The Klanservative Klanbagging Kochsuckers agree on absolutely nothing except racism. If you look at their stances on just about everything else, they’re all over the place. The one, and only, binder among them is the protection of white privilege at all costs.
That’s why they were undoubtedly driven clinically insane by the President’s Executive Order regarding younger undocumented immigrants. The question now will be just HOW insane, as they learn that one of their greatest heroes agrees with THAT guy.
President Obama’s decision to allow some young illegal immigrants to work legally in the United States drew applause from business leaders across the political spectrum.
Business leaders have long argued that the United States’ current immigration policy makes the country less competitive.
Rupert Murdoch, chairman and chief executive of News Corp., joined Alcoa Chief Executive Klaus Kleinfeld and Viacom Chief Executive Philippe Dauman in issuing a full-throated endorsement of the president’s new policy.
“We hope this prompts Congress to reach agreement on common-sense immigration policies that reflect American labor market needs and American values,” the group said in a joint statement. “Young people who had no choice over coming to this country, have grown up here and now want to become productive members of our society should not be treated like criminals.”
Although it is unusual for a conservative like Rupert Murdoch to applaud an Obama administration policy, this endorsement comes as little surprise, as Murdoch has spent years calling for immigration reform.
The media tycoon appeared on his cable news network, Fox News, in 2010, to push the idea.
“I think we can show to the public the benefits of having migrants and the jobs that go with them,” Murdoch said during the appearance with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a Republican turned independent. The duo has long supported a policy that creates a path to legal status for illegal immigrants who are already in the United States.
The Klanservatives aren’t going to appreciate Murdoch’s sentiments. They are, after all, the people who cheer about executions, want uninsured sick people to die, and want electrified border fences to kill anything that ventures too close to them. In this America that Murdoch did so much to create, he is now well to the outside of his usual gaggle of followers.
The Klanservatives are a beast that Murdoch, and all of the other people who helped Murdoch to create it, are about to lose control of. These people are so angry, and so inflamed by decades of barely-disguised racial diatribes, that they aren’t going to listen to anything that their creators have to say that might be the least bit conciliatory. Most of them are of the walker and cane set, but there is now a sliver of younger ones who have been brought up on this right wing tripe.
Them, I seriously worry about. I don’t know if the President’s actions are enough to unhinge a few of them, but they might be.
