VDARE: American Skier Competing For Paraguay Proof That Latino Immigrants 'Cannot Assimilate'
Trust the white nationalists at VDARE.com to come up with a racist, anti-immigrant angle to the winter Olympics.
While others might have been touched by the story of Paraguayan-born American slopestyle skier Julia Marino becoming Paraguay’s very first winter Olympian (she holds dual citizenship), VDARE writer Matthew Richer sees it as proof that Latino immigrants are unable to assimilate into American culture. “If an Hispanic immigrant with this kind of privileged American upbringing cannot assimilate, what hope is there for the rest of them?” he writes.
Of course, Richer doesn’t bother to question whether Staten Island investment banker Gary di Silvestri’s decision to compete in the Olympics for the nation of Dominica (also becoming that country’s first winter Olympian) means that Italian-Americans are unable to assimilate into American culture, but we’re sure that was his next point.
Marino was adopted as a baby and enjoyed a privileged American upbringing. She even attended a waspy New England boarding school where she competed on the ski team.
But even though Marino only recently visited Paraguay for the first time since her adoption, she is now in Sochi to represent her country. “The Olympics [is] about representing where you’re from,” she told The Boston Globe. Indeed.
If an Hispanic immigrant with this kind of privileged American upbringing cannot assimilate, what hope is there for the rest of them?
