Popular Los Angeles radio talk-show hosts John and Ken
have come up with a concept that they call the Political Human Sacrifice. The
idea is to try to defeat a California Republican Congressman who listeners think
is soft on illegal immigration. They're currently taking a poll of listeners to
see who the sacrifice should be. As of this writing, it appears that it may be
Congressman David Drier. The reason they're going after a Republican is that the
Congressmen being considered are each in heavily Republican districts where Democrats
almost never win anything. Thus, if a Democrat suddenly wins against the Republican
in the sacrifice district chosen, and if the win can be attributed to the political
human sacrifice campaign, the message is clear and unequivocal that the Republicans
in the district are so fed up with illegal immigration that they're willing to
sacrifice one of their own to send a message.
John and Ken figure that if they can help defeat a
squishy Republican, that other Republican politicians may suddenly develop some
back bone on the issue of illegal immigration and we may thereafter see some action
in stopping the invaders who are taking over California. As it is now, most of
the Republican politicos in the state are talking out of both sides of their mouths.
Now, those who consider that the immigration issue
is the most important of all issues probably wouldn't be able to muster enough
votes on their own on a national level to unseat President Bush--who could, in
an eyeblink, put an end to illegal immigration if he wanted to. But, combine their
votes with the anti-war votes, the votes of those who are aghast that Bush has
made the Republican Party the party of ever bigger, ever more intrusive government,
the votes of those who are horrified that Bush has turned a budget surplus into
a massive deficit, the votes of those who have lost jobs while Bush has been in
office, the votes of those who can't afford health insurance while Bush squanders
our money in his meaningless war in Iraq, and there's a chance that Bush can be
a Political Human Sacrifice and that immigration reformers would be able to take
some credit for his defeat if they ramp this up.
Would Kerry be any better than Bush on immigration?
Probably not. We're not talking better, folks, we're talking political human sacrifice
to send a strong message to politicians. And, could Kerry be any worse than Bush?
Bush has a family link to being squishy on illegal immigration. The next George
Bush on the scene is the present President's Bush's mestizo half-Mexican nephew
George P. Bush, who the first President Bush once called "one of those little
brown ones." This is the same George P. Bush who recently went to Mexico
and disrespected American law enforcement to Mexicans. The Bush family is so pro-Mexican
that it's disgusting. Want a clue about this? Remember all the phony baloney talk
about how the French and the Germans were so bad because they didn't support Bush's
war on Iraq? Well, have you ever heard a single word from Bush or his shills about
how bad Mexico is because that nation doesn't support Bush's war? Yes, dear friends,
Mexico opposes Bush's war. So, why haven't Bush and his I.Q. challenged Stepford
people given us Freedom Tacos? Why do Bush and his big mouth radio and TV shills
only bash the French and Germans? You know why. These are shallow people. They
are phony baloney bag of wind hypocrites who have no principles. These are the
people who will send your kids to die in Iraq but who will send their own freshly
scrubbed kids to the GOP convention--as did Bush--so his kids and his nephews
and other relatives can smile and joke and party and help get votes for Bush,
so he can send even more working class kids to die in his next phony war--maybe
in Iran or Syria. And, did you see Bush's twin daughters talking to the audience
about how, now that they've graduated from college, they don't know what to do
with their lives? Here's an idea, girls. Enlist in the military and go to Iraq.
If the lives of working class Americans are worth putting on the line and if our
kids are really protecting America from marching hordes of Iraqis who want to
kill us all because they hate our freedom, then the Bush kids should be helping
hold them back.
Bush is way too cozy with the Mexicans for our own
good and he constantly disrespects American citizens over illegal immigration.
When immigration reformers talk about a porous border, what does Bush do? He sends
border patrol agents to patrol the friggin' Canadian border instead of the Mexican
border. That's just flipping us all off. When the Border Patrol was running illegal
alien sweeps a few miles from the border recently, the Bush administration told
them to stop it and just go hang out at the border. What a bunch of crap. Illegal
immigration isn't a crime just at the border; it's similar to an ongoing trespass
and it continues to be a crime no matter where in the nation the illegal alien
criminals hide. If someone breaks into your house and manages to get to a back
bedroom, you don't say he's now okay because you didn't stop him when he first
snuck in. That's what Bush is saying.
guess is that, like me, most immigration reformers are Republicans. Bush has given
the bird to all of us for far too long and he's tried to manipulate us with empty
messages about patriotism and religion. The cold hearted political calculation
being made by Bush and his neocon pals is that they believe they can snub us on
immigration and then win us back with sweet nothings about prayer in schools or
some such nonsense. Their propaganda is insulting and childish and it shows that
they think we're stupid and easily manipulated. "Hey, we're letting our nation
be invaded by millions of illegal aliens who are screwing up this country, but
we won't let those lefties burn the flag and we're for prayer in schools and mom
and apple pie."
If you don't think that making Bush a Political Human
Sacrifice will send a shot across the bow of an increasingly out of touch Republican
establishment, then you don't understand politics. Yes, as a Republican, it's
going to be as tough for me to vote for Kerry as it will be for many others and
I would love to see Pat Buchanan or Tom Tancredo as President, but it's not going
to happen this election. It's time to stop wishing and time to start doing something
that will have a real effect--make President Bush a Political Human Sacrifice
