Lindsey Graham, Birthright Citizenship and Left Wing Hypocrites

Lindsey Graham (R-SC), known by many as Lindsey Graham-nesty shocked Conservatives and angered Liberals at the same time when he suggested he may introduce legislation to eliminate “Birthright Citizenship”, a 14th amendment right.

“I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a child here,” Graham told Greta Van Susteren. “Birthright citizenship I think is a mistake, that we should change our Constitution and say if you come here illegally and you have a child, that child’s automatically not a citizen.”

So, is Graham no longer the left’s patsy, no longer willing to “compromise” on anything the liberals demand (like Amnesty for illegal aliens), or have his Conservative genes kicked in, at least temporarily? Or did Graham simply drink after Arizona Senator John McCain and catch this disease from him?

It is hard to say.

But what is amusing is the reaction from the left. Suddenly, Graham is no longer the “golden boy” from across the aisle, but a bigoted hate-monger filled with the racist thoughts of the right.

But, has the left failed to consider that this is a European thing? As well as a good portion of the world?

Great Britain, France, Germany, and many other Countries operate under the principals of jus sanguinis:

Legal rule that a person’s citizenship is determined by that of his or her parents (by ‘blood’). This rule is followed in most countries of the world except mainly Canada and US.

Those of us in America follow jus soli or Birthright citizenship.

So, the same European Countries that bring us socialized medicine, Value Added Tax (VAT) and the over regulated Nannie state must be racists too, right?

And reading some of the comments on the Huffington Post on this story, the liberals seem to think Conservatives are inconsistent for taking issue with “baby drops” as Graham called them, a part of the 14th Amendment while waving the rest of the Constitution in liberal’s faces. Yet, somehow, the irony that the rest of the world requires a parentage link to the country escapes the liberals.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
