    'Anchor Baby' Flap Shows Left Losing Grip

    August 22, 2015
    'Anchor Baby' Flap Shows Left Losing Grip

    By Jack Cashill

    “You said that you have a big heart, and that you’re not mean-spirited,” queried ABC reporter Tom Llamas. “Are you aware that the term ‘anchor baby,’ that’s an offensive term? People find that hurtful.” The target for Llamas’s pique, of course, was presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    Yes, “hurtful” and “offensive.” Llamas joined ABC less than a year earlier, but he had already mastered the rudiments of progressive patois, the language of victimization. As ABC’s designated Hispanic avatar, he felt free to spell out the left’s newly revised semantic codes to the insufficiently ethnic Trump.

    “You mean [anchor baby] is not politically correct, and yet everybody uses it?” said Trump defiantly. “You know what? Give me a different term.” Llamas had swung at the wrong piñata.

    There was no good answer to Trump’s question. Said Llamas lamely, “the American-born childs [sic] of undocumented immigrants.” This suggestion was so foolishly cumbersome even his fellow reporters snickered. Trump scoffed, “You want me to use that? Okay. I’ll use the word ‘anchor baby.'” Game, set, match -- Trump.

    For a half-century or more, the left has been imposing its absurd, improvised values on America. In the age of Obama, that imposition has taken on the force of law. Historians may well look back upon the Obergefell v. Hodges decision in late June as the most forward salient in the left’s slog through the institutions. Having forced gay marriage and its consequences on the nation’s dispirited conservatives, progressives thought the battlefield theirs.

    It was not. Unexpectedly, two people emerged this summer to counter the left’s relentless attack on the nation’s traditions. One, of course, is Trump. In disposing of Llamas, this unlikely culture warrior showed once again the simple glory of rational resistance.

    Conservatives have been yearning for someone to fight back since Ronald Reagan hung up his cowboy hat. Trump is no Reagan, but he is a fighter.

    The second and even less expected partisan is David Daleiden, the 26-year-old project lead of the Center for Medical Progress

    (CMP). If Trump is the counter-revolution’s firebrand, its John Brown, Daleiden is its Harriet Beecher Stowe, the quiet chronicler of the evil that undermines the left’s claim to superior morality.

    Daleiden’s videos could make a Nazi gag. They provide visual evidence of what conservatives only imagined, namely the sausage-making side of a cause that the left embraces sacramentally. Gun-shy just months ago, conservatives now voice their disgust openly and everywhere. If dismembering unborn babies and trafficking in their body parts is not evil, they ask, what is? Refusing to bake a gay wedding cake? Flying a Confederate flag? Calling Bruce Jenner “Bruce”? The moral “outrage” advantage has swung sharply from left to right.

    Although at first glance Clinton found the CMP videos “disturbing,” she quickly realigned her rhetoric with that of her base. Said she later of the videos, “I think it is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood has been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years. And it’s really an attack against a woman’s right to chose.”

    Those who have seen the CMP videos thought Hillary’s whine empty and obscene. Imagined wars on women cannot compete with real images of dead babies. Like Llamas, Hillary Clinton had yet to come to terms with the shift in moral momentum.

    Last week, in response to the use of the term “anchor babies” by Trump and Jeb Bush, the spiritually obtuse Clinton tweeted,

    “They’re called babies.”

    She sent this reflexively pious tweet on the same day that the CMP released its most unnerving video to date, one in which a clinic worker tearfully described how she cut the brain out of an aborted baby whose heart was still beating.

    Clinton’s mindless response stoked the Twitter universe. “I thought you guys preferred ‘fetus,’” said one tweeter. “How about 'Clump of anchor cells’?” said another. “But you are a-ok with @ppact chopping their heads in half and plucking out the brains of unborn babies. you are sick!” said a third.

    All Americans need to ask themselves 5 Simple Questions to clear their heads on the illegal immigration issue:

    1. Should illegal aliens be in the country? NO

    2. Should illegal aliens work in the United States? NO

    3. Should illegal aliens breed citizens of the United States? NO

    4. Should illegal aliens receive any tax credit refund for filing tax returns? NO

    5. Should illegal alien households receive any publicly-funded benefit? NO

    Any candidate's plan to achieve this, whether Donald Trump's or someone else's, is a legal, proper and correct plan that should be supported by all Americans, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, political affiliation or economic status. Any American who opposes correcting this outrageous situation is simply Anti-American and willing to sacrifice someone elses life, security, job and future to foreigners and aliens who aren't even supposed to be in our country, let alone disrupting the domestic tranquility and damaging the well-being of United States citizens.

    Americans wages are stagnant - or declining - our participation in the labor force is below its normal level, and STEM graduates can't find STEM jobs.

    So America has no need at all for immigration. None, zero, zip.

    Unfortunately the mainstream media continue to beat the drum for more immigration, which will mean that legals and illegals undercut Americans for jobs, or that we'll have to give welfare of various kinds to those who can't even undercut an American for a job.

    Yep, it's because our media is either owned by foreigners or people who would sell out our country to make another buck off of immigration money.
