Arguing with an Invasion Supporter
Discuss Immigration Issues with a Mexican American. Truth, Honesty and the American Way!and describes herself like so:
Hello. My name is Dee. I live in Texas. I am an American. My ethnicity is Hispanic. Many would call me Mexican or Mexican American. Some call me a female, PRO-Immigration Reform - Ann Coulter. My parents, their parents and theirs were all born in the USA. My husband and I have been happily married for over 20 years. My husband is a big, Irish-American. We have two grown sons. We are happy and my family is doing well. I have been employed as a mid level manager at a very large, well known corporation for over 20 years. In May, 2006, after the Immigration Marches, I started seeing the cable news channels talking very negatively about illegal immigration. I found many internet sites were talking negatively about legal and illegal immigration issues as well. Since I do research on the job, I started conducting Immigration research on the web. I joined several Immigration websites and I researched others. I´ve learned so much about Immigration issues over the last year. What you don´t see on the internet is the Mexican American perspective. I am here to share my views with you.Dee writes in a polite and pleasant manner. To her credit she does not misinterpret my brusque style as rude.
I couldn't resist commenting at length on an item titled Why the ANTIs are winning the Argument right now. (FYI dee calls herself and others who support the invasion "PRO", and anyone who opposes the invasion "ANTI", though she does not use the word invasion.)
The problem I have with dee is that I believe she, to put it very bluntly, is a fifth columnist. This is because she views virtually everything through the lens of her Mexican identity, unabashedly supports the invasion, and yet puts on airs that she's a centrist seeking compromise. She loves to say she favors enforcement - of the Senate's toothless "comprehensive reform" variety of course.
Her argument ranges from stories about her father, to immigration law from 1924, to flatly asserting that we simply cannot deport all the illegals. Right off the bat she tried to dismiss me by calling me an "extremist" full of "hate" toward "all Latinos". Hopefully it's clear why the ANTIs win these arguments. The PROs bring nothing of substance.
It's a long thread, but quite revealing. She's very slippery. I still can't quite tell if she's earnest with an ethnocentric bias, craving attention, or just blowing smoke deliberately in order to waste people's time. Perhaps a bit of all. More than a few commenters certainly are wasting their time getting into the nitty gritty of "compromise" with her, and in my view that's not a good thing. So it was worth my time to try and disillusion her readers (present and future) and deflate her little personal blogspot-Senate.
I want more Americans to see more quickly just how fruitless it is to compromise with the invaders and their apologists, to see how flimsy their promises are, and how anti-American their ultimate aims are. Immigration "moderates" (like Muslim "moderates") try to exploit our good will and fair nature. They're not interested in compromise. They're interested in weakening our defense so their buddies can fuck us. My country has taken enough of that.
As bad as the invasion is, imagine how much closer to a balkanized third world shithole we'd be if the Senate's duplicitous "compromise" had passed. We'd have no hope of deporting the violent scum overrunning our country. Unfortunately El Presidente and half the Senate continue to argue just like dee, and pine for exactly the kind of "compromise" she does. Too many loyal Americans are too ill-informed or too frightened about being called names to stand up in defense of their country.
Wake up America. Listen to the brown supremacists. We don't need to negotiate our future with hostile aliens and their fifth columnists. We need to tell the bigots to shut up, and start sending them home.
