Calling John Kelly a Racist is Offensive and an Outright Lie

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly sat down with NPR a few days ago to talk about immigration. His comments weren’t politically correct. He’s a retired Marine Corps General, after all. He’s sharp, he’s direct, and he is honest and honorable. And because he didn’t sugar coat certain facts about the immigrants who come to this country – both legally and illegally – Rolling Stone shat its frilly panties, clutched its pearls, and proceeded to lob accusations of racism at Gen. Kelly.

Oh, NOEZ! John Kelly, said that the “vast majority” of illegal immigrants “don’t integrate well” and “don’t have skills,” Rolling Stone’s mediot Elias Leight wails.

Rolling Stone’s resident “music journalist,” according to his Twitter feed, and Pajama Boy, judging from his Twitter photo, has for the most part stuck to articles about music and entertainment, but several times waded into US politics like Schreck at a State Dinner, and the results are nothing short of ridiculous.

His first order of business is to attack John Kelly – a decorated Marine Corps general, former Commander of the US Southern Command, and a Gold Star Father, who lost his son Robert in combat in Afghanistan, (a heartbreak that Leight will thankfully never experience – mostly because he doesn’t look like he has enough testosterone coursing through his body to even attempt to reproduce) – of racism for stating facts that Elias Leight apparently doesn’t like.

When asked about Sessions’ policy by NPR, Kelly allowed that many illegal immigrants “are not bad people … but they’re also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States,” he continued. “They’re overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm.”

He kept elaborating: “They don’t speak English, obviously that’s a big thing,” Kelly said. “They don’t integrate well; they don’t have skills.”

Does this sound racist, or does this sound like facts liberals just don’t like? We know where Pajama Boy falls on this issue. “This is not the first time Kelly has espoused racist views about non-white immigrants,” he derps, referring to that time John Kelly mentioned the fact that some immigrants eligible for DACA protections were “too lazy to get off their asses” and sign up.

Somehow, this sounds racist to Pajama Boy, so let’s explore some facts that may be uncomfortable for his virtue signaling self, so let’s explore, shall we?

The Migration Policy Institute has some interesting numbers that may chafe Leight’s vagina.

More than 43.7 million immigrants resided in the United States in 2016, accounting for 13.5 percent of the total U.S. population of 323.1 million, according to American Community Survey (ACS) data.

In 2016, Mexicans accounted for approximately 26 percent of immigrants in the United States, making them by far the largest foreign-born group in the country. Indians were next, comprising close to 6 percent, followed by Chinese (including immigrants from Hong Kong but not Taiwan) with 5 percent, and Filipinos at 4 percent. Immigrants from El Salvador, Vietnam, and Cuba (about 3 percent each), and those from the Dominican Republic, South Korea, and Guatemala (2-2.5 percent each), rounded out the top ten. Together, these groups represented 58 percent of the U.S. immigrant population in 2016.

In 2016, almost 45 percent of immigrants (19.6 million people) reported having Hispanic or Latino origins.

In 2016, approximately 49 percent (21.3 million) of the 43.4 million immigrants ages 5 and older were Limited English Proficient.

Approximately 11.6 million Mexican immigrants resided in the United States in 2016, according to the ACS. Mexicans accounted for 26 percent of all U.S. immigrants, down from the peak of 30 percent in 2000.

Now, let’s also remember that Kelly was referring to illegal immigrants when he said they aren’t educated and don’t integrate well. Is it really surprising that people who are here illegally and who risk deportation if caught don’t integrate well?

Is it really surprising that people who have no resources to hire attorneys or other experts to navigate the bureaucracy to enter this country legally don’t integrate well?

And if we really want to examine the facts, let’s look at the education levels of the Latin American immigrants writ large.

An average of 25.7 percent of Latin American immigrants have a college education (Bachelor’s degree) or higher.

An average of 16 percent have a less than 9th grade education.

The majority of illegal immigrants come to the United States from Mexico.

Mexico is at the near bottom for education of all immigrants in the United States when it comes to education, according to the Migration Policy Institute. The most educated immigrants come from Venezuela.

While immigrants writ large tend to commit crimes at lower rates than others, the same cannot be said of illegal aliens.

The vast majority of illegal aliens use fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers.  They possess fake drivers’ licenses, phony “green cards,” fraudulent birth certificates and any other documents that U.S. citizens and legal residents have.  In addition, they falsify I-9 forms under penalty of perjury. Thus, the average illegal alien routinely commits multiple felonies –forgery, Social Security fraud, identity theft, and perjury.

This criminal activity is routinely swept under the rug in order to protect the myth of the law abiding illegal alien. However, when pushed, even the strongest supporters of illegal aliens are forced to acknowledge that the vast majority of illegal aliens commit multiple felonies. In fact, the Social Security Administration and New York Times report that approximately 75 percent of illegal aliens have fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers which is a felony. The ACLU accepts this figure and uses it to show that illegal aliens pay payroll taxes.

So how is John Kelly wrong?

How is telling the truth racist?

Here’s a clue: it isn’t. And no amount of virtue signalling outrage from Pajama Boy will change the fact that the man who has dedicated his life to serving our country, who has brought order to a chaotic White House, who could have happily chilled out his retirement years, but chose instead to serve once again – first as DHS Secretary (a job for which he was the most qualified candidate bar none, given his experience as SOUTHCOM Commander), and now as White House Chief of Staff – is not even remotely racist.

John Kelly spoke the truth, and Pajama Boy isn’t fit to lick his shoes.

    The metro sexual male should be ashamed to even identify as a man.

    According to the Mexican government, approximately 90% of the population of Mexico is white. Most Latin American and South American nations have majority white populations as well, although not quite so high as Mexico.

    Seems rather bigoted, to me, to assume that the governments of these nations are too incompetent to know how to conduct demographic surveys. Or to assume that only English-speakers are true whites… One or both of these must be the position held by Progressives.

    I saw a comment on an Australian blog about their perspective on immigration. Thought it was right on point and simple. FIFO. Fit In or F*** Off.

  • Unknownsailor says:

    Pajama Boy needs to be pointedly (and repeatedly) asked when he stopped diddling little boys.

    When said Pajama Boy gets all sputtery with outraged indignation, it needs to be pointed out that a pedophilia accusation against *him* has just as much evidence as Pajama Boy’s accusation of racism against Kelley does.

    If Pajama Boy doesn’t *like* being asked these questions, then maybe he should stop the baseless accusations of racism. As long as Pajama Boy does so, so should the pointed questions about his sexual proclivities.

    Make them dance to the same rules they use on the rest of us.

    I served 8 years in the Marines. 3rd LAR BN. It was out of Martin Luther King’s dream – the color of your skin was no more relevant than the color of your hair.

    If this Marine Officer is a racist then I am Groot.

    Oops, the following renders your article irrelevant:

    “And if we really want to examine the facts, …” Sorry, things like “facts” are not allowed. Facts are cisgendered, heteronormative, patriarchal objects of Western colonial oppression. We cannot allow facts because they negate endocrine logic (I hesitate to use the word “logic” because it come from the same source as “facts”).

    (I have to mark this as sarcasm, just in case)

    It’s racist because it’s not progressive! You just can’t even comprehend, Marta! Just. Can’t Even! It’s because you’re racist, too! And you, and you, and you, too! Yeah, the race traitor in the back there, you’re racist, too!

    So how is John Kelly wrong?
    I’ll tell you how, IMHO
    If he used the phrase ” illegal immigrants”. There’s no such thing.
    There are immigrants, that get in line, pay the admission fee, get ID checked by the bouncer, and enter. Otherwise, there are illegal alien migrants. Breaking and entering, trespassing, fake IDs, aided and abetted by sanctuary ofpolitical operatives in American cities of criminal enterprise.
    No matter how long they’ve been here, what they’ve done “for the community”, or what level of academic credentials they may have been bestowed.
