John Cornyn Hugs Up to Racist Groups- Speaks on Immigration at Rockford Institute Group

20 September 2006 at 10:59:43 PM

Great article, showing that Cornyn will pander to whoever he can (wonder if he was paid to speak?) The best part of this article was discussing what excuse Cornyn might make about why he associated himself with a known racist (and anti-female) group run by white nationalists.

Not surprisingly, Fleming has supplemented his anti-Semitism with a revisionist view of the Holocaust that would make even Holocaust-denier-enabler Christopher Hitchens blush. As he wrote in the comments section on Chronicles' website:

"Personally, I am tired of the whole pro-Jewish/anti-Jewish thing. It is as tedious as the Holocaust myth and the anti-holocaust myth. Millions of Jews died in German camps. It is hardly defense of the Nazis to say that many or most of them might have died of natural causes. The architects of the killing of Jews, Catholics, and Slavs were evil because what they did was evil. On the other hand, there is so much evil to deplore, I do not see why Nazi evil is more serious than Leninist-Stalinist-Maoist evil, just as I do not see why it is OK for Americans and Israelis to target civilians but not for Muslim terrorists. I think it might be useful to quit taking sides, with or against Hitler or Stalin or Israel, and to stand for something."

To be sure, Rockford's conference on immigration ostensibly had nothing to do with "the Jewish question." So Cornyn's office could argue that the senator only lent his good name to it to advance his crusade against the liberalization of immigration laws. Many people oppose a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and most of them claim their opposition is not rooted in racial animus. Fleming, the conference's moderator, is a notable exception, however, complaining in a column about immigration in Chronicles:

"...the plain fact is that we have reinvented America as an abstract nation 'dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.' Every time a new group stepped up to demand its share of rights--and our money--we Americans have given them everything the asked for: blacks, Jews, women, homosexuals. We are programmed to see ourselves in a drama of good and evil, in which traditional Americans are evil, aliens and outsiders are good. The only way to redeem ourselves for our skin color, religion, and traditions is to sacrifice the interests of our children to the morally privileged minorities. Of such people and such a mentality, no counter-revolution can be made."
