Victor Davis Hanson reminds us of the importance of the rule of law. “Sanctuary cities have been terrible for the American worker. It is elite versus the mass. The Democratic and La Raza elite want an unassimilated constituency that is replenished every year that ensures the demographics change, and that they can be spokesmen for group grievances rather than individual accomplishment. Employers want access to cheap labor, and then they dress it all up with utopian caring. In fact, it is one of the most amoral, uncaring phenomenon in the world! It is bad for the American poor. It destroys the rule of law. Who is to say when you start destroying the sanctity of the law that you can pick and choose which other laws people have to follow?”
If Americans do not believe they are better than the alternative, nobody else will either! For immigration to work in this country, it traditionally had to be legal! It had to be a melting pot, with assimilation, integration, and intermarriage.
To Eric Holder, the law was secondary. He politicized the Justice Department in favor of those he decided were oppressed. Obama tried to influence the Trayvon Martin jury by saying “Trayvon looks like the son I never had.” The Left got everything they wanted: the House, the Senate, and a president very skilled in teleprompted rhetoric.
Can we be brave and be triumphant? Point out the hypocrisy! Obama says we have to watch out for CEOs, but he doesn't think that applies to him! Al Gore sells his failed cable news station to an anti-Semitic Middle Eastern authoritarian government that enriches him because of profits from fossil fuels, and, he does so in haste to beat capital gains tax increases!
Hanson finishes this July 2016 program by pointing out that the Republican party now is populist, and the Democrat Party is the coastal blue blood elitists! How prescient can he be?
