To Peter
Brimelow

I have only a couple of questions for you, which I am
certain you will not respond to.

Where did your family immigrate from?

Why was this immigration acceptable?

Why is immigration no longer acceptable?

What countries should we allow people to immigrate from?


"White culture"

is no doubt much different than it was 100 or 200 years
ago in w:st="on">America due to immigration. Why are
only the recent changes risky to
"white culture"
?

What do you make of the line which welcomed immigrants to w:st="on">New York for decade upon
decade upon decade?

“Give me your
tired, your poor, Your
huddled masses
yearning to breathe free”

I would love to hear your opinions and justifications for
what can only be interpreted as xenophobic and racist
ranting. It`s not immigration that is destroying the
Republican parties [sic],
it is offensive ideologues such as yourself. You`ve made
me come off sounding like a liberal which is why I voted
primarily as such in 2008, along with substantial chunks
what was once the National
Republican Party
.

Your response is strongly desired.

Thank you for your time.

I don`t want to be dismissive, but 14 years ago I wrote a
whole book on this, which you can download for free
here.
It was based on a 1992

National Review cover
story you can read

here
. When you`re up to speed with this debate,
write me if you have more questions. To coin a phrase,


I am certain you will not respond.



James Fulford adds
: That Statue Of Liberty
thing gets on my nerves. It`s a
great statue
, but does the fact that a few friends
of Emma Lazarus stuck a plaque with a poem on it trump
the US Constitution? I did an article about it years
ago, and
put it this way
:


"This whole
thing is very strange. Imagine a hypothetical foreign
country with immigration problems explaining its policy
this way: `We used to have sensible immigration laws,
but someone built this damn statue.` You`d think they
were mad."
