Leaders Who Despise Their Own People
Not since President James Buchanan left America open to secession and civil war in the late 1850s has America suffered a leader so determined to undermine our fundamental interests.(HT: David “Spengler” Goldman)
It was a gala affair on the White House Lawn. The POTUS and The President of Mexico stood behind the podium and delivered addresses of mutual friendship and good will. It seems the two men and their governing apparatuses had something in common to strengthen their bond. They each detested the fact that Arizona had passed legislation requiring that their state law enforcement officials assist in enforcing federal statutes on illegal immigration.
President Obama offered his own assessment. He promised the President of Mexico that Arizona would be in his administration’s cross-hairs. Barack Obama addresses Arizona in the manner most US Presidents reserve for North Korea below.
And I want everyone, American and Mexican, to know my administration is taking a very close look at the Arizona law. We’re examining any implications, especially for civil rights. Because in the United States of America, no law-abiding person — be they an American citizen, a legal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico — should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like.(HT: National Review)
President Calderon, a foreign leader welcomed to our soil for a diplomatic visit, appears to have left any vestige of diplomatic courtesy back home in Ciudad de Mexico. He tells the US how it should administer its laws under its Constitution below.
But we will retain our firm rejection to criminalize migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation will be treated as criminals. And we oppose firmly the S.B. 1070 Arizona law given its principles that are partial and discriminatory.
Had the Democrats been content to thank him for his advice and limousine his butt out of town, President Calderon’s self-serving hypocrisy could be tolerated without a single rousing chorus about the Halls of Montezuma. But Democrats always economize when given the opportunity to get in a cheap shot. The Democratic members of The House of Representatives applauded. They applauded a foreign leader, coming on to our nation’s soil, and accusing the government of one of our states of racism.
This was vile. This was despicable. Perhaps the Arizona State legislature looked to Mexico for inspiration when writing their anti-immigration laws. The AP describes the primitive, bigoted, xenophobic natavism rampant in Mexican immigration laws below.
At present, Article 67 of Mexico’s Population Law says, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal … are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.” (HT: The Associated Press).
So, if a woman gets raped and forced into prostitution in Mexico, the authorities will worry; once she produces her papers. Rupert Knox, an Amnesty International researcher who specializes in Mexico describes how much fun it is to migrate through Mexico.
“Migrants in Mexico are facing a major human rights crisis leaving them with virtually no access to justice, fearing reprisals and deportation if they complain of abuses,” Knox said. Central American migrants are frequently pulled off trains, kidnapped en masse, held at gang hideouts and forced to call relatives in the U.S. to pay off the kidnappers. Such kidnappings affect thousands of migrants each year in Mexico, the report says. Many are beaten, raped or killed in the process.
With all that in mind, I’m relieved to hear that Presidente Calderon is focusing like a laser beam on all those meth-lab sick puppies out in Arizona. So were the Democrats in The House of Representatives. They cheered for President Calderon’s disgusting and disingenuous hypocrisy. Andrew McCarthy explains why this was a national catastrophe.
But to be a nation, a People, it has to agree that it has a shared destiny: that its unique culture, core principles, and independence are worth preserving, protecting, and defending. I didn’t see a shared destiny during those moments in the People’s House Thursday. I saw Democrats cheering for Mexico’s attack on Arizona. It was a catastrophe.(HT: National Review).
Yes, a foreign leader came into our borders, stood right next to our President and gratuitously and hypocritically insulted one of our fifty states. The Democrats enjoyed it. The classless, evil, America-hating Democrats stood there and enjoyed it. Democrats cheer whenever America is insulted. Democrats want the denigration of America.
Somewhere beneath the Parker Griffithesque feel-good rhetoric the typical Democrat has a craven weasel-soul. This craven weasel-soul hates America. President Calderon did our nation a favor. His poisonous lying speech coaxed these roaches into the harsh, unforgiving sunlight.
The Democrats have been revealed for exactly the hate-America-first scum they truly are. This needs to be run in campaign adds in every state, every city, in every county across America. The People need to now which of our two parties stands up and celebrates the shaming of an America state.
