Suppression of Immigration At Republican Convention Worse than I Thought.

In my last VDARE piece about how the immigration issue completely disappeared at the Republican Convention, I somehow missed this incident where some young Republicans were told by the Secret Service at the behest of the Control Room told them to take down a "Build a Fence" sign. Below is a video of them explaining the story, as well as the fact that signs like "Viva McCain" were fine.

Frankly this is actually a bit encouraging. What I found disheartening was not so much that McCain didn`t talk about immigration—that was to be expected,— but that the grassroots of the Party seemed to stop caring. It`s better for them to be silenced, than silence themselves; and it seems like these young men have learned a valuable lesson about the Republican establishment.

It is also worth noting that McCain`s platform calls for "Setting clear guidelines and objectives for securing the border through physical and virtual barriers," and campaigned claiming how important it would be to build a fence.
