Does Frist want proof the natives are restless?

Impressive developments on Senator Frist's VOLPAC message board, noted by Peter Brimelow on Saturday as having been apparently captured by critics of the Senate Amnesty cave-in - with which the Senator finally associated himself.

When I first looked at this thread, on Saturday morning, there were 13 comments. Now (3pm East Coast time Sunday) there are 580 comments. More than 90% are furiously hostile to Amnesty, and all the bills the Senate has considered. More than a third of these are very rude about Senator Frist. Many assert an intention never to vote, contribute, or work again for the Republicans as currently led. Maybe 5% vacantly congratulate Frist for his actions. A handful are pro-immigration.

For an immigration reformer, the comments are a pleasure to read.

But the interesting fact is that Peter was mistaken: the thread is moderated. VOLPAC's staff are letting remarks bitterly critical of their boss go up on their site.

I doubt this is a mutiny: it has gone on too long. Could it be that the Senate Majority leader wants a way of demonstrating how high passions are running? To help him stand off the White House?

Add your thoughts here. Don't forget to say VDARE sent you!
