WorldNetDaily's Vox Day uses his latest column to go on a racially charged rant: There's no such thing as the American “melting pot,” we should all stay in our little cultural enclaves, and whites should boot the brown people out of the country and “reclaim their traditional white Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture.”
The justification Day provides for his little tirade is a videotaped speech by a Hispanic Los Angeles high school social studies teacher on a tirade of his own about “frail, racist, white people” who want to keep Hispanics out of the country. Day uses the video to claim that “Mexicans and other third-world immigrants” are an “occupying power” aiming to “destabilize and destroy” this country by “settl[ing] a foreign people in its midst.”
Day then claims, “There is, quite simply, no such thing as human equality in any material sense,” citing “the latest genetic research on potential Neanderthal genes found in humans of non-African descent,” which “suggest that it is not entirely accurate to even assert that homo sapiens is not divided into various subspecies.” He adds, “Basing immigration policy on the idea of the melting pot is about as rational as setting foreign policy on the basis of the example set by the United Federation of Planets in Star Trek.”
Day seems proud to note that “from the mid-17th century to the mid-19th century, the New England states had almost no immigration for 200 years” (and “when the Irish did finally come to America, they were fewer, more culturally similar, and they came in a more gradual manner from farther away”). Day then declares that those glory days can be restored if Americans “can find the courage” to engage in ethnic cleansing and “expel” various ethnic minorities:
If Americans can find the courage to consciously reject the myth of the melting pot and expel the Mexicans from the American Southwest, the Arabs from Detroit and the Somalis from Minneapolis, they can reclaim their traditional white Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture. This is highly improbable because so many descendants of that culture have rejected it in favor of the vibrancy of diversity while those who haven't are far too frightened of criticism and social rejection to even articulate their thoughts.
Alas, Day laments, there will only be “conflict avoidance”:
White Americans will continue to vote with their feet, retreating slowly but continuously before the inexorable wave of migrationary expansion. Encouraged by the frailty of American society and the fragility of myth-based American political culture, what are still currently the fringe views of the Aztlan revolutionaries will rapidly become the mainstream opinion of Mexican irredentists in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada.
It's worth mentioning that Day (real name Theodore Beale) has apparently undertaken his own “retreat”: as of 2007 he lived in Italy. His father, by the way, is a Minnesota businessman and early investor in WorldNetDaily who decided he had the legal right not to pay taxes, was charged with tax evasion, then decided to go on the lam rather than face trial. Fourteen months later, he was captured; in 2008, he was found guilty and sentenced to 11 years in prison.
It's also worth noting that in 2006, in devising ways to remove illegal immigrants from the U.S., Day took inspiration from the Nazis: “If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not integrated into American society.” That was too crazy even for WND, which scrubbed it off its website.
Day perhaps more succinctly sums up this whole subject -- not to mention his hostility to minorities -- on his own blog: “If you're dumb enough to let tens of millions of Mexicans in, you can hardly be shocked when they decide they want independence.”
