Don’t you just love President Obama? He’s so quick to pass judgment on Arizona Governor Jan Brewer although President Obama on Feb. 27, 2010 signed a one year extension to the Patriot Act. Remember that memorable piece of legislation that was signed into law after 9/11 by President Bush. The one that drove the left wild for the new powers that Bush would now have over all of us. The one that infringes on our civil liberties? Well it’s still with us and does even more harm then that which President Obama and the left is now condemning Gov. Jan Brewer and the state of Arizona of doing.
If the Democrats can’t or will not see their obvious hypocrisy, then I must conclude that Dr. Michael Savage diagnosis of Liberalism being a mental disorder, is 100% correct.
On this past Friday there was an article on Newsvine with the title of:
With the recent passage of the law in Arizona allowing racial profiling of Mexican looking or speaking people, should Africans,Haitians, Cubans and Puerto Ricans begin to worry about racism and bigotry of the police finding a new outlet for expression?
This was an attempt to trash the evil Republicans, for passing a law in which the state of Arizona with over 70% of the population believe to be the right thing to do. Never mind the actual lack of understanding by the author of this article, which are obvious by the statement of:
“Mexican looking or speaking people”
That in itself shows lack of understanding on his part. By assuming that they “look or speak Mexican”. The language is called Spanish, and although Spanish is spoken through out Latin America there are differences in which the language is spoken from country to country as well as to their physical appearances. In Brazil the official language is Portuguese.
should Africans,Haitians, Cubans and Puerto Ricans begin to worry about racism and bigotry of the police finding a new outlet for expression?
First this article is supposed to be about the new Arizona law, I’m sure your going to find Africans as well as Haitians living in many places in the U.S. but I’m sure they aren’t going to be mistaken for
“Mexican looking or speaking people.”
like the author claims. Cubans look completely different than Mexicans and Puerto Ricans look nothing like Mexicans. Puerto Ricans are Americans and Puerto Rico is a common wealth of the U.S. something that the author probably isn’t even aware of, based by his own statement.
This article is typical of the nonsense that only shows who the true racist are. They expose themselves with their many words as just being full of hatred toward their fellow Americans that are Conservatives or Republican. The stereotyping by the author shows what is very common of people that don’t have a clue to what they are saying or pretend to be defending. I don’t believe he was being dishonest, although his choice of words in his title allows me to believe he has never interacted with any of the people he claims to be defending in his article. Nor does he have a clue to the culture or the make up of people from those countries.
I would much rather have read and agreed with him, if the article would have been about the Patriot Act, and what it really means for all Americans. Rather than an article supposedly meant to be for the defense of a minority group who the author himself has no clue as to who they are, and then lumps various groups into one pile as to make an attempt to show how they will all suffer.
If our federal government would do their job, instead of playing lip service to the immigration problem that faces our country, then it’s possible that Arizona wouldn’t have taken the step that it believes is in the best interest of their state. If we have been at war against terrorist for the last decade, doesn’t it make sense for us to protect our borders?
Are you aware that the so-called Hispanic or Latino groups that are all lumped together for the purpose of Washington’s “politics of divisions” is nothing more than catering to special interest out for their own personal agenda. “La Raza” means the races, can you imagine if a group of white guys would call their organization by this name what our leaders in Washington would say or the Left wing media? Yet that is exactly what this group does, and where is the outrage? Another thing, issues concerning someone who might be a new naturalized citizen or a legal U.S. resident lets say from Mexico, would be quite different from someone from Argentina, Columbia, Venezuela, or Dominican Republic.
I have yet to meet someone that was born in Central or South America that identifies themselves as Hispanic or Latino. They are proud people and will identify themselves from their respected country. The word Hispanic is just another of the many constant attempts that politicians use to create divisions among citizens, nothing more or nothing less.
Wasn’t it Theodore Roosevelt who said:
There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all.
This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance.
But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English- Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian- Americans, or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality than with the other citizens of the American Republic.
The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country . The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American.
Addressing the Knights of Columbus in New York City
12 October 1915
Instead we have legislation trying to be pushed by Dem. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Lindsey Graham for a national I.d. card to prevent hiring of illegals. This seems more threatening to me than what just happened this past Friday in Arizona. It will affect all Americans and infringe on all of our rights. Yet the left always seems to make every issue about race. I’m getting tired of statements from those who claim to be our leaders that do nothing other than try to create divisions among Americans. Napolitano comparing those on the right as being possible concerns for home grown terrorism. Bill Clinton comparing those exercising their Constitutional Rights of free speech and assembly as being potential risk like Timothy McVeigh or President Obama being amused by Tea Party goers. This gets tiring and quite disheartening when you hear our leaders trying to provoke with their words those on the fringe of both the Left & the Right.
Hillary Clinton said:
“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.'”
Was that a tea party protester seeking to rile up white men and incite them to violence? No, that was Hillary Clinton in 2003. The administration she was criticizing was that of George W. Bush. All this nonsense has got to stop! A family divided will not stand neither will a nation that is divided. Instead of division why not unity for a change? Instead of legislation that is meant to protect one group, why not just enforce the laws that we already have? The truth that Theodore Roosevelt said in 1915, is also true today, with the exception that our new Americans are from Central and South America. Let us all this day choose to be Americans rather then the hyphenated which only divides.
