Posted on 05/20/2010 9:29:33 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of Mexican President Felipe Calderon this morning speaking to a Joint Session of Congress. In his address he slammed the new Arizona anti-illegal immigration law.
Calderon said, "I strongly disagree with the recently adopted law in Arizona." When he said that, virtually all of the Democrats in the House Chamber stood and applauded him, including Nancy Pelosi, Vice-President Biden, and the assembled Cabinet. Notice Attorney General Eric Holder hesitantly standing at the 23 second mark of the video. Holder admitted earlier this week he has not yet read the law, even though he has been critical of it.
Calderon accused the law of pushing "racial profiling," which is patently false. The law explicitly prohibits racial profiling. But truth means nothing to people like Calderon and those on the Left seeking to push their radical agenda.
How dare Calderon come as a guest to the United States and then publicly blast a sovereign state for a law that has been enacted according to the Constitution.
But worse than Calderon, how dare the Democrats and the Obama Administration stand on the side of a foreign leader against one of our nation's 50 states.

Did any GOPers walk out?
And exactly ZERO republicans even attempted to show him his own immigration law. What a bunch of wusses.
will make nice cuts for campaign video’s in every race
If this video is not used in GOP campaign ads then maybe I should start planning to move to Shanghai or Hong Kong.
All the Marxist agree that they need anarchy in order to seize power.
Or a third party.
They are disgusting pussys. Purge them if they will not fight.
What kind of so called “Leader” would encourage his own citizens to abandon their country? It is really pathetic.
One who wants to be part of the ‘New World Order.’
well, lets see. When we have one side of the political spectrum, the majority, applauding a foreign who spits on on of our state’s laws, what does that say about that party or side? What idiots. the comment made that “if Repubs don’t use the vid in campaign messages, then ...”, i must add something here: If Repubs refuse to give a fighting effort to take advantage of the opportunity, than I will give them one more election to prove themselves, 2012. If they don’t, than I truly believe we will need a third party, the Conservative Party. I know this will be a dangerous proposition, but after the next two elections, I don’t think that liberals will have the upper hand either. That gives like-minded persons the chance and time to achieve a new, national party.
This jerkwad dares to stand in the well of the House and lecture US, American Members of Congress stand and applaud??!!!!
We need video of bluedogs standing up for this for the coming election. I wonder if mine did?
