Southern border violations are damaging capitalism

June 22, 2014 

The current chaos on the southern border where the Border Patrol has been overwhelmed by a massive stream of children and associated adults is a straight-forward example of the application of the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven are far-left academics who, back in 1966, put forth the strategy that the way to break the capitalist system was to overwhelm selected parts of it.

Here President Obama and his cronies have employed the strategy to overwhelm and break our border security system and they are achieving significant success.

The drug and people smugglers are now crossing the border almost with abandon while the Border Patrol deals with the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children that continue to pour in.

Obama could use the military to shut this crisis down overnight if he wished, but clearly he wants the breaking of the system to continue. We now have illegal immigrants being shipped to cities across the country with no effort whatsoever to contain and remove them.

This is an outrageous attack on the American taxpayers and an example of grossly irresponsible government.
