Fjordman rarely reports on the situation in the USA, preferring instead to concentrate on alarming events in Europe. However, yesterday he sent us the following email about the rapid Mexification of California.
Hello from Fjordman.
I got some angry comments at Little Green Footballs when I said that the violence by Mexican gangs in LA is close to what should be called ethnic cleansing. But judging from this latest story in The Guardian, I think that term is appropriate. And to your American readers: This is one of the reasons why I haven’t left Europe for the USA yet. First of all because I think it’s too early to say that Europe is lost, and second, because I am rather worried by the trends I see in the US, and wonder whether I would be leaving one sinking ship in favor of another sinking ship.
The United States may well have signed its own death warrant as a country when it decided to be a “universal” nation. There is no such thing. Either you abandon that idea or it will kill your country and kill the American dream. It is pretty bad when California, which has attracted people from all over the United States for 150 years and has been the economic engine not just of the US, but of the world for generations, now starts becoming a region where educated, dynamic people leave because they can no longer stand living there.
I know many people believe that the 21st century will be a contest between China and the United States. Yes, China faces many internal challenges, corruption, environmental problems and political censorship. However, I am pretty sure that an entity recognizable as China will still exist in the middle or second half of this century. I cannot say that with equal confidence about the USA. You are much less ethnically homogeneous than China, and risk clinging to this near-religious idea that all cultures are equally compatible with US dynamism and that all religious, ethnic, cultural and racial tensions that plague the rest of mankind will somehow magically disappear the second immigrants set foot on US soil. They won’t.

From The Guardian:
A bloody conflict between Hispanic and black gangs is spreading across Los Angeles. Hundreds are dying as whole districts face the threat of ethnic cleansing.
From The Los Angeles Times:
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Police Chief William J. Bratton and L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca all spoke with unusual candor of their concern that an increasing number of gang crimes appear to be born out of racial hatred. In a few instances, the Los Angeles Police Department has identified Latino gangs they say are indiscriminately targeting African American residents in what appear to be campaigns to drive blacks from some neighborhoods.
From Discover the Networks:
“Since 9/11 alone, about 45,000 U.S. residents have been killed in action via homicide or manslaughter at the hands of illegal aliens, and about another quarter of a million to 300,000 have been wounded,” said Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project.
In Los Angeles, gang violence has gotten so bad that the city council wants to raise taxes in order to fight it… The city already spends $82 million on touchy-feely gang outreach, with little result.
