The Mexico Way

The Mexico Way, by Steve Sailer.

[C]onsider how badly the elite media continues to miss the point of the most notorious thing [Trump] ever said, this infinitely denounced passage in his June 16, 2015, speech announcing his candidacy:

“When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems…. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Obviously from context, Trump’s “They’re rapists” does not mean, as often alleged, “They’re all rapists.”

Instead, he’s raising the apparently excessively subtle question: “Why, with all the world to choose from, do we let immigrate any rapists?” …

But, to the press, that question seems inappropriate to ask. …

Moreover, it’s striking how few in the press demonstrated any understanding of Trump’s statement “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.”

The obvious question ought to be: Who is the “they” in that sentence?

Clearly, Trump is accusing the Mexican ruling class—the politicians and billionaires like Carlos Slim, the largest single shareholder of The New York Times—of dumping their surplus population on the United States.

Most people understand that, but the PC crew purport not to.
