One of the most remarkable documents I have read recently is this one from the Center for Immigration Studies. (Thanks to Steve Sailer for highlighting it.) Written by former Vicente Fox aide Fredo Arias-King, it argues that the political classes of the USA want continued mass immigration because they see it as furthering their hopes of becoming a permanent elite caste, ruling over a nation of client-peons. Sample:
“While I can recall many accolades for the Mexican immigrants and for Mexican-Americans (one white congressman even gave me a ‘high five’ when recalling that Californian Hispanics were headed for majority status), I remember few instances when a legislator spoke well of his or her white constituents. One even called them ‘rednecks,’ and apologized to us on their behalf for their incorrect attitude on immigration. Most of them seemed to advocate changing the ethnic composition of the United States as an end in itself. Jefferson and Madison would have perhaps understood why this is so—enthusiasm for mass immigration seems to be correlated with examples of undermining the “just and constitutional laws” they devised.”
[Derb] Every so often the loathing and contempt that our politicians feel for us, the masses, breaks through the surface.
The late Malcolm Muggeridge used to say that in any election he always voted against the incumbent. He reasoned that the only actual power possessed by ordinary citizens is the power to sack politicians. We might as well exert that power every chance we get. When I first heard that, I thought it frivolous. Now I’m not so sure.
