Kerry & His EU La Familia Know Nothing About Bonds Between Peoples

Other than suggesting that “Brexit might not happen,” man of the people John Kerry said something more subtly statist after Brexit:

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry vouched for the bond between the UK and the US by alluded to treaties signed by Power, not by The People. For his mandarin mambo-jumbo, Kerry, no doubt, would have been eviscerated by UK’s Independence Party Nigel Farage.

To the extent that the Anglo-American people share a bond—it’s not because Bush, Blair, Obama and the outgoing U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron ratified agreements we’ve never read. It’s because of a common ancestry, folkways, history, language, literature.

America as it was founded was a rib from the British ribcage. Kerry and his EU La Familia know nothing about bonds and a lack thereof between peoples of different nations.

Swollen Heads At National Review Exposed

National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson “reached peak leftism” when he declared his sympathies were “more with John Brown than John Calhoun,” in an article titled “We Have Officially Reached Peak Leftism” (June 24, 2015). In 1856, Brown’s free-soil activists snatched five pro-slavery settlers near Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas and split the captives’ skulls with broadswords, in an act of biblical retribution gone mad.

So it’s not that surprising that Williamson’s exquisite moral compass has led him to wish death upon white, working-class America. According to Breitbart.com, Williamson wrote this:

The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.

This is not passionate writing; it’s plain hateful. Whatever merit there is in the indictment of working-class Americans—a case made well by political scientist Charles Murray, in “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010”—this ain’t it. Williamson writes in arrogance and contempt.

But, as further divulged by Breitbart, another National Review staff writer feels as Williamson does. He is David French (the object of my new column, “Someone Should Tell Bill Kristol Dwarf Tossing Is Cruel”). The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol’s candidate to run an independent presidential campaign is down with Williamson:

[French] described Williamson’s piece as “excellent” and said that Williamson’s words were “fundamentally true and important to say.”

French went on to dismiss the struggles white working class Americans endure.

“Citizens of the world’s most prosperous nation, they face challenges — of course — but no true calamities,” French wrote.

While French suggests that the decline of America’s middle class and manufacturing power is no true calamity, others could argue that the greater a nation or culture, the more sorrowful it is to witness its decline — much the same way that history would mourn the destruction of the Palace of Versailles more than the totaling of Justin Bieber’s car.

French insists that the devastation of the working-class’ livelihoods is unrelated to failed federal policies such as mass immigration …

I hate the, “Would he be saying this if … ” game. But I’ll indulge this once. It’s apposite. Would Williamson and French ever lay into the black underclass with the same degree of venom?

‘Think About The Kids: No! F-ck The Kids. Adult Lives Matter, Too’

“F-ck The Kids. Adult Lives Matter, Too.” That’s it. That’s my official statement about all kid-related arguments, first “articulated”—in scare quotes, because not exactly articulate—in “GOP Debate: America-First Alliance Emerges; Neoconservatives Neutralized,” scrubbed from the WND version but sensibly retained by the other editors.

After fielding another angry “Think About The Kids’ missive on a Twitter thread, I thought I should make my “position” (self-deprecating quotes) clear.

The kids are overrated. Most of them are socialists. (Their brains are not fully formed until the early 20s, or something.) Traditionalists value hierarchy (see August 14 … 2002 column). True-blue cultural conservatism doesn’t deify the effing Kids.

As the great Florence King put it, “… children have no business expressing opinions on anything except, ‘Do you have enough room in the toes?'”

Only 1 In 5 Americans Speaks English, Kinda

America, English, IMMIGRATION, The West

The Center for Immigration Studies revealed that “61 Million Immigrants and Their Young Children Now Live in the United States.” One in five Americans is a foreigner.

The countries of origin whence immigrants to the US come are unavailable in the Current Population Survey (CPS), from which the CIS data is culled.

Ridiculously, “The 1970 Census was the last census to ask about parents’ place of birth.” “The 2000 Census was the last census to identify the foreign-born,” so birthplace of parents is currently ignored by the Census Bureau, extrapolated indirectly by our researchers.

Here’s a hint, via Census American Community Survey, as to the future of English in America, a country founded by Englishmen who wrote high English:

More than one in five U.S. residents speak a language other than English at home, a record, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In an analysis of the recent Census American Community Survey, a huge surge was recorded in those who speak Chinese, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu, Pakistan’s national language.

A day is coming when English speakers won’t be able to get jobs speaking their native language.
