Imagine 2050 wants the National Guard deployed to Arizona to protect illegal aliens and drug traffickers from “organized racism” and “border vigilantes.” In their words, this is about “civil rights,” not “national security.” Apparently, it is a “civil right” now for foreign criminals (including thieves, rapists, and murderers) to break into America, squat on American soil, and terrorize U.S. citizens.
The precedent of President Eisenhower and the Little Rock Nine is invoked. Imagine 2050 wants troops sent to Arizona to “serve as a warning to other states” that “the nation will not stand for individual States dismantling and treading upon the Constitutional rights of its citizens.”
“Racist activity” must not be allowed to “stand in the way of democracy.” This is a reference to the 70% of Arizonans and 57% of Americans who support the new Arizona law. The Tennessee House recently passed a resolution congratulating Arizona for cracking down on illegal aliens.
Unfortunately, President Obama is too astute of a politician to follow Imagine 2050’s insane advice. A military occupation of Arizona by the federal government would ignite the Tea Party movement like never before. The Democratic Party would be annihilated, not merely shunned, in the midterm elections.
Obama is already losing the battleground states. His net approval rating is -6.5, Colorado; -2.7, North Carolina; -7.8, Ohio; -5.0, Nevada; -3.0, Pennsylvania; -28, Arkansas; -13, Indiana; -11.5, Missouri; -3.0, Iowa. Obama was -19 in Louisiana and -1.7 in Florida before the Gulf Oil Spill. In Arizona, Obama was -18 two weeks ago. Obama is even -2.5 in Wisconsin and -3.5 in Michigan. In Virginia, Obama is also in negative territory, but I can’t find any recent numbers.
I wish Obama would send troops to Arizona to defend illegal aliens from locals. He would lose all the Red States, every battleground state in America, and several of the Blue States (Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania) that are in his column. The credibility of the Democratic Party in the South and West would be destroyed for a generation.
The world Imagine 2050 envisions is already rejected by a broad majority of White Americans. All we need is an overt act by the federal government against the states to get the White Nationalist movement rolling again.
