When VDARE.com was started in 1999 and for some years afterwards we enjoyed a fruitful relationship with LewRockwell.com, which helpfully linked a number of our articles. Those days have long gone - there have been no links for quite a while.
As Arthur Pendleton noted for us in Lew Rockwell And The Strange Death (Or At Least Suspended Animation) Of Paleolibertarianism this once wonderful site has gone through pitifully PC degeneration:
Anyone who did not get the memo that we need to do a 180 on race and immigration is now denounced or swept under the rug.
At least it appears to remain well-funded.
Today’s lead piece Amnesty Sì, Amnesty No subtitled Get used to it, says Fred Reed is merely psychological warfare propaganda for the Treason Lobby. Reed, who has lived “in Mexico, near Guadalajara” for some ten years, simply preaches defeatism. Underlying this is a studied refusal to think about culture. Of some New York immigrant friends he says they speak
...Spanish at home, which I suppose makes it their primary language, and this conservatives find threatening. I am not sure why.
In as far as there is an argument, it is that Mexican immigrants have some nice neighborhoods here with good restaurants.
No one denies that the Mexican upper class lives extremely well and stylishly – Steve Sailer had the view that George W’s Amnesty enthusiasm stemmed from a envious wish to emulate them. I hope Fred Reed participates.
But that is not the reality which faces most Americans, having to live side by side with the Mexican lumpenproletarians dumped into their neighborhoods. Conveniently, Nicholas Stix has a very relevant piece today Diversity is Strength: It’s Also Massive SoCal Support for Cop-Killer/Spree-Killer Christopher Dorner
Over the past 40-odd years, Southern California has been destroyed by legal and illegal Hispanic immigration, and the lawless gang culture that those Hispanics imposed, as they wiped out the good culture they found. As I showed last summer, in my two-part VDARE series on Anaheim (here and here), the Hispanics now residing in “SoCal” are dominated by gang members and their friends, relatives, and other supporters.
As LewRockwell.com’s predecessor the Rockwell Rothbard Report pointed out in 1998
"…these new arrivals from the third world generally vote for statist policies and along ethnic lines; agitate for entrenching affirmative action; benefit from affirmative action at others' expense; back redistribution of all sorts; commit crimes disproportionate to their numbers; and add to the welfare burden disproportionate to their numbers."
The Mexican underclass is bad news because Mexican society in a mess. I again commend “Mark in Mexico’s” definitive analysis in “The Last Word on Mexico”
Mexicans do not understand the very basics of Rule of Law. They don't understand them and I don't believe they ever will. The single missing ingredient here is accountability. You can steal just about whatever you want to steal here…
Mexican politicians believe that it is their right to enrich themselves at the expense of their constituents. It comes with the territory, so to speak. Mexicans as a whole are not capable of viewing society as a whole. They do not understand that what is injurious to society is injurious to the individual.
As a group, they will not make good Americans. And they are bad for Americans, which is what should count.
Tell Fred Reed to wise up - or keep his opinions in Mexico.
