Said the Donald, “I like Jeb. He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”
Now everybody on the Left including Jeb are getting huffy.
Jeb’s response on Good Morning America pretty much sums up why he is not resonating with voters.
“This is a diverse country. We should celebrate that diversity and embrace a set of shared values. Mr. Trump doesn’t believe in those shared values. He wants to tear us down.”
Oh, Jeb. It’s like you go out of your way to alienate voters.
Here’s a value Americans share: it’s called our culture.
I know believing in an American culture is considered racist.
But the truth is, we do in fact have a culture.
And a heritage.
And a history.
And part of that American culture is our language.
Having a shared language is one of the things that unites these United States of America.
Without a shared language, we would have chaos.
Haven’t you ever read the story of the Tower of Babel from the book of Genesis?
We as a nation have a common language. This common language brings us together.
Immigration shouldn’t fracture the American culture. It shouldn’t create divides.
And it isn’t to overwhelm our culture with its own.
Immigration that does not include assimilation isn’t immigration so much as it is an invasion.
This is why it is crucial for immigrants to assimilate. To become American. To join our culture, our traditions, our way of life.
And, here’s the poop, Jeb. That includes speaking our language.
The reason so many object to your positions on immigration is because it does not recognize or respect the sovereignty and culture of our nation.
Jeb, honey. How about you celebrate America?
Do you even believe that America has a culture and heritage that is worth celebrating? Or defending?
The fundamental problem I see in Jeb’s argument is it shows an underlying embarrassment at celebrating America — our heritage, our culture, or way of life.
This isn’t too surprising.
In today’s politically correct, thin-skinned, easily offended environment, coming out boldly in support of America makes the crybabies wail.
And, that, my dear Mr. Bush, is precisely why what Trump has brought to this election cycle is so refreshing.
A large segment of Americans don’t shrink in fear for standing up for our country. We don’t apologize for being proud to be American. We have a culture and a heritage that is worth defending and preserving, and we know it.
We do not believe the false narrative that our only choices are to capitulate to illegal immigration or be branded a racist.
We know that’s a lie.
We know that immigration is to serve the best interests of the nation, not the demands of those who wish to immigrate.
Trump is resonating with these Americans.
And no, Jeb. We’re not racists. We’re not nativists. We’re not xenophobes.
We simply believe that we have a culture and heritage that is worth celebrating and defending.
And because of that, we believe immigration should only occur in such a way to allow the immigrants time to assimilate and become a part of our culture and heritage.
Clearly you disagree.
So, how about this. Let’s conquer Mexico for Jeb!
Now, we won’t make Mexico a state. We won’t even turn it into a US territory. We’ll just conquer the country and turn it over to Jeb who can declare himself el Presidente for life.
Then, he can celebrate the Mexican heritage and culture all he wants and leave America to be, well, American.
He can air commercials here in the United States (in Español, mind you) encouraging Mexicans in the US illegally to come back to his Mexico out of love — promising them free healthcare, food stamps and welfare checks courtesy of the rich Mexican citizens.
He can nationalize the Mexican education system and enact Núcleo Común for all the Mexican schoolchildren.
Naturally, he’ll want to repeal Mexico’s onerous immigration laws, but I’m sure he’ll be up to the task.
Meanwhile, here in America, we’ll secure our borders, limit immigration to allow for assimilation, reduce the size of the Federal Government, build up our military, unleash our private sector and get our economy growing again.
Of course, restoring American greatness may make Jeb want to come back. So, let’s make sure we build that border wall as well.
