I open the Denver comPost’s web page and here we go again, and it’s just one of many nationwide examples of this type of behavior from liberal media trying to pressure the GOP into going along with the Democrats’ amnesty plan.
One glance at this Denver comPost editardial on the front page of the paper’s website, and I already knew what the article was about. ‘The GOP’s Best Move on Immigration’ immediately made me think, “Go along with Democrats and pass amnesty.”
And what was it about? In sum, go along with the Democrats and pass amnesty. This is the way we have to “resolve” the issue with Obama threatening (another) amnesty with executive order.
Give the Democrats what they want or like, you’ll be unpopular and stuff. Trust us.
Why is this crap so predictable?
At the minimum, the trash produced by the editardial board at the Denver comPost reads like it was authored by someone who has been coached in Democratic Party talking points. This stuff reads as if it was written by someone inside the DNC itself and had the editardial board’s name added to it. Shilling for a political party by media can’t get much worse than this:
The best option, however, is really the most simple. The new GOP majority that will control both chambers should pass an immigration bill when they take power in January — one that addresses all the things the president cannot do on his own.
The immigration bill which is the pet legislation of Democrats and one that Democrats didn’t have the testicles to pass on their own during the months in 2009 when they had control of both houses of Congress and are now accusing Republicans of “obstructing.” They want amnesty but they’re scared to death to pass it unilaterally fearing a massive social backlash, so they want to sucker the GOP into going along in signing America’s death warrant. And if they can’t have it now, they’ll at least put on a loud display of pro-Latino militancy to keep the votes in the bank for the future, wink wink.
The Denver comPost continues,
It’s time to make government work. The last thing Americans want to see is more fighting.
“Government work” is code for “go along with Democrats.” Why do we keep seeing this kind of policy shilling from liberal media?
One thing very common in DNC rhetoric is the lack of mention that this kind of language means that the Democratic Party is completely dismissing the idea of enforcing current immigration law including but not limited to border control. It is also dismissing off-hand the idea of applying eVerify as law not only on new hires, but having businesses run it for all existing ones which is what should be going on, not counting other reasonable means of immigration enforcement. We should also be repealing the application of Birthright Citizenship to illegal aliens, but that’s totally off the table.
Reasonable measures to handle illegal immigration are being obstructed (mostly) by the Democrats.
Amnesty isn’t about what the Democratic Party says is the reason they’re pushing it; it’s about the unspoken motives they aren’t telling you about, nor will they. You are being fed rosy talking points, not actual reasons.
This is how the Left works; never take them on face value. They will only give you a selling point they think will manipulate you into going along with them. With the immigration issue, we hear everything but rational justification: We hear appeals to greed and appeals to pity and when those fail, cries of nativism/xenophobia/racism. Emotional manipulation followed by attempts at shaming and race baiting. No real reasons.
Logical fallacies should always raise a huge red flag: Con artistry present.
We’ve been through this before; we were told specifically when the 1986 amnesty was passed that 1) there would be no more amnesties and 2) the border was going to be taken care of.
And we’re being told yet again that if we go along with the Democrats’ plan, they’ll take care of the border this time! They swear it and everything!
Yet they haven’t done it and demand amnesty first.
Who do they think they’re kidding? The last amnesty of 3 million (of which had a massive amount of document fraud to the tune of nearly one third) brought us a human tidal wave of 12 million-plus more over the following decade. Why? Because granting amnesty encourages people to come and feed at the trough. Any time you give these people an inch, they’re going to take a mile. Give them a piece of the cake and they’ll begin to wonder why they only get one piece and can’t hand more out to their friends.
And we see this being set up here again,
Those eligible in this new group would have to be law-abiding individuals who are closely related to U.S. citizens or have lived here for a number of years.
And how do you prove this? Papers – which can be easily forged, just like last time. And they will be and Democrats know it.
We aren’t left with amnesty because we “can’t” make the illegal aliens leave or we “can’t” do something about the border – it’s because Democrats (mostly) don’t want to.
But why would they do that?
If internal Democratic Party documents do not anticipate that an amnesty of 12 million without a sealed border is going to produce an even bigger tidal wave of even more illegal aliens, then they’re then the dumbest people in the world and have no concept of history. But I think it’s all to clear that they know exactly what they’re doing and anticipate it – and want it.
This is all by design.
But why would they do this? Electoral popularity speaks volumes. Thomas B. Edsall wrote The Future of the Obama Coalition in the New York Times that,
For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.
All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic…
There are plenty of critics of the tactical idea of dispensing with low-income whites, both among elected officials and party strategists. But Cliff Zukin, a professor of political science at Rutgers, puts the situation plainly. “My sense is that if the Democrats stopped fishing there, it is because there are no fish.”
You see, it’s not about “fixing” a “broken” immigration policy. It’s about fixing a broken Democratic Party that lost its former base to the Republicans in the 1980s.
The new base of the DNC are mostly blacks and Latinos, and it’s too small – especially with the Party continuing to bleed the white vote and instead of addressing why they’re so unpopular with America’s majority demographic, we see the Democrats abandon them and try to save political face by race baiting white Republicans to no end about the GOP’s demographics. I think it’s also to be expected when one’s political party is expected to cater to the prejudices of it’s members — specifically anti-white prejudices among black and Latino voters.
It kind of explains all the political racial tension we see now, doesn’t it? Lots of racial rage coming from the new base of the Democratic Party. It also explains why the Democrats would try to racially inflame blacks to vote by invoking Ferguson in its leaflets.
In plain language, without importing non-white voters in large numbers such as Latinos and blacks, the Democrats are screwed.
And now we know why the Democrats are selling the “benefits” of illegal aliens by appealing to greed and pity rather than addressing giving those jobs to poor working class Americans instead.
The Democratic Party is pandering to its new base, and a growing chunk of it isn’t American. It is largely poor, foreign… And illegal.
What do you think such a large demographic shift in the US would lead to were illegal aliens given amnesty and between it and continuing large numbers of third world immigration, minority status for whites?
A one party state?
I think that’s exactly what the Democrats are shooting for.
