The National Rifle Association’s days of being a political powerhouse may be numbered.

Why? The answer is in the numbers.

...

Polls show that whites tend to favor gun rights over gun control by a significant margin (57 percent to 40 percent). Yet whites, who comprise 63 percent of the population today, won’t be in the majority for long. Racial minorities are soon to be a majority, and they are the nation’s strongest supporters of strict gun laws.

You don't have to look hard to find myriad examples of liberals boasting that immigration will soon bring them complete control over the government, not by changing minds but just by diluting the people traditionally called Americans' share of the vote.

I'm always puzzled by the fact people say, "Whites won't be in the majority and minorities will be the majority." Why do whites get singled out and all minorities lumped together. Whites will indeed be the single largest demographic in the US for the foreseeable future even though 50% of the country might not identify as "white, non-hispanic" at a rate of over 50% of the population.

This is true. You also can't gloat unless you frame it properly.

Because the left expects "minorities" to continue voting as a bloc, at least until American politics shift far enough to the left.

Given past experience here and in their countries of origin I don't see much reason to doubt them.

As englade proves, there is an amazing compartmentalization of the leftist mind on this point.

Progs gleefully predict the end of gun rights, Thanksgiving, and well manicured lawns, then rush happily to the race pitchforks and brown people(TM) motifs when immigration policy is questioned.

I guess that's how they can square slut feminism with the stoning of unescorted girls.

Right and closing the US boarders and deporting millions of people and nuking the middle east is how we maintain the true values of America 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

is how we maintain the traditional values of the United States

I certainly do value things like free speech, gun rights, economic freedom, local control of the government, etc., that are not popular with recent immigrants and their descendants (and the left).

I was going to mention that these "traditionally American" values have only survived to this day because of increasing support from "traditional Americans," but the elasticity seems to have just about met its limit and I expect that the NPR crowd is right that we are near the tipping point.

Very optimistic. The battle was lost through a combination of events in 1965, 1986, and 2000. At every turn, Americans lost. I'm just going to have to enjoy throwing punches on the way down. Sure, there will be talk of freedom and liberty and that stuff, but you'll be driving down Che Gueverra Avenue, on the way to have your retinal scan compared to your online activity profile.

The right wing Socialist Party will fight for traditional values, such as trials by jury, while the Progressive Party and Asian Action Party team up to fight the Black Panther Party for a share of the annual National Reparations Day grants and tax credits. But enough of this . . . ask your Apple Scooter to hurry up. Otherwise you'll miss the pillorying of the heretics and capitalists.

The people who founded this country were fleeing from monarchies and persecution.  We have historically taken all kinds of people from shitty countries and governments.  I don't seem to think it is immigrants that are the problem.  The real problem is the way we have been divided into us vs them.  The nanny state we have wasn't created by immigrants, it was started by the great depression and WW2 which FDR used to greatly expand the power of the executive branch.

I think most people coming to America are still doing so to be free and to have a better life for themselves and their descendants.  Lest we forget, here is what Reagan said:

I understand that.  I don't want seperate queues.  I want everyone to be judged on their merits.  You apply, we make a decision based on objective criteria.  If you're accepted, come on over.  If not, like college, you can apply next year.

Reagan could not know how Saul Alinksy would impact American politics.

But its expansion has steadily been fueled by them and that shows no signs of changing. You can talk about principle all you like but the fact is that immigration is driving the country to the left, and that's bad.

And I'm sure they sincerely believe that making the US more like the countries they came from will make it better. I don't agree, though, and I don't want to live in those countries.

And I don't care about some platitude just because Reagan said it. Just because mass immigration worked out (sort of) before doesn't mean there's some magical guarantee against the bad things it seems to be bringing now. Times have changed, as they say.

I'll pick my own strawberries.

To lighthouse's point, it takes generations to assimilate people, and that's assuming you isolate them from their former environment and immerse them in American culture. That isn't happening, particularly with many Hispanics because of sheer numbers that allow them to live in segregated communities, and with Muslims who come from a culture that is at odds with ideas we embrace here (many of them liberal ideals like gay marriage, but in the political correctness hierarchy Muslims trump both women and gays).

I do believe that over time you could assimilate immigrants to a point where their voting patterns would flatten, but the country will be overrun long before that could play out. I am married to the daughter of immigrants, so I am certainly not against all immigration (although I could support a moratorium on muslim immigration), but I do believe it needs to be done at a pace that allows for assimilation.

It must be whites versus everyone else. The racial agitation is not an accident. The goal is to expand the black experience in America to cover all minority groups (including women of all races), especially recent Hispanic immigrants.

People that vote for democrats believe Ted Cruz and Barack Obama want to get people off "welfare," they just disagree on how to accomplish that. Barack Obama doesn't want to shrink any government entitlement program. It's about dumping as many people onto those programs as possible, and importing them is a way to expedite the process. Racial agitation is a tool used to make sure nobody strays from the flock.
