    And this is what is driving the alt right and trump movement , fear of the demographic shift and their loss of power in the coming years.
    They won in the very short term , but going forward changes are coming



    "They can sense that that reality is slipping away and wonder what it means for their children. It’s why some Americans get flustered when they are told to press 1 for English, favor a national language (even though dozens of languages have always been spoken here) or have a knee-jerk response upon finding out a Mosque might be built across the street.

    Being a minority, a state in which your most cherished ideas and ideals are always challenged by the ideas and ideals of others who don’t look like you, is uncharted territory for white America. Great change, whether good and necessary or painful and negative, brings great stress."

    What a bunch of crap. The American people want the government to look out for them instead of the interests of the oligarchs. It is that simple.

    Of course it brings great stress. Why shouldn't white people be concerned that their country is turning into Mexico?

    Are you really looking forward to living in Mexico yourself?

    I think most people anywhere in the world would be concerned about being reduced to a minority by mass immigration. Go to Japan and ask them why they don't accept any refugees.

    Some groups don't assimilate very well and tend to recreate the countries they left behind. We're seeing that in both Europe and America.

    Steve King, a US Congressman from Iowa, tweeted over the weekend in agreement with Geert Wilders and he may be deliberately provocative on Twitter. Steve King also displays the confederate flag on his office desk, despite the fact that Iowa was part of the Union during the American Civil War. He was received well among white nationalists and the extremist fringe which makes up 2-3% of the white population, but the vast majority of white Americans do not think or act like him at all.

    Are African albinos confused for white Europeans?

    What is appalling to state reality that people are not equal?

    Where do brown people achieve equal levels of success as Western Europeans?

    So to accomplish this they elect a member of the Oligarchs who then appoints a bunch of other oligarchs to positions of authority ... Pure genius on their part.

    That's what good Americans want. Not so much for the alt right folks. The OP is correct about whites feeling like they are becoming a minority. At some point they will. Most of the world isn't white.

    It isn't white people's country. Does the constitution or any documents grant this country to white people?
    I think it grants it to all people, regardless of color. And that makes some RW white people angry.

    Japan isn't the USA. We have a constitution to abide by. Japanese people been there how long?
    White people have been in the USA how long? Were there white people here when the Europeans started coming here?
    Did the founders specifically make this a white country?

    What is the "alt right"?

    "Most of the world isn't white"? So what? Most of the civilized world is.

    So you don't care if the US becomes a third world hell hole?

    Just for the sake of a misguided principle.

    The Constitution does not mandate open borders. Ultimately, the question is what is best for America. Should America remain a majority white country or a become a country of low skilled third world immigrants who import their own problems (drugs, crime, rape, terrorism).

    Please show where I said anything of the sort.

    Also, noted, you did not address 1 single point. But did a horrible job at deflection.
    Now, where in the constitution does it say we will be a white only country.

    Are you not smart enough or adept enough to use google?
    Dark ages was a western Europe thing. NOTE: Western Europe was mostly white. Note: Western Europe was mostly christian..
    NOTE: I don't think you know what you are talking about.

    The constitution laid out what's best for America. Follow it or leave to a country better suited to your color.
    As for your 3rd world immigrants, you need to get an education, so those who live here don't make us 3rd world if you don't know what immigrants bring to our country. Many who get visas are not low skilled.

    The Dark Ages ensued when the barbarians pillaged the civilized peoples of Europe.

    I am making an analogy as the barbarians are now pillaging the civilized people of America and Europe.

    The ones who don't get visas are the problem.

    Really? I do not believe you. If what you say were true the lefties would oppose Sharia as much as they do Chritianity....that is not happening.
