The Truth about Immigration
The Truth about Immigration

Everything negative youve heard about immigration is true. In fact, all the election cycle talk about lazy parasites pouring over borders to leech off another nations resources doesnt go far enough in explaining the gravity of this ongoing crisis. Scream it from the mountaintops (or at least on your blog): Immigrants are destroying any and all hope of for planetary survival. Illegal aliens are Public Enemy #1. Foreigners are terrorists.

If you dont believe me, just ask any sweatshop worker in, say, Vietnam

The perfidious colonizers I refer to, of course, are the insatiable transnational corporations setting up camp all across the Third World. Whether it be Nike, The Gap, Wal-Mart, or any other taxpayer-subsidized bloodsucker, these crafty illegal aliens cant be stopped by constructing a mere wall. They travel with impunity on the wings of government subvention and cunning, relentless propaganda. Thanks to decades of conditioning, even the victims of these soulless migrants will voluntarily pay for the right to wear a shirt bearing their corporate logo.

One would not be engaging in hyperbole to characterize these illegal invaders as terrorists. Forget color-coded alerts, staged arrests, and manufactured scares. Put aside those times you were forced to remove your shoes at the airport. As defined at Dictionary.com: an overwhelming feeling of fear and anxiety and/or an intense, overpowering fear characterize brand of the terror I speak of.

While the corporate media obscures the real terror and trains its focus on the latest battle between Dubya and Osama (or the current villain of the day), the primary conflict on the planet remains unchanged: globalization from above vs. globalization from below.

2. excellent!!
Our government seems to have some immigration issues..owned as they are by multi-national corporations. The Pentagon is a multi-national corporation unto itself.
