Steve Sailer writes, in his VDare column:
Kaddafi’s PR offensive in Africa over the last couple of decades was quite a hit with sub-Saharan Africa’s naïve. Trevor Johnson wrote in back in 2000:
“…his Pan-African speeches were taken at face value by the thousands of desperately poor Africans who flocked to work in Libya.”
The population of Libya today is about 6.5 million. By one estimate, there are 1.0 to 1.5 million black African immigrants in Libya.
The natives of Libya have not, on the whole been happy about the influx. Margaret Bald observed in 2000 after urban clashes between Libyan natives and West Africans:
“’Libyans resent the money the immigrants make…and perceive these outsiders as beneficiaries of Gaddafi’s support for African union,’ wrote Cameron Duodu for London’s Gemini News Service (Oct. 6). Gaddafi has been touring the continent to promote the formation of a United States of Africa.”
Still, why would African immigrants want to stay permanently in horrible Libya, when lovely Europe is just a Mediterranean boat ride away?
And this provided Kaddafi with yet another way to benefit from immigration: by blackmailing the Italians into paying him to take back the African illegal immigrants who had set out from his shores. Libya formerly refused to accept them until after each illegal immigrant’s lengthy European Union refugee status hearings had been exhausted—during which, of course, many aliens simply vanished.
I have long held that, if current trends remain unchanged, the entire world will eventually be black. The reason is that blacks tend to form the most dysfunctional societies and to have the most babies. Those excess babies (a heartless term, I know) grow up and move to more desirable parts of the world if they can. This is nature taking its course when local populations let down their guard.
But Libya is an example of another dynamic: rulers actively importing large numbers of blacks to dissolve the national identity of their own people – thus allowing said rulers to seize even more power due to more racial conflict on the street. Why do politicians like blacks? Their lower average I.Q. makes them more easily manipulated. Their higher crime, disease and social pathology rates give those in power more excuses to expand government in law enforcement and social programs. They serve to balkanize society, thus creating a greater need for government moderators to tame the resultant rivalries. Qadhafi likes them because they (the mercenaries, that is) have few qualms about shooting innocent women and children.
Many pro-white activists care nothing about Libya. It doesn’t bother them that a formerly Caucasian nation is now almost a quarter black. It should bother them; as Sailor has pointed out, the tide will not magically stop at the borders of Africa. Furthermore, Libya was an ancient home of whites. There are still remnants of this white population among them. As for me, my own personal opinion is that what Qadhafi has done is an inexcusable crime. It is genocide against his own people and I hope, when he is toppled, that Libyans expel every one of those Africans back to the South. As a person of mixed Middle-Eastern ancestry myself (being Jewish and all), I see ethnic Libyans as distant cousins and this attack on their national integrity bothers me immensely. Thanks to Qadhafi, we can no longer claim that diversity is imposed exclusively upon white nations. On the bright side, we may some day count Algerians among promoters of HBD.
