Subsequent events convinced Brimelow that Stein was right. So he worried about columnist Michelle Malkin when she published her book Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, And Other Foreign Menaces To Our Shores. And now we’re all worried about the Daily Caller’s Neil Munro.
Munro [Email him] (he's the fellow who dared to interrupt President Obama when he was making one of his innumerable immigration statements last summer) is very sound on immigration, especially by the appalling standards of the Main Stream Media. We've quoted him repeatedly. We were particularly impressed by his report last summer that immigrants were displacing native-born workers and Mitt Romney might actually win working class support by, you know, opposing it. [Analysis: In Obama’s economy, immigrants outpace native-born Americans, October 1, 2012] Where else have you heard that? (Answer: here and here.)
Jamie Weinstein [email him] is a senior editor at the DC. And he's, well, not so sound.
Munro had a good story Monday: Obama floats ambitious immigration bill, stops short of simple ‘amnesty’ promise.
But here's how Weinstein "promoted" it in a Daily Caller email bulletin (emphases added):
3.) Here comes immigration — President Obama is ready to propose an immigrations bill, reports The DC's Neil Munro:So Weinstein has taken a story about Obama's push for amnesty, and is promoting it with...his own push for amnesty, including every single neoconservative "surrender on immigration" trope, and throwing in his own irrelevant hostility for Chuck Hagel as an extra. Furthermore, he doesn't even seem to realize that Munro's article contains a discussion of limits on legal immigration."President Barack Obama will soon push for a massive change to U.S. immigration law that would provide conditional amnesty for roughly 11 million illegal immigrants, import more unskilled and skilled workers, and speed up visas for relatives of new arrivals. The ambitious bill was sketched out in a Jan. 12 leak to the New York Times, and it won immediate plaudits from the main Hispanic lobby group, La Raza. The bill does not include provisions favored by immigration reformers, such as NumbersUSA, that want to spur employment of American workers. Their legislative goals include cutbacks to the flow of low-skilled workers, and a cutback in the number of 'family reunification' green-cards offered to relatives of new immigrants."Conservatives ought to get out front on this. We need to secure our borders, but also figure out a humane way to deal with the millions of illegal immigrants in the country. On this issue, Democrats and Republicans should be able to work together and get a deal done for the good of the country. As for President Obama, if he focused his energy on trying to build consensus on an issue like immigration instead of burning down the house with a nomination like Chuck Hagel, perhaps he would accomplish something good and lasting.
For the uninitiated, Weinstein's highlighted phrases mean this:
But, even apart from race, the issue of immigration seems to be peculiarly sensitive.
A few examples of the Curse of Stein in action:
The New York Post fired Scott McConnell for being insufficiently respectful of Puerto Rican statehood:
Lou Dobbs, whose nightly coverage of illegal immigration on CNN was making him nationally famous, until a Treason Lobby campaign resulted in his being abruptly disappeared in 2009:
So given what Neil Munro writes and how Editor Jamie Weinstein obviously feels about it, I suggest that Munro watch his back—and keep his resume updated.
