Rush understands certain talents are genetically distributed. Many scientists argue this is also true of intelligence. American Hispanics have an average IQ of 89, compared to 100 for Caucasians. Some estimate that 75 percent of all IQ traits are heritable. This is not fair, but it is a fact.
As Rush might say, it’s not the schools that are failing, it’s the Chicanos. Life isn’t fair and neither is the global bell curve. Even if one rejects any genetic influence on intelligence, low Hispanic achievement is one of “the undeniable truths of life.”
As a group, they appear to lack both the genetic memory of intelligent ancestors and the desire or driving will to better themselves. Should the United States want to import millions more of them? Would a rational person want them to become the largest segment of our population? Will this country be better off when they apply their numerical weight to exercising political power?
The country as a whole will invariably suffer when more intelligent voters are replaced by less intelligent ones.
So, when will Rush make that case?
