The Daily Mail writes about the blessings of the democratic process and the achievements possible when people just follow the constitution – amended, of course:
White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament. The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema.
It passed by 241 votes for to 83 against after a vote on Tuesday, and the policy was a key factor in new president Cyril Ramaphosa’s platform after he took over from Jacob Zuma in February.
Mr Malema said the time for ‘reconciliation is over’. ‘Now is the time for justice,’ News24 reported. ‘We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.’
Mr Malema has a long-standing commitment to land confiscation without compensation. In 2016 he told his supporters he was ‘not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now‘.
This is precisely why the concept of open borders is as destructive as communism; no, immigration and open borders didn’t cause this outcome in South Africa. But people who live in a country have a right to decide who is let in, and allowed to vote, for precisely this reason. Today’s immigrants are tomorrows residents and the next day’s citizens. As long as there is democracy and majority-vote rule, anyone who enters your political jurisdiction is a potential invader no different than the German soldier participating in Operation Barbarossa. We haven’t even begun to touch the issue of the franchise for people who are natives.
Democracy + open borders = legalized conquest.
Vox Day offered this scenario a while ago, but under open borders a nation can completely destroy another without ever invading it; all it need do is send immigrants over there to overwhelm the native population and through the democratic process vote away their customs, traditions, culture, and laws until it resembles that of their native land.
No doubt the open border, “color-blind” lolbertarians will completely ignore the plight of the Boers in South Africa and evade, evade, evade the issue of what to do when a similar situation occurs here in the USA – it is exactly why when the moment of truth comes, they should be afforded zero aid, comfort, or assistance by those who right now have the moral courage to call out what is happening for what it is. Let them sleep in the bed they made.
In a time of crisis, a good litmus test for anyone you want in your “tribe” are those who acknowledged the problem before it actually happened, not after. Their stance on immigration and borders is by no means the sole criteria, but its a damn good start.
