Weekly Standard Editor, Bill Kristol, in an interview with Charles Murray, made anti-white comments about America’s “white working class”, while stating he hoped he “wasn’t being videotaped”.
“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?”
“Basically if you are in free society, a capitalist society, after two, three, four generations of hard work, everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled, whatever.”
“Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed, and really want their kids to live better lives than them, and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and, meanwhile, grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know why this moment is that different from the early 20th century.”
He apparently became aware that his comments might be disparaging: “I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere”.
It should be noted that Kristol comes from a very privileged home himself (source):
Kristol was born on December 23, 1952 in New York City, into a Jewish family. His father, Irving Kristol was an editor and publisher who served as the managing editor of Commentary magazine, founded the magazine The Public Interest and has been described as the “godfather of neoconservatism”. His mother, Gertrude Himmelfarb, is a scholar of Victorian era literature. He graduated in 1970 from Collegiate School, a preparatory school for boys in New York City.
In 1973, Kristol received an A.B. from Harvard College, graduating magna cum laude in three years. He was a student of Harvey Mansfield. Kristol received a Ph.D. in government from Harvard in 1979. During his first year of graduate school, Kristol shared a room with fellow government doctoral candidate Alan Keyes.
