There are innumerable reasons to want our border secure. We know our infrastructure is being ravaged--emergency rooms overwhelmed, hospitals closing, our highways jammed, school rooms overcrowded, tax revenue lost, it goes on and on.
When illegal immigrants are discussed in the media, the picture painted is of a hard working family man or woman, the sort of person President Bush refers to when he pitches his "guest worker" program. "Hard working people who want a better way of life," is how he casts them.
While many fit that bill, the dirty little secret is the fact that illegal aliens are not only destroying our infrastructure by stealing valuable services such as health care and schooling, they're also committing horrific crimes throughout our great nation. The fact that police departments in virtually every major city (and not so major ones) spend their time responding to crime by illegal aliens, looking for the illegal alien culprits, arresting illegal aliens (when their local laws allow them to), processing them through the system, means more officers, more departments, are stretched to the limit, by people who shouldn't be here in the first place.
At the end of that road, our prison system then provides them with, shall we say, a quality of life (shelter, food, protection, health care, cable television, gyms) one would not find in regular housing in the pit of any South American city.
The latest insult to this nation, the latest slap in the face we receive by those who use this country like a convenient dish rag, is a continuation of that rape, but this time its a literal one.
On October 4, 2005 WKMG television in Florida reported on their website that fourteen field laborers broke into an 18-year-old womans home, dragged her across the street and then took turns raping her.
This rampaging gang of field laborers consisted of men ranging in age from 18 to 56. The victim reported they choked her until she passed out. When she awoke, they were pouring alcohol in her mouth. She was then raped by each and every one of them.
When these animals finished they pushed her out the front door like a piece of used meat. Somehow this girl managed to get to a phone where she called the police. Deputies arrested the 14 men who were still at the house where the rape occurred. They will be charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, and sexual battery by multiple perpetrators. They face life in prison if convicted.
Not until we get to the end of the WKMG website story is the fact that the rapists arent just farm laborers. Indeed, they are all illegal aliens. Only at the end of their story do we learn: Twelve of the men are from Guatemala, one from Puerto Rico and the other from Mexico.
The rather euphemistic headline is our first clue that its now very politically incorrect to even state the truth about a situation when it comes to illegals. The fact is, besides the obvious primary importance of the girl being gang raped, the other clearly important cultural element is the fact that it was carried out by a gang of illegal aliens.
This is not, unfortunately, a freakish, one-of-a-kind event. Last year, Heather MacDonald, in a piece for City-Journal which also posted at Frontpagemagazine.com, addressed the astounding impact of illegal alien criminals. In "Illegal Alien Crime Wave," she notes that in Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens.
And thats just that statistics of one city in the midst of a nationwide problem.
Our nation's security rests on our securing the borders, that's a given. Most of our persuasion and rhetoric on the issue has been based in the points I made at the beginning of this article. I contend, however, the much-ignored security threat posed by illegal aliens is at least as insidious (if not more so) as al-Qaida.
I know we all understand the fundamental threat of al-Qaida, but lets be honest: At least with Radical Islamists, we have instituted a new government agencyHomeland Securityto deal with the threat. We have instituted extraordinary security to deal with potential threats. We have created no-fly lists, terrorist watch lists, and we have even turned back international flights on which there are suspiciously named people.
We have also, appropriately and to the presidents great credit and love for this nation, have gone to war to confront those who want to hurt us.
Yet, when it comes to illegal immigration, the president not only hasnt declared war on the group responsible for a massive wave of crime including murder and rape, but wants to invite them in with a guest worker program. Instead of supporting the incredibly courageous Minuteman Project, the president calls them vigilantes. I wonder, how many rapes and murders were stopped because of their success in sealing the border in April? The Minutemen have returned for October, thank goodness, with 4500 hundred volunteers. This time, its not just Arizona, but the entire 2,000 mile Mexican/American border that is under watch.
While it is too late for the young woman in Florida, and all the others who will be victimized by illegals in the days and weeks to come, we can no longer ignore our duty to expose the dirty little secret of illegal alien crime.
In her piece, MacDonald noted:
The message could not be clearer: this is a culture that cant enforce its most basic law of entry. If policings broken-windows theory is correct, the failure to enforce one set of rules breeds overall contempt for the law.
I contend, however, its not just contempt for the law, but contempt for the people of this nation. After all, after they pushed their victim out the door like a piece of trash, their staying on the premises said volumes. They didn't expect her to do a thing about the violence they inflicted on her. The contempt was present in the act and even after the fact.
It's time for every American to exhibit some righteous contempt of our own--contempt for being used, contempt for those who commit violence, contempt for those eating away at this nation like parasites.
She's a good looking conservative woman. Don't suppose I have a chance with her do ya?
You might have a chance with her - if you're a lesbian, too.
Trapped in a mans body.
Ive been impressed with Tammy Bruce ever since I heard her story of secretly voting for Ronald Reagan. She said that when Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimers that her answering machine was full of messeges from her friends celebrating the discovery. She said she sat down and cried...then she got angry.
Well, Limbaugh once claimed to be lesbian in a man's body, didn't he?
And if as the kookburger feminists say, "All sex is rape" (sour grapes deluxe), why doesn't it apply to gay sex, too?
I'm quite impressed with her as well and for the same reasons. Actually, I thinks it's unfortunate that her sexual choices are public knowledge. Nobody's should be.
Well, I could say I've always preferred to be a man in a woman's body as often as possible, but I might get in trouble for that.
She shouldn't have to hide her preference but she doesn't flaunt it either. Think about it, do you really want to see Jimmy the weasel Carville and Mary Matalin lovin on each other?
I've emailed back and forth with her a couple of times, and she's extremely gracious in her replies.
Next time you watch America's Most Wanted, count the Hispanic names you see on one hand, and those not Hispanic on the other. I've been doing this for a while and it generally runs 50-60%. Seems disproportionally high to me, unless there are more sneaking across the border than I assumed. Could be a bias by the show's producers, or perhaps it is a culture that has no regard for the law.
She's a good woman and we conservatives are lucky to have her as an ally.
"...it generally runs 50-60%..." ?????
"...it generally runs 50-60%..." ?????
Kinda like that "religion of peace' schtick...getting pretty old ..fast
Never thought I would agree with such a statement, but I do, and enthusiastically.
try it for yourself...report back
I am not doubting you... but 50% plus 60% would give me 110%...
