I hope you are keeping well. I just read an article on VDARE, above. May I ask why you decided to publish this article which seemingly implies a connection between crime and immigration from a white European country like Italy? While I fully agree with VDARE’s many articles which link crime, especially violent crime, with non-whites, particularly foreign-born non-whites, I am perplexed as to how this overarching theme on VDARE applies to the case of Francesco Villi, a white man, who immigrated to Canada from a majority white European country.
If Francesco Villi were hypothetically an ethnic Italian, who was born and raised in the U.K., prior to immigrating to Canada, and who spoke with an English accent, would you still have published this article about him?
VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes: I am very sorry to say that I only just noticed this while hopelessly prodding at my vast e-mountain.
I guess we do feel obliged to point out the occasional white immigrant mass murders in the spirit of full disclosure, not that we are ever given credit for our impartiality
Also, I think the stress that emigration imposes on the immigrant of any race is systematically underestimated in the rah-rah immigration popular culture Narrative. It’s a trade-off of course, but I remember some pretty dark moments myself in Toronto in the 1970s, although it was then a British city, on the verge of becoming Switzerland.
The answer to your last question is yes. In fact I believe some years ago we published an item about a mass femicide committed by a British immigrant (although he may have been part-Asian).
Of course, as I assume we agree, the greater problem is anti-white violence, all too frequently immigrant.
