There's every reason to hold corruption in contempt.

But instances of corruption don't change the fact that older people are generally wiser not as controlled by their emotions as their younger counterparts. This is as true when comparing a 36 year old to a 16 year old as it is comparing a 56 year old to a 36 year old.

It could be that corruption of powerful people is a part of the human condition. How do you solve that?

Did anyone say that? There are such things as Hispanic neo-Nazis (the Nazi party was abolished in '45) but I didn't mention neo-Nazis much less imply that listening to Laura Ingraham would turn anyone into one.

What do you think of her assertion that the America we all know and love has ceased to exist due to a massive demographic change as a result of legal and illegal immigration? Do you think that for America to be America that there's a specific percentage of non-Hispanic white people (there are of course white Hispanics — US Census definition for "white" is having two parents of European descent) that must be maintained?

Dude why do you keep acting like you are confused between friggin race and culture? Do you think black American’s culture wouldn’t be considered American culture?

American culture has nothing to do with race.

Are you gonna answer my first post where I responded to your OP or are you just gonna keep dodging and acting like you can’t read?

the truth is always in the middle somewhere! most people are quietly indifferent and that is part of the problem. the squeakiest wheel gets the grease and at this point the squeakiest wheels are the extreme elements in each party. if we ever want to get along we are going to have to put aside our egos, compromise with each other and meet each other somewhere in the middle!

There was also a rapidly expanding nation in the 19th Century, which drove much of that immigration. Today, our landmass is stagnant. We're pigeonholing foreigners next door to natives and the results are predictably negative.


Oh, the country is too small! The population of the United States is 326 million and we have a total area of 3.797 million sq miles. The population of Germany is 82.67 million with a total area of 137,847 square miles. They have a quarter of the population living in an area 3.6% as large as the United States. That's nothing though. The Japanese have 127 million people living in a country that's only slightly larger than Germany at 145,936 sq miles. The percentage of agricultural land in the US and Germany is about the same (44-47%) and in Japan it's way down below 13% of the total area.

We're not bursting at the seams compared to other countries. In fact, we are about the same size as Europe (3.7 mi^2 vs 3.9 mi^2) with 43% of the population.

Also, you seem to be implying that immigrants in the 19th century came in at Ellis Island and were sent out to the front lines manifesting our manifest destiny al a Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Far and Away. I'm sure that a lot of immigrants in the 19th century chose to settle in the frontier but many did not. We've got nothing comparable to problems of the 19th century like the 1863 New York Draft Riots where Irish immigrants (maybe they should have gone the Far and Away route?) tore up NYC and about 100 people died (which as a percentage of total NYC population would equate to about 1,000 today).

All that aside, I want people who come here to integrate into American society. I want them to assimilate into American culture. I think most people do. I look at history and I look at people I know who are immigrants and I'm confident that this isn't something that we need to panic about.

I have no idea what you're going on about. First off, Ingraham didn't say anything about culture. Secondly, if she meant to imply "culture" by "demographic," I find that also to be largely bull# and also not inconsistent with the rhetoric of white nationalists. Would you like some quotes from prominent white nationalists blabbering about culture? And also on the topic of pretending, let's not get it twisted, the same people who are slurping up that slop don't want black American culture to be any more prevalent than it is either. So drop the disingenuous red herrings.

And thirdly, if you accept that "black American culture" is American culture then why wouldn't Latino American culture or Asian American culture, etc also be American culture? Seems like you just shutdown your own argument.


Are you gonna answer my first post where I responded to your OP or are you just gonna keep dodging and acting like you can’t read?


Lmao. I'm not dodging anything. I was afk and I came back and responded to a few posts while I waited for a db backup to complete. Now I'm going to go back to work if that's okay with you?

And im sure pigeon holing people for listening to a particular news source, and making them out to be Neo Nazis, is exactly what this country needs to come together

I have read through many of your threads, you claim this moral highground , but really youre just furthering the divide by creatively putting people in boxes.

I dont care how well written your threads or thoughts are, a spade is a spade and thats exactly what youre doing, artistic flourish or not.

America is racially diverse, it doesn’t matter if you are Asian, Hispanic, black or whatever, American culture is American culture no matter what race are.

You are asserting that she was implying race when she mentioned demographic but 95% of the people in this thread interpreted what she said the same way I did. I guess you are the only one that is right and all the rest of us is wrong mmmk sounds legit


She never mentioned race and pretty much everyone else here interpreted but she said as implying culture and you somehow want to turn it into a race card and even title your B.S. thread a right-wing white panic? Your thread title is racist dude! Are there any “right wing” blacks? “Right wing” Hispanics? Asians? Why single out the right wing whites?

Ironically, the description of the YouTube video published to the Fox News YouTube channel reads, "Every once in a while, leftists will slip up and tell us what they really think about America."

It's an ironic description because what happened on Laura Ingraham's Wednesday show was that Ingraham slipped up and told us what she believes her audience really thinks about America. Here's the video:



The segment entitled "The Left's Effort to Remake America" begins with a few outtakes from a podcast interview where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is discussing her thoughts on the directions the Democratic Party should move. Specifically, Ingraham takes out of context, some snippets where Ocasio-Cortez discusses the eroding middle class. You can see the full video of that interview here but here's a transcript of the relevant parts from about 24 minutes in (my transcript):


So umm, what I honestly think that it is, is that we have not have had a party that has been investing in its own future. So, we have people who are constantly fundraising for their own re-election. The average age of a House Democrat right now is 65 years old. We are at the oldest point in American history. And not only are people just feverishly working on their own re-election for their second or sometimes third decade but there's no investment in future leadership.

Like we're putting all this money in state parties and those state parties aren't working on aggressively investing in young people running in state assembly seats, state house seats, so they can later go on to Congress. That's not happening. It's certainly on the Right but it hasn't been happening on the Left. And so for me, I think that what's happening is that you know a lot of these folks were in the political heyday in third wave 90's politics and they were campaigning and they were really kind of connected most to an electorate when they were fighting for these seats, when got these seats, when they campaigning for those when we had more of an America middle class. And so I think that politically, this like upper-middle class is probably more politically moderate but that upper-middle class doesn't exist anymore in America and thanks to the continued deregulation of Wall Street, thanks to the continued gutting of working and middle class people, we need stronger champions but I don't that they see exactly how rising income inequality has resulted in a very stark political reality and it has changed our political landscape.

But you know their heyday was in like the 90's when like you know kids had Furbies and soccer mom's had like two vans and stuff. That's not America anymore.


The question was really about why the Democratic establishment hasn't been moving toward where she and Bernie Sanders are. Whether or not you agree with what she said, it's certainly not anything radical. She's basically saying that a bunch of older people have been in office for decades and they're using the 90's playbook that got them elected in the first place and not adapting to the changing landscape. She also saying that they're not doing a good job of cultivating future leadership which I agree with completely.

Ingraham of course misrepresented this as Ocasio-Cortez somehow advocating for "remaking America" and made sure to point out that she loves her minivan (I'm sure it's a nice minivan considering she makes millions of dollars a year). You could be forgiven for thinking that Ingraham was about to go on tirade about the evils of socialism but what came next made it readily apparent that she as using Ocasio-Cortez not for her "radical" progressivism but rather as one of two Hispanic bookends for a rant which I can only describe as soft white nationalism. (my transcript again)


Nevertheless she's kinda right in a general sense because in some parts of the country it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore.

Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people. And they’re changes that none of us ever voted for and most of us don’t like.

From Virginia to California we see stark examples, in some ways, the country has changed. Now much of this is related to both illegal, and in some cases, legal immigration that progressives love.

Remember the old Democrats, maybe some of them that was referring to. They used to think that borders mattered. But the new activists believe that enforcing immigration laws is essentially an ongoing human rights violation. Of course they want to abolish ICE and so forth. Well today we were reminded again why our law has to be enforced, borders strengthened and the wall built, loopholes closed and sanctuary city policies ended once and for all. Check out what happened courtesy of Philadelphia's refusal to cooperate with ICE detainers.


She then goes on to detail the story of violent criminal from Honduras and related fear mongering with the chyron "Illegals Ripping Apart Families Across the Country."

You can parse that # anyway you want but it's pretty clear what she is saying: legal and illegal immigration are altering the racial makeup of the United States to the point that the America we know and love doesn't exist anymore.

I don't know Laura Ingraham personally. I know that she has three adopted children: two boys from Russia and a girl from Guatemala. And I know that she once dated Indian-born Dinesh D'Souza. So maybe her overt to the point of hardly qualifying as "dog whistling" statements are just her saying what she thinks her audience wants to hear because she enjoys being rich. Maybe she's got some idea of an ideal racial makeup of America in mind where non-whites are allowable in certain proportions to a large white majority.

I dunno. But the fact remains that what she said was what she said and I assume it reflects what she believes many in her audience feel. Who am I to disagree with the opinion of a right-wing through leader who clearly has her finger on the pulse of American conservatism?




What do you think about that man that illegal immigrant being set free by the “sanctuary” city of Philadelphia instead of turning him in to ICE (at their request mind you) only to go and rape a little girl? By the way he had previously been deported already and snuck back in because with the border the way it is it is very easy to sneak in.

What do you think about that Illegal that came with what he claimed as his daughter, was processed and released only to find out that his “daughter” wasn’t really his daughter but in fact his sex slave? This is due to our stupid “catch and release” program in which we allow them to run about our country until their hearing (slim chance they will show up).

Would you vote for Ocasio-Cortez?

I wouldn't say a fair amount, it's just the ones who speak the loudest end up representing more than they should. I've seen xenophobia in some areas where populations were 98 plus percent white. No, it did not encompass a view that everywhere held there. There were ones who intently keep it that way, telling not just other races, but other unfamiliar people, that there are no rentals available, they act passive aggressive, some aggressive, etc.

Seems like she or her elders at the station had keen intent to drive agenda to the listeners, when in fact this isn't exactly a new thing and that many Americans already knew of the changing demographics. Some of us back in high school were encouraged to learn other languages for example due to multi culture and how it was growing and that was in a Conservative leaning state!

So you don't want to address what she said? Probably smart on your part.

Why should anyone address anything from this person ?
The one that stated that the employment rate was high because everyone had 2 jobs ?
What a loon!!!!!
But , that is the reasoning ability of the Progressive movement
0 , zip , zilch , nada.

Wow you get it, at least you are on the way given you asked the right question.

For clarity, yes, for America to remain as America in more than name it must retain its culture, values and constitution. That means controlling immigration and stopping/ curtailing illegal immigration. Failure to do so will result in the country turning into something unrecognizable...a far left, dangerous, poverty stricken # hole enabled by illegal votes and total dependence on the state.

Given the disgusting direction the left has taken and that major institutions have already fallen to the lefts sick ideology, including the media and Hollywood, i would say Ingraham is also correct when she says it's already happened. It's at least on the edge with a decision to make and could go either way. The lefts authoritarian state controlled # hole or reversing course to make America great again.
