The Donald, Immigration Reform and Hate Crimes

As a first generation American I have always followed immigration closely. My grandmother and mother came to America through the front door. They worked long and hard to gain their legal status and citizenship. This is as it should be. I do not take their efforts lightly.

The Donald, no stranger to controversy, has made some telling comments on illegal immigration recently. It is not surprising to hear all the usual liberal/progressive/ democratic drones whining about how evil the Donald now is. If you actually think about what he said and familiarize yourself with even the basic facts about illegal immigration, you cannot actually find fault in his comments. One wonders if Donald has decided to unwrap himself from all the touchy feely BS that passes for reason in liberal circles.

In the past it seems he has given some consideration to some form of immigration reform. While he has never called for outright amnesty, at least that I can find, he has sounded at little to soft for me when he repeated the democratic talking points about “jobs Americans will not do” and having to deal with the ones already here. If he has “evolved” in his immigration thinking don’t liberals tell us evolution is a good thing?

The recent killing in San Francisco and the discovery that the Kenyans lack of enforcement released the future killers of 128 Americans rather than deport them proves that Mexico is not sending us their best and brightest. The Kenyan, his henchman Holder and any lawyer that ever helped keep any of these scumbags in America all have blood on their hands and belong in prison. It is entirely appropriate that, since democrats/liberals/progressives will not, Donald remind us what the true cost of illegal immigration can be. The evil in that last sentence is that liberals/democrats/progressives know that Donald is, if anything, understating the problem. For them, it is imperative that the American public be kept in the dark. If for no other reason than liberals need the votes.

And yes, Mexico is sending people here. Racist groups like La Raza (The Race, and why does this title not offend liberals/progressives/democrats?) and the Mexican government instituted an “unofficial” policy years ago to reclaim much of America with an unstoppable wave of illegal immigration, anchor babies and natural population growth. It’s known in inner circles as Reconquest. There are reliable reports that La Raza and the Mexican government both print and distribute “guides” on where to cross the border, how to locate and surrender to ICE as well as the names and numbers of accomplice lawyers and support groups. Included in the guides, some even in the form of comic books for children and those who cannot read, are directions to sanctuary cities, how to get false id’s and apply for government aid programs.

Leaving nothing to chance, once here assimilation is profoundly discouraged. Illegal immigrants are encouraged to devoutly maintain their “native” culture. Simple minded liberals/progressives/democrats echo this with their demands for multiculturalism. The cost burdens of non-assimilation alone show the lunacy of such demands but lunacy is what drives liberals/progressives/democrats. In their sad attempt to show how much more they “care” about anything they will cheerfully spend us into oblivion.

For calling out the failure of liberal/progressive/democratic immigration policy Donald is now paying a price. Politically correct companies like Macy’s and NBC have unceremoniously dumped the Donald. Univision, the propaganda arm of the Mexican government, has severed relations with him as well. If reports about the contracts between Donald and Univision are correct it will likely cost them millions of dollars when Donald wins in court. Univision doesn’t care. As a propaganda agency their mission is dis-information. The Mexican government will make up the cash shortfall. As for Macy’s they have long been an anti-American company. Why anyone would shop there escapes me entirely. As for NBC I wasn’t aware they were even still on the air.

For daring to address the subject of illegal immigration the Donald is now the single largest purveyor of hate in America, according to the left. For these moral relativists truth is optional, malleable or oftentimes, irrelevant. Donald has committed the hate crime of proclaiming the emperor has no clothes. Never mind that he has probably employed more minorities than most liberals/progressives/democrats will ever meet in their unhappy (I have yet to meet a truly happy liberal/progressive/democrat) lifetimes. He is now officially a hater.

My mother and grandmother assimilated very well into their new country. This doesn’t mean they forgot their heritage or where they came from. As my grandmother proudly told anyone who asked about her accent, “I was born in Germany but I am an American now.’ Grandma went back to college at age 55 and earned a degree in journalism. She never demanded her instructors teach in her native German. I suspect she would have been profoundly offended if they had.

The real hate crime is that so many on the left, in order to feel good about themselves, are willing to sacrifice the rule of law, the well being of their country and lives of their fellow citizens.

The real hate crime in America today comes from liberals/progressives/democrats who know exactly what is best for you and dress up their desires to control you as compassion and understanding.

The real hate crime is that any immigrant who attempts my grandmothers path is derided by those same liberals/progressives/democrats for not being black/latino etc enough.

The real hate crime is that any immigrant who seeks the American dream today must do so in his native culture.

The real hate crime is that millions of Americans see their country, incorrectly, as the source of evil in the world.

The real hate crime is liberals/progressives/democrats are so willing to pit Americans against each other in every way they can think of. Black vs White, straight vs homosexual, rich vs poor, citizen vs illegal.

Perhaps the most hateful crime of all is the chosen ignorance of far to many people who call themselves Americans.

In 2014 alone illegal aliens released back into our communities were responsible for 80,000 criminal convictions. These are just the convictions. How many serious crimes were plea bargained away and how many were never resolved or even reported? Contemplate this for a minute. This means people like the mayor of San Francisco, the Kenyan and his supporters are just fine (as long as the illegals continue to vote democrat) with hundreds of murderers, sex offenders, kidnappers and thousands of drunk drivers running amuck in your community. How does this “tolerance” thing work again?

On this issue Donald is absolutely right, get over it.

Same Agenda Same Results

I think little Barry learned his history well. It may be a cliché for many people to say that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. It is another cliché to say that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I think the reason these time worn “cliches” still resonate is because they are true. As for what Kitty Werthmann witnessed then, and is witnessing to now, does anyone else see the pattern? If so, what are you willing to do about it?

Kitty Werthmann , December 22, 2012

“What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.”

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so. Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were go- ing from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

Austrians saluting

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”
And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

A pro-Hitler rally

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

Young Austrians

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.
“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.
“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna.

“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

Austrian kids loyal to Hitler

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which in the winter were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eye-witness account.”

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.”

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. Don’t let freedom slip away. After America, there is no place to go.”

Kitty Werthmann
