Earlier tonight, my wife and I watched the news on the television. It has been sometime since we watched the news together - being that I usually get pist off and go off on some rant about how stupid the media is and how stupid people are for believing that crap! CNN aired a segment on a sheriff who was battling illegal immigration in his town. That was not news - that was straight up propaganda; an infomercial selling social ideas. I was floored when I realized that major broadcasters now, more or less, openly condone and support racism. CNN has not reached the point of where they air their proponents saying "I hate Mexicans" right out yet; but who are they fooling with their flimsy legitimizations (i.e. ridiculous cause and effects) and use quasi-politically correct terms.
I used to dismiss the immigration issue as if it were an earnest effort to garner public opinion for the Republicans. But this is much deeper than that - the looks on those anti-illegal immigrant protesters reminded me of the photos and videos I have seen from the civil rights days. This one particular white woman was screaming her head off and you could see the deep rooted hatred in her. She was not there pushing for greater efficiency in her district; rather she was furthering her personal agenda of hate! She sounded absurd with her little one liners: "Hasta La Vista your ass to the border!" It hurt to watch her and she truly pissed me off.
It must be stated that these immigration issues that are being debated in the media are magnificently superficial; for these matters lay in deeper sciences of international trade and theory and international political economics. As such, citizens are for the most part ignorant to the specifics surrounding international trade negotiations in both the public and private spheres. But these people seem to have lost their minds; abandoned the little they do know about economics (the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer) and have ultimately jumped on this bandwagon chastising other poor peoples!
There is so much that needs to be done in this world - people starving; people needlessly dying from preventable/ curable diseases; the use of torture... And these people are exerting their energy at having people detained and deported for not complying with the federal government's bureaucracies!
Honestly, if I was a gangster, which I am not, I would extort groups like the minutemen.
