Harvard University did a study of the difference between competent and incompetent people. They were surprised to discover that one of the primary attributes of incompetent people is that they do not know they are incompetent. In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, these people really believe they are doing well.
This explains some of the acts on American Idol. You know the ones so bad that Simon Cowell used to ask if this was a joke. It is the person who can’t carry a tune that still believes they are star material. I have run into this in the business world on several occasions.
I now realize that this is the number once characteristic of the liberal left. They don’t realize when they are messing things up. This is why they frequently double down on disaster. The most recent example of this is the idiotic crusade to abolish ICE and go back to the system we had before. Of course they have done no research so they don’t know what was done before and they don’t know what ICE is doing now.
I remember a time when my wife and I sitting down to dinner at a restaurant where the chef cooks the meal in front of you on a grill. Suddenly our chef left his station and disappeared. We sat there for several minutes, when another chef came out from the back room, apologizing profusely. We eventually figured out he was the owner. We finally got him to tell us what happened. INS had showed up and raided his restaurant. Several of his employees were detained and others, like our chef, had just run away. The President of the United States at the time was not Donald J. Trump, it was James E. Carter.
Another time the company I worked for had a rather large staff doing janitorial work at an automobile plant. INS came in and did a raid. Several of our employees, about 60%, were found to have fake IDs. We were ordered by INS to fire them. None of them were deported, they were just unemployed. The President of the United States was not Donald J. Trump, it was William J. Clinton.
We had a landscape gardener that was doing a great job for us. I particularly enjoyed him because he was Vietnamese and he never dreamed that I speak Vietnamese. So he and his son would argue with each other over what to charge me and then give me a price that was about double that amount. It was pretty easy for me to negotiate a good deal. Then one day he didn’t show up. About two weeks later a very apologetic Vietnamese man showed up at our door. He said he was so sorry, but we were going to have to hire a new gardener, because the guy who worked for us had been rounded up by INS and deported. Donald J. Trump wasn’t president then either, that was also William J. Clinton.
There was a group of refugees fleeing a horrible situation. They were literally being slaughtered at home. They were desperate to come to America for a chance at a better life. Incredibly evil politicians resisted helping these refugees. They said we already had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, we didn’t want or need these people. Only someone as evil as Donald Trump could be this heartless, right? Except Donald Trump wasn’t President, it was Gerald Ford and he was the one begging states to help these people. California Governor Jerry Brown during his first eight-year attempt to destroy our state, threw a hissy fit trying to prevent Ford from sending Vietnamese refugees to California. He said: “We can’t be looking 5,000 miles away and the same time neglecting people who live here.” Other people calling for the ban were Senator Joe Biden and former presidential candidate George McGovern. You know, the peace and love guy. The same Democrats who refused to help the Vietnamese fight off communist aggression, resulting in the loss of South Vietnam, refused to help refugees fleeing the humanitarian disaster they created.
Remember when Trump said this:
“We are a nation of immigrants, but we are a nation of laws. Our nation is rightly disturbed by the large number of illegal aliens entering our country. Illegal immigrants take jobs from citizens or legal immigrants; they impose burdens on our tax payers. That is why we are doubling the number of border guards, deporting more illegal immigrants than ever before, cracking down on illegal hiring, barring benefits to illegal aliens, and we will do more to speed the deportation of illegal immigrants arrested for crimes. It is wrong and self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws that has occurred in the last few years and we must do more to stop it.”
Oops, Trump didn’t say that, primarily because he would have been guilty of plagiarizing from a State of the Union speech by William J. Clinton in 1995.
Of course all those people out there protesting know none of this. Incompetent people seldom realize they are wrong. This is why several people in Oakland showed up to protest ICE arresting people in their neighborhood. They were proud to stand up for their wonderful loving neighbors against ICE. They failed to notice that the Oakland Police Department was providing traffic control to assist ICE. That would be the same Oakland PD where the Mayor publicly warned illegal aliens of a planned ICE round up and ordered the Oakland PD to stop cooperating with ICE. Perhaps an exception was made in this case because the people being arrested by ICE were allegedly involved in sex trafficking. Duh!
Eventually the truth will become obvious and the ICE SCREAM will quickly melt during our long hot summer. But there will be a price to be paid because these protestors and the liberal democrats egging them on missed something really important. Democrats count on getting 90% of the black vote to get elected. One reason Hillary Clinton lost is because some black voters stayed home. She still got 90%, but of a smaller turnout. Numerous recent polls show that black voters support ICE and strong border control because they think a mass of illegal aliens flooding our border hurts them more than anyone else. They are right about that, by the way. When the ICE SCREAM melts it just may persuade some black voters to consider voting for, gasp, a Republican and it will definitely convince others to just sit this one out. If that happens the melting ICE SCREAM will take the dreams of a blue wave down the drain with it.
