Jim Messina, Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2012 and the chairman of liberal stormtroopers Organizing for Action (OFA), has a new job. While OFA continues to push for amnesty for illegals in the United States, Messina has hopped the pond to work for UK Prime Minister David Cameron and the Conservative Party as they start doing something novel: enforcing the UK’s immigration laws. British Border Agency officers swept through train stations in London, and 130 people were arrested in those sweeps. The British Home Office has launched a billboard campaign, whereby vans and buses emblazoned with the message GO HOME OR FACE ARREST send a clear message.
Needless to say, liberal online outlets like Talking Points Memo are in a lather about Messina’s recent choice of employment. In a screeching article entitled What Is Messina Thinking?, TPM highlighted Messina’s past as an Obama aide, the OFA’s agenda in support of amnesty, and asked how it was possible for Messina to go from one extreme to the other.
It’s called money, and liberal political activists with money think scruples are money in Russia and morals are paintings on walls. In fact, they’re not even liberal, because amnesty has nothing to do with altruistic concern for illegal aliens; like the Affordable Care Act, the amnesty bill is at its core a gigantic giveaway to Big Business. Rank and file liberals might think they accomplished something by electing Barack Obama; to the extent that their policies can be utilized in the interests of corporations, they can make progress on their favorite issues.
It’s akin to the conservative that thinks government is too hard on business, ignoring the $29.3 trillion in bailouts government gave to banks and the continued subsidies to the financial industry that keeps Too Big To Fail too big to fail. Governments want to get elected and businesses want to get more of your money; the combination leads down the primrose path to bailouts, subsidies, and away from free market capitalism.
Liberals can’t comprehend this, largely because of the mental and cognitive defects that lead to liberal infections. Anyone who observes Jim Messina and is shocked that professional political operative went to work for a politician like David Cameron after working for Barack Obama is too stupid to comprehend that Messina, like any prostitute, is going to go to the john who can pay him for his services. He’s not going to question what the john wants, because johns don’t pay you to ask questions about what they want.
Once David Cameron gets elected, he’ll have his come to Jesus moment and amnesty will set in over in Britain, just as it has over here. After all, Barack Obama led the way in deportations all the while biding his time and waiting for the right opportunity to get amnesty legislation passed.
