Boycott? Strike? Threat?The Illegal Human Beings’ March in the Rhineland

On May 1, illegal invaders gave the American people another ultimatum.

On May 1, TV news readers and alleged reporters kept saying that the “boycott” marchers were demonstrating their “power.” VDARE columnist-blogger James Fulford heard and read the phrase “show of force” used by the media, though he reports that at least one outlet, the Los Angeles Times, thought better of it, and changed the caption from “Show of Force” to “Images of Protest.”

Fulford writes, “It should worry you that Mexico is deploying a 'show of force' in American cities, and it should also worry you that the American media doesn’t think anything of it.”

“Worry” is not the emotion I’m feeling right about now.

I don’t know what was more disgusting: Millions of criminals who have impoverished millions of law-abiding, working-class Americans, flaunting their contempt for American law, and demanding that they be rewarded for their crimes; alleged journalists who gave up all pretenses to objectivity and became shameless, slobbering, illegal immigration cheerleaders (which I’m sure pleased their own illegal nannies, cooks, gardeners and cleaning ladies), and gave no time to critics of illegal (much less, legal) immigration; or the parents and alleged educators who committed the crimes of educational neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, by telling their children and students, respectively, to commit truancy.

As a legal immigrant I know said, if legal citizens (well, white or Asian legal citizens) encouraged their kids to be truant, they’d be brought up on charges.

During the Passover seder, one of the four questions the youngest boy at the table must ask is, “How is tonight different from all other nights?” And so it was with the so-called boycott. How was the boycott different from all other days?

Illegal aliens made it impossible for Americans and legal immigrants to drive in the cities where they marched. They refused to serve Americans, and successfully pressured American businesses whose customers are virtually all Americans, to shut their doors to them, or to refuse to make deliveries to them. In other words, they were obnoxious.

Reporters all repeated the illegal alien talking points about how essential illegals supposedly are to the U.S. economy. And yet, what contribution do they make? They don’t do jobs that “Americans won’t do”; before the illegals came, all of those jobs were either done by Americans (by American employees, or in cases such as mowing lawns, or small-scale home repair, American homeowners often did the jobs themselves), or simply not done, because employers would not pay even a subsistence wage. Is it a good thing that there are people who will work for less than subsistence wages?

An economics student will no doubt respond, “But that’s impossible. No one can work for less than a subsistence wage.”

Wrong. A law-abiding person cannot work for less than a subsistence wage, because he cannot pay his taxes, rent, subway fare, etc., on those wages. But a person willing to break any number of laws can. A person who is in the country illegally, getting paid under the table (i.e., not paying any taxes), and living in an illegally overcrowded house (paying way below market rent), who illegally rides the subway without paying his fare, and who, when he gets sick, instead of going to the doctor and paying for his care the way law-abiding Americans and legal immigrants do, simply shows up at a hospital emergency room and freeloads off paying Americans, can work for less than subsistence wages.

However, many illegal immigrants are doing quite well. The workers at IFCO, the company that was raided by the feds in a propaganda mission last week, were making $600 per week, much better money than I ever made teaching college with a master’s degree, no matter how many hours per week I worked.

And yet, illegals do not contribute to “the economy.” They do better or worse for themselves – and since their mere existence in these United States is a crime, they don’t count – send more or less money to their home countries, which again does not count in their behalf, and contribute to their bosses getting rich. Businessmen, illegals, and foreigners living abroad, si. The American economy, no.

So, what are the businesses that were hurt by the illegal aliens’ boycott? The same businesses that have made millions off the hiring of illegal aliens, or who profit indirectly, as for instance Home Depot does, off the illegal aliens who loiter in front of the stores, and whom Home Depot’s customers use as indentured servants. Those are the same businesses that expressed their support for the illegals’ boycott. Nowadays, the self-righteous always seem in a hurry to express their impassioned support of crime and evil. Good; if they support the illegals, let them put their money where their mouths are.

Businesses hurt by the “boycott”? Cry me a river!

Illegal aliens didn’t boycott businesses and schools on May 1; they boycotted the American people.
