Right. And I’m the flippin’ King of Siam.
Cesar Vargas, an illegal immigrant, told Tucker Carlson tonight:
“I’m an American. Citizenship does not make me an American.”
Tucker pointed out that citizenship is precisely what makes someone an American. Carlson also objected to Vargas repeatedly referring to what “we” as Americans have done. Said Tucker:
“No offense. I wish you wouldn’t say ‘we.’ Hold on, since you are not a citizen, actually. You don’t get to see ‘we.’ I’m sorry. You just don’t.”
As Carlson suggested, the refusal of states to accept the authority of the federal government is what led it to insert troops into southern states to enforce desegregation.
