In praise of window locks and border walls

The Criminal Special: Central Americans ride the rails through Mexico.

NATIONS NEED border walls because a nation is a family, and families are good things, so nations are good things too, the concept.

Nations, like regular family units, are groups of people connected by race, religion, history, language and culture. Some families are dysfunctional, and some nations are dysfunctional. Those latter are the ones President Trump allegedly labeled “shitholes.”

A bit harsh but correct in some cases.

The dysfunctional families and nations are dysfunctional not so much due to race but to a troubled culture, religion and history. Some cultures are superior to others, sometimes far superior. How do you grade a culture, giving it an A-plus, a C or an F?

Its grade depends on the lifestyle it provides its people. Thus, Haiti gets an F, Bolivia gets a D and Canada, Australia and New Zealand get an A. Due to the problem the United States created for itself centuries ago with the slavery thing and now its blowback, it gets a B on average though some states get an A (Texas), and others get a C-minus (California).

If you’ve got a well-functioning nation (or family), which depends, as we have already established, on race, religion, language, history and culture, you must exercise caution when people from other nations (or families) want to move into the house with you.

Sweden had an A-plus culture for a long time. They were a homogeneous people with a common culture, language, etc. Sweden then decided it would be a swell idea to open its borders to hordes of people from the Middle East, no questions asked.

Sweden is now known as the “Rape Capital of Europe.” This should come as no surprise when you consider they invited into their midst a staggeringly different culture, one that suppresses women and embraces an extremist, macho religion.

Sweden shot itself in the head with an AR-15. In the name of multiculturalism.

If you’ve got a successful nation (or family), caution is in order before unlocking the door to your neighbors. That’s why border walls — and locks on your home windows — are very wise things. When Trump said he would build a wall, he also said it would have a “big beautiful door” for the deserving to enter. That latter part is seldom mentioned.

Mexico is very insulted by Trump’s border wall idea. How dare he? And yet millions of Mexicans have entered the United States illegally, so many that the culture in some parts of the United States seems more like Mexico than the United States.

And to add the proverbial insult to injury, Mexico lets Central Americans enter through its southern border, hoists them atop that famous train where they jump off near the Rio Bravo to swim, hike, tunnel and fence-climb into the United States.

How dare Trump suggest a wall? The man has such gall.

The United States already has many miles of border wall, but it needs lots more and even higher. Maybe a moat with gators. But Mexico needs a wall down south too. Sweden needed one, but it seems too late now. Sweden is a goner. R.I.P.

All nations need border walls if they want to maintain their integrity, and if the nation is a very successful one (great culture), the need for a wall grows exponentially.

Nincompoopery about slavery

I JUST READ this inane article that ran about six weeks ago in the Houston Chronicle where I worked for 15 pretty good years.

It’s standard left-wing nonsense about slavery and racism in the United States. The piece is laughable. My eyeballs from rolling up in my head.

I’d bet the vast majority of Americans think that slavery is something that happened in the United States and almost nowhere else, or literally nowhere else. And I’d win big if I wagered that most people think only blacks have been slaves.

Most slaves have been white.

Fact is that slavery has existed since the Dawn of Man, and it’s happened to all races. Slavery has virtually nothing to do with race. It has to do with war. If you’re in a war, and you lose, you might end up a slave, a commodity.

In relatively modern times, Stalin ran slave-labor camps. And those camps were populated by white people. In ancient Roman times, millions were slaves, and almost all of those slaves were white, having come from other parts of what we now call Europe.

Spartacus was not a black dude, which is why he was portrayed by Kirk Douglas, not Sidney Poitier, in that classic movie. I’m awaiting fat reparations and profuse apologies, but none seem to be coming. Darn it!

Most of those Africans who ended up on slave ships headed to plantation cotton fields were brought to Africa’s coast by other Africans, black guys who’d won a tribal war. The losers ended up in chains on the slave ships.

Slavery continues today, most notably in Northern Africa, especially in Mohammedan zones. Those same gay-murdering, woman-abusing, honor-killing Mohammedans so inexplicably beloved by the American Left.

That’s the truth about slavery. You owe no one reparations, and you have nothing to feel guilty about. Well, unless you’re a North African Mohammedan.

(Note: The Houston Chronicle piece makes an attempt to equate reparations paid to Holocaust survivors with reparations for black Americans. Firstly, many Holocaust victims, actual victims, are still alive. No black American, his parents, his grandparents or his great-grandparents were slaves. Slavery ended a century and a half ago.

(Secondly, you could make the argument that black Americans today should be thanking their distant slave ancestors for going through that ugliness. As a result, black Americans are living in the United States and not in some hovel in Zimbabwe or Nigeria. That so many black Americans fail to take advantage of that blessing is a topic for another day, a topic that touches on cultural issues, not race.)

Atheists are Mohammedans

THESE TWO GROUPS have lots in common. Atheists and Mohammedans.

They both want to stamp out opposing religions, and they can get downright nasty about it too. What? you say. Atheism is not a religion? Sure, it is.*

Atheism states there is no God, which means they know what happens after death in spite of having not a shred of evidence. Their belief is based on faith alone, which makes it a religion. Tell an atheist he’s a man of faith. It’ll really gall him, which is fun.

Mohammedans want to kill those who do not embrace their religion. Atheists don’t go that far, not yet, but they are ever campaigning to have opposing religions suppressed. They want all manifestations of other religions erased from the public sphere.

Note to atheists: If you oppose organized religion, there is only one logical way to do it, and that’s to embrace agnosticism. It’s not a religion because it does not claim to know what happens after death. Agnosticism accepts cluelessness.

Agnosticism is the only rational opposition to religion. If you’re an atheist, you might as well build cathedrals, appoint clergy and invent a Holy Book.

Some saints would be nice too.

* Not all atheists are like this. Quite a few are fine people, minding their own business. Let us liken them to gays. Many of them are good people, but many want to put bakeries out of business out of pure spite and meanness.
