Peggy West is your typical Democrat. That is to say, she is at once incredibly ignorant and incredibly demagogic.
She doesn’t have to have a valid reason to oppose the Arizona law. After all, she is a liberal: what part does she possibly have with “reason”?
Here’s the story via NBC affiliate TMJ4 in Milwaukee:
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Board spent part of the day debating a measure that would call for the county to boycott doing business with companies in Arizona.
Communities around the nation have passed similar measures in response to a law in Arizona that makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally.
There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography. “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate.
And here’s the video:
Make no mistake: this is no dumber than any other reason liberals have given to attack the Arizona law. The only difference is that this particular reason can be refuted with a globe or a map that would likely be found in any kindergarten classroom, whereas many of the other stupid reasons require the ability to read adult-level materials, such as the Arizona law itself.
Reading the ten page law was too much intellectual effort for Obama Attorney General Eric Holder. So he just demonized the law from a brain-dead ignorant dumbass level.
Frankly, I have more intellectual respect for Peggy West. I mean, maybe she’s smart enough to realize that she’s too stupid to be the president or the attorney general, unlike Barack Obama and Eric Holder. And that would make her smarter than both of them.
I recently posted the following under a different title. But it seems like a good thing to post again, just so we can see Democrats at work:
Watch the video of a pro-illegal immigration proponent literally threatening a racist murder spree against white people:
It doesn’t matter if virtually all the actual violent acts and threats of violent acts are coming from the left. It’s all the tea party’s fault.
It also doesn’t matter that Article. IV., Section. 4 of the Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union, a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”
It doesn’t matter that the Demagogue-in-Chief has cynically refused to do his constitutionally-mandated duty protecting Arizona in favor of holding border security hostage to his Marxist political agenda.
It doesn’t matter that Mexican drug gangs have literally taken over Arizona hilltops, where they are maintaining continuous observation posts that a helpless Arizona police force can’t do anything about:
Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona
By Adam Housley
Published June 22, 2010
Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.
The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.
“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”
It doesn’t matter that Arizona is so overrun with criminal illegals that the federal government is putting up more and more warning signs telling American citizens that they are not safe to enter their own country.
It doesn’t matter that criminal Mexican gangs are literally threatening Arizona police officers with assassination:
Arizona Cops Threatened by Mexican Drug Cartel
Ominous Threat From Mexican Dealers Is the First Directed at U.S. Law Enforcement
By RAY SANCHEZ
June 24, 2010
A Mexican drug cartel has threatened police officers in Arizona who confiscated a marijuana shipment, prompting the small town department to warn its officers to remain armed and have radios with them at all times, and keep their body armor handy.
Police and experts believe the warning against the Nogales, Ariz., cops marks the first time that powerful Mexican drug cartels, used to bribing and bullying police south of the border, have targeted U.S. officers.
It doesn’t matter if Arizona police officers are already being gunned down by AK-47-wielding drug gangs.
It doesn’t matter that an outgunned Arizona police force are literally begging for help.
It doesn’t matter that out-of-control mobs of illegal immigrants and Hispanic supporters of illegal immigration have even attacked the police.
It doesn’t matter that the Arizona law is completely constitutional, or that the Arizona law actually merely gives the state the power to enforce existing federal law, or that Arizona actually watered the law down to deal with the avalanche of lies being told by the left:
The simple fact of the matter is that the federal law is FAR “harsher” or “more racist” than the Arizona law (see also here for a more detailed analysis). The Supreme Court has ruled unanimously (that means even Ruth Bader Ginsburg voted for it!) in the 2005 Mueller v. Mena case that the federal authorities have the right to demand citizenship status at any time for any reason without the need to demonstrate reasonable suspicion [Muehler v. Mena, 544 U.S. 93 (2005) ("the officers did not need reasonable suspicion to ask Mena for her . . . immigration status.")]. The Arizona law is actually FAR more restrictive than the current federal law that the Obama White House WILL NOT ENFORCE. And the Arizona law is completely constitutional for that reason. The left has demonized, demagogued, and most certainly flat-out lied about the Arizona law.
It doesn’t matter that the leftist whackjobs – including the leftist whackjobs in the Obama administration who are going to attack Arizona – have not even bothered to read the law that they’re demonizing. Obama is suing Arizona for a law that is no different from the federal law, while ignoring all the “sanctuary cities” that have been in total violation of the federal law.
It doesn’t matter that illegal immigration is costing the American taxpayers billions of dollars every single year that are overwhelming our economy:
“Costs on average for every illegal alien headed household about $19,600 more if they consume the city services than they pay in taxes, so the rest of the taxpayers have to part costs. Schools become overcrowded, English as second language programs push out other programs.”
It doesn’t matter that the same illegal immigrants who are a burden to our country are in fact a burden to their own damn country. And that if they’re a burden to their own country, how in the hell are they not a burden to ours?
It doesn’t matter that the very Mexicans who are demonizing our tolerant immigration laws don’t seem to care about how harsh the Mexican government is about dealing with THEIR illegal immigrants.
It doesn’t matter that the violence in Mexico that is clearly coming here is so out-of-control in Mexico itself that the man expected to win election as the next governor in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas was just gunned down and murdered.
None of that matters to the despicable left.
The Democrat Party demands that nothing be done at all to stop illegal immigration because they believe they can use the issue to demagogue their way to winning the Hispanic vote. The Democrat Party demands that Arizona not be allowed to do anything whatsoever to protect themselves.
It doesn’t matter that the Democrat Party and the mainstream media that writes their propaganda are officially hypocritical, demagogic, and yes, frankly both evil and treasonous as well.
We are becoming an out-of-control society on the verge of collapse, and we need to purge ourselves of Democrats as much as we need to purge illegal immigrants.
