From: An Unhyphenated America [Email him]

I am not trying to be a wise-ass, I just would like an explanation without name calling. I respect your work and think you guys are doing a great job defending our republic.  I have just have one question: If you agree with the principles of Teddy Roosevelt`s speech, then how come you do not also criticize white hyphenated Americans, namely Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans and Jewish-Americans.

I believe they are a bigger problem promoting multiculturalism and victimology than the non-white Americans.  Black Americans have no wealth and all their organizations, like the NAACP, are funded by whites. Whenever I turn on the TV and see someone ridiculing a real American like Sarah Palin, the person is most likely a Jew or of Irish or Italian descent.

 The Jews are the biggest problem since they dominate the MainStream Media. Irish-Americans and Italian-Americans still refuse to assimilate and are constantly talking about their Irish or Italian heritage. I don`t see Americans of French, English, German, and Northern European countries carrying on the way the "Irish" and "Italians" do about their heritage.

The writer is an American of French-Canadian descent, (we asked) but doesn`t make a big thing about it.

James Fulford writes: Here at VDARE.com we don`t always agree with Teddy Roosevelt, especially the foreign policy parts. (Too McCain-like) For one thing, he captured Puerto Rico. We`d be happy to give it back. Our presentation of his historical speech to the Knights of Columbus is a public service.

And we spend a lot of time criticizing various white ethnic immigration enthusiasts, which leads to some interesting Today`s Letters, especially from the Irish. It`s probable that if there is a major immigrant group, we`ve offended it. It`s also likely that we`ve published articles by members of that group. Search the archives and you`ll find both.
