— Richard Spencer is a threat Republicans must purge – THOMAS MCARDLE
http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/campaign/309227-richard-spencers-white-nationalists-are-a-threat-republicans-must
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But race is not why immigration – both legal and illegal — must be significantly reduced over the long term. A 44-page January 2014 report authored by the late Phyllis Schlafly and Eagle Forum, “How Mass (Legal) Immigration Dooms a Conservative Republican Party,” laid out what’s really at stake. “Immigrants and their children are more supportive of government expansion, Obamacare, affirmative action, gun control, greater environmental regulation, and of other issues championed by the Left,” Schlafly warned, buttressing the case with mounds of polling data. It’s not the color of their skin, but rather the content of their political creed.  Today, even the white Europeans Spencer romanticizes would, as new U.S. citizens, help their Mexican-American fellow immigrants elect liberal Democrats and impose lots more socialism on the Land of the Free. When President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1965 immigration act, a grinning Bobby and Teddy Kennedy at his side in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, he assured the nation it was “not a revolutionary bill.  It does not affect the lives of millions.”  Yet in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s combined, fewer than 7 million immigrants came to America; after the immigration act, from the ‘70s to today, 35 million arrived here, including nearly 14 million in the single decade from 2001 to 2010. Not only was it a revolution, it’s been the biggest voter recruitment drive for the Democratic Party in history. If Trump is to lead a successful counter-revolution and stop this ongoing disaster, he cannot be tainted by those falsely hailing him as an ethnic cleanser. Decades ago, William F. Buckley purged the Birchers and other genuine “deplorables” within conservatism so the right could rise to power. Trump, or his surrogates, are similarly going to have to purge Spencer and his minions – and do it before the TV cameras – if the new president is to keep his promise to regain control of who comes to and shapes America.)
