Enriching America by destroying it
(Be sure to see the further comments that have been added to this entry.)
By consulting the 2000 census, a Steve Sailer reader figured out how Mexican immigrants compare to U.S. natives and to other immigrants in terms of socio-economic indicators such as labor force participation, income, poverty, use of English in the home, high school diploma, and college education. The figures are staggering. Seventy percent of Mexican immigrants have no high school diploma, 96 percent have no college education, and only 5.6 percent speak English at home, compared to 22 percent of other immigrants who speak English at home. The Mexican immigrantsí poverty rate is 24.4 percent, compared to 11.4 percent for other foreign born, and their per capita income is $13,000, half the per capita income of other foreign born groups which is $25,000.
Someone please ask Lawrence ďWhatís all the fuss about?Ē Kudlow how scores of millions of low IQ, low skilled, averse-to-education immigrants are going to become the main generators of the tax revenues that will fund social services over the next half century?
When I see figures like this, I become convinced that the stated reasons of the Kudlows and the Glendons and the Bushes and the Specters and the McCains for wanting open borders are not their real reason; their real reason is to destroy American racism, once and for allóby destroying white America.

Look, Iíve spent over 20 years thinking and obsessing about this, the greatest mystery in history. Why are whites letting their own destruction happen, and even eagerly urging it on? This is something radically irrational. It is demonic. Garden variety political explanations donít explain it. I donít know that my statement that you question is true (and Iíll admit that it could be a projection of my own concern about white survival); but I nevertheless feel on a deep level that something like it is true. I believe itís an unarticulated desire for non-existence. As Iíve been saying over and over in recent months, whites are condemned by their own most sacred beliefs, that all people should be equal, and that people shouldnít be better than other people, and that race is not supposed to matter. But yet thereís the white race, standing like a stone wall, dominating the world, by its very existence a reproof to the liberal belief in equality and powerlessness. So thereís the source of the white discomfort, the white guilt. Of course the elites donít exactly feel guilty, they think that other whites are guilty. But guilt is what itís about. Whites recognize that every new argument and trauma about immigration is just stirring up again the same dilemma of white existence. So at a certain point they start to feel (Iím not saying they articulate this to themselves) that they want to be done with that dilemma, they want non-existence. If the white majority is eliminated as a majority, then whites will no longer be there as an obstacle to the flow of humanity, and the dilemma is solved.(See further discussion of this topic here.)
I think James Burnham in Suicide of the West said in so many words that liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.
