Neil Munro, “Two GOP Legislators Propose American Replacement Bill, Plus Amnesty,” Breitbart, 4 May 2017.These Republican scumbags want to “annually import 500,000 foreign blue-collar workers and white-collar professionals to replace Americans who have fallen out of the workforce and into drug addiction,” all justified with the usual outrageous nonsense that people don’t want to work or that they can’t find Americans to work at their miserable slave labour wages.
And how many years will this go on for? 20 or 30 years? 50 years? 100?
This is free market fanaticism at its most vicious and grotesque depths of inhumanity.
The long-suffering working class and even middle class people of America have been assaulted for decades with Neoliberalism – and its hideous program of austerity, free trade, outsourcing of manufacturing and service jobs, real wage stagnation, debt slavery, and the unending program of Third World mass immigration to lower wages and replace American workers.
And now these GOP legislators are openly, unashamedly, viciously proving that the actual outcome of a movement towards free markets is absolutely the following scenario:
“Wages in rich countries are determined more by immigration control than anything else, including any minimum wage legislation. How is the immigration maximum determined? Not by the ‘free’ labour market, which, if left alone, will end up replacing 80–90 per cent of native workers with cheaper, and often more productive, immigrants. Immigration is largely settled by politics. So, if you have any residual doubt about the massive role that the government plays in the economy’s free market, then pause to reflect that all our wages are, at root, politically determined.”If we in the West don’t get severe immigration control quickly, we are going to be demographically replaced and reduced to the level of the Third World. And then when those immigrants have been economically and socially destroyed by free markets or their wages get too high, the Neoliberal rulers of the West will presumably just import even more.

“… the living standards of the huge majority of people in rich countries critically depend on the existence of the most draconian control over their labour markets – immigration control. Despite this, immigration control is invisible to many and deliberately ignored by others, when they talk about the virtues of the free market.”

And where is the Left on this issue? Where are all these spineless, worthless, left-wing and Liberal people who claim to be in favour of the working class and labour rights?
I see hardly anybody willing to talk about this, nor willing to make the case that mass immigration is the last fraud of Neoliberalism, which it most certainly is, and this is before we even get to the terrible social and cultural problems associated with it.
And, on the contrary, I see many people on the Left who are fanatical, delusional, hardcore supports of the same endless mass immigration policies or even total open borders, only justified with the demand for multiculturalism or refugee rights, but whose effect – if not intention – is exactly the same as the hardcore free market fanatics.
This is a major reason why so much of the Left is morally bankrupt, and certainly doesn’t deserve political power any more than the free market Conservatives do.
