Radio Derb Is On The Air: “They’ll Swamp The Boat”, Etc.

As a podcast on iTunes, listenable/downloadable onscreen at Taki’s Magazine, or as a transcript here.

For anyone who gives a fig about Western civilization there is only one story that matters in these years we’re living through:  The swelling flood of Third Worlders pouring into our countries.  Even some mainstream commentators are starting to get it.

The situation is worst in Europe, where the invaders are Muslims and black Africans, the two groups least able or willing to assimilate to Western norms.  I give over much of this week’s broadcast to that.

Then:

20090916_sinking_lifeboat[1]Like Europe, we have a big landmass to our south with lots of screwed-up countries in it.  A lot of the people down there, tired of living in screwed-up countries, would like to come and live in ours.

The thought might cross your mind that those countries are screwed up, like the nations of Africa and Islamia, because the people who live there made them that way:  and if they move en masse to our countries, they’ll screw us up too.  If that thought did cross your mind you are a very very bad person and should be ashamed of yourself.

When a phenomenon is repeatedly in the news, as mass immigration is, the people who write and broadcast the news develop a special jargon for talking about it, a whole set of key words and phrases to trigger “appropriate” emotions in us consumers of the news.  I just a moment ago mentioned how the word “dream” is now compulsory in any story about illegal immigration.  This is supposed to get you thinking that illegals aren’t scofflaws and moochers but soulful, spiritual types clambering over obstacles in pursuit of a shining vision.

Here’s another one of those trigger words:  “humanitarian.”  Now, humanitarianism is by no means a shameful or ignoble impulse.  Beastly things go on in the world, and we should help each other when we can.

We should also, however, recognize that humanitarianism can lead to bad results all round.  You’re in a crowded lifeboat and the sea around you is full of people screaming for help.  What’s the right course of action?  The right course of action is to row like hell out of there and let them drown, or they’ll swamp the boat and you’ll all drown too.  It’s not humanitarian, but it’s right.

So watch out for that word “humanitarian.”  It’s planted in these news stories to tug at your emotions.  As always in life, you need to use your head as well as your heart, figure out the right course of action, which is not necessarily the humanitarian one.

Here for example is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on her way down to Texas Thursday for a first-hand look at the Hun pouring in through the gate.  Quote:  “The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation’s southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions.”

What it actually demands, of course, is a well-manned border fence constructed under Israeli supervision, combined with some stiff sanctions on Mexico, who are obviously aiding and abetting this invasion. That, however, would vex the NAABP and the race lobbies, and so is unthinkable.  Better find some weasel words to cover up.  “Humanitarian crisis,” that should do the trick.

What this actually is, is a law-enforcement crisis, a Congressional accountability crisis, and a crisis of executive delinquency.  Don’t expect to hear that from Nancy, though.

The full Radio Derb playbill:

  • Europe’s first suicide attempt.  (High civilization was no defense.)
  • The Hun is at the gate.  (Brought to mind by an eye-stopping photograph.)
  • Signor Rosario is very afraid.  (While the 20:80 society comes apace.)
  • Europe’s second suicide attempt.  (A draft-dodger dreams.)
  • Swamping the lifeboat.  (Us too.)
  • The great job robbery.  (A real humanitarian crisis.)
  • The Door to Hell.  (The creative imagination of our dear friend President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov)
