Coulter would not Vote for an Indian

Leftists are cying racism about this interview:
"Its About Your Loyalty, Who Do You Support?" - Vivek Ramaswamy and Ann Coulter on Citizenship
Coulter is correct that immigrants and first-generation Americans do not get Americanism at all. The come from dictatorial countries, and do not understand American freedoms.

Some say that after a citizenship ship, they can make their loyalites to the USA. Others say that after a generation or so, they will assimilate, and be just like Americans.

Coulter points out that America was created by WASPs:

In the United States, White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASP) is a sociological term which is often used to describe white Protestant Americans of Northwestern European descent, who are generally part of the white dominant culture or upper-class and historically often the Mainline Protestant elite.[2][3] Historically or most consistently, WASPs are of British descent, though the definition of WASP varies in this respect.[4] WASPs have dominated American society, culture, and politics for most of the history of the United States. Critics have disparaged them as "The Establishment".[5][6] Although the social influence of wealthy WASPs has declined since the 1960s,[7][8][9] the group continues to play a central role in American finance, politics, and philanthropy.[10]
The Leftists are saying that she votes based on skin color, but that is not what she is saying.

The comments I say just used name-calling, and made no substantive arguments. It seems to me that there are two arguments they could be making.

(1) Immigrants will eventually assimilate, and become just like WASPs.

(2) WASPs just just accept that they are being replaced by foreigners with other values.

Perhaps (1) has happened with Irish and Genrmans, but has not happened with most other immigrant groups.

So that leaves us with (2). The Leftists are not really arguing against racism, but against Americanism.

I suffered through it at UAB.

In comparison, I am happy that I didn't make your (and Coulter's (or Ramaswamy's)) country my home.

Enough said in that regard. Here. [I've posted a bit about your Ray Thompson at my blog in the past too. [BTW, Prof. Kajale, the gentleman who graduated me with a PhD, unfortunately passed away too early, before he could see what I could and did achieve already.] Enough again.]
