Only eight short years from now, immigrants will make up a record-high 14.8 percent of the total U.S. population, and longtime conservative leader Phyllis Schlafly views the rising tide of newcomers as a purposeful attack on the country.
By the nation’s own president.
“It’s deliberate,” she said. “It’s not any accident. It’s because Obama and his friends are letting people in who don’t want to be Americans, who don’t want to speak English.”
Conservative activist and author Richard Viguerie, noted that most of today’s immigrants come from nations more politically and culturally liberal than the United States. Therefore, he expects the growing immigrant population to make the entire country more liberal.
“It’s going to pull America to the left, for sure,” Viguerie said. “America will become closer to the European model of state control of our country.”
“I think one of the reasons Obama and his friends are so eager to open the gates to more and more immigrants is they think it’s going to defeat the conservative movement and the Republican Party,” Schlafly said. “Of course, they all come from countries that are not used to the idea of limited government. They’re used to countries where the government makes all the decisions, and they don’t know anything different.
Viguerie agreed if all the new immigrants vote, it would spell the death of the Republican Party. But he also worries about another way the party might be destroyed.
“The Republican Party, if it were to nominate a pro-amnesty candidate, would self-destruct,” Viguerie said. “It would just drive a stake in the hearts of the grassroots Republican voters, and there would be almost no chance the Republican nominee could win the election.”
Viguerie believes Jeb Bush is completely on the wrong side of the immigration issue. He said Marco Rubio and Scott Walker are suspect on the issue, even though Walker recently talked about the need to reform legal immigration.
“But a Bobby Jindal, a Ted Cruz are solidly anti-amnesty,” Viguerie said. “They’re in sync with the majority of the Republican voters and the majority of Americans.”
“The powers-that-be, the propagandists, big media, and the big donors in the Republican Party are all pushing this massive immigration,” she said. “And of course that’s the view of big business – they want the cheap labor.”
“We may be at a breaking point already, I don’t know,” Schlafly said. However, she noted that she remains a Reagan optimist and doesn’t believe America will totally collapse.
“We may be closer to that than we suspect, because Obama is on a fast track to change the voting demographics of this country by importing tens of millions of Democrat voters from South America, and so we could reach a tipping point within a few years,” Viguerie said.
“We’ve got a large percentage of people here who are not Americans, they don’t want to be Americans, they’re not assimilating, they want to keep their culture, they want to keep their language, they don’t know our history.”
Viguerie specifically referenced radical Muslims as one group that should not be let into the country.
“We need a different vetting system,” he declared. If you’re a radical Muslim, you should not be coming to this country, and we don’t have a proper vetting system for people who are interested in our destruction.”
“We don’t have the leadership in the Congress, or in the executive branch, and we don’t have it in the Republican Party,” he said.
Viguerie said it will be up to voters to demand that their leaders solve the immigration crisis. He hopes some of the newer tea party-affiliated congressmen will provide real leadership on the immigration issue.
“Right now, most of the people who are thought to be leaders on the Republican side are intimidated by mainstream media and hesitant to step out, but it’s time to say we need to call a halt to mass immigration into this country here,” he said.
Schlafly feels the American people are already on her side when it comes to immigration control. Indeed, a Gallup poll taken last June found a plurality of Americans, 41 percent, thought current immigration levels should be decreased. Only 22 percent thought they should be increased.
“I think the public opinion polls are showing that the majority of Americans agree with the views that I’ve been expressing,” Schlafly contended. “However, major media doesn’t put it out that way.”
I would agree that the Republicans are intimidated by the media, but more importantly they are intimidated by the Democrats. They are failing the party and the country.
Schlafly and other conservatives have been putting this same message out for years, so it’s not new, but the question is when do the Republicans hear it and pay attention to the voices? Judging from their recent history, I’d say not anytime soon. They seem to be more in alignment with the Dems with each new move they make.
Along with the illegal immigrant problem, we’re also dealing with domestic terrorists, Mexican gangs, Russians, Chinese, muslims who think they’re above the law, racism that’s been revitalized, the communists are hard at work, idiot voters and Soros’ billions supporting it all.
Yes, it should be an interesting future for America.
