Neo-conservative Max Boot claims in a new Foreign Policy article that the “unspoken assumption that only white Christians are true Americans” is “ugly stuff.” He does so despite the fact that the Naturalization Act of 1790, passed by the same Founding Fathers that Boot praises for creating a propositional nation, limited citizenship to free White people of good character. Boot then quotes a truly awful Ronald Reagan speech calling for a “borderless world” and a “brotherhood of man” and assures us that anyone from anywhere can be an American if they just think the rights thoughts. America is an ideology, not blood and soil, and “fighting changing demographics” that are transforming this into a Third World country is just wrong.
The paranoid, Russian-born Jewish writer claims:
This is how the Bannons and Kings view the modern world: The West is threatened by hordes of swarthy outsiders, especially Mexicans and Muslims, and they are lonely defenders of the white Christian race against this insidious threat. There is no evidence that Trump has given this matter as much thought as they have, but, based on his public pronouncements, he has reached similar conclusions.
Boot repeatedly uses the term “White Christians” and each time you get the feeling he means it as an insult.
Does Max Boot hate White people? You bet. And he is doesn’t even try to hide it.
