You will find no people more concerned with inequality or social justice than those in the Green Party. When I have talked to them about immigration and ask for their reason why they want ever increasing amounts of immigration I am able to whittle their arguments down one by one.
Thanks to VDARE.com, I am well versed in the lack of economic, social or environmental arguments for more immigration. Eventually they arrive at the argument that the poverty of the people coming here is caused by the policies of the United States so we are obligated to let the world in.
These are college educated people. I graduated public high school. I am unable to get them to make the connection and ask “How does importing millions of poor, uneducated people hurt those responsible for USA foreign policy that is impoverishing foreign people? How does mass immigration not lower wages and displace and impoverish poor people already here, many for generations?”
I have often thought that immigration at its core is about profit, power and punishment. My liberal friends want to punish.
They do not care the Koch brothers, George Bush, Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove, along with Gov. Jerry Brown, Luis Gutierrez, and Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart and George Soros and Zuckerberg and Bill Gates and Sheldon Adelson all have the same immigration agenda.
They just want to punish America with mass immigration so they can wear a moral crown caring more for the “others’ while ignoring those poor here now. Which is funny. The haters are supposed to be Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Pat Buchanan and Jeff Sessions. Not themselves!
The real haters are the ones who refuse to ask themselves a simple question; to paraphrase something black abolitionist Frederick Douglass said about slavery “If endless unlimited mass immigration is so good for my country, why is it not good for all other countries?”
