Begging and choosing

True to form, the ‘migrants’ from Central America who are massing at our Southern “borders” are making the usual demands. These people are at worst, invaders and thus by definition criminals, or at best, they are beggars and chancers, with an arrogance that doesn’t befit their status. When you are trying to force your way… Continue reading Begging and choosing

Secession: would it work?

Colin Woodard made the case for his vision of the United States as divided into a ”country of regions.” Woodard’s map shows his idea of the ’11 countries” or nations that make up today’s United States. I’ve expressed my skepticism about Woodard’s classification of the regions of the United States, because, among other things, it’s… Continue reading Secession: would it work?

Poland rejects mass immigration?

The Daily Caller reports on Trump’s planned visit to Poland, where he will praise the Polish government’s decision to reject ‘refugees and mass immigration.’ National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said of the President’s upcoming speech: “McMaster said that Trump will deliver a “major speech” in which he will “praise Polish courage” and its “emergence as… Continue reading Poland rejects mass immigration?

Whose posterity?

At Vox Day’s blog, there’s a long discussion on the subject of just what the phrase “our posterity” means when used by the Founding Fathers (“ourselves and our posterity“, as you see above on my blog header.) To me, the phrase’s meaning is self-evident, but apparently not to a lot of people. Maybe it depends,… Continue reading Whose posterity?

Refugee admissions dropping?

I was a little doubtful when I saw the headlines claiming that refugee admissions had dropped by half; I know that so far the Administration has not lived up to the hopes of many people on the right, where the refugee racket is concerned. Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch is the best source of… Continue reading Refugee admissions dropping?

“They” will not divide “us”

Just who are the ‘they‘ in this meme, and who are the ‘us‘ to which this meme alludes? The ‘they’ who are supposedly out to divide ‘us’ are, presumably, hateful haters who don’t accept the multicultural ‘we’, the pretend unity that the lefties are invoking in the wake of the latest terror attacks. I guess… Continue reading “They” will not divide “us”

Theresa May: no more ‘safe spaces’ online

Tiberge at GalliaWatch reports that Theresa May issued a communique in Arabic, of all things. A translation is at that blog. Here’s one of the salient parts: “Third, while we need to deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online, we must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real… Continue reading Theresa May: no more ‘safe spaces’ online

Woodrow Wilson, to immigrants

The following message from President Woodrow Wilson appeared in ‘Gateway to Citizenship’, a government handbook for immigrants being prepared for naturalization. The now-familiar tropes about ‘dreams’ and ‘dreamers’ was already being employed almost a hundred years ago: Yes, the propaganda was already there: immigrants ‘enriching us’, and ‘realizing their dreams.’ But the last paragraph shows… Continue reading Woodrow Wilson, to immigrants

‘We don’t have to live like this’

The title of this post is the last line from Porter’s post at Kakistocracy, on the subject of the recent jihad attack in Sweden. It’s a very stark and effective commentary; if you haven’t seen it, please read it. Beware, though, if you are squeamish about pictures of human carnage. Porter has posted a picture… Continue reading ‘We don’t have to live like this’

A persistent myth

Recently I made a list of a number of popular myths or canards of the ‘realist’ right. I wrote them in no particular order, and the last one on the list is the myth that goes something like this: ‘Mormons are the remnant of the old America. They are racially conscious and Utah is a… Continue reading A persistent myth
