Neo-con Bill Kristol: lazy, spoiled white-working-class should be replaced by immigrants


Dr. Eowyn 

Bill Kristol is the neo-conservative, i.e., warmonger for Israel, and the founder and editor at large of the political magazine The Weekly Standard.
kristol-betrayalKristol was hostile to Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy from the start, and would rather that Hillary Clinton be elected president. See:
Trump won in spite of Kristol’s opposition and machination, after which Kristol tweeted that he finds President Trump’s “America First” inaugural speech “vulgar” and “embarrassing”.
I used to think that what Trump’s opponents — Hillary, the Democratic Party, the Left, and fake conservatives like Bill Kristol — don’t get is that Trump won because he alone listened to and stood for America’s working class (see “2016 Revolt of the Deplorables: The Forgotten Working Class“). But I now take that back:
THEY DO KNOW, BUT THEY JUST DON’T CARE.
Last Tuesday night, February 7, 2017, Bill Kristol finally stripped away whatever deceptive mask he still wore when he called white working Americans “decadent, lazy and spoiled,” and applauded their replacement by immigrants.
The occasion was the American Enterprise Institute’s “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture” — a panel discussion on how Donald Trump’s rise relates to the white working class’s record low levels of labor-force participation, religiosity, and family formation, which panel participant Dr. Charles Murray had described in his 2012 book Coming Apart: The State of White America.
At one point in the discussion, Dr. Murray observed that the 2016 election revealed “a very strong disaffection by the white working class toward the new upper class, fueled in substantial part by the open contempt and disdain that the new upper class has for the working class and especially for the white working class.” That is why although Murray had never warmed to Donald Trump, the election did lead him to favor a restrictionist policy on low-skilled immigration — that people with low skills should be restricted from immigrating to the United States.
To that, Bill Kristol replied that he’d “actually sort of gone the opposite way on immigration,” meaning he favors unrestricted immigration for the low-skilled. Admitting that he is telling a truth about himself which he expects will make him a pariah, Kristol said:
“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in? Seriously, you can make the case—this is going on too long and this is too crazy, probably, and I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere [because] whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse.
After some awkward laughter from the audience, Kristol continued:
“You can make a case that America has been great because every—I think John Adams said this—basically if you’re a free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled—whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century.”
You can see and hear Kristol for yourself in this extended video of the American Enterprise Institute event. The video is set to begin at the 54:15 mark when Kristol began his controversial remarks:
In contrast, Dr. Murray was sympathetic to the white working class.
As Henry Wolff of American Renaissance points out, Murray reminded the panel that since immigrants concentrate in working-class areas, working-class Americans “bore the brunt of that kind of unasked-for ethnic heterogeneity,” while America’s elites “live in neighborhoods that are exactly the way they want them to be.” This disparity was the source of a “great deal of the anger” in the 2016 election. That is why, unlike Bill Kristol, Charles Murray supports limiting low-skilled immigration because:
“We as Americans owe an obligation to our fellow Americans . . . that should take priority over our obligation to the world’s population and globalization.”
“We as Americans owe an obligation to our fellow Americans” is, of course, precisely Donald Trump’s America First.

  2. Quote from Jerusalem Post Friday Feb. 10, 2017
    ““I don’t want to condemn Israel. There is a long history of Israel enduring condemnations and difficulties. I do not want to condemn Israel during my tenure. I understand Israel and respect Israel,” Trump said.

    “I want peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. And more than that, I think that peace will be excellent for Israel,” he said.
    “There might even be a possibility to achieve peace in a way that is larger than the Israeli-Palestinian peace,” said Trump. “I want both sides to behave in a reasonable manner ... we could have a good chance of that."

    Referencing the West Bank, he noted that there was a limited amount of land and that expanding the settlements ate away at the remaining territory.

    “I am not someone who believes that advancing settlements is good for peace. But we are looking at all different kinds of options,” Trump said.

    He underscored his desire to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    “Many people think that it is impossible," he said. "Many smart people close to me have argued that such agreement can’t be achieved. I don’t agree with them. I think we can reach an agreement and that we need to reach an agreement,” Trump said.

    Trump said that he has always liked Netanyahu and believes he acts in Israel’s best interest and wants peace.

    With regard to the possible relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said that he was still studying the matter.

    “It’s not an easy decision,” he said.

    In speaking of the agreement Iran reached with the six world powers during the Obama Administration, Trump said, the deal was a “disaster for Israel.””
    Just imagine if this land were being stolen from Trump's parking lot at one of his hotels. He would be indignant and call the police. His language would be totally different than the wishy washy tone of this propaganda article. How can Trump expect to broker a deal for peace with Palestine and Israel when he is so close to Israel but so far from Palestine? Palestine is always considered 100% at fault while Israel is 0% at fault. Trump is a bully, a hypocrite, a liar and a con artist. He talks out of both sides of his mouth. He respects his friends and cronies while disrespecting everyone else especially judges including the Mexican judge in Califonia on his Trump Univesity lawsuit. The above article was also pubished in Breitbart yesterday.

    1. Dr.Fetzer,you have done a considerable amount of work to focus in on who was responsible for the crimes that took place on 11th September 2001. Trump's admiration for Nethanjahu, probably the most dangerous leader of a nation in the world today, has to be a cause for alarm. Zionists historically, in order to achieve their aims, have manipulated the circumstances of the working class and used their discontent as a battering ram to ensure their own, i.e. Israeli, interests are catered for. Now you have a President who has given carte blanche to the Israelis to do as they please. Perhaps the election was manipulated after all, not by the Russians hacking the voting system as has previously, ridiculously been suggested, but by Zionist interests in the U.S. and in the world banking system, by instigating the financial collapse of 2008 and by the powerful lobbying of Zionists in the U.S. The subsequent discontent among the middle and working classes has led inevitably to the populist candidate winning the Presidential election but this populist candidate didn't nail his colours firmly to the mast regarding Israel until after the election. The Secretary of the Treasury is again 'Jewish', just like the last administration, and the one before it. The hypothesis that you stand over regarding September 11th 2001 and who was responsible and why, is convincing, yet Trump insists on keeping out Muslims. Perhaps you should try to find a way to let him know what really happened on that fateful day that changed the world forever and that Muslims of any hue had nothing to do with it. Maybe a travel ban would ensue that would be focused on the real culprits that are behind the mayhem of the last 16 years. Wishful thinking indeed!!! I think, my friends, you've been had. The Irish guy.

  3. Testimony of Restoration with the help of Martinez Lexie(Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR +18168926958)..

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I'm a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Renee Joan Rothell, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Martinez Lexie of ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ); that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy.. After that my loan application worth 78,000.00 USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958
