Vicious Leftist hate again
I have been saying for years now that the basic motivation of the Left is hate -- hate for the world about them and hate for their own country as part of that. They hate and want to want to destroy "the system" around them. Most people probably thought that what I said was a bit much but can anybody doubt it now, after witnessing the flood of hate that the Left have poured out at Mr Trump and his supporters? There's another instance of it below.
And it's not just a few loonies doing it. It's across the board -- from restaurant owners to Congresscritters -- with big contributions from Hollywood, the media, the educational system and most of the bureaucracy. Fortunately, the military is always solidly conservative or else we might have had some sort of coup or revolution by now.
It just took a real conservative to come on the scene for the masks to fall. Mr Trump's approval among Republican voters is now above 90% so Trumpism now IS American conservatism. The weak-kneed conservatives of the GOP in the past who allowed themselves to be abashed by Leftist flim-flam have now been left behind by history. We are now looking at a real Left-Right contest and we see that in their motivations the American Left is just as hate-fuelled and murderous as the Left has always been, from the gory French revolution with its busy guillotines, to Stalin to Hitler and to Mao. The basic psychology of all Leftists is clearly the same.
The Leftist claim to be tolerant and compassionate was always a mask to enable them to gain dominance over others. Now that the dominance is being reversed, the resultant rage has caused all such pretences to be sidelined. The Left are now revealed as the intolerant thugs and would-be murderers that they are. America has enemies within its ranks and, as such, conservatives are America's defenders. They must win or America will gradually become as shackled as any communist country. It was already developing that way until Trump came along and offered liberty from it.
And it's all so predictable if you know the classic Freudian defence mechanisms. A major such defence mechanism if you want to deny the existence of something is projection. You claim to see in others what is really true of yourself. And Leftists have for years been accusing conservatives of hate at the drop of a hat. And you don't even need to drop a hat, usually. So to see what is true of them you just have to look at what they have long said about conservatives. They attempt to deflect attention away from their own hate by claiming to see it in others
In speaking of Leftists, I am of course speaking of committed Leftists, not unwary people who are conned into voting for them at election time.
The Democrats have about as much chance of abolishing ICE as they do of abolishing ice — as in, the solid form of water. That would be political suicide.
What about threatening ICE agents and other immigration officers, though? I mean, not just threatening them with the loss of their job or department — I mean literally threatening them. If you’re in a safe enough district and have no respect for yourself or others, why not?
Rep. Ruben Gallego is just such a person. He’s currently the congressman for Arizona’s 7th District, a comfortably Democrat parcel of that desert state where he carries about 135 percent of the vote most years. (Rough estimate.)
The district is centered in a part of Phoenix proper where Immigration and Customs Enforcement isn’t exactly the most popular entity there is. That’s why Rep. Gallego decided to do something very foolish.
His first mistake was retweeting MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. Hayes’ brand of TV journalism is so yellow you actually have to adjust the color balance on your television every time you watch his show. He doesn’t disappoint on Twitter, either:
"Citizens having their papers demanded, then confiscated and then put in detention and ordered into deportation proceedings. The historical resonances here are clear as bell".
The Washington Post story in question has to do with issuing passports to individuals whose documents the state feels are questionable. Here is what is buried several paragraphs deep in the Washington Post’s story:
“The government alleges that from the 1950s through the 1990s, some midwives and physicians along the Texas-Mexico border provided U.S. birth certificates to babies who were actually born in Mexico. In a series of federal court cases in the 1990s, several birth attendants admitted to providing fraudulent documents."
“Based on those suspicions, the State Department during the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations denied passports to people who were delivered by midwives in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. The use of midwives is a long-standing tradition in the region, in part because of the cost of hospital care.”
This did not find its way into Hayes’ tweet, for reasons which “are clear as bell.” Hayes also didn’t mention the White House’s statement, reported by Fox News, that the number of passport applications declined, for this reason, had actually gone down.
For reasons which are not “clear as bell,” Rep. Gallego thought this was an appropriate response to that tweet:
"If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned. When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President's administration"
Basically, in case you’re a Chris Hayes-watcher and didn’t get the subtext there, he’s comparing immigration and other government officials to Nazis and threatening them. Solid work there, Rep. Gallego.
