Obama’s deferral of deportation of up to 5 million illegals won’t change America overnight. However, if allowed to proceed without any real opposition, it will accelerate the long and slow decline of the USA into a Central American Banana Republic.
The facts of the policy are as follows: Obama issued an executive order that extends “deportation protection” for up to 5 million illegal aliens currently residing inside the United States. Those that qualify are immigrants that have been inside the US for more than 5 years, have no criminal record (other than breaking immigration law, of course) and have children that are citizens, meaning those that plopped out a baby after crossing the border. Also covered are 300,000 or so immigrants that were children when their parents brought them over the border illegally. This group of people will be allowed to stay indefinitely, will have a chance to get work visas, a chance to get permanent legal residency and in some cases even a chance to get social security numbers.
There are two fundamental issues that right wingers of various stripes should take with this executive action: one is in regard to the demographic situation in the USA, the other is in regard to legal precedent.

Or maybe you would. These sorts of things have become rather predictable after all. In case you missed it, earlier this week a video of a large-breasted, stumpy-legged, Jewess named Shoshana B. Roberts waddling around Manhattan and getting harassed by various vibrant individuals went viral on the internet. What started out as a fairly straightforward attempt at rent-seeking inadvertently revealed some uncomfortable truths about the racial demographics of street harassment in urban America.
The outbreak of drunken rioting and property destruction by spoiled, petty bourgeois, white, New England college kids at the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH yesterday has led to a triumphant hashtag campaign by liberal twitter activists. These astute social crusaders and moral relativists have discovered the blatant hypocrisy that lies behind the system of white supremacy in America. Why, they ask, were these raucous white youths treated differently than Michael Brown? Why do they get a slap on the wrist, when Brown got six bullets? Where, they ask in particularly smarmy and insufferable gloating tones, is the white outrage? Why are these youths burning their own communities? Truly these heroic and gallant social warriors are teaching us a lesson in privilege and making us challenge our own assumptions about race. Or not.
