Where Is America’s Sense of Self-Preservation?

John Bennett, American Thinker, June 9, 2014

Many Western nations are restricting immigration because of popular anger at the unwelcome changes brought about by mass immigration. America seems to be the rare country with the misfortune of having politicians who won’t stand up for citizens.

How many nations around the world have to be thrown into crisis and division for us to learn that mass immigration is not always a positive? Israel, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Norway are just a few of the Western nations that energetically guard their territorial integrity, and some party leaders in those countries openly explain why they do so.

Israel’s “smart fence” protects “the character of the country”

When faced with a massive influx of African immigrants, PM Benjamin Netanyahu said in 2011, “This growing wave threatens Israelis’ jobs, is changing the character of the country and we must stop it.” That is what any true leader would say, if he or she desired to protect and preserve the concept of national identity.

Over the last several years, an inflow of illegal aliens from Africa led to major tensions within Israel over what to do about illegal immigration. In Tel Aviv in 2012, a crisis of rising crime, disorder, and rape infuriated locals, and many saw the crisis as being brought on by the illegal aliens, called “illegal infiltrators” in Israel. Over 1,000 local citizens demonstrated against what they saw as uninvited infiltrators, carrying signs that read: “Return them now,” and “If we keep silent we will become strangers in our own neighborhoods.”

The Tel Aviv protests intensified after several horrendous rapes. In one, two African migrants were arrested for raping a 15-year-old, while a third held the victim’s boyfriend. Several months later, demonstrations followed the rape of an 83-year-old Israeli woman. The elderly woman, said police, “was raped and beaten for hours in the courtyard of her apartment building near the central bus station in south Tel Aviv by a young Eritrean migrant,” according to the Jerusalem Post. Police were able to trace the assailant’s DNA because he had a prior arrest for trying to steal a woman’s bag.

Seventy-year-old Sophie Menashe of Tel Aviv reportedly says, “South Tel Aviv is South Sudan now. It’s no longer Tel Aviv[.] . . . And I’m scared all the time.”

Israel’s immigration and border protection policy is not simply based in security concerns. Issues of crime and cultural cohesion also play a large role in shaping Israel’s approach to immigration. That approach has included the construction of a sophisticated barrier fence, aggressive deportation, and the use of the military to protect the border. The Israeli military has, over the last several years, turned away huge numbers of African asylum seekers, mostly from Eritrea and Sudan, at the border. The Israeli army position is that it will act to “prevent illegal infiltration” as per “directives from the political echelon.” Also, the Israeli cabinet devotes resources to enforce the law against illegal aliens and their employers.

Israel protects its border, motivated in part by an awareness of the great civilizational importance of national boundaries. “Just like the Chinese protected themselves and defended themselves with the Great Wall,” PM Netanyahu says, “so we will continue to defend ourselves on the southern border, the Golan Heights and on all fronts.”

How, and why, has Israel enacted an effective border strategy, while we have not? Israel is uniquely threatened by its immediate neighbors, but surely national defense is not the only reason to have an effective fence and a genuine border. While it’s true that our border would require a longer fence, the length of our borders is a reason to take illegal immigration seriously, not a reason to surrender our sovereignty. Building an effective fence is just a matter of available technology and political will. Put another way, the national will to survive–with a distinct national culture–is all it takes to justify a real border.

Britain’s Most Popular Party Calls for Five-Year Immigration Moratorium

In England, arguably the nation most similar to our own in customs, both major parties pledged to restrict immigration, and popular backlash forced PM Cameron to set a cap on immigration. Labour Party head Ed Milliband, a possible future PM, says, “I do want to get low skill immigration down and therefore overall immigration down.” PM David Cameron said last year, “Net migration needs to come down radically . . . from hundreds of thousands a year to just tens of thousands.”

The two major parties are being forced into those positions by popular opposition to mass immigration, which has given rise to a pro-citizen third party, UKIP–now the most popular party in Britain. The leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, recommends a five-year immigration moratorium. Farage points out, “In scores of our cities and market towns, this country in a short space of time has frankly become unrecognisable.”

Britain has had to endure rioters on welfare, the 7/7 bombings, the savage slaying of Lee Rigby, and the transformation of entire English neighborhoods into autonomous Islamic enclaves. One influential radical cleric, who is on English welfare, encourages Muslims to go on welfare as a form of plunder and jizya, or an extra tax imposed on non-Muslims. The British have begun to fight back, as UKIP’s success shows.

France’s Marine Le Pen: “Immigration is an organized replacement of our population.”

The French, unsurprisingly, are demonstrating a desire to maintain their sovereignty, starting with stricter control over their national border to control a spike in illegal immigration. The “far-right” party Front National achieved a record victory in last month’s EU election, finishing ahead of France’s two major parties. The EU election was described in the European press as an “earthquake” and a “breakthrough” for FN. Speaking about immigration, the FN’s president, Marine Le Pen, bluntly says:

Immigration is an organized replacement of our population. This threatens our very survival. We don’t have the means to integrate those who are already here. The result is endless cultural conflict.

Famous author Jean Raspail expresses the seriousness of French feelings towards immigration:

The model of integration isn’t working. Even if a few more illegals are escorted to the border and we succeed in integrating foreigners a bit more than today, their numbers will not stop growing and that will change nothing in the fundamental problem: the progressive invasion of France and Europe by a numberless third-world . . . They expect nothing of [their own governments] . . . They turn to us and arrive in Europe in boats, ever more numerous . . .

The FN’s rise appears to be a healthy reaction to the challenges posed by immigration in France. High rates of welfare use highlight immigrants’ purposeful refusal to assimilate, which brings France to the brink of a social catastrophe.

The Swiss Send “Shockwaves” with Immigration Restrictions

In February, Swiss voters sent “shockwaves” through the European PC open borders establishment by narrowly passing a national referendum to limit immigration from EU nations. The reasons were simple: the Swiss people have a long-standing concern about being “swamped” by foreigners, and strict limits on immigration are intended to maintain their national identity. Also, justifiable public outrage over “welfare tourism” demanded a response.

The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) promoted the referendum initiative. SVP head Toni Brunner said, “We have too much immigration. With our initiative, Switzerland gets back the ability to control and restrict and select appropriate personnel for the job market.”

Defying the social, political, and economic “ruling class,” the referendum demonstrated “the people’s exercise of their sovereign power,” as Angelo Codevilla writes. The immigration referendum follows a 2013 referendum to restrict asylum, which passed with 78% of the popular vote, and a 2009 ban on the construction of minarets.

Widespread Pro-Citizen Sentiment in Italy

Sixty-four percent of Italians, a higher percentage than the people of any country in a 47-country Pew Research poll, see immigration as a “very big problem.” Italian views toward immigration are shaped in part by the startling experience of Lampedusa, a small Mediterranean island.

The island has become a favorite target for African and Middle Eastern “migrants” and “asylum” seekers, many of whom are in fact economic migrants.

Boatload after boatload of “migrants” attempt illegal entry to Lampedusa. Once they arrive, their sense of entitlement quickly boils over. Lampedusa’s mayor says, “We have here young Tunisians who arrogantly want everything immediately, just like criminals, ready to endanger our lives and theirs.” Italian journalist Enza Ferreri described one of the vibrant cultural encounters that ensued:

At the height of the immigration flux, confronted with an unprecedented crisis and left to their own devices to deal with it, the people of Lampedusa used ‘direct action’ methods.

They stopped the Italian Coast Guard patrol boat, loaded with still more ‘rescued’ North Africans. Women occupied the harbour and docks, chained themselves, overturned wheelie bins and blocked the road. Fishermen pulled boats to the entrance to the harbour. ‘Nobody enters here any more,’ the women shouted from the quay where patriotic flags were flying. To chants of ‘freedom!’ they raised a banner: ‘We are full.’

Last year, a boatload of “clandestine immigrants” capsized on the way to the island, and hundreds drowned. For his part, the pope chimed in and attempted to make the Italians feel guilty for the fact that thousands of unwelcome aliens foolishly endanger themselves in their reckless effort to enter Italy illegally.

Despite all of the manufactured guilt, and all of the theoretical enrichment that immigration is supposed to bring, the Italians remain unconvinced.

Norway–“Some people feel they’re waking up one morning and their old neighborhood is gone.”

You know the neighborhood has gone downhill when the liberal social workers leave. The New York Times told the partially amusing story of the Ulvestrand family, who decided to leave their Norwegian hometown when too many immigrants moved in. Ms. Ulvestrand, whom the Times described as “a former development worker in Latin America and a social worker with Norway’s immigrants,” revealed her preferences with her feet. “I loved the forest and had friends, but ethnic Norwegians were moving out, so my children were losing friends,” she told the Times.

“After a while we discovered that when kids were 5 or 6, everyone moved out. We wanted a stable environment, and we had some questions about the social challenges at the school.” The “social challenges” evidently outweighed the strengths of diversity for the social worker.

“I felt a bit guilty about moving, having worked in Latin America with minorities and defending their rights,” she said. “It wasn’t just ethnic Norwegians, it was anyone with resources moved out.” In other words, her left-wing ideology didn’t matter as much as her children’s future. Of course, people like her still go on supporting mass immigration and welfare dependence; she’ll just evade the consequences of her sensitivities by distancing herself from certain towns and neighborhoods.

Quite understandably, some Norwegians ask why they should sponsor welfare for people who don’t share their values. A leader of Norway’s Progress Party told the Times:

Some people feel they’re waking up one morning and their old neighborhood is gone . . . Strangers move in and people don’t even understand what they’re saying; we have a generous welfare system, and you feel a stranger in your own neighborhood.

Welfare abuse in Norway led to the introduction of the term “naving,” named for NAV, the Norwegian welfare bureaucracy Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration. “Naving” was named the most popular new Norwegian word of the year in 2012. Earlier this year, one Progress Party leader called for a national referendum to restrict immigration, inspired by the Swiss example.

Israel, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Norway. The people of these nations cannot be dismissed as thoughtless or xenophobic. The nationalist leadership of Europe and Israel put America’s politicians to shame. Underlying this contrast, it is sad to say, the citizens of those nations–in the aggregate–have spoken out with more patriotism and a greater sense of national self-preservation than Americans have so far.

    “Some people feel they’re waking up one morning and their old neighborhood is gone.”

    Something Americans have learned to take as a matter of course over the last fifty years.

    • Sick of it

      In just the past ten years, I’ve seen white neighborhoods go completely black. Blacks had never lived there before. My friends grew up in those nice suburban neighborhoods.

  • It’s not that we don’t have the same feelings, or desire real patriotic immigration reform any less than the white citizens in the aforementioned countries. It’s just that our political system isn’t conducive to translating our political efforts into actual policy change, and our work often gets drowned out and filtered out in a sea of greed, treason and ideology.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I don’t blame the rest of the world for trying to bring down the United States. No one wants any country to be stronger than their own. America has become the country of gay marriage, Jerry Springer, and the Kardashians. It is turning into what turned Lot’s wife into salt. Americans have become lazy, sedentary, and will probably need a slap to the face to wake up. Think what another October 29, 1929 will do for race relations.

    • Geo1metric

      ” Think what another October 29, 1929 will do for race relations.”

      I made essentially that same comment a few years ago on another blog, and was accused of being a “naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews”.

      There is an incredible amount of denial about what is happening to our country.

      I think often about what will happen when another 10-29-29 occurs. I think it will be a watershed event for not only race in America, but for many other relationships. The Great Reckoning.

      • ThomasER916

        That denial is right here at Amren where they stop anyone who dares to name the Culture of Critique. Do it at Amren and at a minimum you’re censored.

    • CalMark

      What’s wrong with same-sex marriage?

  • JSS

    Amurrika has no sense of self preservation because it operates under the idea that just standing on its soil makes you an Amurrikan. It has no bonds of blood and tradition. It is only a pressure cooker of Whites carrying the weight for a bunch of squabbling 3rd worlders and grievance groups. No such monstrosity could ever command respect or loyalty because it stands for nothing worth sacrificing for. It deserves to perish.

    • Anglo

      I’m a WASP from a long Southern heritage. When I was in school, we spoke of our forefathers — not the founding fathers — because they are our forefathers. We
      spoke of England as the mother country; it was unimaginable that any language
      other than English would be our native language. What will arise from our destruction, I cannot say; but it grieves me deeply.

      • Geo1metric

        Yes. And think about the fact that no other peoples have allowed there country to be taken from them without firing a shot.

      • Mary

        I come from the same background and it grieves me deeply as well. Many of my ancestors were prominent in colonial America and for years beyond. In addition to deep grief, I also feel deep anger for the traitors and profligates who have led us to where we are now, and where we are likely headed. I literally cannot articulate my feelings for this motley collection of toxic people.

      • CourtneyfromAlabama

        I am a WASP of Southern heritage too. I was a child of the Reagan/Bush/Clinton years. It is amazing how much has changed even from when I was in Elementary School. I remember singing “My country Tis of Thee” every morning after saying the Pledge. I also remember most of the human characters in cartoons back then were very blonde and waspy. Commercials were the same way.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Only our naive western elites could believe something so stupid as third world invaders magically becoming westerners because they step foot on western soil. If a white man steps foot in China, does he become Chinese? If he goes to Japan, does he suddenly become Japanese? No racial foreigner can become an Anglo-Saxon simply by landing on English soil or assuming the trappings of Anglo-Saxon civilization. The high level of civilization achieved by the Anglo-Saxon is simply a consequence of thinking, feeling and acting Anglo-Saxon, which is something that only persons of Anglo-Saxon blood are capable of doing. Western culture has a racial source, which is why it always withers away and dies when taken over by racial foreigners.

      • JSS

        The average White American is naive, our overlords who are mostly kosher and not White are just plain evil. But if the soil idea we are supposed to buy is true then I have been Italian, German, British, Iraqi and an Afghan seeing as how I’ve spent awhile in all those countries. None of them ever offered me citizenship though. How xenophobic.

  • Chasmania

    I’ve posted on other sites about this, and I’ll repeat it here.
    I think things are going to have to get much worse before the average American will leave his ‘recliner ensconced, remote in hand’ comfort zone. It’s too bad we have so many politicians and left wing types who seek to destroy the culture and makeup of this country.

    • HJ11

      What is the “average American,” of which you speak? I am not that. I am a White person from a long line of White people and I happen to live on this piece of dirt called America.

      • Chasmania

        Okay, so you’re not. What’s your point ?

      • Nevsky

        Funny, I always thought you were British when I saw your posts on the Green Arrow’s old blog. Then again, I assumed everyone was British back when I was into following BNP blogs.

  • connorhus

    We have had open borders and third world immigration for so long there is no National will left. It doesn’t matter if every American stands up and says close the border there are already so many Millions of non-Americans here that their voice is just as loud to the politicians.

    We have passed the point of political will doing any good and must now wait for the next solution in the process.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Like the Soviet Union, the multikulti regimes of the west cannot last forever because they pursue aims that are totally unsustainable by virtue of their utopian nature. Let’s hope that next solution to third world invasion involves revolution, mass expulsion, repatriation and finally, the establishment of a white ethnostate on American soil.

  • From Negro worship to mindless slogans (Diversity is our strength), the USA’s leaders in both parties have their reasons for wanting the white race subjugated and miscegenated–cheap labor for Repugs and welfare clients for demRats.

    You see it in the anti-south bias and in the bias against working class whites. I’ve recently begun studying National Socialism as a possible remedy.

    The denigration of my working class southern white ancestors by the white power elites angers me to a degree that I cannot begin to describe. Resistance by any means necessary is the answer I am gravitating toward.

    • IstvanIN

      Useless slogans to convince us of a lie, just like the Soviets and Moaists used to convince their populations of the correct way to think before throwing them in the gulag.

      • bilderbuster

        Mindless slogans, useless slogans…
        I like to call them Obviously Stupid Slogans especially the ADL’s public schools slogan “Diversity is Our Strength” that Bill Clinton promoted with the absurd “Diversity is Our Greatest Strength”.
        Diverse peoples have nothing in common and are a divisive bunch whereas people who have much in common are in united and unity is strength.
        United peoples will overcome a diverse divided people every time.

    • Nancy Thomas

      I’m with you, and I too resent the anti-southern bias. I think it will be the south that saves us in the end.

    • connorhus

      Don’t forget the “We are all immigrants” slogan/lie.

      • Geo1metric

        That applies to everyone on the face of the earth; thus it is meaningless noise.

      • bilderbuster

        Another obviously stupid slogan.
        America was built by White settlers and pioneers.

      • refocus

        Don’t Mess With Texas !

    • The Verdict of History

      They shall particularly insist upon miscegenation between Whites on the one hand and Latinos and Black folk on the other hand, since a massive, teaming and confused population of low-IQ types is easier to control and manipulate.

      After all, why would they want all those folks walking around with normal IQs, (near 100 or above) using critical reasoning to undermine their corrosive plans?

  • coco bongo

    Smaller countries feel the impact of racial aliens much more quickly than a large country like the US. If you live in a place like Idaho, Wyoming, or North Dakota, you are not going to get the full-on benefits of diversity that Detroit, Houston, or Miami provides. In countries as small as Britain you’re going to feel the blessings of enrichment much more quickly.

    And no, I don’t blame Israel one bit for being African averse. Just stop the hypocracy. They don’t belong in Sweden either.

    • Pro_Whitey

      That’s one of the hot button issues, how the likes of Sheldon Adelson and U.S. neocons are all for Israel’s border fence, even to the extent it keeps out economic migrant invaders as opposed to muslim invaders, but they give money and use their influence here to keep the borders wide open. We goys say what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, but, once again, we run into one rule for us, another rule for Israel.

    • bilderbuster

      Jews are foreigners in European lands and don’t belong there either.

      • CalMark

        Hmm. Anti-Jewish as well, huh?

        • bilderbuster

          Pro European there Sherlock and quite liberal I may add.
          I have no objection to allowing foreigners the privilege to visit as long as they comport themselves as guests at all times.

  • dd121

    At least a few people are waking up around the world.

  • Pelagian

    The US is more sluggish to change than Europe. Plus “equality” was never a bedrock principle in Europe as it was/is in the US. The Europeans had been adopting “equality” as a fashion, just like blue-jeans and Coca Cola. As long as we all still get misty-eyed on 4th of July watching air shows of bomber planes supposedly “protecting our values”, and those values are freedom/equality … the US will be a worse place to live than Europe.

  • Truth Teller

    ” Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Norway”
    What a load!. The writer obviously has never been to these countries in the last 40 years, especially the big cities. A Swiss immigrant friend from Geneva says every time he goes back for a visit there are more and more arab women in black shrouds.

    Writer needs to go to the countries about which he so ignorantly pontificates. Yes, there are some attempts to control immigration in those countries but they are like some of the state propositions in America that are ignored even though the federal courts uphold them.

    Well, I don’t work for amren, but it is not something I would post here as it is absolutely untrue.

    • ATBOTL

      Get a clue. The political debate in those countries is trending in the direction of stopping immigration. Anti-immigration parties get more votes every year and are the third largest party in many countries. Here, we don’t even have a debate. Look up the statistics. Non-European immigrants are less than 10% of the population in most European countries, and people are already fed up and rebelling.

      Many mainstream politicians in Europe are now saying they need less legal immigration, even on the left. The situation in Europe is nothing like here.

  • HJ11

    Where is America;s sense of self-preservation? Self-preservation for what? A Star Wars Bar nation that isn’t really a nation? When America was overwhelmingly White, there was a sense of self-preservation, and while it wasn’t stated in terms of genetic self-preservation, that was what it was really about.

    Now, in this blended Post American America, there is little to preserve that is worth anything. Should Whites fight just to preserve things for non-Whites? That makes no sense at all.

    • Nancy Thomas

      Uh….whites are going to have to fight just to protect their own butts….

      • HJ11

        No argument from me on Whites having to fight to protect their own butts…but, they have to fight just FOR Whites, and not for non-Whites who are wrongly lumped with Whites as “Americans.”

  • Nancy Thomas

    Our “leadership” is bought off filth, for the most part.

  • John Ambrose

    The reason it’s business as usual is in part due to our country’s two party political system. In Britain and France third parties have emerged to take the place of their spineless Torries and UMP who are just as useless as our Republicans. It’s not due to a dearth of citizens who are mad as h&ll about the Third World deluge destroying their communities (just look at the comments thread on immigration related stories at “mainstream” sites). What’s more, whenever there’s pushback against the invasion, some left-wing judge quickly tries to annul the will of the people. And then there’s this nation’s size which allows liberal whites living in places like Vermont and Iowa to hold the rest of the country hostage by their continuing votes for politicians who either are acquiescent or actively in favor of our insane immigration policies. Maybe if states started threatening succession and holding sovereignty referendums things would change. I don’t think the demographic disaster now unfolding in places like California and Texas would be happening if they were allowed to set their own immigration laws.

    • WR_the_realist

      You’re bitching about Vermont and Iowa when it is California and New York that have the most delegates and representatives and always support candidates that make the ones selected by Iowans look good.

      • ATBOTL

        Steve King, one of the only Republicans in Congress who is good in immigration is from Iowa.

        I would blame Southern conservatives for not embracing Buchanan the way Northeastern and Midwestern conservatives did in the primaries back in 92 and 96. Buchanan won New Hampshire and Iowa, but got little support south of the Mason Dixon. They went wild over Dubya, Dole and McCain down south though.

      • John Ambrose

        in Iowa’s defense they do have Rep. Steve King and if most congressmen were like him we wouldn’t be in this terrible mess. I just mentioned those two states because their mostly white electorate voted for magic Negro Obama in the primaries and then in the general election two times.

    • ATBOTL

      But Britain and France have had a mostly two party system for generations. We can’t keep using that as an excuse. 15% of the people in France have been voting FN for president for 20 years and they barely could even elect anyone to local office, let alone to Parliament. But they didn’t give up or go back to the sell out conservatives. They kept fighting and now victory seems in sight.

      American conservatives have chosen to be lazy and foolish and now we are gonna pay.

  • John R

    Nice that some nations are restricting immigration, but a lot more needs to be done. First immigration needs to be ENDED! Not restricted. Restricted is just like saying, “I will kill you, only I will do it more slowly…” Secondly, yes, do the Serb thing: ETHNIC CLEANSING! Europe should just deport all Muslims! To HECK with fears of terrorism. No Muslims, no terrorists. And the US should implement a Roosevelt solution: Deport all illegals AND Mexican Americans from the Southwestern United States. Yes, ALL OF THEM! Racist? No, on the grounds of national security. We can’t have a large region of our country occupied by people from a foreign nation that has historical grievances against the United States over it’s border with us. That is what Poland and Chechoslovakia did with the Germans living in their midst. All the other measures will be too little too late.

    • bilderbuster

      A couple of glaring “mistakes” there on the subject where you justify the abuse and murder of Germans
      Czechoslovakia was an artificial nation created after WW1 from German territory populated by Germanic people.
      The same with Poland.
      The “Polish Corridor” and Danzig were German territory populated with Germanic people unjustly given to the new Polish nation after Germany’s defeat in WW1 by The Treaty of Versailles.

      • adplatt126

        Part true. Not completely however. My favorite part about the end of World War 1, was how Wilson argued for intervention on the grounds of national sovereignty, and then saw his idealistic notions crash to the pavement at Versailles, as the Brits, the French and Eastern Europeans basically took all that they could from former dominant states in central Europe. Elsass, Lorraine, Schlessen, Posen even the regions that didn’t want to be part of France or the Czech Republic or Germany, according to plebiscites taken at the time were given away to the victors. And then my favorite, the icing on the cake, the noble, just Western governments refused to permit Austria to reunite with greater Germany (even though a strong majority supported it and it was obviously in their national and military interest), despite this whole war and ordeal allegedly being about democracy and self-determination, when in fact, most all of it was simply about weakening German military power. Such lying, sniveling hypocrits. The Brits, ugh, stupidest, most power-crazed race of all, so intent on maintaining their own empire that they made a deal with the devil to keep it. Why on Earth would America side with the communists over the Nazis, can someone explain that to me? For all the flaws of the Nazis, the Germans were a Western people essentially protecting Western Europe. And why were we in the Western theatre in WW2 anyhow? Why not just stay out, since our intervention in WW1 was one of the primary causes for WW2 and did no good? We were so obviously pushed in by the most powerful diplomats/propagandists (ethnic cohorts, you can guess which). Hell, why were we involved in WW1 in the first place? Unrestricted submarine warfare? LOL! The Germans were using submarine warfare to counter the blockade of all of their major ports. 500,000 Germans starved to death during that blockade. That’s our excuse for the war? If you defend yourself against a blockade and don’t willingly allow your people to starve to death, we’ll enter the war and obliterate you. How truly insane. Yeah, Germans are the only possible aggressors. Maybe in Judeo-Marxo land.

      • John R

        Not meaning to argue over the settlements at the end of WWI. Perhaps a better analogy would be eastern Ukraine, with it’s large Russian speaking population causing agitation for absorption into Russia. Anyway, I hope you got my point. Thank you.

        • bilderbuster

          I prefer your Ukraine analogy much better.
          Now you make a most excellent point in which I’m in full agreement with : )

  • JohnEngelman

    This article is encouraging. I did not know that there was this much resistance in Europe to third world immigration.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Small steps in the right direction. But the Germans are still too loaded down with guilt to stand up.

      • adplatt126

        Not really. There’s more resistance in Germany than elsewhere culturally and ideologically. Unfortunately there are legal restrictions on populist and racist parties in Germany, owing to the legacy of Nazism. There are structural difficulties there, not ideological ones. The Germans are as racist as ever, deep down. Count on it. Remember when they heard they had to bail out Greece? Or when Merkel declared multiculturalism an utter failure? It was only 1993 that they repealed jus sanguins.

      • ATBOTL

        Germany has a good economy and relatively few NON-EUROPEAN immigrants. Most of the those are Turks, who are much better behaved and whiter than Pakistanis and Morrocans found in other European countries.

  • kenfrombayside

    Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
    – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
    – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
    – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
    – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
    – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
    – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
    – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.

    “If we keep silent we will become strangers in our own neighborhoods.”

    There’s something to be said for having the gift of understatement.

    A fence would be unnecessary in racially homogenious society. It would be relatively obvious who belongs and who doesn’t. Any non-white would have a wife or husband who would claim them. Or not claim them. Whether or not white immigration from the outside would become a problem would remain to be seen. Let’s try it and see if it becomes a problem.

    Huh? Is the Third World invasion over now that UKIP has won a plurality of EU seats from the U.K.? As far as I know these right wing parties control very few seats in the national parliaments.

    Lawrence Auster used to remark on the tendency towards triumphalism in mainstream conservatives. I still see this at American Thinker. Recently one of their writers declared that affirmative action was doomed to die a slow death since the Supreme Court issued a narrowly defined ruling upholding one state’s ban on it in college admissions. Really? How would he know? Now the author of this article assumes that everything is fine in Europe. Never mind that English cities have already been transformed beyond recognition.

    While we can appreciate the sentiments expressed in this article, we have to be wary of the mainstream conservative tendency to want to assume that everything is fine. They will latch onto any little ray of hope and then declare victory. Something tells me this is more than just wishful thinking and is partly a form of disinformation.

      The issue is that voters in Europe are demanding something be done about immigration in a way they are not here. The anti-immigrant parties have seen their vote explode in recent years and more people are leaning in that direction but haven’t made the plunge yet.

      The mainstream politicians and media across Europe are much friendlier to immigration restriction than they are here too.

      • Hal K

        You are right that things are being done in some countries. In some cases these are just half-measures. The article uses Front National and UKIP as an indication that things are being done in France and the U.K., but that is misleading. As others have pointed out, things would be somewhat similar in the U.S. if we didn’t have a de facto two-party system.

        Europe has a basic advantage over us in that they have indigenous white national identities. At the same time, white Europeans have a lower birth rate, so the situation can become critical there much more quickly. In fact, the situation already is critical in some countries, I believe, and these countries are nowhere near doing what has to be done.

  • MBlanc46

    Our elites (with Western Europeans perhaps a close second) are the prime movers of globalization and the elimination of national borders with regard to labor and capital flows. They not only do not want to stop mass Third World immigration, they want more of it faster. It doesn’t matter what the rest of us want.

  • The Final Solution

    Americans are eager to welcome their new masters. From today’s news: “Hispanic Audiences Are in the Driver’s Seat in Hollywood”
    Also the new “Miss USA”, Nia Sanchez, hails from the new Mexican territory of Nevada. The new multicultural narrative to replace the last remnants of white America.

    Le Pen said it best : ” Immigration is an organized replacement of our population”.
    That’s exactly what it is and anyone who is unwilling to admit who the organizers of this massive “ethnic cleansing” are for fear of being called an anti-semite or a racist is guilty of being an enabler of White Genocide!

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    For one thing, we need to drop this shallow cliche which states “we are a nation of immigrants”. If you think about it, every country started off from immigrants.

    • FransSusan

      It’s really silly to say we are a nation of immigrants. What does that matter? When the original settlers of this country arrived here they weren’t greeted by welfare programs paid for by the people already here that provide everything, everything. The original settlers had to toil for their livelihood….for their lives! They made this country from scratch. I absolutely hate that trite phrase: “we are a nation of immigrants.” It’s truly dumb.

  • Nevsky

    So… white American ethnostate or rejoin our kinsmen in Europe?

    • Nevsky

      Personally, I used to be a big proponent of the ethnostate idea, but now I’m not sure if it can ever truly arise. White Americans are too individualistic and what’s worse, we don’t really see ourselves as a people. Mind you, that’s not necessarily true for Southerners, but in the North, it certainly seems that way.

      We could try to build a genuine folk identity in the northern US, but is there truly enough time to build one?

  • …..”Great Britain {is one} of the Western nations that energetically guard their territorial
    integrity.”
    {…}
    “In England, arguably the nation most similar to our own in customs, both major parties pledged to restrict immigration, and popular backlash forced PM Cameron to set a cap on immigration. Labour Party head Ed Milliband, a possible future PM, says, “I do want to get low skill immigration down and therefore overall immigration down.” PM David Cameron said last year, “Net migration needs to come down radically . . from hundreds of thousands a year to just tens of thousands.”

    ———-

    Forgive me when I crease up laughing at the above excerpt from the article.

    I think it must take a foriegner to write this with a straight face, because everybody here knows that it is bullshine and that all the noises of “caps” and “restrictions” are not worth the paper they may be written on.

    As a theoretical argument to push forward a view that there ought to be restrictions and a defence of national identity, fair enough…….but in reality, it is not happening and will not happen for some time yet – if at all.

    • curri

      Considering the source, I think the article is intended as Right-Zionist propaganda pushing the anti-Islamic front position. The author has been around long enough to know the truth-so his immigration optimism is clearly a ruse.

    • ATBOTL

      You’re missing the point. Here in the USA, it would considered a thought crime for any politician to say something like that. They would be furiously denounced by the entire media and their own party and would probably be forced to resign.

      You need to appreciate that nationalist views are much more tolerated in the UK than in the USA. We don’t have newspapers running articles about the negative effects of asylum seekers like you do. We have a “right wing” in America that won’t say anything about immigration other than we need more of it than we get now.

      • I hear what you’re saying. You have it a little more restricted over there as a kind of “two party” straight-jacket whereas at least we have some scope for voicing dissent and a (two faced) media like the Daily Mail to push everybody’s buttons about immigration – and then work them over with a journalistic baseball bat when anybody decides to speak up or take a stand.

        As I say though, as a theoretical argument of what nations like England are saying in their political and media narrative – “caps”, “restrictions”, “restructuring benefits”, and so son – it is perfectly fine. I have no problems with the article at all and I appreciate the kind of view it is trying to put forward.

        In reality though, I do not think it holds up to scrutiny. The bluster and the rhetoric of politicians and tabloids has changed nothing in the last 15 years – in fact, it has got even worse.

        We have a political class that is international socialist / globalist – and who secretly see nation states as redundant relics of the past. I do not think they are making efforts to secure our nation, protect our integrity, or otherwise guard our territory.

        The past governments were in secret talks to give away some of our last remaining outposts, and whilst they send our army and navy into foreign countries to fend off Islamic fundamentalists and bring “democracy” – they are allowing hundreds of thousands of Muslims into Britain and watching as places like Tower Hamlets in London descend into farce when it comes to operating a “democracy”.

        Maybe you have a harder time of it over there because the American people have been fed the line that it is a “melting pot” and a “proposition nation” for too long., ie, that you are a “nation of immigrants” and that there is no definitive “American” nation to actually safeguard.

        We both know it is a lie. They have manufactured the same claims here too and unfortunately it is working to some degree.

        • Nevsky

          What really gets to me is when the anti-whites in England denigrate the English as “mongrels” when nothing could be further from the truth. Most “Anglo-Saxon” DNA derives from indigenous bloodlines that predate even the arrival of the Celts.

          “Mongrel” should become the native British equivalent of the “n-word.” The m-word!!! 😉

  • Bill E. BOBB

    all part of obama’s scheme to marginalize the white race in america, he wants to take power and wealth from whites and hand it to blaks and mexicans

  • Truth Teller

    Claiming that the European and Israeli attitudes towards 5th world immigration are similar is the most ridiculous thing American Thinker has written in a long time. Whatever the average European may think, the powers are committed to unlimited 5th world immigration. In Israel, the power structure is committed to an ethnic religious state. In Israel it is the ordinary business owner who wants to bring in cheap labor from black africa, not the elites who want to preserve an ethnic religious state.

  • Truth Teller

    adplatt126 is absolutely right about WWs 1 and 2. In WW1 we were dragged in by massive British lobbying. We were dragged into WW2 by both British and jewish lobbying and propaganda.

  • Truth Teller

    I agree with Hal K about American Thinker. Every once in a while they have an article triumphing the end of abortion because one state outlawed day of birth abortion. Their facts are often wrong. They always build up the slightest thing into a triumph for conservatism someday, somewhere, sometime.
    Anyway, the conservative movement is not pro White. It is anti abortion, anti gay, pro gun, anti minimum wage, pro cut throat capitalism, pro Israel????? pro Christian, pro marriage but not pro White.
    Read American Thinkers pontificating on the wrongness of minimum wage. On and on, if it were not for minimum wage there would be a Burger Kind on every block filled with gainfully employed people. AT never mentions that most of the fast food employees are illegal hispanics.
    I am a White nationalist. I am against affirmative action. I think all blacks should be sterilized surgically, the girls at 10 the boys at birth. They would be gone in 80 years. I think every person who does not have 4 grandparents born in this country should be deported back to where ever. I am pro abortion because abortion is good for Whites. I an anti Christian because American Christianity is bad for Whites.
    Most of all, I detest the conservative movement’s patriotism and love for America. America hates Whites so why should we love America?
    i say this as a Mayflower descendant from the Aldens. Another ancestor arrived in Kentucky around 1810 and was a founder of Frankfort. America hates me and mine and all Whites. Why should we not hate America?
    As Kevin MacDonald wrote, “never in history has an elite surrendered to a hostile invader so quickly and completely.”

    AT is similar to NR’s namby pamby god and flag garbage.

    • ATBOTL

      “I am a White nationalist. I am against affirmative action. I think all blacks should be sterilized surgically, the girls at 10 the boys at birth.”

    AmericanThinker also blames the decline of detoilet on unions and a family living wage. it also blames disfunctional black and hispanic schools on teacher’s unions.
    Mainstream conservatism along with patriotism and pride in America is worthless to save Whites.

  • Truth Teller

    National Review, another useless mainstream conservative goverment of Israel front has a laudatory article about Ms Sanchez the new Miss USA. Apparently she said something that does not quite toe the latest feminazi line about rapes on college campuses.
    Next week NR will probably have yet another article about how hispanics will vote Republican because of shared Christian family values.
    One thing that really gets me about the southern old testament protestant worship and support of Israel is their total ignorance of how jews loathe old testament or fundamentalist or evangelical or whatever those old testament southern protestants are called. Jews and the adl ajc etc jewish leadership hate Christianity but they hate old testament fundamentalist protestants more than they hate the Pope or the eastern orthodox arabs who fight them or an other version of Christianity.

  • MarcB1969

    The US White population has been effectively narcotized and brainwashed
    for decades, hence the fact that sites like AmRen are marginalized
    instead of being mainstream and heavily trafficked. The majority of
    people aware of the invasion are placated by watching Fox News, reading
    Drudge, listening to talk radio or voting for Tea Party candidates.

    Nothing will change until Whites unplug from their
    programmers barring significant economic collapse or large scale
    “restlessness” from the non-white populations. European Americans will
    put aside our largely superficial differences when we have no other
    choice, and form a parallel society that provides the desired level of
    sovereignty from the corrupted majority culture. Whites will need to
    consciously form economic and social partnerships exclusive of the
    majority population, to the point where we conduct business and
    socialize with each other to the exclusion of non-whites aside from the
    essentials.

  • Truth Teller

    American wishful Thinker neglected to mention that no matter what individual nations may or may not do, the European Union rules Europe as our federal govt rules the states. Italy could evacuate its citizens and level Lampuedsa under the water and the EU would still insist that Italy take in hordes of africans.

  • Gianni_Paolinzetti

    Sorry, but regrettably, none of those countries mentioned, except arguably Israel, “energetically guard their territorial integrity”…

    • ThomasER916

      In an ethno-state you fight for your people.

      In a proposition state you fight for a slogan.

      If Americans fought to guard their integrity they’d be called “Nazis”, and it would be fairly accurate considering the same ethnic Marxists are destroying that integrity.

  • Bartek

    What is Bennett even trying to say? The only country he mentioned that has effectively regulated migration and controlled its borders is Israel (got to stay pure).
    All of the European (White) Nations he mentioned are a virtual free for all for “asylum seekers” and “refugees” (non Whites only, please(sarc)).
