Paul Campos: "Well-Paid Parasite Who Infests Our Fabulously Wealthy Nation"

Paul Campos is a moonbat law professor at CU-Boulder who calls English-speaking Americans "parasites".

Using the logic of his article on illegal immigration and pressing "1" for English, Campos himself must be one of those "well-paid parasites":
Yet the most significant fact to keep in mind about people who speak Spanish in the United States is this: such people are invariably performing useful labor. In fact, it isn't too much of an exaggeration to say that the odds a person does the kind of work that simply has to get done in order to keep civilization afloat go up in direct proportion to the probability that this person speaks Spanish.

Those among us who build the buildings, and cook the food, and clean the bathrooms, and trim the trees, and care for the children - in short, the people who, in Orwell's phrase, "make the wheels go round" - are increasingly the people who press "2" in order to hear their options in Spanish.

Meanwhile, the immense mass of well-paid parasites who infest our fabulously wealthy nation - the financial analysts, the political consultants, the managers of human resources, the vice presidents for West Coast promotion, the producers of television commercials designed to increase the consumption of certain breakfast cereals, and, needless to say, the syndicated newspaper columnists - will continue to become annoyed at the need to press "1."
Yes, if it wasn't for those financial analysts, HR managers, and others who grease the wheels of the economic engine that makes this country the wealthiest on the planet, there would be no need for an "immense mass of well-paid parasites who infest our fabulously wealthy nation" including lawyers, law professors, and academics in general.

In poor and undemocratic societies there is little need for such a large class of intelligent, educated individuals whose creativity is precisely the cause--not the parasite of--the fabulous wealth present in the country. If the United States were a poorer society there would be no need for mass immigration of a poor and uneducated underclass to "do the work Americans won't do". People would emigrate from these lands, presumably to countries with better economies. Campos' disparaging of the economic creators of the wealth this country uses to employ expendable legal academics such as himself confirms not only his detachment from reality, but his contempt for the system he both praises and condemns in the space of a few words.
