NY Times: Refugees Important to Fill “Void of Cultural Diversity” in White Towns

There’s nothing worse to a cosmopolitan liberal than the idea that there are still towns in America that are vastly lacking in ethnic diversity.

Well, hold on, because that’s not quite right. We’re sure the journalistic mavens who sit in their New York Times ivory tower are not the least bit concerned about cities that are 90% black or 85% Hispanic. No, that kind of cultural homogeny is A-OK. They’re only horrified by towns where all you see is an ocean of white people. As we’ve seen from their snide coverage of Trump rallies, nothing disgusts these libs more than a crowd of whites.

So we shouldn’t have been too surprised by a recent New York Times story about Congolese refugees who are hoping to bring their relatives to America through the refugee resettlement program. This is the program, of course, that President Trump has made it his mission to cripple since taking office. No fan of chain migration (or taking in refugees by the boatload), Trump has lowered the cap on refugee resettlement considerably from the days of Obama.

But this is a mistake, according to the Times:

To supporters like Mr. Engen, the Congolese are filling a void of cultural diversity in a town that is nearly 90 percent white. In the 1980s, Hmong refugees from Laos settled in Missoula. The children of immigrant families are usually the few students of color in city classrooms, while their parents work long hours at businesses eager for the help.

Not all that hidden in the subtext: It is a problem to have towns that are 90 percent white in America, circa 2019. We need to do everything possible to fill these “voids of cultural diversity” with refugees, illegal immigrants, displaced Muslims, and anyone else we can think of who isn’t white. Because being white, straight, cisgendered, and Christian in today’s America is just so, so passé.

It has become a matter of unexamined faith in leftist circles to proclaim cultural diversity as the key to America’s strength as a nation. So much so that to even question that tenet is akin to declaring yourself a bigot of the highest order.

But if the Times would take a look through their own archives, they might come across this piece from Aug. 2007, where they covered a then-new study that cast serious doubts about the false god of diversity:

IT HAS BECOME increasingly popular to speak of racial and ethnic diversity as a civic strength. From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger.

But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam — famous for “Bowling Alone,” his 2000 book on declining civic engagement — has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.

So maybe it isn’t the “void of cultural diversity” that is the problem, after all. Maybe that’s just a (thin) mask for metropolitan liberals to don so that they can justify their hatred of towns with traditional values, shared culture, and little appetite for increased government. Who knows? Maybe they’ve been wearing that mask for so long, they’ve forgotten that they ever put it on.

Or maybe they’re just lying.

What do you think?

  1. Our country is very diverse already and don’t need to allow a bunch of people in simply for the sake of diversity!!!!

    • We don’t need Muslim laws in our small towns.
      Trump 2020
      Take back our small town from Muslims who voted themselves into office and Muslim Law Enforcement.
      God Bless our country and constitutional laws

  2. The left needs this lesson.

    If foreigners want to immigrate, move here, JOIN the community, assimilate and join in helping others in the community and become another positive working member of our great Family – I saw BRAVO and welcome.

    If some idiot politician decided that a certain community is NOT BROWN enough and takes action to STEER illegals into settling in a community in which they never assimilate and do NOT help the rest of the community in any positive way, that Politician can go look for another job because in the NEXT election we can vote in some one else who will help with diversification in a positive and constructive way and NOT just to change the demographics of an area as Obama did in Minnesota.

    • It is a fact that you can only blame that illegal alien Kenyan “Butt Pirate Bathhouse Barry Osama” for places like Dearborn, MI as well where Moonie Muslime men can have as many as 4 wives on welfare.

  3. LEGAL IMMIGRATION HAS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM FOR US HONKY WHITE AS MOFO’S. U LIBERAL LEFT WING DEMON WORSHIPER’S. F–K ALL THAT LEFTIST BULLTURD PROPAGANDA. IT WAS A BUNCH OF WHITE ASS HONKY MOFO’S THAT STARTED THE IS CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC AND INCLUDED LEGAL IMMIGRATION. BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS IN THE FIRST F–K–G PLACE…SO YOU LIBERAL TURDS EAT TURDS .

  4. I am so sick of hearing the writers for the New York “No Minds Crimes” peddling their nonsense, White Purism now and forever an end to White Genocide and teaching self hatred among Whites needs to stop.

  5. Throughout history, cultural diversity has been the reason for the ultimate demise of once powerful countries. It is the failure to assimilate that’s the problem.

  6. We have more diversity than we need, or want! It is the illegal immigrants who are terrorizing this country and the citizens, We now have gangs since we have diversity. We had 85,000 citizens die from drugs in one year. That is more than a war of several years. Wake up! This is other countries sending us their gangs, terrorists, mentally deranged/ill to bring this country down. WKE UP.

  7. Oh hell yes can’t speak English, will want all the freebies they can get from the stinkin DevilRats selling pot as where they come from it’s not only legal but a every day thing, thief.and stabbing. Yes all small towns need this to do away with the peaceful lives they now lead.The NYT IS not only Devilrat indoctrinated in this scam but try shoving it off on us. We’re these intruders educated ,have a good profession and lived by the ways of god they just, just might be accepted but otherwise there just a bunch of illegals being pushed off on us. This goes for the stinkin Moslems who are 100 times worse.
