Commentary: The Marxism Behind the Open Border

Illegal Immigrants
by Melissa Mackenzie


America’s illegal immigration problem created by President Joe Biden’s administration embodies an ideology and achieves a very specific purpose — one that receives nearly no mention because to note it would reveal the game. Illegal immigration is a classic Marxist redistributionist plot. In this case, what’s being redistributed is America’s wealth to third-world nationals with no discernible skills and no intention of becoming “American.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, acting on behalf of the Biden administration, worked tightly with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell to craft a terrible piece of legislation meant to jam not only House Republicans (McConnell’s favored enemy) but the people the House members represent.

Chuck Schumer and the president’s motives are not the same as Mitch McConnell’s.

McConnell’s paymasters are a different group of people: namely, big businesses seeking to keep labor costs low and fill increasingly difficult servile positions, like workers at meat processing plants and dishwashers at restaurants. The rationale for McConnell and the elites he represents is high minded: If labor costs increase, inflationary pressure will increase, and the economy will tank and be more precarious than it is. In addition, business leaders are looking toward a potential Trump administration and recoiling. The border will be shut, and real wages for American citizens will increase because there will be fewer workers. This is anathema to them because it affects the bottom line. In short, the open border is about money, honey.

The open border is about money for Democrats too. Well, money and power. But it’s different paymasters and different motives. In the Democrats’ case, they possess an underlying belief that they’re citizens of the world. The West, the evil colonizers, do not deserve the largess they enjoy. It is ill-gotten gain taken on the backs of the poor, indigenous people. Throwing the borders open creates “fairness.” These folks tromping through Central America deserve everything the white colonizers have. And, so, open the borders and let them in and let the American taxpayer pay for them. The oppressed deserve to be taken care of by the oppressors.

In addition to redistributing the populations of the world and redistributing the money of the evil Westerners at the top of the heap, Democrats (and the world elites like them) can redistribute tax dollars to favored leftist institutions that profit from all the evils brought into America and the West, generally. There are non-government organizations (NGOs) run by Marxists who happily take the spoils of the failed American state and use it to pay for, clothe, feed, house, transport, and redistribute the illegal immigrants. In addition, all the drugs and human trafficking walking through America’s borders daily benefit Democrats too! California just received $600 million in American taxpayer dollars to deal with a drug and homeless problem created by Democrat open border policies. Little of the money goes to people in need. Most of it lines the pockets of corrupt grifters living off the misery of the drug-addled, mentally ill, and hopeless.

In this, Biden, Schumer, and McConnell agree: They know better than the American voter. They, the elites, do not care one iota about the America of yore. They don’t care about American culture. In fact, they’d like Americans to leave behind their individualism, independence, and ingenuity. They’d like them, like the new immigrants they flood America with, to be dependent, ignorant, and desperate. They want Americans to shut up and take it.

America’s leaders — malevolent, filled with malice, self-dealing, and driven by either a crass facsimile of capitalism or a modern Maoist version of Marxism — are not alone. All around the world, socialist leaders are redistributing people and their own country’s resources. They’ll say it’s because of the population bust — that they need more workers. But like America’s leaders, they’re also driven by a desire to dilute their own free population’s will to fight the power that the elites enjoy when governing a dull-witted and depressed populace.

In Ireland, the locals are rioting against illegal immigration. This was all prompted by a legal immigrant’s stabbing of a native Irish girl. Ireland’s leaders are calling their own voters racist for not wanting their culture subsumed by people who will not, cannot, assimilate.

France and the Netherlands fight the farmers unwilling to surrender their lands to the grubby elites looking to feed the people bugs. Again, this is a Marxist plot: redistributing the pollution to China and third world and developing countries. The West is too rich and destroyed the planet. To pay for their greed, Westerners must stop farming, must starve, while China and India belch into the atmosphere. All of this, mind you, is based on shoddy science of dubious value and presumes that more CO2 is a bad thing. The ultimate goal, though, is power over people — telling the people how to live, what to eat, where they can go, the jobs they can have. Meanwhile, the elites will eat their steaks, fly their jets, and enjoy their coke and underage hookers trafficked through the border.

The Western elites hate their citizens when they think of them at all. What they love is money and power. COVID opened a world of power heretofore unthinkable. The elites longingly looked at China’s totalitarian response and, since the end of the pandemic, have sought ways to extend their power and use it. These hapless illegal immigrants are pawns in a power game couched in the flimsiest of ideals used as barely-there coverage to gain and keep power. Yes, pro-open-border CEOs and NGOs get the financial benefits of these people, but that’s an interim good. Long-term, these foreigners create the foundation of a society made by and for the elites: ignorant masses voting for their own survival and disinterested in the culture they’re consuming and destroying.

The border bill put forth by McConnell and Schumer should be viewed with derision and scorn. It should be utterly rejected for the culturecidal, power-hungry dreck that it is. McConnell has joined hands with the Marxists and agreed to destroy America in the long term for short-term financial gain. This devilish deal is being bargained all over the world.

Ultimately, the diehard Marxists in China win — they continue to pollute, continue to degrade the West with corrosive ideology and map out ways for the third-worlders to easily make it to the border. The elites are naked and fat and the citizenry disheartened, diluted, and weak. The border problems are engineered for this exact purpose: to create a flattened Maoist world where all are equally miserable and destitute, ruled by the few and fabulously wealthy in power.
