Senate Bill Dies, But Not the Lies

It’s now obvious that the majority of American people, when asked directly and reported honestly, do not favor any form of amnesty for illegal aliens and in fact favor rounding them up and sending them home.

The problem has always been that we are not asked directly and the subject is not reported honestly. If for example our media reported on immigration the way it reports on Iraq – constantly questioning the premises and goals, always downplaying the positive news and emphasizing the negative – we would be much more aware just how disastrous the last four decades of immigration have been for the United States. The disaster would in fact never have been permitted to unfold.

Instead we have Big Liars like Ted Kennedy (“First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset”) and John McCain (“I think the fence is least effective. But I’ll build the goddamned fence if they want it.”) crafting our immigration policy, and a president responsible for enforcing our nation’s borders and defending its citizens who thinks of himself as El Presidente and openly sides with the invaders instead. For this the big media lionize them. They are our great statesmen. Brave heroes.

The trouble for our treasonous and aloof elites is that despite their non-stop propaganda, constantly instructing us yokels how wonderful and enriching immigration is, the yokels are now very quickly waking up to reality. The reality that immigration has been a disaster.

All you have to do is look around. There are foreigners everywhere. Far too many who do not share our customs, traditions, values, or language and show no interest in starting. They’ve come here only to grab for themselves whatever they can get. The media has browbeaten Americans for decades to convince them not to reproduce, to ignore superficial differences like race, forget their families, abandon their silly religions, and shed their belligerent national loyalties – and no surprise, it has mostly worked.

Now here come the immigrants. With their giant broods and a shameless loyalty to their kin, their ethnicity, their faith (and ummah), and the nation they left behind. They care not one wit for America or the fat lazy stupid gringo-infidels who only by dumb luck and the sins of their fathers happen to inhabit it. They ignore our laws, evade our taxes, and demand rights exceeding our own. They claim they do all the work and constantly decry their supposed victimization and exploitation.

The reality of course is precisely the opposite. With regard to either work, money, or violence it’s the native Americans being victimized and exploited.

“You stole this land, we’re stealing it back, and there’s nothing you can do about it Pilgrim.”

Ladeeenyo mobs take over our city streets several times a year now, barely suppressing their primal urge to riot and loot. When legal Americans demonstrate in support of the law, within the law, they are harassed and threatened by those same unruly Ladeeenyos. El Presidente tells us they share our family values. Crime and education statistics tell a different story.

Any guero who’s rubbed elbows with Ladeeenyos since the Senate bill died can sense the tension, see their glowering eyes, feel their smoldering resentment. My city’s streets are full of “undocumented workers” pushing baby carriages with two or three “undocumented workers” toddling along behind. Aren’t they concerned about their carbon footprint? Shouldn’t these “workers” be, you know, working?

Likewise too many Muslims come here and then complain incessantly. Foot washing basins. Pork products. Hallucinations of discrimination. Let’s be honest. All of them, the so-called moderates included, won’t be happy until everyone is in pajamas on their knees praying toward Mecca five times a day. They differ only in the means and schedule for achieving that goal. Ask them. You’ll find them either so confident they freely admit it, or trying to evade your questions with transparent lies (eg. “Sharia? What’s that?” or “The roots of Islamist grievances are economic, starting with the injustices of colonialism” or “There shall be no compulsion in religion”).

The most impatient Muslims hatch attacks even more frequently than the Ladeeenyos march. After 9/11, Fort Dix, and JFK who can believe that our immigration problems are all about the Ladeeenyos or cheap labor? After the jihadi doctor attacks in Britain what infidel can now help but wonder about the more insidious damage Muslim infiltrators might wreak?

These aliens aren’t hiding in the shadows. They walk freely among us celebrating their rise, scheming our fall. They know they have friends in high places seeing to their rights, pursuing their interests. They’re disappointed amnesty has failed for now, but they know time is on their side. Soon enough the fat lazy stupid Americans will get their comeuppance.

“Gimme gimme gimme, and don’t get any ideas about defending yourself gringo-infidel racist fascist!”

It’s a testimony to the mind-numbing power of modern propaganda that things have had to go this far before enough people stopped believing the happy talk and started believing what they could see and hear for themselves. The Senate’s move was so brazen and so dishonest it boggles the mind to think that it only barely failed. They’ll regroup, and they’ll be back to try again.

And still many remain asleep. Busy busy busy with noses to the grindstone, they trust their government is working hard to protect them. To keep them that way our elites, previously much more subtle, have become desperate. Their stupifying message is now spelled out directly: If you oppose immigration or Islam you are a filthy racist. A criminal. The real threat, we are told, is white supremacist-driven nationalism. If we don’t ban their radio shows and silence their hate blogs they’ll form a Gestapo, load all the brown people and Muslims into railcars, and ship them off to concentration camps.

Riiiiiiight. Nobody I know has any such fantasies. But the nightmare that our homes and families will be trapped in a violent, intolerant Aztlan is slowly, surely becoming a reality. And if that doesn’t come to pass being trapped in an even more violent, less tolerant Caliphate is not that much farther off.

This is the great gift of immigration, multi-culturalism, and diversity? No thanks. Take it back. Now. We don’t want it.

Timely Reminders of Z-ality

In the middle of our nation’s “great debate” over its immigration policies Venezuela reminds us of two recurring themes in Latin politics: dictators and marching mobs.

Not that we should need reminders. Surly mobs march in our streets several times a year now. One of the many joys of multiculturalism. We’ll find out if we have a dictator in about 18 months.

Speaking of reminders, Lawrence Auster put his finger right on the problem:

We know the pattern. London, Fort Dix, JFK, and each subsequent event will be treated as though it were something “shocking,” new, and unique, because our liberal belief system refuses to recognize the transcendent reality that we have an enemy, that the enemy is among us, and that he is among us due to one cause and one cause only: immigration. There is therefore only one way to end Muslim terrorist attacks in the West, and that is to keep Muslims from entering the West and to initiate a steady out-migration of the Muslims who are here back to their native countries. Sixty-five percent of the Muslim population in the U.S. are immigrants.

Once everybody’s a zitizen the media will have a much easier time selling their “home-grown terrorist” whitewash. Just some “random” Americans planning “random” attacks. You have to be a racist who doesn’t want what’s right for the country to think our double plus wonderful open border policies are in any way to blame.
