The Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson

The Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson
The Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Our diversity is our greatest strength.

After playing clips of Democratic politicians reciting that truth of modern liberalism, Tucker Carlson asked, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you've made this our new national motto, please be specific.”

Reaction to Carlson's question, with some declaring him a racist for having raised it, suggests that what we are dealing with here is not a demonstrable truth but a creed not subject to debate.

Yet the question remains valid: Where is the scientific, historic or empirical evidence that the greater the racial, ethnic, cultural and religious diversity of a nation, the stronger it becomes?

From recent decades, it seems more true to say the reverse: The more diverse a nation, the greater the danger of its disintegration.

Ethnic diversity, after all, tore apart our mighty Cold War rival, splintering the Soviet Union into 15 nations, three of which — Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia — have since split further along ethnic lines.

Russia had to fight two wars to hold onto Chechnya and prevent the diverse peoples of the North Caucasus from splitting off on ethnic grounds, as Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan had done.

Ethnic diversity then shattered Yugoslavia into seven separate nations.

And even as we proclaim diversity to be our greatest strength, nations everywhere are recoiling from it.

The rise of populism and nationalism across Europe is a reaction to the new diversity represented by the Arab, Asian and African millions who have lately come, and the tens of millions desperate to enter.

Center-left and center-right parties are losing ground in European elections because they are seen as feckless in meeting what more and more indigenous Europeans believe to be an existential threat — mass migration from across the Med.

Japan's population has ceased to grow, and each year brings fewer toddlers into its schools. Yet Tokyo resists the racial and ethnic diversity greater immigration would bring. Why, if diversity is a strength?

What South Koreans dream of is uniting again with the 22 million separated members of their national family who live in the North, but share the same history and blood.

This summer, in its Basic Law, Israel declared itself an ethnonational state and national home of the Jewish people. African migrants crossing the Sinai to seek sanctuary in Israel are unwelcome.

Consider China, which seeks this century to surpass America as the first power on earth. Does Xi Jinping welcome a greater racial, ethnic and cultural diversity within his county as, say, Barack Obama did in ours?

In his western province of Xinjiang, Xi has set up an archipelago of detention camps. Purpose: Re-educate his country's Uighurs and Kazakhs by purging them of their religious and tribal identities, and making them and their children more like Han Chinese in allegiance to the Communist Party and Chinese nation.

Xi fears that the 10 million Uighurs of Xinjiang, as an ethnic and religious minority, predominantly Muslim, wish to break away and establish an East Turkestan, a nation of their own, out of China. And he is correct.

What China is doing is brutalitarian. But what China is saying with its ruthless policy is that diversity — religious, racial, cultural — can break us apart as it did the USSR. And we are not going to let that happen.

Do the Buddhists of Myanmar cherish the religious diversity that the Muslim Rohingya of Rakhine State bring to their country?

America has always been more than an idea, an ideology or a propositional nation. It is a country that belongs to a separate and identifiable people with its own history, heroes, holidays, symbols, songs, myths, mores — its own culture.

Again, where is the evidence that the more Americans who can trace their roots to the Third World, and not to Europe, the stronger we will be?

Is the Britain of Theresa May, with its new racial, religious and ethnic diversity, a stronger nation than was the U.K. of Lloyd George, which ruled a fourth of mankind in 1920?

Was it not the unity Bismarck forged among the diverse Germanic peoples, bringing them into a single nation under the Kaiser in 1871, that made Germany a far stronger and more formidable power in Europe?

Empires, confederations and alliances are multi-ethnic and multicultural. And, inevitably, their diversity pulls them apart.

The British Empire was the greatest in modern history. What tore it apart? Tribalism, the demands of diverse peoples, rooted in blood and soil, to be rid of foreign rule and to have their own place in the sun.

And who are loudest in preaching that our diversity is our strength?

Are they not the same people who told us that democracy was the destiny of all mankind and that, as the world's “exceptional nation,” we must seize the opportunity of our global preeminence to impose its blessings on the less enlightened tribes of the Middle East and Hindu Kush?

If the establishment is proven wrong about greater diversity bringing greater strength to America, there will be no do-over for the USA.

I work for a state run agency and it is unionized. Any time there is a chance for advancement the eeo commission gets involved to make sure that women and/or minorities are placed over white males. I have seen a woman get a carpenter position and she cannot build a form or use a circular saw beyond passing the entirely too easy practicum to get the position. She beat out a more senior and experienced white male. I have seen a minority get a mason position and he cannot read a tape measure, he was promoted over the same individual… Read more »

A structural welding test corrupted to let a person pass? Has anyone complained to the state engineering board, ASME, or other controlling entity as regards health and safety of the public and the mismanagement of the weld testing process at this facility ? This is in the same category as hospital, airline, nuclear, etc, subject matter; structural means buildings, bridges, towers, etc. Places that pulled stunts like this previously, have been shut down for a management overhaul. I hope someone where you’re at brings attention to the situation.

This should not be allowed to continue.

Our greatest strength is the ability to sense bullshit when we see and smell it. That way we don’t step in or eat it. The real question is how long do you continue to allow the bullshitter to pollute your yard? At some point you either put it back in the barn or take it to the slaughter house.

Oddly, Dr. Thomas Sowell, PhD. (himself a black man and a national treasure in my estimation) agrees:

“Today, as in the past, diversity is essentially a fancy word for group quotas. It is one of a number of wholly subjective criteria — such as “leadership” — used to admit students to colleges and universities according to their group membership, rather than according to their individual qualifications.”

Hey Pat. Agree with you on the subject except the Russian propaganda about Ukraine which is vomiting from mouth again. Ukrainians are the Kyivan-Rus people which ARE NOT Russians and were called the Rus People hundreds of years before the Muscovites stole the name for themselves. Ukrainians are NOT Russians and vice-versa. By the way, how is Vlad doing? Still sending you a check?

The word “diversity” originates from the word “divide”. At some point too much ethnic “diversity” will divide the USA. Especially those who refuse to assimilate and share no like law and morals, with the USA. Islam comes to mind.

Until about 1960, people came to the USA to “be Americans” in thought and even speech. Most came legally as refugees from Europe or SE Asia. But in the 60’s they came for the government money and a place to be made over into “their” homeland.
The Left likes this. obama said it, he was going to fundamentally change America.

The paradox of tolerance: “Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”

America needs to be diverse, but not in the way most view it. Those that come here to enjoy the freedoms and prosperity America give freely, they need to accept the fact that: You need to adapt to America, America does not have to adapt to you, may keep your cultural heritage but keep it to yourself, do not force it on others. Everyone has equal opportunities at the start, that does not guarantee equal outcome. Respect and trust are earned, be respectful and trustworthy. If you don’t assimilate yourself, expect to be treated with mistrust. Becoming an American is… Read more »

The comment “Our diversity is our greatest strength,” is a clipping of a larger quote that I cannot attribute but the full quote runs something like this.Our diversity of IDEAS, WITH FREE AND VIGOROUS DEBATE IS ONE our greatest strengthS. I remember being shown this quote in a western civilizations class by a professor who spent most of the class railing against the “diversity police” that have infected modern academics, he was only allowed to teach for one semester and was deeply unpopular on our very liberal intercity campus. But he spoke the truth.

There is a natural tendency among humans to congregate with others that share the same customs, heritage, morals, traditions and yes, genetics.
This is called a common Culture. Those that don’t share most of these traits are either assimilated ( adopt the predominant Culture) or they are ostracized by it. Hence, that’s why there are Frenchmen, Germans, English, Russians , etc..
Racially, they are of the same stock, BUT desire their own Culture. Naturally. Forced diversity has never worked,

If you read what “diversity” has done to Sweden, Germany, England, Denmark and the Netherlands, one cannot believe for a second it has brought about a better country. Just the opposite. I have friends in these countries. I get emails all the time from them telling me what is REALLY going on. Malmo, Sweden is the RAPE capitol of the EU. Murder, knife attacks, cars/vans plowing into people/crowds…the list goes on. This is how well diversity works over there. The influx of muslims who will NEVER assimilate, men between the ages of 15 -35, and trained jihadists, are destroying European… Read more »

Interesting thought in that “melting pot” paradigm – what do things in a melting pot do? They melt. They melt and become a homogeneous whole. They assimilate the culture and become one people. The concept of diversity is flawed at the outset in that it promotes the concept of non-assimilation! People group together with like-minded others who share their history, values and worldview. Diversity’s goal is to destroy nations.

That’s exactly why I don’t buy into the African-American, Mexican-American, Asian-American…even Native-American diatribe. We are all either Americans…or not. If there has to be a prerequisite before American, then there’s the beginning of devision of nationality. We are ALL immigrants from one point…even so-called natives…but if we were born here or became a citizen of this great country, we are Americans first & culturalists after the fact. THAT diversity, I can live with…as long as being an American comes first. This is OUR country.

Diverse people came to America to become American’s, not an extension of the culture and political system from which they fled. My own paternal grandfather came from Ireland to enjoy the opportunities and freedoms available here in America, and not make a new Ireland in this country. Assimilation has only become a negative objective in America in
the past thirty or so years.

Tucker Carlson hit the nail on the head! “Diversity is our greatest strength” is a lie straight from the pits of hell. It is the Left’s code for GLOBALISM. And if God wanted globalism, He wouldn’t have scattered the nations and confused the languages at the Tower of Babel – see Genesis, chapter 11. The lemmings of the Leftists are “useful idiots” and are blinded by the illusion (delusion) of a utopian state because they are of the mind that humans are a “god” unto themselves. If they are so hung up on “diversity”, then why all of the rage… Read more »

Diversity is one of the platforms of the alinsky socialist democrat party, for as much as they celebrate that “ideal”, they more honor it in the breach. Their tactic is to inflict schism and strife into society that they may exploit to political advantage. Their rejection of English as a national language and demand that ballots be printed in multiple languages is but one slap in the face of Americanism. It is a REQUIREMENT of the naturalization process that the applicants for citizenship read and speak English. Their demand that refugees and illegals be counted in the determination of representative… Read more »

So are you saying that only native Indians should live in USA ?

Diversity is genetically better than single race, other you’d end up with inbred genetic mess. Diversity brings culture exchange, cuisine exchange, music, knowledge and so much more. What is a country? Is it a race or an idea, values? America has always been a melting pot, entirely built by immigration.

@ RAM, Diversity brings a number of things. In the Indians’ case it brought disaster, and that’s the point of the article. The question isn’t, “Should they be the only ones to live here?” They failed in their attempt to control their immigration policy and lost the continent as a result. Given a Mulligan, I suspect that they’d have started fighting much earlier. The Founders, and all the original British, Spanish, and French who came to this continent were immigrants, they just refused to assimilate, much like the new wave of immigrants. That lead to the downfall of the Indians.… Read more »

“Indians” – if one researches the history of the world from other than the English version of history, one finds that the Chinese colonized the world twice, once in the Han dynasty and another during the Ming dynasty. A good book on the subject is “1421′ by Gavin Menzes. One great example from the book, the “Ice Princess”, the Peruvian girl found in the Andes a few years back, dressed in regal clothing and thought by many to be an iconic example of Andean Indian culture was from Taiwan.
