I can only thank God, quite literally and sincerely, that a man like Tucker Carlson exists, and is unafraid to speak the truth about the carnage and chaos being sown in this country at the present time. Fox News, too, is to be commended for allowing him a platform to do so.
The pressure on him, and on Fox News, from the progressive left is unrelenting, savage and vicious. For his latest comments on the border crisis, he's being accused of racism, white supremacist views, and a host of other politically-incorrect "evils". He's not guilty of any of them, of course - he's merely describing what's actually going on, and when challenged, he can produce evidence for what he says.
Here's his view of the border crisis. If you'd rather not watch the video, I've included a transcript of some of the main points below it.
Here's part of the transcript from Fox News.
Biden explained the entire point of mass immigration back in 2015, when he was Vice President:JOE BIDEN: An unrelenting stream of immigration. Nonstop, nonstop. Folks like me who are Caucasian, of European descent, for the first time in 2017 we'll be an absolute minority in the United States of America. Absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America from then and on will be white European stock. That's not a bad thing. That’s a source of our strength.
"An unrelenting stream of immigration." Why? Joe Biden said it. To change the racial mix of the country. That’s the reason. To reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here, and dramatically increase the proportion of Americans newly arrived from the third world. And then Biden went further and said that non-white DNA is the source of our strength. Imagine saying that. This is the language of eugenics. It’s horrifying. But there’s a reason Biden said it. In political terms, this policy is sometimes called the great replacement — the replacement of legacy Americans, with more obedient people from faraway countries.

The Haitians now in Texas aren’t trying to escape violence in their own country. They haven’t been in Haiti in years. They’ve been living in South America. Many even had refugee status in South America, in countries like Chile and Brazil. But that wasn’t good enough. They waited until Joe Biden became president and came here, for the free health care and housing Biden promised them. So now they’ve arrived. Why wouldn’t they? You would. Who wouldn’t?
. . .
We don’t have to put up with this, we could solve it in a day. The administration could send these people back immediately. Haitians aren’t bad people, a lot of them are great people. But we have no obligation to let them into our country. American citizens owe no debt to Haiti. Haiti was never an American colony. It’s been an independent country for more than 200 years, since 1804. For much of that time, we’ve sent Haiti a whole lot of aid. So however sad and dysfunctional Haiti might be, it’s not our fault. That’s for sure. Yet Joe Biden is now punishing Border Patrol officers who tried to enforce the law, who dared to deter Haitians from entering this country illegally. They had reins, not whips, reins. But it doesn’t matter to the Biden administration. The officers' real crime was trying to do their job, to stop illegal migration into this country. They have now been suspended and likely will be fired. Can you imagine punishing law enforcement for enforcing the law? This is insane. Why do American citizens have a duty to follow the law at this point? That’s an honest question. People are going to start asking this question.

I note three things about the mass of illegal aliens the Biden administration is welcoming into our midst.
- They're poor, indigent, penniless. They aren't coming here with the resources to support themselves. They're also coming into an economy crying out for workers, but they don't have the skills needed for most of those jobs. In other words, they're going to become burdens on the public purse before long, whether that's legal or not. The Federation for American Immigration Reform points out: "In 2017, the total cost of illegal immigration for the United States – at the federal, state, and local levels – was approximately $116 billion ... Evidence shows that the tax payments made by illegal aliens fail to cover the costs of the many services they consume ... FAIR maintains that every concerned American citizen should be asking our government why, in a time of increasing costs and shrinking resources, is it spending such large amounts of money on individuals who have no right, nor authorization, to be in the United States?"
- Every job taken by an illegal alien is a job that won't be filled by a legal US citizen or resident. That means the "legal" will remain a burden on state funding in terms of welfare, food stamps and other entitlement programs, rather than earning his or her own living and making his or her own way in society. It's perpetuating the "welfare state". In the process, of course, it gives more power to the welfare state, because more and more people grow dependent on such support; and the political party that promises more and greater welfare benefits can count on greater electoral support. In this case, the Biden administration is ensuring that the Democratic Party will stand to benefit from the current influx.
- This influx is storing up immense problems for future administrations. We already have at least 10-12 million illegal aliens in this country; some estimate their number to be up to double that figure. Now we're admitting so many illegals across our southern border that officials aren't even bothering to count them all. We'll probably see at least 2 million more arrive during 2021, and at least the same again next year. Sooner or later, the question of their future must be dealt with. There will be only two answers: kick them out, or offer them a pathway to permanent residence and, possibly, citizenship. I don't believe either the Republican or the Democratic party has the guts to choose the hard option. They'd rather pander to these future voters and give in to them - but, as Tucker Carlson points out, that way lies disaster for this country. If we get another President with the will to act against illegal aliens and expel them, he'll face immense opposition, not just from political influences, but from the millions who'll riot on our streets rather than be sent back to the poverty and squalor from which they fled.
Essentially, if something isn't done very soon to stop this influx, it'll change America's demographics, and America's future, so greatly that there'll be no turning back. That, of course, is precisely the aim and the goal of the Biden administration.
The question is: what are you and I going to do about it? If we do nothing, we're going to be swamped. If we act, we're going to be regarded as criminals by the powers that be, and pursued, arrested and prosecuted in any and every way they can. We're between a rock and a hard place.
Our Founding Fathers found themselves between a rock and a hard place, too. They found a solution, and they made it work, no matter what the cost to themselves.
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
― Patrick Henry
Will we have the courage to do the same?
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
There are many things we can do to "throw a spanner in the works" of Big Brother. They aren't necessarily related to illegal immigration at all: but if you gum up many small parts of the machine, sooner or later the machine as a whole can't function any longer. Others have already offered suggestions. It's up to each and every one of us to consider them, read more widely, "think outside the box", and follow President Theodore Roosevelt's advice:
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
That advice has been a lodestone for me for many decades. It's as true today as it was when he first said it. Just as small teams of Americans are today providing a lifeline for Afghans to escape the Taliban, after our government screwed up that job so badly, so small teams of Americans can obstruct, filibuster, disrupt and frustrate the operations of Big Brother and its minions. What's more, if you do it right, you won't even be breaking the law!
Resistance starts with you and I.
