America First Patriots Hang Mass Migration Banner Over Arlington Bridge
On Monday, November 9, 2019, America First activists hanged a banner stating “mass immigration turned Virginia blue” over the Key Bridge in Arlington, Virginia.
This movement is part of a group called the “Groypers”, who have called out establishment conservative voices during the last few weeks for promoting mass migration policies.
One of the consequences of these mass migration policies is demographic replacement.
Ironically enough, the media view discussions about demographics as a racist dog whistle for white supremacy when anyone on the Right talks about it. On the other hand, the leftist media can openly brag about the idea as long as it fits their electoral dominance narrative.
Last week, during the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights event, civil rights lawyer and racial justice advocate Judith Browne Dianis was transparent in her analysis of how a majority-minority America would be favorable for Democrats.
“When we get to 2042 or 2045, whatever you wanna use, we actually will not be suffering from what other countries like South Africa have which is having the numbers but not having the power,” said Dianis.
“People say that demographics aren’t destiny, well we are trying to make it destiny,” she continued.
None of this talk is new.
Taking a trip back to the 1990s, when immigration started to become a major issue in states like California, controversial ballot initiatives like Proposition 187 in California began to put immigration restrictionism on the map.
Prop 187 set out to bar illegal immigrants from using non-emergency health care, public education, and other services in California.
Art Torres, the former California State Senator and the current chairman of the California Democratic Party described Prop 187 as “the last gasp of white America in California.”
This initiative was originally approved by the overwhelming majority of California voters but was later overturned by a federal judge.
Even the New York Times admitted that changing demographics in certain areas in Virginia may have played a role in Democrat’s victory in the 2019 elections.
It noted the following:
The state population has boomed — up by 38 percent since 1990, with the biggest growth in densely settled suburban areas like South Riding. One in 10 people eligible to vote in the state were born outside the United States, up from one in 28 in 1990.
This points to a trend witnessed during the 2018 elections, where districts that had foreign-born voters higher than the national average went overwhelmingly Democratic.
It should be noted that this trend is not exactly monocausal. Virginia’s proximity to Washington. D.C. does make it susceptible to having a large public sector, whose workers’ vote for massive amounts of government. With how expansive Washington D.C. has become, it would not be surprising if this has a spillover effect into Northern Virginia.
With all of this taken into account, the GOP’s strategy going forward should be to put a pause on mass migration given how it’s a major threat to the party’s electoral viability.
The impact uncontrolled mass migration could have on America’s ability to function as a nation-state is no joke. Not repealing the Immigration Act of 1965 could bring destabilizing effects for generations to come.
Immigration must be front-and-center of any serious Republican’s campaign platform in the 2020 elections. The GOP’s future livelihood will likely depend on it.
