The Amnesty Fine Print

Mickey Kaus, emphasis mine:

Cautionary note for hopeful Latino activists: A legislative compromise always seems within reach. There is vast DC lobbying/media complex that depends for its survival on “comprehensive” reform always seeming within reach — to keep the corporate clients paying the bills, to keep the grantmakers granting, to keep reporters on their beats writing easy denunciations of DC dysfunction, to keep the whole capital consensus from unnecessary introspection (in which Republicans might have to rethink parts of their platform other than the immigration plank, while Democrats might have to consider what low-skilled migration, expanded in the service of cheap ethnic politics, is doing to their former working class base).

Amnesty hopefuls are dealing with a sort of bureaucratic Penelope, then.

Every night for three years, until one of her maids reveals the secret, she unravels the piece that she has woven by day so that she will not have to give up hope for the return. . .

It’s a good scam, I guess.

    Well, the Blacks seem to be waking-up to the fact that the Left [including their beloved mulatto monarch, Barry Soetoro] have been using them. They’re witnessing their abandonment for the ‘Hispanics’ and ‘Lahh-tee-nosz‘.

    Perhaps the ‘Hispanics’ aren’t stupid and realize they’re being used, too, but they figure they got about eighty years [like the Blacks] to figure out a way to prevent being discarded.

    Every time I heard a politician (of any stripe) talking about how we need reform because we need “a path to citizenship,” I knew that what they were really looking for was incrementally getting us used to the idea of amnesty; “a path to erasing the border completely.”

    Then came the disaster we have now. “Hey, we’re too impatient for incrementalism. Just drop the border, flood the southwest with pitiful souls, and have Pelosi start talking about Jesus and Moses as refugees.”

    Oh, I dunno; our current crop of Democrat (and Establishment Republicans) just might be stupid enough to buy their own rhetoric….
