Williamson now wants to deport Melania Trump.
He said so in a column, which somehow was posted online without anyone bothering to fact-check. Missus Trump No. 3 is an American citizen. Breaking news, National Review: She became a naturalized citizen in 2006.
From Kevin Williamson:
Trump likes to proclaim that our inability to enforce our immigration law is an existential threat, like terrorism: “Either we have a country or we don’t,” he says. When it comes to such threats, Trump’s tough-guy posturing encompasses all sorts of things: leaning on private companies and using the law to penalize them if they will not toe his line on immigration, violating the rights of U.S. citizens, and, famously, his pledging to treat the families of terrorism suspects like terrorists themselves, to be “very hard on the families.” Trump has publicly stated that — his words here — “a young and beautiful piece of ass” is a shield against all criticism. But the third/current Mrs. Trump is literally the poster girl for a modeling agency that is credibly accused of systematically abusing the very immigration laws whose robust enforcement is the purported raison d’être of his presidential campaign. If immigration abuse is an existential threat and getting tough on the families is our new national ethos, there’s only one conclusion. Deport Melania Trump.The column also knocked Trump's junk and include other comments that are a reminder that a few of Trump's critics need to take a vacation, take medications, or take some libation.
In another article, "Father Fuhrer," Williamson said working class people deserve no sympathy. None. From Williamson:
It is also immoral. It is immoral because it perpetuates a lie: that the white working class that finds itself attracted to Trump has been victimized by outside forces. It hasn’t. The white middle class may like the idea of Trump as a giant pulsing humanoid middle finger held up in the face of the Cathedral, they may sing hymns to Trump the destroyer and whisper darkly about “globalists” and — odious, stupid term — “the Establishment,” but nobody did this to them.
They failed themselves. It wasn't Beijing. It wasn't even Washington, as bad as Washington can be. It wasn't immigrants from Mexico, excessive and problematic as our current immigration levels are. It wasn't any of that.
Nothing happened to them. There wasn't some awful disaster. There wasn't a war or a famine or a plague or a foreign occupation. Even the economic changes of the past few decades do very little to explain the dysfunction and negligence — and the incomprehensible malice — of poor white America.
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too.Rush Limbaugh has praised Williamson as a gifted writer.
I do not see the talent. All I see is a jerk who is tied to an ideology based on unbridled free trade and open borders that is as false as socialism, and communism -- and just as insolent and hostile to the victims of their misguided economic theories.
That such a fool would deport a U.S. citizen and would have no empathy at all for working class people or poor white America is to be expected.
