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:
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).
