With recent talks about splitting California into three separate states, Calexit’s plan to secede from the Union, and most recently its plan to give half of the Golden State to the Native Americans, I felt it was a good time to talk about one of the “brains” behind Calexit: Shankar Singam.
Last August, Singam did an interview on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show and floored not only the host, but even some Calexit supporters when he said it would be a good thing if the middle class left the state.
“In regards to [the] middle class leaving, that’s actually a good thing,” Singam told a shocked Carlson. “We need those spots opened up for the new wave of immigrants to come up. It’s what we do. We’re exporting our middle class to the United States, you guys should be thanking us.”
Yeah, because that makes sense, right? Singam and others of the same mindset see the state as its own government that should not have to answer to anyone else, especially a president they don’t agree with or want. “If it’s good for the state we’re going to do it, regardless of what the federal law is,” Singham proclaimed.
He continued to say that “We’re a dominant state. We’re a global powerhouse.” Hmm, boast much? The arrogance of Californians is beyond comparison. Singam claimed that the huge number of people moving out of the state – in record numbers, by the way – was beneficial because those Californians would go to other states and spread their values.
What kind of convoluted thinking is that? But he wasn’t done with his idiotic predictions. Singam said “Soon, Texas will be a blue state,” because of all of the Californians moving to the area. Like Texans would even begin to let that happen. People left the state because they were fed up with the state’s values, not to go and try to change other states into the same thing they’ve fought so hard to get away from.
Let Cali be Cali
But that is the idiocy we are seeing with all of these plans to change California into whatever each group thinks it should become. Calexit’s plan wasn’t gaining enough signatures to go onto the November ballot, so it changed strategy and is now planning to give half of the state to the Native Americans – mostly all the federal lands. If this doesn’t help them get enough signatures, what’s next?
Singam’s brilliant idea is to let all the middle class leave in order to make room for immigrants. Okay, who will support these people when they are jobless, homeless, need food, shelter and healthcare? The Native American nation, as it’s being termed, isn’t likely to have the funding or even the desire to support the New California state. The United States certainly won’t want to help a country that turned its back on them.
Perhaps it is time we let California break away and live in their own little delusional world. Fill the state with immigrants and no jobs or housing. Split it into separate states so that they can fight amongst themselves over valuable resources and political standings. Maybe even build a wall around it – at the state’s expense – to keep the New Californians the hell out of the United States. ICE can free up a lot of its personnel by leaving the area to concentrate on other states who welcome the support. How’s that for a twist?
