John McCain Afraid That Enforcing the Law Could lead to Riots!
By: John Lillpop
Snake-oil politicians like GW Bush and John McCain usually try to sell their amnesty poison by convincing the American people that illegal aliens are good hearted, hard working children of God, rather than the dangerous criminals that they really are.
Calling invaders “children of God” is a particularly offensive assault on the sensibilities of Americans who cherish our national sovereignty, culture and language, and is the latest in John McCain’s startling surrender to illogical and fuzzy thinking.
What makes McCain’s latest propaganda so bizarre is that just one year ago he
was telling the American people that enforcing the law against illegal aliens could lead to riots.
Riots from children of God? Can you imagine good hearted, hard working peasants resorting to violence.
McCain apparently decided in June of 2007 that fear mongering was essential in trying to sell his amnesty stupidity.
Thus, McCain rolled out his fear-based defense of amnesty on the campaign trail in Le Mars, Iowa. Responding to a question about deportation of illegal aliens, McCain delivered the following dilly:
“In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,” McCain said. “They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.”
With all due respect to the senator, warning American citizens that government cannot enforce the law because it would lead to rioting is b fear mongering at it’s lowest and most despicable.
It is also irresponsible and reckless, because it conveys a very dangerous message, which is:
“America is governed by the rule of law, except when the threat of anarchy and violence is too great. In which case, congress and the president will simply change the law to legalize what had been illegal, thereby pacifying those guilty of behavior once considered unlawful.”
And we conservatives honestly believe that liberal Democrats are the anti-rule of-law bad actors?
Apart from the fact that John McCain’s latest drivel borders on insanity, it also illogical and may unintentionally make the case against his amnesty scheme.
For instance, how would illegal aliens react to a requirement that heads of households must return to Mexico for a brief period in order to qualify?
How about those $5,000 fines and fees, not an insignificant amount for a low-income peasant family?
And what self-respecting, macho Latino would take kindly to the notion that his or her future was dependent upon learning English and proving it?
Now that a sitting U.S. senator and leading candidate for the presidency has warned that mob rule, rather rule of law, may be the foundation for future government immigration policy and action, will the illegal alien community decide to play the R card (riot!) in order to get its way?
Finally, McCain and others intent on legalizing 38 million illegal aliens argue that amnesty makes sense because Latino aliens share values common to the majority of Americans.
That may be so, but I’ll be damned if I can recall a single instance when millions of American citizens resorted to rioting because of displeasure with legitimate laws and enforcement.
But perhaps a little fear mongering from citizens is what is needed to convince the likes of John McCain, Ted Kennedy, and George Bush to abandon their amnesty nonsense?
