I recently wrote about Alaa Mukahhal ; a foul mouthed, whiny, deceptive ‘Dreamer’ activist who’s part of a group of radical Dream activists–like Prerna Lal and Lizbeth Mateo–who constantly run down America with politically correct leftist rhetoric. Even most Dream activists can’t stand these people and I understand why. They really are depressing: people who put down America yet stamp their feet to demand their ‘right’ to be here.
While taking a cab across Beirut, I met this cab driver who LOVES America. When he found out I was American, he was very excited to tell me “America is great! Great like God is great.” He’s never been to the USA himself but his sister and parents live around New York City. His sister’s son has even built a successful restaurant business and has a nice house in New Jersey. THAT is a Dreamer..and they immigrated legally.
In this part of our conversation, the cab driver makes a great point about not the hypocrisy of complaining about America and capitalism while reaping the benefits of it. His analogy is about a well of water as an analogy for what America brings to the world. He says if you don’t want to use those things, fine; don’t drink from the well. But he doesn’t understand using those things and at the same time throwing a stone in the well.
This is the sort of person we want to immigrate to America. If you agree, please RT or SHARE this post!
