So basically, White House immigration guru Stephen Miller’s uncle on his mother’s side, David S. Glosser, says Miller is a hypocrite because his own family escaped the Holocaust because when great-grandfather got to immigrate here from Eastern Europe in 1903.
And, BTW, President Trump and Miller are acting like Nazis:
Trump and my nephew both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human. Trump publicly parades the grieving families of people hurt or killed by migrants, just as the early Nazis dredged up Jewish criminals to frighten and enrage their political base to justify persecution of all Jews. Almost every American family has an immigration story of its own based on flight from war, poverty, famine, persecution, fear or hopelessness. These immigrants became the workers, entrepreneurs, scientists and soldiers of America.
Now, I don’t know what is going on in a family where the uncle likens his Jewish nephew to a Nazi. I do know this is typical of liberals: Declare those with whom you disagree the worst people on earth, and prioritize saving the world while pooping on the head of the person next to you – friend, family, employee, whatever.
Miller and Trump are not trying to hurt people. They have a theory that the United States cannot take everyone forever and not be damaged or fatally altered culturally.
Immigrants who came previously sought to assimilate and were integrated into our society. Today, many do not even bother to learn English, and often they don’t have to.
Unlimited immigration from the Third World – particularly one country, Mexico – is an experiment in cultural change that populist conservatives believe will not end well. It does not have to do with the race of the people entering. It has to do with the idea that if you let endless millions of people into your country who harbor different values, and who in many cases don’t seem to be integrating very well, your country will by necessity have to change too far and too fast.
Yes, the people who come to this country enrich us with their cultures. But they do not change the essential nature of being an American. They adapt to us, not the reverse.
Many Americans are legitimately concerned about preserving their culture. That certainly doesn’t make them Nazis. Given the greatness of who we are, it makes them just the opposite.
