FROM “IN DEFENSE OF RURAL AMERICA”

In January 2016, a meat-processing plant in Kansas was forced to fire almost 200 Muslims over prayer issues. The Muslims wanted five breaks a day to pray. That request, or demand, was incompatible with the plant’s production schedule. Now the Muslims have no job and will quickly get on the welfare rolls, if they weren’t already.
Somali enclaves in Minnesota are sending some of their young men to fight with ISIS. Because they had somehow become American citizens, they had American passports, allowing them to come back into America without a visa or further screening. ISIS has now metastasized itself in America to conduct terrorist acts on innocent American citizens. And Somalis aren’t the only American Muslims going to Syria to fight and train with ISIS. On top of ISIS followers, some American Muslims are being radicalized right here in America, as we found out the hard way in San Bernardino and Orlando.
Some Muslim families in America are still practicing honor killings (Islam-sanctioned murder) and female mutilation, even though it is unlawful in the U. S.
Millions of illegal Mexicans, along with Central and South Americans, are in America illegally. They do not speak English, they don’t try to learn English, they don’t try to assimilate into the American culture, they hide in the shadows and they suck up billions of taxpayer dollars in education, interpreters, housing, transportation, welfare, rent, medical care, child tax credits and earned income tax credits. Some say they are even getting free cell phones on your dime.
Announced Tuesday, August 30th, the Obama Administration has been and is dumping bus- and plane-loads of Syrian Muslim refugees in more towns and cities in America. According to The New York Times map, most of the Syrian refugees were settled east of the Mississippi River. It appears the lion’s share went into Illinois, Michigan, New York and the Northeastern States. More were resettled in the big cities of Washington State, Oregon, California and Arizona.
But let’s take a look at the makeup of the tens of million refugees and illegal aliens in America today. Most come from very poor, impoverished, socialist, or dictator-run countries. They are poorly educated, lacking in basic hygiene; highly communicable diseases are more prevalent in the population; they have a socialist mindset built in from childhood and they were hopelessly dependent on their home governments, if their home governments had any money to redistribute. They are used to getting handouts from government.
Like all humans, the refugees and illegal aliens really long to be in their native countries but come here because America is so “rich” and offers so many “free” things. Most of the illegal immigrants and refugees from Central and South America are Catholic Christians. Muslim immigrants and refugees, on the other hand, are diabolically opposed to and intolerant of Christianity in any form, or any other religion, for that matter.
Since the religious foundation of America is almost wholly Judeo-Christian, any hope of assimilation by Muslims is a pipe dream at best and a pending disaster at worst. It is, in fact, an unfixable multicultural mismatch that will doom Europe and probably America if allowed to continue.
The following statistics are not meant to be racist, but only observations of the facts.
White immigrants from Europe settled in America and made America what it was, but no longer is. They came to America with a strong work ethic, ambition and the drive to succeed in a free land. America became exceptional because of that work ethic, ambition and the drive to succeed in a free land. They also came with a predominantly Judeo-Christian heritage. There were no government handouts in the early days of mass immigration to America. Immigrants failed or succeeded on their own, which made them stronger and more self-reliant.
The white race has been the dominant race in America, but that dominance is slowly slipping away on the shaky foundation of multi-culturalism, forced on America by Progressives.
Due to the slave trade, the black population had risen to 9% of the total population by 1790. Most of the black population resided in the southern part of the U. S. until after the Civil War, when there was a great migration into the North.
Until the latter part of the Twentieth Century, there were very few Hispanics and Asians. By 2010, according to the Census Bureau, Non-Hispanic Whites were at 63.7%, Blacks at 12.6%, Hispanics at 16.3% and Asians were at 4.9%. The percentage of Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Muslims continue to grow while the White population continues to shrink.
A very large percentage of inner-city blacks, since the Civil War, have been wards of government in one form or another and absorb a huge portion of the welfare pie, even though they only represent 12.6% of the population. They have the most out-of-wedlock babies (70%). They will continue to vote in a bloc for those politicians (Democrats) who allow them to continue to be wards of government. That is not true of all blacks, however. Some blacks have escaped the cultural depravity and the cycle of poverty and have become educated and contributing members of society.
Hispanics, especially illegal immigrants, tend to take low-end jobs that don’t provide enough income to subsist and therefore are forced to find additional subsistence through government handouts. Because of that dependency, they, too, tend to vote as a bloc for Democrats, even if they are not U. S. citizens. The City of Seattle, a sanctuary city, was floating a proposal to let illegal aliens vote. Fortunately, the proposal was defeated. The courts would have shot it down anyway.
Muslim refugees from Middle Eastern countries come here with essentially nothing and become wards of the government and the taxpayer upon entry. Since most of them come from socialist or dictator-run countries, they would vote Democrat as well, once becoming American citizens.
Obviously, there are exceptions to the foregoing generalities.
But that is not the rest of the story. The white population in America is not reproducing at an effective rate to maintain its majority, and by 2050 the white race will be in the minority. However, the black and Hispanic populations are reproducing at a rate greater than what is required to maintain their populations. But what is even more alarming is that Islam is the fastest-growing religion on the planet and will outnumber the Christian population by the end of the Twenty-First Century. Given that between 5 to 10% of Islam is radicalized, this growing number of Muslims becomes of even greater concern to American security.
Since blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Muslims will eventually become the predominant races in America, the chances of America remaining a Constitutional Republic are slim to none. America will become a mob Democracy at best. The dreams of our Forefathers will be dashed on the rocky shores of multi-culturalism.
The let-’em-all-in, open-border crowd, mostly Democrats, have doomed a free America to the slow death of freedom into socialism and the potential of being conquered by a stronger power, like China or Russia. Europe could also succumb to a super-power, as its culture is decimated and has become morally and militarily weak by socialism, multi-culturalism and the Muslim hordes that have invaded Europe from Syria and Northern Africa.
A large majority of the American population has become weak and morally bankrupt. They don’t care about what government is doing. Way too many only care about 24/7-entertainment and the indulgence in pleasures of the flesh that can only be satisfied by money, drugs, alcohol and unrestrained sex. Our military readiness is in serious question, our economics are sinking into a bed of quicksand made up of endless grains of debt, and we are so divided that the chance of coming together on the principles of freedom, or anything else for that matter, is slim to none.
But it doesn’t take a crystal ball to read the future. It only takes assessing historical trends and accurate data to project where America will be in a decade, a generation, or a century. In fact, predicting the future of a culture or a nation is much easier than predicting the climate. And changes in the climate, warming or cooling, will be the least of our troubles when compared to what happens to America as it slowly loses its heritage, its honor, its integrity, its honesty and its freedom to the scourge of multi-culturalism and rapidly growing government dependency.
Can we stop the inexorable slide towards socialism, the one-world-order, the damage done to a nation by the merging of irreconcilable cultures and the degradation of the principles upon which that nation was founded? Maybe! But that will only come about by a well-funded organization, run by charismatic leaders and millions of Americans determined, AT ANY COST, to preserve a nation “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal,” under a Constitution which is judicially protected and defended as the “Supreme Law of the Land.”
Unfortunately, that Supreme Law has been so badly degraded that it has now become unrecognizable. That degradation was brought about by a certain party more interested in maintaining perpetual political power than preserving the principles of freedom. Most of the population doesn’t know or understand the document or the importance of its words to freedom and liberty. Those in the population who are dependent on government and hopelessly loyal to that one party don’t care what is in the document containing the Supreme Law. That party’s ideology is now so embedded in our institutions that to purge it from those institutions will be a gut-wrenching, mind-numbing, violent event, if it is even possible.
What freedom-loving Americans fail to recognize is that we are at war with that one party’s ideology that has bankrupted America and robbed it of its freedom. The roots of the bankruptcy started over 100 years ago in 1913 when government devised a way to enslave the entire population under the guise of irrational compassion ….. in exchange for votes. They then invented a Gestapo-like collection agency called the Internal Revenue Service to pay for the irrational compassion.
Sadly, when you are at war, constitutions or votes don’t have the power to stop the war. Only an overwhelming brute force can win a war and make the other side capitulate to that force. If history is any guide to the eventual outcome, we’re not holding our breath that such an overwhelming force can be assembled.
None of this is new and we are just regurgitating what wise men have known for decades, if not millennia. Albert J. Nook wrote a book in 1935 (81 years ago) entitled “Our Enemy, The State.” Our readers would be well advised to read at least the first Chapter of his book. http://www.barefootsworld.net/nockoets1.html to get a perspective at a time before Progressivism was fully institutionalized as it is today. We wrote a similar article in March of 2013 entitled “Why Government Is Your Enemy,” where we say, “You are only good for government if you can produce income upon which you pay taxes, so that government can redistribute your taxes to those who pay no taxes ….. for votes.”
Unfortunately, books or articles don’t have the power to alter a nation’s course. Only the people have that power. If the people won’t exercise that power, then what they are likely to get is a “third-world garbage dump.”
If you AGREE, let us know.
