In another interview, he also attacked women serving in the military in combat roles.
“The idea is that they have to bring in as many non-Europeans as possible in order to outnumber the numbers of Americans of European ancestry who live in the United States. That’s what it’s all about. And I don’t think there’s any point in questioning it. That is the policy. … It is a deliberate policy to enact demographic change.”
Susan Gough, a Pentagon spokesperson, told CNN that West Point had no say who serves on the board: “The Army has no input as to who is appointed to the USMA Board of Visitors. West Point’s responsibility is to update the Board of Visitors, not administer or appoint it.”
Macgregor did not respond to requests for comment.
White House spokesperson Andrew Bates condemned Macgregor’s recent remarks, telling CNN, “These hateful and grotesque sentiments are antithetical to the values and character of our nation and armed forces–whose standards, excellence, and professionalism are without comparison.”
“There is absolutely no place in public service for racism, for denigrating the contributions of women in the military, or for religious bigotry,” said Bates.
A White House official told CNN that Macgregor’s standing on West Point’s Board of Visitors is currently being reviewed.
Macgregor also said “a lot of criminals” were among migrants and undocumented immigrants coming into the United States, adding they would be a “burden on our economy,” who carried since eradicated diseases.
“We’re also encouraging all these worst elements to come in and camp and effectively enjoy the fruits of citizenship without earning them and without ever having qualified for them,” he said, “And I think some of you must have seen the thousands of pregnant women coming up from Latin America, so they can have their children here. And then the child immediately is declared an American citizen. And again, all of this is part of the grand plan. This is what Mr. Biden and his supporters want. They want another country. They don’t want the United States.”
“What we call diversity — in the extreme. In other words, affirmative action programs for every conceivable category of humanity that the left wants to come up with, ” said Macgregor. “Whether it’s someone who is a gender neutral or homosexual or whatever else, the left loves to put us into categories and push this. And the people that went along with it and said, ‘sure, let’s put women into the combat forces. Let’s have women everywhere.’ Let’s do whatever we want to do. We’re going to create this brave new world where everyone is the same. There are no differences, nothing matters. So I think that’s where we are.”
