Touting Their Immigrant Ancestry, Biden’s Appointees Commit To Open Borders—And the Great Replacement

Previously: Biden’s Immigration Plans Crazy—But Jayapal Demands More. Swing-State Democrats Worried

Merrick “Antifa AG” Garland's priorities are clear. An imaginary army of “white supremacists” poised to seize power must be stopped, he said during his confirmation hearing. But the very real Antifa terrorist network is much ado about nothing. “Racist” police are yet another problem he wants to address, although he’s unworried about the black supremacist picked to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Garland is typical of all Biden’s cabinet picks. All, regardless of their other qualifications, are fanatical immigration enthusiasts. Their mission: dispossess the Historic American Nation, hasten The Great Replacement.

If Republicans want to stop that and survive as a viable political force, they must recognize the emotional animus that motivates this type of treasonous Leftist. More than one of Biden’s nominees told tales about his immigrant background and offered the usual “nation-of-immigrants” eyewash.

Thus Garland, who sobbed over his immigrant Russian grandparents. They escaped the pogroms at the end of the Tsarist era, he said, inspired him to “serve.”

That ancestry might explain why he wouldn’t say whether illegal immigration should be a crime. When Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley asked Garland if border-jumping should be decriminalized, he said, incredibly:

I just haven’t thought about that question. I think the president has made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. I don’t know if a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to re-enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question.

[Merrick Garland says he hasn't 'thought about' whether illegal border entry should remain a crime, by Adam Shaw, Fox News, February 22, 2021].

Earlier: Donald G. McNeil Gives His Account of the Struggle Session at the NYT That Got Him Fired for Being Unapologetically White

I was a mere 70 pages into Donald McNeil’s brief about his firing from the New York Times when I emailed a dozen of my friends to demand they read it immediately. But they don’t have my perseverance, so here are the highlights.

Two years after McNeil chaperoned a group of high schoolers on a trip to Peru to learn about rural health care, the Daily Beast published an article detailing the students’ list of denunciations against him, including the career-ending claim that he’d used the “N-word.”

Days later, it came out that he had used the word in response to a student’s question about a high school girl who’d been suspended from school for using the infamous word. He repeated it in order to ask how she’d said it.

This paragraph, particularly the parenthetical, is all you need to know about McNeil’s misadventure in Peru:

“At some point, a student took issue with my having said the U.S. wasn’t a colonial power, saying something like: ‘Don’t you realize what the CIA has done? Don’t you realize that the United Fruit Company interfered in central America to protect its banana monopoly?’ … (This student herself was white, from Greenwich, CT and went to Andover but mentioned multiple times over the week that she had a Latino boyfriend and he had opened her eyes to a different view of the world …)”

None of the students on this resume-padding trip were black. There was one Asian, and the rest were white, dripping with white privilege. (Who else goes on a Princeton-bait trip to Peru in high school to learn about “rural health care”?) Twenty of the 22 students were girls. All appear to be complete idiots.

McNeil went on the exact same trip and gave the same lectures to a different group of high school students the summer before and got rave reviews. But the 2019 batch were in the advanced Spotting Racism class.

Earlier: Michelle Malkin At AFPAC II: “Bloody, But Unbowed”

AFPAC II was three times as large as AFPAC I, pulling in 600 young people. And I mean young! While I was waiting to check in, one of the cheerful young men asked me how old I was. I’m thirty, and I must have been in the oldest one percent! He nodded, saying “Everyone is so young here! Early 20s I think!” When I told my boss this story, he said a young man should know better than ask a lady her age. Funny thing is, I’m used to answering this question at political conferences, like AmRen, but this is the first time I felt OLD!

As we were entering the ballroom, one of the young men asked “Were you nervous meeting Nick? After seeing him so many times on the stream?” Another introduced himself by his twitter handle. And afterwards, a young man pulled Michelle Malkin aside to tell her about his new Gab account.

A female friend and I were stoked to see Lauren Witzke in attendance with the handful of other women in this sea of sharply-dressed young men. In the reception area, the always-confident Laura Loomer stood out in a deep purple pantsuit.

Though the audience was overwhelmingly (and unashamedly) white, there were also a few black and Asian allies. (And not just Jon Miller, who joked from the stage about being a token black speaker.) I was lucky enough to find my way into open seat next to Bryson Gray.

Being a Boomer at thirty, I had no idea who he was, but luckily Jaden McNeil introduced us. (For the other Boomers out there, Bryson Gray is a pro-Trump, pro-Life, pro-2A black rapper.) Known for his song, Hate Speech, Gray said, “I believe in free speech—all speech."

Politicians with courage (in Spain)    In the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, February 9th-13th, video footage was shown of events in the Capitol building during the January 6th protests.

I had things to say about that video footage in my February 12th podcast. They were not very kind things. I spoke of the congressfolk "scampering off to safety under the guidance of armed Capitol Hill cops while an un-armed mob filled the corridors."

I quoted a friend's email from earlier in the year, one that had made such an impression on me, I'd posted it here on VDARE.com at the time. Here it is again.

Not a single person had the courage to go out and confront a man wearing buffalo horns flanked on either side with what looked like cast tryouts for Duck Dynasty. Had one person done so, he would now be the frontrunner for the presidency in 2024.

That February 12th podcast brought in an email from a different friend, reminding me of a real attempted coup forty years ago this month.

This was in Spain, February 23rd 1981. Francisco Franco had died five years previously after almost forty years of authoritarian rule. His chosen successor was Juan Carlos of the old Spanish royal family, who set about liberalizing Spain in the direction of a constitutional monarchy. Juan Carlos appointed 43-year-old Adolfo Suárez as Prime Minister in mid-1976.

A free election was held a year later, the first since the civil war of 1936-39. Adolfo Suárez' party won a plurality and he continued as Prime Minister. The following year a new constitution was approved, fulfilling Juan Carlos' goal: Spain had become a democratic state under constitutional monarchy. In the next election in 1979, Adolfo Suárez' party again won a plurality and he again continued as Prime Minister.

It's an uplifting story of an old, proud nation making the transition from authoritarian rule to representative, constitutional democracy in just four years, 1975-79. It was a rocky road, though, as I guess it was bound to be. There were some seriously disgruntled factions in the new Spain, especially on the political right.

In February 1981 one of those factions staged a coup: a real, armed coup, not just some comedians in buffalo horns committing trespass. Antonio Tejero of Spain's Civil Guard (approximately a uniformed equivalent of the FBI) with armed colleagues entered the lower chamber of Spain's parliament while it was in session.

What they were in session about was the swearing-in of a new Prime Minister. Adolfo Suárez had resigned a month earlier, facing a revolt in his party and plagued with health problems. The swearing-in roll call was being taken when Tejero and his pals stormed into the chamber.

Quote from Adolfo Suárez' 2014 obituary in the London Guardian:

Suárez displayed remarkable physical courage, being one of only three parliamentarians who refused to obey Tejero's order to lie on the floor.

One of the other two was Deputy Prime Minister and former army General Gutiérrez Mellado; the other was Communist Party leader Santiago Carrillo. Concerning the former, the coup's Wikipedia page records that:

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes: Michelle Malkin has emerged as an extraordinary force in U.S. politics, transitioning from a brilliant career in conservative journalism to becoming a genuine political leader. And, much as I respect the unique phenomenon that is a Trump rally, I have to say that Michelle’s speeches come closer to classical oratory in their intellectual force and sheer beauty.

What follows is adapted from her remarks at Nick Fuentes’ AFPAC conference, February 26, 2021. Congratulations to all concerned.

See her on video here.

Good evening, America First-ers. Mommy’s home!

 Mr. Potato Head has been neutered. Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben have been erased. Statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Confederate generals, Catholic saints, and Columbus have all been torn down. Our last legitimately elected president, Donald J. Trump, has been deplatformed everywhere. But the authentic America First movement is alive and kicking, growing and spreading.

We are the world’s healthiest, most viral virus. Nothing and no one—no masks, no vaccines, no amount of censorship, not the SPLC nor the ADL, not the snot-nosed tattletales at the Washington Examiner nor the smear merchants at the Huffington Post and NBC News, not that one sniveling soy boy at the Daily Dot nor his feckless counterparts at the Young America’s Foundation and TPUSA—can keep us at bay.

The title of my speech tonight is “AFPAC II: Bloody, but unbowed.”

For the last several years, I’ve written my major national addresses around classic poetry. It’s important to read and memorize beautiful things. We stand for beauty. We should embed beauty in our minds, hearts, and souls. I was reminded of this as I listened to the clunky, pedestrian black “youth poet laureate” at Biden’s inauguration—a Jesse Jackson/Maya Angelou knock-off whose prose has the aesthetic effect of nails on a chalkboard.

Last year at the inaugural AFPAC, I chose Tennyson’s “Charge of the Light Brigade.” The year before that, at the snoozefest pay for play racket known as CPAC, I sounded the alarm over the existential threat of mass migration using Macaulay’s “Horatius at the Bridge.”

This year, for you, I chose the Victorian poet William Ernest Henley’s famous and enduring 1875 ode to resilience, “Invictus,” which means unconquerable in Latin.

Henley was chronically ill and wrote his battle cry while hospitalized with crippling tuberculosis as he awaited amputation surgery. In the second stanza, he described his stoic response to adversity. And it is that stiff-upper-lipped defiance that we dissidents must channel as the going gets tougher in the ever-oppressive age of COVID lockdowns, Big Tech censorship, anarcho-tyranny, and the twin weaponization of Nov. 4 and Jan 6.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

The fourth and last stanza of Invictus, contains one of the most famous concluding couplets ever written in the English language:

It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
