Are you politically correct?

Just what is it about people that they worry about being politically correct? According to one definition political correctness is a term used to describe language that is intended to provide a minimum of offense. I can understand not being rude or vulgar, but I consider that being civil and polite. However when it comes to telling the truth about something, one should not have to worry about being politically incorrect, or hurting someone's feelings.

All through the ages there have been great men who were not afraid to stand up and speak the truth. Being politically correct never crossed their minds.

John the Baptist openly condemned the people who flocked to be baptized by him in Luke 3:7, "Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hat warned you to flee from the wrath to come?"

Later, Jesus Himself spoke plainly to the people in Mark 11:17, "And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves."

These great men were unafraid to speak the truth, no matter who it offended. That is one sign of greatness, being confident enough in your views that you are not afraid to offend others by speaking the truth.

If you look back to the birth of our nation, you might remember the famous speech given by Patrick Henry to the Virginia House of Burgesses on March 23, 1775. The words "...give me liberty or give me death." are well known by almost all. However did you also know that, during the same speech, he said this?

"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings."

That sounds like a resounding proclamation concerning his willingness to speak the truth, no matter who he offends.

Therefore you can see that all through time, great men have spoken the truth and not been afraid of who they would offend by doing so.

I wonder, with today's atmosphere of political correctness, what would be the outrage of certain groups if we were to announce that our Immigration and Customs Enforcement were initiating an operation called Operation Wetback? The Hispanics, the ACLU, and who knows who else would be up in arms, demanding that we rename it. They would accuse ICE of profiling Mexicans.

You would be surprised to know that back in 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower did just that. He had the INS conduct Operation Wetback in which 80,000 illegal alien Mexicans were deported. INS also claimed that between 500,000-700,000 fled the country on their own in fear of being deported.

That could never happen today. Not only because our society would not tolerate the term 'Wetback', or the thought that INS was going door to door in predominantly Hispanic communities. It couldn’t happen because our government doesn’t have the courage to do what is right for this country!

The United States Border Patrol state that 10,000 illegal aliens enter this country every day. Of those, 3000 are apprehended. That means 7000 get through every day, 210,000 per month, 2.5 million every year.

Our government, the people you vote for, pander and cater to these criminals by providing them with benefits they are not entitled to and offer them amnesty in the guise of guest worker programs and pathways to citizenship.

Did you know that the United States allows more legal immigrants into this country every year than the rest of the world combined? We are generous enough with our immigration policy. Now we are expected to open our arms to 2.5 million illegal immigrants every year as well? I think not!

A resounding 80% of the American public want our borders closed. A good percentage of that number want all illegal aliens deported. So why isn’t our government listening?
Part of the reason can be placed firmly upon your shoulders. You continue to vote for the same political hacks who owe their allegiance to big business and special interest groups. Your opinions mean nothing to them.

If you think that only the Democrats are supporting illegal aliens, think again. George W. Bush, a Republican, has stated he will sign a guest worker/pathway to citizenship bill for the estimated 20 million illegal aliens in this country. John McCain, presidential hopeful, and also a Republican, is at the forefront in the Senate to push for that very legislation which would grant these illegal aliens citizenship. So you cannot say it is a Democratic problem.

The Republicans had control of Congress since George W. Bush took office and they did NOTHING, N-O-T-H-I-N-G, to stop this invasion. Yet you still vote for them because they are the lesser of two evils. They are the same and you would not be able to deny it if you would only open your eyes.

Finally, if you think that these immigrants only come here looking for work and a better life you are blind and deaf to the truth. These people want the land back that we took from them. They want the white man out and they are willing to do anything to achieve their goal. Don’t believe me, read the following.

"Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die ... Through love of having children, we are going to take over."
Augustin Cebeda, of the Brown Berets, at a rally in Los Angeles July 4, 2000

We have an aging white America. They are dying. They are sh----- in their pants with fear! I love it! We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him!"
Jose Angel Gutierrez, political science professor at the University of Texas at Arlington

"Because our numbers are growing ... [some are] afraid that we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They are right, we will take them over, and we are not going to go away – we are here to stay, and we are saying 'ya basta' (enough!)."
Richard Alatorre, former Los Angeles city councilman

Remember: 187 is the last gasp of white America in California. Understand that. And people say to me on the Senate floor when I was in the Senate, 'Why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs?' And I tell my white colleagues, 'because you're going to need them.'"
Art Torres, former California state senator and chairman of the California Democratic Party

"California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn't like it should leave."
Mario Obledo, co-founder of the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, or MALDEF

These people, the illegal aliens, and their spokespeople have declared war on America. Unless we that through our heads we will never get the proper mindset to fight this invasion. If you truly care about your country, about your future and your children’s future, you had better wake up and start paying attention to what your elected officials are doing in regards to illegal aliens. They need to be held accountable to the people of this country, not a bunch of wetbacks. There I said it, I guess that means I am not politically correct. Think I care? Neither should you.
