Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk has had his record of mass migration boosting placed under the microscope ever since America First advocates rose up against Conservatism Inc. late in 2019.
Now, a Twitter user with the handle of @ChiefTrumpster is exposing more of Kirk’s mass migration fanaticism in a podcast episode he did on his own show on August 14, 2019. (For reference, at 57:23 is when Kirk starts talking about immigration.)
In this talk, he specifically shamed the country of Japan for its restrictive immigration policies.
Kirk criticized Japan for only accepting 26 refugees in 2016. He also criticized the Land of the Rising Sun for accepting 3 refugees in the first half of 2017. He signaled that he doesn’t support “this strict of refugee resettlement.”
The leader of TPUSA called attention to the fact that only two percent of Japan’s population is foreign born. In the Conservatism Inc. gatekeeper’s view, “This actually is an example of a really, really bad immigration policy.”
Kirk also mentioned that Japan has one of the worst debt to GDP ratios in the entire world. He argues that “an upstart entrepreneurial focused immigrant community could have really helped Japan.” He gushed over how America does more refugee resettlement than the rest of the world. Specifically, how the U.S. takes in “60% of the world’s refugees.”

He follows up by bragging that the US takes "60% of the world's refugees." https://t.co/jLGNvhncf9

The Japan question is interesting.
Unlike most of Europe, North America, New Zealand, and Australia, Japan and its East Asian industrialized counterparts have not bought into the mass migration hype.
Despite this, Japan is still one of the biggest economic juggernauts in the world and is leading the way in certain fields such as robotics.
Indeed, the country does have economic problems thanks to the wacky Keynesian economic policies its elites have adopted since American forces occupied the country after it got blown to pieces during World War II. Since then, the country has undermined itself by adopting big spending programs and loose monetary policies — which are in fashion with degenerate, globalist elites in the West.
Japan has imported some of these harebrained schemes.
Nevertheless, its culture has remained very strong and has rejected the post-1960s Western consensus of mass migration. Japan has historically been known for its high trust society which stresses discipline and austerity both in economic and social matters.
It’s no shock why the country enjoys having flagship companies like Toyota and Sony, while having some of the lowest crime rates in the world. You never hear about racial conflicts or massive crime waves taking place in Japan. That is what happens when a country works to preserve its culture while adopting the best practices that made the West dominant.
More fundamental, countries can recover from economic downturns and reassert themselves on the international stage. Similarly, low birthrates are a cyclical development that eventually correct themselves over time after policy tweaks made and cultural norms change.
However, a demographic displacement caused via mass migration could fundamentally alter a nation and possibly upend the culture if the host population is not willing to assert its interests in the face of these migratory waves. Once this occurs, the historic nation in question disappears into the ether. If Japan were to fall for the Siren Song of mass migration, historians will be talking about the “Lost Tribes of Japan” centuries from now. The West could be facing this kind of scenario if it doesn’t implement immigration restriction within the next few decades.
In sum, Kirk has a transactional view of the nation state, which doesn’t take into account how certain migrant groups exercise in-group preferences and come from countries that hold political traditions that clash with their new country of residence. These habits don’t just go away overnight, above all, when continuous waves of migration encourage the creation of ethnic ghettos that end up looking like these migrants’ countries of origin.
Countries simply cannot operate like shopping malls.
And Charlie Kirk would be wise to recognize that.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
