The new breed of Democrats as led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the braying old goat Bernie Sanders are hellbent at radically transforming the USA into a borderless teeming socialist cesspool.
There is however a big problem with this goal: it’s impossible.
Fox’s Tucker Carlson skewers the revolutionary dreams of these dangerous ideologues and their useful idiot followers with the inconvenient truth that you can’t have free stuff and then absorb millions of useless eaters and unproductive leeches into the society.
Via Real Clear Politics, “Tucker Carlson: Socialism With Open Borders Is Impossible”:
TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: We just had a vacation, so we’re trying to think a little more broadly about what’s happening in this world. Here’s what we come up with.
If you had to boil down the Democratic Party’s long-term goals to the most important goals, the first would be this, and it’s obvious, the federal government ought to cover the essentials of life for most people, healthcare, college, housing, food, in some cases, a guaranteed basic income.
That’s the program the Democrats espouse. Another word for it might be socialism. The party’s other long-term goal is the elimination of meaningful restrictions on immigration into this country. Get rid of ICE, accept most refugees, give citizenship to tens of millions of people here illegally. In other words, open borders.
So those are the Democrats’ main priorities, a massive social welfare state and millions of new citizens from the third world. Nobody is hiding that.
We’re not making it up. They’re saying it out loud. The problem is that those two goals conflict with each other.
You can either admit the world’s poor into your country or you can give your own people more free stuff, but you can’t do both. The math doesn’t work. Socialism with open borders is impossible. It has never worked and it never will work.
Anyone who thinks about that for about a minute understands it. So, the idea is fatally flawed. The question is how do you sell a program that can never actually work? Well you lie about it. You pretend that what’s obviously true isn’t true at all, and you are evil for thinking otherwise.
And, of course, that’s exactly what they’re doing now. Watch DNC spokesman, Jim Acosta, from earlier this month scold the President for daring to suggest that migrants from the imaginary Caravan, should it actually exists, might try to hop the U.S. border…
They’re not going to be doing that, says Democratic flack Jim Acosta. Turns out, that’s precisely what they’re going to be doing, and just did, over the weekend. American authorities had to shut down the border crossing at San Ysidro, California right next to San Diego after about a 1,000 people tried to rush the crossing…
So, that’s what the DNC channels told us was never going to happen. And, course, it did happen. And it was bad. Mexican Riot Police and the U.S. Border agents both came under attack from the mob, which threw rocks at them.
With no meaningful wall along the borders, authorities used tear gas to disperse the crowd. Now, there is fairly recent precedent for doing that.
In 2013, a group of about a 100 people tried to rush the very same border crossing at San Ysidro. American authorities forced them back with pepper spray. Barack Obama was President at the time. And the incident passed with little notice. Just five years later, there is a new President and an entirely different standard.
The Left erupted at these pictures of the tear gas and accused the Administration of moral atrocities. Hawaii Senator, Brian Schatz, got so worked up he suggested that American authorities had committed a war crime by using illegal chemical weapons.
Keep in mind, the same so-called chemical weapons are used against unruly American citizens all the time, and nobody cares.
But those weren’t American citizens you just saw getting tear-gassed over the weekend. They were migrants. They were holy men on a sacred pilgrimage north. What happened to them was inexcusable. Cue the moral outrage.
Sucks for you liberals, put that in your crack pipes and smoke it.
