Bill Kristol Says ‘Lazy’ White Working Class Should Be Replaced By ‘New Americans’

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?” Kristol told author Charles Murray during an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute titled “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture.” Murray recently wrote a book, entitled “Coming Apart,” which focuses on the cultural separation between the wealthiest and most educated white Americans and the poorest and least educated white Americans.

Before delving into his theory about replacing the white working class, Kristol said that he hopes “this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere. Whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse.”

The event was filmed by AEI, but as of press time is marked “unlisted” on the think tank’s YouTube channel, so that it doesn’t come up in search results.

“You can make a case that America has been great because every — I think John Adams said this — basically if you are in free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled — whatever,” Kristol said.

“Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century,” he added.

The difference, Mr Billy Kristol, is that in the early 20th century immigrants were thoroughly vetted. Not like now coming in illegally, making their first act in our country a crime. The slightest criminal record in the early 20th century would have prohibited them from entering. Not only criminals but diseases are allowed now.

Supercilious arrogant Ass. Condescending POS.

If anyone thinks there is no evidence of voter fraud on this site they ars trolls, Communist pieces of garbage sent here to disrupt send them packing to the fields of islamic sh*t.

I wish more of the discussion was available. didn't it start off with an answer to someone who asked a question "if things are so bad with the white working class as you say they are...." So what was the context of the discussion?

White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Martian makes no difference the socialist for years have been building a American society rooted in entitlement for the sick, lame and lazy and anyone wonder's with this sickness of enabling political behavior why we have the problems in America that we are faced with. The youth today can riot they can kill, pilage and burn they can strick out at our 1st responders and Law Enforcement because we allowed this trash to be taught in our public education systems. If you want it fixed, I'm sorry it will take a civil war and I don't say that because I want it, if you want the cancer destroyed you must destroy the cancer or allow it to destroy you.

Trump is disappointing me... he threw Gen. Flynn under the bus and has failed to bring 'shock and awe' to bear on the enemies of our State...

He had better get rolling... before the left rolls over him.  His failure to deal with the riots and inability to convince the GOP RINO's to ram thru his cabinet or too agree to a reasonable action plan to engage his reforms is telling. 

 A few key arrests and indictments among the left would certainly help restore my confidence in this aging thespian... and it would help if McConnell would declare the filibuster DOA... invoking the Reid Nuclear Rule as standard practice for ALL business in the US Senate... that would set down the Democrats and strip them of the tools needed to delay and obstruct. 

Trump should insist on abolishing the filibuster in the Senate... publicly decry Sen. McConnell's betrayal of the GOP planks and its constituents... demand he resign and work too deny him any power... It would also behoove Trump to look into the ties McConnell has to the People's Republic of China and the communist party's Polit-bureau.

Trump may need to wage a war within the GOP before he can move forward in any effective way...

This is a hell of a game of  chess President Trump has going on right now with the radical left. He hasn't been in office a month yet but, since he hit the ground running I think he should be given some time to properly eviscerate the leftist terrorists in this country, would you not agree? Calling him names like an aging plebian or aging thespian, is not lending support to a man who is trying to clean up the BS this country has seen in recent years. What say we give him a little more time than three weeks, I am sure you will approve of what he will accomplish given some support and time. I pray to God that President Trump does what he has promised not just for me but for my entire family and all of the good people of this country you and your family included.  Thank you for your service to this great nation.

It doesn't need to be a game of Chess... Trump has the Democrat Party in checkmate, if he will simply call the game.  What we are experiencing is serious internal friction, within the GOP... McConnell, McCain, Ryan, and others, are all working to derail the Trump Express...  They are effectively turning the Express into a Local commuter train.

It is time for Trump to be Trump... I believe he is getting bad advise that is slowly co-opting his organization and plans to make America Great Again. Take the gloves off Donald and drive home your plans to make America Great Again. Clean house in the GOP and either get everyone on board or throw them off the train... time to get going before you become totally side tracked by DC politics. 

COL,  I agree with you that Trump is receiving terrible advice from someone.  Given his array of advisors, I would be willing to bet that Priebus is that source as he was part of the innermost gop establishment, people who we know hate Trump more than they hate the dems.

Yes Let Trump be Trump. After all, he not only defeated the Clinton machine, but he did it while simultaneously fighting the gop establishment!  That is no small feat which makes it very plausible that he needs to go back to it. After all, who has been whispering in his ear that he needs to be more "presidential".  The gop establishment of course.  That knowledge should be enough to convince him that he needs to return to what got him elected, and it sure as hell was NOT the cowards in the gop establishment!

Just saw numbers on fox that GOP wishes to cut immigration in half. I'm going on memory but US, Canada, Germany and Australia are presently absorbing 10 million from islamic states and the US half of that number. This is organized by the UN, this is unacceptable. The GOP and needs to get on board and stop it. Now this immigration is toward nations with a majority Anglo population and religious values reflect overwhelming Christianity. Now if these islamics have got so many answers they should stay in their shit holes and fix it but I don't think that's what it's about. I think it's about a concerted effort to destroy the Judeo-Christian, free, sovereign world of majority Caucasian people. This is a UN effort, are our leaders literally insane?

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Live Free or Die

This is and was a spiritual battle, Philip. That is all there is. Satan wars against God and His people, both Jewish and Christian.

Yes, and time is running out for the unbelievers, the red calf is alive and the priest for the 3rd Temple are being trained.
to the unbelievers the Christian world is nonsense.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
