FROM “IN DEFENSE OF RURAL AMERICA”

Even a man and a woman in a marriage have serious difficulties getting along with each other and many marriages end up in divorce due to irreconcilable differences. It occurs even with people of the same background, culture and religion. Who knows how difficult it is to get along in marriages of the same sex.
Unfortunately, that is the human condition in the year 2015 and all the way back to the time the Neanderthals couldn’t get along with the Cro-Magnons. It got so bad that the Neanderthals either went extinct or were exterminated.
The reality is, seven (7) billion people on planet earth come in all stripes, backgrounds, cultures and religions. They all tend to group together by their commonality in those backgrounds, cultures and religions. Each individual in any one group is motivated and acts accordingly to what is contained in his or her “Little Black Box” buried deep in their brain and psyche. And what is contained in their “Little Black Box” is determined by their culture, background and religion. All these different groups have been warring with each other for at least the last 6,000 years, in many cases over their differences in religion and culture.
So now let’s place four large groups of people with radically different religions, backgrounds and cultures in the same country (America), trying to interact with each other and get along in a democracy that allows the majority to rule. Let’s just say the four groups consist of Whites, Blacks, Latinos and Muslims.
The White race (62.6%), emanating from Europe and northern Asia has been around in a semi-civilized form for about 2 to 3,000 years, building large cities and engaging in world commerce and finance and held together by the tenets of the Protestant, Catholic and Jewish religions. We discussed the White Europeans and Americans in our recent article entitled “We Grow Tired and Angry With the Constant White Bashing.”
The Black race (13.2%), emanating mostly from Africa, has only existed in a civilized form for the last 150 to 200 years when they were forcibly taken in large numbers and deposited in alleged civilized countries as slaves. Prior to that they existed as natives, or aborigines, living off the land as hunter-gatherers, mostly as tribes. Their culture was dictated by their existence among the animals, jungles, forests, deserts and the weather. Their religions were usually pagan.
NOTE: We purposely do not use the term “African-American” in this article. It is a degrading term to Black Americans and goes to the issue of assimilation. If they are not Americans, then they are African, and much of Africa still lives in the dark ages. If they are African-Americans, then the rest of us would be American-Americans, and that is, of course, ridiculous.
The Latino race (17.1%) emanates from Central and South America as native tribes in lands that were conquered by Spanish and Portuguese Conquistadors in the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. Prior to the Spanish and Portuguese influence, they lived pretty-much a tribal existence, not unlike the Africans. Once again, prior to the introduction of Catholicism, their existence was similar to the African races, with the exception of the Mayans and Aztecs, who built up thriving pagan civilizations and engaged in regional agriculture and commerce but still existed as brutal dictatorships. These cultures eventually died out.
Central and South America today is broken up into countries where there is no middle class. Most of the people are ultra-poor, subjugated by brutal dictators or socialist regimes. The general, ingrained philosophy of the people as a whole is socialistic in nature, because if they want anything, they have to get it from government. Individual, unalienable rights, as a concept, was foreign to the inhabitants of those countries and still is today.
Middle Eastern Muslims, prior to and after the Prophet Mohammed and the rise of Islam, existed as mostly desert tribes, in many cases, warring with each other. Sadly, after 1,600 years, they are still warring with each other over who was supposed to be the successor to the Prophet Mohammed and have carried their wars and their religious differences well beyond the Middle East. But then Mohammed was a warring prophet as he attempted to force the rest of humanity to accept his version of monotheism in the name of Allah. It wasn’t the first time that the Muslims spread their religion by force across the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea and East into Pakistan, India and Indonesia in the late 8th and 9th Centuries. Even today, Muslims are spreading Islam by force or subterfuge in much of the world.
Now, let’s thrust this scrambled omelet of different cultures and religions into America and ask them to co-exist in peace. The ideal is that they will all assimilate into the American culture, speak English and follow in the tradition of our Founders, in a nation of laws under the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, just the opposite occurs, primarily because of human nature.
Because of their vast differences, these groups do not assimilate. What happens is the Whites enclave with the Whites. Different European groups of the White race enclave with their countrymen. The Blacks enclave with the Blacks and cry “Black Lives Matter” and “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” meanwhile shooting each other in the ghettos of large cities, having thousands of babies out of wedlock and asking for reparations for slavery (money) from the government. No, not all Blacks do this, but it is the general perception by millions of Americans because of the bright media light shined on their antics.
The Latinos enclave with the Latinos, have many babies and shout “Let ’em all in” and “We’re just claiming what was illegally taken from us by force by the Americans.”
The Muslims enclave with the Muslims and lobby for Sharia law in their communities. Estimates of the number of Muslims in America range from 2% to 7%, and the number grows virtually by the day as more Muslims immigrate to America from war-torn regions and local converts to the religion.
Unfortunately, with all these groups, never the twain shall meet, except in politics.
The Blacks (13.2%) and Latinos (17.1%) learned that they could enclave together with those Whites (Democrats) who will promise them the political clout to get what they want, mostly a government handout or a privilege, in keeping with their long-established heritage of socialism and despotism in the countries from which they came. 30.3% Black and Latinos, plus the Democrats, is a huge voting bloc if they vote as a bloc. And they do.
The Muslims are still too low in numbers to have any influence on politics, but the influence of radical Islam from the Middle East plagues their existence here in America. That radical Muslim influence within the American Muslim community has become a direct threat to national security.
From this multi-cultural mish-mash, the American government tries to run the country and make everyone happy at the expense of everyone’s pocketbook, not to mention the loss of individual freedom. Of course, very few are happy. The results are strife, conflict and angry division everywhere you turn and the country moving rapidly towards national bankruptcy because of government policies that try to buy off certain constituency groups for votes ….. with our money.
It is irrefutable that multi-culturalism on a large scale, seldom, if ever, works. Europe is finding out the hard way. Even German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron both declared multi-culturalism a failure. French President Nicolas Sarkozy followed suit.
Now these countries and most of Europe are faced with a massive refugee population being squeezed out of the Middle East and North Africa as they flee the ravages and savagery of war waged by radical Islam (ISIS) against their neighbors in the hope of establishing a world-dominating, Islamic Caliphate, and Syria’s Dictator Bashar Al-Assad waging war against his own people. It is a recipe for a national cultural disaster in Europe.
But there is another danger here that no one talks about as cultures begin to evolve into a totally different makeup from their origins. The seemingly unstoppable invasion of Latinos from Central and South America across our southern border, coupled with the expanding birth rates of the ethnic races, is changing the American racial percentages dramatically. Just from 2000 to 2010, ethnic minorities made up 91.7% of the nation’s population growth. 56% of that 91.7% came from the exploding birth rates of Latinos. Many of these babies are the offspring of illegal aliens and are born with the privilege of American citizenship because of a festering misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The fertility rates for Latinos is 2.4 live births per woman, while the rate for Blacks is 2.1. In contrast, the fertility rates for Whites and Asians is 1.8, well below the replacement rate for those two races and well below the fertility rates for Blacks and Latinos. (Source: Pew Research)
It is not difficult to extrapolate from these statistics that the White race, which started this country in freedom over 200 years ago, will be the minority race by 2050. We can hear a lot of cheering and hand-clapping in certain quarters.
But what this foretells is an America that will be governed by a mob democracy of mostly black and brown under-educated and poor races whose roots and heritage are deeply connected to tribal and socialist countries ruled by dictators and despots. America, simply by the birth rate, will become a third-world banana republic, if it hasn’t already. It brings a whole new meaning to “the poor shall inherit the earth.” But who will get to pay for these new heirs to world power?
Ladies and gentlemen, there isn’t one damn thing you can do about it, unless the White race bands together in solidarity against the votes of the ethnic races, or suddenly decides to have a whole bunch of White babies in the next 10 or 20 years, and we do mean a whole bunch of babies. This isn’t going to happen because better-educated, affluent people, (mostly Whites and Asians) don’t have as many babies as the poor, uneducated ethnic races. Population growth of any race is, by and large, driven by the degree of affluence and education.
Educated people might co-exist peacefully because they mostly, but not in all cases, use intellect and logic. But then there are always those educated idiots who take jobs in government and academia. However, uneducated people are motivated by myths, legends, liturgy and unbridled emotion, and unbridled emotion is the quickest way to war.
Hopefully, one day, the people of planet earth will be able to heal the multi-cultural and religious differences between them so that we can all live in peace. Unfortunately, it may take several centuries before we reach that goal, or maybe even a millennium, provided man doesn’t destroy himself first.
Apparently, in the 5,000 years of civilization, man hasn’t learned a great deal about living in peace. Sadly, it is the innocents who must pay the price. Either cultures and religions find a way to blend in some form of multi-cultural detente, or there will never be any peace.
To the question of whether a country of Whites, Blacks, Latinos and Muslims can survive, the answer is no, if we are talking about a country based on the principles of individual freedom as envisioned by the Founding Fathers. History has taught us that virtually every civilized country that lasts more than 200 years eventually degenerates into socialism ….. or communism. By and large, the people draw away from self-reliance and fierce independence into creature comforts and then into the hellhole of dependence on government and the enslavement it brings. Multi-culturalism just accelerates the process.
If you are one of those who hasn’t lost his or her self-reliance and fierce independence, you need to visit the National Association of Rural Landowners website where we foster, promote and advocate for those qualities that are at the foundation of individual freedom and unalienable, God-given, natural rights.
