France, where images of a half-naked Native American in a feathered headdress can also be found. Centuries later, the latent memory of genocide — or the celebration of conquest — would surface when American GIs called hostile Vietnamese territory “Indian country.”

    It’s funny how when the American media asks immigrants “Who Gets to Be American?” the answer usually turns out to be “My cousin.” Were immigrants alway quite so shamelessly nepotistic?

    Not until their numbers grew too large. It’s a strange kind of non-conquest, no group is able to remake the country for themselves, but all of them can make it into Dubai, terraform it for immigrants and recent immigrants rather than anyone with any roots.

    It’s a world where Ikea, Starbucks and Amazon reign.

    I think it has to be with a lack of empathy for what a native loses. Most immigrants come from places without much immigration, if any. When an immigrant goes to a new place, nobody is passively his kin (Except his countrymen) natives and other (Non co-ethnic) kin alike are just as alien to them (Except perhaps they may have greater language barriers to other non-native immigrants) so if the country is 10% immigrant or 20%, they don’t really notice. To a native, they notice. In the same way libertarians don’t get a sinking feeling when they see something privatised, the immigrant doesn’t understand why the native is so uncomfortable and sad being ethnically displaced (The immigrant themself may not even remember the host country prior to it’s Dubai-ification) in a process he not only is denied any control over (Or even any greater importance of opinion over than an immigrant) but denied the right to talk about. To the immigrant every new immigrant is just as much a stranger as a native, but to a native, every new immigrant is another person they don’t have any kind of kinship to who is actively displacing his ethny in his homeland. Whether they’d say so or not, every new immigrant reduces their sense of belonging.

    On the other hand, I think that more accounts for immigrant apathy, the host country is simply something to be plundered (‘Opened up’). For people like the author, they are aware of how badly it hurts the native ethny because they seem so pleased by it and view it with great importance. Usually born to immigrant parents, they are self-conscious of how ethnocentric they are and project this emotion onto the majority or plurality population. (Trust me, I’ve even seen this, for lack of a better word, twitchiness from people who were half-Italian born in London, even they were defensive of feeling outsiders.)

    Leadership of America??????? You’ve obviously never read a word of American history. The leadership of Jamestown allowed the first shipment of Africans to land and stay in 1619 and continued eagerly importing them till 1808 and thus created America’s biggest, most long lasting problem that will never be solved.

    In the 1640s the leadership were thrilled when Cromwell sent about 75,000 non Anglo Saxon non German Celtic Irish Roman Catholic slaves to the colonies and the British kept sending themuntil the revolution.

    From about 1820 until 1924 the great Anglo Saxon leadership sent recruiters to every non Anglo Saxon non Wasp corner of Europe and even non Protestant eastern Christian countries such as Syria and Lebanon to find cheap labor to as to drive the American Anglo saxons out of work.

    Why do you think the west ward expansion took off after about 1820? It wasn’t the leadership and their non WASP cheap labor immigrants.

    It was the original WASP settlers driven out of the east coast by the WASP founding leadership and their prefence for non WASP cheap labor.

    The WASP leadership since 1619 has always used non WASP immigrants from 1600s Africans and Irish Catholics to the non WASP non Whites immigrant hordes of today against the rest of us WASPs.

    The WASP leadership was in decline from 1900 on. By 1970 they were destroyed and took the rest of us with them.

    Consider, the person most responsible for getting us into WW1 was Sam Untermyer son of German Jewish immigrants. His blackmail of idiot ultra WASP leader president Wilson was the single most motivating factor for Wilson.

    BTW, many of the founders Presidents generals and other leaders weren’t Anglo saxons at all, but Scots and Scots Irish who were ethnically, culturally and religiously pure Scots who only stayed in Ireland for a few decades.

    Mark Twain had it right when he diagnosed Walter Scott disease 170 years ago.

    Don’t blame the African Irish and other non WASP immigrants for the demise of the WASPS. Blame the WASP leadership.

    And I wish you wouldn’t use the word WASP. It’s a perjorative, a hateful slur, no different from dago, fag or wop invented by immigrant Jews in the early 20 th century

    As an immigrant myself, I think today’s immigrants lack one major thing for America — gratitude. Thanks to identity politics, ethnic victimology and open borders pushed by the fifth columnists of the left, today’s immigrants are increasingly coming in with the attitude that they have every right to be in this country and every right to become citizen the moment they landed. American citizenship is no longer seen as a privilege but a right. Because of this attitude, they also no longer see the need to assimilate. This does not bode well for America’s future.

    This lack of gratitude is shown throughout Nguyen’s article. He completely took his citizenship for granted. The day I became a naturalized citizen was one of the happiest and proudest moments of my life. This is the greatest country on earth. I thank God everyday for America, but it is losing its greatness because of leftist policies in the past 5 decades. America needs a 40 year moratorium on immigration to assimilate those already here and are currently citizens.

    For America to survive, we not only need to continue preaching this love it or leave it mantra, but we should enforce it. I have concluded that liberals are people who hate America. Only people who hate America will preach open borders and multiculturalism, they want to see this country destroyed from within.

    And what if we can trace back our lineage this way? I can; maybe we should have a vote on immigration policy among those who can? Given how widely unpopular the current policies are esp among whites I’m guessing it would be a lot more restrictive than it currently is.

    But let’s go with your idea and say that we were mistaken in letting in people after 1763. If so, then it wouldn’t refute halting or reducing immigration now. In fact our country felt before, in the 1920s, that immigration had been too problematic and put an immigration moratorium into effect for 40 years. Maybe we should follow suit? We also are not bound by whatever choice we made in the past, whether it was to open or close borders. We have the capacity to assess what is going on anew and decide. But that decision needs to be by those who are already here not by those who want to come merely because they feel it is better for them. I wouldn’t mind living in the mansions of many Dem leaders.

    The other thing is the majority is atomised and doesn’t act in collective self-interest. Well organised minorities will always exert more influence over issues if they face no competition. Eventually it may be a situation that the mass immigration just never stops.

    In many ways since this kind of immigration is relatively novel outside literal invasion, we only have a few examples of it being curtailed. The 1928 immigration act in the US, the restriction of commonwealth immigrants coming to the UK (Contra conventional wisdom today, Enoch Powell won, his speech and campaigning did get immigration restriction.) and the ‘white Australia’ policy which again contra conventional wisdom restricted the massive Southern and Eastern European immigration as well as Asian.

    And as we are all aware all of these policies were in place for a couple of decades before falling again. We’ve yet to see a situation whereby the voting population becomes so rootless as to stop caring as much about immigration restriction (Even if they are against it, as most more established poorer ethnic communities are, they’ll be given as much option on the matter as business interests can buy and be sufficiently less motivated by the issue as to let it slide) and the entire society collapses into a Dubai-style malaise and becomes a fiefdom of corporate interests that exudes emigrants.

    Amazon recruited East African immigrants heavily with local advertisements and billboards. Hundreds signed up through the Confederation of Somali Community, a nonprofit. For a while, Amazon ran buses to Shakopee from the Minneapolis neighborhood of Cedar-Riverside, known as Little Mogadishu, and the company has spaces at local warehouses dedicated to prayer and the ritual washing custom in Islam.

    Sixty percent of Amazon’s 3,000 workers in the region are East African, Awood estimates, but the group has found only one manager who speaks Somali.

    It’s funny how when the American media asks immigrants “Who Gets to Be American?” the answer usually turns out to be “My cousin.” Were immigrants always quite so shamelessly nepotistic?

    I think in general, immigrants and descendants of recent immigrants have tended to be more liberal on immigration. Most people have a sense that it would be hypocritical for them to oppose immigration in general if they were immigrants themselves or descendants of recent immigrants. This is why you have people invoke their Ellis Island ancestors to explain why they’re liberal on immigration today. This is especially the case because the “official”, mainstream view is that America is a “nation of immigrants”, and that “discrimination” is a bad thing that America opposes. This belief may not be held by readers here, and it may not be correct, but it is the belief held and promulgated by most people. I think this sense of hypocrisy is what drives most immigrants to support immigration in general, rather than “nepotism”, which at any rate could also be said to motivate those against immigration.

    I’ve never understood how someone can hold the view that the land belongs to the natives while simultaneously believing the land belongs everyone.

    Or how non-Native non-Whites think they get a free pass to stay on “occupied” land simply because they aren’t White. Sorry guys, from the Native perspective you are just as much invaders as we are.

    The funniest version of this comes from Latinos who assert that this is “our” land because they are “native” too. But unless the Native portion of their ancestry is from the local tribe, their claim to the land is no more legitimate than any White man’s. It’s like a Frenchman claiming the right to illegally occupy land in Hungary simply because “we are all one White people”. Yeah, that would fly about as well as it would between a mestizo and a Comanche.

    Insofar as anything is a fact in psychiatry, it is a rock-solid, take-it-to-the-bank fact that glamorizing a behavior guarantees copycats. This is the basis of Dr Park Dietz’s advice on the reporting of mass shootings, ignored today on NPR in a factless puff piece which mentioned the word “shooting” multiple times in every sentence, amid emotional blather about how dramatic it all was. Another outrageous mass media attack on public safety is the TV show 13 Reasons Why, the show that wants teenagers to think that committing suicide guarantees that people who ignored you in life will pay attention to you if you kill yourself. I’m not exaggerating, that’s the foundational conceit of the show: if you kill yourself, you will gain superpowers. It’s like there was a show telling kids to drink bleach, but the producers say don’t worry, there’s lots of secial effects and acting illustrating how dramatic and heroic bleach drinking is.

    Well that’s easy. America is a “nation of immigrants”. Japan and Israel are not. Seriously, that’s all there is to it. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, that’s what the “official”, “mainstream” view held by most Americans has been for decades now. This is why all anti-immigration arguments in mainstream discourse are indirect arguments i.e. immigrants bring crime, take jobs, etc. There is no opposition against immigrants qua immigrants, for simply being non-Americans or different because the meta-belief is that America is a “nation of immigrants”.

    Blacks were also slaves, there was discrimination, sexism, etc., in 1790. In other words, America was inconsistent and not fully, “really” American back then, since America is believed by most people today to be a “nation of immigrants” dedicated to equality and opposed to “discrimination”, “racism”, etc. This is why appealing to the 1790 Naturalization Act doesn’t get anywhere today. It’s like appealing to slavery today to justify policies towards blacks. The meta-belief or ideology is that America is a “nation of immigrants” that’s for equality and against racism and discrimination. You have to change the meta-belief or ideology first before making appeals to the past to justify policies today.

    If ever as a teenager i were at all tempted to think that way it ended the minute I actually saw another teenager actually laugh when hearing about some other kid committing suicide. Most people who are assholes to you in life will not suddenly stop being assholes because you made them feel bad by killing yourself.

    The Bolshevik revolution scared people with money and power – scared them enough that they were willing to forego cheap immigrant labor in order to keep out potential revolutionaries.

    “Ever been to Vietnam? I have. The Viets could never, ever build a society like Americans have built. Ever.”

    Unlike what the French did on the continent of Africa — Vietnamese had every opportunity to build a nation state of vibrancy. Instead they chose to overthrow the monarchy, disrupt attempts at democracy building and rejected broader wealth creation via capital markets. Instead they chose to massacre hundreds of thousands many of their best in the communist “clean slate” progroms. The war did destroy Vietnam — Vietnamese communists decimated their future

    What they could have had in 1950 they are now looking to the west to provide.

    A moratorium on all immigration for five years works for me.

    Actually, many people were aware of what was going on at the time, but they were silenced. For many years, the percentage of the population that were “wising up” was shrinking. Once an outrage has been inflicted on the people, the percentage of those who submit to it grows with time.

    Slavery in the English colonies may have first appeared in Jamestown in 1619 but by about 5 years later it was already in New England. The true king of slave trafficking in the US back in the day was the Massachusetts Bay Colony though the history books tend to be a bit forgetful about that part as it doesn’t fit the narrative of red state south evil slavers, blue state north virtuous slavery haters.

    I mean really, what does America represent? Wal-Mart, Wall Street, warmongering, Nascar, BLM, third world cities, hatred of whites, Hebrew supremacy, mass shootings, obesity, McDonald’s, shitty and overpriced health care, Zionism, gay pride parades, radical feminism, forced multiculturalism, the surveillance state, police state, etc. You’re free to love these things, or love America in spite of them, but I just can’t bring myself to do so.

    1. Wal-Mart is an efficient purveyor of retail trade. No one is compelling you to shop ther.

    2. Wall Street: no clue how you fancy a modern economy operates without capital markets

    3. ‘warmongering’ is a nonsense term, not a coherent concept.

    4. NASCAR: if you don’t like motorsports, don’t spend your time on them. If you prefer Le Mans, here it is:

    5. BLM: it’s a lousy political movement, but one indulged in by the few. The Communist Party used to command a quarter of the French electorate, which is an indulgence of the many. You’re not going to be free of ludicrous sectaries by emigrating. You’ll just have ludicrous sectaries yapping at you in some foreign tongue.

    6. Third world cities are to be found in the third world. We have urban slums. Other than Detroit, they don’t resemble 3d world cities in their amenities. The problem there is crime and disorder (about which very few people on these boards care about addressing).

    7. ‘Hebrew supremacy’ is a fantasy.

    8. ‘Mass shootings’ you find abroad as well. They’re more likely to be politically-motivated in those loci, of course.

    9. ‘obesity’ is something you’ll find the world over wherever malnutrition is uncommon

    10. McDonald’s: no one is compelling you to eat there. (And it’s also a global enterprise for a reason).

    11. ‘shitty and overpriced health care’ is a fantasy. You’re not going to get better medical care by emigrating. You might find more rational cost allocation. (A subject in which no one on this board expresses and interest).

    12. ‘Zionism’: no clue why Israel bothers you, or what that has to do with daily life in America.

    13. ‘gay pride parades’: something you will find in every occidental country in the world with a certain threshold of affluence.

    14. ‘Radical feminism’: quite uncommon outside of college campuses, and, again a feature of intellectual life all over northern Europe, in Canada, &c.

    15. “The police state” is a fantasy.

    Your problem, really, is one you encounter when you look in the mirror.

    a healthy national economy needs a national capital market – Wall St is a global capital market

    “Emmanuel Cellar was not part of the “our posterity” mentioned in the Consitution.”

    Of course he was, you are just straight up lying.

    “Bulls**t. The Guatamalans and Nigerians of that time period, as of this time period, are………….Guatamalans and Nigerians. ”

    Who, like Eastern and Southern Europeans, were considered by nativists as being incapable of assimilating.

    “Yes, I am scared of people with face and neck tattoos who cut off their enemies heads with machetes.”

    That would be your imagination running wild yet again, my fellow white American.
