THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA: CALIFORNIA'S GROWING THIRD WORLD POPULATION
June 4, 2012
California mutating into another country
In this final part of Victor Davis Hanson’s assessment of California, he discovered, as I also witnessed, a complete ‘mutation’ of California from an American state to a linguistic, racial and religious polyglot—unable to function financially, educationally, lawfully and ethically. In his “Two California’s: Abandoned farms, Third World living conditions, pervasive public assistance -- welcome to the once-thriving Central Valley,” he discovered the same things I watched devolve in my five bicycle trips the length and width of that once gorgeous state.
It took 40 years to end up in a quagmire today, and, more sobering, it will not climb out of its hole. Like all third world countries, illiteracy grows faster than it can be cured. California will not be able to ‘right’ itself without the federal government finally issuing a ‘moratorium’ on all immigration and enforcement of U.S. laws.
Ironically, many of its most crime-ridden cities, collapsing hospitals, failing schools and overloaded prisons make their homes in ‘sanctuary cities’ where illegals enjoy immunity from arrest, conviction and deportation.
In California, a whopping four million illegals work, live and cheat on taxes everyday of their stay in America. Legal immigrants ride the welfare rolls like an art form. Regular Californians watch their state ‘mutate’ into another country right before their eyes.
Hanson watched from the side lines:
“Fresno’s California State University campus is embroiled in controversy over the student body president’s announcing that he is an illegal alien, with all the requisite protests in favor of the DREAM Act,” said Hanson. “I won’t comment on the legislation per se, but again only note the anomaly. I taught at CSUF for 21 years. (Dream Act failed last Saturday)
“I think it fair to say that the predominant theme of the Chicano and Latin American Studies program’s sizable curriculum was a fuzzy American culpability. By that I mean that students in those classes heard of the sins of America more often than its attractions. In my home town, Mexican flag decals on car windows are far more common than their American counterparts.
“I note this because hundreds of students here illegally are now terrified of being deported to Mexico. I can understand that, given the chaos in Mexico and their own long residency in the United States. But here is what still confuses me: If one were to consider the classes that deal with Mexico at the university, or the visible displays of national chauvinism, then one might conclude that Mexico is a far more attractive and moral place than the United States.
“So there is a surreal nature to these protests: something like, “Please do not send me back to the culture I nostalgically praise; please let me stay in the culture that I ignore or deprecate.” I think the DREAM Act protestors might have been far more successful in winning public opinion had they stopped blaming the U.S. for suggesting that they might have to leave at some point, and instead explained why, in fact, they want to stay. What it is about America that makes a youth of 21 go on a hunger strike or demonstrate to be allowed to remain in this country rather than return to the place of his birth?”
Paradoxical love-hate relationship of illegal aliens
Anywhere you travel in southern California, outside of American enclaves, you will see a definite bias ‘for’ Mexico and a ‘definite’ hate for America. On the one hand, they love to look back at their homeland as ‘wondrous’, but wouldn’t return to the poverty since America offers toilets, showers and an apartment to live a normal life—along with abundant grocery stores.
“I think I know the answer to this paradox,” said Hanson. “Missing entirely in the above description is the attitude of the host, which by any historical standard can only be termed “indifferent.” California does not care whether one broke the law to arrive here or continues to break it by staying. It asks nothing of the illegal immigrant — no proficiency in English, no acquaintance with American history and values, no proof of income, no record of education or skills.
“It does provide all the public assistance that it can afford (and more that it borrows for), and apparently waives enforcement of most of California’s burdensome regulations and civic statutes that increasingly have plagued productive citizens to the point of driving them out. How odd that we over-regulate those who are citizens and have capital to the point of banishing them from the state, but do not regulate those who are aliens and without capital to the point of encouraging millions more to follow in their footsteps. How odd — to paraphrase what Critias once said of ancient Sparta — that California is at once both the nation’s most unfree and most free state, the most repressed and the wildest.
“Hundreds of thousands sense all that and vote accordingly with their feet, both into and out of California — and the result is a sort of social, cultural, economic, and political time-bomb, whose ticks are getting louder.”
I cannot help but see that ticking becoming louder as angry, disenfranchised and arrogant Mexican nationals stomp on the American flag, throw trash everywhere possible instead of a trash can, and they flunk out of schools as a cultural prerogative. It’s as if they think or regard illiteracy as their greater good. But, they trash America while they cash U.S. food stamps.

Even more disturbing: California grows by 1,700 people per day along with an added 400 vehicles to service that number. It also must build a school per week to keep with educating them, which it can’t. Thus, a growing third world entrenched poverty class with no solutions.
Victor Davis Hanson wrote a brilliant book: Mexifornia. That book shows the transformation and devolution of California into a third world country. It portends sobering realities for all of America where third world immigrants dominate welfare rolls, food stamps, housing and hospitals with their endless stream of babies.
