This is old news and hardly a surprise. Though truly great examples of the human spirit when unleashed in a free America, such use of these examples are threadbare and time worn. What it has to do with the current crisis of sanctuary cities and states in defiance of Federal laws is a logical mystery..


Query,,,;
How many were founded by illegal immigrants?

I wish you made some sort of sense with you insults.


The fact is Immigrants account for almost every thing that has happened here since about 1621. So it comes as no surprise that they and their families can be held accountable for most of what happened here. This includes our founding as a nation as well as our economic successes. All done at the expense of those native Americans who lost everything so the immigrants, of which you applaud, could prosper.

But none of that has a knit's whisker of pertinence to the crimes committed by well meaning politicians against the laws of our country at the expense of those LEGAL immigrants you laud.


BTW, The German Nazi's had nothing to do with it either. I do wish you would stop making that ridiculous comparison until your relationship with the truth is repaired.

I assume they were legal unlike melania when she first arrived. point is if we throw away colored people or certain religions, for immigration we do a disservice to the economy and country.

Once again, I lay before you the actual facts of the matter and you respond with a banal personal insult. That you cannot comprehend the lies and deceit in your OP does not make those who illustrate why it is wrong "NAZIs."

Given your overuse of the term as a general response to those of whom you disagree I suspect you don't even know what a Nazi is.

Nazism subscribed to theories of racial hierarchy and Social Darwinism, identifying the Germans as a part of what the Nazis regarded as an Aryan or Nordic master race.[2] It aimed to overcome social divisions and create a German homogeneous society based on racial purity which represented a people's community (Volksgemeinschaft). The Nazis aimed to unite all Germans living in historically German territory, as well as gain additional lands for German expansion under the doctrine of Lebensraum and exclude those who they deemed either community aliens or "inferior" races. The term "National Socialism" arose out of attempts to create a nationalist redefinition of "socialism", as an alternative to both international socialism and free market capitalism. Nazism rejected the Marxist concept of class conflict, opposed cosmopolitan internationalism and sought to convince all parts of the new German society to subordinate their personal interests to the "common good" and accept political interests as the main priority of economic organization.

As a mongrel mix of German, Scottish and Cherokee who's political perspectives are that of a Libertarian Constitutionalist, I hardly qualify.

Nazi: characterized as a form of fascism that incorporates scientific racism and antisemitism, ..white supremacist ideology, and deliberately adopts the symbols of Nazi Germany

Classes in reading comprehension start at 10:00 pm in room 102.

Salty, just because someone disagrees with you, does not mean they are alt-right. Nor is everybody is 'brainwashed' by the alt-right.

Not everybody believes the propaganda spewed by either the right or the left. They develop their position from a multitude of information sources, personal events, research and experience.

Trying to paint other people with your labels is really making you look..... small.
