Boring white-bread Iceland is finally being enriched by Diversity. From Iceland Review:

Nine in Custody, Murder Investigation Ongoing
Jelena Ćirić
February 22, 2021

Police are now working to map the movements of nine men that are in custody in connection to a murder committed in Reykjavík earlier this month. …

On February 13, Albanian national and resident of Iceland Armando Beqirai was shot to death outside his home in East Reykjavík. Armando was in his 30s and leaves behind an Icelandic wife and young child, who were in the home when the incident occurred. Eight of the nine individuals in custody in relation to the crime are foreign citizens and one is Icelandic.

The men are all in isolation in Hólmsheiði prison, which has never housed as many prisoners in isolation in its nearly five years of operation.

  1. My daughter religiously watches the Carmen Sandiego series on Netflix. When the crime capers moved to Iceland, they humorously showed an empty Reykjavik jail and a cop confused when confronted with a crime.

    One wonders if all the Viking viciousness was bred and socialized out of Scandinavia in a matter of centuries by Christianity, a huge argument for HBD, it seems. Either that or the Vikings were simply brutally efficient socialists who channeled their energies outward for a half millennium, then went inward? Whatever the case, no paradise lasts long when the rest of the world is invited.

  2. Iceland’s small but fairly agreeable population was also excellent for conducting genetic studies, since they were fairly homogeneous and often compliant with any directions given. Sounds like in both counts that will be difficult in the future.

    Can we assume the Icelandic wife is the reason Armando was allowed entry into Iceland? How many Albanians have they let into the country and are they getting even more vibrant than that in the immigration policy?

  7. …was shot to death outside his home in East Reykjavík.

    Does not compute. When did you figure you’d ever read a sentence fragment like this?

    Eight of the nine individuals in custody in relation to the crime are foreign citizens and one is Icelandic.

    It’s not the NY Times, or I’d wonder, but this writer probably means that other suspect is actually an Icelandic person by ethnicity. I wonder whether this murder was personal. Why you need to hire 8 Albanians is another question. Since the guy who was shot wasn’t a citizen of Iceland either, but just a “resident”, I guess that the “past to citizenship” over there is a bit slippery, on the ice and all..

  8. Who in their right mind would invite Albanians to come?

    Seriously, the sane people in the West should pull together and provide a territory for all the white people who are unhappy with their own nation’s people and culture and love “diversity” to go live in … and invite all the diversity they want.

    Those people are a cancer–a noisy cancer–upon the West.

    Maybe we could buy someplace in Siberia from Putin? Or maybe we just designate Iceland and let the Icelanders settle wherever else they like. (Sacrifice one nation to save the rest.)

    Something.

  10. As our gracious host has taught us, the global Ruling Class is committed to “inviting the world”, so we dirt people will have to roll with it. They are after all our Rulers.

    Old World Europeans are being invaded by Arabs and Africans. Muslims are triumphalist and committed to religious and societal domination. Africans are, well, Africans. Europeans in the Old World will only survive in Central and Eastern Europe. Western Europe is done.

    Europeans in the diaspora (i.e. outside the Old World) have a big advantage over the relict in the Old World. We only have to deal with Christianized Latins and New World aborigines. Since I have to be invaded, I’d take our invaders over theirs.

  11. Iceland has a population of less than 500,000 people. That’s literally fewer people than many moderate-sized cities in the U.S.

    A 9-person gang in a moderately-sized city can be a major source of crime if not caught. In housing projects in the U.S.., a 9 or 10 person gang can basically run the entire operation as their own personal fiefdom.

    And if a gang is in anyway organized, it can cause huge problems in the small population beyond merely low-level drug dealing and shakedowns.

    Albanians have a reputation of having organized crime. Sicilians and other Italians get all the headlines here, but Albanians are no slouches. It’s just we had more Italians immigrate here than Albanians.

    Iceland’s declaration of war on Judaism
    Iceland’s authorities might as well hang a large sign in the arrivals terminal at Reykjavik airport saying, “No Jews or Muslims allowed.”

    By Michael Freund
    February 24, 2018

    …In 1853, Iceland’s parliament turned down a request by the king of Denmark to allow Jews to reside in the country. While this was reversed two years later, that was only because Iceland wanted to entice Jewish merchants to immigrate in order to boost the economy.

    Nearly a century later, in 1938, when Austrian Jews were trying to flee in the wake of the rise of Nazism, Iceland refused to allow them entry, callously leaving them to their fate.

    And as Dr. Vilhalmur Vilhalmsson noted in a comprehensive 2004 paper entitled, “Iceland, the Jews and anti-Semitism” published in Jewish Political Studies Review, “With regard to the Holocaust, Iceland is not a blank page.” There were Icelanders in the Waffen SS who fought for Germany, while others served in concentration camps; the son of Iceland’s first president was a member of the SS who escaped prosecution after the war. In his paper, Vilhalmsson also discloses that in the late 1930s, Icelandic officials went so far as to offer to pay the cost for the expulsion of Jews from its territory to Germany.

    This shit’s been going on since you know when.

    The Spanish Inquisition (William Thomas Walsh, Isabella of Spain, Sheed and Ward, 1935, pp. 258-249)

    In medieval Spain the Jews came nearer to building a New Jerusalem than at any time or place since their dispersion after the Crucifixion. Had they succeeded—and several times they came perilously near success—they might conceivably have managed, with Mohammedan aid, to destroy the Christian civilization of Europe…

    They were not at first persecuted by the Christians; but, after the discovery that they were plotting to bring the Arabs from Africa for the overthrow of the Gothic kingdom…

    That they played an important part in bringing the Saracens from Africa in 709 is certain. In the invading army there were many African Jews. Everywhere the Spanish Jews opened the gates of cities to the conquerors, and the Moslems rewarded them by turning over to them the government of Granada, Seville and Cordoba. “Without any love for the soil where they lived, without any of those affections that ennoble a people, and finally without sentiments of generosity,” says Amador de los Rios “they aspired only to’ feed their avarice and to accomplish the ruin of the Goths; taking the opportunity to manifest their rancour, and boasting of the hatreds that they had hoarded up so many centuries.”

    The Viking Age was over by the Norman conquest of England. After that Scandinavian countries were pretty similar to the rest of Europe in terms of their societal structure (monarchy, Catholic, married with other nobles of Europe).

    Scandinavia has the benefit of having few external and pertinent threats. Denmark was always at risk against the Germans and Finland shared a frontier with Russia, but for the most part Scandis attacked each other. When they cut back on that (Protestant solidarity?) they had little reason to be warlike or aggressive. You can bring up the occupation of Norway and Iceland by the Nazis and British respectively, but those paled in comparison to the existential threats many other nations of Europe constantly faced with powerful neighbors. Iceland especially doesn’t have to worry about a barbarian horde so they can peacefully develop and throw off the belligerence and martial prowess more at-risk nations had to always maintain for their safety.

    It seems as if all the references are to citizenship, not ethnicity. So the “Icelandic wife” (the victim’s wife) and the 9th criminal may both be ethnically non-Icelandic, but have been naturalized.

    Iceland doesn’t appear to be in the worst situation, as immigrants go. The list of foreign-born residents is mostly of people from solidly European countries. The three largest groups are Poles (19,210), Danes (3,891) and Lithuanians (2,906). Americans are the fourth largest group of foreigners (2,386).

    The list of major religions doesn’t even mention Islam. Of countries that have sent more than 300 immigrants, all are either European or Asian. Of Iceland’s 61,400 immigrants, 47,000 (~77%) are from Europe, the USA, or Canada and 5,400 (9%) are from Asia. Another 9,200 are from countries that have sent less than 300 immigrants. Perhaps a lot of those are black or Muslim, perhaps not.

    “Eight, including one Icelander, are in custody in connection with a police investigation into the murder in Rauðagerði last weekend. The eighth was sentenced to custody today, but he is one of two people who were arrested in police operations yesterday. The custody of Lithuania, who was arrested shortly after the murder, expires today. Police will request continued custody of him. The men are in their forties and fifties and are from Spain, Albania and Lithuania, among others. Some have just arrived in the country but others have lived here for a long time. “

    https://www.ruv.is/frett/2021/02/19/atta-i-gaesluvardhaldi-vegna-mordsins-i-raudagerdi

    Apparently some of the investigations are in Selfoss, a town in the south some forty miles from the capital.

    I remember when the gangsters in London were all either Brits, Maltese or Jamaican.

    https://www.standard.co.uk/hp/front/a-new-brand-of-fear-7221056.html

    The growth of the Albanian criminal fraternity has been causing unease among police forces since around 1995 when, along with genuine asylum seekers from Kosovo, some young men entered the country with their sights on the rich pickings of the capital’s drugs and vice scenes. Since then, they have taken more than 80 per cent of London’s sex industry – and experts estimate that about 75 per cent of all heroin sold in the UK will pass through Albanian hands at some point on its journey to the junkie on the street.

    Albanians had control of 70 per cent of the drug trade in Germany and Switzerland by 1995. In criminal terms, it was a meteoric rise.

    By this time, an influx of Kosovar Albanians had already arrived in the UK. Within this mostly lawabiding grouping were sharp and ruthless men, the vanguard of a criminal invasion that was to take London by storm.

    According to a report by the National Criminal Intelligence Service, Albanians have staged a bloodless coup in Soho in the past 18 months – buying out the owners of strip joints, sex shops and brothels. A Standard investigation in July showed that girls from eastern Europe were being tricked or kidnapped and smuggled into Britain, where they were forced to work as prostitutes after being sold and resold to Albanian pimps for about £5,000.

    Good old Tony Blair and NATO, something else we can thank them for. The bomb-enforced removal of Kosovo from Serbia was a crime for which we (but alas not Blair or his allies) are still paying the price.

    Aside from former dictator Enver Hoxha and King Zog, she is the only Albanian I have heard of. They are notoriously clannish and infamous for the vendettas. Of course if you lived in their neighborhood you’d be pretty crazy yourself.

    London is probably much safer. Though in the early 90s some of the more risky investment advisors were recommending Albania for it’s (now) cheap beach front real estate.

    They are actually about 25% Scottish/Irish paternally (50% maternally). Quite a few founding males were from the British Isles.

    I think that’s because it was common among Norse and Celtic chieftains to exchange young males from noble families as hostages to secure peace and forge alliances. The Celts in Iceland were not all slaves. Gaelic given names were fairly common amongst the literate class, probably because Irish were more literate than the Norse when Iceland was settled, and there were already Irish monks living there when the vikings found the place.

    Vikings were a small group of seafaring explorers, some marauding pirates, who existed for ~150 years in Middle Ages c. 9th-10th centuries AD. Noble Savage-romanticized raiding, raping, pillaging Odin-worshiping pagan Vikings existed even less time. ‘Tis an aberration historians still can’t explain: why some restless men in south Scandinavia (in 9th century, Finno-Ugric tribes were still the main populations across virtually all Sweden except southern tip) suddenly started setting sail raiding all around; then just as abruptly Viking ‘diaspora’ quietly settled down in their new homelands. The word only a learned borrowing in 19th century English from Old Norse ‘víkingr’ as ‘Vikings’ experienced romanticist historical revival.

    Vikings were traveling seafarers, not sedentary in modern Scandinavian countries: descendants of Vikings can be found all across Europe whither they traveled/settled (sometimes in violent rapey fashion mixing with prior locals). By 11th century Vikings became Latin Christianized Normans who conquered and set up ‘civilized’ Christian kingdoms in England and Sicily; some Vikings settled Kiev—Kievan Rus—some became Greek Orthodox Christian Byzantine Romans, formed Varangian Guard at Hellenic Constantinople; some settled as Latin Roman Catholic Christians in Italy/Sicily in aforementioned Norman kingdoms. (Were the Normans still Vikings?)

    Under influence of mother Thjóðhildr, Leif Eriksson was Christian (to chagrin of father Erik the Red); the Norsemen who ‘discovered’ Vinland (now Newfoundland) had Latin-speaking Roman Catholic clergy on board their ships for Catholic Mass and rites. (Were these seafaring Norsemen still Vikings?)

    This silly widespread myth that Vikings were typical of what all or most people in modern Scandinavian countries were generally like for all or most of their history until now is as fictitious as horns on Viking helmets.

    (Also, Iceland is not technically Scandinavia—’tis an island settled by a variety of peoples in seas far off from the Scandinavian Peninsula. Like Finland, Iceland is more properly termed a Nordic country together with Sweden, Norway, Denmark.)

    This is a case of diversity lowering crime rates.

    Nature doesn’t lie. Scandinavian women suck, that’s why Icelandix are only 36% Scandinavian by matrilineal descent. When Scando men are given a choice they go for other types of women. You know, women who don’t look like this:

    Previous analyses of the matrilineal ancestry of contemporary Icelanders have provided estimates of 62.5–66% admixture from Scotland and Ireland, with the remaining 34–37.5% coming from Scandinavia [1],[9].

    Iceland’s homicide rate is less than 1 per 100,000. The USA’s homicide rate is over 5 per 100,000, which is higher than not only Iceland but also most countries in Europe, save perhaps for a few really shitty ones (say hi to Albania).

    The USA is also more diverse than every country in Europe, by far.

    Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are extremely homogeneous and have extremely low homicide rates. Central America is pretty homogeneous and has an extremely high homicide rate. Ditto for much of Africa.

    Diversity is really just a nonsense word. What we are talking about is different groups of people with different propensities to commit crime. It’s like saying I’m making spaghetti with “diverse ingredients.” By diverse ingredients do I mean basil, or Drano? It kind of matters.

    Iceland literally had like one murder a year until a few years ago.

    From 2001-2017, Iceland had 36 murders total, or an average of 2.11 per year. So it wouldn’t be too hard to look into how many involved immigrants and minorities.

    A really gruesome from 2017 involved the murder of a 20-year-old Icelandic girl by a Greenlandic sailor, who appears to be at least part Inuit.

    Another 2017 murder was committed by a Yemeni asylum seeker who murdered a Latvian woman after stalking her.

    Yet another 2017 murder involved several members of the Reykjavik underworld, some of whom were natives but two of whom were Polish.

    Three of the four murders committed in Iceland in 2017 were perpetrated by foreigners, though one of them with help from natives. The fourth murderer was apparently a native Icelander who murdered an Albanian.

    The US murder rate of 5 per 100,000 represents a huge decline from the 20th century peak of roughly 10 per 100,000, back when the country was 80% white. The US murder rate declined sharply in the 1990s despite the massive influx of Mexicans and central Americans, and a relative increase in the black population.

    90% white America still had a homicide rate of ~8-9 per 100,000 in the teens and thirties.

    I think we know who the first non-white person to settle in “white-bread” Iceland was.

    Hans Jonathan was the son of the Danish man Hans Gram and the black woman Emilia Regina. In 1784, Hans was born as a slave on a sugar plantation on the island of Saint Croix, which was then part of the Danish West Indies. He escaped the island and moved to Iceland. In the 1820s, Hans was married to the Icelandic woman Katrín Antoníusdóttir and they had two children who lived into adulthood. There are approximately 800-900 of their descendants alive today.

    A 2018 genetic study by Anuradha Jagadeesan, et al. entitled “Reconstructing an African Haploid Genome from the 18th Century” (published in Nature Genetics vol. 50, no. 2 on pages 199-205) tested the autosomal DNA of 182 of Hans’ living descendants in order to reconstruct Hans’ mother’s genome as fully as possible. They succeeded in identifying about 38% of it. Hans’ mother had genetic affinities to the peoples of Nigeria, Benin, and Cameroon.

    One of Hans’ descendants, an Icelandic woman, tested her DNA with 23andMe, which reported that she carries 1.2% “West African” DNA.

    Oh, so you’re a parody account. Thanks for finally telling me.

    As for the decline in murder rates, we have seen large declines before (the last time without much increase in diversity) as your own graph clearly shows. The changing age profile of the population, improvements in medical treatment of shooting victims (so that they don’t become murder victims), better police tactics, a better understanding of criminal behavior, stricter or laxer penalties imposed by judges, legalized abortion, changing patterns of drug use, and even the elimination of lead additives in paint and gasoline – all of these could have had a major impact on overall murder rates.

    Hell, maybe it’s just that so many people got air conditioning and decided to stay home rather than go out and kill people. It’s easy to forget that 30 years ago there were still a lot of people out there with shitty or no air conditioning in their homes. Maybe murder rates declined because of the increasing use of CGI in movies? Netscape came out right at the same time as murder rates stopped dropping. Perhaps it was all the online porn that did it?

    To pick out one trend – the increasing diversity of the US populations – that simply happened to be occurring at the same time as the decline in murder rates and suggest that must have been the cause of that decline is absurd.

    Well, white nationalists have said that America would become increasingly violent as it got less white. It hasn’t. There’s been a sustained decline in homicide rates since the diversity ramped up in the ’90s. Diversity has been the single most profound change to American society since the ’90s, so it’s a good candidate.

    It was also predicted that the huge number of millennials coming of age in the 2000s would result in a crime increase, but there wasn’t one. That diversity could accompany a crime decrease, despite a demographic situation in the 2000s that should have been conductive to crime, should be even more discouraging to white nationalist.

    Diversity seems to be the best candidate for the decrease in violence in our society since the ’90s, along with gun control. I have no doubt that this will be endorsed by every echelon of higher education in the world, as the crime rate in America continues to decrease, so attempting to disagree with me is absolutely futile, and without foresight. The establishment will hammer it home that diversity decreased crime.

    Since the white trashtionalist crime argument is an utterly hopeless cause, it’s advisable to stop beating a dead horse with this fantasy of accomplishing anything by trying to revive it. It was dead on arrival. The cops didn’t care, judges didn’t care, nobody cared.

    Seriously, the sane people in the West should pull together and provide a territory for all the white people who are unhappy with their own nation’s people and culture and love “diversity” to go live in … and invite all the diversity they want.

    Those people are a cancer–a noisy cancer–upon the West.

    Yes, I’ve thought something similar for a long time.

    There’s clearly a divide. Amongst every race, ethnicity, culture, etc, there are those who care about preserving the group, probably historically a healthy majority, and a likely minirity of those who simply don’t care, lack the discipline, are irresponsible, etc., and are immune to being shamed. With the latter, it’s always the same mantra, ”Where all the same’ they say and it’s ‘love’.

    The world’s a big place though. Long ago the people’s of the world should of designated a place with ample resources and territory for folks like these (ie those who don’t care about these things) and amply document the facts about plentiful resources.

    Documenting this would not be for their sakes, as these people strike me as often being delusional, and they will probably be screaming that ‘you’re trying to kill us all,’ from start to finish. [No, it’s simply having them live what they were attempting to force upon everyone else by default, ie ‘walk the talk’, without parasiting on others.] Documenting it would be for the responsible folks sakes, in case hundreds of years from now they might get worn down and start to half believe these people’s delusions about ‘killing us all’.

    They could call this specially designated place ‘New Pangea’.

    If everyone’s the same (ie ‘equal’) as they say, then there should be no problem. They’d have to raise their own kids there and not dump them on the grandparents.

    However, the results of wanton mixing are known. These places are in Brazil and are called ‘favelas’.

    As things have stood it’s not been fair to the responsible people (as stated, probably the majority) who do care about preserving the various races and ethnicities.

Which might have high crime but have not abolished the cops and allows concealed carry. And crime is mostly just black people. No one wants to live among, or near them. And revealed preference shows that White liberals live in the most lily White places with as few blacks as possible. Vermont, the Hamptons, New Hampshire, are not known for the hoods. Or keeping it real.

    The real play is after all the Whites have emptied out in NYC and it turns into Detroit plus. The Chinese are buying up real estate cheap there. And with the Chinese take-over of America, will they tolerate blacks or will they simply put them in Uighur style concentration camps and have a kindler, gentler extermination? Judging by their ruthless history, I’d say the latter.

    There is a recent DNA study of the so-called Vikings that indicates quite a cosmopolitan ethnic mix in them.

    John Alite, former associate of the Gambino crime family and childhood friend of John Gotti Jr, is Albanian. Despite his friendship with Gotti, he was reputedly involved in a conspiracy to kill him.

    Our police is quiet about the investigation. The Icelandic guy in custody is probably close to the top of the food chain in our illegal drug trade. He has been throwing lot of money around in the past without any signs of income. The word in the street is he is also a snitch for the police. The word got out (police report leaked on the web) and put him in bad position, and apparently someone had to die in retaliation. That’s the speculation at least.

    What is unusual about this murder is it’s the first in decades where someone is killed with a handgun. And with silencer to boot. Many of my fellow countrymen take this as a sign of loss of innocence, so to speak. We have plenty of rifles and shotguns, but gun ownership is all about hunting and sport. Very few handguns.

    The Albanians are mostly doorkeepers/working in nightclubs. How the got here I don’t know. But Iceland is part member of the E.U – so our borders are wide open to E.U. citizens. Albania isn’t (yet) member of the E.U so I am not sure how this works.

    Iceland is incredibly pozzed. Like all wealthy, liberal areas, they don’t (until now) suffer the consequences of their beliefs, because hardly anyone wants to immigrate to Iceland. But in the coming era, even the statistical margin of error will be enough to overcome their complete inability to deal with reality.

    Iceland is a place that has institutionalized the very worst of progressivism — the traditional family is all but destroyed — and manages to continue blithely on thinking it’s doing great, because it is full of sweet, wonderful Icelandic people who could live under virtually any social or political institution and make it work, because they’re just nice people.

    Iceland was founded in 874 from Norway, then a land of small kings ruling areas the size of a county. One of them, King Harald Fairhair (Harald Harfagr), successfully unified the country into a centralised monarchy like Denmark and Sweden. His defeated opponents continued the war from the northern and western isles of Scotland and Ireland, and only left for Iceland, discovered by accident in 860, after Harald inflicted a naval defeat on them in 872. It is true that Norwegian Vikings were sometimes pirates, but it is untrue that the first Icelandic women were slaves acquired by raiding.

    Actually Iceland has very strict immigration policy and almost all fugitives are sent back. Often against loud outcries from our SJW class. So it’s almost impossible for third worlders to immigrate here. If memory serves me less than 50 people from the middle east came here during the fugitive crisis following the Syrian war when countries like Germany accepted million or more.

    However, our borders are open to EU citizens. Our SJW class is loud in our media, but it knows it has very limited support to open the borders among the public. And since our business class has easy access to cheap labor from Poland there is zero pressure to ease immigration policy to other parts of the world.

    The Reykjavik Metropolitan area continues to see increasing levels of petty crime and minor assaults directly connected to the increasing number of tourists it attracts. Reykjavik also has higher than average (for Iceland) reports of domestic violence, sexual assaults, automobile theft, vandalism, property damage, and other street crimes, which is typical for any large urban area. These numbers are still very low when compared to the United States or Europe. Police attribute most of these crimes to juvenile delinquents, drug users, immigrants, and tourists. According to the police, the rise in pickpocketing is a direct result of an influx of immigrants/asylum seekers coupled with the increasing presence of tourists.

    It’s noticeable that there’s an inverse correlation between domestic pacifism and external aggressiveness. Germans and Japanese both are very peaceful — domestically. Conversely, the generally isolationist United States of our first one hundred and fifty years waged few wars in earnest against external enemies — and settled its domestic disputes with everything up to cannon and machine guns.

    Per your usual, you can’t process information; no understanding of survivorship bias; no understanding of mean, median, and mode; just repeat a set of bromides.

    If Iceland stays nice, it will be in spite of immigration, not because of immigration.

    There can be two trends at the same time: improving social conditions, and mass immigration. Iceland should let improving social conditions roll on and enjoy the delta. Allowing themselves to be “occupied permanently by a tidal wave of sub-Saharan Muslim refugees” just to satisfy a Corvinus fever dream is a negative delta. Much such migration has been negative: what has Islam improved, except for a few stories? What has Black African migration improved, except for a few stories? Sure, Norwegians complained about Swedish immigrants, but it worked out okay. That’s not a universal story, and just repeating the few cases that worked out doesn’t change the general lesson.

    If that be the case, your own ancestors would have never been allowed here in the States.

    “If Iceland stays nice, it will be in spite of immigration, not because of immigration.”

    It will be because the people there, natives and non-natives, work in concert with one another. That’s how it works.

    “Allowing themselves to be “occupied permanently by a tidal wave of sub-Saharan Muslim refugees” just to satisfy a Corvinus fever dream is a negative delta.”

    No, it is a conscious, rational decision on the part of Icelanders. Please cite for me where in Iceland that this “tidal wave of sub-Saharan Muslim refugees” has been running roughshod over the Flóki’s and Arnkatla’s of the world.

    “Much such migration has been negative: what has Islam improved, except for a few stories?”

    Didn’t the WASPs make the same argument with your own ancestors?

    “Sure, Norwegians complained about Swedish immigrants, but it worked out okay.”

    So, magic dirt?

    “That’s not a universal story, and just repeating the few cases that worked out doesn’t change the general lesson.”

    No, the rule rather than the exception in America has been the cases have worked out, and the general lesson is we are Mutts who ultimately find ways to not only get along, but thrive. It’s who we are.

    “You grasp the point in an oblique way. My ancestors and I occupy a niche in the ecosystem; we defend it; we keep out invaders.”

    Except your ancestors WERE the same invaders that natives sought to keep out. Yet, today, you are able to sit on your high horse and exhort how newcomers are the ones with “foreign ideas” and “alien customs”.

    “You don’t invite invaders; you don’t give them your stuff so they can harm you.”

    Again, that’s what the nativists said about your ancestors. So what exactly changed that they became “one of them”? Was it acceptance by nativists, or did your ancestors barge in, demand gimmedats and free stuff, and make a better there here over nativist objections?
