The Dark Side of Diversity

by Patrick Buchanan

Since the massacre of 32 students and teachers at Virginia Tech, the
mainstream media have obsessed over the fact the crazed gunman was able to
buy a Glock in the state of Virginia.

Little attention has been paid to the Richmond legislators who voted to make
"Hokie Nation," a Middle American campus of 26,000 kids, a gun-free zone
where only the madman had a semi-automatic.

Almost no attention has been paid to the fact that Cho Seung-Hui was not an
American at all, but an immigrant, an alien. Had this deranged young man who
secretly hated us never come here, 32 people would be heading home from
Blacksburg for summer vacation.

What was Cho doing here? How did he get in?

Cho was among the 864,000 Koreans here as a result of the Immigration Act of
1965, which threw the nation's doors open to the greatest invasion in
history, an invasion opposed by a majority of our people. Thirty-six
million, almost all from countries whose peoples have never fully
assimilated in any Western country, now live in our midst.Cho was one of
them.

In stories about him, we learn he had no friends, rarely spoke and was a
loner, isolated from classmates and roommates. Cho was the alien in Hokie
Nation. And to vent his rage at those with whom he could not communicate, he
decided to kill in cold blood dozens of us.

What happened in Blacksburg cannot be divorced from what's been happening to
America since the immigration act brought tens of millions of strangers to
these shores, even as the old bonds of national community began to
disintegrate and dissolve in the social revolutions of the 1960s.

To intellectuals, what makes America a nation is ideas - ideas in the
Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Gettysburg Address and Dr.
King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

But documents no matter how eloquent and words no matter how lovely do not a
nation make. Before 1970, we were a people, a community, a country. Students
would have said aloud of Cho: "Who is this guy? What's the matter with him?"

Teachers would have taken action to get him help - or get him out.

Since the 1960s, we have become alienated from one another even as millions
of strangers arrive every year. And as Americans no longer share the old
ties of history, heritage, faith, language, tradition, culture, music, myth
or morality, how can immigrants share those ties?

Many immigrants do not assimilate. Many do not wish to. They seek community
in their separate subdivisions of our multicultural, multiracial,
multiethnic, multilingual mammoth mall of a nation. And in numbers higher
than our native born, some are going berserk here.

The 1993 bombers of the World Trade Center and the killers of 9-11 were all
immigrants or illegals. Colin Ferguson, the Jamaican who massacred six and
wounded 19 in an anti-white shooting spree on the Long Island Railroad, was
an illegal. John Lee Malvo, the Beltway Sniper, was flotsam from the
Caribbean.

Angel Resendez, the border-jumping rapist who killed at least nine women,
was an illegal alien. Julio Gonzalez, who burned down the Happy Land social
club in New York, killing 87, arrived in the Mariel boatlift.

Ali Hassan Abu Kama, who wounded seven, killing one, in a rampage on the
observation deck of the Empire State Building, was a Palestinian. As was
Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Robert Kennedy.

The rifleman who murdered two CIA employees at the McLean, Va., headquarters
was a Pakistani. When Chai Vang, a Hmong, was told by a party of Wisconsin
hunters to vacate their deer stand, he shot six to death. Peter Odighizuwa,
the gunman who killed the dean, a teacher and a student at the Appalachian
School of Law, was a Nigerian.

Hesham Hadayet, who shot up the El Al counter at LAX, killing two and
wounding four, was an Egyptian immigrant. Gamil al-Batouti, the copilot who
yelled, "I put my faith in Allah's hands," as he crashed his plane into the
Atlantic after departing JFK Airport, killing 217, was an Egyptian.

Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, the UNC graduate who ran his SUV over nine people
on Chapel Hill campus and said he was "thankful for the opportunity to
spread the will of Allah," was an Iranian.

Juan Corona, who murdered 25 people in California to be ranked with the
likes of Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy, was a Mexican.

Where does one find such facts? On VDARE.com, a website that covers the dark
side of diversity covered up by a politically correct media, which seem to
believe it is socially unhealthy for us Americans to see any correlation at
all between mass migrations and mass murder.

"In our diversity is our strength!" So we are endlessly lectured.

But are we really a better, safer, freer, happier, more united and caring
country than we were before, against our will, we became what Theodore
Roosevelt called "a polyglot boarding house for the world"?

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn't object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    An interesting read, but you seem to think that imigrants are the root of all evil in the US. You make mention of a list of immigrants who have killed multiple people as though only immigrants are going around killing people. You mention 9/11, but what about Oaklahoma City... John Malvo, what about Jeffrey Dahmer and most other serial killers. I agree that there is a correlation between mass migrations and mass killings (Look at the effects of Irish and Italian Immigrants in NYC at the turn of the century), but the homegrown problems far outweigh any problems brough forth by immigrants.

    As an immigrant to this country, I myself am always shocked at how far the government will go to accomodate everyone. Go to a DMV in NYC and you will find the written tests in almost every language known to man, even though every traffic sign I've ever seen is written in english.

    The problem isn't with the isolationist tendencies of immigrants, but with the governments desire for accomodation and inability to force assimilation upon those who don't speak english as a first language, or have disparate cultural backgrounds to our own. I've personally met people who have lived in the US for more than half their lives who only know their home country's language. How do they get a drivers license, pass a citizenship test, get a college degree and not speak english? It happens all the time. That needs to change.

    As an FYI, the individual responsible for the development of the "Bunker Buster" bomb used thoughout the early days of the Afganistan campaign, was a refugee from Vietnam. She gave an interview that, in my mind, exhibited how every immigrant to this country should feel.

    I think Rory fails to note that the people he is speaking of were LEGAL immigrants to this country, who came here for a better life and did so with respect for our society. The people referred to in the article are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS who sneak into this country and are already breaking the law just being here. Obviously breaking the law to them is not a big deal. That puts a new perspective on things...

    First off, I will point out that Pat Buchanan wrote this article, not myself. I don't totally agree with Mr. Buchanan on everything he says, but I do agree that so-called "race relations" in this country are a root of a huge number of our social ills.

    As for immigration, I think that the anonymous person above hit the nail on the head.
