" Sheldon Adelson Talks Politics, Troops and Israel" And AMNESTY--Commentary Links To Us!
Peter Brimelow writes: Again, many thanks to readers who rallied to help us—but it’s still in the balance whether we can open VDARE.com in the next day or so. Please help us now.
Meanwhile, my old friends at Commentary Magazine just broke the Establishment Embargo and linked to us: Sheldon Adelson Talks Politics, Troops and Israel, by Alana Goodman, December 11, 2012
Sheldon Adelson sat at the end of a sweeping boardroom table in an office in his Las Vegas hotel, the Venetian. Earlier that week, he had described himself as “basically a social liberal” in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. His comments quickly drew criticism from both the left and right; The Huffington Post called him a “low-information billionaire,” and he was blasted by the right-wing anti-immigration activists. But Adelson seemed unfazed.
That’s us!—not named, of course. But hyperlinked.
I don’t really like to see VDARE.com described as “right-wing”—I run it as a forum site, open to anyone of any political persuasion who is opposed to America’s post-1965 immigration disaster.
But note this: VDARE.com seems to be the only media outlet, “right-wing,” “conservative,” or immigration patriot, that has dared note the fact that this biggest political donor in American history is now openly planning to buy amnesty.
Adelson seems not just “unfazed”—he comes across as an arrogant megalomaniac who thinks no-one has any “right” to criticize him.
And Commentary’s Goodman elicited from Adelson this further expression of knee-jerk immigration enthusiasm:
If Adelson does decide to take a larger role in influencing GOP policy, the upcoming immigration reform [VDARE.com note: aka Amnesty] debate could be his first opportunity. As a child of immigrants, the issue appears to hold a lot of personal significance for him.
“I was a poor person. My parents were uneducated. My parents were immigrants,” Adelson said. “All of the things that are under consideration today, I was part of.”
This is poisonous nonsense, needless to say. Even Adelson does not suggest his parents came here illegally. It’s another case of the blind, hysterical pro-immigration reflex that caused megadonor David Gelbaum to ban the liberal bureaucrats who control the Sierra Club from reviving the organization’s traditional concern about immigration’s impact on the environment—as exposed by our Brenda Walker here.
But this elite emotionalism, and this money, will pervert the immigration debate, unless America’s grass roots can be informed and mobilized—as they were, triumphantly, in the Bush Amnesty Wars of 2006 and 2007.
