Some in the blogosphere are apparently dismayed at the speed with which the Bush Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration Bill is being rushed through the Senate. They shouldn't be. After all, the other side said at the outset that they were willing to pay top dollar to get it into law.
Not that there are not some compensations. For instance, this afternoon we learn President Bush does not care about the position of English in this country: Bush opposes English as national language: Gonzales Reuters May 19 2006. (That should not be a surprise either. He has long made it clear he is indifferent to the United States being American.)
But experienced observers can see the signs that the Treason forces are experiencing difficulties, and expecting more. They have wheeled out their ultimate weapon: the accusation of Racism. Time magazine has obediently carried a long essay telling Americans that if they refuse to allow their homeland to become a Spanish speaking Third world slum, they are guilty of this Mortal Sin. [Is Racism Fueling the Immigration Debate? by Massimo Calabres May 19, 2006]. And Senator Harry Reid of Nevada actually accused other Senators of it yesterday, another example of Reid's statesmanship on this question. [Reid calls language proposal racist , by Charles Hurt The Washington Times May 19 2006.]
There is a sense in which current immigration policy is Adolf Hitler's posthumous revenge on America. The U.S. political elite emerged from the war passionately concerned to cleanse itself from all taints of racism or xenophobia. Eventually, it enacted the epochal Immigration Act of 1965. And this, quite accidentally, triggered a renewed mass immigration, so huge and so systematically different from anything that had gone before as to transform— and ultimately, perhaps, even to destroy— the one unquestioned victor of World War II: the American nation, as it had evolved by the middle of the twentieth century.
Today, the U.S. government is literally dissolving the American people and electing a new one.
Being unable to discuss dangerous facts about public policy because of this moronic chant of racism is a prohibition which simply has to be rejected. But by using it to ram through a policy that many normally apolitical people resent and detest, the Treason Lobby brings closer the day when it will be rejected, and become ineffectual. That will be a true victory for America.
