Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke wants to open the floodgates of immigration amnesty.
In an exchange with an Iowa voter, O’Rourke endorsed an amnesty plan that would legalize virtually all of the 11 to 22 million illegal immigrants residing in the country. Breitbart reports that the former Congressmen argued that a blanket measure would make America “demonstrably safer” for Angel Families.
Angel Families refers to people who have had family members killed by illegal aliens. This topic came about during a town hall in Iowa last week. He was specifically asked about Angel Families and how his open border policies would make Iowans safer.
O’Rourke backtracked and claimed he was not in favor of open borders and believed some kinds of protection along the border are needed. However, he dismissed Trump’s Wall as a “12th Century” solution and instead advocated for amnesty.
Over the past few years, illegal immigrants have been responsible for numerous high profile homicides. One of those was the murder of Washington state police officer Ryan Thompson, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who had been living stateside since 2014.
Several figures in the immigration reform community, like Maria Espinoza of the Remembrance Project, believe that walls can help contain illegal entry. The good news is that Trump administration has now secured $1 billion in wall funding to help combat this wave of illegal immigration.
However, the amnesty angle that Democrats push is seen as a trap according to some immigration reform advocates. BLP reported how Michelle Malkin was one of the few individuals to point out that even legal immigration has several socio-economic pitfalls such as depressed wages and increased government dependency among migrant communities.
The European immigration experience, of both legal and illegal mass migration, is a raw demonstration of how mass migration in all of its variants can create negative social outcomes for countries.
But to O’Rourke and the oligarchical Democrats that’s not an issue.
O’Rourke is now filling out the mass migration check box without issue.
Voters should expect nothing more than the maintenance of the open border status quo from O’Rourke.
Is Sherlock Holmes About to be Cancelled?
Will Sherlock Holmes be the next victim of the woke purges?
According to a report from Express, certain literary experts believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote “crass racist descriptions” in his novels about Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle was the author of the world famous Sherlock Holmes novel.
Doyle had a statue built in Edinburgh built in Edinburgh across the house Doyle was born in.
In one of Doyle’s short stories, The Adventure of the Three Gables, he wrote about an occasion in which Holmes stared at the “hideous mouth” of a “huge negro” and informed the “savage”: “I don’t like the smell of you.”
Similarly, in The Sign of the Four, the second novel which featured Sherlock Holmes in 1890, Doyle describes the indigenous people of the Andaman Islands off the coast of India as “naturally hideous, having large, misshapen heads.”
Dr. Merrick Burrow, a professor of English at the University of Huddersfield said to The Times of Scotland: “Especially in the early Sherlock Holmes stories, there are crass racist descriptions.”
“There is no question that the language used to describe people of various ethnicities is inflammatory, offensive and insensitive by any contemporary standards. The stories are almost all narrated by Dr Watson and there is a racist framework of descriptions of immigrants in negative terms,” Burrow remarked.
Burrow asserted that the author should not be judged by contemporary standards. She emphasized that Doyle’s “crass characterizations were fairly typical of his time [The Victorian Era].
He continued: “There is a massive difference between someone who was a slave trader or waged military campaigns and someone who wrote books.”
Jonathan McCafferty, the president of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, said there was “lamentable instances of language” in Doyle’s works.
Such concerns over Doyle’s alleged racism come in a time when Black Lives Matter protests have flared up in American and all over the world.
Such uproar has given the radical iconoclasts the opportunity to call for the destruction of Western history.
Doyle’s works are among the many pieces of European history that are fair game for destruction.
What we’re witnessing across the West is what happens when political correctness is allowed to run rampant.
