Brexit Stands As A Warning For American Conservatives Or Something

American Conservatives have long been concerned about the porous nature of our borders and legal immigration system, as well as the notion that so many coming to this country have no intent to assimilate. Many of them, both legal and illegal, want the U.S. to change to accommodate them and their beliefs and cultures. Much of what Brexit was about was the need for the UK to control its country from the influx of people who have nothing in common with Britain and do not want to assimilate. But, we have a warning or something from the uber-leftist boobs at the UK Guardian

Brexit stands as a warning to American conservatives

Donald Trump’s elated that the British people have put xenophobia and fear over their own economic self-interest.

He views the nation’s exit from the EU (that’s the European Union, for those googling it today) as an affirmation of his own hate-fueled immigration proposals from one of America’s closest and oldest allies.

Many of our British brothers and sisters also viewed the vote as a way to close their borders. Even as global markets and the pound sank to depressing lows, Trump embraced the rushed Brexit.

“Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first,” Trump said at a campaign and golf course christening in Scotland. “They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people.”

Let’s note that a phobia is an irrational fear. Is it irrational to worry about declining/stagnant wages, identity theft, and people bringing a culture which treats women as second class citizens and wants to jail gays while demanding they be able to replace the US legal system with their own religious legal system in their communities? No.

While Trump has been successful in employing similar fear-based arguments on immigration throughout the Republican party primary, he’s now in the big leagues and has to convince independent voters that his closed-door policies against Mexicans and Muslims are right for what was formerly the most open nation in the world.

The argument is simple, even simplistic: they don’t look, talk or pray like me, and my wallet’s feeling light, so it must be their fault.

The fear mongering against Trump is simplistic. It avoids the notion that a country not in control of its borders is not longer a sovereign country. That America has been a generous country, but we want people to come legally, as well as not overstay their visas. That America is a great melting pot, but bringing Sharia law and Islamic extremist values, like the notion that gays should be stoned or thrown off buildings and women cannot be out in public without a relative, are incompatible with American values.

To know Trump, one also needs to be well versed in today’s racial code words. When Trump calls Mexicans “rapists and murderers”, or promises to ban Muslims from entering the US for that matter, he’s also sending a signal to his white, mostly male supporters.

But, some are rapists and murderers. California jails are jammed full of illegals who committed felonies. Furthermore, why is it that every other group can push for what’s good for them, except white people, especially white males? Black, brown, gay, this, that, it’s OK for them to ask for what they want, but never Whites. Those folks are denigrated. Well, tough. Whites have a say, too. Call it White Nationalism if you want. We have a say.

Leftists love their code word language, though.

For conservatives deceiving themselves into supporting Trump for his laughable promises of wealth, they too will wake up the day after Trump enters the White House filled with regret, remorse and bewilderment because they’ll have helped elect a bigot-in-chief who would rather write Trumpland on the White House gates than help unify a country that’s crying out for healing.

Crying out for healing? Who’s been president for the last 7+ years? I thought everything would be kumbaya? No? I’m still not a fan of Trump, and would have a tough time checking the box for Trump as a vote against Hillary, but, he speaks to those who are tired of seeing the country turned into a 3rd world hole.

    American Conservatives are most certainly NOT concerned about immigration or the porous nature of our borders, and that is the problem. American Conservatives could NOT care less about native Americans (original legal sense) or American industry or American culture or the Constitution. They are Liberal Democrats in disguise. George Will, Michael Harrington and Charles Krauthammer are prime examples of these traitors.

    Trump is the only honest, intelligent candidate we have. He is right on immigration, right on trade and right on our military alliances. The treasonous, depraved American Conservatives are wrong on all issues.

  2. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    So, seeing the fallout from Brexit, does this mean that if Trump wins, all the left wing nut jobs in government will resign?? If that’s not incentive enough to vote Trump, I don’t know what is.

    Of course it’s not irrational to worry about these issues. What IS irrational is attributing a set of traits to an entire religion based on murderous assholes who claim to be motivated by their own irrational interpretation of that religion. Are legally immigrating Muslims responsible for stagnant incomes or identity theft? Islam as a religion was MORE progressive on women’s issues than Christianists. Have Muslims in America tried to get gays jailed? Have the tried to establish Sharia law?

    a country not in control of its borders is no longer a sovereign country.

    A tad dramatic, don’t you think? Are you really suggesting the US is no longer a sovereign nation?

    we want people to come legally, as well as not overstay their visas… bringing Sharia law and Islamic extremist values, like the notion that gays should be stoned or thrown off buildings and women cannot be out in public without a relative, are incompatible with American values.

    Are there Muslims here illegally? Is there a rash of Muslims stoning gays or throwing them off buildings here? Preventing Muslim women being in public without a relative?

    some are rapists and murderers. California jails are jammed full of illegals who committed felonies.

    Undocumented “illegal” immigrants have a lower crime rate than native Americans.

    And here’s the money quote….

    Furthermore, why is it that every other group can push for what’s good for them, except white people, especially white males? Black, brown, gay, this, that, it’s OK for them to ask for what they want, but never Whites. Those folks are denigrated. Well, tough. Whites have a say, too. Call it White Nationalism if you want. We have a say.

    This is the Trump campaign in a nutshell. Yes, pity the poor oppressed white male in America, LOL. Working class whites HAVE taken a beating from their formerly privileged perches, but not because of Mexicans and Muslims, as Trump contends. There HAS been a systematic betrayal of middle/working class Americans over the past several decades, but it’s been at the hands of the government/wealthy/corporate elites.

    Trump is just another demagogue taking advantage of this simmering rage, but directing it at the wrong targets.

    I was waiting to see which anti American, anti white, anti Christian, left wing radical would be the first here to do a freek-out over Teach’ post. I was stunned Stunned! when it was Jeffery.

    You really need to read the koran, Jeffery. If you did, like I have dozens of times since was sixteen you would know that the people who murder gays, rape and mutilate women, bomb/shoot/behead non moslems are doing exactly what their religion commands directly from the mouth of mohammad. You are completely, 100% ignorant of what the theocracy of islam teaches, preaches and demands of it’s adherents.

    Are legally immigrating Muslims responsible for stagnant incomes or identity theft?

    Perhaps. I don’t know, are they?

    Islam as a religion was MORE progressive on women’s issues than Christianists.

    That is either a deliberate lie or total ignorance. And the correct term is; “Christians”, not Christianists.

    Have Muslims in America tried to get gays jailed? Have the tried to establish Sharia law?

    A google search can answer that question for you. You’ll be surprised. In fact a google search could most likely clear out just about all your ignorance about islam.

    The first thing you need to learn is that islam is a State with a religion attached. It’s a religious government. It allows no other religions, no freedom of speech or any of our Constitutional freedoms. In fact Jeffery, under Islamic rule you would be killed.

    Why a I not stunned with your total ignorance about this murderous cult? Don’t you have any friends who don’t think exactly the way you do?

    BTW, the way you are so dismissive of the thoughts, feelings ad desires of white men shows just how racist and elitist you are. Being condescending won’t make you right.

      Hoagie
      I have lived for about 12 months in Islamic countries
      6 months in Afghanistan in 76-77
      No one ever tried to kill me
      When I rode my horse into a village people would argue over whose house I would be there guest in, and ALWAYS take care of my horse
      Any guest is always honored
      The other 6 months was in the Southern Philippines Borneo and Malaysia in 68-69
      Please tell us all of your own personal experience with Islam
      Until 4 years ago the GOP party in Tx ALWSYS had a plank calling for making sodomy a felony again as it had been for decades
      Are you retired now ? You really ought to try to travel more and see for yourself what the world is really like instead of being told by someone else
      One thing you would learn us that culture always trumps religion
      And as far as tolerance goes are you aware that Catholicism was basically outlawed in MA for the first 150 years ? Priests risked death. The first public mass was 1780
      When did Islam become most extreme?
      After the USA gave billions to the most radical Muslims to fight that great faux danger if COMMUNISM?
      A system that couldn’t even bake enough bread to feed themselves let alone attack us

  6. John says:

    Teach Sharia law in the USA? That is really a fear of yours?
    When Shsria law is practiced here it is not the law of the land it is simply a way if people in their own community settling disputes amongstvtereselves usually over financial dealings

    This us the same as what Orthodox Jews do
    Most of what is done is non criminal just civil law

  7. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    Perhaps you should ask, as I did, Mr. Teach to support his claims with evidence. Google searches of right-wing sites is not evidence.

    We understand that you and yours are afraid of the “other”.

    Christianist is the equivalent of Islamist, people of a particular religious persuasion who use the religion as a cudgel to force their beliefs on others.

  8. david7134 says:

    John,
    That is amazing, and crap all at the same time. I have been to Muslim nations, namely Egypt and can assure you that Muslims hate the ground we walk on. I would assume that you were in a battle zone and so stupid that you did not realize that people really were trying to kill you. Sure, the Afghans have a very notable history of care of guest, but they also have a history of suddenly turning on them, read some history to go along with your limited experience.

    Hoagie,
    Note that Jeff is really worried about Trump coming in as he gets the lion share of his money from grants and Trump will likely move to shut down that cash cow asap.

  9. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    As I’ve told you many times, you smelly old liar, I get exactly NO money from grants. Neither does my company. Never has.

    The problem with Trump is that he is unqualified to be president of a garden club, much less of these United States.

    What few policy proposals he has made will harm the nation. You support him because he promises to hurt Blacks, Mexicans and Muslims. Trump’s largest constituency is white males with no college. Hardly surprising.

  10. drowningpuppies says:

    You support him because he promises to hurt Blacks, Mexicans and Muslims.

    –that little guy who exaggerates often

    Please show us where Trump has promised to hurt blacks, mexicans, and muzzies.

    Come to think of it, Trump is qualified. He’s a natural born citizen and 35 years old or more and has been a resident for 14 years or more. He’s as qualified as Paris Hilton, Kanye West, Pee Wee Herman, Rosie O’Donnell, Daniel “Danny the Lion” Leo and Ice Cube.

    But you do it all the time when you refer to christianists. You are an atheist who never goes out of his way to mock Islam but you spend entire posts railing against Christianity. You indict the entire Christian faith by the acts of a few.

    YET YOU LOVE AND DEFEND MUSLIMS because we all know by now that they are democratic votes.

    Jeffery Opined:

    Have the tried to establish Sharia law?

    When referring to American Muslims.

    To wit I offer into evidence your honor.

    1. Oh never mind one has but to google, or yahoo, or bing it to find dozens and dozens of examples of legitimate attempts to create sharia law in the United States.

    @John

    Im speechless John That you spent 6 months in Afghanistan in 76-77. And then another 6 months out of the country in 68-69.

    But seriously John….you use two six month stints of your life that occurred nearly

  19. Liam Thomas says:

    @John

    Im trying to establish a link in my mind as to what you would be doing in pre-invasion Afghanistan in 76-77 When Afghanistan was in the middle of a civil war. Were you spying for the Motherland?

    Your second stint: The other 6 months was in the Southern Philippines Borneo and Malaysia in 68-69.

    Interesting.

    Lets see what was going on in those countries in those years.

    To wit we find: In 1968, a new Communist Party of the Philippines was formed by Amado Guerrero (alias of Jose Maria Sison)

    But what of Borneo and Malaysia?

    Let is see:

    The Communist Insurgency War, also known as the Second Malayan Emergency, (Malay: Perang Insurgensi Melawan Pengganas Komunis or Perang Insurgensi Komunis and Darurat Kedua) occurred in Malaysia from 1968 to 1989, involving the Malayan Communist Party (MCP) and Malaysian Government security forces.

    Gee Imagine that John. Coincidence?

  20. Liam Thomas says:

    A judge recommended on April 29 that “Katie Johnson” should have to pay her own attorneys’ fees and court costs related to the $100 million lawsuit she brought against Trump and billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein over alleged sexual assault charges. Then on May 2, a U.S. District judge ordered the entire lawsuit thrown out.

    “Johnson” had previously filed forms asking to be let off the hook for the costs of the lawsuit, claiming she had only $300 to her name.

  21. Liam Thomas says:

    Now let us ponder a bit about who should be considered eligible to be president.

    At least Barak Obama was not under investigation for felonies and high treason.

    “I have just realized I have no idea how my papers are treated at State,” Clinton wrote to Abedin and a second aide. “Who manages both my personal and official files? … I think we need to get on this asap to be sure we know and design the system we want.”

    What is worse?

    Obama just referred to Hillary’s troubles as a C R I M I N A L I N V E S T I G A T I O N.

  22. Liam Thomas says:

    BERNIE!
    BERNIE!
    BERNIE!
    BERNIE!
    BERNIE!
    BERNIE!

    Donald Trump should ask Bernie Sanders to be his running mate… I mean what the hell….We either get a criminal in Hillary or a Criminal in Trump……

    Bernie Sanders is actually the only man still standing that has an ounce of integrity and I think I would vote for him over either one of these two clowns.

  23. Jeffery says:

    “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes… Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else…Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that’s guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.” — D. Trump 1991

    In the 70s the US DOJ went to court with a discrimination complaint against the Trump Organization for renting practices in NYC. D Trump was the president of the company.

    Deport the Mexicans. A “Mexican” judge is discriminating against Donald.

    Ban Muslim immigration. Register Muslims.

    He’s a racist, as are his supporters.

  24. drowningpuppies says:

    And that little guy who exaggerates often keeps flailing away.

    Once again, please show us where Trump has promised to hurt blacks, mexicans, and muzzies…

  25. Jeffery says:

    the little white puppy continues to defend the Great White Hope

  26. drowningpuppies says:

    So that little guy who exagerrates often cannot show us where Trump promised to hurt blacks, mexicans, and muzzies.

    Oh, for future reference…

    Mexican is not a race.

    Muslim is not a race.

  27. Jeffery says:

    the little white racist puppy can’t spell

    I guess Orange is the new White for you

  28. drowningpuppies says:

    Weak but typical.
    Again…

  29. Hoagie says:

    He’s a racist, as are his supporters.

    And anyone so narrow minded and contemptible as to hold a comment from 30, 40 or 50 years ago against a man who over those decades has provided jobs and income for those very people he’s supposedly racist about is himself a anti white bigot.

    Jeffery, you really need to seek help. You are so full of hate and retribution against anyone who disagrees with you about anything it’s incomprehensible. You really don’t believe anyone has a right to a different opinion or to see a problem from a different perspective than you, do you? You immediately jump to name calling and hostility whenever someone disagrees. To you nobody has an honest disagreement, they are too stupid or ignorant or racist or whatever the latest “phobe” is. You would make a great Nazi since leading people to the gas chamber for not being what you think they should be is right up your alley. Are you even an American? You sound like you come from some communist country because every problem must be solved by government. Wow, guy. You need some help.

  30. Liam Thomas says:

    Democrats just dont want to lose votes because the GOP stands in their way of turning America into another failed communist nation.

    Even Brother John almost admitted he was an operative of the USSR claiming to go to pre-invasion afghanistan in 76-77 and claiming to be in the Phillipines and Malaysia in 68-69.

    They are both communists. Jeffery most likely is not anything near what he says he is.

    Anyone running a large company would not even have the time to post a 100 posts a day on the internet.

    When Im actually working I almost never even have time to read texts….My secretary does that for me and culls the ones that I need to see and pidgeon holes the others.
