When we consider the lie that America is a nation of immigrants, the really important question to ask is: how does this lie serve the regime? What’s the instrumental purpose of this lie? And I think, that, if we inquire a bit, it’s political purpose is clear. If we’re a nation of immigrants, fundamentally, then we are wrong not to just throw open the door. We’d be violating our most sacred and eternal traditions not to do that. If you don’t want to do that, you’re not just a bigot, you’re not just a racist, but you’re fundamentally anti-American in some way.

By contrast, David Azerrad said in a recent speech: “There is simply no precedent in human history for sovereign states voluntarily importing into their homelands untold millions of people of different colors, creeds, and cultures for decades on end. This is what tyrants do to conquer a broken people, to pacify them. It is not something that the natives willfully do to themselves.”...

Even during the last century, when we have had very historically high levels of immigration, we’ve never had higher than about a 15% immigrant population.... The 1970 census most closely reflects the demographics of the population just before Hart-Celler, the 1965 Immigration Act, took full effect on America. Essentially, the overwhelming majority of people in America 1970 were white or African-American....

... we did not begin as a nation of immigrants. We began as a nation of settlers.... The pilgrims, when they showed up at Plymouth Rock, were not looking to join the existing Native American society. They were looking to build their own city upon a hill.... They came to build as pioneers of a new society, not to adapt to an existing one. And more or less, this theme continues, though it gets more and more mixed, until about 1890....

We weren’t a nation of immigrants. We were a nation with immigrants. And that, I think, is a very crucial distinction....

But we didn’t really become, “a nation of immigrants,” until the Democrats needed us to be for their electoral strategy....

So, they’ve used the idea of “a nation of immigrants” to justify seizing power. And now they have that power, they are using it to remove the statues, the memorials, our history, and invent their own history of America, a false and simplistic tale of oppressors and oppressees...
