Racism and Christianity: Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen, who has previously advocated for mandatory church attendance, warns GOP colleagues about the “browning of America.”
Allen, a Republican lawmaker from Snowflake, Arizona, recently warned her Republican colleagues that the United States is “going to look like South American countries very quickly,” claiming that new immigrants will not be able to “assimilate.”
The GOP lawmaker made her remarks during a July 15 event commemorating “Mormon Political Pioneers” at the Arizona Republican Party headquarters in Phoenix.
State Sen. Sylvia Allen (R), speaking at AZ’s GOP HQ, warns of the ‘browning of America.’

Phoenix New Times obtained audio of Allen’s comments late last week, noting:
During a rambling, 25-minute speech peppered with religious and autobiographical references, Allen expressed a worldview that the founding principles of the United States are under attack by feminists, secularists, and immigrants.
Allen’s discussion of assimilation occurred near the end of her speech, following a reference to Dr. James Johnson, a business professor at the University of North Carolina who studies demographics.
Reporting on Allen’s speech, Newsweek notes:
During her speech Allen said:
Throughout the speech, Allen expressed her opinion that the founding principles of the United States were under attack by immigrants, feminists, secularists.
Another thing that Dr. Johnson talked about is the ‘Browning of America.That America is fast becoming … we’re going to look like South American countries very quickly.
The median age of a white woman is 43. The median age of a Hispanic woman is 27. We are not reproducing ourselves, the birthrates. But here’s what I see is the issue. It’s because of immigration.
Allen is a controversial figure: a radical Christian extremist who believes the earth is only 6,000 years old, she previously suggested legislation that would mandate that every citizen be compelled “to attend a church of their choice” every Sunday.
In addition to her religious extremism, she is also a conspiracy theorist who believes the U.S. government regularly sprays its citizens with mind-controlling chem-trails.
Bottom line: Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen, who has previously advocated for mandatory church attendance, warns GOP colleagues about the “browning of America.” Because nothing says “white conservative Christian” like open racism.
