Arizona: It’s the Left’s latest excuse

The American Left has been in the position it likes best the last week and a half: “Outraged,” marching in the streets, preening itself about its “moral superiority,” and, oh, yes, setting fires and smashing windows and anything else it can find that is breakable while it is showing us how “humanitarian” and “peace-loving” it is.

The Left — not to be confused with the Democratic Party (I’m a Democrat myself, and I’m typical of many moderate-to-conservative Democrats who don’t agree with the Left) — claims to be “outraged” and “dismayed” at Arizona’s passing of the anti-illegal immigrant law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer two weeks ago. But really, deep down, the Hispanics who claim to feel that they’re all being targeted by this, and the White Americans who love to march on behalf of somebody else’s alleged plight, but never that of their own race — they’re all delighted. To them, this is the way God intends the world to be: Leftists marching like so many self-righteous Marxist workers (never mind that many of them are pampered college students), chanting feel-good Leftie rhetoric about the conservatives being “Fascists” and “Nazis” and “racists,” condemning alleged “racial profiling” …

The Tea Party Movement of the last year has made the Left extremely uncomfortable. “Middle-class White people actually gathering to protest, and speak their minds, in large groups? How dare they! Conservatives are supposed to all be gray-haired, paunchy White guys, sitting in boardrooms in their expensive suits and grumbling about what’s the world coming to. They’re not supposed to be yelling out in the streets, waving signs, suggesting that they’re patriotic Americans and not selfish, racist Nazis!” Well, you get the idea. To the Left, marching, yelling and protesting is the exclusive prerogative of the Left, the “moral” side of the political equation, the side that wants to “organize and smash the state.” Except that, hey, look, the state is now being run by the most left-leaning president in our history!

But never mind such inconsistencies of reasoning. The Left’s mind is made up; keep the facts to yourself, you racist Nazis!

Like the Left’s allegation that the Arizona law will result in “racial profiling.” That’s the “R.P.-word” now, you know, like “nigger” is the “N-word.” An accusation of “racial profiling” is supposed to produce a stunned silence on the part of the side accused of it, just like being accused of “racism” usually does in our White-guilt ridden society.

Let’s look at this “racial profiling” phrase that’s been added to the list of Leftist hate words. Just what is it? If a zebra wearing a Santa Claus outfit robs a bank, and reliable witnesses identify the robber in that way, should the police look also for alligators wearing green pajamas, just to be “fair” about it? If most robberies of taxi drivers in New York City are proven to be committed by black men aged 17 to 35 or 40, should the police be suspicious of Swedish grandmothers as potential, dangerous thieves? Should the taxi drivers (many of them black themselves) who refuse to pick up black men who appear to be in that age group, because the drivers assume they are the group most likely to rob them, be condemned as “racists” practicing “racial profiling”?

It applies to things besides crime, too. When 80 percent of all the starting players in the National Basketball Association are black, are we to assume that White players just aren’t very good? Or that coaches and scouts are jumping to conclusions that may not be warranted? Or are afraid they may be called “racist” if they play “too many” White athletes?

What about “affirmative action”? When colleges set aside a given percentage of the classroom slots in freshman classes for black or Hispanic students who have scored lower on their SATs than White students, is that not “racial profiling” to supposedly benefit minorities, but which also discriminates against Whites? Same thing with hiring by employers, who often must meet federal racial quotas. If some minority group members have to be hired to fill a quota, they may well have qualifications inferior to those of comparable Whites. Why isn’t that called “racial profiling”? Depends on whose ox is being gored, doesn’t it?

But the Left isn’t concerned about such logical examinations of its cherished beliefs. The Left loves nothing better than marching, shouting, and moralizing about how morally bankrupt somebody else is. Arizona has given it its latest excuse to do so, and to take the spotlight away — for a while, anyhow — from those nasty old racist White people in the Tea Party Movement.

    The really remarkable thing about today’s leftists is that since they have seen so many of their ideals and projects accomplished, they feel they can do no wrong. Debating a true leftist is fruitless since they are convinced to the core that they are right. For them a debate is just an opportunity to walk all over the rules and go for the throat. It’s a very narrow mindset that doesn’t take much real intelligence to propagate. And that is what I find so fascinating. Leftists don’t want enlightened thinkers in their ranks at all. They want dumbed-down public tit latchers who can be incited to vote or riot with only the flimsiest of arguments. Affirmative action doesn’t get anyone through college, it only gets them to the gate while delaying those who deserve it. The ones who end up making it through to the Junior or Senior college level aren’t the ones the leftists are trying to reach (unless they happen to be well connected in some way). For the most part the leftists only want the whiners and malcontents who dropped out of high school, got a GED then dropped out of college. All because “The Man” (white conservatives) built roadblocks into the “system” to keep the brothers down. You can’t win an argument with the leader of an army of marching morons. You have to let them destroy themselves. And they will. Leftists only present a united front for elections and riots. After those events they go back to being feudal lords presiding over kingdoms of losers.

    Well said, Grob Hahn. Don’t think I could add a thing.

    Some interesting TV advertisements concerning Arizona and the administrations refusal to enforce (actually reduce) illegal immigration enforcement.

    Obama likes to make a joke of the illegal immigration situation:

    When you comment on the NBA and say that 80% of the players are black…etc you seem to be using your own argument against yourself. I assume that racists tend to have that problem though.
    You can actually feel your leaning towards a biased posistion for the white male dominated society on many of your “rants”. Enjoy your thoughts of the good “old days” as you ride on the bus.

      Ah, yes, Mr. Hampton, the snooty white liberal elitist, condescendingly lectures the nasty old White reactionary about his “racism.” Seems to me I’ve heard that song before. I thought I recognized your name. Snooze on, Mr. Hampton, as your race edges steadily closer to extinction. You were too busy glorying in our “diversity” to even see it coming.

        I am not white or elitist…liberal??? compared to the “people” that post here MOST DEFINETLY!
        Don’t worry though I have a feeling your idea of the supreme race will always exist…much like a cockroach 😉

        Always remember I am WIDE awake! You tend to doze of riding the bus I have noticed.

    Mr. Hampton, I doze on the bus because my heart is pure and my conscience is clear. Why are you always WIDE AWAKE?!

    I would urge EVERYONE to get busy and get involved. Write, fax, telephone and e-mail your Congressional representatives (BOTH senators and all Congressmen(women) for your state. Let them hear YOUR OPINION on illegal immigration, the cost and crime associated with illegal immigration.

    is a great webside with lots of links including Congress and the White House. Also links to many anti-illegal immigration activist groups. Check it out friends.

    I’m late on this, but Henry Horner has a great point. For the ones that bleed more for (any) illegal than the American citizen I have a question. If and when it comes the time you may have to purchase health insurance or be fined by the I.R.S. will you still think it is fair for the masses of illegal’s to get free healthcare(births, operations, care for illnesses} etc………..? Not counting any non-contributions to our tax system. Sound fair to you Illegal sympathizer’s?

    Indiana now successfully has an anti illegal immigrant law. SB-590 was passed by the Indiana House and Senate and if I’m not mistaken was signed into law by Gov. Mitch Daniels yesterday.

    I believe this is the final and passed revised version. This will go into effect July 1, 2011.

    Excellent! There’s some serious penalties for those that employ, transport or otherwise support and promote illegals coming to Indiana. There’s a heck of a lot of tax penalties for employers of illegals. The key for the employers is using E-Verify to validate the status of an employee. There’s a lot to digest in the link I posted, only comprehend about half of it so far and I’m loving it!
