Obama “Hopeful” Immigration Will Drown Conservatism

Neil Munro, Daily Caller, February 9, 2015

The spread of vibrant social diversity is constricting the GOP’s ability to champion conservative causes, such as smaller government and independent families, President Barack Obama said in a softball media interview.

“Over the long term, I’m pretty optimistic, and the reason is because this country just becomes more and more of a hodgepodge of folks,” Obama told Vox editor Ezra Klein.

“People are getting more and more comfortable with the diversity of this country, much more sophisticated about both the cultural differences but more importantly, the basic commonality that we have,” he said in his talk, which was recorded Jan 23.


In his Vox interview, Obama predicted that immigration would overwhelm conservative causes.

If “you go to Tennessee and it turns out that you’ve got this huge Kurdish community. And you go to some little town in Iowa and you see some Hasidic Jewish community, and then you see a bunch of interracial black and white couples running around with their kids . . . in these little farm communities, and you’ve got Latinos in the classroom when you visit the schools there,” he said.

“So people are getting more and more comfortable with the diversity of this country, much more sophisticated about both the cultural differences but more importantly, the basic commonality that we have,” he said.

That diversity hinders conservative priorities, he said.

Those goals include support for families so they can independently govern themselves and their kids.

“The Republican party, even the most conservative, they have much less ability, I think, to express [opposition to single-sex marriage] than they did even 10 years ago,” Obama said.


He replayed the rhetorical trick in his Vox interview, saying “the Republican Party, even the most conservative, they have much less ability, I think, to express discriminatory views than they did even 10 years ago.”

“And that’s a source of optimism. It makes me hopeful,” he said.

    For the left, that’s the immediate end game.

    • TruthBeTold

      He only said what we’ve known all along.


        “He only said what we’ve known all along.” – And what Conservatism Inc. has consistently convinced, < or at least consistently says they are convinced, you know, as to not run afoul with the Sheldon Adelson's of the world ) themselves and attempt to convince their constituents. That such dramatic demographic change will have no effect on their ability to not just win elections, but to even remain relevant in the country our forefathers built. It's willful idiocy for some, and blatant treason for most.

        • Oil Can Harry

          Obama and the Left agree with Pat Buchanan that “Demography is Destiny”. That’s why leftist pols throughout the West push open borders.

          Idiot RINOs fail to understand that whites are the only people who’ve ever shown any interest in conservatism or libertarianism.

  • Dave4088

    Conservative is just a synonym for white person in this context. Translated from his deceptive Marxist babble Hussein Mugabe is admitting that mass third world immigration is being used as a political weapon against the shrinking white majority and to enfranchise non-whites at the expense of whites.

  • That’s because “conservatism” and its adherents are so inept that it doesn’t occur to them to think a couple of moves ahead of Obama and the left on the chessboard.

    If they want to elect a new people in order to elect the left, then we do away with elections.

  • John Ambrose

    Of course bringing in Third World immigrants is designed to ruin the electoral prospects of conservatives. The hopelessly STUPID Republican leadership continues to dither and do nothing concrete to stop Obama’s illegal amnesty, mandate E-verify, end birthright citizenship or enact a time out on mass legal immigration. They talk tough to get elected and then once they’re safely in power they just sit on their hands and do nothing.

    • WR_the_realist

      There are a few Republican congressmen who really do want to do something. Maybe a dozen or so. But they are vastly outnumbered by the pod people.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    Obama’s moral rationale for his executive orders is relevant here:

    “If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave there have been periods where the folks who were already here have said, ‘Well I don’t want those folks,’ even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.” (President Obama: Chicago Speech on Immigration Executive Action, Dec. 2014)

    You have no right to object to your country being turned into a “hodge-podge” of peoples and cultures.

    • Uninvited Guest

      I think we are well past that point, but weak-minded leftists believe it. If they think that maybe they should be the first to leave.


      Actually now that I think of it Europeans built this country into what it is so by that logic we DO have a right to decide who should benefit from it.

    • WR_the_realist

      Channeling David Yeagley, I’m sure he objects.

    • Charles Martel

      And look what the government did to the Indians!

    • Pelayo

      And even then they don’t care.

  • DaveMed

    this country just becomes more and more of a hodgepodge of folks…

    Keep waving that flag, people!

    God bless the hodgepodge!

  • MG Huffman

    Obama uses cute little phrases like “hodgepodge of folks” to sound more like the practical, common man. He also says that the people appreciating diversity are the more “sophisticated.” America is turning into a third-world nonwhite slum; and there is nothing either practical or sophisticated about that. A practical and sophisticated society is a society whose citizens are bounded by blood and by common culture and are led by a government whose intentions are to keep it that way.

    • Bossman

      The USA is a great experiment. If cross-breeding of the races is encouraged, then indeed it will be a society bounded by blood and a common culture, Brazil is another big country in the Americas, they have chosen the cross-breeding model for their society. As far as I can see, they are producing a gradual whitening of their society.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Boycott Iowa.

        Iowa is approx 95% white; yet Iowa democrats gave Hussein a critical victory in the 2008 caucuses which catapulted him to the dem nomination; and Iowans voted for him twice by substantial margins over McCain and Romney.

        • Dwight

          Exactly right. Iowans have no experience with the unmeasurable benefits of diversity. They vote accordingly.

          • Irish

            Same with Vermont..Mississippi has the highest percentage of Blacks of any State..And yet you’d be hard pressed to find one redder. This is generally blamed on White-Southern racism. . The old saying “Familiarity breeds contempt” comes to mind.

      • Reynardine

        Brazil is an utter muck hole.

        • Oil Can Harry

          And if you time-travelled back 50 or 60 years ago and told a random group of white Americans that someday the US will be just like Brazil you’d likely catch a beating.

          • Irish

            I started reading Patrick J Buchanan’s op-eds when I was 16 years old, when he first started talking about the Brazilification of our country. Sadly that’s approaching 30 years (both for me & the U.S.).. Just read his latest piece, he hasn’t lost a step..A true man of conscience who has the scars to prove it.

        • warforbankers

          It’s a hodgepodge: “Normally, Rio is numb to violence. Each year, the number of homicides in the city of 12 million people is about one-third that of the entire United States with its 320 million people.”

      Money, Sex, Violence.

  • TruthBeTold

    In our lifetime, the differences will be incremental. Over time, they will magnify.

    In 40-50 years, the US WILL be a ‘hodgepodge’. It will also be a nightmare.

    • connorhus

      I still think (hope) that there is a tipping point. There has to be. These immigrants are only here because they get all the welfare and assistance if they had to make a go of it on their own they wouldn’t make it. After the 2008 melt down we actually had a brief period where the Hispanics were going back in greater numbers than coming in. At some point when the world stops giving us money and faith in the printed dollar there will be a change. Can we Whites hold out that long? Again I hope so.

      • dmxinc

        A meltdown won’t change much.

        Remember the African saying as he pointed to a ship at anchor: “If it said “Slave ship to America” on the side, it would sink from all the people that would climb aboard” (or something to that effect).

        • connorhus

          Sure they want to come over when they have everything handed to them but once that ends they will beat feet for the warmest climate they can get to.

          • mobilebay

            Hope it isn’t Texas. Pretty warm here now. We’ve got all the “amigos”
            we need at present. No one else need apply.

          • Irish

            Texas is a majority non-White State where the most popular name for boy the last dozen years has been Jose. It’s still pretty ruby red at the moment because so much of that non-white potential electorate is illegal.. But not for long.. If our odds are tough now , wheres that path to 270 without the Lonestar State..Nonexistent..Searching for a little light at the end of the tunnel, but I expect it’s more likely a oncoming locomotive.

        • TruthBeTold

          I never heard that one. If you have a source or a link i’d love to see it.

          It might also make a good youtube gag.

            If the slavery was for a limited amount of time, millions of them would take it. Many Europeans came willingly as indentured servants to America during the days of slavery.

          • Dwight

            I read somewhere that American blacks have the highest standard of living over any all-black country. Turns out, slavery was a rich blessing for them. Who knew. They should all be very thankful for the institution.

          • Uninvited Guest

            I read a top ten list of the most racist countries and the USA was number one, obviously. Well behind some country were 80,000 blacks were genocided (maybe it was 800,000, it doesn’t really matter though does it?). I guess because the genocide was black on black, different shades I guess, it doesn’t carry too much weight.

            A contemporary version of voluntary indenture is THE solution to our burgeoning Mexican illegal alien problem…but nobody wants to hear about it.

            I have occasionally written about this on other sites.

          • LexiconD1

            Actually, I read it in several news sources, of both leanings, during that period.

      • SentryattheGate

        I agree with your argument, but add the factor of higher birthrates in the Third World, especially Afreaka, which douses my hope!

        • connorhus

          Agreed, but higher birth rates we are subsidizing and paying for ourselves. I hope a melt down would put an end to that too.

        • 1G25

          Cutting of all foreign aid, especially food and medicine, should affect the infant mortality rate, if not the birth rate.

          Same positive result.

          • SentryattheGate

            The UN will do as it pleases, despite the bulk of it’s $$$$ coming from US! The UN Food Program, the UN’s World Health Organization, etc. will continue to provide.

      • Irish

        Nope..Taint gonna happen that way. Nobody goes home, particularly when their children are automatic citizens at birth. To the contrary they try and encourage their people to join them in the new promised land..So what happens in the near/far/short term?..I believe I.q. is everything, and our genetic inherentance will insure Europeans & N.E. Asians will continue to dominate the upper rungs of American society, probably forever. But at a loss of the soul of our culture & what’s left of working class White folk..

        • connorhus

          Oh they will go somewhere else when the benefits are gone. They are not migrating here for the better weather or even for the honest job opportunities they are coming for the free stuff. Education, biased government jobs, free medical care, etc. Take that away and there is nothing to keep them here. Migrants have come and gone as the circumstances changed since time began. All you have to do is sour the milk so to speak.

    • benvad

      It already is.

  • Obama’s America – “A hodgepodge of folks.” This statement alone reveals the glaring contrast between he and our founding fathers who wanted a nation comprised of whites and whose lives were moral, decent and civil.

    Liberals foolishly think so long as there is lots of ‘diversity’ in a country – without any regard to the quality or ethical character of the population – everything will be just fine.

    • Whitetrashgang

      They are not that foolish.

  • superlloyd

    Vibrant social diversity equals violent societal dysfunction. There is no basic commonality between blacks and whites for evolutionary reasons.

  • tony soprano

    Hodgepodge= balkanization and internecine violence and the creation of a police state.Soon we will also have GATED communities and favelas run by gangs and full of drug dealers.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    Sadly, Obama is correct — the growing tide of non-white people will eventually drown out the more Conservative whites. And that’s exactly what the Democrats intended and started in motion in the 60s.

    • 1G25

      Secession of the red states, with strict voter qualifications, ZERO welfare for slugs and a strong 10th Amendment in the Constitution of the new confederation will be a good start for Anglo-Americans.

      • Irish

        Nice dream but if the openly Segregationist Governors in the South, in a country that was 90% White, not to mention having the support of nearly all of the White citizens of their States couldn’t buck the Federal Government what makes you think it’s gonna happen now that our hand is farrrr weaker?

  • RebelliousTreecko

    Hodgepodge sounds nice, but I prefer the word clusterfu*k.

    Probably the closest he’ll ever get to admitting the game’s about getting rid of white people.

    • Uninvited Guest

      He did say one of his goals was to fundamentally transform the country. The best way to destroy a country is to get rid of those who made it. FuTBAR.

    Actually, 50-years of government forced diversity, propaganda and indoctrination have forced or fooled many of the people into accepting what they cannot or will not change.

    The flaw in this liberal fools vision is that realists still exist.

  • Mary

    Obama is one of the most rabidly anti-White individuals in the country, which is no small feat. The subtext in all of his claptrap, couched in pro-diversity rhetoric is “f–k White people” and “f–k America” with a proudly extended middle finger. It amazes me that so many still cannot see this.

    • TruthBeTold

      Obama is just a front for other interests.

      • Mary

        Completely agree. Although I have no doubt that these are his heartfelt views as well.

        • Dwight

          No, I can’t say I do. I’ve heard the, “Obama is controlled by others and just doing what he is told to do,” lingo before. I don’t believe it. Obama has surrounded himself with radicals and tried to appoint as many of them as he could. Look at Holder among many others. Valerie Jarrett is an old time friend of the Obama’s and is his senior advisor. People say that Obama listens to her advice more than anyone else.

  • Jeb Bush will fix everything, make it all better.

      • John Smith

        I can see the wealthy liberal elite deciding that shifting the GOP irrevocably leftward is a better strategy than continually putting their hopes on the democrats, as eventually the people will tire of one-party mismanagement. They need to demoralize the people by offering them no hope of making a difference and continually playing off two left-wing parties, one more hardcore and the other less, as the only choices.

    Immigrants tend to be more hostile to blacks than whites who were born in the United States. Immigrants usually live near blacks. They see what they are like. They do not feel guilty about black poverty.

    • LHathaway

      Immigrants often do see what blacks are like. Many times they are abused horribly, and when killed by blacks, they are more likely to leave behind friends who knew them. You are incorrect about one thing, John. Immigrants do feel guilty about black poverty. Everyone in the world knows about black poverty and suffering and white oppression. In fact, they know too they are oppressed. They do feel guilty about black ‘poverty’ (certainly the media favors them). In the case of Hispanics, they don’t always sell their fellow Hispanics down river because of it.

      I read these stories on AmRen. Stories hyping up the Hispanic-black race war. I have a hard time imagining Hispanics are not victims too and we are only reading about the few times they are fighting back. In fact, I know this is true. At least I know blacks often consider hispanics easy crime pickins.

Why have conservatives rejected the clearly stated beliefs of Thomas Jefferson?

    • jaye ellis


      Our problems are not all based on interpretations of race denying Constitutions, laws.

      We are mostly losing brutal race wars, same as Whites faced, lost in Algeria, Rhodesia, Haiti, Detroit, Birmingham.

      Until you/we manage somehow to shake this terrible obsession with laws, economics and just see the world as it is, in clear racial, group conflicts for power or even survival, we’ll get nowhere.

      We might as well be Chicago Cubs fans and embrace always losing.
