John Rocker: Rubio Is "The Man Who Will Merge The DNC With The GOP"
Readers may remember baseball pitcher John Rocker from a 1999 controversy in which he was ordered to undergo psychiatric testing after making un-PC remarks in an interview. He eventually retired from baseball, went into real estate, published an autobiography, and now he has a column in WorldNetDaily! In which column, in his un-PC way, he is warning of "treason from within."
Exclusive: John Rocker warns of 'treason from within' if GOP OK's immigration deal,
WorldNetDaily, February 11, 2013
America is not a “policy” – and while we are a nation founded on a set of ideals, a nation we must remain in some real sense of the word.
America has to make sense, it has to have a unifying theme, and it has to have a population that can handle the responsibilities that accompany living in a “free” nation.
Which brings us to the debate over President Obama’s attempt to implement amnesty for who-knows-how-many illegal aliens in America.
Why do some supposed conservatives support amnesty?
Maybe Marco Rubio thinks it will help him break the vaunted 40 percent mark with Hispanics and propel him to the Oval Office in 2016.
Perhaps John Boehner and the GOP elites want to push through the issue so they can worry about important things like media respectability and getting the best spray tan deal off Groupon.
While Beltway wonks, establishment hacks and political opportunists will cite every study to show how immigrants are the natural ally to conservatives, they’ll blatantly ignore the cold harsh reality set before them: If the polls are to be believed, young immigrants who have assimilated are even more likely than their parents to support big government, abortion and gay marriage.
So insofar as they assimilate, it’s into the culture of entitlement and cultural permissiveness promoted by the left and left-leaning institutions. Perhaps this is why Time magazine put Sen. Rubio on its cover and called him the “Savior of the GOP” – when in reality it should have said, “The Man who will merge the DNC with the GOP." [More]
