Victor Davis Hanson on “Most Surreal Experiences” in US History


In an article at American Greatness, Victor Davis Hanson said, “Biden appointed Alejandro Mayorkas as Secretary of Homeland Security, whose apparent prime directive was to destroy the southern border.”

“In one of the most surreal experiences in the history of the United States, each night Americans see video clips of thousands of foreign nationals crossing the border en masse with complete impunity—as if the entire corpus of federal immigration law has been dynamited.”

They were dynamited. It’s not “as if.” Meanwhile, Americans are forced to listen to the administration swear the border is secure in one of the worst cases of government gaslighting in history.

Hanson finds it even stranger that Americans have no real idea they are destroying the border.

Hanson listed ten ways their nihilism is destroying the US:

Legal immigration, lawlessness, dependency, endless cash flow to Mexico, cartels, trashing citizens, costs, ending deterrence for good, engraining the oppressor-oppressed Marxist narrative (DEI), and the cruel irony of everyone wanting to come to a country where all the white people are allegedly racist.

Democrats are destroying the United States, and the GOP is fading into non-existence. For the past year, Republicans rubber-stamped everything Democrats wanted.

California is going to give free healthcare to illegal aliens. Meanwhile, taxpayers have to pay for their insurance. California will need a federal bailout since they are already $68 billion in the red.

Remember all the bills that some in the GOP approved, including the Omnibus? Eighteen Republican senators voted for the spending.

Presently, it is estimated there are 50 million illegals in the US. Divide this by 700,000 and you have more than 71 seats that can be attributed to illegals. If only US citizens were counted for the apportionment of House seats there may be a shift of as much as 90 seats. I suspect that this would put the real representatives of the American people firmly in control of our nation. Illegal immigration is a national emergency. We have been invaded. Trump must declare martial law, suspend habeas corpus, imprison those who obstruct his deportation program, He must also deputize at least a million of his supporters to assist in the round up and deportation of nearly 50 million illegals and their children. It will be a massive effort.Our entire nation is being impoverished by these hordes of illegal immigrants. The politics are destructive, but the economics are devastating.The total cost of the illegal immigrant tsunami invasion is ALWAYS misunderstood and vastly underestimated. The cost is ongoing and it has taken an immense toll on our economy. There are an estimated 40 millions of illegal immigrants and their children in this country today. Each one of them has a direct and indirect cost that total about $100,000 each per year including an estimated $35,000 per child for educational expenses and the huge cost of lower wages for native, legal American citizens. It is estimated that without these illegals the average wage would be 12% higher and that loss is an indirect, but measurable consequence of illegal immigration. Add it up. iThe cost is 4 TRILLION a year to the American economy. It is a cost that would not only wipe out the deficit but increase tax collections by an estimated $500B per year. Our entire infrastructure, physical and social, is deteriorating, collapsing because of this influx of basically useless, uninvited parasitic mouths that eat at our table.

I rate the RINO sophist classics professor VDH a ZERO.

He never mentioned the opposition of his RINO heroes to securing the border, which goes back well before Ryan and Mitch blocked a penny for a wall, up until today when the same group of America Last RINOs say nothing about the invasion, and the GOP failed to impeach Mayorkas.

For VDH to miss the cause of the problem, and also be unable to suggest solutions, make him anything but a genius.

He uses the old and disproven idea that this is all caused by stupid leftists, and if we get his RINOs in power, it will all change. That is a LIE.

I like a recent TGP article in which Hoft discredited VDH, for being weak and misdirected. Finally, conservatives are starting to recognize the fraud.

VDH’s rhetoric is the familiar RINO campaign rhetoric. They let the crisis go on, unchecked, then when election time comes, they start lecturing us on how bad things are. Later, when they win, there is no action. Come on folks, you have 2 choices, either VDH is part of the scam, or he is too stupid to realize it.

This is a replacement operation. People who are part of that operation also fund VDH in s RINO think tank.
