And other commentary on the Arizona search-the-illegals-or-you-know-people-you-racist-fucks-might-think-are-illegals-because-you-stopped-paying-attention-in-sixth-grade-and-also-flunked-humanity lawhere:
“It also makes it illegal to impede the flow of traffic by picking
up day laborers for work. A day laborer who gets picked up for work,
thus impeding traffic, would also be committing a criminal act.”
Yeah the *day laborer* is the criminal not the American who is
driving the goddamn car that’s ‘impeding the flow of traffic’ and
hiring them off the books for less than minimum wage. He’s just a
God-ferrin cap-pi-tal-list– yeesirre! Gotta love having people working
for you who you can have the cops haul off with no repercussions for
you if they ever dare to ask for a raise. It’s bloody AMERICAN.
I really can’t wait until they haul in the first Apache some 76 year
old sunbunny cracker calls the cops on for suspicion of national
trespass. Even though I already know it’s coming, the irony will be
thick enough to drive trucks on, and the resulting court case will put
the state in fucking receivership, which will make me larf and larf and
You know what makes me crazy about this crap? I mean, aside from the obvious racism and empowerment of short-sightedness and all the usual Minuteman-y hash of machismo and I-dare-ya? It’s not going to help anything. Nothing. No. Thing.
You can stop every Hispanic person on the street and demand his or her passport or green card. You can rifle through the private life of everybody who’s a shade darker than I am (and just for comparison’s sake, I basically glow in the dark). You can arrest and you can harass and you can sue and counter-sue and you can make the entire rest of your natural life about this. Go get a Jeep. Go ride along the border. Go exercise your right to bear arms and buy every gun you can and keep them all under your bed and stay up all night pointing them at illegal immigrants crossing your lawn. Go do all that.
IT ISN’T GOING TO DO ANYTHING. God Almighty, the reason we have the problems we have is that the world is profoundly economically unbalanced and until we fix that, you can build as high a fence around you as you want. Someone will be poor enough, desperate enough, hungry enough for a better life to climb it. No matter what you do. No matter how many people you hassle and fight and lock up. It’s going to keep happening.
All this is just therapy. It’s just nonsense, whispering to children in the dark that the monsters aren’t real.
