One of them, predictably, asked me:
"And you hate them [Muslims] so much you dont think they have a right to live next to you?"
This analogy, and sarcasm, went right over their pointy little heads, because the other one at once piped up:
"Lol because we support immigration, we hate Americans (immigrants for the most part) around us. Bahaha. You are an idiot."
And the second one, at least, insists that he's a libertarian.
In the same thread, one of them told me that this country was founded by all kinds of people from everywhere. I answered, no, it was founded basically by a bunch of Brits, migrating from Britain to the colonies of Britain. Then they headed for Wikipedia and lectured me on the fact that there were some Dutch and Swedes, etc. here, too.
All this is in aid of their delusion that the Magic Dirt of America will turn any rag tag and bobtail into a free-market constitutionalist when he steps off the boat, or plane.
But no, oddly enough, there's a correlation between what kind of people live in a country and the qualities of that country. The Brits who colonized New Zealand, for example, went right on being Brits and behaving like Brits. They didn't turn into Maoris. Now, think about what the area now called the United States was like before 1492, and ask yourself if immigration had any effect on it. Demography is destiny. At Unz Review [link], John Derbyshire elaborates on that.
