Gratuitous Drudge Observation

So Drudge is running an article from the UK Telegraph with the headline Migrants Push Birthrate in UK to Highest In 26 Years....

Amongst other things, the report carries these spooky factoids:

The last decade has seen a 77 per cent increase in births by mothers born outside of the UK, with the figure climbing to almost 150,000, or over a fifth of all babies, last year.

As Britain's demographics change, Mohammed is expected soon to replace Jack as the most popular boy's name. It has already pushed Thomas into third place.

So what pic does Matt use to illustrate the piece?


I'm reasonably sure that neither of these little tykes is named Mohammed.

Maybe I've been o.d.ing on Mark Steyn lately, but this strikes me as an example of wilfull blinkeredness. Europe has a serious, serious native demographic problem, and when you look at the numbers illustrating the comparative explosion of immigrant populations (mostly of Middle Eastern and North African extraction), coupled with almost daily examples of the apparent crumpling of traditional British values in the face of aggressive Muslim agitation, you begin to take that Eurabia Caliphate stuff that much more soberly.

I know, I know. You're saying, "Okay, Mr. Smartypants, then why aren't you more worried about the reconquista of the southwestern U.S.? It's the same deal." Well, no it isn't, not yet. Sure it's a concern, but it's not yet a crisis like Europe's because we still have a healthy native birthrate and, as a country, we haven't lost our collective nerve yet.

We also do a better job of turning immigrants into Americans than the Brits do in turning immigrants into Englishmen and women. Hell, my wife is technically an FOB, and she mostly thinks like an American.

Plus, you watch Univision, and it's all game shows and scantily clad women. There's no show where Mickey Mouse is telling the kids about how great it would be to saw off a gringo's head.

The Europeans won't do anything as long as the nanny state is still there to tuck them in bed every night. That's about as far as they want to look.

If you lived in a border state inadequately protected and saw the damage up close you might have second thoughts.

You know, I was married for almost six-hundred six years and just hated it, despite how cool a woman my wife ex-wife was. I've never been more miserable than when I had to make room in my life for someone else (Only child? Check). So my policy has been "no wife, no kids, no pets, and no girlfriends" for a decade next month. I just think I'm better off this way, despite being the last of my line Yeah, mom's pissed).

But with crap like this, I'm almost tempted to become a Mormon polygamist and sire a couple of dozed white kids just out of cultural self defense.
