We in the USA are having another one of our Political Food Fights by the “Children In Suits” we call politicians. These CIS want to prance around and have tantrums instead of making anything or making any organization actually work better. OK, I got that.
What I don’t get is the reason the Democratic Party of the USA has decided that championing criminal activity is a good thing.
Some anchors in verbiage
First, since they like to corrupt language, a few definitions:
Illegal: If the law says something is not allowed, to do it is illegal.
Criminal: A person who does something illegal.
Alien: A person not a citizen of a particular country they are visiting or living in. (My Mum was one for many years).
Illegal Alien: Could also accurately be stated as “criminal alien”. A person living in a country without the required legal paperwork. They are committing a crime and they are doing something illegal so in English you just compound the modifier with the noun. Just like “white male”.
(And yes, Virginia, a person can be illegal…)
Just as an aside, I have done illegal things often and I have been technically a criminal on many occasions. This is true of substantially everyone. I regularly drive 9 MPH over the speed limit. That is an illegal act. I’ve also consumed recreational drugs (mostly when in college for a couple of years) when Marijuana was illegal in California – that made me a “criminal element” in those days. So saying “illegal” or “criminal” does not necessarily mean hardened drug lord ax murdering child molester kidnapper. OK?
The Dims vs Dems
I’m prone to using the coined word “Dimocrat” for those Democrats who are most dim. That seems to be most of the Democratic Party Leadership, for starters, and then the folks like Antifa who do mayhem on demand. I am NOT disparaging ALL Democrats when I use that term. About 1/2 my family and friends are Democrats (or Bernie supporters) and we’re fine with that.
I’m a registered Independent who voted for Bernie in the primaries because the corruption of Madam Hillary made me want to vomit.
I’ve also used the term “Republicrim” for those Republicans who have been most prone to corruption in government. Yet I voted for Trump in the final round of elections (and voted for Reagan and others). I vote for what is right and for who can get the job done.
Both parties have “sin”, and I use the coined terms to denote those “sinners”. Yet both parties have many good and honorable folks in them doing a good and honest job. They just need to take back their parties.
The Dims Support For Criminals
Which brings me to the question posed in the title:
WHY is the Democratic party so fired up with the love of Criminals?
They are willing and happy to shut down the Federal Government over it. At present, we are in a Government Shutdown because Little Chucky Schumer and fellow Dimocrats can’t stand the idea of law enforcement. Go figure.
We’ve got some 10 to 12 million illegal aliens in our country. The exact number isn’t known as the Dimocrats don’t want it known. Now they’ve tried to chop that number up into “Special” groups that need “Special” sob story solutions. “Dreamers” and such. We get the bleat “NOONE will EVER deport 10 Million People!”. Well why not?
Look, I grew up with illegal aliens. My Best Friend’s Dad was likely an illegal. Only citizenship papers he had was a railroad retirement card. His personal story was he “Rode with Pancho Villa” and just crossed the border on horseback when he retired from that job… He was 70 something in the 1960s so about the right age; looked the part and had the attitude too. But moved to California with his much younger wife and worked the railroad.
Many times “cousins” would visit. At about 12 years old, the Eee-Ennn-Essay (INS) truck was seen down the street and all the “cousins” bugged out the back door. I got up to run with them and “Mama” informed me I was different and had no reason to play dodge the trucke verde (green truck). That was the first time I felt “different”. So yeah, I know that life style intimately having spent 1/2 my time at my friends home and seeing “Papa” hand over his retirement card and say “no passport, live here before papers”. (In those days many older people didn’t have ANY papers or even a birth certificate)
So no crying in the soup about it and no asserting I don’t know what it’s like or what it’s all about. There was a clear fear aspect, but there was also a very clear “Screw them – I’m going to do it illegally” aspect as well. A clear willingness to break the law and knowingly. These were not dumb folks, they knew exactly what they were doing.
So OK, we’ve got a load of kids brought in by their parents who are not “illegal by choice”. So what? Their parents made a bad decision. Like deciding to circumcise your kid, there are no “backsees” when the kid decides they don’t like that. The kids were conceived and born without their buy-in too. Their first language and what is spoken in the home were done without their concent. What foods they ate were chosen for them too. So am I supposed to be making special accommodations for every circumcised fat kid who doesn’t speak English well? “Life is a bitch and then you die.” Get over yourself.
I get it that they want a sob story. I get it that they want to look like Savior of the Innocent. What I don’t get is wanting that soooo much they will tell all the actual US Citizens “Screw You!”.
Is it just the $Billions of Soros Money coming with strings as he wants to destroy America?
Is it just the calculus of packing the voting booth with new Democratic Voters (even without citizenship…)?
Is it just the Identity Politics Fraud of divide and conquer, but where they can’t divide real Americans so want to import someone different?
(That one doesn’t work very well as the 2nd generation is pretty much Standard Americans. My best friend went into the Navy and generally leaned conservative. So did his brother. I’m 2nd generation immigrant on my Mum’s side.)
Is it just Media Hound Schumer tactics? Anything that gets you in the spotlight on camera is good, even supporting criminals?
I really don’t get it. The sheer obvious immorality of supporting criminal acts when their JOB is to make laws and enforce them and they can change the laws as desired and neccessary; just looks crazy to me.
If anyone can ‘splain it to me, I’d be thankful. If anyone wants to just bat it around, I’d be entertained ;-)
Oh, and if anyone actually notices that the government is shut down, AND it is a bad thing, I’d be interested in knowing. All the prior shutdowns didn’t seem to do a damn thing that was bad, other than the “show stuff” of on camera closing tourist monuments. Maybe we can just keep it shut down for a few years and see if anyone really notices the lack of “Government Services”. I found it funny that one Lame Stream Media source was crying that the IRS was even going to be shut down and it was already understaffed to deal with the tax code changes. IRS Shutdown? Beer is on me!
