"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
One of the authors of a Heritage Foundation report that panned a Senate plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws argued in his doctoral dissertation that immigrants generally have lower IQs than the “native white population” of the United States.
Jason Richwine, who received his doctorate in public policy from Harvard in 2009 and joined the conservative Heritage Foundation in 2012, wrote in his dissertation titled “IQ and Immigration Policy” that immigrants in the U.S. have lower IQs than native Americans, and that that difference “is likely to persist over several generations.”
“The consequences are a lack of socioeconomic assimilation among low-IQ immigrant groups, more underclass behavior, less social trust, and an increase in the proportion of unskilled workers in the American labor market,” Richwine wrote, in a story first reported by The Washington Post. “Selecting high-IQ immigrants would ameliorate these problems in the U.S., while at the same time benefiting smart potential immigrants who lack educational access in their home countries.” Read the full story: here
And so, Mr. Richwine has predictably been chewed up and spit out for what he said, which was deemed “racist” by the usual suspects. And as has been stated by many Conservatives, the politics of “personal destruction” and “political correctness”, rules the day. Not discussion of facts.
Many articles I’ve read and commentaries I’ve seen, haven’t discussed the accuracies of his ‘doctoral dissertation’, but simply resorted to tagging him a ‘racist bigot’ for presenting a thought, which by all accounts is . . . accurate. Liberals seem to have trouble making rebuttals, when it’s easier to kill the messenger.
Liberals created ‘political correction’ to control and suppress, free speech. And they’ve done a fine job of doing. Most of us have kowtowed and nipped our own speech, as not to know be harangued by these ne’er do wells. That is ‘unamerican’.
Just how many yard men and maids does America need to import? Not to be insulting — but honestly, how many? Thousands (if not millions) of illegals aliens were informed by government advertisement in their native country, that coming to America meant being welcomed to Welfare, Food Stamps and “obamaphones”. This isn’t helping America, regardless of how the Liberals propagate the idea. Those wishing to migrate, legally to America, should be able to prove they have jobs and can support themselves without the handouts of working Americans.
What might be a little surprising, is that “native white Americas” would have a higher IQ, taking into consideration our dying educational system! But, even as bad as it’s become, it must be superior to our un-neighborly neighbors to the South, Africa and elsewhere around the world..
American want legal immigrants to become part of our society, embracing our language and customs. These are the people who add to any nation in the most productive ways. Having millions of “illegals aliens” does not add to America in a positive way — they subtract and can have generations who subtract.
Of course, this is all meaningless, as Democrats/ Liberals seek to import “lower IQ” individuals, who’ll be happy to take “government assistance” (taxpayer money) for decades or a life time. That’s a good voting base for the Socialist Democrat Party and one which they will not give up.
