Notes from “The Death of the West” by Pat Buchanan

The 1960s “counter-culture” has become America’s dominant culture and is systematically demolishing America’s history and heritage.

Published

on

Twenty years ago, The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization, by Pat Buchanan, was published. Viewed from 2021, he seems to have hit the mark on a variety of topics, while being a bit off here and there.

Europe

Europe will be inundated by an Islamic-Arab-African invasion, and most First World nations, including Japan, will have begun to slowly vanish from the earth. Relying upon UN population studies, Buchanan declared:

* By 2050, only 10% of the world’s people will be of European descent. One third of Europe’s people will be over 60, and one-in-ten over 80. Involuntary euthanasia has already come to Europe.

* Between now and 2050, Asia, Africa, and Latin America will grow by three to four billion people — 30 to 40 new Mexicos! — as Europe will lose the equivalent of the entire population of Germany, Poland, and Scandinavia.

* By 2050, 23 million Germans will have disappeared along with 16 million Italians and 30 million Russians.

* Either Europe must effect a radical cutback in pensions and health care for seniors, or Europe must import scores of millions of Arabs and Africans to care for the elderly and pay the taxes to sustain their welfare states.

Middle East

The 4.2 million Palestinians in Israel and on the West Bank and Gaza will explode to 9 million by 2025 and 15 million by 2050, when Palestinians will outnumber Israel’s Jewish population two-to-one.

* In less than 25 years, Iraq will have 42 million people and Iran, 94 million people, more than any European nation except Russia.

* The Islamic invasions of Spain and France in the eighth century, and of the Balkans and Central Europe from the 14th to the 17th centuries, will be reenacted in the lifetime of most of those now living

* Islam has already surpassed Catholicism as the largest religion on earth.

* Christian nations — Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox — have begun to die. In the chapter “Where Have All the Children Gone?” Buchanan explains why, and why the West can’t solve the demographic crisis before it leads to ‘The Death of the West.’

North America

An invasion of the United States is taking place, and America now harbors a “nation within a nation.”

* There are 30 million foreign-born in the U.S. today and between 9 and 11 million illegal aliens, or as many undocumented aliens in the U.S. as there are people in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

* Mexico is exporting its poor and unemployed for U.S. taxpayers to employ and educate. Radical and militant Hispanics and Mexican leaders alike believe this will lead to the cultural and demographic recapture of the Southwest from the U.S., reversing the results of The Mexican War.

* By supporting open borders, the GOP is committing suicide. First-time Hispanic voters chose Clinton 15-1 over Dole. Of the seven major immigration states — Florida Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, and Texas — Bush lost five, and perhaps six

* Of the 10 states with the smallest share of immigrants, Bush won all 10.

* European-Americans are a minority in America’s most populous state, California, and by 2004 in Texas as well.

* The agenda of California Hispanics includes race welfare for illegal aliens, racial preferences, bilingual education, open borders, dual citizenship, Cinqo de Mayo as a state holiday, and, in one case, replacing a statue of an American hero of the Mexican War with the Aztec god Quetzacoatl.

* 100,000 Caucasian Americans are fleeing California yearly.

* MeCHA, a student organization with chapters on 100s of campuses, has a program that reads like a Mexican version of the agenda of the white-supremacist Aryan Nation.

* In 2001 in Mexico, an Office for Mexicans Abroad was providing survival kits with everything from dried meat to anti-diarrhea pills to condoms to Mexicans setting off to break into the United States .

* As of 2000, there were 8.4 million foreign-born in California, as many people as there are in New Jersey. This was a primary cause of state energy and schools crises.

* Among Third World immigrants, poverty rates and incarceration rates are double and triple what they are among native-born Americans.

Culture Wars

The 1960s “counter-culture” has become America’s dominant culture, and the iconoclasts of that counter-culture are demolishing America’s history and heritage.

* Under Political Correctness, America’s greatest heroes — soldiers, explorers and statesmen from Columbus to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson — are under savage attack as genocidal racists and exploiters of indigenous peoples.

* The history books of American public schools are being rewritten with the old heroes ignored or trashed and Western civilization disparaged and demeaned.

* With the assault on Confederate books, symbols, flags, heroes, and holidays almost complete, the attack is now proceeding against the Puritan fathers, soldiers who fought in The Mexican War, and, in New Jersey, even against the Declaration of Independence itself.

* In some school districts, Mark Twain, Flannery O’Connor, and any valid portrayal of the American South, including Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, are now forbidden.

Indoctrination

Even the great Smithsonian Museums, which were once used to introduce school children to the greatness and glory of America’s past, are being used to indoctrinate children in how wicked and evil our forefathers were.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

If you’re having trouble listening to Joe for more than a minute, the tool above might work for you. On the Facebook site, “Best of the Web,” I saw this Biden bingo card. It could help you to stay the course when tuned into other broadcasts featuring our acting president.

‘Anti-Racists’ are Racist: Do Not Apologize for Being White

‘Anti-racists’ claim that whites, by virtue of their skin color, are detrimental to society

Published

on

Ibram X. Kendri, the bigoted professor from Boston University and director of their Center for Antiracist Research, says that whiteness is a problem for all of society, indeed for the entire globe. Who knew?!

Kendri, who was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, seemingly knows a lot about white people. In fact, he professes to know about every white person in America if not all over the world.

Me? I’m one of those people who merely gets up every day, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats a decent breakfast, and goes to work. I had no inkling that in the U.S. and other western nations white people like me had been “socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white.” How naive I have been all these years!

Now I discover that to be “less white” is a virtue! It requires one to be “less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant,” and, more humble, more willing to listen, more willing to believe, and, get this, “to break with the apathy” that white people like me exhibit and “to break with white solidarity.”

Woke Institutions and Brainwashed Authors

White solidarity? Darn, nobody told me about this. Thank goodness it’s all become so clear thanks to enlightened (white) authors such as Robin DiAngelo, who wrote the thoroughly racist and condescending book White Fragility, and thanks to companies such as Coca-Cola which have the foresight to impose programs for its white employees, to be less white.

When there’s a challenge in front of me, I actually do strive to find the right answer, particularly something related to numbers. I will collaborate on occasion, but most of the time I prefer to figure out things for myself, aided by the “all-knowing” Internet.

Am I arrogant, oppressive,  defensive, or ignorant? No one has ever brought this up. Being white, however, I guess I can’t help it! I don’t seek to inhibit the success of others, but I’m now informed that by virtue of my skin color I am detrimental to society. Mea culpa!

The Anti-Racist Racists

With Coca-Cola and other organizations teaching white people to be less white, I’m wondering, will the sequel be how Asians can be less yellow and Indians can be less brown? In America, both groups seem to excel academically. Perhaps only domineering Caucasians, particularly 60+ white males like me, however, are the ones upsetting the apple cart all over society.

Was I given a free pass for the last 40 years? I mean, all the while nobody mentioned my whiteness as a social and cultural problem. My black friends from Little League, high school, various hiking groups, and other groups around town haven’t said squat. So, up ’til now, presumably, I was doing okay. Perhaps they’ve merely been nice to me while whispering behind my back.

Heeding the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought our common goal was to live in harmony and to reach a state of color blindness where people were judged by the content of their character and not by their skin color. Hmmm…  I guess that is no longer in play.

I’m wondering, what would MLK conclude about today? Would he speak up against the propensity of the Left to define everybody else by class, sex, or race? Would he be opposed to pitting young against old, rich against poor, black against white, rural against urban, male against female, and all the other phony dichotomies that the Left relentlessly promulgates each day?

Absurd From the Get-Go

Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become “less black.” The  absurdity of regarding all white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.

How long will “woke” organizations maintain this illusion? Have they been coerced to the point where they’re afraid to say, “This is ridiculous, and needs to stop now”? [Actually, they have been coerced.] Will decades pass before we see the end of this malarkey?

I do not apologize for being a white person, just as no person of color has to apologize for their ethnic background, skin color, race, or religion. If you’re a good citizen who respects the rights of others, that, my friend, is sufficient.

Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, wishes we would do away with Black History month and merely have history. Freeman also wants us to stop regarding individuals as black and white and simply let people be people. Amen to that.
