The first returns from the delayed census of 2020 are in, and they have made for celebratory headlines in the mainstream media.

Big takeaway: Between 2010 and 2021, the white American population declined in real and relative terms, with more deaths than live births, as the white share of the U.S. population fell from 63% to under 58%.

As The Washington Post reported, between 1990 and 2020:

Black Americans held at roughly 12% of the population. Hispanics doubled their share from 9% to almost 19%, and Asians went from less than 3% to more than 6%.

And white Americans? In those three decades, whites fell from three-fourths of the U.S. population to less than three-fifths.

Bottom line: Racially and ethnically, we are becoming an ever more diverse nation, which is causing general rejoicing among those who hold it as an article of faith that, “Our diversity is our strength.”

But is that cliche true? Where is the scientific, historical or empirical evidence for the proposition that the greater the religious, racial, tribal and ethnic diversity of a nation, the stronger it becomes?

To put it mildly, this is not a universally held belief.

Our great rival China, for example, obviously fears such diversity.

The ideology of China is communism, and rival belief systems such as Christianity and the Falun Gong are repressed, as are the democrats of Hong Kong. Conformity, not diversity, is the desired condition.

As for racial and ethnic diversity, Tibetans and Uyghurs are subjected to methods of forced assimilation that are regarded, and rightly so, as crimes against humanity and cultural and ethnic genocide.

But while China’s methods of suppressing diversity are often criminal, Beijing’s fears are not unjustified.

In Xinjiang, there are Uyghurs who seek to secede and establish a new nation of East Turkestan. Also, China saw up close what ethnic and tribal diversity did to its neighbor the Soviet Union.

Three decades ago, the USSR splintered along ethnic-national lines into 15 nations. Since then, Moscow has fought two wars to keep Chechnya from breaking free, battled Georgia to prevent its re-annexation of the ethnic enclaves of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and assisted a Russified minority in the Donbas in its drive to secede from Ukraine.

Last year, Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic, attacked and amputated the former Soviet republic of Armenia.

In Africa, tribal diversity has pulled Ethiopia apart again, with the Eritreans having seceded in 1993, and Tigray forces seeking to secede now.

Among the more diverse nations in the Middle East is Lebanon. Arab and Druze, Christian and Muslim, Sunni and Shia — its diversity has proven a factor in its disintegration and descent toward the status of a failed state.

But back to the USA.

Is America a stronger, better, more united nation and people than we were under Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy, when 90% of the U.S. population was of European descent, almost all spoke English, and African Americans were the largest and indeed virtually the only major minority?

How have our deepening racial and ethnic divisions strengthened us?

Consider the causes and issues that have been tearing us apart for the last year: George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, Defund the Police, Portland, critical race theory, white privilege, systemic racism, “The 1619 Project,” Robert E. Lee statues, voter suppression, Jim Crow 2.0, anti-Asian hate crimes.

Crossing our southern border today, in an invasion almost unresisted by the Biden administration, are migrants coming not only from Latin America but from Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Undeniably, these migrants, entering illegally in July at the rate of 220,000 that month, add to our racial and ethnic diversity.

But do their numbers and presence here add to our strength? Does their presence help make us a more perfect union?

The more diverse we have become, it seems, the less united we have become, even about public manifestations of patriotism — the American flag, the national anthem, the pledge of alliance. Nor do our history, holidays and heroes unite us as once they did.

But if 2 million migrants from all over the world, the anticipated number in President Joe Biden’s first year, are good for America, why not open the floodgates and bring in still more?

Is Europe made stronger and better as it is made more diverse from the migration from Africa and the Arab and Islamic world from across the Med?

From the visceral recoil of Europe’s peoples, the opposite seems true.

Greece, Italy and Spain use whatever means they can devise to prevent the peoples of the global South from coming northward into Europe.

ORDER IT NOW

Indeed, it is hard to find a country where religious, racial and ethnic diversity contribute more to its strength and unity than they do to the forces of division, separation and secession. Which is one reason why the U.N. General Assembly that began with 51 nations now has 193.

Racial, ethnic, tribal, ideological and cultural diversity are history’s wedges of national division, separation and secession, as we are discovering.

    Anyone who has the slightest idea about the situation in Xinjiang and Tibet knows that it is utterly absurd to speak of „forced assimilation“.

    Does Buchanan imagine there is an attempt to make Xinjiang and Tibet monolingual and monocultural places with only Han Chinese culture (comparable to what Ukraine and Baltic states do)? That is obviously very far from reality, and he does not even seemto care.

  2. Diversity is strength
    one of the two principal counterfactual, debunked dogmatic unassailable lies of our society.
    @PatBuchanan showed clear evidence for the untruth of “Diversity is strength” narrative.

    4Racism DOT org documents how TRAFFIC diversity is not a strength. 90% respecting cross walks and stop signs and drunk driving law, and 10% occasionally running cross walks, stop signs and frequently driving drunk, that destroys trust in cross walk safety!

    #TheTruthIsRacist

    The other truth is feared and repressed even by Buchanan, and Richard Nixon.

    Races are different. Blacks and Hispanics have lower IQ and higher crime rates than whites (lowercase).
    Yes, North East Asians fare better than whites (lowercase)

    Nixon knew this, and thought the population should not know about such #RacistFacts

    For a true TruthRevolution Dot net, full disclosure of the whole truth is needed. Fear of being called “racist” for telling racist facts must completely end.

  3. In the midst of celebration, the most shocking data is still covered up, to still keep an element of shocking surprise for the future!!
    Someone please enlighten us!

    Withholding the full truth, withholding relevant information is so rampant, even @PatBuchanan does not provide the missing data.  What is missing?

    p\Percentage non-white births!
    Percentage non-white among the young
    percentage non-white 6 year and under
    percentage non-white elementary school beginners

    [MORE]

    Which of these data are easily obtained and public domain? I suppose birth records!

    number of counties with majority non-white births (may I guess majority of counties have majority non-white births)
    TruthRevolution DOT net  is about demanding full disclosure of all relevant information. @PatBuchanan is usually very good at furnishing such omitted data. Please help to enlighten us and the rest of the country about that missing data of non-white births.

    Note also that many white women have non-white children, inspired by Hollywood!

    NOTE: maybe the birth rate effect is not so rampant in the US! It certainly is strong in Western Europe where Muslims have high birth rates.

    To be more clear, the non-white majority at birth predicts the racial distribution in a few decades.  Knowing both white percentage at birth vs white percentage in general should give hints as to where we expect surplus white deaths.  I suppose formulas can be derived.

    Sort of, wherever the over 60 year olds surpass the under 20 year olds, we should expect excess deaths.
    ,

    News about replacement fit a common pattern:
    If the replacement is celebrated, then it is ok to be said.
    If replacement is being lamented, or even just told neutrally, then replacement is a #HateFact, #RacistFacts told by white supremacists of the “extreme right”.

    Armed with this knowledge, What other option is available do the white spectators at the politbureau meeting? Stunned or shocked silence would be a sign or “racism” and white supremacy!
    Applause is the only option!! The politbureau meeting does not allow any other reaction without incurring stiff retribution!

    Sorry for commenting so much! This one here is also about our specialty, information omitted but necessary to get the full understanding

    Making claims with zero evidence is what the government and its’ pundits do, and guess Pat is in on it as well.

    China has 56 different ethnic groups and nobody is bitching more than the Americans about crimes against humanity(while the U.S. was bombing Uighurs in Afghanistan).

    I don’t think diversity is the entire problem; you need to just weed out the stupid people.

    Old white fascists need to realize their definition of “strength” is all wrong.

    “Strength” is a term that covers things like chopping of your penis or tits, being a pharma addict, doing porn for tips, asking someone to tie you up and pee on you, not having property or a stable job, not having a family, not having kids, shoplifting being legal, homeless camps in cities, borders being open, pluralism and transparency and free speech thrown out, and you not having guns.

    So yes. The US is becoming stronger by the hour. By the minute.

    Mr. Bezmenov is very wrong about the USSR not being open to subversion. It was indeed subverted, mostly by the local Jewish intelligentsia…

    …and then it collapsed.

    Bezmenov is blind to the processes in his fatherland. However, as a foreigner, he was quite precise about the processes happening in his new adopted home.

  11. I was recently on vacation with my relatives. Rhetorically, they are conservative, racist Dixie Americans. They complain about Biden and joke on the hatred of blacks.

    But they also love to watch TV.

    They are looking on Netflix and other similar modules seeking entertainment (each other, it seems, is not enough). Only a senior woman with us complains of an intense miscegenation agenda – I don’t want to look at a black man kissing a white girl , she comments, even as the characters in the show are discussing matter-of-factly how wonderful this miscegenation is, as the children are destined to be incredibly attractive supermodels with the addition of negrous blood.

    Of course, all the shows should have a gay character. The gay character is a friend with the rest of the ensemble, even if it is unlikely, as a gay man is friendly with straight men. Characters gay are always represented as straight people more fun, of course – no bug chasing and the rest. Also, of course, my relatives are so accustomed to such motifs that are presented, and the chain of entertainment consumption is not damaged.

    They also have very little children who are pacified by cell phones, preparing them to the same entertainment schemes. These very little children walk enthralled in the bibbity-bobbity-boos, and do not participate in learning of the analogue world or entertain their elders as has been done from past eternity.

    So, I meet and know many upset by these events written of by Mr. Buchanan. They know that a white country is actually they want. But they will not divest from diversity in the smallest sense.

    With easy and voluminous entertainments as our opium, we have a Century of Humiliation ahead, and, as much as much as everyone here wants to place all the blame upon a certain high-IQ ethnic and religious minority, it has at least very much arisen from the wanton and pusillanimous complacence of the people.

    The Jewish led left celebrated this revelation while the beltway right remained mute as they always do since they’ve conceded that acknowledging whites or expressing any concern for them is “white supremacy” and un-American.

    If we had a legitimate government they would immediately institute an indefinite immigration moratorium, ban birthright citizenship, ban interracial marriages, commence mass deportations of illegal aliens and provide incentives for whites to have more children. They would also consider passing anti-white hate speech laws.

    America was founded and built by white people. It does not exist without us or if we fall into plurality or minority status. At that point we’ll just be a collection of antagonistic and warring tribes no different than Afghanistan which we mostly are now. Only worse since Jewish elites will be lording over us.

    But if you need yet another example of how Mr. Buchanan now serves the Establishment, notice the seemingly needless, even contradictory, Exceptional! talking points about “[o]ur great rival China,” its “repress[ion of] the democrats of Hong Kong” and “crimes against humanity and cultural and ethnic genocide” in Xinjiang. Russia, of course, is also painted as domestically repressive and externally aggressive. (But Mr. Buchanan usually throws in something at that point about Putin’s seizure of Crimea. Intern oversight, or have “we” rhetorically withdrawn there, too?)

    That middle part of the column isn’t just to pad the word count. Uncle Sam needs enemies to justify military bases throughout the world, standing ready for the next Operation ***** to protect innocents from any further expansion of their repressive regimes.

    For the word genocide to still have meaning it should be reserved for a level of violence involving mass killings. Nothing going on in China can be considered genocide. The label is just used to create further tensions. Some people in Washington can’t seem to live without new geopolitical tensions.

  19. In his excellent books (Death of the West, Suicide of a Superpower) Mr. Buchanan predicted what was going to happen. However, I doubt if even he thought it would occur this fast.

    The percentage of the White population in the US dropped 5 point in the 2020 census. That is a HUGE number. Plus, the White population dropped in absolute numbers in 10 years – there’s now 24 million fewer of us. And Whites are the oldest demographic by far.

    Our replacement will only accelerate with an aging population of baby boomers, and a birth rate far below replacement (2.1 babies per woman). Those White kids in school today are already a minority in the country their ancestors built. What kind of lives will they lead as reviled second class citizens?

    With the idiotic Biden-Harris regime opening the floodgates to illegals, who also have higher birthrates, this situation cannot be reversed, even if the border is closed. It is hopeless to think that the situation will change if the feckless republicans gain a scant majority in the next election, or even if Trump wins the presidency in 2024.

    The only hope is secession, and we need to start talking about it. The country of our fathers is irretrievably lost. The sooner we face facts, the better our chances.

    How does secession happen? When the South was much more united and much stronger and the federal government much weaker, the rebellion was crushed. I don’t see how the now super powerful feds would ever let secession occur. They won’t even allow Whitey to live among his own kind. If you can come up with a way to pull it off, let me know.

    Somehow, in Brazil, with a White population well under 50%, Whites appear to at least be able to prosper. Whitey needs to get more organized, and come together as a solid bloc. That could be a problem. But if the 80 million folks who voted for a moderate like Trump were able to come together and protect their self-interest, we could do ok.

    True. Too many people – even among the somewhat redpilled – still cling to the outdated “fact” that the West is somehow better than the East in terms of free speech and free expression. It’s time to wake up. Westerners are getting punished, with ever-increasing intensity, for misgendering freaks and saying “it’s OK to be white” for fuck’s sake.

    One thing that nobody mentions should be noted: a Western hard-core dissident who wants to see his establishment burned to the ground is a sane and knowledgeable person. Unfortunately, that’s where we are today. In the East, on the other hand, people like that are literal foreign agents and their ignorant victims.

    The Russian and Chinese governments are not treasonous towards their own people (to the point of genocide) and not in the hands of the (((Globohomo))) so that level of rebelliousness is an inorganic construct. When those governments shine light on the leadership of those groups, they invariably find paid agents so whining about their lack of openness should be left to Soros (*).

    (*) Soros and Buchanan, apparently. What’s the deal with this geezer? Some people praise him but that seems to be related to ancient history.

    However, as much as America gripes about immigration, it is also America who is pushing globalization and trade. US multinational firms from Coca Cola to GE, Boeing, Goldman Sachs, Citibank, Hollywood, CNN, Big Tech, Big Pharma have been selling to and getting rich off third world countries for decades. If it weren’t for global sales, our stock market wouldn’t be even a tenth as high and none of us would be a tenth as rich. Do we not then have an obligation to take in these people? Wealth is relative. We got rich off selling junk and garbage to them and they saw how we live on our TV shows, movies and internet, and they all want to live like us. Can you blame them?

    If America doesn’t want anymore third world immigration, then we need to stop selling our consumer products, airplanes, education and entertainment to these countries, stop lecturing them on “human rights”, end all the wars, bring home all our troops and stop disparaging other governments! Learn to live and let live. I’m still seeing lots of neocons, like Kyle Bass, Tom Cotton, Mike Pompeo, Trump, even Pat here, disparaging the Chinese government constantly, even in this very article. Can you then blame the Chinese people for wanting to come here since we tell them daily that their government is shit and oppresses them?

    If Pat cares so much about the Uighurs, or the Tibetans, Taiwanese, Hong Kongers, why not just bring them all over here? Why subject them to the horrors of that communist freak government you so disdain?

    Until you’re ready to bring them all here Pat, stop with the crocodile tears and stop with the daily disparaging of the Chinese government. You and Kyle Bass, Mike Pence/Pompeo, Trump, Tom Cotton et al. all need to shut up or put up when it comes to China. The whole world knows you people don’t give a flying fuck about the Uighurs, or the Tibetans, or the Taiwanese or Hong Kongers, you just can’t help yourself in wanting to denigrate everyone else to show your own superiority.

    The truly great do not need to disparage others to make themselves look good. You bunch of neocon losers make America look bad, like a bunch of delusional, self-important, insecure, out-of-touch megalomaniacs, who just got steamrolled by a band of cave-dwelling goat herders.

    Anytime you start thinking that the U.S. government is too powerful just remember that we were driven from Afghanistan by illiterate AK-47 wielding goat herders wearing manjammies and sandals. They have more courage than most of us white men in America.

    Whites are able to prosper in Brazil because Brazil doesn’t have a powerful Jewish elite plotting and working against them like in the U.S. which is essentially a Jewish run vassal state.

    I don’t see it, but you may be right.

  47. Buchanan, no surprise, is an ignorant, racist, Sinophobe. China does not fear its diversity-it celebrates it, and protects minorities, who were not subject to the ‘one-child policy’ for one example. China does deal harshly with terrorists in the pay of the West, of course. Buchanan, being a racist, no doubt thinks that Tibetans would welcome a return to the theocratic barbarity and serfdom of the Dalai regime.

    One suggestion; ALL of US need to try something we’ve never done.Let’s
    STOP doing whatever it is that WE are doing.That might be how “we stop it”?

    China is a bit wary of religious wackos – as anyone would be with something as goddamn bloody as the T´ai-Ping Rebellion in recent history.
    The last time we saw the likes of it was the Thirty Years´War, but for the Chinese
    the Century of Humiliation was yesterday.

    (In current Chinese filmlore it is glorified as a nationalist uprising against the corrupt Manchu,
    but they are not stupid enough to believe their own propaganda;
    that was one aspect.)

    According to the administration, it was 75,000 Taliban fighters vs 300,000 government fighters. So, 1 in 4 had more courage than their cousins. The US military kept the Taliban in the bush and out of power for 20 years. Had the US not decided to withdraw, they could have kept the Islamists down for another 20, another 200.

    “. . . a Russified minority in the Donbas . . .”

    I suppose that’s true if you consider Russians to be “Russified.” I suppose it’s also true they’re a minority in *Ukraine* but certainly not in the Donbas.

  52. @KenH

    The US wasnt defeated by the Taliban they decided to withdraw; decision made by a doddering old President who has no intention of running for re election so the choice was easy; the US government is indeed very powerful; they can make your life hell if you screw with them.

    U.S. troops were confined to their bases most of the time and never won hearts and minds unless they paid people. The Taliban controlled 60% of the country for a long time, so that’s not exactly out of power. And considering how fast the nation has fallen to the Taliban probably more in reality even when our troops were there.

    Because of superior weapons/firepower and air support of course the U.S. would inflict more casualties in most engagements but the Taliban were never going to stop fighting and the population of Afghanistan were never going to become secular or woke liberals. So we’d just be fighting a losing war for 200yrs if that’s what you want.

    Who cares if the US paid paper dollars to control 95% of the population. Taliban controlled nothing but bush, no population centers. They had to stay in hiding or face death, and they were wily enough to realize that. Only when the owners of the US decided they’d had enough and prepared to exit, were the taliban allowed out of their holes. You’re blinded to facts by anti-Americanism.

    I’m pretty far from a neo-con, I’m not writing in support of the action, I’m writing about what actually happened. I agree with you that it’s a waste of money, but it was still successful. Were I the emperor I wouldn’t have left troops there for 20 years, but that doesn’t change the facts on the ground. The US went in, overthrew the taliban, installed a puppet government and held 95% of the population until the owners of the US decided to leave. The reality is that the US militarily defeated the Taliban. I don’t know why that’s even an argument.

  61. The key difference between China and America is that the former is not controlled by Jews who want diversity for THEIR reasons not for the benefit of the general population.

  62. The ideology of China is communism, and rival belief systems such as Christianity and the Falun Gong are repressed, as are the democrats of Hong Kong. Conformity, not diversity, is the desired condition.

    LOLOLOL

    Did this shit just equate Falun Gong to Christianity and “Democracy”???

    Pat Buchanan is Catholic but does not think Biden should receive communion–Pat ‘s communion has the special words ” Pop it with your holy heat—make it good enough to eat” and then he munches on that morsel of Popcorn Communion. Pat knows however that the USA is on the slope down—is it true there are tremours at Yellowstone–if this should Blow ——-USA prophet and son Herbert W and Garner Ted Armstrong is what the USA needs today –get back to the British Israelite Theory of Nuclear harmonics—-Popeye in full pomp and popery…..doing the Irish Washerwoman in drag…..

    Tibet had their 70th this past week and it was a 2 hour production —-half in Mandarin and the other hjalf in Tibetan. Likewise China has 56 minorities and thoise such as Ughurs–Khazakx have their own minority language which is taught in school. The culture and tradition of these 56 mnirites are respected and encouraged and both aer good for heritage apprecation. USA preferred a Melting Pot ( one langarge – one culture) and now is becoming a Crack Pot with all sorts of dreanged dingbats perating out of DC –ALL of these demented and dangerous jackasses are career poliitcians–Biden- Pelosi – et al. and hace never done an honest days work . Imagine spending 2.19 Trillion over 20 years but when you see Afghanistan it is detroyed –USA states it wnet to Afghanistan to deveope it —something is wrong here —the USA is doublespeak expert and Californian and Georgian do not count as variants of the English language Pat —( Pat was hinting that Americans are fluent in 50 languages –for openers in his diversification nonsense) and Donald Trump will not be President in 2014 –NO–i twill be Hunter Biden !!

  65. @Realist

    I simply like Hunter Biden for the next Erection. You can not get a good one thinking about past trajectories.
