Appears to be a fuckwit, ought to be in RSTDT.

"WHITE people founded this country, not “immigrants”."
And those white people immigrated from where?
"They assimilated very successfully, thank you."
Yes, killing the indigenous population and stealing their land is a sure sign of proper assimilation. [/sarcasm] The white people didn't assimilate, they conquered.

Many of the whites who built this country used scores of black slaves to do it.

You forgot to claim that the Chinese immigrants didn't build the railroads.

"The “immigrants” that contributed were white. They assimilated very successfully, thank you."
So...you traded Yahweh for the likes of Wankan Tanka, Grandmother Spider, White Buffalo Calf Woman & Quetzalcoatl? You like frybread, pemmican & buffalo? Wear buckskins, sealskin parkas, or perhaps, when it's a really hot climate...almost au-naturele? Please demonstrate your mad longhouse-building skillz! C'mon! Show us your complex, super-accurate stone calender & those muy-cool pyramids! Brew us a mean mate! SHELL MOUNDS! Can you make shell mounds like those guys in South Florida?
There's also a big absurdity in this quote:
"WHITE people founded this country, not “immigrants”. The “immigrants” that contributed were white. They assimilated very successfully, thank you."
But how can you, being "immigrants", contribute if you're not "immigrants" yet "immigrants" contributed....OH, NEVER MIND!

Killing and displacing Native Americans does not constitute "immigrating successfully."

Others have pointed out the irony of a white guy being racist against immigrants, so I'll point out how this is both DARVO and/or a really shiny mirror.

Leighton, you're right. This guy is a fuckwit who belongs in RSTDT. What bothers me is that comments like this are getting increasingly numerous, intrusive, virulent, violent, and *seditious*. I suspect that, at a minimum, we are looking at a major incident soon. Meanwhile, I wish the likes of Lift His Leg would confine their attentions to fire hydrants.

Also, the President's personal raper? The hell?

"Mexicans? Lol. Come to AZ, and witness for yourself."
Leaving aside the problem that Arizona was once part of Mexico...

Yes, the white people assimilated quite well into North American society. That's why there are so many white people using traditional buffalo hunting techniques and regularly visiting their shaman for spiritual advice.
Oh, wait, you're talking about assimilating into the society that they imposed on North America. My bad.

The colony of Jamestown was founded by tobacco farmers whose plantations were cultivated by slaves. The income generated by plantations like these later became the funding capital of the American Revolution. Most of the Founding Fathers owned slaves, including Thomas Jefferson. Those slaves worked so their "masters" could spend their time studying, philosophizing, lawyering and come up with the framework for the world's first modern nation state. Black slaves built the Capitol and the White House.
Without black people, the USA wouldn't exist.

WHITE people founded this country, not “immigrants”.
Actually, the Dutch had settled here before most of the English (New York used to be called New Amsterdam!), so technically, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and other "founding" documents were done by the immigrant English.
Blacks have NEVER assimilated.
Darn right! In the South they insisted on having their own "colored" rest rooms, schools and drinking fountains. Plus they made the white folks ride in the front of the bus with the nerds instead of in the back with the cool kids. And they snatched up all the good jobs like picking cotton, mopping floors and loading trucks while the whites were left with crappy stuff like owning stores, running the railroads and managing banks. [/sarcasm]

@demodocos: that is a surprisingly depressing consideration... look where you guys are now. i took your last sentence to mean:
"blacks got whipped, raped, scragged, and overworked to create the country..." (your part)"...and now check out how ungrateful and ignorant the country is"(my part)
this is truly getting depressing that such stupidity and bigotry is killing that country. all countries for that matter. nofx was right when they sang "the idiots have taken over" in 2003 (the war on errorism, btw)

"WHITE people founded this country, not 'immigrants'."
Did you miss every single history lesson in school, or what? The white people WERE immigrants, idiot! The native Americans are the non-immigrants, and many of the black people were brought to America by force.

"Did you just disparage blacks, and say the word “nigger”? You are a filthy racist! I just hope and pray that the OTHER side (LOLing at “us” for self censoring..) doesn’t get wind of you using a word that THEY are allowed to RAP incessantly"
"Our” side doesn’t exist in Washington. So we…call each other racist…"
Thus, speaking as a white person, I can therefore refer to you and your right-wing inbred trailer-trash Neocunt Teabagger ilk as inferior subhumans. Because that's what you are.
Deal with it, honky cracka ghost.

The white immigrants didn't assimilate successfully at first, it took more than a generation. The Irish and the Eastern Europeans were treated like trash, they were often poor and they were forced to work in factories and coal mines or serve in the military.
Much like how Hispanic immigrants are now treated like trash, they are often poor and are forced to work in factories and on farms or serve in the military.
Also he forgets to mention that the black "immigration" was a forced one.
