No, they're not living in Bizarro World.

Really. They're NOT.

How predictable are you. Lol

The NYT, NPR, WAPO, and many others all loved to quote SPLC for filler in any such story. Whatever happened to 'if your mother says she loves you, check it out?' MSM has been an utter fraud for some time now, and I say that as someone who is a liberal.
well said. msm always trusts their putrid output without question. but why?

It’s this reverse racism nonsense, they see any group that is even remotely critical of policies intended to preserve the historical straight white Christian majority as a threat. Groups that make it an open policy to try to preserve this majority are considered good.

To these people, America becoming more multicultural and especially becoming a minority majority country is seen as a threat to their social identity. It’s a sad, fear based xenophobia that Trump exposed and exploited for his political gain. He was novel in that one aspect, no one really had any idea just how widespread this irrational fear was in the GOP base.

Remotely critical? Calling the policies and the people xenophobic, racist, supremacist, Nazi, Klan etc is not remotely critical. And of course its a threat to have open borders forever to people who are opposed to your very identity and culture and want to take from you what was yours . It's just an invasion and conquest of a people really.

Your post couldnít be more wrong.

The majority of the people coming here believe strongly in the American identity and culture, specifically that if you work hard opportunities will open up for you.

They see their home countries as devoid of such opportunities but the promise of the American ideal of merit based prosperity is enough for them to undertake a hard journey to try and come here.

Secondly, most immigrants who do come here are more hard working than a good percentage of native born Americans.

As an old white fella who's been to the 3rd world and seen how much of humanity lives, I thank my lucky stars that by accident of birth, I'm an American.

All these white guys going around acting like they're suddenly victims is kind of amusing. They think it's based on their ethnicity.

When, all the time, it's been based on their social class.

There's no warfare but class warfare.

But they just keep on voting Pub, anyway.

Go figure.

And they vote for and support polices against the majority.

I noticed at the end you put that slight in against native born Americans. I don't care whether most foreigners work hard. Most of the benefit goes to them. If it were all about bringing foreigners for workers, then why do they need to ever be given citizenship and the right to vote? That's a red herring.
