NYT Columnist Says ‘So-Called REAL Americans’ Are Screwing Up America
Bret Stephens wants to trade Americans for illegals.
Stephens is a self-described “conservative” who writes for the New York Times.
He penned an editorial recently advocating for the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. Those in favor of DACA tend to take the best and brightest of the children of illegals to make their case.
And that’s what Stephen did in his editorial. Why mention the gang-bangers and those who proudly march against America as they wave their Mexican flags? That imagery doesn’t speak to the narrative of those who favor DACA.
Additionally, Stephen suggested in his editorial that he’d gladly take illegal immigrants over “so-called real Americans.”
Stephens specifically mentioned American citizens “who don’t work hard, don’t believe in God, don’t contribute much to society and don’t appreciate the greatness of the American system.”
So in other words, leftists! But that doesn’t appear to be who Stephens meant.
“I speak of Americans whose families have been in this country for a few generations…Complacent, entitled and often shockingly ignorant on basic points of American law and history, they are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects risk drowning.”
Stephens skirts the line.
He knows that people who oppose DACA are mostly Trump-supporters. However, he couches his language to disguise his real ideology.
“Bottom line: So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones: newcomers who are more appreciative of what the United States has to offer, more ambitious for themselves and their children, and more willing to sacrifice for the future. In other words, just the kind of people we used to be — when ‘we’ had just come off the boat.”
Stephens could easily point the finger at black leftists. If anybody has squandered the American Dream it’s black leftists.
Real Americans love the idea of bringing in legal immigrants, just like the ones Stephens mentioned. Instead, leftist policies have brought in drug dealers, sex traffickers, gang-bangers, and even terrorists.
Using children as pawns in the very serious game of national security provides a disservice to the American taxpayer.
The truth is leftists are screwing up America. And I would gladly trade any of them for those who legally want to enter America in pursuit of the American Dream.
