Immigration, as envisioned by Ted Kennedy and his 1965 compadres, is deconstructing our society. We are being set up for a multicultural debacle like what Europe is going through right now. Cultures do not live side by side in harmony. Only the western elites think this can happen. It leads to cultural dominance other than white folks. Think Islam, both in Europe and America. If you like slavery and all of its evils, you are going to love living under the iron fist of Islam.

America has always absorbed what is best about incoming new cultures, and rejected the rest. And the melting pot is working just the same way it always has, on a timescale of generations. You've just found new ways to complain about it (ex the 'Salad Bowl').

It's funny (and pitiful) to read your paranoia when you consider which culture, out of all the cultures in the world, is the one that spreads out over it's national borders like Kudzu on Steroids and takes root and captures peoples imagination all over this planet. Do you know which culture I'm talking about?

islam has an unbroken 1400 year record of annihilating any infidels who come into its power. good luck with taking the best of islam and rejecting the rest. there isnt any "best" of islam, and any society that doesnt reject islam in its poisonous entirity is doomed to slavery and genocide.

I beg to differ. The History of Islam includes several centuries in which jews and other minorities fled the pogroms of Christian Europe for the relative safety and tolerance of the Islamic Middle East. Today's Islamic world includes parts of the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East's largest Republic (Turkey), and most populously the Multicultural Indonesia.

Please do not confuse what Limbaugh ladles into your brain 3 hrs/day with History or Truth.

Well, the Islamic rule of Spain might have been better than elsewhere, but I suggest you read a little more about what it meant to be non-Muslim in Spain under the Caliphate.

Islam is as bad as anybody else (ex, the Christian Crusaders) when it comes to invading other people's homes. I just want to point out that there was a time when Jews voluntarily fled to the Muslim Middle East to escape Christian persecution.

you have swallowed whole the entire line of lies offered by the proponents of islam. i suggest you go to somolia and enjoy the golden age of islam in somolia. it is possible that even a liberal might learn something. first tell me. have you looked into the golden age of islam in eastern turkey in 1914 when the armenians were murdered by peaceful muslims? oh, you are not an armenian, so you dont have anything to worry about. go to somolia. enjoy.

On Saturday I will be debating Mark Kirkorian on immigration policy before the National Review Institute.

I am a "wet," on the topic. Have been since I opposed California's proposition 187 in 1994.

Mark, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, is a "dry."

Here's the interesting thing about out "debate," to be moderated by National Review's Jim Geraghty: Even if one or the other of us succeeds in persuading everyone in the room of our point of view, it doesn't matter. Not a lick. The GOP is branded as an anti-immigrant party, especially with voters under 30, the...
