Last week, we said something on television that the usual chorus of hyperaggressive liars is now pretending was somehow highly controversial. Ordinarily, we’d ignore all of this. Once you’ve been denounced as a White supremacist for quoting Martin Luther King Jr., you realize such criticism is all just all another form of social control. Honestly, who cares what they think?
But in this one case, we thought it might be worth pausing to restate the original point, both because it was true and worth saying, and also because America badly needs a national conversation about it.
On Thursday, our friend Mark Steyn guest-hosted the 7 p.m. hour on Fox. He did a segment on how federal authorities are allowing illegal aliens to fly without ID — something that, in case you haven’t noticed, you are not permitted to do. The following exchange took place in response to that story:
TUCKER CARLSON, ‘FOX NEWS PRIMETIME’, APRIL 8: I’m laughing because this is one of about 10 stories that I know you’ve covered where the government shows preference to people who have shown absolute contempt for our customs, our laws, our system itself, and they’re being treated better than American citizens.
Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term “replacement,” if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World. But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.
Let’s just say if that’s true, if look, if this was happening in your house, 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, every 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?
At least one prediction came true right away, all those little gatekeepers on Twitter did become hysterical. They’ve spent the last four days jumping up and down furiously, trying once again to pull the show off the air. Once again, they will fail, though it is amusing to see them keep at it. (They get so enraged. It’s a riot.)
But why all the anger? If someone says something you think is wrong, is your first instinct to hurt them? Probably not. Normal people don’t respond that way. If you hear something you think is incorrect, you try to correct it. But getting the facts right is hardly the point of this exercise. The point is to prevent unauthorized conversations from starting in the first place. “Shut up, racist! No more questions!” You’ve heard that before.
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…
