It is slowly dawning on some people that the transformation of the United States into Northern Mexico and of Europe into Eurabia is not necessarily a good thing. According to an interesting article published in the City Journal, the descendants of the Mexican underclass that cross and live illegally in the American territory, remain, what a surprise, an underclass in the new country. They lead in teenage pregnancies, school abandonment and gang affiliation. The Islamic immigrants in Europe tend to lead in rape and in welfare dependency.
In the US, Democrats tend to favor amnesty for illegals and increased immigration. It is only natural, since they are increasing their voter turnout. They are, however, very much against the patriarchy and against domestic violence. Unfortunately, the illegal Mexican immigrants and their descendants seem to be leaders in domestic violence. The more illegal immigration from Mexico there is, the more domestic violence there will be.
The same is true, incidentally, of the Muslim hordes that invade the European territory, either legally or illegally (doesn’t make that much difference in the end). There is probably no population in the world that is less concerned by “women’s rights” than Muslim populations, from their addiction to genital mutilation to the obligation to wearing veils or to being forced to marry their rapists. Rape, in fact, is also very common in this demographic group. In Norway, in a certain year, apparently 100% of rapes in the country were committed by immigrants, mostly of Muslim origin.
If the US was more like Canada, it could promote more qualified legal immigration instead of the illegal immigration of the underclass. But that’s not how the thing is seen by the authorities, who prefer cheap labor and lots of votes.
The progressive take on the matter seems to be that, by inviting these immigrants into America and Europe, they will be magically changed through education, and therefore they will eventually become progressive. It is a touching belief in the possibilities of changing the human mind. There is a risk, however, that exactly the opposite could happen, that the non-progressive view of the immigrants (at least in what regards women’s issues) could prevail and change society for the worse.
What makes a country is not its geography, not even its government or its institutions. What makes a country is its people. If you change the people through massive immigration, you cannot be surprised that the country changes too. That so many intelligent men are incapable of grasping such an obvious fact is one of the great mysteries of the contemporary age, one that will keep the Historians of the future occupied for decades.
