We Can Fight Tax Hikes Without All Grover’s Baggage

Herd-think, great discomfort with standing apart (which might  lead to a possible exclusion from today’s ‘smart set’), and a concern over financial support or penalties  (scroll down in foregoing link for GOP Establishment examples), are all equal-opportunity vices.  Democrats and their base, Republicans and their Beltway Establishment, and the conservative blogosphere —  all have to be alert to these sometimes subtle barriers to forthright expression.

Do some of these vulnerabilities, for example, explain the continuing failure to spotlight — by too many who sail under the conservative flag –Grover Norquist’s Islamist leanings in particular, as well as his high-immigration advocacy, minimalist defense position, and questionable values posture? 

Nonetheless Frank Gaffney and his analysts, and David Horowitz here and here have consistently belled the Norquist cat on his Islamist record.

Norquist Talks Up Immigration in Indiana

Grover Norquist declared (go to video inside foregoing link) last Friday at an Indiana conference —

“[Immigration] is the most important thing to focus on if you are concerned about the future of the country both as an economic power and as a serious leader of the world and simply as a successful society.”

One wonders what Mr. Norquist’s measures are for a ‘successful society.’

ATR chief Norquist deplored what he called immigration “restrictionists.” He claimed “reasonable, inclusive, comprehensive, immigration reform” makes “good politics.” Listen to his talk right here.

“Mass Immigration” vs. “A Conservative, Low-Tax Agenda”

Last April Jon Feere of the Center for Immigration Studies wrote in “The Alleged Costs of Ending Universal Birthright Citizenship” —

“Anti-tax Grover Norquist helped release the [‘The Cost to Americans and America of Ending Birthright Citizenship’] report , apparently thinking that mass immigration somehow benefits a conservative, low-taxation agenda when it does not. See ‘The High Cost of Cheap Labor: Illegal Immigration and the Federal Budget,’ ‘Welfare Use by Immigrant Households with Children: A Look at Cash, Medicaid, Housing, and Food Program”, and “Illegal Immigrants Receive Billions of Dollars More from the IRS than They Pay in.’” (Highlighting Forum’s.)

Of GOP members of the Congress, Virginia’s Frank Wolf is notable here for calling Mr. Norquist out on his Islamist friends.

Stay tuned for more on the Norquist Wing of the GOP.
