America Has 14,000 Golf Courses And 6,000 Refugees Waiting At The Border

Khury Petersen-Smith, BuzzFeed Contributor, Posted on December 13, 2018,

… One illustration of the country’s wealth is the number of golf courses it boasts. There are, astoundingly, 14,794 golf courses in the United States, according to the National Golf Foundation — more than twice the number of the roughly 6,000 individuals currently in Tijuana seeking asylum.

Yes, there are enough golf courses in the United States for every adult and child asylum-seeker in Tijuana to have their own entire course — and there would still be nearly 9,000 left over.

My actual name is Yasiel Puig Slim (or “El Chopo” for short) and I am an asylum seeker, so two golf courses are rightfully mine. For my golf courses, I put my dibs down on Pebble Beach (above) and Cypress Point (below).

    So long as we have more ‘nice stuff’ in America than in the most deprived and depraved corners of the third world, we must continue to give to these people. Our country is just one thing we’re giving away.

    Sooner than many people think, our living standards will fall (except of course for the tiny “elite” who rule over us) and then even the dimmest among us will admit that reason had little to do with it.

    You may think that it will be too late to do anything about it then, but the unpleasant fact is that it may already be too late.

    After we give each of these “refugees” his very own golf course, what shall we give to the next cohort, and the one after that? Once they figure out how good the getting is, these thousands will become millions, and then tens of millions, and then hundreds of millions.

    Oh wait, we’re already past the tens of millions part.

    When I step out of the salon … my face feels tight and raw, as if I’ve been slapped. The final batch of cream Sarah had put on my face, the one that smelled like seaweed, hadn’t been quite so pungent in the salon. But as it starts to dry, and as the wind whistles down the street, wafting the scent from cheek to nostril, there it is: semen.

    It’s not just a hint. It’s a proper smell of semen. Later, on the subway, I’m worried it will put someone off their dinner.

  27. I’ve been predicting for some time that sooner or later golf courses, the ultimate symbol of White male privilege, were going to come under attack and here we are.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if soon, groups of people, whether homeless people or asylum seekers, start to set up camp on them. A judge in Hawaii will somehow find that this is *legal. This is a good thing because it will force more normies to face what’s happening to them. Although given their indifference to losing their cities to blacks, I doubt it will make much difference.

    *of course this won’t apply to courses belonging to Jews and the truly wealthy.

    I was pretty sure there were golf course in Honduras itself, and a Google search turned up several. This is on a luxury resort for foreign tourists on an off-shore island (https://www.pristinebayresort.com/golf/the-course/) but there are several on the mainland as well. I’m not sure if they are all for tourists or if the Honduran elite golfs.

    When I first saw this, I had an evil thought whether there was a way to combine golf and migrants. But of course there is, you use the migrants to take low skill jobs at the golf courses for cheaper wages than the local labor force is willing to take.

    From your linked article:

    “While the Trump administration talks incessantly about its favorite villain, the gang MS-13, it says nothing about the origins of the gang. MS-13 was actually incubated on the streets and in the prisons of Southern California, where so many Salvadoran migrants were incarcerated in the 1990s. Washington’s deportation of former prisoners — among other Salvadorans — back to El Salvador was the context for the development of the MS-13.”

    MS-13 started as a self-protection association in California among Salvadoran refugees. Black and Mexican gangs were brutally preying on Salvadorans and they organized in self defense. As so often happens (e.g. Sicilian Mafia), their ethnic self-defense activity expanded into crime.

  33. Golfers are for the most part upper middle class or wealthy Whites.

    Upper middle class and wealthy Whites are the ones who are pushing globalization, financialization and mass immigration.

    The Pewitt Plan to raise the federal funds rate to 10 percent will financially wipe out upper middle class Whites and substantially reduce the wealth and political power of White plutocrats.

    It is the upper middle class and wealthy Whites — mostly born before 1965 — who have benefited the most from the Fed-induced asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate.

    White upper middle class golfers and White plutocrat golfers have made themselves the enemies of the White Core American Patriots.

    Golf is a game cooked up by Scottish snot-nosed scoundrels with sand in their shoes. Golf must be crushed so the European Christian ancestral core of the United States can thrive and prosper.

    In the UK, the rabid immigrationist (both far left and Economist) are now proposing scrapping London’s ‘Green Belt’ in order that it should be built upon to house the immigrants.

    Of course, the Green Belt was established in the first place to counter the ugly ‘urban sprawl’ of 1930s London, (‘Come friendly bombs fall on Slough….’), which did so much to despoil historic Middlsex, Essex, Surrey etc. Formerly the Green Belt was much loved and cherished in a strange ‘cross party’ way, but of course, immigration and The Economist trump all.

    An oft heard complaint is that ‘there’s more acerage of golf course in Surrey than there is built accommodation’ – a supposed crime of which I am highly fond of.

    This is, of course, utterly absurd.

    Sure we have two golf courses for every third-world refugee waiting across the border right now. We do not have two golf courses for every refugee that wants to come here in the next ten years, not to mention their even larger number of descendants.

    The United States does not have an immigration policy. It has a population policy. It is aimed at forcing population growth upwards as fast as possible, so that wages can be driven down and profits up. Remember: it is not the number of immigrants that matters. it is the total net increase in population due to a specific policy that matters. Post-1970 population policy has already increased the US population by about 100 million more than it would have been if the country had been left to its own devices. We don’t have THAT much int he way of spare resources any more. Current policy will add another 100 million in less time, and more after that… We could see the United States turned into another India or Mexico within the span of this enow living.

Whether you hate golf or not, remember that any question about its existence may as well be saying “What do we need all these white men around for, anyway?”

    We’re going to see increasing calls to turn golf courses into affordable housing, parkland, commercial tracts and homeless tent cities. These calls will be couched — at first, and disingenuously — in economic terms (“golf is a dying sport!”), but watch how quickly the mask slips as soon as they have some success.

    More than 25,000 people who came as part of families were snared by Border Patrol agents sneaking across the U.S.-Mexico line, and nearly 5,000 more were encountered at official border crossings where they demanded entry.

    Nearly 5,300 more children traveling without parents were also caught jumping the border, the government said.

    The 25,000 family “units,” as they’re called, are by far a record, far surpassing the heights of the Obama years.

    1) The US is a wealthy country with lots of people.
    2) The number of asylum seekers currently waiting at the border to enter the US is small relative to the number of people in the country.
    3) Therefore immigration will never have a tangible effect on the standard of living of people already in the US.

    “Someone somewhere has nice stuff. They should be made to give it to me.”

    There used to be a better, more interesting leftist project that basically boiled down to a better deal for the nation’s productive working classes.

    The problem with this is that
    A) As the industrial (and technological) revolution rolled on it generate huge gains in material output and the productive working classes indeed got a pretty great deal. Prosperity–food, housing, shelfter, transport, entertainment, medical care– that was superior to anything anyone had previously experienced.

    and

    B) The actually productive working classes turn out to look … pretty much like the former rulers–pale males. The “people left behind”–often of a different hue–were being left behind because they weren’t particularly productive. Old-timey working class leftism wasn’t going to engage the issues of race and “gender” inequality and build a nice fringy coalition to vote for the state party.

    Instagram is “modelling” type porn. Tumblr infamously is identified with hair-coloring tattooed wierdos (hence “tumblristas”). It is possible that the origin of this was a 4chan campaign attacking social media models who charged money for “premium” photos and then never got around to reporting the extra income. 4channers reporting selfie whores to the tax police is not only pretty close to the stereotype of the sexually frustrated male pitted against the pedestalled bimbo, it happens to show the basement losers in a favorable light.

    It is true that the southern wall will not end illegal immigration. It is true that illegal immigration is less of a problem than legal immigration. But the wall will do a couple of things. First, it will reinforce the idea that the USA has borders. Second, it would be a direct victory for our side and a punch in the gut to the globalists. Third, it will materially affect illegal immigration. Fourth, it will materially affect the flow of drugs into this nation.

    All in all it won’t solve all of our problems or even most of them. But it is a great start and would be a highly symbolic victory for anti-globalists.

    According to a new study, the world’s fertility rate dropped by nearly 50% between 1950 and 2017. The study notes that this could be due to people getting married later and having children later. Some countries have offered incentives to reverse this trend, such as paid family leave, but they haven’t had much of an effect. However, in that same time period, the global population has tripled and it is estimated that it will hit nearly 10 billion by 2050. Forget the baby boom — we’re living in the baby bust!

    Whoops, “eminent domain,” a simple typo, no pun intended.

    Better yet, a wildlife reserve.

    Wildlife is one of the problems you have to deal with when you have border walls. For instance, there are bears in the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National park in Texas that migrate across the Rio Grande from time to time (illegals?). At one point they had abandoned the Chisos Mountains, but then years later they returned from Mexico.

    Although this example isn’t the greatest ecological problem in the world, it illustrates that borders meant for people affect animals also. Maybe those naturalists at the Department of the Interior that got reassigned to accounting from climate change could be reassigned to keep track of border animals and how they might be accommodated without leaving holes in the wall for illegals to get through.

    In the case of Big Bend, however, we obviously aren’t going to build a wall in the middle of the Rio Grande, going through a scenic spot like Santa Elena Canyon. The best spot for a wall in that area would be several kilometers in on the Mexican side, which is fairly desolate and unpopulated. There are several places on the border where the border itself is not amenable to a wall due to topography or natural properties. This could be accommodated by a bilateral commission that would agree to places where border controls would be pushed into one country or the other, or even to a treaty to cede little bits of terrirtory to the other country. If the wall doesn’t track the border exactly, you would have defacto no-mans-lands where citizens of the country that owned the land would have difficulty entering the land.

    In the second of Mike Davis’s books on Los Angeles, Ecology of Fear, the last chapter is a rundown on all the novels in which Los Angeles has met some sort of apocalypic end, from Aldus Huxley’s Ape and Essence to the book said to have inspired the Oklahoma City bombing, The Turner Diaries.

    I guess because so many creative people work in Los Angeles, it does tend to end up in fictional works. I’ve started to notice that Los Angeles is also often the subject of pre-apocalyptic extrapolations from current social trends by novelists. I just finished People’s Republic by Kurt Schlichter in which the U.S. has split in two and blue Los Angeles is shown to have become walled off into areas for the elites and the deplorables, enforced by an police force made up of released ex-cons, and with deplorables in uniforms brought in to do the dirty work in elite areas, and occasionally committing crimes there. After that I decided to reread Neal Stephenson’s breakthrough novel Snow Crash, which I last read when it first came out in 1992. He has Los Angeles in a similar state, with walled-off gated communities with their own constitutions, border patrols, and so on, and with all the major freeways and streets privatized. When the freeways become too crowded, the state just bulldozes down some old residential areas to build more.

    Are there any more novels that speculate on vibrant Los Angeles after things progress out a little further?

    Scene 2: Moonlit night, outside Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest public game reserve. Two black men slink through tall buffalo grass on the trail of a rhino. One shoots, the massive beast falls, and the shooter’s partner rapidly slices off its horn. The two men then flee on foot, leaving behind a grotesquely mutilated but possibly still living rhino. That horn will net enough money to buy a car and TV, as well as send their children to high school. And so they run, racing through grasslands where hippos and elephants frequently kill foraging humans, as lion and leopard prowl behind rocks. Their goal: getting over one of the great fences that delineate public and private land before white mercenary soldiers with night-vision goggles hunt them down and kill them.

    Officer A. says with admiration that the poachers are extremely fit and adds that he’d have more success if the authorities would let him hunt them with dogs. “If you can find the guy with three hours left to the gate on foot, you can catch him. But they run. If we had dogs, the guy gets torn apart.”

    You can only hunt if you got the money. Which makes sense, resource-wise:

    Tribes whose ancestors would kill a Cape buffalo whenever a chief died in order to bury him in its hide cannot afford the hunting licenses trophy hunters buy for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many can’t afford the $5 daily adult entry fee to Kruger park.

    Gandhi’s early views on Africans were pretty much what you’d expect from a British subject who got his law degree in Victorian era London, or, for that matter, what you will hear from many Indian immigrants in America, privately, in the present day.

    He seems to have made common cause with the African Native National Congress towards the end of his stay in South Africa, though.

    * In an open letter to the Natal Parliament in 1893, Gandhi wrote:

    “I venture to point out that both the English and the Indians spring from a common stock, called the Indo-Aryan. … A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir.”

    * At a speech in Mumbai in 1896, Gandhi said that the Europeans in Natal wished “to degrade us to the level of the raw kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness.”

    *…Gandhi wrote in 1904 that the council “must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population and it is an undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen.”

    * In response to the White League’s agitation against Indian immigration and the proposed importation of Chinese labour, Gandhi wrote in 1903:

    “We believe also that the white race in South Africa should be the predominating race.”

    https://blog.dilbert.com/2017/05/03/pre-bribing-a-president/

    And the more money they make off of global contacts, the longer our former public officials influence current public policy, rendering our votes ineffective. After holding high public office, most of the politicians in our Republic used to retire into private life, a modest private life in cases where they did not enter office rich.

    When today’s politicians make spectacular bank off of global contacts, voters have zero change of changing policies that benefit politician-enriching global Rolodex contacts.

    This profiteering is morally okay since all of these high-ranking politicians have children and grandchildren to consider, unlike George Washington and James Madison, two childless top leaders of a then-big-R-Republic who did not need to consider their aristocratic DNA lineage when making decisions about the pitfalls of global profiteering.

    Hillary’s summer home fetched a cool $29 million.

    https://dailycaller.com/2017/08/30/bill-hillary-finally-sell-hamptons-mansion/

    Keeping in mind that the ultra-professional candidates for our nation’s highest office run on the emotional theme of their private lives—their children & grandchildren—like they were 18th century kings and queens producing royal heirs, that one home sale should be enough to keep Grandma Clinton’s intergenerational wealth intact long past the great-grand-kids’ level, when the presidential DNA content will dwindle to single digits. That much money might even keep up generations in style, right down to the decimal level—to Warren / Native-American DNA levels.

    Think what the $60-million Obama book deal will do for future aristocratic generations.

    In the fake-feminist era of aristocratic dual-earner power couples, wealth from the few good-paying jobs with benefits is concentrated in the top 20% of US households, we no longer have a middle class and our small-r republic-in-name-only has “come a long way, baby,” right back to the aristocratic past.

    It is magnified 100-fold in our political class.

    How ‘bout a few cake crumbs from political aristocrats for their pleasingly subservient illegal-alien servants who can afford to work for low pay, undercutting underemployed and out-of-the-labor-force citizens, because of their pay-per-birth welfare and progressive-tax-code welfare?

    Hillary’s $29-million mansion alone—not counting her other mansions—could definitely house a month’s worth of illegal-alien border crossers. If she meant a word of her weepy-eyed campaign-trail rhetoric, she would be housing a bunch of illegal aliens right now, much less some of New York City’s large, native-born-citizen homeless population.

    Rent for a one-room apartment is increasingly unaffordable for non-welfare-eligible citizens of the USA———-i.e. for non-womb-productive, single-breadwinner citizens who do not qualify for free housing, free EBT food beyond three months every three years, monthly cash assistance and up to $6,431 in refundable child-tax-credit cash, when staying under the income limits for welfare by working part-time / temp jobs as a single-breadwinner parent.

    Thanks to mansion-sporting, aristocratic politicians buying the votes of the welfare-eligible with more welfare cake crumbs, employers increasingly mold their job offerings to the needs of the welfare-assisted crowd of citizens & noncitizens who can afford to accept low pay in temp and part-time jobs, hence the upsurge in homelessness.

    How many homeless US citizens would be sleeping indoors, rather than in the freezing cold, if politicians’ mansions were available as shelters?

    It’s a popular takeaway item in UK delivered by child rapists driving taxis.

    You’ve willfully misconstrued the obvious intent behind my not using the term “Latinos.” I reject it precisely because it misleadingly suggests that a white Chilean of European stock is no different from a mestizo or indio from Guatelmexico.

    I do concede I probably should have left South America out of the matter altogether, since it’s mostly only North Americans (from Mexico and points south) who revel in destroying wilderness.

    I’m of the mindset that noticing patterns is fundamental to survival and prosperity, and that Mohammadans (particularly those of Arabic stock) commit far more terrorism – damned near all of it, anymore – than any other group of persons on the planet. Conversely, Europeans and their diaspora commit vanishingly small amounts of terrorism.

    This knowledge is useful; it can be applied by serious persons to make their nations safer. Unfortunately, because too many think like you, every few weeks another Mohammadan in Europe or North America kills a large number of people, many of them usually Europeans.

    Khury’s people earned what they have. Unlike whites who got it by stealing and white privilege.

    You see, people like Khury have transistors, cell phones, computers, houses built with modern engineering, modern plumbing etc. because of their own hard work. Whereas white people earned NONE of those things and would absolutely not have stuff like cars or airplanes without POC.

    “Oath of Fealty” is Todos Santos, I think, and it’s actually a high-security apartment complex (they were going for a castle-equivalent maybe?) rather than a prison, the “rather” depending on how much difference that makes to you.

    Note to UR: I’m not JackOH, this almost got autoposted under that name somehow.

    Do you enjoy being a snippy little girl who stomps her feet?

    “I reject it precisely because it misleadingly suggests that a white Chilean of European stock is no different from a mestizo or indio from Guatelmexico.”

    All of the following people were born and reside in South America. That’s the most important point here. Regarding “white Chileans of European stock”, they were not indigenous to the continent. So how did they get there? For what purpose? Were they welcome or were they viewed as interlopers?

    “I do concede I probably should have left South America out of the matter altogether…”

    Exactly.

    “since it’s mostly only North Americans (from Mexico and points south) who revel in destroying wilderness.”

    No, that would be nations from Europe who spoiled the land they seized during the Age of Imperialism, as well as major corporations today. Those companies are usually controlled by (gasp) white people. Because high IQ.

    “I’m of the mindset that noticing patterns is fundamental to survival and prosperity, and that Mohammadans (particularly those of Arabic stock) commit far more terrorism – damned near all of it, anymore – than any other group of persons on the planet.”

    They are called Muslims, not Mohammadans. Furthermore, when it comes to American Muslims, the overall numbers of terrorist attacks are few. Lil’ Abdul down your block must really scare you when you walk past his house and he is playing cops and robbers with his fellow white friends.

    “Conversely, Europeans and their diaspora commit vanishingly small amounts of terrorism.”

    Debatable.

    “Unfortunately, because too many think like you, every few weeks another Mohammadan in Europe or North America kills a large number of people, many of them usually Europeans.”

    OK, hotshot, what evidence are you able to provide that that Muslims in North America (Canada, the United States, Mexico) are “every few weeks killing a large number of people”? Cite your sources.

    Simply, I guess, from what I read, Ike was an organizer and war takes lots of planning and logistics. The Allies were willing to accept horrendous losses to establish a second front. Thank you for your reply.

    Think what the $60-million Obama book deal will do for future aristocratic generations.

    how many of those books will end up at the Dollar Tree?

  212. What an absolutely stupid argument by the “author”. Even accepting the quasi-Marxist premise (which I don’t), between them, Mexico and Honduras (where the caravan started) have 207 golf courses. Start there first; I’d bet if those were developed you could easily house the “refugees seeking asylum” and then some.

    In the third world, the residences and playgrounds of the wealthy have armed guards and walls.
