The Left devours itself

The long-anticipated breakdown of the Rainbow Coalition has begun on both sides of the Atlantic. Unfortunately, the White Minority has not really even begun to get into the game. But give them time.
I am a “lefty”. I have voted Labour all my life. I believe in the abolition of public schools and the inviolability of the NHS, and that the renewal of Trident is a vanity project. I believe the state must work to ensure equality of opportunity for all: women, the LBGT “community”, those with disabilities, those of minority cultures and ethnicities, and the working class. The Guardian has been my newspaper forever. I was glad to see the back of the Sun’s Page 3, and I believe there should be more all-women shortlists for parliamentary seats. I believe immigration is more of a positive force than a negative one.

However, you might be less certain about my status when I finish laying out my stall. Because I find myself holding a “transgressive” body of beliefs and doubts alongside my blue-chip leftwing ones that are liable to get me branded a misogynist, an Islamophobe and a Little Englander – at least by people on my Twitter feed, and others of my peer group.... My stance on these issues makes some people in my “tribe” very angry. It is the anger of the pure believer towards the apostate....

One very key element of the liberal left has long been under threat: its liberalism – that is, its willingness to debate with anything outside a narrow range of opinions within its own walls. And the more scary and incomprehensible the world becomes, the more debate is replaced by edict and prejudice: literally pre-judging. Identity politics is one of the most significant developments of the last 50 years, but it has led to nerves being exposed in a way they rarely were by economic issues. Because identity is less about politics and more about that most sensitive of human constructions, the protection of the self – both group and individual.

And the more it becomes about the protection of self, the less it becomes about the back and forth of rational argument. All the beliefs, opinions and doubts I hold are just that: they are ideas, not ironclad convictions. I am not certain about any of them, and am quite willing to change my mind, as I have done many times in the past. But I will not alter them if I am faced with invective rather than debate; in fact, they will become more entrenched.
Meanwhile, in America, the low-intensity power struggle between blacks and browns stretches from Compton, California to Baltimore, Maryland:
A plan that would dedicate two public high schools in suburban Washington to immigrants and students struggling with English is pitting black and Hispanic communities -– usually allies -- against one another.

The Prince George’s County, Md., chapter of the NAACP is strongly opposing the plan -- which would take effect next school year, and cover about 800 students having English language difficulties -- claiming it will pull resources from other students and unfairly redistribute them to Hispanic students. Some critics go so far as to compare the plan to segregation.

“It’s a slap in the face,” Bob Ross, president of the Prince George’s County branch of the NAACP, told FoxNews.com.

Ross believes the proposal to open two new schools violates the landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision that ruled separate schools for black and white students violated the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. 

“It risks turning Prince George’s County into a segregated school system,” Ross said, adding that he realizes the need for better education in the county but believes it should not come at the cost of existing students.

Latino advocacy group CASA de Maryland sees it differently. The group, which has pushed for the schools, argues that it’s not a violation of the Constitution because the schools are not mandatory and are being built to provide options to immigrants.
One thing that most white people have almost religiously failed to grasp is that Hispanics dislike blacks considerably more than whites do. They completely lack both white guilt and white paternalism, and they view blacks as their primary economic and political competition. As Hispanics begin to bring their numbers to bear on both fronts, they are going to ruthlessly crush the traditional sinecures that white liberals have carved out for their black supporters.

But in Chicago the first Mexican mayor soon to be just picked up a black endorsement from some warlord preacher, but then again that is because Emanuel and his mob purposely lynched the black politicians the last election in favor of the Elvish SJWs.

Every white gamma SJW is in a political coalition with colored racists, mentioning that because you have been looking for weaknesses in your quest to subdue the New Gamma Rule. Finally a conservative who realizes that the Gammas are not going to be convinced by endless essays of logic and reason, but by force against their weaknesses.

"Hispanics dislike blacks". This is not as iron-clad a rule for Hispanics from the Caribbean. In Orlando I had the opportunity to undergo a course of treatment in a clinic staffed entirely by Hispanics, mostly Puerto Ricans, serving Hispanics (and me, a Midwest Honkey). Many of these folks were African in appearance, but I could not discern any bright line distinctions in their interactions with each other. One young fellow there referred to me as " white" when we chatted, even though he appeared Meddeteran/European himself. It is also not unusual for young PR Hispanics to address one another as "Nigger" (I've prosecuted a number of crimes that took place in the Hispanic area of east Orlando). Likewise, my wife of 30 plus years is a native of an English Caribbean island with a large native white population. The race distinctions there between natives are also very complex because almost everyone has some African and Hispanic ancestry, and has close relations who appear " of color" by USA standards.

It's a similar story with Gamergate: while the good folks on Chan who kicked it off are largely reactionary, most gamers in the 18-30 range regard themselves as left leaning libertarians, in that they tend to have little to no regard for tradition (e.g. apathetic to something like gay marriage) and have little patience for being preached to about morality.

What I find curious is how infighting among an identity, whether it be ideology, race/ethnicity/nation is that there's a hell of a lot more bloodletting and very little mercy than fighting a traditional enemy. See: American Civil War, French revolution, Russian/Sino Commies. Hell, Brevik had a high kill count for a lone wolf.

"its liberalism – that is, its willingness to debate with anything outside a narrow range of opinions within its own walls."

That kind of old style liberalism in Britain has been dead for almost a century. What the writer means is that it used to be possible to carry on rational conversations within the narrow confines of British leftism, ie a social democrat could carry on a rational debate with a liberal democrat, but no one to the right of that "consensus" was given the time of day, much less given equal time and fair play within any kind of public debate, or frankly even be admitted to being a member of the human race, by the left. The left has had a long post-war monopoly over control of the Megaphone, and its nice to see them going after each other for a change. Hopefully their control of the Megaphone will be destroyed before we reach the Leftist Singularity.

Blogger Kentucky Packrat March 14, 2015 10:30 AM  

I believe in the abolition of public schools and the inviolability of the NHS

These two issues (schools and healthcare) point out the key sticking points of every socialist-leaning "jealous" leftist I've ever encountered. They never, ever want anyone else to have access to anything better than they can get with their own money (or, preferably, with yours).

Now, people will try to cover this with concern for the poor, but that's just a cover. Push them just a hair, and the jealousy angle comes clear. The "public school" quote is a key here. In England, "public schools" are really private schools not run by churches, and theoretically open to public admission. (They're equivalent to the tier 1 boarding schools here in the US.) British leftists hate the public schools because someone else (or their kids) are getting a better education than they/their kids get. Likewise, private hospitals let "the rich" get better medical care than the masses, and that just cannot be done.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, et. al, have been willing to ride the Democratic train in the US, because they too are willing to put up with blacks not advancing if whites "get what's coming to them", and blacks continue to ride the welfare train.

US Hispanics aren't willing to be satisfied with sticking it to the man; they want to advance. The liberals in these groups tend to be "greedy" rather than "jealous"; they want more instead of caring particularly that others get less. (Not completely, I know, but work with me here.)

As long as the government trough was filling, the greedy and the jealous could make common cause. Now, the benefits the jealous get prevent the greedy from getting what they want, and the greedy are provoking the jealous (they're getting stuff we can't ask for). As Uncle Sugar keeps running out of money to throw around, this will just get worse.

I've worked for years around Blacks and Mexicans. Mexicans hate the Blacks for many reasons......they're lazy, they do drugs, they're thieves. I work in construction and there are only a few black guys who will actually work. Your average Mexican will out work 3-4 black guys. I'm white, grew up around mexicans, speak fluent idiomatic Spanish, as married a black woman. So, I'm familiar with all three cultures. Anyone with any sense can see the implosion of black society. Here in Texas, blacks are being pushed out of neighborhoods and the Hispanics are colonizing. They literally call blacks animales, and they actually have more guns than the blacks. What I've noticed over the years is that the blacks make a lot of threat gestures, whereas the Hispanics will quietly bury the problem. Literally. They don't trust the police to take care of their problems. So they become "los desparacidos". You know it as the disappeared. One culture is vibrant, the other is dying. You see, they view blacks as problematic dogs. Everyone knows what happens. They say they went to Dallas to get rich. Just a viewpoint from the ground here in Texas. I'll say this.....black guys from the country will work. The city guys won't. They just want to drink and deal drugs.

A quote from Robert Heinlein is relevant here:

Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Anonymous Red Comet March 14, 2015 12:04 PM  

Mexico, Central, and South America keep racial peace by promoting national identity and because most of the people identify themselves as Mestizos.

The Mestizos are a mixed race of European, native, and a small amount from African slaves. This is broadly applied to everyone from the 90% white Mexican soap opera actor to the 90% native short brown dude that cuts grass in your subdivision.

Standard genetics still apply though. By this I mean Latin America's political, business, and entertainment classes are mostly (and often pure) European while the lower classes have the most native blood or are almost pure black.

Higher IQ will always be more successful than lower IQ. This is also why Asians slightly outperform whites in the US and why Jews become the richest and most successful people no matter where they move on the planet.

It's ironic that Marxist leftists always accuse their enemies of science denial when the class struggle they believe in is nothing but an illusion born from the denial of science behind IQ and genetics.

Well, in Mexico they call a bribe "la mordita". The little bite. The police belong to whoever is paying them.Your average Mexican knows better than involve them in their business. Here in the USA, the rich fight it out in the courts for the most part. In Mexico, assassination is an art form. And.......the newspapers and video show every bloody drop on the bodies. So, we have a large, growing culture that has been trained from infancy that killing is an everyday fact of life. One of the first things a vato from Mexico buys when he gets here is a gun. Then they buy a car. Gun first. And they smile. Most Hispanic families that I personally know have a strong patriarchal core. It's a major advantage. The Cartels aren't any different than any major international conglomerate. Yes, there's a Cartel presence here. They have different stickers in their back windows. The Dead Maria is a big one. So, let's see.......well armed Hispanics who kill as necessary, versus black street thugs with subnormal reasoning skills......that's the view from here

Most asian cultures are old and mostly been bureaucratic/fascism in nature with losers paying the price, so being patient has been ingrained in their makeup. btw, I am mostly talking about East Asians.

The leaders of the left just assume that if you believe state trumps individual in one area of life you're probably stupid enough to apply it universally. And that's generally true.

I can't see what the first "lefty" guy is so butthurt about. He wants a group of self-serving sociopaths to control his health and his education but not his religion or who gets to see his daughter naked in the changing rooms. Surely if you abdicate responsibility for your own life, those you put in charge get to decide what they decide on your behalf? Otherwise I would like a tax rebate for the public schooling and health care (I'm in Eurostan) I don't use and for all those social policies I don't support and still be a good "lefty".

I can't offer a large opinion here since I don't think the sample size is large enough. Most of the "hispanics" I work with are generally hard workers if short of initiative at times. That being said there have been one or two that were slackers and shown the door when they did not get the message. On the black side of the ledger, older blacks (including my step-father) were work horses you could depend on and took pride in their work. I don't see that in the younger ones who either think you are disrespecting them or are always trying to get away with something even if warned several times. I did just hire a woman who is black but looking at her application I get the impression she is a hard worker, has gone to school to improve herself and is reliable as the day is long. Her english is also excellent. I suspect she is not "african american" based on her features, english and attitude.

To those wondering where Putin is, he has been found, along with his baby momma girlfriend in a private clinic in either Switzerland or Northern Italy. Vlad is now a dad.

Just the reactions of the two groups to the news that two schools are planned for immigrants is very telling. The Hispanics see it as an opportunity to better themselves, the blacks see it through the glasses of race. That is why the Hispanics will come out on top in this whole mess. They might work with you for awhile, but if they see that opportunity to better themselves, they will drop you as an ally in a hot NYC minute.

When I was in high school back in 1972, even then it was interesting to watch the interplay between blacks, Hispanics and whites. Only thing the black and Hispanic girls could agree on as far as I could tell, was that white girls did NOT know how to fight. In their opinion, white girls wasted their time with the scratching, hair pulling and kicking, while the two other groups actually punched and beat their opponent down. Even at that time, these two ethnic groups had no respect for white girls. Unless a white girl did something socially egregious, the minority girls did not consider beating up white girls a worthwhile use of their time.

Wildclaw - when the new world (the Americas) was being colonized / settles, there were two very distinct populations hitting the beach. In North America it was largely family groups coming over as groups to settle, essentially as self-contained tribes. Think the Pilgrims and what-not. They kept their marriages within the tribe. There was a very distinct sense of "self" and "other." Central and South America was largely hit at first by missionaries and mercenaries, looking for converts and conquest. Think conquistadores looting for gold and slaves, with missions targeting the heathens, i.e., lots of single, ambitious young men. There was a LOT of hook-up / rapes / interbreeding / whatever you want to call it, because the only hotties around were the local chicks. So the sense of "tribe/self" and "other" that was formed is far different from the "one drop" rule in NA, because just about everyone is an ethnic mix to one degree or another.

It's long been my view that "liberal" is the most-abused word in politics. On the left, in particular.

It's a tribal signifier and little else. What little other meaning it holds is to signal a fixed laundry list of positions (see the quoted author's nonsense about the inviolable nature of the NHS, for example) which cannot be questioned if one seeks endorsement of your claim to the label.

Which, in itself, tells you all you need to know about people who stridently self-identify using this term.

What galls me about it is not that such deceptive labels abound in politics - that is, after all, the nature of the beast - but the enormity of historic ignorance it represents.

A liberal was one who questioned authority - all authority - rather than meekly submitting to it. Challenged power wherever it could be found. Thought for themselves, reasoned for themselves, reached their own conclusions and kept their own counsel.

Of course they were as rare in the hey day of the term as they are now, but at least there was a moment, a brief scintilla in time, when children were actually taught what the word means and why it is important, why it is so vital to be one.

I have to admit to appreciating the irony, that one must needs be educated about history in order to understand why being a (real) liberal is so vital to being a human being worthy of the qualifier "sapiens", but then I'm a lifelong sucker for irony.

OT: on another note, recent conversation here has had me thinking about the feelbad and how it maps to so many social disasters of our times. I've long been a fan of the work of Sniff n The Tears, as 70s/80s band whose lead singer and songwriter was something of a mad genius.The song "One Love" struck me in retrospect as being Red Pill before there was Red Pill. This is how it goes:

Got this monkey sittin right on your shoulder,
Do I respect your ideals?
Took out the reason from all that I told ya,
said "How does it feel?"


That's just the first verse. It's a guy, natch, complaining to/about his woman.

The second verse is more ironic political, but riffing on the theme nonetheless, and still topically evergreen:

News from the battle front stares out from my paper
People die for ideals
But I got a better way, dont tell 'em I told ya
I eat between meals


The third verse comes back strong, and applies not only to male/female relations, but to the whole gamut of ideological warfare swirling around us:

No harm believin what you want to believe in
No harm at all in all that
But I'd be deceivin myself to believe in
what you do, so what do I get?


That's real rabbit hunting stuff. The rabbit believe what they're told, what their authority (their feelings of belonging need) tells them to believe. But I can't do it, so I don't.

The mexicans were all business digging the forms out, getting a slab ready to pour, while the blacks were literally selling Crack to passersby. It's worse now than it used to be. Stereotypes are common wisdom, ignored at your peril.

Gary, it doesn't matter that Mexicans are hard workers. It doesnt matter that tamales and sopes taste good. They vote overwhelmingly for government intrusion, have no understanding of the philosophy behind the beliefs of the Founders, and pur country is bankrupt. Every immigrant that comes here is replacing an american who is here already. Theyre not an addition. Theyre a replacement.

TO THE SOUTHERNERS/MIDWESTERNERS/ALL NON NYERS AND CALIFORNERS: How bad is the mexican incadion where you are? If I callef some companies looking for estimates for work to be done on my house, new concrete, paving stones, or stucco etc, roughly what percentage would be Brown labor? Does it matter if its a city area versus rural?

Ive heard the city vs. rural argument before, but after working in Sag Harbor one summer, I call BS. Ecuadorians everywhere.

Matt I offered no real opinion aside from what I observed, also I used the term "hispanics" for good reason. I don't know where the majority of them come from.

I'm up here in the North East and the majority of people who walk off the street looking for jobs are either hispanic or black. I get very few white applying for jobs in this area. To be honest I do keep the riff raff out as best able (certain things I look for on applications, don't tell the boss!) but this just prevents trouble down the road.

Thing is, boys who are raised by women don't work well. There's something missing in them. They're not masculine. White, black, or brown, if a man wasn't part of their upbringing, they're damaged goods. Women produce feminised boys. As such, from a societal viewpoint, they ain't worth much. It's like they're raised on a mangina plantation. Trying to work one is hopeless. I really think that they aren't producing enough testosterone. Too flighty, amongst other problems. Hispanic boys from a Patriarchal background, well, they work just fine. They have an intact family unit that they're proud of. Smart old boys learn how to network in such situations. I can butcher a goat quicker than most. I was raised killing goats. It's a big deal at a barbacoa. See, I'm culturally fluent as well. Black guys won't learn Spanish. I've only known two who spoke Spanish in my 58 years of life. White kids aren't any better. The future belongs to hard working fertile folks.

I didn't know it was THAT high already. I found out because of a news story about a dozen high school students being arrested for sexual assault on campus. Since they didn't mention name or race, I assumed it meant they were black as per standard media procedure in this instances. Now I'm thinking they were Hispanic, and this is the new, improved, media procedure now.

My brother means it differently than you as far as I can tell. His narrative is that the oppression of the White Man, who has (in his mind) hoarded all the resources for himself and left the scraps to be fought over, is the cause of the animosity between Blacks and Hispanics.

Lost on him, of course, is that he's a white man who keeps all his resources to himself, gives nothing to charity, is happy to cheat or lie to get ahead if it suits him, and harbors a host of prejudices against Christians and Conservatives. In his own mind, he's a rational, objective, thoughtful and educated observer of the world who just calls it like it is...

I had a house built last year. I live in a fairly rural area outside a regional hub small city (25k in the city, 75k in the county).
Most of the work was done by white contractors using white labor. The bricklayer had whites doing the skilled labor, blacks working as hod carriers and shoveling sand for the cement, and a semi retarded Mexican doing scut work. Every thing else from framing to finish was done by whites. Even the guy who did the finishing dirt/drainage work used a couple of white guys for labor.

But I am opposed to making this advance by correspondly debasing any portion of the white race. As to trusting the negro of the southern states with the most sacred and responsible privilege - the right of suffrage- I should as soon think of elevating an Indian Chief to the Popedom of Rome. All advocates of giving suffrage to the southern negro should visit these these states and see for themselves. From the few northern papers we receive here I read good accounts of the industry and good conduct of the Freedman and of the happy working of the new order of things. I would not place too much reliance on these statements.I have travelled over a considerable portion of this State and of Louisiana, and have found no recognized system of labor. Planters are losing extensive and valuable crops because negros refuse to work. To deprive one of wage has no effect, so long as he gets enough to eat and drink.

Actually, I'm used as an interpreter. Don't hire anyone. Part of My gig is talking with the various workers for several different contractors. Once again, I just write about what I see happening. Most young white guys want an inside job. They sure as hell don't want to be out working on a new house in the hot sun. Now, I help different folks when they're looking for a crew. But these crews are part of the familia. They help me find work, too. Insofar as to loyalty, white folks have a bad habit of remembering who helps them. Hispanics don't. Black guys approach everything with a huge chip on their shoulder. Kinda hard to feel for someone who despises you. When I was growing up, white people didn't speak Spanish, really. I did, and so I was fortunate. I spent a lot of time and effort becoming fluent. Basically, most Mexicans just want a better future for their kids. Ever so often I have to talk to some recent arrivals about how they have to act here. In Mexico, women are basically property. That doesn't fly here. However, most have heard of feminists. So, I tell them that marriage here is taking a snake to their chest.....best be careful. I need to mention that a lot of the young white guys around here are tatted up speed freaks. Lots of conservative types here who don't want to see that.

Wives, kids and all, we might be talking about 3-400 people. These folks cooperate to survive. They help me get work, and the circle continues. Man, the drama I've seen with black workers is unreal. They deal drugs at work, and here's a big one, their baby mama's show up at a job looking for child support😂. This young black guy had actually gotten a job at the post office, but he had to wait 3 or 4 months to start, right? So, he was working on a black concrete crew. Running with some thugs that sure liked riding around in his new car. Okay, I show up at a job, fixing to start on a house, and this kid shows up with a shot up car, blood all over the passenger side and such. A real mess. He asks me what he should do. I asked him if the police were looking for him. Nope, he said. So, I told him to get to a detail shop to get the blood out before it dried. Turns out one of the thugs didn't want to pay for some fronted dope. The kid went off the deep end. I really don't need the drama in my life. Ivery worked for a black contractor who has no use for blacks. Seriously. Now he's a guy who's gonna get the most out of an economic opportunity, that's for sure. But he was exposed to successful rich people at an early age, and kept his mouth shut and learned a lot about money. A very rare sort, to be sure.

He was gonna be on the government title for a good ride. But he didn't have a father. I worked around some of his relatives. There are a few Black families around here that are very successful. But they don't act like black thugs either. They don't act entitled. Black UMC. Pleasant folks to deal with. You see, when I go on a job, and the familia is there, I eat lunch with them, jabbering away in Spanish. They hand me a hot pepper, and I wolf it down. They watch to see if I have tears in my eyes. They ask me what I think about some guy, and the price he wants to pay. So I tell them my opinion. Sometimes, we won't work for a guy. This one contractor had a bad reputation that I wasn't aware of. After he left, they told me he ripped some of their friends off. Okay, no dice. Insofar as to the black drama, it's pretty much a black thing. Nationwide, I'd say. They were never taught how to work, and they've never had positive male role models. I've worked all over as a plumber. From California to Florida. Different scenery, but folks are similar. The Black family really is in deep trouble. Lower class whites aren't doing any better. Women can't raise boys. Sure there are exceptions, but not many. Boys have to have a successful male presence. Plain fact. Feminists can rant and rave, and manginas can swoon, but that's irrelevant.

Wildclaw, my ex is a chronic depressive who became a Jehovah's Witness. Hard to describe all the whack things she came up with. I helped put her thru school. She had to go to UT for nursing. It was really something to see. As to what has happened to the black family, that's really simple. LTD and welfare. Here's a nasty little fact about black society. A lot of black women make a whole lot more money than the men. They went to college, and do okay. My ex was a registered respiratory therapist. When she wanted to become an RN, she had to completely start back all over in college. She had been out for 18 years, and the cutoff was 15 years. After it was all said and done, she didn't need a nasty plumber. Oh well.....after the divorce, she's been homeless twice. She won't get help. She will lose her nurses license if she goes on medications. Anyways, I got to see a lot in her family. She had two nieces. One started having kids at 14, the other at 16. Seriously.

This is real life, kiddos, not some classroom. Texas is a right to work state, thank God. I've seen it both ways. Hispanics will work for less money, that's true. However, they cooperate and pool their money amongst the familia. Everyone ends up okay. White folks insist on independence. Young black guys live in the moment. They don't understand saving their money. They get a few bucks, they go looking for some ho. I'm aware that most of you reading this are offended by this snapshot of reality.

It's hard work, no joke. Pick and shovel. If a white guy wanted a job on a crew like that, he has to speak some Spanish. I work by myself, don't like the drama of folks not showing up for work, etc. Once again, I'm just writing about what I see. I never see a white guy show up at a job looking for work.

They're not willing to stick around and work for 1.5X the minimum wage, and be shut out of the better paying work. They buy into the "go to college" crap or they move away. In many cases, their parents had moved away a few decades ago, when the Diversity tsunami hit. Aside from the crime and the gross incivility that the 3rd World brought, who wanted to send their daughter to school with the Diversity?

What Vox is saying though is true, there has been a simmering race war going on, blacks are losing. I also have seen it in construction, since I started in the high-end market 18 years ago, I can count on two hands the number of blacks in the industry; most of them were from the phone industry and created companies to take advantage of all the new tech, the other ones were Jamaican or African, no American blacks as laborers or tradesmen. As for women, in the actual trades there was only one.
The blacks have lost the battle on the streets and in many industries, it simply goes back to one question: Do you want to work?

Latigo please read my comments. I really go to some length to say essentially the same thing.

Plump Pleasant Plumber,
Yeah your right, I was partially responding to something someone else said. Should have addressed it differently.

Latigo you know how Hispanic crews are. They have zero respect for blacks. Here in Texas, there really aren't that many white guys in construction. I'm a plumber who works for different builders. The best way to get a job in construction is go to the jobsite and talk to folks. White guys don't do that. There's a real meth problem. Meth and facial tattoos seem to run together here. A banker comes by the job to see progress, yeppers, real impressed with that, I'll tell you. Huge number of young guys around here who have been raised by women. They lack testosterone. Sad, really. What you've reacted to here are some momas boys who understand nothing of what's going on in the labor market. Yeah, they hate on the Hispanics, but, really, that's meaningless.

The trades even semi technical (plumbing, fitting) or straight technical (electric) are seen as grunt work. Because you get dirty but mostly because contractors dont want to pay. Unions pop up (and eventually turn into bureaucratic corrupt nightmares) because contractors are greedy scumbags who want to pocket as much as they can get away with, and are able to do so thanks to cheap illegal labor.

Im eager to see how things play out when these illegals are grabted amnesty and have to pay taxes. Though im sure new programs will be put in place to make sure these illiterate beaners have it easy.

I've worked with Mexicans most of my life, and taught them math as well. My guess is that the 75th percentile, IQ-wise, of Mexicans beats the 90th percentile of Blacks and the 45th percentile of Whites. If the average or better Whites don't apply for a job and some fairly smart Mexicans do, the Mexicans get the job. Simply business. The social costs of the town turning into a barrio get passed on to others.

@Discard

I apologize if I misread you. With your "that's capitalism" comment, I supposed you where advocating illegal labor. From your last comment it is apparent you are aware of the problems and are not.
