For the sake of posterity, Chris Mathews, if you may, please explain how granting executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens – in any conceivable manner – is even remotely similar to Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation? Only in the deluded, mentally deranged, liberal mind could such a heinous analogy exist. Millions of African Americans were sold by their brethren or taken from their homeland to toil without regard for their lives or rights. It was truly appalling and a front to man’s natural right to be free. Illegal immigrants, on the other hand, consciously decided to cross our borders, disregard our sovereignty and violate countless statutes on their own accord. Even worse, our own government is inciting this travesty by not only luring them here with the guarantee of entitlements at the expense of struggling American citizens, but also by transporting illegals across our borders – without health and background checks – in a rogue attempt to shift the electoral balance of power forever.
Abraham Lincoln, in a truly bold and courageous move, freed the slaves from a ruthless oppression and a twisted cultural ethos. Barack Hussein Obama? He’s merely rewarding those who chose to trespass instead of honoring the legal process afforded to countless immigrants before them. No one has physically taken them from their homeland or enslaved their families for profit. One President acted on behalf of humanity no matter what the consequences; the other purposely manufactured racial discord and hatred by muddling a simple issue for political gain. To compare these two men is a crime unto itself, both in terms of integrity and intellect. Every civilized nation has immigration laws, some much stricter, including impoverished Mexico. If Obama is committing a truly revolutionary act, other than treason, I sure would like to know what it is!
