In that case, I nominate the New York Times staff to go first!
After a statement like theirs, its hard not to consider them a terrorist organization.
I say we see the possibilities here, and agree with the NYT.
Let’s begin with deporting NYT lock, stock and barrel.
Next, we deport Hollywood.
Then, let’s finish the job, by deporting ALL American LIBERALS, COMMUNISTS, RINOS, DEMOCRATS and SOCIALISTS.
Finally, after all that is done, seal the borders and ports.
After that America will be great again — by default.
Okay … of course I am just kidding, this would all be far to cruel. However, this is an example of how the left sounds these days…except they don’t want to get rid of liberals, communists, and socialists. They want to get rid of freedom. So…uh, worse.
America belongs to immigrants because immigrants make the nation more powerful, says a former Wall Street Journal writer who is now working for the New York Times.
Immigrants produce more babies, work harder, create more jobs, and have more ideas, claims the revealing column by immigration-advocate Bret Stephens:
I speak of Americans whose families have been in this country for a few generations. Complacent, entitled and often shockingly ignorant on basic points of American law and history, they are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects risk drowning…
Bottom line: So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones: newcomers who are more appreciative of what the United States has to offer, more ambitious for themselves and their children, and more willing to sacrifice for the future. In other words, just the kind of people we used to be — when “we” had just come off the boat…
I’m the child of immigrants and grew up abroad, I have always thought of the United States as a country that belongs first to its newcomers — the people who strain hardest to become a part of it because they realize that it’s precious; and who do the most to remake it so that our ideas, and our appeal, may stay fresh.
That used to be a cliché, but in the Age of [President Donald] Trump it needs to be explained all over again. We’re a country of immigrants — by and for them, too. Americans who don’t get it should get out.
That view is shared by former President Barack Obama, who told supporters in November 2014 that:
Sometimes we get attached to our particular tribe, our particular race, our particular religion, and then we start treating other folks differently. And that, sometimes, has been a bottleneck to how we think about immigration. If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave, there have been periods where the folks who were already here suddenly say, ‘Well, I don’t want those folks’ — even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.
That government-first view allows Stephens to ignore the Declaration of Independence which declared that people’s rights came from a higher source than government: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This article of his…Just another hit piece. No American citizen is against immigration. They (MSM) continually push this narrative that were racist if we don’t accept all the illegals in this country and oppose open borders. All we want is sincere, effective vetting and for people to come here legally. Get in line.
