I reject the idea that Hispanics lack the intellect and/or integrity to obey US immigration law, and therefore need a pass. But I also understand that people who unwittingly make that bigoted implication truly do believe they’re helping.
Let’s start with a question that far too few are asking: If so-called Dreamers stay, then what happens to their families? Are we to believe that after 1.7 million “kids” get legal status, you won’t be demanding the same for their families? Are we to believe it’s even feasible not to?
How long before the story of young Guadalupe starts getting wall-to-wall coverage? Oh, you haven’t heard that story yet? Here I’ll get you caught up…
Young Guadalupe is a young single mother whose young child decided to stay in the United States under DACA. But because her young child doesn’t have anyone to look after him, he’s planning to live alone on the street. Why does Donald Trump hate young Guadalupe and her young child? Don’t Trump supporters care that Mark Zuckerberg has two Senior Programmer jobs waiting for young Guadalupe and her young child, even though they speak neither English nor Java? Don’t Republicans care that if young Guadalupe and her young child aren’t both allowed to stay, that a minimum of 11 states will literally spontaneously combust? That those 23 states will just be gone? Those 37 states will just disappear in to thin air? That practically all 50 states will just cease to exist? Don’t they care about America!?
Why does Donald Trump hate young Guadalupe’s young son’s father, who young Guadalupe has now reconciled with? Doesn’t the so-called party of family values care about young Guadalupe’s young son’s grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins? Don’t Trump supporters know that illegal immigrants are all that’s keeping our helpless and failing nation afloat?
Why do Donald Trump and his supporters want young Guadalupe’s young son’s family to starve? And live on the street? Without cell phones? Or walkin’ around money?
I don’t care if they already get free healthcare. They need free health insurance, you racist.
One of the left’s many problems is that they’re not fooling anyone. We all know that’s exactly how this story goes. And we know that every step of the way Hollywood will be celebrating them and academia will be bastardizing its scientific integrity to support them. It’s all practically scripted at this point.
The coordinated promotion of endless deceit creates a convergence of intellectual dishonesty that confirms three long-held beliefs about you on the left: You believe the ends justify the means, you see crises as assets that help advance your cause(s), and you create exponentially more destruction than you mitigate.
That’s just real talk. And if you’re honest with yourselves, you’d admit it.
But I also know that virtually all of you liberals in the grassroots are well-intended. Even those of you who think we have to destroy the USA and rebuild it in to some socialist utopia, you truly believe you’re doing a good thing. Your entire existence is predicated on the idea that “Giving is good.” And that’s wonderful. It really is. Giving truly is good. But I implore you to “give” more than just your enthusiasm for a government that will do it for you.
The unintended consequences of your bigoted sympathy are wide-ranging.
Here are a few that merit sunlight…
You’re actually creating division. You’re telling Hispanics that their ethnicity should preclude everything else. You’re implying that anyone of Hispanic descent merits some kind of special treatment. You’re pushing them into a segregated camp where they’re told to wallow in shared grievance that didn’t even exist until they met you. You’re crippling them with entitlement, and endangering them with permission for lawlessness. You’re crushing their liberty. You’re not only mitigating the extraordinary value of inalienable rights, but you’re creating addiction to synthetic rights that make hostages out of free individuals. You’re shouting “Racist!” at everyone who disagrees with you, while lamenting “whiteness” and using “white” as a pejorative. You’re not only segregating Hispanics and crippling them with a false sense of entitlement, but you’re segregating any who disagree with you as racists and hate mongers. You’re creating brand new hatred. You’re creating brand new division. And you’re doing it all because you think you’re helping. But I assure you, you’re not. From illegal immigrants to our nation in general and everything in between, you depress or destroy virtually everything you aspire to ‘help.’
Kids and families are displaced or broken up every day in America. And it’s tragic. Why you on the left seem to be okay with that — as long as it doesn’t happen to people who are here illegally — is frankly just more evidence of how short-sighted your thinking is. Yes your dedication to poor, usually brown people is very admirable. You’re a very caring and woke person. We all see that. Good job. If you want to go act on it as an individual, to adopt or provide resources for those in need, by all means go do it. But if you’re doing it just because of someone’s ethnicity, and you’re trying to force your morality through the government, and I think your version of “morality” actually hurts a lot more than it helps, then I’m going to push back on it. So very simply: Kids in the USA are not entitled to keep that which their parents steal. That goes for cash. That goes for cars. And that goes for lawful residency.
No amnesty. No DACA. No lowered bars based on ethnicity. No entitlement to lawlessness or destruction of individual liberty.
Yes to love. Yes to equality. Yes to unity, progress and liberty. Yes to America First.
