Do we need yet another racial classification for another immigrant group and form of identity politics?
The racial classification the Executive Branch is going to impose will change whites from the Middle East and North Africa into “MENA.”
Do we really need to create another racial identity group in our politics? It looks like a way to get us closer to Brazil’s strife.
J. Marsolo writes at the American Thinker,
This new classification is not being debated in Congress for Congress to vote on it. It is done by an agency regulation that bypasses Congress, which fits the Obama pattern of rule by agency regulation and executive orders. Congress can act only after the regulation is adopted to rescind it, but this happens infrequently. Anyone adversely affected by this would have to file suit to prove that the regulation is unreasonable.
If adopted, the next step will be to view this group as a minority that would benefit by anti-discrimination laws in the 1964 Civil Rights Act and benefit from affirmative action programs in employment, education, and other areas.
Obama is creating another bloc of voters for the Democrats to pander to. This is part of the Obama/Hillary plan to accept “refugees” from the Middle East fiasco created by the policies of Obama/Hillary. These refugees will now be a protected minority that the Democrats expect to vote Dem.
So now we see an additional reason the Democrats want refugees from the Middle East. They want to offer these people special privileges so that they become a permanent Democrat voting bloc.
This gives us a clear picture of how politicians gain power over the people. The strategy is called divide and conquer. The state grows powerful by getting the population to split into groups fighting against one another for government favors.
We don’t need another racial classification. We need to get rid of the ones we have. Black, white, or other, we are all part of the human race.
