“[T]here’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before…”
”Not all these fears are irrational,” he wrote.
“The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” (the author) noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”
“Native-born Americans suspect that it is they, and not the immigrant, who are being forced to adapt” to social changes caused by migration, he said.
“And if I’m honest with myself, I must admit that I’m not entirely immune to such nativist sentiments,” (he) wrote. “When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, MAN, take off the Klan hood and recognize the inherent worthiness of the hopes of Dream A Little Dreamers all over the country!
Ah well, h8ers gotta h8, I reckon. And since I’m sure you already figured out who this particular h8er is, I’ll let McQ give ya a steer to another radical extremely extremist statement he made a while back. Just for the yocks, y’understand.
Gee, it’s too bad that guy wasn’t elected president, eh? On the other hand, in a very real sense, he was. It’s just that he never took office; the lying fraud behind the mask did instead.
Update! Geraghty finds more, this one from an address the Liar in Thief gave to his racist-thug homies of La Raza:
Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. (Applause.) And believe me, right now dealing with Congress –
AUDIENCE: Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can!
THE PRESIDENT: Believe me — believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. (Laughter.) I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. (Laughter.) But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Change it!
THE PRESIDENT: That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.
It certainly isn’t–not that that bit of irrelevant trivia really matters to either the audience or the speaker in this case. But boil it down and it means that as both a practical and an ethical matter, Old Obama would have to be in favor of impeaching New Obama. Talk about your Reality Dysfunctions. This one is beginning to make me a bit dizzy.
