“My work is done”.
>> California is in the middle of a far-reaching demographic shift: Hispanics, who already constitute a majority of the states schoolchildren, will be a majority of its workforce and of its population in a few decades.
Hahaha... they won’t have any more clue as to how to run the place than did the white liberals they’re pushing out.
However, when they finally take over, at least hollowed-out Kalifornia’ll be nicely landscaped, stuccoed and painted. :-)
The funny thing about this story is that the writer seems genuinely surprised that moving millions of poor Mexicans into the state has made it more like Mexico, and less like California.
Ordinarily, a loving parent would struggle to retrieve an errant child from that which is destroying it. I see no evidence of that and can only conclude that the "parent" in this case is at least equally destructive as the child that it fathered. California must now be left to its own devices and those devices will likely bring its death. We are obligated as siblings to utter some comforting words as it is laid to rest. Perhaps Mexico would agree to receive the corpse.
The Country Club California Democrats don’t need a middle class. As a matter of fact, they’d like the middle class to leave California so there would be less traffic and fewer people on the beaches. They just need enough people to mow their lawns, do their laundry, etc.....
“Perhaps we should just give CA back to Mexico then militarize the border to prevent the cancer from spreading.”
Within 10 years, “we” are not going to be in a position to “give” anything.
Quite the contrary, California is going to go its own way as a part of “emerging Atzlan”.
This doesn’t bode well for Arizona and New Mexico, either. Consider that NM has already gone “minority-majority”. That is to say, “Anglos” are now a -minority- in New Mexico.
There is no way around the mathematics of this. Demography is destiny.
Remember Ann Lander’s “question” to women:
“Would you be better off with him, or withOUT him?”
Conservatives should start seriously considering the question:
“Would a traditional America be better off with California, or withOUT it?”
“unless Hispanics’ upward mobility improves”
I’ve read that in the second or third generation of Mexican immigrants, upward mobility and assimilation actually goes backward a little except for in one segment of the population: those who attended Catholic schools. The Catholic schools move the kids up and forward into mainstream America.
Not coincidentally, Obama wants to use Obamacare against the Catholic schools.
Mexicans are pro-family, hate gays, and want to work. If they are already in the gates, perhaps we can convert them and hoist the dems on their own sword?
We might as well cut our loses and sell Kalifornia. Of course we’ll need to be willing to prevent the spread of the Locust People or we’ll need to sell many more states in the future.
The big problem will come when the illegals are given citizenship and then their voting clout will force the US to open its borders completely and without restriction not only to Mexico but to every other country in the world and then America will be over as you know it without every firing a shot.
California is headed for Third World status.
The law of unintended consequences.
If a nation’s leftist government, say in Norway, invites so many Muslims in that its own people, the Norwegians, are marginalized, does anyone think that the Muslims would be so stupid as to continue with the stupid leftist policies that invited them in?
Heck no. The Muslims will oppress the Norwegians, institute Sharia law, and liberalism will have become a memory. They have no use for it.
I say that by comparison to California. Because stupid liberal leftists invited in unrestricted Mexican immigration, does this mean that the Mexicans they invited in are so stupid that they will continue doing the stupid, leftist things that Anglo Californians have done?
Fortunately for the US, unlike Muslims, Mexicans are not monolithic about *anything*. They cover the political spectrum from wildly leftist to wildly rightist, with lots of moderates in between.
The vast majority are at least nominally Catholic, and there are many more “firm” Catholics among these than there are among American Catholics.
What California has encouraged the rise of barrios, when ethnic Mexicans leave those enclaves, for the most part they become Americanized in a hurry. And many Mexicans are very hard working. And when you work hard, you are less inclined to appreciate the government taking away your money for frivolous things. Like leftist liberalism.
So what is the bottom line, here?
Right now liberal white leftists totally control the state. But when they have become the minority, I truly doubt that they will hold on to power. And what the ethnic Mexicans, legal and illegal, will do is a good question, one thing for certain is that it will not be to continue to stupidity of the liberal leftists.
It’s long but it’s a really good article. We are in trouble and there are specific things we could be doing to right the ship, but we aren’t doing them.
I’m blaming the liberal no nHispanics and all the apolitical, scared of PC non-Hispanics.
Goodbye, California, hello, third-world Banana Republic.
Let’s wall it off, give it back to the Mexicans, but make the Pelosis, Feinsteins, Boxers, Waxmans, Browns, and all the Hollywierd idiots stay there to reap the whirlwind of what they have sown.
I highly recommend that everyone read the original article. The author, Heather McDonald, is a conservative and gives a realistic view of how bad the situation is. She will be reviled by the Leftists but from my observations the article is accurate and maybe too optimistic.
You all act like it’s California’s fault.
It’s not. It’s yours. Whatever state you live in.
Our Southern border was erased. You did nothing.
Our state was the first to be invaded and colonized by millions of foreign nationals. You all yawned.
You blame the victims for this disaster in a way you would never blame, for example, New Yorkers for 9/11.
You signed a compact in 1787 to help us and preserve the union. Why are you reneging? Laziness? Cowardice? What is it?
You owe it to us to send in the army and the Marines.
You’re a bunch of deadbeat dads — you don’t WANT the responsibility, so you’re just denying its yours.
Oh, and you’re financial chumps, as well. You’re giving away the greatest state in the union. And ‘greatest’ is not debatable, if you’re talking in terms of income taxes paid, natural resources, minerals, oil, agriculture — whatever measure you got — California is the greatest.
Not only are you giving it away to a foreign nation, you’re doing it without even a shot being fired.
You’re contemptible chumps.

By 2020, white babies will be a minority in all of America. We are a generation behind California.
