Radio Derb is on the air.  To get the podcast, follow the instructions at Taki’s Magazine.   The transcript will be archived on my own website Tuesday morning.

This week’s podcast ponders the prospect of President Obama’s proposed amnesty.

The first thing to remember here is that this is another amnesty. We already had one: the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, known to its friends as IRCA.

As I keep telling you, political correctness is a war against noticing things and remembering things. You can only be PC if you don’t notice, and don’t remember. Well, IRCA is one thing people should remember when the subject of amnesty comes up.

For one thing, remembering it squashes the notion that amnesty is some brave new idea that we never tried before. For another, IRCA was a big encouragement to the great wave of illegals coming in during the 1990s and 2000s. For yet another, it triggered a baby boom among Hispanic immigrants. And for yet another, it led to massive fraud among the applicants for amnesty. Nobody knows how many of those amnestied truly met the conditions for amnesty, but it surely wasn’t all of them, or even close to all.

The full Radio Derb playbill:
  • One of Eric Holder’s people.  (Government by race-obsessed Ivy League mulattos.)
  • Amnesty War correlation of forces.  (Fool us twice …)
  • Immigration unkillables.  (Talking points for patriots.)
  • Landing on a comet.  (Another white male triumph.)
  • The war against the normal.  (Our lost freedom of association.)
  • Another gentle giant.  (He was turning his life around, etc., etc.)
  • Kardashian commentary.  (Getting to the bottom of the story.)
  • Smoke and mirrors.  (Society heads in two opposite directions simultaneously.)
  • Passed over for glory.  (Can’t get no respect.)
  • Be of good cheer.  (The Wall came down.)
  • The too-friendly skies.  (A freak of nature.)
