It’s finally happened.
A unilateral declaration of amnesty for “some” of the USA’s teeming millions of illegals, courtesy of B.H. Obama, acting alone but with many accessories before the fact.
Pat Buchanan writes:
[At times like this,] we seem less a nation than some mammoth Mall of America. An economy, but not a country.
Running in 2008, Obama said he intended to become a “transformational president.” With this decision [to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants], he succeeds. He has accelerated and ensured the remaking of America. Now when the wives and children of the illegals arrive, and their extended families apply for and receive visas, and bring their wives and children, we will become the Third World country of Obama’s dream, no more a Western nation.
But then the community organizer did not much like that old America.
Buchanan is right. It really does come down to this. No other analysis is ultimately needed. (If you want analysis, see Brett Stevens’ “Democracy Has Failed” published today.)
Obama also knows there will be a multiplier effect as Steve Sailer points out:
How is officially rewarding illegal alien parents for having produced anchor babies going to discourage the production of future anchor babies?
But Steve, (we might say), of course Obama wants to encourage the production of future anchor babies. Obama’s is a war against the Core America.
“There is no core of America,” we hear. Of course, at some level all of us know that there is, just as there is an enthnocultural-core to every nation. No, it’s not as a “black or white” issue (to use a particularly unuseful analogy for this case) but more of a “core vs. fringe” one. Steve Sailer’s reconceptualization of the Democratic Party, as it exists in this century, as “a party of and for the Fringe(s) against the Core” is instructive here.

[E]ach state has a “core” population that gives its character to the state. For the United States, it is the White Anglo Saxon Protestant founding population that answered Samuel Huntington’s question, Who Are We?, with the larger European population assimilating into this basic type.
Obama’s amnesty represents something rarely seen – a formal acknowledgement that the “state” is turning against the “nation.”
