Our federal government really thinks you’re stupid. They want you to think that they’re merely being compassionate towards the millions of illegal immigrants that have and continue to invade the U.S. at an alarming rate, when in reality what they really want is another servant class to do the jobs that more prosperous Americans won’t do.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) just said the quiet part out loud on Wednesday.

As part of a House Judiciary Committee hearing, after Johnson displayed that he didn’t understand what the word “illegal” means, he spoke about how vital illegal immigrants are to our food supply, as well as other jobs Americans no longer want to do because they’ve been convinced by our university system — run by leftists — that those jobs are beneath them.

Think royalty, followed by nobles, followed by serfs. The “democracy” lovers on the left want to and have been decently successful at creating a new class system that the U.S. once fought the British to break away from.

Johnson actually said the following with little to no self-awareness:

Those folks who are coming across [the border] are the ones who are helping to put food on our table. Without them, we are not able to eat. If you turn them away, if all of them were turned away and then this legislation passed, making it easier to get at people who are already here legally, and you have no immigration, then we would have no food on our plates. We would have nobody taking care of the building, the construction of our homes. We would have nobody cleaning up in the hospitals. Honest work that deserves an honest day’s pay.

That sounds all well and good, but unfortunately for Johnson, I speak BS, so I understand what he and the rest of the elites in Washington mean.

This is why they’re constantly yammering about raising the minimum wage — not because they want people to “earn a living wage,” but to entice non-Americans to come to the U.S. and do the politicians’ dirty work.

As journalist Greg Price also noted, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made similar, less veiled remarks when she was Speaker of the House, while blaming it on farmers in Florida and elsewhere.

“And you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers say, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,’” Pelosi said last September.
