Mass Immigration and the Squeezing of the American Middle and Working Class
avatar By Pawel Styrna   February 23, 2021 No Comments
Michael Anton’s The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return, which was published in the second half of 2020, is a book about the stark choice the United States faced in the (then) impending presidential election and – one may add – which the country continues to face. But The Stakes is also a critical analysis of what the author calls the modern-day America’s woke-globalist “regime” and “ruling class.” Although the book is not mainly or exclusively about immigration, the issue is nevertheless important to Anton’s narrative.

The author – a national security official in the Trump administration, a lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College, and a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute – espouses a clearly “nationalist-populist” brand of conservatism. Thus, he considers increasing economic inequality in this country a major problem which will, if left unchecked, ultimately turn the U.S. into a banana republic where a small oligarchy of hyper-rich plutocrats rule over a mass of poor and dependent subjects.
Give a Democrat a fish and he'll eat for a day.  Teach a Democrat to fish and he'll steal your rod, take your wallet, sexually assault the fish, and then blame President Trump.
