Quote of the Day

Kerry Howley on the not unracist U.S. immigration policy toward Haitians:

The disparity between the treatment of Haitians and the treatment of similarly positioned, non-Haitian migrants was glaring even before the earthquake. Both the first Bush administration and the Clinton administration tried to craft a more humane refugee policy with regard to Haitians, only to revert back to the initial repatriation policy for fear of triggering an unsightly wave of migrants. You can only read this history through that particular fear; anything less than large-scale repatriation will bring black, poor, unskilled immigrants to American shores in numbers no politician wants to deal with.

The Obama administration has at least agreed to stop deporting Haitians for the time being, which is a start, though it’s worth noting that Canada didn’t require an earthquake to stop sending Haitians back to the poorest country in the hemisphere. I’m of the opinion that a country that can afford to vagazzle itself can afford to allow refugees from a small country in ruins to work on its shores. And when disaster cash dries up—when Americans stop texting their $5 pledges—remittances remain.

I have to support illegal alien welfare parasites because why?

"I’m of the opinion that a country that can afford to vagazzle itself can afford to allow refugees from a small country in ruins to work on its shores. "

Yeah, I can probably afford to sustain about fifty Haitians at their current standard of living. That doesn't mean I'm going to. Especially since they seem to have a culture in which attacking relief workers is much more likely than in other cultures. It isn't my cultures duty to take them in and feed them, especially when we are not allowed to correct their thinking. You want charity from me then you better be willing to give up those characteristics that lead you into your current condition.

PS. Fuck you for using a tragedy to push your extreme views on open borders. You should be ashamed of yourself. If anything Haitians should be ashamed of having a flag which consisted of a white baby impaled on a spike, and their sense of entitlement.

Haitian sense of entitlement

An example of their sense of entitlement being the creation of roadblocks of rocks and bodies in protest of not getting aid as fast as they desire. Where do they get off thinking that charity is an entitlement, and how stupid to block the movement of relief trucks before they have even had a chance to arrive.

Brian, please stop with the fuck you

Thank you.

It isn't my cultures duty to

It isn't my cultures duty to take them in and feed them

Your "culture", whatever that may be, is not a person and does not have property rights to exclude peaceful labor mobility. Kerry is not asking you for a handout; she is asking you to leave immigrants alone so that they can feed themselves and their families.

Especially since they seem to have a culture in which attacking relief workers is much more likely than in other cultures.

So now we treat an entire collective poorly based on characteristics you ascribe relatively higher rates to than other collectives? You don't happen to call yourself an individualist of any kind, do you?

If anything Haitians should be ashamed of having a flag which consisted of a white baby impaled on a spike, and their sense of entitlement.

So a government flag is now justification for restricting peaceful labor mobility? Would a national bird or cuisine also provide justification, or do you just have a thing for flags?

If you do a google image

If you do a google image search of the current flags (with the palm tree in the center, surrounded by spears), in the thumbnails the palm tree does look like something impaled on a spike. Do you happen to know whether the palm tree is schematically based on the baby on a spike? I've seen no pictures of that original flag.

Sorry for the confusion -

Sorry for the confusion - that question is intended for BM. I replied to the wrong comment.

What's this about a flag

What's this about a flag with a white baby impaled on a spike?

You could google it.

You could google it.

I figure if I can't find

I figure if I can't find something within five minutes on Google, it doesn't exist, and then I have to ask the original comment poster where he found it.

Took me a lot less than 5

Took me a lot less than 5 mins. Try quotes. They can be powerful stuff. As I remember, I googled Haiti flag "white baby". Several relevant hits in the first page. I linked to one of them in a separate comment.

To those who read the

To those who read the comment about the baby on the pike being used as a flag, yes it is absolutely abhorrent. Keep in mind that this happened during a rebellion in 1791.
