What can often get you in far more trouble than telling a big lie is telling a big truth. And it can really put you in hot water if it’s a big truth that threatens big power. Colonel Douglas Macgregor (ret.), a decorated Gulf War veteran–turned–consultant and commentator, is learning this the hard way.
The 68-year-old Macgregor, you see, has had the temerity to mention that Democrats are using immigration to effect demographic change that will help them win political power.
As a result, the Daily Mail attacked him today, writing that he “has been repeatedly spreading a conspiracy that Joe Biden is deliberately bringing in migrants, in a bid to change the demographic balance to help Democrats.”
My, lions, and tigers, and conspiracy theories, oh boy! Here’s a question for the Mail, a British paper: When your own Andrew Neather — a liberal ex-aide to your former liberal prime minister Tony Blair — admitted in 2009 that the previous 15 years’ massive Third World migration into the UK authored by your liberal Labour Party was designed to “rub the right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date,” was that a conspiracy, too? Just asking for a friend.
The Mail mentions in particular that in April, Macgregor “told a New York radio show that the Biden administration was attempting to flood the country with Latinos, in a bid to help their electoral chances.” Well, the Democrats would never do that just for power, right? Perish the thought!
