More Chuckles From The Liberal Media

A news flash from MSNBC on the Arizona anti-immigration law:

"Law Makes it a Crime to be Illegal Immigrant."

The Arizona Anti-Immigration Law

It’s a good law. It isn’t perfect, but then, nothing man does is. The point is, something needed to be done and the state of Arizona did it. Americans, in overwhelming numbers, support the law. Not surprisingly, the major media and “intellectuals” don’t. And we have another example of the polar divisions that have become the United States of America.

Arizona acted because the federal government—which, Constitutionally, has the responsibility to protect this country from illegal foreign invasion--wouldn’t. And the federal government wouldn’t do anything because it is, and has been for many years, controlled by liberals, who, by and large, reproach this country and blame it for all the earth’s ills. In the liberal’s fairy land existence, the United States has ruthlessly exploited the planet, plundered the rest of the world, and gotten wealthy by making other people poor. Thus, we owe mankind repayment for what we have so callously snitched from them. This means that when immigrants come into America, even illegally, we should take care of them, provide for them, educate their children, give them free health care, etc., etc., etc., because we got rich by taking all of those things away from them in the first place. How dare we try to run them off? Such is simply more evidence of the cold-hearted, selfish, capitalistic pigs who dominate this country and want to keep all of the world’s wealth for ourselves. Pro-illegal immigration is simply one more way that liberals want to “spread the wealth.” It’s welfare for the world, or for anybody who can get here, whether legally or not.

This doesn’t sell to most Americans who are tired of paying taxes to support people who are breaking our laws. That’s just common sense to anyone who has any, so we simply have one more evidence of the vapid, empty philosophy that is modern liberalism.

Just keeep in mind that, for the liberal elite, the Arizona law has nothing to do with "racial profiling" and everything to do with keeping that law (and federal laws on immigration) from being enforced.  The "sheep" that follow them--Lenin's "useful idiots--aren't wise enough to perceive that, but that's all the better for the elites. 

But, except for understanding the above about liberalism, I really wonder what the stink is. Giving the police the right to check suspicious-looking people who might be breaking our laws doesn’t seem outrageous to me. Indeed, if I were a legal immigrant—paying taxes that supported illegal immigrants—I wouldn’t mind at all if the police checked my ID; if I’m here legally, I’d have nothing to worry about. Let’s just suppose that I was living and working—legally—in the country of Ghana. The vast majority of people in that country are black, of course. And let’s further suppose that, for whatever reason, there began to be a mass immigration of white Americans into Ghana, millions of them illegally. And these white Americans took jobs from native Ghanans, soaked up tax dollars through various social services that they weren’t legally qualified for, committed numerous heinous crimes, and began to be a serious drain on the economy of that country. And let’s further suppose that Ghana decided to crack down on “illegal white immigration,” and gave their police the authority to stop any suspicious-looking white person to see if they were breaking the law by being in the country unlawfully. Well, I’m not a terribly suspicious-looking fellow, but what would I care if I was stopped and checked? I have legal papers and there is nothing they could do to me. Indeed, if I were paying taxes to Ghana that were being used to support white law-breakers, I would want Ghana to boot the parasitic, criminal, teat-suckers out of the country. Am I really a psycho for thinking that way?

Perhaps the Hispanics who are legally in the United States—and I have no problem with those who are, especially those who are trying to assimilate by learning our language and working for a living—could help the state of Arizona, and the rest of the country out, by directing authorized personnel to those Hispanics who aren’t here legally. Hey, La Raza (“The Race,” for those of you who don’t speak Spanish, but it’s not a racist organization, oh, no, of course not, only whites can be racists), if you don’t like the Arizona law, help get the illegals out of the country and there won’t be any need for the law.

But Al Gore will be right about something—anything!—before that happens.

Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats---yet they are still.....POOR.

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."--Abraham Lincoln

The Racist, Bigoted, Homophobic, Terrorist Tea Party Movement

Folks, when you can’t answer somebody’s arguments, you have two options. One, scream as loud as you can so that you can (hopefully) drown out your opponents so that nobody can hear them, or two—and most effective—attack their character. Both of these methods are as old as man, but the second one is the most commonly used. The idea is that if you can find some imperfection or character flaw in the messenger, that (somehow) frees the listener from any obligation to believe or do what the messenger is teaching. Read the New Testament and see how often the Jews attacked Jesus’ character; they certainly couldn’t defeat His arguments.

This second tactic is the one being used—with limited effect, it seems to me—against the current “tea party movement” in America. Even that paragon of moral virtue, Bill Clinton, (pardon my sarcasm) has recently spoken out, fearing that the tea party folks, or those who endorse and support them, might incite violence among the more extreme elements of that movement. There are indeed some kooks and nuts among the tea party protesters; after all, some people from California have joined in, and maybe even some Yankees. But there are kooks and nuts that grab hold of any popular idea, hoping to gain some attention for themselves. But the suggestion that the tea party people, as a whole, are racist, bigoted, homophobic, and terrorists is absurd to the nth degree. These are normal Americans who are sick and tired of what is happening in Washington, D.C. And their name is Legion.

Barack Obama, not surprisingly to anyone who knows a smattering of history and understands liberalism as a political philosophy, is, by far, the most radical president this country has ever had. And he, along with fellow radicals Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed, are determined to take this country down a road to greater government control and intervention in the lives of the American people (I will suggest, however, that Pelosi and Reed, neither of whom has indicated that they have the least bit of intelligence or common sense, might simply be what Vladimir Lenin called “useful idiots”). Vast numbers of American people still believe that this country should be what it started out to be—a nation of limited government, individual rights and responsibilities, low taxation, and conscientious, honorable, virtuous leaders. That’s the debate that is going in the United States right now—are we going to have a European-style, cradle-to-grave social system where the government controls virtually all aspects of our lives—which is what Obama wants—or are we going to stay as faithful to our roots as possible—which is what the “tea party” people (and conservatives) desire? The tea party folks are winning the debate; Obama and his policies are increasingly unpopular, and even the Democrats expect to take a shellacking in the upcoming November elections. So, since they cannot answer the arguments against an all-powerful government that they desire, the Obama administration and their lap dogs in the major media are attacking the character of the tea party dissenters—they are racist, bigoted, homophobes, and especially, the fear that they are going to encourage violence to break out among the more extreme elements of the movement. These charges are utterly ridiculous, and it simply shows the desperation Obama and his lackeys feel. It’s nice to see.

But let’s take a look at the “incite violence” argument. Is it possible that the ideals and opposition that the tea party movement stand for will encourage some to acts of aggression and destruction? It isn’t impossible; again, there are fringe element psychos among every political ideology, and the more the leftist “intelligentsia” succeeds in undermining Christian morality and the foundations of human decency in this country, the more these psychos will appear. But let’s keep in mind that, over the past century, the vast, vast majority of political violence has come from the left; there have never been greater murderers in human society than the socialistic communist and Nazi movements. The death toll in the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, North Korea, and other communist dictatorships is staggering—well over 100 million people, who were massacred, not for what they had done, but simply because of who they were and what they believed. And, of course, there were the Nazis who threw 25 or 30 million other bodies onto the pile. The left has long tried to peg Hitler and the Nazi as a “right wing” movement, but the term “Nazi” stands for “National Socialism,” and socialism has never been considered “right wing”—except by leftists who control the academia and media and don’t want their socialistic ideals tainted by Hitler and his equivalent economic views.

It is the left, folks—Obama cronies like Bill Ayers—and not grandma and grandpa in the tea party movement—that scares me. Conservative people tend to be more religious and restrained by the morality of their religion. The left has no religion but victory at any cost—and again, the 20th century is the consummate example of that. There are indeed right-wing nuts like Timothy McVeigh and they are dangerous. But they are nuts and their chances of gaining power are microscopic to less-than-none. But Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Pol Pol, Kim Il-Sung, Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh—the greatest mass murderers in human history—were all leftists, socialists, non-believers who had no moral restraints. Thankfully, those kind of men could not come to power in America—yet.

And the reason they couldn’t gain power yet in the United States is…the decent Americans like those who are involved in the tea party movement.

The left demagogues—it has, too, because it has history, logic, decency, and morality against it. When one of your leading spokesmen is Bill Clinton, you have scraped the bottom of human depravity. Adolf Hitler once said, "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."  Let’s only hope that, in America, Hitler is wrong. Otherwise, we may end up like Nazi Germany—with dead bodies piles up by the millions. And it won’t be the tea partyers doing the piling.

Little Johnny Meets Barack Obama

Obama was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the president if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy." So our illustrious president asked the classfor an example of a "tragedy."

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him,that would be a tragedy."

"No," said Obama, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand:  "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explained Obama. "That's what we would call great loss."

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Obama searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"  Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you and Mrs. Obama was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaimed Obama. "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss...and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."

Thanks, Comer...
