American Spectator title vs. yours

Reader comment on item: How Ukrainian Refugees Could Inadvertently Erase the West

Submitted by Peter (United States), Jul 11, 2022 at 12:12

I liked the American Spectator title more, I think: it fits better with the main thrust and conclusion of your article.

While I agree with your statement in the article, "If a faster, more efficient way [than trying to cater to *everyone* in need] exists to collapse Europe and Western civilization, I cannot think of it", I chose to forward the link to the AS article rather than the version on your website to my sister, whom I've helped host Ukrainian refugees. My sister has previously wrung her hands over the "virtue signaling" in the supposed double standard, and I think your article will help her, but I thought the title of the article on your website might well put her off, calling to mind the discredited "Great Replacement Theory" the Buffalo shooter Payton Gendron subscribed to (https://www.npr.org/2022/06/16/1105776617/buffalo-shooting-suspect-says-his-motive-was-to-prevent-eliminating-the-white-ra).
