Liberals Free Speech

Liberals never cease to amaze me at how easily and effortlessly they get away with discrimination in one form or another. This time it is Latinos.

Democrats Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson are objecting to a requirement that all presidential candidates in a debate on the Spanish-language television network Univision speak in English.

In a democratic presidential debate scheduled for Sept 9 in Miami, the sponsor, Univision television network is prohibiting everyone from speaking Spanish. It doesn’t take much to provoke a breech in the first amendment and not think a thing about it.

I don’t care who is sponsoring the debate. This is even worse than them all boycotting a FOX sponsored debate because they are cowards and don’t like the network. Every one of those candidates should step up and demand that Univision retract that restriction to speech. This time it would be for a credible reason, like discrimination.

It’s a good thing they don’t sell cheesesteaks. Just ask Joey Vento at Geno’s.

Update 6/19/07: Title change from Democrats to Liberals. It’s a better fit and not meant to disparage Democrats.

Congress Opens Cold Case Unit For Civil Rights Era Crimes

Congress moved on Tuesday toward setting aside $100 million to create a Justice Department unit devoted to investigating unsolved murders from the civil rights era.

A bill named in honor of slain black teenager Emmett Till, HR 923, is now advancing through the House and Senate, would establish a division of FBI agents and federal prosecutors who would focus strictly on the racially motivated slayings.

I never saw this coming, what with immigration and the war and Paris Hilton consuming the news, but yeah, why not? 40 years later and a different set of eyes may yield some progress and make some justice while the perps are still alive.

The Religion Of Peace Speaks To Suicide Bombings

More on the religion of Peace. A Pakistani cabinet minister said today that the decision to knight Sir Salman Rushdie was a justification for suicide bombing, after the parliament in Islamabad condemned the honour as “blasphemous and insulting” to the world’s Muslims. Question is, is Mohammad Ejaz-ul-Haq the John Murtha of Pakistan or are they all like that?

[T]he religious affairs minister, Mohammad Ejaz-ul-Haq, said: “The West always wonders about the root cause of terrorism. Such actions [giving Rushdie a knighthood] are the root cause of it. “If someone commits suicide bombing to protect the honour of the Prophet Mohammed, his act is justified.”

Close The Barn Door First

What have you done to stop this immigration bill lately? Last week went well, but Washington is going to try to push it through again this week. Forget about last week. They still haven’t gotten the message. Or rather, they still refuse to believe you. Or they have begun not listening to you any more since the country is now run by talk radio. What? Well, according to Trent Lott anyways. Call your senators again this week, right now, tell them what you support and what you don’t.

There is not one compelling reason to not close the border first. They’ve already approved and appropriated money to build a border fence. And it is the only provision in the bill that virtually everyone has voted for. But there is no will in Washington to follow through with it. Which is exactly why they include it in this immigration bill. They are twisting your arm to get you to accept automatic legalization (some call it amnesty) of millions of illegal aliens in order to close the border. That’s why the insistence for a comprehensive bill. NO, I think we need to close the barn door first.

This bill, if approved, aside from granting legal status to millions, including convicted criminals and those who were deported and came back, or never left, will also change the demographics of this country into something more resembling Americo than America. And they don’t seem to have a problem with that.

That, and you’ll have to live with the fact that those wanting this bill will characterize you as being “anti-immigration.” That slur could not be further from the truth. It is illegal immigration that most Americans do not approve of.

Both are counting on the Latino vote. Aside from being ridiculous, because they would overwhelmingly vote democrat, not republican, what we have here are democrats and republicans putting politics ahead of our country. And us citizens and legal immigrants will pay for it. Watch it happen or take action now.

UN Says WeatherMan Caused Genocide

Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the new Sec. General of the United Nations, found a way to excuse genocide in Darfur. It’s all because of that super anti-hero WeatherMan, also referred to as ‘global warming.’ Yes, you’ve seen his power to corrupt the government in Khartoum and allow radical Muslims to run through villages raping and pillaging innocent native Africans, many of whom happen to believe in Christianity. After four years of genocide, Ban has found an excuse to not get involved and absolve the UN for its incompetence. After all, the UN can’t change the weather even though they think that we (the United States) can. It’s all our fault of course.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon

His answer seems to be to continue the ‘blame America’ mantra, using the ‘global warming’ issue, to excuse the genocide and its perpetrators as something too big for them to solve. The UN isn’t up to the task of squelching the genocide because it means squelching and punishing the radical Muslims. It’s not in their DNA.
