One sign of an imperial government is that it does what it wishes with whole populations. It can shift some here; move some there. It can deport some there; import some here. Who will say “No” when facing armed might? Authoritarian governments can pretty much do what they wish to do.
The motives behind moving whole populations via executive fiat break down into two main categories.
One is to prevent revolution and unrest by moving and quarantining what are considered indigestible peoples in order to weaken their resistance to the powers that be. Thus we find Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon forcing rebellious Jews into exile, there to languish until their return to Jerusalem some seventy years later under the reign of Cyrus the Great. The pattern established by the first diaspora was to be repeated over and over again, a prime example being the exile of the Jews from Spain in 1492 by Isabella and Ferdinand.
Jews (and other peoples) historically have suffered the fates of being stuffed into ghettos, driven from their native countries, sold into slavery, sent to gulags, and crowded into prison camps. Even extermination has been used as a “final solution” to the problem of unwanted peoples.
Such tactics remain ways for any tyrannical government to dispose of people deemed dangerous to the health and power of an almighty state.
But there is a second reason for moving people around, and that is to foster revolution by actively promoting unrest. The goal is to achieve “fundamental transformation” of a country by tearing down existing structures, replacing them with a new order of government.
For instance, during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), rebel army officer Generalissimo Francisco Franco marched on Madrid. The city was a Republican stronghold and critical to Franco’s success. He attacked the city with four columns of troops. But within, according to General Emilio Mola, there was a “fifth column” of what Ernest Hemingway would call “a clandestine group of traitors.” These subversives and saboteurs would rise up against the Loyalists when Franco's fascist insurgents arrived, creating chaos in order to tilt the balance toward Franco. They were determined to undermine the nation’s solidarity by any means at their disposal.
In short, the insertion of subversives into major centers of population would create chaos that would be critical to Franco’s success.
Considering the radical weltanschauung of our administration, committed as it is to open borders and total amnesty, it is not hard to guess that the current influx of immigrants from South America are the equivalent of Franco’s fifth columns.
Of course, the children are unwitting and innocent victims who are being callously used by those committed to achieving an agenda unrealizable by the utilization of constitutionally established institution such as congress. The fact is that the current influx of immigrants into the United States has every appearance of a coordinated effort on the part of our current imperial administration and certain South American governments to bypass congress and immigration law. Every indication is that there is an intention to destroy the borders of our country along with the sovereignty of the states and cities into which the masses of people are being bused and flown to be herded into warehouses, military bases and other facilities.
It’s a brutal and callous move on the part of the Obama cabal. But, then, the Left is notorious for using children to achieve its ends. Liberals know Americans have a soft heart, especially when it comes to little ones. Thank God, every effort will be made to see the innocent are cared for.
The question is, “Why?” Why are these kids being used?
We cannot seriously believe the chief reason masses are being shuttled to our cities is in order they become Democrat voters, thus ensuring political balance of power favorable to the Democrat Party. While children do grow up and eventually become voters, acquiring new Democrats is not the chief reason our borders are being overrun.
The reason for the influx of South American children -- and God only knows who else along with them -- may well be that their importation into the hearts of our towns and cities will prove to be useful fifth columns around which radical groups such as La Raza can rally. Radicals love nothing so much as manufactured crises, which they then put to use for their ends.
In other words, the influx is intentional and is not about to be stopped, particularly since the Obama administration has furloughed ICE agents.
Let’s also not forget the person in charge of the Domestic Policy Council is Cecilia Munoz, a supporter of the DREAM Act and former senior vice president for the radical open-border National Council of La Raza.
According to a Townhall article written by Katie Pavlich:
“Muñoz is an immigration expert who worked for the National Council of La Raza, the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, until she joined the administration in 2009. The group works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans and advocates legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. […]Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.” [Italics mine.]
Pavlich writes that Munoz “is the perfect government bureaucrat for Obama to channel his open-border, pro-amnesty agenda through under the guise of La Raza being a ‘civil rights" organization.’ ”
Is it possible that Munoz, along with other radical open border and amnesty supporters, are behind the current children’s crusade? The children themselves are unwitting fifth columnists, but the radical LaRaza types who attach themselves to the children are not unwitting. They are quite capable of being fifth columns, groups of people who are prepared to act traitorously and subversively out of secret sympathy with enemies of the country in which they live.
The children provide a perfect focal point around which La Raza’s militants can rally. LaRaza will ally themselves to Obama and the federal government as opposed to loyalty to the city and/or state in which they are dropped. Together, the children and radical advocates for Obama’s agenda are the perfect Trojan horses.
In fact, La Raza militants have already arrived in Murrieta, claiming they are there to “protect” the children. The militants have taken up the role of sympathizers with the children and their families, but the alliance is being made in order to give the radicals a legitimate place from which to foment unrest and to promote the cause of an American West returned to its “rightful” owners.
Watch for organizations with innocuous-sounding names like “The Displaced Children’s Center” to be rapidly established. With those types of organizations as cover, and supported by federal funds, La Raza and other disaffected militants also could be aided and abetted by leftist sympathizers within churches -- Catholic and Protestant -- who by reason of Marxist liberation theology have leftist leanings in alignment with the Obama administration. Many churches are dominated by priests and pastors who believe in amnesty and who believe in establishing sanctuary cities committed to protecting peoples they see as refugees from oppression rather than as peoples who have broken the laws of our country or who are invaders without any regard for the due process other immigrants dutifully follow.
In sum, it is hard not to suspect the power of the imperial federal government and its bureaucracies is being used to create a diaspora of radicalized discontents within our cities and towns.
After all, have we not seen this administration hell bent on supporting radical interests wherever they are found, be they in the Middle East or here at home in America?
It remains to be seen if American citizens resist the effort of a radicalized administration to overrule constitutionally-appointed authorities and to destroy state and even national sovereignty -- a nation without borders is no longer a nation.
It is up to the citizens of the United States to see the handwriting on the wall as yet another manufactured crisis is instigated by an administration that just might decide it has to step in to quell by force the very unrest it has created -- just in time to derail the 2014 elections.
