Following my recent series of articles asking will different forms of society doom the U.S., the theory is evidenced by history and appears to be manifesting itself right before our eyes.
On January 12, 2018, DNC Vice Chair Keith Ellison did not debate what the definition of “is”, “is”. He did not ask, “At this point, what difference does it make?” Ellison did not mince his words when he proclaimed: the national party has a litmus test for candidates when it comes to protecting illegal aliens. Ellison told Pennsylvania Democrats in a church sanctuary that candidates should file in line and support a “clean DREAM Act,” or those candidates would run into trouble with the party.
My, my…gives new meaning to Democratic National Committee.
“There cannot be one single politician in the state of Pennsylvania who is in a state of confusion about how you feel,” he told the audience.
So it appears the divide may be deeper than just on the surface. It’s not just about different forms of societies in the U.S. It appears to be different forms of society within a society…Both Democrats and Republicans.
One of Ellison’s statements stood out to me: “There cannot be one single politician in the state of Pennsylvania who is in a state of confusion about how you feel.” Many have described President Trump’s immigration policies as racists, bigoted, and inhumane. I would like to offer the following thought.
Without a tangible act of racism, racism becomes a purely emotional feeling. The fact someone’s emotional feeling leads them to believe something is racist and that something leads to a feeling of difference in capability or superiority of a race doesn’t define that something as racist. I’m going to get crucified for saying this, but it actually exposes a person’s lack of self-confidence that they are an equal in status, race, and capability. In no way am I trying to say an emotional feeling doesn’t hurt a person psychologically.
Something to ponder
In order for someone to challenge a law, one must have standing and having suffered an injury in fact at the time of the filing of the complaint. The law of standing normally involves whether the plaintiff had suffered or is threatened inquires whether events subsequent to the filing of a suit have eliminated the controversy between the parties. If a person is in this country illegally, they are and should be afforded due process as an illegal alien. But to afford an illegal alien the right to sue to redress an injury for being deported is ludicrous. An illegal alien knows in their country of origin that there are penalties and laws regarding immigration into their country and should not expect anything less coming into the United States. Just ask Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi how that works entering Mexico. Rights should be bestowed upon legal citizens, not illegal aliens. There’s a process for entering Mexico and Canada and no less of a process should be expected for the United States. It’s not an issue about racism, religion, or DACA. It’s about the rule of law.
In a divided political climate, remember to share this and all articles on The Trump Times to help spread the America First message…not Democrat First or Republican First…America First and help President Trump unify the country to Make America Great Again! #MAGA
