I had no idea the New York Times could be so funny:

"But some Democrats said Friday that the bill set immigrant groups against one another by deepening demographic divides."

[House Votes to Ease Visa Limits for Some Foreign Workers, November 30, 2012]

Poor things! Nothing could be more abhorrent to the Left than the exploitation of demographic divides! What horror to think that Reaction would so attempt to sunder the brotherhood of mankind...

In a state of perfect assimilation, there is no reason, in principle, why immigrants as a group would have a different perception of the country's national interest than of the native-born. The objective good of the country is what it is.

Of course, it is universally understood that they do tend to perceive the national interest as being conveniently coterminous with getting Cousin José from Guadalajara a green card. The NYT article's implied link between open-borders positions and the Hispanic vote assumes as much.

So how come nobody in the MSM ever points out that this is, in and if itself, demonstrative of divided loyalty, in effect if not necessarily intent? And that appealing to the Hispanic Vote as such is thus the height of divisiveness?

I'm afraid we know the answer: who-whom.

The sad part is that the GOP Establishment actually feels bad when accused of race-consciousness by the folks dancing on the grave of white America.

What a bunch of suckers.
