Florida Congressman: ‘White People’ to Blame for Collapse of Amnesty in Congress
PJ Media ^ | August 2, 2014 | J. Christian Adams

Posted on 08/02/2014 11:23:12 AM PDT by jazusamo

Matt Boyle has this fascinating piece about the inner workings of the legislative battle this week over the border crisis. The bill pushed by the Republican leadership had a number of serious defects.

The story recounted by Boyle is how a small group of activists and congressmen drove the immigration narrative, and ultimately the legislative outcome.

Buried toward the end of Boyle’s piece is a disgraceful statement from Florida Representative Alcee Hastings (D):

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) decried the House GOP lawsuit as he addressed “all the white people in here” during the Rules Committee hearing — which was filled with battles between the Democrats and the newly unified Republicans like Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, who both also commented to the Rules panel.

Forget about Hastings’ impeachable past. What his statement represents is the increasingly open philosophy in Democrat Party circles that race explains everything, including the certain demise of the GOP in time. Instead of acquiescing to this evil, instead of accepting the premise of this immoral racialism, the Republican Party must strike back.

has

David Horowitz this week said it’s time for Republicans to start calling out the racists in the Democrat Party. He’s right. The response to those who would support Alcee Hastings cannot be outreach. Instead, the GOP must borrow the morality of the civil rights movement and condemn, isolate and ridicule the sentiments of Alcee Hastings and his ilk. If you ignore the cancerous attitude he expressed this week, it will continue to metastasize and block your timid “growth and opportunity” outreach.

No matter how much money the GOP spends, you cannot sow the seeds of opportunity on soil where the enemy has sown weeds. The GOP must first bundle the weeds and burn them.

How? Step One is to recognize a coordinated and wicked racial attitude which has become a central organizing catalyst of the modern Democrat Party: whites are to blame for ________; race is to blame for ______.

Blaming races and groups of people for what ails a nation is a tactic used by the wicked for centuries.

If the Republican Party wants to make progress on racial issues, it needs to go back to its roots. It needs to echo the universal views of people like Senator Charles Sumner and expose and crush the racialist tropes of the congressman from Fort Lauderdale. Without aggressively confronting and exposing the immoral (and sadly far too popular) attitude expressed by Hastings, timid outreach efforts are doomed to fail.

Will it happen? Maybe, if the Republican Party ignores those who think silence about racial issues is the way to win. Meanwhile, the other side enforces groupthink.

Rep. Hastings was previously a Federal Judge, impeached and convicted for bribery.

Typical Democrat criminal helping other criminals.

The 21st Century is, and will be, the century of the blood.

Hastings is correct - white people, most of them not yet racially conscious, stopped this bill.

The Left has had 50 free years of explicit black and brown racial consciousness, unopposed. This will, at some point, end.

Today's fun fact.

Alcee is one of only eight federal officials in American history to be impeached and removed from office.

That's lawyer talk for Alcee's a scumbag.

If whites are responsible for the collapse of this lousy amnesty bill than I’m proud to be a white person.

These bastards need to be sent home and we shouldn’t give them an award of amnesty just because they violated our laws.

Let Obama suck on that.

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...

The problem is the REPUBLICAN CONSULTANTS (most of them gay, by the way) WILL NOT permit the Republicans to STREET FIGHT, which is what you have to do if you’re caught on the street with a bunch of people that want to fight you.

...that is essentially their situation, now that any semblance of decorum is TOTALLY GONE in Congress.

Alright! Chalk one up for the white people!

I was thinking the same thing. Why are people cringing at this? In a way, he's likely more right than he'll admit. While he's trying to imply racism, in reality, white people still consist of a majority of this nation's racial make up. So yes, Alcee Hastings, white people are to blame, and you won't find too many who are willing stand down for that.

Alcee, here is my message to you. Black people are to blame for crime in the United States per capita. Why can’t you address that problem.

We sure do not need more Cartels coming into the USA in an open border to sell Black Youth more Drugs, to create more crime. Wake up Alcee quit trying to create more problems through ignorance.
