Bill Kristol: “Lazy” White Working Class Should be replaced by “New Americans”

This is why the old guard of the GOP almost took the GOP over the cliff. A link to the hour long interview can be found over at the Daily Caller. The interview didn’t get much better than this clip. Contempt of us worker bees, and a callous disregard was the order of the day. Here tis:

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.

    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.

    I highly recommend that book. The full title is Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010.

    I got my copy at the public library. What a read!

    Kristol is one of those jerk-offs who makes a ton of money convincing others to take shipboard cruises just so that they can listen to him babble on about his version of conservativism. No thanks. Off topic, you should take a moment to read an excellent article entitled “The War Among Generals” … interesting to say the least>.

    He, along with the establishment Republicans, have become unhinged much like the Democrats. Unfortunately Kellyanne Conway gave them all fodder with her stupid remark about Ivanka’s clothing line, she provided them with the fodder they have been hoping for.

    Kristol doesn’t know his history. My opinion is that the most successful societies are the ones that are “closed”. Wonder how he justifies that?
    For some reason this Scripture in God’s Word came to mind on this “bringing new blood in” idea (since I don’t trust the Left’s motives): Speaking of two of God’s angels that visited Lot – Genesis 19:5 ” … They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Lot very wisely “shut the door on them”. (His own version of closed door policy.) I don’t think Kristol wants to sleep with them, but I think he has another nefarious motive there and they both fit because it’s all self-destructive and a very clear warning to be careful about whom you “let in”.

    Well…doesn’t matter what degree, profession, occupation, trade, training, or experience you have. To him and them you’re uneducated if you haven’t passed globalism, open borders, multiculturalism 101 and be brainwashed to accept it as the way to go. And to get those degrees and the others mentioned above nowadays one has to go to institutions and other facilities and be taught by those already brainwashed. No wonder there’s so many of what long ago used to be smart people among their ranks.
    I saw a sign in the Women’s March that said “Patriotism is Racist.” Person carrying sign is their idea of educated.

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    How about, “crippled” white working class, because THAT, was the intent of the Marxists in elected positions. A treasonous act against the People of the United States.

    To be fair – and I really try to be fair and non-hypocritical – he posed it as a question. He said ‘if they are so bad, don’t you want new ‘Americans’ coming in?’ Then he stated a theory that someone else had already posed – the US has been great and accomplished so much because immigrants seeking the ‘American Dream’ re-invigorate our working force which becomes staid and complacent every four or five generations. He used other words, I chose to less harsh descriptions.

    It’s an interesting theory and has some truth in it.

      He quotes Adam Smith who took the position that after a couple of generations, laziness sets in as you say. I am not sure I agree, but I saw where he was going. There are generations of coal miners who work in the same difficult positions. I listened to most of it. It was devoid of any compassion. It was the open borders, global integration that I took the most exception to. Add his smug little smile through it all. 🙂

        As in all cases, it holds true for some people, but not all. Coal miners are a good example. On the flip side, look at some wealthy. Get several generations away from the one which earned the money/created the business, etc., many times those generations do nothing with the money, but play.

        The government and welfare play a big role, too. Which is why there is only some truth to the theory.

        Good points Laura Take a look at the link to a post located below the video. I would be interested in your take! 🙂

        Oh man! Gonna have to read it a few more times. I’ll post more after work. Good thing I decided to go out early to clean off my car. We only got ’bout an inch of snow, but my doors were frozen – yippee!

        My daughter has a blizzard and 8-12 inches of snow in NYC – yesterday it was 60 degrees, she said.

        My goodness. Bless his heart. Bill Kristol wants what’s best for America.
        Might be said as “Bill Kristol wants what’s best for America. Bless his heart.”
        Used in the South, Bless his heart is always considered as a snide and pejorative remark. (see phase @ Quora)
        Meaning: Bill Krystal wants what’s best for America. But he’s full of s_ _ t!
        As per the post beneath the video, could also say “David French agrees that white working-class communities ‘deserve to die. Bless his heart.”

    America’s least educated is the product of the dysfunctional public schools in most of the government engendered ghettoized cities large and small in every state. LBJ should rot in hell for starting the nation’s cultural and social death spiral. This democrat monster did to this country what no outside power could ever imagine doing; and Obama put the icing on the cake. Meanwhile elitist pieces of shit like Krystal have nothing but misplaced blame. The white american worker once the backbone of this country is considered nothing more than cannon fodder in the war to destroy Americana.

      It was his ilk that made sure that what was best for America did not include the working stiffs. He even goes into that in the interview once again. Smiling the whole time. The America is his rich buddies and the political class.

    whispering—I.can’t.stand.Bill.Kristol. He is part of the problem….I think its important to remember most of the “young” working class has been under Obama’s/dems term…it has been a very long 8 + years…that man and the dems have caused many issues and problems…just saying.
