I WAS BORN HERE | 2004-11-27
I am not an American because I embrace a set of words. I am an American because I was born here.
Those who criticize Robert Redford for saying he wants to leave America had better take a look at their own behavior.
The World War II generation said it fought for "America." Then, when people told them America is just "a nation of immigrants," they did what the World War II Greatest Generation always did. They said, "DUUH!" and all nodded yes.
According to our Constitution, according to the very first words of the Constitution, anybody who comes here is allowed to do so at the convenience of "We the People" who were here in 1789 and "OUR Posterity."
In THAT America, nobody has the right to be here or to any rights under our Constitution except "We the People." The Glorious, Wonderful, Heroic World War II Greatest Generation gave that away.
They say America is a nation of immigrants. People born here have no more right to be here than anybody else on earth. America is just a set of words. If people of Chinese descent believe those words better than the people inside America's borders, then those Chinese have more right to be here than the ones who were born here.
And the Greatest Generation looked the guy who had just taken their country away from them straight in the eye and said, "Yes, Master."
I said above, "According to our Constitution, according to the very first words of our Constitution, anybody who comes here is allowed to do so at the convenience of 'We the People' who were here in 1789 and 'OUR Posterity.'"
Under the Constitution as written by the Wall Street Journal and Robert Redford, I am betraying their America. In Redford's America, every Mexican has as much right to be here as I do, PLUS affirmative action.
You know all those complicated procedures we have to go through to send Mexicans back to Mexico?
Mexico has no such procedures for anybody they don't want there.
