“There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed
at me [and] directed at the president. You know, people talking about
taking their country back. … There's a certain racial component to
this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main
driver, but for some there's a racial animus."
-Eirc Holder 2014
Ambition, avarice, personal animosity, party opposition, and
many other motives, not more laudable than these, are apt to
operate as well upon those who support as upon those who
oppose the right side of a question. Were there not even these
inducements to moderation, nothing could be more illjudged
than that intolerant spirit, which has, at all times, characterized
political parties. -Alexander Hamilton 1787
Can you find racists in America? You undoubtedly can. Are some or most of them opposed to Holder's "gun walking" and the President's policy on border enforcement? I would expect so. But so what? Racists are not the rule anymore, they're the exception. They're a tiny minority. Racists support clean drinking water too, that doesn't make clean drinking water a bad thing.
The race card is a red herring, played only to draw attention away from a growing disaster on the border. I can't imagine any parent sending their unaccompanied child into such danger, but they do it, trusting that immigration laws will not be enforced, and that somehow their child will be kept safe. The president has invited this dangerous situation to our doorstep. (and into our foyer)
