Requiem for a Dream

NY Times: Obama should gut the Border Patrol

New York

Over the course of the past year, I have developed an intense dislike of “progressives.”

Barack Obama and the Democrats are so awful that they have succeeded in accomplishing what was unthinkable a mere two years ago: they have made the conservatives look somewhat reasonable in comparison.

Millions of White Americans who passionately despised George W. Bush can vote for the “Party of No” with a clear conscience. As long as the Republicans keep being the “Party of No” when it comes to the progressive agenda on things like the DREAM Act and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, I suspect their electoral fortunes will continue to improve.

If you can stomach it, read the latest editorial in The New York Times on the “DREAM Act.” The authoritative voice of Blue America recommends:

(1) Curbing the Department of Homeland Security. In other words, since the Obama administration didn’t get the quid pro quo they wanted for stepping up enforcement, they should abandon even the pretense of caring about border security.

In their words, DHS is “deporting at a record pace many of the very people he says deserve a chance to stay.” The “Secure Communities” program must be reformed to prevent every police department in the country from becoming an arm of ICE.

(2) Obama should order the border patrol to “stop harassing and scaring innocent people.” In other words, they should be given specific instructions not to to do their jobs.

They should not protect the states from invasion. Instead, the federal government should protect the invaders from the states.

(3) He should halt deportation proceedings for the DREAMers. They are illegal aliens, but deporting them can be stopped under “the time-honored practice” of selectively enforcing the law.

(4) The Labor Department should “redouble efforts to expose wage-and-hour violations endemic in the immigrant workplace.” In other words, the Labor Department should focus its energies … not on putting American citizens back to work, but on raising wages for illegal aliens who compete with the native unemployed.

(5) Obama can also “defend against the propaganda” that all illegal aliens are “by definition a class of criminals instead of people trapped in a web of bad laws, misguided policies and squandered potential.”

The millions of illegal aliens that have invaded our country are not the problem. The problem is that there isn’t enough lawlessness and anarchy on the border.

Alternatively, the federal government must use every ounce of its power to protect foreign criminals who live like parasites off American taxpayers from native citizens exercising their sovereign right to self government.

(6) The enforcement of existing immigration laws should be held hostage to amnesty for illegal aliens.

Oh yeah … after “progressives” get the amnesty they desire so much, then they are really going to step up enforcement against “people trapped in a web of bad laws, misguided policies and squandered potential.”

In return for surrender to amnesty for illegal aliens, we can get a nice shiny “Hope and Change” IOU from Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid, Keith Olbermann and The New York Times.

It is another promise on the same level as … hell, I don’t know … reducing unemployment, ending the Bush tax cuts for the rich, reviving the economy, balancing the budget, ending the foreign wars, bringing the millions of lost jobs back from overseas, creating a “post-partisan” and “post-racial” society.

No one who calls themselves a “progressive” should be allowed anywhere near power at the federal or state level.

  1. A simple declaration of war against Mexico, preferably backdated to the day after the Reagan amnesty, should provide the legal justification to put every progressive behind barbed wire for life.

  2. If anyone has not read: Culture of Critique, by – Kevin Macdonald, you must do so, immediately. The chapter on immigration defines, in eloquent detail, just how White culture, and, indeed, White existence, have been assaulted and infringed upon.

    You can read chapter 7 – Jewish Involvement in Shaping U.S. Immigration Policy – from Macdonald’s website:

    Or, if anyone wants to download the the entire book, for free, and other works – from the vanguard to mainstream academia – you can do so at this website:

    Merry Xmas.

  3. Yes, it is a sad situation and getting worse continually with the huge economic load of illegals taking work from Americans, the closing of business concerns that have moved abroad for cheap labor and the importation of skilled or even professional workers (i.e.: Micro$oft bringing in H1-B visa workers and hospitals bringing in nurses from India) to take our places. I now have more friends and acquaintances who are out of work, unemployed and on unemployment assistance than I do people who are employed. And the New York Times thinks B.O. should get the Border Patrol to ignore illegals? Insanity reigns supreme in the land.

  4. Keep in mind that there are many Republicans and conservatives who agree with the NYT here. Most “business” interests, parts of the “religious right” and many GOP political hacks still favor amnesty.

    Any support given to the GOP must be done with an eye towards dis-empowering those people and replacing them with people who are sincerely on the right side of the immigration issue.

  5. “Progressives” have bothered you for a whole year now?

    If so, you’re the last person who should be criticizing the me-too party. Hell, the party was founded on “progressivism”.

    Wake up, Hunter. Without a full-fledged “pogrom”, your system is dead.

  6. Alfred Rosenberg:
    “Wake up, Hunter. Without a full-fledged “pogrom”, your system is dead.”

    I read an interesting quote by Voltaire the other day, that matches your behavior exactly:

    “crawling in misfortune, and insolent in prosperity”

    [The Jewish nation] dares spread an irreconcilable hatred against all nations; it revolts against all its masters. Always superstitious, always avid of the well-being enjoyed by others, always barbarous, crawling in misfortune, and insolent in prosperity. Here are what were the Jews in the eyes of the Greeks and the Romans who could read their books. —Voltaire

    There have been so many pogroms throughout your history, yet you always try to provoke one more. So what is that with Jews? Is it a secret wish for destruction?

    Either way, I think your people should be ignored by our side. You are only 30 million and yet you always demand to be the center of our attention. To the rest of the world you are irrelevant. Only Whites care about your existence and the rest of the world being 90% non-White, couldn’t care a less what happens to you. We Whites should do the same. Shun Jews as non-Whites like we do all non-Whites and let nature take its course.

  7. We noty only need to …ahhhh…declare war on MeHEEco – we need to terminatge with extreme prejudice. Get rid of the solution once and for all.

    The Jew York Slimes need to be declared and Enemey of OUR State. And regarded as such.

  8. ATBOTL,

    (1) There were 11 Republicans who voted for the DREAM Act in the House and Senate. 4 are coming back next year.

    (2) I think it is safe to say at this point that populist conservatives have been successful at changing the tune of the GOP on immigration.

    (3) Conservatives are overwhelmingly opposed to amnesty and gutting ICE.

    (4) The business community supports amnesty, but this problem is well known, and we have been successful at defeating their lobbying.

    (5) Well … of course.

    I dedicated an entire thread to knocking off Dick Lugar and replacing him with a more amenable candidate like Mike Delph. I haven’t said anywhere that we should support any conservative or Republican.

    It does make sense to systematically prune the bad ones while replacing them with better candidates.
