Is the US Crossing the Rubicon? Led by Tucker Carlson?

Is the US Crossing the Rubicon? Led by Tucker Carlson? Finally, someone with a megaphone addresses the central issue in US politics. The Overton window just shifted. The left will hate this, having managed to suppress public discussion of this for decades. Tucker has poked them where it hurts. Demography is destiny.

First, Tucker Carlson’s monologue is highly recommended if you have time, though we’ve quoted the most vital bits below:

If you were in sixth grade, for example, and without telling you, your parents adopted a bunch of new siblings and gave them brand new bikes and let them stay up later and helped them with their homework and give them twice the allowance that they gave you. You would say to your siblings, “You know, I think we’re being replaced by kids that our parents love more.” And it would be kind of hard to argue against you because look at the evidence. …

So this matters on a bunch of different levels. But on the most basic level, it’s a voting rights question. In a democracy, one person equals one vote. If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I’d become disenfranchized as a current voter. So I don’t understand. I mean, everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it. “Oh, the White replacement.” No, no, no. This is a voting rights question. I have less political power because they’re importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that? The power that I have as an American, guaranteed at birth, is one man, one vote, and they’re diluting it. No, they’re not allowed to do that. Why are we putting up with this? …

You wonder how much longer they imagine Americans are going to go along with this; an entire country forced to lie about everything all the time. It can’t go on forever, but you can see why they’re trying it.

Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions. Let’s say that again for emphasis, because it is the secret to the entire immigration debate: Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions. In order to win and maintain power. Democrats plan to change the population of the country. They’re no longer trying to win you over with their program. They’re obviously not trying to improve your life. They don’t even really care about your vote anymore. Their goal is to make you irrelevant.

That is provably true. And because it’s true, it drives them absolutely crazy when you say it out loud. A hurt dog barks. They scream about how noting the obvious is immoral, that you’re a racist if you dare to repeat things that they themselves proudly say. Most people go along with this absurd standard and dutifully shut up; they don’t think they have a choice. But no matter what they’re allowed to say in public, everyone understands the truth: When you change who votes, you change who wins. …

The painful decline of California (Tucker knows what he is is talking about, having grown up in SF):

Between 1948 and 1992, the state of California voted for exactly one Democratic presidential candidate. Among America’s big population centers, in vivid contrast to Chicago and New York, California was reliably, proudly Republican. For eight years, no less a figure than Ronald Reagan ran the state. California had the country’s best schools, the best infrastructure, the best economy, not to mention the prettiest national environment on the planet. California was a model for the world.

In 1980, Ronald Reagan, California’s former governor, became president of the United States. In retrospect, it never got any better for California. Midway through his second term, Reagan signed something called the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Though he likely didn’t realize it at the time, that law made future Ronald Reagans impossible. The Immigration Reform and Control Act brought about an amnesty, and a path to citizenship, for nearly three million foreign nationals living in the U.S. illegally. The next year, by executive order, Reagan added to that number. He halted the deportation of another 100,000 illegal minors, the Dreamers of his day.

The rest of the world watched carefully as this happened. Would-be migrants everywhere concluded that there was no real penalty for breaking America’s laws. In fact, there was a reward. Reagan also signed a law that required hospitals to provide free medical care regardless of immigration status. The Supreme Court had already guaranteed free education to anyone who showed up without a visa. So: Free hospitals, free schools, and amnesty if you get caught. Why wouldn’t the rest of the world come? They soon did. …

Huge new waves of migrants arrived immediately, many of them illegal. California was transformed virtually overnight into a Democratic state. In 1988, George H.W. Bush narrowly won California in the presidential election, but no Republican has won that state since. No Republican ever will win in California, not in our lifetimes. …

The counties in California with the highest percentage of Republicans are, not coincidentally, those with the lowest percentage of immigrants and vice versa. California changed because the population changed.

Analysis of the 2012 presidential election, for example, showed that if you lived in the state of California in 1980, you probably still voted Republican. Your views hadn’t really changed. But as your state swelled with foreign voters, your views became irrelevant. Your political power, the power to control your own life, disappeared with the arrival of new people who diluted your vote. That was the whole point.

That’s not democracy, it’s cheating. Imagine watching a football game where one team decides to start the third quarter with an extra 40 players on the field. Would you consider that fair play? The Democratic Party did something very much like that in the state of California. They rigged the game with more people. They packed the electorate. As a result, Americans who grew up in California lost their most basic right in a democracy, the right to have their votes count. …

In 1986, California was the richest landmass of its size in the world. California now has more poor people than any state in the country as of this year, according to the best measurements available from the federal government. California has a higher poverty rate than Mississippi, indeed the highest in the nation. …

It’s the deepest held leftist policy, dearer even than climate change:

How did a place as idyllic as California become so miserable that huge numbers of people who were born there decided to abandon their homes and flee? If you cared about the United States, you would want to know the answer and you’d want to make absolutely certain it didn’t happen anywhere else. Yet the Democratic Party is working to make certain it happens everywhere else. That’s not a slur. It’s not a guess. We know it because they brag about it constantly.

The left becomes unhinged if you point out that American voters are being replaced by Democratic Party loyalists from other countries. You’re absolutely not allowed to say that, but they’re allowed to say that. And they do. They say it all the time. They’ve done studies on it, written long books about it, talked about it endlessly on television, often in the ugliest racial terms. They’re not ashamed at all, they don’t think they have to be ashamed. In the fall of 2018, a columnist for The New York Times wrote a piece that was literally entitled “We Can Replace Them“. …

They tell you that demographic replacement is an obsession on the right. No, it’s not. They say it’s some horrifying right-wing conspiracy theory, that the right is obsessed with it. No, the left is obsessed with it. In fact, it’s the central idea of the modern Democratic Party. Demographic replacement is their obsession because it’s their path to power. …

Leftists in Israel know the path to power is to prevent immigration, so they say so:

Go to the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) website sometime if you’d like a glimpse of what an unvarnished conversation about a country’s national interest might look like. In a short essay posted to the site, the ADL explains why the state of Israel should not allow more Arabs to become citizens with voting rights:

“With historically high birth rates among the Palestinians and a possible influx of Palestinian refugees and their descendants now living around the world,” the ADL explains, “Jews would quickly be a minority within a bi-national state, thus likely ending any semblance of equal representation and protections. In this situation, the Jewish population would be increasingly politically — and potentially physically — vulnerable.

“It is unrealistic and unacceptable,” the ADL continues, “to expect the State of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory.”

Now, from Israel’s perspective, this makes perfect sense. Why would any democratic nation make its own citizens less powerful? Isn’t that the deepest betrayal of all? In the words of the ADL, why would a government subvert its own sovereign existence? Good question.

Somehow Americans don’t get to vote on the issue, except in 2016 when one candidate finally brought it up obliquely, promising to build a wall. Surprisingly, he won.

Most Americans aren’t even allowed to have the conversation. So they watch from the sidelines as their democracy is murdered by people who claim to be its defenders. …

This is what it looks like when an entire native population — Black and White, but every one of them an American — is systematically disenfranchized.

Middle class Americans become less powerful every year. They have less economic power, and thanks to mass immigration, they now have less political power.

The leaders making these changes have no sympathy for their victims. They blame the country for its own suffering. You always hate the people you hurt.

Doesn’t that bell the cat? The left will do their best to ignore it, expect to redouble their efforts to get Carlson’s show canceled. Nonetheless, a watershed has been crossed, and perhaps the long overdue conversation about power and race in America will begin.

kihowi:

Conservatives watch the horse disappear over the horizon and start a tentative discussion on stable doors.

Richard Taylor:

If Tucker can keep his show despite their protests and even mock them along the way, that’s a big deal.

I think it’s fair to say, Tucker went as far on this issue as any host has in the last 40 years of American TV. I can’t think of any network pundit who framed it this strongly.

Jonathon Mason:

It is only a relatively short period of time since the Republicans were in charge of all branches of government and they did not attempt to bring in new immigration legislation propose something like a moratorium on immigration for 10-years.

Bardon Kaldian:

The core issue is nationality anchored in race.

Whites, if they massively immigrate in the US — are automatically on the white, European side of the Kulturkampf. They are on the side of Columbus, Jefferson, Mozart, Edison, ….

This is primarily a culture war for the “soul of America”. It is about who is American”.

Hapalong Cassidy:

After that monologue, getting fired might be the least of Tucker’s worries now. The ADL could have him JFK’ed.

Joe Biden (in 2015):

“By 2017, those of us of European stock will be an absolute minority in the United States of America,” Biden said at a State Department luncheon for Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. According to pool reports, Biden added that that’s “not a bad thing, that’s a good thing” because it means the country is becoming more diverse.

The U.S. Census Bureau revealed last week that in 2014, minorities made up a majority of children under five years of age in the United States for the first time.

Anonymous from the UK:

In the UK, the Blair/Brown ‘New Labour’ regime attempted to pull off the same trick, … instituting a full-on full blown Economist style ‘open borders’ free for all.

No doubt, part of the attraction was of importing a permanent vote farm to ensure an automatic, in built permanent Labour Party hegemony in the UK.

But, alas, it all blew up in their faces. Part of this Devil’s calculus was that the proles, the drones, the white industrial working class would keep being their performing seals their masters relied upon and vote Labour in their droves ‘they’ve got nowhere else to go’ …
But … they’ve broken the habit and taboo of generations and found ‘somewhere else to go’ — the Conservative Party.

Thus the ‘clever-clever’ scheme was not so clever after all.
