Last week in my column “Race, Race, and more Race”, I elucidated on the (perhaps obvious) phenomenon of an inordinate percentage of our high-profile news stories inappropriately leaning toward the issue of race.
I’m not going to subject the reader to a review of Desperate Housewives, the ABC primetime soap opera, the fact that it’s obviously yet another Not-so-Big Three offering of not-so-subtle social-engineering, or that I hang my head whenever I learn that a friend or acquaintance is actually a fan of such morally ambivalent sputum.
Oddly enough, this is a column about illegal immigration – as though you haven’t heard enough on that subject. My focus – none other than Eva Longoria, the show’s token dark, exotic beauty, who had a big spread in USA Weekend magazine last week (which referred largely to an interview she did with Ireland Online) in which she put forward the biggest pack of ignorant, specious, pro-illegal immigration swill I’ve heard to date.
Now, I’m not singling out Ms. Longoria because she’s Latina; I’m singling her out because despite the fact that she’s talented and accomplished, she is also a dyed-in-the-wool, archetypal young Hollywood dullard. She could have just as easily been White – but then the USA Weekend spread wouldn’t have carried such “credibility.”
Of course we expect her to say saying such things as she finds it “unfortunate” that some American lawmakers are looking to deport illegal aliens and/or build a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border, and that “Mexicans contribute an enormous amount to our society”. Many of us have become quite used to the inane diatribe that unceasingly emanates from Hollywood dullards. There, are however, several things regarding this piece to which I took particular offense.
The woman stars in Desperate Housewives of all things, an abysmally unabashed example of what Prime Time barrages us with in their promotion of premarital and extramarital relations and promiscuity in general.
Ms. Longonorrhea also claims to work “a lot” with the National Council of La Raza,” (translated: “The Race”) which claims to be (according to their website) “the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States – [which] works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans.” Now, the last time I checked, illegal aliens are not “Hispanic Americans”. La Raza, in addition to its racist appellation, is of course deeply beholden to far-Left interests – which makes sense, of course, given the far-Left’s interest in perpetuating illegal immigration and its attendant chaos.
In her interview, Longoria added: “We’re in this big debate about the future of our immigration laws which is colored by the often negative media portrayals of Latinos in television and film.” What negative media portrayals is this nitwit talking about? She sounds like she just emerged from a monthlong screening of the film “Zoot Suit”.
Further, “Everyone has a right to be treated as a human being.” (No kidding; it’s in our Constitution) “There are slavery lawsuits in Florida right now against some orange growers.” Now, I’m not as familiar with the orange grower case as Ms. L, and I’ll add that anyone who exploits these people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but I would offer that when one sneaks into another country (itself an illegal activity that exposes one to a wide array of unsavory characters and dangerous situations), one automatically increases the personal risk to oneself.
Longoria worked with the John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004. Need I say more?
Longoria was born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1975, not some sweltering corrugated steel hut or lettuce field south of the border (or north of it, for that matter).
Finally, fortifying her apparent belief that any or all of the remaining 5.7 billion souls on the planet ought to be able to slither across our borders at will, she stated in the interview that “I’ve been in the fields with these people and I’ve tried to experience a day in the life of these people. I’m producing a documentary on the labor workers.”
Ahh, – so now she plans to be the Latina Lina WertmÃ¼ller of our age. Just what we need. I say this because there’s no doubt at this juncture that any tripe produced by this Prime Time star will no doubt be hailed as “the most compelling, powerful, (gratuitous accolades ad nauseum)” by the media and would likely win every applicable award imaginable. It would probably, however, be about as accurate as “The Eternal Jew” propaganda film produced by the Third Reich.
Once again, it’s race, race, and more race. What about Longoria’s security and that of her fellow Americans? There’s no thought of that – or didn’t you know: “The Anointed” are unassailable.
If I may, I’ll spell it out once and for all:
99% of the successful entertainers in America have nothing whatsoever of relevance or relative wisdom to impart to the American people. They live in an encapsulated world, surrounded by sycophants, obscene levels of privilege, and ego-feeding propositions 24/7.
As a result of this, they have no idea of how average Americans live or think (most quickly forget where they came from if they weren’t born into the Hollywood environment), nor do they care to.
They have developed a level of arrogance that precludes introspection or deviation from the international socialist views that dominate their industry: Sure, they have it good, but now it’s up to them to see that the powers that be “fix things” for the less fortunate. Those legions of faceless, rich white racists in suits need to pay more taxes, for one thing.
It’s the same far Left propaganda that’s typically aimed at low-income Americans; the danger is that a lot of people actually listen to the Eva Longorias of the world, and that the middle class – we, the majority of Americans – invariably suffer the greatest degree of collateral damage during the course of their misguided, rash and reckless “wars” on poverty and injustice.
