Yes, Exactly

NY Mag discovers what many long knew:

“To Anton, the rising share of the nonwhite population is a foreign invasion: ‘The ceaseless importation of Third World foreigners with no tradition of, taste for, or experience in liberty means that the electorate grows more left, more Democratic, less Republican, less republican, and less traditionally American with every cycle,’ he writes. He describes the children of immigrants as ‘ringers to form a permanent electoral majority.’ The racial and political implications of this argument are both clear and extreme: Anton believes the white Republican base is the only legitimate governing coalition. Democratic governments are inherently illegitimate by dint of their racial cast.”

By definition,¬†demos means the people. If “the people” do not represent “the people”, then democracy is illegitimate. In a multicultural society, there will only be increasing atomization of groups, each bent on its own identity representation. Anton is not the first to discover or argue for this, nor is this view particular to him today.
