"You can not become thorough Americans if you think of yourselves in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American." -Woodrow Wilson, 1915.
There are a lot of things Pat Buchanan and I would disagree on if we were chatting over dinner...but this excerpt (from his latest book, "State of Emergency:The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America") was right on:
"Let us imagine a comparable situation [to current day illegal immigration]. Ten million Americans, to escape poverty and find work during the Great Depression, migrate from the Dust Bowl down to Mexico. Settled there, they demand that Mexico provide them cash payments, subsidized their food, provide them free medical care, educate their children in English, teach them U.S. history, and start celebrating U.S. holidays. Suppose the Americans then began to commit crimes of assault, rape, and murder at three and four times the rate of the Mexican people and that the American young started joining criminal gangs at nineteen times the rate of Mexican kids. Suppose then that 10,000 Americans joined in the burning and looting of the second largest city in Mexico and millions marched under the Stars and Stripes to demand all the rights and privileges of Mexican citizens.
Mexico would have sent its army to drive the Americans back over the Rio Grande. Contrast this with America's cringing response when faced with a duty to defend our borders and remove intruders from our home. In our border crisis George Bush is a ninety-seven pound weakling.
In almost every opinion survey, majorities of Americans say they want to stop illegal immigration, even if it means troops on the Rio Grande and a barrier fence from Brownsville to San Diego. But the majority no longer rules in America, when its interests collide with the globalist ideology of our transnational elites." (Pat Buchanan, State of Emergency)
When you read the analogy it seems preposterous (even substituting any other country for Mexico) yet this is the Twilight Zone scenario we find ourselves in here in the U.S. Contemplate the audacity!
This is why the Minutemen have been invaluable to the cause --it's time to take the power back. Democrats and Republicans will do nothing as they need to cater to the Hispanic vote, corporations will do nothing because they benefit from the cheap labor and the far left won't lift a finger because they would enjoy the dissolution of a jingoistic America...
Is it already too late?
