Radical Agenda EP338 – RAISE Up!
Here at the Radical Agenda, it took us a little while to get up to speed on immigration issues. Like many libertarians, I was clinging to the misguided notion that immigration restrictions were little more than price controls on labor, dictated by unwise central planners, and irrational xenophobic fools.
These ideas were sadly backed up by the misbehavior of ostensibly right wing people. They would perpetually complain about illegal immigration, insisting their concerns had nothing to do with race. To hear them tell it, the problem with illegal immigration was all about “respect for the law” and since most of the laws on our books today are not worthy of much respect, I didn’t see much reason to care for those pertaining to immigration, without better justification for the policy than “because FedGov said so!”
After all, if what you’re primarily concerned about is adherence to the laws, this could be resolved by opening the borders legally, and granting amnesty to illegal aliens already here. Their lack of support for such policies, seemed to defy their civic nationalist attempts to avoid being painted a racist.
To understand the problem, I needed to look at the world through a racial lense. “Those people” are not “us” and so “they” have to be repelled otherwise “we” will be replaced by “them.” The legality of their entry is not the issue, it is the entry itself. The laws against it are designed to prevent the very real ethnic conflict, and denying this reality leads to altering those laws to permit the ethnic conflict to ensue .
When you realize this, you realize that legal immigration is nearly as bad as that of the criminal variety. Permitting the invasion of one’s nation is only preferable to opposing it if one is a coward who would rather surrender and die than fight to live. Thus, “legal immigration” in the United States and Europe must be severely restricted beyond the nonsensical policies in place today, if our respective nations are to survive.
So I was most enthused to hear that Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) have been working with White House officials to revise and expand a bill released earlier this year that would halve the number of people who receive legal permanent residence over a decade. Trump met with Cotton and Perdue in March to discuss the legislation, known as the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act.
But that’s not all. We’ve got a packed show for you today folks. Jason Kessler, an organizer for the Unite The Right event in Charlottesville this August 12th will be joining us to talk about the event. I also have another recorded phone call I’ll play for you from an interview I had today, with a local reporter about the event.
After him, we have Bill Marchant of Northern Reaction coming to the program. You may recall me reading a piece that Bill wrote titled “Don’t Punch Right” which is going to be a major theme in my speech in Charlottesville. Rather than quote from that specific piece, let me give you his thoughts in the same vein from another piece he wrote titled “Rules for Alt Right Radicals”
Any time you feel like arguing with someone, or any time you find yourself arguing with someone, ask yourself two questions: “Is this person, generally, to the right of me politically?” and “In this argument, is this person’s position to the right of mine?” If the answer to both questions is “no,” argue away! If the answer to one or both of the questions is “yes,” think long and hard about whether your side of this argument will push the Overton Window to the Left.
There’s a lot more to get to, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype, if you would like to be on the program, and the more you talk the less I have to, so please do give us a call.
So join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern time for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like legislating against invasion.
