The left, be they dimwitted Democrats or pining progressives, loonie liberals, or even the “peaceful” head smashers of Antifa, often say some off the wall things. However, when a fellow conservative starts to clean house, it is time to bolt down the furniture because, as the Daily Caller shows today, things are going to shake!
Saying with biting humor that it would be better to deport lazy Americans than illegal aliens, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens writes, “The United States has too many people who don’t work hard, don’t believe in God, don’t contribute much to society and don’t appreciate the greatness of the American system.”
He laments that this is the case of families who were born here and have been for generations, a fact that is factual, yet painful to hear.
He shows that Americans, sadly, are more likely to have illegitimate children, have more teen delinquent cases (even though U.S. citizens have fewer kids), and are prone to be “locked up, less educated, less religious, and less entrepreneurial.”
Using the dagger of scorching satirical truth, Stephens writes, “Bottom line: So-called real Americans are screwing up America.”
He goes on to write, “Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones: newcomers who are more appreciative of what the United States has to offer, more ambitious for themselves and their children, and more willing to sacrifice for the future.”
This anti-Trump conservative has a few points, but his open borders logic would still get us just as endangered if applied as if a Democrat had opined it.
“O.K., so I’m jesting about deporting ‘real Americans’ en masse. (Who would take them in, anyway?) But then the threat of mass deportations has been no joke with this administration,” pens Stephens. He attacks the President for simply trying to save our economy by shutting the doors.
The second problem with his screed is that some feel this article which he has written is hurtful to blacks who suffer from the ills listed on his list more than most of the rest of America. This only worsens his problems.
Closing his self-absorbed banter, he writes, “Because I’m the child of immigrants and grew up abroad, I have always thought of the United States as a country that belongs first to its newcomers — the people who strain hardest to become a part of it because they realize that it’s precious; and who do the most to remake it so that our ideas, and our appeal, may stay fresh.”
He closes with, “That used to be a cliché, but in the Age of Trump it needs to be explained all over again. We’re a country of immigrants — by and for them, too. Americans who don’t get it should get out.”
What is most amusing is that President Trump has no qualms with allowing people into America legally at all. He just wants them to apply legally.
For some reason, even self-proclaimed conservatives can be blind to this simple, easy to understand the fact.
