    Default A REALLY stupid idea

    This editorial from yesterday's Washington Post or as our good friend Bob Gutermuth calls it, the Washington ComPost, really takes the cake for stupid libtard ideas. Even from a Georgetown U. professor:

    So far, the American response to the tragedy in Haiti has been exactly what you'd expect, and in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake that ravaged the nation on Jan. 12, such rapid assistance is precisely what is needed. But over the long term, there is another step, one that may be less obvious or popular, that we must take. It would vastly improve the living standards of the Haitian people, and if we had taken it earlier, it could have lessened the death toll of the quake.
    That's right, let's lay a guilt trip on everyone who's opened their wallets and donated an unprecedented amount of money, because it's not enough; after all, it's all the fault of U.S. filthy imperialist policies that so many died, never mind Haiti's been an independent country for over 200 years.

    After the earthquake, the Obama administration quickly suspended the deportation of Haitians already residing illegally in the United States (a population estimated at 100,000 to 200,000) for 18 months. That's a wise and welcome step, but an insufficient one.

    ... Haitians willing to emigrate today would typically experience vast and immediate increases in their standard of living and security -- a goal the administration no doubt supports. That is why so many have been willing to leave Haiti, braving ocean blockades and other risks, even before the quake. Between 1982 and 2009, the U.S. Coast Guard stopped 114,716 Haitians on their way to the United States, forcing them to go back, and such unsuccessful attempts must certainly have deterred an even larger number from even trying to leave. Last March, 51 percent of Haitians polled told Gallup that, given the opportunity, they would leave their country permanently.

    ... the United States is complicit in the agony many Haitians are now suffering.

    After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in 2005, one of the principal ways its victims helped themselves was by leaving. Katrina prompted one of the biggest resettlements in American history. Who would have blocked Interstate 10 with armed guards, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to suffer in the disaster zone, no matter how much assistance was coming in from outside? (maybe because the Katrina vicitms were U.S. citizens? Ya think?)
    Enjoy the whole steaming crock of jenkem here:

    Yes, let's let all the Haitians that want to come to the U.S. in; we owe it to them because they're poor. Using that reasoning we'd have to open the gates to let anyone move to the U.S. just because they come from a poor country and we owe it to them to raise their standard of living. Let's see, that would be about 95 percent of all the countries in the world... yeah, great idea.

    I wonder what percentage of our new immigrants will be HIV positive.

    Actually the African country Senegal offered free land to any Haitian that would move there, but I haven't heard of any mass immigration of Haitians to Senegal.

    Why would they when the USA is going to give them everything?

    Why live in Senegal when they can live in Orlando or Seattle?

    Just more burden for tax payers, the people that work for a livivng!

    Of course, with elections being not to far down the road, the Dems need all the votes they can buy.

    Apparently the Clemens article has raised quite a stink, with over 300 negative reactions and only a handful of liberal bleeding hearts in support. I didn't see it but apparently that trilateral pimp Elliott Abrams also penned an op ed piece promoting an open door policy to Haitian immigration to the U.S.

    This blog calls it a Haiti 9/11 type opportunity for the open borders crowd (imagine the fun Acorn could have registering all these new citizens to vote!)

    Abrams says that we should admit a “substantial” number of Haitians…His clear suggestion is that we should raise the number of Haitians in the U.S. from the present 500,000 to at least the Salvadoran level of 1.5 million. Meaning that we should immediately bring a million Haitians into this country…
    Abrams’s policy has nothing to do with either American well being (even conceived in liberal terms) or American inclusion.

    It is a policy of pure self-sacrifice for the sake of another country. We let Third-Worlders come here, not because they have ANYTHING to do with us, not because they will ASSIMILATE into our culture, not because they will CONTRIBUTE to our economy, not because they will EXPAND and ENRICH our diversity, but because they will help enrich (or rather marginally raise the abysmal poverty level of) the Third World hell hole from which they come. Indeed, any notion that the immigrants should be loyal to America or be committed to America is excluded from the start, since the whole idea is that the immigrants come here in order to help their home country….

    By Abrams’s altruistic reasoning, we should admit, not just a million Haitians into America, but also 1.5 million people from each of the (8 poorest African) countries into America. That is, we should immediately allow into America 13 million...

    We should turn America into a workers’ transit hotel for the poorest countries on earth.
    That’s what the neocons–who constantly effuse about how much they “love” America–want to do to America
    Unfortunately, it is not just the Neocons we need to fear here – it is the wishes of the Obama Administration with which they are currying favor. The appearance of basically the same article twice in three days in a leftist bastion like The Washington Post means one thing: this crazy piece of treason has powerful backers.
