Ed Schultz has Rep Luis Gutierrez on his show and quotes poll results which show Americans to be in opposition to the illegal Obama amnesty by a margin of 48 percent to 38 percent.
He asks the Obama pitch man for some spin, which he is more than happy to provide and is why he’s there in the first place. Obama is clearly going to take the illegal action. It’s the job of Gutierrez and others, just as in obamacare, to go out and persuade “the stupid people” of America to accept something that they don’t want and that they know is bad for them and their nation.
Gutierrez says, “Well first of all, the American people have not been explained what kind of executive authority and what the implications are for tens of millions of American families across the nation. I think once the ‘president’ has an opportunity to explain it those numbers are going to go up.”
Actually he’s been explaining this for six years, unsuccessfully and the authority resides with Congress. If he were acting within the Constitution, he wouldn’t be being called an emperor and he wouldn’t be being challenged in the courts.
As for the tens of millions of American families that Gutierrez is talking about, those are illegal alien families squatting in America, who have anchor babies thrown into the mix. They are performing exactly the function that they are supposed to perform, providing a premise through which to circumvent the immigration system.
He says, “Let’s remember, this takes courage. It took courage for President Truman, in 1948 to say we beat fascism in Europe and we beat fascism in Asia, now it is time to desegregate the armed forces of the United States. But as we look back at that decision by President Truman we only think about the courage and thankfulness we have in our hearts that he showed the courage. And that is the same exact way this decision of the ‘president’ is going to be seen.”
It takes courage to rob a bank too, but that doesn’t make it right. What does Nazi fascism have to do with desegregation and when did Japanese Emperor Hirohito come to be viewed as a fascist? The American wannabe emperor could be defined as a fascist quite easily, but not Hirohito.
There is another important distinction that the Obama pitchman fails to make. Desegregation involved American citizens, with the rights of American citizens, who belonged in the United States. Not a bunch of squatters trying to illegal occupy space until we give in to their demands.
Looking back on Obama in history will depend upon whether the nation survives in its present form. If Obama is successful and it is destroyed, he will be able to control the history and write himself as a great leader. If our nation survives, he will be seen in a much less favorable, more criminally treasonous light. This point in time will be a prominent depiction either way.
