In this latest edition of the Domain Query series, I answer an interesting set of points posed by reader Johnny in a comment on an unrelated post:
While I have come to conclude that Indian immigration to the US is a net negative (I used to think all skilled immigration that earns above the national average income is a plus as long as they aren’t Muslim terrorists), a lot of White Trashionalists have gone further.
The above article is pretty extreme, and goes too far. The author hates even ‘right wing’ Indians like Priti Patel and Nikki Haley, due to their support of Israel (as if almost 100% of white politicians don’t do the same). The author also conflates a lot of other things falsely, by saying that since India is the ‘rape capital of the world’, Indian immigration means tons of rapes in the US.
Muslim Pakistanis in Rotherham are one thing, but I don’t know of a single non-Muslim Indian in the West raping a woman here (and I doubt Indian men are strong enough to overpower a non-Indian woman in the first place). He also thinks that even elite tech Indians are 3 days away from shitting on the streets.
That, of course, goes too far. But I wanted your opinion on the article and comments for an accurate assessment of what is and is not valid. I believe that you are probably the most fairminded person on such topics.
White Trashionalists are the dregs of the white population for sure. No wonder the ‘community’ is 100% male and has a lot of gay men.
So I had a go at answering these points, at some length. There are three major issues to hit:
- Whether Priti Patel is a pleasant person to work for – my guess is, probably not, but I don’t have any direct evidence and I think that Mr. Langdon probably goes way too far in his screed;
- Whether the Israel Lobby has too much influence and power in Britain – in my view, they do, and that’s not a good thing, and Jews in Europe and the UK need to understand that they are wearing out their welcome very quickly, and they should apply their considerable energies and skills in making the great country of Israel even greater;
- Whether Indian immigration to the First World is a good thing – as far as I’m concerned, the answer is an unequivocal NO, but I provide more context and in a rather different tone from Mr. Langdon;
Here’s the podcast:
(Somewhat to my annoyance, the latest WordPress upgrade to 5.6 has borked the old embedding process for PodBean podcasts. Mind you, the old process wasn’t exactly brilliant, but the new process isn’t any better – or worse. It’s just different, therefore annoying. Hopefully WordPress implements a wrapper block for PodBean URLs eventually.)
Here are some other resources to read and consider on these three points:
I referenced an article about a civil servant who left the Home Office under a cloud due to his repeated rows with the Home Secretary, Ms Patel. He’s not the only one, as it turns out, and Ms Patel’s behaviour is cited as the reason why there is significant turnover at the top of the Home Office. Given the kinds of Swamp Creatures who inhabit those posts, that is not a Bad Thing at all in my view.
I talked at some length about Boris Berezovskiy, the Russian Jewish oligarch who basically said that every Jew’s first allegiance is to Israel. Here’s a long article about how one Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin – or, as we call him, the Neo-Tsar – rose to power, in which that specific point is raised repeatedly.
Mr. Langdon’s article references an article from The Guardian that says that rape is a runaway problem in India and it is the world’s most dangerous country for women. That is BALDERDASH. Here’s an article from a couple of years ago that puts India in its proper context. India is definitely not a good place for women, but it’s FAR from the worst.
Finally, with respect to the point that Johnny makes above about the implication that even India’s tech elites are just a few steps away from defecating in the streets… that actually isn’t so far-fetched. For reference, check out this lengthy article from Richard Grenier called “The Gandhi that Nobody Knows” – here is the money quote:
When Gandhi attended his first Indian National Congress he was most distressed at seeing the Hindus—not laborers but high-caste Hindus, civic leaders—defecating all over the place, as if to pay attention to where the feces fell was somehow unclean. (For, as V.S. Naipaul puts it, in a twisted Hindu way it is unclean to clean. It is unclean even to notice. “It was the business of the sweepers to remove excrement, and until the sweepers came, people were content to live in the midst of their own excrement.”)
Draw your own conclusions from that, really.
In summary, Mr. Langdon’s article does go too far in several areas. But SOME of what he says is indeed valid.
