|BSERVANT CRITICS OF the illegal immigration plague sweeping across the United States point out the irony that, while those sneaking across the boarder often have no desire to acclimate to the culture into which they are intruding, they have little problem accepting American money. However, if a policy implemented by one business catches on eventually, those sneaking into this great land will more likely find an odious trashphile rather than a shining city on a hill.|
A Texas-based pizza chain has instituted a program to accept pesos as payment for the eatery's wears. The company claims it is implementing the program to tap into the Hispanic market (and in the very same breath those advocating such a marketing strategy would admonish the rest of us that they never consider ethnicity in reference to social matters).
For decades, the American people have been cowed into not only accepting but also applauding any policy exempting certain groups from the regulations and expectations imposed upon the rest of us for fear of being labeled with one of those nebulous yet ominous chastisements such as "racism" or "intolerance". However, things have gone so far and even though it's probably too late to do anything as the time to have corrected the problem was back when Pat Buchanan brought up the issue in the early 90's, average Americans are just about sick of the demise of their country and are finally speaking out against this demographic and linguistic foolishness. However, as usual, they are the ones being lectured and castigated by various elites for not applauding the cultural surrender of the United States.
The pizza joint's owner is quoted in a January 9, 2007 entry titled "Pesos For Pizzas" posted on USA Today's "On Deadline Blog" as saying, "You know what's really sad is we've received a number of emails at our website...and many of them are just filled with hate and it's very sad...People are linking it to patriotism, people are linking taking pesos for a hot pizza to illegal immigration."
Critics are not the ones making the most to-do over the policy. Some falderal trotted out to commemorate the promotion at a number of these eateries included banners not simply reading "Pesos accepted for payment" but rather gushing "Welcome Countrymen".
Though the effort to merge all of North America into a continuous Third World ghetto steams along, Mexicans are not yet our countrymen. Furthermore, anyone crossing the border to the extent that they haven't or refuse to learn English still see Mexico rather than the United States as the nation to which they are ultimately loyal.
The owner of the pizzeria muses, "I just didn't realize there was that much hate out there." If he thinks the worst of it is about failure to applaud the economic subversion of the United States, he has no idea whatsoever of the hate that is actually out there, much of it emanating from those enabling those this misguided restaurateur heralds as his fellow countrymen.
In his classic Death Of The West: How Dying Populations & Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country And Civilization, Pat Buchanan points out that while Caucasian Americans are basically forbidden from enunciating but the most colorblind of sentiments, the same does not apply to the forces of Hispanosupremacism before which spineless liberals cower. The slogan of MECHA, a socialist organization spreading the message of violent insurrection among college students especially, is, "For our race, everything. For those outside our race, nothing (130)."
So no matter how much the owner of this pizza parlor might want to brownnose these migrating insurgents, they will never share his sentiments of a common transethnic nationhood. If other revolutions throughout history are any kind of indicator, this Chief Boyardee's head will be among the first finding his head atop a pike when these violent swarms decide to finally show the country their true colors.
In all fairness, this is not the only business undermining this nation in pursuit of filthy lucre. Some of the nation's most prominent financial institutions are undermining this great country as well.
While most assume that it is the politicians that have the ultimate say, one could very well make the argument that this is rather a distinction belonging to the bankers of the world. For while the politicians are in theory accountable to the people, the bankers for the most part only answer to themselves and may in fact control the politicians to an extent as the bankers control access to the money that the politicians crave.
A while back, I went to the bank. While waiting to take care of my business there, I picked up a sheet listing the kinds of identification acceptable for opening an account.
Among these documents requiring people to prove their right to be here included a driver's license, passport, and voter registration card. However on the list was a document known as a "matricular consular" which are distributed by the Mexican government in what essentially amounts to an act of war so that its population so might be able to circumvent our laws and undermine our economy.
Americans --- citizens of the United States --- are told under the banner of the lofty sounding legislation such as the Patriot Act and the like that they must willingly submit themselves to a litany of new surveillance programs such as more stringent requirements to obtain a legitimate ID. However, its seems foreigners not even having enough class or character to come here in the proper manner are going to pretty much be handed the rudimentary tools necessary to function and prosper here without even having to fully prove who they really are. Thus in the final analysis, such regulations are not so much about keeping troublemakers out as about keeping those with the right to be here corralled and controlled.
It is argued that America (or rather certain businesses) need a steady stream of migrant laborers to do jobs Americans refuse to do or rather to keep wages low and depressed. Now that businesses one by one are beginning to take in both dollars and pesos, what is to stop them from eventually arguing that because of the administrative costs of having to deal with both currencies they can only afford to hire workers willing to accept payment in pesos? If those in the highest positions of influence are willing to set aside this nation's socio-linguistic foundation in their attempt to establish a new brand of feudalism, couldn't they also just as easily implement two tiers of currency as well?
An old adage admonishes to put your money where your mouth is. Those willing to accept an inferior tender over that of their own country are just a few notches above Judas Iscariot and at least he had enough sense to demand precious metals and not worthless paper.
