As of today, the Senate is not only entertaining S.B. 1348 but also the recently taken-up S.B. 1639 — new deals for the same Senators under ruse of a different title, same Amnesty, same Monster. Most who will read this are well aware of these Monsters in far more details than I might regroup here — but the point is, if you haven’t called your Senators yet to oppose Amnesty and so many other violations of trust that are being considered today by our Senate and White House, please give them a call. Although in California, I consider it a lost cause to even try to communicate with the offices of Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, given their invovlements to-date in so much about both these bills (and conditiions related) that is vile and wrong.
If you call, however, you’ve at least made an attempt to speak reason to nonsense, if not corruption.
…it goes on and on and on and on: the Senate and our White House defy voter opinion, voter demands.
And this is a very insightful column: “IS ‘DECENCY’ ENOUGH FOR CITIZENSHIP?”
(My response is, no, no it is not and it’s disheartening to hear a Hispanic ethnic supremacist in our White House, among several others grouped in this current Administration, and many others lined-up in the Democrat candidates’ campaigns eager to take up the same intents.)
…”When you grow up in Texas like…I did,” Bush recently told McClatchy Newspapers, “you recognize the decency and hard work and humanity of Hispanics.” A lovely testimonial, but hardly a criterion on which to offer amnesty to some 12 to 20 million illegal aliens, even if they are mainly Hispanic. Half the world’s population are undoubtedly just as decent, hard-working and humane, but that doesn’t qualify the non-Hispanic billions (who haven’t broken innumerable U.S. laws) for citizenship — at least not yet.
But the rosy — better, hazy — view from the hacienda porch doesn’t take this in. Instead, Bush not only imagines comprehensively reforming the illegal, mainly Hispanic millions into citizens, but also “assimilating” them into Americans. The president doesn’t seem to have noticed that the multicultural states of America long ago junked the “assimilation” process as being “Eurocentric,” “racist” and worse. Nope, he’s still talking about “this system’s capacity to assimilate newcomers” as though it’s the Statue of Liberty’s birthday — her 50th birthday in 1936. This “capacity to assimilate,” he says, “has been one of the great, powerful traditions of America. It works, and it will work this time.”
It will? Question from McClatchy: “Do you think we assimilate immmigrants as well as in previous waves?”
Bush’s answer: “Absolutely.”
Obviously, Bush hasn’t ridden a rush-hour bus where no English is spoken, or listened to a business office recording asking “oprima el numero dos.” But not even the presidential bubble excuses him from failing to notice the cultural transformation this country has undergone over the past half century. From his inviolate state of oblivion, Bush views “a backlash against newcomers” as being the only conceivable threat to the assimilation process — and more. “I am deeply concerned about America losing its soul,” he said, bemoaning the country’s opposition to illegal — illegal — immigration. “I am worried that a backlash to newcomers could cause our country to lose its great capacity to assimilate newcomers.”
America’s soul has been gasping for survival for ages. This has nothing to do with Bush’s “backlash” bogeyman — which, frankly, sounds like another slap at Americans who want U.S. sovereignty upheld. Maybe Bush is just being emotional. But it’s clear where his emotions lie, and it’s not with conservatives. And I don’t think they stop at the border, either.
And this “links and activism thread” that provides excellent, well, links as to this and related critical issues…
Note the voter poll at that site, which reveals the high majority of participants opposing the “Senate Immigration Bill” otherwise known as the Amnesty Bill, SB 1348 (and now later attempted also as SB 1369, both today being considered before the Senate), who consider this “an abomination in the Senate” as well we should.
And, finally, from fellow-Americans in Los Angeles this past weekend, these heroic words:
