Perhaps the brown wave will stem the red tide....
Yesterday’s WSJ’s “Notable & Quotable” reports that more than half of America’s college students oppose free speech on campus – which means that more than half of America’s college students are one small step away from opposing free speech everywhere.
Reading this and some other articles I have read about immigration got me to thinking. A good many of the people who come to the US do so because of opportunity. Now while the left is working tirelessly to skew the number of people who come to the US as being from more liberal or socialist countries. Now it may be true that they will significantly change the culture of the US in the future, given the sad and scary fact from the WSJ above, people who oppose immigration because they fear that immigrants infect America with cultural attitudes hostile to freedom ought to reconsider their position. With most of America’s best and brightest already flirting with tyranny, new waves of opportunity-seeking immigrants are unlikely to make matters worse and might well supply a needed spur to protect freedom in the U.S. from its home-grown antagonists.
