Welcome to American Rattlesnake

July 28, 2010

Today inaugurates an experiment that will hopefully mark a turning point in the debate over the intertwined issues of mass immigration and illegal aliens’ presence in our society, both subjects that have been largely ignored or obscured by the chattering class and open-borders elite which shape public opinion in this country. 

The truth is that many people living in this country reject the concept that illegal aliens should be welcomed and embraced by our society. They refuse to accept the notion that millions of unskilled, poorly educated, non-English-speaking immigrants are an asset to our country. They reject the notion that we should welcome them out of a spirit of false egalitarianism and misplaced compassion. They do not want to be told that they’re racist, intolerant xenophobes for merely wanting existing laws to be enforced, or for asking that our cities not become teeming megalopolises, such as Beijing and Mexico City.

The problem is that their voices have been largely ignored in a city, state, and country where too many elected officials support sanctuary city laws, unfettered mass immigration, and the defiance of federal immigration laws intended to maintain the integrity of our borders.

That is why American-Rattlesnake.org came into being, and why, with your support, it will thrive in the coming days. We want to amplify the voice of the silent majority, both in the New York metropolitan area and within the country at large, which sees the status quo of de facto amnesty as untenable, and wants the United States to adopt a smarter, saner immigration policy. An immigration policy that is not determined by divisive ethnic advocacy groups, opportunistic immigration attorneys, and corrupt political operatives, but by the citizens of the United States, informed by a healthy respect for the U.S. Constitution.

In that capacity, American-Rattlesnake.org will work with local and national immigration reform and anti-amnesty political and educational organizations to highlight the issues at stake and to pressure our legislators, corporate leaders, and political candidates to listen to the voice of the people at whose pleasure they ostensibly serve.

This is a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, and we have an opportunity to seize it if we choose to do so. We can emulate the example of the state of Arizona, and demand that our nation’s laws be respected, or we can allow this moment to slip away, and allow the continued anarchy of open borders to grow unabated and swallow us whole. The choice is simple, but we have to act upon it. That’s what this project is all about.


Let’s begin today.
