A Reader Reminds Us That Ben Wattenberg Has Been Gloating Over The “Non-Europeanization Of America” Since 1984


Re: James Fulford’s blog post Ben Wattenberg Optimistic About American Demographics—But Are They, In Fact, American?

Ben Wattenberg has always been like that. In 1984 he wrote:

“Something is happening: we are becoming the first universal nation in history … If you believe, as the author does, that the American drama is being played out toward a purpose, then the non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental  quality.”
