This is a new spin on the universal right to be an American. Steve Sailer rightly takes the spinners to task:
King John should have had Ilya Somin working for him doing spin at Runnymede in 1215. He would have shamed those aristocrats into giving up all their hereditary rights to the autocrat.
Do you ever get the feeling that, leaving aside minor details about what kind of economic system, the Soviet Union will eventually triumph over the United States due to the sophistic skills of ex-Soviets like Ilya Somin, Max Boot, Masha Gessen, and Julia Ioffe? They may not quite agree on what should replace the U.S., but they are united in being committed to propagandizing Americans into believing that America isn’t for “ourselves and our posterity,” no matter what it says in the Preamble to the Constitution.
After all, who would know more about how to organize a polity than somebody whose ancestors helped set up the Soviet Union? Who cares what Goodvernor Morris thought, when what matter these days is what the Somin family thinks?
And by ex-Soviets, Steve is being extraordinarily polite, because he’s actually referring to (((ex-Soviets))) who, by any other name, are still Trotskyite World Revolutionaries.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, these ex-Soviets have been trying to turn the USA into the new USSR for the last 50 years. And while they haven’t entirely succeeded, they’ve made a considerable amount of headway, thanks in no small part to libertarians and conservatives.
