Excuse Me, But Isn’t That Discrimination?

All the talk about sanctuary cities has caused me to dream about the problem. Last night, in a particularly unexciting dream, it occurred to me that two things bother me about sanctuary cities. One is a very obstinate refusal of our governments to adhere to the laws, thereby making a mockery of our claim that we are a nation of laws. The second is also an hypocrisy regarding our so-called dream of living in a fair world of diversity.  Doesn’t the idea of allowing a segment of people living in America with special privileges smack of discrimination? Haven’t we as a nation fought extra hard to eliminate discrimination? Yet, here we are allowing special cases to be fostered, and expanded as though it was a human right.

How long will it be before we allow gangs to have sanctuary in the same cities? Or, when will we grant special privileges to Syrian refugees? We already grant extra special privileges to Muslims all around the country, like ‘no-go zones,” or prayer rooms. Each of these examples is a form of discrimination, either against the resident culture, or for the special needs of a religion or sect. Laws on abortion, and birth control are also discriminatory.

Another scary example comes to mind inside the prison population. We grant special treatment such as free medical care, sex change operations, and much more to prisoners, yet we discriminate against normal people trying to eke out a living in an honest manner.

If new are to live up to the ideals we so proudly proclaim in our pledge, our Constitution and our anthem we must bite the bullet, and abandon special privileges like sanctuary cities.

  1. Well said! Protectionism militates against fairness.

  2. Two things drive this insanity.
    1. Political votes: Politicians want the votes of any “block” of people they can win over by appearing to support them. They can’t see past the paycheck they get and want to keep that office and money, no matter who votes for them.
    2. Sheeple: Those that are bored, living off entitlements so they follow the cause of the politician that provided them. We used to call them Lemmings.
    That’s just my take on it.
