We were warned by Barack Obama himself back in 2008 when he told a San Francisco fundraising crowd this about Pennsylvania voters:
“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
This quote is exactly how those on the left view those who stand in the way of their “progressive” plans from America, quickly utilizing the, “it’s 2014, how can anyone still think that way?” quip when encountering anyone who doesn’t conform to their mindset.
I was thinking about Obama’s quote – doesn’t it just illustrate the truly intolerant among us? – when considering what’s happening in the current invasion of our country’s southern border with Mexico, seemingly aided and abetted by his administration.
The stories seem so shocking coming from what’s left of the U.S/Mexican border that you have to wonder if this isn’t some Rod Serling influenced reboot of “The Twilight Zone”:
- new diseases, long ago eradicated in America by advances in medical care, being brought across our borders and into our communities;
- the Obama administration working with various federal departments to secretly airlift illegal alien “children” into states without telling those states governments where they are being placed;
- Border Patrol agents basically told to stand down and, instead of enforcing our national sovereignty, play highly paid babysitter;
- Republicans seemingly incapable of understanding that a new generation of Democratic voters are being imported to America, who will eventually work to even turn Texas “blue” forever;
- violent gangs being able to recruit new members at facilities paid for by the U.S taxpayer (that’s you and me);
- A sitting U.S. representative telling a pro-amnesty Hispanic identity group (La Raza does translate into “The Race”) that Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to “punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border.” Rep. Luis Gutierrez even congratulated President Obama for halting the deportations “of our people.”
You know, I could go on and on and on with stories of such gross negligence by this administration, giving the Energizer Bunny a run for his money, but I’ll stop and just congratulate the conservative media and people like Matt Drudge for keeping the story of the complete breakdown of border enforcement front and center daily.
Let’s be honest: It’s the only issue that matters right now.
As I wrote in an earlier column, “either you have a border or you don’t,” and the Obama administration is making it quite clear where he stands policy-wise on this simple concept.
The Obama administration believes we don’t have a border and that more people entering our country only speeds up the day when those “bitter clingers” are thankfully reduced to such a pitiful number of the electorate that the entire country looks like macro version of the one-party state you have in Chicago.
A one-party state where Republicans and conservatives aren’t allowed a seat at the table of power and are instead expected to be grateful for the enlightened leadership provided by the anointed “progressives” in charge.
No, thank you.
It was once a time where conservatives living in a city that was beginning to tip to the Democratic side (think Detroit or my adopted hometown of Atlanta) could simply move a few cities away and enjoy the fruits of their labor via a suburban address.
Not exactly a winning strategy, but it allowed for conservative enclaves (an oasis of normalcy) to form and leaders such as Newt Gingrich to get elected to office and become national leaders.
With the mass invasion of our country now by “children,” (seemingly encouraged by Obama’s policies) who are being relocated all across the country, this is no longer a plausible strategy.
So here’s my challenge to any young conservative leader currently seeking either state or local office, or fighting for re-election: Come out swinging for the fences on one issue and only one issue, standing on the side of America instead of La Raza on immigration.
Be 100 percent against illegal immigration and amnesty, for this is a tool of the Democrats to ensure they control the White House and eventually turn states like Texas, Arizona, and Georgia permanently blue, and turn states like North Dakota and Montana into “border states.”
There’s so much going on right now with Israel, Benghazi, the IRS, eco-tyrannical policies enacted by an overzealous EPA – but the immigration issue is without a doubt the most important one: If we can’t control our borders, then we don’t have a country.
It’s no great secret that I’m passionate about this issue: Go back and read the December 27, 1999, issue of Sports Illustrated that to this day is still brought up whenever I’m interviewed in the media to see how I was thinking about the problem of illegal immigration well before the curve.
We are now at a point where the United States of America will strike out as a country if we can’t control our borders, and we have a president who hopes (paraphrasing here) “those bitter, clinging to guns and religion and antipathy to people who aren’t like them” are for once and all silenced and left without a voice in politics.
This will happen if amnesty passes.
This will happen if conservatives don’t overwhelm their elected officials with calls and emails demanding something be done to stop the invasion of America.
And, worse, this will happen if fresh voices don’t start to get loud in defending the right of America to exist as a sovereign nation, whose people won’t be punished (as Rep. Luis “Our People” Gutierrez hopes to see happen) into accepting progressivism because they want to ensure their grandchildren live in a nation they’d recognize.
