I attended a Rally on the steps of the Supreme Court today at the invitation of one of the chapter presidents for the Tea Party Patriots.
Justices heard oral arguments in the case challenging President Obama’s 2014 executive actions to stop the deportation of millions of people living in America illegally.
There were many notable observations of the rally. One being that the Indiana Chapter President of the Tea Party Patriots Emery McClendon is a Black American. There, in one shot kills the sacred cow of liberals that Tea Party people are racists. I also observed a few thousand protesters who descended on the SCOTUS steps demanding that President Obama’s Executive Action be upheld by the justices who are currently tied in a 4 to 4 split.
Democracy now, Occupy Democrats and other pro-amnesty groups bused in individuals from all over the country and from all walks of life. There were Black protesters, white protesters, Asian protesters, even clergy that were protesting in support of the president’s executive order. The majority of protesters present were Latino.
I saw a group of young black males with matching tee-shirts and signs saying “Our Dreams Are Not Illegal.” I ask them why they were here. They couldn’t articulate to me with any degree of certainty what the issues were on amnesty, but they were there to protest nonetheless. I found this with many who were there protesting. Angry and shouting, but not sure what they were shouting for, I call them the passionately misinformed.
They had speaker after speaker who railed against perceived injustice shouting and demanding that our government keep their families together. It was also noted that a great many of the speakers speeches were in Spanish. Even the music they played between speakers was in Spanish. There were even speakers that acknowledged they were in America illegally. Apparently, they had no fear of being arrested and deported.
What was especially troubling was when the Tea Party and Patriot community began their rally, and no respect was given to them at all. They were sneered and shouted down. And when they began to say the pledge of allegiance, the protesters did not participate and shouted down the pledge and even booed. When the national anthem was sung, again more booing from those who say they are American and want justice with amnesty.
It was a sad moment for me. Growing up I was always taught to respect the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem with my right hand proudly over my heart, whether in school, in church or at a ball game. Well, there is a segment of our society today who has no regard for such things as respecting our national heritage, and that number includes both those here legally in the USA and those who demand citizenship who are illegally here.
My question is: What kind of citizenry are we allowing in our country if they hold no regard for our national sovereignty, history or customs? And will that citizenry assimilate into the dominant American culture?
My fear is amnesty will be granted. By and large, because our elected officials have no backbone and because our supreme court is stacked with justices who themselves knee-jerk respond to the liberal constituency that got them appointed. The end result in the near term is our national identity and DNA will be replaced. And long term, America will become balkanized based not on state’s rights and sovereignty but based on ethnicity, nationality of origin and religion. In effect, we will become what Europe is now facing, a seething caldron of multiculturalism.
My final observation is that only about 100 or so patriots turned out for this event, as opposed to a few thousand in number for the opposition. The media took full account of that fact as every media outlet in Washington was at this event and reported like this with their biased slant since they are of the same ideology as those who coordinated the protest.
If the Church doesn’t wake up from its slumber and get off of its derrière, 20 years from now, America will not resemble in any shape or form what we took so much pride in over the last 200 plus years.
Twenty-six states, including Texas, position that the President’s programs represent an abuse of executive power that would negatively impact their budgets with costs they can ill afford. Particularly at issue is driver’s licenses given to illegal immigrants. The court will decide the case in June.
