Speaking to the press outside the U.S. Capitol grounds, Senator Charles Schumer declared, “Now more than ever, we’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to. The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants—(and help them) get a path to citizenship — for all 11 million, or however many undocumented immigrants.” What Senator Schumer conveniently failed to address is how we got to this point.
In today’s world, marriage and family formation have been suppressed by economic stresses and cultural changes. Possibly worst of all, cultural change advocated by the left, has denigrated the ideas of wife and mother for women and husband and provider for men. (Women and men have been told that it’s empowering to stay single. Better to be a corporate executive than create a family.)
Claims of overpopulation and associated environmental destruction have been aimed at the American populace. There are claims that having kids destroys the environment and that abortion is a moral good. (In many colleges and universities, young women outnumber young men. The emphasis is on career building while marriage and family formation if discussed at all, is ridiculed.
Politicians of the left ignore and suppress the fact that government tax and regulatory policy have damaged marriage and family formation – and have even been the driving force behind massive homelessness and crime. Unlike, Hungary, where marriage and family formation are promoted by their government, America’s leftist politicians discount the importance of marriage and family formation. As Schumer implies, who cares about the American family. We can just replace it with illegal immigrants who are more easily controlled (and much more likely to vote Democrat.)
The mask is now fully off. Those politicians who laughed at the criticisms of a great replacement are now openly advocating for the great replacement. By the way, the great replacement isn’t just an American problem. All of the previously successful Western societies are being flooded with illegal immigrants who all too often seek welfare benefits rather than the opportunity for productive work.
The Schumer great replacement thinking isn’t exactly a Democrat problem only. Far too many Republican politicians have stayed silent – or promoted the illegal immigration invasion. Apparently, the policies that would enhance America’s citizenry aren’t that important because the growth of the native population would refute the claim for population replacement.
I wonder, do any politicians on either side of the aisle actually understand the population and repopulation mess they have created? Do they really want to solve it? Frankly, our political class is taking the easy way out by just opening the borders. (However, it is not so easy to create a successful society. The Democrat run cities attest to that.)
Winston Churchill once said that the problem with socialism is the equal sharing of misery. Schumer and the Democrats think they can duck the misery created for Americans by importing replacement populations. They are wrong.
