John McCain Warns Illegal Immigration Enforcement Could Lead to Riots
The National Ledger ^ | Jun 3, 2007 | John W Lillpop

Just when the dust was beginning to settle following President Bush's latest assault on common sense, in which he accused conservatives of "spreading fear" by being honest about amnesty, Senator John McCain decided that fear mongering was not such a bad tactic after all. In fact, McCain decided that fear mongering was essential in trying to sell his amnesty snake oil to a skeptical and increasingly suspicious public.

On June 2, McCain rolled out his fear-based defense of amnesty on the campaign trail in Le Mars, Iowa. Responding to a question about deportation of illegal aliens, McCain delivered the following dilly: "In case you hadn't noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,'' McCain said. "They've got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can't even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don't want that in the suburbs of America.''

Welcome to FR...

Do you suggest genocide on a regular basis, or just in this case? Are you trying to prove our opposition right by making us look like people who favor genocide?

Something tells me you aren’t a “ThompsonConservative” at all.

I may be wrong, but are you perhaps one of those operatives the White House has asked to post here? If not, then you do none of us a favor expressing things like this in relation to illegal immigration, nor in implying that you somehow represent Fred Thompson with that comment... And if so, well it pretty much figures from what we’ve been hearing lately...

It’s probably time to do some Republican house cleaning. Let’s boot McCain, Graham and any other a**hole that votes for amnesty. We should demand security first, always.

Sounds like McCain will be at the head of the pack leading them. And these people that will rise up and riot will be the same ones we want to give citizenship to? That really makes me want to support this plan /sarc. Way to go McPain.

So we have a uncivil minority, and this idiot wants to amnesty them and encourage more to come?
Reminds me of the Roman landowners who took advantage of cheap Goth labor. Hadrianople was a generation later.

Well a man come on 6 o’clock news
Said somebody been shot
Somebody’s been abused
somebody blew up a building
somebody stole a car
somebody got away
somebody didn’t get too far
Yeah, they didn’t get too far

Grandpappy told my pappy back in my day
Son a man had to answer for the wicked that he’d done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street
For all the people to see

That Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon
And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing
whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

It is time we draw that hard line.

He may have meant tear gas, which isn’t pleasant but not a gas with which to commit genocide. Tear gas is often used for riot control which is what the article was about. Let us both hope I am right. :)

Hmmm... If these fools get their way, I might run some plumbing out to the storage shed in my back yard and park a port-a-potty there. I figure it’s big enough to put bunks for about 6 illegals. I can then get my grass cut and car washed regularly. The rent money might even pay my mortgage.

What? My town has a zoning law against multi-family dwellings? No problem... my tenants have amnesty so it won’t be a problem, right? Everyone should have a few illegals of their own!

/sarc

I thought the idea that our economy must be built on the back of an enslaved class of non-person was settled back in 1865. Apparently I was wrong. Not only are these politicians traitors to our country, they also seem to believe that we need to reinstate a form of slavery.

McCain and the rest who favor this travesty are despicable.

Senator McCain apparently believes his constituency is made up of incumbents and illegals.

Well Mr. McCain, your worries about rioting can go both ways...how about real Americans rioting if this bill passes?

So you want to strip legal Mexican immigrants of their citizenship now?

That depends on whose side they’re on. This is a major cultural invasion, as well.

"In case you hadn't noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,'' McCain said. "They've got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can't even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don't want that in the suburbs of America.''

So, in effect, el Presidente Wannabe has already capitulated to the massive strength in numbers of the illegals and declared them the winners.

So, in effect, the illegals' invasion of American is a success, according to McCain.

So, in effect, McCain has declared his and his fellow politicians' incompetence in dealing with the illegals problem.

John, go back to Arizona and drool.
If illegals riot, shoot them.

NO no, news today say furor over the bill is waning and supporters now can support it.
I say write your senators, congress critters and president and again tell them how you feel.
NOt that they give a damn what you think.
Vote them out or stone them in the public square.

I wonder if McCain is hoping that his remarks will encourage them to riot now so we'll let them have amnesty to stop the riots? I wouldn't put it past him!

Recall last year how the Washington politicians cowered when the illegals demonstrated en masse in April and May.

Recall this year how disappointed the MSM was the the massive demonstratives of illegals never quite formed.
