Immigration comments

Not to be a kill joy, but isn’t it possible that Trump gets these statements out there to placate and distract his base from the fact that he is not building a wall and not deporting anybody? The time is now.

Based on Trump’s tweets this morning, no. He’s committed to immigration restriction and has rejected the crappy bipartisan* deal.

*Bipartisan means that some traitorous pro-immigration Republicans signed onto it.

But on a more enlightened level. We shouldn’t be going around calling other nations shitholes. Especially if we are striving for a world where each ethnicity stays in their own territory and does not covet what the other groups have. A leader should at least show respect and politeness to those that look up to it. Should the most gifted student in the class say the other students come from shithole families?

I agree that a better president would be someone with Mitt Romney’s gravitas and Stephen Miller’s immigration policies. But there was no guy like that running for office.

    • How is it that Trump is moving the overton window when he is also criticizing the comments he denies making?

  3. He didn’t “go around” and call other nations shitholes.” He said it (or something like it that a democratic staffer hyperbolized) in a private meeting, which was then leaked. Now that snitching on trumps meeting comments is the main goal of the media, he probably used it to his advantage to keep the idea of selective immigration in the forefront, which is all the crude comment was about. But the crime according to the media is “being mean,” which they think is worse than mass immigration, again pitting them against the common man. That or he is Magoo.

  4. Romney has no gravitas nor a good speaking voice; he’s extremely awkward/dorky as public figure who gets by on his looks/hair.

    I will say Pence has excellent gravitas and Lion was quite correct in that he was an excellent veep pick.

  5. Trump just rescinded his promise to his prole base out in the Midwest that jobs at Carrier – a Yakov Company (they are in HVAC) will stay in America and the workers will not have to worry.

    The company just laid off another round of workers and their jobs are being relocated to Monterrey, Mexico, and now the workers are suffering.

  6. The majority of the tribes of gifted students, who most often come from upper-middle and upper class families (per Prep school and Ivy environments), in fact do ensure separation from more debased cultures of more average students by denigrating them both subtly and not so subtly. They don’t call them equal, nor does anyone serious laude them in private.

    A lot of immigration is dependent on either popular political support or lack of popular protest, depending on how one looks at it, and therefore a lot of it is intentionally kept under the radar in the MSM. This includes immigration from shit-hole countries.

    Equivocating for shit hole territories does a disservice to the situation. It gives the populace a false sense of the places from which these people come. Thereby reducing popular protest. It also gives citizens a false sense of the nature of the people who come. Thereby allowing them more practical integration than would be good for a region.

    Last, at this point in the game, I balk at any impulse to protect the feelings and sense of decorum of liberals or their pets. The only end result of that rent is ceding political ground to them. Payment for that rent needs to be with-held from here on out, and moreover liberals need to be given the message that demanding payment for it is futile.

    • Never apologize to grandstanding hypocrite liberals. Let them do their big act of self-righteousness, and weeping, and gnashing of teeth. They always plan on YOU taking the brunt and paying the cost of their “idealistic” plans while they take the moral credit and financial gains.

      You only apologize to friends and people of good faith. Libs are out for blood and have NEVER apologized about the infinite lies and crimes they’ve committed. Indeed, they’ve institutionalized those misdeeds and normalized them.

      And they’ve tried to criminalize any criticism against them if not completely legally, then culturally. How many shows/movies/comics have mocked the Right and conservatives were able to laugh at themselves and take the ribbing. But WOE onto anyone who’d try to mock liberals and expect them to take it with similar good will. Racist, racist, racist, always the magic word.

      They must be criticized; they MUST be laughed at.

      • There’s lots of mocking of liberals (see the movie Green Inferno e.g.) it’s just that It’s usually done from the left. Superficially though it’s something the right can partake in with glee.

  7. Don’t you think the liberal elites call parts of the rural south “shitholes?” I think that was part of their campaign strategy.

    • You can be sure that there will be a lot of comparisons with Haiti and rural Gerorgia from here on out.

      Though, they’re favorite target will be all White West Virginia even though it isn’t part of the South. Attacking the most down and out white state (which is so purely due to its wholly unfortunate topography that no other state shares so completely) because, lo and behold, the rural south is populated mostly by blacks.

      Dave

      January 12, 2018 at EDT pm

      • They are shitholes. Not as bad as Haiti certainly, and still wouldn’t be even if they were independent and no longer mooching off the richer parts of the countries, but northern whites need to reassert their cultural dominance over the benighted backwards areas.

  8. Do not forget that the media and political elite in the USA hate ordinary middle class Americans. Fredo Arias King, a former aide to Mexican President Vicente Fox wrote about this almost 12 years ago:

    “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.”

    Tucker Carlson is AFAIK the only media figure who has even pointed this out, going so far as to tell his viewers that Washington DC, NYC, and Hollywood “despises” them, and I don’t think he’s far from the truth. But how long until the SJW’s start agitating for an advertiser boycott, and his removal from the airwaves for “promoting hate?”

    • Carlson hopped on the populist bandwagon about a year ago. Prior to that he was pretty much a standard GOP shill. Carlson’s debating skills are a bit more refined than most other tv hosts.

      Lewis Medlock

      January 12, 2018 at EDT pm

      • Carlson’s switch was noticeable but extremely welcome. Whether he’s really “woke” or just playing a part for a TV show, his show is one of the best on Fox now because he’s asking the right questions (which formerly were NEVER asked).

  9. It appears that Trump did not call any particular nation a shithole. Also, this was a private conversation.

  10. You crack me up.

    How about this for angle: <<>> and (((Jews))) are now running the American Imperialism?

    The Protestants and Jews have replaced the “stupid” alt-paddies and Wall Street Dagos.

    Flynn and Bannon were Irish; Pence and Tillerson are Protestants.

    Trump is a Scotch-German Protestant.

    (Personally, what is so bad about Flynn, why the hate?)

    Serious point though, why do Jews and Protestants work so well together?

    • Pence is actually an Irish Catholic turned Evangelical.

    Have we defined Imperialism yet?

    The Protestants and Jews have replaced the “stupid” alt-paddies and Wall Street Dagos.

    Trump could use more Scaramucci Dagos.

    Flynn had an odd way of getting into trouble for no good reason. Bannon committed political suicide for no good reason.

    Serious point though, why do Jews and Protestants work so well together?

    Because Reform Judaism is a branch of Protestantism.

    • Imperialism means Victory.

      OT was reading some Razib Khan and he seems to have had the same experience of shock and consternation as you over praxeology and the a priori:

      Probably because most anyone with of statistical inclinations will.

      But math exists for a reason: to check what’s considered “a priori” isn’t a hallucination.

    • @TUJ

      on Imperialism.

      Well, after our long debate on the subject, we did come to mutual understanding did we not?

      https://pragmaticallydistributed.wordpress.com/2017/09/24/still-a-republic/

      On a priori.

      Ironically, the claim that synthetic a priori propositions exist and that the basic axioms of economics are synthetic a priori is just like a mathematical proof, you have to start at the start and go on to the end, step by logical step. (I wonder what Lion thinks of praxeology?)

  12. We had the chance to elect Ralph Nader. We had the chance to elect Ron Paul. None could withstand the uni-party/ media/ entrenched organisations. Could Trump stand to be a little more “presidential” or polite? Apparently not.

    • Dago is actually a misnomer for “guido”. It’s a lazy spelling of Diego, which is a Spanish world, and it means James as a name.

  15. People used to be realistic about race. Richard Dana , who became prominent because of these books, wrote Two Years Before the Mast and To Cuba and Back.

    Here is what he said about blacks and Chinese coolies in Cuba.

    About the Coolies in Cuba he said, “They are more intelligent and put to a higher labor than the negro.”

    He said that most of the English and Americans who moved to California had prospered because they had more industry, frugality and enterprise than the natives. The native Indians and Mexicans couldn’t take advantage of all the resources there.

  17. Now the media are only speaking about the disparaging terms they chose to publish wich allow them to avoid the content of the policies. Nobody is speaking about the incredibly pro open borders project the bipartisan team proposed Trump. It is really a plot . I wonder who is behind it ?

    Bruno

    January 13, 2018 at EDT am

    • Well that initiative was as predictable as can be. I saw an article on their task force a few months ago, and it was populated by all of the usual GOP open borders advocates, so it’s proposals were exactly what you would expect. I’m glad Trump dismissed their nonsense.

      But it shows how serious the open borders lobby in the Republican Party is. They never give up and will keep plugging away.
