Are they doing it on purpose? Of course they are.
America’s progressive elite has disdain for Americans who refuse to embrace their globalist, “borderless world,” and anti-American agenda. Consequently, the progressives have decided to replace the American people with people better suited to help enact their ambitions.
For a glimpse into the future they have planned for you, watch the video below of a stroll through an American mall—not just any mall, but the Mall of America—where you can contemplate that future where it has already arrived.
Or consider what the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times had to say about the University of California/Janet Napolitano scandal. A state audit found UC President Janet Napolitano hiding a $175 million slush fund both from auditors and from the UC Board of Regents. But according to the Times what she did should be overlooked because of the good she has done: “She has been a strong leader for the university during troubled financial and political times, resisting efforts to weaken the university’s independence with a welcome level of toughness and dedicating herself to protecting the university’s undocumented students.” In other words, Napolitano deserves a pass because she protected university students in this country illegally.
Before her selection to head the University of California, Napolitano occupied the office of secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama Administration. In that role, she demonstrated her fitness for her new job at the university by working to enact the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and encouraged “prosecutorial discretion” (meaning they were free to break our immigration laws with impunity) for so-called “dreamers.”
Speaking of California, a jury in San Francisco last week acquitted the illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle. His acquittal sent a clear message to people living in America illegally—and to American citizens, too. It shows that a particular class of noncitizens have privileges beyond those of mere American citizens. As an illegal, “forced” as the progressives say “to live in the shadows,” Steinle’s killer was an oppressed person. He therefore deserved the mercy of being permitted to live in a “sanctuary city” like San Francisco, even though he had been deported five times before, because he was oppressed by the “white privilege” of Americans like Steinle and her family.
Many, perhaps most, of the Americans who voted for Donald Trump have, I believe, decided that all this is being done on purpose. Simple incompetence can’t explain what Janet Napolitano and the other progressives are up to. Mere political ignorance cannot explain what those Americans who take their cues from the progressive elite are doing. They have contempt for our common sense belief that the laws and borders must be enforced. And they prefer to disregard us than to exclude potentially hostile foreigners. Indeed, these elites want a country composed of more people who owe their entry to folks like them.
What is going on is easy enough to understand, though it is also at the same time incredible and unbelievable. America’s progressive elite and their followers are fed up with the failure of ordinary Americans to get with the progressive program. Americans who want to continue to live as Americans have no place in the future the progressives are determined to create. Those Americans must be submerged and driven to the margins in the country that once was theirs. In a country where the people are sovereign, progressives have decided that if they can’t persuade the people to go along with them, their strategy will be to replace them with new people.
