Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan is out with a column, “Is Third World America Inevitable?,” today hailing Ann Coulter’s new book, “Adios, America!,” warning that immigration reform “will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a ‘Third World hellhole.’”
Buchanan warns that ethnic diversity will fuel racial tensions, violence and terrorism, likening the purported dangers of immigration to Russian aggression in Eastern Europe and threats from North Korea.
He also laments that immigration will cripple the electoral prospects of the GOP, predicting that it will soon become “impossible” for a Republican presidential candidate to win a White House bid.
Thousands of U.S. troops safeguard the border of South Korea. U.S. warships patrol the South China Sea to stand witness to the territorial claims of Asian allies against China.
U.S. troops move in and out of the Baltic States to signal our willingness to defend the frontiers of these tiny NATO allies.
Yet nothing that happens on these borders imperils America so much as what is happening on our own bleeding border with Mexico.
Over three decades, that border has been a causeway into the USA for millions of illegal immigrants who are changing the face of America – to the delight of those who think the country we grew up in was ugly.
All sides of this quarrel have been using the figure of 11 million people here illegally. In her new best-seller “Adios, America!” Ann Coulter makes a compelling case that the real figure is close to 30 million.
If that is true, and if the next president embraces amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, that will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a “Third World hellhole.”
Politically, immigrants from Third World countries, as they rely upon government for food, housing assistance, health care and the education of their children, support the Party of Government.
Mitt Romney lost the two fastest-growing major minorities, Hispanics and Asians, who now account for more than a fifth of our population and a seventh of our voters, by 40 points. And as their numbers and voting percentages rise, the GOP will find that reaching 270 electoral votes is not only more difficult than in Reagan’s day, it has become impossible.
Among the myths or lies drummed into the heads of Americans is that we have always been a “nation of immigrants,” and “diversity,” i.e., racial, ethnic and religious diversity, “is a strength.”
Has the addition of tens of millions of Asian and African Muslims strengthened the Old Continent that ruled the world? Or do they imperil its security and survival as the cradle and heartland of the West?
As racial, ethic [sic] and religious hatreds pull people apart and create terrorists all over our disintegrating world, why would we make ourselves ever more diverse?
