A Nation of Immigrants — White Immigrants
POLITICIANS obsessively refer to America as a “nation of immigrants.” The “nation of immigrants” catchphrase is as misleading as the related slogan “America was founded on diversity.” Until 1965, American immigration laws explicitly protected America from diversity. And that was when the U.S. really was great.
Three elements comprise ethnic identity: race, language and religion. Language and religion are fickle, as anyone can learn a new language or change religions—although belief systems and methods of communications may be genetically (racially) predisposed to a large extent. Which brings us back to the true measure of ethnic identity—race.
According to the writings of Benjamin Franklin, the British-American colonies were comprised of three ethnic groups of approximately equal size: English, German, and Irish. Let’s take a close look at these “ethnic groups” and measure their diversity.
In early European history southern Germany was inhabited by Celts with German tribes in the north. The Germans migrated south and dominated southern Germany. They intermarried.
Britain was originally inhabited by a Mediterranean-derived White people who had adopted Celtic culture and assimilated with Celts. Two German tribes, the Angles and Saxons, migrated to and then dominated Britain. They assimilated with the Celts. The Romans also left their mark. Later, another Teutonic group, the Normans, moved into the British Isles, passing through and ruling Normandy along the way. They also assimilated with resident Aryan groups.
At the time of the revolution, English and Germans were Germanic-Celtic people, speaking Germanic languages and practicing Christianity, which had been developed — with the addition of many pagan customs — into uniquely White religion in its European territories, despite its ancient Semitic origins.
The Irish were Celts. A tribe of Gaelic Celts had migrated to and dominated Ireland as German tribes had dominated Southern Germany and England. For 500 years Vikings — Germanic (Teutonic) groups — held coastal cities, where they assimilated with native Celts. Later, the Normans invaded Ireland, dominated her, and assimilated with the Irish. At the time of the American Revolution, the Irish were Celtic-Teutonic peoples who spoke the Germanic language English.
The American colonists were, culturally and genetically, virtually clones of these groups. A group of northwestern European peoples, quite isolated from other racial groups for many centuries. They had been spared the invasion of the Ottoman Turks, the North African Moors, and conquest by Huns, Mongols and Tartars. And although the vast majority of Europeans retained their racial integrity, the American colonists came largely from the unusually isolated northwestern sector of Europe which gave them unique genetic qualities — largely praiseworthy ones, but with, unfortunately little inborn or acquired talent for dealing with aliens, particularly shrewd and clever aliens. And now — unlike in Old Europe — they were not isolated from other racial groups.
A large percentage of the Amerinidian population had already died from diseases involuntarily introduced by Europeans, but a significant population remained and competed for territory. The percentage of Whites willing to mate with the natives was small but still created a genetically dangerous class of half-breeds who were less ‘different’ and hence more likely to find White mates or ‘pass’ as White, further diluting the gene pool.
African slaves had been imported as cheap labor. Though segregated, miscegenation from slave masters breeding with Negro women, and in rare cases free Blacks hiring and marrying poor White indentured servants, threatened racial purity.
President Theodore Roosevelt blamed the importation of Negro slaves on the greed of the English aristocracy, who, like all recent Presidents, were more interested in profits gained from cheap labor than the long-term stability of our civilization. Roosevelt claimed that under self-rule the American colonists would never have permitted the importation of Negro slaves. His argument is endorsed by the behavior of the colonists after the revolution.
After the American Revolution, northern states, which were not heavily influenced by the lobby of industrial planters (the aristocracy of the South), immediately began outlawing the slave trade. In the main, prior to the ascent of religious ‘equality’ maniacs, they did not outlaw ownership of slaves. They did not vote to free the slaves. They simply outlawed the importation of Negro slaves into their states. So, where’s the “diversity”?
Then, the European-Americans pushed the Amerindians from areas of White settlement. By 1825 the Creek Indians had been removed from Georgia. In 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act. In 1838 the U.S. Army conquered the Cherokees in Georgia and literally marched tens of thousands of them along “The Trail of Tears” from the Eastern seaboard to detainment camps (reservations) in Oklahoma. By the late 1800s a “mop up” effort known as the Indian Wars completed the segregation of Indian tribes from European American communities. See any “diversity” yet?
The next racial threat was the migration of Chinese coolies, who were invited by greedy industrialists to build railroads. At first, the Chinese were not too visible to the general population of White Americans, but when they formed communities and began claiming land, jobs and resources, the European-Americans elected officials who enacted laws that sent most of them back to Asia and prohibited their immigration to the U.S.
The very first Congress passed the Naturalization Act of 1790, which employed explicitly racial criteria limiting citizenship to Whites only. This was effectively challenged on behalf of Blacks after the Civil War, but continued to be applied in all other cases until 1952. The Asian Exclusion Acts included a sequence of laws from 1882 to 1934, denying citizenship and immigration rights to non-Whites, and specifically targeted Chinese, Japanese, Indians, and Filipinos. In the 1920s, the immigration laws were tightened with the “National Origins” quota requirements, limiting the percentage of immigrants from any one country to the percentage of the U.S. population in 1920 from that country already in the U.S. — ensuring thereby that the racial character of the U.S. would not change due to immigration. (This law was in force until the Jews and ‘liberals’ repealed it in 1965.) See any laws promoting “diversity” yet?
Irish refugees from the potato famine flooded into America during the mid 1800s. Because of their desperate condition and their (then slightly unusual) religion, they were not welcomed at first. However, having a common racial identity with other Americans, they quickly assimilated and were recognized as fellow White Americans.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s civil wars and natural disaster sent a flood of immigrants from southern Italy and Sicily to the U.S. Some were farmers who returned to Italy after earning enough money to buy property in the “old country,” but many stayed. Like the Irish, immigration laws did not bar them from migrating and becoming citizens because they were White. The language barrier and their Catholic religion inspired some cultural opposition, but soon Italian craftsmen were building new monuments in neo-classical Washington, DC and Italians were taking their place in the cultural panoply of White America.
Anyone spot that nurturing American “diversity” yet? Here ya go.
The Fall from Grace
In 1965, at the urging of Jewish groups and led by Jewish Congressman Emanuel Celler and his Gentile partner Edward Kennedy, Congress passed the Immigration Act, which eliminated quotas based on “national origin.” Immigration laws have gone downhill since then.
This opened the floodgates that have turned much of America into a province of the Third World. Readers over 40 probably remember living in an America that was over 90 per cent. White — but younger readers may have a hard time even imagining it. By the 1970s, the dark stain was really starting to show.
And this has had economic consequences, too. By 1972 the per-capita income of working Americans began to fall consistently when adjusted for inflation. From 1972 to 1992 it had fallen by 20 per cent. It’s still falling.
Where will it end? Look at Mexico City or Port-au-Prince or Bombay for the multiracialists’ answer. Look at the Old America — look at the unspoiled White communities that still exist in a few places here and in Europe — and look at yourself in the mirror — for our answer.
