As I keep saying, it's not just the liberals and neocons who perpetuate this myth about illegals and their good intentions. It's all too many libertarians, too. One of the more idiotic denial-of-reality branches of libertarianism is the Objectivist group (our friend Baloo likes to call them 'Obnoxiousists'), who are right up front in the open-borders bandwagon (except for Israel, of course. Always except for Israel).
One of them, Harry Binswanger, has just advocated not only that we welcome illegals, but that we also... Well, I'll let John Rocker tell you. This from World Net Daily:
WE OWE ILLEGALS AN APOLOGY?
Exclusive: John Rocker hits amnesty Republicans for 'surrendering to colonization'
You ever read something so stupid, you weren’t immediately sure if it was supposed to be hyperbole? Harry Binswanger, an acolyte of Ayn Rand and Objectivism, just published what amounts to the most asinine column in the history of columns – published at Forbes.com, it’s titled, “Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants Is Not Enough, They Deserve An Apology.”
Atlas didn’t shrug because of the growth of the state; Atlas shrugged because of this piece by Binswanger, hoping to shake individuals such as him off his back. It is these open-border fanatics who advocate the same policies that turned the once golden state of California into the actual manifestation of their ideas.
And yet, Binswanger is still delusional enough to believe that illegal aliens are the answer to creating Rand’s fabled “Galt’s Gulch.”
Take this line from his Forbes.com piece:
“The illegals came here because they value America. They broke an unjust law in order to live a free, better, richer life. In the vast majority of cases, obeying anti-immigration laws would mean never getting to live here. It’s a life sentence.”
Illegal aliens don’t value America – they value the type of conditions Americans have created in America, which, absent of actual Americans, don’t exist.
