Another jew is here to scold you on immigration. She’ll rifle through your genetic records to expose your hypocrisy. You haven’t been in America for 13,000 years, so you can’t object to a Somalian stampede trampling your country into dust. America has no character or history, no cultural continuity or genealogical arc worth preserving.
Steve King said you couldn’t rebuild civilization with someone else’s babies, but his German grandmother immigrated to America in 1894. He must support open borders mayhem because he’s not a paleoindian holdover. Doesn’t he know that America is nothing but other people’s babies? His family has only been here for 124 years, which isn’t enough time for anything significant to happen. I’m surprised he can speak English. It would be inconsistent of him to think that 2018 is different from 1894, or that Germans are different from Guatemalans.
A Jew reminds a German that there is nothing distinctive about his people and nothing special about his culture or history. Jews always promote ethnic and racial mixing in white societies while insisting on the right to maintain their own group identity. Since Jews are intrusive and troublesome wanderers who don’t belong anywhere, they want everyone else to feel the same way.
In 1894, the population of the Unites States was 62 million. In 2018, the population is around 324 million. 260 million people in 120 years is a staggering surge. A quantitative change of that magnitude is also a qualitative transformation. What America needed in 1894 isn’t what America needs now. The economic and social conditions of the country are vastly different.
We used to worry about overpopulation; smart people used to write papers about oncoming social and environmental disasters precipitated by population explosions. More people clog the drains of society every day, sucking up food, water, tax money and services, but somehow we quietly solved the problems of population growth without anyone noticing. Now our only challenge is hypocritical bigotry.
Apparently the carrying capacity of the United States is infinite. It’s a bottomless abyss of a country with endless space and unlimited resources. Humans also don’t have psychological constraints. We’re endlessly adaptable and can thrive in any condition. Rooted, homogenous communities with extended families and close friends are equivalent to churning, multi ethnic metropolises. Organic bonds are just as good as transactional relationships. Living with security and perfecting a craft in a familiar place is the same as vicious striving in a precarious job market.
Notice how we’re all getting caught up in the identity of our immigrants, obsessing over where people are coming from and how long certain groups have been here. The overarching frame of the immigration debate is the question of whether or not you’re a racist, which depends on the kind of person you want in America and your issues with their country of origin or skin color. I give credit to Agnostic over at Face to Face, who wrote an excellent piece on the topic that focused my thoughts: http://akinokure.blogspot.com/2018/01/immigration-is-quantity-problem-mass.html
As always, leftists and the mainstream media present the subject in the most superficial manner possible to make any objection to their radical, destructive agenda look like mindless bigotry. Why don’t you want more Haitians in America, is it because they’re black? And then conservatives play into this frame by awkwardly denying their racism and proclaiming their preference for people with skills. We’re not racists, we want smart people who’ll work hard from all over the world. It’s a distraction.
No one mentions the number of immigrants coming into America every year. No one talks about reasonable limits to population growth. We don’t care about environmental or social consequences of mass scale immigration. We fixate on whether you want Norwegians or El Salvadorians to strain our overstretched system. Whether we take in huge numbers of people from the white first world or the brown third world, we’re already overwhelmed with people we can’t take care of or provide with meaningful lives in stable environments.
Since 2000, we give legal citizen status to 1 million people every year. We now have around 37 million legal immigrants and 11 million illegal immigrants in America. The immigrant population in 2018 is 3/4ths the size of the total population of the country in 1894. My private racist self would prefer a million more Germans to a million Nigerians, but we’d all be better off with a much lower number of immigrants in general.
Why would the quality of American life improve with an even bigger population? What about more heavily congested highways and more crowded subways and buses seems desirable to us? We must resign ourselves to more noise, more movement, more turmoil and more competition. Our economy and our consciences demand it. Our transnational corporations need an easily controlled, redundant workforce to drive wages down and weaken collective bargaining power. A splintered, tribal population won’t organize along class lines and agitate for higher wages, safer working conditions and benefits. Instead they’ll hunker down in their own ethnic groups and squabble with each other over media representation and political, social and legal privileges, leaving the general economic structure of exploitation and wealth disparity intact.
But none of this matters as long as we can catch people in the act of being forgetful bigots. Stephen Miller argues for restricting immigration because he wants to protect our citizens. He wants to create a labor market favorable to American workers. This used to be a central objective of leftists, but now all they care about is proving how supremely non racist they are by encouraging the entire world to overrun their own country.
Jennifer Mendelsohn can’t make a legitimate point about immigration policy, but she can play a petulant, childish game of gotcha by profanely digging up the corpses of her opponent’s ancestors as if they were relevant to the current debate. This isn’t journalism. It’s not serious work or persuasive argument. It lazily feeds into liberal smugness without advancing an understanding of the issues.
These are people who relish the opportunity to tear down traditions and slander established habits, who fiendishly seek novelty and glorify creativity and new approaches to old problems. They don’t care about being consistent over the span of an entire sentence, let alone a century. But where immigration is concerned, we’re suddenly bound by events in 1900. Letting in millions of immigrants every year is what our ancestors would’ve wanted and we can’t let them down.
Liberals are iconoclasts who mock and subvert archaic values, they call for erasing a hurtful history while also believing that our immigration policy should be forever determined by a poem engraved on a statue.
Stephen Miller and Steve King are arguing about the future of America, not its past. They’re trying to rebalance economic power in this country and strengthen the solidarity of the working class. We can improve the lives of our citizens right now by lowering immigration numbers, employing legal Americans at fair wages, rebuilding our communities and moving beyond the stunted obsession with hypocrisy and racism.
