Pete Spiliakos of the Christian journal 'First Things' published a blog post entitled 'The Real Immigration Challenge' in which he argues Republicans and conservatives haven't done enough to appeal to Hispanics and younger voters.
As usual with Christian conservatives, race is never discussed. It's as if the issues of ethnic identity and genetic difference simply do not exist. Instead, Spiliakos argues conservatives must repackage their ideology in a way that builds fresh associations with the new population that inhabits America. If only conservatives will work to build these associations, says Spiliakos, than Hispanics will become Republicans and harmony will be reached.
The problem with this thinking, however, is that unlike brainwashed American whites, Hispanics already have a built in set of associations which do not involve ethereal ideological abstractions like the "free market" or "propositional nation." Hispanics have a very real and concrete idea of where their loyalties lay (i.e. their people and race). This alone is enough to suggest Hispanics and whites will never share many common interests.
Even if all Hispanics switched to the Republican party before 2016 it would mean only the end of the conservative Republican party, not the triumph of traditional America. The loyalty of Hispanics will always be with their co-ethnics back in Mexico or Latin America. Hispanics will always be more similar to their own racial kin than to the Anglo-Americans who built this country.
It's somewhat delusional to believe Hispanics, even Hispanic Republicans, would oppose the mass immigration of their own people into America. A mass immigration that has already brought 25% of the entire Mexican population within American borders.
Blood is thicker than water, and American Christian conservatives must ask themselves whether an America populated by small brown people is really America. Is America really America if it's founding ethnic group is replaced by an entirely different race?
The answer is "no." The races are not the same, they do not think the same, they do not create the same cultures, they do not value the same things, they do not have the same abilities.
Most people would acknowledge that if they returned to America 150 years from now, attended a baseball game, and discovered that all the players and fans were Hispanic or Black they would not feel as though they were home . . . they would feel as though they were aliens who had stumbled into a foreign land. The sense of home and community that one associates with a native country isn't based upon loyalty to capitalism or the existence of a constitution. Organically, home and community is built upon family, and in the national sense that family is the extended into ethnic and racial groups.
Spiliakos, and the rest of the Christian conservative establishment, must rethink their way of viewing the world. God did not create race so that everyone could ignore it and pretend as though it had no real impact on human social affairs.
The battle between the almost entirely white Republican party and the "Coalition of Disaffected Minorities" (otherwise known as Democrats) is a battle over race and faith. A battle waged by various groups bent on the displacement of the white Christian race that conquered the North American continent. They will not rest until the white race is driven from hegemony, and the mighty civilization it built is destroyed.
The real immigration challenge is convincing whites to accept the reality and importance of race.
