JOHN DERBYSHIRE: Merrick Garland—Antifa Attorney General Plans To Crush Dissent

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

Of the sixteen persons nominated for a cabinet position, as listed in the January 23rd issue of The Economist [After the chaos of the Trump era, what can Joe Biden hope to achieve?] nine have now been confirmed by the U.S. Senate and have assumed office. So we are better than halfway through the confirmation process.

You can't help but notice the diversity. Not one of them—not one of the sixteen—is a non-Hispanic white Protestant heterosexual male. To put that another way: Not one of the sixteen comes from the same slice of the diversity pie as did every single one of our nation's Founding Fathers.

(Am I still allowed to say "Founding Fathers"? "Founding persons," whatever.)

That is the working definition of the word "diversity" in our benighted age: no non-Hispanic white Protestant heterosexual males! That's true diversity!

The obsession of elites over Race and Racism to the exclusion of almost everything else now is really remarkable. The alleged victimhood of certain tribes is a top narrative every day in the news. The group to blame, the media now asserts, is white people. The United States was founded and designed by white Protestant men, yet millions of diverse foreigners around the world want to immigrate here. ...

Earlier (or 20 years later) NYT Complains Trump Doesn't Respect the Narrative: "Under His Presidency, the American Dream Would be Primarily Reserved for Americans." and Is Trump Un-American for Saying Americans Have a RIGHT to Choose Which Immigrants We Want?  both from 2016

Originally published in the Washington Post, October 15, 1995

James Fulford writes: VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow published this in the pages of the Washington Post more than 25 years ago. It's still on their website. Also on their website: savage attacks on Lawrence Kudlow for inviting Brimelow to his birthday party.

Brimelow's views on immigration haven't changed any. They're still in line with what the majority of Americans feel about immigration. But since then, the Post, and the Democratic Party, have moved far to the anti-American Left.

As for "mean-spiritedness" (which here means the opposite of "compassionate") it's a standard tactic of the Left to say that not giving into their demands would cruel to someone. In this case, that would be (a) illegal immigrants and (b) prospective legal immigrants, I.E. anyone in the world who wants to come to America.

The immigration issue is on the move. At last. Future historians will wonder what took it so long. "We are transforming ourselves," Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner Doris Meissner has said, approvingly. But no one bothered to consult "we."

This fall, however, bills authored by both Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) and Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) mark an historic watershed: Both propose the first reduction in the legal influx since the 1965 Immigration Act restarted mass immigration, quite accidentally, after the four-decade mid-century lull.

Official Washington is used to being told that it is out of touch with the rest of the country. But on the immigration issue, professional politicians are showing a touching bipartisan willingness to Get It. Even President Clinton initially endorsed the findings of the recent U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform headed by former liberal congresswoman Barbara Jordan, which concluded in effect that the system was broke and that legal immigration should be reduced.

Earlier by Patrick J. Buchanan: Is The Establishment Still Terrified Of Trump?

"I don't know if he'll run in 2024 or not. But if he does, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination."

So says Mitt Romney, the sole Republican senator to have voted twice to convict President Donald J. Trump of impeachable acts.

But is it possible Trump could win the nomination in 2024?

What does history teach us about Republican presidents who, after losing the White House, come back to win it again?

Earlier, by Ann Coulter on The Proud Boys: "America’s Last Line Of Defense Against The Left’s Fascistic Antifa Storm Troopers"

A little more than a year ago, 2,000 antifa tried to shut down my speech at UC Berkeley, according to police on the scene. The Berkeley police chief had ordered her officers to stand outside the building like mute ninjas, and make no arrests, unless they personally witnessed a felony being committed in front of them.

So barring a bank suddenly popping up on the sidewalk and an antifa attempting to rob it, I had no official protection from 2,000 violent, mentally disturbed thugs.

Thank God I had the Proud Boys.

There had been no warning of the antifa mobilization against me until an hour before the event, when they showed up, with a thousand of them at each entrance to the building where I was to speak.

Luckily, I’d invited about 20 Proud Boys from northern California chapters to attend my speech. If I hadn’t, I might not have made it to the campus at all. (If antifa had won, at least you would have heard about my visit to Berkeley, because the media would have reported on it triumphantly.)

Turbas are no longer Latin American diversity’s only vibrant contribution to U.S. politics. For whatever reason, the Biden Regime is clearly displaying Latin America’s characteristic combination of rigged democracy, socialist rhetoric, and oligarchic capitalism.

Post-Cold-War Leftist Latin American caudillos—strongman rulers—cloak themselves in socialist ideology and hold sham elections. They engage in socialist and redistributionist policies to placate useful-idiot supporters at home and abroad. However, they simultaneously partner with crony corporations to permit a perverted capitalism that keeps the elite wealthy.

By acting in concert, the Leftist caudillos and their capitalist cronies have generated a new stasis, a relatively stable form of neo-feudalism contrary to the wishes of constituents: a peasant class struggling to survive and a ruthless ruling circle. The educated middle class and legitimate businessmen have little choice but to join the parasitism or leave.

In the U.S., here are chilling similarities in the questionable election of Joe Biden, judicial complicity and the silencing of dissent.

Economist Luigi Zingales of the University of Chicago, who is no fan of President Donald Trump, writes:

In many fledgling democracies, it is impossible to govern without the support of the army.… The threat is so present that elected representatives need to cater closely to the interest of the army in their decisions. The United States is finding itself in this situation, except that the power of the army rests in [Twitter, Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook].

The Silent Coup, ProMarket.com, January 11, 2021

A prominent Cuban exile and artist, Ana Olema, has noted the lopsided censorship and has praised the Capitol Hill protesters as “protecting the republic and the nation” from those who would steal it.

Earlier: Coalition of the Fringes: Asians Join With Blacks To Protest "Racism" AKA Black Attacks On Asians

Pssst. Can I have your attention, please? I'm going to share a little secret that liberal "people of color" and their public relations agents in the media don't want you to know. The recent crime wave against Asians in America's big cities is not the fault of Donald Trump, MAGA activists, conservative talk radio, or white people. It's the fault of the perpetrators and the perpetrators alone—most of whom happen to be thugs "of color."

Let's pop the delusional bubble of left-wing Asians who marched this weekend in New York City, Oakland and San Francisco in "unity" protests against "white supremacy." These "wokesters" blame "anti-Asian bias" created by an imagined backlash by imagined "white supremacists" against China because of COVID-19. Donning "Black and Asian unity" T-shirts, they embraced the self-defeating attitude of Oakland organizer Eddy Zheng, who wheedled: "Supporting our Asian community is not about dividing us. This support is for all of us suffering under white supremacy. We need to understand that so we can triumph and have public and personal safety."
