It’s the basis of Marxist/Communist thought…
To be in a communist state, you have to be ”one of us” or an enemy of the state, there is no middle ground. Czech socialist politician Milada Horáková was executed by the Czechoslovakian state because she wouldn’t support a full Marxist state.
HOW “IDENTITY POLITICS” IS DESIGNED TO DESTROY US
The Left’s resurrection of the totalitarian faith.
In January 2018 when negotiations over the fate of 800,000 “DACA” recipients broke down, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed the impasse on the alleged racism of President Trump and his senior advisers. “Last night the president put forth a plan,” Pelosi told the US Conference of Mayors; “let me just say what I said last night, that plan is a campaign to make America white again.” This was not only an obvious lie, but a spectacularly brazen one, since Trump’s announced plan would provide a path to citizenship not only for the DACA illegals, who are non-white, but for a million additional illegals, mainly from Latin America, who are also mainly non-white.
Trump’s general immigration plan seeks to move to a merit based system, which would give priority to immigrants who can contribute needed skills to the country and would have a reasonable chance of success when they got here. Giving priority to English speakers, one aspect of this reform, would enhance the ability of new arrivals to assimilate and succeed. To oppose such a plan one would have believe that non-white immigrants don’t have skills or don’t speak English. The latter insinuation was actually made by CNN’s anti-Trump reporter Jim Acosta, who suggested that Trump wanted only immigrants from white majority countries “England and Australia” In fact, English is the official language in over 57 countries, including such non-white countries as Zimbabwe, Uganda and Botswana, as well as Caribbean nations like Jamaica and Guyana.
Pelosi’s malicious accusation was even more disconnected from reality, since Trump has never proposed excluding or expelling populations based on race, which would be the only way to “make America white again” (whatever that might actually mean). Yet this denial of the obvious facts in order to gin up a racial indictment of what otherwise would be seen as patriotic policies has become the ever present theme of Democrat attacks on Trump’s presidency. These attacks began with his first statement on immigration during the opening presidential primary debate. At that time, speaking specifically of people crossing the border illegally, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with [them]. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
This warning, however factual its basis, was ineptly put by a novice politician, but its meaning was clear to any fair-minded listener. When millions of people invade a country in defiance of its laws and without passing through a vetting and citizenship process, that is a threat to the nation and its citizens – regardless of the color or origin of the perpetrators. Yet this otherwise reasonable concern was immediately turned by Trump’s opponents into an alleged attack on Mexicans for being Mexican, and more pointedly on “people of color” for being different – both blatant lies.
After Trump’s election, Democrats adopted the same strategy in their “resistance” to his presidential executive order temporarily suspending travel from six terrorist states. The express purpose of the order was to provide time for proper vetting system to be put in place to protect American citizens. The Democrats’ unscrupulous campaign to frame this policy as “anti-Muslim” and “anti-minority” included suborning leftwing appeals courts to ignore the constitutional authority clearly granted to the president by law, and instead invoke his off-the-cuff campaign remarks to make the case that the order was racially biased.
