Good post from Ace about the open borders lobby in the US:
Dave Reaboi makes different points than I have in mind, but he makes the basic point: all this shrieking about "character" by the neocons, liberal Republicans, and Establishment types is just some ideological camouflage to disguise the real objection to Trump, that is, that it's racist to oppose Open Borders.
They don't want to say that -- they believe it intensely, but they don't want to admit they share yet another key ideological premise with their close cousins on the globalist hard left -- so they pretend this is all about a rather small difference in free trade and the tactics to achieve actual free trade and, of course, about "character."As in the US, so here: 90% of the time when the MSM and the political class - but I repeat myself- are warning about muh rising extremism they actually mean something more like 'rising opposition to open borders'. Hence why there's more chance of the Martians landing than there is of any MSM drone asking Tory MPs about this.
Lest we forget, these people are obsessed with cross-examining mainstream Christians like Tim Farron and Jacob Rees-Mogg about their beliefs. Failing to be sufficiently enthusiastic about random, anonymous butt sex strikes these guys as just crazy, but denouncing Europe as 'too white' is just common sense, init?
