Welcome back to the favorite site of Independent Voters! This is Balladeer, America’s favorite loose cannon of the Culture Wars! Actually I’m far from famous but you have to admit the expression “America’s favorite loose cannon of the Culture Wars” really kicks ass! As always this is the only site on the web that criticizes both Liberals and Conservatives equally.
Following today’s Supreme Court decision on illegal immigration which, surprise, surprise, struck down part of the law being reviewed AND upheld part of the law being reviewed, both sides are claiming victory. Many of my readers are from overseas and they’ve been asking me about the political gibberish that Liberals and Conservatives spout about immigration laws here in the U.S.
For starters, ignore EVERYTHING either side says in which they pretend to be taking a principled stand. None of it matters and it’s all just a smokescreen to obscure the truth of the matter. That truth is that American Liberals and American Conservatives all have the bigoted assumption that illegal immigrants are overwhelmingly Hispanic and on top of that bigoted assumption lies another. That upper tier assumption is that illegal aliens would overwhelmingly vote Democratic if they were granted legal status en masse.
Since American Liberals are mindless footsoldiers of the Democratic Party and American Conservatives are mindless footsoldiers of the Republican Party that is why Liberal politicians (but not their constituents, whose opinion on this issue apparently means nothing to them) favor ANY political subterfuge that grants legal status to the illegals OR simply ignores their illegal status and lets them have all the privileges of citizenship without any of the responsibilities that legal immigrants are saddled with. The only thing Liberals care about is all those people voting for candidates with a (D) after their names.
That’s also why Liberals vehemently oppose voters being required to show proof of citizenship in order to vote in our elections. American Liberals know that even without legal status plenty of illegal immigrants can vote for Democratic candidates under the current laws by just showing up at the polls and voting, so they pretend having to show proof of citizenship is (yawn) “racist intimidation” even though ALL voters, not just ones who seem “Hispanic”, would be required to show proof of citizenship.
American Conservatives like to pretend they oppose illegal immigration out of respect for “the rule of law” and over (yawn) “national security concerns”. Don’t believe them. What they are REALLY concerned about is having literally millions of new citizens potentially voting for their political opponents (under the bigoted assumption – shared by both Liberals AND Conservatives – that American Hispanics all have ties to or sympathies toward illegal immigrants).
If the assumption was that illegal immigrants would vote Republican then you can bet American Conservatives would be the ones favoring either “instant” citizenship or favoring just allowing who knows how many illegals to continue voting by refusing to institute proof of citizenship requirements in order to vote. American Liberals would then be the ones adamantly opposing blanket citizenship for all illegals to prevent millions of new Republican voters.
Ignore all the sickeningly self-righteous platitudes from both Liberals and Conservatives on this issue. You now know the only thing that matters about the whole question of illegal immigration and the fundamentally bigoted assumptions that both parties use as a basis for their respective policies.
