Is America The World`s Kleenex? Etc.


The Fulford File, By James
Fulford

Last year, we

noted
that North Korea, a

charter member
of the

Axis of Evil,
was starting to produce refugees, who
could easily move to …South Korea!!! Where everyone
already speaks Korean, where they have relatives, where
there`s a booming capitalist economy.

But no-o-o! South Korea doesn`t

want them.
So guess who is going to receive at least
9,000 of them – thanks to Senators Sam Brownback (last

featured
here because of his hypocritical efforts to
bring the Somali Bantu to everywhere in the U.S. except
his own Kansas) and Ted Kennedy (ageing author of the
epochal

1965 Immigration Act
disaster)?

The answer, according to the
Sydney Morning Herald
the U.S!



US prepares to open door to flood of North Korean
refugees

By Marian Wilkinson, Herald Correspondent in
Washington –
July 30, 2003

But
accepting North Korean refugees received strong support
across the political spectrum in the US Senate. It was
sponsored by Senators Sam Brownback, a Republican, and
Ted Kennedy, a Democrat.

"There
is an exodus of massive proportions taking place out of
North Korea," said Senator Brownback, who put the figure
at about 300,000 people.

"South
Korea

really cannot be expected
to take all of these
refugees fleeing [
via] China."

Why can`t South Korea be
expected to take all the refugees? (Or China either, for
that matter.)

The US government would be much
better off

financially
, to say nothing of the

social costs
involved in

importing refugees,
if it just sent money to South
Korea to build housing, etc.

South Koreans include some of the
most successful of recent immigrants. But North Koreans
are an unknown quantity as far as their

adaptation
to American conditions is concerned.

Of course, South Koreans are
rightly concerned that refugees may include spies for
Kim Jong-Il.

But shouldn`t United States
Senators be concerned about the

same thing?

Reconstructing Dixie

The controversy over the nomination
of Bill Pryor, a white Southern Roman Catholic, formerly
Attorney General of Alabama, to be a Federal judge, has
led to complaints of

anti-Catholicism
in the Democratic Party.

Pryor is considered to be
insufficiently loyal to Roe v. Wade, that pillar
of modern constitutional law. Some have pointed out that
since no Catholic could be expected to give

“internal assent”
to the principles of Roe v.
Wade,
this means that

“No Catholics Need Apply”
for a federal judgeship.

This has degenerated into a

brawl
over who is a good Catholic, and who is a bad
Catholic, a debate that`s irrelevant here. (As is the
abortion issue.)

However, the Archbishop of Denver,
Charles J. Chaput, has written a powerful

letter
pointing out that the very existence of a
Catholic Attorney General in Alabama represents a major
social change.

Indeed, Chaput may exaggerate the
oppression of

Catholics in the old South
:

“Catholics were few and scattered. In the Deep South,
like Alabama, being Catholic often meant being locked
out of political and social leadership.

“Today,
much of the old South is gone. Cities like

Atlanta
and

Raleigh-Durham
are major cosmopolitan
centers. Time, social reform and

migration

have transformed the economy along with the
political system.”
[Emphases added].

A notably high

proportion
of VDARE.COM readers are Catholics. They
believe that Church doctrine does

not oppose
, and may well legitimize, the existence
of the American nation-state.

But it`s worth asking: how did this
change in the South come about? Why is Atlanta a major

cosmopolitan
center? Why are there a

lot more
Catholics in America than there were in the
bad old days?

The answer, Chaput implies: the

mass immigration
resulting from the

1965 Immigration Act,
which, in turn, was a result
of the election of Roman Catholic

immigration enthusiast
John F. Kennedy, the author
of the book

A Nation Of Immigrants
.

Kennedy made a famous

speech
to the Southern Baptist Leaders in which he
promised that his religion would make no difference to
his Presidency, that his decisions would be made “in
accordance with what my conscience tells me to be in the
national interest, and without regard to outside
religious pressure or dictate.”

I assume he meant it, and I`m sure
he would have been surprised at how many Catholics have
immigrated in the last forty years – and certainly at
how

few of them
were Irish.

But, like we always say,
immigration has consequences. And Immigration Acts have
unintended consequences.
