Colin Powell: ‘I Can See My Illegal Immigrant Laborers From Here’

September 22, 2010

As hard as it is for me to admit this, or even believe I used to think it, there was a time when I really wanted to see Colin Powell run for president as a Republican.  I thought he’d win for sure, and in the limelight of the Gulf War, I thought he’d be a great president.

Then things started to trickle out about him, and my approval for him wilted like a plant that got too much sun and not enough water.  First it was the fact that he was fond of abortion, and from there it was a death by a thousand cuts.

And then he endorsed THE most radically leftist candidate for president in the history of America, and I realized that Norman Schwarzkopf won the Gulf War, and Colin Powell somehow got all the credit because he was the first socially-promoted chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.

And now we’re to this:

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2010
Colin Powell: Illegal Immigrants Fix My House
Former Secretary of State Urges Republicans to Support Path to Legal Status for Undocumented Workers

(AP)   Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that – because they fix his house.

Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is “what’s keeping this country’s lifeblood moving forward.”

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they “are doing things we need done in this country.”

He added: “They’re all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I’m sure you’ve seen them at your house. We’ve got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status.”

Powell did not say whether he’s hired illegal immigrants directly or they showed up with contractors.

Powell was President George W. Bush’s first-term secretary of state and the nation’s top military officer in the presidency of Bush’s father and in the early months of the Clinton administration. Despite his Republican standing – he was once considered a formidable prospect for the GOP presidential or vice presidential nominations but stayed out of contention – he endorsed Democrat Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.

In lamenting the party’s rightward drift Sunday, he said Republicans must not become anti-immigration and spoke in support of legislation that would give certain children of illegal immigrants a way to become citizens if they pursue a college education or military service.

Immigration, he said, offers the U.S. a chance to maintain a youthful population in contrast with the aging of Europe and Japan.

Powell also said “fringe” elements on the right are taking a low road when they label Mr. Obama a foreign-born Muslim and peddle other false theories about non-American influences on the president’s character. Mr. Obama was born in the U.S. and is Christian.

“Let’s attack him on policy, not nonsense,” he said.

How about, “Let’s attack Colin Powell for breaking the law.”

Colin Powell claims that he’s a Republican even though Republicans are a bunch of racists, and even though in every conceivable way he’s actually a liberal.  He says Republicans are becoming “anti-immigrant.”  When the fact of the matter is that Republicans are something Colin Powell clearly is NOT: anti-ILLEGAL immigrant.

Turns out that Colon (i.e., the last part of the digestive system before the turd comes out) Powell is a guy who wants open borders while denying he wants open borders.  It’s fine to have laws against illegal immigration, even though it isn’t; but whatever you do, don’t enforce those laws that are okay to have in spite of the fact that they really aren’t okay.

In his interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Powell said:

“We can’t be anti-immigration, for example, because immigrants are fueling this country. Without immigrants, America would be like Europe or Japan with an aging population and no young people coming in to take care of it.”

If Colin Powell actually believes that, then maybe he was wrong in supporting the murder of 50 million conceived potential citizens that have been torn apart in the abortion mills.  Maybe we wouldn’t need illegal immigrants to come pouring across our borders if we hadn’t murdered actual citizens who would have served the role of “keeping this country’s lifeblood moving forward.”

Liberals constantly inflict abject mayhem on our society.  And, as a redress to the mayhem they inflicted with their stupid and evil policies, they propose still more stupid and evil policies that will afflict us with yet more mayhem.

Just sayin’.

It’s really sad, thinking about what Colin Powell could have been for America, versus the redundant flatulence he has come to be.
