According to the transcript of a 2013 speech she gave to Goldman Sachs executives, Hillary Clinton not only thinks the U.S. should liberalize its immigration policies, but that anyone who disagrees with her is not a true American.
“Immigration reform is so important,” Clinton said at the time.
She told the executives that anyone standing in the way of that reform – which at the time meant amnesty and an increase in foreign workers – was simply stuck in the past.
“What I really resent most about the obstructionists is they have such a narrow view of America,” she said. “They see America in a way that is no longer reflective of the reality of who we are. They’re against immigration for reasons that have to do with the past, not the future. They can’t figure out how to invest in the future, so they cut everything.”
Clinton said that it was imperative to ignore those people and get them out of politics.
“They play on people’s fears, not on people’s hopes, and they have to be rejected,” she said. “I don’t care what they call themselves. I don’t care where they’re from. They have to be rejected because they are fundamentally un-American.”
Unlike her “open borders” speech, already revealed by an earlier WikiLeaks release, there’s nothing in this transcript that Hillary should want to deny. This could have been from a campaign speech last Tuesday. It fits right in line with her entire argument on immigration, where she has vowed to use her executive powers to go even farther than President Obama in protecting illegal immigrants. And it certainly fits in with her labelling half of Donald Trump’s supporters as “deplorables.” Any American who doesn’t agree with her doesn’t deserve to be called an American, as far as she’s concerned.
But TRUMP is the divisive one!
In only a couple of weeks, we will go to the polls to determine the direction of our country for the next four years and beyond. What will those years mean for gun rights, the First Amendment, and the Supreme Court? We cannot know. We could be looking at the end of America as we’ve always known it…or Hillary may wind up being a much less potent threat than she’s been made out to be.
But one thing is for sure: If you are concerned about immigration – illegal and legal – then 2016 is the last chance to do something about it. We will NEVER have another candidate willing to speak as frankly on this issue as Donald Trump. We will NEVER see another Republican candidate endorse building a wall.
In Hillary’s America, it will be considered hate speech to even suggest such a thing.
