… is more government surveillance, says Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Why? Because the country is crawling with people like Wade Michael Page:
Perhaps it’s finally time for Napolitano to take this problem seriously and rebuild and strengthen Homeland Security’s intelligence capabilities to face a clearly mounting threat. That might not have prevented the tragedy in Milwaukee, but it could very well save the lives of untold numbers of other Americans targeted by the racist right.
And just who is the “racist right” Potok fears so much? It’s any person or group that opposes open borders.
The SPLC website makes that very clear. Here’s a recent example: In response to two radio personalities who defended the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the SPLC blog counters with this damning indictment:
FAIR’s “suggested reading” on immigration, which includes white nationalist Peter Brimelow’s Alien Nation, a book whose central thesis is that America should remain a country dominated by whites.
FAIR also recommends Pat Buchanan’s State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America, which argues that America’s shift away from being white-dominated is “one of the greatest tragedies in human history.”
So yes, John and Ken, FAIR is a hate group. Not because it promulgates “facts” and “truths” its opponents would rather ignore but because it promotes hatred of immigrants, especially non-white ones.
By defending racism, encouraging xenophobia and nativism, and giving its all to efforts to keep America white, FAIR has more than earned its place in the pantheon of hate groups.
So. Wanting to preserve one’s civilization is “hate.” Demanding that the government enforce existing immigration laws is “racist.” And if you don’t embrace open borders and the inevitable demographic upheaval that would follow, you suffer from “xenophobia,” an irrational fear of foreigners.
In other words, the SPLC seeks to demonize and silence any opposition to the open borders agenda backed by big business and big government, and opposed by the majority of the people. Despite the constant and heavy-handed propaganda from the government and its supporters in the media, 78 percent of Americans want to defend their country from illegal immigrants. Like the vast majority of people in Mexico, Israel, or any other country, Americans want to preserve their traditional identity and defend their way of life from invaders who would radically transform their country. That’s patriotism. It’s part of being human. Free debate, the right to dissent, and the right to privacy are essential to republican government.
And that’s what hired guns like Potok want to supress.
