What’s the old saying?
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Ever since the Baby Boomer generation, most White Americans have become naive, deracinated expressive individualists who live purely in the present in their consumer society which is in an advanced state of degeneration. In contrast, millions of people in the Third World are still living in poverty and nursing any number of historical grievances against modern day Westerners.
I’m referring to people like this guy.
“There is a lot of debate these days about whether the United States owes its African-American citizens reparations for slavery. It does. But there is a far bigger bill that the United States and Europe have run up: what they owe to other countries for their colonial adventures, for the wars they imposed on them, for the inequality they have built into the world order, for the excess carbon they have dumped into the atmosphere.
The creditor countries aren’t seriously suggesting that the West send sacks of gold bullion every year to India or Nigeria. Their people are asking for fairness: for the borders of the rich countries to be opened to goods and people, to Indian textiles as well as Nigerian doctors. In seeking to move, they are asking for immigration as reparations.
Today, a quarter of a billion people are migrants. They are moving because the rich countries have stolen the future of the poor countries. Whether it is Iraqis and Syrians fleeing the effects of illegal American wars, or Africans seeking to work for their former European colonial masters, or Guatemalans and Hondurans trying to get into the country that peddles them guns and buys their drugs: They are coming here because we were there.
Before you ask them to respect our borders, ask yourself: Has the West ever respected anyone’s borders? …”
Suketu Mehta is the author of “This Land is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto.” The article has a tone dripping with contempt and essentially says that the Third World is coming to colonize the West in much the same way that the Europeans colonized and displaced the American Indians.
There is one big problem with this article: we live in the 21st century and no one who is alive today who is a White Millennial has ever been a slaveowner. No White Millennial has ever lived under segregation. No White Millennial has ever fought the Indians to conquer the West. No White Millennial has ever colonized the Third World. It was naively assumed by our liberal establishment that all these historical grievances had been resolved and as a society we had “progressed” beyond that. WRONG!
According to Suketu Mehta, it is time for the West to pay up, which is to say, it is time for White Millennials and Zoomers and their children and grandchildren to shoulder the burden of being displaced from their own lands by a neverending tidal wave of Third World immigrants.
What should our response to that be? There will be SJWs on the Left who will agree with Mehta that the West is guilty of all these crimes and that social justice requires us to shoulder the burden of this neverending tidal wave of Third World immigration. Similarly, there will be other Millennials and Zoomers who will respond to that sort of argument by rejecting White guilt and shrugging off liberalism. They will conclude that justice actually requires us to protect those closest to us who are own children and grandchildren from a menacing threat that has a racial axe to grind against us.
If you want to understand why right leaning White Millennials and Zoomers are becoming radicalized and rejecting liberalism and turning to fascism, then all you have to do is read The New York Times because the answer is published there in its pages on a daily basis. We’re sick and tired of being lectured about “racism” by people who publish anti-White articles like this one.
Note: The failure of utopian experiments in multiculturalism and multiracialism is a recurring theme in American history from the time of King Philip’s War to Reconstruction.
