The enemy among us

Make America Mogadishu Again?

So what happens to you now in a country run by the Taliban? It’s hard to think about that. And yet tonight many Americans are thinking about it and they’re feeling distressed as they do. Americans are kind people and generous. They’re quicker and more eager to help strangers than anyone else in the world. We haven’t seen polling on it, but we bet if you asked one hundred people, should we try to help Afghans who are facing persecution for helping us, most Americans would say, of course, we should. And we should be glad that they say that you should be happy you live in a country where your neighbors love children and dogs and want to help refugees. We are generous and empathetic people and we should be proud.

Unfortunately, there are many in our ruling class who are anxious to take advantage of that, anxious, to take advantage of our best qualities. They see our decency and our weakness, and they exploit those things and they do it relentlessly. Let’s try to save our loyal Afghan interpreters, we tell them. Perfect, they think. We’ll open the borders and change the demographic balance of this country. Of course, that’s exactly what they’re doing right now on our southern border, naturally in the name of human rights and compassion. And they would like to do the very same thing with the disaster unfolding in Afghanistan, the disaster that they created. Look at what this kid on MSNBC said yesterday, and remember, as you watch, that he is regarded with total seriousness in Washington as a foreign policy expert and that his fellow foreign policy experts wholeheartedly agree with him.

SPENCER ACKERMAN: We’re talking about an evacuation of people who helped the wars, and that’s an obligation of the United States but it’s sort of a moral floor that’s functioning as a moral ceiling. The Bush administration, I’m sorry the Biden administration, pardon me, isn’t doing things necessary like increasing TPS access and letting in refugees by the millions to escape their certain fate at the hands of the Taliban.

So we must “let in refugees by the millions,” said the mustachioed foreign policy expert. The millions. Millions is not a handful of loyal Afghan interpreters. That’s not even a fleet of cargo planes full of loyal Afghan interpreters. Millions is a good chunk of the entire population of Afghanistan, brought to our country at our expense to live in your neighborhood at the very moment our national fabric is fraying, in case you haven’t noticed, and the United States is becoming unmistakably poorer.

Do we really need millions of Afghan refugees in Phoenix, you ask? Shut up. Racist. OK, go ahead and do it. That’s how the process typically works. In fact, that’s pretty much how it always works with everything now. At this point, fighting racism is the universal justification for every bad idea. Tear down our statues. OK. Stop teaching math. OK. Get rid of standardized testing. All right. Defund the police, move millions of Afghan refugees to swing states to help the Democratic Party. OK. Oppose any of it, and you’re a racist. So in the end, it always happens. And in this case, it may happen. It probably will.

But what happens then to us? How will this new wave of immigration affect America? Will America be a better country or will it be a little more like Afghanistan, which is to say not really a better country? We can’t be sure of what’s going to happen. We can’t see the future. But for a hint, a glimpse, maybe we ought to pay some attention to what has happened in Europe recently. They just went through this. 

OK, so Afghan refugees have destabilized countries into which they have moved in large numbers, but we have a moral obligation to take them anyway. Really? Why is that? Why is this our unique moral burden? Isn’t the U.S. government’s first obligation to its own people? Isn’t that the only point of having a government to look out for its citizens? Why else have a government, actually?

After digesting all the other hard facts Tucker spells out in this crucial piece, the real question we need to ask ourselves is: why have THIS government?

How many of these Afghans and their family members, you have to wonder, are excited about coming to America? Huh. It’s interesting, maybe you should ask that question, maybe you should ask Ilhan Omar. Her position is the only reason that American citizens might object to being flooded with millions of new refugees from Afghanistan is that Americans, people who are born here and built this country are actually mediocre and insecure.

ILHAN OMAR: And then you’ve got these crazy people on the right doing what they always do with their fear-mongering and their hateful rhetoric, and I know what some of these people are worried about is that they’re worried that refugees like myself when they come to this country, will outshine them.

So the obvious response to that is to attack poor Ilhan Omar, but we’re not going to do that. The truth is, this is our fault. It is our fault. Ilhan Omar is living proof that we are not very good at resettling refugees. She was saved from a refugee camp in Kenya as a child by the kindness and generosity of America. And yet she has grown to hate America and the people who live here.

Where did she learn those attitudes? Well, of course, in college, our colleges, we taught her to hate our country. She became worse after she got here. We ought to pause before we do that again, to anyone, even if they’ve been translators.

Reading this article, it fairly well slaps you upside yo’ haid that the enormity of the multitudinous problems we face is simply overwhelming, almost beyond human ability to comprehend. That said, those problems all flow from a single source. We know full well what that source is, just as we also know the one and only way it can ever be shut down. That’s the long and the short of it, folks.

This article spells out some of the terrible consequences of welcoming Afghan refugees:

You know what? Their country sucks so pick up a gun and fight the Taliban and fix your country.

These people’s only skill was passable English to help us understand what was going on in Afghanistan. They have no skill values we need here in the US.

The most important thing people like Patron taught US. Don’t lose. Kill the other poor basterd before he kills you. Read their books Win.

That’s the bottom line. Uncle Sugar can’t be responsible for the fates of millions of people (actually billions) in foreign shitholes.

If that makes NOT NICE, well, too bad. Our Niceness has only bought us hatred around the world and yet at the same time they all want to come here, but only to take advantage of US and the American People.

Enough. Earn your own Freedom and then maybe we’ll deem to respect you again.

Send them weapons and ammo and they can sort out their own country.

BTW that should be Patton and not ‘Patron’.

I wish I could sit at a computer all day but life intrudes. Personally I do like life intruding too. But at least I can try to get my Fury Colder while I’m at it.

There’s usefulness about a smart phone, but drawbacks as well.

Ain’t that the bitch about technology.

This was all deliberate.

Every part of our “government” has been corrupted.

Not exactly. I’ve been really surprised that no one seems to have noticed that Omar’s family were among the ruling government that caused the disaster that is Somalia. It isn’t hidden – even Wikipedia still has it: Her father was a colonel under dictator Siad Barre and a “teacher trainer” (let’s guess what that entailed). Her grandfather was ” director of [Barre’s ]National Marine Transport, and some of Omar’s uncles and aunts also worked as civil servants and educators.” These highly-placed government officials only fled after the genocidal Barre was overthrown and the common people began looking for their oppressors.

That same grandfather groomed her deliberately to govern here in the same way he and his cronies had helped govern Somalia. On arrival, he immediately began attending caucuses and influencing Minnesota politics. Her family only snuck into a refugee camp by lying about who they were, changing their names, and pretending to be simple citizens, when in reality they were members of the brutal regime overthrown by the civil war. They arrived here and began working to replicate Barre’s work in Somalia. Ilhan did not learn to hate America after arriving: she is among the class that seeks power for its own sake and hates anyone who dare limit them.

Interesting.

And we allow that.

The House was always considered by the Founders to be the “lower” house but also the most revolutionary. Because, until direct Election of Senators, it was the most democratic portion of the legislature and of any part of the three parts of the Constitutional Government.

The Founders did NOT have a favorable impression of pure democracy and for good reason.

Plus, she married her brother.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
