Future generations may look back on Iraq and immigration as the two great disasters of the Bush presidency. Ironically, for a conservative administration, both of these policy initiatives were rooted in a multicultural view of the world.
Not sure how Iraq = “multiculturalism”; sounds like exactly the opposite:
What, then, are the implications for a foreign policy based on the doctrine that “These values of freedom are right and true for every person, in every society”? The Bush administration has staked huge human, financial, diplomatic, and prestige resources on this doctrine’s applicability in Iraq. It is now apparent that the doctrine is fallacious.
So I don’t have 100% confidence in the rest of this fellow’s conclusions, but he is great on the immigration side (of course, I’m a “racist” so…)
Again, culture matters – race doesn’t. The ethnic roots of both Haiti and Barbados lie in the Dahomey region of West Africa. The history of Haiti, independent in 1804 in the wake of a slave uprising against the French colonists, is one of corrupt, incompetent leadership; illiteracy; and poverty. Barbados, which gained its independence from the British in 1966, is today a prosperous democracy of “Afro-Saxons.”
In “The Americano Dream,” Mexican-American Lionel Sosa argues that the value system that has retarded progress in Latin America is an impediment to upward mobility of Latino immigrants. So does former US Rep. Herman Badillo, a Puerto Rican whose book, “One Nation, One Standard,” indicts Latino undervaluing of education and calls for cultural change.
This Tufts professor says all the things I’m regularly castigated for saying: that some groups value education and hard work more than others; that the sheer volume of Latinos means they won’t assimilate the way early 20th century immigrants had to (because earlier immigrants were bullied/mocked into doing so, and we don’t allow that any more).
And it is in the Christian Science Monitor, not a Stormfront newsletter.
Don’t you ever get tired of being wrong?
