Combatting Left Wing Propaganda

An article in The American Thinker examines the ways the left manages to change the dialog about concerns of the American people in order to support their seemingly indefensible positions. There is also a warning that the Tea Party should not count on the established Republican hierarchy to take advantage of the current voter unrest due to their history of "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory".

One suggestion is that, rather than attack the illegal problem as a whole, where the "race card" is currently being used to counteract widespread concerns, Republicans should key on the criminal element of illegal immigration. For this the liberals have no defense.

The exception is the criminal element, which has been too often overlooked. It is estimated that up to 10% of all illegal immigrants are felons, a number high enough to suggest deliberate dumping. The results are commensurate. According to William Bennett and Seth Leibsohn,

Illegal immigrants account for 16.5 percent of those sentenced for violent crimes; 18.5 percent of those sentenced for property crimes; 33.5 percent of those sentenced for the manufacture, sale, or transport of drugs; and 44.4 percent of those sentenced or forgery and fraud in the Phoenix area.
