Mike Medved On The NAU
Recently Michael Medved unleashed an unhinged rant toward anyone concerned about the very possibility of an North American Union. And I do mean unhinged, a few small tastes to wet yer whistle...
Today I spent a few minutes listening to another nationally syndicated talk radio show and felt outraged and embarrassed to hear the guest host (an otherwise bright and well-informed conservative) facilitating the twisted, ignorant mounting public hysteria over the looming menace of a “North American Union.”Yeah, sorry about that. Here's a towel in case you got any spittle on your nice shirt there.
This paranoid and groundless frenzy has been fomented and promoted by a shameless collection of lunatics and losers; crooks, cranks, demagogues and opportunists, who claim the existence of a top secret master plan to join the U.S., Canada and Mexico in one big super-state and to replace the good old Yankee dollar with a worthless new currency called “The Amero.” Another delusion usually associated with these fears involves the construction of a “Monster Highway” some sixteen lanes wide through Texas and the Great Plains, connecting the two nations on either side of the border for some nefarious but never-explained purpose.
there’s no reason at all to believe in the ludicrous, childish, ill-informed, manipulative, brain dead fantasies about a North American Union.
Michael, I rebut you thusly...(Robert L.Bartley WSJ op-ed, July 2, 2001)(this is the infamous "there shall be open borders op-ed that clued all America into the fact that the WSJ was in the running for buttplug of the year award)
Reformist Mexican President Vincente Fox raises eyebrows with his suggestion that over a decade or two Nafta should evolve into something like the European Union, with open borders for not only goods and investment but also people. He can rest assured that there is one voice north of the Rio Grande that supports his vision. To wit, this newspaper.Does this mean there is such a thing as the North American Union? No, it doesn't. It also doesn't mention the "Amero." Tell you what it does say though, that one very influential newspaper, often considered a more Conservative newspaper especially on its op-ed page, seems to think an EU style arrangement with Mexico and Canada would be hunky-dory.
Jerome Corsi inflicts a much classier take down...here.
