Thanksgiving Talking Points

by the NYYRC Blog Staff


Thanksgiving is that wonderful time of year when most of us give thanks, spend quality time with loved ones, and watch the Detroit Lions play lousy football. A common downside is that you will likely be pulled into a political debate with your vegan cousin that won’t eat grandma’s food or your sister’s “creative type” boyfriend after he makes a ridiculous comment on the situation in Ferguson, MO. Here is our talking-point cheat-sheet to aid you in your response. Go get ‘em!

–The proponents of Obama’s immigration executive order often argue that America is a nation of immigrants, which is what made the country great. Up until recently, immigrants, as a whole, wanted to be American, they wanted to assimilate into American culture, and they wanted to pursue the American dream.
–Obama’s motives are not so much humanitarian, but rather an obvious attempt to build a permanent Democratic party voting block that will support the party for multiple generations.
–After midterm elections that reflect voter attitudes on issues like healthcare, foreign policy, and the economy, the President and Democratic party clearly want to make immigration the main issue discussed in the media.
–As a national party, they have maxed out their support with single women and black voters. Making immigration a top issue allows democrats an opportunity to expand their party base and to distract voters from their unpopular stances on other key issues.
-Obama’s own Justice Department informed him that his actions on immigration are unlawful and unconstitutional. The DOJ issued a memo based on historical precedent and legal concerns that stated how the White House does not have the authority to change immigration law by executive order. “The Executive cannot, under the guides of exercising enforcement discretion, attempt to effectively rewrite the laws to match its policy preferences. An agency’s enforcement decisions should be consonant with, rather than contrary to, the congressional policy underlying the statutes the agency is charged with administering.”
–The GOP is pro-immigration, legal immigration that involves skilled workers and people from all parts of the world, not just Latin America.

–Americans should ask, who has the most to lose if America becomes a true post racial, color blind society. The answer: racial bullies, university and corporate diversity department personnel, and mainstream media journalists (will have fewer default news topics).

–A color blind society is not desired by the left. Discrimination is not just a political issue, it is also an industry. Many have made fortunes on it and will do anything to maintain the income source that is driven by discrimination.
–A close look at Ferguson reveals true intent. Staged, calculated riots to preserve race tensions, from which the Democratic party benefits.

–The MIT economics professor’s comments demonstrate yet again how liberals push legislation by pretending they are not liberals.
–The lack of coverage in the mainstream media proves that the they are not interested in reporting. They are simply an extension of the democrat party.
–”Obama and Gruber know that had they been honest from day one about what their intentions were and how they intended to go about them, they would never have won the election in 2008.” Rush Limbaugh


–The “historic” pact reached by Obama is not a binding agreement and does not include any benchmarks to measure progress or penalties.
–The administration pledged to impede America’s economic progress by promising greenhouse emission cuts of 26 to 28 percent. This will do nothing other than hurt American workers (via pink slips) and consumers (via fuel price increases). Meanwhile, China does not have to do anything until 2030.
–China alone is firing up a new coal plant every eight to 10 days. America could close every coal mine in Kentucky and West Virginia and achieve absolutely nothing except devastating Appalachia and, in effect, shipping its economic lifeblood to China.
–Questions to ask: Does a problem actually exist that is backed with absolute scientific proof? What is the evidence? If one does, how does pact accomplish a solution?
–Former Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel is known to have said “never let a crisis go to waste”. An accurate continuation would be “…and if one does not exist, create one”. The only purpose for this deal is to score headlines, political points with democrat base voters, and preserve an artificial crisis that benefits democrat politicians.

–On October 3, 1863, during the dark days of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln declared that the 4th Thursday of November be set aside as a Federal holiday of thanksgiving and prayer. The idea behind this was that even in one of our nation’s darkest hours, we should stop, reflect, and be thankful to live in a republic that gives us so many advantages and privileges. Lincoln said these should be “solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People.” We should remember this every Thanksgiving and keep in mind the true spirit of the holiday.
