Buchanan: Is America's Immigration Plan A Yellow-Brick Road To Utopia (Or National Suicide)?

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

President Trump “said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. … I cannot believe … any president has ever spoken the words that I … heard our president speak yesterday.”

So wailed Sen. Dick Durbin after departing the White House.

And what caused the minority leader to almost faint dead away?

Trump called Haiti a “s—-hole country,” said Durbin, and then asked why we don’t have more immigrants from neat places “like Norway.”

With that, there erupted one of the great media firestorms of the Trump era. On Martin Luther King Day, it was still blazing.

Trump concedes he may have disparaged Haiti, which, at last check, was not listed among “Best Places to Live” in the Western Hemisphere. Yet Trump insists he did not demean the Haitian people.

Still, by contrasting Norway as a desirable source of immigrants, as opposed to Haiti, El Salvador and Africa, Trump tabled a question that is roiling the West, the answer to which will decide its fate.

Trump is saying with words, as he has with policies, that in taking in a million people a year, race, religion and national origin matter, if we are to preserve our national unity and national character.

Moreover, on deciding who comes, and who does not, Americans have the sovereign right to discriminate in favor of some continents, countries and cultures, and against others.

Moreover, in stating his own preferences, Trump is in a tradition as old as the Republic.

The original Colonies did not want Catholics here. Ben Franklin feared Pennsylvania was being overrun by stupid Germans:

“Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a Colony of Aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our Anglifying them, and will never adopt our Language or Customs, any more than they can acquire our Complexion.”

Just as anti-immigrant parties have arisen in Europe to stem the flood of refugees from the Mideast and Africa, an American Party (“Know-Nothings”) was formed to halt the surge of Irish immigrants during the Potato Famine of 1845-1849.

Lincoln wanted slaves repatriated to Africa.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, we had Chinese and Japanese exclusion acts.

“Californians have properly objected” to Japanese migrants, said V.P. nominee FDR “on the sound basic ground that … the mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results.”

After the Great Migration of Italians, Poles, Jews and East Europeans, from 1890 to 1920, the Immigration Act of 1925 established quotas based on the national origins of the American people in 1890, thus favoring Brits, Scots-Irish, Irish and Germans.

Civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph, a major figure in Dr. King’s March on Washington, said of the Harding-Coolidge restrictive quotas:

“We favor reducing immigration to nothing … shutting out the Germans … Italians … Hindus … Chinese and even the Negroes from the West Indies. The country is suffering from immigration indigestion.”

The Senate floor leader of the 1965 Immigration Act addressed what were then regarded as valid concerns about the future racial and ethnic composition of the country. Sen. Edward Kennedy pledged:

“Our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually … the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset. … S. 500 will not inundate America with immigrants from … the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia.”

What Kennedy assured America would not happen, did happen.

Today, issues of immigration and race are tearing countries and continents apart. There are anti-immigrant parties in every nation in Europe. Turkey is being bribed to keep Syrian refugees out of Europe.

Boatloads of Africans from Libya are being turned back in the Med. After building a wall to keep them out, Bibi Netanyahu has told “illegal aliens” from Africa: Get out of Israel by March, or go to jail.

Angela Merkel’s Party may have suffered irreparable damage when she let a million Mideast refugees in. The larger concentrations of Arabs, Africans and Turks in Britain, France and Germany are not assimilating. Central European nations are sealing borders.

Europe fears a future in which the continent, with its shrinking numbers of native-born, is swamped by peoples from the Third World.

Yet the future-alarmed Europeans are resisting is a future U.S. elites have embraced. Among the reasons, endless mass migration here means the demographic death of the GOP.

In U.S. presidential elections, persons of color whose roots are in Asia, Africa and Latin America vote 4-1 Democratic, and against the candidates favored by American’s vanishing white majority. Not for the first time, liberal ideology comports precisely with liberal interests.

Mass immigration means an America in 2050 with no core majority, made up of minorities of every race, color, religion and culture on earth, a continent-wide replica of the wonderful diversity we see today in the U.N. General Assembly.

Such a country has never existed before.

Are we on the Yellow Brick Road to the new Utopia - or on the path to national suicide?

Ho ho ho!

Get ready for some 'real' "cognitive dissonance"@@!

Because orthodox academia... of the so-called 'social scientific' kind, cannot deal with processing data which comes now in droves from all points of the compass...

your "modern Caucasians" and their arrowheads are still not recognized for what they really are! The 'native' inhabitants of North America are largely displaced "Asian" populations whose dna ancestry points to that longstanding racial melding which is the predominant character of the many remains from all over Central and North eastern Asia ...

of "Caucasian"(sic)and "Mongoloid" strains which fused in the distant past to produce not just the R1a "Aryan" haplogroups which now predominate in Russia and the slavic countries...

but also the R1b groupings which make up over 60% of modern "European" populations. And which have significant core representation in the Dene/Algonkian dna as well!

Modern genetics is finally catching up to the incredible work of 'academic outcast' Ethel Stewart from close to 3/4 of a century ago! And anthropology, ethnology, & the rest of the social sciences will never be the same. Stay tuned... as the mask comes off, to reveal phony science... in the service of satanic agendas, as the serial distorter of our real history. The true story of "Europes' Beginnings' starts to get told at last.

Just say "no" to Pharisees of the $power kind... and their fakelore history of the western peoples. Outta Africa is outta runway..

as "out of the Altai" sweeps in to restore the story of our real beginnings!

That is the same BS mindlessly repeated cliche logic that all libs use.  "Since USA was populated by people that came from Europe, therefore we have no choice to let the country be overrun by 3rd world immigrants of every race, culture, religion".

Well, this time it is not Europeans immigrating here.  European people built this country from scratch.  They were 99% of the teachers, builders, inventors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, doctors, politicians, etc.... that built this county to what it is today.  Why should we change that?  

Like Buchannan has said, there has never been country in history that has been so multi-racial, etc... that the USA is turning into.  We don't know what will happen.  It may split off and be a very balkanized place.  I think USA is losing its national identity, cohesiveness, unity, etc...  Eastern Europe has the right idea.

Well,for one, many of us don't like the way it is. it is a feces invested hole of major stench. And who pray tell created this stink-hole? It must be those who were in charge and wielded the most power. White people were and are in charge, therefore, it must be their fault. How ironic. The only other explanation is that white folk aren't really in charge. Then who is? The tribe?

You may be right. Trump will probably be the last nationalist president. The left is already close to a majority faction and the situation is very similar to before the civil war. 

When the left elects another radical the right might be able to stomach it for a term or two with a Republican congress. However, when another Commie is elected after that whites will realize they have permanently lost power and then you will see states ignoring Washington and beginning to secede. 

Trump could buy us time by cracking down on California right now before the midterms or the next election. Arrest the mayors and governor and all local officials abetting illegal immigration. If Trump calls their bluff they will be forced to back down. The local police won't impede federal officers and if the Democrats instigate riots he can send in the national guard. 

Most likely that won't happen though and they will just try to use threats and court orders. The slow burn will continue and the left will regain power, undo any progress we've made and then flood the country with even more shitholes.

We should probably eliminate 98% of all immigration for 3-5 years. We need that long to formulate a reasonable policy. Trump is right that we need to cut way back. I would go further. 

We can always revisit this and get a plan that works.

I'll never forget, a young Japanese woman I knew - two degrees, excellent English, solid work history, applied to immigrate to the USA in 2004 - refused.
