Up Yours, Junior

It’s one thing to be completely politically tone-deaf. It’s one thing to bend over for the likes of Ted Kennedy and the rest of the Donks in congress. It’s one thing to be a complete failure in nearly every facet of your presidency. It’s something completely different – even for you – to attack those who oppose your Amnesty™ bill, as racists.

WASHINGTON – President Bush wants Congress to approve an immigration compromise bill that will be supported mainly by Democrats.

He’s no longer worried about getting re-elected, so in his pushing for the bill’s passage, Bush has now told millions of voters to get lost. These are the people who have been his most loyal supporters on virtually every other issue.

Yet Bush now condemns them as unwilling to do “what’s right for America” and accuses their allies in Congress of using “empty rhetoric” to misrepresent the bill as a form of amnesty for illegal aliens. Bush appealed for “a chance to fix the problems in a comprehensive way that enforces our border and treats people with decency and respect.”

Treats people with decency and respect? You must mean like how those illegals treat our Constitution with decency and respect by wiping their collective ass with it? Just do us all a favor and don’t bother mentioning the “rule of law” ever again. You’re just fine with people breaking the law as long as they speak Spanish and will pick lettuce for a quarter an hour.

To hell with those who actually followed the rules, came here and worked hard to become American citizens, right, Junior? You know, the ones who actually appreciate freedom and want to assimilate instead of reclaim the Southwest?

As waffle-haired crooner Cyndi Lauper once said, “we see your true colors shinin’ through.” And they look a lot like that dark brown color that you get when you mix all the colors in your paint collection together. Not only that, but the newly-created clump of paint smells a lot like burrito-laden fecal matter.

I guess I just don’t like those funny-talking brown people because I didn’t grow up in Texas like you, boss.

“When you grow up in Texas like I did, you recognize the decency and humanity of Hispanics. And the truth of the matter is, a lot of this immigration debate is driven as a result of Latinos being in our country,” he said. “I have seen firsthand the beautiful stories of people being able to take advantage of opportunity and make solid contributions to our society.”

He said Americans had nothing to fear from large-scale immigration from Latin America.

“There is an element of our society that is worried about two Americas,” he said. “Our ability to welcome newcomers and the system’s capacity to assimilate them has been one of the great powerful traditions of America. It works, and it will work this time. People shouldn’t fear our capacity to uphold our motto: E Pluribus Unum.”

Or maybe it’s that I’m a Nazi.

Some people just don’t like Mexicans — or anyone else from south of the border. They think Latinos are freeloaders and welfare cheats who are too lazy to learn English. They think Latinos have too many babies, and that Latino kids will dumb down our schools. They think Latinos are dirty, diseased, indolent and more prone to criminal behavior. They think Latinos are just too different from us ever to become real Americans.

Stripped bare, this is what the current debate on immigration reform is all about. Fear of “the other” — of those who look or sound different, who come from poor countries with unfamiliar customs — has been at the heart of every immigration debate this country has ever had, from the infamous Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 to the floor of the U.S. Senate this week.

What is said today of the Mexicans, Guatemalans, Salvadorans and others was once said of Germans, Swedes, the Irish, Italians, Poles, Jews and others. The only difference is that in the past, the xenophobes could speak freely, unconstrained by a veneer of political correctness. Today, they speak more cautiously, so they talk about the rule of law, national security, amnesty, whatever else they think might make their arguments less racially charged.

Okay, Linda. We’re all racists, we’re all nazis, we get it. This is the type of vacuous argument we expect from the left, not our own party. Which is why you and Junior have driven so many of us out of the GOP. Self-righteous assholes is what you two are. Leave the sanctimony to the left – they do it so much better.

It’s shit like this that makes it very difficult to voice any support at all for you, Junior. Those of us who support the War on Terror have a difficult time defending you when you insist on keeping our Southern border open for cheap labor and terrorists alike.

Then again, sorry to bother you, President Junior, I can see you’re very busy doing your buddy Al’s work for him. I suppose as a One-World-Government type, it would make sense that you should focus on something other than our borders, our security and our culture.

UPDATE: GOP donations way down. Instead of changing course, the RNC fires their telephone solicitors. Ha! They’re just hell-bent on killing the party.

  1. Easy on the taco sauce Preston. He’s laying cover for the ’08 candidates. This shit will never pass, and he knows it. He’s taking one for the team. Wouldn’t you love to run against a Dem on record as supporting amnesty?

  2. Damn Preston…I wish I had your gift for snark…

    Maybe I’ll find a way to develop that.

    Anyway, can I take that whip from you for a sec? You need the rest…

    Honestly…I LOVE the Mexican people. I have been on mission trips to Mexico several times and I can tell you that almost everyone I met on those trips was generous, appreciative and warm.

    Having said that, listen up Jr. Don’t give me that crap about treating people with “decency and respect” when we send a soccer team down to Mexico and they chant “Osama, Osama” and throw urine on our players.

    URINE.

    I am too tired to link…go over to Michelle Malkin’s site…she has plenty of documentation on it.

    Or how they boo our entrant in the Miss Universe pagaent. Most of those pathetic boobs would not have been able to afford the ticket to get into the pagaent in the first place if not for the money sent there from the US.

    Hey Mexico…want to come here and work? Fine, I have NO problem with that. I understand what a craphole your country is.

    Just pay taxes, get car and health insurance, LEARN ENGLISH…you know, do the things that LEGAL immigrants have to do in order to be here. And leave your thugs and drunk drivers on YOUR side of the border.

    Preston, in your semi-controlled rage, I can’t believe you missed commenting on this:

    “There is an element of our society that is worried about two Americas,”

    WTF, Georgie? You’re stealing John Edwards’ talking points? Well Jr., you will really WILL have two Americas if half of the country can’t habla English.

    But this part I love:

    “…the system’s capacity to assimilate them has been one of the great powerful traditions of America.”

    Yes George…that might actually work…except you have it BACKWARDS. We shouldn’t assimilate them and their culture…they need to assimalate into OUR culture. Speak English. Pay Taxes. Become Americans. Or go back. That’s what previous immigrant populations did in order to stay here.

    OK, how long until Shauna Braindead makes her appearance over here to defend her comrades?

  3. Hey…while the whip is still in my hands, I got something else.

    BUILD THE FREAKIN’ FENCE!

    Do that FIRST before you do anything else.

    It’s like having a leaky toilet and having it spew all over the house…then taking that all of that and using it to fertilize your lawn.

    Yeah…you’ve ASSIMILATED that…but meanwhile gallons and gallons more keep coming up your crapper.

    How much sewage can you assimilate before you have too much?

    Stop the leak…stop the problem.

    OK, who wants the whip next? Cranky? Smantix?

  4. Sorry Casca, I don’t buy that shit. I’m tired of taking one in the ass just because some people think this is just political strategery for 2008. In addition, I don’t believe that’s what’s going on. And even if it was, I’m sick of politicians playing games with the border – wrecking our social infrastructure and putting my family in jeopardy. Fuck a bunch of that.

  5. I’m still thinking over the various immigration issues–thinking while raising three kids, including one with autism, so not a whole lot of high-level thought going on–but when I go to Wal-Mart to buy some shampoo and I see bottles labeled completely in Spanish sitting next to identical bottles labeled in English I wonder how far we’re going to lean over to accommodate our Latino immigrant population. Everyone else in history has had to learn the language of the country they live in! I’m in Southern California, by the way. Any of you have product labels completely printed in Spanish in your Wal-Marts?

  6. Si Joules!

    BTW, if Preston is this fired up over this issue living in Tennessee, what kind of eruption could we have expected if he was a SoCal like us?

    Heck, there are parts of Santa Ana where entire strip malls have signs in Espanol only. The same with San Ysidro (though since that is right on the border, I guess I could expect that).

  7. Preston might have an ulcer if he lived in SoCal. Doesn’t Roger Hedgecock always warn his listeners to chug the pink liquid?

  9. Of course he’s for amnesty, who else is going to mow his lawn for $5. He doesn’t have to live with them, he doesn’t have to drive through congested traffic because day laborers are trying to find a job on the side of the road, he doesn’t have to worry about an “undocumented” child molester living next door to him.

    I always thought Bush was a pussy for not enacting any sanctions against Saudi Arabia after 9/11, you know the main contributors but now I think he must be working for the Saudi Kingdom to destroy our country. Along with Hillary of course and don’t forget Karl Rove.

  10. It is, after all, the horse he rode in on. The GOP had better never call my house again. We do have a few Republicans and Democrats at the federal and state level who have a comprehensive, pardon the word, grasp of this insane immigration situation and are trying to enact sane legislation. They have resisted the tune of the pipers leading us off a cliff.

    The American people are still not as informed as they should be on this issue. That is our major problem. Ignorance.

  11. Well, at least y’all know I didn’t vote for Bush!

    Question: When illegal immigration is discussed, why is it almost always about Mexicans? There are over 100 thousand Irish illegals in Boston, alone. There are a growing number of Kurdish illegals right here in Nashville. Serbs, Asians, on and on…

    I understand that the Mexicans are the majority of the illegals, but if it’s really an issue of securing our borders from illegals, then why does everyone focus on brown people from south of the border? I never hear very much about the Canadian border where many illegal cross who just aren’t Mexican.

  12. Sharon, the GOP wants the unskilled cheap labor. This is why they won’t build the fence. They mask it by claiming that it’s some type of political angle because the Mexicans are all “conservative” and will somehow vote GOP when we know that’s not true. The GOP has no interest in bringing in immigrants with actual skills & education – and those who have such things usually go through legal channels. I say close all the damn borders and get a handle on things and then work on a new system of allowing controlled legal immigration. From melting pot to chamber pot, thanks to both parties.

    But you go on about how it’s all about brown people. I’m sure that helps ease your white guilt.

  13. Sharon, when I was in Georgia, a couple of people who joined our immigration control coalition proceeded to tell me they were former illegal aliens from Canada who gained legal status in the 1986 amnesty. Amnesty happens every day. There are so many ways for illegal aliens to slip into legal status, particularly with the help of employers and immigration lawyers. That’s why our country is such a draw for these lawbreakers. They know if they can just get in, there will be amnesty for them in time and the perks that come with it. I was no more kindly disposed toward the Canadians cheating our system than I was to any other illegal alien.

    The national immigration-reduction orgs I allied with have always worked for secured land borders, period. That includes the northern one. We’ve also worked for an overhaul of the visa system that would affect people coming in from all countries, including those “friendly” countries with current visa-waiver privileges.

    Most of our illegal immigration, however, comes from Latin America, and most of that is from Mexico. So naturally, those countries draw more attention. But we have millions of illegal aliens here from other parts of the world, and they are just as problematic and in some cases more dangerous.

  14. Preston, I’m for showing ALL of them the door. I don’t care where they come from. It’s not about cheap labor per se, as much as it is the fear of the economic reverberations in the economy, but with control of our borders, we could address these issues with work visas.

    I still think Dubyah is setting the D’s up for the ninth inning.

  15. All good and interesting answers.
    Preston, you shouldn’t assume anything about “white guilt.”
    I grew up in El Paso, Texas, and resented every minute of having to speak Spanish to go to school and work there.
    On the other hand, my family came from Russia, and immigrated, (like many Russian Jews) in the teens of the 1900s. To be honest, I have no idea if they came here legally.
    I believe, however, if security is the issue and obeying the law is also the issue, then maybe it’s not the best thing to single out brown people.
    How you frame the issue makes all the difference in the world.

  16. With all due respect Sharon, your argument is a load of weapons grade bullshit.

    The rules apply to everyone. However, if we had 20 million Irish illegals floating in on cases of Killians Red, I’d be the first one burning a box of Lucky Charms and organizing a boycott of St. Patrick’s Day.

    And just what is this signaling out “brown people” garbage – what, are you running for Tony Snow’s job?

  17. Thank goodness you almost always make me laugh, Smantix.
    Tony’s job is the LAST thing I would be doing–lying for Bush? Ha!
    Maybe we just disagree on this issue. It just seems to me that the anti immigration people would go a lot further in making their case if they didn’t single out one particular group of people.
    Donna Locke is very good about underscoring all nationalities and not just Mexicans, which is why she is an effective speaker for anti (illegal) immigration.
    But it makes me nervous when one group is singled out, beit brown or white Irish or whatever.

  18. When we have 15 million, hell, if we have 1 million illegals overrunning our borders of any nationality or race – I am going to be pissed about it.

    It’s been top news for the last few days about one guy with TB on a plane. How many Mexicans do you think would have TB out of 20 million? AIDS? Percentage-wise – what would be an accurate guess based on 20 Million US citizens?

    We demand that sex offenders notify us of their every move while we are tolerating potentially tens of thousands of sex offenders who are here illegally that we have no clue about.

    I’m paying thousands upon thousands of dollars a year in taxes when illegals are being offered a sweet, Buy-one-get-three years-tax-free deal.

    When the Irish are murdering and raping and robbing 76 year old Bellevue grandmothers – I’ll pour a case of Killians in the Cumberland. When those damned drunk-driving Swedes are killing couples on their way home from church in Lakewood – I’ll egg a Saab.

    And when the Nashville Icelandic Chamber of Commerce pens a letter to the Police Chief demanding that he not arrest anyone on immigration charges – then I’ll pick on those Bjork loving mofos.

    Roughly 1/10th of Nashville should not be here. Mexico is supposed to be our ally – but they are not. They were 60,000 votes away from voting in a Baby Chavez on a our back porch just last year and the internal threat is hardly worth the rise in cocaine purity.

  19. Sharon, I have a Latina aunt. She has been my aunt for decades. She, my uncle, and my cousins lived for years in California. They then moved to Arizona. I saw them when they came to a funeral here in Tennessee in 2002. I asked my aunt if she missed California. She waved her hand and responded with her heavy Spanish accent, “Aaa! They’re going to give it to the Mexicans!”

    Let’s just call it the way it is.

  20. Smantix, you’re right about the TB case. That guy happened to have some medical test that revealed the TB. My first thought was, Silly Americans, don’t you wonder how many illegal aliens are here with no screening and no current medical tests that would probably reveal the same results?

    I’ve told this story before, but one of the reasons I no longer fly on planes is because a friend of mine who worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention swabbed her lap tray on a plane and found TB and other scary germs.

  21. But the reason that argument does not get made is because people are afraid to say it for fear of being labeled by the PC police.

    Some countries just do not have, despite studies that show all of Costa Rica is as sterile as a surgeon’s scalpel, adequate protections against diseases that are pretty much wiped out in this country.

    We are about a generation and a half removed from people who have ever had to fear tuberculosis, smallpox, or any other historically fatal strain. Those medical triumphs can always be undone with a new introduction of a mutated strain.

    That’s why you have to get shots when you travel to certain countries abroad. But maybe that’s just a booster shot for nativist hysteria and racism. And not diptheria.

  22. The Force is strong with this Smantix dude.

    I live eight miles from the border. I had a girlfriend who taught grade school about a mile from the border, you know where the Mexican children use false addresses to commute from Tijuana to Gringoland for a free education courtesy of the political machinations of the NEA/CEA, and the largesse of the taxpayers of California. Yep, she turned up positive for TB.

  23. As a high school basketball coach, I am required to get frequent TB tests at the free clinic. Last year, I was 5th in line when I arrived…behind four Hispanic families getting their children tested for school.

    None spoke English.

    Such is life in San Diego.

    As an aside, it looks like Annika’s departure from the blogging scene has brought two additional San Diegans…Casca and Joules. Add Yiddish and myself…we could call ourselves the 6mb West Coast Banditos

    Cuz’ that’s how we roll…

    (sorry for the shameless plug)

  24. Back in the Sixties, four of my relatives spent a few weeks in Mexico. A short while after their return, two of them tested positive for TB and had to get treatment. The problem today is there may be no treatments for drug-resistant strains. It’s an invasive situation on so many levels.

  25. Well, as usual, I’m late to this party, but I need to agree with Casca on this one.

    Close the fucking borders first and last.

    Once you do that, the next step is the last one you’ll need: Fine anyone who employs an illegal $10,000 for a first offense, $25,000 for a second offense, and $100,000 for a third one. For a fourth, the slammer.

    Without the magic magnet, they all go home themselves, on their own nickel. In fact, it just reverses polarity and back they go across the Rio Grande.

    P.S. Apologies to Newt Gingrich who’s been saying this for a long time.
