RINOsaurs Marching Toward Extinction?
Excellent piece by Don Feder up at FrontPage this morning:
Politicians who want to put illegal aliens on a pathway to citizenship may soon find themselves on a pathway of their own – the high road to political extinction previously trod by Federalists, Whigs and others who lacked the courage to confront reality.Listen up, all you RINOsaurs!
Just 5 days before the vote, Busby was campaigning at a senior center in Escondido. A man who spoke Spanish said he’d really like to help the teacher, but he didn’t have “papers” – meaning he was in the country illegally.( 8-)
No problemo, Busby enthused: “Everybody can help, yeah, absolutely, you can all help …. You don’t need papers for voting.”
If you’re an open-borders candidate urging illegal aliens to commit voter fraud, best be sure a Minuteman volunteer isn’t in the audience taping your comments.
(5-term Congressman Chris) Cannon has the distinction of making McCain look like Tom Tancredo. Libertarian Grover Norquist says Cannon is helping to maintain a “pro-immigration GOP.” As with Islam, on immigration, Grover is given to silly euphemisms. He’s not talking about Republicans who welcome newcomers who follow the rules, but those who pander to Hispanics by winking at the alien invasion.Methinks you'd better start making the distinction between legal and illegal. Unless, of course, you're looking forward to early-onset Depends wearing and eating lots of Jello and rice pudding.
Cannon is, as they say in news stories, haunted by a speech he gave in 2002 while accepting an award from the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
“We love immigrants in Utah,” Cannon roared. “And we don’t make the distinction very often between legal and illegal.” Give us your law-breakers, your cheap labor and those who wave Mexican flags and pictures of Che Guevara at amnesty demonstrations.
Here's what his opponent, John Jacob, has to say...
“When we have 12 million illegal immigrants to 20 million illegal immigrants, we are already in pain. We’re losing schools. We have hospitals that say, ‘If you come in and it’s an emergency, we have to treat you.’ What does that do to your insurance?”Social dynamite, indeed. And I, for one, hope the first fuse is lit under someone who has been elected by the American people to represent them but refuses to do so. Now THAT'S what I'd call political justice.
Jacob asks rhetorically if politicians who refuse to control the borders are lighting the fuse on social dynamite.
