Parallel

You know how Republicans don’t give a crap about babies after they are actually born but wail and rant and rend their garments about them during the fetus stage? I was always utterly mystified by that.

Democrats are the same about immigrants. They wail and rant to get us across the border. But once we do cross, it’s all “fuck you, dumb suckers.” And if we do well and thrive, they act like they actually hate us.

I don’t want to assign evil motives to anybody. Most people mean well. But there’s definitely a similarity. It’s like they don’t care about the people who participate in the process because all they want is vicariously to relive the process itself over and over again.

    Yes, more symbolic communication. About 90% of pro-life rhetoric is people trying to portray themselves as virtuous to others in their milieu. About the same percentage of progressive pro-open borders rhetoric is the same.

    Not all political rhetoric is that, but the more an issue is dragged out into the mass media the longer it stays there then the more likely that is the case.

    Children in poverty is not a big issue in the media so there’s no need to take a position publicly and so their underlying emotions which range from indifference to outright hostility are secure. How unskilled people fare when they don’t know the language, the law (or care about the law) is similarly not an issue so their indifference is secure. they care a lot about immigrants getting to the US as long as they’re the right kind (not any kind of competition to them) of course that turns into hostility when the wrong kind of immigrants do turn out to be competition…
