Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt has a new theory that support for immigration reform is the position “that’s actually racist.”
In a column Tuesday, Hurt accused Democrats of staging a “deviously racist” “brown-face minstrel show routine” when it comes to immigration reform, because, he says, Democrats want “millions more” to “become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat” and turn into “another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters”:
When Democrats “fight” for illegals, they talk about wanting to grant them amnesty for their crimes, welfare for not working and free health care. This way, Democrats presume, millions more will become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat and the party will enjoy another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters for decades to come.
If Republicans are smart and genuinely serious about addressing the scourge of illegal immigration, they will reject these Democratic assumptions that illegals are intent on nothing more than being lazy deadbeat scofflaws and denounce Democrats for such a deviously racist portrayal.
