So it was in 1965 when the Immigration and Nationality Act effectively opened the nation's borders to hordes of humans bent on imbibing in the blessings of America without contributing to our culture or the national treasury.
I was twelve years old at the time and, even though I was pre-occupied with throwing a basketball at the hoop (sometimes it actually went in), my conservative political views were well formed. This was an America that was 90 percent white, yet rejected Barry Goldwater for the pessimism of the lanky liberal Lyndon Johnson.
When Johnson's co-hort, Ted Kennedy, scoffed at accusations that his immigration reform would turn America brown, he was believed. Not that it mattered. Most white Americans -- my young self included -- were wholly unaware of what was going down in the nation's capital.
The day after the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 took effect there were no earthquakes, plagues of locusts, or other biblical-proportioned events to indicate that God's grace was no longer being shed on thee. The sun rose, people went to work, the Beach Boys resonated from our little hand-held transistor radios. There was no warning whatsoever of the impending tsunami. It was just another, forgettable day.
So it was in 2013 when Eric Holder's Department of Justice determined to enforce draconian new policies unilaterally enacted by The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Doug Mckelway told us about it back in August. Like the 1965 immigration shift, few paid much attention.
"In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering," he wrote, "the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change [i.e., "punish"] those it deems discriminatory."
In other words, if your neighborhood is too white it will face the wrath of the federal government.
"The policy is called, 'Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing,'" he explained. "It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it." Emphasis added.
The policy was unveiled at July's NAACP convention.
|Whitetopians want nothing more than|
to live in peace, keep their lawns tidy,
and vote Republican.
The HUD-Holder Marxist coalition
pretends that's racist and is imposing
black crime on America's Whitetopias.
Mckelway goes on to explain how HUD is already punishing communities that resist invasion. Federal law allows private, non-profit organizations with an activist-Marxist agenda to remedy "segregation and discrimination" by filing federal lawsuits against white communities. Sunnyvale, Texas is one of many examples.
By locking out America's criminal element, the liberal logic flows, Whitetopia is intentionally withholding fair housing opportunities from non-whites. HUD's dictates will not only expose safe havens from violent crime, it will saturate red congressional districts with enough blue voters to forever alter the winds in Washington to blow consistently leftward.
It is inevitable. There is no turning back.
The debate in 1968, the year Kennedy's immigration act took effect, was over the communist invasion in South Viet Nam. America's impending cultural shift was on no one's radar. Now it is abundantly evident. It is also too late. Today's white community would never tolerate the lunacy of Lyndon Johnson. It matters little, however, as the founding culture that brought unprecedented innovation to human civilization has been marginalized and rendered ineffective.
The Holder-HUD invasion is driven by the leftist white minority. By forming a coalition with clueless non-white liberals delighted to be sticking it to whitey, the process of displacing Western culture with a Marixist agenda is proceeding exponentially and unabated.
Aside from a few activists on the right, no one seems to be noticing.
Paul Kersey was one of the few who took note. He expressed his musing on VDare.com.
Kersey explains the freedom of association and restrictive covenants were never intended to discriminate against non-whites. Rather, their purpose was to protect property values.
The invasion of black crime into a white neighborhoods has its economic consequences. It also has direct impact through pain, suffering, and all-to-often death as black thugs vent their pretense of justice-for-centuries-of-slavery-and-Jim-Crow on white neighbors who want nothing more than to live in peace and keep their lawns tidy.
More recently Kersey offered an excellent article revealing the efforts of one community in Mississippi to block black crime by literally closing roads that connect the town of Clinton with the Marxist mayhem of the black-crime infested city of Jackson.
The well-intended notion of gated communities and walled cities will have no effect in an America governed by proxy via HUD and the Department of Justice. Thick walls and tall fences won't prevent activists lawyers from delivering lawsuits that will impose punitive fines on and federal dollars withheld from the few communities intent on remaining crime free, safe, and clean.
While the mayor of Clinton, MS is busy wall building, the Republican mayor of Indianapolis has purposed to relieve his city's growing black crime dilemma by building a transit system that will, effectively, bus the criminals to the northern suburbs of Carmel, Fishers, and Noblesville.
Meanwhile we pretend the problem of black crime does not exist lest we be labeled 'racists'.
Conservatives, however, (both white and non-white) understand it has nothing to do with race. To paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr., it's not content of melanin, but content of character.
