‘Immigration Reform’ Is Just Another Term For ‘Republican Suicide’

Posted by KingShamus on January 29, 2013

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!

Amnesty Still Sucks

Posted by KingShamus on November 20, 2010

Hey kids, the dead duck douchebag Congress has got a fevah, and the only prescription is more AMNESTY!

In the post-election “lame duck” session of Congress, Obama and the Democrats will focus on jobs, jobs, jobs. … Oh, wait, no. They’ll focus on passing a big amnesty for illegal immigrants, in order to reward their Latino “base”–which was only 8 percent of the national vote but supposedly cares with something approaching monomania about amnesty (despite evidence that Hispanic American opinion is shifting against illegal immigration). … When did the Democrats’ African-American base–11 percent of the vote–get that kind of service?

Oh Mickey Kaus, you ask the most hilarious hypothetical questions.

The Democrats ‘care’ about Latinos because they’re a growing population segment.  Unlike black folk, who abort their babies at something like a 30% clip, Hispanics haven’t completely guzzled down the demographic-choking life-hating pro-choice kool aid.  Since Donkey-Punchers can still be bothered to read an actuarial table every once in a while, they know they’re going to need a more robust minority group to keep on the statist plantation in order to win 21st century elections.

I know people want to make this more complicated—Democrat concerns for minorities, traditional liberal support for social programs, open-borders libertarianism, blahblahfuckingblah—but it really is just about pure electoral politics.  The Democrat Party needs votes.  They see amnesty as a way of stocking up on a large voting bloc for future elections, when they believe El Estados Unidos will be far more Latin and much more liberal than it is today.

As far as current Hispanic-Americans and their feelings about illegal immigration, let’s take a closer look.

A new study shows Latinos have soured considerably on illegal immigration in the last three years.

In 2007, 50 percent of Latinos surveyed told the Pew Hispanic Center that the growing number of illegal immigrants was a positive force for the existing Latino population. In a Pew survey released last week, that number had plummeted to 29 percent.

Thirty-one percent said illegal immigration had a negative effect, and 20 percent said it had no effect.

Common sense would suggest that a blanket acceptance of amnesty amongst Hispanics would be unlikely.  First of all, the idea that you can group all Hispanics together into one big bloc of voters is problematic.  A dude from the Mexico feels a national affinity with his native country, not to some nebulous ‘Hispanic’ concept that doesn’t exist except in US Census questionnaires and American college applications.  Nor does that same Mexican feel a strong fraternal allegiance to Panama or Cuba.  A Honduran woman comes to America with a different set of cultural and historical assumptions than a woman from Argentina.  Moreover, these feelings don’t tend to cross over to another Latin American nationality nearly as much as some folks seem to believe.    

On top of all that, it’s important to take into account things like geographic factors, length of time in America, education and economic attainment when looking at a potential Hispanic voting bloc.  A Dominican man with a high school diploma who lives in Washington Heights, New York, works in a corner store and has been in America for less than two years is more than likely going to have a different sort of political beliefs than a Peruvian guy who has lived in rural Kansas for the last twenty years, has an MBA and runs a business.

Because Latinos really aren’t a monolithic voting bloc, if a political party jumps whole-hog onto the DREAM Act bandwagon they’re likely to alienate large segments of the Hispanic populace.  This is one reason why the GOP’s dalliance with amnesty under George W. Bush was so monumentally bone-headed.  What were they thinking?  “Let’s get Hispanics to vote for us by passing something that’s going to piss off a whole shit-load of Hispanics who’ve been in America longer than five minutes.”  Really?

Furthermore, somebody in the Democrat Party needs to explain how amnesty makes political sense now.  Unemployment is 9.6%.  Passing the DREAM Act with no real border control mechanisms in place would almost surely invite more illegals into the country.  Voters who are nervous about getting employed or keeping their jobs are not going to be thrilled about yet another tidal wave of undocumented folks putting heavy downward pressure on wages and benefits.  Better still, unease about maintaining a precarious economic position during the Obambi Recession isn’t just being felt by native citizens.  Many Hispanic-Americans have to be fretting about keeping out of the unemployment office.

But of course, the political geniuses that gave us the gargantuan Democrat bloodbath in the 2010 midterms are now dead-set on passing another politically suicidal piece of legislation.  Bravo, Nancy and Harry.  Way to prove everybody right about just how idiotic you two window-lickers are.  Enjoy pounding your approval ratings down into the single digits.
