The False Dichotomy Pervading the Immigration Debate

For the white man, no good deed goes unpunished. The left-wing media, through its critical coverage of European responses to immigration, seems intent on validating this maxim. The country currently facing scrutiny for not sufficiently rolling out the welcome mat for alien migrants is Germany.

Germany, like Sweden, has welcomed a tremendous number of asylum seekers, which places them ahead of all other Western countries. I think it goes without saying that their tolerance of outsiders easily out-does any non-Western country. I’m aware that nations such as Pakistan and Iran host more refugees than Western countries. However, there’s a significant difference between Iran and Pakistan accommodating fellow Middle Easterners or South Asians and Europeans welcoming visible minorities with disparate cultures and mindsets. Therefore, I would say that Germany practices greater tolerance than the aforementioned Eastern countries. Nevertheless, instances of xenophobia and violence have perturbed much of the established media. One asylum seeker from Somalia recalls numerous acts of racism, including having bananas thrown his way. 

Of course, civilized peoples should frown upon such barbaric behavior. Unfortunately, this article represents the false binary that frequently constricts immigration debates. One is either an open borders enthusiast or a raging bigot who throws bananas at black people; Europeans must welcome any and all outsiders, or they’re intolerant xenophobes responsible for thousands of Mediterranean deaths.

Such a dichotomy is patently false. Our blog has consistently advanced the notion that one can be civilized and tolerant towards other people; at the same time, strong boundaries must accompany such tolerance. European nations can treat immigrants already living within their lands with a certain dignity, while simultaneously securing their borders and ensuring that whites remain the majority. They can protect minorities from flagrant abuse and at the same time firmly reject multiculturalism. 

Liberals do not have a monopoly on tolerance and civilized behavior, and pro-white conservatives are perfectly capable of practicing these virtues. Indeed, preserving white majorities – and saving the Western world from its own follies – depends on changing the terms of the immigration and multiculturalism debate. 

It’s time to abolish this foolish dichotomy that’s polluting discussions surrounding immigration and diversity management.

    This false dichotomy no longer applies in Britain, as of about 5 years ago. In the run up to the 2010 general election, labour prime minister Gordon Brown was caught on a microphone calling an elderly woman he had just met a bigot for raising concerns about immigration. This was no doubt revealing but he had to humble himself and make a hasty apology to her. After labour, who had presided over more than a decade of unprecedented mass immigration, lost the election, they decided to change tact and admitted that they had got their approach to immigration wrong and that people had legitimate concerns about immigration. At the same time, there were speeches by David Cameron and Angela Merkel criticising multiculturalism. It was at that time that the immigration debate moved into the mainstream and gained some respectability. I think this can be partly credited to the rise of UKIP as a challenge to the establishment parties. It’s now widely accepted in British public life that you are not prima facie a bigot or racist for opposing or raising questions about mass immigration. However, UKIP are still disdained by liberals. – Steve

      Btw that is multiculturalism in its technical sense.

      Thanks for the comment; always nice to hear a perspective from the other side of the Atlantic.

      I agree that in Europe, the conversation about immigration has become more evolved. Nationalism also enjoys mainstream recognition, at least to an extent.

      However, at least here in North America, discussions about immigration inevitably conform to this toxic dichotomy. I guess the difference is that European countries don’t see themselves as “nations of immigrants,” which makes immigration restriction easier to sell.

        Yes, I think that’s an important factor. In Europe, we no doubt have the sense that this is our homeland, the land of our ancestors. In America, there is the feeling that white people are not indigenous and so others have an equal claim. Mexicans, in fact, being part white and part Amerindian, might be seen as having a greater claim on account of the part Amerindian, albeit native to central America.

        Great point. Take the Mexicanization of California, for example. Mexicans achieving demographic superiority is regarded as either karma for white theft or – from a less vindictive perspective – California returning to its rightful state.

    Also,the main parties now have manifesto promises that are designed to limit immigration or make the system more fair or privilege skilled workers. One still gets the impression that labour would not do much to reduce numbers, although the incumbent Conservative party has an ongoing pledge to reduce net migration ‘to the tens of thousands’. They totally failed to do this in the last parliament but may make more progress on it in this parliament, now they have a majority. The main focus at the moment is on the in/out EU referendum, which was also forced into the conservative manifesto by the threat of UKIP.
