We are all Miamians now

I looked back and saw that Peak Stupidity has never had a post specifically about the Mariel Boatlift of 44 years ago this Spring/Summer/Fall. We did mention this important early battle of the immigration invasion in the following posts: Said in Spanish - Allan Wall with some encouragement (Sept. of '19 with Trump in office), Governor DeSantis fights the Bai Dien/Mayorkas-run Invasion (May of '23), and Spies Like Us, starring Manuel Rocha.

The reader with no knowledge of this even may want to read a very short summary on this Britannica page, a slightly longer summary on History.com, or the much longer wiki page.

There's some background I won't get into (see the links) behind the reason this mass exodus of 125,000 Cubans* happened at that particular time. Instead of preventing Cubans from sailing to freedom, for those months Communist Fidel Castro decided to cast out political prisoners and ALL kinds of prisoners. Nobody will ever know how many of each type came. Americans had respected those who extricated themselves from the evils of Communism, but then the numbers from anywhere (even Vietnam, I would say) hadn't been high enough to be considered a serious immigration invasion yet. This Mariel Boatlift, enabled by President Jimmy Carter, was different, and it had a lasting effect. Oh, and, some of those "Mareilitos" were mental patients - "Why not?" would be a good point made by Castro. "They weren't sending their best", that's for sure.

Because south Florida is the nearest part of the US, as some had been doing for years, since the Commies took over Cuba in 1959, this mass of humanity consolidated in the big city of Miami. It changed the city greatly. As an slight aside, Steve Sailer did some great noticing about this. He rebutted those economists who claimed Miami had such an amazing boost to its economy due to IMMIGRATION! with the point that it was the whole drug war run by these criminal "newcomers", with the cocaine and later crack, that was the big "amazing" economic boost. (Americans before didn't do this sort of work so much. Colombians did too, though.) However, all the big money and violence was not a good thing for your average old-time Miaimian.

I find this period pretty interesting, especially the "transportation" aspects of drug importation, and a friend has urged me to watch Cocaine Cowboys, a documentary of the period.** The excesses were amazing, what with guys buying 10 Italian sports cars for their friends on a whim and, per my friend's viewing, the amount of cash money in Miami was greater than all that floating around the rest of the country!

Well, fine, but when we used to drive down to The Keys, we'd gas up in Ft. Pierce, Sebring, wherever, depending on the route, and avoid the whole Miami area like the plague. Avoiding the areas of the few lost battles of the invasion was doable 30-odd years back. One didn't have to live there, so, OK, you had south Florida and southern California, and maybe a few other places that were not-exactly-American within America.

Over the ensuing 3 decades, the high level and steady flow of illegal and legal immigrants, at 1 to 2 million yearly slowly created not-exactly-American zones all around the country. Even with the social and cultural destruction we could deal, I suppose, as it's gotten slowly worse. Dark Brandon and his handlers and minions, however, have been running a Mariel Boatlift on steroids for the last 3 years though. We're talking a factor of 100. They are not all just one nationality, but the 12 million (that'd be 100x) contain a sampling of criminality from all over the world!

With all those nationalities, I noticed something during this Bai Dien invasion surges. I'll see some story about a horrific murder by an illegal alien, one of the "newcomers", or a rape of a 7-year old girl by one of the same, etc. I'll just guess the nationality as Venezuelan, and, whaddya' know, YEP, that's what the article will say. EVERY! SINGLE! TIME! Of course, other nationalities, such as the Salvadorans with the hyper-violent MS-13 gang, get in their share too. In the long run, the current mass importation of Africans, legally*** and illegally, will result in more violence here. However, the Venezuelans seem to have taken first prize as of late.

There's a similarity with that particular contingent and the contingent of Cubans that came 44 years ago. These people have left countries that have long been Communist. In the case of the Mariel Boatlift, it was only one generation by that time. In the case of Venezuela, the former crown jewel of South America, it's been a generation and a half now.

Communism leaves a long, lasting mark. Ask me about the long-term effects on the Chinese people sometime. The countries have not been the kind of places where a straight-arrow Jose Blose can get ahead in life. Violence pays in places like this. These are the people turning America into one big Miami. We're all Miamians now. Thing is, if we don't like it, we can't just all move up north to Ocala anymore.

* Something I hadn't known till now is that some of those coming during that period were Haitians, 25,000 of them. Also from the wiki page on the boatlife, one can read that America, and the Presidents of the era, were still serious people regarding this issue. Of course, the Black! politicians were up to their usual tribal stupidity:
Before 1980, many Haitian immigrants arrived on American shores by boat. They were not granted legal protection because they were considered economic migrants, rather than political refugees, despite claims made by many Haitians that they were being persecuted by the Duvalier regime. U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford denied claims of asylum in the United States for Haitian migrants by boat. A backlash by the Congressional Black Caucus ensued, which claimed that the U.S. government was discriminating against Haitian immigrants.
Yes, it sure was. So, what's your point?

*** Post to come. I'm getting so behind.

PS The bad guys have destroyed America. It’s over. Our task is to determine which parts, if any, are salvageable.

PS: I think you made the right decision, Alarmist, to not give the RNLI ONE PENNY. They are helping to destroy Europe. Thanks for that anecdote from that CCTMNBN, haha. It's getting Orwellian quickly.

Back to your comment on the "toe in the water", I was reading of the US's "wet foot, dry foot" policy. That law was only made for Cubans. I was about to comment more on what wiki said about it, but this post was already too long.

Australia is one country that has been very solid on turning around all who sail there, landing illegally. OTOH, they let millions of Chinese and whomever else in, legally, so what's the real diff?

PS: Thank you so much, Adam. Since I'm not on Windows right now, but I can be later, I'll wait until you've got it downloaded on mega.nz. This tablet with 200 tabs open may not enjoy the big file.

I'm really looking forward to this one.

Funny, but I just saw an ad on telly for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, asking people to leave donations in their wills to supoort this “worthy cause.”

In years passed, I might have entertained that request. They have over the years rescued boaters, swimmers, surfers and even people who had been walking on the beach but swept to sea, which is indeed a worthy cause; but in recent years they have become a water taxi for migrants coming from France to the UK. They now import hundreds of migrants for every legitimate rescue the still perform; if a migrant can get a toe in the water in France, they get a free ride to Britain, even though nearly every one of them should legally and rightfully be returned to France, for the French to decide what to do with the humans who have been trafficked to their shores; instead the French, Rishi Sunak’s government, and the RNLI (among more than a few NGOs) have themselves become human traffickers, much like the Bai Den regime.

I had to tank my car in a certain Continental country the other day, and at least one out of every ten customers was an African driving a car deceptively nice for someone who might be a migrant. Now it could be that these Africans might be engineers and technicians working at the European Space Agency just around the corner, but they could also be migrants from the recently built container settlement around the other corner spending some of that good European benefit cash that is not being spent on housing themselves. It’s a hard life to be a migrant in the EU. No, seriously.

It seems the leaders of the Western World are more beholden to foreigners’ interests than those of their own citizens. In classical Poli Sci speak, that would reasonably lead one to conclude those governments had lost their legitimacy, but I won’t go so far as to say that, because in several places where I roam, to utter that expression would be a crime subject to more jail time than for a “recent arrival” who rapes and kills a 15 y.o. girl.

In the 1980s, ruthless Colombian cocaine barons invaded Miami with a brand of violence unseen in this country since Prohibition-era Chicago - and it put the city on the map. "Cocaine Cowboys" is the true story of how Miami became the drug, murder and cash capital of the United States, told by the people who made it all happen.
