From the Daily Caller on the CNN’s Jim Costa vs. the White House’s Stephen Miller on the Statue of Diversity:

“What you’re proposing, or what the president’s proposing here, does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration,” Acosta said. “The Statue of Liberty says, ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,’ it doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer. Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country if you’re telling them, you have to speak English when they get here?”

“Well, first of all, right now, it’s a requirement that to be naturalized you have to speak English, so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be a part of immigration systems would be very ahistorical,” Miller responded.

It’s important to understand that the Democratic Party and its PR interns in the media promote Huddled Massesism as part of their plan to steal American elections via foreign collusion. Every year, the right to vote is granted to a substantial number of immigrants who don’t meet any reasonable interpretation of the legal requirement that new citizens must read, write, and speak English, most of whom go on to vote Democratic. But you’re racist to notice.

UK frosh forward James BrawnLy

It’s like if the U. of Kentucky rented LeBron James for the NCAA college basketball final, but it was universally considered racist to mention that the Wildcats were cheating just because their purported freshman forward James BrawnLy was actually 32-year-old zillionaire LeBron James.

The best defense against charges of cheating when you really are cheating is to act offended.

“I’m shocked, shocked to hear you question BrawnLy’s teenagerhoodness. You are just saying that all blacks look alike to you!”

    His problem, obviously, is that such a thing as requiring immigrants speak English would reduce the overall number of immigrants. Same eut h how libs and progs oppose stricter voting requirements because they would lead to less of their kind of voters. Our Big National Discussion on immigration oughtta be on this very topic: how many immigrants do we want? (As well as the related issue: what kind of immigrants do we want.)

    I don’t like every Small Town, U.S.A. being a port city with a bizarre-full of tongues. But that problem would solve itself in a generation, at least. If nothing else, a language requirement would keep people out. And that’s what we need, along with better people: less of them.

    We'll see how this plays out in the midterms. I'm just delighted that the voters are being presented with a real choice, with the Democrats doubling and tripling down on open borders, LBGTQ, BLM, La Raza, Feminism, homo- and trans- sexuals in the military (including taxpayer funded "gender reassignment surgery") etc agenda. Meanwhile Trump is forging ahead with very clear and coherent policies re border security, rebuilding our manufacturing base, and fixing the globalist trade deals that have been draining our economy. Fingers crossed.

    Miller handled himself well, didn’t let reporter talk over him, kept his cool. This is what I’ve been waiting for. Hope it becomes THE issue in 2018. We live in a democracy; let the voters decide.

    We don’t live in a Democracy, and have not for decades. We live in a Oligarchy, run by zillionaires, about 20,000 or so Upper Echelon types like the Podestas, Emmanuels, Clintons, Bushes, Rhodes, and others who hold real power: controlling the Administrative State.

    Everything else is nonsense. There is no meaning to the words Democracy or Elections. The permanent, hereditary, unitary Administrative State that encompasses permanent charitable institutions like the Carnegie Foundation; the deep hereditary bureaucracy, big business particularly media, and NGOS make a mockery of elections.

    We elected Trump. So what? Judges make law, and allow him on their whims to do or not do whatever they will allow; law, constitution, and will of the people be damned.

    We are over-run with Priests, and Parsons, and permanent Witch-Finders. The only response is FEAR ITSELF; inducing raw naked FEAR (while carefully skirting any violence since that only favors the Admin State) with periodic examples. A non-violent version of the cleansing of Whites from all sorts of places by Black street crime is what is needed through every institution. By permanent, never-ending harassment of the Bureaucratic State. Burn down the financial and power advantages the Administrative State hereditary rules have by grinding it away, bit by bit.

  10. What I have found depressing in this administration (and in recent administrations) is the lack of spokespersons who have their facts at their fingertips, and have both poise and debating skills to put across the appropriate narrative when encountering the media or public discourse.

    British politicians, of course, are particularly good at it, thanks to their parliamentary debating skills, but perhaps the best political practitioner of these skills in the present day is Vladimir Putin. Bill Clinton used to be pretty good at it, but it sure seems to be getting to be a pretty rare skill in this country.

    Miller is cause for hope.

    Christopher Hayes @chrislhayes
    Watching Stephen Miller, I’m reminded by long amounts of time I spent talking to anti-immigration activists. 1/n

    Thing that struck me was, whatever your politics or worldview they had arguments for you. Environmentalist? They’d make enviro case 2/n

    Concerned about inequality? They’d argue immigration made it worse. Same with black unemployment and racial inequality. 3/n

    They’d happily argue the other side, too: concerned about traditional values? Immigration was the problem. US losing its identity? same 4/n

    & when they’d talk about “illegal immigration” it was always about rule of law, even though they wanted to reduce legal immigration too 5/n

    Point being, the arguments are all secondary to the goal, which is preventing foreigners from coming here. The arguments are incidental 6/6

    Sounds like there’s a lot of points in favor of immigration restriction!

    And that there’s no principle of theirs they won’t sacrifice to the goal, which is importing more votes.

    Would it be unseemly to suggest that this is done accidentally on purpose? It exacerbates even the social ills Democrats recognize, so immigration — as a useful byproduct — not only inflicts pathologies on their native enemies that decimates their populations but flips them to Democrats in search of hand-outs. Create a problem to solve it?

    I love how he keeps trying to change the subject, and somehow anti-immigrationists bringing things back to immigration is a fault. Because...I don't know. They're cheating by not allowing their interlocutor to dictate the subject?

    So let me get this right; the fact that our present immigration policies have a negative impact on so many different areas of American well-being is an argument FOR the status quo?

    I guess it never occurred to Mr. Hayes that a person might be anti-immigration BECAUSE of the multitude of reasons that he cites? Did it ever occur to.him that the many negative impacts aren't just talking points but are instead the reasons why somebody is anti-immigration. Despite what Scott Adams might think, some of us hold a position because of the data. Reason can lead us to a position, not just provide a veneer of rationality for a position held because of emotion.

    Of course, it was the Blair/Brown thoroughly neo-con ‘New Labour’ which pioneered the policy of mass importation of voters from the third world in order to establish permanent rule.
    Ironically, it was only implementing the recommendations of the right-wing Tory supporting Economist magazine. Apparently, the notion that New Labour would fall to a Marxist putsch never figured into the calculation.

    Apparently, the importation of Labour voters was in retaliation for the Thatcher policy of selling off ‘council houses’, at a huge discount, to their tenants, in order to engender Tory voters.

    Bingo. The once-cartoonish (think the courtroom scene in “Bananas”) opportunistic bitching-and-moaning of the plaintiffs attorney, the surly city hall clerk, the talking-head self-promoting video-uplink guests of cable news, and the lazy kid who didn’t do the assigned reading before his report now form the paradigm of Western society. That’s the proven way to get ahead in this world; today the ideology of cry-bullies and sympathy for the overdog has triumphed definitively (one of the more misunderstood aspects of DJT is that he does it constantly too, but in a taste-of-your-own-medicine fashion which drives media flunkies to incandescent rage). Centuries of moral standards must be rubbished overnight in order to protect transgender commandos and that annoying Facebook bossy chick — “Sheryl” something — and their collective droit du seigneur
