Open Borders for Thee, Orange Alert for Me

Tucker Carlson Tonight
On Monday evening, I joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the Honduran “caravan” of “refugees” marching relentlessly toward the Rio Grande, and express check-in to the United States – a scenario almost eerily identical to that in Jean Raspail’s novel The Camp of the Saints. I see that, by even referencing that book, I’ve driven the totalitarian Tweeters of Media Matters bonkers. Oh, and the Media-ite know-nothings, too, who seem to think M Raspail’s story is about “white genocide“.
Which ties in to my subsequent point – about the left’s determination to dictate the bounds of public discourse. I very much doubt whether Andrew Lawrence or Media-ite or the other would-be book-banners have read a word of Raspail – and yet they’re behaving exactly as the French left do in his novel. Which suggests that, whether “racist” or not, Raspail had a shrewder grasp of them than they do of him. If you’re going to get the vapors about literary fiction, it wouldn’t hurt to crack open a book once in a while. Click below to watch:
