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.
Excellent observation ... Mike. I believe Pres. Trump has that in mind... first to cut off sanctuary cities and then to go after the social service and job incentive which brings these illegals to the US.
BILLY BOY IS A TOTAL CRETIN SO WHY ARE WE GIVING HIM SO MUCH ATTENTION--IGNORE HIM!
THE MORE ATTENTION HE GETS THE MORE HE BELIEVES HE IS JUSTIFIED TO SHOOT HIS MOUTH OFF!
Steven lets all send him an email and tell him how much we like him?
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. We all know who the lazy people are, they call themselves democrats, or liberals. You can see it with their work ethics.
Joseph - It can be members of "both parties" - -dimwits AND rinks and those who have lingered in Congress the longest, are generally, THE GUILTY ONES!
Decadent seems to fit Bill Kristol to a tea. Editor-at- Large means no one cares what you have to say. No more free air time turns Weekly Standard into the new Enquirer that you read at the grocery store.
