One of the items he exposes is the real truth behind the push for amnesty for illegal aliens. It’s much more about political gains than about the well-being of those people “hiding in the shadows.”
What’s amazing to many on the right is that pro-amnesty Republicans are trying to convince their conservative base to support the push for amnesty because Hispanic voters are a “natural Republican constituency.” According to research, Hispanics are and support Democrats. That’s it. Nothing complicated. Nothing horribly deep. Just observable facts.
And the progressive left is taking advantage of Hispanics’ preference for the Democratic Party by not only pushing for amnesty for illegals but also with increased voter registration among Hispanics in America legally. Which makes sense, since, according to Pew Research, nearly 10 million Hispanics live in Texas, and that translates to 38 percent of the state’s population. Additionally, 50 percent of the Hispanic population is under 18. If one party can capture the hearts—and votes—of the younger Hispanics, it would conceivably have a self-sustaining base for decades.
So, how much of a lead do Democrats have over Republicans among Hispanics? Take a look at this graphic from TheBlaze Magazine based on Gallup polling research:
As Opelka explains:
The independent Gallup polling agency has monitored political leanings among various groups, and their data has long confirmed the perceived reality that Hispanics support Democrats in great numbers.
A November 2013 national study from Gallup reveals that U.S. Hispanic adults are more than twice as likely to identify as or lean Democratic than Republican.
According to the Gallup report, 50 percent of Hispanics identified as or leaned Democratic, just over a fifth (22 percent) identified with or leaned toward the GOP, and 21 percent were wholly independent with no preferences for either party.................................
Party preference surveys among registered Hispanic voters also show a loyalty that should cause real concern among Republicans. The same Gallup survey shows that, among Hispanic voters, Democrats hold a 32-point advantage (58-26) over Republicans...........................
“Their goal has been to turn Texas blue through a massive amnesty while continuing the efforts to bring untold numbers more into the country illegally. Through no fault of their own, people who do not go through the process of learning about our American form of government do not understand what it takes to preserve freedom and liberty and how critical fair enforcement of the rule of law is. It is imperative that we first secure the border before even discussing repair to our legal immigration system. Giving blanket amnesty to millions here illegally would be disastrous for our state and nation.”
Revised: Texas Schools - More Anti-US Propaganda
This is only a follow-up to a post from a few weeks ago. When I saw the above article, I wanted to put it with the earlier one, but decided that it would not be seen if I merely did. a revision.
"A Texas mom is furious after discovering that her son’s school is teaching students that the United States is partly to blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.
Kara Sands, of Corpus Christi, Texas, took to her Facebook and posted photos of the test administered by Flour Bluff Intermediate School. The test reportedly covered content in a video fifth-grade students watched in class.
Of all the questions about the 9/11 attacks, Sands was most disturbed by question three:
“Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” The answer? “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.' "
* I later thought about the chorus of jeers that would make fun of Texans for not being 'cultured'. My point was that Texas, like Athens was, is terribly crucial in the scheme of protecting our nation as a free country. As for being cultured goes, I would rather be associated with good-hearted people with common sense and bit of fear of God than a cosmopolitan jerk who plays the iconoclast against everything that is good.
The Left desperately wants the electoral votes* of the Lone Star State, and they are working at a feverish pace to get the job done.
*Leftists decry the assignment of the electoral votes as it was designed to offset the natural electoral power of the most populous states. Today the highly-urbanized states are almost in a position to carry a national election by themselves. While Leftists hate the fact that the electoral college exists, they are fully aware of how it works, and they have every intention of getting Texas under their control. Once they are successful they will surely change their tune and extol the virtues of the electoral college.
One method is to dilute the electorate by importing so many people from markedly different cultures that assimilation or integration into the culture of the host nation is impossible.
Working in parallel with the former is the just as effective but far more insidious technique of excising all understanding of a people's or nation's sense of identity. Primary school textbooks are doctored to contain Leftist views of history, admirable people and events from a nation's past are left out, and the students grow up knowing next to nothing about how their society and nation came to be. Products of this Leftist kulturkampf leave high schools in a sponge-like state, ready for the heavy doses of anti-western propaganda's of college.
It is working. High school seniors are already telling their parents that they would get rid of imperialist/colonialist holidays such as Thanksgiving if they could. Not only have I read numerous accounts of similar incidents, but I personally know of this occurring in New Jersey. These young people are or will soon be of voting age, and they will likely be no friends of American society and virtue. Having been fed a steady diet of anti-western/American lessons, they will utter no peep of protest when their children are subjected to the same brainwashing.
The top links are recent reports of events in Texas schools. The first concerns a Spanish class in which the teacher apparently felt that Spanish literature offered nothing of value, so the students were required to recite the Mexican national anthem and pledge of allegiance. Cervantes and others can be conveniently ignored.
The second reports on students that were given a more interesting assignment:.
"Parents are demanding answers after a Texas teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and told the class to refer to Muslim terrorists as freedom fighters.
"A curriculum system used across the state of Texas reportedly includes a lesson plan for 6th graders instructing students to create a flag for a “new socialist nation” using “symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism.”
The following was taken from the CSCOPE curriculum lesson plan: “Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?' "
Today, we have yet another report of the goings-on in Texas, and it is a comprehensive and voluntary self-indictment of those who are making all of this happen:
-Excerpts from the link above:
Bolding is added.
"In February, Texas announced that the state, along with the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum (TESCCC,) would enact major changes to the controversial curriculum management system dubbed CSCOPE. The system received a litany of complaints from faculty members and parents alike concerning its lack of transparency(parents were allegedly not permitted to review lesson-plans), lack of oversight from the State Board of Education, and for allegedly imposing oppressive working conditions for faculty members.....
To note just how off-color some of the CSCOPE curriculum is, consider that the Texas CSCOPE Review, an independent watchdog group, uncovered an out-of-date, optionalCSCOPE lesson-plan on terrorism — “World History Unit 12 Lesson 07″ — which allegedly likens the Boston Tea Party to “an act of terrorism.”
Using a chart, Barton documented and mapped out core CSCOPE material, which eliminates national values, Americanism or rather, American exceptionalism, the study of federalism and majority rule (the core of our constitution) along with patriotic symbols like the Liberty Bell. Christopher Columbus, Rosh Hashanah and Christmas are all relegated to the dustbin along with American military history. Equality and a belief in justice is replaced by “fairness” and instruction on American propaganda and imperialism.
Disturbingly, Beck and Barton noted that the worst is yet to come. Showcasing a lesson plan for grades 1-3, Barton revealed CSCOPE’s list of “heroes,” which comprises a dozen secular progressives and only three conservatives or political moderates."
It gets worse:
"According to a previous report from TheBlaze, teachers complained that they were expected to deliver the curriculum verbatim and only on days allotted by the CSCOPE lesson plan. Even if students were unable to absorb the lesson, teachers were allegedly directed to progress to the next lesson regardless. TheBlaze also reported that teachers were “asked to sign a contract that would prevent them from revealing what was in the CSCOPE lessons or face civil and criminal penalties.' ".................
In The Spirit of Laws, by Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu*, the author repeatedly stresses that the primary means by which a republic can survive is if the people have a love of their country. Without this, the republic will fail.
No system of government lasts forever. We currently live under the longest-lasting Constitution in the world. That is a major achievement and a credit to those who crafted it and later defended it when our nation was threatened with collapse. We cannot, however, continue to cling to it if it is no longer what it was intended to be. I would rather lay it to rest honorably than live with it as a facade of a government animated by Leftist thought.
We still, barely, have the power to create a restored American republic comprised of the states that are not already lost. Our children deserve to learn about our history in a manner than makes them proud of our nation.
