America No Longer Capable of Defending Civilization

RECEIVED Mon., April 3, 2006

Dear Editor,
    The furor over illegal immigration brings to mind the wisdom of W.C. Fields reflected in the title Never Give a Sucker an Even Break. Never has there been a better example of overt political subterfuge as the illegal-immigration fiasco. Contrary to the keystone cop blame game of U.S. and Latin American politicians, this entire problem originates in the cultural cesspool that is Mexico and Latin America in general facilitated by decades of neo-leftist social and political utopianism emanating from America. If this continues, in the near future America will become a Third World entity.
    This problem now gravely exposes America and humanity to the horror of tyranny and destitution because America will no longer be capable of defending civilization. And of course this is in addition to the mortal threat posed by al Qaeda, Iranian Mullahs, et al. having open access to America to further their genocidal goals of annihilating the center of Western culture. Neo-leftist Democrats will be primarily responsible and moderate Republicans a close second.
    We must condemn the current Latin American leaders who encourage their citizens to invade the U.S., support those who emulate American liberty, keep neo-leftist Democrats away from American political power, and elect conservative Republicans to national office who will vigorously defend our sovereign borders.
    The sad truth is that Washington and Latin American politicians are attempting to blame others for this problem – from denying the disastrous economic conditions of Latin America to the poor souls escaping their wretched countries to the American business owners and people who naïvely hire them. To the contrary, political leaders in Washington, Mexico, and Latin America are totally responsible for causing and solving this nightmarish social problem. Unfortunately, they are deceptively playing their citizens as suckers by attempting to shift responsibility away from them. If we allow it to continue, we truly do not deserve an even break.

   [Editor's response: Gosh and we thought this was a mostly made-up problem because all the ranter right wingers who need some enemy suddenly don't want to talk about Iraq. When the Irish and Italians immigrated to the U.S., many wise xenophobes such as yourself issued almost exactly the same warnings about the end of American civilization. Keep up the good work!]
