Pat Buchanan On The "Unpardonable Heresy" Of Tucker Carlson

Our diversity is our greatest strength.

After playing clips of Democratic politicians reciting that truth of modern liberalism, Tucker Ca

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.

Look around this great experiment we call the USA and you will see the answers/evidence all around you. I can go through the list and provide data. The problem is those of you asking this question really don't care about facts or data unless it stokes your preconceived completely incorrect notions on the topic. Your logic trains don't run on time, yet you actually think the nonsense going on in your head is the sign of wisdom.

In our modern culture, the focus on diversity can become its own god. Diversity itself is revered rather than the One who created that diversity. An emphasis on diversity tends to highlight our differences. God is more concerned with unity (Ephesians 4:3). Galatians 3:28 says, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” God is saying that our differences are not what should define the children of God. Those who belong to the Lord Jesus should first define themselves as God’s children. We must be willing to set diversity aside in favor of unity in spirit. Jesus’ passionate prayer in John 17 shows that His desire for His disciples was that “they may be one as you and I are one” (verse 22).

Another act of God that created diversity occurred at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:9). Humankind was clustered together, and God wanted them to “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (Genesis 9:1). To expedite their obedience, He confused their languages, making it impossible for them to work together. From there, humanity spread out across the earth, and people with the same language remained together. Over time, cultures, races, and regional dialects emerged and resulted in the diversity we now know.

So who do you think is behind this modern day MESS?

Always thought the liberal narrative of diversity was load of crap.

Diversity IS a strength when everyone is united in the greater good and wants to take advantage of the opportunities in the USA.
I don't see that happening in today's immigrant waves.
They seem to want to establish their own little sh**h**es that resemble the sh**h**es they ran away from....
Complete with child rape, child marriage, slavery, disease, and a social system totally foreign to ours. And much worse, a committed desire to CHANGE this wonderful nation into another killing, dirty, misogynistic, third world sh**h**e (like the one they ran away from).
Come here legally first. You are welcome.
Assimilate. You are golden. (worship whatever God you want, by the way)
Work hard and obey the law. You may become rich.
It's that simple.
It ain't easy, but it's simple.
Jump a fence, swim a river, ride a boat, fake a passport, whatever, and I
have no sympathy. Too many Americans work pretty damn hard for what they have to just give it away to anyone and everyone who evades the Border Patrol.
Keep cheering.

This "great experiment" works when we were the "melting pot"! All sorts went in to become one homogeneous mix, American! Not African-American, Irish-American, Mexican-American but just plain proud,one culture, one language, Americans! Diverse but behind each other for the betterment of all!
