(Note: This is an expanded version of the 12th essay of my March 2016 book Putnam Liberty Notes)
This essay may seem a tad edgy to some. I am going to point out the difference between the Statue of Liberty that stands in New York harbor, and the Statute of Liberty (the U.S. Constitution).
The Statue of Liberty was given to America by France in the second half of the 19th century. The Founders were long dead when the Statue was dedicated in 1886. The Statue depicts a woman with a torch, possibly the Roman goddess Libertas. The Statue and Ellis Island are the symbols of immigration to the U.S.A. All of my ancestors immigrated before Ellis Island was made a federal immigrant processing center, and before the erection of the Statue. As such, I have no emotional connection to the Statue. The poem on the Statue that begs the world to send her (America) the “tired”, “poor”, “huddled masses”, “homeless”, and “wretched refuse” was written by a Jewess named Emma Lazarus.
The Statute of Liberty is the United States Constitution. The Statute was given us by our own countrymen. After years of warfare, America was victorious over Britain. We established a free republic, a government bound by laws –not a democracy. The legal embodiment of this was the U.S. Constitution, written in 1787 and ratified in 1789.
The U.S. Constitution (and the Bill of Rights appended to it in 1791) established a system of checks and balances between the three branches of government, set up representative democracy as a guard against mob rule, and secured the rights of the citizens. The Constitution also allocated the power to control immigration to the federal/national/central government.
Article 1 Section 8 Paragraph 4 of the Constitution provides that Congress has the power to: “Establish a uniform rule of Naturalization”.
Congress did establish this uniform rule in 1790 with a single paragraph law; this law was revised and expanded in 1795. In both acts, citizenship was limited to those who were a “free white person”. They also used the 1792 militia act to ensure that only free white males were to serve in the state militias.
As further proof of the Founder’s viewpoint, in his 1776 pamphlet Common Sense, Thomas Paine stated the following: “Europe, and not England, is the parent country of America”.
America was founded by European peoples, primarily Protestant Europeans from the British Isles and Western Europe. Whether one views this as good, bad, or neither here nor there –it is reality. (I view it as quite good).
Americans have the legal and moral right to restrict entry of foreigners into our country. Just as a man has the right to control who is allowed into his home, the national family may control who is allowed entry into our national home, our territory. The principle is the same.
Without amending the Constitution we could, temporarily or permanently, open our borders to every human on earth –without regard to race, religion, health issues or criminal background. On the other end of the scale, we could forever close our borders to all immigrants. Both options would be legal; the first would also be an act of national suicide.
Illegal immigration, primarily of Spanish speaking Mexicans and Central Americans crossing our southern border, has been a problem in the U.S.A. for several decades. The last two years have seen this issue come to the national forefront, in large part because of the wave of “children” immigrants in 2014, the Alt-Right’s internet activities, and the Trump campaign.
Many of these immigrants do not desire to assimilate, and some public schools now have classes for students who do not speak English! As a patriot suspicious of governmental authority, I do not support public schools or driver’s licenses for anyone –much less for immigrants who will not even speak our language!
My readers, have you not heard of “Aztlan” and the Reconquista? America has a major problem on its hands. Mexicans are not just looking for a good paying job when they cross the border to the U.S. The U.S.A. is, right now, losing control of the American Southwest.
Moving on to the events in Europe in the last year and a half, it is just as dark over there. The U.S. and Israeli approved and funded wars in the Middle East, and especially the attempt to oust Bashar Assad (the democratic leader of a secular state) have created great turmoil and a large number of refugees.
As the secular regime of Assad slowly crumbles, the Islamic fundamentalist rebels –many of whom want Sharia law- are taking over large parts of Syria and Iraq. This was no doubt planned, as it also likely was when Libya was toppled.
The European Union is pressing its member states to admit large numbers of (usually Islamic) ethnic Middle Easterners to their country. This is madness! As of late December 2015, at least 1 million “migrants” had entered Europe from the Middle East and west Asia. Let that sink in, One Million.
These Middle Easterners cannot assimilate, even if they and we both desired for them to do so. Genetics determine mental capabilities, physical attributes, and emotional makeup. Back when people lived on farms, they knew that there are differences in breeds of animals, even ones that can cross breed (such as the many breeds of dogs). But modern sensitive Americans have forgotten this.
The “proposition nation/civic nationalism” garbage is a lie, and always has been. The proposition nation fantasy is that if we all speak the same language, agree to the same political/government ideas (aka the proposition), and work together to make money –then all will be well. Wrong. The proposition nation fantasy ignores three important things: (1) genetic differences, (2) that nations originally signified a people group, not a geographical area under one government and (3) that counties have usually been based around an ethnic group/nation.
I tried to swallow my white racial consciousness and believe the proposition nation lie back when I was reading libertarian material and attending a church with an interracial couple, but two years ago I could stomach it no more and I embraced White Nationalism. This is why I wrote my ten page essay “Multiculturalism: Death of the American People” as the 28th essay of my recent little book As America Fades.
Europe has a right to remain European, just as China has right to remain Chinese and Russia has a right to remain Russian. Changing the ethnic makeup of Europe will inevitably change its culture until it is no longer Europe. The land will still be there, but the people, culture, and republican governmental traditions will be gone –perhaps forever. This also applies to the U.S.A.
Americans need to consider the 14 Words. The oft quoted 14 Words are the following: “We must secure the existence of our people, and a future for white children”.
The 14 Words do not speak of hate, slavery, genocide, or repression of any sort; they only proclaim our right to exist! The most basic right of a person, or group or people, is the right to exist. For those racially conscious, it is obvious that I slyly referenced the 14 Words in my July 4th blog post this year, showing that the Founders incorporated White Nationalist elements into the Declaration of Independence.
I am reminded of Charles Martel, which means “Charles the Hammer”. Europe was under siege from Islamic invaders in the 8th century. Not only had Islamic princes conquered much of the Middle East and west Asia, Spain had fallen to the Muslims!
The Frankish (Germanic) prince Charles Martel gathered an army to resist them. At the Battle of Poitiers in France in 732, Martel, outnumbered by perhaps 3 to 1, stopped the Muslim advance; Martel’s infantry repulsed the Islamic cavalry, inflicting massive casualties on them.
Many consider Martel’s victory the turning point in the attempted Islamic conquest of Europe. Had “The Hammer” not stopped these Muslims, they might have succeeded in conquering much of Europe –destroying much of Christianity, classical civilization, and the genetic code of our ancestors.
Europe once fought to stop the forces of invading Islamic armies. Now she opens her doors to Islamic refugees –who will accomplish the same goal given enough time.
If Europe and America do not want to allow immigrants to change their countries forever, if Europe and America have the will to survive, we are going to have to say NO. We need to remember the Founders and the 14 Words.
The Statue of Liberty and the Statute of Liberty: there is no comparison between the two.
