With the image on the left spreading across the Internet via Michelle Malkin and a frighteningly unguarded high school in California there are some questions being raised. Serious questions that the knock-kneed knaves in DC need to address.
AndyJ has been asking in posts wondering if all is lost yet what with all these La Raza protests. Or to borrow from the German 'Alles Kaput.'
I know what he is alluding to. The final downfall of the Roman Empire, contrary to some who think they became stupid due to lead poisoning, was the turning inwards of the Romans who made the real decisions while neglecting the tribes of barbarians various Emperors allowed to settle inside the Roman sphere but never integrated as they had been in centuries past. It was these tribes who wandered through the Roman body like cancer cells that weakened Rome enough for other tribes to finish off Rome and plunge all of Europe into the Dark Ages.
AndyJ is wondering if the United States is facing such a perilous time. Maybe. It all depends upon how many citizens of these United States truly love the country they live in. Ask the Cubans in Miami who still risk death to make it to these shores to escape a totalitarian hell. They love this country with a passion because they have already lost one beloved homeland. How many citizens who have been living in the US for generations, putting such hard times as the Potato Famine into the mists of time, can truly say they love this country? The love of country it seems has become passe except in the heartland and a few other pockets. It seems people have forgotten. And I think it is almost past time for the citizens to rediscover it is okay to love the United States even when acknowledging the faults that still need correcting.
Judging by the protestors in Los Angeles, Chicago, and other cities; it seems there are many who do not love this country while wanting all the priviledges. And who are also unwilling to forget/forgive their reasons to feel like victims. These people are the barbarians who have made it inside the gates of the United States and refuse to fully integrate. And because of various vested interests such integration was not encouraged nor were laws properly applied, so we have today pockets of illegal immigrants refusing assimilation while wanting to expand the impact of their foreign culture into the melting pot culture called the United States, demanding that the US respect their culture while calling for Aztlan and banding into bundes like La Raza or MS-13. If these had been Anglo people, CNN would be carrying stories of a new wave of Neo-Nazis were threatening the United States. But since they are Mexican; the media is strangely mute.
If the supposed champions of the rights of the people are silent, then it becomes the responsibility of the citizens to speak up and make their opinions known, forcefully if need be. To use a phrase taught in every typing class:
Now is the time for all good men to come to their aid of their country.
