Here’s another TOTALLY objective piece from the oh-so-politically correct Charlotte Observer on the Latinization of the South:
Roughly 1,000 Latinos and immigrants packed into a church near uptown on Wednesday to hear from the Illinois congressman one supporter calls “Moses of the Latinos.”
People clapped and cheered as U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez entered the church.
Later, a chant arose: “Si se puede. Si se puede. Yes we can. Yes we can.”
“Yes, we can” what? Assimilate to the majority culture? I don’t think so.
And what TOTALLY objective article on Latino colonization would be complete without a few inappropriate religious references? This story has ‘em!
Maudia Melendez, who heads Charlotte’s Jesus Ministry, said Gutierrez is the face of immigration reform.
“I call him the Moses of the Latinos because, as you see, he goes to the government continuously to ask, ‘Let my people go. Let the people stop suffering.’”
Wait a minute! Moses? Didn’t he struggle to free the Jews from slavery in Egypt so they could return to their own nation? So why — oh, never mind.
Gutierrez doesn’t even attempt to disguise his ethnic bias. He once told Newsweek, “I have only one loyalty, and that’s to the immigrant community.” So much for his duty to the majority of Americans, his constituents, or the Constitution. He recognizes that Congress isn’t about to pass amnesty, but this revealing and frightening passage makes clear what Gutierrez and others see as their best chance to achieve their goals:
He said at the chamber reception he’s urging Obama to use his authority to act independently and stop deportations of some groups of illegal immigrants, including undocumented students and the parents of children who are U.S. citizens.
“When the president of the United States decided there was possibly going to be an act of genocide in Libya, he bombed Gadhafi’s forces,” he said. “He didn’t call anyone in Charlotte or Chicago. He didn’t call the Congress of the United States. … He used his discretion.”
In other words, Obama can just refuse to enforce existing immigration law, or even grant American citizenship to illegal aliens with the stroke of a pen. Gutierrez has a point: If the president of the United States can openly defy Congress and ignore the Constitution by declaring war, what’s to stop him from bypassing other Constitutional limitations? One thing the pro-war, any war crowd never quite grasped is that when the president illegally usurps power to provide them with entertaining wars, the path is cleared for even more unconstrained power, to be used in ways they hadn’t contemplated.
We may recover from illegal and counter-productive wars. But forced demographic revolution will permanently change this country.
