Check Your Skin Color – Because That’s Your Privilege

Belmont Club » Man Without a Country

And it’s not just America. Other countries are in similar case. It’s amusing to read the papers bemoaning how many ‘Norwegians’, ‘Germans’ or ‘Scotsmen’ are joining ISIS and vowing to make the black flag of the Jihad fly over the Westminster or the White House. But what they really mean is that the Jihadi  holds a Norwegian, German or British passport. Nationality has become reduced to documentation. To suggest otherwise is, well, racist.

But to note it is also racist. So where do we go from that?

I think there are still a hell of a lot of Americans who think of themselves as Americans. And if push comes to shove – that is, if they get pushed and shoved hard enough, they may demonstrate how they really feel about hyphenated wreckers of the American dream.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
