Still Beating the Drum

I apologize to my readers for another post, deriding the president for his position on illegal immigration. I must do it. I like president Bush, as a human being. I like president Bush, as the commander in chief, prosecuting the war on terror. On this issue however, his position is unconstitutional, liberally outrageous and frankly, un-American.

The conservatives, in our country are the only ones, vigorously calling for an end to this invasion of our soil.

Typically, we see liberal Democrats, like Ted Kennedy, championing the cause of criminals over victims.

  • Take guns and gun rights away from citizens, statistically raising the de-facto criminal ownership of guns.
  • Advocate the unbridled abortion of unborn children, while fighting tooth and nail to save the lives of convicted murderers.
  • Advocate for removing the names of sexual predators from national watch lists.
  • Advocate for giving prisoners the right to vote.
  • Insist that the treatment of prisoners and terrorists, in prison, is torture, while our soldiers, in the field, suffer worse hardship without complaint.
  • On and on and on ...
Then there is the liberal position on illegal immigration. What is the first thing they do? They follow the Lakoff linguistics theory of media spin. If you want to shape the public opinion of something, just change the harsh reality of the language to something soft and acceptable.
  • First and foremost, strip off the term illegal
  • When you cannot remove the term illegal, convert it to undocumented
  • Try to associate your cause with an unrelated historical coupling, such as the civil rights movement.
  • Filter the stream of information, so that it amplifies the positions you advocate, while suppressing the dissent.
This really works well, when your entire socio-economic analysis process is based on simple emotional gratification. It doesn't work so well, when your audience involves people who can think rationally.

Everyone should take a rubber thinking cap to college. The modern university is a dangerous brothel, full of intellectually transmitted diseases.

So, the president is out there, once again, trying to spin this issue on liberal emotion, instead of rational thought. (h.t. Jennifer Loven AP)

"Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic - it's just not going to work, Bush said. "You know, you can hear people out there hollering it's going to work. It's not going to work."

Mr. President, it will certainly not work with your attitude and the attitude of other politicians, who continue to violate their oaths of office. Your attempts to label the problem as futile, are falling on deaf ears.

How many employers have you put in jail for felony aide to illegal criminal invaders, Mr. President? None, I suspect, since you are still prattling on about jobs Americans will not do.

How many miles of border wall have you built, by immediate executive order, to enforce our immigration laws?

Neither of these are mass deportation. They are law enforcement, which would dry up those illegal jobs, and provide jobs for American citizens, at competitive wages.

"It's just an interesting concept that people need to think through," Bush said of the bill sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., which stalled before the congressional break.

We have thought your amnesty program through, Mr. President. It stinks. It is just more of the Washington lilac water and band aide approach to covering up the stench of a gangrenous, impotent, lobby hobbled immigration bureaucracy.

Bush is walking a fine line on the emotional immigration issue, between his party's conservative base which wants a clampdown on illegal immigration and business leaders who believe the economy needs immigrants to fill jobs.

The difference here, is not between conservatives and business leaders. The difference here, is between law abiding citizens and felonious criminal slave handlers. This is not an emotional issue. It is a legal issue. It is about the slave handlers, wanting to pawn off the medical, social and other human benefit costs of labor on law abiding citizens. Thanks to liberal government policy, that has become quite easy and profitable.

All sides are exerting pressure.

There is only on side that counts. The law! All other 'sides' are irrelevant.

"There needs to be a campaign to explain what's available for people so that they don't go to the emergency rooms," he said.

Mr. President, there are campaigns, right now, this very day, in Mexico, explaining to illegals, that the American emergency room is the place to go. Do you think we are all blind and stupid?

"One thing we cannot lose sight of is that we're talking about human beings, decent human beings that need to be treated with respect," the president said.

What about the decent human American citizens, who live on the Mexican border, Mr. president? The citizens who pay your salary and the salaries in congress? American citizens, who have their land invaded every night, by this wage slave exodus, Mr. President?

What about those decent human American citizens, who can't find one of those jobs you claim they won't take, because the wage structure pays slave wages?

Are those decent human beings, being treated with respect, by their own elected government, Mr. President?


They are being trampled, diminished, dismissed, marginalized and disrespected! They are being disrespected by you, the liberal Republicans and the liberal Democrats. The order of that indictment was appropriate, since, for now, Republicans run the show.

The House has passed a law-and-order immigration bill that would erect fences along the Mexican border and treat people who sneak across as felons to be deported. An alternative Senate measure would set up a temporary guest worker program, like the McCain bill, but require all illegal immigrants to leave the United States before they could apply for the visas.

The bill, also sponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., would boost border security but also create three-year visas for guest workers. Those who have been in the country longer than five years would not have to return home to apply for the visas. It would also allow for the workers to apply for legal permanent residency after paying a $2,000 fine, learning to speak English and working six years.

The house is very good at debating and passing abortive paper tripe. The federal government has become good at the application of cosmetics. It is all interesting, but useless theatrics. Some of us are sick of the talk. Some of us are sick of transient, superficially gratifying solutions. I will not believe a word of it, until I see direct action. By action, I mean completely verifyable prosecution of the law, from offense, to final justice.

Criminal invader amnesty is totally unacceptable, on its face, as unconstitutional lawbreaking. We all know what happened, in 1986, when we were told this problem would be taken care of.

Well, once again, the deodorant and band aides have fallen off the festering appendage of illegal wage slave importation.

  • Start building that wall today.
  • Start jailing those illegal employers.
  • Start deporting those criminals.
  • Fix the broken bureaucracy so that it processes people quickly and legally.
  • Fix the broken bureaucracy so that we can collect vital economic statistics, unshrouded by a vast illegal work force.

Do your job, or by God, the American people will fire all of you!

I just posted on the same topic. Slightly different take on it though.

Sorry I haven't dropped by more often recently Oh Great One. My blog reading has been seriously pared down as of late.

Insol, I wish I could trust that the american people would fire these people, but they'll just get used to it, and go c'est la vie. Just like with everything else. The majority of the American People, are sheep. People like you, and the rest of my blog roll are the minority. The majority of people in this country do not know what is going on, nor do they care. If they do get a clue, they won't do anything about it.

As the cong goes, "Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people..."

Another great post none the less, and don't apologize for posting on this topic. I hope people like you can make people like me wrong.

fmragtops said...

Sorry, cong=song

Ssssteve said...

Insol, again, awesome!!! And don't quit telling the story!! Fmragtops is soo right with the comment that most people here think that if it doesn't affect their daily lives "go to work at 8am and go home at 5pm drink beer all weekend then start all over again" They are Sheep!!!

SK said...

Very, very well said!

Damian G. said...


Sometimes you amaze me, Insol.

Difster - It seems we both share similar views on this topic. It is one of the only strongly non-libertarian views I hold.

fmragtops - We will see. I have confidence in the American people. They have a sense of fairness (not the type of fairness touted by the liberals ) about the rule of law. I re-iterate that the time and place to send the message to Washington, is during the primary phase of elections. Incumbent Democrat and Republican candidates need to be ousted by conservative Republicans, protecting our national pride. I will be pushing for it. Even if it fails, I will not be sitting back, declaring defeat.

ssssteve - I think events of the near future may wake people up.

Let historians not record that when America was the most powerful nation in the world we passed on the other side of the road and allowed the last hopes for peace and freedom of millions of people to be suffocated by the forces of totalitarianism.

And so tonight -- to you, the great silent majority of my fellow Americans -- I ask for your support.

- Richard Nixon on Vietnam

I hope the silent majority doesn't allow America to fall to Mexican socialism.

SK - Thanks for the support.

Damian - I appreciate your remarks.

We may have lost hope of change through the current administration (conservatives being labeled racist instead of attempting intellectual debate does that to a body) but let's not lose hope that the American people will see that the right thing's done.

This isn't an issue they can ignore or one that can be hidden from them because it's something they see around them every day. For many, it is quite literally happening in their own back yards.

I really think Americans are really paying attention to this issue so it's important to keep it up.

Great post, email worthy even. :)

fmragtops said...

Well, we'll definitely need a Teddy Roosevelt/Winston Churchill type to take over the reigns of the republican party if we are to take this country back. I just don't see anybody waiting in the wings to take the lead.

Magic said...

Let's not forget the Cuban invasion in South Florida. I've watch my home town degrade from a clean, wholesome American city to become a crime ridden, American hating haven of every coward and traitor that ever ran out on their own country. The vast majority gives the vast minority a bad name. I no longer live in Florida and would never go back their. I understand that the Mexican problem is a real threat but it is not the only one. We are a nation of immigrants. True! But we, the American People had better wake up before it's too late or we will be the minority in our own country.

fm - Where will we find such an icon, these days? The only hope I see, bears a large price tag. I fear that only a crisis that shakes the Republic to its core, will motivate us to elevate our leadership.

Magic - This brings up another good point. Even our 'legal' process is broken in many areas. The refugee and sanctuary mechanisms are also grossly abused.

If I was rich I'd bankroll your run for the presidency.

If I was rich, I might consider running!
