Anti-Immigrant Leader Mark Krikorian Cites White Supremacist in National Review Column
Right Wing Watch notices today that in his latest column for the National Review, Center for Immigration Studies director Mark Krikorian is openly citing infamous white nationalist Sam Francis: Krikorian Cites White Nationalist in Anti-Reform Pitch.
In his latest column for the National Review Online, Krikorian responds to a New York Times report this weekend that President Obama’s DACA order has created a backlog of immediate family members of U.S. citizens who are now separated from their families as they wait an unconscionably long time for visas.
Krikorian, of course, sees this not as an administrative failure that might be fixed by White House attention or a comprehensive immigration reform package, but as an indictment of the very concept of immigration reform. To back up his case, he cites a term, “anarcho-tyranny,” coined by white nationalist Sam Francis in his fight against multiculturalism and ” the transformation of American society by millions of aliens .”
“I wasn’t a fan of Sam Francis,” Krikorian writes, “but his concept of ’ anarcho-tyranny’ describes this perfectly.”
We’re glad to learn that Krikorian “wasn’t a fan” of Francis, who edited a white supremacist journal and wanted to seal the border and impose “fertility controls on nonwhites.”
Lovely. This is like saying, “I wasn’t a fan of Hitler, but he did have a way with words.”
And of course, this is far from the first time white nationalists have appeared in the pages of National Review:
