The Brawl in the Hall


Texas Rep. Matthew Rinaldi during the altercation in the House of Representatives last month.

Late last month, something entirely expected happened: Hispanic Democrats, on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, revealed their contempt for the law and for the country in which they live through acts of bullying and violence [2]. They also tried to shout down the one person willing to enforce the law, Republican Representative Matthew Rinaldi.

Really, who here thought this could have happened any other way?

This minor news story began when, during the last day of a one hundred forty-day legislative session, a large group of mostly Hispanic protesters crashed the lawmakers’ chamber to object to the passing of a bill which would, in effect, ban sanctuary cities in Texas. This bill, SB4, would potentially jail local law enforcement agents if they do not enforce federal immigration laws.

Dressed mostly in red, the protesters were, as one would imagine, quite loud and boisterous. They also held signs claiming, “I’m illegal and I’m here to stay.” [3] Democrat Hispanic lawmakers Ramon Romero and César Blanco reportedly waved to the boisterous crowd, as if egging them on. Soon after the intrusion, Representative Rinaldi, who is known as an immigration hawk, decided that he had had enough. In a single move, both cruel and beautiful, he hit the protesters where they were most vulnerable: he called US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to report and possibly deport them. Not only this, Rinaldi then fearlessly announced what he had done to Romero and Blanco on the House floor.

As expected, the Hispanic lawmakers reacted violently. They initiated a shoving match and followed it with various physical threats. Later, Rinaldi referred to their actions as “basically just bullying.” One of the Hispanic lawmakers, one Poncho Nevárez, then threatened to “come get him,” whatever that means. And in response, Rinaldi, like any good, independent-minded Texan, promised to shoot Nevárez in order to defend himself. According to witnesses, Rinaldi said he’d put a bullet in the man’s head.

As well he should have said. Who knows what “come get him” means? Perhaps the lawmaker who threatened Rinaldi has ties to the Mexican mafia or to Hispanic street gangs or the Mexican drug cartels. It wouldn’t be the first time a Hispanic lawmaker was beholden to criminal elements [4]. It’s perfectly reasonable to assume that Rinaldi feared for his life. And so, like a man, he made his opponent fear for his life as well. Shortly after the altercation, Rinaldi announced that he was under police protection.

This kind of standoff is ancient, but sadly not too common among white people these days when dealing with obnoxious behavior from non-whites. Seeing Rinaldi stand up not only to near-riotous protesters but also to elected thugs in expensive suits is heartening indeed. The altercation was also uncommon in the civilized world because it happened in the halls of government. Violence is not supposed to happen there, and it usually doesn’t, except in the Third World. Click here [5] and here [6] and here [7] to view how Third Worlders feel about decorum and etiquette in government. In light of this evidence, it should come as no surprise that importing Third World people into First World countries and then bestowing political rights upon them will result in this sort of chaos.

If we step back and analyze this story, we can make useful distinctions between the two opposing sides. One side (Rinaldi’s) is fighting to protect a law which would help preserve a white majority in a white-founded country. Rinaldi himself may not ascribe to this reasoning – at least not in public. But that’s what he is doing, and that is exactly what his constituents want him to do. There is no other explanation, since Rinaldi has repeatedly run on an anti-immigration platform [8] in a state which shares a one thousand nine hundred-mile long border with a foreign country that cannot wait to inflict low-IQ immigrants upon us, who in turn take away low-paying jobs and are not shy about going on government assistance. There is also no other explanation for Donald Trump’s unprecedented popularity among Republican voters during the 2016 election. By promising to build the wall and deport Muslims, he tapped into their latent racial resolve. Most whites might hesitate to put it in such frank terms because it is still considered impolite for them to publicly promote their own racial interests, but that is what happened. And fortunately, this “Trump effect” seems to be spreading into the territories, lending backbone to representatives like Matt Rinaldi, who would rather not see his homeland overrun by lawbreakers.

On the other side, what do we have? Of course, the mainstream media would have us believe that these plucky, Hispanic underdogs were only trying to take part in the American dream were it not for big, bad whitey in the form of the racist Matt Rinaldi. But in reality, what are people like Ramon Romero and César Blanco fighting for? They are fighting for two paradoxical things: the right of their people to exploit white taxpayers for handouts and services (as of 2015, 54.1% of Hispanic households [9] were on some kind of public assistance) and the right of their people to ultimately displace whites as the predominant political power in America. Of course, once you kill the golden goose, you’ll have to learn to live without the golden eggs, but that might be a move or two beyond what these two can envision on their red, white, and green chessboard.

Furthermore, by encouraging illegal immigration and then physically assaulting people who rightfully call them out on it, it’s clear that people like Romero and Blanco are willing to bend or break laws to meet these ends. This is what Mexicans do in Mexico, and it is what they are doing here, now that they have political muscles to flex. Again, this should come as a surprise to no one, and it only serves to eloquently explain why there is no place for these people in large numbers in a white-run country.

This is a clear good guy/bad guy situation, and you don’t have to be Alt Right to see who’s on what side here. As for the bill itself, it is an excellent start. Whether you wish to merely advocate for white people or to forge a whites-only ethnostate in North America, deincentivizing illegal immigration by killing sanctuary cities can only be a good thing. And if the Hispanics want to fight us over it the way Ramon Romero and César Blanco tried to on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, we should respond exactly as Matt Rinaldi did, by saying no and then by appealing to arms if they don’t give up and go home.

This sounds harsh even to me as I type this, but it is the necessary conclusion one must come to in any circumstance in which First World people are being made to suffer the presence of large numbers of Third Worlders in their nations. They will push us and they will exploit us until we are no longer there to push or exploit. We can certainly count on Third Worlders to behave like those boisterous Hispanic protesters and lawmakers did in the Texas House last month. Whether we can count on a critical mass of white people to stand up to them like Matt Rinaldi did remains to be seen. I believe that nothing less than the future of Western civilization hinges upon the answer to this one question.
