They Just Don’t Get It: Michael Steele, RNC, NRSC, NRCC

01 April 2010 @ 20:46

Note: This is a new, occasional feature where I will put the spotlight on those on our side who do not seem to understand what this struggle is all about, what the stakes are, and exactly what it is we are fighting to restore — ie: those who JUST DON’T GET IT.

From the posting It’s April Fools’ Day All Year Long At The RNC by Michelle Malkin we learn:

The RNC’s lavish spending problems at racy nightclubs are bad enough. But I find RNC chairman Michael Steele’s meeting with open-borders zealots to be an even greater obscenity.

The Soros/Tides/Ford/Rockefeller-funded Center for Community Change crowed yesterday that Steele gave them a “commitment” to “to help in securing Republican support for immigration reform:”

Today, ten leaders with the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) met with Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to discuss the future of comprehensive immigration reform in the Republican Party. They walked away with a commitment from Steele to work with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and the party’s leadership to enlist another Republican senator’s support for comprehensive and bipartisan immigration reform.

“We are encouraged by this first step,” said Pramila Jayapal, executive director of OneAmerica, and meeting participant. “Chairman Steele clearly understands that the future of the Republican Party is dim if his party continues to play politics with immigration reform rather than come to the table to work on practical solutions to our broken immigration system. But now we need to see if Republicans will deliver additional cosponsors on the bill before April 30.”

 The New York Times reports that Steele’s office is disputing the open-borders groups’ claims that he promised them anything:

Doug Heye, a spokesman for Mr. Steele, dismissed that account as “100 per cent inaccurate.”

Mr. Steele “makes it a priority to meet with different grassroots activists who are concerned with the direction of our country,” Mr. Heye wrote in an e-mail. “Today’s meeting was meant as an opportunity to listen to concerns and discuss the Republican Party’s strong support of legal immigration.

But what was Steele doing meeting with these agitators in the first place?

Mr. Steele agreed to meet with the immigration groups after they staged a brief but noisy sit-in at the R.N.C. offices on March 22.

Among the groups Steele met with was the radical Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) and other outfits that oppose workplace enforcement and make a living demonizing the men and women who work at ICE and the Border Patrol. Another of the meeting participants, OneAmerica, is staffed with SEIU organizers.

From Stacy McCain’s posting of today John Cornyn and the Eunuch Anacephalic ‘Leadership’ of the Republican Party:

Over and over, we have seen recently that Republican “leadership” in Washington is a joke, their cowardice exceeded only by their incompetence. Pete Sessions and the National Republican Congressional Committee squandered hundreds of thousands of dollars on the Dede Scozzafava campaign, and the NRCC’s candidate-recruitment efforts consist mainly of trying to find “self-funders” — e.g., Ben Quayle types with lots of Daddy’s money to throw around — rather than identifying real leaders with solid values, like Vernon Parker.

The recent foibles of the Republican National Committee are too numerous to mention, but the bondage-nightclub fund-raiser is the tip of a very large iceberg of RNC staff blunders….

Why do Steele, Cornyn, Graham, et. al. insist on acting like you can deal with the Left in an honorable way?  Time and time again the Progressives have made fools out of the GOP and played them for suckers.  Jesus Christ and General Jackson!…How many times do you have to be kicked in the head by the mule before you realize there’s no dealing with it?

I write a lot about the fact that the Leftists, by the nature of their thinking and distorted view of the world, are not living in the reality of the world, how they try to fit the real world into their ideal.  The Right looks at the world as it is and, only then, devises systems of government and laws — the practice is often described as ‘the art of the possible’ [something is only possible if it is capable of happening in reality]. 

The Republican Establishment have an ideal that they cling to — that the Left is as noble in their motives and actions as the Right is  — and try to pretend the world is so constituted that their kumbaya ideal works in it.  They turn a blind eye to any evidence to the contrary and shake their heads in bewilderment and wonder when, yet again, the Left plays them for fools and for suckers.

There’s very little time left to turn back the efforts of the Left to totalitarianize America — their juggernaut is picking up speed with each passing day.  Steele, Cornyn, Graham and their ilk had better open their eyes to the truth: the Left is playing for keeps and will do whatever it takes to achieve their ends.  Like the Muslim is commanded to do when dealing with the Infidel, the Progressives have no compunction about lying and deceiving their enemies through false promises.  They have no moral constraints because they are, by the very nature of their philosophy, immoral [their ideology rejects any moral sense].

This is not a call for the Right in general and the GOP Establishment in particular to behave like the Left.  Far from it.  This is an urgent summons to wake up to the reality that there is no possibility of dealing with the Left and getting any, absolutely any, honorable behavior in return.  To put it another way, one cannot sign any contract with the Left and expect them to follow the terms.  Contracts aren’t sacred to them.  Nothing is sacred to them.

Get your heads out of your arses before they own your arses!

    An excellent post BB! The ideological opposition will consume us and smile like the Cheshire cat. They will do anything and I mean ANYTHING to attain their goals. If the process and spectacle of Health Care wasn’t enough to convince freedom loving Americans of incrementalism to tyranny, we must separate in ways to save ourselves. Mr. Steele is a tepid conservative leaning progressive Republican and only when pressed does he “straighten up and fly right” for a short time. He has been giving off signals from last year when he had to kiss and make up for bad mouthing Rush Limbaugh. It’s probably a bad move to replace a National Chairman at this point, so keeping him in check and questioning every contact with quislings is going to be part of our job. For now.

    Amen, Bro!

    I’ll donate directly to specific libertarian-conservative campaigns.

    Untill Steele grows a pair, not one dime.

    Bob – you are very correct in your assertion that the Elite on the Right are as bad as the Elite on the Left. Sell-outs. Scum. Bought and paid for. On the one hand Soros, on the other hand Murdoch.

    What you have touched upon is why I abhor both parties. Each is scum in my book. They eat at the same trough. They sh*^ where they sleep.

    They all must go, I am afraid. The only allegiance I have is to the Constitution. A woe unto those who do not revere it.

      No half-measures will do if we’re going to save The Consitiution in the end.

    @ E_R

    Murdoch is also on the Left. Was a big supporter of Hillary – still is. Murdoch knows where an unserved market lies – on the Right – but that is just business, not personal ideology. Rupert and George rather share much in common.

    For that matter, neither Party is on the Right. We have a choice between a hard-Left form of state corporatism or a “moderate” state-corporatist alternative, but please don’t suggest that the Republicans are “on the Right.” They haven’t been for many decades – even Ronald Reagan had to deal with liberal Republican pollution.

    The job here si to re-take the Republican Party and make it a libertarian-conservative ‘manichaean’ choice versus the Demos.

    Um, same goes for Palin. She’s stumping for McCain I’ve heard. Sellouts all.

    You have no duty to honor those who would destroy you.

    Well said. I would only add that they shouldn’t back off the HC issue like they are doing either.
