Arizona's shot heard round the world

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood;
And fired the shot heard round the world.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Concord Hymn"

As the Washington buffoons cry about the need for immigration reform, Arizona has passed the kind of immigration reform we need. It's a radical step only in the minds of the Leftist Establishment. All it does, really, is treat criminals as criminals exactly the way the federal government is supposed to do, but doesn't. Not out of some twisted version of benign neglect, but a very malign neglect. The power structure in this country wants population replacement. Its purposes can best be realized by importing a majority of Third World peasants who are easily manipulated via their dependence on the government.

The reactions from the political/alleged victim group/mainstream media axis could have been scripted in advance.

Emperor Obama denounced the law, calling it “misguided’’ and said it threatens to “undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.’’ He probably had to bite his tongue to refrain from saying Arizona "acted stupidly." Instead, he declared his view that we Americans, with our cherished notions of fairness, want a level playing field for police and criminals.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer: "We do need comprehensive immigration law in this country but not like this. This law is mean-spirited and I'm opposed to it." Comprehensive immigration law: politicobabble for open borders and amnesty.

New York Mayor Bloomberg: The Arizona law "sends exactly the wrong message." Exactly the message he and his fellow immigration pimps don't want to hear.

Rev. Jim Wallis:
The law signed today by Arizona Gov. Brewer is a social and racial sin, and should be denounced as such by people of faith and conscience across the nation. ... Enforcement without compassion is immoral. Enforcement that breaks up families is unacceptable. This law will make it illegal to love your neighbor in Arizona, and will force us to disobey Jesus and his gospel. We will not comply.
Reverend Wallis, you are a fool and a pompous asshole. Preventing a large-scale invasion is neither a social nor a racial sin; it is a legitimate function of government. We are not breaking up anyone's family: illegals who knowingly chose to sneak into the United States in violation of our laws are responsible for any resulting family break-ups.

You, with your political leftism cloaked in religious platitudes, are displaying your own moral ignorance and selective compassion. You have no compassion for the citizens of Arizona who are tired of the trespassing, violence, environmental destruction, drug dealing, gang warfare, and welfare dependency of your precious illegals.

"This law will make it illegal to love your neighbor in Arizona"? That has to be the most laughable statement anyone will ever make on this subject. Don't try to top it for sanctimonious absurdity, Rev. You won't be able to do better.

Despite the howls of outrage from political bosses, the compliant Stalinist media (which invariably have written their "news" stories not about the law and the reasons for it, but about protests against it), and Left-wing Fundamentalist preachers, Arizona may have turned a page in American history. A state has openly, legally thumbed its nose at Washington's claim to rule everyone and everything.

Arizona is leading the way, but others are taking up the flag. Florida (and other states) have voted to prevent enforcement of the Bad Medicine Act.

Naturally, the federal commissariat will turn its guns (figuratively, one hopes, not literally) on resisters. Health News Florida reports:

Well said. During Cold War Wallis was a devout shill for the Soviet Union. He preaches the Gospel According to St. Marx.

Really? I never heard of him, but I can believe it.

"The Gospel According to St. Marx"! That's very funny!
