I’m Sick and Tired of Racial and Ethnic Chauvinists

 

It’s bad enough the Democrats have helped launch an invasion on our border that we have to fight. We then have Republicans who go to these gatherings of these soulless, despicable, overinflated losers. And these Republicans prostrate themselves about how we, the American people and the US, don’t give people dignity if we don’t hand our country away. We then have to fight our own party when this party should be united against the absolute lawlessness on our border.

Where is the fight for the dignity of every American whose property is destroyed by illegals? Where’s the fight for dignity for the American citizens raped and murdered when they wouldn’t have been had the American government done its job?

What do Americans get amnesty from? Has there been any call to give any American citizen amnesty for so much as a parking ticket? How about amnesty for paying your income tax for just a year? There was no call for amnesty for Americans who didn’t have their covid vaccine papers. But foreigners who don’t have papers of any kind and knowingly break our laws need to be given “dignity.”

Americans didn’t choose to have covid mandates foisted upon them. Americans didn’t choose to be kept under house arrest. Americans didn’t choose to have their livelihoods shut down and destroyed. And where were politicians like this Salazar fraud demanding dignity? Nowhere. Illegals chose to be illegal. That’s why they’re illegal. They chose not to go through a legitimate process. I have no sympathy for them.

People who support their own narrow interests and anoint themselves the saviors of this group or that group are poison. The common good of this nation matters. And the common good should not be sacrificed so 12 to 15 million people who deserve nothing can get rewarded for their bad behavior. The same way the traditional morality of this nation and culture matters and should not be sacrificed for the idiosyncrasies and degenerate behaviors of individuals and the “communities” they belong to.

We aren’t just a nation of laws. We are a nation. The law hasn’t been obeyed in good faith and neither has our shared identity as a nation been flexed and put forward. We’ve taken a back seat of the well-being of the greater whole to placate the selfish wants of every phony cause that claims they’re aggrieved. And there is no amount we can give to these perpetually dissatisfied and miserable people that will satiate them. They’re vampires who live off the lifeblood of a healthy host. It’s time the host said no more.

    The biggest problem as far as I can see is that even if they assimilate, they assimilate into a system that effectively pays them for living instead of paying them for working.  I knew a lot of guys who were hard working, working under that table, but still receiving welfare benefits.  And this includes not only illegals but legals as well.

    A couple things . . .

    One, any Republican who “dignifies” the World Economic Forum by attending that Satanic Convocation needs to be tossed from office immediately.

    Two, in context I’m unclear on her meaning. In this short clip, she does say to “seal the border” and then give them dignity as a part of “our community,” but until I’m made certain what she means by that, I’m back to number One.

    Also, who cares that they look like her and talk like her? Why did she mention that? You don’t get moral cover for being a particular race or speak a particular language. I’m tired of the worship of particular races (or basically all races except white ones). Is this racist? Racialist? I don’t care, but it’s anti-American. Shame on any “Republican” who uses the language of the left. Please unmask yourself as a Democrat, okay?

    Who is this idiot? Dignity is not something given to you by others. Respect is, if you earn it.

    The modern theory, for 50-60 years at least, seems to be that everyone deserves dignity and respect, earned or not.

    I don’t know where this came from.  It seems vaguely feminist, to me.  It was also the demand of MLK in the civil rights movement.

    It seems tied to toleration and non-judgmentalism in morality.

    Thomas Sowell said it best: If you’re telling me you have a right to my respect, you are telling me I don’t have a right to my own opinion. 

    WFB, Jr. had a good exchange with a civil rights activist on “dignity”. If I could find it, I’d post it.

    Buckley’s comments were based on this definition:

    dignity

    dĭg′nĭ-tē

    noun

    1. The quality or state of being worthy of esteem or respect.
    2. Inherent nobility and worth.
    3. Poise and self-respect.

    Here’s a thought.   What if each of the 31,000,000 illegal immigrants was to pay a $1M fine?  Then we could pay off most of our debt.   Would it be worth it?

    Does $1M mean $1 million?

    If you mean $1,000, then the amount would be only $31 billion, which is a fraction of one percent of the debt.

    If you mean $1 million, do you think that all of those illegal immigrants have $1 million in the bank?

    That’s funny.  I thought they certainly neither look like her nor talk like her and she’d just been trying to make them appear to be like educated and engaging WEF speakers like her when they’re really not at all like her.

    It’s so easy to go to WEF and intend to tell them how it really is in my district in Texas or in the state of Georgia. I’m going to tell them about illegal immigration or staying open during covid. But once you get there, they seduce you with nice dinners, cocktail hours, fancy hotels, and thousands of other attendees who just go along to get along. It’s a rare person who can stand up to that kind of pressure and stick his finger in their eyes and tell them to their faces that they are wrong. Then you come back home and think that maybe the WEF folks are really not so bad after all. Maybe I should accommodate their views just a bit. And before you know it, you are part of the global swamp.

    If you’re one of the rare ones who can go to Davos and raise hell, go for it. But if they’re going to turn you into a swamp creature, stay home.

    So many threads worth pulling here.

    Especially for a US Representative, doesn’t the dignity of voters and citizens count more? What about our dignity as these people flout our laws, language, and customs? What about our dignity as millions of illegals apply negative wage pressure on the rest of us while at the same time apply pressure to our utility and government systems? Exactly who does this person think she’s supposed to be representing? Citizens and voters? Or people who look and speak like her?

    I think we’ve come a long way from when our elected representatives give a thought to who they’re representing. They don’t represent, they just present. They present themselves to lobbyists and the donor class as an empty coffer waiting to be filled.

    I’ve said before that I don’t consider being white to hold much identity content. However, I keep getting this signal from leftists mostly that I’m wrong about that. I dont want to be a racialist (and definitely not a racist), but geez I also dont want to be the guy without a chair once the music stops.

    I wonder if racialists know what kind of fire they’re playing with. The US changed radically for the better on matters of race back in the 60’s and 70’s and beyond, but there is this insistence to re-embrace race as a key source of identity. Except for whites who are only to bear guilt for any sins attributed to them. Well, nuts to that.

    My prayer is that non-racialists of any race or background wake up and unite already. I also pray that we are actually the silent majority instead of the declining minority.

    Cops, for instance, don’t deserve dignity and respect. White men don’t. Black conservatives don’t. Trump voters don’t. Pro-lifers don’t. The victims of Democrat sex predators don’t. 

    Etc. Etc.

    It’s a bit like that sound-bite “Progressives don’t care about facts, just feelings.”

    Nope. They don’t care about your feelings.

    I think she is right.  Rubio said the same thing in 2016 (shhhh it became Trumps plan).  1st step is to control the southern border, then deal with the illegal immigrants in already here working.  This is much better than the current plan of naturalizing everyeone already here  and ignoring the boarder.

    Everyone can be turned into a swamp creature if you dabble in it long enough. They find your weakness and turn you to the dark side. Much better to flee temptation.
