Bloviating Zeppelin: Ann Coulter Is Right -- Again

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Ann Coulter Is Right -- Again

(My thanks to Rebecca for the following article!)

I'm not in the business of simply reprinting copies of others' articles for a post but in this case I make an exception. Ann Coulter -- a RWSS (Right Wing Shit Stirrer) of the first degree -- you either despise her or admire her -- has written an article that, in my estimation, deserves reproduction here in its entirety:

This is the only country on Earth that thinks it's not sporting to consider our own interests in choosing immigrants.

Try showing up in any other country on the planet, illiterate and penniless, and announcing: "I've seen pictures of your country and it looks great. I think I'd like to live here! Oh, and by the way, would you mind changing all your government and business phone messages, street signs and ballots into my native language? Thanks!"

They would laugh you out of the country.

What seems not to have occurred to the "NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL" crowd is that this is a country, not a public park.

There are more than 6 billion people in the world, many of whom apparently like the idea of living in the wealthiest democracy on Earth. But if the billions of people of the world did live here, it wouldn't be "here" anymore. America is special for a reason that must transcend the right to vote – or everyone would be trying to immigrate to Iraq right now.

America has a seller's market in immigration, but thanks to Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration law, we no longer favor skilled workers from developed nations, but instead favor unskilled immigrants from the Third World.

Kennedy's bill promptly cut the number of European immigrants in half and increased Third World immigrants to 85 percent of the total.

Not surprisingly, post-1965 immigrants have sharply higher levels of poverty and welfare dependence. Europeans may not seem like ideal new immigrants, but the truth is, if what they want is welfare, they'll stay in France.

It's as if we've got the last Xbox 360s available on Christmas Eve and instead of doubling the price, we're entertaining low-ball offers. Or more accurately, we're paying our customers to take the darn things off our hands – and the customers are still indignant with us.

On CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on Monday, Dobbs was interviewing Nativo Lopez, president of the Mexican-American Political Association about his demand for "full immediate, unconditional legalization for all persons currently in the United States."

Dobbs posed this innocuous question about Lopez's planned boycott, "You're talking about a boycott of all illegal aliens in this country?"

Lopez exploded: "Well, first off, I refute your terminology. You don't say 'kike,' 'patty,' 'WOP,' OK. You don't say "nigger"! ... You're using language that's offensive to me and offensive to my people! ... You pollute the air every day, Dobbs. ... That language is offensive, it's derogatory, it's denigrating, and don't use that terminology to me again, referring to my people!"

Dobbs eventually ended Lopez's Tourette's episode by calmly asking him what he expected the impact of the boycott to be.

An hour later on MSNBC's "Hardball," Dave Rodriguez, of the League of United Latin American Citizens, leapt in to denounce Rep. Tom Tancredo for using the word "amnesty." He said: "There isn't any such thing as amnesty in this law. I don't understand what this debate is. That's your own terminology on it ..."

Bank robbers and drug dealers ought to start claiming that the words "bank robber" and "drug dealer" are akin to the N-word. They could accuse lawmakers of "criminalizing felonies" and claim they don't understand what the word "jailbreak" means.

At the same time on CNN's "The Situation Room," Maria Elena Salinas, an anchor at Univision, was informing Wolf Blitzer that "all Hispanics feel offended by what has been going on, by the rhetoric, the level of the negativity that you hear coming out of Capitol Hill and also on some television stations and by some journalists."

So it's really more like we've got the last Xbox 360s available on Christmas Eve and the customers are not only demanding money to take the hottest sales item off our hands, but are verbally abusing us and acting petulant. I'm offended that you would even think about asking me to pay for the Xbox 360! You say it has a "20 GB detachable hard drive"? Well, would you use the word "kike"?

As hardworking as illegal immigrants are when they come here, they are immediately demagogued by liberals into adopting the victimhood pose so popular on college campuses.

Everybody wants to act like his ancestors were brought here on slave ships.

Consider this e-mail from Michele Waslin, La Raza's director of Immigration Policy Research, to her members denouncing Sen. Lamar Alexander's proposal to provide government grants to immigrants who want to learn English and American history and to organizations offering those courses. (I'd be happy with a law that simply trained new immigrants not to be "offended" all the time.)

Even though this potentially meant free money for La Raza, Waslin – of the Guadalajara Waslins – ominously warned that while the amendment "doesn't overtly mention assimilation, it is very strong on the patriotism and traditional American values language in a way which is potentially dangerous to our communities."

Meanwhile, Americans aren't allowed to consider whether millions of immigrants refusing to learn English and American history is "potentially dangerous to our communities."

Here, please – we'll pay you, just take the whole Xbox 360 factory.


Thus endeth the lesson.

Hey there BZ:
Glad to see you blogging a bit. I have always had mixed feelings about this RWST! hahahahahahha But in some sense I agree with her. We must be discriminating in our tastes in immigration policy. It makes little sense to allow people into the country who have no interest or regard for American culture or politics. We have to get people in who want to be part of the great fabric of our country; not simply those who look at America as a meal ticket!

I have found those immigrants who just look at America as a meal ticket to be smug and non appreciative of all that America can offer them and all that they can give America. It is just about a cheque for them and nothing more. We have to gid rid of that attitude so that people have allegiance to our country.

People with these attitudes will make up a country of immigrants. Sorry for ranting.

Great post again.. I had to re-read this. She just makes sense. A lot of it is common sense which we don't have a lot of these days. If you read this and come away in disagreement or you are a complete idiot.
Did you hear the latest? Ann said the illegal immigrants should be the ones who build the wall. Another great statement.

This is one of the few times I agree with Ann. I think the common sense is lost the moment we ask, "Now what?"

A wall, cheap for the security.

End NAFTA free trade does not include unemployed. Save Free Trade for Nations actually *friendly* to us.

Now if only there were a party that supported the Republic and was willing to keep it a bit more secure.

"A Republic, madam, if you can keep it." - Ben Franklin telling a lady asking 'What sort of government will we get?'

I'm thinking that I should create an entire website on its own, simply because James Manning actually AGREES with one of the Right Wing's MOST RIGHT WING nutjobs!

How wacky is that??!!?
