How stupid is Vice President Joe Biden? For real, I mean?
Let’s analyze a completely non-snarky CNS article that merely reports some of Biden’s latest comments about illegal immigrants/undocumented workers/apparently “already Americans.”
“Vice President Joe Biden, in a speech to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 Legislative Summit, on Thursday said the 11 million illegal aliens in the United States ‘are already Americans.
“‘Eleven million people living in the shadows I believe are already American citizens,’ Biden said. ‘These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to contribute fully, and by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans in my view.’”
They’re already Americans, huh? By what definition of the word? ‘Cause it certainly isn’t any legal definition, hence the reason why they’re called “illegal” immigrants.
Fortunately for small-minded conservatives like me, the Vice President clarified:
“Biden referenced former President Theodore Roosevelt’s 1894 speech titled ‘.’
“‘Teddy Roosevelt said it better. He said, Americanism is not a question of birthplace or creed or a line of descent. It’s a question of principles, idealism and character,’ Biden said.”
Oh! Gotcha. So Americanism isn’t about what background you have. It’s about believing that America has something worth holding onto… which most illegal immigrants don’t agree with, considering that they don’t bother to learn our language, and they trend liberal for the distinctly anti-American, anti-American dream, socialist-style government subsidies they get as a result.
Sorry for interrupting, Mr. Vice President. Just needed to clarify. Please, continue…
“Biden compared illegal immigrants to immigrants who legally entered the United States, saying it took ‘a lot of courage’ to pick up and go to America where they don’t speak the language and no one seems to want them.”
Yup. It took a ton of courage to deliberately disobey a sovereign state, slip through borders in the dead of the night and flout our laws that were put there to protect American citizens… if “courage” is translated as “hutzpah.” As for no one seeming to want illegal immigrants here, that might be because they contribute more to gang problems than they do the economy, and they clearly don’t respect our laws.
But I interrupted again. Do go on, Joe.
“‘It takes a whole hell of a lot of courage to be sitting at a wooden kitchen somewhere anywhere in the world and say, you know, I tell you what kids. Let’s all pick up and go to America, where we don’t speak the language, where they don’t seem to want us, where it’s gonna be really, really rough to get there, but let’s go. Won’t that be fun?’ Biden said.”
Ummm… Why a wooden kitchen table? Aren’t most kitchen tables wooden? Why is that detail important? I’m confused. Also, they’re coming here because it’s so rotten where they are. So again, his definition of “courage” is a bit sketchy. Real courage would be trying to make a positive difference in their own countries.
“‘All they want – they just want a decent life for their kids, a chance to contribute to a free society, a chance to put down roots and help build the next great American century. I really believe that. That’s what they’re fighting for,’ Biden added.”
Yeah? You really believe that, Mr. Vice President?
Did you get this information from the illegal immigrants who hassle American women like they’re pieces of meat… while their faithful wives take care of the kids back at home?
Did you get your data from the gangs roaming cities across this nation, terrorizing legal residents?
Or perhaps you took a second to step out of your posh, D.C.-establishment lifestyle to interview the majority of illegal immigrants to see where their allegiances really lie?
Yeah, that's what I thought. Which makes you just as stupid as I thought.
