There are days when I crave erudite discussion.
But there are days when I'm just in the mood to laugh and point at WHAARGARBL.
Today is one of the WHAARGARBL days. So I said to myself, "Self, you old so-and-so, where can we go for some quality panty-bunching? What topic will provoke the socially marginal, the fecklessly noisy, the Internet Tough Guy, and every other subset of digital twerp into a paroxysm of spittle-flecked rage?"
Thank God for swarthy babies.
In the latest sign of the nation’s shifting racial and ethnic composition, births to Asian, black and Hispanic women in the United States are on the verge of surpassing births to non-Hispanic whites.
Minorities accounted for 48 percent of all births in the nation in the 12 months ending July 2008. While it will most likely take years for health statisticians to confirm precisely when the 50 percent benchmark will have been reached, demographers said it could occur this year.
This, I saw immediately, was the golden gateway to the kingdom of WHAARGARBL. Like a pig with an unerring nose for truffles, I immediately decamped to Google Blog Search and searched for "minority babies majority".
I was not disappointed.
Well, I mean, I was disappointed not to be disappointed, if you catch my meaning. That is to say, my low opinion of humanity in general and people on the internet in particular was confirmed.
Let's sample, shall we?
When do WE, the WHITE Americans, demand the rights that ILLEGALS have been given and how do we go about becoming at least an EQUAL race in America?
. . .
I am going to offend some folks with this one, but here’s the truth, they breed like cock roaches, and we keep right on letting the ILLEGALS in and allowing them to stock America up with an endless supply of anchor babies.
Texas Fred is deeply concerned that all these dark babies will diminish the glory that is White America.
Here is Texas Fred.
Okay, let's move on. Who's next? American Renaissance News? Would that be the American Renaissance that's the crypto-racist organization?
As a White American Citizen, I consider the non whites’ outbreeding the Whites in my own country to be a hateful racially motivated attack.
Yeop, that's them.
How about Light in the Forest? That was a great book back in junior high! Surely they offer some good sense!
America is the product of white European civilization. When whites cease to be the controlling majority of America it will cease to be the country that has attracted peoples from all over the world.
White American's [sic] are still the majority of this nation and we have a very small window of opportunity to keep it that way but it is closing rapidly.
My only hope is that our new minority baby overlords will know how to use an apostrophe properly.
Hmm — Ozark Freedom Fighter. Uh oh. My bigoted elitist coastal spidey-sense is tingling.
It is ALMOST too late to do anything about it. ALMOST. Another year or two and it WILL be TOO late. If we act now, with great sacrifice and focus, with total dedication to the goal of reversing the demographic trend it is possible. It will mean abandonment of some of the more reckless issues like political correctness. It will mean profiling. It will mean deportations. It will mean cracking down on organizations like CAIR and closing Muslim schools and prosecuting people who openly advocate Islamic ideology over any other religion. It will mean not paying for medical services, like childbirth, for non citizens. It will mean getting rid of most of the pansy politicians we now have and replacing them with men and women who have the guts to stand up and shake their fist in the face of Mohammed.
Yeah! We've got to stop all these damned Muslims from sneaking over the boarder from — uh — Canada?
Cheer me up, Cantankerous Old White Guy!
There is a very good chance that when the country is a hodge podge of out of work starving people sitting around decaying electronics with no electricity because no one is capable of running anything……the white person might be missed. Not because the new majority ever thought we were kind and good and helped build a country where everyone wanted to come and live.
It's totally true. Have you ever seen an electrician with so much as a tan? The very notion!
How about it, Guy White: Making Sense on Race?
At least when Adolf Hitler wanted to rid his country of the Jews, he was honest about his dislike for them. Here we are told that whites need to be replaced and any replacement – in demography, employment, education – is a cause to celebrate.
Wow! Godwin right out of the gate.
Okay, that's enough. I'm getting nauseous.
Now, I've got three non-white babies, so I'm biased. But I don't particularly care what skin color predominates in the United States of America. Despite being very white myself, I don't particularly care whether we now sell more salsa than ketchup. I don't particularly care if there are more people named Sanchez or Wong than Smith or Jones. I don't care if more families celebrate Lunar New Year than St. Patrick's Day.
I do care about values and norms that make our culture great and even, dare I say, superior. Among them are the rule of law (and equality before it), success in return for hard work, freedom of thought and expression and worship, and the dignity and autonomy of the individual. The man who shares those values is my brother and my countryman, whatever his last name is and whatever weird shit he eats or sets fire to on holidays. The man who rejects them is my enemy, whether or not he traces his family back to Plymouth Rock. I am unconvinced that those values are preserved when a homeschooling quiverfull mother pumps out kids in Kansas rather than an immigrant teen pumping them out in an East L.A. barrio. Do some immigrants hold different values? Yes. But so do many born-and-bred Americans. We live in a culture in which prominent affluent white people scorn and condemn these values — often they suggest we must abandon these culturally superior values precisely because we are threatened by other cultures. But if Hamid from East Yemen thinks that every human being detained by the government deserves a chance at some sort of judicial review, then he's more a real American to me than Liz Cheney. And his kids — if they are born and raised here — may grow to become even bigger boosters of those core freedoms that make us great.
