Demographics Is Destiny


Pages: 1 2

Say that workers in factories were 40 percent less likely to vote your way and 80 percent more likely to disapprove of your core “Turkey Coconut Bouillon with Nutmeg and Omega 3″ agenda, while only 19 percent of unemployed workers who used to have jobs in factories vote against you and only 56 percent of them are against your core agenda– and they don’t even care much about it anymore because their lives have been turned upside-down and they’re not sure of anything anymore.

There’s an easy answer. Just start shutting down factories on any pretext. Accuse them of pollution, increase their costs, tax, inspect them to death, and do everything you can to transform the domestic working-class that used to be your base, before you went too far left, into unemployed men sitting bitterly drinking beer while wondering what happened to their country.

Suppose that your soup is called Barack Hussein Obama. In a 2008 taste test, 39 percent of working- class white men chose your soup. But in 2012, only 29 percent are willing to choose your soup. That’s a problem, when people choose their government… but not a problem when governments choose their people.

If working-class white men are a problem for you, then you have to make sure that a smaller percentage of your electorate consists of white men who haven’t gone to college.

Can’t win elections with your current agenda in a country with the current makeup? Dream big, plan even bigger. Drag everyone you can into college, import the right sort of immigrants, make divorce as common as possible, kill jobs. Don’t start now. Start doing it forty or fifty years ago. Turn Leave It to Beaver into Modern Family and suddenly the liberals will stop looking like commie egghead freaks and the conservatives will start looking like square robotic freaks who keep talking about someone they call “God,” something they call a “Traditional Family” and something they describe as “Jobs.”

Bertolt Brecht wrote, “Some party hack decreed that the people had lost the government’s confidence and could only regain it with redoubled effort. If that is the case, would it not be simpler if the government simply dissolved the people and elected another?”

Brecht’s sarcasm is now literal truth. Western governments are dissolving their peoples and electing other peoples in their place. Democracy allows peoples to elect governments, but power also allows governments to elect a people.

The left has decided that it can win the demographic Game of Thrones by changing the demographics. The left changes the terrain, while the right keeps trying to fight on the new terrain. And the only way to do that is by going to the left. The right still wins elections, but the left is winning the war for the future. It is shaping the electorate demographics that favor it. To win the future, it doesn’t have to win every election; all it has to do is keep changing the demographics until either the right cannot have any hope of winning any more or until the right is so far left that there no longer is anything that can be described as an opposition.

Demographics is destiny. The left is reshaping countries to match its demographic targets. It is turning nations into one great gerrymandered district composed of populations that are more likely to support it. It is doing this using immigration, economics, social policy and every tool at its disposal. And if conservatives don’t start understanding the demographic game of thrones, then they will lose the war.

    This is spot on. It is *possible* to manipulate the people into voting for you, but much easier to bring in more and more people likely to vote for you, no matter how bankrupt and discredited your ideology is.

    Research showed that some 80 percent of all immigrants in Norway vote for leftists, who are more likely to support generous welfare benefits. Since they are already in power they can cling to it forever by opening the borders – and they are doing just that.

    I guess you'll find the same phenomenon all over Europe and also in the USA.

    Barack Obama will take your tax dollars to finance a solar soup company and Michelle Obama will force feed you with “Turkey Coconut Bouillon with Nutmeg and Omega 3″.

  • Western Spirit

    We lost our money in the last great pillage of the American people. Now that I'm broke I'm still not going to vote for Obama and the Democrats.

    Suggesting Ann is racist is ignoring reality.

    We lost our money in the last great pillage of the American people. Now that I'm broke I'm still not going to vote for Obama and the Democrats.

    I think people who are new to this country have no allegiance to it and willingly suck it dry to their advantage.

      Hey, I agree with you 100%. I have seen the same phenomena here in Miami, were at least 60% of the population is Latino and vote Democrat. The first Cubans who came as refugees from Communism, were strong anti-communist and anti Democrats. Later migrations are filled with communist infiltrators. The same pattern can be observed in Nicaraguans, Venezuelans, etc. But then BOTH parties are responsible for our immigration mess. Ronald Reagan gave illegals amnesty in 1986, but failed to secure the border, and if he didn't do it, the later presidents saw no need to fix that problem.

      They come here because they don't like the corruption and lack of opportunity in their home country and then proceed to create their home country in their own neighborhoods here. Then they work to create their home country in the rest of the U.S. And then they complain about the corruption and lack of opportunity here.

    mr greenfield..you are one of the best essayist i
    have ever seen. supreme intellect.

    This is why I'm convinced those on the right must congregate into a select few states. Being spread out all over USA makes our votes and beliefs useless when matched up against liberal useful idiots and scheming sociopathic radical leftists with all the money and influence available to them. Some people think we can when by "waking up" people but there's too many people that will just refuse to come out of their bubble until the time some U.N. peacekeeper is corn holing their 80 pound starving body in a re-education camp.

    Hispanics tend to vote that way so do Asians. Indians the richest Asians may vote Democratic because the Hindu Religion can make one a pacifistic and the Indians that tend to be more non-Christians seen the Republicanism also as the party of Christians another reason why they vote Democratic

      Here's a thought – a dear friend, Hindu from India, went to graduate school in a very liberal state. I think that everything my friend knows about American politics was acquired there. Look at that demographic. Are Indians (mostly Hindu), mostly graduates of universities in liberal territory? OF course that fact that most of them spent time in ANY American university would tend to make this population liberal. But it would be interesting to know the facts on this.

    Depends on the state, actually in the south Republicans usually do better with whites with higher income. In Texas the higher income whites vote more republican. A lot of the Blue Collar Whites don't vote since both Republicans and Democratic flood the labor market with immigrants and Republicans and Democratics also outsourced jobs. Republicans usually get whites outside of Kentucky and West Virginia with some college to Ba while Dems get whites that are high school dropouts or have graduate degrees. I saw a chart and in the state of Texas whites under 30,000 voted Dem while Whites making 75,000 and above voted Republican.

    brilliantly succinct…

    though I would quibble with the idea that it is unforeseen by conservatives. My granny knew this stuff backwards and forwards when I was a kid.

    the truth is – we have not had the power. the best we've been able to do is find politicians who just cheated us a little or held the line. To be fair – anyone going up against the Left is likely to be borked… and if they invade your bedroom that does not count (but we have to pay to kill other people's babies…)

    one other point – they invent ideas – such as hating blacks … people fall for the nonsense … and then when they are through with the idea … then it's our fault. e.g. illegal migration. The whole point of it's racist to opposite is to assure that in the future it will be seen as racist to not pass out instant citizenship to any Democrat demographic…

    … but the Racist limitations on Cubans, Filipinos, and others likely to vote Republican… hey that will be our fault too.
