Assume the position!

Si, Señor.

McCain a little less so than Obama, but just appearing at a convention for a group called “The Race” and whom advocate for an end to the Rule of Law and the sovereignty of this nation is in and of itself pathetic.

Obama spoke to the national La Raza conference on Sunday, managing to differentiate himself from McCain on the immigration issue…by casting border law enforcement agents as terrorists.

McCain picked up the soap for them today, with a message that focused more on economics than on immigration. That was a smart move, but he did end with his usual rhetoric about how once we get the border “secured” (no doubt with another virtual fence that doesn’t work) then he’ll set about to get everyone amnesty and set up the New Slave Class of the Brown People Who Do Work The White People Won’t Do.

His remarks in full are at his official site, but here is his main point about immigration. Listen to Obama’s comments and even though we’re tired of this pandering by McCain, compared to The Messiah calling our law enforcement agents terrorists, McCain sounds practically reasonable.

Let me address one other issue important to all of us. As you know, I and many other colleagues twice attempted to pass comprehensive immigration legislation to fix our broken borders; ensure respect for the laws of this country; recognize the important economic contribution of immigrant laborers; apprehend those who came here illegally to commit crimes; and deal practically and humanely with those who came here, as my distant ancestors did, to build a better, safer life for their families, without excusing the fact they came here illegally or granting them privileges before those who have been waiting their turn outside the country. Many Americans did not believe us when we said we would secure our borders, and so we failed in our efforts. I don’t want to fail again to achieve comprehensive immigration reform. We must prove we have the resources to secure our borders and use them, while respecting the dignity and rights of citizens and legal residents of the United States. When we have achieved our border security goal, we must enact and implement the other parts of practical, fair and necessary immigration policy. We have economic and humanitarian responsibilities as well, and they require no less dedication from us in meeting them.

In fact, the thing that incensed Pat S. the most was this rather remarkable comment to ‘Latinos’ by Obama during his speech. Barry seems to think that a special interest group that caters to law-breaking foreigners will control this election. Let’s make sure he gets a different lesson i November about who is really in charge–that would be Us. In addition to casting American law enforcement as terrorists, he also made note of a few other things:

Obama: Latinos Hold ‘Election In Your Hands’

In his speech Obama spoke about immigration, “the need to stop the hateful rhetoric filling our airwaves” and “bringing the 12 million people here without documentation out of the shadows” to give them a “pathway to citizenship.” Obama accused McCain of abandoning after major immigration legislation fell apart last year.

So, he promised clamp down on Freedom of Speech if it irritates illegal aliens, romaticizing the millions of illegals, while then promising citizenship and amnesty. Terrific!

And Pat’s favorite statement:

“Make no mistake about it: The Latino community holds this election in your hands,” Obama said to cheers. “I am here today to make you this promise: I will be a president who stands with you and fights for you and walks with you every single step of the way.”

That’s funny. I thought it was the American citizen who voted who hold this election in their hands. You know, I think I’m right. let’s indeed make sure Barry gets another lesson in American civics. He recently learned there aren’t 57 states. Now hell learn who’s in charge here, and it’s not “La Raza.”

The San Francisco Chronicle, in all its liberal haze, gives a big, sloppy French kiss to La Raza and tries desperately to explain why it was okay for Barry to translate “La Raza” to “The People” instead of “The Race.” Get ready for some seriously ridiculous panty twisting here.

(They don’t provide you with the link to the original story referred to in the link above. I have done so here. Apparently while more than willing to defend Barry’s pathetic spinning with some of their own, they don’t really want to make it easy for you to take a look for yourself at their rank bias).

    Some info on the filthy ICE terrorists.

    In the first nine months of fiscal year 2008 (Oct. 2007 through June 2008), ICE returned 7,345 illegal aliens to their home countries who had been living in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. During that same period last fiscal year, ICE removed 5,256. This year’s statistics reflect a 39 percent overall increase in the volume of deportations from the three-state area.

    Of the more than 7,300 immigration violators deported since October 2007, 2,024 had prior criminal convictions in addition to being in the country illegally. That figure represents a 26 percent increase in the number of criminal alien deportations compared to last year.

    ICE attributes the increase in deportations to the recent expansion of the Criminal Alien Program (CAP), which focuses on identifying criminal aliens incarcerated in federal, state and local facilities. Once a criminal alien is identified, ICE lodges an immigration detainer against the individual to ensure they are turned over to ICE for removal upon completion of their criminal sentence.

    “The increase in removals locally and nationally underscores ICE’s commitment to upholding our laws and preserving the integrity of our nation’s immigration system,” said Neil Clark, field office director for ICE detention and removal operations in Seattle. “As a country, we welcome law-abiding immigrants, but foreign nationals who violate our laws and commit crimes in our communities should be on notice that ICE is going to use all of the tools at its disposal to find you and send you home.”

    The local increase in removals mirrors a national trend. Nationwide, more than 234,000 people have been deported this fiscal year compared to about 210,000 at this time last year.

    The removals are part of ICE’s ongoing efforts to identify and arrest those who pose a threat to our community and who have no legal right to remain in the country. Those deported include convicted felons who have served time in local, county, state and federal prisons. Others were immigration fugitives who had been ordered removed by an immigration judge, but failed to comply with that order.

    This is nobama’s flop doctor chuckle speech. Later, he’ll flip his rhetoric to his mr.hide speech. I’m starting to get the rhythm now. If I where prez. I would do as the french had done in WWI to get their troops the borders of the eastern front line. They commandered every form of public transportation (taxis, buses, trains, all types of motorized and non-motorized vehicles) to get the troops to the border. I would do the very same to the 12 million law breakers in this country. No prob.

    …and you KNOW the “hateful rhetoric filling our airwaves” is a direct attack on talk radio and Tammy herself. Pathetic.

    So we’ve come to the point where our presidential candidates are hoping to win the approval of a racial supremacy group.

    When I heard someone say that La Raza had helped write the amnesty bill of 2007, I thought it was hyperbole. How could a radial racist anti-American organization even have a lobby in the Congress? I guess their office is next door to the KKK on K-street. Evidently, they have the money to draft legislation and threaten our politicians.

    Should we be thankful that they don’t call themselves “La Amo Raza”? Would that make a difference to BHO and McAmnesty?

    I confess that I have felt a bit deflated for a couple days. I realized this morning that it was this La Raza thing that has pushed me under the water. Yet, ironically, I know that’s exactly what they want — all THREE of them: La Raza, Obama, AND McCain, depending on the specific agenda. It is maddening not having even a remotely-conservative candidate and, therefore, not getting the right (literally and figuratively) message out.

    The stress is in knowing a) that McCain is our only option and b) that he’s blowing it and has a great chance to lose anyway! I’m torn between two wishes for the election results. On the one hand, I would love to have Obama lose by a landslide to make a point to him and the liberals. On the other hand, I would love to have McCain squeak by in only the slimmest of margins to make a point to HIM (and the liberals). I think I’m more concerned about the latter, because a landslide victory for McCain is more dangerous in a way — after all the yelling by Conservatives that he’s off-track with us, it would be terrible to give that smug man the sense that he was “right” after all, and that everybody thinks so. Because he will never realize or admit that we had no choice but to vote for him out of sheer desperation. J

    I suppose if we are to respect the idea of “La Raza”, then we should regard “Der Bund” of the 30’s with equal esteem. Are the candidates going to address “Corse”, “Tongs”, “Fenians”, etc.

    Why is it that the candidate who is all about transcending race spends so much time pandering to racists?? What a joke he is.
