• Great Replacement Conspiracy Theory?

    From Boraxman@MSRDBBS to All on Friday, May 20, 2022 20:30:45
    I've heard a lot from the US media about this "Great Replacement Conspiracy Theory", but I'm unsure what exactly the "Conspiracy" part is.

    I thought it was common knowledge that the West is becoming more diverse, and people have openly stated, UNOPPOSED, that in the future we'll all be mixed. No one is suggesting this should happen in China, or Uganda, or Korea or Nigeria, nor is anyone saying that we should stop becoming more diverse.

    It sounds like the argument against this theory is sophistry, that because of some "technicality" the claim isn't 100% true therefore is false, but this is like saying that claims the Earth is round is a conspiracy because technically speaking, the Earth isn't a sphere.

    How is something, which is easily observed, now a "conspiracy theory"? If the argument is that this result isn't due to a conspiracy, then how is it that agreement on this outcome doesn't qualify?

    Well, you know, anything that is not acceptable from the point of view of the official versions is automatically labeled as a copsiracy even if it is not a conspiracy (ie. if it is the doing of a single person it cannot be a conspiracy).

    people literally say white people need to go. white people are evil.
    and then they say jews are not white people.

    when white people complain about this, it's called a conspiracy theory.

    It seems that by adding the "Jews" to it, the media is able to take something that is happening and turn it into a conspiracy. It's a clever trick.

    You can take anything that is actually happening, tack on the end of it "some people believe this is deliberate done by *insert scapegoat group*" and make people think the entire thing is bunk.

    But I have seen exactly what you said, many, many, many times over my years. People openly saying white people need to go, that it would be great when white people are gone. Just two weeks ago was the last time. Even Joe Biden himself said that Whites would be a minority in the US, and that is a good thing.

    I've been all through Western Europe. I've been to London, Paris, Brussels, Marseilled, and observation doesn't lie. I was at a carnvial in Brussels and I swear my wife and I were almost the only Europeans there.

    From my understanding, is people have seen this, noted the immigration policies which have caused it, noted that anyone who suggests this is not a desirable outcast is called a racist, noted that there is considered to be unacceptable to prevent this change, and concluded there is a replacement going on.

    I can't really find fault with this reasoning. I *can* find fault with the idea that it is specifically promoted by a very specific cabal, but really, that is almost immaterial anyway.

    We'll see more violence in the future I think, because it is very hard to tell people something they can *see* is happening, is not actually happening.

    I've heard a lot from the US media about this "Great Replacement Conspiracy Theory", but I'm unsure what exactly the "Conspiracy" part is.

    Aside from local news and some articles I read online, I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to US media. Your post is the first I've heard about this great replacement conspiracy theory (and I live in the US).

    It's sad to see that this is a thing. :(

    I thought it was common knowledge that the West is becoming more diverse, and people have openly stated, UNOPPOSED, that in the future we'll all be mixed.

    I had always thought this as well. And the US is supposed to be a melting pot. The poem on the Sttaue of Liberty says "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses...."

    The odd thing is, I've noticed many people tend to spend time with people of their own ethnic background more often than not. One example is that I see very few interracial couples.

    This great replacement conspiracy theory is a bit extreme..

    you have not paid attention to the us media. that's why.

    I had always thought this as well. And the US is supposed to be a melting pot. The poem on the Sttaue of Liberty says "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses...."


    my family are immigrants. you aren't supposed to TAKE over with your culture. people had to change their last names and adopt different ways. that was always the way.


    The odd thing is, I've noticed many people tend to spend time with people of their own ethnic background more often than not. One example is that I see very few interracial couples.

    hispanics do this. they rarely learn english. they drive without drivers licenses. they work for cash sometimes. they don't pay taxes sometimes. they party with eachother. they created their own little world in america where they live.

    How is something, which is easily observed, now a "conspiracy theory"? If the
    argument is that this result isn't due to a conspiracy, then how is it that agreement on this outcome doesn't qualify?

    I think that Arelor hit the nail on the head.

    What I will say about it is that there are many here in the US who will
    claim it is a conspiracy theory in the sense that some believe the
    government, or others, are doing things to cause it or to help speed it
    along. They will claim it is a conspiracy theory because they believe that government/organizational/inorganic involvement is false.

    Thing is, it is not 100% false. I cannot say for certain that the
    government is doing so because I do not have any knowledge of that. But I
    do know someone who works for a religious charity who, at least before
    COVID, was indeed involved in actively traveling to Central American
    countries (that are supposedly super dangerous but, if they were, I don't honestly think they'd go) to assist/encourage persons with aspirations of entering the United States to do so by coaching them on what to say and do
    to get here, and then waiting at the boarder for persons they've coached to arrive.

    The charity is doing so, I believe, in order to help encourage more people
    to join their church in the US. As these are mostly Catholic-dominated countries the people are coming from, I am not sure how that works since
    that is not the religion of the charity. I assume they are hoping that
    these people will convert.

    The person who is working for the charity may be doing so for religious reasons, but I can also 100% guarantee that this person would not be doing
    so if they believed there was any chance at all that the people who are
    coming would, if they ever become citizens, be prone to vote for
    Republicans as that would 100% go against their own political convictions.

    So, there are oganizations that are indeed actively bringing persons into
    the country in hopes that they will replace other religions, and there are
    at least some persons who are working with them in hopes that the persons
    will replace other political beliefs.

    So, although some of what the people who believe replacement theory is an active thing might believe may be 100% untrue, the theory itself is not 100%
    a conspiracy no matter who claims it is.

    Interesting points. I've been wondering if there is anyone profititing off
    of social justice and the concepts of white guilt/ white shaming. My
    mother's family came over from what is now Poland during the Russian
    Revolution in 1917. My father's relatives came over from Ireland and the Ukraine well after slavery was abolished. I cannot see how anyone can try to guilt me for the actions my families had nothing to do with. I was born in 1969. I cannot be declared guilty of rascism or bigotry that occurred before
    I was born. I can agree it wasn't fair. That is all.

    I don't think it is untrue. It has been stated publically, multiple times that we are a melting pot and where this leads, and it is simultaneusly considered unacceptable to advocate or in anyway act in a way which might prevent this. (for example, asking to limit immigration in order not to be replaced).

    This is from my understanding the origin of this idea, that there is an overly zealous immigration policy which would result in effective replacement over the decades in the Western countries that it is occuring for which it is considered inappropriate to oppose, and that all Western nations are expected to be on board with.

    I would think that as time goes on, people are going to interpret this as an existential threat, and see more extreme measures to stop it as justified.

    Reminds me of hearing every couple of years about folks in Dearborn, MI trying to establish Sharia law within certain neighborhoods. People migrated over here to avoid that stuff, and now th egeneration that didn't grow up
    under it thinks it is a good thing. It doesn't bring the law. It does legitimize some levels of state sanctioned violence and criminal behavior. By state I mean the religious state.


    the woman i live with is arab and when we go to her home town in illinois it's like going into another dimension. all of a sudden all the stores, the people in the cars and how everything looks is 100% arab.

    the media is doing a great job telling people what to think. when they see som
    hing they tell them 'no, you didn't see that'. let politifact tell you how it
    out of context.

    Like talking about the "mostly peaceful protests" while standing in front
    of a property that is on fire, or while standing near a mob that is
    trending towards the unruly side.


    they tried that shit in my town. they were trying to burn down the walgreen stores. i drove by a car that had flames that were like 15 feet in the air.
    they were blocking people from going to work, attacking people and burning down houses with elderly people and children in them.

    The news was saying the mostly peaceful protest BS and calling everyone protesters even if they tried to murder someone.

    then they tried to say the day protesters weren't the same as the night ones. my ass they werent.

    You bet.

    The Ministry of Equalty in Spain is burning through more money than the Welfare one, while the Socialized Welfare system is clearly overloaded beyond its capabilities.

    However, the Welfare Ministry produces tanglible results (ie. you see Hospitals with Doctors and Nurses working in them). Meanwhile the Equalty Ministry produces a couple of parades per year?

    My hipothesis is they are getting a whole load of budgetary money with the excuse of running diversity programs and then just pocketing the money. THere is the profit you are wondering about.

    From my understanding, is people have seen this, noted the immigration policie
    which have caused it, noted that anyone who suggests this is not a desirab outcast is called a racist, noted that there is considered to be unaccepta to prevent this change, and concluded there is a replacement going on.

    You don't really even have to note that it is an undesirable situation.
    Just noting that certain immigration policies have caused/contributed to it, unless you are celebrating it, is often enough to get you labeled.

    It HAS to be policy.

    When I used to work at a computer repair shop, we would get in this guy who started a firm that recieved state money to invest in re-training people who lost their jobs due to an injury, but were still capable of working in other fields. Instead of putting them on disability pay, this meant transitioning physical laborers into office type work that allows for lifting restrictions o r other mild disabilities. This was around 1997, and he would get $2500usd
    to invest in each client he took in. Some of these clients were enrolled in classes at the junior college or another local place that dealt mainly with boot camps to acquire certifactions. He'd come in and buy our lower spec computers as a means to get the client online to take computer based training courses and get used to office apps and CAD/ CAM apps.

    It all sounded pretty noble, but when no one else was around, the way he
    talked it sounded more like a con job. They would give out funding, and my gu ess is he figured out a way to stay compliant while pocketing any money not spent. I got the impression that job placement was a guarantee. It was more about moving people through the system. Some of these people moved on into jobs at places trying to place displaced workers, while others had other strikes against them regarding personality, learning ability, or attitude.
    For example, when I moved on to IT contracting, I was on a multi-site desktop standardization project, and we would occasionally lose people due to poor performance or ill fit for the job. One of the new guys brought in we recognized as one of the rehab clients. He was in his early 20's,
    originally came from construction field until he fell off a roof. He could work within our lifting requirements and was computer literate to a point.
    We were not only pulling out old desktops and installing new ones. We would have to migrate their documents folders, mail settings, and .ini files and oth er configuration files dependent on software they had, and reinstall non-standard apps. Anyways, the guy supposedly knew this stuff, and even afte r walking through the process several times with him, he needed extra hand holding and would leave out steps in the checklist we had designed to make
    sure or processes were consistent. While it wasn't intentional, he came off
    as being disrespectful to the other techs, implying we get paid for doing nothing. He lasted 3 days and was told not to show up the next day at end of shift. It made me wonder how many other clients weren't successful in the re-training process? Some may have had head injuries which should have have put them on disability.

    I've known many business owners who had to deal with this. Hiring quotas were a completely stupid idea. If the business owner needs a person with <skill> but the the only person who has that skill has the "wrong" skin color, he not only has to hire the person with <skill> but a token person with the "right" skin color to maintain the quota. This raises his costs. He needs to cut them in some other way - so other, not as necessary, people need to go. And that's usually going to be in the low skill category.

    It has nothing to do with "status".

    Now I'm not saying that there isn't any descrimination out there, but business that descriminate in hiring usually don't stay in business very long.

    Diversity training is supposed to open people's eyes to
    recognize there is no single race or gender that corners the market on
    any skill,

    "Diversity training" is nothing of the sort. It's about treating people UNEQUALLY.

    Remember that Leftie policies ALWAYS do the opposite of what they claim they will.

    however on the management side the message coming from HR is
    hire the most diverse person even if they aren't the best qualified. Imagine if a basketball team was required to adhere to these rules?

    Ya, I'm still waiting for that to happen. Especially now that they have gone completely Woke. I just wonder how low their ratings can get.

    I think that may be true for some ethnic groups but not for others.

    Certain cultures actively discourage their members from getting away from the mothership. I have a gypsy customer who wanted to open a store in a non gypsy area and his clan fell on him like a ton of bricks for daring thinking of that. He was eventually offered in an arranged marriage to set an alliance with another clan.

    Halal and Kosher are ideas which seem to me engineered so members of their asociated cultures don t buy food from outsiders to that culture.

    Most Eastern Europeans seem to mix well with natives. I have an Ukranian customer (actually, she is from the Donbas area and considers herself to be Russian) who has adapted perfectly, as well as some Romanian teachers of mine and some Hungarian workers I know. Muslim immigrants, on the other hand, tend to stay more tightly within their cultural pockets and seem to despise the Western culture as weak. My experience is that even 2nd or further generations tend not to take Western culture very seriously (and if political discussion regarding some conflic comes up, they always side with muslim-like countries).

    I take issue with the implied idea that health services underperform on purpose in order to make more money.

    Newsflash: the largest customers of hospitalary corporations are insurance companies.

    Insurance companies bleed a lot of money if people gets sick.

    Doctors get kicked out of teams if they don t get results. Insurance companies press a lot in order to get cases _solved_ instead of having people sent to the hospital twenty times for no actual solution.

    Insurance institutions have many faults, but the incentive is not to keep buying treatments for a single patient time and again and again and again.

    I don't think it is untrue. It has been stated publically, multiple times tha
    we are a melting pot and where this leads, and it is simultaneusly considered unacceptable to advocate or in anyway act in a way which might prevent this. (for example, asking to limit immigration in order not to be replaced).

    That part is certainly not untrue.

    This is from my understanding the origin of this idea, that there is an overly
    zealous immigration policy which would result in effective replacement over th
    decades in the Western countries that it is occuring for which it is considere
    inappropriate to oppose, and that all Western nations are expected to be on board with.

    This part is the part that (usually, in the US, left-leaning) people claim
    is untrue... that there is any government policies that are causing or excellerating the effective replacement. I am not certain that it is
    untrue, either, but that is definately something where pointing out the possibility that it is true will certainly get you labeled as imappropriate.

    I would think that as time goes on, people are going to interpret this as an existential threat, and see more extreme measures to stop it as justified.

    I think that has started happening some already.

    Only deliberate genocide and acts of ethnic cleansing have in the past produce

    Yes, this is true.

    A few years ago, when there was a huge migration from Africa and the Middle East, some of the "newer" western countries (those formerly a part of the
    Iron Curtain) were upset with the EU because it was EU policy that their countries must take in their fair percentage of migrants. IIRC, Hungary
    was one of the countries that was not happy with this.

    In the US, it seemed to be known that it was a policy, and it was
    inappropriate to insinuate that a country should have rights to determine whether or not they conform to such policies.

    Similarly, the US over the years has changed how they handle immigration, softening the way that people of certain national origins can get in (cross
    the southern border, shout "asylum!") while keeping it difficult for
    persons from other nations.

    The odd thing is, I've noticed many people tend to spend time with

    is that I see very few interracial couples.

    Where do you live? I have noticed that such couples are more common with younger people.

    some were violent during the day. in my home down there were bricks dropped off for people to use during the daytime protests but nobody bit.

    people are more likely to do something in the dark. they had people on video at protests who were later rioting. they had some people that burnt down a community firehouse who were at both.

    i knew of people who went to the day protests and then went to the night riots. people with green and purple hair.

    I've noticed when new Indian employees start, their first question is where
    do all the other Indian people live in the area? I attribute this to them being homesick, or they're more comfortable with people who share history or culture.

    My grandparents are from Southern Europe, yet increasingly I'm being conside as part of the evil colonisers. Why? Because I'm considered to be European and therefore part of the problem.

    I've wondered two what the benefit is, why there is such a push for social justice and white guilt. It does benefit some who stand to earn a lot of mo as Diversity consultants, and to get paid to speak about racism, but that ca by why this idea started.

    But why Western nations decided that the melting pot is the model, and to decide this with such certainty, to the point where anyone questioning was n just of a different opinion, but morally wrong, that is strange. It seems o of those beliefs which everyone is adamant about, but just doesn't seem to h a reasoning which justifies the adamant attitude.

    it's own speed, someone was denied a job because of their status regardless. Diversity training is supposed to open people's eyes to recognize there is no single race or gender that corners the market on
    any skill, however on the management side the message coming from HR is hire the most diverse person even if they aren't the best qualified. Imagine if a basketball team was required to adhere to these rules?

    I don't think it is about oppression, or the need to put others down. This idea was never thought out in the first place and was a bad idea from the start.

    Quotas MUST discriminate. Pushing for diversity MUST discriminate racially. There is no other way around it, never was. The problem is that you couldn't criticise these measures, so no one thought about the ramifications because thinking about the implications of this was forbidden.

    Just the idea that someone is more 'diverse' than another is beyond silly. This is LITERALLY Racism, scoring people based on their race. All around companies are doing this for diversity metrics, ranking people on race just like the Third Reich was doing. Let me repeat, it is common practice in the West to literally rate the value of people based on their race, and this is done by people who say they are socially progressive.

    I learned over 20 years ago that this is was identity politics, and just a ploy to attack or diminish one group over an other.

    I don't think it is untrue. It has been stated publically, multiple times
    tha

    we are a melting pot and where this leads, and it is simultaneusly
    considered
    unacceptable to advocate or in anyway act in a way which might prevent this. (for example, asking to limit immigration in order not to be replaced).

    That part is certainly not untrue.

    This is from my understanding the origin of this idea, that there is an
    overly

    zealous immigration policy which would result in effective replacement over
    th

    decades in the Western countries that it is occuring for which it is
    considere

    inappropriate to oppose, and that all Western nations are expected to be on board with.

    This part is the part that (usually, in the US, left-leaning) people
    claim is untrue... that there is any government policies that are
    causing or excellerating the effective replacement. I am not certain
    that it is untrue, either, but that is definately something where
    pointing out the possibility that it is true will certainly get you labeled as imappropriate.

    I would think that as time goes on, people are going to interpret this as an existential threat, and see more extreme measures to stop it as justified.

    I think that has started happening some already.

    \
    In Australia, it is easier to get a Visa (and cheaper) if you come from Asia instead of Europe. We get to choose who comes and there was a deliberate change in immigration policy in both Australia and the US. In the US it was the 1965 Immigration Act, in Australia, the removal of a similar policy a little later.

    I think people knew the social change that would be brought about from changing these policies, because no politician has admitted the consequences were unforesseen, or these changes should be reversed as a result. It has always been discussed as if these changes should happen, and are part of the march of history.

    There is indeed pressure on other Western countries to follow suit, so one can see how conspiratorial explanations develop. If the powers that be want to destroy belief in this Conspiracy Theory then they should explain how replacement CAN'T happen and what means they are willing to consider to stop it.

    It HAS to be policy. For centuries, literally centuries these European
    cities

    were comprised of people descended from that region, with some cross
    movement
    between nearby areas, and then *BAM*, centuries of demographic history is upturned, in historical terms suddenly and clearly with foreknowledge.
    There
    is no precendent except for times of actual genocide and ethnic cleansing.

    Only deliberate genocide and acts of ethnic cleansing have in the past
    produce

    these results.

    Yes, this is true.

    A few years ago, when there was a huge migration from Africa and the Middle East, some of the "newer" western countries (those formerly a
    part of the Iron Curtain) were upset with the EU because it was EU
    policy that their countries must take in their fair percentage of migrants. IIRC, Hungary was one of the countries that was not happy
    with this.

    In the US, it seemed to be known that it was a policy, and it was inappropriate to insinuate that a country should have rights to
    determine whether or not they conform to such policies.

    Similarly, the US over the years has changed how they handle
    immigration, softening the way that people of certain national origins
    can get in (cross the southern border, shout "asylum!") while keeping
    it difficult for persons from other nations.

    There quite quite definately an expectation that as member of the EU, you would be an open society. This has been stated more explicitely by US officials about Europe. Any European country wanting to avoid demographic replacement would be considered a pariah.

    This probably explains in part the rise of populism and the far right, as they are the ones addressing this issue and offering solutions. It is a bit like climate change, you can't complain about people voting for more extreme parties who are promising to do something about the problem, when you yourself insist on business as usual.

    arab.

    If you were to check the people there, most are probably not born in
    the U.S. or are first generation.

    Over time (sometimes generations), this type of thing fades.

    In the large city near me, there are areas that are heavily korean, for example. They have stored that cater to korean food and have people
    who offer services that speak korean.

    The next generation, though, will speak english fluently and won't need those services. Ethnic food that is popular will start being sold in
    the "normal" grocery stores, and the specity food stores will not be needed.

    It may take a generation or 2, but those highly ethnic concentrated
    areas will simply fade away.

    In practice, the "ethnic" areas end up changing hands to another group. Australia has very high immigration rates, per capita, higher than the US. These concentrated areas are growing, overall. If you go to Melbourne city centre, it is very Asian in flavour with most shopfronts catering to this demographic.

    Hispanic culture is partly at fault. But for the kids to grow they need good education (which the Left and their fathers don't want) plus business opportunities - which the Left keeps down.

    well i'm in the area where the kyle rittenhouse shit went down.

    there were outside groups driving here in unmarked fans full of 'supplies'. people all the way from seattle went there to 'feed protesters' but they had generators, illegal fireworks and filled up multiple fuel cans which was suspicious. since kenosha was burning down those fuel cans would have came in handy for 'protesters'

    they wanted riots day and night.

    My grandparents are from Southern Europe, yet increasingly I'm being cons as part of the evil colonisers. Why? Because I'm considered to be Europ and therefore part of the problem.

    I've wondered two what the benefit is, why there is such a push for socia justice and white guilt. It does benefit some who stand to earn a lot of as Diversity consultants, and to get paid to speak about racism, but that by why this idea started.

    But why Western nations decided that the melting pot is the model, and to decide this with such certainty, to the point where anyone questioning wa just of a different opinion, but morally wrong, that is strange. It seem of those beliefs which everyone is adamant about, but just doesn't seem t a reasoning which justifies the adamant attitude.

    ... MultiMail, the new multi-platform, multi-format offline reader!

    John F Kennedy had a saying, "rising tides raise all yachts." This concept is about anything that benefits one group can benefit others. Unfortunately it seems like human nature in order to help one group, you must oppress or hold back another. A good example is hiring quotas back in the 60's and 70's and lowered entrance exam scores for minorities. Instead of openeing doors and letting culture to move at it's own speed, someone was denied a job because of their status regardless. Diversity training is supposed to open people's eyes to recognize there is no single race or gender that corners the market on any skill, however on the management side the message coming from HR is hire the most diverse person even if they aren't the best qualified. Imagine if a basketball team was required to adhere to these rules?
    How many teams have a quadraplegic dwarf that identifies as a vampire on their starting lineup? I have nothing against quadaplegic dwarf vampires, mind you. People do not watch sports because of reasons other than athletic abilit y. Black players moved from the negro leagues to the major leagues because they can throw, hit and field a baseball. Some people thrw a fit at first, the en got over it.

    It is sad when one thing is said on stage, when it is done differeently behind the scenes. It's like a salesperson selling a product they have no faith in, yet are told to sell it or else lose their job.

    ---

    I don't think it is about oppression, or the need to put others down. This idea was never thought out in the first place and was a bad idea from the start.

    Quotas MUST discriminate. Pushing for diversity MUST discriminate racially. There is no other way around it, never was. The problem is that you couldn' criticise these measures, so no one thought about the ramifications because thinking about the implications of this was forbidden.

    Just the idea that someone is more 'diverse' than another is beyond silly. This is LITERALLY Racism, scoring people based on their race. All around companies are doing this for diversity metrics, ranking people on race just like the Third Reich was doing. Let me repeat, it is common practice in the West to literally rate the value of people based on their race, and this is done by people who say they are socially progressive.

    I learned over 20 years ago that this is was identity politics, and just a p to attack or diminish one group over an other.



    It's ironic the people that scream rascism act in thoe most rascist
    ways. Same group that complains about an oppressive government are also the type that would institute oppressive policies which benefit themselves.

    Well they say that those who point their fingers at hate are pointing three fingers back at themselves.

    I don't really think it is ironic actually. Most "anti-racists" are actually quite racist, they just are racist in a different way. If you aren't a simple minded conservative who actually believes what these people say, there is no irony or contradiction. They are exactly how they act.

    This probably explains in part the rise of populism and the far right, as
    they

    are the ones addressing this issue and offering solutions. It is a bit like climate change, you can't complain about people voting for more extreme
    partie

    who are promising to do something about the problem, when you yourself
    insist
    on business as usual.

    Yes, and you also cannot blame people that, while believing it is an
    issue don't want to be forced from the current tech until the new tech
    is fully ready (and affordable!), vote for a populist who promises to solve the runaway inflation that is partially caused by the "pain we
    need to go through" to transition away from fossil fuels.

    As I've said before, and written in published aticles, if you don't want the "populists" or "far right" to win sway over people over this issue, then address it yourself. As mainstream politicians want to ignore the issue, people will support those who at least acknowledge it.

    That is all beside the point. Whether "group X" does better in school or not doesn't change the subject of the debate, that there is a demographic replacement going on. Whether "group X" is better or not doesn't change the moral quandry of creating and supporting policies which deal to a people being demographically replaced.

    I responded to two peoples' spurious, anecdotal, and mostly racist arguments with actual data. So it is not beside the point.

    You can go argue with their posts and tell them they're beside the
    point.

    The issue is whether there is a large scale demographic change in many Western cities and what the moral hazard is of supporting policies which lead to this.

    And yes, I will state clearly that THEIR argument is beside the point too. But this is why conservatives/the right always lose in the end.

    MRO takes the cake on this one though. In Milwaukee, which is 20%
    Latino, most of the best performing schools (by graduation rate and
    test scores) are over 90% Latino. Supporting data can be found here: https://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards

    Now that's cool.

    Who starts businesses for most of the food trucks, lots of restaurants, roofing and landscaping, etc.? Their parents.

    Or burial vaults. One couple I met had a very successful business doing burials. People were just dieing to get to their business (sorry, I just had to say that).

    Your mileage may very in the U.S. Southwest. But up here, the best
    schools and many of the businesses are started by Latinos.

    Good. I'm glad that some of the studies that I saw were... less than accurate.

    i'm not a big back the blue guy, but i felt sorry for those police officers. they had little or no help when all hell was breaking loose. those few citizens who picked up arms and defended their neighbors are heros.

    it was bad there. you could be walking down the street and people would attack you with bricks for no reason. people were walking around firing guns into crowds.

    Latinoamericans are not an homogeneous group.

    Cuban escapees carry a much different cultural luggage than Argentinians. I mention this because Spain is one of the go-to countries for Spanish speakers and we get lots of immigrants from
    South America. People loves to lump them all together but the cultural differences are there.

    Just pointing that out XD

    (And yes, escapees from the worst cesspits of South America tend to be hard workers, and escaped their cesspits precisely because their cesspits piss on hard working people).

    It takes courage (and serious motivation) to leave everything behind to bring your family to a better, safer place. The hard workers are the ones buy into the system and try to make it work.

    I am by no means any-immigration or anti-hispanic, either. In my area there are thousands of acres of grapes and fruits, and all the picking is done by migrant workers. Grapes can be trimmed on in the winters and winters have
    been mild enough to keep these workers going year after year.

    The problem I have with illegals is they do not pay taxes, and there's no
    means of vetting them to know if they have violent or criminal backgrounds. Some are mules and carry drugs over the border, then turn themselves in for a ride home after they make their deliveries. Scrappers are bad, too. They drive around and check out farms, looking for scrap metal to turn in. Some
    are honest. Others will tresapass and look through buildings and take more than
    scrap metal.

    Regarding political refugees, we need to fix the process if there is a legitimiate reason for people to seek asylum. Living in a shitty, backward country isn't enough.

    You cannot convince some people of that last bit regarding sustainability.
    I would not have any problem with it at all... and probably wouldn't even
    give it a thought... if I thought it was sustainable.

    Here in my state, many of them do. Their employer takes it out of their paycheck... although they are often using stolen and/or deceased persons'
    SSNs to do so.

    Yes, I am aware that others are probably being paid cash under the table.

    Agreed, it should not be enough. There are some in the FIDO POLITICS echo
    who believe that should always be more than enough, though.
