weeping for brunnhilde: As far as I'm concerned, the sooner we dismantle geo-political borders, the sooner we dismantle our own mental borders. Then maybe we'll recognize that we're all in this together and start to act like it. This is the hope, anyway.Those who seek to delete the borders in order to profit can make use of such idiots by appealing to their extreme and extremely misplaced idealism as well as their intense, psychologically-based desire not to be called racists. Since comments like #26 at the DK thread aren't going to do it, pushing back might consist of pointing out that the left wing of the Democratic Party wants the same thing as George Bush. Then, let BDS work its magic.
eugene: The conservative complaint here is that they don't like how globalization forces them to interact with people they consider their racial inferiors. Hence the fence.
MSOC: When asked as to my feelings about immigration ("the immigration problem"), I reply that I wish for open borders. Watching that little segment on Thursday's Colbert Report about the "Minutemen" was so thoroughly depressing and enervating, the humour was almost completely lost on me.
sfarnell: No borders = no nationalism. Yeah n/t
With "illegals" getting to vote, Texas ceases to be an Anglo dominion. effectively, Mexico re-conquers.As if that diary weren't bad enough, 'Mumon' offers "Jerome Corsi: Hegemony, Nativism and paranoia...." ( dailykos.com/story/2006/5/20/958/70763 ), about the article "North American Union to Replace USA?" As with the other useful idiots, Mumon supports the goals of Bush and other members of the "global elite", in effect acting as a CFR apologist. As does the blogger we refer to as "Hatrios": atrios.blogspot.com/2006_05_14_atrios_archive.html#114806872226565666
This amusing bit of wingnuttery from swift boat liar Jerome Corsi brings us back to the black helicopter era of wingnuttery which thrived so well under Poppy.COMPLETE TOOL UPDATE: From the libertarian perspective ( uncsense.com/root/2006/05/that_about_sums.html ) comes this:
Let me tell you conservatives and Republicans something: You disgust me with your incessant and evil harping about "illegal" immigration. You have lost completely and totally the spirit of what America was all about. Completely and totally. Nothing is left. You think it was about a constitution and laws. It was about leaving oppression and misery behind, risking it all -- including your very life -- and seeking new opportunity in a new land where you could trade in peace and hopefully earn for yourself and your loved ones a better life. It was about Declaring your Independence from those who would prevent you by force from exercising what you believed was your God-given (not government given; not democratically given) right to the honest and peaceful pursuit of your own life, liberty, and happiness.
