Nancy Pelosi: I think I know why the Republicans won’t bring up immigration

posted at 8:51 pm on April 10, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

Three guesses, ya’ll.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday blamed racial issues for the GOP’s failure to act on comprehensive immigration legislation.

“I think race has something to do with the fact that they’re not bringing up an immigration bill,” the California Democrat told reporters at her regular weekly press conference. “I’ve heard them say to the Irish, ‘If it were just you, this would be easy.’”

Pelosi was responding to a question about whether race factors into how Republicans deal with members of the Obama administration. She accused Republicans of being generally disrespectful to members of the administration and to women.

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill later clarified that the reported GOP comment about the Irish has been relayed to Pelosi a number of times by Irish immigration activists she’s met with.

I realize she was asked a specific question about the made-up racial implications of Holder-Gohmert exchange earlier this week, but whyyy did she have to immediately respond with the other ways in which she pretends to think Republicans are oh so racist and sexist? …I suppose relentlessly demagoguing the crap out of Republicans is practically in her job description, and we’ve long established that intellectual honesty isn’t really her thing — and since illegal immigration is the next big-ticket item on her pre-midterm docket with which to hammer Republicans while distracting from ObamaCare and energizing a blasé base, why not take every opportunity to make Republicans look as morally repugnant as possible despite the availability of other, more valid criticisms? Makes sense.

The California Democrat does not wield the speaker’s gavel anymore, but she’s hitting the road to bring attention to immigration, which she calls her top legislative priority. In recent weeks, she’s pitched an overhaul to audiences from Miami to Los Angeles to Laredo, Texas.

The Pelosi immigration road show is unfolding as the issue remains on the back burner in the Republican-controlled House. …

“It’s the biggest thing that we can do, and that’s why I’ve said to the speaker, to the press, to these groups, I would rather pass [a] comprehensive immigration reform bill than win the elections in November,” Pelosi said during the 30-minute interview. “There’s nothing we could accomplish in winning that would be as big as passing immigration reform.”

Yeah, you f*cking moron, the House GOP is against immigration reform because they are racists or something.

Riddle me this, Maerose, I am a naturalised citizen and very white. There are a lot like me and even more waiting. Do House Republicans hate white people, too?

One day – probably too late, race-baiters are going to realise that if everything is racist, then nothing is. The race card has been so devalued during the Obama administration alone that one hopes that the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t actually a train.

Obama does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise him.

Holder does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise him.

Cummings does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise him.

Sharpton does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise him.

Sheila Jackson-Lee does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise her.

Jesse Jackson does something wrong or lies?

It’s racist to criticise him.

Mr A Republican says or does something, he’s a racist.

Mrs Conservative believes in something, she’s a racist.

Ms Libertarian opposes Obamacare just like she does the NHS (and would have HillaryCare, McCainCare, NixonCare, TrumanCare, TeddyRooseveltCare, etc), she’s a racist…for real.

And, so on…

I know so many people – on both sides of the aisle – who now roll their eyes when someone whips out the race card.

Two points here.

There isn’t an immigration bill in the works. There is an ILLEGAL immigration bill being pushed. Nothing about our immigration laws are included in these schemes to provide amnesty for the parasitic underclass already in this nation.

Secondly, let’s ask Pelosi to name the “them” who were talking to the Irish.

The Truth At Last! Peter Mandelson Admits Labour ‘Sent Out Search Parties’ To Bring Migrants Here After Losing The Votes Of The Working Class

Immigration & The Town That Stopped Mincing Words

A Fair Warning To Those Promoting Open Borders, Amnesty, & Free Immigration

By the way, Maerose, you’d better be careful and pay close attention to what happened to FORMER PM Gordon Brown when he called a LIFE-LONG LABOUR VOTER a ‘bigot’ for complaining about the massive immigration from those ‘brown’ and ‘black’ countries…like Poland and Romania.

The game is up in the UK. Middle class, blue-collar, and many union voters, who once made up Labour’s base, abandoned them because they did EXACTLY what Democrats are doing: abandoning them first and replacing them with cheap labour, uneducated, and dolers (who can even get welfare sent to their families back in the ‘Old Country’).

Even Ed the Red (no, he doesn’t have red hair), the Labour leader, has given speeches, along with most of his deputies, admitting that immigration is a big problem, it isn’t racist to worry about or criticise it, and have promised to address it should they win in 2015 (despite Muffin’s massive ineptitude and arrogance, that will take a bloody miracle on scale with Bernie Sanders beating HRC and the Republican nominee in 2016…almost certainly ain’t happening…and even diehard Labour loyalists publicly call Miliband and Labour ‘complete disasters’ in the press).

I hope you’re right but I fear that Red son of an outspoken Marxist (and the crazier of the two sons even!) still has a fair chance to become Prime Minister, for the sole reason that the “conservative” opposition has gone full squish. They don’t need to worry about reclaiming Blair’s coalition of voters when Cameron cares little to offer a clear alternative.

Even more of a reminder to us over here, the Socialists are horrible, but they never get anywhere until the squishes on our side yield the fight. The hardworking blue collar base has abandoned the Democratic party here… but they’ve proven they won’t show for weak GOP leadership either. They’re ripe for the picking – the entire Midwest the electoral prize – but old geezers in the GOP who should have retired decades ago are leaving them to rot on the vine.

Don’t know. Miliband really shouldn’t stand a chance. Yet nothing indicated that our SCOAMF should receive a 2nd term either, yet here we are.

As it is, they will get bytch-slapped next month in the EU elections. UKIP is poised to win with even many Labour voters heading to Farage. UKIP can’t win a general election, but it could play a big role in ’15. Both parties have abandoned their bases and treated them like ginger-headed step-children. UKIP could wind up playing the powerbroker role in forming a coalition government should that be necessary.

Bottom line:

Conservatives factor race into any decision 5-10%.
Republicans factor race into any decision 15-25%.
democrats factor race into any decision 75-85%.
Progressives (i.e. fascists) factor race into any decision 100%.

Now which groups are the racists? The republicans are only that high because they are afraid of democrats, progressives, and the media (birm, birm) make them so scared they have to.

The racists are all in the democrat party always have been always will be. One can common sense that it is true now because the democrat fascists are constantly telling us they are not but just look at any liberal city or state to prove that wrong.

‘… we actually have real-life examples to look at in conducting a cost-benefit analysis. To begin with, we can look at the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. Its supporters assured Americans that immigration would be miniscule and would never change the demographics of the United States.

On 10 February 1965 during a hearing of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalisation of the Committee on the Judiciary, Senator Edward Kennedy, the bill’s sponsor, said:

‘First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia … In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think…The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.

At the same hearing, Secretary of State Dean Rusk said:

‘The present estimate, based upon the best information we can get, is that there might be, say, 8,000 immigrants from India in the next five years … I don’t think we have a particular picture of a world situation where everybody is just straining to move to the United States … There is not a general move toward the United States.’

Senator Hiram Fong (R-HI) said:

‘Asians represent six-tenths of 1 percent of the population of the United States … with respect to Japan, we estimate that there will be a total for the first 5 years of some 5,391 … the people from that part of the world will never reach 1 percent of the population …Our cultural pattern will never be changed as far as America is concerned.’

Attorney General Robert F Kennedy said:

‘I would say for the Asia-Pacific Triangle it [immigration] would be approximately 5,000, Mr. Chairman, after which immigration from that source would virtually disappear; 5,000 immigrants would come the first year, but we do not expect that there would be any great influx after that.’

On 25 August 1965, Representative Sidney Yates, (D-IL), said:

‘I am aware that this bill is more concerned with the equality of immigrants than with their numbers. It is obvious in any event that the great days of immigration have long since run their course. World population trends have changed, and changing economic and social conditions at home and abroad dictate a changing migratory pattern.’

How far off were the above and their fellow immigration reform followers with their estimates? By 1968 — when the law fully took effect — the 1965 level of 290,697 had increased to 454,448, ‘only’ a 56 percent increase.

There were some Republicans that warned of the consequences, but two Democrats, in my opinion, nailed it…

Senator Eugene McCarthy (D-MN), the 1968 Democratic Presidential nominee, said:

The United States cannot regain its competitive standing in the world by importing low wage workers from other countries. On the one hand, it engenders conditions this country cannot and should not tolerate. On the other hand, in the modern age, a nation’s wealth and prosperity is secured by high worker productivity and capital investment, not by the availability of low-wage labour.’

And, Theodore White, the American political journalist, historian, and novelist, Kennedy family intimate, coiner of the term “Camelot” to describe the Kennedy Administration, and author of America in Search of Itself: The Making of the President, said:

‘The immigration Act of 1965 changed all previous patterns, and in so doing, probably changed the future of America … [it] was noble, revolutionary – and probably the most thoughtless of many acts of the Great Society.’

So, despite assurances from Washington, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 DID flood American cities with immigrants and change the ethnic mix of the United States, immigration DID far outpace the predictions made by the Washington elite, and the ‘great days of immigration’ were FAR FROM OVER.

“Race…Racism…Racist..Race…” That’s the top DNC / Liberal offense and defense. Republicans need to respond…and it wouldn’t be hard to do so.

1. The United States has an Immigration Law and a Legal Path to citizenship. Millions of people who want to come to this country, be part of this country, contribute to better this country, to succeed in this country, and they do it the right way.

2. There are millions of Illegals in this country that did not / do not respect our laws enough to adhere to our laws, who have already disrespeted us by breaking our laws in order to come here and ‘feed’ like locusts on our tax-dolar-funded social programs and take jobs away from Americans.

3. America has already given millions of Illegals ‘Amnesty’ while promising to secure the borders so this situation would never arise again. Years later, here we are again with the same problem. Once again NOW, Liberals are demanding we grant Amnesty to over 11 more million Illegals with nothing more but that same hollow, proven false, promise of closing the borders to ensure it never happens again. Conservatives have agreed in principle to Amnesty RIGHT AFTER THE BORDER IS SECURED…and Liberals flatly rejected it….because they don’t WANT to EVER close the borders.

4. Want to talk about Illegals, Nancy?
- Why don’t we start with the fact that Obama has demonstrated he doesn’t care about Illegals, as he allowed his own Aunt who was here illegally to remain here without even TRYING to begin the necessary paperwork to legally stay here?

- Why don’t we talk about how Obama ordered Atty General Holder NOT to arrest, charge, sentence, jail, or deport any Illegal who commits crimes less than a ‘Felony’ (which would be less than what Holder has done – Perjury before Congress? That basically means President Obama has ADDED HIS OWN ‘RIGHT’ to the Bill of Rights, one that ONLY applies to ILLEGALS – NON-Citizens. AMERICANS don’t have the right to violate any law below that of ‘Felony’ and NOT face any punishment at all. And Holder has been guilty of ENFORCING this Un-Constitutiona addition/law.Obama should be Impeached, and Hol;der should be removed from his position as ATTY General and put in jail for his Perjuries.

- We KNOW there are illegals here ‘living in the shadows’…we also know there are terrorists cells here in the US who got in the same way Illegals have – through porous borders and past a government that isn’t trying to really stop them or even slow them down. For instance…WHY DO OUR TAX DOLLARS GO TO PAY FOR A TEAM IN MEXICO TEACHING ILLEGALS HOW TO SIGN UP FOR FOOD STAMPS, SOCIAL SECURITY, UNEMPLOYMENT, WELFARE, ETC ONCE THEY GET INTO THE U.S., MS. PELOSI?

Want to CONTINUE to talk about this subject or just tell us we do not have the right to know what the government is doing regarding our Immigration laws the government is HELPING Illegals to break?

Not entirely true. Muffin stand loud and proud for SSM and climate change.

It’s enough to make you long for the days of the Iron Lady.

Fair enough, I’ll yield to that. And I’ve wanted the days of the Iron Lady since the days of Teflon Tony, but I see nobody on the horizon that’s even halfway there…

Still wondering: After his Congressional Shellacking, would Holder have run over to an Hispanic event and whined like that?

Immigration. It’s affordable, affordable, affordable. It’s not Obamagration. It’s the Affordable Immigration Act.

Nancy Pelosi: Who in our country would not want to change a policy of kicking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families? It must be stopped… What value system is that? I think it’s un-American. I think it’s un-American

Nancy Pelosi: I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment. It’s really a black mark.”

Nancy Pelosi: I believe that if [immigration] status is the violation, then that should not be even in the scheme of things as to whether somebody would be deported or else you would be deporting 11 million people, which doesn’t make any sense

Nancy Pelosi – friend of lawbreakers.

It is apparent that the longer some of these politicians stay in Washington DC the sillier they get.
