The Arizona Ruling: a Gift for November

By Arnold Ahlert




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Rejoice conservatives, rejoice. We have been given a gift that will keep on giving right up to November. The travesty of Clinton-appointee Judge Susan Bolton's decision blocking key components of the Arizona immigration law is a Godsend: it will be up to Democrats to explain why they stand on the side of border-busting lawbreakers--against citizens of the United States. They thought people were angry when Democrats rammed an unpopular health care bill down their throats? They ain't seen nothin' yet.

And that's the upside. Imagine if there's another high-profile murder of an Arizonan, like rancher Robert Krentz. Imagine someone being taken into custody and news reporters asking whether or not the murder suspect is an illegal alien. Imagine a spokesman for the police telling that reporter that, according to Judge Bolton's ruling, asking such a question would "preempt" federal authority on the matter, and that they, not the arresting officer nor this office, will have to provide the answer.

Unbelievable as it may seem, that's still an upside if something worse happens: imagine some members of a Mexican drug cartel killing a several Arizonans in some murderous shoot-out. Since more than twenty-five thousand people have died in drug-related violence in Mexico in less than four years--and much of that violence has taken place near the United States--it doesn't take much to imagine it spilling across the border.

Yet even if Democrats--with an ample assist from their media rat-pack buddies (see the JournoList scandal if you don't understand the "rat-pack" reference)--manage to deflect the damage from either of the above scenarios, there's one more possibility for which no amount of spin would defuse the American public's rage:

A terrorist attack perpetrated by someone who snuck into the country across our southern border.

Imagine thousands of Americans killed or wounded due to the direct dereliction of the federal government's Constitutional mandate to "provide for the common defense." Imagine U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder having to explain that while the federal government "can't be everywhere at once," that's still no reason to allow Americans in Arizona or any other state to "preempt federal law" in order to protect themselves and their families. Imagine the serial liar we have in the Oval Office trying to come up with some plausible explanation as to why border security has been held hostage to immigration "reform."

Now imagine one final thing: are any of the three scenarios mentioned above impossible?

Of course not. But even more to the point, these liberal jackboots, along with their in-the-tank judges and their media enablers, are hanging by the slimmest of threads--if nothing happens. The majority of Americans are already disgusted with this administration's ham-fisted attempt to score political points with Hispanics by taking the side of law-breakers. They're fed up with being told that anyone who dares to disagree with the liberal agenda that allows illegal aliens free reign in American cities and towns is a "racist" or a "fascist." And they'll eventually be even angrier when people like me remind them that above all else, this lawsuit against Arizona is the epitome of selective law-enforcement:

Not a single lawsuit has been filed by the feds against "sanctuary cities" who are in indisputable violation of federal immigration law.

And let's not forget the media. Much like they suppressed videos of the Twin Towers on 9/11 due to their "sensitive" nature, videos which show how out of control this reality has become will be also minimally disseminated. Democrats and their media shills know that if Americans got a semi-regular dose of such reality--a vivid depiction of what is nothing less than an ongoing invasion of our country--an already substantial majority of Americans who support Arizona would become a monolith.

My heart goes out to the people of Arizona. Unlike the media and Democrat blowhards who pontificate from afar, these Americans live with the consequences of Democrat political manipulation--and Republican cowardice--every day of their lives. It is their families who endure the reality of the illegal alien free-for-all that, at best, drains their state of vital resources--and at worst, threatens people with bodily harm.

Americans who aren't comatose know the battle in Arizona is about far more than that state--and far more than that issue. They know Democrats are attempting to perpetrate a national coup and entrench themselves in permanent power. To achieve this end they will stop at nothing. Most Americans understand that Arizona is nothing more than a stepping-stone towards the enfranchisement of millions of new Democrat voters via comprehensive immigration "reform."

Until Democrats get that, Barack and Company will hold Arizonans and the rest of the country hostage. They will hammer ordinary Americans who dare to protect themselves, even as they wink at their fellow leftists whose cities and towns protect illegals.

They will leave the border wide open in the utterly cynical hope that they can wear down the citizens of this country with a war of attrition: either you accept the legalization of millions, or we'll continue to allow them to make your life miserable--and dangerous.

Understand what they're really saying: Democrats are literally willing to risk American lives to get their agenda through Congress.

Illegals and their enablers have won the battle. But if this is still the United States of America--and I believe it is--they just lost the war. It couldn't happen to a nicer group of America-hating leftists.

Don't forget to remind them in November.
