Skip to comments.WaPo: Palin's support of legal lunacy in Arizona
Posted on 05/17/2010 3:28:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Showing her trademark reflexive know-nothingness, Sarah Palin declared yesterday, "It's time for Americans across this great country to stand up and say, 'We're all Arizonans now!'"
That would be true if "we" favored a law so flawed that not even the Arizona Association of Police Chiefs supports it.
Then Palin went a step further and blamed President Obama for Arizona's legal lunacy: "And in clear unison we say, 'Mr. President: Do your job. Secure our border.'"
Good grief. Just a little reading up on the issue should have sprinkled a bit of doubt on her barren mental landscape on this subject. Here, Gov. Palin, read the editorial we wrote that highlights how the law raises the potential for racial profiling and poisons police relations with immigrant communities, to name two areas of concern.(continued)

Jonathan is a vicious little BHO sycophant.
Capeheart is lucky it is legal to be a Moonbat!
Barren mental landscape? Oh Jonathan, go fingerpaint something.
FR moonbats agreement against Palin....3...2...1
It’s the same crap the rest of the fishrag thinks before they pretty it up.
In the face of this growing appeal to constitutionalism, the statists first and last resort is the adhominem attack.
Capehart appears to be share much with former police chief Moose.
I’m glad to see their fangs. Usually we get a Coke and a smile.
An editorial about his own previous editorial...talk about a preoccupation about yourself.
But some of the largest rank-and-file police groups have come out strongly in favor of the bill.
The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, the city police departments largest union, has promoted the bill as a common sense proactive step in the right direction in the continuing battle on illegal immigration.
The Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 6,500 officers statewide, endorsed the bill but said it had reservations over the potential costs to departments and the lack of training for local officers to identify who might be in the country illegally.
Bryan Soller, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said if officers ended up arresting large numbers of illegal immigrants, that could add to already crowded jails and costs. Mr. Soller also said departments were worried about the expense of defending any lawsuits by people contending that the law was not being enforced.
But he said he thought many concerns were overblown. His group initially opposed the bill but endorsed it after language was included that he and sponsors believe give officers discretion to use it, in part to ward off federal civil rights claims.
Capeheart will someday leave his comfortable apartment building in Northwest DC and come across a drug deal...he may try to run, but will somehow be accosted by the punks and probably at minimum, injured.
Those exact drugs were smuggled across a border he hates and the thug has a 60% chance of being affiliated with an illegal immigrant drug mule.
Liberalism is a sickness.
Oh, well, that settles, it. WaPo wrote an editorial. IMHO, if the situation calls for racial profiling, racial profile. I don't remember reading in the Ten Commandments anything to the effect that says Thou shalt not racial profile.
When liberal elistists feel threatened they invariably go to the “Republicans are stupid” card. It’s an old tradition. All “thoughtful” people just “knew” Reagan was a “blithering idiot.” And of course the constant attacks are GWB’s intelligence are fresh in everyone’s memory.
But the venom spit at Sarah Palin is the most vicious I’ve ever seen. She brings out more visceral hatred in libs than anyone I’ve ever seen by a wide margin.
Don’t forget the visceral hatred by supporters of other possible GOP candidates. I think they’re worse than the libs. You know where the libs are coming from off the bat.
Yet when was the last time they seriously attacked Governors Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty, et al?? What does that tell us?
I'm just glad these were the first few words so I didn't have to wast any time reading the rest. Thanks
So helping the feds enforce the law is lunacy. Nice one.
What this princess doesn't tell you, but a quick check of the Arizon State government's published statistics will, is that while hispanics comprised 30.9% of overall arrests in the state, they had grown to 54.6% by 2008.
Of course the government doesn't distinguish between legal and illegal arrests, but we know that Americans of hispanic descent aren't the problem here.
I do not agree with Sarah on all of her moves... I do on the vast majority. I understand why she has done certain things and as an individual, I have the luxury to be against those few things... like mcamnesty. I didn't run as juan’s VP candidate... and while I truly hate that she endorsed him, I understand it. I loved Reagan too... I worked on his campaign in my State twice... but I did not agree with everything that he did. I disagreed with him on the amnesty deal that he and kennedy allowed to take place. I disagreed when he pulled out of Lebanon... I disagreed with him when he compromised with tipp o'neill and his lap dog chrissy matthews... but I supported him on almost everything else.
I will vote for Sarah if she runs. I will NOT vote for any rino, liberal or a has-been already ran.
