I came across this sorry effort by Dennis Prager to shoehorn brotherhood sunshine up the asses of National Review readers. Like we don’t know what he’s doing. Roy Edroso will tell you, here, how rightbloggers were totally! right on! when NR’s John Derbyshire posted his kamikaze ‘black people’ screed. Now that Derb’s been canned, the adults at Review are sober, glum, taking of stock, re-orienting their horizons, and doing whatever it is geniuses do after one of them dons a monogrammed Klan robe at an Easter party.
Dennis has decided to bring some ‘hey buddies!’ to the gloomfest. He asks: Who’s the nicest, friendliest, race-lovin’est country in the history of all planets? Can you possibly guess? Silly . . it’s America!
In light of the tragic killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin — and the manufactured hysteria surrounding it — one thing needs to be stated as clearly and as often as possible: The United States is the least racist and least xenophobic country in the world. Foreigners of every race, ethnicity, and religion know this.
You see where Dennis is heading. This social ruckus isn’t about George Zimmerman hawking and then reflexively killing a black kid. Derb is no life-long racist who finally flashed us the Brit-cracker full monty. These clashes are merely media spats. And they disappear when you step back to view the proper landscape of America. You can’t spot such ‘racialist’ motes in the panorama that is the kindest, most trusting country that’s ever been.
Don’t believe me? Just listen to all the first-hand accounts of “Foreigners of every race, ethnicity, and religion” that Dennis interviews for the post. Do a little re-orienting of your own, libtards, in the faces of the frequently and heartily embraced huddled masses:
Black Africans know this. That is why so many seek to live in the United States. Decades ago, the number of black Africans who had immigrated . .
Rrright. Now watch:
Members of other races and nationalities know this. Even Muslim and Arab writers have noted that nowhere in the Arab or larger Muslim world does an Arab or any other Muslim have the individual rights . .
Just, hmm. Here they come:
And when any of these people come here, they are accepted as Americans the moment they identify as such. If someone — from anywhere, speaking any language . .
And one, now, from somewhere:
A third-generation Turkish-German, whose German is indistinguishable from the German spoken by an indigenous German, will still be regarded by most Germans as a Turk. The same holds true elsewhere in Europe . .
FROM SOMEWHERE . .
On the other hand, a first-generation Turkish American, who speaks English with a heavy Turkish accent, but who identifies as American, will be regarded . .
Dennis, a human? Please?
Xenophobic? It is probably fair to say that most Americans are xenophiles. Last week, in Tampa, I met a 40-year-old man who works at a cigar lounge and bar.
Whew! Finally, someone to speak to the snuggly immigrant experience. Do tell.
. . I commented on all the good-looking women who entered his establishment, and he told me that despite his low salary, that is precisely the reason he works there. They flock to him, he said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Because of my accent.” He was from Russia.
A Euro in a cigar lounge. Suck it, bitches. So ends Dennis’ evidence for: America deh greatest furriner and black-lovin’ nation ever Jesus made.
