The Democratic Party has lost big time in the nearly concluded 2014 Congressional elections. Only Louisiana’s runoff election between Mary Landrieu (D) and Bill Cassidy (R) remains undecided.
Cassidy is going to win. Even the Democratic Party realizes this and has decided not to spend any more money on her campaign. This means that Republicans will have 54 Senators as compared to 45 in the outgoing Senate. Republicans also increased the number of House Reps by at least 12 to 244 and the number of Governors by two to 31.
Before the elections, Obama had said, ‘Make no mistake. My policies are on the ballot this fall.’ But what was President Barack Obama’s reaction after the voters clearly rejected his policies? He responded by going more to the left. He is doubling down on those unpopular policies that gave the Democrats such a beating.
One such policy the left wants is amnesty for illegal immigrants. Obama has issued an executive order to allow up to 5 million illegal immigrants to stay in the US.
He had postponed this decision till after the elections for obvious reasons – it is unpopular. But why? Deep down inside, Obama is a radical leftist. Before the elections, he was constrained by the need to keep the Senate in Democratic control. Now that the election is over, he can do what he truly believes in.
The left has been influenced by Marx, who believed that the workingman has no country. A passage from Chapter II of the Communist Manifesto reads:
‘The Communists are further reproached for desiring to abolish countries and nationality.The working men have no country.’
A Marxist’s loyalty is not to his country, but to the workers of the world whom he believes are oppressed. That is why so many ‘progressives’ talk about abolishing the border. Granting amnesty is a de facto way of rendering all borders and nationality null and void.
While supporters of open borders are not all Marxists, there is a strong Marxist component among them. One such proponent is Aviva Chomsky, the daughter of notorious linguistic professor Naom Chomsky.
In the final chapter of her book, ‘They take our jobs: And 20 other Myths about Immigration,’ Chomsky wrote:
‘Today’s immigration is structured by contemporary relationships among countries and regions, and by their history of economic inequality. Unequal economic relationships should be changed — not because they lead to migration, but because they lead to human suffering and an unsustainable world. High levels of migration are a symptom of a global economic system that privileges the few at the expense of the many. It could be called capitalism, it could be called neoliberalism, it could be called globalization, it could be called neocolonialism. As long as it keeps resources unequally distributed in the world, you’re going to have people escaping the regions that are deliberately kept poor and violent and seeking freedom in the places where the world’s resources have been concentrated: in the countries that have controlled, and been the beneficiaries of, the global economic system since 1492.’
The radical’s loyalty is not to the US. It is to the workers of the world whom they believe to be oppressed by the capitalist class. Inequality of wealth is seen as oppression. The US being one of the wealthiest countries in the world is thus seen as the biggest oppressor. So letting the victims of the oppressor into the country is striking a blow against the biggest oppressor. It may make things worse for Americans to compete with this influx of cheap labor, but that does not matter to someone who feels no loyalty to the US.
During the election campaign for US President in 2008, I detected tell tale signs of this Marxist ideology in then Senator Barack Obama. He initially refused to wear an American flag lapel pin. I then suspected he was signalling to radicals that he feels no loyalty to the US.
Even worse, Obama had been attending the church of Rev Jeremiah Wright for 22 years. The anti-American pastor had been preaching ‘Goddam America’ and that the US was to blame for the 9/11 jihadist attack.
It should also not be forgotten that Obama launched his political career in the home of a radical and terrorist Bill Ayers. Ayers, like so many Marxists, was against the Vietnam War because they wanted Communism to triumph. His association with Ayers was by itself very telling. In his heart of hearts, Obama is a Marxist. Another clue of his inner Marxism was the incident involving ‘Joe the Plumber.’
He told Joe, a small time businessman to ‘spread the wealth around. Its good for everybody.’ Need I remind the reader that this is straight out of Marx’s philosophy?
Marx said, ‘From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.’
So Obama’s decision to unilaterally open the borders by allowing illegals to stay must be seen in this Marxist context. The US is an oppressor nation, taking more than its fair share of world wealth. Obama’s loyalty is not to the US, but to the oppressed people of the world. Also opening the borders will strike a blow against the concept of nationality which Marx wanted to abolish.
What he is doing is unconstitutional and he knows it. House Majority Leader, John Boehner, listed 22 occasions when Obama said amnesty by executive action was illegal. Of course, being a radical, Obama does not care two hoots if his actions are unconstitutional. He has no respect for the constitution.
If he sounded different before it was because he was running for election or his team was facing the 2014 Congressional elections. He wanted to maintain control of the Senate and if possible, regain control of the House of Representatives.
This will make it easier for him to carry out his agenda. With Congressional elections over, he can now be himself. That is why his last two years are going to be the most dangerous for the Republic. He was elected in 2008 promising to change the nation. He meant it in a most radical way.
The last two years will be his last chance to inflict damage to America. By unilaterally granting amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants, he knows he is going to provoke a constitutional crisis. This will encourage more illegal immigration to America. If America is damaged, he does not care. His loyalty is not to America, which he thinks is the major source of oppression in the world, but to the class struggle.
