Caring only about future ‘shareholders’, not current ones

11 Nov

The thought strikes: this idea of Sailer’s, which I infer from the above comment refers to wide-open immigration enthusiasts being more interested in prospective future ‘shareholders’ (i.e. immigrants) rather than current ones, i.e. old-stock real Americans (and Canadians, up here), has even wider application:

Not only is this true of progs and the woke business class, but also the neo-con Republicans who betray the white Republican base in favour of hypothetical potential black and Hispanic voters (and thus, due to going after the latter desired new voter group, going along with progs / the woke business class in wanting wider immigration, ignoring that such clashes with the interests of the former desired new voter group), ignoring their loyal white voters. (Ditto with Canada’s political class, and the pro- wide-open immigration stance of our entire political establishment, across all Canada’s main parties, alas…)

Also, one sees a parallel in evangelicalism: always with the altar calls, and invitations to come to faith in sermons, thus milk for newcomers rather than meat for old believers; always trying to be seeker-sensitive, focused too much on creating converts while ignoring the needs of the loyal regular long-term members.

I guess America’s business culture impacts politics and faith, innit? (Both down there and up here in Canada, too, naturally, given our close cultural and business ties…)

Consume products / consumers / citizens then get excited for next products / consumers / citizens!

    The other new ‘thing’ that evangelicals always get excited about are whenever they have a new pastor or youth pastor or whatever. I remember a pretty young evangelical gal dental hygienist I used to chat with while she was attending to my teeth, who was always excited to report to me “our church has a new pastor!”. Over and over. This church, which didn’t even call itself one but instead a ‘Christian fellowship’, advertised itself on its sign as ‘a place of new beginnings’ (which is redundant as well as awkward and nonsensical; aren’t all beginnings new by definition? and what does that even mean?), so they were fixed on the new, the novel. Their formerly-blue-now-gold dove-like logo looks exactly like the blue Twitter dove. I’ve long wished Twitter would sue them over it… 😉

    New Beginnings like being a “born again virgin.” Lots of shameless whores at the “Sunday Morning Night Club.”

      Indeed. We’ve discussed the Sunday Morning Night Club before; e.g. here and here

    Evangelical churches don’t even offer spiritual milk; the only thing they offer, most of them, can best be described as spiritual “junk food,” corrupted Scripture stripped of its truth and power in order to tickle itchy ears with lies and deceit. A perfect poison for the New Prog Order.

      Alas, all too often true…

    To carry the stock analogy further, the Class A is held by the oligarch class, and only they get to put forward candidates for directorship. The Class A is never diluted. The Class B get to “vote” among the directors put forward by the Class A holders. Class B is constantly being diluted with new offerings, and Class A get to decide who the new Class B holders will be.

    What do you all think of Fuentes?

      I’m not entirely sure what to think of him, but I will say: he has the right enemies; useless neo-cons like Charlie Kirk, Ben Shapiro, etc.

      So good on the groypers for exposing neo-con bullshit, whatever one may personally think of Nick Fuentes.
