The narrative that anyone who doesn’t fall in line with the preferred belief of any Democrat on any given day seems to always lead to the non-believer being labeled a racist, and they are then slandered and insulted by the offended Democrat of the day, and quite frankly it is disgusting. Luis Gutierrez is no different in his vehement attacks against anyone who thinks that anchor babies and DACA need to be stopped.
When President Trump made the much-needed decision to stop DACA and all of its unconstitutional allowances for illegals, Gutierrez got on the war path. This was not only against Trump ad all of his administration calling them “white supremacists,” but the tiny man also decided to rampage against Gen. James Kelly specifically.
According to the Independent Journal Review :
The fallout from Trump’s decision to end the Obama-era political protections for “Dreamers” has just begun. President Trump, who campaigned on ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA, announced this week that Congress will have six months in order to fix the program that gave “work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants.”
In response to Trump’s decision, many commenters and even the former president of the United States have weighed in. However, one of the most fiery and borderline unhinged responses has come from a Democratic congressman from Illinois. Luis Gutierrez represents the 4th district of Illinois and has so for nearly 20 years. The congressman did not hold back in his criticism of Trump’s decision to end DACA, saying in a statement:
Immigrant youth, immigrant families, and our allies in all sectors of American life are here to stay, regardless of the President’s mass deportation fantasies and objectives.
[…] America is a better country than its President and most Americans do not want to see documented immigrants converted into undocumented immigrants.
The congressman went on to say the Trump administration has “white supremacist” goals (emphasis added):
This Administration is on a very dangerous trajectory towards the full-throated endorsement of white supremacy—the likes of which we haven’t seen in the open from a sitting President for a century… But this action on DACA to pull the rug out from under almost 800,000 documented immigrants who have lived here for at least ten years and cast them back into the shadows is the ugliest act of appeasement for the far-right’s white-supremacist goals of them all, so far.
However, whatever one’s opinions are on President Trump, the next line of attack should be unsettling. Gutierrez leveled a double-barrel attack on 4-Star Marine General John Kelly. Kelly currently serves as Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff in the White House. Kelly enlisted in the Marines as a young man during Vietnam and has served his country consistently over the last 40 years, rising to the highest ranks the military has to offer.
Kelly served in multiple war zones and tragically lost his son in Afghanistan when a terrorist IED exploded. Kelly’s son is buried in Arlington.
After all of the service that John Kelly has given to his country, it seems unwise to attack his military credentials, yet this is exactly what Gutierrez did. In the same press release, Gutierrez said Kelly has “disgraced” his uniform and likens him to a “white supremacist” (emphasis added):
General Kelly, when he was the head of Homeland Security, lied straight to the faces of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus about preventing the mass deportation of DREAMers. Now as Chief of Staff, this former general is executing the plan to take away their lifeline and taking steps to criminalize young people who live and work here legally.
General Kelly is a hypocrite who is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear. He has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the President’s actions by “just following orders.”
Lifelong political activist Luis Gutierrez has never served in the military. Calls to the congressman’s office have not been returned for clarification.
To attack a Four Star General’s military service, a man who has honorably served his country as well as lost a son to the kind of conflict that Gutierrez couldn’t even begin to imagine, is appalling. Illegals are sucking our country dry and forcing economic ruin on natural born Americans by the hundreds of thousands daily, yet democrats like Gutierrez would rather see the absolute ruin of a nation before admitting that immigration is flawed on every single front.
Luis Gutierrez and his cohorts need to sit down and shut up. They got us into this mess and it is our time to get us out of it. Race has nothing to do with any of this. Not all illegals are of the same race. This is a matter of constitutional protections for citizens and proper immigration of foreigners, not a petty and made up race war!
