Playing the part of Doctor Kervorkian will be Senator John McCain.
John McCain: Well, look, I’ll give you a little straight talk. Look at the last election. Look at the last election. We are losing dramatically the Hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we’ve got to understand that. Second of all, we can’t go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. We cannot forever have children who were brought here by their parents when they were small children to live in the shadows, as well. So I think the time is right.
I stole this from The Other McCain. Why not clicky that linky and read the rest of his post? Come back when your finished.
Now please forgive me a moment, but I’m going to run a quick multiple choice quiz. It’s only one question, so don’t sweat too hard. Are you ready? Okee-dokee, here it is.
What is the purpose of immigration?
A: To help white guilt liberals feel good about themselves.
B: To create a cheap labor source for crony socialist corporations.
C: To give diversity trainers a reason to exist.
D: To make the United States stronger.
If you answered “D”, you win a free one year subscription to Blog De KingShamus and an E-High Five!
(Please note–there is no such thing as an E-High Five. Sorry Tennessee…and everywhere else.)
The only reason why you bring immigrants into the country is to make it better. Any immigration policy that doesn’t make America a more powerful nation, in observable quantifiable ways, is idiocy soaked in stupidity slathered in mendacity wrapped in a zesty bullshit crust. Also, score it a total loss if the purveyors of any new policy employ multi-culti pablum like ‘Diversity Is Strength’, ‘Live in the shadows’ or ‘Nation of Immigrants’ to justify the program.
For those who think the GOP congress will get a pat on the back from Hispanic voters for passing an some sort of amnesty immigration reform, I have one simple phrase: “1965 Civil Rights Act”. More Republicans voted for it than Democrats. Senate Democrats fillibustered the thing as much as they possibly could. Of course, who got the credit? Part-time Democrat President and full-time mega bigot Lyndon Johnson, naturally.
So here’s how it’s going to go down:
Republicans desperately want to be BFFs with Latinos, so they lead the charge to get an amnesty bill passed. It’ll be filled with a lot of tough talk about enforcement and triggers and other folderol that will be nothing more than rhetorical fig leaves meant to fool conservatives. The amnesty that dare not speak it’s name will blow through both chambers of Congress with massive bipartisan support. Obama will have an enormous signing ceremony, surrounded by his usual cadre of human props. Steve Kroft will lead the MSM cheerleaders praising the Democrats for finally solving this decades-long problem.
Meanwhile, Republicans will quickly get swept aside in the media narrative of ‘Barack–Benevolent Guardian of Hispanic Hopes And Dreams’. Marco Rubio will get emo after he does all the work to get this monstrosity passed and none of the glory. When Telemundo dutifully points out that many GOPers didn’t vote for shamnesty, the RNC will be shocked to find Latinos still think the Party of Lincoln is populated by racists.
Here’s the real kick in the teeth. If you want a picture of the future, imagine eleven million formerly illegal immigrants voting Democrat—forever. Republican permanent minority party status: ACHIEVED!
