Exposing Anti-Immigration Reform Motives and Canards

Matt K. Lewis, Daily Caller, June 20, 2013

My colleague (and alter ego) Mickey Kaus has asked his readers to create videos pushing back against immigration reform. It’s an innovative idea, but also one fraught with danger, inasmuch as it exposes their true motives. The first video is in.

Here are a couple of screen grabs, with my commentary below:


First, I don’t care what Ted Kennedy said in 1965. Second, I couldn’t care less about preserving the “ethnic mix” of America.

To paraphrase what Rev. Samuel Rodriguez said at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference, conservatism isn’t about conserving pigmentation, it’s about ideas. As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?

And why is this being pointed out, anyway?


It’s fun to fear monger the fact that whites will likely lose majority status, but it’s hard to blame immigrants when white Americans are dying faster than they are having babies. The problem, of course, is that whites have stopped having babies. (So get to it!)

    You can’t conserve your ideas when the people you import oppose them in favor of free money.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Correct. Rather than embracing liberty, patriotism and self-reliance the future nonwhite majority will be chanting “Gibsmedat!” while converting the US into one big Detroit.

  • BonusGift

    Paraphrasing what someone I read wrote some time ago: “Culture doesn’t magically appear or drop off a cultural turnip truck, it is the result of people. You drop a bunch of Swedes on an island and come back some years later and it will look something like Sweden and the people will behave like Swedes; Japanese; etc. etcetera … ” One only has to look at the devastation wrought by blacks in virtually every city they dominate in America as well as every country they dominate on the planet to realize that people cause culture and not the other way around. Teddy Kennedy was a liar about many things but he was correct in lying that the “ethnic mix” would not be affected by the 1965 act, because people knew it mattered. Never allow the lying bastards today to gloss over the source of the people allowed here doesn’t matter, because not only does it matter but it is the most important consideration in the future of the country, and the last few decades proves this in spades (not for the better but proof anyways).

    • The__Bobster

      What amazes me is that the prevaricators expect us to believe their obvious lies. Do they really think we’re that stupid?

      Well, the media must be, because they run with the obvious falsehoods.

      • The__Bobster

        OTOH, maybe the media are just evil.

        • Non Humans

          Or maybe they’re both. Makes sense to me.

    • Caucasoid88

      “the last few decades proves this in spades…”

      Yeah, I agree – black people have proven it.

  • Dieter

    “As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?”

    Seems like dude’s answer is within the question–all of those things are intrinsic to being White.

    • The__Bobster

      Too bad all cultures are not the same. A lot of them consider lying and cheating to be a virtue if can you get away with it..

      • Sick of it

        Correction, most of them consider lying and cheating to be a virtue if you can get away with it.

        One of the many good things about Christianity – “God hates all liars.”

    • Greg Thomas

      Yeah, ask the La Razas if ethnicity matters.

  • bigone4u

    Show me a dark person with the values and reasoning processes of a white person and I’ll show you a fictional Hollywood creation. They don’t exist in reality.

    • brengunn

      They do exist, just not in the same proportion. Seemingly not in enough of a proportion to make a viable state, so maybe it’s ultimately the same thing. Too bad that such a fact will be meaningless by the time it is widely acknowledged.

  • borogirl54

    There should be some incentives for whites to continue to have babies to prevent the onslaught of out of wedlock minority babies.

  • MekongDelta69

    Mickey Kaus is as much a conservative as I was a Japanese kamikazi pilot in WWII.

  • sbuffalonative

    As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?

    Because people of other races and ethnicity won’t maintain the standards of Western Civilization without Whites.

    In nature, every animal has a niche, some of them highly specialized and unique. You can’t simply substitute one animal for another and expect nature to carry on without disruption.

    Do people honestly believe that flooding a traditionally Christian nation with Muslims will have no affect? That Muslims won’t change the environment to suit their needs and their beliefs? Do they honestly believe that Muslims will honor our rule of law? Or will they seek to substitute their Sharia rule of law?

    • Rhialto

      You make a good point, but I think there is a more important issue. These immigrants are not immigrating to America (and other Western nations) to join and become assimilated; they are flocking here to colonize America. These immigrants may estabilish societies that are “free and virtuous, honor the rule of law, etc.”, but they will not consider white men (like Matt K. Lewis) part of these societies. White men will be classified as native barbarians, to be excluded or exterminated. The best that White men will receive, is the same treatment that European colonists gave to America’s indigenous population.

      • IstvanIN

        As the La Raza women said in front of Chris Kobach’s house “this isn’t Dorothy’s Kansas anymore”. Unlike previous generations of immigrants these people are not here to become Americans, they are here to conquer and destroy.

        • Bossman

          You’ll need to define what exactly is an American. Every racial group has helped to shape the American identity. The American white man is a cultural hybrid.

          • IstvanIN

            An American is a person of European ethnicity who has assimilated to our founding father’s Anglo-American culture. Period.

      • Germanacus

        They couldn’t integrate if they wanted to. They’re not white. Have blacks smoothly integrated like the Irish or Italians? No because they do not share our DNA like other whites do.

        • Jefferson

          Liberals will say the reason Blacks have not integrated as well into American society as descendents of European immigrants, is because of poverty, racism, and the war on drugs.

    • Germanacus

      Western civilization naturally flowed from our very DNA. It is unique to the white race only. Just as Chinese civilization or Islam is to those races. Our civilization is ALIEN to non-whites. All they can do is take and take, never making meaningful contributions. Simply because they cant.

      • Athling

        Ever notice that what is aesthetically pleasing to one race is different to another race? Take for example, Japanese architecture versus European building design. Notice how radically different they are. Compare the sharply curved roofs of traditional Japanese buildings with the Roman Arch. Two different minds are at work here. They think differently. They see the world differently. This is reflected in their very different religions, language, customs, and traditions.

        Islam could only have come from the mind of an Arab.

        Science will eventually show that the arrangement of the very atoms of our brains differ by race. Western civilization could only have come from the white race. We cannot expect racial aliens to seamlessly integrate with us because they do not share our racial DNA as other whites do.

  • OhWow

    Ask Japan if keeping their country homogeneous matters. Ask African countries. Ask Puerto Rico. Ask Haiti. Ask Jamaica. They will all agree with AmRen on this issue, yet we are the ones called the racists because we are white. Interesting huh?

    • BonusGift

      No human will freely submits to death/genocide; that is, assuming they are aware of it and are thinking logically. It seems that ‘modern’ media, academia, etc. and its associated brainwashing is hard for most people to overcome.

      • Sick of it

        It’s very hard to overcome when sources of this propaganda can be found everywhere, including commercials for breakfast cereal.

        • BonusGift

          Yes it is everywhere; and it is only in a few corners of the Internet that we may partially breathe freely, and I write partially because even here on AmRen I have noticed first hand the heavy hand of moderators protecting a certain group (who shall remain nameless because they largely have made sure the media and academia anti-white Christian genocidal brainwashing is virtually everywhere and 24/7).

          • DiversityIsDeath

            Thank God for the interenet. If not for internet I would never have become racially enlightened. As we know, the white-hating leftist enemy controls the media, the educational system, the legal system, and everything else, so it is any wonder we are all brainwashed? From infancy onward we get only ONE side of the story– until the internet. No wonder the enemy wants to control internet too.

          • Sick of it

            It’s also hard/nearly impossible to keep up with current events without looking at news sources on the web. Our home grown media is another arm of the government now with censorship gone wild.

          • BonusGift

            Yes indeed they do.

          • Sick of it

            The reasons for such moderation make no sense when people who post on this board are mocked elsewhere as Nazis anyway. Which is real funny when one isn’t a fan of Hitler.

          • BonusGift

            The irony is not lost on me either. I guess even here they cannot take that last step into the light; as well as that nasty little voice in their head keeps telling them “please don’t be a ‘racist Nazi’ like that BonusGift or Sick of it or … .”

          • Sick of it

            It’s pretty sad when the native people of this nation are called racists for wanting to survive. To survive being inundated by foreigners no less…it’s not like they care about freedom, the rule of law, or anything else that makes sense.

    • Greg Thomas

      Ask mexico if homogeneity matters, since they are responsible for sending us millions of their brown invaders, to colonize this country, while calling us “racists” if we dare object.

      • JohnEngelman

        At the same time Mexico keeps immigrants from Central America out.

        • Greg Thomas

          That’s right John, by deadly force if necessary.

        • Bossman

          That is not true at all. Latin Americans can take up residence in any of those Latin countries. They are now linked by free trade and their migration rules with one another are much more relaxed.

      • Non Humans

        Ok so I’m a racist. Ouch, I’m so offended (/sarc). Now GTFO of my country squat-monsters.

        • OhWow

          That’s exactly how we need to start looking at it. The word racist only has power if you feel the need to prove to the person you aren’t racist. Don’t allow them to set up the strawman, just say “ok, I am…now what?”. All they can really say then is “you’re mean”.

          • Non Humans

            Tell them “Thank You for noticing” and then tell them it’s pretty childish to use name-calling and attempts at insults because their argument is weak or that you’re making valid points in yours. Then ask them to validate the points in their argument or to show you the verifiable facts (that don’t exist BTW) from research, news articles, etc.
            That’s the thing with libtards, man, the vast majority if them cannot substantiate their arguments because the data reflecting their arguments does not exist, in reality it is quite the contrary. The data and research more often than not falls well within our favor.
            Moreover, though, the libtards do not understand the very points that they argue so zealously, and completely ignore the consequences of such a mindset. The reasons that they stand so firmly behind their beliefs is a combination of moral righteousness and institutional brainwash from kindergarten on.
            It usually only takes a couple good doses of first-hand reality to awaken those who are willing to perceive the reality. Those who are terminally libtarded, are running naked through the proverbial cornfield backwards.

      • Sick of it

        It’s even more amusing that liberals never mention the white elites in charge of Latin American countries. They have a literal race-based system of control.

        • Bossman

          The races can freely intermingle in Latin America. When it comes to who is white in Latin America, it’s all a matter of shades and degrees.

          • Jefferson

            Bossman in your opinion, what is the cutoff point when it comes to Amerindian admixture in a “White” person ? Meaning if they have more than a certain amount of Amerindian admixture, than they are no longer White in your opinion ?

            Is someone with 25 percent Amerindian admixture and 75 percent Caucasian ancestry, still “White” in your opinion ?

    • Sayaka once asked me what our child would look like. I said she’d be half her and half me, so now we have a daughter. Aside from her epicanthicic eyefolds, Ariadne is all me.

  • IKantunderstand

    Actually, Matt Lewis, I do blame immigrants, especially the illegal ones who just crossed our borders and the ones who overstayed their visas. I also blame the government for allowing in the so called “legal immigrants”, and the so called “political refugees”, who turn around and vacation in the country they “fled” from. If this government cared about humanitarian immigration policies for political refugees, they would be bending over backwards to bring in White South Africans and White Rhodesians. Not the human flotsam from Somalia or Dagestan. White people and ONLY White people can create, maintain and advance White Western Civilization. If Asians, Blacks, Mestizos could create Western Civilization, they would have replicated it in their home countries. They did not. The fact that so many of them go to White countries, tells you that they appreciate White Western Civilization. The fact that they have not replicated our Western Civilization into their home countries provides the exact reason why they should not be allowed to continue to immigrate into ours: To quote a beloved character of Western Civilization( Seriously, is there a character who is analogous in Asian, African, or Mestizo literature?)”Elementary, my dear Watson”. They don’t, because they can’t.

    • brengunn

      They actively discourage Westernisation in their home countries, which is not necessarily a bad thing but it speaks to what they think when they arrive here.

      If you run a cold tap/faucet into a hot bath eventually you will end up with a cold bath. To get the temperature just right, you need to turn the tap on for a short while and then turn it back off again. This is how immigration should work but, sadly, we’re all now lying in a cold bath.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Let’s face it, Whites aren’t having as many children these days because, by and large, they take responsibility for supporting and raising them–unlike the underclass who saddle the taxpayers with every facet of the birth, medical expenses, free money and education. For too many, more children means more welfare and no responsiblilty.

    It’s the sense of entitlement of the ‘lower class’ to steal from the masses.

    • evilsandmich

      To expensive to take care of their own babies and everyone else’s as well.

    • MadMike

      I know and it really pisses me off because we are the only race that plays by the rules and create societies everyone wants to live in.

      • HJ11

        The rules constantly change. We need to change and we need to start having more children.

  • Nathanwartooth

    Anti Racist Hitler said the same thing about having more babies….

    • Pat Kittle

      I just posted a link to “Anti Racist Hitler” and asked if it would be tolerated by American Renaissance.

      Obviously not.

  • Spartacus

    “The problem, of course, is that whites have stopped having babies. (So get to it!)”


    Not so easy when you have to pay taxes to support all the mud-colored babies,that on top of losing your job to a less-qualified mud, having to pay more for education because your tuition has to cover for semi-retarded muds, having to be on your guard at all time so you don’t end up on worldstarhiphop as the prey in “the knock-out game”, and the list goes on.

  • KingKenton

    As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?

    If ethnicity doesn’t matter, then surely Mr. Lewis won’t mind if we make the country 95% White.

  • MadMike

    Makes sense, The European Renaissance came after the Bubonic Plague aka The Black Death.

    • HJ11

      It makes no sense at all and is apples and pears.

      The Black Death we now face is the infection of our genetic material such that the population will slowly turn non-White as the infection spreads.

  • HJ11

    Screw the environment. Whites need to have as many children as possible.

  • HJ11

    He wrote “As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?”

    Why does ethnicity matter? It matters because we are flesh and blood organisms, not ideas and words.

    No part of our essential beings in found in the ideas and words “America,” “free,” “virtuous,” “honors the rule of law,” “and advances values of Western civiliztion.”

    It is a basic error in thinking to substitute the products of an organism for the organism itself such that one no longer cares whether the organism even exists so long as it has left behind some product.

  • Seek

    “Conservatives” such as Matt Lewis are the ultimate opponent. At least egalitarians of the Left make no pretense of wanting to preserve tradition. This guy, however, really believes that the authentic American experience is willfully blind to race.
    The late Harvard political scientist, Samuel Huntington, a formidable intellect, understood that in addition to our “propositional” status, America also has an identity derived from a very specific part of the world. He knew all too well that Africans, Arabs, Mestizos, subcontinental Asians, Koreans, Chinese and other nonwhites don’t share that identity, and that many among them seek to destroy it.
    Lewis, and Tea Party types like him, are contemptible.

  • Ex Machina

    Looks like my crappy little video really rankled a “conservative”…

  • Ex Machina

    I am heartened by the comments over at the original article. Could very well be comments written here. Do I dare believe the average “conservative” is getting it?

  • Sick of it

    Plodding along with the old political order is not the same as conservatism. Conservatives believe in conserving good things about our culture and our national heritage. There are a ton of people who call themselves conservatives…but really jump on the Karl Marx bandwagon continually. Honestly, the people in Britain probably see this even more acutely than we do in the states.

  • kjh64

    Whites have not stopped having babies. They just don’t breed out of control and have kids when they can’t afford it. White birthrates have fallen in the last couple of years due to the bad economy. Our demographics are the result of immigration and there has been NO need for it.

  • WR_the_realist

    “As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and
    advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?” So does this fool believe that all those Mexicans waving their Che Guevera banners are coming here to keep America free and preserve the values of Western civilization? If Census Bureau reports showed that blacks were declining in numbers in this country would any black leader be unconcerned? Not only would Al Sharpton start raving about “black genocide” but MSNBC would be happy to continue giving him a platform to do so. I am at a loss to determine just what it is that so- called white conservative leaders want to conserve.
