As a Catholic, I wonder what my co-religionist Senator Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential candidate, thinks about WikiLeaks’ revelations that Clinton campaign operatives believe Catholics are “backward” on “gender relations,” and that Kaine’s conservative coreligionists are “bastardizing the faith” because they believe Church teachings about birth control, abortion, sodomy and homosexual marriages. Other emails reveal that John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chief, created fake Catholic groups (Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Catholics United) to AstroTurf the Church and “demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality.”
Actually, I don’t wonder what Kaine thinks—given his well-documented but under-reported past as a Leftist activist.
That past is of pressing concern to immigration patriots, as Kaine showed during his debate with Mike Pence. Aside from touting “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”—which, he unblushingly stated, means citizenship for millions of illegals—he said something truly frightening: Donald Trump’s plan to stop here what is happening in Europe because of Islamic immigration, he averred, would upset Thomas Jefferson.
Details later! But it means Kaine, a self-hating white, will certainly push Clinton even farther to the left on immigration, if anything farther to the left of Open Borders is possible.
Kaine isn’t, as he likes to pretend, a moderate Democrat whose Catholic faith and moral convictions guide his actions as a politician. Kaine’s long career in politics—he hasn’t had a real job since law school—shows that he is an anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-American Leftist straight from Central Casting.
Kaine says the “turning point” in his life was a trip to Honduras. While there, he saw lots of poor people, which made him feel bad, and he ran into a Communist priest, the Rev. James Carney. The New York Times, of course, says Father Carney “acting as a chaplain to a group of rebel fighters” was killed under “murky circumstances,” code for trying to overthrow the government of an American ally, which made Kaine “question” U.S. policy in the region.
That policy: trying stop the Soviet Union, which was establishing a beachhead in Central America via the Sandinista communist regime in Nicaragua. [In Honduras, a Spiritual and Political Awakening for Tim Kaine, By Jason Horowitz, NY Times, September 2, 2016]
Sixty-five years ago, the late, lamented Senator Joe McCarthy would have had Kaine under klieg lights. But at least Catholic Vote has published a devastating memo [PDF] on Kaine that demonstrates how far out to the left this man is.
In Honduras, Kaine “openly embraced” Liberation Theology, a heretical adulteration of Catholic social and economic teaching that, far from being some sort of reform movement, was the product of the Soviet Union’s disinformation and propaganda campaigns to undermine the West. It’s the communist take on Catholicism. No Catholic is permitted to believe or advocate it. Kaine does.
Writing for the American Spectator, Scott McKay explained Kaine’s career, post Honduras and Harvard Law:
And to what use did he put that expensive, exclusive education to work?McKay’s indictment also notes Kaine’s “shameless invocation of race and identity politics.” Like most white Democrats, Kaine is expert at virtue-signaling—for example, to black preachers at their convention in Richmond, Va. “[H]e waxed rhapsodic,” McKay wrote, “about his choice to attend a mostly-black church in Richmond. ‘I’ve never been treated badly in life because of my skin color or my gender,’ he said. ‘I think the burden is on those of us who are in the majority—Caucasians. We have to put ourselves in a place where we are the minority.’” [Emphasis added]
Why, suing landlords for racial discrimination, of course.
Kaine practiced “fair housing” law and taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Richmond for 17 years before finally getting into politics as a city councilman in Richmond in 1994. By 1998 he’d managed to get himself appointed mayor of that city, a largely ceremonial position elected by the city council members; Richmond is actually run by a city manager. Kaine took credit for the latter’s success and then ran for Lieutenant Governor, Governor and Senator.
He’s never owned a business, and he’s never signed the front of a check. Little wonder he’s got a lifetime 4 percent score from the Club For Growth.
The Kaine Scrutiny: A Special Report, October 7, 2016
Kaine is the opposite of his church’s teaching on the “social” issues. He favors abortion and homosexual “marriage.” Indeed, Kaine received a perfect 100 rating from Planned Parenthood, which murders more than 350,000 unborn children annually and collects a half-billion dollars from taxpayers to murder them.
“Kaine will protect access to legal, safe abortion,” PP brags, and “wants to expand birth control access” and “supports access to comprehensive sex education.” [Planned Parenthood Website]
One couldn’t think of a more comprehensive list of canonical felonies to use in a case for excommunication—but alas, the American bishops are weak prosecutors. Kaine’s bishop refuses to condemn the renegade by name.
Kaine also says he opposes the death penalty, as he says the Catholic Church does, and that permitting Virginia to execute murderers was difficult for him because he is “devout” and “follow[s] the teachings of my church in my own personal life.” [On Death Penalty Cases, Tim Kaine Revealed Inner Conflict, By Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Thomas Kaplan, July 23, 2016]
Problem is, the Church is not against the death penalty. That’s a completely erroneous if common belief. [Capital Punishment - The Pope's Position, EWTN.com]
But unsurprisingly, Kaine’s pastor at the black Catholic church he attends cites Kaine’s opposition to the death penalty as good street cred for a Catholicism. [ Tim Kaine's Pastor Describes The Veep Pick's Life As A Devout Catholic , NPR, July 22, 2016] It would be—in majority black Richmond.
Of course, Kaine has the support of many American bishops with his suicidal, anti-American and frankly anti-Catholic position on immigration—a subject about which the bishops have repeatedly lied to the faithful. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops website actually acknowledges:
[N]o country is bound to accept all those who wish to resettle there. By this principle the Church recognizes that most immigration is ultimately not something to celebrate. Ordinarily, people do not leave the security of their own land and culture just to seek adventure in a new place or merely to enhance their standard of living. Instead, they migrate because they are desperate and the opportunity for a safe and secure life does not exist in their own land…no country has the duty to receive so many immigrants that its social and economic life are jeopardized.For this reason, Catholics should not view the work of the federal government and its immigration control as negative or evil.
But the bishops don’t say this on television, where Hispanics who sit in the pews might hear it.
So Kaine is in violation of the bishops’ official, if largely unknown, position. And this immigration enthusiasm is a pattern. As governor of Virginia, he stopped the state police from helping federal immigration gumshoes collar illegal-alien criminals. And he had no problem with the gradual imposition of Islamic hegemony as more Muslims invade the Old Dominion. Indeed, he’s ready to celebrate the mass importation of more jihadists, which is what his Open Borders lady boss plans. [Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton wants to let 500 percent more Syrians into the U.S. By C. Eugene Emery Jr., PolitiFact, June 13th, 2016.]
Kaine helped radical Muslims penetrate Virginia’s Democratic Party. To a state immigration panel in 2007, he appointed Esam Omeish, an anti-Israel member of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA—known as a “turnstile for terrorists” because its congregants included three 9/11 hijackers; Nidal Hasan, the Muslim who murdered 13 at Fort Hood; and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the notorious “Underwear Bomber”
After video surfaced of Omeish ranting about Israel, he was forced to “resign,” but in 2009 he turned up as the Democratic choice for House of Delegates in the 35th district. Kaine was governor until 2010 and did nothing to stop the bearded fanatic from representing his party.
During his debate with Mike Pence, Kaine claimed that not permitting the mass importation of Mohammedans “is completely antithetical to the Jeffersonian values.” Indeed, Clinton and Kaine apparently think Muslims have a right to emigrate to the United States.
Jefferson himself did not agree:
"[Is] rapid population [growth] by as great importations of foreigners as possible... founded in good policy?... They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. These principles, with their language, they will transmit to their children. In proportion to their number, they will share with us the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its direction, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass... If they come of themselves, they are entitled to all the rights of citizenship: but I doubt the expediency of inviting them by extraordinary encouragements."
—Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.VIII, 1782. ME 2:118
"Although as to other foreigners it is thought better to discourage their settling together in large masses, wherein, as in our German settlements, they preserve for a long time their own languages, habits, and principles of government, and that they should distribute themselves sparsely among the natives for quicker amalgamation, yet English emigrants are without this inconvenience. They differ from us little but in their principles of government, and most of those (merchants excepted) who come here, are sufficiently disposed to adopt ours."
—Thomas Jefferson to George Flower, 1817. ME 15:140
In contrast, Kaine and Clinton are “Lennonists” on immigration: They imagine there are no countries. That means they imagine there’s no America. They certainly imagine there’s no white America. That’s what Teddy Kennedy imagined back in 1965 when his immigration bill began the war against the Historic American Nation.
The right President could stop all this. But the changes Clinton and Kaine could bring about via an Amnesty/ Immigration Surge—after 16 years of Bush-Obama immigration treason—could well be irreparable. A Clinton-Kaine victory could be fatal to patriot opposition to the radical Left. Largely because of immigration, conservatives will lose forever on every issue that matters, and Leftists aren’t going to throw them a bone once in awhile anymore.
The borders will stay open permanently. As more and more Mexicans, Africans and other Third-World illiterates pour in, the Democrat voting bloc will become insuperable, and any semblance of limited government will be lost because any attempt to limit spending will fail.
Any attempt to stop abortion will fail, as will any attempt stop the continued attack on Christians who oppose organized sodomy, say, by refusing to participate in homosexual nuptials .[Oregon judge fines Christian bakers $135,000 for refusing to bake a gay ‘wedding’ cake, by Ben Johnson, LifeSite, April 27, 2015] And the war against whites will worsen.
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine might be the most dangerous national candidates ever.
On the one hand, we have an school-marmish Methodist suffragette—“a museum-quality specimen of a Yankee—self-righteous, ruthless, self-aggrandizing,” as historian Clyde Wilson has written—who thinks women have a right to murder their children at parturition and that countries don’t need borders. And she hints at the legal persecution of Christians if they don’t adopt the Left’s demonic ideology.
On the other, we have a fake Catholic eagerly serving as her beard.
God help America.
