Blacklisted by the Las Vegas Review Journal

I saw the headline, perused the article and chimed in – so I thought.  Lately, its been extremely difficult to post comments online when the subject is illegal immigration. Yahoo has always censored my comments, as has NPR (matter of fact, they banned me), and the various, usual suspects. Personally, my comments are tame compared to what I see on the threads. Then again, I suppose the La Raza call center staff around the country are quite busy flagging commentary that goes against their agenda. Seemingly, liberal so-called news organizations are afraid to allow freedom of speech, and are worried about offending a community steeped in corruption and lawlessness. I’ve copied the article and included a link. There you can read the comments left by others.

Take a look, and as always, I will ask you to decide.

Reid, Democrats reintroduce DREAM Act

By Steve Tetreault
STEPHENS WASHINGTON BUREAU

Posted: May 11, 2011 | 10:11 a.m.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats on Wednesday reintroduced the DREAM Act, a bill that would set a path to citizenship for people who were brought into the country illegally as youngsters if they join the military or complete two years of college.

The legislation faces a tough course to passage. Republicans blocked a similar bill in the Senate in December after charging it amounted to “amnesty.”

Sen. Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader from Nevada, said he did not know when the new version might be brought up for votes.

But he said he would be looking to persuade a handful of GOP senators to drop their opposition, and he was not going to “draw any lines in the sand.”

The DREAM Act was introduced by Reid and other Democratic leaders in the Senate. A companion bill was submitted later in the House. Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., said she planned to co-sponsor it.

The pro-immigration bill might become one of the issues dividing Berkley and Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., as they compete for the U.S. Senate in the 2012 election.

Berkley voted for the measure last year, and Heller — then a House member — voted against it.

Heller still has reservations about expanding immigration when he thinks more should be done to secure the U.S.-Mexico border against illegal entrants, spokesman Stewart Bybee said.

Whether the bill passes or not, the new effort enables Democrats to reassert their allegiance on an issue important to Hispanics, a key constituency they are seeking to re-energize for the 2012 elections.

Democrats reintroduced the bill a day after President Barack Obama was in Texas to rally support for immigration measures. Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Reid echoed a point made by Obama: The government has taken steps to strengthen the U.S. border with Mexico, so now it would be appropriate to address other immigration measures.

“Last summer we provided more than $600 million for border security, drones, fences, more border security,” Reid said. “Maybe there is more we can do, but we have done a lot.”

Heller, who took Senate office this week after being appointed to replace Sen. John Ensign, had another view.

“The fact remains that our government still does not enforce the laws that are currently on the books,” Bybee said. “As long as Border Patrol agents continue to risk their lives against drug smugglers, the argument that appropriate action has been taken to secure our borders is questionable.”

The DREAM Act would create a path to legal status and citizenship for people who entered the country before they were 16 years old, have been residents at least five years and are of “good moral character.”

Applicants, who would qualify up to age 30, would have to graduate from high school or obtain a GED diploma, and attend college for two years or serve in the military for at least two years.

The DREAM Act “makes economic sense,” Reid said. “Instead of kicking out people who are educated or who want to be educated and productive members of our society, we should let them work. Maybe they will found the next Google.”

The DREAM acronym stands for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors.

Democrats portray their effort as a matter of fairness because many of the beneficiaries were brought to the country as infants or youngsters and have grown up knowing nothing other than the United States.

“This is not an open door or a free ride,” said Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J. “We already have made enormous investments in public education for these students.”

Republicans generally have opposed the measure with critics arguing it would encourage more people to enter the country illegally.

The Senate in December voted 55-41 for the bill, but it fell short of the 60 necessary to break a Republican filibuster.

Five Democrats voted against the bill, but Reid shrugged off a question on how he planned to bring those senators into the fold.

“We ask Republicans of good will to work with us,” Reid said. “I am someone who maintains the faith.”

In the House, which was controlled by Democrats last year, the DREAM Act passed 216-198. Reid suggested one possible path to compromise this year on the measure. The measure could be attached to a Republican bill requiring employers to use the electronic E-Verify system to determine the eligibility of workers.

In the meantime, the Nevadan and 21 other Democrats signed a letter last month urging Obama to defer deportation of students who would otherwise qualify to stay in the country if the DREAM Act were to become law.

Obama administration officials have deferred action on students on a case-by-case basis, as the Bush administration did.

Do these people ever listen to us? The DREAM scam is back? I thought the American people said no to this?

My censored comment:

It is an incontrovertible truth that the civil institutions of our country have been seriously infiltrated by poltroons, and that they now stand in imminent peril as they pander to the interests to the rapid and enormous population explosion of those of Mexican birth, imbued with Mexican feelings, of arrogance, ignorance and immoral character, who receive, under present lax of law enforcement, our elective franchise and the rights of entitlement.

What can be said for those who would allow our homes to be broken into by criminals who demand they be fed, clothed, housed, and granted the rights of the firstborn?

The influx of illegal aliens, is dangerous to the repose of our country; especially if the overwhelming numbers bears any considerable proportion to the established native citizenry. Even if that native proportion objects, the tendency of the invasion is injurious; the invaders are not of the same ideas and feeling about our country. But they have become more vicious, relentless, vociferous and duplicitous.

Our represented lack of decision means a choice between two conditions. By continuing our present policy to codify, we choose that which is producing a plutocratic caste class of paralyzed nobodies relying upon the industrial slavery of a great mass of subversive and low standard of living toilers. By stopping illegal immigration, we influence the conditions that will give to US citizens, a decent and comfortable standard of living.

We will gain neither respect, gratitude, nor assimilation by making our homes Mexico’s doormat. Lawmakers, like men, must be reasonably selective about whom they adopt into the bosom of their family.

We cannot maintain our priceless heritage of individual liberty as outlined in the three classic cornerstones of our Republic; the Declaration of Independence, our Federal and State Constitutions, and our Bill of Rights, if we permit our already overflowing “melting pot,” to be inundated from Mexico; or if we break down those barriers which now permit us to screen out those who disregard, nor appreciate, the value of American institutions or the aims of our country.

We are witnessing one of the greatest tragedies in human history. The symptoms of declination are well-known to all who allow it: the attempted demise of sovereignty, the degeneration of morals, contempt for American values, destruction of the culture and language, and paralysis of the will.

There’s too much at stake now to be politically correct any longer. And there’s entirely far too much at stake to be concerned with offending those who blatantly ignore our wishes.

America, after all, is for Americans first. Coming to this country is not a right that belongs to anybody that can sneak in during the middle of the night, and people who believe they have the right to do so and care less what we think. 

It is a privilege we alone decide to confer.

Bill Clinton uttered countless deceptive words during his eight-year occupancy of the White House, but perhaps none captured the essence of his serpent-like dishonesty better than these: “It all depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”

For me, it “is” the current divisive anti-America hate rhetoric that this racist indoctrination teaches; the complicity of our politicians; the dumping of entire villages of illegal aliens
established in cities throughout this country who sympathize with the La Raza ideology and dream of turning America into an Mexican state; “is” increasingly becoming dangerous; “is” ultimately equally consequential as the subversive duplicitous effort to transform it through the nonstop onslaught, unnatural fraud-reproduction, and the relentless attempt for colonization; our treasonous leaders who, even after September 11, keep telling us that illegal aliens are all law-abiding and hard-working; are quick to scold us for the media-created anti-immigrant bigotry claims, and continue allowing tens of millions of illegal alien invaders to march into this country.

As far as Latinos and our politicians who hold their interests are concerned, Americans can go to hell. If either party does not do something about the illegal alien invasion, the illegal alien invasion will do something about all of us.

And Americans will eventually be forced to do something about both.

 

I waited to see if they would allow my commentary. I figured as much. Ticked, I decided to make one last attempt.

My second attempt:

I was certain you would control my participation, just as you have whenever I login to post my comments. Transparent mandibles of cowards are today’s pathetic gatekeepers who are disposed to suppress Americans who dissent to appease a community that insists we allow this deluge of illegal aliens or face the wrath of the illegitimate Hispanic vote.

It becomes irrelevant when being thrown over the side of a vessel taking on water. The RJs USA ranking for newspapers is 69, and the world ranking is akin to being lost at sea.

The ship’s officers-of-the-watch have been reduced to eternal adolescent seafarers of this vast lethargic dilapidated transnational rickety listing vessel –  it’s manifest harboring invasion and lawlessness guised as global compassion and multicultural pose –  is merely the modish gloss on a
cult of racial grandiose narcissism and delusion that those of us will heed your distress call.

You sit around in the bridge waxing eloquently about how Latinos are changing the demographics of this country and therefore, it is essential that if a political party wants to survive or politician want to survive, or we American citizens want to survive, we need to address
this ethnic group or that racial group. This is quintessential racism that is destructive of the civil society, and those who silence freedom of speech are complicit.

And we Americans, regardless of our race, regardless of our color, regardless of our heritage – we Americans – and by that I mean citizens and legal immigrants will eventually be forced to fight this. We have temporary politicians who are prepared to destroy the fundamental nature of this society, in order to achieve short-term  electoral victories.

They do it with propaganda. They do it with race baiting. They do it with appeals to emotion, passion and Univision.

And how do you guys explain your craven silence?

There is an full-scale attempt to assuage invasion, blatant dismissal of the American way of life, animosity, malice, enmity, and hatred by subversives who insist we move aside and make wholesale accommodations for their sole benefit just for the stupefying logic that millions of them are showing up.

Proponents of illegal immigration always use the excuse that illegal aliens come to this country to take jobs that Americans won’t do. This argument is a rationalization that completely ignores the true agenda and symptom.

The purposeful confusion on the issue of immigration by those who are expected to report the truth comes from using the words immigration adjacent to the word illegal immigration as if they are one in the same.

Whether you’re a recent immigrant, legal, or a long time American citizen, this will destroy American society. It is not humane, and it is not compassionate to destroy American society.

What can be said for those of you who would allow our homes to be broken into by criminals who demand they be fed, clothed, housed, and granted the rights of the firstborn?

If the so-called Hispanic vote flexes its muscles as they did in the last presidential election – nearly 7 million out of 180 million, perhaps they may want to get memberships and head to their local fitness clubs.

When reading your headlines, I always expect a bikini model, but never get anything but a guy in drag.
