Overloading America—Obama’s Demographic Cloward-Piven Strategy

One of the reasons for Dave Brat’s epochal upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was Cantor’s blatant attempt to smuggle past Republicans some version of a DREAM Act Amnesty—unfortunately for him, right at the time when a new Children’s Crusade has begun. This time the Holy Land that is being targeted is the American Southwest. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are pouring across the undefended American border, resulting what has been called a “humanitarian crisis that is a direct consequence of Obama’s lawlessness” by no less than Senator Ted Cruz—or, by ordinary Americans “an invasion.” [Border Children Reportedly Sickened by Food in US Facilities, Throwing in Trash, by Kristin Tate, Breitbart, June 10, 2014]

But this isn’t an accidental crisis—it’s federal government policy. The Obama Regime is overloading the immigration control system in order to force Amnesty as a fait accompli.

What is happening is a demographic version of the Cloward-Piven strategy. Proposed in 1966 by Leftist sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, and heavily cited by conspiratorial conservatives in the early Tea Party days, the strategy called for creating as many enrollees in welfare as possible, thus destroying local and state welfare agencies, precipitating a crisis, and forcing the federal government to step it and create a national minimum income.

Of course, even decided non-Communists like Richard Nixon favored a national minimum income. Non-communist (but nationalist) Cyprus has even set up a “Citizens Dividend.” But the demographic variant of this plan would have far worse and irreversible consequences than any mere economic policy.

Because of President Obama’s promotion of the so-called DREAM Act, the word has spread in Central America that children will not be deported if they make it across the American border. [EDITORIAL: Children’s surge of illegal aliens is overwhelming the southwest border, Washington Times, June 9, 2014] It recently emerged that President Obama’s Chicago consigliere Valerie Jarrett once gushed that professional minorities who advocate for Amnesty for illegals are the “best that we have.” [White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett Met ‘Four or Five Times’ with Illegal Immigrant Activist Group, by Patrick Howley, Washington Time, June 10, 2014]

From Jarrett’s perspective, she’s right. The newest additions to America’s vibrant cultural mosaic are already shrieking that the government—meaning the American taxpayer—is not giving them sufficient food, housing, and medical care as a reward for invading the country.

They are already the perfect Obama supporters—and there’s plenty more where they came from.

The border-breaching bambinos are creating a new dependent class, but they have two other predictable side effects:

  • An especially diverse mix of exciting multicultural diseases, that are already plaguing shelters and spreading to Border Control agents—and that’s just among the illegal who are actually processed.
  • a chaotic and violent environment as Border Agents scramble to deal with a huge, resentful population. The system is also scrambling to provide food and other necessities for America’s new dependents.

Despite the fact that the MSM overwhelmingly reports the infiltrators as “children,” many are teenagers who may have criminal backgrounds and are engaging in sexual activity in the midst of the refugee shelters. [Influx of Illegal Alien Minors a Disaster, Overcrowded Shelters, Diseases, Sexually Active Teens, Judicial Watch, June 9, 2014] The disease-ridden, unwieldy centers provide a perfect opportunity to generate a never ending supply of media sob stories, activist campaigns from social justice crusaders and professional minorities, and lawsuits.

We know this is deliberate because President Obama and his murderous anti-white Attorney General Eric “My People” Holder announced a new program to fund attorneys to represent these illegal alien “children” in the immigration courts, thus ensuring they will at least get Amnesty, if not taxpayer-funded rewards for their experiences. [DOJ ‘Protecting the Rights’ of Child Illegals, While Empowering ‘New Generations of Aspiring Attorneys, by Penny Starr, CNSNews, June 9, 2014]

The sob stories are already on Buzzfeed (Exclusive: Immigrant Minors Alleged Mistreatment By U.S. Border Officials,By Jessica Garrison, June 9, 2014) and receiving links from Huffington Post. So get ready for a new hashtag (#JusticeForChildren perhaps?) and pictures of depraved -looking Leftist graduate students holding hand-written signs being posted on Tumblr.

That said, President Obama doesn’t deserve all the blame. The Republican leadership is complicit in this—each new Anchor Baby is a walking weapon against the hated American worker.

But what is clear is that what people are calling a “fiasco” and “humanitarian crisis” is working exactly as it is intended—it is supposed to break the immigration system.

Obama’s government has money to send stealth bombers to screw around in Ukraine, transform U.S. military bases into refugee centers for unlimited numbers of illegals, and make sure everyone south of the Rio Grande gets free food, health care, shelter, and lawyers. But the Regime claims it can’t secure the border—and it is unable to provide basic care through the VA to American veterans.

It’s worse than post-America. It’s anti-America. And it’s no accident, but destruction by design.
