Thomas Aquinas, Loving One’s Neighbor, and the Human Trafficking Racket

Reading Time: 5 minutes

As anybody in Virginia or Georgia could tell you, population displacement is a powerful political weapon. It isn’t a new tactic for any tyrant.

China displaces Tibetans and Uighurs with Han Chinese. Russia displaced Kazakhs with Uzbeks to keep them both fragmented and weak. Britain displaced Irish slaves with African slaves; and DC is displacing Southerners with transplants and “immigrants” to win elections and stack cash.

Human trafficking is a cash cow, alright. Mexican drug cartels and mafiosi get rich off of tribute payments. Democrats get money from political donations by bribed constituencies. Republicans make profits from displacing native-born American labor. Imported populations make money from government programs funded by the native middle class’ tax dollars. You know the rich aren’t paying 20%.

But what should we think about how the clergy fundraise off of human trafficking?

A USCCB-affiliated organization called “Catholic Charities” is potentially the largest human trafficking facilitator in the United States. According to the USSCCB website, the USCCB alone “resettles 30% of the refugees that arrive in the US,” which in common parlance means that the USCCB facilitates the displacement of Southerners in their home states. Their domestic arm, the “Catholic Campaign for Human Development,” was founded in 1969 to work alongside the “Industrial Areas Foundation” with the help of Saul Alinsky, the mentor of the Obama/Clinton circle.

In fact, Barack Obama even said that his career started in the South Chicago Catholic parishes, politically agitating those whose livelihoods were wrecked by de-industrialization policies. He would later go on to import a new working class through DACA, while exporting American industry with his TPP, thus proving the old adage that bad leaders themselves create the problems that they often campaign on addressing.

But back to the clergy:

The Catholic clergy is complicit in the dissolution of the integrity of the United States. Just what sort of injustice is done here is attested to by two facts: first, the teachings of Saint Thomas Aquinas, and secondly, the sheer profitability and toxicity of this program of displacement.

Let’s start with Aquinas, so that we don’t get led astray by the wolfish references to a “Gospel of the Stranger” or whatever rhetorical sleight-of-hand will rationalize the destruction of the Southern States this week. We’ll start at the beginning, with the sound Christian principles of social organization, and then see how those things bleed outward into the issue of “refugee resettlement,” the most common euphemism for human trafficking and population displacement.

“God holds first place, for He is supremely excellent, and is for us the first principle of being and government. In the second place, the principles of our being and government are our parents and our country, that have given us birth and nourishment. Consequently, man is a debtor chiefly to his parents and his country, after God. Wherefore just as it belongs to religion to give worship to God, so does it belong to piety, in the second place, to give worship to one’s parents and one’s country [one’s people]. The worship due to our parents includes the worship given to all our kindred, since our kinfolk are those who descend from the same parents.” (Summa Theologica, Vol. 3, P. 2, Section 2)

Lest we fall prey to globalist word-twisting on the issue of “same parents” or “kinfolk,” often reduced to Adam and Eve, Aquinas corrects:

“The friendship of kindred is more stable, since it is more natural, and preponderates over others in matters touching nature; consequently we are more beholden to them in the providing of necessities.” (Summa Theologica, Q. 26; Secunda Secundae)

And further, all from the same section:

“Some neighbors are connected with us by their natural origin, a connection which cannot be severed, since that origin makes them what they are.”

“We ought out of charity to love those who are more closely united to us more, both because our love for them is more intense, and because there are more reasons for loving them. Now intensity of love arises from the union of lover and beloved: and therefore we should measure the love of different persons according to the different kinds of union, so that a man is more loved in matters touching to that particular union in respect of which he is loved. And again, comparing love to love we should compare one union with another. Accordingly we must say that friendship among blood relations is based upon their connection by natural origin, the friendship of fellow-citizens on their civic fellowship, and the friendship of those who are fighting side by side on the comradeship of battle. Wherefore in matters pertaining to nature we should love our kindred most, in matters concerning relations between citizens, we should prefer our fellow citizens, and on the battlefield our fellow-soldiers.”

Is Saint Thomas Aquinas a “racist” yet?

In light of the above principles of wholesome social relations, Aquinas gives lie to the false economics of the displacement lobby:

“If the citizens themselves devote their lives to matters of trade, the way will be open to many vices… It is better, therefore, that the supplies of food be furnished to the city from its own fields than that it be wholly dependent on trade…The pursuit of trade is, also, entirely opposed to military activity. For tradesmen, whilst they seek their leisure, do not hard work, and whilst they enjoy all pleasures, grow soft in spirit and their bodies are weakened and rendered unsuited to military labors…Consequently, the perfect city will make a moderate use of merchants.” (On the Governance of Rulers)

This is a good summation of why Americans should be doing working-class labor instead of importing it; see how over 60% of Americans are overweight or obese. No nation has a right to descend into sloth or gluttony just because it is profitable, or just because cheaper labor is available.

The Angelic Doctor continues:

“A city which must engage in much trade in order to supply its needs also has to put up with the continuous presence of foreigners. But association with foreigners, according to Aristotle’s Politics, is harmful to civic customs. For it is inevitable that strangers, brought up under other laws and customs, will in many cases act as citizens are not wont to act and thus, since the citizens are drawn by their example to act likewise, their own civic life is upset.” (De Regno, Chapter 3, 138)

All of those quotes from the Summa can be referenced at this link.

Does the above sound like an endorsement of human trafficking for the sake of politically displacing the native peoples of the numerous United States and raking in fat stacks of cash, to you? Or does it sound like a solid, Christian description of what social relations should look like, by which the present situation stands indicted?

Now get this, from Breitbart:

“Border crossers are flying on commercial flights for free into the United States, with the help of Catholic Charities, after first sheltering at paid-for hotel rooms along the U.S.-Mexico border, a new report details.

A report by the Daily Mail reveals the extent to which non-governmental organizations (NGOs)- such as Catholic Charities of San Diego, California; the Shapiro Foundation, and the Tripadvisor Foundation- are facilitating the release of border crossers into the U.S. interior, thanks to President Joe Biden’s administration and often funded by American taxpayers.

In southern California, for instance, Biden officials and the state have worked out an operation that places border crossers into free hotel rooms at $71 to $90 a night. A similar scheme in Arizona and Texas- costing $86 million in total- is costing taxpayers about $72,000 per border crosser.

The southern California operation first provides the free hotel rooms to border crossers who stay for sometimes less than 48 hours before Catholic Charities puts them on commercial flights, for free, into the U.S. interior. The migrants, as the Daily Mail reports, are often headed to Los Angeles, California; New York City, New York; and Boston, Massachusetts.

Every day, according to Catholic Charities, border crossers are taken on buses to Yuma, Arizona, and San Diego airports.” (Here is the entire piece.)

Qui bono?

Well, according to Crisis Magazine, the USCCB actually received $2 billion in subsidies from Caesar for their work in displacing the American people out of their own homeland. No doubt the takeover of Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, are directly tied to this highly profitable and treasonous pact with DC. The whole article is highly informative, and I recommend you read it in full. You can find it here.

The next thing I recommend is to ask the intercession of Saint Joan of Arc, defender of the nations against foreign invasion, so that both those who invade the country and work injustice, and those who unlock the gates in complicity with their criminality, are thwarted in their efforts by God’s good graces.

Saint Joan of Arc, ora pro nobis!
