Democrats Love ‘S***hole’ Countries, and They Want America to Become One

“This remark by the president of the United States smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy. And I’ll be very blunt, the president doesn’t speak for me as an American. He demeans America. He demeans and betrays American values by these kinds of remarks.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat

Our president has provoked “controversy” by speaking the brutal truth:

President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.
“Why are we having all these people from sh–hole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.
Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically.
In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said.
“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. “Take them out.”
In November, the Trump administration rescinded deportation protection granted to nearly 60,000 Haitians after the 2010 earthquake and told them to return home by July 2019.

Reuters provides more information and reaction:

Trump’s remarks, made in the White House, came as Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on a newly drafted immigration bill being touted by a bipartisan group of senators, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified.
Other government officials were present during the conversation, the sources said.
The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife. . . .
Many Democrats and some Republican lawmakers slammed the president for his remarks.
Republican U.S. Representative Mia Love, a daughter of Haitian immigrants, said the comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values” and called on Trump to apologize to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.
Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: “Language like that shouldn’t be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn’t be heard in the White House.”
Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said the president’s comment “smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy.”

What was being discussed, of course, was a matter of government policy. The president’s characterization of which countries are favored by current policy was crude, but essentially accurate.

If Haiti is not the all-time winner of the Worst Country in the World title, it’s certainly in contention for that prize on an annual basis, and it is not an insult to Mia Love to tell the unfortunate truth about Haiti. Her father was an enemy of the Duvalier regime in Haiti, and her parents were part of an exodus of the country’s middle class during the 1970s and ’80s. Once the most intelligent and ambitious members of Haiti’s population fled the island nation, however, who remained behind? Haiti is plagued by endemic violence and poverty. Perhaps some of President Trump’s feminist critics would find this information relevant:

Sexual violence in Haiti is a common phenomenon. . . . Reporting a rape to police in Haiti is a difficult and convoluted process, a factor that contributes to underreporting and difficulty in obtaining accurate statistics about sexual violence. Few rapists face any punishment.

Do the celebrity feminists who used the Golden Globe ceremony to decry the “rape culture” in Hollywood really want to import thousands of such people to the United States? While the president’s vulgar language is unfortunate, the underlying reality is exactly as he described it, which is highly relevant to the matter of immigration policy.

America will be coping with the consequences of decades of misguided policy (see “Ted Kennedy’s Real Legacy: 50 Years of Mass Immigration”) for a long, long time. Even if we could suddenly reduce immigration to zero — or perhaps, as President Trump implied, if we were henceforth to admit only Norwegians — we ought not to underestimate the difficulties of assimilating the millions of immigrants from “sh–hole” countries we have already admitted. Vox Day has described open-borders ideology as based upon the “Magic Dirt” theory, i.e., the belief that “all immigrants will magically become Real Americans . . . by virtue of geographical relocation, thereby instantly negating of all of their racial, ethnic, religious, political, and cultural traditions.” Any assertion that immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti or Somalia will automatically discard the culture of their homelands, merely because they have immigrated to the United States, is self-evidently false. It is foolish to ignore the risk that immigrants from “sh–hole” countries may bring with them the same problems that afflicted them in the failed nations they fled. Why would Democrats therefore insist that their deal with President Trump must include permanent legal residency for such immigrants, who were originally admitted on a temporary basis as “refugees”?

Because Democrats hate America, that’s why.

Democrats hate freedom. Democrats hate capitalism and Christianity and everything else that is good about America. Democrats want to turn our country into a “sh–hole” no different than the nightmare regimes of corruption, poverty and violence these “refugees” have fled. If telling this truth offends Democrats, good. They deserve to be offended.

By the way, are you aware that nearly 40 percent of sex offenders in Oregon prisons are illegal aliens? Probably from “sh–hole countries.”

Like I keep saying, people need to wake the hell up.

Also, as I keep saying, Hit the Freaking Tip Jar!


UPDATE: The Norwegians don’t get it, either:

Twitter users, some of them from Norway, quickly lashed out asking Trump: Why would Norwegians want to come to America?
‘I’m confused — why the f*** would anyone migrate to the US from Norway? Why would you give up healthcare free at the point of access, living wages and reliable public services?,’ one tweet read.
‘I live in Norway and would never move to USA. We have free health care, free higher education, 5 weeks vacation 8 hours work a day. No thanks Trump,’ another user tweeted.

Vox Day provides the clarifying facts:

There are more than 4.5 million Norwegian Americans according to the most recent U.S. census, and most live in the Upper Midwest. Norwegian Americans currently comprise the 10th largest European ancestry group in the United States.
And here is why:
The introduction of the Danish grain monopoly caused severe shortages of grain in Norway that led to famine and conflict. Crop failures led to a terrible period of famine in Norway which was followed by disease and dire poverty causing thousands of deaths. Norwegians began to look to America as an escape from the devastation, political strife and hunger.
So, devastation, political strife, and hunger is the answer.

You’re welcome, Norwegian-Americans. Now please do the rest of us a favor: Stop complaining and support our President.
