Beating me to the punch, FrontPageMag.com has an excellent account Thought Gestapo in Action at Rollins College by Rich Trzupek April 7th 2011 of the outrageous efforts by the faculty of Rollins College to harass a freshman, Jamie Pizzi, for writing on op-ed in the student newspaper opposing birthright citizenship:
Some members of the academic establishment at Rollins College were outraged that Ms. Pizzi would dare harbor such “extreme” views, much less commit them to writing. Worse, in the opinion of the intelligentsia, was the fact that The (Sandspur) actually published such “inflammatory” opinions. For example, Rollins faculty member Kathryn Norsworthy sent mass e-mails around the school denouncing Pizzi`s piece… Faculty members Denise Cummings, Ted Gournelos and Lisa Tillmann put their signatures to an open letter that was sent around campus, in which the trio compared Pizzi`s viewpoint to Nazi propaganda
The article in question Illegal Babies Should be Illegal Citizens The Sandspur Jamie Pizzi 3/17/11 is in fact perfectly sound and fluently written.
How would you feel if a stranger broke into your home, began to eat your food, wear your clothes and watch your television? I am assuming you would not be the slightest bit welcoming to this intruder. Your home and all its contents were purchased with the finances you strenuously worked to obtain.
Under the 14th Amendment, birthright citizenship allows a pregnant foreigner to waltz right over our borders, have a baby, and the baby receives the benefits of being an American citizen. These benefits, of course, are footed by our tax dollars- not the dollars of their primarily non-tax-paying parents. These “anchor babies,” as they are commonly referred, gain full citizenship from simply being born on American soil, and they are entitled to all the same benefits as you and I, including: free public school educations, financial aid for college and even Medicaid.
FrontPageMag goes on to report on the ferocious Left MSM response:
College Media Matters gave prominent play to Pizzi critics who accused her of being a Nazi, supporting genocide and promoting an atmosphere of hate and intolerance. Media Matters Simon Maloy went after the freshman as well…
Maloy slammed Pizzi for “her poorly articulated nativism” declared that the anchor babies are a myth and dismissed the very idea that liberal academia might attempt to stifle opinions it doesn`t like instead of fairly debating the issues of the day.
The reason for this otherwise incredible violence is simple. The Left expects to conquer America through immigration. The Anchor Baby mechanism is essential. They know it is questionable law and as a policy it is so ludicrous as to be likely to infuriate most Americans if they ever learn about it.
