This comes on hot on the heels of a federal judge throwing out Arizona’s lawsuit against the Obama administration, a federal judge blocking Arizona’s SB 1070, a federal judge blocking the Arizona-style immigration law in the “Utah compromise,” a federal judge blocking Georgia’s Arizona-style immigration law, a federal judge blocking portions of Indiana’s new immigration law, and federal judges blocking several portions of Alabama’s new immigration law.
The SPLC is currently suing Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina in federal court on the behalf of illegal aliens to fight various state immigration laws. In Florida, their goal is to force the state to repudiate its current policy and grant in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens.
A recent CNN poll has found that only 15 percent of Americans trust Washington to do the right thing “always or most of the time.” The previous record low in confidence in the federal government (17 percent) was set in the summer of 1994.
In September 2010, 25 percent of American trusted the federal government to do the right thing “always or most of the time.” That was before the Democrats were blown away in the 2010 midterm elections.
Just a decade ago, 35 to 45 percent of Americans trusted the federal government to do the right thing “always or most of the time.” This means that confidence in the federal government in actually lower in 2011 than it was during the War Between the States.
With Election Day just over a year away, a deep sense of economic anxiety and doubt about the future hangs over the nation, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, with Americans’ distrust of government at its highest level ever.
As I predicted last year, the push for new state laws that crackdown on illegal immigration and laws which indirectly target the Black Undertow are a win-win situation for us that we should all be able to support.
(1) It puts our enemies like the SPLC and ACLU on the defensive and forces them to file unpopular lawsuits in federal courts which deplete their resources and corrode their legitimacy.
(2) It polarizes public opinion against the entire political spectrum that could be considered our opposition from agribusiness to Republican oligarchs to “civil rights organizations” to the liberal media and to the Democratic Party.
(3) If we win in federal court, we shift the goal posts. Case in point, the final victory in the Supreme Court on the Hazelton ordinance and the E-Verify system.
(4) If we lose in federal court, we are given a golden opportunity to polarize White people against the federal government and to undermine its legitimacy.
(5) Just by putting up a fight, we attract people to our cause, change the political landscape within the Republican Party on immigration (see the collapse of the Rick Perry campaign), and build momentum to push ahead in the state legislatures with future challenges to the status quo.
As for Florida’s new law that requires a drug test for welfare recipients (66 percent of whom are African-American, Hispanic, or multiracial), Judge Mary Scriven has only issued a temporary injunction. Florida will appeal the decision to the 11th Circuit which is handling Alabama’s immigration law.
We are under no illusions that Florida can survive the 21st century within the Union by playing this silly game of kowtowing before negro federal judges.
These state laws and court battles are useful only insofar as they prove to ordinary people that the system is hopelessly broken, that federal judges make all the important decisions, that America is now in terminal decline, and that a coalition of special interest groups and federal bureaucrats have erected themselves as a tyranny over the people of the Southern states.
The ultimate goal is to destroy the legitimacy of the federal government by shredding the myth that it is “representative” in any true sense of the word. Before we can reach the glorious day that is the dissolution of the Union, we first have to do some consciousness raising and succeed in undermining multiracial democracy.
Note: The U.S. Supreme Court is on the verge of taking a case that could overthrow Grutter vs. Bollinger and abolish affirmative action in college admissions in the United States.
The U.S. Supreme Court will also be weighing in on Obamacare in 2012 and could set a precedent that would restore the Tenth Amendment and overthrow 70 years of liberal jurisprudence.Follow Hunter Wallace on Gab, VK, Facebook and Twitter.
