THE INTELLIGENT SOUTHERNER'S DESPAIR IN THE 1950'S | 2002-04-13
In The Death of the West, Pat Buchanan says that the whole white world is dying and being crowded and immigrated and integrated out of existence. He says Western Civilization, which is the only place where the average person ever lived above animal level, will die with it.
I saw all that when I was fighting integration in the mid-1950s. I watched conservatives swing over to the integrationists and respectability. Twenty years after that, by the 1970s, pretty well every respectable conservative, including Pat Buchanan, regarded the end of the white race as the single greatest goal of Western Civilization.
Back then, Pat argued on "Crossfire" that all those Americans fought and died in World War II specifically to open Europe up to third world immigration. "Open borders" was the battle cry of every conservative who said that the free market, and nothing else, was What America Is All About.
All this was called "race mixing," but it was obvious to everybody that Asia was for the Asians and Africa was for the Africans. This so-called race mixing would occur only in white majority countries. In the "progressive" science fiction stories of the time there are often blacks and Asians in the future, but no whites.
