combating liberalism and other childish notions


Posted by Andrew Roman on May 7, 2010

No geniuses, I think you're illegal if you're here ILLEGALLY.

And so it is that as the mainstream media continues to depict opposition to the Arizona illegal immigration law as pervasive and typical of American sentiment, reality paints an entirely different picture. As the clacking tongues, chattering skulls and rat-a-tatters of the left continue to throw cameras on every banner bouncing human rights advocate calling the new law Nazi-like – and as the media inexplicably continues to approach swindling race-baiting merchants like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for their opinions – a different story unfolds. Despite the predictable (and pathetic) attempts by Obamacrats to construct an alternate reality, the fact of the matter is: Americans – the least racist and most accommodating people on planet Earth – agree with what Arizona did.

Of course, we’ve known this for days now. Every poll that has been taken on the matter confirms that Americans side with the actions taken by the Governor and law makers of Arizona. Even after the May day marches – rife with communists, totalitarians, enviro-freaks, entitlement-happy illegals and rapidly deteriorating hippies – Americans have not shifted on the matter.

Nor will they.

According to a new Fox News poll, by a margin of better than two to one, Americans believe that Arizona was absolutely correct in dealing with the matter on its own. 61% of voters say it was the right thing to do, while only 27% say it should have been left to Washington to take care of.

Unfortunately, the sad reality is that from one administration to the next, without fail, Washington has been as effective as a breast pump trying to extract oil from a well. Tossing around meaningless terms like “pathways to citizenship” and “comprehensive reform” have done nothing to affect substantive change. Illegals continue to drain American resources and service, take jobs away from Americans, and commit crimes – including murder.

These realities, apparently, are not sufficient enough for the White House to risk offending a minority voting block.

It would be interesting, if not instructive, to question some of the 27% who still believe it is best to let Washington handle it.

Indeed, Washington should be taking charge on this matter, but they haven’t … and they won’t. Voting block appeasement has a better payoff then protecting citizens.

Dana Blanton of Fox News breaks down the new poll:

Most American voters think Arizona was right to pass its own immigration law, and think the Obama administration should wait and see how the new law works rather than try to stop it, according to a Fox News poll released Friday.

Most Republicans (77 percent) and independents (72 percent) support Arizona taking action. Democrats are divided: 43 percent think the state was right, while 41 percent think Arizona should have let the federal government take the lead.

Republican Gov. Jan Brewer said Arizona had to act because Washington has failed to stop the stream of illegal immigrants from Mexico. Demonstrators and others opposed to the new law have called on President Obama to stop it from being implemented. The president has said the law is “misguided,” and called on the Justice Department to examine it.

Significantly more voters think the Obama administration should wait and see how the new law works (64 percent) than think the administration should try to stop it (15 percent).

To varying degrees, majorities of Democrats (52 percent), Republicans (77 percent) and independents (68 percent) think the White House should see how the law works.

The poll goes on to reveal that an overwhelming vast majority of Americans – eight in ten – not only believe that the National Guard should be employed to help border patrol agents, but that fines and criminal charges should be leveled against those who hire illegal aliens.

As I’ve said over and over again ever since the law in Arizona was passed – and as I will continue to assert until my keyboard is blue in the keys – this issue is not a loser for Republicans. Only Republicans themselves will be losers if they continue to evade conservatism for some phantom all-encompassing, everyone-will-love-us-if-we-stay-in-the-squishy-middle style of politics.

Just ask President McCain.
