When an immigrant terrorist strikes in the US, what they talk about is his “American Dream”–its sick. Some examples:
- The New York Times on the Boston Bombing: Before Bombs, a Battered American Dream , By Deborah Sontag, David M. Herszenhorn And Serge F. Kovaleski, April 27, 2013.
- USA Today on San Bernardino: San Bernardino suspect, a dad, lived the American dream, Chris Woodyard and Brad Heath, USA TODAY, December 3, 2015
- The Washington Post on Ariel Castro, the Puerto Rican who kept three girls as kidnapped sex slaves in his Cleveland basement: Cleveland suspect Ariel Castro’s American dream darkened by allegations of violence by Manuel Roig-Franzia, Jerry Markon and Luz Lazo May 11, 2013
Steve Sailer had some thoughts on the last one:
Have you noticed how immigrants and/or Hispanics have become inseparable in the media mind from the cant phrase “the American dream,” even when the implications are disastrous…?
Q. What are they thinking?
A. I don`t think they are thinking. They can`t help themselves. The whole American Dream / Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor / Nation of Immigrants / Statue of Liberty thing has just become a Pavlovian reflex.
By the way, when did “American Dream” become a euphemism for “immigrant/ethnic?”
