In my article about Dual Loyalty? The case for dual loyalty of the Jewish Diaspora, I have explained (or tried to explain) the truth, the common sense conclusion that:
Now, lets cut the bullshit.
America is a woderful country, and it attracts hordes of immigrants, of all skin colors, races, religious beliefs, economic status...
Christians, moslems, jews, buddhists, atheists.
Mexicans, Irish, Poles, Brasilians, Tibetans.
A rich university student comes here to study advanced mathematics in a top US university and decides to settle here.
A poor Mexican comes here to get a job in a restaurant and to send some money back home to his family.
There is one thing that unites them - they are either first generation immigrants, or first generation Americans.
Which means that they (of course, it is a given) have patriotic feelings toward their country of origin, not their adopted country - the USA.
What I tried to do is to state that most, if not all ethnic and national groups have dual loyalty to their home countries. Especially if they are a relatively recent immigrants, or if the ethnic group refuses to assimilate into the "new" country and tries very hard to remain aloof, different and separate from its other citizens.
But dual loyalty is true of almost all national and ethnic groups.
Whether Mexicans, Poles, Russians, Irish, Jews, Chinese - whatever.
It is normal.
Nothing proves this case as another example, this time from Australia.
So... case in point:
Source: Reuters article:
CANBERRA (Reuters) - In the biggest pro-Beijing rally of the protest-marred Olympic torch relay, more than 10,000 Chinese Australians rallied in Canberra on Thursday, bringing a sea of red Chinese flags and drowning out Tibetan demonstrators.
10,000 Chinese-Australians have rallied not to promote Australia, of which they are citizens, but to help their REAL country, the country to which they are loyal and feel patriotic feelings to, regardless of small things like being now citizens of another country.
And they were not waving Australian flags - in fact, not a single Australian flag was present during this "Australian" rally in Canberra.
On Thursday thousands of Chinese chanting "One China" packed the start and finish of the torch relay in the Australian capital.
Gosh, all those Australian citizens screaming for "One China"!
And waving those red Australian flags! Oh wait...
So lets not act that surprised when we discover that Mexicans stage patriotic rallies for Mexico and cheer on the Mexican soccer team (while booing Team USA), or Chinese-American engineers spy in America, or Jewish-Americans spy on behalf of Israel.
Lets cut the politically correct bullshit, ok?
