Sailer on Bush’s real motivations
In a long article, Steve Sailer explains President Bush’s apparently senseless immigration proposal as resulting from two factors: Bush’s own intellectual emptiness, and his close personal ties with Mexicans, particularly the corrupt and criminal Mexican elite. Sailer makes some very large assertions here on the basis of what seems to me to be spotty evidence. Yet the article is intriguing, disturbing, and worth reading. Most chilling is this quote from Bush’s proudly racialist, half-Mexican nephew George P. Bush: “Our biggest challenge will be to separate my uncle from the rest of the Republican Party.” My gosh, isn’t that exactly what Bush has done with his legalize-the-illegals proposal? Sailer remarks:
This, then, could be why George W. has spent so much effort promoting a wedge issue that can only split his own party. He thinks the long-run fate of his dynasty demands a new, improved Republican Party—and a new, debased America.
