"The new electorate is more Hispanic, more black, contains more East Asians, has sprinklings of Arabs and Muslims and South Asians; all of these constituencies voted heavily for Obama. More generally, both Hispanics and Asians have for many years supported Democratic politicians for local offices.
In the 90s National Review turned its powerful polemical guns on an immigration system which, in the editors minds, was destined to overwhelm the voting base of the Republican Party and replace a perfectly good existing American people with a new one. National Review supported such measures as Proposition 187, Californias controversial effort to push illegal immigrants off of state welfare programs, and tried to argue, against a generally complacent Republican establishment, that large-scale immigration would imperil the partys long term prospects.
These efforts were opposed vigorously by the Wall Street Journal editorial page, whose core viewaptly summarized by Steve Sailer as Invade the World, Invite the Worldwould not allow immigration restrictionist arguments even to appear on its opinion pages. Meanwhile, several neoconservatives either directly or by innuendo accused immigration restrictionists of being motivated by anti-Semitism. Needless to say, it was shocking to hear such charges emanating from people generally considered close political allies.
But if one takes stock of the resulta Republican Party wedded to a shrinking and aging electoral base, a Democratic coalition that is on almost every foreign policy issue less hawkish than the Republicansit would appear that the neoconservatives scored a rather dramatic own goal in the immigration wars. By inviting the world the neoconservatives and Wall Street Journal Republicans undermined the demographic and electoral basis for its preferred, hawkish, foreign policy.

Excellent analysis. The Wall Street Journal undermined the National Review at every turn. What gets me is that it is not just the takers — the dim-bulb brown peasants from Latin America — that vote Democratic. It’s also the brilliant East Asians, an ambitious and upwardly mobile people. Clearly the ideas behind America are not being assimilated by immigrants, legal or illegal. It’s only white Europeans (or whites from elsewhere, such as Cuba) who seem to assimilate and adapt to ideas that made America great. So, really, this is Teddy Kennedy’s revenge on America, his long-term plan to destroy us is succeeding. And yet no one can do anything to stop the onslaught. God help us.
That image sums it up. I had hoped that under a Republican House, Senate, and President we could have completely changed the immigration sytem—limiting its scope, shutting down the border, weeding out those here illegally, and creating a system based like that in Australia, i.e. based on merit, ability to speak English, utility, youthfulness, and need.
Instead we let in every peasant who wants to break the law, undermined our schools, and are stuck with a nation divided around language and culture.
The Rats wanted divisions; they got it.
They came from third world countries to help even us out. And, I must say, they are doing an excellent job.
Not to worry. Like you guys have been telling me for years, it is a California problem.
With this Dream Act Amnesty, they can move freely around the U.S.
Not to worry, as soon as Obama gets through “fixing” our economy, most of the immigrants will go home for a better life....
I think I read somewhere that Mexico’s unemployment rate is 5%. Anyone else know what it really is?
“Its only white Europeans (or whites from elsewhere, such as Cuba) who seem to assimilate and adapt to ideas that made America great.”
Somewhat more so, but they will mostly vote Democrat.
“Clearly the ideas behind America are not being assimilated by immigrants, legal or illegal.”
Why should they when the elite of America mostly no longer believes in those ideas either?
Daniel 2:41 "And in that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with common clay.
Daniel 2:43 "And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.
People are defined by their beliefs.
The United States outperformed every Spanish speaking colony in the New World because her founders followed a different path, based upon different beliefs.
When we follow the path of our new immigrant peoples, we will arrive at the destination which they have already achieved in their own countries, given time.
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord guards the city, the guard keeps watch in vain.
Can’t call him or Derbyshire blind racial bigots, both have married chinese women.
I like the Way You Think,,,
As I read this article the recent event of the Hostess ‘take down’ by the small Baker’s Union came to mind.
A little leven levens the whole lump. . . .
That’s just crazy talk.
They only migrate from one country to another and would never migrate from one state to another./sarc
The American Dhimmi celebrates the end of traditional America, so long as it means that we submit. I’m trying to remember when they were conservative. Scott “Jesus is a Palestinian” hasn’t been for years.
