Obama’s Progressive America: Politico Calls for Ethnic, Cultural Cleansing of Southern Whites

Politico Magazine, edited by former Washington Post reporter Susan Glasser, published an amazingly racist and culturally bigoted article by contributing editor Michael Lind last Friday entitled, How the South Skews America, We’d be less violent, more mobile and in general more normal if not for Dixie.

Politico bemoans conservative, religious white Southerners whom the magazine accuses of preventing the U.S. from being more like Britain, Canada and other liberal, English speaking democracies. The article concludes with the hope that the South will be ethnically and culturally cleansed by immigrants from other countries and liberals relocating from other parts of the U.S.

“The United States would be much less exceptional in general, and in particular more like other English-speaking democracies such as Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand were it not for the effects on U.S. politics and culture of the American South.

“I don’t mean this in a good way. A lot of the traits that make the United States exceptional these days are undesirable, like higher violence and less social mobility. Many of these differences can be attributed largely to the South.”

…”Minus the South, the rest of the U.S. probably would be more like Canada or Australia or Britain or New Zealand—more secular, more socially liberal, more moderate in the tone of its politics and somewhat more generous in social policy. And it would not be as centralized as France or as social democratic as Sweden.”

Politico goes on to twist statistics to fit its bigoted screed:

…”The American South, with the lowest rates of intergenerational social mobility in the U.S., clearly skews the national statistics, creating an embarrassing and depressing version of American exceptionalism.

“Economic inequality? Apart from California and New York, where statistics reflect the wealth of Wall Street, Hollywood and Silicon Valley, the South is the region with the greatest income inequality. Southern exceptionalism has helped to ensure that the American Dream is more likely to be realized in the Old World than in the New.”

Politico builds its case for anti-Southern white bigotry through similar sophistry throughout the article.

“Jesusland” as the article calls the South keeps the U.S. down by its faith in God, according to Politico.

“Religiosity is one example of American exceptionalism among English-speaking countries that is largely the result of Southern exceptionalism within the United States. “We don’t do God,” Tony Blair’s aide Alastair Campbell famously remarked, emphasizing that religion is kept out of the public sphere in modern-day Britain. In most modern English-speaking countries, voters find ostentatious piety on the part of political candidates troubling, not reassuring. But in the U.S., born-again Southern evangelical politicians like Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush who troll for votes with piety have given U.S. presidential politics a flavor more reminiscent of Tehran than of London or Ottawa or Canberra. According to Gallup, in 2014 the most religious Americans were all found in Southern states, with the exceptions of Mormon Utah and semi-Southern Oklahoma. Mississippi led the nation in zeal.”

Politico distorts racial statistics to paint Southern whites as more prone to violence than anyone in the country.

“Southern violence also goes a long way toward explaining the exceptional violence of the United States in general compared to otherwise similar countries. The pre-modern “culture of honor” continues to exist to a greater degree in the South. White Southerners are more likely than white northerners to respond to insults with increased testosterone and aggression, according to social scientists. According to the FBI in 2012, the South as a region, containing only a quarter of the population, accounted for 40.9 percent of U.S. violent crime.”

Southern whites are also attacked as being racist for not voting for Barack Obama and being Republican.

“The racial polarization of the American electorate is exacerbated by the white Southern electorate. In 2012, Barack Obama, the first African-American president, won only 39 percent of the white vote. But low numbers among white voters in the South dragged down his nationwide total. Obama did better than his national average with white voters in the Midwest and won outright with 51 percent in Iowa.

“Voting is far more polarized along racial lines in the Southern states than elsewhere. According to a recent study by political scientists Avidit Acharya, Matthew Blackwell and Maya Sen, “the larger the number of slaves in his or her county of residence in 1860, the greater the probability that a white Southerners today will identify as a Republican, express opposition to race-coded policies such as affirmative action and express greater racial resentment towards African Americans.”

The article ends on an upbeat note for liberals. Politico expresses the hope that ethnic and cultural cleansing will take place in the South.

“The northern progressives who joke about the U.S. jettisoning “Jesusland” and merging with Canada will not get their wish. But there is hope: A combination of demographic change and generational change is weakening the ability of the old-fashioned South to skew American politics and culture in the future. Peripheral Southern states like Florida and Virginia are increasingly competitive, and the Deep South may join them in time. In Texas once-reactionary cities like Houston and Dallas are competing with Austin as tolerant meccas for transplants who prefer the Sun Belt to the Old South. Immigration into the South from other countries and American regions is breaking down local oligarchies and old folkways.

“The decline in Southern exceptionalism in time may lead to more of a convergence among the U.S. and other modern democracies. Let us hope so. We have had enough of the wrong kind of American exceptionalism.”

This is an appallingly bigoted article, especially for a 21st Century D.C. political institution like Politico. On the issue of race alone, Politico ignores the many minority Republicans and Democrats elected to public office across the South.

Politico has published an article that is politically and intellectually dishonest.

But this is the state of politics in Barack Obama’s ‘progressive’ America.

    I hate to say this and never wanted this but is it time for a war. Now, what is going on, here. And why is it okay for the leaders in Washington living in these states to comply with this. Now, for Haley, she decided the Confederate Flag needed to go. Is she too, behind the cleansing.

    I do believe this is a step too far and the South will die before this happens. They aren’t the people you want to mess with.

    In keeping with similar rhetoric, how less violent would the US be if we deported Africans, hispanics, and muslims?

    I’m guessing this is one of those questions too scary to ask.

    Dear Susan,

    Thanks for the great article – if it’s not too much trouble, could you write a few more articles like this one? We are getting flooded out with Yankees down here and we can’t seem to be able to stop the inflow. Anything you can do would be much appreciated!

    What do you think is going on in your neck of the woods that is making everyone want to evacuate?

    Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide,

    According to Politico itself, Michael Lind (the guy [?] who wrote this article) is policy director of New America’s Economic Growth Program (there’s an interesting org for you). He is a co-founder of the New America Foundation (holy-moly, another one!), has authored some anti-conservative (and racially opinionated) books, is a contributing writer from the same predictable rad-red rags on the East Coast where high-praise book reviews were traded for his brand of slanderous journalism.

    There really is nothing new to see here. The only disturbing piece of info on his resume is a prize-winning children’s book (again, incestuous and inbred acknowledgements and awards are noted and exchanged with reviewers).

    It’s a tough fight, isn’t it?

    But fight, we must (or “much”, if you take the same drugs as Al Sharpton).

  • Mad Hatter

    If you take this article, replace White Southerners and replace it with Black Inner City, the radical left wing in this country would be calling the writer a bigot, racists, and demand they be fired. Since the article is an all out assault on Whites, and the South, the Alinsky Media is giving this article a standing ovation.

    As I’ve said before in a different article, the radical left wing has a seething hatred for Whites, especially Southern Whites.

    The White haters have come out of the closet since they have one of their own in the White House.

  • M. Black

    That article is a total reflection on her upbringing. Feel sorry for her, but thankful she takes Southern people’s kindness for weakness.

    They’ve been closeted White Haters, so make no mistake about it, they’re closeted Commies.

  • If the progressive ANTI Constitutional American Exceptionalism moonbats start something, I’ll be leaving Missouri and heading South.

    We all know it aint about the Confederate flag. ‘They’ need to remove our rebel spirit, ‘they’ need submission. Seems there are many ignorant americans (purposely lower case, they don’t deserve to be called an American) who are eagerly choosing slavery. America used to be a nation of rebels (just ask the Brits), we have always stood up for freedom and against ‘the man’, we were proud and independent. Now? Now this nation is full of “gimmi gimmi” takers who want to be coddled and cared for… a collective society of yellow belly, good for nothing, socialist, European wannabees. PUKE. Back when our children were taught history, they knew we were REBELS and were proud of that history and the spirit of American exceptionalism…

    Quote:
    ————————-
    exceptional

    [ik-sep-shuh-nl]

    adjective

    1.
    forming an exception or rare instance; unusual; extraordinary:
    The warm weather was exceptional for January.

    2.
    unusually excellent; superior:
    an exceptional violinist.

    3.
    Education.
    being intellectually gifted.
    being physically or especially mentally disabled to an extent that special schooling is required.
    ——————————-

    Now, I can’t imagine a leftist, culturally diverse, politically correct person would use a slur that references a mentally or physically disables person (the equivalent of the verboten word “retarded”).
    And all the rest of the definitions of that word are positive aspects.

    Keep America Exceptional. Keep The South The Way It Is.

    Make America More Exceptional. Make The North Adopt Southern Culture.

    New Docs Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Colluding To Prosecute Obama Opponents

    “These new documents show that the Obama IRS scandal is also an Obama
    DOJ and FBI scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The
    FBI and Justice Department worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS to
    concoct some reason to put President Obama’s opponents in jail before
    his reelection. And this abuse resulted in the FBI’s illegally obtaining
    confidential taxpayer information. How can the Justice Department and
    FBI investigate the very scandal in which they are implicated?”

    In January of 2014, Senator Ted Cruz sent a letter to Attorney
    General Eric Holder asking for the Justice Department to appoint a
    special prosecutor to look into actions by the tax collecting agency.

    Ditto from Atlanta, GA. As a former Chamber of Commerce communications staffer, I’d love for this woman to come on down and learn a little about the South, because she’s one ignorant and lazy writer. The south has created more jobs and has the lead in almost every instance of economic measure. After years of rust belt failures, we’re made up of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of transplanted northerners (I myself am from Nebraska. My ancestors all fought for the north, but I consider myself a southerner BY THE GRACE OF GOD). Atlanta, a city of just 400,000 in the early ’70s, is now a metropolis of five and a half MILLION people. Not counting the thousands of illegal aliens, I’ll betcha almost half of them fled the north for jobs, conservative governments, successful economies and, gasp, an incredibly great lifestyle that is NOTHING like the one you describe. With two daughters who attended college, one in Mississippi, one in Alabama, we have the SEC covered, and our colleges still provide REAL educations, not some bullsquat class on how to do things to your lesbian lover. Keep on writing Sugar. You’re a northern idiot who probably can’t drive, has never sipped a cocktail at a winning football game, would faint at the size of our bugs and….that’s right….believes we’re still sitting down here on the plantations, when we beat the north at just about everything. Oh, and our democrats were the KKK, you have things confused dear. Bless your cold little northern heart. Sincerely, A Georgia Bulldog

    What is it, clickbait day at Politico?

    This screed can be summed up thus:

    Dixie is evil because of black pathology (which we’ll pawn off on whites), Christianity, and white people not voting Obama. So the solution is immigration and border surges.

    I was also thinking, if a few more battles in a certain conflagration 150 years ago would have turned out differently, the rest of the United States of America wouldn’t have a Dixie problem.

  • Leah Keever

  • mumzieistired

    The folks at Politico think the US would be better off without the South.

    An interesting idea.

    Suppose the North were to kick the South out of the Union. Would it really be so bad?

    The North keeps the current US government. The North keeps the current US debt. The North keeps the current US cronyism. The North keeps the Northeastern Liberals. (Southeastern Liberals could head north to be with their pals, and freedom-loving people in the North could head south.)

    The South gets a “do-over”. We use the US Constitution, minus amendments 16 and 17, and plus at least some of Mr. Levin’s liberty amendments. So, the new government we form exists – with our consent – to preserve our rights, not to control our every move or purchase. We already have lots of manufacturing and agriculture. We have plenty of deep ports for trade. We have lots of outdoor fun and great beaches. We have the best iced tea. The best whiskey. And grits. Garlic-y, cheesy grits.

    But best of all, we have nice people. Some of the nicest people on the planet.

    All in all, it might not be bad to get booted out.

    A huge downside, though, would be that the South would become crowded, because – despite the whooping outrage from Politico – most people in this country just want to live their lives, raise their kids, do their jobs, love their neighbors, worship their God (or not), and generally pursue happiness, unmolested by government and bitter, ill-tempered whiners.

    So it wouldn’t work, because the South would be too crowded.

    But it’s interesting to ponder…

    While doing research on liberal democrats Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening the ability of Earth to sustain life, a sobering new study reports.

    The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them.

    “These humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information,” Davis Logsdon, one of the scientists who contributed to the study, said. “And yet, somehow, they have developed defenses that, for all intents and purposes, have rendered those faculties totally inactive.”

    More worryingly, Logsdon said, “As facts have multiplied, their defenses against those facts have only grown more powerful.”

    While scientists have no clear understanding of the mechanisms that prevent the fact-resistant humans from absorbing data, they theorize that the strain may have developed the ability to intercept and discard information en route from the auditory nerve to the brain. “The normal functions of human consciousness have been completely nullified,” Logsdon said.

    While reaffirming the gloomy assessments of the study, Logsdon held out hope that the threat of fact-resistant humans could be mitigated in the future. “Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen,” he said.

    We have to remember that Progressives are Marxists– we have only to look at the changes in America over the last 50 years to see how the Progressives in both parties have given more and more power to the Federal government. The greatest changes towards totalitarianism (which is what the Left is demanding in this article) has definitely been under Obama. We have Obamacare; the EPA enacting regulations that are basically the cap and trade bill the Democrats could not pass when they held both houses of Congress; the FCC has taken over the internet; FEC has held hearings to determine whether it “should” monitor political content of blogs on the internet 30-60 days prior to an election; Obama’s Executive Action to grant amnesty to over 5 million people in our country illegally, etc.

    We the People must become activists if we are to save our country from the Left’s attempt to change the entire country into its desired image. The Left thinks the country must be changed and the South must be changed. What We the People want is not important to the Left. They think they are more intelligent and more caring. If we allow them to win, they will rule the USA like Hitler ruled Germany and Stalin ruled Russia.

    One minor problem. The south was almost all Democrat before and after the Civil War, right up to the 1960’s. With the advent of the Great Society, people in the South saw how poorly they were being treated by Democrats, and switched parties. After the Civil War, many blacks moved north for jobs. The trend has reversed in the past two decades. Why? More job opportunity in the South. But it’s not the people moving in that are changing the political landscape as Politico suggests. In places like Va., it’s all the govt. employees who want and need a bigger govt. Remember in the last election when Wendy Davis was supposed to be the David to bring down the Republican Goliath? She lost by over 20 points. This idea of converting the south to Democrats and their socialist programs isn’t fairing well at all. People see what is happening in socialist strongholds like Illinois and California, and they want no part of that.
    The article is high on wishes and bereft on facts.

    boy killed by a bullet intended for his gang-banger father on the
    streets of President Obama’s Chicago in yet another bloody Windy City
    weekend. As the Chicago Tribune reported,
    over the Fourth of July weekend, Amari Brown was one of the ten that
    were killed among 55 that were shot, none attributed to Confederate flag
    loyalists:

    Among
    those killed was 7-year-old Amari Brown, shot in the chest as he
    watched fireworks near his father’s home in Humboldt Park late Saturday
    night. Police say they believe the attack was aimed at the father, whom
    they described as a ranking gang member.

    Also
    gunned down was 17-year-old Vonzell Banks, who was shot as he played
    basketball Friday at a park named for Hadiya Pendleton, a high school
    student fatally shot in 2013 near President Barack Obama’s Chicago home.

    5 Ways to Fight the Left and Make Your Life Better

    Lately I’ve been looking at Organic Opposition instead of Organizational
    Opposition. The latter is still important, but people are rightly
    disappointed and angry with everything from the GOP to assorted national
    groups and bewildered by a wide array of candidates.

    Organic Opposition doesn’t require organizations or a movement. It’s about living in ways that naturally oppose the left.

    Most of the people here already live in ways that the left resents
    without even thinking about it. Organic Opposition is about finding new
    ways to oppose the power of the left in your life.

    This is not a complete checklist. It’s a set of general ideas and people are welcome to add to them in the comments.

    Because blacks in the South have very deep family relationships and don’t desire “mobility”. Most are very Conservative Christians.

    Another more subtle reason is living up North, they develop autoimmune diseases like lupus and have premature babies from inadequate sun exposure necessary to produce vitamin D. Melanin in the skin means little uV light is absorbed.

  • ArtStoneUS

    Don’t confuse the Drudge folks with facts. I see nothing in the quotes that remotely is advocating genocide or ethnic cleansing. The Politico author is advocating turning the Deep South into a “melting pot”. The author is just blissfully ignorant of the actual Demographics of the South. Black and white people work side by side. Having a Harvard lawyer from Seattle move into Birmingham AL and divert the city’s limited resources into building bike paths and streetcar systems will not improve the poverty related problems in the South.

  • CatoYounger

    Thanks to Kristin for exposing Michael Lind’s deviousness. Lind employs a standard liberal trope – talk down red states, many of whom are a third black, by comparing them to lily-white Northern states, but then blame the disparity on the white population. Its dishonest and racist. The truth is Southern crime statistics are heavily skewed by two factors 1) black population. The black population in the US is 13%, but its up to a third in many Southern states, meaning its much less than 13% in many other states, mostly Northern. Unfortunately, blacks commit crime at rates significantly higher than whites. For example, blacks account for half of all murders. This heavily skews Southern crime statistics. 2) Illegal immigrants make up 3.5% of the US population, but accounted for 37% of all federal convictions! I think we all know the vast majority of illegals are in the Southern states closest to the Mexican border. So, this also heavily skews Southern crime statistics. Both groups are largely Democrat constituents.
    I do appreciate Mr. Land’s candor in admitting liberals are trying to eliminate Southern white Christians, specifically through immigration. We know this, but have to listen to liberals lie about it all the time.

  • CatoYounger

    That can actually be answered statistically. Here are some of my guesstimates. You can do the math yourself, but these will be in the ballpark. Fortunately, there ares so few Muslims I can’t guess for them, but without blacks and illegals, the number of murders in the US would drop around 60%, even as the population only fell 17%. Even with the loss of people, our GDP would hardly budge – we’d have almost the same economic growth and output. We could cut our welfare state back 50%, while still providing the same level of services, saving around $500 billion annually between the Feds and the states. This would balance the federal budget all by itself. And so on…

  • CatoYounger

    No one wants to toss you, we’re glad you’re here. Its the illegals that need to go.

  • CatoYounger

    They would never let us go for three reasons: 1) We work and produce. Much of Northern wealth even today is “paper wealth” – banks, Wall Street, etc. 2) We provide a disproportionate number of people for the military and first responder groups. They don’t want to dirty their hands. 3) And this is the main one, they won’t let us go because they WANT to lord it over us and control us.

  • CatoYounger

    I always laugh when I hear about that study that Southerners are more likely to respond to insults with aggression. In other words, liberals are wusses and they are trying to flip the script to make themselves look better and us worse.

  • CatoYounger

    I don’t know why, but there is a tradition of self-loathing among Jews, and now it has spread to liberals as a whole.

  • jim marcum

    I’ve traveled the east coast from Canada to Florida. Stayed for days or weeks at a time in northern cities as well as southern. The differences are bold and clear. While staying in the Northern cities you generally make sure you have everything you need you don’t want to venture back out after dark. I was staying at an airport hotel in Detroit I had a rental car. I was going out to get a few things one evening and walked by the Hotel Desk. The clerk said, ‘sir may I ask where you are going’. I told him I needed to get a few things. He said, ‘I would advise you not to go out but if you must I will have someone walk you to your car”. I realize the dangers of traveling in northern states but have never been afraid to walk to my car. The clerk told me there was a murder a minute going on out there and he would rather me take all precautions. In the south, for the most part, I walk all hours of the night. Now there are places in the south I would not do that. Downtown Atlanta, New Orleans, or Birmingham or Charlotte in certain areas. But the rural areas are seemingly very safe. I do also notice when traveling into the business districts and the inner cities of the Northern states there are drug addicts, alcoholics, and prostitutes on every corner even in the morning and all day long. I have seen a dozen or so passed out on park benches, lying on the streets etc. The prostitutes will run up to your car at red lights. That’s the North, the progressives, they call themselves. In DC recently, our nations capitol, a female friend of mine and her daughter went on a tourist DC at night lights tour. Driving back to the hotel she got turned around and lost. She told me she drove through neighborhoods, after midnight, and children were still out playing in the streets. She said it was hell holes filth but there were Mercedes Benz’s and BMW’s parked all over the place. She saw a McDonalds and she said she was so relieved to see a police officer inside. She parked and walked to the door and one of the employee’s walked over and unlocked the door to let her in. She said the cop acted a little mad and asked her what she was doing there after midnight. she explained she was lost and where she needed to get to. He told her, “get in your car and drive. If someone bumps into your rear bumper go on don’t get out of the car, drive out of here you don’t know where you are this is a bad place”. So friends you decide. Where would you rather live. Oh I’m sure New York with it’s restaurants and all is great if you have a Limo and driver carrying a pistol and you don’t have to worry about walking amongst the street people. I’ll take the south myself. with it’s small towns and friendly people. the people you see at night are out walking enjoying the beautiful weather or setting on their porches and eager to talk to a stranger walking past. The south in America is the only place to live. A job relocation firm told me that the Carolina’s was the number one requested relocation area in the country. The Carolina’s where they just saw fit to take down a piece of cloth like it did something evil. That’s my true take on it and my advice to you.

    First, the term latino is a made up PC label based off La Raza type BS that is steeped in the Plan of San Diego and later master plan of colonization and conquest called Plan of Aztlan. You are a Hispanic. Before Obama began altering US LAW by choosing how he will implement or ignore them, before the bun rush of our purposefully opened Southern Border; Citizens, legal immigrants and workers in this Nation with Iberian heritage called themselves Hispanic. Latino is not a race or ethnicity. It is just a PC label. If it weren’t so, then why are the Citizens in the non-Spanish based countries/regions not calling themselves latino like Portuguese Brazil, French Guyana, Cajun French of Louisiana or Americans of Italian heritage? By definition, they are “latino”. Please don’t use the myth that latino is a race of Hispanic/Amer-Indian. That lie has been well debunked. Mexico started that by forcing the Diversity of the mestizo. Most who claim to be mestizo are predominately Hispanic, Hispanic -Berber, or Hispanic-sub-Saharan African.

  • Sam Houston

    We DO want to toss anchor babies and chain migrants. Furthermore, When one says that they are a “Naturalized Citizen”, that does not automatically infer that the individual actually went thru the naturalization process. 17 years of age or younger automatically become Naturalized Citizens when one or both parents become naturalized. Look it up on the USCIS website. With these “latinos” coming here raising their children in a fashion contrary to assimilation, these children are no more naturalized than anchor babies. Do you know that knowledge of English is NOT a requirement for naturalization? Even the test does not require the ability to read English. The rules allow an interpreter to help you pass the test. That is cheating.

  • American_cavalier

    Let’s be fair. There has always been a large white hating element in the black community. But most of them are just trying to live there lives and could care less about this or that argument of Southern history. In fact many and formerly a majority embraced Southern white history Robert E Lee and it all.

    So you are right it is the left which is agitating them, putting grievance and more hate in their hearts and focusing it on whites and American and especially Southern symbolism. The fear and hate mongerors are the Left.

    But so it has always been going back to colonial days. The agitators are overwhelmingly white. Their troops were multicultural Just Like now. Whether the French-Indian, Spanish-Indian, Revolutionary, Mexican, and Indian wars it was always the same: Whites, blacks, Indians, against whites. Leadership white: soldiers mixed. In Reconstruction the vast majority of extra judicial killings by the Resistance wasn’t blacks but whites.

    Our future existence depends on victory. A victory best achieved by going after these white leftists in places like New York, Hollywood, San Francisco, Chicago. That is the center of gravity in the enemy axis. Not even the traitors inside the South like Nikki Haley. They are just prostitutes in the pay roll.

  • bobdog19006

    Well, apparently, with whichever ethnic group, gender, or species you identify with today, sam. Este es el estados unidos

    Kinda depends on what one feels like complaining about at the moment.

    Today, for example, I woke up kinda feeling like a black male Doberman.

  • Darkheart11

    The thing is, while you’re correct about the term “Latino” it is easier to recognize. There have been times I had to explain “Hispanic” to some of the natives here.

    Besides it beats the usual crap I would get from the hater left when I disagree with them and you get tired of “wetback”, “spic”, “greaser” and their favorite “brown hi@@er”.

    Would you believe I have had to explain what it means to “have come from Central America”? Yes, I HAVE run into a San Francisco liberal THAT stupid!

    Thank you for the correct appellation, I am impressed.

  • Winston

    At what point does our military begin to defend the Constitution, as they all swore to do when they raised their right hand during enlistment? This is getting ridiculous.

  • Yes, that is why the most violent cities are in the south…oops….never mind.

  • Sam Houston

    Darkheart11 – Sorry to paint with such a broad brush but we really have no choice thanks to the corrupt Federal Government, complicit Media, and Raza paid spokespersons. Till American Citizens who are Hispanic come forward to denounce La Raza and their illegal alien invasion force, you get lumped together. We can no longer afford the niceties of decorum.

  • Darkheart11

    I have been and will continue to denounce that trash who claims to speak for me and who do NOT! But with the media screaming their lies single voices tend to get lost in the malstrom.

    What would socialism look like in the United States? Sean Blackmon, member of Party For Socialism And Liberation, is here to liberate your mind from the capitalist, white privileged way of thinking! (VIDEO BELOW!)

    “The very concept of socialism is so misunderstood and maligned in the American conscious, mostly due to the distortions of the buguious media” he says, “We are scientific socialists. Which means that our analysis is based in material conditions, the way things actually are, not fantasies…. Capitalism as we know it has taken about 500 years to develop, so getting rid of the ravages of it won’t be an overnight process”

    He goes on to fantasize about what an American socialism would look like. “Under a socialist government, every person would have unrestricted access to food, clothes, shelter, health care, quality education, and gainful employment. Jobs would be a right, with a 30 hour work week, with benefits provided by the government, including free childcare. Poverty would be eliminated by providing a living wage for all… No one would pay more than 10% of their income on housing.”

    “The destruction of white supremacy will be a priority of the new socialist government, with reparations being paid to black Americans for the centuries of unpaid labor and super exploitation under enslavement, Jim Crow, mass incarceration, and other forms of institutionalized disenfranchisement. All government treaties with Native Americans will be honored and restitutions will be made for the land and resources stolen by the deposed capitalist class.”

    Revolution is Americas only hope for survival. Hunt liberals for sport!

  • Americadies

    Visit Liberia you will see the future of America.

  • Sam Houston

    You have allies in your struggle. White, Black, Native, Asian Citizens who are against illegal aliens being afforded a reprieve from the Law that is never enforced in its entirety . We all have to combine together, as Citizens, to dull out the drone of the La Raza types, Liberals and Progressives that seek to irrevocably alter the landscape of America to favor their agenda and their agendas only.

    I was born and raised in Texas. I had many good friends that were Texans who were Hispanic. My Best Friend in Elementary was Hispanic. The word latino was never uttered from them or their Families. To call them Mexican was an insult like n-word to out friends who were Black. They were proud to be Texans and that is how they identified themselves. Some even had Ancestors that fought for the Independence of Texas from Mexico.

    So Darkheart11, to find your voice, to force it to be heard, you will need to join with the rest of us that are having our voices squashed as well. We have to have legal immigrants and naturalized Citizens to stand up against the insane open borders policy of Obama, the DC Gang, Liberals, RINOs, Raza, Chamber of Commerce. The more that your voices are heard, the more blunted the vengeful sword of the Left becomes. I would be honored to join hands with you and march forward against this intolerant bigotry towards American’s Rights and America’s Sovereignty.

    Americans First! Americans Now!

  • Sam Houston

    The Left believes in making labels and changing terms to hide in plain sight, their intolerant and bigoted social agendas. I would suggest that you disuse latino and identify yourself by your historical heritage. Don’t know how long you have been in the USA before you Naturalized, but there was a time in the late 70’s to early 90’s that we did not label ourselves. We saw people, not colors. The Left altered a well working “Judge not by the Cover” for Diversity which segregates by differences. They purposefully began to drive a wedge between Americans based on race and other factors like wealth and geographic location. All of this has been by design of the Left’s overall agenda to breakdown traditional America in order to install a purely socialist society. Most Hispanics that I know tend to hold Conservative values. Altering Hispanic to latino creates a new ethnic class of people for the Left to exploit. The side-effect is the erosion of Conservative Hispanics. This same tactic was employed against Black Americans when they hyphenated them African-American.

    Well stated. People of all race, creeds, religions, and class have to wake up and pull back the blinders to see the world that they trust is an illusion. Not to get all Hollyweird but all of this makes a stark resemblance to ‘The Matrix’. Art mirrors reality.

    I agree, Sam Houston, we are already seeing no-go zones in Dearborn MI. there are probably others They are already demanding Sharia in many areas. They are infiltrating the schools and demanding special “religious” privileges when schools have kicked Christianity to the curb. We are in Stage two of Jihad and people are still bowing to the muslim murderers. Articles like Politico is only reinforcing the DIS-information to the populous and spreading more lies. All part of the obama plan.

  • Lorena Ashcroft

    Darkheart11, Thank you for your service to America and coming here the RIGHT way. That is why amnesty is so unfair to you and others who did their due diligence and worked hard. Anything I write about is the illegal aliens, not just Hispanic, but the middle eastern, sub-sahara ones who sneak like thieves into our (yours and mine) country and are used by the democrats, they hop,e as voters for their socialist agenda.

  • Darkheart11

    First thank you, the only thanks I seem to be getting are the ones from Breitbart readers.

    And you are correct this is OUR, yours and mine, country and I get protective about it.

    The infestation of illegals from all around the world is a major danger to America even if no one wants to admit it. We need to stop their entry and start getting the ones here out. The issue of broken families is not a serious one, it is mere distraction and the basis for false name calling. There are many illegals here and they can be gotten out the same way they come in. One by one and over a period of years.

  • Darkheart11

    I agree with you on just about all the points you made. Rather is nothing I can add save this, when I see these hyphenated designations it instantly tells me that person’s loyalties are only with what happens before the hyphen, never after.

    I was 16 years old when I decided to become a citizen, there was a daft on then and I was not going to fight for a country if I did not have a vested interest in it. Two years later, I was drafted for my first time in combat.

    No regrets. Well, none as would do me any good now.

  • Darkheart11

    I echo your loyalties.

    One tries but living as I do, by contract, in the belly of the socialist beast here in californiastan it gets kind of hard to find fellow loyalists. Not the I will change my views but it would make it easier to state them. Besides I like the idea of confronting a lynch mob with another large party.

  • Sam Houston

    I hear you loud and clear. There are more like minds out there in California. Just not in the big cities. Remember, California used to be a Republican State that gave us Reagan. Keep the Faith and the spirit. We Will Win This Battle!

  • Sam Houston

    Precisely. Very wise. So you are a fellow Vet. Thanks for your Service. What Branch? I was a Navy C-130 Loadmaster and Airframes Mech. Sort of a conundrum. I like to beat on planes with hammers then fly in them! Never got to Serve in Combat. We were the Logistical Support Wing for the Navy but our Herc’s only had a crowbar for protection and steel chains to toss out the back if we had a mind to. I got 12 years in, going up for my first Chief’s exam when I had my accident that ended it for me and got kicked to the curb. The boot came at the end of 2012 for me. Like you, no regrets.

  • Darkheart11

    Navy and Loadmaster eh?

    My duty was nothing so glamorous.

    Army, Infantry, 22 years. I was one of the guys who went were I was ordered to go and did what I was ordered to do. Usually something simple like, take the objective, hold the objective.

    Served the greatest nation on Earth in peace and war, Active and Reserve. Three MOS’s and all Infantry, weapons. Which helped when I was a Senior Weapons Instructor at a few posts and a few other places. Stayed until my last contract was up and left, got too old to do it anymore.

  • Darkheart11

    Keeping the Faith Brother, helps to know I am not the only one.

    So long as one of us keep to our Founding Principles the United States lives.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    Even for a newcomer like me.

  • Sam Houston

    Heads are about to roll on this. Can’t believe that Americans have been taking the shaft lying down.

  • Sam Houston

    Good on you. Infantry is never anything to scoff at. You were the meat and potatoes of the Army. Without y’all, those General Aide de Camps would have nothing to do. 🙂 Texas Legend Audie Murphy was a Dogface and he kicked from major Arse! My Father Enlisted in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He tried the early Enlistment but his Dad would not sign the release. So by the time he could Enlist on his own, the War was winding down. 6 weeks out of Boot, he pulled Duty as a Drill Instructor. They gave him a Sergeant Chevron (Temp) so that he could. January 1946, he was sent to Tokyo, Japan to Serve in the Occupation Forces. He was an MP with the 1137th MPCO Stationed in the HQ of General Whitehead’s Far East Air Forces Command. Just two building down from General MacArthur’s and across the boulevard from the Imperial Palace. In 2003, I pulled 3 months Duty at NAF Atsugi just outside of Tokyo. With the help of a Japanese Friend, I was able to find exactly where he Served from all of his pictures. I should him pictures of how much it really hasn’t changed.

    I was an Airdale in the Navy meaning I never Served aboard Ship. My Sea Duty was fulfilled because the Fleet Logistic Support Wing in Fort Worth, Texas supplies all the air logistical needs of the Navy outside of direct Ship replenishment by COD or Helo. Working on the aircraft was great but I loved to fly so that is what I did the most. I hauled some Army Infantry types once. The Weapons Sergeant let us check out the weapons. I went 8 or 9 years in the Navy without ever touching a weapon or receiving any training on one! My Wing was on the Reserve side of the Navy. I started out as a Reservist so I got the compressed course at Boot where weapons could not be fit in. I went Active (still on the Reserve side) 3 years later as I burned up all my Drills (IDT, AT, ADT) and then some every year. I am a Plank Owner on the C-40A Clipper which was awesome experience.

    There is good and bad in ALL THINGS…including race. There are good black folks and there are good liberals who have faith in God, too. The same applies to Southern folk. They have their good and bad, as well. In studying Genealogy, many times the whitest of white folk find out they have more black genes in their DNA and black folk find out the same..they have more white blood than ever imagined. Needless to say, folks are “blown away” by such findings. Live and learn.

  • perdue1111

    Black folk also need to realize that there are black “race-baiters” like Oprah Winfrey, Al Sharpton and even the Obama’s who place themselves above their own people,(keeping in mind Barack is mixed), referred as “elitist” who are double-talkers rooting for the black community yet their REAL AGENDA will be to back stab and persecute as well. I cringe every time I see Michele Obama as guest speaker, at the black colleges speaking to graduates where she has her own agenda making sure she has input that “racial black seed stigma” in the heads of all those students THAT HAVE SUCCEEDED in their achievement and she has to bring them down with her negative, racial dribble. SHAMEFUL….yes, just look at how she “suffers” everyday! Hypocrite!

  • perdue1111

    Check out Donald Trump, a presidential candidate, who just told the media as they were filming him that the MAJORITY of them are “bad people” with a known agenda to participate in the undermining of America. The liberals are terrified by him, which is a “hoot” and, of course bashing him but two days ago, in the polls, he was leading. He has his own style but he is the one that is capturing a lot of support by speaking out with TRUTH (something we haven’t had in a very long time), and has a lot of courage as he stands up for this country. It is quite historical, however, time will only tell! Team him up with someone of faith might be quite interesting. I liked his honesty when asked about his faith, he said he goes to church on holidays like Easter and Christmas. Lol! Check him out…see what YOU think.Supports our Veterans, against Common Core, Obamacare, wants to build a wall at Mexican border and HAVE THEM PAY FOR IT, supports those immigrants who come in LEGALLY, discusses how we are being ripped off by other nations because of lousy trade agreements….like FORD who was to build a $2.5 billion factory in Tennessee which is now going to be built in Mexico instead. He has a solution for that, too! To much to add….have to research yourselves!

  • Darkheart11

    OK I THINK i got most of that. Well done Sir!

    What counts is we both served honorably in the greatest military of the greatest country on Earth and in many foreign Services we are envied.

    Finished my twenty in 1999 but since I worked in the DoD as a civilian until I retired from that. Every now and again I attend some Naval ceremonials, you Navy guys do it a lot better than the Army, and things. Recently I attended a symposium for the Naval War College as a civilian with lots of brass around but they treated me very well. During a break I was with the higher higher as they talked how great they are, well you know, you can’t let that go by without standing up for your service. So I said, “In MY Service we see the entire Department of Defense as being divided into two parts. The Army Infantry and our support.”

    They let this old field hand of a broke down E-7 get away with it. Mighty nice of them.

  • Darkheart11

    Neither can I.

    Honest, folks outside the U.S. can not believe this!

  • Sam Houston

    Now they have found out that the Liberal abortion quacks, through Planned Parenthood, are set up to actually harvest the organs and tissue of unborn children?!

  • Sam Houston

    “The Army Infantry and our support.” Great come back! My Shipmates and I would rib the Coasties, the Chair Force, and even the P-3 Orion guys (we had many in our Command) but we never considered them inferior or that we were better in any way. We all Serve together. OIF/OEF has left the Navy almost sidelined being land based wars. Something that we aren’t used to.

    I Salute you (not your Uniform) for your Service! You were before my time as I Enlisted in 2000 at the age of 32 and got the official boot as the calendar rolled to 2013. Yeah, I was a late bloomer. Wish I had not been a fool and Enlisted out of High School. I was a technically oriented fellow and wanted to fly. Every Recruiter said that I had to have college to be a pilot. I was a poor White kid with no opportunity. I was living in my car for 2 weeks at age 19, eating mustard and instant coffee packets. Built myself up from there.

  • Darkheart11

    Well done, that is the sort of story that is pure Americana. It takes knowing where you want to do and then putting in the hard work to earn what you get. Just the chance for that is enough to motivate deserving people to come here and try for it. Or as in my case give our kids the chance to earn our way.

    Sometimes it was harder than others, some times things were not fair. No one ever promised me that and all I ever asked for was a fighting chance. Well that is what I got and all I ever needed, if I failed to win the big prize, no complaints, I tried and did not quite make it. No ones fault just works out that way and I still earned just about everything thing I ever wanted.

    Most of the men I know are the same, reminds me of a phrase one fo the guys used to use to describe us. Hwe would look a man in the eye and say, My Brother-from-another-mother”.

    Well met Brother.

  • Darkheart11

    Since the planned infanticide people have no problem ‘harvesting’ the body parts of murdered babies they should fully understand and accept it when the rest of us start to ‘harvest’ THEIR body parts!

  • Sam Houston

    I Served with many Legal immigrants in the Navy. Went to boot with a Mexican, Austrian, and a German. I have Served with a Honduran, Egyptian, British, South African (White), Ghanaian, Cameroonian, Japanese, Guatemalan, Nicaraguan, Filipino, Guamanian, Thai, and a few others that I can’t remember. They all Served Honorably and rightfully earned their US Citizenship. They were also very proud to be an American Citizen.

    Reaching that big prize, like you said, is no show stopper. Everyone should have dreams, goals, plans, and opportunity but I believe that Lucifer causes us to put so much energy, so much emphasis on reaching that goal that we forget to just live. Life can be rewarding itself. I have had so much opportunity to make it big but I chose not to get absorbed in the quest. That is my personal preference. I have found life to be much better that way. I grew up in a large suburb of Dallas. I was the original MTV generation and was in the place for the birth of the Internet, the PC and the modern cell phone. I was awestruck by the promise of technology and the opportunities that lay forth. However, the deeper and deeper that I got into technology, the more bland life became. That was when I realized that technology and gadgets weren’t for me, that the money and time that I spent on it were wasted. I have found myself longing to leave the city life for the country, to farm as my ancestors did. Ah, the joys of being stuck between two worlds.

  • Darkheart11

    Been there, done that.

    My time in computers started in the 1970’s. after a while the magic wears off. After that each man picks a new path, one of mine was the study of various religions. One of my interests, among many others.

    How ever lately I have been wondering, has the current crop of immigrants, legal and otherwise, reduced the value of the U.S. citizenship to worthlessness? Are Americans today worth out valor?

    Still looking for answers. One can get down hearted from time to time.

  • Sam Houston

    Downhearted, yes; down and out, no. You made an astute observation. If you look at the historical evidence and subsequent changes to this Nation after each mass migration period, who is allowed to migrate to this Nation is critical. The Immigration Act of 1924 was to stem the tide of the last great European migration (25 million) from1890’s-1920’s. With so many coming from Europe, all that was wrong in Europe was beginning to develop in America like Liberalism, Communism, and Socialism. The rampant influx of illegal Mexicans in the 1950’s-1970’s killed American agriculture to the point that only corporate farms could survive and the subsequent of those farms moving to Mexico. The 21st Century has America being inundated with out of control legal immigration, illegal aliens, and abused refugee status. We can see how this has been fundamentally transforming not only the American Way of Life, culture, and morals but the very Government itself. We see illegal aliens as a protected class above the Law. We see moslems as a protected class above the Constitution of the United States. We see colonization, not assimilation. America is being divided up like the Roman Republic was after Julius Caesar was assassinated.

  • Darkheart11

    First, thank you and yes, down but not out. Not as long as there is one man to believe and stand up for his beliefs.

    Actually I was thinking of that period at the end of the Roman Empire and not the end of the Roman Republic. And in the period after WWII we had in California a program, the ‘braceros'(I never get the spelling right) that allowed Mexican farm workers enter the U.S. for months at a time and work on many farms then return to Mexico and their families. Great plan but when it was ended the workers felt they HAD to come here to stay and bring their families with them.

  • Sam Houston

    Yes, the failed Bracero Program. Thank Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo for that. As American Citizens left rural America in droves to join the Fight or support the War Effort, the US War Production board contracted with Mexico to supply agricultural workers on a permit basis. After the War’s end, many Americans did not return to the farms, orchards, and ranches of rural America. Some where casualties of the War, took their GI Bill for college, found gainful employment in America’s industries and construction. Many that put up the War Effort on the Homefront decided the big city life was for them. This left a continuing manpower shortage so the War Production Department decided to extend the Bracero Program by offering those workers legal residence status. It was initially not well received as many of the Mexicans returned home. The program continued on, with no oversight so it quickly became abused. Then others outside of the program began to cross over. Like all government programs, maybe good intent but always bad implementation.

  • Darkheart11

    It did go some good in that the money infusion into the poorer parts pf Mexico went right to the poor people who earned it. And helped them elevate their own neighborhoods back home. Mexico could have turned around from the bottom up had the program run a little longer and been properly administered.

  • Sam Houston

    All one has to do is look up the lineage of corruption that is the Mexican Government back to when Mexico was a province of Spain. Ripe with civil wars, revolutions, assassinations, coups and the odd Emperor or two or three or four. It seems like the peasants revolt and it goes back to the same old same old within 2 years. Did you know that Mexico was also negotiating with Germany in WWI and WWII? I believe Mexico’s official position was neutral so America had to keep a weary eye down South. The only unit that Mexico sent was a small squadron of men to the USA to learn to fly the P-47 I believe. Not much info was available last time I looked. I think they went overseas but not sure if they saw combat or which theater.

    You are correct about the war time benefits of the Bracero Program for everyone. NAFTA was supposed to provide the same type of benefit. I saw an investigative report that the Mexicans who work in the American company factories live in the same barrios and under the same deplorable conditions. They only difference is that they now work long days, 6 days a week and are always in fear of being fired. The rich get richer while the poor stay poor. The illegal aliens sending millions home each month now are bleeding the US economy dry. It especially hurts local economies that can’t buffer the loss. The rich get richer while the poor stay poor. Only this time, the process increases the number of poor.

  • Darkheart11

    In regards you last paragraph the rich get richer and the poor stay poor but now that has crept north of the border.

    Yes, Mexico has always been a huge question mark, to everyone. Even those of us who are further south and refer to Mexicans as “Northerners”.

    Not “Nortenos” just Northerners.

    Their positive contributions to the world’s culture has always been nebulous given its size.

  • Sam Houston

    Oh, you made me look up a word – nebulous. Thanks for furthering my edumacation. ha ha.
