Phyllis Schlafly says amnesty is suicide for Republicans

Phyllis Schlafly writes :

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new potential voters by 2036, a large share of whom will favor the left. To allow this to happen will make Republicans a permanent minority party.
Looking at the political motivation of the groups pushing higher immigration and amnesty, it’s obvious that the Democrats promote large-scale immigration because it produces more Democratic votes.

  1. Ah… DUH! We can thank Ms. Schlafly for this blinding flash of the obvious.

    • It is obvious for people like us, but it’s helpful when the dark side of immigration is made plain to readers in various news outlets. Once Romney lost, the mainstream media went into full on attack mode, claiming that the Republicans are, wait for the cliche, “out of touch” for not endorsing immigration reform. A dissenting voice by Ms. Schlafly is not especially significant, but it is heartening to see articles opposing the current propaganda wave pop up.

    • She was one of the few conservatives who have been solid on this issue for over 20 years.

  2. More importantly, it’s suicide for the economy, western civ. and white (or is it anglo?) America.

    • It is suicide for non-white America as well, at least the productive part of it. If the Indian or Chinese immigrants pouring into this country wanted to live in Brazil they could have just gone straight there. I doubt many middle-class Blacks really want this country to turn into Mexico either. But as usual the American elites are skillfully using race and ethnicity to obscure the economics.

  3. Schlafly is a genius. Nobody understood why Democrats favor immigration until now.

    If immigrants start voting Republican, the Democrats would favor mass deportation.

  4. Ironically, there are very good pro-labor (i.e. traditionally liberal) arguments to be made against amnesty and immigration restriction. Cesar Chavez anyone? But Republicans are too stupid to make them.

    How do I know the Republicans are stupid? Look at the anger now over Obamacare’s broken promise of being able to keep your insurance plan. That this was the logical result of the legislation was plain for all to see if they just read the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) and the rules promulgated by the HHS therein. Don’t Republicans employ any researchers?

    Couldn’t someone say, gee, why don’t we look at what it actually says there in black and white. I guess that was too much to ask. How powerful a message would it have been if they said: we predict that you will not be able to keep your doctors. Democrats would deny. Then Republicans could say: I told you so! Money in politics. What a wasted opportunity.

    • “How do I know the Republicans are stupid? Look at the anger now over Obamacare’s broken promise of being able to keep your insurance plan.”

      Umm, Obamacare assumed this was a lie (or at least “untrue”). It’s the supporters that are shocked.

    • It’s not that Republicans are too stupid to make those arguments, it’s that the party is split and a good portion of the party (the establishment types) are in favor of amnesty. They don’t want to make those arguments. Paul Ryan, a man who can hold an intelligent and detailed argument on budget matters, is pro amnesty but is totally unable to articulate why. I saw him tongue tied on Hannity when he was asked why not have the enforcement first then amnesty? He couldn’t answer even though Hannity was giving him a softball interview.

      The reason of course, is money. The big money WSJ donor class types want amnesty for all of the exact same reasons that it’s a bad deal for the working class; it drives down wage rates.

  5. Not enough White Beta males in America who want to marry and make White babies to be the future workers, consumers and tax payers.

    If Asian and Hispanic males do a better job at being Beta daddies it’s no wonder the American power structures wants them.

    White omega males online who bash Betas and homo-erotically drool over Alpha males are NOT creating or sustaining the demographic and economic foundation of America.

    Simple as that.

    • 20% of working age American men don’t have jobs. There’s no shortage of workers that requires mass immigration.

      • Thanks, that’s what I was going to say. If the US needs workers, it’s certainly strange there’s such high unemployment. And it’s worse for youth unemployment.

    • Hispanic males do NOT do a better job of being Beta daddies. The Hispanic illegitimacy rate is 53%.

      Being more willing to have a child under irresponsible circumstances and doom it to poverty is not being better. Maybe there is something there for asians, but not for hispanics (mestizos is a better term, there are asian hispanics among many other types).

    • The Asian birth rate is actually lower than the white birth rate. The only thing that is making the Asian population grow is immigration.

      It is Latinos that have a much higher birthrate than whites.

  6. Another form: there is a culture clash going on, and one side is losing. It looks like they will continue to lose. Soon they will be extinct, and much of what they stood for will be replaced by other values. Moral of the story: get rid of your parasites early and often.

  7. And there are a lot of Republicans who just cannot wait to play Charlie Brown to the Democrats’ Lucy and her football. A party this stupid really deserves to be euthanized.

  8. It is difficult to describe the anger this women generated among the Left in her heyday. The Lefties, used to simply pronouncing things to be so, particularly the feminists, and expecting all institutions of society to bow to their supposed authority were thrown into apoplectic fits by Schlafly’s steadfast refusal to grant them or their ideas even a modicum of deference. When the feminists said women would never lie about rape, Schlafly mocked them. When Schlafly stated that women and men were different biologically and should be treated differently, they gasped at her gaucheness. When she stated that the long term goal of the homosexual rights movement was gay marriage, she was called a fantasist. When she stated that women in the military would cause nothing but trouble, she was denounced. Through it all she steadfastly refused any feminist debate opponent the privilege of claiming to speak for women. Schlafly would counter that her Eagle Forum had more members than NOW. If there was ever a prole hero, it was this lady.

    • Agreed. Schlafly isn’t just another snake-charming evangelist. In my opinion, she and Dobson are two of the sharpest knives in the drawer. They may be religious but their ideas and reasoning are usually rock solid.

  9. Ironically, there are very good pro-labor (i.e. traditionally liberal) arguments to be made against amnesty and immigration restriction. Cesar Chavez anyone?

    Even Chavez became a typical Democratic open borders advocate in the few years prior to his death.

    AFAIK, Barbara Jordan still remains the only leftist minority political figure of consequence who opposed unfettered immigration for economic reasons.

  10. She’s not wrong. The funny thing is the Republicans either believe, or feel the need to believe, in this bs about not being the party of Know-Nothings.

    Interestingly, from what I have gathered, the Obama administration has been way more stringent about deporting people than the Bush administration was. Republicans are going to get pilloried by the MSM no matter what they do, but still they quaver. Tells me all I need to know.
