The more time that passes, the more Trump’s message resonates with the populace. The left and the big-government wing of the right, both here and in Europe, need immigration to fuel their government-based economic policies. They need the underclass to justify the police state. They need a class of consumers capable of being placated by government cheese, sex, drugs, and circuses. They are willing – more than willing, eager to accept a level of violence and mayhem that keeps the productive class living in fear.
As Brendan noted in his comment on the previous post, neither criminal activities nor terrorist attacks threaten the vast majority of the ruling elite. They are protected, living in zones where drive-bys do not occur. Their children are not thrown into the maelstroms of public schools, subject to teacher-union flunkies working for retirement. The lives of their children are not destroyed, for the most part, by illegal drugs and the violence that surrounds the black market. They are not working in or visiting the schools, shops, malls, and offices that get shot up or blown up. They do not fear the ghetto because it is the ghetto. They do not fear the danger the invaders carry because they will have contact only with the peaceful gardeners, cooks, and housekeepers among them.
Instead, the rulers fear us, the productive middle-class, the blue-collar people, the mechanics and engineers, the electricians, plumbers, truck drivers, accountants, coders, welders, and machinists. They fear us because we interact with the real world. We may not understand quantum mechanics, but the best explanation I ever heard of how a nuclear reactor operates came not from a nuclear engineer but from a construction foreman on the Comanche Peak plant in Texas. He knew how it had to work.
I don’t know if Donald Trump would be a “good” president. I am well past the point of thinking that any president is going do much in the direction of making this country better for my grandchildren. I doubt that I will even vote in the 2016 presidential election. What I like about Trump is that he has addressed immigration as a problem. His remarks this week line up with what he has already said about building a wall across the southern border. We need to stop the invasion. We need to stop using the words “immigrant” and “refugee”. They are invaders. Invaders are an existential threat to our way of life and to our freedom.
Somewhere between 1% and 10% of Syrian refugees are going to be terrorists. Another 25% (conservatively) are going to be sympathizers, supporters, and enablers. If we allow in 10,000, we are talking about 100 to 1000 terrorists and 2500 terrorist supporters. That is the reality. I am not afraid of those people, but I am angry that this regime is so callous with regard to the lives of American citizens and so willing to use the terrorists and the death and destruction they bring to further restrict, regulate, and deny us our liberties.
