Do you believe that new immigrants (middle-eastern, Asian people) will destroy patriotism and American pride in future generations?

Technically we are all illegal immigrants; it's just that the Native Americans did not ask for Visas.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-06T12:10:43.8703612-05:00
The native americans did not have legal control of the US. Besides, they are immigrants to north america too. They also have their own reserves in which the US does not have control over.
TBR says2015-05-06T12:12:22.3544238-05:00
I am not huge into this argument Mathgeekjoe, but this killed me. "The native americans did not have legal control of the US." Legal control as defined by the invaders?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-06T12:20:38.1180300-05:00
Well did the Native Americans have one grand government that defined them as a nation?
TBR says2015-05-06T12:21:32.7868321-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe - And that has nothing to do with it.

They can join in on the fun of American nationalism.

Americans always moan about Mexicans immigrating in and some even want a border fence. But the fact is all Americans are just British who came over and killed the natives then like 2 generations later fought there home country for independence. Most "Americans" are just British migrants. So they cant exact;y tell other migrants not to come.
dbushwacker says2015-05-06T13:21:47.8857758-05:00
Not really Pro, British is big but not as big as the German sects that came after and during the Protestant reformation that continued to rage and embroil central Europe. Irish could've been bigger but they were masacred during the civil war as they were conscripted as they got off the ships.

dbushwacker says2015-05-06T13:22:51.8479252-05:00
I'd know, cause I'm old English, Welsh and newer German, Norwegian:)
dbushwacker says2015-05-06T13:27:08.3610132-05:00
Oh, but Mexican is getting up there. Whoa, knocked out English in the course of 10 years.

Question: Why just Middle-Easterners and Asians? What about Europeans and Hispanics?
uglie-boy says2015-05-07T07:26:04.4000943-05:00
White people are immigrants
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T07:46:32.8224089-05:00
@ungly-boy everyone is immigrant.
uglie-boy says2015-05-07T07:54:59.6176080-05:00
I'm just saying that why would you say middle eastern and asian people when white people are immigrants as well
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T08:02:09.6880397-05:00
Because the question wasn't talking about immigrants in general but specifically that group.
dbushwacker says2015-05-07T08:39:19.6620349-05:00
@Triangle I don't know if you were talking to me, but if you were then you definitely aren't familiar enough with me to call me a racist. I don't know how big of an ignorant bigot you are to cast your own judgement upon me without Knowing me, but you best know that I'm usually a well humored guy that likes to make some comical relief. So if I were you I'd shut that stupid prissy mouth of yours. But if you weren't then forgive me, but otherwise keep your mouth shut. Thank you :)
TBR says2015-05-07T09:48:29.6993283-05:00
Came back to see a healthy split on this poll. That makes me happy.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T09:51:43.1492727-05:00
What split?
TBR says2015-05-07T09:58:09.7846295-05:00
23:2 MGJ
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:03:03.4831398-05:00
The two would likely be heil and genesis, those votes really don't mean much.
TBR says2015-05-07T10:05:30.1107005-05:00
MGJ, I think there are a lot of people who think this. Just glad they aren't part of the site.
retrogamer176 says2015-05-07T10:19:39.4375633-05:00
@MGJ It's actually royan and rhodesia, not heil and genesis. And this moderation filter can GO AWAY!!!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:24:27.0576654-05:00
I am probably glad that the filter didn't leave you say what you wanted to originally.
TBR says2015-05-07T10:26:02.6981184-05:00
Are you saying the filter has never trashed one of your posts MGJ?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:27:12.6545737-05:00
I never said that the filter doesn't need fix. I am just guessing that retrogamer probably didn't have a good post. I am basing my guess on his age and maturity level.
retrogamer176 says2015-05-07T11:42:17.2224678-05:00
@MGJ actually, the post you see was exactly what I was originally trying to post, without the "moderation can go away" part. All I did to make it accepted was add that last part. The filters are screwed up.
triangle.128k says2015-05-07T16:48:01.8346008-05:00
@dbushwacker I didn't call you racist, I was referring to the two voters whom voted yes.
ConceptEagle says2015-05-09T14:46:20.8475778-05:00
We Americans are actually Europeans who stole land from the Mexicans and Native Americans -technically we are semi-violent immigrants. And to say that Mexicans and Native Americans are immigrants too because they moved from Africa-Russia-Alaska-Canada is absurd, because which people were there first?
ConceptEagle says2015-05-09T14:47:02.2973092-05:00
Ahem buffalo and other animals
WNdebater says2015-05-10T15:10:04.6167075-05:00
The "native Americans" came from Asia originally. Don't pull this "We are all immigrants" argument out. I was born in America, as were my parents and grandparents and so on. That makes me as native as them.
