And Europe and Japan and Korea and Russia. It will all work out. After all, Europe and the United States aren’t prosperous societies because of the people and culture that have lived and developed in these places over centuries. It’s all magic dirt or something. Import someone from East Timor to Green Bay and they’re instantly as American as apple pie and will grow the economy and everything will be fucking awesome.
the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.
And if you have any concerns about millions of Africans, Asians, and “Latin” Americans moving into your country, state, city, or neighborhood, then you’re just a racist deplorable who needs to be replaced.
The population of the United States has tripled in the past 100 years. So obviously it needs to triple again in even less time. It needs to keep growing forever. I mean that’s just an unquestionable gospel truth. The end.
I am a climate denier. I deny that there is a climate.
I hate the environment. I want to destroy it.
I love pollution.
I want people to die.
I am racist.
The most important thing in the world to me is that oil companies make big profits.
I hate “renewable energy.”
I don’t believe in science.
Did I miss anything?
By the way, all of this is symbolic. These non-binding “accords” and “protocols” to combat “climate change” do nothing to reduce carbon emissions. They are an excuse in Europe to raise taxes on energy, and in the United States to issue more environmental regulations that favor certain businesses, but no country ever meets the ridiculous targets. Is there anyone who believes that carbon emissions in 2025 were actually going to be 1/4 of what they were in 2005 just because some president signed a piece of paper in 2016?
Remember the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 that Bill Clinton signed, but never even attempted to have ratified by the Senate?
“You have to judge Kyoto to have been a failure. Just on the merits of what was done as a result of the agreement and countries not actually living up to their commitments or staying with the agreement,”
Good article by Jeff Tucker (not always a huge fan), on the Trump Derangement Syndrome currently afflicting those on the center Left. Trump is unintentionally destroying people’s faith in the sanctity of the American State. He’s not doing this by actually attacking the government. In fact the government will almost certainly continue to grow under his administration. No, it’s because of this:
he is ruining the mystery of the state, and thereby discrediting their holy institutions.
Interesting footage of the Berkeley riot. Worth watching to see what so called “student protesters” are really all about.
I’d like to point out one thing about this video. A brief clip of Cenk Uygur at the 4:55 mark. Kudos to Uygur for condemning the riots. However, I have to call bullshit on this specific remark: “a true progressive doesn’t do violence by definition.”
I guess the following people were not true progressives despite being identified as such: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Bill Ayers, Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama. These men were certainly willing to “do violence” in an attempt to achieve their supposedly progressive ends.
The entire progressive philosophy has, since its inception, been predicated on violence. Even when not rioting (which by the way they do a lot), progressives want to force people to behave in a way that conforms to their worldview. That’s the whole point. And they want to use government violence to achieve this if they are unable get their way through mere intimidation.
An example of progressivism in action is drug prohibition. Progressives in the early twentieth century insisted on the regulation and eventual outlawing of the possession or sale of substances they didn’t like. This even included alcohol for a period of time. Failure to follow these rules meant being locked up in a government dungeon as punishment. Interestingly, decades later when the political Left changed their minds and decided drugs were great they turned around and blamed conservatives for what their forbears had instituted. Conservatives had begun to agree with them on this issue so of course their attitudes shifted. (It should be noted that conservatives have no problem using government violence either. They are, however, less inventive in coming up with new rules to enforce.)
Income tax is another progressive era invention. Does anyone really believe that millions of Americans would voluntarily hand over a third of their income to the State if the IRS wasn’t prepared to use violence to enforce payment?
Today we see equally disturbing policies that seek to upend cultural norms under threat of force. Don’t want to bake a cake for a gay wedding? Don’t want to let men identifying as women use the ladies’ restroom? Don’t want to hire a certain percentage of minorities or women to work at your company? In some rare cases progressives may show up and smash your windows or beat you up. But of much greater concern is that In certain arbitrary circumstances, making any of these decisions can result in your business being taken away from you. You may also be forced to pay thousands of dollars to someone who was offended by your actions even though no actual physical harm was inflicted on that person. Government guns are the enforcement mechanism for all of this even if most progressives choose to ignore that aspect of their ideology.
Sorry Cenk, progressivism equals violence. It always has. It always will. It cannot exist without violence.
Four black people in Obama’s hometown, who seem to hate Donald Trump and white people in general, kidnapped and tortured a mentally disabled white man. Unlike all the alleged hate crimes committed by white Trump supporters against blacks, gays, muslims, latinos, etc. that always turn out to be fake, this crime is not really in doubt. The perpetrators videotaped the torture and uploaded it to Facebook.
Missed this little exchanged that happened prior to the election because I don’t watch the Clinton News Network. But nice to see Pat is still getting some airtime. A man of principle. And a man of peace. He’s been predicting the populist revolt for years. He tried to instigate it back in the 1990’s. It’s finally here. Enjoy it while it lasts Mr. Buchanan. You worked harder, and sacrificed more than most to see it come to fruition.
Some jerk from the Southern Poverty Law Center, which I doubt has any support among poor Southerners, says the term “Drain the Swamp” is racist. The CNN dimwit “appreciates” this point of view. Of course he does.
So anyway, if you really hate Trump, and you want to be angry all the time, just watch CNN all day and they’ll gladly tell you why everything Trump or Republicans say or do is racist even if it’s something Democrats also say but it’s not racist when they say it. Got that Comrade? You angry yet? Want to be in a bad mood 24 hours a day for the next four years? Watch some good ‘ol fashioned American Cable News.
The establishment tried to shove another Bush or Clinton down our throats and they got Trumped.
I doubt that the Donald will be a very effective president. I am under no illusion that he’s going to usher in some great era of limited government or general contentment among the masses. But I still feel America dodged the Hillary bullet and for that I’m thankful. Simply by winning the election, Trump accomplished some good things whether he even realizes it himself.
The media have been exposed for the establishment shills they are. No one outside of hardcore partisan Democrats can possibly ever believe anything they “report” from now on.
The GOP as we’ve known it for the last three decades is dead. The neocons have been rebuked by the masses. Running on an Israel first warmongering platform is no longer going to win elections.
Globalism has suffered a huge defeat. The general conceit emanating from the imperial capital of Washington D.C. that the global “order” in place since World War II must never end is no longer accepted by the average Joe. Americans no longer feel the need to accept unlimited subsidized immigration while supporting wars against any “rogue” state that resists the US government’s will.
Political correctness has suffered a major blow. The latest left wing dogma is not accepted by everyone, and people no longer cower in fear at being called racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. etc.
It’s a good day in America. Let’s hope the actual reality of the Trump presidency doesn’t ruin it completely.
