Op-Ed: The Great Replacement
Do you know that the last time a Democrat presidential candidate carried a majority of the white vote in America was in 1964? That was also the same year LBJ buried Republican Barry Goldwater in the biggest popular vote landslide in history.
That’s right. It’s been almost six decades since a Democrat won a majority of the white vote in the U.S. Nixon won that vote twice as did Reagan, both Bushes and even hapless losers like Dole, McCain, and Mitt Romney.
Could this electoral phenomenon have something to do with the fact that Democrats drastically changed our nation’s immigration laws in the mid-to-late 1960s to flood our borders with Third World migrants? Was the Ted Kennedy immigration law of 1965 part of a grand scheme to implement what Tucker Carlson calls “electoral packing?” Is this the reason why a white vote which composed more than 90% of the electorate in the 1960s is down to less than 70% today? Is the name of the game simply replacing conservative-voting white voters with probable Democrat voters imported from Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, Sudan and other desperately poor nations?
Those of us living in California understand that demography is destiny. Between 1964 and 1988, Republican presidential candidates won the state in every election but one, LBJ’s 1964 avalanche. Yet, since 1992, no Republican has even come close as California – once a prime swing state targeted by both parties – is now a non-competitive state for the GOP at all levels, the deepest of deep blue states. The same has occurred in previous swing states like Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado which had a strong record of voting Republican in presidential elections but in which the GOP now struggles to survive. Arizona is also at a tipping point as Joe Biden supposedly won the state by 10,000 votes last year, in the state that gave America and the conservative movement the great Barry Goldwater.
The reason these border states have shifted left in recent decades is largely the result of uncontrolled legal and illegal immigration. Legal immigration that admits more than one million newcomers a year and the chain migration that follows with parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and third cousins twice removed as well. In addition, America is now the home to more than thirty million illegal immigrants, 10% of our entire population. And, that population has largely clustered in the Southwest. The impact of these millions of new immigrants has been to tip the voting scales in these states to the Democrat Party. Coming from mostly poverty-stricken nations with no tradition of private property, free markets, or the rule of law, these individuals naturally gravitate to the American political party that detests private property, free markets, and the rule of law and which also promises them free health care, free education, free housing, and food stamps. That party is the Democrat Party.
Some analysts call this process of allowing as many as two million illegal immigrants to invade our country every year ( as is now the case under Fake President Biden ) the “Great Replacement.” It is a controversial term and led to calls by the Far Left to fire Tucker Carlson from Fox News when he suggested that this might be part of a broad plan to abolish the American republic itself and replace it with what Teddy Roosevelt called a “polyglot boarding house” for the world. Yet, the evidence plainly indicates that the “Great Replacement” is hardly some extremist conspiracy theory but the reality of what we see happening not only in America today but in much of Western Europe as well. Have not millions from the Middle East and northern Africa – Muslims who are difficult if not impossible to assimilate into nominally Christian, democratic societies – stormed France, Germany, and Italy in recent years, creating migrant crises akin to what we have recently seen at Del Rio, Texas?
As with any other issue, the Left tries to portray concern over the “Great Replacement” as racist. Yet, the truth is that the “Great Replacement” isn’t about race at all. It’s about pure political power. It’s about the electoral college. It’s about votes. When have you seen the Democrat Party move heaven and earth to welcome Cuban refugees into America? Not so fast, they say as anti-Communist Cubans are likely to follow the lead of their cousins in South Florida and register as Republicans. No, as Tucker Carlson observes, it’s all about “trying to replace the current electorate” with “new people, more obedient voters from the Third World.” Left-wing columnist Jennifer Rubin as much as admitted this in a recent column lamenting that “Democratic hopes that demography would deliver Texas have not been wrong, but perhaps premature…” And, what is the demography she’s talking about, white Europeans from Denmark, Holland, and Norway flooding across the Rio Grande? Not exactly.
