But They Are Shithole Countries And Why Do You Think That Is?

Looks like Trump is taking flack for stating the obvious.  He called shithole countries shithole countries and the grandstanding left is in a huff.

Again.
 
The man can say the sky is blue and his enemies will personally take offense for the other wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum for not being acknowledged.  He can’t win.

The question is why are they shithole countries and the compassionate progressive left will tell you colonialism, corporations, blah, blah, blah, white people.  I won’t completely dismiss the lingering effects of colonialism and the wealth sucking power of multinational corporations but sooner or later you have to take responsibility for yourself.  It’s “current year” and the colonialism card has been overplayed.

The reason why shithole countries are shithole countries is because the people who live there make them shithole countries.  The Philippines is a shithole country because Filipinos.  Somalia is a shithole country because Somalis.  Haiti is a shithole country because Haitians.  And so on.

Some countries are literal shitholes.  In India nearly half the population openly defecates in the streets.  The country is practically an open air public toilet.

I used to believe in the equality of man and the culpability of the West in the impoverishment of the developing world.  I used to believe we had some sort of duty to improve the lives of those of the Third World since I lived a relatively comfortable life at their expense.  And supporting mass immigration was part of that.  Then I grew up and wised up by moving to and living in Toronto.  If living in Toronto hasn’t taught you the cold hard reality that the Third World is a shithole because Third-Worlders then you should leave your gentrified white middle class enclave some time and talk to the people you say you love to have in Canada just not exactly living in your neighbourhood.

I’ve worked with these people.  I went to Church with these people.  I went to school with their kids and other than being nice people, most of them anyway, they’re extremely unremarkable and will remove any wonderment to why the shithole country they left is a shithole.  I no longer saw letting them immigrate to Canada as an act of reconciliation but as an act of charity.


And we’re importing them into the country by the hundreds of thousands each year.  Doing so is like willfully infecting yourself with the AIDS virus.

Call me a racist; call me a xenophobe I simply don’t care anymore.  But importing by the millions the “darkies” of the developing world into the white West on the presumption that they will prosper not only themselves but the West as well is just the progressive-left version of the white man’s burden.  We assume that deep down all men are equal and that when in the white West the “darkies” will do as whitey does and become indistinguishable from anyone and everyone skin colour aside.  This is what Peter Brimelow referred to as the “magic soil theory” in an interview with Jared Taylor.  It assumes bringing in hordes of Third Worlders into a Western society will magically change them into something better just because they happen to be in the West.  It’s the same faulty reasoning that believes that the magical incantations of the citizenship oath turns a man or woman into a Canadian on the spot, indistinguishable from a maple syrup bleeding, hockey puck shitting Canuck.  Instinctively we know that’s not true and my lived experience shouts at me that it’s not true.

Ask yourself this: if the people we’re importing en masse from the developing world were unable to prosper themselves and their society in their native countries what do you think they’re going to do for us here?  And if you counter that Canada is specifically targeting the Third World’s most ambitious “best and brightest” then we’re robbing the Third World of its most precious resource condemning it to a state of perpetual poverty and forever a shithole.  As long as the West provides itself as an escape route to the "better life" for the people of the Third World they will feel no compulsion to do anything to change the societies and the countries they live in.  All they have to do is hop on plane and go to the West leaving their fellow countrymen to rot in the shithole of a country they’re leaving behind.  It’s an act of instant gratification where others have done all the hard work and then you suddenly show up to reap the rewards.

Not letting these people come here is an act of moral duty.  It’s tough love.  If they don’t like the country they were born in then they should do something about to make it one worth living in.  They should build their countries by following the West’s example, not immigrate there and colonize it.  They may not realize that better country in their lifetime but future generations will.  I know it’s easy for me to say this but that’s life and I, like hundreds of millions of people, were fortunate enough to be born in a prosperous Western state.  But that prosperity was built over generations and it didn’t come easy but nothing worth having comes easy.   And it’s a prosperity Filipinos, Indians, Syrians, Haitians, Somalis, Sri Lankans, Nigerians and their fellow Third Worlders want through the simple easy act of walking off a plane.  Had they spent the effort and resources they used to immigrate to the West to make their lives better for themselves in their respective shithole countries then perhaps their countries, in time, wouldn’t be shitholes.

We have no obligation, be it moral or economic, to let these people settle here.  We do have an obligation to future generations of Canadians to leave the country in a better shape than the one we were born into.  But mass Third World immigration is making that difficult to achieve.  We may have inherited a stable prosperous country from our parents and our parents’ parents but by allowing mass Third World immigration into Canada we will be bequeathing a shithole country to those who follow.  Canada isn't our country to give away like that.

Diversity Ruins Everything: Star Wars Edition or Star Wars Has Become Privileged White Female Fanfiction.

I saw the new Star Wars movie and it’s an SJW POS.  I was still entertained by it but in a jaw dropping “What the hell are they doing here?” kind of way.  As a movie spectacle it works.  The space battle scenes are engaging but plot wise the movie goes nowhere and it’s burdened by uninteresting characters and a superfluous subplot that extends the run-time beyond patience.  And the rammed-down-your-throat diversity doesn’t help either because diversity is bullshit.

It was clear from the start that diversity would be a guiding principal in the creation of the now Disney owned Star Wars universe.  The writers, directors, and producers were quite clear on this.  In fact the woman running Star Wars into the ground with her ham-fisted direction of it owes her entire career to diversity quotas (and riding the coattails of much more talented and ambitious people like Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg).

So how’s that diversity thing working out so far for the new Star Wars film?  Box office sales are strong albeit only for the first week of release.  And in the lucrative Chinese market Star Wars: The Last Jedi struggles against a “meh” receptionToy sales are weak which should be alarming because this is what this is all about.  Star Wars was always about selling toys and that’s why Disney bought it.
 
Oh, and the fans hate it!  Now I don’t consider myself a Star Wars fan.  Like many adults my age I grew up on Star Wars collecting the toys and playing the video games but any emotional attachment I had to the movies is long gone.  I grew out of it.  I had no intention of seeing the latest installment of Star Wars because I just don’t care anymore and only went because my ticket was paid for.  But the fans!  They’re the ones buying the toys and seeing the films more than once taking their kids along with them creating a new generation of Star Wars toy buyers.  When you’ve lost them you’ve lost your real market.

Some people claim George Lucas ruined their childhood with the prequels.  He may have ruined it but diversity is killing it.  There’s no reason for any of the characters to be who they are in the film except for diversity.  Rey doesn’t have to be a female but she is because vagina.  The Storm Trooper with a conscience, Finn, doesn’t have to be black but he is because black which is odd since the First Order is obviously an imagination of a white supremacy movement.  And the Rose character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have to be Asian but she is because Asian.  In fact she doesn’t have to be in the film at all and I hazard to guess the meandering subplot was written just to stick her in the story somewhere.

The original Star Wars trilogy worked because it was a simple tale of good vs. evil with a small cast of characters that allowed the films to tease out their personalities so the audience can care about them and their struggle.  Back then the politics of diversity wasn’t an issue allowing the film’s creators to concentrate on telling a story.  Now the films are distracted by diversity where every check-box of identities needs to be represented creating a cast of characters the audience is given no time to get to know or give a damn about.
 
And the infusion of SJW ideology makes it worse.  The feminist propaganda in the movies is so blatant it’s obvious they’re not even trying to hide it.  In all the Disney Star Wars movies released thus far it’s a white woman (not a black woman or an Asian woman but a white one) leading a rag tag group of diverse freedom fighters against a powerful galactic force of evil guided by white men because white women will lead the world to peace and harmony against the true destabilizing global force of toxic white male patriarchy.  Yes, the leaders of the evil First Order and Empire are white males.  

In fact there are no positive male characters in the new Star Wars movies at least not white ones.  Kylo Ren is an emotionally unstable manchild with mommy and daddy issues.  In The Last Jedi Luke is a brooding MGTOW, Poe Dameron is a reckless Alpha Male who is cut down to size and put in his place like a misbehaving child by women, and Finn is essentially the Jar Jar Binks of the new trilogy.  There's even a minor character in the new film played by Benicio del Toro, a male, who turns out to be a two-faced huckster.  It’s Kathleen Kennedy's feminist Star Wars fan fiction on the big screen, with the essential Mary Sue lead, where women are empowered by attacking the male identity (kind of like in real life).  All three of the films are white female empowerment fantasies where white women occupy positions of leadership, undoubtedly through merit and not quotas, helping lost and hopeless men find themselves while shepherding the galaxy into a multi-cultural, multi-racial Utopia which is why these films belong in the realm of science-fantasy.  In the real world white women in leadership positions, often put there through quotas and not merit, have proven to be instrumental in the decline of companies and countries, destabilizing Western nations through social re-engineering schemes and the cheerleading of mass immigration.

Diversity is mediocrity and Star Wars is just one cultural proof of it.  It’s not just me saying it.  It’s the poor fan reception and the lackluster toy sales.  Star Wars has enjoyed box office success not because they’re good movies but because it’s Star WarsStar Wars: The Force Awakens is a competent movie but an uninspiring one, retelling A New Hope and doesn’t reward successive viewings.  Rogue One: A Star Wars Tale is an unnecessary and messy addition to the Star Wars canon.   Star Wars: The Last Jedi is too long being weighed down by SJW activism, feminism, and the diversity agenda.  These films have failed to capture the magic of the original trilogy.  They look like Star Wars but don’t feel like it.  Perhaps the original Star Wars trilogy was just lightning in a bottle but I can return to those movies and watch them again with the same amount of enjoyment I had when I saw them the first time.  And I repeat I don’t consider myself a fan having abandoned any emotional attachment to the films long ago.  The new films feel like product created by a committee guided by the reigning progressive agenda of the Hollywood elite to pander to as many people as possible.  The original trilogy encapsulated universal themes of good vs. evil, hope, destiny, fate, and family and you don’t need diversity to express any of that.  It seems diversity just gets in the way and f**ks it up.
