When everything is racist, nothing will be racist. That is where we are headed, and nothing proves that better than Emily Roller in the New York Times. Because the Left is desperate to move the illegal immigration issue from a law and order debate to raaaaaacist (70% of Hispanics vote for Democrats), even a Ted Cruz ad critical of the indifference America’s white wealthy elite show towards the working class is now racist:
Ads From Donald Trump and Ted Cruz Play to Racist Fears …
In another ad released last week, Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign showed a swarm of insurance-commercial-ready actors rushing across a border, their sensible heels getting caught in the sand on their way to stealing American jobs. It was a deft political move on the Cruz campaign’s part — the ad implied the threat of Mexican immigrants without having to show them at all.
The politics of immigration “would be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande, or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press,” Mr. Cruz says in a voice-over. “Then we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation.”
In the 2016 campaign, one thing candidates haven’t been afraid of is embracing fear, especially the fears they can stir up by exaggerating a threat posed by Muslims or by immigrants from Latin America. The intended audience for these ads — white people primed for such tactics — is taken for granted.
How high does the black teen unemployment rate have to get before the elite, white leftists at The New York Times begin to question the cheap illegal labor that takes starter construction jobs from Americans who need them the most?
We know it’s not 30%.
These people care only about power, and if it means flooding the country with illegals that steal jobs from Americans and American immigrants who play by the rules, so be it. If it means assuming the role of rape deniers to cover up the crimes committed by illegals, so be it.
