The idea for the title of today’s post came to me from a Mark Steyn article. Included in his article is this quote from Ann Coulter:
With all the smirking on the left about their electoral victories, it’s important to remember that Democrats haven’t won the hearts and minds of the American people. They changed the people. If you pour vinegar into a bottle of wine, the wine didn’t turn, you poured vinegar into it. Similarly, liberals changed no minds. They added millions of new liberal voters through immigration…
Immigration is the “single issue” that decides every other issue. If this country were the same demographically today as it was in 1980, Romney would have won a bigger victory in 2012 than Reagan did against Carter.
Is she right? Did the Democrats and their RINO colleagues intentionally change the American culture by way of immigration policy or the lack there of? Mark Steyn thinks so and so do I. The fundamental transformation of America did not start with Barack Obama. He just sped up the process. Steyn writes:
She’s right about that. Pundits always drone on about how Republicans have to adjust to “changing demographics”, as if they’re occurring naturally. But they’re not – they’re the conscious result of government policy pushed by Democrats and the bipartisan saps across the aisle. And the changes are so non-natural they’re occurring at a rate you usually need a civil war or Black Death for. As I wrote the week after Mitt’s defeat:
According to the Census, in 1970 the “Non-Hispanic White” population of California was 78 percent. By the 2010 census, it was 40 percent. Over the same period, the 10 percent Hispanic population quadrupled and caught up with whites.
That doesn’t sound terribly “natural” does it? If one were informed that, say, the population of Nigeria had gone from 80 percent black in 1970 to 40 percent black today, one would suspect something rather odd and unnatural had been going on. Twenty years ago, Rwanda was about 14 percent Tutsi. Now it’s just under 10 percent. So it takes a bunch of Hutu butchers getting out their machetes and engaging in seven-figure genocide to lower the Tutsi population by a third. But, when the white population of California falls by half, that’s “natural,” just the way it is, one of those things, could happen to anyone.
But it happened to America because the political class chose to let it happen. Ann Coulter again:
We’re living in a different country now, and I can’t recall moving! Had I wanted to live in Japan, I could have moved there. Had I had wanted to live in Mexico, Pakistan or Chechnya — I could have moved to those places, too.
Well, maybe she could have moved to one of those countries and maybe not. They all have stricter immigration policies and controls than the US.
The Hispanic population of the United States is the fastest growing of all ethnic groups. And, the higher birth rates of Hispanics doesn’t come close to accounting for that growth rate.
Now the Democrats and the establishment Republicans want to pass an amnesty bill that would create a pathway to citizenship for 20 million illegal immigrants (mostly Hispanic). But, that number is nearly as old as I am. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is really closer to 40 million. And, once they have citizenship, they will be able to bring into the country their brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles, and etc., etc. Unless something is done to stop this trend, America will have transformed itself into a Hispanic country. I reported before from this source the statistics show that Hispanics vote for Democrats between 60% and 70% of time.
America won’t be transformed into a Hispanic culture over night. But, if Americans keep electing populists like Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or their ilk, then some days it is possible that the new Hispanic America will elect a Hispanic populist president like the one in the country where I live.
Long time readers of Asylum Watch know that for reason of security, I do not write about politics in my adopted country. Others, however, do write about what is happening here. So, if you want to know how bad things can get, please read this article written by American in America and this article written someone from here writing under a false name.
I chose to live in this culture. You did not. If the US doesn’t come to its senses on immigration policy and control, you may one day live in a similar culture whether you chose to or not.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
