Okay, I’ve been listening to this Arizona law debate for a few days now, and I’ve finally had enough. Boycotts? Demonstrations? All these RAAAAACISST accusations . . . before anything has even happened? I’ve mentioned before that I am over (and I mean OVER) all this PC nonsense. And I am. So here’s the deal: Arizona is a dangerous place to be/live. It’s being overrun with gangs, drug cartels, violence, rapes, robberies, kidnappings, and murder. Before this law, the Arizona police could not deport anyone, and after this law, they cannot deport anyone. All they can do is report the illegal status to the federal authorities, who will doubtless do just what they’ve always done . . . nothing at all.
As the New York Times op-ed (yes, that NYT) explains, this law “takes a measured, reasonable step to give Arizona police officers another tool when they come into contact with illegal aliens during their normal law enforcement duties.” Got that? “Normal law enforcement” duties.” The law does not allow the police to randomly stop people and interrogate them for no reason: that is against the law now, just as it was before this law was passed. The police cannot stop anyone for no reason, that’s illegal, a violation of a citizen’s rights (and until it is established that someone is not a citizen, they are presumed to be here legally). How many cops do the lefties imagine are so racist, so boiling over with seething hatred for Latinos, that they will throw away their pensions, their careers, and their freedom in order to violate the law to “catch” illegals? My guess would be about none, though there may be . . . oh, maybe one, and he or she will pay dearly for breaking the law he or she has been sworn to uphold and enforce.
The police are being trained (which I think is a waste of money, they are already highly trained, but that has to be done to try to appease the leftie loons, I get that), and they are already aware that they cannot violate someone’s civil rights. So what, I ask, is all the outrage about? We know the answer to that one, and it’s not hard to figure out. BO and his traitorous horde want to create racial tension where there was none and foster it where it already existed for political ends. There isn’t much that a president can do that is more vile, more disgusting than ripping a country apart to pursue a political agenda. But it’s what the left has been doing for decades and what this sorry excuse for a “uniter” is doing. And he’s getting away with it. Minorities are being fed bogus information, told that conservatives (and apparently 70% of the Arizona population!) are all RAAAACISTs, and they are expected to gobble that up and fall in line behind black Americans to blindlessly (blindly + mindlessly) follow the democratic party, who, let’s face it, haven’t done a damn thing for black Americans except expand welfare rolls and demand substandard education–all to grow their voting base, those dependent on big government. It’s disgusting.
Luckily, I don’t think this plan will work in the long run, not with Latino/a immigrants. But it’s the short-run we need to be worried about–that’s all BO cares about, creating as much civil unrest as he possibly can so that he and the other two who make up his triumvirate of tyranny can stay in power.
