What kind of immigrants do we want?

I hate Iran, with every last fiber of my being. I desperately want it to collapse, I despise Iranians and their values, hate them for the hostage crisis of 1979, and hate them for their sponsorship of terrorism.

So, hmm, what should I do? Let me think about this one for a minute….

Hey, I've got it! I'll move there! And I'll apply for citizenship!

Sounds insane, right? But isn't that what happens when many Muslims immigrate into this country?

Look at Omar Mateen's father, Seddique Mateen, an immigrant from Afghanistan and a naturalized citizen of the US, who maintained all sorts of ties to radical islamist groups, and who brought his son up to cheer when 9/11 occurred. If he regarded America as the Great Satan, why did he move here?

And why do so many other America-hating Muslims move here?

More to the point, why do we keep accepting immigrants who hate this country? Wouldn't common sense dictate that if we want new citizens, we ought to get some minimal loyalty to our country? Or, at the very least, not a burning hatred of it?

Why does the US not screen out such people? Are we so rich, and so desperate for more people to put on our welfare rolls that we just have to expedite the immigration of more Muslims, as Obama recently did?

The US is now filled with mosques which preach hatred of America and all that it stands for.

Would Saudi Arabia put up with Christian churches which preached hatred against the ruling family there, or against Sharia law? Would Iran abide Presbyterian ministers who called for more Crusades against the Muslims?

Why are we so weak, and so utterly defenseless? Exactly who is it who wants to fill this country with people who hate it? Does it seem they have America's best interests in mind?

Has there ever been a nation in history which has shown the same masochistic, suicidal bent that the West does now?

No.

It is absolutely insane.

I guess our rulers don't care. The population must rise at least 2, 3 percent every year. To not to do so would collapse the economy within 5 years.

Itz like that biology experiment in the petri dish. There will come a reckoning.

Mark Caplan said...

Agreed. Try this approach: ban people from countries who regularly use a hostile, contemptuous epithet when referring to Americans. That means Muslims, who call Americans kafirs (unbelievers), Crusaders, imperialists, and Zionists. Also, Mexicans, who call us gringos and gabachos. In Italy, we're known as fat asses, which probably isn't quite pejorative enough to warrant an outright ban. Let Italians in but with temporary visas.

Samuel --
Good to hear from you, it's been awhile. And yes, "insane" is the right word.

John Craig said...

Europeasant --
And one of the problems in OUR Petri dish is that the lower IQ's reproduce at a higher rate.

John Craig said...

Mark --
That's not a bad approach…..I hadn't realized that "gringo" was pejorative.

Mark Caplan said...

The NPR ombudsman went through a wrenching, soul-searching exercise to determine whether gringo was pejorative, racist, or neutral. Some quotes by the ombudsman:

"Merriam Webster defines [gringo] as a term 'often disparaging a foreigner in Spain or Latin America especially when of English or American origin.'"

"The Associated Press style guide, which NPR uses regularly, says it's a derogatory term for foreigners in parts of Latin America, and advises its use only in quotes."

"There is strong disagreement – among Hispanics and non-Hispanics – about whether the word is offensive."

"Gringo can have many meanings depending on the country and even the community."

This shows that whites can be offended by gringo when no offense is intended, as when a white person makes the unforgivable mistake of casually calling an African American "articulate."

"Is the Word 'Gringo' Offensive?"

Thank you for doing all that work. Okay, I won't take offense then if any Mexican calls me gringo. (I doubt that any Mexican would refer to me that way though since I look more like a Mexican than a Norte Americano.)

Samuel Nock said...

Hi, John. Apologies for my light commenting lately!

John Craig said...

Samuel --
You only get so many unexcused absences.

LOL

I don't think there ever was. Not even Romans, with all their degeneracy, were actively importing outspoken enemies with a purpose of destroying themselves.

Western people are spiritually deformed.

Demands to affirm the mass delusion and deny reality have gotten so insane in the last two years, that I now feel as if I'm living in a dystopian novel.

Spiritually, religiously, Western man is dead. Christianity has collapsed, first Protestantism and now the Catholic church.

To go from Pope standing up for European people and Europe as Christendom, against communism, to BuddyPope making out with migrant feet in a space of twenty years is incomprehensible.

John Craig said...

Rona --
I thought of Rome, too, and came to the same conclusion: it destroyed itself, but not out of a WILL to do so.

And what we have here, the Europeans have ten times worse. As it stands now, Russia is the best hope for the West, and they're not even "the West," certainly not historically. They have a hard-minded leader who actually governs with his own people's best interests in mind. And other than them, tiny Iceland is the only Western country which has escaped unscathed from this mass insanity.

Rona said...

John,

yes, Russia is not West, but they provide an ideological alternative to liberalism, at least to Orthodox nations in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Frankly, if there's any chance of European survival it's going to happen in some former communist nations that haven't had the time to swallow another suicidal ideology.

Iceland resisted for a while but they started importing migrants now and letting banksters of the hook.

Even the Japanese have begun talking about migration as being "maybe necessary". They better stick to robots or there won't be a single outpost of civilization in a hundred years.



John Craig said...

Rona --
I read about the Icelandic fraudsters, but hadn't realized they are now importing migrants.

Japan just had a huge demonstration in Okinawa asking for the US to leave the island. I think xenophobia is still going pretty strong over there. It was only a generation ago that Japanese prospective in-laws would hire a detective to make sure that their child's fiancé(e) didn't have any Korean blood.

Runner Katy said...

Wow, that's pretty depressing to read, but I completely agree. My mind wonders if we can do anything about it? Is there anything you can think of that could prevent national collapse of our previous Great America, or even just American civilization as it is now?

John Craig said...

Runner Katy --
The only thing I can think of is vote for Trump. He recognizes the ways in which we've gone downhill and the ways in which we'll continue to go downhill if something isn't done to stop. In a way he's really America's last hope; and I don't even like the guy personally.

John,

You piece is full of so much common sense that even my 10 year old kid could get it. Sadly, if you read this piece at a Bernie rally, those idiot whites would have you tarred and feather for being so hateful. I imagine 90% of Russians would give you a standing ovation for your masterpiece. Sad isn't it?

Honestly, I can't recall a great civilization that fell because they were actively importing enemies, all the while showering them with free benefits and persecuting anyone who dared to stand up to this invasion. Yeah, certain Indian tribes were friendly to whites at the onset but rebelled once they smartened up to the white man's agenda.

Thank you very much.

I can actually sympathize with the Bernie crowd more than the Hillary crowd. At least Bernie stood for something (even if it was socialism) and he had some integrity, as misled as he was. Hillary stands for nothing other than herself; what can her supporters possibly be thinking? I'm taking some heart from a recent poll showing that 22% of Bernie supporters say they will not vote for Hillary no matter what.

And yes, in Russia they show a lot more common sense.
