Latinos as a stage army for élites
I give Sailer’s premise about genetics and talent a hearing (enough to get you kicked out of polite society as a not-nice white person) but I don’t go along with his goal — writing the law to keep out immigrants he says are genetically inferior (which really is racist — the factors he writes about are not determinative). Here he makes a good point. In other words, as the Anti-Gnostic has noted, élites don’t really care about the bourgeois they want to rule; likewise the left don’t really like Latinos any more than Sailer does.

In a way what he criticises about Mexicans is a good thing, a traditional and Catholic one: being familial and local (gotta love subsidiarity) and not statist like the president neither of us likes.
