Exposing Anti-Immigration Reform Motives and Canards

Matt K. Lewis, Daily Caller, June 20, 2013

My colleague (and alter ego) Mickey Kaus has asked his readers to create videos pushing back against immigration reform. It’s an innovative idea, but also one fraught with danger, inasmuch as it exposes their true motives. The first video is in.

Here are a couple of screen grabs, with my commentary below:

Kennedy

First, I don’t care what Ted Kennedy said in 1965. Second, I couldn’t care less about preserving the “ethnic mix” of America.

To paraphrase what Rev. Samuel Rodriguez said at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference, conservatism isn’t about conserving pigmentation, it’s about ideas. As long as America is free and virtuous, honors the rule of law, and advances the values of Western Civilization, why does ethnicity matter?

And why is this being pointed out, anyway?

Census

It’s fun to fear monger the fact that whites will likely lose majority status, but it’s hard to blame immigrants when white Americans are dying faster than they are having babies. The problem, of course, is that whites have stopped having babies. (So get to it!)
