Slogan

Our nation was built by people who went through Ellis Island, not around it.

And spare me the nonsense about how the Mexicans somehow are not the ancestors of Spanish conquistadors, or that the Mexica Aztecs were not themselves imperialistic.

America is what we--primarily English speaking ancestors of people born in the UK or Ireland--made it, and if it were still populated by sparse populations of Indians, the Mexicans would have invaded it a long time ago, to steal what they could.  They certainly would not be immigrating illegally to places where nothing had been built.

We know what happens when Mexicans are given the chance to build a nation.  They already built one, and large numbers of them prefer ours.  That is the plain and simple truth.  Remember this.  Truth is going the way of the cigarette machine and the dime store Indian.

Truth is simply not something whose existence can be tolerated much longer as an artifact independent of State propaganda.  We live in times where facts are tortured.  The history is pretty clear that at some point this will lead to the real thing. I wish I were exaggerating, but unless someone can convince me that Lenin, and Mao, and Ho, and Fidel, and all the others are figments of my imagination--or unless someone can convince me that the same words and ideas they peddled are not even now ubiquitous among people who should know better--then I see no reason to doubt it.

I hope it is not too late, but it is certainly becoming too late, and I don't know what to do about it.  So much stupidity, so little time.
