Recently, Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo created quite a stir when he called Miami a “Third World country”.
The remarks, part of an interview with World Net Daily conducted during “Restoration Weekend” in South Florida, drew immediate fire from a number of defensive lawmakers, including Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Tancredo, in making the characterization, said in the WND piece:
“Look at what has happened to Miami. It has become a Third World country. You just pick it up and take it and move it someplace. You would never know you’re in the United States of America. You would certainly say you’re in a Third World country.”
Mr. Bush responded with:
“’The bottom line is Miami is a wonderful city filled with diversity and heritage that we choose to celebrate, not insult.”
A typical knee-jerk reaction that includes the obligatory PC word, “diversity”. As Ronald Reagan might have said, “Well, there you go again…”
Tancredo, refusing to back down, replied in a letter to the governor:
“I certainly understand and appreciate your need and desire to try and create the illusion of Miami as a multiethnic ‘All American’ city. Indeed sir, one of us is naïve. America, because of the many places, cultures, races, and religious origins of our citizenry, depends on a few things to hold us together. One is the English language. That is something that fewer and fewer Miamians share. Unfortunately fewer and fewer Miamians think of themselves as Americans.”
Is Mr. Bush being naïve? Or is the truth a tad more nefarious?
The Bush family most certainly seems infected with a desire to allow illegal aliens to come and go as they please. The governor’s brother, our current president, has held a long-standing position of aiding and abetting illegal entry into this country by supporting what he calls “guest worker programs”. George W. Bush is fond of saying this is not “amnesty”, despite the fact that it would grant citizenship to millions of lawbreakers already within our borders. His push for “comprehensive immigration reform” would also lower the bar for future “legal” immigration, whereby millions more would be allowed into the U.S. as well. Apparently the president plans on having a fire sale on “citzenships”.
Add to this the proposed “NAFTA superhighway” and its ultimate conclusion, which would be a “North American Union”, and our borders would essentially be erased – along with our national sovereignty. Texas congressman Ron Paul, who has actively investigated the reports emerging concerning this maneuvering, has issued this warning:
“The administration needs a strong message from Congress that the American people will not tolerate backroom deals that threaten our sovereignty.”
The words of congressmen Tancredo and Paul should serve as a wake-up call to all Americans – the U.S. as we know it could vanish before our very eyes if we quietly allow this to happen. The current president is a globalist – and with the help of a Democrat controlled congress and too many Republican RINO’s, amnesty for illegal aliens is almost a certainty. After that, as millions more come streaming across our border legally and illegally, cities like Miami could well become the norm.
Fellow columnist Frosty Wooldridge has just concluded a twelve part series entitled, “The Next Added 100 Million Americans” in which he examines the impact of an increasing population being fed primarily by illegal aliens. Frosty looks at this in terms of the economic, cultural, health and environmental assault this represents on our nation. The drain on our resources – already very high – will become staggering. Our own poor, already struggling, will have an even more difficult time, as they continue to become displaced by even poorer immigrants who will work for less. This is a recipe for disaster. As Wooldridge said in part twelve:
We cannot import millions of desperately poor, illiterate, hard working people from Third World countries and think they will become functioning, positive aspects in a First World country. Holland, France and Great Britain’s immigration policies fail on every level. Ours will, too!
There are of course those who don’t like to hear the plain truth about illegal immigration, which means a number of those who speak out against it have been shouted down and even threatened. The latest example concerns Congressman Tancredo, who after his public war with words over his Miami remarks, had scheduled a speech in Florida at the Rusty Pelican restaurant in Key Biscayne. The restaurant abruptly cancelled the appearance after an alleged threat was made against the restaurant, although their manager is denying this is the reason for the cancellation.
And so it goes. The flood of illegals continues unabated, the mainstream media continues to gush sympathy for those who break our immigration laws while expressing contempt for those who speak out against the invasion, most of our elected leaders continue to look the other way and do nothing and the President of the United States looks forward with glee as his dream of amnesty for illegal aliens comes ever closer to becoming reality.
Will Americans en masse demand that our government change direction? Will Joe Six-Pack wake up and listen to Tom Tancredo and Ron Paul? Will more local governments enact tough local measures to stop the takeover of our nation and its culture?
We must, or the third world cometh – and soon.
