FB dismisses Daniel Greenfield as spam

A cou­ple of days ago, I shared on Face­book Daniel Greenfield’s arti­cle, The Imag­i­nary His­panic.

A dozen years ago I pointed out that there is no such thing as His­panic. There are Peru­vians, Puerto Ricans, Paraguayans, Pana­ma­ni­ans, and whatnot,

How­ever, here in the USA there are a large num­ber of peo­ple who are mak­ing money out of the “mul­ti­cul­tural diver­sity” cul­ture of depen­dence, and the indus­try it has gen­er­ated, who are will­ing to go along. Some may be politi­cians, some may be bureau­crats, some may be using the size­able amount of monies allo­cated to “minor­ity busi­nesses”, some just like to get a hand­out. And then there are thepro­fes­sional His­pan­ics, which as Val has cor­rectly pointed out,

Pro­fes­sional His­pan­ics have no dis­cernible tal­ent other than to beat their chest and play the race card. It’s just sad.

Green­field rec­og­nizes that “In the eco­nom­ics of iden­tity pol­i­tics, His­pan­ics, unlike African-​Americans, are not an endur­ing group.”

In the polit­i­cal arena, Green­field posits,

His­panic immi­gra­tion becomes less polit­i­cally help­ful with each gen­er­a­tion. The Dem majori­ties grow thin­ner and less reli­able. His­panic immi­gra­tion, unlike Islamic migra­tion, pro­duces dimin­ish­ing polit­i­cal returns for its spon­sors. The only solu­tion to the reten­tion prob­lem lies with open borders.

The Democ­rats don’t value the DACA ille­gal aliens who ben­e­fited from Obama’s equally ille­gal amnesty because, as they claim, they’re really Amer­i­cans. They only care about them to the extent that they aren’t. And even they’re use­ful only as a wedge issue for open bor­ders and unlim­ited migration.

As long as the cen­sus counts heads instead of cit­i­zens, migra­tion cre­ates Dem dis­tricts. And in machine pol­i­tics, ille­gal aliens and non-​citizens can even vote in those dis­tricts. But it’s momen­tum, not minori­ties, that the Dems are really after. A con­stant flow of immi­grants trans­forms Amer­ica. But when the flow stops, then the immi­grants are the ones who become trans­formed by America.

I agree totally, not sim­ply on the­ory, but from per­sonal expe­ri­ence. I have known hun­dreds of peo­ple from Latin Amer­ica who legally moved to the USA gen­er­a­tions ago, oth­ers who came more recently and legal­ized their res­i­dency sta­tus at great expense after arriv­ing here. They may still retain tra­di­tions from their faiths, or from their coun­tries of ori­gin, but assim­i­lated Amer­i­can val­ues com­pletely and have thrived.

They are not in favor of open borders.

So I shared Greenfield’s post on Face­book, and this morn­ing I get a notice, “We removed your post because it looks like spam.”

Just last week

[Mark] Zucker­berg, in a sweep­ing post on Face­book, said the com­pany would change the fil­ter for the News Feed to pri­ori­tise what friends and fam­ily share, while reduc­ing the amount of non-​advertising con­tent from pub­lish­ers and brands.

On the one hand, “reduc­ing the amount of non-​advertising con­tent from pub­lish­ers and brands,” but they dis­miss posts against open bor­ders as spam. On the other hand, my time­line ads fea­tures $15,000 ball gowns and jew­elry, as far away from my lifestyle as you can get.

Also last week, Face­book CEO Mark Zucker­berg asked his fol­low­ers to call their con­gress­men and con­gress­women to ask them to solve DACA immi­gra­tion issues. And yes, FB labels you.

All the same, FB deletes Greenfield’s post as spam.

I don’t know if this is all coin­ci­den­tal, but it sure doesn’t look like it.

A couple  of days ago, I shared on Facebook Daniel Greenfield’s article, The Imaginary Hispanic.

A dozen years ago I pointed out that there is no such thing as Hispanic. There are Peruvians, Puerto Ricans, Paraguayans, Panamanians, and whatnot,

However, here in the USA there are a large number of people who are making money out of the “multicultural diversity” culture of dependence, and the industry it has generated, who are willing to go along. Some may be politicians, some may be bureaucrats, some may be using the sizeable amount of monies allocated to “minority businesses”, some just like to get a handout. And then there are theprofessional Hispanics, which as Val has correctly pointed out,

Professional Hispanics have no discernible talent other than to beat their chest and play the race card. It’s just sad.

Greenfield recognizes that “In the economics of identity politics, Hispanics, unlike African-Americans, are not an enduring group.”

In the political arena, Greenfield posits,

Hispanic immigration becomes less politically helpful with each generation. The Dem majorities grow thinner and less reliable. Hispanic immigration, unlike Islamic migration, produces diminishing political returns for its sponsors. The only solution to the retention problem lies with open borders.

The Democrats don’t value the DACA illegal aliens who benefited from Obama’s equally illegal amnesty because, as they claim, they’re really Americans. They only care about them to the extent that they aren’t. And even they’re useful only as a wedge issue for open borders and unlimited migration.

As long as the census counts heads instead of citizens, migration creates Dem districts. And in machine politics, illegal aliens and non-citizens can even vote in those districts. But it’s momentum, not minorities, that the Dems are really after. A constant flow of immigrants transforms America. But when the flow stops, then the immigrants are the ones who become transformed by America.

I agree totally, not simply on theory, but from personal experience. I have known hundreds of people from Latin America who legally moved to the USA generations ago, others who came more recently and legalized their residency status at great expense after arriving here. They may still retain traditions from their faiths, or from their countries of origin, but assimilated American values completely and have thrived.

They are not in favor of open borders.

So I shared Greenfield’s post on Facebook, and this morning I get a notice, “We removed your post because it looks like spam.”

Just last week

[Mark] Zuckerberg, in a sweeping post on Facebook, said the company would change the filter for the News Feed to prioritise what friends and family share, while reducing the amount of non-advertising content from publishers and brands.

On the one hand, “reducing the amount of non-advertising content from publishers and brands,” but they dismiss posts against open borders as spam. On the other hand, my timeline ads features $15,000 ball gowns and jewelry, as far away from my lifestyle as you can get.

Also last week,  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asked his followers to call their congressmen and congresswomen to ask them to solve DACA immigration issues. And yes, FB labels you.

All the same, FB deletes Greenfield’s post as spam.

I don’t know if this is all coincidental, but it sure doesn’t look like it.
