Malice forethought

Back in December I wrote the following in regards to Somalian congresswoman Ilhan Omar:

Any society which allows rank outsiders to enter and immediately set about agitating for radical change probably won’t last very long. Any society which allows foreigners to take part in their national political process such that they attempt to overturn parts of the constitution, suppress free speech, and denounce the population as racist is engaged in a suicide pact.

Here’s Tucker Carlson a few days ago:

No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it.

There are signs that some people who move here from abroad don’t like this country at all. As we told you last night, one of those people now serves in our Congress.

Think about that for a minute. Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single poorest place on Earth. We didn’t do it for the money, we did it because we are kind people. How did she respond to the remarkable gift we gave her?

She scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It’s infuriating. More than that, it is also ominous. The United States admits more immigrants more than any other country on Earth, more than a million every year. The Democratic Party demand we increase that by and admit far more. OK, Americans like immigrants, but immigrants have got to like us back.

That’s the key, it’s essential. Otherwise, the country falls apart.

It appears Tucker has been reading my archives. Good for him. Naturally, Omar’s response was to call him racist. But he also made this very good point:

In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn’t Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans. Our cultural gatekeepers who stoke the resentment of new arrivals and turn them into grievance mongers like Ilhan Omar. The left did that to her, and to us. Blame them first.

Indeed: the real problem is not immigrants hating America, it is Americans hating America, and this can easily be extrapolated to the UK and other western countries.

  1. “The real problem is not immigrants hating America, it is Americans hating America, and this can easily be extrapolated to the UK and other western countries.”

    The Labour Party, mainly but far from exclusively.

  2. Sam Vara, the Labour Party hates Israel as well as the UK.

    Wait a minute…I see a pattern emerging.

  3. I’m glad Tucker got around to the truth at the end there. Omar is just following the adage of “when in Rome…”. In fact, she’s being a very dutiful immigrant and falling right in with the cultural norms of her host country.

    I challenge anyone reading this to find any Democrat politician that avoids despairing the US and sings praises of the Western world. I won’t hold my breath waiting.

    Pick any issue, any problem, any intractable quagmire facing the West and the problem will lie with Westerners. We have met the enemy and they are ours.

  4. Americans who hate America – or Britons who hate Britain, etc – are like teenagers who hate their parents. They’d feel very differently if they knew what life would be like without them.

  5. Democrat women like Omar are a problem — but let’s get to the root of the problem. Let’s look in the mirror.

    We the People (OK – not you & me, but you know what I mean) elected an Anti-American activist to Congress. Mostly just because she had that “D” label after her name on the ballot.

    One of the bitter lessons life teaches us as individuals when we try to help our fellow human beings is — We cannot save people from themselves. If enough of us citizens (and voting non-citizens, and voting dead people) vote for the wrong kind of candidate, the problem is not the candidate.

    Universal suffrage democracy sounded like a good idea.

  6. “Americans who hate America – or Britons who hate Britain, etc – are like teenagers who hate their parents. ”

    My theory is that many Leftists are people who have never fully left childhood – they are perpetual children, viewing the State as a parental figure to control their environment for them, as they feel unable to do so themselves.

  7. Very true Jim, just as the old adage, “It’s natural to be a socialist when young and a conservative when older” (I paraphrase), these haters have not grown up.
    Cognitive Dissonance is commonplace with adult left-wingers: anyone who has studied the outcomes of the various forms of socialism implemented since the early C20 would inevitably conclude it destroys societies and economies. Oh, and also has killed many tens of millions.

  8. That’s not quite right . It’s Americans who hate America deliberately importing foreigners who hate America as useful political allies. We didn’t turn them into that, they arrived as fully formed enemies.
