Pruden notes that nonwhite immigration has transformed Britain—therefore, what?
Howard Sutherland writes:
Not a bad comment from Wesley Pruden on the British mess, on first read. He is even bold enough to say such things as:LA replies:
Pruden has always been a “conservative” without a spark of conservative—i.e., anti-liberal—energy or conviction, and this is typical of him.
Pruden is like other “responsible” conservative commentators — he is permitted to identify problems, within certain limits, but not prescribe solutions. Steyn and Limbaugh also do this. The end result is a lot of pointless complaining and the demoralization of readers who are given only problems, never solutions. You would think that an American commentator should not shrink from prescribing solutions for Britain, but of course, we have a lot of the same problems as Britain for a lot of the same reasons, and therefore for him to say “Britain should end immigration, it is a disaster” would only raise the question of why we shouldn’t end it here, too.
