Moron Time With Barry, Andy, and Gaga

This is the opposite of what is done in Mexico. There immigrants are blocked from entry if their presence upsets the nation’s demographic composition. Whether Mexican President Felipe Calderón has acquired any shame after predicting that the law’s passage would usher in intolerance and hate is unknown.

Fortunately, pop sensation Lady Gaga gave her own take on the events in Arizona. She is not believed to have walked to the Copper State, but the substance of her proclamation would meet with the approval of Reverend Sharpton, the DNC, and MSLSD.

During a concert in Phoenix, after first congratulating herself on her bravery, Ms. Gaga showered lowest decile rated Oprahatics upon her audience:

I’ll tell you what we have to do about SB1070. We have to be active. We have to actively protest … because you’re a superstar no matter who you are or where you come from and you were born that way. ... I will yell and I will scream louder and I will hold you and we will hold each other and we will peaceably protest. And do not be afraid because if it wasn’t for all of you immigrants this country wouldn’t have s***.

Not to be conspiratorial, but the whereabouts of Barack Obama’s teleprompter could not be determined on that night. One quite naturally wonders if that magisterial contraption was situated just out of camera’s reach and fed Lady Gaga words worthy of a stage bookended by Greek columns.

Based on her use of the vapid phrase “you’re a superstar no matter who you are” alone we can be certain that Lady Gaga is an ignoramus. With no education, no experience with the general population, and no thoughts politically incorrect we should value her insight no more than we would the collected poems of a capybara.

Yet we are not supposed to dismiss her kind. Fifty years ago you could call a moron a moron and a skank a skank. Now we must regard a 24-year-old know-nothing as a genius.

The “youth culture” is a toxic legacy of the 1960s. It fools the most privileged among us into thinking that they have something to say. Generally, they do not, but the Democratic Party covets their allegiance. Without the uninformed they’d be asphalt.

Once people learn about inflation and the futility of printing money, and that the war on poverty only managed to produce more poverty, neo-liberalism no longer impresses as sophisticated or smart.

Lady Gaga’s brief monologue revealed just how bereft of argument your average leftist is. The equating of immigrant with “illegal immigrant” has been ubiquitous throughout this debate. They conveniently omit the fact that only illegals are targeted in Arizona and everywhere else.

In the emotion-plex that is our polis, point/counter-point cogitation is precluded. Debate usually begins and ends with words that end in “ist” or “ism.”

Sure, Lady Gaga is low functioning and vile, but what she said was less reprehensible than what Representative Pete Stark asked of a Minuteman during a town hall meeting.

In answer to a question, Stark slandered the man with: “Who are you going to kill today?” Nice argument! Of course, the Minutemen are a non-violent organization. They have murdered exactly … no one.

However, just in case Lady Gaga is open to instruction I will elucidate why immigration controls and bills such as the one Arizona passed are badly needed.

What makes a country a country are its borders. Should it not defend them then it is more sixties commune than nation. Barriers must not be broached, which is an eventuality our southern neighbor emphatically recognizes.

Moreover, we, as Americans, should collectively decide who joins us on these shores. Let’s work out amongst ourselves how many immigrants we would like to admit. It is unacceptable that the per annum figure changes every year.

In 2009, 1.1 million persons received citizenship. I think that too large a number. While the Obama administration disagrees, it is we, the people, who should ultimately decide.

Yes, it’s a dated concept, but our politicians are supposed to go Washington, D.C., to represent our views. Not vice-versa.

No doubt America has entered a period of serious decay. Current trends are not promising. The superficiality of our public debate only confirms this decline. Delineating the views of prominent Democrats from those of bags of fur like Griffith and Gaga is no longer an easy task.

Yet Moron Time does not have to last forever. Voting the leftists out of Congress this November will begin the process of restoring both freedom and America.
