The establishment and globalist elites love open borders.
They favor mass migration regardless of the consequences.
But one member of the establishment made shocking comments about replacing the white working class with foreign immigrants.
Appearing at the American Enterprise Institute, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol made controversial comments about working class white Americans being “decadent and lazy.”
The Daily Caller reports Kristol declaring:
“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…
…You can make a case that America has been great because every — I think John Adams said this — basically if you are in free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled — whatever,” Kristol said.
“Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century,” he added.

Kristol’s comments echoed those made by Jeb Bush when he proposed in 2015 to repopulate the city of Detroit with immigrants.
He even suggested the mayor of Detroit — the economically depressed Midwestern city where he’s giving his first policy address of the 2016 campaign on Wednesday — use immigration to “repopulate” the city.
“It just seems to me that maybe if you open up our doors in a fair way and unleashed the spirit of peoples’ hard work, Detroit could become in really short order, one of the great American cities again,” Bush said then. “Now it would look different, it wouldn’t be Polish…But it would be just as powerful, just as exciting, just as dynamic. And that’s what immigration does and to be fearful of this, it just seems bizarre to me.”
Open borders and mass migration are two of the foundational pillars of globalism.
But now some are taking it one step further.
Jeb Bush and Kristol suggested replacing Americans with foreigners.
Many Americans are disturbed by this talk.
They see a government in Washington that allows illegal immigrants to pour into America at a time when wages are stagnant and economic growth plods along.
Other critics point out that both Bush and Kristol are from the hawkish wing of the party which constantly presses for military adventures abroad in the name of “American exceptionalism.”
But neither seems to hold working Americans in any exceptional regard.
And oftentimes, it is the children of the working class who Kristol mocks as “decadent and lazy” or that Jeb bush seeks to replace who fight the wars they cheerlead for.
