First of all, let me congratulate our ‘cousins’ to the north in Cannuckville for their courage in attempting to silence that one-woman invasion by Anne Coulter. Apparently, the brave Canadian student body, looking for all the world like a medieval Santa Casa witch-burning, surrounded a building with rocks and sticks.
To say that the Canadian government has lost the principles of honesty and freedom of thought and expression in the interest of political correctness, and the interests of ‘certain’ protected minority groups, is an understatement. Huge kudos to Anne for sticking it to them in the way that only she can do and refusing to fall for their intimidation. By the way, I checked with my editor Dee and she informs me that although these columns are read all over the world, and in some of the most unlikely places, not one has ever been published in Canada to her knowledge. Wonder what that’s about? (grins).
The next assault against America by Obama is going to be over illegal immigration, despite the smoke screen of cap and trade (tax) and environmental issues. With his majority in the House, and very likely the Senate as well, in danger of becoming ex post facto in November, and the Conservative Patriot movement (what the left continues to dismiss as ‘tea parties’) growing in momentum and becoming a real force in American politics, Obama’s second term may be problematic.
In order to salvage his presidency he knows he needs the votes the illegals can bring him. We have to fight this thing tooth and nail and stop it cold. Don’t let anyone tell you that there are 11-12 million illegals in this country, that’s the figure the left loves to throw out there. The actual figure is probably a lot closer to 20 million, maybe a little less since so many construction and other jobs that were heavily populated by illegals have gone away with the recession. I’ve heard that a number of illegals have gone back across the border. Gee whizz! Sounds a lot like what would happen if our State and Federal governments cut off the goody train.
The saddest part about this whole thing is that the legitimate Hispanic/Latino population of this country is dead set against illegal immigration. The leftist press is only too happy to trumpet radical illegal immigrant support groups such as La Raza, MALDEF and ALIPAC and just as happy to ignore the millions of solid American citizens and legal immigrants of Latino descent. This doesn’t take into consideration the numbers of illegals of other nationalities which are numerous, and in the case of certain middle-eastern types, possible terrorists.
Start organizing in your communities now. Get involved on the local level, on school boards and in city councils. Contact your local Patriot groups and get active. Keep calling. Keep visiting Representatives’ and Senators’ offices.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
