I’ve been thinking how interesting it is that the Democrats have decided to abandon their political allegiance to the African-American community in favor of a pact with Illegal Immigrants who they see as a potential path out of their current electoral doom. They can’t win in Today’s America, so they will create Tomorrow’s America by importing votes from Mexico and Venezuela. This makes sense for the Democrats because these are voters who are already inclined to side with a socialist point of view. If Democrats can’t create the Welfare State they want here, they will import it.
So the Dems have decided to turn their backs on the cornerstone of their Liberal Coalition — American blacks who came to America by force against their will, yet became legal immigrants; instead they cast their hopes on illegal immigrants who are breaking our laws by choice.
This says a lot about the modern Democrat Party, doesn’t it? But at least they are consistent. Today’s Democrat party leaders are more likely to side with bin Laden and Saddam against their country’s President; they are more likely to find themselves siding with lawbreakers than law abiders; they are more likely to side with the courts than with the American people. So why not side with illegal immigrants versus their own African-American core base who no longer represent the growing demographics of America?
Dan at NoSpeedBumps has a similar view as PatriotPartner of this new Democrat Party Grand Alliance with Illegals: A Betrayal of the American Working Class.
On one hand, the gut response of most Democrats is to welcome Hispanic illegal workers, as Hispanic advocacy groups demand, and resist substantial new measures to stem the flow of illegal people crossing the southern border. But this directly conflicts with the interests of the core group whom Democrats have historically tried to loyally represent: The American working class. On the immigration issue, Democrats have turned their backs on their core constituency. This is the ultimate triumph of politically correct thinking, where the group declared the bigger victim always wins out in policy disputes.
For years now, Democrats should have been stridently demanding a shutdown of illegal immigration over the southern border, but they have simply been silent on this. Similarly, when employers easily hire illegal workers at bargain wages with little worries of being arrested – to the detriment of American workers – again the Democrats have been silent.
Read the whole thing! Of course the only problem with Dan’s correct analysis is that the Republican Party has sold out the middle class too unless the reject the language of amnesty and start embracing the ideals of legal immigration and secure borders.
