ISSUE OF THE CENTURY
September 22, 2021
The sudden crossing of the Rio Grande river at Del Rio, Texas, by 15,000 Haitians is a reminder that the most prophetic novel of the last half century was the late Jean Raspail’s 1973 book The Camp of the Saints about a million third-worlders landing on the beaches of France, and whites being unable to summon the will to be so racist as to turn them away.
Do American leaders still believe that they have the moral right to protect the territory of the American people by force? Or will we unilaterally disarm in the Scramble for America?
Few recent incidents better sum up elites’ lack of spine than this Reuters headline on Monday evening:

The Washington Post made its top-center headline on Monday:
Homeland security officials will investigate after images show agents on horseback grabbing migrants, Mayorkas says
How dare law enforcement try to grab migrants! Don’t they know migrants are who we are (except that they are also better than us)?
