President Obama’s active encouragement of the illegal immigrant invasion is community organizing writ large. It’s also a genius application of Saul Alinsky’s revolutionary strategy: Stoke chaos to pave the way for a radical agenda.
To the leftists, the American people need to be browbeaten, sued, abused and attacked by their own government in service of their greater goal of “fundamentally transforming” the nation. If you don’t like it, here comes a Mexican drug lord with a Fast and Furious gun we gave him to convince you of the error of your ways.
This was the real point of Mr. Obama’s executive action on immigration.
Diluting American power and sovereignty is what Mr. Obama’s border and immigration policy is all about: Flood the zone and watch American exceptionalism melt away. If Mr. Obama’s goals are realized, America will look more like the United States of Yugoslavia. We know well how that hellhole turned out. Oh, that’s right; it doesn’t exist anymore. Mr. Obama’s goal is to turn America into a Balkanized polyglot mess, devoid of a national creed or purpose.
In 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton asserted that the drug cartels operating in Mexico, in Central America and at the border were beginning to look like an insurgency, and that Mexico was “looking more and more like Colombia looked 20 years ago, where the narcotraffickers control certain parts of the country.”
Within 24 hours, Mr. Obama slapped her down. “Mexico is a vast and progressive democracy,” he said, “with a growing economy, and as a result you cannot compare what is happening in Mexico with what happened in Colombia 20 years ago.”
The real reason Mr. Obama slammed Mrs. Clinton’s argument? If it were allowed to stand, then Mr. Obama would have to actually do something to enforce the southern border. Mr. Obama doesn’t take much action to secure the border because he needs the chaos it engenders.
The more illegals trespassing into the United States, the better: more votes for him and his party, more drain on essential services such as schools, hospitals and police, leading to demands for ever-bigger government and the spending to support it, and more diluting of American power.
The chaos of a wide-open border hits all redistributionist goals in one efficient swoop.
