“Sovereign is he who decides the exception,” wrote political theorist Carl Schmitt. These days, there are many “exceptions” to the law. Sam Francis argued that “anarcho-tyranny” was the necessary result of multiculturalism: “We refuse to control real criminals (that’s the anarchy),” he wrote, “so we control the innocent (that’s the tyranny).”
There is more “anarchy” and “tyranny” every day.
Twenty to 30 million illegal immigrants are in the country. They aren’t “in the shadows;” they protest in public and go on television, even on taxpayer-subsidized networks. To them, the law is irrelevant.
Several cities have declared themselves “sanctuaries” for illegals. Local police ignore “detainer” orders by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and release criminal illegals who go on to commit more crimes. California passed a law making the entire state a “sanctuary” and forbidding local cooperation with immigration authorities. “Sanctuaries” flout federal law.
