Fulford quotes a 2014 VDARE piece by fellow white nationalist Peter Brimelow:
... why didn’t the U.S. just invade Cuba after the [collapse of the] Soviet Union [in] 1991, when it was completely isolated and falling apart? We invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, didn’t we? At least by invading Cuba, we could have got Miami back.Yes, that would have been the point of an invasion to overthrow Castro: to get Miami back. While traditional conservatives loved the Cuban exile community -- at least until a younger generation started voting Democratic -- to Brimelow it was an invading force of Hispanics, and it was high time in 1991 to take the city back for the master race.
Fulford's take is a bit more nuanced. He quotes a piece of mainstream journalism from earlier in Brimelow's career -- a comment on Cuba written for Forbes in 1998. Fulford's gloss on the piece is in bold below:
A 1956 U.S. Department of Commerce guide for businessmen flatly said that “Cuba is not an underdeveloped country in the sense usually associated with that term,” citing its infrastructure, industrial development and large middle class. [VDARE.com Note: Large WHITE middle class -- i. e. people like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.]Its living standards were reported to be among the highest in Latin America -- then.Cuba wasn't a Third World country pre-Castro, you see, because of all those white people!
But those white Cubans still annoy the racists. In the 2014 Brimelow piece quoted by Fulford, the word "Miami" links to fellow VDARE-ite Steve Sailer's review of Tom Wolfe's 2012 novel about Miami, Back to Blood. Sailer praises the novel for its ethnic determinism and its belief in the unworkability of immigration. To Wolfe and Sailer, it's true that the Miami Cubans are not of the truly inferior races. Sailer writes:
... neither the Vietnamese nor Cubans are representative of the effects of immigration in general: both are anti-Communist refugees from the upper reaches of their home societies.But Cubans are still not quite on a par with white Americans -- they drift to the left and they're just not bright enough, says Sailer, invoking a couple of characters in Wolfe's novel:
Back To Blood reminds me that the conservative Brain Trust has long assumed that immigrants will become more Republican as they assimilate. Yet, in Miami, where the immigrants started out as fanatical Republicans for foreign policy reasons, the American-born Cubans have been trending Democratic. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Obama carried 60 percent of American-born Cubans....Yeah, they may be white, and descended from "the upper reaches" in Cuba, but they're still a bunch of dumb Hispanics.
Although the Miami Cubans in Back To Blood are all white conservatives, they see Anglo whites as The Other: “Americanos.” They use this term even when, as in Nestor’s case, they can’t actually speak much Spanish themselves.
... Wolfe emphasizes [that] the younger Cubans like Nestor and Magdalena are constantly reminded when they speak to Americanos that their vocabularies in English tend to be smaller, which leaves them embarrassed and unhappy.
Wolfe is the master of portraying embarrassment; in particular, he can intuit what people with 95 IQs find humiliating, a subject most writers are oblivious to.
Which brings us back to James Fulford's response to Castro's death. He hopes there'll be a reverse migration to Cuba, though he worries that the opposite will be the case:
... this happy event may result in increased Cuban immigration to Florida, where there’s already a Cuban colony. Perhaps, instead, some migration should flow the other way?But if that happens, he has a solution:
... if what we get is a huge Cuban refugee boatlift, I want to remind you of my 2001 modest proposal for dealing with refugees, addressed to the then President of Mexico: Dear Mr. Fox: Please Find Attached our Poor/ Tired/ Dispossessed, Etc.In the unlikely event of another Mariel boatlift, I could really imagine Trump trying to do this.
If a large number of Spanish-speaking refugees are leaving Cuba, there’s no reason why the United States can’t route them south to Mexico, which must be experiencing labor shortages now, and which can always use new entrepreneurs.
And if the Mexicans don’t want to accept them, they can explain it to President Trump.
