Gnashing of teeth. Rending of garments. Wringing of hands. Wetting of beds. Sucking of thumbs. Furrowing of brows. Crapping of pants.
These are just a few of the reactions to the report of Lil’ Dick Durbin, who claims that President Trump asked – in a private meeting – why “they” ( the politicians in attendance) want to bring in people from “sh!thole” countries. The hetero-phobic primetime lineup on CNN became even more hyper, claiming “racism!” and “unfit!”.
Well, for one…….I laughed my ass off. After I regained my composure and unwrapped the actual news of the day, I stopped laughing and starting fuming. Why? Because the purveyors of Fake Outrage that inhabit the idiot box aren’t just phonies and liars, they are a clear and present danger to the people of The United States.
Just in case you don’t know what “virtue signaling” is, I’ll give you a brief primer: Virtue Signaling is the practice of loudly and vociferously, and almost always falsely, claiming you either love or hate something based on the proposition that others will hear you and acknowledge what a virtuous person you are. Need an example? Say, for instance, you have a “friend” on Facebook who is outraged at the position of Trump and his supporters on illegal immigration – and they frequently post their opinion about how awful , racist, and hateful the folks they disagree with are – yet they do nothing, spend nothing, and sacrifice nothing in support of their position. They don’t really care, and are likely so self-absorbed, ignorant, and shallow that they are simply paying lip-service to what they perceive as the popular public opinion in order to appear virtuous and moral.
I just described most of the people you know, and all of the people on all of cable news. It’s one of the reasons I have such contempt for those on the left. Hearing the same people who advocate for the most base and perverse ideas in our society claiming to be outraged at the use of the term “sh!thole countries” is preposterous. First of all, let’s have a little IQ test: What does “racist” mean? Let’s say that I say to you, ” we need to get these illegal Mexicans out of here…..”. If you think that phrase is “racist”, then you are an ignorant boob. Mexican is a nationality not a race. Somalian is a nationality not a race. If you cannot understand this fact then you are an idiot, and any debate or conversation with you must be undertaken with that fact in mind.
I’m asking the leftists reading this the following questions: Is there anyone from anywhere that should not be granted entry into the United States? Is being born the only qualification for access to America’s Welfare State? Are the people from another place and culture more important than you, your children and grandchildren? What number of illegal and legal immigrants per year are acceptable to you? Are you aware that 70 million plus foreign born people have emigrated here, under chain migration, in the last 30 years? Is it hard to breathe with your head up your sh!thole?
The truth that leftists, SJW’s, neocons, and progressives fail to realize is that not all cultures are the same, and some are better than others. In our current climate of non-assimilation and equivocation we have no room for error. In case you didn’t know, a lot of the places and countries in this world are dumpster fires.
Haiti is a giant sh!thole.
Muslim countries are hellish sh!tholes.
Much of Central and South America is an illiterate sh!thole.
Virtually the entire continent of Africa is a fetid sh!thole.
North Korea and rural China are sh!tholes.
Want to prove me wrong? Go to these places and tell me otherwise. Then tell me how importing the folks who made their home countries sh!tholes helps America. Then tell me how the same people who advocate for cutting the privates off of little kids in the name of “transgendering”, cutting global population for “climate change”, and destroying our liberty in the name of political correctness are experts in immigration. After you’re done with that, explain how the same culture that celebrates pimpin’ hos and “freeing the nipple”, as well as the use of crudity and profanity in all of our decrepit and spiritually bankrupt entertainment, is prepared to pass moral judgement on the rest of us. What a bunch of frauds. Every day they grow more ridiculous and exposed in their fake moral panic……..and it would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous.
Because it is one thing to have free immigration to jobs. It is another thing to have free immigration to welfare, and you cannot have both. If you have a welfare state, if you have a state in which every resident is promised a certain minimal level of income, regardless of whether he works or not, produces it or not……then it really is an impossible thing. – Milton Friedman
