    Immigrants to the United States from 1870 to 1920 were not always welcomed. Many faced unjust and even violent persecution from well-connected nativist groups, who often acted out of nothing more than ignorance and prejudice.

    No one expressed and condemned the irrationality of the xenophobia exhibited by the nativist groups against immigrants more vividly than Thomas Nast. His cartoon, ironically titled, "Pacific Chivalry: Encouragement to Chinese Immigration," portrays Nast's response to some of the most extreme forms of racism and nativism in the country at the time.

    You see a California native whipping and pulling the hair of a defenseless Chinese immigrant. In the inscription in the background, you can barely see written some of the things that aid the abuser in his cruelty. The inscription reads: "Courts of justice closed to Chinese; extra taxes to Yellowjack."

    What does this cartoon suggest about the means that Chinese and many other immigrants had to resist invasions of their rights and dignity? They had just about no means whatsoever. Nast recognized that many of these productive and peace-loving individuals were barred from resisting their inferior condition by small, well-organized activist groups connected with the legislature and prepared to use all means necessary, from the law to vigilante violence, to damage the immigrants. The American people were not opposed to immigration, but many powerful and well-connected elites of the time were.

    Indeed, the xenophobia against immigrants sometimes reached horrific extremes. There was substantial discrimination against the Chinese in terms of wages and employment conditions in the West, but this passage by historian John Higham refers to some of the more brutal attacks on their freedoms.

    "No variety of anti-European sentiment has ever approached the violent extremes to which anti-Chinese agitation went in the 1870s and 1880s. Lynching, boycotts, and mass expulsions...harassed the Chinese." (Higham 1963)

    Of course, in order to make these actions seem more tolerable in their eyes, nativists tried to justify them by conceiving of Asian immigrants as inferior beings. They could back down somewhat and grant some degree of equality to foreign whites, but this would enable them to play a powerful race card which contained some vicious stereotypes. Anti-immigrant stereotypes were spread by many labor unionists, especially Samuel Gompers, who wrote that "both the intelligence and the prosperity of our working people are endangered by the present immigration. Cheap labor... ignorant labor...takes our jobs and cuts our wages."

    There are numerous fallacies in Gompers's claims. Immigration creates jobs rather than destroying them. Immigrants did not steal jobs, but rather took work that few natives wanted. Half of immigrants were indeed unskilled, but the other half consisted of people just as, if not more than, educated and innovative than the native population. Indeed, without immigrants, American economic prosperity would have been cut by more than half.

    It seems, however, that some debates in American history linger on for centuries. The immigration debate is one of them. Currently, as immigration restrictions in the past thirty years have been laxer than previously, we are experiencing a new massive influx of foreigners into this country. The benefits that these immigrants bring are even more obvious today than ever, but the nativists are still around to attempt to impose stricter quotas and border control measures. They are often still guided by the same fallacious arguments about immigrants stealing jobs or polluting the country's culture.

    Novelist Stephen Vincent Benet offered a powerful response to nativism, relevant both during his time and today: "Remember that when you say, 'I will have none of this exile and this stranger for his face is not like my face and his speech is strange,' you have denied America with that word."

        Those immigrants are no different from Neo Nazis who terrorize and persecute innocent immigrants.

        Both target to persecute and/or exterminate the innocent civilians.

        Be it Salem "witch" hunters or Taliban "infidel" killers, they are in essence not different from each other.

              Lie. Muslims are attacking synagoges, but no Nazis involved. Hate crimes against Jews, whites, and Christians are up. No evidence of hate crimes against Muslims or immigrants.

              Check the FBI real crime statistics.

                1. The main culprit and source of hatred when it came to anti-Jewish attacks was always a Christian Church, throughout entire middle ages, including the mass deportations initiated by King Richard the Lionhearted and many other English and European Kings (of Aragon, France and others).
                Go read the history, see how Jews were fleeing Europe and Inquisition (Spain and Hungary in particular) and seeking refuge in the Ottoman Empire during the balkan wars of 1600-1700.

                Hatred against Jews is deeply ingrained in Christian Religious tradition, as it is peculiarly Christian tradition to accuse Jews of killing the Jesus Christ (who, ironically, himself was a Jew. So, Christians in effect were persecuting and murdering Jews because of Jews allegedly killing another Jew).

                Late Wahabi, Salafi and other contemporary Muslims merely were copy-cats and assimilated the old Christian traditions after World War II, and, if you dig deeper who knows who were agents in charge that were brainwashing Muslims and Arabs to murder and kill their neighbors of thousands of years with whom they have lived in relative peace and harmony before.

                Being now atheist to the core myself, I know all Religions are mere products of human imagination that were and are abused by politicians to manipulate masses and impose mind control over sizable portions of respective populations, so no religion on my eyes deserves to be absolved of guilt when it comes to ethnic and religious persecutions and killings, but as far as persecution of various races, Jews and other religious groups concerned, Muslims have very long way to go to equal the atrocities committed by Medieval Christians.

                So, stick it up your rear end to begin with.


                As to evidence of Crime against minorities in past 10 years, just go and look up , it's all reported on SPLC website, they have statistics , numbers, charts, all you want or need to see what was happening here lately.

                There are some particularly disturbing, twisted and indicative of vicious stupidity of hateful Neo-Nazis crimes in last several years, including the incidents where Sikh men were murdered in different parts of country (one in Texas and another in New Jersey), because they were mistaken for Muslims, due to wearing a turban that looks very much like those worn by Mullahs, calling 24/7 for Jihad on Fox news.

                And what an irony in it: the Sikh men, of all others, the practitioners of Sikh Religion, not even Muslims! Sikhs, mind you, who are in conflict with Muslims over some contentious issues, THEY got killed by bypassing s.h.o.o.t.e.r.s for simply appearing to be Muslims! These are recorded facts.
                One of the murderers was convicted , sentenced to death and executed recently in Texas.

                I have checked REAL statistics and have looked up REAL data, or else I wouldn't be writing what I do.

                  Some simple facts to highlight how artificial Christianity is, based on pure falsehoods, myths, astrology and Caesar strokes of a bird pen..

                  First lightning bolt: the three stars in the Constellation of Orion. This is where the story of the three Kings coming from the East to bow in front of the new King comes from, the story found in the Gospels is simply based on the pagan then worldwide known myth of the three stars in the constellation of Orion, still visible today in the autumn skyy indeed.
                  Here's a little trivia tidbit - just a few weeks ago, if not days there had been a new nova explosion not far from the Orion constellation which created a very bright new star. According to the pagan astrology we should be expecting a new King, maybe a new Messiah coming to the Earth soon enough, or maybe he's just been born. If we lived in those ancient times, a visit of three foreign ambassadors to the King Obama would be a sure sign of him being the new Messiah, which would prompt attempts of his assassination from some neo nazi factions currently known under the banner of teabaggers.
                  But I digress. This is only one of many myths the stories of Jesus, his actual name being Joshua in his lifetime, was transformed into Jesus to match the then most popular earthly egyptian god Horus.
                  Joshua + Horus = Jesus. Nobody called Joshua Jesus in his lifetime.
                  Why did the transformation take place a hundred years later by the four gospel writers? It's simple, so that people believed Jesus was as godly as Horus. The smart writers knew the mentality of people, by the simple mechanism of word association.
                  And of course the last but not the least (right in this post because I could expand on every single biblical gospel story to trace its true origin), the fact of Caesar Constantine in 345 A.D. signing a piece of paper using simple ink that stated and sealed the order that Jesus previously known as carpenter Joshua was God, or the Son of God. No one previously in his time or between 0 A.D. and 345 A.D. believed or thought Joshua was God, nor did he ever claim to have been one.

                  No human being can create a god out of a human, or out of the air just because they say so. Thus so, logically, there is no such thing as God, and everyone sooner or later meets this reality.
                  I prefer to meet reality now during my lifetime than be smashed with it at the end. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

                  I have started few threads with stand up comedians making healthy fun of religion and religious people. Feel free to post there your religious views.

                  This thread is about the Xenophobia and current air of hatred and persecution against immigrants of certain appearance and assumed ethnic and religious background which lately gains wide spread support among various groups of population.

                  There is currently a lot of alien-phobia that manifests itself as part of daily routine now and my goal here is to speak about various aspects and hardships of being an alien here now.

                  I mentioned religion in response to fede who appeared to suggest that there ever existed or exists a religion in the world that has hated and persecuted Jews as much or more than Christians did. I didn't mean to turn this thread into place to discuss religion per se (I have other,very funny threads to do that).
