Lords of the Underclass
For over 100 years the key to the success of the Democrat party has been Democrats destroying the economic hopes of whole groups of people and then convincing the victims that the Republicans did it.
The current immigration extravaganza is a repeat of the only successful play in the Democrat party playbook; create an underclass of Americans who will vote Democrat -- or not vote at all -- while being blissfully unaware that the reason they are at the bottom of the ladder is Democrat policies.
After the Civil War, Democrats, and Democrat spinoffs like the KKK, stayed in power in the South, even though they were racists and there were lots of potential black voters, by using the strong arm of bigoted laws to keep Blacks where Democrats thought they should be. Democrats got the support of the non-racist whites by painting Blacks as dangerous and too stupid to be left to their own devices.
When the Great Depression started, Democrats feverishly leveraged what they'd learned and figured out an even better way to effectively exploit a whole class of Americans. By demonizing the people who'd brought about the U.S. post-WWI prosperity and by convincing enough Americans that FDR was all that kept them from starving, Democrats managed to get Roosevelt elected 3 times even though the economy didn't get any better -- we can write off his fourth election to the war.
The Democrats convinced Americans that without FDR the country would get even worse; and we all know it's always possible for things to get worse. They made a new underclass, something unheard of in America, who felt that they were entitled to being bailed out not by their fellow Americans but by the government.
It also taught them that a lot of Americans were just as willing to buy the big lie -- without FDR you'd be dead and Republicans only care about the rich -- as the relatives they'd left behind in Europe.
Their amazing success taught Democrats that results don't matter; what matters is that enough people think that the only thing standing between them and no dinner is the Democrat party and that if Republicans got power they'd turn Americans into slaves of demonic Big Business.
Then came the 60's. Blacks were finally getting out from under the thumbs of the racist Democrats. Republicans had integrated the military and forced the South to let blacks get a real education. The Black family was intact and the country was going to start benefiting from the full potential of African-Americans.
But that would be bad news for the Democrats; educated, self-sufficient blacks would spell the end of Democrat political monopolies in so many parts of America, especially the South.
The Democrats went back to their playbook and came up with the "Great Society."
Blacks should have been wary of racist Texans bearing gifts. After all, LBJ explained why he came up with the modern welfare state when he said:
"I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
The basic idea was simple; treat blacks like they couldn't succeed on their own -- which Democrats have believed since Democrats slavery heyday -- keep them in bad schools, and tell them that the KKK was Republican.
If the Democrats really cared about Blacks they would have responded when they saw the collapse of the black family, the utter failure of inner city schools, and astronomical Black unemployment. Instead they simply kept telling blacks that Republicans were devils and that without Democrats blacks would all be virtual slaves again.
When one realizes that the objective of Democrat policies is to keep blacks ignorant and dependent, things that seem to make no sense suddenly become clear.
Why is it Republicans who fight for school choice in the inner cities? It's because Republicans know that blacks are as intelligent as whites and if they can get a decent education they can pull themselves out of poverty.
On the other hand, the last thing Democrats want is educated blacks because those blacks might ask questions like "if Obama cares about us so much how come Black unemployment is nearly twice that of whites?" Uneducated blacks are far more likely to buy in to the Democrat lies about the endemic racism of an America that views Oprah as a savant and that elected a Black president.
Blacks who won't buy into the Democrat's Republicans as bigots meme might start demanding that politicians do something about the disgraceful public-school systems in Democrat run cities not to mention insisting that politicians care as much about the hundreds of Blacks murdered by other Blacks as they do about one black killed by a Hispanic.
To date the Democratic plan to build a permanent underclass of blacks has worked so well that Obama felt perfectly comfortable throwing blacks under the bus repeatedly. Whenever black interests conflicted with those of Hispanics, gays, or anyone else held in high esteem by the Democrats, blacks lost.
For example blacks tend to be religious and as such they reject same-sex marriage by a huge margin. Yet Obama had no problem suddenly endorsing so called same-sex marriage when he thought he needed liberal votes.
But that's small change in an economic sense compared to the impact of the latest Democrat-generated underclass on blacks. A massive influx of legal unskilled workers with poor language skills won't hurt the children of the rich liberals in America but they will be disaster for the blacks crippled by the inner city public school systems.
Now that the Democrats feel that the blacks are sufficiently crushed through poor education and propaganda the Democrats are moving to create a new underclass, illegal... err, undocumented aliens.
If America really needs lots of immigrants it would make sense to pick the most honest and competent foreigners who want to make America home. Yet since Kennedy changed the immigration laws in 1965 Democrats have been hell bent on getting as many unskilled people immigrate to America as possible.
This has culminated in the constant Democrat support for illegals from Mexico. The simple fact is that the vast majority of illegals broke the law in order to make more money; no different than Bernie Madoff though Bernie stole a lot less than illegals do as a group. Most illegals are not strangers who deserve help anymore than the thief who breaks into your house is deserving of a nice serving of milk and cookies. Illegals redeeming value as a group from the perspective of Democrats is that legalized illegals will vote Democrat.
But that's all Democrats care about. They know that by keeping Hispanics poorly educated and ghettoized -- which is why Democrats fiercely oppose any attempt to require citizens much less illegals to learn English -- they can count on their votes just like they can count on 90+% of Blacks voting for the party of George Wallace.
The media-public school/Democrat complex -- far more dangerous than the military industrial complex -- have managed to ensure that Democrats are never associated with the consequences of their mistakes and that Republicans are always blamed for them instead.
Whenever a group of Americans think that Democrats are all that stand between them and hunger and that Republicans are the ones that put them into those dire straits they will vote Democrat no matter what the reality is.
