Someone in email, referencing a VDH article about the immigration issue:
Seems the most intelligent man on earth doesn’t have a problem with the term "illegal."
I should care? Hansen is educated and smart. He’s right about the terrorist threat–but that’s because Hansen is a war historian. Read any of his history books, like Carnage & Culture? I have. You can borrow it. Here, he’s out of his element and his league, in spite of his book Mexifornia. Hansen understands culture and geopolitics. He understands might and the power of the state and how the big events in history come to pass. I don’t know if he understands the sovereignty of individual rights as they ought to be understood.
Look, I’m right, even if I’m the only goddamned person in the world saying it. I don’t give a damn who says otherwise, or how many there are.
There’s one word that blasts the concept of legality out of the water, completely and totally: slavery. Think about it.
I got this, yesterday:
The word "illegal" is the key word here!!!
No, it’s not. That’s a cop out, and I think you know it. And uttering it makes just about anyone who does an abject hypocrite. You ever break the speed limit? Ever ride the Harley without a helmet on a back road where the risk is minimal, and if not, is it out of respect for a stupid nanny-state law, or just fear of paying a fine?
How many other laws do you bend or break?
What’s your view on tax laws? Are they perfectly just, because they are laws, or is taxation tantamount to theft and you comply because you don’t want the IRS trashing your life like Guido might torch your store in "the neighborhoods" if you don’t pay for his "protection?"
Are you telling me that you don’t know the difference between right and wrong, only between legal and illegal?
So, tell me this. Why persist with the legal/illegal BULLSHIT? I’ll tell you why: because you can’t make an argument for why it’s right to keep an honest guy from crossing the border to make an honest living, that’s why. If any of you were capable of making an argument about why the honest workers are wrong to come here, you’d do it in a heartbeat. But you can’t, so you hide behind loaded slurs like "illegal."
