“The Union is dissolved. By the fist of South Carolina, it will be amongst the wrecks of past things. . . The long weary night of our humiliation, oppression and danger is passing away, and the glorious dawn of a Southern Confederacy breaks on our view.”
– Robert Barnwell Rhett, 1860
Pat Buchanan writes:
“That book and chapter proved the proximate cause of my departure from MSNBC, where the network president declared that subjects such as these are inappropriate for “the national dialogue.”
Apparently, the mainstream media are reassessing that.
For, in rare unanimity, The New York Times, The Washington Post and USA Today all led yesterday with the same story.
“Whites Account for Under Half of Births in U.S.,” blared the Times headline. “Minority Babies Majority in U.S.,” echoed the Post. “Minorities Are Now a Majority of Births,” proclaimed USA Today.
The USA Today story continued, “The nation’s growing diversity has huge implications for education, economics and politics.”
Huge is right.”
If the GOP is doomed as a national governing institution because of changing demographics, it follows that the South will permanently lose control of the White House and Supreme Court.
The MSM assumes there will be huge demographic changes in America that will work to the advantage of the Democratic Party, but no corresponding changes in the composition the Union.
Remember the debt ceiling debate? If the Union becomes an economic death sentence for the states, it is not far fetched to imagine that one day a group of states might decide to dissolve the Union.
