When The Border Is Racist



I remember when Mexican President Vincente Fox strode onto the scene: Tall and handsome, he looked like the Marlboro Man. Standing beside the USA’s Puppet President, George W Bush, who was shorter, I noticed that Dubya also seemed to have a darker complexion.

Fox was presiding over a Mexico that seemed have an economic wrecking ball taken to her. NAFTA, brainchild of George HW Bush, though passed during the Clinton Regime with Republican votes as most Democrats opposed it, had done a job on Mexican small and medium-sized business. NAFTA also had a devastating impact on Mexican farmers with rain-fed fields. They fled in droves to the cities with nothing there for them.

To stave off social unrest, Mexico’s racist, lily-white elite, led by Fox, had a simple solution. To wit, ship their poorer and darker citizens northward.

This was embraced by the Bush-Cheney Junta. And there was nary a peep from the the official Republican Party which functioned as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the US Chamber of Commerce.

Though racist as hell, it was not regarded as such by the corporate MSM. This, despite the fact, it was the equivalent of the USA, after the ghetto riots–really insurrections–of the 1960s, emptying much of Detroit, Newark and Watts, and shipping darker citizens up to Canada. Again, none of this was considered racist.

Now, with the USA in the throes of the worst economic collapse since the Thirties, and effective unemployment past the 20% mark, a majority of Americans are saying: Enough is enough! This is aggravated by Mexican drug cartels taking over de facto control of more and more USA territory.

With the Obama Regime continuing the policy of the Bush-Cheney Junta in not defending the Border, and not not enforcing the laws mandating this defense, States like Arizona have been forced to take over border enforcement, and the like, by default.

But, it seems, this simple enforcement of EXISTING US laws is considered racist.

Let me get this right. It’s NOT racist for the lily-white Spanish elite in Mexico to push out a surplus of their racially-mixed poor, but it IS racist for the USA to enforce its own laws.

Come again?
