Whatever the other effects of Arizona’s new anti-immigrant law, this whiny, bitterly incoherent essay is truly a thing of beauty:
The State Department defended Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, who at a human rights conference in Washington, expressed his regret to the Chinese regarding the recent Arizona immigration law.
Given that the “source” was Rupert Murdoch’s Fake News channel, we needn’t take this seriously, but we can still enjoy the tone of ZOMG! Americans publicly disagree with other Americans!
At a joint press briefing for the Presidents of Mexico and the United States at the White House, President Obama said, “We also discussed the new law in Arizona, which is a misdirected effort — a misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system, and which has raised concerns in both our countries.”
It’s a bad week for immigration reform when the President of the United States refers publicly to “our broken immigration system”.
In his remarks, Mexico President Felipe Calderon said, “In Mexico, we are and will continue being respectful of the internal policies of the United States and its legitimate right to establish in accordance to its Constitution whatever laws it approves. But we will retain our firm rejection to criminalize migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation will be treated as criminals. And we oppose firmly the S.B. 1070 Arizona law given in fair principles (sic) that are partial and discriminatory.”
It’s a bad week for immigration reform when the President of a bordering country says our immigration laws are flawed.
These words and actions are outrageous. No, they are (EXPLETIVE DELETED) OUTRAGEOUS!
Actually, they were pretty much all just words, and applause for them, which don’t really do anything, but still. (This post was supposed to have an animated .gif of a little boy stamping his feet, and then holding his breath until his face turned purple, but uSP don’t have that much scratch for fancy stuff no more.)
Now, for how much uSP likes us voters:
If these people are not tossed out of power next November, we will have passed the tipping point from a center-right nation to one of sheep sliding down a slippery slope to socialism.
(President Obama is up for re-election next November?)
Well, my fellow slippery sheep (?), we now know that America was a center-right nation (bwahahaha…) and that socialism consists of allowing more workers into a capitalist economy (??).
