Democrats undermine the special-ness of becoming an American

Delia, age 13, called the Rush Limbaugh radio show seeking information for a school assignment. She had to debate whether or not it should be easier for immigrants to become U.S. Citizens. Delia asked Rush his thoughts on the topic.

Here's a small excerpt of Rush's brilliant answer.

"In order to preserve this country, it ought to be a very specific task for somebody, not a citizen, to become one. If they come here via legal immigration, they do have to take a test. And those who endeavor to become citizens and pass the test, it's one of the most proud days of their lives. If you've ever been to a naturalization ceremony or ever seen one televised, it's one of the proudest days of their lives, to become, quote, unquote, an American." https://bit.ly/2VnP4Ow

I can personally testify to the truth of this statement in Rush's answer, "it's one of the proudest days of their lives, to become, quote, unquote, an American."

For years, I sang my original song, "Celebrate America" https://bit.ly/2h0Swyv at monthly naturalization ceremonies in Maryland. Every ceremony had a thousand people or more; applicants, families and friends. I enjoyed watching the excitement of the audience from my seat with dignitaries on stage behind the podium.

The vibe in the air was always electric. Applicants studied, passed the test and jumped through all the loops to become Americans. They were extremely excited.

The attitude of the immigrants I saw at nationalization ceremonies were far superior to those seeking to illegally invade our country. Illegal-aliens disrespect our laws and the American people. They have no desire to embrace our culture, salute our flag or learn English while exploiting our welfare system. Democrats and RINO Republicans gift illegal-aliens $135 billion annually in give-a-ways. https://bit.ly/2Ac0Dzi The citizenship applicants I saw at naturalization ceremonies were a superior breed, with a desire to become a part of something great; lending their gifts, talents and skills to contribute to America's greatness.

I've shared before about the 90 something year old applicant in a wheelchair surrounded by his family at a naturalization ceremony. The elderly applicant wore a suit. His family were also in their Sunday best. Obviously, this was a major family event; extremely important that he become an American before he died. When time came for the frail gentleman to say his Oath of Allegiance, a family member on both sides lifted him from his wheelchair to his feet. A great grandchild held up the elderly gentleman's right hand as he pledged his oath with the rest of the applicants. Upon the applicants completing their Oath of Allegiance, the hall always exploded into enthusiastic cheers, tears and applause. At that emotional moment, my accompaniment music would start. I joyfully sang my "Celebrate America" https://bit.ly/2h0Swyv , the first song heard by the extremely excited new official U.S. citizens. It was the proudest day of their lives.

Obama did everything in his power to undermine the special-ness of being and becoming an American.

Obama undermined our heritage of self-reliance and rugged individualism. He wanted to addict as many Americans as possible to government dependency. https://politi.co/2JJ0hTA This turned my stomach folks. I wrote another song, "We Are Americans" https://bit.ly/2F473EP to remind people who we are; the dignity and pride of being an American.

Obama sent out a clarion call to foreigners to enter America illegally, bypassing legal immigration. Many in our military paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy each day. And yet, Obama ended the requirement for citizenship applicants to pledge their Oath of Allegiance. https://washex.am/2TmUAiy

Pledging an oath to defend and protect their new homeland is what sealed the deal in the hearts of the citizenship applicants at naturalization ceremonies. I saw it on their faces as tears rolled down their cheeks.

Obama thinks we are rude for believing America is exceptional. He believes American exceptionalism is no more exceptional than the exceptionalism of any other country. https://bit.ly/2R85RqF

Upon winning the presidency in 2008, Obama launched his I-apologize-for-who-we-are tour. He apologized to nearly 3 billion people across Europe, the Muslim world and the Americas. Obama said our country is flawed and asked forgiveness for our sins. https://herit.ag/2JeZp9c

For crying out loud, Obama's minions who control public schools banned the song, "God Bless the USA/Proud to be an American," claiming it could "offend other cultures." https://bit.ly/2s38lHw

Outrageously, U.S. citizen students were sent home from school for wearing garments with a U.S. flag to school on Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo. School administrators concluded wearing our flag (in our country) on a Mexican holiday was "incendiary" and insensitive to illegal-alien students. https://fxn.ws/2zBfi6O

Courageously, president Trump addressed the nation to say, "Thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we do not act right now." Trump called the invasion of our border a "humanitarian crisis." As expected, Democrats and fake news attacked Trump calling him racist. Thank God Trump remains strong, firm in placing America's best interest first. Our president needs your prayers and support folks. https://bit.ly/2FifWuO

Here's another fond memory from my days singing at naturalization ceremonies.

Every naturalization ceremony began with the singing of our National Anthem. A trio of middle school students were scheduled to sing it. When they peeped through the stage curtain to see an audience of over a thousand people, the students became terrified. Upon being introduced by the emcee, the kids marched to the center stage microphone and began singing. Suddenly, they froze and stopped singing in the middle of the song.

I quickly joined the kids at the microphone. I explained to the audience that the kids had never performed for such a large audience. But rather than run away in fear, they gave it a shot. That is how we do things here in America. The audience erupted with applause. They loved the kids. The audience, the kids and I all sang our National Anthem together. It was awesome. Immigration officials sent me a letter thanking me for turning an embarrassing moment into a moment of inspiration.

Performing my song, "Celebrate America" https://bit.ly/2h0Swyv at citizenship naturalization ceremonies further opened my eyes to how blessed I was to be born an American. Democrats have deceived far too many of my fellow blacks into believing the lie that America is a hellhole of racism where cops shoot blacks on sight and white America burns the midnight oil conceiving ways to keep blacks down. https://bit.ly/2BYgfGO The truth is America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it.

The new Democrat controlled congress is fighting Trump tooth and nail to continue Obama's policy of bypassing legal immigration. Democrats Pelosi and Schumer are hellbent on keeping our borders open to illegals, endangering Americans while throwing away the dignity and pride of becoming an American. Becoming an American truly is and should always remain extremely special.
