Title: Dick Durbin: ‘Chain Migration’ Is A Racist Term

Quote
Durbin also took offense to Trump’s use of the term “chain migration,” which refers to the ability of immigrants to bring their extended family into the United States.

According to Durbin, the term is racist and offensive to African Americans because it is reminiscent of slaves being transported to the United States in chains.

“I said to the president, ‘do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak to chain migration it hurts them personally,'” Durbin explained. “He said, ‘oh that’s a good line.'”

THIS is why I refuse to pearl-clutch over the term 'sh*thole'. With these people it'll never end until you offer them your throat.

At some point people need to suck it up.

Durban is a proven liar and Leftwing fruitcake. I'm glad Donny blew this immigration deal up if he is dealing with this absurd garbage at the table.

Exactly.  We have to stop allowing the Alinskyites to tell us what we can and cannot say.  Until we do, they will continue to enslave us, the worker class.

Durbin is obsessed by race.  Isn't that by definition racist?

He's obsessed by identity politics, an affliction he shares with just about all on the left, and too damn many on the right.    It is the curse of our times.

Remember kids, 'racist' is a liberal code word for 'criticizing any current or future Democrat voter from a loyal, self-serving special interest group.'

He did OK, considering all the challenges he faced at Glenbrook High.  The Thatchers are proud of him.

You read my mind, honestly.  The first thing I thought of was "Chain of Fools".

Also, a great song.

Is there anything good coming out of the state of Illinois lately?

We have Hillary Clinton, Obama, Durbin, Rahm, and reams of other bad things like a shrine to Barrack on the shoreline.

How about a wall around Chicago to keep the bad inside rather than it spilling out to infect the rest of us?

That is a term widely used throughout American history for many races.  If you look at Wikipedia it doesn't consider slavery chain migration.  I wonder if he finds Restaurant chain offensive too since slaves were cooks to slave owners?  Ridiculous stuff.  I am sure you could find liberal websites talking about chain immigration.

The last time I heard the word "Chains" in relation to slavery, it was Democrat Joe Biteme threatening blacks the Republicans would put them "in chains."

Since the Democrats were the party of KKK members.

I guess that would explain why they are so quick to point fingers at Republicans.  I think there's an Alinsky rule about accusing your opponents of whatever crime it is you are committing yourself.

They just figured out how to have a guilt syndrome that works for them.

If chain migration in his option is racist, I supposed he might be offended by UP YOURS!

They've known that for quite a while, and if the Republicans don't figure out how to turn that weapon away, the Dems will play that fiddle for all she's worth.  It's like in Baseball:  If a pitcher discovers a pitch a particular batter has trouble hitting, the batter can count on a steady diet of those pitches until he can hit it.

They sure do.  All the social programs.  Its like forgive me and while your at it vote for me too!  But I don't think a lot of people know the Democratic history with racism and KKK.

If he said this, how can one see other things he says as being credible. This is ridiculous and absurd.  They will cater to their constituency and they have no principles.

The Democrats really do just want open borders for more voters, okay, DUH!  :thud: They even quoted some Clinton associate with having said that.

But Tucker Carlson, I always liked him but never got to see his show too much, it certainly has been good these past two nights.

I believe a professor, someone from Harvard and he was black was on there, arguing that we should be allowing more people in and Tucker asked him if Harvard just let anyone in?  The prof. could not answer and would go on to say other things.

Then, they had a prof from Stanford and in spite of it being "Stanford", the guy was a conservative, I believe he said 30% of all immigrants are from Mexico, maybe he even said more but he said how our immigration laws are not being "diverse" in this sense.
