OpenDemocracy, a left-wing magazine funded by organizations linked to George Soros, called for granting statehood to five U.S. territories in order to “end the whiteness of Congress.”
One of the most transformative things Democrats could do with their narrow majority in Congress would be to grant statehood to all the remaining inhabited US territories. That would make five new states: Washington DC, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Mariana Islands (a reunion of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam, which is the southern Mariana Island).
These territories have so far been prevented from becoming states as part of a larger, long-standing project to keep the Senate and Electoral College White. A long history of White identity politics, underhanded political maneuvers, and outright violence intentionally created the situation in which non-Hispanic, White Americans – who make up 61.5% of the US population – are the majority in every state but Hawaii (which has an Asian American plurality of 37.3%). Americans of Native, Black, or Latin heritage together make up 31.1% of the US population, but they do not make up a majority in any state – neither alone nor in combination.
By refusing to grant the territories statehood, the White majority is effectively choosing to maintain its outsized influence in the federal government.
Their real goal is to divide the country along any and all possible lines in order to destroy our once greatest strength: unity. The United States of America made us great because of our unity. Donald Trump was vilified for Making America Great Again regardless of race. But the elite promoting one world order through their great reset need to destroy our melting pot culture in order to take control.
