No one has has more money and fame thrown at her by White fans than Jessica Alba. The daughter of a White mother, Alba herself could as easily be defined as White or Anglo, and has played roles in which her character was indeed, Anglo (Sue Storm in the Fantastic Four movies). Alba's success is entirely predicated on her appeal to White fans in the US. Yet recently, Alba has called Arizona's new immigration law, requiring police to forward to ICE, people who they reasonably suspect might be illegal aliens (while forbidding racial profiling) racist and foolish. This points out the utter futility of the dream of assimilation. Even those with money and fame and fortune, identify with people who are non-White and non-citizens, over their fellow Americans.
If Jessica Alba won't pick the side of her own country, assimilation is an utter failure.
Alba famously plays an ICE agent who rejects enforcing immigration law because it is "racist" in "Machete" and stands up shouting to illegal aliens "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us." Which in turn is the standard slogan for Reconquista folks saying that the US has no right to its territory, and that they are here to take over (and make the US part of Mexico, ruled by Mexicans, with Whites either "going back to Europe" or being officially second class citizens).
Much like Donald E. Westlake's character John Dortmunder, much of the White population must be puzzling, "What's in it for me?" OK, illegal aliens are here to take over. What's in it for me, again? The answer of course, is not much, and that Alba would see no risk in antagonizing her own White fan-base (Mexicans don't go to see her movies, they are not in Spanish) speaks volumes about both assimilation and the movie business. Alba rather than being invested in America's success, and wanting more millions from her White fanbase (her talent is questionable at best and her sex appeal fading as she ages and after motherhood), Alba's money and fame and power leave her free to opine on what's on her mind:
She tells Britain's Daily Record, "It's always been a relevant issue, for me and for Robert, because we grew up with that reality and it just happened to be that a state did something really, really foolish and passed a very racist, foolish law... There's no way we can change it if we all just sit back and do nothing, so it's about engaging and getting people to stand up for their rights."
Assimilation does not work. If it cannot work for Jessica Alba (the picture to the right is Alba, her daughter, and husband), or Robert Rodriguez, for that matter, it cannot work at all. People will always choose, the larger, and more aggressive ethnic and national identity. Even if they have a direct stake (more millions) in making the opposite choice.
Alba's choice, so very public, is likely to provoke opposite choices by the White population. Will a White tax payer base, fund education, welfare, and other social spending benefiting the illegal aliens who claim they didn't cross the border, the border crossed them? That they are here to take over? That Whites should "go back to Europe?" Even Absolute Vodka believes America is "stolen land" to be given back to Mexico. Again, what's in that for me?
Malkin points out the Mexico City-based firm that created the ad, Teran, says its philosophy is advocating "disruption" as a "tool for change" and "agent of growth." The firm encourages "overturning assumptions and prejudices that get in the way of imagining new possibilities and visionary ideas that help create a larger share of the future."
In 2002, a prominent Chicano activist and University of California at Riverside professor, Armando Navarro, told WND he believed secession is inevitable if demographic and social trends continue.
"If in 50 years most of our people are subordinated, powerless, exploited and impoverished, then I will say to you that there are all kinds of possibilities for movements to develop like the ones that we've witnessed in the last few years all over the world, from Yugoslavia to Chechnya," Navarro said.
"A secessionist movement is not something that you can put away and say it is never going to happen in the United States," he contended. "Time and history change."
Essentially, this is the choice being pushed by Alba. Who, all in all, would prefer to live in Mexico than the US.
"You're White, you don't belong here. Go back to Europe. This is Mexican land."
Alba may be prettier. But she espouses the same belief. Whites don't belong here. And if you don't agree you're a "racist." Its like Greg Gutfield's signature line.
Now, the elites and their allies (Jessica Alba, Robert Rodriguez, the woman above in the Brown Beret) might get their way. They have command of the Presidency, likely the Senate, the university system, the non profits and charities. The Bill Gates Foundation, for example, does not provide scholarship for White kids, only non-Whites. White kids need not apply. The media, Hollywood, TV, advertising, all support Reconquista one way or another. So we might see a permanent inclusion of million of illegal aliens, in a post-election general Amnesty. An extended middle finger by Obama to the (current) White majority, applauded by Jessica Alba.
But this action will only intensify the failures of assimilation. Mexicans here, legally or not (Alba's father is a citizen of the US) do not assimilate. Neither do their kids, no matter how much money and fame and fortune are showered upon them and their own interest aligns in favor of assimilation.
Which leaves the White population asking, "What's in it for me?"
Now, Dortmunder is an amusing character to read about, in a comic novel. But a society of Dortmunders is primed for failure. Assimilation has already failed and unless mass action of expulsion of illegals (and anchor babies) is undertaken, demographics alone guarantee a Reconquista. The woman in the Brown Beret is aggressive and revealing because she has already won. But nothing happens in a vacuum. Dortmunder never leaves New York. He's always there, and always the same age, over forty years. But he only does things for money, or petty revenge. He doesn't operate under patriotism, or duty, or honor. His family crest is "Quid lucrum istic mihi est?" A crest which he stole.
A nation of Dortmunders is a guarantee of collapse. Late Rome consisted of Dortmunders, so too Yeltsin's and Putin's Russia. Dortmunders don't pay taxes. They don't work at jobs, building roads, or doing the "dirty jobs" Mike Rowe is famous for publicizing. They don't clean sewers, or build new ones, lay down gas lines (or fix them before they blow up). Dortmunders are good at getting into places and getting out of them, but not building new power station. Or providing first class medical service.
And this is just where we are headed. The danger of White America is not a resurgence of the Klan, or neo-Nazis, or "White Power," or other faded fantasies of fake menaces beloved by the Left. It is a Dortmunder-esque shrug of the shoulders, and asking Quid lucrum istic mihi est?
That is the true lesson of the failure of assimilation. It provokes its own matching failure, among the White population. Replicating Mexico's failure into America. Nothing more or less. White America won't even work and pay taxes, much less fight or die, for the folks in the Brown Berets. Even if they look like Jessica Alba.
