Mexico is Not Hell, and Illegal Immigrants are not Refugees


In their rush to identify the racist running for the Republican nomination, the media have got the wrong guy. It’s John Kasich. His numerous public statements and written declarations on the subject of illegal immigration confirm that he harbors a grotesquely White Supremacist attitude toward the Mexican nation. While Trump and Cruz hold to a civic nationalist position that America should only make exceptions to immigration policy for desperate refugees, Kasich finds Mexico’s current state so deplorable that the whole nation is essentially a failed state. Mexico’s such a disaster in Kasich’s mind that all of its citizens qualify as refugees to him.

For Kasich, condemning a Mexican to return to Mexico is a deplorable human rights travesty, …a dereliction of basic Christian values. John Kasich is an ardent supporter of the death penalty, believing that killing our prisoners is Christian. John Kasich believes pre-emptive strikes on foreigners is Christian. John Kasich believes escalating a WWIII confrontation with Russia is Christian.

But relocating Mexicans to Mexico? That’s incompatible with our nation’s Christian values!

The liberal consensus on immigration is implicitly White Supremacist, imbued with the premise that disallowing entry into a White country is akin to torture (…which Kasich also happens to support, ironically). Mexico’s illegal immigrants aren’t refugees by any stretch, though the national conversation around Latin American immigration would lead one to believe they are. There’s no war going on in Mexico. Few are starving, and certainly not the ones who can afford the handsome expenses required to end up in America. They have skyscrapers, Internet service, shopping malls, highways, you name it.

Marco, Jeb, and Kasich show FAR more sympathy for foreigners than for their actual constituents.

Marco, Jeb, and Kasich show FAR more sympathy for foreigners than for their actual constituents.

On average, Mexicans make about a third of what Americans make. That’s a bummer for them, but it hardly excuses the human rights campaign to welcome them over here by the tens of millions “in search of a better life.” And when one considers that cost of living, real estate, and such are more affordable there, the humanitarian case for illegal immigration is laughable. Based on the facts rather than the myths, we should open our doors to Russian refugees. Russia’s GDP per capita is roughly equal to theirs.

And why don’t we gnash our teeth with pity for Russians? Because they’re White. They’re not inferior, pitiable, and in need of White Saviors to rescue them.

White Supremacists, both the neo-colonial “White Savior” ones and the paleocon types who yearn for a return to segregation and White domination of the third world are in agreement that Mexico is hell. Just about everybody except Mexican immigrants themselves are in agreement that Mexico’s a squalid cesspit of beheadings, drug lord anarchy, and infrastructural collapse. To have both liberals and conservatives alike tell it, it’s like Somalia with better cuisine and architecture.

Deporting the tens of millions of Mexicans who happen to be illegally on American soil is no more evil than kicking partygoers out of one’s home after the party’s over. The party’s over, and they’ve got a home to return to. The partygoers might fuss on the way out, but Sally Struthers won’t be necessary. No families need to be separated, as the American citizens are welcome to return with them to the relatively prosperous and wealthy industrialized first world nation.

We don’t absolve bank robbers, though every one of them did it for a chance at a better life. We don’t let bank robbers out of prison because imprisoning them would separate them from their families. We don’t shrug our shoulders at bank robbers and insist that they should have the charges dropped if they refrain from committing any more crimes. All of that is patently asinine, and the same arguments used in favor of illegal immigration are equally asinine.

Why don’t they feel asinine to most people, though? Easy. Most Americans are led to believe that Mexico is hell, and that escaping from it is some grave act of desperation by refugees from unspeakable deprivation. Mexicans are not refugees. They’re the farthest thing from it. They’re economic migrants eager to take advantage of our economy which happens to be even more prosperous and wealthy than theirs.

The entire conversation on both sides is insulting to Latin Americans. Their economies aren’t as strong as ours, and their key socioeconomic performance metrics lag our own somewhat. But Latin America’s been rapidly developing over the past few decades and it’s been doing quite well for itself, especially since America’s free trade policies have saved tens of millions of Latin Americans the trouble of jumping the border to take our jobs.

Americans have their own squalid poverty in the Appalachian hills and hollers. Americans have their own drug lords and virtual war zones in Chicago and Detroit. Honestly, save for a handful of places, the starving, crying, and dying brown people who figure so heavily in the White American imagination are starving, crying, and dying because our Republican and Democrat joint neocon foreign policy is directly starving, terrorizing, and killing them. The only Mexicans trapped in a third world nightmare scenario are the ones who achieved American citizenship, signed up for our military, and are currently deployed overseas.

    If Mexicans are the same as whites then why are they unable to create a similar comparable civilized society to that with which whites have created?? Ditto Jews, Muslims and Africans. Why have whites succeeded where all these other groups have failed and why must whites welcome the worlds failures and allow them to feed off of us??

    • You’re correct about the HBD but you’re wrong in your approach.

      If you make the argument about whether or not they’re better at X than us, then you’ve implicitly accepted a moral framing which implies that our separation is grounded in supremacy.

      You step right into the moral trap laid by the opposition. Once you’ve asserted the inferiority of the outgroup, then the conditioned response to “inferior others” is one of pity, lack of agency, and pathological altruism.

      For the vast majority of Westerners, you might as well be slamming your fist on the table and declaring that folks with Down’s Syndrome are funny looking and retarded. They’re not reacting with anger at your assertions. They know you’re correct. They’re reacting with anger at your cruelty and insensitivity.

      One of the greatest impediments to progress for White Advocacy is the utterly false notion that the majority of people simply aren’t aware of racial differences. They are. They’re super obvious.

      As an experiment, the next time you happen upon a man in a wheelchair at the mall, boldly declare to the people around him that he’s defective, then dance in circles around his wheelchair to demonstrate your point. When the medication wears off, invest your time in the ER pondering why the people around you attacked you even though you were perfectly correct in your assertions.

      Our moral argument for separation must be distanced from HBD. This isn’t to say that we must reject, renounce, or ignore the very real differences. But we must insist that we have a right to autonomy, sovereignty, and a future for our extended family of White American co-ethnics because survival and self-determination are universal values, …not because we’re way better at space flight.

      We do happen to be way better than Mestizos at space flight, but that’s beside the point. Mexicans still have a right to exist not despite their being different, but because they’re different. And that’s reciprocal. Our right to exist isn’t predicated on our IQ, on our achievements, or on our cephalic indices.

      Americans would go Red Dawn in a heartbeat if tens of millions of Russians poured over the border. Why? Because they perceive Russians as moral equals rather than benighted inferiors. Paradoxically, deeply ingrained White Supremacy is what’s holding White Advocacy back.

      If you can convince White Americans that Mexicans are moral equals, then they’ll start thinking clearly about immigration issues.

    • Fee-fi-fo-fum

      Yeah and the people who are accusing us of being immoral, these people kill innocent women and children in their sleep and murder innocent civilians out of racial hatred then gut the corpses of all sellable parts to resell for profit.

    • Fr. John+

      Yes, exactly! There IS a racial/intellectual/aesthetic SUPERIORITY that is visible, palpable, demonstrable, and verifiable, that makes White Culture the ONLY ‘best’ culture in the WORLD. We couldn’t even have this discussion, if this mindset had not be regnant the last seven hundred years!

    • Fr. John+

      “If you make the argument about whether or not they’re better at X than us, then you’ve implicitly accepted a moral framing which implies that our separation is grounded in supremacy.”

      ALL OF LIFE is lived within a “Moral Framing.” There is no sphere of existence that is apart from either the Covenantal blessing or the Covenantal cursing of God. Rousas Rushdoony made that clear in his “Institutes of Biblical Law.” This is the REASON for the existence of the USA – the Puritans and Pilgrims believed that only apart from Great Britain, could they build a MORAL SOCIETY, according to the Law of God!

      Matt, did you REALLY learn the lessons taught you when you became Orthodox, or was it all about how many prostrations before the icons guaranteed a ‘more orthodox than the Phanar’ mindset?

      You talk as if the entire edifice of Western culture, including its science, IQ, literature, painting, architecture, music, etc. EVEN WHEN SUFFUSED WITH THE ERROR OF THE FILIOQUIST/AUGUSTINIAN heresy, is no better (or worse) than teh Taco Stand people who ARE an ontological threat and a racial menace to ‘US and OUR Posterity’?

      Dammit man, you sound like some racial egalitarian, whose bullshirt has been the common coin of the last seventy years, that BROUGHT US TO THIS INVASION OF EUROPE BY THE UNWASHED HORDES!

    • Trump IS Hitler

      I find it sad that the Orthodox harp on the filioque in the face of what is happening to European people. The only word to describe it is “pharisaical”. The few Orthodox ideologues I have talked to uniformly view Catholics as quasi-subhuman – all ostensibly because of the filioque. They have all said that Muslims are closer to Christ than Catholics. Give me a break. The Orthodox have a legitimate political grudge against the Papacy and they use a theological mantle to nurse and validate that grudge against Christian principles of brotherhood and forgiveness. Not one Catholic in 10,000 knows anything about the filioque and wouldn’t give a damn or even notice if it was stripped out of the Creed tomorrow. Now I know that fact reflects more on the character of Catholic catechism than it does on the significance of the filioque (to theologians, at least), and I’m ready to chuck the pope out the window and filioque too, and I would, if only the Orthodox that I encounter were not such raging, autistic bigots filled with a burning hatred for the long-lost other half of their Church.

    • Our project 100% welcomes and supports Traditionalist Catholics. Orthodox and Catholics obviously have theological and political differences which preclude reunification at the current time. But that’s about all it does.

      It doesn’t preclude the good ecumenism we’re all called to do.

      It doesn’t require us to be at each others’ throats or refusing to politically cooperate when our common enemy has us cornered and humiliated.

    • Fr. John+

      And I would agree with that. But the current Roman pontiff manifestly denies that the Jews are not our common enemy. So, what do we make of that? St. Theodosius shows the way:

      “Live in peace with your enemies, but only with your Personal Enemies, and NOT the ENEMIES OF GOD.” – St. Theosodius of the Kiev Caves Lavra

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Visited the caves a couple months ago, going again in April. A wonderful, blessed place!

    • Fr. John+

      Wow. I can only dream of visiting Russia, Mt. Athos, etc. at this point in my working career.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Never been to Athos, but visited Moscow before I became Orthodox, so didn’t enjoy as much as I could have. But I do love the Lavra.

    • Fr. John+

      As a former RC, I can say quite clearly that Rome is NOT ‘our’ Church, or even ‘THE’ Church. Schism of over 1000 years duration, does not a living body make. And the Filioque aberration is just ONE issue, that Rome had TWO ‘infallible’ councils to fix, and DIDN’T. As Dr. Farrell so poignantly noted, (using Anglican formularies to give added joust to the jibe) “”The filioque is the outward, efficacious, and visible symbol of an inward and metaphysical depravity.”

      You say: “Not one Catholic in 10,000 knows anything about the filioque and wouldn’t give a damn or even notice if it was stripped out of the Creed tomorrow.”

      But the hierarchy, (now under a confirmed Marxist metrosexual) doesn’t… So, to quote Christ, ‘Your guilt remains.”

      Rome needs to repent, not just ‘co-exist.’

    • By your definition of Orthodoxy, I am not Orthodox.

      I am an utterly conventional Orthodox Christian who just happens to be up against the recent anti-White hysteria sweeping the clergy.

      By your definition of Orthodoxy, I am not Orthodox.

      If somebody’s breaking into my home, I don’t need to crack open the genealogy to confirm that belong to one of the lost tribes of Israel in order to justify defending myself and my family. This is only tangentially theological, in that one has a stewardly Christian duty to defend his family and folk.

      By your definition of Orthodoxy, I am not Orthodox.

      I don’t believe White folks have a special covenant. I do not believe I am theologically superior to anybody on account of my racial inheritance. I’m quite proud of it, just as I am my family. But neither my family nor my folk are Chosen.

      By your definition of Orthodoxy, I am not Orthodox.

      God didn’t choose me. I’m striving daily to choose Him. I consider the notion that Orthodoxy favors (or disfavors) White folks incompatible with the catholicity of the Church demanded by the Nicene Creed.

      By your definition of Orthodoxy, I am not Orthodox.

    • Fr. John+

      NO, Matt. I’m not calling you, ‘not Orthodox.’ I am questioning your holding to views that are diametrically opposed to the reality- the PRAXIS of Orthdoxy in Eastern Europe- espeicially in those Eastern European countries, that for millennia, were the MODEL STATES that lived in the backyard of Racial and Religious ‘multiculturalism,’ for CENTURIES.

      Your more recent posts exhibit ideological characteristics that do not mesh with the historical appraisal of what a European was, how a European viewed the ‘Other’ and the pre-Schism mindset that said, the “Ecumene” was the ‘inhabited world of the Roman Empire.’ that is my concern. My pointing out things that others have ‘labelled’ does not mean that I hold to the theologies of those ‘labels’- rather, they iterate a TRUTH that the Orthodox had NEVER had to face in the West, until Roman models of thought, CORRUPTED their Orthodoxy. (One things of Peter the not-so-Great, and Catherine, and how they influenced Russia badly, for instance…)

      That last quote (the one about the boundaries of the Ecumene) comes directly from Pomazansky’s Dogmatic Theology! If that sounds like CI stuff, that’s not my fault, it’s merely the most current definition of what the ‘Ecumene’ means, today…. I’m not making this stuff up. I merely point out that you converted to a FORM of Orthodoxy, that may (or may NOT) be valid, because the hierarchy quite possibly departed from the consensus patrum, decades earlier! If the SCOBA-dox (many of whom are not Orthodox, when viewed from their ‘ecumenical’ stances, their Novus Ordo Calendricalism, their not having beards, their pro-gay/abort/women’s ordination stances, etc., etc. etc.) are your teachers, then perhaps you are not fully formed in your catechesis, and still hold to Western/rationalist views on a whole host of subjects, that you have yet to work your way through…. that’s all I was saying. But one has to admit, an Orthodox Christian seems to the Western bigot, to be reactionary, racist, exclusionary, and anti-[sic] semitic, right off the bat. I am merely trying to grasp how you could have written your most recent comments, and thought it was from within an Orthodox phronema.

      “I don’t believe White folks have a special covenant.”

      Facepalm. This is the apostate multiculturalist sin nature talking, Matt. This is what I mean. As needed corrective, may I ask….ever read Hilaire Belloc?

      Considered (along with Chesterton) to be the most cogent expositors of catholic thought, prior to Vatican II, his quote was one that set the tone of all my subsequent research, as a young man.

      “Europe is the Faith; the Faith, Europe.”

      That pre-Schism Western Catholic mindset suffuses all the Fathers, all the Councils, all the actions of the West. Belloc just made a pithy saying, that’s all. But it’s true.

      Yet, even so, see below….

    • Trump IS Hitler

      Yep. And it’s important to point out explicitly here that we are talking about rhetorical tactics, not dialectical truth (which is what your wheelchair example demonstrates.) Sometimes a dialectical win results in a rhetorical (and thus political) loss.

    • silviosilver ✓ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ ˢᵘᵖᵖᵒʳᵗᵉʳ

      Well said, Matt. HBD can be used to open some eyes, though, so I wouldn’t neglect it entirely. Whites are being attacked as the cause of non-white failure, so it’s obviously fair for us to point out that the real causes of differences in group outcomes are related to hereditary racial differences. Policies based on racial realism (could they be instituted) would not only relieve some of the burden on whites, but the realization that whites would be better off without other races can itself can cause some whites — clearly far from all whites — to value their own racial identity more highly than they otherwise would. There’s a fine line between this and vulgar supremacism, but it’s worth cautiously and responsibly pursuing nonetheless. Under no circumstances should white rights and interests be portrayed as resting on this position, however.

  • Shotgun

    White dissident rightists are the *real* Shadow People, Kasich!

  • AnAnon

    There are five billion people on planet earth in worse shape than mexicans in mexico, so anyone who truly believes that they need our help has to give everything we have away to everyone else. I doubt that Kasich genuinely believes that. He is bought and paid for, and the elites want more cheap labor, however they can get it(not to mention their enmity towards us). As far as the voters who signal that they believe in it, that’s all that is: signaling. When its their neighborhood conditions suddenly change, as I think one alt-right troller revealed when he was going around asking people to sign a petition for more syrians, and then another to agree to house a syrian in their own home.

  • Lol why are you wasting time on an article on john Kasich as if his political platform deserves to be taken seriously?

  • J.j. Cintia

    White Supremacy is a necessary condition of Western Civilization. These oligarchs are deluded if they believe they will retain any power without the technological power of the West. Without us, their brown pets will simply toss them into a pot and cook them for dinner when the food runs out. They are the Soylent Green in their mystical false rainbow of stupidity. Can’t we all just get along? No. Read some history. This World is a Hierarchy, a Food Chain. Someone has to be on top, and it happens to be us. No one else has demonstrated the ability to do so without disastrous results. To stay on top, we must deny the others the benefits of our superior technology. Let them suffer the pains of this world. We owe them nothing. They have said they want to kill us and replace us. Let them starve on an arid plain. I care nothing for savages and scum.

    • We tried white supremacist imperium. I’ll see your cynical worldview and raise you one. It’s incredibly difficult for a man to truly dominate another without succumbing to the temptation to **** his prize. Half of the humans alive today are the product of racial admixture in the wake of white supremacist victory.

      If Whites must dominate to survive, then let it be a moral imperium of universal nationalism and mutual respect.

    • Shotgun

      Well, the modernized, secular imperium failed miserably, but that’s no skin off the back of Christendom.

    • Fr. John+

      Exactly. This seems to be the point that Matt P. doesn’t get- that the Western perversion of Christendom, is somehow ‘White Culture’ purified and reified, without alloy. It isn’t… but it points the way, in a fashion and with an intensity that is clearly hypostatically joined with the Holy Spirit indwelling HIS people [Matt. 1:21] in a way, that NO OTHER CULTURE can ever claim patrimony.

      And, in that fashion, and with that insight, one can- nay, must say, White/European Culture IS superior, just as the saints in their divinized bodies, are ‘superior’ to the sinners around them; not through any merit of their own (Eph. 2:8,9) but because Christ has INCARNATED Himself as one of Adam’s sons. And only Adam’s sons and daughters are going to inherit the Kingdom, prepared before the foundation of the world….etc.

    • Shotgun

      I don’t like saying it’s the “culture” that’s superior. Many of the rear-guard conservatives tried that route.

      When a “culture” is superior, then what’s really superior are a series of actions, acts, and attitudes, and anyone who has them can be, likewise, superior.

      …it’s a sly way to try and avoid having to say an actual *people* are superior to another.

    • Fr. John+

      Well, I don’t think you can accuse me of doing ‘that,’ Shotgun! LOL

  • Shotgun

    It’s ok to think your ideals are superior to everyone else’s as long as you don’t think your family or race are superior to everyone else.

    • Fr. John+

      Then what do you make of the Biblical injunctions, that say ‘YOU ONLY of all the families of the Earth, have I known’?

      Come on, Shotgun, think through this. Which race has given the world EVERY SINGLE BENEFIT, and CULTURAL ADVANCEMENT, as well as been the BODY OF CHRIST for over 20 centuries?

      If that is not proof of election, predestination, and Divine Favor, then what is? Superiority is the corrollary of St. Paul’s dictum in Rom. 12:3.

      As a person with Scandinavian Jante self-abasement as the ‘norm,’ to think of one’s self, LESS that one ought, as well… is sin.

      Better to readily acknowledge that you are God’s Elect, and work to ‘make one’s calling and election SURE’ (not, as some assume, ‘truth verified’… as if God were a liar), that to presume you AREN’T, and do nothing, thereby conforming the latter premise!
