Since they don’t want to acknowledge the real facts, progressives like to attack the grass roots tea party movement by calling them names.  As Congress and the White House begin to move amnesty for illegal aliens higher up in their agenda, the founder of the Daily Kos, is waging a preemptive attack on the people who are most likely to oppose their action. Grass Roots patriots and Conservative Republicans. Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, a Democratic strategist and founder of the left-wing blog “The Daily Kos,” says that ‘Teabaggers’ and Republicans ‘Who Hate Brown People’ Will Put the Brakes on Immigration Bill

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, a Democratic strategist and founder of the left-wing blog “The Daily Kos,” told reporters Thursday that “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation sponsored by Rep. Luiz Gutierrez (D-Ill.) — which would provide a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens — has a good shot at passage this year.

But Moulitsas said that “teabaggers” and Republicans who “hate brown people” would try to push back against it.

“I think the votes want to be there in the Senate — I think the House is fairly solid — I think the votes want to be there,” he said of an immigration bill’s chances, “but you have this growing ‘teabagger’ movement that is going to be pushing very hard from the other side.”

Moulitsas said the issue was going to expose a rift within the Republican Party.

“It’s going to be (a) battle of wills –I think –between Republicans who realize the danger in losing the Latino vote for a generation or longer and the danger that poses in places like Arizona, New Mexico and Florida — places that are battleground states that could be torn away from them because of demographic shifts — and those Republicans who demand ideological purity and hate brown people and really kowtow to the Tom Tancredos of this country.”

Progressives such as those that can be found at the Daily Kossac, try to sell people that illegal immigration is a racial issue, that those of us who want to protect the US boarders are inspired by racism, trying to keep out Hispanics. Cases such as the Hezbollah Mole in the CIA case (Nada Nadim Prouty) and the 19-year-old Jordanian illegal alien arrested in September for trying to blow up a downtown Dallas office tower were both examples of why we need to protect our borders. The simple fact is that its more difficult to launch an terrorist attack when you can’t get in the country

Tancredo, a former presidential candidate and Republican member of the House of Representatives from Colorado, was a founder of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus in 1999, and a firm opponent of illegal immigration. Tancredo also opposed the immigration plans pushed by the Bush administration in 2006 and 2007 (The Kennedy/McCain Bill).

Moulitsas made his comments at the liberal think-tank, the George Soros funded Center for American Progress (CAP) , which held a panel discussion with the blogger and some of its staff called: “Next Up, Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”

Anther panelist, Andrea Nill, who writes on immigration issues for the CAP, added to the insinuations of racism, explaining that there is a network of opponents to immigration in America.

“The groups that are going to be driving it are part of this network: we call it the ‘nativist lobby,” she said.

One group she named was the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a group that describes itself on its Web site as “an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit research organization” and a “think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.

The point that the Progressives do not get (or care about) is that those opposed to Amnesty are not anti-Immigration, we are anti-Illegal-Immigration. There is a huge difference. My Great-Grandfather and his family ran across rooftops in Odessa Russia to escape the cossacks. When they escaped the Csar (the real one -not an Obama appointee) they came to America, legally through Ellis Island. There is no problem with people who come through the country legally.

Moulitsas and Nill, meanwhile, both said that while they liked the House bill, and it was a good starting point, the heavy legislative lifting would be left to the Senate, where Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) will begin drafting a version of the bill that could better attract bipartisan support.

Do not believe the propaganda from the progressives at the Daily Kos-sack, they don’t really believe the libel about the people who oppose amnesty being racists. They simply want an immediate infusion of millions of probable Democratic party voters. As for the rest of us, we say, protection of our borders come first.
