I first posted this in March but I post it here now again because it seems so relevant and because it was downloaded a few times just yesterday.
What we see is a cartoon that makes sense only if you really are in a dilemma about Trump v Clinton, which means you are a Republican who is too stupid to be allowed to vote. No Democrat would ever be in doubt, and Hillary is a liar, crook and dyed in the wool leftist of the most plundering kind. There is literally no facet of Trump v Clinton that ends up on the Hillary side of the ledger. Such Republicans are Democrats at heart, lacking any genuine desire for the preservation of our Western way of life. Worrying about the effect on international trade or the future viability of the Republican Party are such irrelevancies that it only irritates me to have to listen to it.
So let me spell it out. The one and only issue is open borders. This belief that anyone can migrate anywhere and it won’t make any difference of any kind is such a stupidity that I have to say that when I hear it I can only think I am dealing with political morons who are incapable of learning any lessons from the fantastic array of social instruction to be seen at every turn.
Europe at this very moment is being invaded and only a minority of these invaders are Syrian refugees with nowhere else to go. The news we get is minimal. Every so often the media is forced to cover some part of it, such as “Cologne”, or “Malmo” or “Charlie Hebdo”, but as rapidly as it is possible to go back to other things, it is dropped and nothing more is said. Were it not for Drudge, I would feel I would not know a thing about what is going on. We have in no sense a free press, and the ridicule that Trump pours on the people who are covering him warms me. It is you, who cannot see through the media attack squads that get me down. No writer for any Murdoch paper in the world – and aside from The Daily Mail, his are the best there are – will ever say a positive word about Trump. There is this migrating evil in the world, and you cannot find it in the news you read. Trump is a phenomenon because he, for very particular reasons, does not depend on the media or outside money to get his message across.
Human Events’ readers, in an online poll, recently voted billionaire financier George Soros “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.”
Here is the first on the list of ten reasons given, but go on to read the entire article. If you don’t know any of this already, you should ask yourself why that is:
1. Gives billions to left-wing causes: Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes. Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups. This partial list of recipients of Soros’ money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post,Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women.
The American political system is driven by money and Soros is hardly the only one of his class and wealth who are driving this agenda. The graft and outright thievery of Hillary Clinton is no longer even hidden. She is a tool of the progressive internationalist cause. These people really do want to ruin your way of life, and it is not incidental. This is what they want to do. If you think they are well meaning socialists who want only the best for everyone, you are simply deluded. Billionaire socialists is not how to think of a working class movement. Our Western way of life – our “white privilege” – is being put to the torch and there is hardly a one amongst us who is willing to fight this one out.
But at least there is one, and he has support, and the way things are going there will soon be more. Whether there will be enough and whether it is even still possible to save ourselves, is yet to be determined. But if you cannot see what’s going on, if you really cannot see what is going on, then you will just have to keep your heads in the sand.
And it is here that left and right meet. Let me finish with a quote from Murray Rothbard discussing Ludwig von Mises in a little booklet titled, The Clash of Group Interests. The “consideration” referred to is how individuals continue to examine only their short-term interests and fail to see the long-run as clearly as Mises does.
This consideration becomes still more poignant in the noble and surprising essay, “The Freedom to Move as an International Problem,” newly translated from a 1935 newspaper in Vienna. It is surprising because it presents a remarkably sharp attack on the immigration barriers erected by the United States and the British Dominions. For Mises trenchantly identifies these barriers as creating a ruling class elite, albeit a large one, in which workers in a particular geographical area with a high standard of living, use the State to keep immigrants from lower-wage areas out, thereby freezing the latter into a permanently lower wage. Mises correctly adds that, contrary to the Marxian myth of the international solidarity of the proletariat, it is the unions in the high living standard countries who have lobbied for the immigration restrictions. Mises is hard-hitting on the privileges conferred by immigration barriers: “The oft-referred-to ‘miracle’ of the high wages in the United States and Australia may be explained simply by the policy of trying to prevent a new immigration. For decades people have not dared to discuss these things in Europe.” Mises concludes his essay with an implicit justification of overcrowded Europe making war upon the restrictive countries: “This is a problem of the right of immigration into the largest and most productive lands…. Without the reestablishment of freedom of migration throughout the world, there can be no lasting peace.”
World peace through open borders, and cheaper labour as well. If these ideas weren’t so unbelievably dangerous you would want to laugh at how stupid this is. Soros and Mises, left and right united in trying to end the civilisation of the West.
