Ann Coulter’s new book, “Adios, America!” is a collection and explanation of little-known facts about the cascading failures of U.S. immigration policy. But it is also more than that. The book tells the story of 50 years of cultural sabotage.
The title predicts the consequences of the 50 years of cultural and political folly set in motion by Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration “reform”: America is disappearing.
The replacement of the largely libertarian America of our fathers by a multicultural socialist utopia – the dream of three generations of Marxists and assorted progressives – is a fate and a destination now set on autopilot. Coulter lays it all out for all but the willfully blind to see.
Hopefully, and most likely, this will be Ann Coulter’s 11th straight best-seller – but, of course, this will not prevent the book being roundly condemned by the profiteers of open-borders idiocy at the Wall Street Journal, La Raza, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Republican National Committee.
Ann Coulter is no stranger to controversy, and she surely knows she will be called every vile name in the book when this book hits the bookstores next week. She may discover that being tagged as reactionary or fascist for advocating lower taxes, a balanced budget and free speech on college campuses is a cakewalk compared to what awaits her after exposing the soft underbelly of cultural “diversity.”
Coulter has collected a mountain of startling facts illustrating the radical changes wrought by Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration reform, a collection that should find its way to every patriot’s bookshelf. For example, did you know that post-1970 immigrants vote 4-to-1 for Democratic presidential candidates, a pattern that did not exist prior to that time? Could this have a bearing on Democrats’ enthusiasm for another massive influx engineered by one more massive amnesty?
But the ramifications of massive immigration go far beyond politics, and Coulter has cataloged some of the most significant:
- Did you know that it was not ISIS but Mexican drug cartels that pioneered the posting of beheading videos as a tool of intimidation?
- Did you know that before 1970, immigrants as a group had higher incomes and more education than native-born Americans? Can you guess how much that has changed?
- Did you know that immigrants since 1970 come from fewer countries and thus represent less diversity, not more, in our immigrant communities?
- Did you know that fully one-quarter of Mexico’s population now lives in the United States – and that they can still vote in Mexican elections?
It’s not well-known that Hispanic Americans are less likely to join the military than blacks or whites and that a majority of Hispanic troops are women. Is that a good reason to invite illegal aliens to join the military with the bribe of a path to citizenship? That has been proposed by some Republican members of Congress. Is this the beginning of “New Incentives for Diversity”?
But massive Hispanic immigration from Mexico and Latin America is only half the story. We now admit more immigrants from Nigeria than Britain, and a majority of refuges admitted since 2005 have been from Muslim nations. The Obama administration wants to bring up to 50,000 Syrian refugees to Detroit – so we can have a new state called Dearbornistan?
The real value of Ann Coulter’s book is that she shows this is nothing new. It did not start with Obama, and it will not end with Obama’s departure. It is part of a plan change America radically by transforming the culture. True, authentic “immigration reform” would begin with repeal of much of the 1965 laws engineered by Teddy Kennedy.
Thank you, Ann Coulter, for reminding us this is a long war with many fronts, most of them cultural, not political, and not an argument about border fences.
