The Left has a small problem. You. As an electorate, you’re not very smart. You don’t know what’s good for you, you tend to be fickle, and you’re in the way. Or so their thinking goes. Which is why they’ve decided to replace you with folks who are more appreciative of their efforts. Walk with me.
LABOUR’S SECRET PLAN TO LURE IMMIGRANTS
The release of a previously unseen document suggested that Labour’s migration policy over the past decade had been aimed not just at meeting the country’s economic needs, but also the Government’s “social objectives”. The paper said migration would “enhance economic growth” and made clear that trying to halt or reverse it could be “economically damaging”. But it also stated that immigration had general “benefits” and that a new policy framework was needed to “maximise” the contribution of migration to the Government’s wider social aims.
[T]he paper, which was written in 2000 at a time when immigration began to increase dramatically, said controls were contrary to its policy objectives and could lead to “social exclusion”. Last night, the Conservatives demanded an independent inquiry into the issue. It was alleged that the document showed that Labour had overseen a deliberate open-door policy on immigration to boost multi-culturalism.
Voting trends indicate that migrants and their descendants are much more likely to vote Labour.
He alleged at the time that the sharp increase in immigration over the past 10 years was partly due to a “driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multi-cultural”. However, the full document was made public only yesterday following a Freedom of Information request by Migrationwatch, a pressure group. A version of the paper was published in 2001, but most of the references to “social objectives” had been removed. In the executive summary alone, six out of eight uses of the phrase were deleted.
The document released yesterday suggested that Labour originally pursued a different direction. It was published under the title “Migration: an economic and social analysis” but the removal of significant extracts suggested that officials or ministers were nervous over references to “social objectives”. The original paper called for the need of a new framework for thinking about migration policy but the concluding phrase — “if we are to maximise the contribution of migration to the Government’s economic and social objectives” — was edited out. Another deleted phrase suggested that it was “correct that the Government has both economic and social objectives for migration policy”.
Sir Andrew Green, the chairman of Migrationwatch, said the document showed that Mr Neather, who claimed ministers wanted to radically change the country and “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”, had been correct in his account of Labour’s immigration policy. “Labour had a political agenda which they sought to conceal for initiating mass immigration to Britain,“ he said. “Why else would they be so anxious to remove any mention of social aspects?
“Only now that their working-class supporters are deserting them in droves have they started to talk about restricting immigration.” Damian Green, the shadow immigration minister, accused the Government of having a secret policy. “This shows that Labour’s open-door immigration policy was deliberate, and ministers should apologise,” he said. “This makes it all the more important that there is a proper independent inquiry in the origins of this policy and whether ministers have been deceiving people.”

We’ve covered this topic before. The Left wants the gates opened wide to change the nature of our culture into what they believe is, how shall I say, more “favorable” to them– from Western and judeochristian to multicultural and secular progressive. Here’s what they’re doing: the floodgates are opened to uncontrolled immigration from the most backward corners of the globe. Immigrants from these impoverished countries naturally enjoy the free goodies. What recent arrival wouldn’t? The Left gives away the free goodies in exchange for their votes. The Left wins elections, and the process repeats itself ad infinitum until little of the dominant culture remains. In the new multiculti rainbow society, the once-dominant culture is reduced to less than equal because it’s “white” and christian, which makes it fair game, as opposed to all other cultures in this new Frankenstein nation which enjoy “protected” status. We’ve long suspected this is the Left’s M.O., and now we’re starting to see hard evidence for it. And not just in the U.K., but also here in the U.S. The Left is a transnational movement because it’s based on IDEOLOGY, not culture. Borders don’t exist to them, and they don’t give a rat’s ass about your culture. Their ideology always transcends their host country’s native culture, with which they are at odds. They see it as nothing more than an obstacle on the path to their earthly utopia. The transnational nature of the Left can be seen in their shared methods and goals of undermining the dominant culture in whichever country they operate. We have our very own U.S. branch of culture destroyers here in America who share the same methods and goals as their UK brethren. Don’t believe me? Below, from the horse’s mouth:
Granting citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants would expand the “progressive” electorate and help ensure a “progressive” governing coalition for the long term, declared a recent adviser to President Obama whose union group is among the most frequent visitors to the White House. “We reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters,” stated Eliseo Medina, international executive vice-president of Service Employees International Union, or SEIU. Medina was speaking at a June 2009 Washington conference for the liberal America’s Future Now! Medina said that during the presidential election in November 2008, Latinos and immigrants “voted overwhelmingly for progressive candidates. Barack Obama got two out of every three voters that showed up.” “Can you imagine if we have, even the same ratio, two out of three? Can you imagine 8 million new voters who care about our issues and will be voting? We will be creating a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle.”

Prior to their desired social transformation, the Left hates the very native population they believe they’re trying to “save” because an established population tends to be right of center, with a culture and traditions they are loathe to give up. That, by definition makes them conservative. That’s you I’m talking about, middle America. You’re not convinced that they really hate you? Perhaps you think I’m going too far with this. We’ve all seen The Matrix. Take this quote from Morpheus:
“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”
To them you are the enemy. You are “hopelessly dependent on the system,” and you will “fight to protect it.” That’s exactly how the Left sees you– “plugged in.” That movie is a precious glimpse into the mind of the Left. It’s a roadmap to their psychology. Gramsci himself might have directed it. Their ideological messiah complex on full display as Neo reaches down from on high to lift you up from the depths onto a new state of consciousness. To unplug you. As they see it, you are a potential “New Man” or “Young Pioneer”, but until you have achieved that exalted status you are to be considered the enemy. And they will do everything short of murder to destroy you if that’s what they have to do. See what they’re doing to Sarah Palin, and even her family. These people are not nice. Every conservative should own The Matrix and study it carefully if you want to know the enemy.
Because, you, the native population of a country are already established, you don’t need the free goodies the Left wishes to thrust upon you, and you’re only willing to go so far in “spreading the wealth around” for somebody else. In America, you favor incremental progress, not “fundamental change”. You believe in safety nets, not the welfare state. To the Leftwing intelligentsia this just won’t do. This is your crime. Which is why they want to replace you with a new import population. One that does their bidding in exchange for the free goodies. And when that happens they won’t need your votes anymore! When the Left has utterly transformed our economy and culture beyond all recognition, then they’ll truly love America! Until then, not so much. And you may or may not get everything they promise you. I don’t know. But I do know that like Esau and his bowl of gruel, you’ll have sacrificed your birthright for it.
