The liberal talking point is that anyone who wants increased border security is a racist who hates Mexicans. It’s a bit more complex than that, however. So with all this going on, why are the liberals trumpeting racism rather than joining with the right and demanding the federal government secure the border and protect the citizens from invasion?
Well, first of all, they are more concerned with securing the rapidly increasing Mexican vote. With millions of illegals streaming into the country, they want to paint the conservatives as racists. It’s easy for them since it is an argument not based on fact but emotion and doesn’t take a lot of brain power to espouse. This meme, that conservatives are racist, breeds among the non-thinkers because they refuse to accept there might just be another reason.
Secondly, traditionally people south of the border, and I’m not just referring to Mexico, are more open to leftist thinking. Look at the history of socialism in Latin America. This makes them a very desirable group for liberals, since their platform is 90 percent socialist anyway. The more people open to socialism the better as far as they are concerned. They have a country to reinvent.
What do you think? Why do Democrats/liberals trumpet concern for border security as racism? What did I miss?
