Saturday

AZ Law awakens "sleeping giant". Obamacare didn't?

The liberal bias of the main stream media, while never in doubt, has reached an all time low. Reporting on the "outrage" against the newly passed Arizona immigration law seems to have far surpassed reporting on the outrage against Obamacare.Go figure.

The media, when they noticed at all, portrayed Tea Party members as racists and homophobes. While reporting on groups who are protesting Arizona's law seem to have a much more favorable flavor.

I suppose that in order to garner favor with the leftist media all one has to do is blindly support Obama's agenda while simultaneously bashing anyone who tries to enforce this nation's laws.

Below are excerpts from an MSNBC Report on the anti-American rallies planned for today (On a completely unrelated note an Arizona Deputy was recently shot by a group of illegal immigrant drug runners 17 caught in search for Ariz. deputy's attackers):

CHICAGO - Activists said outrage over Arizona's controversial immigration law "awakened a sleeping giant" Saturday as rallies demanding federal immigration reform kicked off in cities across the country.


More than 70 protests were planned by immigration rights activists in major cities, including in Phoenix, where the governor signed the toughest immigration law in the nation eight days ago.


In New York, labor organizer John Delgado said anger over the law — which requires local law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they're in the country illegally — drew more than 5,000 people to a rally at Manhattan's Foley Square.
It is amazing that the media perpetuate the fallacy that this law is designed to promote racial profiling and the like. The law is clear in that a law enforcement officer must have a lawful reason to even initiate contact and then reasonable suspicion thereafter to question a subject about his immigration status. The media and liberal politicians have intentionally and maliciously misrepresented this law.



In a sea of American flags and banners painted with "We Are All Arizona" and "Overturn Arizona Apartheid," tens of thousands of marchers, dressed in white, turned out in downtown Los Angeles


Singer Gloria Estefan kicked off the massive downtown march. Estefan spoke in Spanish and English atop a flatbed truck, proclaiming the United States is a nation of immigrants. She said immigrants are good, hardworking people, not criminals.

Except for the immigrants who are criminals; the illegal ones. It may not be politically correct to point this out but they have broken the laws of this nation by entering this country illegally. That is what makes one a criminal; breaking laws. 



The movement fractured and annual May 1 rally attendance dropped sharply as attempts to reform federal immigration policy fizzled. In 2006, nearly half a million people took to Chicago's streets. Last year, fewer than 15,000 participated in the rallies, held May 1 because it's a traditional day of protest and International Workers Day.

Where was this detailed reporting on turn out when the Tea Party protests were in full swing? The media is showing its bias here. 


"What happened in Arizona proves that racism and anti-immigrant hysteria across the country still exists. We need to continue to fight," said Lee Siu Hin, a coordinator with the Washington, D.C.-based National Immigrant Solidarity Network.

This is a fallacious argument. It presupposes that if a person supports laws that prohibit illegal immigration they are against legal immigration. That's one hell of a leap of logic. It's like arguing that if I oppose a speed limit of 45 mph on interstates I must want people to die in car crashes. There is a place between the to extremes. I can advocate responsible immigration laws without being a racist xenophobe. 




"The horrendous violence we see by narco-terrorists is uncontrolled, and our own federal government refuses to fulfill its responsibility to secure our border," Brewer said in a statement.
This is the real problem. Our leaders on a federal level have failed to act. They know the problem exists but refuse to address it. This leaves states like Arizona with two choices: 1. allow there citizens to be victimized or 2. act on their own to solve the problem. Arizona has acted in the best interest of citizens of that state. For that they are being vilified by the very federal leaders who have been derelict in their duties.


Critics of the law say it's unconstitutional and encourages racial profiling and discrimination against immigrants or anyone thought to be an immigrant. But they say that without federal legislation to address the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S., other states may follow Arizona's lead.

What they mean here is "Amnesty". 

"If Republicans and Democrats do not take care of this albatross around our necks, this will in fact be the undoing of many, many years of civil rights struggle in this country," said Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a spokesman for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, where organizers expect 100,000 to march downtown Saturday.
I wonder if Cabrera would be so supportive of a federal initiative that mirrored Arizona's? Likely not. The truth is there are giants that have been kicked from there slumber in this country. The showdown is coming and I hope for the sake of this nation reason prevails.

  1. Keep speaking the truth before diversity and Orwellian hate crime legislation destroys us all. This is all part of a program of white extinction. Whites will constitute 10% of the world's population by 2060, and that's a liberal estimate.

  2. I saw Jay Leno at Correspondent Dinner his best line was; “That was my favorite story (this year) Republicans and a Lesbian bondage club. It’s ironic, Republicans don’t want lesbian getting married but they do like watching them “tie the knot”. So I thought that was interesting.”

    You can say the same about Tea Party (they are haters not debaters or as others have dubbed them screamers not dreamers), they say they respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors (no one voted for this crazy) who only care about getting reelected on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster, just like Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago, keep passing them Arizona and the rest of us will continue to challenged them in a court of law and you will fail again (and yes we will Boycott Arizona). Their phony patriotism is sickening; they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that.
