As the United States Congress attempts to essentially do away with any limitations on immigration whatsoever with a bill that will legalize virtually anyone and make all non-citizens eligible for welfare and free health care, it might be a good time to look at the latest immigration news from around the world.
In Great Britain, a soldier was beheaded in broad daylight by at least two Muslim extremists. Why? Because the British government was stupid enough to allow people who did not love Britain or who did not fit in with the British to immigrate to that county. We'll soon find out whether the killers were on welfare, but my guess is that they were.
Of, and just for fun news, an English town has decided to stop displaying the English flag, on the grounds that Muslims might be offended, since England participated in the Crusades.
Sweden has now endured its third night of rioting in immigrant neighborhoods, relating to the death of a knife-wielding man in Husby, a suburb from which native Swedes have been run off. The riots are made worse by the irresponsible decision of the police not to use machine guns to quell the disorder. The problem? Once again, like Britain, Sweden allowed massive numbers of immigrants who didn't fit in, weren't very employable, and didn't have a true love and allegiance to Sweden to enter the country. They are reaping what they have sown.
Right here in the good, ol' United States, a Chechen immigrant with ties to the Boston Marathon bombers was shot and killed by law enforcement officers after he attacked them during an interview. Ibragim Todashev was no stranger to violence; he recently put an American citizen in the hospital as a result of a dispute over a parking space.
Now here's an interesting question for you. How many Chechan immigrants have you even heard of in this country? For me the answer is three. All three have turned out to be murderous Islamic extremists or thugs. But the liberals tell us we must pretend there is no difference in people from different countries, that every potential immigrant must be assumed to be an altar boy. Just because 100 percent of the Chechans we've heard of have turned out to be ultra-violent thugs is no reason to subject other Chechans to increased scrutiny. Oh, no!
Make no mistake, I support legal immigration. I think that as a society we need as many really smart immigrants who speak English and who love our country as we can get. But these immigrants must be able to support themselves, and be admitted on the basis of how much they will contribute to our society, not based on how cheaply they will pick a pint of strawberries to enrich some dirtbag berry farmer. We mustn't allow prospective failures to enter the country, as all they will do is blame their failure on American society and start killing people. Or maybe well be lucky and they won't kill; they'll just steal, or maybe just suck all the money out of our welfare system.
There is a bipartisan group of U.S. senators known as the Gang of Eight essentially trying to eliminate America's borders and provide welfare benefits to the world. These men are nothing less than traitors to the American people. There will be another election in 18 months, and I seriously doubt the Gang of Eight can pack the voter rolls with enough illegal voters in that time to save themselves and their allies.
So I'm looking forward to seeing a few of these guys turned out of office in 2014, provided one of their immigrant allies doesn't murder, behead, or blow me up before then.
