Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Flirts with the Idea of Abolishing the Citizenship Exam

Published

2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke believes that eliminating the citizenship test for immigrants is “something for us to think about.”

While on a public panel discussion, O’Rourke was open to the idea of abolishing the requirement that immigrants pass a test before becoming naturalized citizens. This comment was made during a candidate forum this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.

During this discussion, the citizenship test mandated by law was described as “another structural barrier” for migrants. Yahoo News reporter Brittany Shepherd reported this comment on Twitter while in attendance at the Iowa event.

In typical fashion, O’Rourke gave a neutral response when pressed about the question of repealing the citizenship exam.

One panelist allegedly said that the citizenship test requirement that immigrants must go through is disrupting the flow of immigration to America. In the panelist’s view, this justifies its removal in order to streamline the process.

In its current form, the citizenship exam consists of two parts where in one section prospective citizens must demonstrate English proficiency in reading, writing and speaking. The second part of this exam tests civics knowledge. Applicants are asked 10 questions out of a pool of 100.  To pass this section, an applicant must get six out of 10 correct.

While such a suggestion to abolish the citizenship exam seems far-fetched, it does make sense from an electoral standpoint.

Based on polling and certain demographic trends, Third World mass migration tends to favor Democrats significantly.

So, any reduced barrier to entry that facilitates mass migration would be welcomed by Democratic elites. Although Democrats would gain tremendously at the ballot box thanks to a looser migration policy, there could be unforeseen social consequences. Europe is Exhibit A of the corrosive social effects of mass migration, as migrant ghettoes are popping up left and right throughout the continent.

Such a scenario could become a reality in America if its current immigration system is kept intact, or in extreme cases, modified to encourage even larger migrant waves. Either way, the average American loses out.

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
